[Idea] Design your own trinket event Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I know that this idea doesn't strictly pertain to the "Game Design" ethic, but it's close enough, as it effects the game somewhat. It's probably more appropriate than shooting a PM to Artemis or Nemo.

I'd like to see a forum event where people would be invited to draw their own 37x37 (or whatever the figure is) design for a trinket. Each month, there is a theme (for example: St. Valentine's for a January contest, Summer in June, etc.) and the best 2 or 3 trinkets get put into the game for a month, as per the portrait contest. Winners would get the trinket with a personal comment from Nemo, and an additional 5 to give out to whom they wish, with free engraving by the OMs.

Thoughts?

Unless trinkets got a lot more common, this person could get very rich.

good idea

Well, if you don't want someone to get rich from it then this simply means that we'll have to get someone like me to win - someone who would give them to friends and loved ones :) lmao

People will pay whatever they're willing to pay. I think they'd add to the social puzzle; if anyone wanted to sell them off for their personal gain, so be it. You can't slap a maximum price on familiars, so what's to stop Drusilla or Silverdawg or Tristan from selling one for 10 million?

The fact that nobody would pay 10 million?

Although I wouldn't put it past sombody to dump massive clumps of RL cash on dubloons, simultaneously booching the market (Dubloons on sale for 200 poe each) and buying themselves a familiar.

I'll never understand you looner kiddies.

I hope someone takes his advice, then I can buy enough dubs to last me a while. All those badges and WFs are kind of tapping me out.

I like the idea very much. Also, I don't think the selling of new trinkets would be an issue at all. As we've seen by the recent inflation of Fruitcakes, seasonal trinkets can be quite numerous and nearly worthless in terms of poe.

It would be a waste for the art to be added to the game (the image would have to be added to the media, then downloaded in a patch), then only have 5 people get the trinket.

The reward should be that the trinket being added to the game and is now being passed out to other players in events and tourneys. That others are getting your artwork as a prize is prize in of itself.

I'd have thought a new limited-edition trinket every month would really knock the market. Trinkets aren't too common anyway so they already cost alot. If a new one was added for one month only we'd have items more as valuable as artifacts circulating. If it was say a once a year contest like the Designing Easter Eggs, it would be welcomed more- a bit like the Antideluvian Conch (or whatever it was).

This would be fun if they took the time to allow all trinkets to be held in portraits. I spent 3 years on this game and won my first doll only to find out that while I can hold my cheap fruit cake and all of my eggs I can't hold my doll.

Mind the 2.5 year bump. It's still a fun idea, though.

/e isn't speaking as an artist, not at all... this is not the contest you're looking for, move along...

First of all, you bumped a 6+ month old thread. make sure to note that when doing so.

Secondly, this was a discussion about having such an event, not that one was started. Read thoroughly young grasshopper...
