The Luprechaun is hosting it’s first contest! This time of year there is going to be a lot of people thinking about LU and instead of dwelling on it ending, why not channel some of that energy and put it into some awesome creations. Nexus Jay would have wanted it that way.
I’m going to be intentionally a bit fuzzy on the guidelines and timelines because this is the first attempt at such a thing and not sure how it will all go over. What I’d like to see is real life brick creations of Lego Universe situations. This could be anything from gear, figs, all the way up to recreating dragon hunting on Caldera Mar or BONS. The key is, make it real bricks, not cgi, no Digital Design or anything computery. You can ( and should! ) use customization or 3rd party bricks to get just the right look.
I’d like to make an important distinction between this contest and some of the LU contests in the later days of the game: this one has real prizes and we will deliver. The prizes are going to be unique and kind of awesome, scientifically engineered to delight specifically LU fans.
Ideally I’d like to run this contest until the end of January and mark the anniversary of the closing of the game with a celebration. I’ll be posting this on various LU sites around the interwobs over the next week but feel free to spread the word!
Please send submissions to email@example.com
I will also create a flickr group for this where you can submit as well, but all that infrastructure stuff will happen in the next couple of days.
One more rule: it can’t have been posted, shared on the net or entered in a previous contest. New stuff! If you have a bunch of gear you’ve already made then feel free to incorporate that into a brand new scene.
So to sum up:
Lego Universe theme: gear, figs, scenes
Real bricks, customization ok!
New creation, not posted on net
Potential end date of
Feb. 1st end of Feb.
