The Fifth Village of Tokakeriby Tomb Raider Story Competition

The fifth writing competition by the Village of Tokakeriby is on. Entries to the story competition should be between 1,000 to 10,000 words and inspired by Tomb Raider. The deadline for entries is June 22nd 2010.

Rules:

Quoted


It's best that writers stick to the official canon regarding Lara, which, for example, can be found at Wikipedia or Wiki Raider. There is no particular competition theme so you can write about whatever you like, and you can include any character from the Tomb Raider games, books, films or comics - you don't even have to include Lara in your story if you don't want to! However entries may lose marks if they stray too far from the Tomb Raider universe, whilst sex and swear words of a sexual nature are probably best avoided. We welcome stories not only from the more established TR writers but also from newbies. There is no age limit, but no allowance will be made for age when stories are being judged. The story can either be an original piece of work or a story published elsewhere, but please enter only one story per author. Easy peasy.

Complex Simplicity 2010

The construction phase of the Complex Simplicity custom level contest is over. Gaming has begun. From now on, you can download the "Castle" levels that have been built as part of the contest:
http://www.trlevel.de/index.php?page=ComplexSimplicity2010

The levels were made using the Next Generation Level Editor, meaning that you can expect higher resolution textures, more detailed objects, and unseen puzzles.

The gamers can then use the Competition Form to cast their votes on which level builder has created with level. Have fun playing.

Note: You don't need the level editor beforehand. Everything you'll need to play the levels can be found in the general package of the download.

We wish all participants good luck.

The rules are as follows:

THE PRIZES!

We've had some exclusive items before in previous comps, but this time the prizes are really exclusive. Crystal Dynamics' Art Director Brian Horton himself has made an original HAND DRAWN sketch, which he created especially for this forum comp. He'll be giving that original piece away to one VERY lucky fan, as well as a set of framed and signed copies to 3 additional winners.

Yes, folks, this mean that one of you is going home with the original version of a sketch made by a Tomb Raider developer. You'll own something totally unique, a one-of-a-kind in the whole wide world!

Prize #1:
- 11x14" (28x35cm) original hand drawn charcoal illustration by Brian Horton, signed and framed in a massive 16x20" frame
- Tomb Raider branded North Face Jacket (XL)

Prize #2:
- Photocopied, 5x7" framed illustration signed by Brian Horton
- Limited Edition “Day One” Print

Prize #3:
- Photocopied, 5x7" framed illustration signed by Brian Horton
- Nerd Machine “15-Year Celebration” T-shirt (XL)

Prize #4:
- Photocopied, 5x7" framed illustration signed by Brian Horton
- Nerd Machine “15-Year Celebration” Poster


How to enter
Step 1 - Make a photo or scan of your entry and directly upload the original, unedited file from your camera or scanner with this link: http://pic.driber.net/up

Step 2 - Post the generated image code in this thread. IMPORTANT! DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP!


How do I win?

There will be 4 winners in 4 different categories:

- Grand Champion: The most impressive entry as voted by an official jury. This winner gets first choice of prize.

- Forum Choice: The most impressive entry as voted by the public. This winner gets second choice of prize. If the Forum Choice winner is the same as the jury-selected Grand Champion, the second highest voted entry will be selected.

- Most Original Entry: The most creative or original entry as voted by an official jury. This winner gets third choice of prize.

- Random Draw: This winner will be chosen randomly using random.org to encourage participation by those who may not be artistically inclined. This winner gets forth choice of prize. The Random Draw winner will be chosen after all other winners are announced. If the Random Draw winner is the same as the jury-selected Grand Champion, the Forum Choice, or Most Original Entry, successive numbers will be drawn until an unselected entry is chosen.

The usual obligatory jury FYI: The official jury will consist of Eidos Forum staff members and/or Square Enix employees and/or forum members. The exact method of voting will be announced once the comp is closed for entries. The (forum) names of the jury members and their votes will be publicly available once the winners have been announced. Public voting will be available for all forum members who have reached GAMER STATUS.

The rules
- Maximum 5 entries per person/household.
- Keep your entry clean, in good taste and in accordance with our FORUM TOU.
- The deadline for submitting entries is Wednesday, 30 May 2012, 12PM CET
- We reserve the right to extend the deadline, for example if we receive a low number of entries.
- In the event of a tie, the person who posted first wins.
- Contestants can only win 1 prize; not a combination of for example 1st prize and 3rd prize.
- In cases of suspected fraud, winners are responsible for proofing ownership of their entry in order to claim their prize.
- Any entry that the forum staff deems inappropriate or not complying with the rules will not qualify and will be removed from this thread.
- Winners will be notified via PM and email. Winners must respond with their postal address within 2 weeks of being notified or else their prize may go to someone else.

Wiki Raider Update

Last week WikiRaider had been updated to a more recent version of the MediaWiki software, causing a lot of issues with styles no longer working and such. I have been helping out with getting everything back the way it was. While Jan was busy working under the hood, I recreated most of the themes to give WikiRaider its colours back. All styles are now based on the "Vector" theme, the main difference for the end user being that the search field is now at the top of the page. Alongside the return of "Egypt" and "Legend", I have now created a blue "Rise" theme like seen here on TombRaiderGirl.com, an olive "Underworld" theme I have used before and "Vector" has been adapted to be an exclusive WikiRaider theme for those who prefer less colours.

Asides from that Jan and I have been working on the content, too.

"Tomb Raider Meeting XVIII" Registration Now Open

The 18th international Tomb Raider Meeting, a yearly gathering of Tomb Raider Fans, is drawing nearer. Like in previous years location of the "Meeting" will be Bad Grund, a lovely town in the "Harz" (Lower Saxony) in Germany. The date for this event is 15th - 18th of June 2017 (Thursday till Sunday).

If you are interested in participating, please be advised that you need to register at the forums of https://rollingball.de/wbb/ to get more information on how to pay your fee. The following thread is for this year's meeting: https://rollingball.de/wbb/index.php/Thr…meinsam-Harzen/

The costs (per person) are as follows:
  • €75 for grownups (in-house accommodation)
  • €45 for children until the age of 14
  • €10 for daily visitors for the barbecue



What awaits you?
The "Tomb Raider Meeting" is a gathering for every Tomb Raider Fan, whether you like building custom levels, are a general gamer, like to talk about Classic or Reboot Lara or like exploring the outdoors.

We have a group of very dedicated level builders that will often have something to showcase, offering a look behind the scenes of the custom builder scene that is still alive 16 years in. The cinema room gives us the opportunity to bring our own gaming consoles (generally a PS4, sometimes an Xbox One or an older console) and try out any games the community has brought along. Those who feel the urge to move around a little can use the time and go hiking or join our geocaching team in their explorations of the area. Besides these activities there is also a fun Tomb Raider event organised by an event team that will either challenge your Tomb Raider knowledge or your skills in working as a team, depending on what they have planned for this years event.

How to participate
  • Pay your fee. -> Find your nickname on the participant's list a short while later
  • Be in Bad Grund on 15 June (Thursday), starting 2 PM



Hope to see you there.
