    Luna Fairgrounds Winners Announced

    Wednesday, 21 October 2009

    Em Eris and Em Nestor are proud to announce the winner of the Luna Fairgrounds Design Contest; let's hear a round of applause for Buns of Glory! It was very difficult to select a winner because each of the entries was spectacular and unique.

    After considerable deliberation it was decided that elements from the other entries will also be included in the completed fairgrounds. AtlanticVlad and Zym Dragon who also submitted designs will also receive a plaque. Below is a picture and description of Buns of Glory's design, please note that the final fairgrounds will include some changes and additions.

    Buns of Glory's design

    "As you walk outside Luna you come to a long fence that’s filled with fire, this I believe will make people curious to see what has changed. When you first come to the entrance you see two signs one on each side. They shall read Luna Fairgrounds.

    When coming into the gate you get two huge flames. As you continue you come upon the Stables, which will be able to not only work as a fully functional stable but also as a new battle chicken lizard fighting pen as you can see there is two sides one for each chicken then when said 3,2,1 GO! The chickens can be told to attack.

    I think this will be a terrific addition to the fairgrounds keeping new people and old coming to participate. If you choose to go the other direction you come to a nice fountain and places to sit with flowers and an overall wonderful spot to sit down and chat with friends. After that you continue up the road you can either go to the stage where you can play instruments or you can act out plays for friends, sing or do anything entertaining.

    You can go to the card tent to play all sorts of games and drink! Friends can relax with playing chess, checkers any game that they like the most. As you go up the road you come to an archery tent, you can practice your long shot or your short shot with lots of arrows available but be careful not to shoot the arrows over the Luna walls or the guards will come!

    As you continue up the road you see a beautiful pond where you can not only sit and enjoy the beauty as you talk with friends or tell stories of what you have kill! Have nothing to talk about? Perfect! Go down the road to the fish shack and pick up a pole and go fishing in the pond!

    I've heard the best place to fish is off the bridge but you didn't hear it from me! If you get tired and it's too late to depart to your next hunt or location you can stay in the camp next to the fishing shack. There are sleeping bags for you, food and my favorite booze!

    Tell campfire stories with your friends and have a wonderful time! I think that my design will offer multiple fun things to do! The tents should have roofs, however I wanted to show you what was in them. My park can be used for guild events, Role-playing events, EM event's whatever is needed it will be useful!"

    Congratulations to our Winner, Buns of Glory & our Runner-Ups, Zym Dragon and Vladimir!​

    Erm, no. That list is downright silly and it has at least one active scammer on it. Sorry to say but it would prove to be nothing but a big whoppin' can of worms.

    Everyone has their own views of who is important and it should not be officiated, especially not in the manner it was compiled.

    Thank you for all the positive feedback! I hope It can live up to ATL's high standards. All the designs are truly amazing and I am shocked to have won myself seeing the competition, however I am glad to that they are going to be putting in pieces from all three submissions and their own creative touch to the fairgounds. It should look wonderful!

    Safe Travels!
