I like the ideas of Literati and card games.
I think you could get a good crowd to join in with those. :)

How about a spades event since so many of us like to play spades?
Also what about of some sort of scavenger hunt event?

Guild charters: you post a guild acronym/name, people write the most imaginative charter they can.

Adjective overflow: This one might also help with people's RP. Write a 150 word description of someone/something and fill it with the most flowery prose to describe it. It must make sense, but the person with the most impressive adjectives wins.

Stage names: Post a list of 50 or so real names, and people have to email you with the stage name associated to it. Email so that people don't get an advantage just for being on when it's posted.

Character ideas: Give a descriptive character name (Johnny "one shot" Long, etc), people have to write a 500 word background.

Risk Tournament

A good online version of Risk can be downloaded from http://www.missionrisk.com/hq.htm it has a 28 day evaluation period but like alot of shareware it still works after the evaluation (of course registering for it would be preferable) Up to 6 players can play at once on the ISP of one of the players

I tend to enjoy the writing genres, and you can do about anything with those...

So, how about a type of fight scene/duel for any style fight at any age of the timeline?

Contest Ideas

Postby Portia » Tue Feb 18, 2003 8:11 am

These are some graphic-geared contests, obviously contestants will be asked to provide links rather than post their images on the larger ones.

Ye Olde Generic Icon Making contest
Make generic icons for each faith, something that a new poster can use until they have a personal one made.


Evernight Banners
Create a new banner ad for the game, each of its sub categories (aka Guilds, Turmoil, Maxim, etc) and Tempers Ball.


Guild Graphics
Create graphics based on your guild or a guild of your choosing. Insulting graphics will be thrown out. This is a game and meant to be fun.

Tarot Deck
Create a Tarot deck using posters on TB to represent each card IE The Emperor- Decae. Post your deck listing (I can provide a short list of the cards and what each represents, Major Arcana may be the way to go with this one), bonus points for actually making cards and linking them to your submission.


Evernight ICQ Skins
Make a skin for use with ICQ inspiried by Evernight!


Evernight Wall Papers
Make wallpapers for computer desktops with an Evernight theme!


Evernight Desktop Icons
Make desktop icons for your PC using an Evernight theme!

Evernight Childrens Book
Make a children's book based on characters from Evernight... this does not necessarily have to be taken seriously, but if you make a book that is a joke and not intended for children, please make note of it... dun need anyone reading it to their kids only to find that halfway through Ike shows up and... you get the idea. Make a web site and use each page as a page of the book!

Evernight Gear Design
Design a new line of Evernight Gear! Hats, shirts, stickers and the like!

Evernight Logo
Create a new logo for Evernight!

Portia, marry me, and bear my children. Those are fan freaking tastic.

Anyhow, peeps, this is what I am processing through my little mind. I will likely be the only staff here for some time, for a multiple of reasons, most of which having to do with the fact that you guys are so well behaved that no one has to eagle eye you the whole time.


I am considering asking some, or all of you, to help run some of the Events you have listed.

In any event, I am using ALL of your ideas here, just will take me some time to get them all listed and running. There was so much to do to straighten everything out here, and I wanted all old issues cleared before new ones brought up. Anyway, I am rambling. The whole point of this is, everyone earns 15 turns, because I AM using all the ideas here (but, Kaz, can you find me an online, not trial version, of Risk?)

We should do our own warped type of Joe Millionaire, and who ever can woo over the Joe, gets extra turns. The Joe would be the one of the lowest ranked members in the different games, and near the end of the game, Joe would reveal to the contestants that he wasn't the highest ranked member of the game, and who ever continued to woo him, would gain extra turns.

See, reality TV is affecting me. Oh god.

So I suggest Caption Contests.

Based on the idea of the whole website contest ...

what about best banner - not as in a banner graphic, but as that guild banner page?

Of course, they'd have to do a representation of it without any information that would do damage to their guild but *shrugs* just an idea since most of the guilds I've known put their information there & don't bother with a website because all the relevant information can be placed on the banner screen ingame, & allow the sharing of secure & not so secure information.

Or of course I could be just being silly ... oh wait. that's normal :)

Y'know... cruisin the boards and all has left me wondering...

Who are the current Mr./Ms. Evernight and when was the last competition held on the boards?

I remember those glorious days of the Mr./Ms. Monarchy competitions.

If there hasn't been one for awhile... I'm thinking we should start one up soon as an official Event.

Alright everyone..with reset coming shortly I want to try and have a few events up in time for people to win turns for the start of the new age. Won't that be nifty? :wink:

Kotori..I'm not sure when the next Ms./Mr. Evernight would be held on the boards but I'll certainly ask and get back to you.

Everyone else who's posted here previously - the following are the event suggestions I'll be putting into play in the coming week, beginning today.

Aria-spades/other card games: Shouldn't be a problem to start for events, I'll get with you this weekend and figure out how to go about it.


Sunblade- guild charter, stage names(?), adj. overflow: With the stage names, did you mean posting a list of actors' character names then people submit the actors in question, or...? Let me know. The other two (charter & adj. overflow) I'll start next week by Thursday 10/30.


Kaz-Risk & Capture the GM: For Risk, again shouldn't be a problem to get going for an event as long as there's enough people to play. I'll open a thread this weekend and if you'll generate some interest and have people post we'll go from there. I'll get with you this weekend also to set things up. For the Capture the GM, I'll be posting a thread in both guilded games and see what GMs will participate. I'll wait until after reset to do this so that it's current-age GMs involved.


Portia-guild graphics, Tarot deck: Should have these event threads up this weekend or by Monday at the latest. I'll make sure to send you the links.


Erik-caption contest: Will start this one Tuesday, 10/28. I'll PM you the link too.


Nagash-name the face: Will start this one Wednesday, 10/29.


Dusty-fish pics: Just so happens that I have fish pics and trivia I'd gotten together for a Survivor challenge that wasn't ever used. So that won't be hard to start at all. This one will be up Wednesday 10/29 as well.


There you go folks. I'll get the events started and posted on the main page as they come, you all bring the players!
