Event: The Great Escape! Win a Hera Doll Trinket! (Winners Announced) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Winners here!


The Great Escape! (or how Ippolito Familiars finally arrived on Obsidian!) An art event!

Ippolito familiars have finally been spotted on Obsidian Ocean! Just how did those critters finally evade the Oceanmasters and find their freedom? I want to know so I can prevent future escapes! Its up to YOU to show me their escape plan! This is primarily an art event; how you illustrate it is up to you. It could be a map with notations of escape steps, it could be a picture showing objectives needed in order for them to gain freedom, it could be a one page cartoon panel showing the different stages of the escape. We are only after one image; after all Ippolito familars are small things and wouldn't be able to hide a bigger multi-page plan!

What to do!
- Create an escape plan that the Ippolito familiars may have used.
- Your plan can contain both illustrations and text
- Your plan should have a YPP theme


Please include the following in your post :
- Your pirate's name and ocean (open to all oceans)
- Post the original plan in this thread as shown here. Please keep it to a maximum size of 600 x 600 pixels. (you can link to a larger image as well if detail is lost)



The Prizes

Prizes will be flexible, depending on the quantity and quality of entries, but you can expect to see

* Hera Doll trinket
* Renamed Sloop
* Clothes, trinkets, furniture
* Hera Eggs (Because everyone loves those!)
* Shiny Sun Points!


Other rules/information
-Only one entry per player
-Original art work please - while I'm after elements in the game being used, I do want you to draw them and not photoshop existing artwork into your work.
-Contest will finish 26 August 11.59pm game time
- You may edit your post up until the deadline.
- I'm sure it goes without saying, but lets please keep the entries PG13!

Sent by Steinbock from Obsidian Ocean



The Oceanmasters were prisoning innocent Ippolitas under the seas! The plan of Seahorses was to somehow break the golden lock of the improsining cage. One day a curious Crab came along and saw the shiny lock. The lock was so luminous that the Crab became both frightened and rejoiced, because it has finally found itself a wonderful trinket! So Ippolitas told the credulous Crab to break the lock with its claw.

In the end, Ippolitas obtained their freedom by the help of a Crab. The joyful Seahorses carried the pieces of broken lock for their delighted friend. After these tiny critters arrived to a safe place, both Ippolitas and Crab were happy. Now the Ippolitas are enjoying the life of freedom.

Cattrin on Obsidian



Ippolito are well-known for their mastery of mimicry- who knew they could use their skills to deceive even the Ocean Masters? Steam is a newfangled thing, popping up in the strangest places on the ocean...

if I lived on the west coast instead of east, THIS would be a last minute entry



link to note (judging note - this IS copy and paste. ippos are small but very technologically advanced and Hera wouldn't be tricked by anything I drew):
https://i.imgur.com/ISyWnvN.png

OUTCOME: NOT REALIZING HER PART IN THE BOLD BREAKOUT, HERA IS INFURIATED. COMING SOON, PART 2.

PART 2 SYNOPSIS: The pacifist white ippos try to comfort Hera by telling her a story (any resemblance to It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is purely coincidental.)
Doggbreath, a pirate on Cerulean, believes that the Great Hera will visit all Hera egg displays on her birthday looking for the one that is owned by an obvious apple polisher. Since she has no idea when that day is, Doggbreath sleeps next to the eggs on the top floor of Roguesriding's Gallery, awaiting the visit. Hera visits the gallery and is so impressed that she gift wraps and oblivious white ippo and slips it into Doggbreath's booty while she is asleep and waits to see how long it will be before she notices it.
----------------------------------------
Born on Midnight and never want to leave

Doggbreath, Rogues Riding Sell me your ink! any Cerulean island 500/unit

Yer daily horoscope reads: Investing in insane dogs will result in good health.

Wow. WOW. Thank you to all who entered this contest; judging was SO HARD! So many excellent escape plans, and so hard to pick the winners! I've had to get extra judges in to help me and we finally have the winners.

Without further ado, the winner scoring a Hera Doll trinket, renamed sloop and a Hera Egg (along with Shiny Sun Points):

Velternal of Obsidian! Congratulations! Your prizes will be in your inventory soon.

Two runners up scoring each a renamed sloop, Hera Egg and rose trinket (as well as Shiny Sun Points) are:

Cattrin of Obsidian and Kiyit of Obsidian

Honorable mentions winning the 'Escape Package' of a desktop map, rowboat bed and Hera Egg each are:

Noeuli of Emerald , Phaerie of Obsidian and Doggbreath of Cerulean !

Congratulations to you all! And good luck on finding those pesky critters in the game!

Can't wait for the next one. :) <3

Congrats to Velternal, and to everyone else! It was great getting to see everyone's takes on the escape! Thankye Hera and the other judges for your accolades. It was very exciting to see I was a runner up in such a close competition.

I'm also seconding Cattrin's hope that there are more events like this in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to stretch some old artistic muscles. ^_^
