    So mentioned this a while back but It's not starting. The first contest for a free minecraft account is going to be pretty basic- plan a mega project. Minecraft is all about building what you want and doing it well. This of course means that every now and then someone wants to take the already awesome stuff and prove themselves by making it. 1:1 duplicates of the Starship Enterprise, full scale remakes of the FFVII over world, Hyrule Castle (and town!), The tower of London, the great Sphinx, be it a major landmark of something they imagined people have built some amazing things.

    So here's the contest- what would you make? Submit your ideas, as well as some kind of media that gives everyone an Idea. Once I've gotten at least three submissions I'll wait 1 week for last minute entries and then start a poll everyone will be allowed to vote in. After a month of voting I'll send the winner a PM containing a minecraft gift code for a free acct. In addition the winner will be supplied with 1 complete set of diamond tools, and five full stacks of whatever material they want once they are logged into the game- they will also be provided with a two-way teleporter linked to the site of their project for those occasions when they will likely fall to their death.

    Now the hard part of any contest:
    Rules,
    -buildings are not to exceed 64 meters in height from sea level to peak
    -buildings are not to exceed 64 meters below sea level to their base
    --exchanging 1 meter of height for one meter of underground space is allowed- limitations placed by the game as blocks cannot be placed more than 64 above sea level and bedrock is hit at 64 below

    -must be a fantasy theme: The server is for the most part vacant at the moment however it's aimed at something with a magic base- this is do to the fact that their are runes built into the DH server that allow for outright magic to work-if your smart.


    -That said let the game begin

    Didn't wanna do it without double-checking with anyone, but methinks this thread ought to be down in the Dreamer's Interests forums since it doesn't pertain to actual RPing. Maybe we could make a new contest thread there? From what I'm seeing it looks like we only have a contest thread set up in RP Kingdom.

    It might not hurt to make a contest forum under Dreamer's Interests. Might mean that we can do further things like crafts.

    Though this competition intrigues me... :3

    Go ahead and move it. though if we can get enough people involved on the server it might be nice to use the resulting map as a game setting.

    i'll take a stab at this, but first do we make it in minecraft or just tell a description?

    if a description then i suggest a labyrinth-like theme with lots of mazes, or Mount Olympus god home thing, or ancient times with Stonehenge.
