    With the vernal equinox just over a month away, it is time to start thinking about spring cleaning. To help you shed the sluggishness of winter and get started, the Siege Perilous Historical Society [SPHS] is hosting another contest! The purpose of this contest is to familiarize shard members with the location and interests of other players AND to encourage the creation of new vendors and increase the availability of items for sale as a type of "yard sale".

    Beginning today, you have until Friday, February 24, 2017 to prepare for the following categories:

    Best Decorated House

    Best Dressed Vendor

    The winner and runner-up in each category will win a prize. Entrants will be judged by members of the Siege Perilous Historical Society.

    Contest Rules

    To enter a house in the Best Decorated category, a player must:

    1. Create a post in this thread that contains the following information,

    - Name of the house and name of the owner, as it appears on the house sign
    - Location of the house, either including coordinates and local landmarks or a screenshot of the game map
    - Theme of the house decoration, if applicable
    - At least one screenshot of the house, showing as much of the layout as possible
    - Age of the house (optional)
    - Items of interest (optional), this can include unique or rare items found in the house, rune libraries, public portals or dye tubs, personal collections, etc.
    - What, (if anything), is missing to "really tie the room together" as The Dude would say.

    2a. For at least the two days of judging (February 25 and 26), make the house public where judges or other contestants can access the house.

    - or -

    2b. For houses wishing to participate without being public, friend at least one of the judges to the house prior to Saturday, February 25 AND post a COMPLETE set of screenshots detailing the house, items of interest, location etc.

    Players selecting option 2b should pay particular attention to their post in this thread to ensure that it adequately describes the house and that friended judges can verify all items exist as displayed.

    To enter a vendor in the Best Dressed category, a player must:

    1. Create a post in this thread that contains the following information:

    - Name and location of the vendor
    - A screenshot of the vendors paperdoll
    - An explanation of the vendors theme, outfit, special items, or other relevant information
    - A list of the products and prices that can be found on the vendor AT LEAST from today through February 26 (discounting sellouts, which hopefully will occur frequently during the contest).

    2. Ensure that the vendor is available and appears as depicted in this thread for at least February 25 and 26.

    All entrants must be posted in this thread before Midnight EST, Friday, February 24, 2017. Judges will evaluate entries Saturday and Sunday (25th and 26th), confer together, and post results soon after.

    The judges for this competition will be:

    Talia (our best decorator),
    Vinny (our biggest rares owner / trader),
    GarthGrey (our voice of reason),

    and myself, if needed for ties or close calls or the unexpected unavailability of a judge.

    Prizes (subject to change prior to Friday, Feb 24) will include:

    First place, best decorated house: Raised Garden Bed donated by the City of Moonglow

    Runner-up, best decorated house: Gypsy Wagon Lamp & A Tray of Pumpkin Spiced Cider donated by the Beggars Halloween Collective

    First place, best dressed vendor: an Orc Ship with 7 fully loaded cannons donated by the Emperor of the Seas Britannia

    Runner-up, best dressed vendor: a Clothing Bless Deed

    Example entry for house deco contest:

    Siege Perilous Historical Society - Zento
    owned by Calavera

    Located on the West Zento Road Across from the Boat Shaped House
    (31 deg 13 min N, 49 deg 51 min W)


    This is the public vendor, portal, and bone museum for the [SPHS] in Zento,

    This house has been owned by me for about a year now.

    The house is notable because it is made of Bloodstone, a material available due to a bug with the Lathe carpenter tool last year between Eodon initial release and the November patch. Attempting to make certain pieces of furniture would instead spit out stone wall pieces colored with the wood selected. As far as I know, this is the only significant amount of Bloodstone on the shard. Froststone and a green one were also craftable through the bug.

    house1.jpg

    house2.jpg

    In addition to the walls themselves, the house is notable for:


    house3.jpg

    #1. A Mirror Containing an Image of the Greater Demon Arcadion, a 1 of 5 ? EM Event drop that is really, really neat, to be discussed in a future [SPHS] Rares Post.

    #2. A Treasure Map for Somewhere in Trammel, a rare map to be discussed in a future [SPHS] Rares Post

    #3. One of the Festive Skeleton Masks discussed in last month's [SPHS] Rares Post

    #4. My Siege Bone Armor collection ( STILL NEED THAT EVIL DYED BONE CHEST PIECE )

    #5. A complete set of PUBLIC portals for use by passerbys and vendor customers

    Unnumbered. 2x EM Event drop upstairs, An Ancient and Terrible Crystal Idol Of Unknown Origin, a 1 of 8 or 9 ? drop to be discussed in a future [SPHS] Rares Post.


    What I'm REALLY missing to tie the room together: Other than the elusive evil-dyed bone chest piece, just a few random pieces of bone armor.

    ********************************************************************

    Example entry for vendor deco contest:

    My vendor is An [SPHS] Curator, found at the Siege Perilous Historical Society - Zento house

    * Sample pictures are from my player paperdoll, not vendor, because I'm using the suit atm
    vend1.jpg

    vend2.jpg


    My vendor sells items related to treasure hunting, including maps, luck statues and luck gear, bags of sending and powder of translocation. As broker in items related to treasure hunting my vendor wears a luck suit crafted by me. Including weapons, this suit has 2100 luck before luck statue bonus is applied.

    In addition to luck items, my vendor also sports my "lucky" clothing, a jin-bori and kilt I crafted in paragon gold (gold Gold GOLD!!!). Both items are blessed (and hot!).

    - My vendor sells Lvl 6 treasure maps for Ilshenar and Ter Mur at 20k apiece, which is a staggeringly good deal. I also stock treasure chest odds and ends like forged pardons and treasure hunting related SoTs and SoAs.

    Ok, I've got some examples up, saving this spot for an index of house submissions as the week progresses. There are some great prizes, so throw that stuff you've had sitting in a chest for years on a vendor, and enter to win! Good luck all!

    Well then, here my entry - and thank you for offering this contest.

    HERMAN TOOTHROT´S PLUNDER ISLAND PIRATE RETREAT & BAR - PUERTO POLLO LIGHTHOUSE AND DOCKS

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Initially a retreat for the pirate Herman Toothrot, it became a bar for his pirate friends who lived nearby - among them (of course) Tyrath. Located in a natural bay south of Trinsic in the midst of the jungle and close to the shores the place offered the best oppotunities for discrete trading and heavy drinking without being disturbed by authorities. Some time later, a lighthouse was added and docks as well as some sort of harbour authority for this booming trading post.

    Owned by Herman Toothrot for a bit more than a year now, it does not offer any shiny rares as Herman is no collector and he trades all valuable things for Rum. Rum is all he is interested in. He even has his own distillery.

    Oh wait, there is one interesting thing...

    [​IMG]

    *grins*

    Maybe you like it - I like it very much!

    Thanks for the contest!

    - Assassin's Guild. Sargatanza.
    - coordinates: 1278, 1488; near 40 steps to the West from Britain Cemetery fence, in the beggining of "Snake Trail".
    - Theme of the house is applicable, in two words - fun&scary! Mainly it's a lab, but work still in progress.
    - screenshots in the attached files (1 floor - meeting hall :brokenlink:, 2 floor - laboratory :devil:, 3 floor - living quater & gym:sword:, 4 floor - the roof :beer:, 5 little floor - top of the lighthouse:pirate:)
    - this place 1 year old
    - There is pretty much rare items; there is a bunch of secrets (like fire exit) and hided things (like if you try to pull up body on second floor, on the table, there is a lot of organs under).
    There is couple custom made sculptures, one of a kind: 1 - in Mr Kelmo honor (2 floor, hat engraved (I urge you not to look for similarities and to associate a respected person with the names of things :))), 2 - ultimate Ultima Online weapon (1 floor, pedestal engraved).

    *I'd be happy to write a story about this place, but it's secret, you need to be a part of Siege Perilous Assassin's comunity ;)
    *Once this place was own by gorgeous Miss Joline Maza! :rolleyes:
    *Once this place was visited by Maniac (he left a message on board and disappeared)! :stir:
    *There is two Heralds (one from entendant token, one from rent contract), but no one of tham speak :cursing:
    *All rare or "expensive" items in this place have history for me, and the fantastic peoples behind them! :love:
    **Beware of the time machine on second floor, it's working! :facepalm:
    *** If you still manage to use it... Heh, welcome to The First Age of Darkness and say hello to Mr Mondain :cool2:

    Can enter once per person Razz, that way folks with multiple accounts don't have an advantage. Any house can be entered, including traditional houses like castles and keeps.

    The Scurvy Rogue

    [​IMG]

    Sonja is a foxy pirate that peddles her “acquisitions” at Herman Toothrot’s Pirate Retreat & Bar. She can be found on the shore, South of Trinsic, at 158 South by 53 East.

    [​IMG]

    She offers all manner of nautical and treasure hunting equipment, supplies, and décor.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Supplies of note include:

    • Fuse Cords, in lots of 50 for 50,000gp
    • Ship Cannons, from 12,000 to 24,000gp
    • All other supplies required to care for, and fire, your big guns!
    • Nautical themed décor, ranging from 5,000gp to 25,000gp
    • Treasure Maps & treasure hunting supplies (including Skeleton Keys)



    She also plans to expand into fish supplies and gear. So, keep a close eye on The Scurvy Rogue. (Of course! Who wouldn’t keep an eye on a scurvy rogue, especially one that looks like Sonja!)

    @Silent Singer I think you may have read my post while I was editing it. I had a little trouble getting the images in, and your post was made at about the same time I was fixing it. Can you see it now?

    Creeger, just edit your post, delete old images and draw them from your computer, not from a twitter page, and drop them in your post. No need to upload them somewhere first.

    @FrejaSP Yep, those are what my bags actually look like in the EC. In the CC, they probably look like a big mess. I don't know, I don't even have the CC installed.
