1 October Contest: Scavenger Hunt! on Sat Sep 29, 2012 10:02 pm

Admin / Weyrlingmaster
Each day during the month of October, a Scavenger Hunt clue will be posted here. This hunt will be semi-OOC, semi-IC: each character can participate, but their participation doesn't require that the character stay within a specific IC physical location and the answers won't necessarily be inside RP threads.

There won't necessarily be a specific location where you can find the answer to the clue. For example, if the answer to a clue is "firelizard," you could link to a firelizard flight, to the profile of a character who has a firelizard, or to a Reference Guide that mentions firelizards.

To participate, get the answer to the clue and find a page on the site that contains that answer.

RULES
  • Only one entry per character
  • Only one character per gamer may win (if you enter multiple characters and they get the same number of points - a.k.a., tie - you can choose which character gets the prize)
  • IMPORTANT: Don't post a link to the page or the answer to the clue in this thread
  • Answers should be PM'ed to Kes (preferably, send all the answers in one PM at the end of the contest since our PM boxes are limited in size)
  • Each clue is worth up to three points:
    • One point for a correct answer
    • One point for finding the answer in an IC RP thread
    • Bonus point: being the only character to pick that page/thread for the answer
  • The last clue will be posted on 10/31; you have through Wednesday, 11/7, to submit your answers to me via PM

WINNERS/PRIZES
Winners will be announced on Saturday, 11/10 (or possibly Sunday, 11/11, depending on my schedule).
  • There will be up to three winners (assuming at least three gamers enter)
  • The winners get to choose among three prizes:
    1. A fully-stocked holding (like...everything you need to be a completely self-sufficient holder - a list of everything you get will be provided)
    2. A pair of very unusual-looking eggs (either firelizard or firedragonet - winner's choice)
    3. A monetary prize (4 Special Marks and 40 Marks)


The clues may vary in terms of what they are - riddles, quotes from the books referencing something specific, etc.

The answers to all the clues will be posted after all entries have been processed and the winners announced.

Note from Kes: The clues are going to be (nominally) in chronological order of Pernese history; they're coming from the books, and I'm scanning through in chronological order in search of clues. But don't worry if you've never read the books! A lot of these you should be able to Google, or possibly even use the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon to find.

"Why ring the red?" Teresa demanded, bobbing her head up in front of Jim, who stood, legs spread for balance, on the rocking float anchored at the end of Monaco Wharf.

In the three days leading up to a Threadfall, holders in the affected area made and were given training in the usage of these.

Well, this was one thing he could do as a gift to the Weyr for all the kindnesses to him--he could leave behind a graphic gallery of everyone currently living in Telgar Weyr.
