This is your Captain, Astrenose. Also known as Captain Ace. He is a classy pilot with experience in almost everything... Except flying. He's a bit new to the whole pilot thing. Don't panic, he's almost halfway through the flight manual.
CajunLullaby is our new flight attendant. Her greatest responsibilities are the peanuts, her army of evil squirrels and your safety. That last one depends greatly on how she manages to handle the first two.
This is the lucky lady of the contest. DeliveryGGRL is the one handing out all the gold! So make sure you stay on her good side. Which won't be hard since she listens to nothing else than her music. And the Captain of course.
Challenge The end of GGR and/or the world Deadline: Midnight, 25th of December (PST)
Now it is time to face the final challenge! However, the deadline for this challenge is the 25th of December. Which is after December 21st. So we might not even live to find out who won this thing! Frustrating huh?
For those of you that doesn't know what I'm talking about there is a myth going around that in the year 2012 on December the 21st, the world will end. The apocalypse is creeping up on us because the Mayan Calender ends at that very day. At least this is what some believe and even though the Captain is generally sceptical, she have a strong belief in being prepared for the worst. So before landing in Central America to investigate our impending doom, she want you to present her with a worst case scenario. We want to know what might happen to the world, the crew and the passengers (the current and the previous).
The challenge is to create a worst case scenario.
We want a good story and some illustrations to go with it. However, the "illustrations" do not need to be drawings, it can be anything visual that will go with your story. It should, of course, still be made by you.
Write a worst case scenario
Create something visual
Include the crew and some or all passengers in your story
Good luck to both of you, and may the best one walk away with two million gold!
How do I donate to the contest?
Send any donations to DeliveryGGRL through trade.
DO NOT send donations meant for the contest to the guild or through tipping a post.
How much time do I have for each challenge?
The plan is that each challenge goes on 10 days + 4 days of judging before next challenge is posted. The bonus challenges will be on for 14 days. I will post a new challenge and the winner the same day or the day after the new main challenge is presented.
What do I need to do in the challenges?
Some challenges will be clear (this is what you should do!) and some will even tell you exactly what we want (make macaroni sculpture of the Captain) while some will just tell you a story (this is where we are) and then you can create whatever you want that is connected to it.
Examples of what you can do is to write a story, paint a picture, make a short animation. You can practically do anything you want as long as it is relevant, follows the rules and is handed in in time.
Handing in your entry?
You pm it (or a link to it) to the Captain. Never post it in the thread - unless the challenge description said otherwise
What timezone will be used?
Since the Gaia Headquarters is located in the PDT (UTC -7) timezone that is what will be used for deadlines and such. The Captain is however located in CEST (UTC +2). Time Zone Converter
What do you mean with Midnight?
When I say, for example, Midnight the 8 of May I mean when it turns from the 8th to the 9th in the PDT timezone.
