@PGJared @Arelyna
Seeing as the topic is closed, I’d just like to say that I think it is a novel idea, and kind of nice from PG.

The short window caught me off-guard, and I was working on a post on a guide on how MVP in wars work since I haven’t seen one yet.

Its basically done but I missed the deadline, not like you would have sent the Mug to South Africa anyways :slight_smile:

Anyways, would just like to say thank you for the initiative, and please don’t abandon the concept just because the uptake was low. Maybe give a bit more time in the future.

Cheers

Oh dear. I was trying to figure out how to make a Google doc :joy::joy::joy: Gotta give us old guys time. :blush:


#3

I’d have sent a mug to South Africa, just FYI.


#4

Will there be another contest like this?! I was in the same position as Gox. I got caught up this weekend and only got about a page of text for an introduction. If there will be more contests could you please anounce them earlier?
@PGJared


#5

If we run another contest we will absolutely give it more time. This one was more of an off-the cuff thing that I wanted to get out and try so we could send some folks some loot.


#6

I want some loot!!! Especially that mug!:sushing_face::sob:


#7

WORD!

In my day we played with panted figurines and DICE!

And Roddy McDowel was Frodo!


#8

Some of us still do that. Also, McDowall was Sam. Orson Bean was Frodo.

(I have some of the songs from that saved on my computer.)


#9

Too funny!!!

My first year in College I lived across the hall from the Dorm Manager. Not good for partying, but for D&D he was a great DM!

I mean the man owned an original paper bound copy of the bonifide rules of D&D. Old School rep +1.

Anyways… Topic? Ok, sorry.
Forum competitions, definitely interested! Has the topic of competitively crowd-sourcing contributions toward Lore been brought up?


#10

Not yet! The lore in War Dragons is something that we feel has a lot of potential, but has not been fully explored yet. We’ve dabbled in it a little bit so far with the story behind Abraxxas and Kharnyx, but we envision it to me much more fleshed out than that sometime in the future.


#11

Nice! We still play old school with dice. My sister is an awesome DM. It helps that she is a writer and has done a lot of work for Wizards of the Coast. I was so proud when her Eberron books were published. :blush: She has a talent for the written word.


#12

What’s her name? I’m always interested in discovering new fantasy writers (new to me anyway!)


#13

Don’t hold your breath Gox :roll_eyes: I’m still waiting for my WD T-shirt to arrive :joy::joy:


#14

Haha my statue of kinnara rocked up about two weeks ago… There is hope :face_with_hand_over_mouth:


#15

Thanks @Gox1201! I am glad to see that there is interest in doing more contests like this!

@PGJared is right that this was an off-the-cuff thing that he and I wanted to try. We are still looking at probably doing some more of these with longer open windows.

And yes, swag would’ve made it to other countries as well. :slight_smile:
