Reporter Quest: Who killed Eon?

Recommended Posts

This is my first mini quest. Be indulgent. And make it a success please.

Eon was killed ingame a couple days ago. Then she was revived. I asked around what happened, but people were rather silent about it, or elliptic in their answers. This quest is very simple: you are a reporter Free Lance. [b]You have to investigate about facts and make an article that will be published in Legend Speakers forum.[/b]

The basic question you have to answered:
[color=#4B0082]- [i][b]who killed Eon ?[/b][/i][/color]
[color=#4B0082]- [i][b]why ?[/b][/i][/color]
[color=#4B0082]- [i][b]who revived her?[/b][/i][/color]

You can of course elaborate around that. Style of your article is free, but it must be an informative article based on facts, not a polemist entry supporting a judgement on actions of individuals involved in the murder.

I will ask my fellow legend Speakers members help me judge the submissions following those criterias:
- quality of information contained in the article (the more unknown an information is before the article is published, the better quality)
- conciseness of the article (go straight to the point, imagine you are being published in a daily newspaper)
- objectivity of the article (well, if we find it too subjective, it will get penalty points)
- other secondary criterias that I won't disclose (and no good English is not a criteria as I can't judge it... just make it so that I can understand, and most of the other readers will be able to understand too)

There is no restriction in the participants. So yes, the murderer and the victim are more than welcome to submit their contribution.

[b]Send the article to me as forum PM please[/b]. I will publish all submissions after the event is closed. You may require anonimity if you wish so.

[b]Deadline: Sunday november 27[/b] midnight server time.

Oh yes, [b]rewards[/b]....

[i]EDIT: we got support from very generous sponsors. I will split and freeze prize list later on, depending on the number of participants and quality of submissions. So far we have enough to reward the 3 best submissions and maybe add some consolation /specific prizes.[/i]
So far we got the following in stock:

[b]One Wishpoint[/b] sponsored by [b]Dark Priestess[/b] (Peace ingame), reserved for the winner.
[b]1 Gold and 4 silver[/b] sponsored by [b]Tarquinus[/b] (Keith Moon ingame sponsorship)
[b]1 Marksmen[/b] aged 80+ sponsored by [b]Neno Veliki[/b]
[b]1 Pimp aged 230+ with Black tear token[/b] and [b]2 silver[/b] provided by myself.

Come on now. Take your pen and let us know the true story of Eon's death.

Thank you neno! Much appreciated.
Tarquinus actually added 2 silver for the 3rd place too. I will edit the list of prizes later on, but that would probably look like:
- winner: his choice of Marksmen or Pimp + 1 gold + A silver.
- 2nd place: leftover Marksmen or Pimp + 3 silver
- 3rd place: 3 silver.

Of course if enough submissions are received...

And to put everybody on the same level, it seems that a bit of information can be found [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/10993-recent-activity-log/"]here[/url]. Check it out, complete it, make an article with your findings, and help the rest of the community understand what happened!

I plan to submit an article, though I am only starting investigation now. Since I have come back after the beginning of the Eon incident, maybe I can offer a less biased opinion. Posting just to let people know there is some competition, however little I can offer. Could we see some of the other writing after the competition is complete? I like reading other's work!

Yes Krioni, I plan on publishing all work I will receive. :)

And don't worry about not witnessing the murder... investigation can bring great results!

I already received a couple submissions. I suggest writers to not wait the last minute to send their work: that would help in a faster evaluation after the deadline. And you all have the right to amend/correct/complete the articles you send me, prior the deadline of course.

Now here is a thought.
[color=#4B0082][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]- [i][b]who killed Eon ?[/b][/i][/font][/color]
[color=#4B0082][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]- [i][b]why ?[/b][/i][/font][/color]
[color=#4B0082][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]- [i][b]who revived her?[/b][/i][/font][/color]

So if somebody talks with Eon he gets a free WP?

Well, go talk with Eon. And then:
- see if you get a WP
- if yes, tell us if you consider it's a free WP

Other option is wait and see, and then complain that someone got a WP.

To answer the PMs I have received in and out of game, I feel I have helped enough with the logs. I am going out of state today and will not be back until after this quest is over. There is enough information on all but the resurrection part in the log I posted to do a fine article.

Quest is over now. We have received 8 (I think!) submissions, which should allow to distribute the prizes. Please allow us around one week to judge all entries and define the winners!

Thanks to all participants and the people who accepted to help them by providing information about what really happened... and see you soon to disclose some interesting information about the death and resureection of the Boss Heads Master Eon!

Results are annouced [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/11115-results-reporter-quest-who-killed-eon/#entry97358"]here[/url].

Thanks for your offer Seigheart. Judging is over already. As a personal ethic, I don't let sponsors take part into jury of my quests. Please confirm or remove your offer of sponsorship after checking the results. If you remove it, we will find another solution.

dst, all articles are published as I said earlier in that thread. I claim my innocence here!

ShadowSeeker, please check the results, if you believe 2 WPs are too much, I guess there is an easy solution. ;)

Thanks to all participants and sponsors... and go check who killed Eon, why and who revived her!

Are you willing to disclose the secondary criteria now that the quest has been decided?

I'm also a bit confused how one of the winning articles was rated first for the information disclosed when that information was not, by the author's own claims, not factual.

Secondary criteria were Originality and Style of the article.

I will not comment further the rating of each articcle, as it would lead to endless discussions. I just remind that the Jury has reached a consensus, although 2 of his members were absolutely clueless about the authors of the articles. There must be a winner, it doees not mean the winner has reached a perfect result! :)

Ivorak, I suggest you take time to read thoroughly all articles to make your own opinion if you wish so, particularly on the point you mention. That should be easier now that I have edited the results post, that was altered by some unwanted strange characters.

TK sponsorship still stands.

Just a side note, I had no intentions on judging any result. I just wanted to make sure there were actual submissions.
That's great news. Thank you and the Treasure keepers! :)

You have an e-mail pending for a few days in regards to this. feel free to answer it for letting me know how to distribute the reward.

      So, the anniversary is over, but a new wave of plushies is descending on the realm.
      As you may have noticed, Cyrus Siridius has been caught trespassing Necrovion and met a premature end.
      Who is this fellow? What do we know about him? This is what a very accurate autopsy revealed:
      You have one week (deadline: May 11 23.59 server time) to draw an avatar for Cyrus Siridius.
      Quoting Aia, the drawing should be in black and white (no colours). Ideally, the proportions should be scalable to an Avatar (which, when scaled down, is 160 pixels high and 100 pixels wide) - however, the artwork should be much larger than this, so that it can be scaled down.
      The best one, based on forum reputation, wins my entire collection of plushies + 13 silver coins (courtesy of TKs) + a little something else.
      In case of a tie, the player with lower Mind Power wins. Should this criteria fail to name a winner, the lower Mind Power with lower number of plushies wins.
      Cyrus Siridius is welcome to participate in the voting, and his vote will count x 10. (Ideally, he gets to keep the avatar, in case avatar managers agree)

      Hello everyone!
      I am hosting another quest for the Anniversary!
      This quest is all about waking up one morning with no idea what happened the night before! (Some of us have there several times)
      Now it is going to be a little something like a murder-mystery style thing. I am going to give each player who registers 3 clues. Players can share clues. Players can also share fake clues.
      However, there is going to be an "actual version of events" that happened. Each player should submit their version of events to me via forum pm at the end time.
      The player who's story is closest to the real thing (by anonymous double-blind judging), shall win! (this is why you can share clues, but every clue you share with someone else makes them have more total clues, thereby giving more information about the story.)
      1 WP for the best submission (either creative or closest to pre-determined story). Anniversary creature for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, if 2, 4, or 6+ players participate.
      PLEASE PM me in the same message I sent you your clues in. This will reduce the sheer bulk of messages in my inbox. K thanks, bye!
      To get your clues, and therefore participate, you must register here!
      Registration closes by 5:00Pm ST on 4/14/20
      Participants so far:
      The un of god
      The god of quandries
      An oven
      The A-lister
      The horologist
      An erstwhile Princ
      The Twilight's Hope
      The eisoptrophobic

      "A recent tour of the Sage's Keep has discovered a new room! While walking around, Chewett2 discovered a new room within the building. How could a new room in a building that has been occupied for 15 years just now been found, you ask? Especially when this building is so big on the outside, yet so small on the inside! Who knows, the obviously original wookiee (chewett2) must have found a hidden gem! Your quest is to describe this new room. Contestants should find ways to describe its layout, its content, its appearance, and even where it is with the route to get there. Players should focus on quality in this contest,  not the speed with which they submit their efforts. Artwork is suggested, it is not required, but it will add points to your score. Artwork will not be graded on talent, but if you draw 4 lines and a stickfigure, it will be graded on effort (to the best of the judges' abilities). This quest has the potential to shape or mold the world around it, thus its rewards have the potential to shape the world of its winner. Remember the context of the sage's keep: who calls this building home? What function has it served? What could be hidden for 15 years? These are all questions that you could strive to answer in your description (they are not necessary to answer, however, nor will answering them impact judging in any way). Good luck!
      Rewards:WP for best one. Unique item for first as well.
      Anni for first, second, third if (2, 4, and 6+ players attempt it). Plushies for all.
      Players shall have 2 week to send, via forum PM their submissions to me. They will be submitted to judges in a single-blind fashion.
      Starts on 4/17- ends on 5/5."
      If you are looking for some inspiration, check out a similar quest. However, the judges have reviewed all of these entries and will there discard your entry if it can arguably be considered a copy of one of these.
      I will post submissions here when judging is completed.

      In the spirit of Murmas, I wish to run a quest, and seek sponsorship for the quest rewards.

      Rewards thus far:
      1 Voice stone (donated by Burns)
      6 Heat stones (donated by Lintara)
      630 Iron Ore (donated by Fang Archbane)
      6 gold coins (donated by Treasury - 3 to first, 2 to second, 1 to third place)

      As it were that Murmas approacheth, so must good spirits.
      Thine quest were so:
      Write a Murmas poem, or song, or chant. Thine offering must rhyme, and reference the realm in some way, either of the land, or its beings, or otherwise.
      Magic-speak, or archaic-speak, is encouraged, as were wit, and humour, for which further reward should be bestowed.
      I seek an offering that may bring mirth and cheer to others this Murmas, which were that which above all must affect the final judgment.
      As to the length of thine submission, there remaineth no limit; yet, one must remain entertaining throughout.
      Of judgment thereof, such were that of each of the following, a score of up to ten points should be given:
      1. For magic-speak, or archaic tongue, or other mystical construct
      2. For rhyme and prosody

      4. For support of those of the realm, that were not scored of the judges.
      I shall accept submissions, within the realm, or within this forum, and they shall be anonymous until they are scored.
      I would like to have the entries in by Murmas, yet, I know that the other-realm doth pull one away at that time, and so, I shall accept submission if it were late. These may be given to me within the realm of Mur, or within the forum of Mur, afore the great Murmas celebration.
      Merry Murmas, and may good fortune befall thee.

      Ladies and gentlemen, here's a new quest for all of you.
      It's a chance to obtain a headless skeleton, but most of all a chance to unleash the dark side of your creativity. 
      You have to create/design a new undead / build-able creature.
      So, first of all you need to put down a list of the ingredients you're going to use.
      You can use only items or resources already existing in MD.
      That said, all categories can be used: resources, common items, personal items, default items… everything, but already implemented.
      You can use these lists as official reference on what's on the market right now: Items, Resources.
      Second, once you have the ingredients and all the needed quantities, you have to detail all the steps of the procedure (the recipe, if you wish) to obtain such a creature.
      Third, your creation needs a name and an image; therefore you have to draw the result of your experiments and name it.
      The drawing must follow these rules:
      1 drawing per submission, hand-made, original (not copied), black/white, MD noted on one corner - NO player name, NO player ID. 
      Submissions are to be sent to me via forum PM, not posted on the forums.
      I will act as a filter and forward your submissions to 3 judges (unaware of the authors).
      All participants will receive either an unholy priest or a tormented soul.
      Main rewards will depend on the n° of participants:
      if n° < 10: best submission gets a headless skeleton;
      if n° > 10: best submission can pick either a WP or a headless skeleton, second best submission gets the remaining one.
      if n° > 20: … surprise!
      Deadline: 31 May at midnight.
      If you wish to judge this quest, please send me a forum PM.
