101 Hera Eggs! (or 101 uses for a Hera Egg...)[Winners Announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Looking for winners? Go here

I've had a lot of fun lately giving out Hera Eggs via in game competitions with punny titles. So much fun, that there are now an overwhelming number of my pretty purple eggs cluttering up inventories, houses, shoppes, stalls and ships. I'm seeing my eggs everywhere I go, so I think it is time to put them to good use.

You may not have 101 Hera Eggs (wait, why not?! They are so collectible!), but I'm sure you could show me a use for a Hera Egg! The best suggestion will win a cute purple Octopus, along with a Hera Doll trinket. Other prizes will include Hera Doll trinkets and (you guessed it!) Hera Eggs.


Create a picture showing me a use for one (or more) Hera Eggs


What to do:
  • Create a picture by drawing an image. You may add text to your picture to explain how the eggs are being used if it isn't clear.
  • Host your images online at a site like http://imageshack.us/ or http://photobucket.com
  • Post a completed image of your creation (maximum size 600 x 600) in the entry thread here
  • If you cannot post an image, please post a link to your image
  • Be sure to include your pirate name and ocean in your entry thread or put it in your signature.
  • The deadline for entries is 11:59PM game time on May 20th. Entries posted or edited after that time will be disqualified.

Other Important Stuff that you need to read before starting your project!:
[1] This is a competition based on drawing an image and adding humorous text (if necessary). An image drawn in a program such as Photoshop® is acceptable, as are hand drawn entries. I'm after original work, so no using existing in game art please.
[2] No photographic images please! This is an art contest specifically aimed at drawing.
[3] Images should all be clean! As should the text! General forum rules to decency apply!
[4] One entry only per player. (One suggested use of Hera Egg(s))
[5] This competition is open to all oceans. Winners will be announced in this thread and prizes placed into inventories. The number of prizes may vary according to the number of entries.
[6] Humour is key here! Stick figure drawings with a suggestion that makes me fall off my seat laughing is just as likely to win as a glorious piece of art that makes me smile. So don't let lack of drawing ability stop you from entering if you have a brilliant idea!

If there is one OM whom I believe that, it's you.

Why not making a second category for a 101 item list ;)

Must the image be a single picture? Or can it be a little comic turned into 600x600?

It can be in comic strip form if that makes it easier to demonstrate the use of an egg. Keep it simple though! I'd expect that people would be able to convey the use within a maximum of four panels. No graphic novels!

I think you should be ok hosting your picture where you like, as long as you don't have to sign up to see your picture. I use tinypic, which has been fine for all the Easter Doodles.

I thought about doing a Hera snooker thing at first cause the championship was on when this event was started. Great that someone had a similar idea.
