Welcome to the November 2012 Freebie Challenge!
This month’s theme is “Lest We Forget.” In the Commonwealth nations and the USA, November is a time to remember the people who have taken up arms for us so that we can live our lives in peace and safety. They aren’t the only ones who have given of themselves to make our world a better place, though - ask the people who work minimum-wage jobs because it’s the only way to help the homeless, or the rescue workers who go into dangerous places just in case somebody might still be trapped there, or the children who see their parents troubled and try to make them happy, or ...
I think it’s appropriate to take some time, and remember these people and what they’ve given us and given up for us.
The rules are in the usual place, except that I request at least 8 free items this month, not 10.
Dollygirl has donated a set of DAZ4.5 and Poser presets for Mongoloid’s Nitro Pony set - fits and material settings for the Mil Horse, and pz2 files for the Poser horse. Also, music2u4u has donated “a memorial for our fallen.” Everyone who enters will receive these gifts.
BWSman has promised some textures for EvilInnocence’s April Dress, and Chohole has promised some textures (probably for Mamota’s MMShirtOnePsetForV4A4). Everyone who wins or gets an Honourable Mention will receive these texture sets.
Jaderail has donated some gift certificates: The third-place winner will receive a $10 gift certificate, the second-place winner will receive a $15 gift certificate, and the first-place winner will receive a $20 gift certificate.
Mavelle has promised some furniture models - their loungesuite and computer table. The third-place winner will receive these models in addition to the gift certificate.
The second-place winner will receive Carter’s Old Time General Store, a creation of (and donation from) Music2u4u in addition to the gift certificate.
I mentioned in last month’s thread that I couldn’t tell you what else the first-place winner will receive in addition to the gift certificate - this is because you’ll have to choose it yourself. Mr. Sparky has donated one of his bundles as a gift to this lucky person.
The People Behind the Scenes
Your host for this month’s Challenge is Rob Kelk, one of the forum’s more prolific freebie-list compilers.
This month’s judges are Dollygirl, music2u4u, and assassin_21. (A small gift for the judges has been donated by “Star Ranger4,” an acquaintance of mine on another forum altogether. If you want to know what this OBJ is, you’ll have to judge the Challenge.)
And… The Bonus Game
The Bonus Game was “Set the Table” - congratulations to Lord Ganthor for his winning entry!
Editing this post on November 6 to add the monthly banner, now that we have a couple of entries that fit the theme but not the banner…
