~ The Spotlight Scenario Contest 2011~
This post has lots of me in it




Welcome to the SSC, 2011!

"Spotlight?" I hear you ask. "Definitely not the community spotlight incorporated into the editor?"

...Wait, how did you know that?

¤ Introduction

Essentially, it's a contest whereby you're given at least 640 minutes (with a little added extra time if contestants need it) to make a scenario featuring a forummer, and this month I give you... yours.. truly! Yes, me, the one and only, the demigod and prince of designing! It can be of any topic the designer desires and may feature music and sound effects to compliment its viewing, but it requires me to be the centre of your story. Yes, centre. Using me as the subject of your story will provide the extreme creativity that you all lack.




¤ Objective

Basically you're supposed to create a scenario featuring a forummer who has contributed positively to the AOKH society and has helped the site come a long way from its' dreary beginnings. Yes, this year you will be featuring me (as if there was any doubt) in your scenario. It is important that you give me credit in your scenario for allowing you to use my noble name in your work. Looping display instruction spamming "All Hail Watson" every 6 seconds works fine; I'm pretty modest.




¤ Signing up

Happily, anyone can participate, but there are certain rules to be conformed to while doing so.

- Your Passport details are a pre-requisite.

- At least one 5.0 Scenario in your blacksmith profile. If your score is even 4.9 or 4.8, please leave and do not return until you have designed something worthwhile.

- £5 for an entry fee, via PayPal.




¤ Teh Rools

- I am terribly afraid of losing. Should I come close to failing your scenario, I demand that you have a backup army of 22 million COBRA Cars hanging around to ensure that this does not happen.

- Trees are horrible. Winters are cold and a bit of global warming would do the Earth good anyway. However, I'm a lenient deity so you may place a maximum of 20 trees on your map at locations.

- No more than a maximum of 12 triggers. Any more just bore the player, and this is a mistake a good designer should avoid.

- You will lose anyways.

- I must be allowed to visit my desktop at 1:20:23.

- I am terribly interested in invisible flying forage bushes renamed as champions. I would love to see them featured in a good scenario.




¤ Judging criteria

As you might have noticed the judging is an extremely fair system that ensures all people get an even ground on the scenario.

How catchy your title is (10): The catchier the name, the more marks you get. Using numbers instead of letters is extremely creative; also, wh do you think arcane alt-symbols exist?

The weight of your file (10): You should know that a 32MB file is likely to get more marks than a 2MB File. I suggest strapping a mountain of useless sound files to add to the weight.

How many times I am mentioned (10): This will be judged at my personal discretion.

Buildings, triggers, terrain and trees (1): Yes, Generally an unimportant feature. However, you can always try earning this point if you're desperate.

Balance (5): We all love a good challenge, but you will be disqualified if I lose. Refer to rule #1.

Favouritism (20): My... friends at SWS will be awarded the full 20 points, while the regular forummers will be given 7 points each, green mods 8 and red ones 9.

¤ Judges

Watson.

That's brilliant Basse. I had fun playing it, although I lost first time (why not? Rather, I won ). Dialogues are just genius; I chuckled at Andan's.

That's amazing Basse. I'm almost tempted to do the let-down sequel "Revenge of Watson".

I'm quite tempted to join this one lol, I feel the creative juices flowing after being idle for so long. :P

We'll see, AoK is buggy for me as I get the toxic screen and nothing seems to help so far. Closing Explorer.exe fixes for some seconds then goes buggy again. Lord Basses Win 7 Fix, doesn't work...maybe reinstalling would fix it...? :P

No seriously, it's an awful noob scenario, only slightly better than that scenario. You really don't want to download this. I'm not a designer but Lord Basse's scenario is so hillarious I felt I had to enter lol.

Can we rename every unit "Watson"?
- You aren't allowed to obey the rules
Means we are free to do anything?
Also, please bend the 12 trigger rule.

I thought "Tyringe" rhymed with "syringe" as well. And I love how I had as much personality as a cardboard box!

Awesome scenario Julius! I find it very amusing how I'm called "The King of Tyringe", seeing as the forummer King of Tyringe is a good friend of mine.

If you want to know how to pronounce Tyringe, see this video at about 0:28. This is just some random video of screaming hockey players, but at least you can hear Tyringe in it.

And ah, my cottage. Has to be in every scenario I'm in.

I'm sure Basse didn't include just about the whole country of Gwyndlegard in the scenario.
A task he was singularly ill-suited to
The red is the best part of it.
