Obsidian Shoppe Naming Contest [Winners Announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote




Winners Announced!

What are we doing? Celebrating the upcoming Full Release of Dark Seas
How do we play? Sun's out, puns out! We're looking for PERFECTLY PUNNY names for the faction islands: Night Harbour and Lionhaven. The punnier, the better! We're not necessarily looking for themed names, however we will prefer names that represent the theme of the faction island.
Why do we do this? We've been racking our brains trying to come up with puntastic names for the OM controlled islands on Obsidian to celebrate the impending full launch of Dark Seas, but now we're turning to you for help!
When do I have to do this? The Deadline is 11:59:59pm, July 16, 2018

The prizes may include
  • A Punny Vessel!
  • A Punny Pet!
  • Shoppe furniture!
  • Trinkets!
We're keeping prizes flexible, depending on the quantity and quality of entries. Water you waitin' for? Seas the day!


More Information:
  • All entries should meet our Building Naming Policy
  • You may only have one entry post, but you can edit up until the deadline. Use the complete list, even if you leave some shoppe names blank. You can copy and paste the island list you'll be entering using the example I'll post below. If the entry would fit for multiple shop types, you can enter it on multiple shop types. Only one name per shop type per island though!

  • Entries should include:
    • Your pirate's name
    • Your ocean
    • Your favorite in-game color, excluding special colors
    • The full list of shops on the island, even if you do not submit a name for each.
  • Both winning and non-winning entries might be used, or used as inspiration, to rename shops on the OM owned islands. There is no guarantee that we will use any of these names, regardless of prizes awarded. If your name is used and unique (as of the posting of this event), you will be given credit in the building news.

***This is an example post. DO NOT USE MY ENTRIES AS SUGGESTIONS FOR THEMES RELATED TO THESE ISLANDS. They aren't. At all really. They're suppose to be bad examples so you'll use your own creativity but still get an idea of what we'd like to see in the post's layout. I can't help it I'm so good at coming up with awesome names. Try to make your entries fit the island/faction's theme!***

Small update: I'm running behind with the prizes this week but will try to get them out on Sunday. Sorry for the delay! It's been a very tearful back to school week and the extra time I had planned to use disappeared. Thanks so much for being patient!

I've had a break from YPP and it's awesome to come back to some pun appreciation :D I'm glad you liked some of my names, and I loved a lot of the other entries too (and the competition itself).

Sorry for keeping you waiting on the prizes! I would assume that you're usually online U.S. times Nemesis? I'll figure out some point for my upside down Australian self to be online at the same time :P
