Mojang's Scrolls Design Competition #1
Good day Scrolldiers,
On this glorious Thursday afternoon we are pleased to share something that has been in the planning between both Mojang and Scrollsguide for quite some time now. Something that is sure to get your juices flowing.
*Insert obligatory drum roll here*
For the first time in the history of this glorious game, Mojang - the people who make Scrolls - wants you, the handsome/beautiful (delete where applicable) Scrolls player to design a scroll, a scroll that if judged to be good enough will be added to the game.
Yes that is right, you have the chance of having a scroll that you designed added into the game!
Read on for the full details.
Mojangâ€™s next set of Scrolls will have the theme 'Rebellion'.
On the fringes of the Empire, a revolt is brewing. The Rebellion set pits Growth, Decay and Energy forces against the armies of Order.
We need you to create a selection of Spells and/or Enchantments to bolster your favourite Faction, and the ones you donâ€™t favor.
Use whatever tools you can find to stand out with your creation. You can use the Scroll Designer to give your ideas their final shape, but this is optional. Ultimately, you have to come up with viable in-game ideas or new mechanics that could really spice up your playing. Use your Scrolls, or other gaming, experience to think of the missing scrolls that the game needs.
Everyone who owns a copy of the game is eligible to submit entries! Make sure you've filled out your in-game name on your Scrollsguide profile though, so we'll know who to reward.
You can submit a maximum of three scrolls for every resource, bringing the total number to 12. Again, only Spells and Enchantments will be judged. Write down your ideas or use the Scroll Designer to upload images for your entries.
Judging will be done by a number of people from the Scrolls community. They will pick 12 favorites out of all the submissions, three scrolls for every resource. Those winning scrolls are then sent off to Mojang for their final judging, to eventually decide on four definite winners, one for each resource.
The success of entries will be based on viability of the scrollsâ€™ mechanics in-game, as well as interesting lore and new concepts. The artwork on the scroll isn't all that important for the end result, although we wouldn't mind seeing some great drawings of yours!
The prizes are what you're all here for, obviously!
The four winners will have their scroll implemented in-game in a future version*
Finalists (including winners) will receive a special avatar head, much like the winners of the ESL cup got.
This competition will start today, Friday 25th October and will run until 10 November 6PM GMT You'll have more than two weeks to come up with amazing ideas. After that, the judges will take five days to go over all the entries and pick 12 finalists. Mojang will then announce the final four winners by Wednesday 20 November.
So with all that it is now down to you, post your entries below by 6PM GMT on the 10th of November and you will be in with a chance of having your own scroll added into the game
We wish you all the luck in the world and look forward to judging your entries.
Mojang + SG
P.S. Please note that we wish this thread to be only used for entries into the competition therefore any posts that are not used as an entry into the competition will be moved. If you wish to discuss or comment on the competition then please do so on the Design Competition Thread. Also if you could keep your entries to a single post then that would be greatly appreciated (i.e. post all your entries in one post and not in separate posts), thank you.
