Twenty-One Days, starting today, December 1, of things in Azeroth of Light Screenshots, from now until December 21. This works for both sides of the equator, seeing how we’re getting darker days in the North, the South is getting lighter. The only hitch I will add is you have to add a caption or haiku to your screenshot.
The topic/theme is light, and all its incarnations.
Never had there been a more welcoming sight than that of the flickering flame twisting and turning in the hearth. To escape inside from the icy winter chill which froze your very marrow and warm your numb limbs by the fire. Sipping spiced cider and watching the snowflakes fall beyond the window, salting the pumpkin patch with speckles of white… now that’s home means.
And in the land they guard so well
Is there no silent watch to keep?
An age is dying and the bell
Rings midnight on a vaster deep.
But over all its waves, once more
The searchlights move, from shore to shore.
(The Searchlights by Alfred Noyes)
On the subject of light at the end of the tunnel, remember there is only 4 and a bit days left to enter my competition and win something from the pet store (and yes pretty shiny colour changing mounts and puppies would be an option).
Therefore my challenge to you is this:
Pick one of the following
1. Store purchased pet
2. Pet available in game through pet battling
3. A creature which exists in game but isn’t yet a mini pet
and describe how you would make it available if you were a game designer. It could be through questing, through a random drop or from something else entirely. Your submission could be screenshot based, purely text or in iambic pentameter if that’s what floats your boat.
The winner (selected by Mr Harpy for impartiality and who knows what his criteria will be, although I will be overseeing) will receive a pet of their choice from the Blizzard store.
If you don’t have a blog you can still email me your submissions and I’ll post them here. My email address is on the right hand side bar (don’t forget to remove the spaces). If you have a blog, post them there just either link them here or email me to make sure I’ve noticed.
The last date for submissions is Sunday the 8th of December and as long as it’s that Sunday somewhere in the world when you email or post it, your entry will be considered.
Any questions feel free to ask, I mostly don’t bite.
