    Default DDOCast Summer Scavenger Hunt Extravaganza!

    Presenting DDOCast’s Summer Scavenger Hunt Extravaganza! This summer participate in our scavenger hunt and you could walk away with fantastic prizes provided by Turbine & DDOCast Listeners. The goal is simple, earn points by taking pictures that satisfy a variety of tasks! Some tasks are simple - go into the DDO world and find select people or places. Other tasks involve completing a specific quest under set of condition. A few even require that you get help from the community! There are both individual competitions and a guild competition.

    There are a couple of options for submitting entries. You can post pictures in this thread or you can email them to ddocast@gmail.com. This can be individually or in bunches. Each submission MUST be accompanied by 1) your forum name, 2) your primary character name and server, 3) your guild and 4) which task the photos are applying to. All submissions must be received before U27 is released to live servers.

    Pro tips: 1) if you save the list in a word doc you can add photos into the word doc under their appropriate heading and send it as 1 or more files.
    2) if you give submissions before the deadline I will TRY to give notice of rejection of submissions. If you wait til the last minute you may not have an opportunity to resubmit

    Here is the list of tasks to complete and their point values. Please note of the specific rules for each task. ALL pictures MUST include your character name (can be different than above), which task(s) the photo is for and, if in a quest, clearly identify the quest (landmarks may not be sufficient). If you have any questions please ask in this thread.

    Exploring
    -An NPC in multiple locations - 1 point per location in town + 1 per quest, (Max 1 NPC)
    -Unique named (orange, red, purple) monsters of the same race - 1 point per named (max 1 “monster race”)
    ---You may use as many of the same race as you can find, but they must have an orange, red or purple name

    ---“monster race” is generally specific. A fire giant is a different race than a frost giant and a fire elemental is a different race than an earth elemental.
    ---subraces are generally considered the same race: a scrag is a troll and a chaos beholder is a beholder
    ---Dragons are special, it is dungeons and dragons after all, all dragons are considered the same race.
    ---rule of thumb: if it is more or less the same avatar, it is probably the same “monster race” (but not always)
    -Waterfalls - 1 point per pic
    ---Waterfalls are defined as being at least nearly vertical
    -Sitting on a Throne - 1 point per throne (max 1 throne per quest)
    ---If you find a throne you cannot sit on, instead kneel in front of it
    -Raid Boss outside a raid - 1 point per boss (max 1 per boss)
    ---Raid bosses are actual bosses of raids, not just a purple name
    -A Damsel in Distress - 2 points
    -An NPC named after a Turbine Employee - 3 points
    -A memorial to a real life person/event - 1 point per memorial
    -An aerial view of the marketplace - 2 points

    Being sociable
    -A picture of soulstones- 1 point per soul stone (max 1 pic)
    -A picture of players in Dragon Armor - 1 point per color + 1 point per matching helm worn by the same player (max 1 pic)
    -A full 12 person party of all different class symbols - 3 points (max 1 party)
    ---bonus points: complete a level appropriate raid with such a party - 3 points (a raid the party would normally be eligible for a bravery streak - quest XP panel required showing quest level and highest player level)
    -A full 12 person party of all the same class symbol - 3 points (max 1 party)
    ---bonus points: complete a level appropriate raid with such a party - 3 points (a raid the party would normally be eligible for a bravery streak - quest XP panel required showing quest level and highest player level)

    -A Dance Party - 1 point per participant (max 1 pic)
    -Guild Photo - 2 points (max 1 pic)
    ---Whole guild present is not required. Guild social panel must be included to show a "good participation" of the guild
    -A character collecting 50,000 Guild renown - 3 points per 50,000
    ---must include a before and after picture each showing renown earned on that character
    ---both pictures MUST include “DDOCast Summer Scavenger Extravaganza” in a chat text box

    Challenging Tasks (can be in a group or solo and on any life you happen to be on)

    updated to clarify that for unique monsters you can use as many unique names of a single monster race as you can find. that can be any combination of orange, red and purple names (like 15 orange, 5 red and 1 purple) but each unique monster must be at least an orange name or better - no common monsters

    also, raid bosses must be found outside all raids, including raids where they have a less than active participation

    Can you post a submission then update later for more points? Like if I submit for a certain amount in one category then later do better can i submit again?

    Also... is multiboxing allowed? Like I doubt person will get more chances since it tied to forum account, but if u had say 3 toons for the dance/pool challenge would it add to the total number of points you get? Cause so far we had 18 toons (3 were from one person. 2 from another, 1 from everyone else afaik).

    And can you put in everyone for the entries? Like same screenies but have it count towards everyone involved?

    Yes you can update a submission. If you are building up to a larger submission you can do it easily enough before hand too.

    There are no rules against multiboxing since there isn't really a way for me to check it. also, I figure creating dummy accounts and toons is punishment enough considering how few places that is going to be much benefit.

    Everyone needs to do their own submission, and one of the requirements is character name. Having said that, I'm fine with say 1 post of a picture crediting multiple players to ease my own bookkeeping, however that post would need to satisfy all the requirements and identify forum accounts linked to primary character, photographed character and guild etc.

    Cool.
