Ardania's gotten a little too small for all of us and it's time to head NORTH!

But... what are we going to take with us? Hmmm... let's see. Time for a new contest!

Here's the idea, gang:

You've been selected to head up an expedition to the Northern Mountains of Ardania. It's cold up there and there's lots of scary monsters (oooooo!). You're going to need to get organized and make a packing-list. BUT, in order to travel swiftly, you've been limited to *FIFTEEN* items (see note).

The forum member who comes up with the best packing-list wins a prize from ME!


Note: The maximum number of items you can have on your list is 15. However, you can include specific things from real-life and/or from the Majesty game -- including a maximum of 2 specific Majesty SPELLS (sovereign and/or guild, and each spell counts as 1 item) and/or a maximum of 2 specific Majesty hero-classes (example: a Solarii and a Healer or a Paladin and a Cultist, etc., and each hero counts as 1 item). You are free to mix and match real-life items with Majesty items... and if you're brave, you can even include other Forum Members on your list (they'll also count as items)! But the total number of items can be no more than 15.

A hint -- Creativity, Originality and Humor count BIG with me... and I'm the one judging the lists.

Rules:
**No more than 15 total items.
**Include a brief reason why you're including each item, unless it's obvious.
**Anyone may participate, as long as they are registered members of this Forum!
**The contest will END on Tuesday, March 20th at 4:00pm U.S. Central Time. No exceptions - and late submissions will just be flat outta luck.


OK, so now you're asking... WHAT THE HECK ARE WE COMPETING FOR AND WHY THE HECK SHOULD I BOTHER???

The prize is a copy of "Majesty; The Northern Expansion" as soon as it's released and ready for immediate shipping on Amazon.com. I'm payin' for it. If the winner lives within the continental U.S., I will buy the NE and have it shipped directly to the winner's home. If the winner is overseas, I will buy the NE and have it shipped to Jay Adan at Cyberlore and he has (most graciously) agreed to ship it to the winner at his expense. (Thanks, Jay!)

So, there ya have it. Start packing!!!!

- Twy

Another note: (Disclaimer) This contest was entirely my idea and my responsibility. Cyberlore is not responsible for anything connected to this contest. I agree to take full responsibility for the purchase of the prize and arrangements for shipping. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at "texasmedic@aol.com" and make sure you use "CYBERLORE CONTEST" as your e-mail subject.

2. A box of matches and a can full of gas- A guys gotta stay warm right?

4. Some firecrackers- To scare the beegeesus out of all those idiotic followers of Krolm up there.

5. A big @$$ sword- "Sticks and Stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Remember that old saying? Let's focus on this part: Styx and Stones will break my bones. Need i say more?

6. My attorney- It's the 21 century, if any trolls try and jump me, i'll just sue em'.

7. Peasant- Need someone to put my tent together.

1. Prima's Official Guide to Majesty. Because what sane explorer would enter the world of Ardania without this handy dandy little baby?

2. A library card, hey don't ya need one to get in and learn all of those cool spells from the library?

3. Twylah Skye, ok ok if something were to happen to my copy of the Prima strategy guide she'd be the next best thing. Plus she's a former medic so she'd be handy to have around cause of all the injuries I'd be likely to sustain.

4. A tax collector- ok with one of these guys around no monster, especially no troll will touch me because they'll all make a beeline for him first if he's anywhere in the vicinity of me!

5. A Ranger, hey you need a good guide if you expect to go anywhere in the unexplored northlands these days and you wont find a better guide than a Ranger.

6. A toothbrush- hey I like to have clean teeth ok?

7. Toothpaste- hey I like to have nice breath as well as clean teeth ok?

8. Floss- so I'm finicky about dental hygiene!!!! There aren't any dentists around Ardania that I know of and I don't want to get any cavities!!!!!

9. A dentist- in case i get any cavities.. and because there aren't any dentists in Ardania as far as I know.

10. Ann Bancroft- She crossed Antarctica MORE THAN ONCE! So the northlands of Ardania would probably be a snap if she came along. She's a genius and a natural when it comes to crossing extremely cold frozen places!

11. Scuba gear- to ensure i wont die after jumping into the nearest water whenever someone enters the "Swimmy Swim Swim" cheat.

Twylah,

Great contest! I'm not entering as I'm sure that I'm disqualified for living in Massachusetts, (that and I think I'm getting a copy gratis anyway), but...

1) Jesse King. I'm not very good at Majesty, he is. Plus, he can tweak the economy at will.

2) One cell phone. There won't be anyone to call me on it, or for me to call but I'll look too important to kill right away.

3) Some....um, protection....for the..."lounge".

4) Bag of Pop Rocks. For selling at the Magic Bazaar.

5) Loincloth. Barbarians rock out in NE. I'll want to join them at some point.

6) Snowshoes. In case I venture outside the town. (not very likely)

7) Hair dryer, travel iron, bathroom kit and alarm clock for those nights at the Inn. Very few amenities. (As the A.D. here, I can tell you that, in fact, there is NOTHING on the inside of the Inn.)

8) Toilet paper. Good ideas are meant for stealing.

9) One Soloflex. In thinking about it, the Barbarians probably would reject a skinny artist in a loincloth.

10) Breathmints and cologne. For the other Barbarians. Number of amenities at the Temple to Krolm: Circle of big rocks.

Since I only have 11 items listed so far may I put at least one more?

12. A picture of Seth Spaulding in his Halloween "Peasant woman" costume. (That was Seth right?) If I wave that at anybody in Ardania that I don't want to mess with they'll be more than likely to run away screaming with terror. It would also help me get through those lonely nights.

Hmmm....

2. Healer - Good healer, plus going around planting healing herbs for the Ranger to collect.
3. Dwarf - Can quickly throw up structures plus adding some extra muscles to fend off monsters.
4. Spaulding - A basketball that has been conviniently named already. Makes good listener. I Think his buddy Wilson is somewhere in the Pacific. I of course could try to talk to plants in the wild, but I am afraid one of them is suddenly turns out to be a Daemonwood.

6. Monk - I need my daily dosage of "Omni-ahs" plus they are great fighters.
7. Iron Hand - What's not to love about the odds of killing threats in one hit. Hmm, gotta be careful next time I shake someone's hands....
8. Energy Blast - Just so I won't be the only useless kind of person in this bunch.
9. Reanimation - Having a group of skeletons following could have its benefits, then again....
10. Snow Muffler - Protect against coldness and stylish.
11. Umaro (FF3/6) - Just in case I run into a Yeti, I have a Yeti on my side who could match it up or share common interests.
12. Mog (FF3/6) - Have to have this little critter around because Umaro doesn't take orders from anyone but Mog. Plus, his dances are entertaining.
