What might the rounds be for example?

1st Nov 2007, 1:04 PM
This looks like an interesting contest - but I have to ask: is Bon Voyage required? Because I don't have it yet and I know that pirate ships became available in that EP.

1st Nov 2007, 4:33 PM
I never usually plan the rounds until it's time, but they're never usually difficult.

And no, you don't need Bon Voyage, cause I don't have it either.

Name: Kit Zukai.
Age: 472, give or take a few decades.
Country of Origin: Avalon, the Blessed Isle.
Favored Loot: Jewels! The oh-so-sparkly treasure!

Biography: At a few centuries old, Kit's considered a child amongst the Fae, and this isn't helped by her rash and headstrong nature. Not yet ready to settle down as part of the Unseelie Court, Kit ran away to sea to make the most of her youth. Her favourite activites are drinking, brawling, and singing, in no particular order.

Name: Lief Dawson
Age: 24
Country of Origin: Japan
Favored Loot (money, jewels, gold, ect.): Jewels, especially emeralds
Mini-bio (2-5 sentences): Well i'm fairly young for a pirate and I've been through alot. I still practice my trade but when I'm not "Working" I like to paint, read and relax. I also enjoy swimming in my pool, and being outdoors. But I think my favorite thing is spending time with animals, I plan on getting some soon. Living alone can be quite lonely...



Body or waist up

Name: Asatad Incubi
Age: 692
Country of Origin: Second Circle of Hell
Favored Loot (money, jewels, gold, etc.): Jewels
Mini-bio (2-5 sentences): Tremble, mere mortal, for thou hath lain eyes on the fearsome demon Asatad! Actually, Asatad isn't all that fearsome or tremble inspiring. In fact, the other demons kicked him out about three-hundred years ago for flooding the palace because he thought a swimming contest might have been fun. Ever since, he's roamed the earth and caused (unintentional) mayhem wherever he went. Recently, he's taken up piracy because he, and I quote, "likes the shinies."

Woot! Sounds like a fun contest. :)

Name: Eve O'Shane
Age: 27
Country of Origin: Ireland
Favored Loot: I don't play favourites. If it's of any value, ye best bid it goodbye.
Mini-bio: Well, I fell in love with the sea long ago when I was just a girl, an’ ever since I haven’t enjoyed nothin’ more than the scent of salt on the air, nor the feel of the wind whippin’ through me hair. I was a captain fer a short time, the best time o’ me life fer sure and certain, but I lost my ship in an unfortunate turn of events... *shifty eyes* I lost a bet, alright?! To one of me own men after a night a’ drinkin’! Now I’m lookin’ to join a crew... anything to be back sailin’ on my beloved ocean again.

I think the lack of participation is due to the fact that people have no idea what this contest is about. I know the obvious answer is pirates but what will they be doing? How are eliminations going to be done? What pictures will we need to turn in?

7th Nov 2007, 5:59 AM
Basically it's like my Mafia contest, it's to see who's the best "pirate" out there. Eliminations depend on how many enter and how many drop out and so forth. And the pictures it depends on what is needed to be done in the rounds. Noone gives the round information out before the rounds even start and when they do that information will be given. Right now this is only in the application stage.

7th Nov 2007, 6:27 AM
I hope we get more entries... it seems like it's going to be a very fun contest to me, I'd hate to see it close before it even gets a chance. :shrug:

Noone gives the round information out before the rounds even start and when they do that information will be given.

Well, some contest hosts give the potential applicants just a sort of "sneak peek" into the rounds. I mean, like the name of the round, will a lot of photoshopping be required, for how long will each round last, etc. I'd enter, I have a great character in mind, but unfortunately I can only play Sims once every two weeks if I'm lucky (usually not even that). Oh well, too bad. Good luck to all others who enter.

7th Nov 2007, 10:20 PM
Well I do know for one thing that the rounds won't require alot of photoshopping as neither I nor Honda do much ourselves and the rounds usually last about a week each or less depending on how quick people get thier pictures done.

8th Nov 2007, 4:44 PM
Where is the host? They have only been in here three times! Maybe someone should PM the host and ask him/her if they still want this contest? And not keep you people waiting anymore!

8th Nov 2007, 6:13 PM
The host is sharing a computer with me, we live together. Plus the fact that we work almost everyday of the week for 9+ hours, we work in retail.

8th Nov 2007, 7:19 PM
ah, that's a shame. I thought this contest looked interesting. I would have entered it but as i've never done a TS2 contest before I thought it might be jumping in at the deep end a bit as i have no idea what the contest entails.

I'm sorry to hear you no longer want to run the contest HondaKatsuya
