Fishy's Birthday Giveaway
Since it is my birthday in 5 days, and I have a bit too much gold I've decided to go full Sinterklaas Click on it >;( and give away a bunch of my gold.
How do I get goleds?
The way this will work is rather simple:
I am going to give away 160k, however I am not going to give it away as one large sum. Instead I have split it up in a number of smaller sums.
To get any of these sums you will have to complete a small assignment, in 6 days I shall see who, in my opinion, delivered the best product for each assignment and that person shall receive that part of the 160k.
What are the different prizes
The 160k will be split up into 8 prizes:
One 40k prize
One 25k prize
One 20k prizes
Two 15k prizes
One 10k prize
One 5k prize
One 30k lottery*
Mr Trygtato has generously donated another 20k to this event which will form another assignment you can complete which brings the grand total to 180k.
* tax not included in any of them
For the 9 different prizes there will be 9 assignments, which are as follows:
40k Assignment: Make an epic image battle scene
For this assignment you are to make an image of my in-game character in an epic battle scene. You can be as creative as you want in terms of how it will look or what the scene will be, however there are some rules and guidelines:
- It has to be an epic picture so basically, the word "epic" should be a good description of it and when I first see it, epic should be the first thing that comes to mind.
- There needs to be a clear appearance of my in-game character, preferably make it the main focus. (there are pictures for the character below)
- You can make the image in any way you want, whether you prefer Photoshop, paint, drawing it with a pencil, or cutting out pictures and glueing them together
Screenshots for the character can be found here. Both the sword and great hammer or something close to that is allowed in terms of weaponry for the character.
25k Assignment: Make a birthday card
Since I am giving away a bunch of gold the day after my birthday, I also want a birthday card. There aren't really rules for this one, but I can give you some tips:
- Putting in a joke or more can really help.
- Making it Fish related can really help as well.
- If you want to use a name, you can use either my gamename (or something close to that i.e. "Fishy" or "Terror") or you can use the name "Max", it's all up to you.
- Just like the last one it's up to you how you want to make the image, photoshop, drawing etc. go nuts ;p
20k Assignment A: Why should you get...
By far the easiest assignment of all. Write a small piece about why I should give you this 20k. Why do you think you deserve this prize. This assignment is completely empty, you can write simply what you will buy or write some story about how your pet rat abandoned you and the gold shall be used to find him.
Both are acceptable though one of them has quite a larger chance of winning over the other one
15k Assignment A: Write a poem
For this prize you have to write a small poem related to Fish. I don't care if it's about eating them, hoarding them or whatever. However:
- It has to be at least 5 lines
- Rhyming is optional but nice to have
- Again, funny stuff/jokes can get you some extra points.
15k Assignment B: Show me your Fish
For this assignment I want you to make a picture of your aquarium, your friend's pond in the backyard, whatever. I just want a cool picture of a Fish. There is one rule however:
· In the picture you have to hold up a note proving that you(or a friend irl ofc) made the pic. I only have to see the note, and it has to contain the word "potato"
10k Assignment: Make a fishy meme
For this assignment all you have to do is make a funny meme about a (or more) Fish. The only rule:
· You have to make the meme yourself, so none of that pre made shit from meme generator or something, I want you to find a pic yourself and put a joke on it.
5k Assignment: Find the funniest whatever
Again a really open assignment. All I want for this one is the funniest whatever you can find. It can be a meme from 9gag or reddit, some vid on youtube, I don't care. I just want to see the funniest internet thing you got ;p
However, it has to be one single thing, one vid/one post etc
People can choose a number from 1-200 and I shall find a website to pick a random number. Or just write a program for it myself
There are a couple extra rules that come with this giveaway:
One man can't win them all.
To keep it a bit fair, it's not possible for 1 person to win all the prizes, so I have thought of a couple rules for this:
- A single person can win 2 prizes at most not including the lottery
- You can only win 2 prizes, however you can try for all the prizes. For example: One can try for the 40k, 15k and 10k prize but only win the 40k. The more prizes you try for, the bigger the chance you actually win one of them.
- In the unlikely event that someone tries for multiple assignments and actually wins more than 2, the two highest rewards will be chosen and the other prizes you would have won will be given to the second place.
- No matter how many prizes you win, everyone who enters the lottery can win it.
- If I as admin warn you in-game before the end of the contest, and you do win a prize, I will take away 5% of it and add it to the lottery. (this includes reports)
- If you try to enter multiple times for the same assignment using different accounts, you will be disqualified.
- If you want to enter, you need at least 1000 kills
How to enter
If you wish to enter for one or more of the assignments, you can do that in 3 different ways:
· You simply post in this thread in what assignments you are entering and in spoilers you put the entries. (You don't have to do it all at once, you can for example put in a number for the lottery now and post a pic for something else later.
· You can send me a pm on the forum*
· You can send them directly to me on steam* http://steamcommunit.../id/TerrorFish/
· To enter the lottery you simply have to post here saying you want to enter the lottery and tell me what number.
* This is for people who don't want to make their entries public just yet, however I will be posting all entries after the giveaway is over unless you specifically ask me not to.
I'm still considering pushing the date back a day or 2 but for now, you can enter for prizes until the end of my birthday; 23rd of April 23:59.
I wanted to post this saturday and give the gold on my birthday but seeing as rip forum...
TL:DR Do shit, git gold
