I've been asked some good questions that I feel should have their answers displayed publicly to prevent confusion. Here are some that I've been asked so far:
Q) Gleam.io won't let me sign up, saying my e-mail is in use.
A) I've run into this issue while testing the contest. Do not create a Gleam.io account; this is unnecessary. Doing so will not allow you to use your associated e-mail address to enter the contest. Using a different e-mail address will fix this.
Q) Why do you need so much information from us?
A) We need this so we can guarantee the correct winners get the Legendary Weapons. The last time I ran a contest someone made an account (on Reddit) that was very similar to the actual winner's name and he was given the prize by mistake. It took me a rather long time to re-create that legendary item and give it to the actual winner. This contest is significantly larger in scope, so I want to avoid any of those issues.
Iceberg! No, wait...
“Ah, isn’t the summer air great, Sprinkle?” Kit said. Sprinkle trailed behind Kit, just barely keeping pace. The high noon sun bared down upon him, threatening to overheat the yak. He snorts in response and shakes his head left to right. Kit smiled at him and said, “Don’t worry big guy, we’re almost there! And it should be empty since I doubt anyone comes to Sparkfly Fen just to take a dip.”
As Kit finished she overheard a ruckus from not too far ahead. She doubled her pace to see what the commotion was; to a much disgruntled Sprinkle, who let out an exasperated groan and hurried to keep up. Kit stopped in her tracks when she saw where the noise was coming from. “Well, there’s something you don’t see every day.” She said.
On the beach was a group of quaggans having a barbeque, complete with a grill. The one grilling even had a little apron on with the words “kiss the quaggan” written on it. Tiny quaggan children played in the water and another group played music using some drums while others danced. Upon seeing Kit and Sprinkle the grill master waved them over, inviting them to join in on the fun. Kit raced to join them while Sprinkle rushed past her and jumped straight into the water. The shockwave from Sprinkle’s massive bulk sent a large wave outward which caught the children in its drift. “Weee!” they shouted and giggled. They immediately began to pester Sprinkle, begging him to do it again.
Meanwhile, the grill master offered Kit a grilled fish. “Would you like some of Quaggan’s specially-cooked fish?” he asked, presenting a speared fish to Kit. She gratefully took the fish from him and thanked him. “Coo! There’s plenty more where that came from if you want.” he offered.
Before Kit could take a bite, however, she was interrupted by another rather strange site. “Stroke! Stroke! Stroke! Stroke!” A small group of skritt were rowing a boat up the river just off the beach. One skritt was faced backward while rowing, a second was lounging behind it apparently sleeping, and a third (the leader, it would seem) was sitting in front shouting “Stroke!” over and over. In the middle of the boat sat a box filled with gold and gems. The music stopped and everyone stared at the peculiar site, just watching them row by.
Everyone was so pre-occupied staring at them that nobody mentioned the large rock jutting out of the water. The skritt were heading straight toward it! “Hey, watch out!” Kit shouted, but it was too late. The boat crashed into the rock and threw the three skritt overboard along with their box of shinies. The boat splintered and ripped in half, then lazily sunk into the water. “Ah! Help! Can’t swim!” one of the skritt shouted as they flailed and splashed about in the water.
Kit sighed and walked into the water, then merely helped them to their feet. The boat had crashed into a rock a dozen feet from the coast, so the water was about three feet deep. “Agh! Ship sank! What are we gonna do now?” the lead skritt said desperately. “Can’t carry this. Too heavy!”
Kit, feeling rather bad for the poor skritt, offered to help. “I can help you rebuild your little boat.”
“Ship.” the skritt corrected.
“Uh, yeah. That.” Kit said.
“Quaggan will help too!” the grill master shouted, a small plume of black smoke rose behind him. The rest of the quaggan offered their support shortly after and began gathering the pieces of shipwreck from the water.
Adventurers! Kit needs your help to get a small band of skritt back on their merry way after they crashed their boat—I mean, their ship. Send in 5 planks wood to Kit the Traveler or Pixie.5940.
