Stratics is pleased to announce a new contest! Harkening back to the first Broadsword newsletter and sparked by the Jurassic World-inspired "Prattkeeping" image used therein, we challenge you all to recreate a famous movie scene in UO using only UO graphics.

  • You MAY manipulate the image with photo editing software, but you may NOT use any graphics or images from outside of official UO. Use of officially approved third party emulators and programs is acceptable. No graphics from free or third party shards will be accepted.

  • You may include a statement or image to show others what your image is about, or you may let your image speak for itself.

  • You may work with a partner or team, but only one reward will be issued per team if that team is selected as a winner.

  • Each entrant (or partnership/team) may submit as many entries as they like, but may only place once.

  • Entries must adhere to the Stratics Rules of Conduct and Terms of Service.

Post your entries in this thread by 11:59PM (Eastern timezone) on Sunday, June 5th. At that time, the thread will be closed and winners selected by Stratics staff.

The winners will receive glory, respect, and the following prizes:

  • 1st Place: Winner's choice of a 1-month UO game time code, an 11th year collection, or a legacy token on the shard of their choice. One month of Stratics Professional and a medal indicating 1st Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.

  • 2nd Place: Winner's choice of the remaining two unchosen rewards. A medal indicating 2nd Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.

  • 3rd Place: The remaining unchosen reward. A medal indicating 3rd Place in the contest applied to the winner's Stratics account.

We look forward to seeing what this creative community can come up with. Good luck!

Quick question... can we use things in UO to build something that is not in UO? An example being.. using different items in UO to build a toilet etc. Toliet

Of course! You're trying to make a movie scene, so use your imagination! As long as the pieces you use to build your scene are all production UO graphics, it's fair game. :)

I was bored :)

Figured I would do a quick couple of submissions... 8 hours later LOL..

If you have not seen the latest episodes of Game of Thrones STOP HERE!!
If you are a total purist and want to "finish the books" before you watch the series.. STOP HERE and then ask yourself if you think you will still be alive in 2035 when GRRM finally finishes them :p

Even though this submission doesn't qualify for a prize since we are both staff, it was still fun making this!

Not that I wish anything bad to happen to GRRM, but I think Brandon Sanderson will have finished them long before 2035.

Was trying to do the Stay Puft Marshmallow dude from Ghostbusters but after a week of trying that was a no go lol. Stuff from one floor will not raise up to the next floor good enough to make him solid... dang it.. maybe someone else can figure it out before the deadline...

Thank you to everyone who submitted! I'm rounding up the volunteer judges and we should have a verdict sometime tomorrow evening.

Note that because of the shift to the UO store, the prizes will be distributed a little differently than originally intended (since there are no more tokens), but each winner will still get the full prize of their choice. Future contests will be adjusted accordingly. Please bear with us!

We have another contest coming up soon... so break out your quills! ;)

And the winners have been chosen!

Several staff members chose their top picks. It was a tough call since the entries were all very good, but the final ranking fell as follows:

First place- @Conleth with Alice in Wonderland scenes
Second place- @Piotr with a fight scene from Kill Bill
Third place- @Kylie Kinslayer with a Godzilla attack scene

I have applied the winners' medals and am contacting the winners individually for their other prizes.

Thank you all very much for participating and congratulations!
