Love the concept for this one! Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Here’s my first pull:

375 Reflect Me
379 English Saddle
489 Ethnicity for Genesis - Native American
589 Tori for V5
131 Moroccan Dreams M4
357 DVDs and Stand
216 Lune Portail
187 Tiki Island

I had to redraw three items because my initial draw included:
576 V4 Bodysuit Unimesh Fits (can’t use this as I don’t own the bodysuit itself)
423 Install Manager Mac (doubly useless, as it’s not render-able and I don’t have a Mac)
379 English Saddle (drew this twice)

No clear ideas for what to do with them yet, but it seems like an interesting, eclectic mix…

It’s a shame we all can’t render one together lol- we’d have a room setup.

Scott-L   DVD’s and Stand
Tarina- Accent Tables
Jindi- Deco Bed 1 (that’s the same one I drew- where Morgan is standing in front of it in the jellyfish scene. It lights beautifully btw)
Novica- Bookcase Collection

EDIT: And Jaderail would have to take care of the outside with his Lisa stuff. Luci45 can join us indoors with the bathroom stuff!

OK so I have a newly organised and stabilised product list to pull from (and haven’t bought anything for nearly 24 hours).
My first pull is:

1383 = Conservatory
180 = Royal Carriages for Millennium Horse
852 = GIS Project
1414 = The Study Expansion Pack
587 = Alruna
165 = Merman
1429 = Tarnished and Polished Shaders
1118 = Forever Fantasy Poses

Quite a reasonable assortment actually, but oh yes that annoying Merman is back yet again (I think he’s been pulled in every RRRR I’ve taken part in)

Haven’t tried one of these in a while.  A mixture of fantasy and not-so-fantasy here.  I think I used the Garden Escape Well in a previous RRR.

1258 Fairytale Prince for M4 and H4
319 Dragon’s Tower
49 Genesis 2 Male Body Morphs
385 Parkside Tube Station
767 Garden Escape Well
701 Iolanthe Dress
104 Real Light HDR Gels - Bulbs
648 Starship crew for MOS Invasion

This could be very interesting…now to pick which direction to go. 

642 Ron’s Artistic Edges
819 Udane Hair

30 3DC the Streets 5 (free dumpster from ShareCG)
200 DM Talca
168 Dauntless
841 Victoria 4 Equestrian
666 Sampan

Now I just need to figure out if I am going silly, serious, or something in between…

Oh, yeah, I’m in!

And here’s my first pull:
1836 - Tales of Adventure for Stephanie Petite
857 - Happy Camper for V4
1386 - Nuit Blanches
295 - Chiko Hair
502 - Dragon Hoard and Sacrificial Altar
335 - Complex Global Lighting Pack 1 (Guess I’m doing this one in DS!)
848 - Hall of Lore-Naz
442 - Decorated Rooms

An interesting mix.  It would be even more interesting if I could remember when (and why!) I picked up all this stuff in the first place!

How this round is played
You pull eight items, yes, you heard me, eight items. But the usage of these items are a little special, as you are now supposed to create a story with three images and a story to go with them. You have to use every pulled item at least once, in any of the three images, and you have to use at least two pulled items in any single image. I say it again, Every items has to be used, no less than two items in any of the three images.

Popped in to check that I have this one right, 8 pulls, got it, three renders, cool with that. This is were I need to be sure, we must use 2 of the pulled items in each render not the SAME 2 but any 2 of the 8? Correct? As long as all 8 get used. Just checking as I set up scenes.

Looks like we got a great set of people in here already. Cool. Luck to all.

...so you can use the same item in more than one scene as well, correct?

This is going to be tough as I’m one who is not as prolific with rendering as others here.  Good we have into January for this one.

Any mix of pulled items in any of the three images but all items has to be used at least once, and at least two in every render.
Clear enough?

That part I am good on. Now for the other considerations which have to be determined NOW-

The judging and the labeling.
If it takes 3 renders to make a story:

Do we come up with one title for the story (as that’s what a story is, for example a book has one title) and just label it (title #1 for first render, title #2 for the second, and Title #3- then for voting, only the one title would be provided? In other words, we are not voting on each render, we are voting on ONE STORY- right?

Example, if my story is entitled “Black Friday” my renders would be Black Friday #1, Black Friday #2, and Black Friday #3, but in the voting thread it would just be “Black Friday by Novica”

In other words, it’s the overall story, not just each render?

also adding to the above question…

will we place all 3 images into the same submission box so they are all together
and this time will we also include the story with the three images along with the usual title and id tag (edit - I mean in the actual contest submission thread not the comments thread)
