Storylines Contest Results!

Recommended Posts

Here are the final results for each entry in the Short Story and Poetry contest. For the judges decision, I added them up and then multiplied by 5/6 to get 50%. For the players decision, I just divided the percentage in the poll by 2 to get the other 50%. The entries are ranked according to score, and then alphabetically. For more detailed comments on your entries, and how to improve them, please refer to the Storylines Contest - Judges thread.

Excellent listing, but 6 EFE's? thats enough to build nearly 2 sets of Platemail. I suggest lowering to 2-3 Same thing with Ros stones, 5? wow, those are worth nearly 12-15k on the market these days, your basically making the thrid player one of the richest :P The magic sword is more rare than a Platemail set, you might want to move it up. But Im curious what others think.

Ok, thanks guys! As i don't really have time to play anymore :P i'm not up on current market prices. I will definately tinker with the listing then and will post the prizes tomorrow. I want to make it a little fairer and try to get a better spread with the goods.

Monkeyki; I have to redo the list anyway due to it not quite being an even spread. I will honor your request to not have any weapons as a prize as best i can. I'll try to get an equitable prize that will suit yours and everyone elses needs.

erm... shouldnt the magic sword be first prize? its probably worth more, but i guess it depends on the sword... and ros stones shouldnt be third place, they are worth more than anything else if you get 5 :P

If more prizes are wanted(by judges, and players asking for stuff will get ignored :P ) I can offer some

chain (a fair bit of steel and a few tit)

rings of damage

tit shorts

diss rings

and a rostogol

 

alternatively, I may go through all entries and award some prizes based on which ones I liked best

 

or both options

 

will there be a ceremony in WSC meeting hall or something, to award prizes? or will it be just a matter of when a winner is seen, they get given the stuff? (I'm hoping for the former)

if so, when will this be?

Ok the prizes have been updated! I hope this suits everyone's needs!

 

As far as giving prizes...the only problem i have is that i can't carry it all. There's just too much to risk hauling it all there and placing in bags. So, we will have to meet on an individual basis to hand prizes out. Sorry :P. I will be asking mods today to announce the top 3 winners for each contests for the whole of EL to hear.
