Amateur Hour's Shoppe Giveaway Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote




For the chance at winning a shoppe plot on Melanaster Island, AH invites you to participate in The Glorious War of Obsidian Challenge. You are tasked with a YPP/Game of Thrones mashup by creating an original piece of art or literature that encompasses the following notion:

The Great Houses of Westeros have begun staking their claim on the virtual realm of The Dark Obsidian Seas. The rulers been told that this mysterious land offers great riches, overflowing resources, and a vibrant cultural climate, all of which whets the stones of greed and power. However, the queens and kings of Obsidian's flags are not keen on the idea of giving up their hard-earned ranks to Westeros. After begrudgingly gritting the teeth of pride, these kings and queens have decided to temporarily cease fire with one another to protect the realm together in hopes of staving off The Great Houses indefinitely.

You're entrusted with documenting The Glorious War of Obsidian, in which the famous Great Houses fight the flags of Obsidian for the reign of the realm. Your original piece of art of literature must include notable details from both Game of Thrones and the current political scene of Obsidian, as well as references to in-game puzzles, props, materials, phrasing, etc.

Entries accepted immediately following this post. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 6th, at 10 am game time. Entries should be e-mailed to AHshoppegiveaway@gmail.com. Judithxoxo will compile all of the submissions and remove the names of the entrants to ensure anonymity. The entries will be sent to the Amateur Hour Decision Makers (with Judith not voting), all of whom will not know what entries belong to what pirate. The winner will be chosen by the Amateur Hour decision makers by Thursday, March 7th, at 10 am game time, to be announced on this thread, after which time the construction site will begin.

Entry Guidelines:
(1) Your e-mail should include your pirate name, Discord tag (if you have one), the type of shoppe you'd prefer (as well as the name [Must be GoT themed] and left- or right-facing).
(2) If you're submitting a piece of literature, please attach your final product in a Google doc link, to be added in your e-mail. Length is limited to no more than 3000 words, and the genre of writing can be short fiction or poetry. The piece must be written in modern English.
(3) If you're submitting a piece of original art, you should use an image hosting site and link images of your work in the e-mail. Similar to OM art competitions on the forums, your work must include three images: 1) beginning materials, 2) mid-piece, and 3) final product. All of these should contain a placard stating your pirate name and the date.
(4) Should you decide to submit any other form of creative piece for this contest or have questions in general, please contact Judithxoxo on Discord (Judith#3891) for verification and submission guidelines.
(5) Only one submission per pirate.
(6) Upon the completion of this event, pirates will be contacted regarding publishing their submissions in this thread. Please respect that only the submissions sent via e-mail (see Guideline #1) will be accepted for judging.
(7) As always, play nicely... xoxo


Fine Print:
[1] Amateur Hour will grant one shoppe plot, as well as provide all building materials and construction labor costs for a basic shoppe, to the winning pirate regardless of alliance. Winner may select any shoppe of his or her choice, with the exception of a shipyard and tailor. As long as Melanaster is controlled by Amateur Hour, this shoppe will not be closed.
[2] Should your submission contain any personal information regarding YPP players or be deemed as inappropriate in any manner, Amateur Hour reserves the right to disqualify your submission without hesitation.

Thank you to all the participants of AH's shoppe giveaway.

We'd like to congratulate our winner - Pipsqueak from Negative Regards. His original rap comes from the perspective of a pirate who's woken up in the middle of the war between Westeros and Obsidian, and throughout the story, he gets stronger and fights for the defense of the Dark Seas. Pipsqueak composed the instrumental, as well as wrote the lyrics and performed the rap. If you see him around, please pat him on the back! He has chosen to open a distillery on Melanaster Island, so please support him at White Walker Whiskey.

Some of the participants wanted to share their entries with you all, so you can find a link to those HERE!

xoxo

Thanks again to everyone who participated! As someone so left-brained that it has essentially made my right brain atrophy, I was blown away by the creativity I saw in the entries. We appreciate the effort that went into each one and we thoroughly enjoyed reading (and listening!) to them. You all rock, don?t ever change.
