Megalith All in the Family Challenge! Winners Announced!

Postby Jadeunicorn » September 11th, 2011, 4:36:14 pm

Welcome to the Megalith All in the Family Challenge!

Some people already know I've been working on a project called Minicorn Megalith (details can be found in my profile). Well, part of that is the Megalith family, and I've decided I wanted to do a little challenge with them, so they can go forth and multiply!

Do you want to help them be fruitful? Do you like Minicorns? Do you enjoy contests and challenges? Whatever reason you have to join this challenge, I'm happy to have anybody on board.


Here are the lovely progenitors, Minnie and Mickey Megalith:

ImageImage
Trilithons are megaliths composed of two vertical stones and a horizontal stone on top of them. Oh, such weary and sore hooves after such an adventure!

If you already own a Megalith or have bred them, don't worry, you can take part in this challenge still as well! Just read the details below.


Black List


Rules:

1. The goal will be to breed as many generations as possible of Megaliths. The longer the family grows, the better!
2. The start date of the challenge is November 1, 2011 (Eastern/Magistream Time) - all creatures eligible must have a birthdate of November 1, 2011 or later!
3. Everyone will have 6 months from the start date to breed as many generations of Megaliths as possible, making sure to follow the lineage rules. If a certain Megalith does not follow the rules, it will not count and be disqualified. I will attempt to notify people when I notice a Megalith that does not conform to the lineage rules.
4. For those that already have Megaliths, fear not, you can start at whatever generation you are currently at and continue from there. This does not mean you will be ahead - I will note what Gen everyone starts at, so the only ones that will be counted are the ones bred during the 6 month period.
5. You will need to find your own mates for your Megaliths, even for the first one I give you (see the mate rules below). I will attempt to allow time for everyone to have their grown Megalith plus a mate before the start date.
6. You MUST follow all the lineage rules below:
  • The Megaliths should be mixed bred, Light x Dark.
  • Please use a SB mate for each Megalith - confirm that SB wasn't used previously in the line.
  • All Megaliths should be named, and that name needs to start with the letter M (I know we might end up some repeated names, and that's OK).
  • All Megalith mates should be named as well, but that name doesn't need to start with any specific letter.
  • NO INBREEDING!
  • DO NOT freeze, release, sell, or gift any Megaliths - if you no longer want them, please send them back to me.
7. You can report here every time you breed a new Megalith and what you decide to name it. However, it's not required you do so. It just helps remind me to check people's progress, and I think it's fun to see everyone posting new babies. :D
8. Yes, there will be prizes. Please see the 2nd post for the Prize List.
9. If you are interested in joining the Megalith All in the Family Challenge, please use the form below! (NOTE: The last question is just a fun question! Don't take it too seriously - daydreams are welcome. :lol: )

Events

Some ideas of planned events are listed here - these will be to promote the challenge. If you would like to assist in any of them, please let me know.

Megalith Crystalwing and Puvia Raffle - Event Complete!

Image
Code: Select all
[img]http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn210/DE-web/magistream/megalithraffle.png[/img]

Storyline:

The Megaliths will soon arrive at Stonehenge, as mating season draws nigh. In the months before they approach the ancient circle of Trilithons, other creatures come to prepare for their arrival.

The Sun-Stone just outside the ring heralds the coming of the winged ones. Not only does the sun rise directly above it at the summer solstice, but it calls to those creatures that are drawn to the summer, to the sun.

The work has been long and hard, but summer has come to a close. Now, the winged ones can rest knowing that they did well to prepare for the coming of the Megaliths.

Where will they make their nests and find respite? Perhaps a kind Magi will offer their Keep. Will it be you?


Megalith Gold Giveaway - Event Complete!

Image
Code: Select all
[IMG]http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn207/jadeunicorn/Megalith%20Gold%20Giveaway/megalith-giveaway-banner-mini.png[/IMG]


Storyline:

The Megaliths call to Minicorns far and wide. Every land they pass through, Magi can hear their neighs. They seek companions to join them at Stonehenge, to take up the journey with them and eventually participate in the festivities.

How many other Minicorns will they gather?


Megalith Scavenger Hunt - Event Complete!

Image
Code: Select all
[img]http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn207/jadeunicorn/Megalith%20Gold%20Giveaway/ScavengerHunt-Large.png[/img]

Storyline:

The Megaliths must travel far to reach Stonehenge, and they use this time of year to stop and visit certain places. Their Honor Guard follows them wherever they go: Ariessa, Solar Hippogryphs, Lunar Hippogryphs, Direwolves, Albino Direwolves, Nandi Bears, Albino Nandi Bears, Kitsunes, and Arkenian Kitsunes. Once the journey is finally at an end, and the Megaliths have reached Stonehenge, the Honor Guard will seek Keeps to rest in.

Do you want to give the Honor Guard a nice home? If so, do you think you can find where the Megaliths have traveled?

Added you to the list Golden, and have noted that you're already at 2nd Gen. You should have plenty of time to grow that baby up and find a mate before the official start time (only Gens bred after the start time will count toward your total). Oh, and the last question was just a fun question to see if anyone has a personal goal of what they'd like to reach! :D
