Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one) [Winner Announced]


A Letter To Midnight:

Avast!

Need a pimp fix?

Your sloop a busted down 'ole trash heap waiting to sink? Or worse yet, sitting at the bottom of the midnight Ocean?

Sick of riding jobberless all da while, wanna get hooked up and show some style?

Geuss its your lucky day - cause Pimp my Sloop(tm) is on Midnight!

~ Xzibitpimp



What's A Pimped Sloop?


After a brief interview with you the Pimp team will take your sloop, and when we return it it will have the following changes:

NAME:
When you get your sloop back she'll have a custom name that will have attitude and style, and will be the envy of every passing brigand and player!

RIDING IN STYLE:
Cut through the waters with jobbers in awe of the trick colors you fly with your custom paint job!

RIDING IN COMFORT:
Sail in comfort with all the trickest furnishings! Fold out beds, sword racks, and all the other furnishings that today's Pirate on the Pillage wants and needs! And after a long day pillaging, relax in port on your beautiful sloop before heading out to be social!

BNAV TILL YOU DROP!
We will stock your sloop for one pillage [40 rum, 150 CBs] - and all the charts for the arch you are in!

THE LOOK!
Gotta get the threads and a new weapon(s) to match the Pimped sloop!

How do I participate?
Easy! Convince us that YOU need your sloop tricked out more than anyone else. Convince that your life is horrible and your pillages hurt because your ride isn't pimped! You can use the following methods:
    1. Story or heartfdelt plea (1,500 word limit)
    2. Story with pictures included (Each 100 words counts as a picture, so up to 15 pics - but deduct 100 words from the 1,500 word limit in option one for each picture you use!)
    3. Short Movie (5 min maximum)
    4. Animation (6 min. maximum)
    5. Interpretive dance video (60 seconds here, as this is mainly for a laugh)
This is a freeform contest mates. If you think of a submission format that we have NOT listed, and it is a format usable by most fok, let me know and I'll add it in. This is a chance for each pirate to use the format they are best at (or enjoy the most), and have it objectively judged by a highly experienced panel of judges! So above all, have fun with it and use your favorite medium to build your entry! Post your entries in the entry thread, please

When does the contest end?
On October 15th, 11:59 PM server time we will Close the entry thread, one week later, the panel of judges will have the results in and we will announce the winner for the first episode! We will then proceed to go through the interview and Pimping Process... and then... The winner will be P.I.M.P.ed! [Please, I Must Pillage!]

Once the sloop is done, we'll post the episode, and move on to episode 2. All honorable mentions will automatically be entered into the next episode with thier previous entry, unless they choose to make a new entry.

THE SHOW!
For those interested we will be taking screen shots as the project progresses as well as cutting clips of chat logs as the Pimp(tm) Team works! Unfortunately Season One's shows were lost to a glass of water spilled on the laptop. We will, however, be posting the final screenshots of the completed sloops. As season two progresses we wil either post episodes to the Wiki, or make our own web page.

Please post questions here in this thread, and I'll answer them here. You wont catch me in game, because this officially marks my retiring/leaving YPP, with the exception of running a series of events such as this one.

Re: Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one)

I do know what you mean, Dchow!

Unleash your creativity, let loose, and have fun! Each entry will be judged on the creativity of/within the medium it uses, not on the medium itself.

Re: Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one)

I appreciate the PMs folks, but I'm not actually on the panel of judges, so I cannot tell you what will win. All I can mention is that you probably dont know most of the judges, and that they are all very active with events, so expect fair judging by some very creative people.

I'll post the archive ships soon, mates.

EDIT: Silverdagger, hosting it on a web page is fine.

Re: Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one)

How does this whole thing work? Do I have to give you my sloop, make you senoir officer, or do you make a sloop then we trade deeds???

Re: Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one)

Basically it works like this.

We grab your deed, paint, furnish, rename the sloop. The OM helping us screen-shots everything then switches the whole kit and kaboodle over to your character. Then you scream in orgasmic joy at the Sek-Say new ship and start sailing everything everywhere just to get a chance to show off how incredible the customization job is.



Next Question?

Re: Pimp My Sloop(tm); Season Two (episode one)

if i have the tantalizing image of my dreamboat haunting my every waking moment, am i allowed to request it as part of my entry or is my creativity limited to whining only? because, maybe, that is what the "brief interview" with the Pimp team is for?

Open slate mate! Use whatever methods you want to ask us to pimp your sloop. Creativity wins!

Due to some medical concerns I'm unavailble for a couple days. Judging will be postponed till the 19th, and the winner will be announced on the 26th. Only entries up till the 15th will be judged still.

Sorry for the delay mates, and thanks for your patience.
