The Creative Contest!

Hi all,moose_350dhu1xpng

So, I thought it would be great to have a contest this week that tested creativity rather than puzzle-solving ability :D

The competition is simple in that there is a lot of freedom with what you can do; we are asking for you to create something about either the upcoming update, or a general winter creative piece. These can be anything from a Poem about a winter wonderland to a beatifully created announcement graphic for the update.

A shortlist will be created on Monday next week (26th December 2016)


There isn't a new feature, this is to get
you in the mood :D
The Rules:
  • Only one entry per player
  • Please remember it is a fun competition, so don't post anything that is going to insult someone else (posts may be removed by the board team if breaking this rule)
  • KEEP IT ORIGINAL! We don't want any copies here :D
  • Have fun, and blow us away with your creative streaks
  • Entries must be posted in this thread

    The reality that I will be faced with:

    The Night Before Christmas More GGE.

    I woke upon my bed at dawn
    ready to welcome the early morn'
    or so I thought for I could swear
    to call me an early riser is fair
    but a late night of GGE had driven me to despair

    I observ'd the clock ne'er erring still
    I had placed it on the window sill
    but when I looked, much to my shock
    it told me twelve....... :|         
    (I was expecting 7 O'clock)

    I rushed 'cross the room: the sink on-turning
    by brain pounding, my soul yearning
    but somehow I felt a weight on my heart
    last night's berimond had been but a start
    I'd be forced to play more and from my life to part

    As I sat there I remembered
    how the voices pleaded that I surrender
    "please go to bed or t'will be too late
    you have enough smitten on your plate
    if you don't stop we'll break your pate."

    (that's where I got the headache.... :P)

    quoth I, "just one more hit, for the store"
    those filthy pixels would be no more
    or so I hoped but to my despair
    The tents I burned that belonged to the bear
    did but respawn everywhere

    In my clouded judgement crazy
    I convinced myself that I was not lazy
    even though the evidence was sound:
    the truth lay plain and fit to pound
    ev'n my intellect lay neglected upon the ground.

    But somehow the witchcraft was my undoing
    the guilt upon my spirit accruing
    "I'm addicted" I fearing said
    "Begin again, don't be led!"
    but in contempt I lost my head.

    And thus runs the story of my life
    the hate, the anguish and the strife
    I didn't think t'would be so damning
    to log on the site surprisingly void  of spamming
    and be left destroy'd and all but despairing

    And so be learned ye hard of knowing!
    all the rest let truth be flowing
    be tempr'ate with your time in game
    because it can mess with your brain
    and you, of course, (generically *sigh*) will never be the same.

  • Santa, where do you wait
    in this white winter night?
    Try not to forget me
    does not come with an empty basket.

    Milo bird from tree
    spread his wings, flew,
    Bring it with sleigh
    through fields and mountains.

    Gray stronger your asterisk
    bright, bright shine -
    the high Christmas tree
    his way point that you.

    Santa, where you wait,
    anything that pretty old
    hurry not to forget me,
    Book I want - a nice gift.

  • The update is here
    With innovations and cheer!
    Recruit throughout the night
    Then into the morning light.
    The improvements and changes abound,
    So enjoy Empire gaming and stick around!



  • Blow, blow, thou winter wind 
    Thou art not so unkind 
    As man's ingratitude; 
    Thy tooth is not so keen, 
    Because thou art not seen, 
    Although thy breath be rude

    Most freindship if feigning, most loving mere folly: 
    Then heigh-ho, the holly! 
    This life is most jolly. 

    Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky, 
    That does not bite so nigh 
    As benefits forgot: 
    Though thou the waters warp, 
    Thy sting is not so sharp 
    As a friend remembered not. 
    Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly: 
    Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly: 
    Then heigh-ho, the holly! 
    This life is most jolly. 
  • Dear GGE Santa,

    My wish for Christmas is simple you see,
    I wish for you to rid us of players with many accounts used to pound me,
    I toil and struggle playing the game fair while they laugh and jeer with glee
    As they leave us in the smoke and fires during the alliance tourney.
    They use these accounts to feed massive armies to pound on my alliance family
    Dear Santa who watches over the game of GGE needs glasses for many
    Do not even try to hide the fact that they break the more than one rule daily
    Just add a number, open another account where all the castles the same name carry,
    Get your elves to work to find these accounts used by the bully.
    We love the game one on one you see
    These guys think it is okay to use accounts three
    To slash and burn all of us who work fairly
    Our Wish is to have them banned summarily.

    A GGE CHRISTMAS TALE 

    Twas a hard winter in the Empire, Abandon Castle and  Burning Castle, yet still there were battles to fight.
    War has taking a toll of many Alliances throughout the kingdom, but still the battles were coming 4 waves 
    5 waves and the curse 6 wave Attacks, how can we counter theses attacks , as we watch the the 6 waves chills run through us , what can we do , someone shouted open the gate let them take what they want , and let them leave we can fight another day.
    Although we hated doing this we could not open daily as the cost would be enormous then a stranger arrive from another alliance and told us the if we introduce a fire station it would help , also he sold us gems these also helps us against fires from any attack , but the most important of all he said hire a hero this will complete your protection from destruction from attacks. NO MORE FIRES .

    But cheers turn to sadness as they witness the plunder they took as there army specialise in taking food , when this happened there armies took flight . The DESERTED damn we might as well have fought and lost our army through fighting. The Generals said this is not good enough, when we see attacks we panic donate all resources to alliance funds , so although we do not fight we still lose .

    We heard a rumour the there was a New Instructor in the Empire , who has brought the new robotic troop recruitera must have if you have war , so we hastily recruited this new update to are amazement we could recruit 4000 soldiers a day more if you could stay awake and have a feast every 6 hours , so we saw these amazing troops so many but we had to feed them , which could be a problem , so we sent are best soldiers to loot and this balance the problem.

    There were many Ruby Alliances out there but now the poor could stand there ground against these Armies so now instead of losing all battle we could defend the foolish battles , or just burn the first wave of tools off there attacks , because we had martyrs willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the Alliance .

    So thankyou GGE for sending us the Specialist Instructors to help Balance attacks 

    Merry Christmas to all

    A Christmas Tale

     

    In Castle Eib at Winterhold,

    The nights are long, if truth be told.

    The wenches, stout and poorly dressed

    Always strive to do their best.

    They slave away in kitchens all

    To make a mighty feast to call

    The Knights from all around the land

    Who’ll wander in and lend a hand

    With lights and bunting to be hung,

    A tree to dress and carols sung.

    There’s food a-plenty from the store,

    As well as wine, and beer, and more.

    The party beats ring through the night

    Til in the early pre-dawn light

    A fat old guy in a big red coat,

    Drives his sleigh across the moat.

    With Christmas presents by the score

    All wrapped, to drop at every door.

    And in the morning when they rise

    The children have a big surprise

    For in each child’s Christmas sack

    A lump of coal lies, hard and black.

    For none of them were good this year

    And as they look around they hear

    An echo from the night just past

    A laughing echo, fading fast.

    “Naughty kids deserve no fun

    So Merry Christmas Everyone”

     

    Ho! Ho! Ho! And to all a good night.

    All the very best for the festive season.

    Stay safe and have a fabulous time

    Debbie

    Everybody else wrote a poem, but poetry diminishes what you can say and restricts natural flow of thought. A drawing is worth a thousand words, and I hate poems that don't rhyme.

    I drew the samurai sword equipment piece from the samurai event, which is part of the ice event, so it counts for this creative contest. It doesn't look exactly like the EQ piece, and that was definitely intentional. I drew it to look more like Souji Okita's katana than the samurai piece, but close enough. And the Japanese character beside the sword is the word for 'sincerity or 'truth' I think...

    Nice drawing, don't much appreciate the talk about poems, but everyone has their own opinion

    In Chinese, the character actually stands for "test", as in testing for something。

    I believe the character you're looking for is this, pronounced as "cheng" and means sincerity or honesty

     (In simplified Chinese)

    Of course I'm not sure about the Japanese characters, just my $0.02 worth
