  • Valentine’s Day Haiku Contest (Closes Feb 15, 2016)

    Hey there Questers!

    Love is in there air, and we want to know about who in Curio Quest should be your Valentine! We know you can all wax poetic about how much you love your favorite character, but, as the Bard himself said, “brevity is the soul of wit.”

    To keep this contest short and sweet, we’d like you to make a Haiku-style poem professing your love for your favorite character, place, or thing in Curio Quest. If you’re not familiar with Haiku, it was originally a Japanese style of poetry that focuses on sensory imagery to convey a feeling, image, or experience. Haiku uses a format of one line of five syllables, one line of seven syllables, and then another line of five syllables. If you’re not sure of Haiku mechanics, you can learn more from this wiki article; a quick Google search will also give you more information that you could probably ever need!

    The Rules
    • You're allowed to have one (1) entry in the contest.
    • Enter by replying to this thread.
    • This thread will lock once the contest is over.
      • Do not make additional threads for your entries.
      • Any additional threads created to submit entries will be deleted and their submissions invalid.
    • Your entry must include:
      • Your IGN:
      • Your Player ID:
    • Entries must be submitted by February 15 at 23:59 GMT.
    • Do not write a paragraph, dissertation, or alternate form of poetry.
    • Your entry must be your own, written Haiku about something pertaining to Curio Quest, not something that you found on the internet.
      • You may not copy anyone else's art (written or otherwise) or material.
      • If your entry contains anyone else’s art (written or otherwise) or materials, it will be disqualified.
    • You may only submit your own poem that you personally have created.
      • We reserve the right to verify the originality of your entry via an internet search.
      • If it's not your sole work, your entry will be disqualified and all of your Curios will cry themselves to sleep at night.
    • By entering this contest, you are granting us a non-exclusive perpetual license to your entry to reference, reproduce, and alter as we see fit.
    • The decision of the Dev Judging Panel is final.

    Judging
    So who wins this one? Our panel of Dev judges will be looking for the following things.
    • Adherence to the rules (even if you've got two great ideas, save one for next time!)
    • Haiku conformity (did you use visual imagery, etc?)
    • Effort put forth (is something you can show off with pride?)
    • Game tie-in (is your entry about something you love in-game?)
    Loot
    The thing everyone wants to know about!
    • All valid entrants will get 150 Gems.

            Hey Ibex!

            It looks like you're not following the Haiku format, which is necessary for your entry to qualify. If you're still confused, please refer to this post, which may explain what you need to do better.

                Lightning strikes at night
                Thundering roar full of might
