*closed* RRRR Freak Accidents contest

RRRR (Random Runtime Roulette Renders) Freak Accidents is here!

Who can play?

Anyone can play!

How do you prepare yourself for play?
The rules are very simple, but first you need to have all your items in some kind of order in a text file, dumped from the itemized history into a text file or a spread sheet. Remove things like software, gift certs, and special plugins from the list.
Then you use a randomizer to randomly pick 4 items from your list (your Runtime/My Library). You can use items from any store.

Lucky Bastard Rule!
Anyone who won a prize last RRRR, the RRRR Classic, needs to pull one extra item just for being a lucky bastard, for every win.

Randomizer that works well:random.org
Randomizer where you get all numbers in one draw:All at once

There are some situations where you allowed to redraw, these are:

- You picked something that doesn’t work, broken thing, only works in a version / software not used etc etc.
- You picked a software or add-on to a software or anything you should have filtered out from the list.

- You picked only huge environment props and will not be able to render a scene without crashing.

- You picked an item you already have been using in two RRRR renders in this content and that was picked randomly. Three is a curse - rule!

Bundles


If you pull a bundle, use two three complete items from it, or more if you like, but you do not need to use all, but only picking a hairpin from V4 Complete Bundle is “too little”. Clarification: A bundle still counts as only one pulled item.

The rules of madness!
Now you have successfully picked 4 items plus maybe a few lucky bastard ones, make a scene, you can add other items as well but the one you picked should be prominent or cleverly used. Render it, post it and make us all laugh! Remember though that the renders must follow the TOS of the forum. The theme of this contest is Freak Accidents, all thanks to Karibou’s exploding toilet and that I did survive my 50s birthday party.

The contest categories!
There are two categories, Funniest and Best, you get it. A fun render might maybe not be a super great render but will cause the viewer to fall of the chair laughing.

Contest duration!
It stats now, and will go on until Sunday August 10 23:59:29 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

This months sponsors so far:


FlipMode is sponsoring with one item, not bundle, from his store, visit his store.
Totte is sponsoring with a Poser 10 for Windows or Mac OS X.
KaribousBoutique has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Barbult has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Skiriki has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
BlumBlumShub has put in $20 in DAZ GCs

Jaderail has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
As most of you know, Jaderail has left us. He was one of the biggest fans of the RRRR and he has sponsored almost every contest.
DAZ has promised to take care of his sponsorship this round.

ART Collaborations has offered one pack for each winner, bundles included, visit their store

I hope we can attract some more sponsors.
Sponsors may of course participate in the contest, their own decision. As Ken OBannion so elegantly put it, sponsors play for keeps.

If you want to sponsor this RRRR, send me a PM or post in the thread!

More to know?

I will might edit this when new info on sponsors arrive.

Maximum number of entries?
Yes, this time we limit the number of entries per person to seven, seven the number should be.

Are you ready to render in 3….2….1…..go!

Entries!
Post your entries here together with your pull and your comments, and feel free to comment on other peoples work as well.
We post images in the Entries only thread with tag and name.

    Ugh -- been immersed in PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and Javascript for the last week. (Personal project which I'm now beating my head against the inside of my padded cell over.) Anyway, I'm up for a good freak accident or two!

    I think the "lucky bastard, for every win" bit means I have to pull 2 LBs because I placed twice last month. And if I didn't have to, meh, it's more of a challenge!

    First pull:
    4965 Noggins Goose (noggin), DAZ
    1234 Claustrum (Jack Tomalin), DAZ
    5105 Oskarsson's WoodNymph (Oskarsson), RR
    6040 Sabby-Debra for V4 and Genesis ( Sabby, Seven) RR
    4062 LnL Ultimate Horses 2 (Lisa's Botanicals, LaurieS), DAZ
    1477 Cynagtala for V4 (Pixeluna , Shadownet, Ghostman), DNA

    Wow. Well. I DID ask for a challenge...

    Oh, and put me down for another $20GC in the prize pool. I spent last month's (play for keeps) $20 on replacement toilet parts!

    EDIT: Just had to post the collage for this one. (I make these when I'm trying to remember everything I pulled.) This one is... entertaining.

    Been a little ill so I'm not rushing right off to render this but I did get a new Database built, my content seems to be growing faster than my skills. Went over and got me some pulls and this was the first time in a very long time the RRRR just jumped up and bit me in a long time.

    1009: Pure Hair: Space for Genesis
    2026: Towel Set for Genesis
    1867: Master Bathroom Fixtures Poses DS
    1151: AMS RT05

    If all that does not say Freak Accident to you your just not right in your purdy lil' head.

    The Mysterious Cosmic Goop Ball
    tag: luci45#1
    Science was unable to explain the formation of the cosmic goop ball that fell from the sky unto the Dingdong Hotel in Friendstown, Indiana. Bast and her consort Rhodie had been expecting it, however. They relocated to the small Indiana town a week prior to the incident, and came prepared to sell goop ball souvenirs to the tourists.

    Another RRRR - excellent! So here's my Pull #1:

    2084 = Short Order Cook for Genesis
    368 = Misty Veil Hair
    2102 = Witch Hunter for V4
    1575 = Bat - Silverkey3d

    Hmm, nice weird start I suppose.

    ETA: And I see that I'm quite late to the party, entries posted already ...
    @emsim "Surprise in the Tower" - nice feeling of falling there, and I like the way you (or your dragon) broke the window too.
    @Luci45 "Mysterious Cosmic Goop Ball" - great start, nice work combining that odd combination of ancient and modern - I love the way the townsfolk are amazed by the goop ball but apparently completely unconcerned about the humanoid/cat-people in their midst!

    Thank you MelanieL. :-) I wish I could claim the hole in the window but it actually came with the texture set. It worked out well for what I wanted to do though.

    @ Luci45 - I love the detail in your picture and the POV. There's always someone ready to make a profit from an accident. :lol:

    Oh, goody! Another RRRR! (And I could really use the diversion, what with all the insanity going on around me, here in the unreal world!)

    First pull:
    71 - Madeline for Stephanie 6
    1718 - Greater House of Healing
    1951 - Legelfin's Closet
    *** 2222 - aniMate Walk Construction Kit -- Calling for a re-draw on this one

    Hmm, does the pull itself count as a 'freak accident'?

    1524 Modern Furniture 2
    1447 A2Z for Victoria 2
    412 Ex Libris Poses for Genesis
    181 2003 EU Roadster

    A2Z for Victoria 2 shows in my account, but no longer is searchable in the DAZ store. I hope I still have it installed! Instead of a WIP, I've attached a collection of promotional images for the items. I think this collection will be a lot of fun to play with.

    EDIT - I do have A2Z still installed. Now I better review the rules for products that come as collections.
