'Evening! I hear there's a scholarly interest in the lands of Marind Bell, pertaining to mandalas - some SoE members are quite interested in that imagery with 'cosmic' or 'absolute' meanings. What that means is, there's ways to make money! Or get some anniversary creatures and bonuses. SoE will pay a hefty sum for a mandala with MD symbolism, but it must be within standards (hence they will judge the submissions) AND all rights to that imagery will transfer to said alliance. As for the manner of presentation, it can be drawn on paper, digitally created, or even crafted. Feel free to submit it to me (Ungod) or post it in this thread - winning submissions have the chance of remaining anonymous. Ah, the deadline? Until the end of this month. So let's get down to business - what hefty price are we talking about? 1st place gets an anniv crit and 1 goldenavitoken, 2nd 1 anniv crit (and 1 gold if SoE wants to acquire the rights*), 3rd 1 anniv crit (and 1 gold if SoE wants to acquire the rights). *Disclaimer: if SoE decides to acquire the rights for that mandala, you can't refuse What? That's not enough? That's the offer, take it or leave it. This scholarly interest is only in bud; who knows, it might be more profitable in the future... (a little help for those confused by the many types of mandalas:
Some of you may remember a Poem contest Emerald organized at the Whisper Alley. We played with the thought make it again, and turn it to become annual contest, a sort of tradition, and I decided to add one more discipline, drawing for start, later on perhaps even more, with purpose to encourage creativity and art. The contest will probably start somewhere in the beginning of November, due to the Halloween festival that is coming up (don't want to mess with it). Rewards will be at least 1 WP for best work in Poem section and 1 WP for best work in Drawing section, perhaps even more rewards if some sponsors come along the way. It will probably be held at Whisper Alley in Marind Bell, and make it a traditional place of this gathering. The reason why I am posting this now is for you people to get your works prepared so I can announce the hour of the contest meeting with more flexibility. This is the theme of the contest: Drawing: Make a drawing (with a pencil) about your interpretation of enlightenment. Make large "MD" initials in the corner of your drawing to show that it is really your drawing. Poem: Make a poem about your interpretation of a seeker (as a general term). Additional infos will be posted here afterwards, this is all you need to know for now.
