Welcome to our first annual DEED DESIGN CONTEST!

As a PvE alliance we always strive to reward our members for their tireless work in Wurm - for themselves and for our alliance. The largest part of PvE is building our deeds and essentially for our alliance, everyone's deeds are, after their mayors and inhabitants, the most important thing for our community - the alliance wouldn't exist without your deeds!

In order to honor that, we will be holding an annual Deed Design Contest.

Who Can Join, And How?

Any village within our alliance can participate. In order to do so, the mayor of each deed can sign their deed up here by replying to this thread. In case of mayor inactivity, a member with full management rights for the deed can take over.

How Does It Work?

In order to determine the winner of our contest, we won't simply be accepting screenshots and then one person will determine the winner, NO, we're much more awesome. During the contest period, I will visit each participating deed on a certain date and create a video with all its glorious features, which I will then upload on our community YouTube channel. Afterwards, each of the deeds receives a thread here on the forums where ALL MEMBERS of the alliance will be able to rate the deed. In the end, the deed with the highest scores wins. Any ties are settled by my master opinion ( ;) ).

Winning Criteria

The deeds will be judged by 5 criteria, making it possible for newer as well as better established deeds to win.

-- Deed Concept

What are the foundation ideas for your deed? What are the future plans? Deed Planner File? Anything related to your plans and concept, whether applied in-game already or still just in your thoughts.

-- Deed Design & Layout

How is your deed designed? What makes it unique? Is there a feeling of "magic" or an associated "aura" that your deed emanates? Is it themed, perhaps?

-- Features

Practicality? Animals? Furniture? Maybe there's a church or another special type of building? Maybe there's a grove or a vineyard? Maybe a herb garden or a decorative yard?

-- Challenge Level

How difficult is it / was it to build your deed? Is the terrain a challenge? Are there many mobs? Maybe there had to be surface mining even, or a canal had to be constructed?

-- Effort

How much time and effort have you already put into your deed and making it perfect?

 

What Are The Prizes?

There is only one single winner of the deed design contest. The winning deed will receive:

1. 10 Silvers For Your Deed's Upkeep

2. A HotA Statue

3. A Detailed Interview & Video On Our Channel About Your Deed & Its Citizens

Prizes sponsored by Yldrania

Sounds interesting - my deed (Warland) is still relatively far from being finished, but should be ready to show without shame and maybe even finished until August. :D

What are the rules on helping other deeds? For example I don't wanna enter lemon grove but can I assist other people with their deed?

There are no rules on helping other deeds since we have no way of verifying who built what.

Don't think I have a particularly aesthetically pleasing deed but for the sake of variety and fun of seeing what's going around in the alliance I'll just sign up Windspears aswell.
