Signing up! Awesome challenge idea, Goss.

Jomi and I will be collaborating on a thread centring on Lhavit and its unique take on education and magic. There’s recently been a huge shift of opinion in the city about it, so we’ll be highlighting the rift its causing, as well as just revelling in the city’s flavour.

Signing up!

I'm looking forward to my collaboration with Madeira. :D

Were focusing on the practice of magic in Lhavit and the institutions that regulate it. But I'm also going to try to take extra care to write about the beauty of the city since thats something I've been neglecting to do in my own writing

First Impressions

There is a unique prejudice within Sunberth that no other city possesses. While some of us have alluded to the dire consequences of being mages in the city, very few have actually witnessed it. In this flashback, Kynier learns the reason why the hatred exists.

Just a quick reminder....

The contest ends tonight at 9pm PST. Your entry needs to be a thread that showcases your city. I don't care if you collaborate with someone on this, but I'm not accepting a series of replies that are 'atmosphere' heavy. It needs to be a thread written to showcase the city ... moods, feelings, actions, etc. I saw a brief blurb in chat that sounded like people might just be counting owed thread replies to a word count total to go towards this contest if they pile on the city theme heavy and that's not the case! Again, that's not the point. The point is conveying the city/atmosphere/actions there in. Got it? Great!

Good luck!

Hoping I can sneak this one under the wire. I'm setting my thread at the proverbial gates of Ravok, with the intent of showcasing what life is like where the ideals and ways of the city clash against the outside world. Emphasis on the kind of people that are desperate to get into a place like Ravok, as well as those who are desperate to get out, not to mention all the opportunities such desperation entails.

Hi Folks!

I've had what I promise you has been one of the most craziest weeks on record. I've talked a bit about it in chat and its cut into my Miz time considerably. However, I'm finally able to really dig in and award these prizes.

First and foremost, thanks everyone for playing. I want to remind you that NEXT time please follow the instructions. I don't want your contests to be a series of posts all over your chosen city but in concise singular threads. I don't mind if you pair up, but you can't flavor your already owed responses and still qualify in contests and challenges like this.

That being said... for the prizes, we are playing a bit of a blind game.

Since this was a "Showcase Your City" contest. Each of you who qualified will win a City Showcase! Each city has a basic showcase prize package. I am not going to reveal what is going to be in the city showcase prize packages yet. Just trust me.. they are lovely. Now... each city will have THREE tiers of Showcases.

  • Copper Showcase : Basic Package Everyone Wins
  • Silver Showcase: An Upgraded Package from Copper You Can Qualify For or Purchase
  • Gold Showcase: An Upgraded Package from Silver You Can Purchase

Each person who participated and completed the challenge automatically wins a Copper Showcase which is city themed based on the city you Showcased.

You can Upgrade two ways. First, if you doubled your word count (Vasin, Caspian) then you can automatically pick the upgrade to the Silver Showcase.

If you didn't post a double the word count, you can buy an upgrade for $500 GM. If you want an additional upgrade, it costs another $500 GM. Thus someone who won a Silver Showcase could buy a Gold Showcase for $500. Someone who earned a Copper Showcase can buy up to a Gold Showcase for $1000 gold. The prizes in the upgraded City Showcases will have items in them worth more than the purchase value.

There is a second way to upgrade to a better showcase. You can turn in one magic item that I deem is equal to $500 GM and buy up. Once you turn in a magic item, you cannot use it ever again and must loose or destroy it in IC.

The City Showcases potentially will have magic items in them with higher more powerful magic items at higher tier levels. You cannot take a showcase from a different city than the one you play in and showcased.

Please let me know below what showcase you want and if you are buying up tiers and if you are using gold or magic items to do so. Remember, I must approve the magic items turn-in's to let them count. Also, you CANNOT turn in magic additions/effects added on items to purchase upgrades It's the whole item or nothing. :)

I'll reveal the City Showcases tomorrow after you have made your selections.
