    Contest: Gauntlet Raid Lore

    Hey there Dragon Masters!

    One of the things you may have noticed about the Gauntlet is that the raid names can get a bit zany! Because the names are randomly generated, you can get some seriously epic (or seriously silly) ones. In light of this, let’s have some fun with the results of this system by making some equally awesome raid lore!

    Raid lore has been framing and explaining your enemies since the beginning of Dawn. I’ve always personally felt that knowing why I’m fighting this abyssal-terror-frost-demon-dragon-of-awesomeness +2 makes the fight more fun.

    As all of these raid names are new, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a lore blurb for your favorite Gauntlet Raid name. For reference, the longest raid lore is for Treachery and the Tower, sitting at 167 words, so that’s your word limit. You’ll need to include a screenshot of the raid’s name with your entry, so be sure to capture the really good ones when they come up!

    The Rules
    • You're allowed to have one (1) entry in the contest.
    • Enter by replying to this thread.
    • This thread will lock once the contest is over.
      Do not make additional threads for your entries.
      Any additional threads created to submit entries will be deleted and their submissions invalid.

    • Your entry may be any form of prose or poetry (within the parameters of the Code of Conduct), in English, and no longer than 167 words.
    • Your entry must be your own, written lore regarding a raid that you faced in the Gauntlet, not something that you found on the internet.
      You may not copy anyone else's art (written or otherwise) or material.
      If your entry contains anyone else’s art (written or otherwise) or materials, it will be disqualified.
    • You may only submit your own writing that you personally have created.
      We reserve the right to verify the originality of your entry via an internet search.
      If it's not your sole work, your entry will be disqualified.

    Sample Entry
    My Server: WS
    My IGN: *DEV* Mimzy
    My Army Code: OMGBBQNJ (please note this is not my actual army code, whoever’s army code this is, enjoy the billion friend requests)
    Raid Title: Another Zombie From Your Past
    Lore:
    ”This guy just won’t leave me alone. I keep trying to drop the hint that I’m not interested anymore - usually with an axe… or maybe an anvil... Anyway, the last time I saw him, he had a battery made from a potato and a spork stuck in his eye socket. What? I was eating dinner, I had to improvise!” -- Mimzy, probably.

    Judging
    So who wins this one? Our panel of Dev judges will be looking for the following things.
    • Adherence to the rules (even if you've got two great ideas, save one for next time!)
    • Parameter conformity (did you make sure to make your lore lore-sized, etc?)
    • Effort put forth (did you get creative with it?)
    • Bonus points for existing lore tie-ins (could this exist in the Dawn universe?)

    Loot
    The thing everyone wants to know about!
    • All valid entrants will get 10 PC.
    • Our five favorite entries (entries #2-6)will get an additional 25 PC (for a total of 35).
    • The Grand-Prize winner will also receive 50 PC (for a total of 60).

    Lore: This guy wanted to feed from my wallet. I could see in his belly all the melt PC he gathered from previous adventurers. One thing was certain, I would not spend a single PC kicking his guts !

    Lore: "While this is just an ordinary monster of the forest, it came out to take its test. Its power was more than fine, so its quest became to rhyme. With the many men it slayed, it never was afraid. This all came to a change, when this battalion came in range. The ordinary monster failed to see, that the ultimate fighter was he, who took him out of his cave and made him his slave." - the maybe not so ordinary monster of the second battalion

    Hey Sir B, this still needs Lore to qualify.

    Lore: The thief: one who moves silently and stealthily, sweeping in the night looking to obtain treasures that do not belong him. The art of thievery requires patience, practice, swiftness and precision. Fortunately, the Inexperienced Drake Thief does not have any of these attributes so your booty is safe.

    Mimzy, I'm a bit confused about this.

    Are you saying we cannot create a thread in General (or maybe off-topic) for our "alternate" entries? Names which we think are funny and deserving of a lore blurb, but don't want to submit as our official entry?

    I understand our official entry goes here, in this thread. But it sounds like you won't allow us to have fun with this idea beyond just our single contest entry.

    Please clarify/confirm.

Neither you nor those obese winged lizards can stand up to me, and once the lot of you have been done away with, the stories will flow.

    "During my missions I've fought many golems. Only a handful survived our encounters - and I'm pretty sure this is the last one. Well... Not counting the one when I had my eyes closed during the fight... But I didn't SEE that one - right...? RIght...?"

    So I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sure these are the jerks that pushed me off of the ultimate dragon lair and ran away with my MT loot. I mean, you don't exactly forget the face of the golem that shoved you aside so he could have his own familiar or something. Well he's not getting today's loot!

    "When I was young my father regaled me with tales of a beast 10 feet tall whose gaze drew out peoples deepest emotions causing some to slip into madness and attack it. It had no place among the common man and so it left to live alone in a nearby city decimated by war eons before. Now an older man most of my years spent, I enter the city that is forbidden by the world the one closed off from the rest of the country. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the blue eyed beast whose eyes can tell no lies, but only bring the truth of a man to light. It's here that my final test lies lost in the gaze of his blue eyes..." -Geof

    Lore: You look upon the little courier fella, reaching up, trying to hammer a paper on the notice board. "This will be my good deed of the day!", you mumble and proceed to help the kid pin down the note, as your eyes start to widen. Audion's annual 'West Krunan Concert of Legends' is in town tomorrow! The line-up seems fantastic this year, since the old necromancer rounded back together only the finest of old musician legends. Mob Barley, Jackael Michson, Merddy Frecury, Previs Elsley, Davie Bowid... and the Beach Boys!! You glimpse behind the note to the little boy. Slipping over a generous sum of gold you whisper if he can get hold of some front seat tickets. The boy responded with eyes that spelled sarcasm all over them. Defeated you sigh and fish for your other pouch of shiny blue coins. "But don't spend it all at once!", you yell after him as he runs away snickering with the tip of his life.

    Lore:
    Magic Demon on The Hunt


    On the melody of the wind I flow.
    The dancing show is my shadow.
    My collection of puppets is my kin.
    Preserving souls without asking is my sin.

    Always in search for pleasure,
    An inside pressure, to harvest others treasure.
    As soon as I fling their string,
    No will, is what I bring.

    A never-ending story,
    About ego’s glory, stuck in my growing inventory.
    Because I never had a soul on my own,
    I will always remain seeking the stone, that might match my lone.

    Lore:
    Behold the enemy of dawn
    That broke the jaw of the kings pawn
    A warrior of single goal
    That he himself was glassed in soul

    To follow true and fight again
    He took a bite of the king's hand
    The griffin knights fell down in pain
    He left his jaw in like a brand

    And now he's known as the glass knight
    The red eyed beast of glass and blight
    For when you break his face with pain
    The shards shall cut like poisoned rain

    Great idea with this!

    Edit* Title would be Jamus's Band ring of Jaw breaking :P

    Lore: There are storms. And then there is The Storm. And while giants and dragons may fight in storms, and heroes will weather the storms to protect West Kruna, only a fool would call forth The Storm. And when a foolish golem does so, no one is safe. Not the humans or beastmen on land, nor the merfork and terrors of the deep, and most certainly not the dragons of the air. Not even the golem who brought forth The Storm is safe.

    Lore: Exiled from his tribe after his disgraceful conduct during the drake war, the Merman wandered for years in the desert kept alive by the curse laid on him by his onetime allies. After making his way to West Kruna he seeks only to spread his misery to others, wreaking havoc on a number of small villages, before setting his sights on Fallows. Luckily you were in town, training with your battalion...

    Within our solar system there is a gap in the ordinal positioning of the planets. That gap is currently occupied by the asteroid belt. It has been hypothesized there was once a planet and some extraordinary cosmic event caused it to explode. The genesis, lore, and�history of our game takes place on that mythical planet

    Lore: For years, the Violet Warrior had been the laughing stock of the Dragon Rider's company. Violet was not the color of intimidation, and his diminutive stature did not help his cause. In the latest mockery, Waldemar the Crusher mused aloud if the gnome would look like jelly between his toes when he squashed him, lifting his foot menacingly above the warrior's head to the snickering of his fellow orcs. The Violet Warrior sulked away, embarrassed, but a shifty pair of eyes took pity on his humiliation.

    "Constructus colossus figmenti...", Zenno the Illusionist muttered. Suddenly, the Violet Warrior's visage grew metallic; his limbs clad in gears and spiked steel sheets hundreds of times his own size. He turned back to Waldemar and pointed down the enormous crossbow on his wrist directly at the orc's face. Waldemar fled in abject terror, his companions left cowering in his wake. Zenno smirked. "We gnomes have to stick together."
