Yes, you heard right!  The theme for this November’s Freepository Challenge is


(drum roll, please…)


(Ahem, the drum roll, if you please, Bob!)


(Where’s the dr—Boom!!!)shut eye  Not the drum I meant!
gulp

It is THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME!
Please pardon Bob.  He got a cannon for his birthday….

The rules are, as usual, Right Here.

Of course, remember that all regular DAZ figures are no-count, either for your freebies or paid lists.  Bought morphs count as purchases.

This Month’s Rules:

The image must depict the Most Dangerous Game.  Is it a game you play, like Wizard’s Chess, or a game you hunt, like Megalodon sharks?  Or is it matrimony, politics, war, or all three?  Show us The Game and what makes it Dangerous.  (Remember that all danger must be depicted within the TOS.)

Stills from the 1932 Fay Wray movie of the same name do not count as renders.  Using them as textures is allowed (if properly cited), but they don’t count as either “game” or “dangerous” as movie stills.

The renders need not be related at all to Richard Connell’s Short Story that inspired the contest name.

NAEs are always welcome.

Renders in any free renderer should be fine, as well as in DAZ, Poser, Bryce, or Lux, as long as you provide the link. Renderers do not count toward your freebie count.

The Prizes:

The usual DAZ gift certificates for the winners are still on the table.

Music2u4u is providing another splendid prize:  an old country house (or hunting lodge) with a dungeon in the basement, to be presented to all winners and HMs of the contest.

Jaderail has offered prizes.
...

Further details will follow as they come in.

The Hosts:
Myself,  Eustace Scrubb.  No co-hosts at this time.

The Judges:

1) Music2u4u

2) Kismet2012

3) Robkelk

4) DollyGirl (tiebreaker vote)

Now is the time when I would fire the starting g-u-n, but I don’t want to give Bob any more ideas.

I offered up this as a prize for the mini contest last month that was never won. So, I will give a copy of it to each of the three winners and two HMs. It is an old country house with a full dungeon basement with workable cell door. It is in Poser/Daz (.pp2) format. You can hide the front wall to the basement for renders. I would say THIS is a most dangerous game! May be more donations later.

All right!  We have a prize and one judge lined up.  Thank you, Music!  Now to get to work on a banner.

Still taking applications for the bench (judges) or the broomcloset (prizes awarded).

Very amusing intro, Eustace, and a VERY intriguing theme.

I’ll be Bach, as Arnie says in Angry Video Game Nerd.

MUSIC, if the concrete block wall is all closed in, how do people get up to the house?

Oh, it’s a BASEMENT! I see. So are you throwing in the dirt, as the mourner said to the gravedigger?

Refresh my memory, please - this isn’t directly addressed in the rules, I recall a ruling was made, but I don’t recall what the ruling was.

If one can download items for free only after paying to access the site that has those items (for example, the freebies listed in the Platinum Club “Members Only” forum, or the items at Poser World), do they count as freebies, no-counts, or paid items?

Normal monthly Daz freebies count, but PC ones don’t as you do have to be a member of the PC to get them for free.  I would say they would count a paid for items, because non PC members pay a direct price and PC members pay a sub.

Same goes for any site where you have to pay to enter the site to access freebies.

Sounds like a fun month Eustace, I will hang back as always, but if you don’t get any more judges I’ll judge for you.

There are no DAZ “freebies” anymore.  PC Members get the items free, everyone else must purchase something to get the free item.
