: Holiday Contest
: MythMaster December 25, 2013, 01:38:25 PM
I bought extra sets of Myth specifically to have prize support, so we could run contests over time.  I want to get our first contest running, even though we don't have the game in our hands yet.    In order to deliver prizes as soon as we can, we are limiting to elements in the base set at this point.

So for our first contest, I want to do a simple "caption this photo".  I was hoping to be able to take holiday Myth photos, but I've gone to plan B, and grabbed a recent MERCS shot from the game. 

1) 1 caption per person, which must be posted in this tread.
2) All captions must be posted by January 15.
3) A survey will go up for people to vote for winners, running for 2 weeks.
4) The caption receiving the most votes will be the winner.
5) The winner will receiver 4 orcs, and 1 orc captain. 
6) Prizes will be shipped after Myth has been received, and will be shipped at Lands of Myth's expense.

Here is the Photo to caption:

Have fun everyone.

As the Terror With A Thousand Legs looked over her measly Christmas dinner, she began to reflect on her life. All of her children had grown up and started lairs of their own. They rarely came home for the holidays. As her family had spread, so to had the adventurers spread, losing interest in her quest line in favour of newer content and greater reward.

The Terror was tired. She had been in the monster game longer than any of the others and she was beginning to feel it. Perhaps Yardu was right. Perhaps she should retire and get back to her true passion - knitting. Perhaps she could finally get around to finishing the Deepweb. She chewed thoughtfully on the leg.

Oh, now look what I did. I stained the rug! That'll teach me to chew with my mandibles open.

When presenting an Apprentice , does it need a gift bag?

Waiter I ordered Acolyte Bisque not Roasted Apprentice. I know you don't expect me to pay for this. This place is only getting half of a star on yelp when I get home.

Upon a sober awakening, the apprentice realized that the long legged beauty he had thought was eyeing him with insatiable desire across the tavern, really WAS.

We are almost to Jan 15.  (I hope that the polling program will take all of these.)

If it doesn't you could number each of the entries, and divide them into multiple boards.

The poll is now up. 

Everyone can vote for 3 (so that you can vote for your own and 2 others instead of everyone just voting for themselves).  The poll will run exactly 2 weeks.  Results are hidden until the end.

A few of the quotes were too big and I had to add a ... to the end.  You can see the original quote in the thread for these cases if you wish to see the full quote (or even story in some cases).  Formatting also doesn't carry over into the poll.

Anyway, good luck to all who submitted.

Oh, that one's a classic!

Did you vote for that one too? :)

Of course I did!  I'm a sucker for typos.  Is it 2015 yet?

a tie?

Nice!  I tied for second!  Didn't expect that, honestly.

So do you want the legs or the arms of the Orc Captain?  or do we split him vertically instead?  :P
: Re: Holiday Contest
: Artisan January 31, 2014, 01:10:16 PM
I didn't think 2nd place got anything.  The two 1st place winners will have to split.  I'm not in the running for prizes, but still, thanks for the votes, y'all!

I guess I should have looked at who submitted what.  :(

Argh, missed out on voting! I think I would have voted for the winner though. Congrats everyone. :)

With Myth shipping this week, I should be hopefully getting prizes shipped soon after.
: Re: Holiday Contest
: MythMaster April 13, 2014, 09:12:32 AM
First, I want to apologize for not shipping prizes yet.  I haven't forgotten, I assure you.  I'm simply waiting on the rest of my myth boxes to arrive.  I planned to crack open one to grab the minis out of it.  With 4 boxes either not shipped or lost in transit, my prize pool hasn't arrived yet for the site.  I thought this would be resolved weeks ago, but no luck so far.
