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)

I think that is an EXCELLENT idea- when you say submission box, you mean one post, right? That would be the best way to do it so the renders/story aren’t scattered about.

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.


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?

So…, if I use one of my items in only one render (because how often can you use that Complex Lighting thing - okay, bad example; I should have pointed the finger at Decorated Rooms and Nuits Blanches), then this would be cool?

One more question: Is the rule that the story has to be told in EXACTLY three images?

You maybe Very generous Ken (TY,TY verry much (Read that with a Elvis voice)) but you ask far too many good questions. NOW I need to know that one too. As a Semi Comic book geek the Jader needs info please. Oh yea, so does Ken…

The name is for all three, the story is for all thre, and you post them as all three (you can have more than three images for the same story but the minimum requirement is three and you won’t get any bonuses for more than three)  in one post in the finished thread together. You can post them here one by one and built your finished post.

One day in Ivana Stroganovas life
A saturday evening, that was supposed to be like every other saturday evenings, Ivana Stroganova was nursing her prize Hibiscus when her son Yuri, came rushing into the kitchen. He was yelling that a big bird had taken his starman, his favorite toy that he got for his tenth birthday last week. At first, Ivana just thought he was telling a childish lie, but after a while she realized that he was probably telling the truth.

Thanks, I really tried to get it looking good, but I had to remove the glasses in the cupboard as they rendered grey even at tracelevel 8 (didnt have time for a 12+ tracelevel render, not with that much transmaps in the flower).

One day in Ivana Stroganovas life - part two

Ivana being a good mother, decided to take her son downtown the next day to buy him a new Starman. They took the bus and when in town they went to the cash machine to get some cash. Ivana wanted to give to Yuri cash and let him go to the toy store himself. At the cash machine someone had put a note saying:

Dear Customer, we are performing a security operation on this cash machine for your own protection. To prevent your card from expiring, please write down your card number and pin code here and leave the card in the bin to the right. Best regards, Dr. Phi-Shing Scamalot, Bank Security of Nigeria.

She saw a man being threatened by a gun and assumed he hadn’t complied with the written instruction by from the Bank Security of Nigeria. Nigeria? Isn’t that in Africa? Strange country to outsource the Bank security to Ivana thought, then se realized she forgot to take out the money. Oh well, it will be a long walk home.

Thanks, I like details (when possible), make everything much more living, I’m not much for pinups against white background.

Ah, so Totte has drawn first blood!  Nice work!

So, here’s the first installment in my first entry….

Ken OBanion - 05 December 2013 10:05 PM

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!

Story Title: With Friends Like These…
TAG: obanion#01
—Image 1—
Image Title: Let’s Call It Kismet (Because You Just KNOW Some Idiot Who Fancies Himself a Poet Is Going To!)

Alexis and Martin were old friends; in fact, their friendship went all the way back to middle school.  Their friendship had endured through the years because they had a lot in common - not least of which was an unquenchable thirst for adventure.  And they had kept in touch regularly, meeting occasionally for lunch or dinner or, if pressed for time, a quick drink and catch-up.

On one such occasion, they met at a speakeasy on the Lower East Side, where Martin told Alexis a little bit about his current “project”.  (And yes, he even included the ‘air-quotes’.)  And he invited Alexis to join him, “and all your travel expenses will be on me.”

How could she say no?  Indeed, why would she even want to?  She had always been wildly curious about just what, exactly, her friend did for a living.  Martin often referred to himself as a ‘repo-man’, and until that evening, it had never occurred to her to inquire just what it was that he ‘repo-ed’.

She should have been more curious.  Because she was soon to find out….

Items from pull used in this image:
Nuits Blanches (texture set for The Dress)

A bit of filler, because…, well, you know.

Martin was what some would call a ‘soldier of fortune’.  Except, in his case, he dealt with actual fortunes: valuable artifacts that, for whatever reason, were taken from their rightful owners, and whose owners, quite understandably, wanted to get them back.  And that’s where Martin came in.

People hired him to locate and retrieve these valuable artifacts; hence his description of himself as a ‘repo-man’.  His job was to ‘repossess’ those items, and bring them home.  And he was very, very good at his job.

His current assignment, however, was to recover a person, not an artifact: the King of a land called Novaria, who had disappeared many years ago, under highly mysterious circumstances, and had not been seen or heard from since.  It had long been assumed by the people of Novaria that their sovereign was dead; even the Queen believed this.  But she wanted proof.

The Queen’s oldest daughter, Keira, had volunteered to accompany Martin on his mission, and he had agreed.  He felt that she would be useful in negotiating the unfamiliar ways and customs of her family’s realm.

Also, he had heard that she was downright formidable in a fight; a skill-set that could definitely be useful.

Image Title: This Was Not Mentioned in the Briefing

They entered the cave cautiously, with Keira leading the way, sword in hand.  ‘Sword?’ Alexis thought.  Just what had she gotten herself into?

Suddenly Keira stopped and turned around.  “Did you hear that?” she asked.  “What was that sound?”

As Martin’s flashlight beam pierced the darkness, Alexis stifled a scream. “Never mind the sound,” she exclaimed, “What the hell is THAT!?

Keira gave both Martin and Alexis a sheepish look.  “Um, yeah, about that,” she confessed.  “I probably should have mentioned the dragon, shouldn’t I have?”

“Gee, ya THINK!?
