    Default ! Building contest !

    Hey all,

    I am happy to announce that the building contest I had in mind will be open as off now.
    If things arent clear plz ask.

    Theme : ANCIENT ROME / GREECE

    tips: Gladiator fights, warships, horse charriots race, the legions, ceasar and Cleopatra, Mount Olympus and Zeus, Parthenon, Oracle of Delphi etc

    Mythology is allowed but even though I have read a fair bit I would like to know what story you used so plz add that to your entry email

    I will also accept things from comics like Asterix and Obelix but focus on the roman part


    Rules:
    There will be 2 caterogies: Architecture and NON architecture

    for each category a winner will be chosen. The price will depend on the amount of entries.
    > 10 entries: winner 1 Rex
    > 20 entries: winner 2 Rex
    > 30 entries: winner 3 Rex, second 1 Rex
    > 40 entries: winner 4 Rex, second 2 Rex
    > 50 entries: winner 5 Rex, second 2 Rex, third 1 Rex

    I will allow entrance to both categories

    * New builds only
    * No cooperations (there is no way I can check that so be fair)
    * Dim will be closed till opening day March 31st (reason, I dim/shard hop a lot)
    * Overall impression is important however If you want to use only part of the dim, make sure it is clear where we are to go or close it off.
    * no guild dims but any other is fine
    * no item limit
    * no material restrictions though I am aware that not everyone (including me) has access to all available items.
    * all contestants submit their entry by email : romerift@xs4all.nl Entries close March 30th.
    In you email you should have: dim name, owner, shard, category, a photobucket link or similar and a short description. Especially if using mythology. I would like to read up before judging.
    * all dims should be made public March 31st and make sure you have +1


    Timeframe

    I will make a list of all entries asap after closing date March 30th and post it here.
    Me and my fellow jurymembers will start hopping then. Bear in mind I do not have tons of time so it may take a bit to view all.
    We will try to make a top 10 asap and announce that here. I estimate April 15th.
    After that we will chose the top 3 within a week.

    I know there will be questions on how we will judge. Well it is always a matter of taste ofc, but we will try to be a fair as possible. I know we wil be comparing apples and oranges at some point no doubt but we will do our best.


    I hope I have covered all. Good luck everyone!

    Super exciting!

    I love the idea that all the entries are private and people can keep their ideas to themselves, but I HATE having to wait two months to see them!

    Shalistiri Mirage : The Light in the Dark : Camp Catari : Dwarven Ladies Club: RP - The Basilicini of Bahralt : Lycini Townhouse : Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater : The Paarrrrsing Deck : Fuji Dojo : Cherry Breeze Estate on Faeblight

    I am starting to build something. By new build does that mean it has to be in a dimension you never built in before as well? The dimension I want to use had something else in it that has since been cleared but it got a few one ups before i tore it down for items. Do I have to use a different one?

    Awesome! First Question:

    Can the Theme be a Book? An example without giving anything away would be Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief. It involves Greek Mythology with a twist of reality. Is this exceptable?

    Super excited! Cant wait for it....sure wish Dreamweaving was running live so I have the Anything Dim, lol!

    I dont know the book, but I would say no.
    Tales like, Icarus, minotaur of Minos, the Odessy, Hercules etc I will accept since the entire story is within the roman/greek timeframe.
    Sorry

    Could you please clarify the line: "I will allow entrance to both categories" ?

    Does this mean a dimension that covers both categories or the option to enter with 2 seperate dimensions, or both?
