Since nobody has posted anything I figured I would as today and tomorrow were suggested. Perhaps delaying a bit more to garner more interest may be needed. What server times work best for everyone. Personally I feel that 22:00 server time may work well.
As for nominations:
Mag and Aia are deserving of some recognition.
Please suggest more times so we can come to a consensus for the ideal time.
Please suggest more people for medals try to include which ones.
Because of the excitement caused by yesterday's find, I am making a quest rewarded with a WP!
The find is different from the topic of this thread, but it started there...in ''European'' demonology, there are six types of demons. The uppermost demons inhabit an area known as the ‘fiery’ (diapyron), the second category the ‘airy’ (aerion), the third the ‘earthly’ (chthonion), the fourth the ‘watery’ (fresh and salt: hydraion and enalion), the fifth the ‘sub-earthly’ (hypochthonion) and the sixth the ‘light-hating and insensible’ (misophaes and dysaisthêton).
What I want you to do is research the origin of this categorization, which is much more ancient than, say, 500 AD, and write one-two paragraph as to what you think the origin is. This is half the task. The other half is argument in one-two (or more) paragraphs whether the creatures of MagicDuel respect this categorization (of six realms) or not. The paper shall be submitted to me, on whatever channel you prefer, and I shall be the sole judge.
The right answer for part 1 and good arguments for part 2, or the closest answer to the truth for part 1 and good arguments for part 2 will get a WP. If I get more submissions, I will add a second and third place. The winner gets a WP with a rating of 5 minimum, which can go up to max depending on the quality of arguments for second task.
I reserve the right to publish the winner's answer, although as a winner, you can try to convince me I shouldn't...you might win. Also, the deadline for this quest, which might involve a lot of reading is 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, I close it if I get no signals from anyone or get at last 1, but nobody announces me they want to try it. If I get a message from anyone the reading is not done yet, I will extend the period by n weeks after the 2 weeks have passed.
If I forgot to mention something, post here
(Also, this quest really deserves a WP, because the research on the subject leads to finds that contradict much of what you know and is 'the establishment' of today; nobody likes change, but for a researcher, going against the established truth is a fun fun activity)
(P.S. I attached a pic from HoMM because in my opinion it respects this classification to a letter)
Do you like a story? Do you like a race? Do you like a quest on the anniversary? Do you like creatures that you can't get your hands on anymore?
If so, then keep an eye out for this quest:
He's Lost His Marbles!
The Willow's Shop Keeper has lost his memories and marbles! Help him get them back! This quest will be really hard for MP3s, and probably really easy for most MP5s. No alternates may participate. This quest shall take you throughout the whole of MD! It shall take you into every land (if you're MP5) and you will learn a little bit about what each land has meant to me!
how to start: Say a greeting to Willow's Shop Keeper
requirements: Not in jail, dead, or on Gateway Island, able to roam mainland freely
rewards: Broken into MP tiers, 1 winner for MP3, 1 for MP4, and 2 for MP5-MP7. Winners will get various creatures, gold coins, and possibly a WP. An Ancient Lorerootian Archer is in the mix as a reward! (my boy has 4535 age, lol).
Every participant shall receive 1 silver if they complete quest.
Quest is over on May 5th, no longer on April 25th. Please use the time wisely.
The race is almost exclusively a clickie-quest, though there are segments and work-arounds that are not clickie-based.
You do NOT need to register on this thread. I will be post here, in a calendar event, and through mood panel to discuss when race starts once I have timeline of anniversary. If you have questions, you can forum pm before race starts.
As of 5/7 this quest will remain open. the above mentioned rewards will not be available. Other rewards will be given as they come available.
Update June 1st, 2020: quest is ready for permanent launch, just needs permanent rewards.
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

"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.
