As long as we do a Zygbar contest (even in conjunction with another faction) I'm happy because I have a ton of tan 1x1 cylindrical bricks I got at the LEGOLand at Downtown Disney, and I need an excuse to actually use them for something. :rolleyes:

What about just a story witting contest? Since I don't think a lot of people on the forums know that much about Wulfgard and Nova Refuge. I only know a little about Nova Refuge, and nothing about Wulfgard except that its fantasy.

And that right there is the reason Scorp refuses to remake the old Cantina. The thing is, NR and Wulfgard are kinda the whole point to the site and forum's existence.

Just becuase you don't... :rolleyes: Look at the turnout for the last three contests, I remember the Victorian one alone had something like forty enteries. What I'm saying is that lot more members are familiar with both than I think you realize. And as Loki said, Nova Refuge and Wulfgard are the single biggest reasons these forums even exist in the first place, so it's natural we should have a contest based on them.

Anyway, is there some reason we can't do a NR vehicle contest and a Wulfgard contest? I won't be entering anything writing-related (well, maybe if it were short, but I'm pretty bogged down writing-wise at the moment), but there's certainly enough of a difference to have both at once. :rolleyes:

I already explained that in my post...

Why restrict it to Wulfgard or Nova Refuge, you ask? Well, because I like to read stories set in those worlds, and they are the subject matter of the site. Plus it would require most of you to write a new story from scratch, and it would add another element to the contest (staying true to existing canon) that would not be present otherwise. And hey, you can really tell nearly any kind of story you want in either of these two settings! If you would prefer to write a post-apoc tale, write about a planet that was bombed into oblivion by Helexith and left to die, thrown back into the dark ages and cut off from communication with the rest of the galaxy. If you would prefer to write a mystery or horror story, write about an Inquisitor called into a small, eerie Wulfgard village to investigate a few mysterious murders. Or just go straight-up fantasy or sci-fi tales of epic adventure. Your call!

I wouldn't go so far as to say that NR and Wulfgard are the entire reason for this site (my LEGO creations are a huge part of it), but otherwise... yeah, what they said. And it's not that hard to learn about Wulfgard and NR. They're right here! :) And I can answer questions in the FAQ topics too (and will do so more regularly if the writing contest wins).

As for the pony avatars, you'll just have to go to the thread about it in Silver Screen and ponder the phenomenon yourself. I'm afraid I have no answers for you. It is an enigma. :mellow:

Anyway, is there some reason we can't do a NR vehicle contest and a Wulfgard contest? I won't be entering anything writing-related (well, maybe if it were short, but I'm pretty bogged down writing-wise at the moment), but there's certainly enough of a difference to have both at once.

I'll probably run all of the contests listed above eventually. I'm planning to try to keep the contests much more regular from now on (probably monthly). So the runner-up will probably come after the first contest ends.

Wulfgard/NR story contest, please? Pretty please?

And if it's done, can someone, say, enter into both categories?

Wulfgard story and LEGO video game. That would be awesome.

Well seeing as it doesn't look like the NR vehicle contest is going to be picked, I changed my vote to video game vingette. I have an absolutely perfect idea. :)

.:Yavakaro Vehicle Design:.

Yavakaro is probably the least fleshed out of all the factions and the most awesome (Space Ninja's, Space Samurai, armour you can really appreciate the look of etc.) and also probably the least cliched (Sorry Scorp, but the good guy (Victory) the bad guy (Xarkon) and the guy everyone picks on (Zygbar) are quite cliched even though there are bad Victorians and good Xarkonians).

Also, I think Yavakaro ships are better because, like Apple products, they are designed to look good as well as be good. And I like Asian culture. And the Goryo is probably as smooth as you can get with Lego. And a few other reasons...

But yeh, that's my 2. Take 'em or leave 'em.

Tie-breaker. OH SNAP!

:P

Only reason why I voted for storytelling is because most of my lego collection is currently decomissioned in our attic.

EDIT: Someone countered my tie-breaker! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

I voted for the storytelling contest. But, I don't know if I can write the story I want, 'cause I'm waiting on a reply in the Wulfgard Q&A Topic. :P

Hahaha! Mine is an evil laugh! :P

But seriously, it wasn't me, I voted story and design.

Bah! I'm planning to close this and start the winning contest tomorrow, and if it's still tied, I guess I'll have to solve it Grimm III style: by chance. Coin flip!

My brother Stretch could come and vote. But I doubt he'll enter the contest.

Thanks for answering, Scorp. :)

Writing story all the way! It'd be nice to get some more recognition for Wulfgard, as well as get more people "deelved" into the canon, so that they know what they can and cant do. Its a win-win situation; Wulfgard and its lore get a popularity boost, and story-writing, for the time Ive been here, hasn't been a contest, while LEGO building has. I haev some good ideas for a Wulfgard story... ;)

Welp, 1 AM is close enough, and most people who have posted replies want to do the storytelling contest, so we'll go with that one first. And the video game LEGO vig contest comes right after that!

Closing this now...
