The all hallows night is almost upon us, and it's time to get you cauldron at the ready!

This is a 3 stage quest and all stages should be completed to be eligible for any winning position.

Part 1: Create your own version of Shakespeare's "3 Witches" cauldron scene.

Part 2: Name and describe the created potion.

Part 3: Create a cauldron!

Notes:

  • The ingredients and chosen "Three Witches" should all be MD based (though a little slack for wording is allowed here and there).
  • The connection to Witch>Wording>Ingredients will mean a better score at the end.
  • Humour and/or things/mixtures that are disgusting will mean a better score at the end.
  • Uniqueness and creativity in all three sections will mean...you guessed it!...a better score in the end!
  • Cauldrens may be made out of any sort of material you like, even drawn or painted!
  • Uniqueness and creativity will be the highest deciding factor on a winner.
  • The better the conformity to Halloween, the better the score in the end.
  • Please include a handwritten player name and ID with any submitted cauldron picture.
  • Here is the scene for those of you that do not know it:
Spoiler

  1 WITCH.  Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.
       2 WITCH.  Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd.
       3 WITCH.  Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!
       1 WITCH.  Round about the caldron go;
    In the poison'd entrails throw.—
    Toad, that under cold stone,
    Days and nights has thirty-one;
    Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
    Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
       2 WITCH.  Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the caldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
       3 WITCH.  Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
    Witches' mummy; maw and gulf
    Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark;
    Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark;
    Liver of blaspheming Jew;
    Gall of goat, and slips of yew
    Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse;
    Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;
    Finger of birth-strangled babe
    Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,—
    Make the gruel thick and slab:
    Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
    For the ingrediants of our caldron.
       ALL.  Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
       2 WITCH.  Cool it with a baboon's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.

Quest begins from now (27/10/2016) and shall close no later than one week from this date (3/11/2016). Winner will be decided by a panel of judges.

Please send all entries to me in a forum PM titled "Cauldren 2016" (Anything title otherwise will not be read)

Rewards:

1st: 1 WP/Elucubrat

2nd: WP/Elucubrat (whichever is left)

3rd: LoC Spell Stone + 1 Top Spender Ticket + 1gc

Part #1
A dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.     

        Enter the three Witches.
        WITCH#1 : dst
        WITCH#2 : Lintara
        WITCH#3 : Syrian

WITCH#1. Thrice the tormented soul howled'd.
WITCH#2. Thrice and once, the Pimp fart'd.
WITCH#3. Pickaxe bashes:—'tis time! 'tis time!
WITCH#1. Round about the caldron go;
         In the solid stench throw.—
         Grasan, that under constipation,
         Days and nights has thirty-one;
         Toxidendrite bite got,
         Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!
ALL.     Double, double toil and trouble;
         Heat pours, and caldron bubble.
WITCH#2. Bones of a fallen Sharptear,
         In the caldron boil and bake;
         Lumber of oak, and fenths of log,
         Ashes of any, and bushies of hog,
         Wasp's water, and Fine Sand,
         Exfoliated skin from Grasan hand,—
         For a blast of powerful trouble,
         Like a knator-stew boil and bubble.
ALL.     Double, double toil and trouble;
         Heat pours, and caldron bubble.
WITCH#3. Skull of priest that burned the book;
         A shiny fossil from a old crook;
         From the wasteland, from the dark;
         An engraved shade on the tree bark;
         Torments of all in a selected few
         Sticky Goop from we all chew;
         Grasan Ferment you must seep
         To see wasteland full of sheep;
         Let the shadows embrace all
         Liquid dust pour from your jab,—
         Make the broth thick and slab:
         Throw the clay into the boil,
         For the ingrediants turn to soil.
ALL.     Double, double toil and trouble;
         Heat pours, and caldron bubble.
WITCH#2. Drip it into the pumpkin pie,
         Just smell it and you shall petrify.
        
Part #2
Petrify Pumpkin Pie
         A Pie made in halloween that is so putrid that will petrify anyone who smells it.

Ha! I would have never beaten darky.

 

This is what I started working on but never finished....

 

The scene takes place in a cave. The cave is decorated with a pink wallpaper with hearts and flowers, lots of modern furniture, bling bling hanging of everywhere
and also scented candles that can cause anyone nausea.
The 3 witches sit on recliners. The oldest one (around 70) is dressed in a flamboyant red and black dress with lots of ribbons and strings. She smokes a long cigarette. In her right hand she holds an Iphone 6 with a cauldron image on it.
The second one is a skinny type with a poison green dress, in her late 60's. Her hands shake a bit when swiping the images on her phone (a cheap Chinese one).
The 3rd one is the youngest (50-ish). She wears a scarlet suit (pants and coat) with high heels and a lot of marble strings hanging on her neck. She has a Vertu phone which she can barely use due to her long and bling-binged nails.

 

Witch 1:
Dear beloved, we have gathered here to create a potion to cure stupidity!
Witch 2:
And low IQ!
Witch 3:
And small brains!

Witch 1:
All right sistas! Let's begin to cure the world of small diii aaa...small brains!
Witch 2:
You lead sista!
Witch 3 just nods taking off an imaginary lint off her scarlet suit.

Witch 1:
Bones of a rat
Tongue of a bat kite
Sticky goop in the

      A simple enough quest, and an old favourite!  Turn one of your favourite scenes into a Halloween extravaganza!
      Submit entries here by Sunday 20:00ST for after that a voting poll will be opened so that the public may choose their winner! (Polls will close 24 Hrs after opening)
      Only one winner will be chosen, so please note: For any quest tagged with "Elucubrat", if you have already won one, the creature will automatically go to the next runner-up, and so on, until it finds one (I've been told they don't play well together and get jealous for their master's attention!) . If the winner should have won a Elu already, please message me so we can work out another prize.

      For this quest, make or bake a fiendishly tasty treat that is disgustingly repulsive to one's eyes!
      Submit your entries by 22:00 ST Sunday for after then a poll shall be opened for the public to choose their winner! (Polls will close 24HRs thereafter)
      Only one winner will be chosen, so please note: For any quest tagged with "Elucubrat", if you have already won one, the creature will automatically go to the next runner-up, and so on, until it finds one (I've been told they don't play well together and get jealous for their master's attention!) .

      Greetings Magic Duellers,
      for this year's Halloween I'm willing to organize a spellcasters tournament, open to everybody.
       
      Contestants are required to set nice spell-words for their favorite spells (MD spells - either regenerable or spell stones).
      Each contestant will "battle" against another - direct elimination - using one cast of one spell of their choice.
      In each battle, 2 judges will rate your magic arts under these criteria:
      1- how fancy/inspiring/evocative your spell words are;
      2- how appropriate your spell words are to the actual spell;
      (e.g., "may the fleas of a 1000 camels infest your armpits" might be appropriate for a "attack-lock" spell, but not for a "mirror ritual"...)
      3- how much Halloween feeling you managed to put in your magic.
        
      The contestant with highest score wins and passes the turn.
      Each contestant may only use a combination of spell / spell-words once: if they pass the turn, they have to battle either with another spell or with different spell-words.
       
      To apply, post here your name and ID by 21 October.
      After that date, there will be a random matching to determine who fights against whom in the first turn.
       
      Rewards will depend on the number of applications, if 8 or above I'll toss in a Horseman creature for the winner.
