    Grow Your Own

    There will be flexibility and there will be a limit to that flexibility as well. Plants can grow a lot in a day and that daily photography is necessary, especially for seedlings. If your stop motion video is full of gaps, you will not win a wishpoint. You will be eligible for the many other rewards. If you want to attain this wishpoint, make photography of your garden part of your daily routine. Do it when you brush your teeth in the morning or when you vote for free credits. Taking a single photograph won't take as long as either of those tasks.
  3. The MagicDuel Community Garden will be hosting an ongoing contest for the entire community. One mission of the MagicDuel Community Garden is to encourage all members of the community to grow gardens in their own part of the world. Now, with Mur's blessing, we are hosting the Grow Your Own contest and offering substantial rewards for players who demonstrate some gardening prowess. The goal of the contest is simple. Grow a plant. Document your progress. Participants will need to document their progress from seed to harvest with photography. Your plant should be labeled with MagicDuel a

  5. Any construction tools available will be most welcome. We will certainly need a saw. Please reply or PM if you can bring a tool.
  6. There is a fun new contest coming to MagicDuel. I will leave the details for the Mid-Winter Festival on February 2. I want to give you the basic idea, so you can all begin to prepare as you enjoy the light of the full moon tonight. This contest will in some ways be very similar to a contest hosted by Akasha in Spring 2010. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/6918-spring-contest/ http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/6920-autum-contest/ One thing that will differ from the original contest is that this contest will muddy the line between the realms, if you take my meaning. You
  7. It's the middle of winter and I know what's on everybody's mind. Spring gardening! The MagicDuel Community Garden will be holding festivals during each of the eight Sabbats of the year. These include solstices, equinoxes, and the four dates right in the mid seasons. These include Groundhog Day, May Day, and Halloween. Gardeners around the world use these dates to determine planting schedules, along with moon cycles (which we will also be observing). These dates will be used for a number of garden events, including plot management at the community garden. This fes
  8. Will you give your values for sharptear and nutcracker? If nutcracker is a little more than 3gc, then my sharptear would have to be near worthless (which it may well be) to be outbid by DD. Same with my hug In fact, if you're accepting creatures, is it reasonable to post a current price list at the bottom of the original post each month? Maebius' offer with nutcracker last month the me for a bit of a loop. I decided to wait to see if you would accept and accidentally missed the rest of the auction. I'm still a little confused how you accepted half a nutcracker for payment, but I'm happ
  9. I wish for an independent rainwater harvest tool and four casts of Weather - Mild Rain. I intend to provide and collect rainwater for the community garden.
  10. ॐ. It feels like home. π. Especially blueberry or raspberry π. I also like L, which makes me think of my wife, lovely Lydia Lynne.

  12. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9406-community-garden/page__st__40#entry124867 Link to my actual post above. I started in this topic and drifted toward the garden and ultimately posted in the community garden subforum. Still, it seemed appropriate to post here.
  13. Dual issue here is in game rules and forum rules. Do the log and onscreen chat need to meet different standards? I think Chewett could maybe clarify about what constitutes a violation of our terms and conditions.

  15. Fun topic, but a could hardly agree with you claiming the SoE are clearly the Jedi Knights. If anyone at all would fit the bill, it would be SotIS. What about that band of Jawas on Tatooine? TK

  18. What do you think about a ceremony during Samhain (also called Dia de los muertos, or Halloween), which is the Sabbat marking the end of the harvest and the beginning of the winter freeze. It's the time of year most associated with death in cultures where people depend on stored food to survive the winter.
