The forums were founded on the 24th of November, which, incase you don't keep track of time, is this month. We always do something every year, various competitions, questions to us, and other stuff and things. And So we will do so again!
I'm starting this thread as a kind of idea thread, and discussion. Have any sort of idea for us? The general stuff we usually have can be found in the archives in 2010 anniversary, incase you want an ideas.
And obviously we'll Skyrim related stuff.
Pudding, cake and haggis will be served.

Competitions :
1) Caption contest
2) writing competion
3) avatar contest
4)interviews
5)scavenger game hunt.

Hmm, how about some Skyrim themed Comps, but also some older TES game ones? For example, using Skyrim screenshots, but with some sort of UESP Easter Egg, or older TES Game theme to the entries? Or a writing entry, with a throwback to either the UESP or a previous game. For example, a Skyrim quest turned into a story, with a reference to fried rats.

A caption competition would be fun. With screenshots from Skyrim, perhaps?

A Trivia Scavenger Hunt.

- Using Clues, given in the form of a Trivia Riddle.
- Members have to decipher the Riddle.
- Then they have to go in game, and take/post a screen shot to prove they found it.
- Members have to find 3 items, in each of the 3 games, for a total of 9 items.
- Who ever finds the most, wins (if nobody finds them all).
- Who ever finds them all, in the quickes time wins (if several members find them all).

- - - - - - - - - -

As we have seen with the Monthly Contests, we really do not need just one Competition, as not everyone has the same interests. Nothing says we can not have a writing competition, and an art competition, and other competitions/games.

Now that's a nifty idea. One question though is, will whoever creates the hunt have time/knowledge to do anything relating to Skyrim with it? There is only so many items/other that they can discover and then derive a riddle for in the short space of time until November 24th. Apart from that minor detail, I support the idea, especially if these items are somehow related, and possibly even UESP Easter Eggs of some kind (although not necessarily).

I did think about that with Skyrim. I figured more people would be able to do Skyrim, than if we chose the older games like Daggerfall. Of course, the Skryim Riddles would have to be simpler, as not as many would be familiar with the game yet.

The other option would be to do 5 from Morrowind, and 5 from Oblivion.

Again, we wouldn't necessarily have to leave Skyrim out, as there can be something else/different done just for Skyrim.

How about UESP Riddles or Guess Who. Someone makes some riddles about users and other guys have to guess who each one refers to?

we will all (or most of us at least) have Skyrim then, so hows about a week of challenges? Anyone could set them, they could be specified for characters of a certain level, for specific areas or places, and they should not be game spoilers.

For instance, in Oblivion (since i dont know anything about skyrim) a challenge might be to reverse pickpocket 50 gold onto the leader of the Anvil thieves guild without being caught, or to take three sigil stones in less than half an hour (if youre on a pc, a timelapse vid could be posted), or complete a dark brotherhood quest without being seen by anyone and killing the target with one blow

or they could be directions to a place of interest which you have found - like a mini treasure hunt, eg travel north from Chorrol until you see a forked tree to the east, on the other side of the tree look to the north where you will see a hut, etc..

and a prize might be given, tho i am not sure how or what

Matt, what you suggested is sort of similar to the scavenger thing, so I'll include it in that.

No sewing or actual crafts?! D:

Speaking of I need to find out the best way to make a physical Welkynd Stone with the limited crafting materials I have left. I'm thinking Clay since crystals big enough are usually too expensive!

And before I got a clear picture of Alduin, many months ago back in May I did this and sent it to Bethesda themselves, ((and after spending 60 USD for shipping never heard from them after :( ))

http://unokitsune.deviantart.com/galler ... 0#/d3hj9d8

and sent this too: http://unokitsune.deviantart.com/galler ... 7#/d3hkwr5

A crafting comp sounds interesting, of enough people will participate.
