Of Memery and Schemery


Recommended Posts

  

Almost one year hence, I did note of this declaration by none other than the Grand Duke himself.

This will be an annual quest. It is decided.


Ah; perhaps it were so, but one who wishes not to create of the same quest anew may do so with some differences.


This year, as with the last, I encourage all to create of tasteful memery. These should be relevant in some method to the realm of MagicDuel, which may also include of events within the realm, and if the event or allusion were subtle, an explanation should accompany - unless the meme doth explain it.

As in previous years, the scoring system for each post shall go as follows:

Each "Like" or "Upvote" upon the post shall score a single point for the post in question, with no subtraction of points for "Downvotes".

I would, as in the previous year, appreciate, for scoring purposes, a single meme in each post (other than to quote previous memery).

One entry per post?

What, then, were different this year? Very well; here were the schemery...

One may steal points from another by posting a reply to any meme already posted, at risk of losing points. This shall function as follows:

If one should post a single meme in reply to another single meme (quoting the original in question), and the reply-meme receives more likes and upvotes than the original, then the reply meme's total point value shall be increased by 1, and the original's shall be decreased by 1.
However, if the reply should receive fewer likes and upvotes, then the reply meme's total point value shall be decreased by 1, and the original's increased by 1. Of course, the reply must be related to the original in some way, including in referral to the person who created the meme (e.g. person 1 uses person 2 in a meme - much like Chewett did use Ledah in the above meme; person 2 can reply using person 1 in the reply-meme).

An additional rule: One cannot reply to any specific meme more than once (although a sequential chain is possible, and encouraged.)

Multiple replies to the same post will each incur their own bonuses and penalties - for example, if a post should have three replies, and two of them receive greater numbers of votes while one receives fewer, then the total adjustment to the final point score of the post shall be -2 +1 = -1.

Rewards for this quest shall be as follows:

1 coloured elemental
1 coloured winderwild
1 coloured pope
1 16th anniversary creature

1st choice: The highest point score, including adjustments from the schemery in a post containing a single original (non-reply) meme
2nd choice: The highest point score, including adjustments from the schemery in a post containing a single reply meme
3rd choice: The most untouchable original meme as determined by votes - that is, the greatest difference between unmodified scores between an original and reply, where the reply scores lower
4th choice: The most savage reply as determined by votes - that is, the greatest difference between unmodified scores between an original and reply, where the reply scores higher

Additionally, participation rewards (likely plushies) for all will be dependent on total contribution and calculated at the close.

Exceptional entries may also receive a stat bonus or alteration, potentially related to the content of the entries in question.

Entries will close at the end of the Anniversary, but are open from the time of this posting, even though the Anniversary has not officially commenced.
