-Welcome to the Museum of Atlantis, located in the great underwater city of architecture, culture, and art. We hope you will enjoy your visit, and welcome you to admire and discuss the work of your fellow Gaians.-

Upon entering the main building, there is a large, circular room with two people and a large sign in the centre. Looking across there is an ornate double door, and two smaller doors to the left and right sides of the building. The marble floors gleam in the fluorescent lights and one of the people standing in the centre beckons.

No bothering othe guests
-No spamming the thread, or anywhere in Gaia. Go to the Chaos room if you just want to be random.

No touching, photographing, or reproducing of the artwork
-No plagiarizing! Or you're out.

No inappropriate behaviour
-Nothing above PG-13, people!

No disobeying your hosts
-I'm in charge. twisted


Welcome! I am Astera, and I will be your host this weekend. If you should have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, and if you break any of the rules, well, then I get to decide your punishment.

Your other host, Phantom, can also be asked for help. Should I have to leave, he is in charge and you must listen to him. Obey the rules and everything should have fun.

If neither of your hosts are in the vicinity, use your best judgement. We'll be reading posts made in our abscence, so don't think you'll get away with anything. ^_^

So! You may now explore our museum! Feel free to give us artwork for any of our unfinished exhibits, the details are posted on the wall in each wing. Discuss, post, and enjoy!

All winners have been decided! Heap praise and adoration upon them! Winners, you must contact me telling me which of the alloted prizes from your bracket you want, as it's first come, first serve.

Exchange

Leaving the main building and walking towards the tower beside it, you see through the open doors throngs of people bustling about. Upon entering, their shouts of prices and offers drum loudly in your ears. Here is the trading area, a place where anyone may try to sell, buy, or exchange their art with others. They merely shout out their offer, show example or not, and it is listed on the screen. Care to buy?

~Hmm, lack of good scanner is bad. Perhaps you could do tekteks instead?
Too bad my scanner is crap. Oh well, I'll stick around to see other people's entries.
