Items:

1. A Solari: Beyond her wonderful fighting abilities, she's also useful for lighting fires to keep warm.
2. A Tribble. Yes, it only starts out as one, but soon I will not only have anough for my own fur coat, but can start a business to gain some extra money in the mountains.
3. The spirit of Anatoli Bookareev. Simply put, he was the best high altitude climber. He's great in an emergency as well.
4. A Portable Kareoke machine: My signing voice sterilizes frogs at 300 yards, with the machine I should have extra range to weaken any monsters (or kill them outright.)
5. Extra Batteries for the Kareoke Machine.
6. A copy of William Shatner's CD for the Kareoke Machine (The only person I know with a worse singing voice than my own. Between the two of us, nothing could survive.
7. Earplugs for our expedition members.
8. Bill Nye: The closest thing to MacGuyver we've got!
9. 3800 yards of Waxed dental floss: We've got to give Bill Something to work with.
10. Swiss Army knife with all the gadgets: Got to have something to Tempt Bill to come with us.
11. The Swedish Meatballs from the summer camp I used to go to: Easily the deadliest poison on this eath. Useful to bait traps as well as projectile weapons.
12. Ron Siegal- Anyone who can shut out an Iron Chef has got to be handy with a knife as well as cook.
13. Stovetop Espresso machine: Not only good for pepping the troops up, but it's steam nozzle can be useful as a weapon, de-icer and cleaning aid.
14. 30 pounds of ground Espresso: Morale booster and better than casting "Winged Feet"
15. Screaming Teenybopper: Just point out a monster and let the ST know that it's planning to destroy the Backstreet Boys.

G'day, eh! And welcome to the Great White North.

1) Beer. No refrigeration needed!
2) Crullers. For dipping in the beer. (Crullers and beer can sustain life, eh! Beauty!)
3) A toque. (For those of you who don't speak Canadian, this is a very stylish hat - like a "stocking" cap, but you wear it on your head...
4) Back bacon (who says there's no such thing as Canadian cuisine, eh?)
5) 15 Warriors of Discord
6) 15 Barbarians
7) Hockey equipment. Warriors of Discord vs. Barbarians. (Rangers would be good too, but I don't think the Rangers in Majesty are NY Rangers...)
8) Sun scorch = instant Zamboni (for turning snow into an ice rink)
9) Tax collectors = referees
10) Twylah. For the hockey matches. (We don't just need a doctor or a healer, we need an Emergency Medical Technician (retired) - these are gonna be some brutal physical matches...)
11) Octopi. For throwing onto the ice rink during hockey matches (duh!).
12) SCTV reruns. For inspiration, eh.
13) Rush albums. In the Great White North, Rush are revered as Gods.
14) More beer, eh!
15) My NCAA brackets. Just because I'm on an expedition to the north doesn't mean I can't still follow b-ball!

Here goes.
Northen Expansion situation:
  • Very cool!
  • Long, lonely trip
  • Unknown monsters
  • Food supply problem (I don't consider Harpy's meat to be a very good dinner)
  • No Internet!


Ummm, lots of problems.
So, let's get started.

    The staff:
  1. HGS_Shadow: whenever you're bored, just innitiate an arguement with him, including 2 words: "Startrek sucks", and your life will be much more colorful!
  2. A Gnome: extremely handful if you want a place to spend the night, double quick!

    The weather:
  3. A old, trusty Columbia winter jacket (Canadian edition) for me
  4. A Columbia winter jacket for Shadow
  5. A custom-made jacket for the gnome

    The weapons:
  6. Pepper spray: we are unsure what kind of monsters will be here, so what is better than the old trusty pepper spray to solve the problem?
  7. A ladder: to pepper-spray flying dragons or rock golems.
  8. Perify spell: hey, it's good to know you have 30 secs to set up the ladder.

    Food problem:
  9. Kraft dinner, enterprise edition: it's a all in one solution for food, plus, humans (and gnomes) are known to survive for an extended period of time with Kraft dinner alone. (I'm a witness to that, being a student)

    Communications:
    Sattelite works poorly under stormy weather. So...
  10. Fibre optics cable: we'll set up the fibre optics networks on the way. This is a two fold benefit: we have reliable, high-speed connection to Internet at all time; and we will set up the network foundation for the new kingdom! Plus, fibre optics cable is very light.
  11. A 486 laptop: it serves the main purpose: communication, and the low-end processor not allow me to play games! (and spend eternity in NE)

    One last problem:
  12. Energy: a mini nuclear reactor, even Energizer can't "keep going and going" long enough for NE.

    Oh, and another one
  13. Clean .....

1. Lots of warm clothing.
2. Herd of animals (for food).
3. Cookware.
4. Fire Strike. It's good for fighting, and for cooking.
5. Metoer Storm, for those big monsters.
6. Paladin, for the medusae, Greater Gorgons, and to buy time for Meteor Storm to work.
7. Healer, to keep me and the paladin in top shape. Also, maybe after I cut off a leg from a pig, she can heal it and get a neverending supply of pork.
8. Laptop/cellphone combo, so if I run into anything I can't handle I can post in the Tips and Tricks section and get a response. Also, when I get the NE, I have something to do in between monster slayings.
9. Teleportation amulet, in case the forum is down or slow.
10. Sleeping bag.
11. Tent with space heater.
12. One of those cool portable nuclear reactors for power.
13. Lead suit to put over the winter clothing.
14. Electric jeep to haul around all of my stuff.
15. GPS, so I can find my way home when I'm bored. (Paladin plus healer plus wizard spells equals invincibility).

[list=1]
  • A flamethrower. Useful in many situations.
  • Food, and lots of it. Rather self explanitory.
  • Darth Maul's lightsaber. Never know when you get rushed in close combat.
  • A chicken attached to one of those ultra-quick retract dog leashes. Really fun when used against a WoD
  • A treasure chest with 500 gold and a 500 gold explore flag attached to one of those ultra-quick retract dog leashes. Self explanitory, right?
  • Basic toiletries. Useful as weapons when used second-hand.
  • Another chicken. They might get the first one.
  • An ATV, with fuel. Useful if a WoD doesn't take the chicken too kindly.
  • My G4, all peripherals and a solar panel.
  • A 50th level ranger. He can help me travel to distant lands.
  • Invisibility. If the ATV breaks down and a WoD catches up.
  • Farseeing. I'd look straight into the Warrior's Guild with a Paladin
  • Vendral. Nice to have some extra muscle, two heads to argue with and a nice ride.
  • A tobaggan. No point in letting snow 'n mountains go to waste.
  • Finally, Majesty. In case the chickens run away or there are no WoD.

    I Wizard, Korben of the Mysteries, who has learned Meteor Storm, want to take with me the Healer Holy Cole with Resurrection abilities.

    As chaps I will take Goldy Bear, who in one article called me nice finn and can level up Wizards really quick and Kit who is great in economy, he keeps us the gold coming.

    Those guys are nice to have also for chatting while we enjoy Dark Rum and nice big Cigars at camp-fire. Party of four is good also for playing Cards and Monopoly.

    We travel to the snowy mountains with our Snow boards, Reindeers trailing us the uphills. As we camp in our Tent we find out in our Macig Mirror that we all have gained
    experience up 10 levels.

    After 3 days of fighting with wolves and bears we come up to an other town in another Kingdom.

    We meet The Majesty of this Kingdom who tells that there are vacancies at some temples and welcomes us to start the battle for the Northern Ardania.

    1) The piece of paper with instructions for me - Now why would I go lead an expedition to the Northern Mountains without a reason?

    2) Some guy to interpret the piece of paper for me - Did you know that the person who sent me on this journey had bad handwriting.

    3) A large cage - Not only does that person have bad handwriting, that person had an exotic thing for me to do. Wanted a Yeti, a live one!

    4) A coil of rope - Needed to tie the bait inside the cage. The bait is Item 2).

    5) A Ranger - To find that Yeti again. Would you believe I forgot the door to the cage? The Yeti grabbed Item 2) and ran off!

    6) A door for the cage - I'm not forgetting it this time.

    7) A Paladin - To do battle with the Yeti when the Ranger finds it.

    8) A Warrior - The Paladin had insisted on rescuing Item 2) and is now escorting Item 2) to safety.

    9) A gravestone - For the Warrior.

    10) A Gnome - Yes, a Gnome. No other hero would consider digging a deep hole for a Yeti pit trap.

    11) A Crane - To lift Yeti out of pit and into Item 3).

    12) Another Gnome - To install Item 6) onto Item 3) before putting Yeti in item 3). Yes, the Yeti is running loose again.

    13) A Caravan - To carry me home.

    14) A Yeti - To present to the person who sent me on this expedition. Now why didn't I think of this in the first place.

    15) A chair - Something to sit on as I watch the person who sent me after the Yeti entertain Item 14) without the benefit of Item 3).

    It's a good thing for everyone here that I am not Twylah. I would close the contest prematurely. Apple wins hands down everyone. Thanks for the effort. (In my opinion)

    It's a good thing that I am not Twylah.......


    Goldy

    P.S. Thanks for sponsoring all this entertainment, Twy.

    Unfortunately, Apple hasn't followed the rules. If I understand it correctly you were allowed a maximum of 2 hero classes, whereas Apple has brought with him 4: Ranger, Paladin, Warrior and Gnome.

    Come on Apple! You still have time to change it! But of course, it won't be the same without all four of them

    All of the entries were fun and I love reading them. To bad I'm not good at this otherwise I'd participated.

    Awww Rats! I didn't notice that rule. Probably because I am just a spectator, too. Oh well, like I said, it's a good thing I am not Twylah.........

    THE CONTEST IS CLOSED!!!!

    Judging will commence immediately and I will try to post the winner later on tonight.

    Note:
    The prize will not be shipped until the NE is actually released and available for immediate purchase and shipping on Amazon.com - I'll keep watching and post here when the prize is shipped.

    Stay tuned for the winner.... and I want to thank everyone for participating. I'm blown away by the responses. Judging is going to be really really tough.
