EQResource 3rd Anniversary - A Game of Clue!
« on: August 07, 2014, 04:05:37 PM »



Update 1: Our first winner is Gokulot!
Update 2: Say congrats to our second winner, Romance!
Update 3: Our third winner, winning with the very first guess of the round, azmodaeus!
Update 4: Edrick is our fourth winner!  One more to go!


The Contest -

We have picked a zone in EverQuest, and you guys get to try to guess the zone we picked!  You can find clues on the EQResource website while you do your normal browsing.  Each time you load a page on EQResource, there is a chance you will have a clue displayed on the page.  There are 10 clues for each zone.  2 clues will be available to be discovered on day 1, 2 more will be added on day 2, etc.  If the zone is guessed before the contest ends, we will pick another and reset the clues!

Here is a sample of what a clue looks like, if you are lucky enough to stumble upon one (click image for larger view):




The Rules -


 - The contest officially runs from August 7th - September 7th.
 - To get hints, simply browse the EQResource website and pay close attention to the top of each page!
 - Hints that appear on pages are clearly marked "Contest Clue:" and link back to this thread.
 - 2 new clues will be added to the clue pool each day, until there are 10 clues or until the zone has been correctly guessed. Also, the frequency of the clues appearing across pages will increase each day.
 - You can share hints you find on this thread, with your friends, or you can keep them a secret!
 - To make a guess, simply post your guess on this thread!
 - If you make a guess, it must be clear that you have intended for it to count as your daily guess.  You should word it something like "my guess for the day is Qeynos".  You should NOT word it like "I'm thinking Qeynos maybe".
 - You get 1 guess per day.  The day ends at 11:59pm Pacific Time.
 - You can only win 1 reward from this contest.


The Rewards -


Whoever is the first to correctly guess the zone we picked will receive the following:

(1) 1000 Station Cash Key

Per Edrick's request, here is the complete list of clues that was made up for the Veksar zone:

There is only one way in!
Have you hugged an Iksar today?
Frogloks and Goblins and Golems, oh my!
Darling, it's better down where it's wetter, take it from me!
These Goblins are a wonderful shade of blue!
I overheard a commoner talking about a highborn! How rude!
Stood for 1000 years....then didn't.
Almost everything in here is undead!  Cleric and Pally heaven!
So, I run up this ramp, then down this tunnel...then...dragon!
Leaky roof. Purple haze. Decaying frogs. This zone has it all!

Edrick seems obsessed with seeing the full clue lists when the zones are correctly guessed, so here it is:

8 zones lead to this one!
'Dem bones, 'dem bones, 'dem dry bones!
Badger, badger, badger, badger!
I hear Scorpion tastes like chicken!
Barren, arid, parched, fallow....and some water
Great place for a Necro to collect some bones!
I fell in to a burning Ring of Scale
The Tower is still standing tall!
...and the Manslayer said "Blame the scaled wolves!" Hahahaha
Don't run to the guards, unless you are scaley, of course.
