[AVATARS] There's a catch...
Nordenx Avatar Adventure!



Avast, forumlubbers! Ahoy!

If ye want me to make ye an avatar, ye 'ave to catch me first!

  • Find me in any of the doubloon oceans.
  • Challenge me to a duel (drinking, swordfight, rumble or boxing) be it rated or not, depending on yer liking.
  • Beat me and yer avatar price be 25K POE or 25 doubloons!
  • If I win, ye pay the full price of 30K POE or 30 doubloons!
  • Hearty me, Matey!
  • Ye have to pay me on the spot.
  • Then ye must come here and post the snippet from your chat log of our deal plus the detail of what ye want in yer custom avatar and provide yer pirate portrait for reference.
  • Allow me a few days to finish yer avatar, I will post the finished piece in this thread.
  • I am sorry, I am not taking commissions from PM anymore. A lot of them get buried and forgotten with nary an X to mark the spot. I will only accept your order if ye played & paid me in the game. I hope ye understand, this is the only way I can have some semblance of control on how heavy or light my work load would be. If I want more work, I'll be online more. If I want less work, I'll go in hiding.

For example of me work, check here:

LOL! Yes I am. :P

To give you a hint on where I might be:

* I play about 2 hours during the day any time between 10AM to 2PM (PST).
* I play about 2 to 3 hours at night any time between 7PM to 2AM (PST).
* I'm even in Midnight and Cobalt & Ice. But, sadly I am not a subscriber; ergo my services are available to doubloon oceans only.
* I spend 19% of my play time in Ice: http://ice.puzzlepirates.com/yoweb/pirate.wm?target=Nordenx

The math is simple. The probabilities of ye catching me may be low, but if yer a good hunter ye may get lucky. HAR! :D

Re: [AVATARS] There's a catch...
Sorry, Ilya & Nasrin me mateys... doublooners only. I love ye subscribers but I have to make a different deal with ye later.

Cambiata me dearie, I be ever so sorry ye missed me. I was only passing by DN. Maybe ye'll catch me next time. ;)

Another tip: I check my Ironmonger Stall in TL almost every day or so. I am there for quite a bit managing orders, commod trades, pricing, labor, bids, and blacksmithing what have ye. Tis place be yer best bet.

Rhodin, Lass! Ye be correct! :D I had ye in mind when I made that tan blonde one-eyed pirate in gray.

Ah, but there's more, lass.

Here's another catch:

If you defeat me (which is really quite easy since I am just an average puzzler), ye can challenge me again for a second time. This time it's go for broke - If I accept because ye charmed me with beautiful words such as a challenge in form of a free style piratey prose or poem (not begging) and ye beat me again in SF/Rumble/Drinking, I will lower my price down further to 20K or 20 doubs. But If I beat ye this time around, ye have to pay me the original price in full - 30K or 30 Doubs.

Remember to post the chat log of the encounter here, if not - by default, ye have to agree and permit me to post it as they shall be my record of our transaction. ;)

One got the better of me, but one pirate I fell
One challenged my sword and one hand to hand.

One lowered her price, the other ten thousand times three.

Avast! Ahoy Nordenx, here be my order, I look forward to the avatar.

I would like an avatar of me as shown in this portrait , but with these boots and this on one of my hands! I was thinking of maybe me in a Villa (painted maroon), leaning back on a chair with my feet up on a table, relaxing (with some furniture in the background).

Thank ye!

Re: [AVATARS] There's a catch...
 
I have been meaning to ask, but what sparked this idea?
This way I have somewhat of a control on how many commissions I get in a month. If I just have a store that is open for orders, I usually would get swamped or PMed to death. With the quality and rarity of the avatars I offer, I figure that it should justify the price. This also gives my patrons a chance to lower their fees and have fun at the process. ^_^

 
I GOT YOU! HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH!
Yar! That ye did!
 
[20:19:50] Mynameisilya says, "Finally! I found you!"
[20:19:58] Nordenx says, "Then draw yer sword!"
[20:20:01] Mynameisilya says, "I don't have one..."
[20:20:13] Nordenx says, "Yar! ye can try and Stick me to death?"
[20:20:28] Mynameisilya frowns
[20:20:58] Nordenx says, "Ye never know. I've been beaten by sticks plenty of times before."
[20:23:04] Nordenx lost!
[20:23:04] Game over. Winner: Mynameisilya.
[20:23:07] Mynameisilya says, "yay"
[20:23:07] Nordenx says, "Yar!"
[20:23:14] Nordenx says, "Beaten by a stick!"
[20:23:30] You have received a puzzle challenge from Mynameisilya.
[20:23:57] Nordenx says, "Once more, eh? Yar!"
[20:23:58] Mynameisilya says, "Good luck! It's either I win and pay 20 doubs or fail... "
[20:24:49] **** says, "Aha!"
[20:24:57] **** says, "Hiding in the trees! Sneeky!"
[20:25:06] **** is watching the game.
[20:25:47] Nordenx says, "En Garde!"
[20:26:07] Mynameisilya lost!
[20:26:07] Game over. Winner: Nordenx.
[20:26:08] Mynameisilya says, "NO!!!"
[20:26:12] Nordenx says, "Yar!"
[20:26:25] Success: 30 doubloons sent to Nordenx.
There are two commissions ahead of ye mate. One almost done and one halfway through. I'm hoping to finish everything before the end of the month.
