November Contest: Turkatrice Toxicity

Crown Prince Lavin's dogs have the run of the castle -except for his younger sister's tower. Recently she acquired a special kind of an amagnae to guard the door, and the vastly alarmed servants categorically refuse to enter. As Prince Lavin's albino direwolf Kira is the prized star of his hunting team, he remembered the Keep's aid and wrote a letter to Archmagister Thane requesting a special amagnae for his sister.

It would, he asked, be as fierce of appearance as any other otrovian amagnae in existence, but its venomous breath should be so weak as to pose no threat to servants -or dogs. In return for this favor, he will sponsor a magi of Thane's choosing for a year's worth of study in Synara City.

Archmagister Thane took the problem to the Herbalist guild, for he knew that some of its members were very interested in the otrovian amagnae; their breath is an essential ingredient in several potions. They revealed that although they are on a search for ever more potent poison, and while they did not have an otrovian amagnae ready to hand him, they HAD discovered a spell which reveals the toxicity of an adult otrovian amagnae's mist. And so long as he was checking anyway, they would be most obliged if he would direct them to the one with the most potent poison.

Hence our own quest: Find the otrovian amagnae with the smallest toxicity for Prince Lavin to give his sister, and one with the highest toxicity for the Herbalists.

The magi whose otrovian amagnae has the smallest toxicity, for Prince Lavin, will win a Styx Sphingid.
The magi whose otrovian amagnae has the highest toxicity, for the Herablist Guild, will win an Acheron Sphingid.


Important change; see this post.

Rules:
  • The contest will run through midnight EST on the 27th of November (all day the 27th, not at all the 28th).
  • To enter to the competition please post a link or embedded link to your creature in this thread.
  • Only post ONE entry, i.e. one creature per thread. You may edit your entry until the competition closes, and you may switch which prize you are going for as much as you like.
  • DO NOT RESERVE POSTS; that makes the thread unnecessarily cluttered. Only post if you have a link to an adult amagnae in there. Otherwise, we can and will delete your post.
  • You may only win ONE prize. If you enter both the most poisonous and the least poisonous contest and would win both of them, we will determine randomly which one you're getting.
  • In case of a tie, all tied entrants get a prize.
  • Entries that have been edited AFTER the competition ends will be disqualified.
  • In your entry, post the otrovian amagnae you are entering in a VISIBLE fashion. No creatures in hidden tabs, or trades, please.
  • You must own the otrovian amagnae you enter. You cannot enter other people's creatures or creatures in trades.
  • The otrovian amagnae you enter to the competition will not be taken from you.
  • Members of the MS team are not eligible for prizes, but may enter if they desire. Previous monthly contest winners will not be eligible to win again for TWO MONTHS.

If you have any questions, let us know in this thread.

Please also note the following:
-To help you get started with your search, look for something new in the Keep
-The quest will take eligible creatures only from your Main tab
- Entries can be posted in the Competition Forum, in the appropriate thread.
-You can do the quest as many times as you like within the time frame. The quest will be available through November 27th EST.

o.O Huh. I thought it might work like last year's Blue Ribbon Birds contest, where we posted once each in the thread like this one. However, the first post here lacks this note, which was in the OP of the previous contest: "Please post your entry "here", with a link to your entry bird" .-.

ETA:
Ah, and the first post here states, "If you have any questions, let us know in this thread."

Darn. It was fun looking through the pages of last year's thread to see the other entries. Eh, looking through the different threads in the Competition Entries forum shouldn't be so bad, though.
Away. );

Miss it here.
Thank you for everything.

So the bird has to be an adult for you to see the toxicity, right?

Since this thread became cluttered very quickly with a mixture of entries, questions and reserved posts, I decided to open the competition forum for this after all. You'll find two threads there, one for most poisonous and one for least poisonous amagnae. The rules for the contest have been edited to reflect that and can also be found in the respective threads.

All valid entries have been moved to the respective thread; any invalid entries (i. e. posting two or more amagnae) and any reserved posts have been deleted from this thread. If you made one of those, you'll have to post again.
Please be aware that reserving posts is not allowed in those threads. It doesn't serve any useful purpose and just distracts from actual entries.

I have a question about the rules. First it says :

Only post ONE entry, i.e. one creature. You may edit your entry until the competition closes, and you may switch which prize you are going for as much as you like.


And then:

You may only win ONE prize. If you enter both the most poisonous and the least poisonous contest and would win both of them, we will determine randomly which one you're getting.


Don't they contradict each other? How can you win both contests if you're only allowed to enter one creature?

Does the first rule mean to say one creature per contest (highest and lowest toxicity)?
