May the fourth be with you 2015 edition [WINNERS!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

May the 4th be with for a few minutes at least.


Your Task:

With Star Wars Day almost and the NFL draft gone, I want you to draft a Star Wars crew member similar to
http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000490966/star-wars-draft-day

You are not limited to those but are limited to 1 character. Write a few lines (limit 150 words, but length doesn't equal quality ).
Why you choose that character for your ypp crew.

Prizes

Clotho will provide prizes, so there will be trinkets and other stuff, but the dark side clouds the vision of the future for now.

Deadline will be on Saturday May 16th (May the 4th squared) at 11.59 pm pirate time (PST)

I'm so sorry but I was held up with posting this, so it got posted a few minutes after the last second may 4th on this planet.

Just post your entries as a reply to this thread and include your pirate name and ocean at the beginning of yor post.

The 1st Overall Puzzle Pirates Crew Draft will be Anakin Skywalker for the crew Good Game!

Anakin is a perfect fit for my crew:

Having practiced since he was a child he is now the greatest bnaver in the galaxy.


He has mastered the art of sword fighting.


Kraken runs? More like Krak and done.
Anakin could just reel in all the kraken eggs with the force while we all chill on the boat.


Want a robot army? Anakin has been making robots since he was a child, including C3PO a robot that knows all languages. More minions to rule the ocean.


A boat? Forget boats, we shall fly. Anakin has been making podracers since he was a child too.


and he can turn evil and destroy all who oppose us. Muhahaha!


With Anakin, the seas, nay the galaxy shall belong to Good Game.
May the Force be with ye.

Ohhh I'm tired and dizzy but I'm gonna come up with an entry. Wish me luck!
Bisca of Emerald ocean.

My pick would be Chewbacca!

For one thing, he's badass.
He's always there when you need him, good with harpoons better with the guns :D
That makes him perfect for either krakens, SMH's, pillages. Just throw him at the goons and he'll get rid of them!
Further he doesn't talk much so that gives some nice and quiet time. You can blabber at him and he'll just give a little roar..
He's always by your side once you've earned his trust. Further he's kind of aggressive (which is cool) but when you get closer... He's really sweet!
So he could also be my personal little teddybear :) Fluffy and adorable.

(Yes this is an ugly chewbacca costume but the hug-thing is the point)
Hug Chewbacca all the bloody time!

To come to the point: Just Because I Can.

Lillobby of Emerald Ocean

I choose Han Solo.
Why?

He is a smuggler. Who wouldn't want one of them in your crew. He could smuggle you away on a ship and help you steal hundreds of brigand king trinkets so you could finally get a horrendous collection of hundreds of dolls.

And he could help you with his Millennium Falcon which could destroy any sea monster with great ease. (Maybe finally getting you a octopus familiar as the loot would be easy to grab while there was nothing in the way.)

He could shoot a harpoon too as harpoons are very similar to hand fired weapons. This could help you down even more krakens (But with the Falcon why would you need this.)

Again the Falcon would provide a great ship for your team to relax on while you were not fighting brigands and barbarians. You could even play holo-chess!

I will draft: The Imperial Senate!

This giant building features impressive, gigantic throwing-disc-chambers for people to speak from, and guarantees that everyone can be seen, heard, and speak.

Work is still in progress on being understood, and with all that talking, nothing actually happens.

Image can be found here: http://darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0617.html
(Hot-linking is bad form, have the whole page)

(Let me know if I need to grab an better image)

I'd be dockpressing Wicket, the Ewok!
Ewoks have great experience with handling rigging, as their communities live in trees strung up with rope. Wicket himself is a formidable combatant with a stick, and has a way with the ladies. He is also fluffy like a bunny (perfect for the Burple Punnies)!

We finally have winners. June the second be the day then... I agree too long, but all the entries have been close together.

So there'll be three people finding a Lightsaber, oh sorry, a light Saber in their inventory in their inventory. They'll be in classic Jedi colours (blue and green).
And as I can't hand out Super Bowl Rings, you might find a signet ring in your inventory.

Oh, the droids I was looking for are:

Bisca of Emerald
Minsiem of Cerulean
Parura of Cerulean

Congratulations to the winners.

But I must ask. Have I been blacklisted from these events or is there a certain favoritism in place?
I held back this thought/suspicion for a while because I don't want to get in trouble but I keep seeing this happening. I don't want to get banned for saying this. I think it is fair if I voice my opinion and that it is unfair that submissions I send keep getting rejected unfairly. Objectively it was definitely top 3 worthy, I recognize the nature of these events is just for fun/light hearted but in this case I wanted to address this as these fun events should be fair without favoritism and unfair bias.

Please do not take offense to this comment,
Just wanted to address my concern.

As a frequent event participant, regular event helper, and sometime event host, I can attest that the answer to your favoritism question is no. Forum competitions are far too much trouble to go to, just to give your friends a present. Perhaps this post: http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=87466 will show you some of what it takes to run an event.

Yay! Thanks :)

This is the second global event in my 9 years as pirate and I hadn't interact with Locu until now so I don't think you can talk about favoritism here.

I've hosted events on Jade and now I do it on Cerulean on a monthly base and can tell you that judging creative events is hard so thank you Locu for a nice and fun event, and thanks Clotho for supporting it as she usually do.

Definitely not. I had similar thoughts a long time ago. There's no ill will towards any of the participants (or non-participants). Just participate in future events and have fun with it. You'll win some day, but you won't if you stop participating.
This time it was really really close and only one step away from randomly drawing winners, which also accounts for the 3 equal winners instead of ranked winners.

We tried to take it with us to pillaging but the weight was just too much, so we sank before we reached the first league point.

Also it was hard to deliver the trinket to that weird forum ocean ;)
