[CONTEST] RRRR - Things you have to do before you die *Tons of prizes*

Ladies, gentlemen and render bots the next RRRR is ready!

RRRR - Things you have to do before you die!

As you see, this RRRR is themed, but with a very wide theme, Things you have to do before you die. I can just begin to imagine what Luci, barbult and Ken can do with this.


For all who have no clue what the RRRR is, it stands for “Random Runtime Roulette Renders”.


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 (place 1-3) last RRRR, the RRRR Back to Renders needs to pull one extra item for each placement just for being a lucky bastard.

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 any Lucky bastard pulls), 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 and the theme of the contest.

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 November 9 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!
This months sponsors so far:
Totte is sponsoring with a $25 DAZ GC.

Dumor3d is sponsoring with one item to the winner in each category, come visit their store!
ART Collaborations is sponsoring with one item to the winner in each category, including bundles plus a $15 DAZ GC each to the winners in each category. Come visit their store!

I hope we can attract some more sponsors.
Sponsors may of course participate in the contest, their own decision. As Ken O Bannion 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 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, as this thread is later used for voting. An update to the entries only post, we can now also post a little story, up to maximum 10 lines, as that would make some renders in the funniest easier to vote at.

    Oooooh, already a new RRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea! :cheese: :-) :lol: ;-)

    I love the theme, but got an awful first pull for it:

    The Neighbour's Yard
    Ron's Apocalypse
    Render Sphere for DAZ Studio
    Parkside Point Interior
    Gallerie Bastion Spacious Interior

    Hi, Dumor3D! Good to see you here and sponsoring too! I'm sure you will fit in with this crowd. ;-P

    First! Unless I take too long to post this, anyway. :P I'm going for all 7 this month.

    A Night at the Fang

    The Dusty Fang is the destination that any visitor to the Underworld city of C'roan adds to their bucket list. The owner and brewer, known only as Fang, has perfected his recipes over the course of several centuries. Fang is said to be at least three hundred years old, but Fang never tells... Any creature of the Underworld is welcome, as long as they cause no trouble and can order in one of the thirty-nine languages Fang knows. For those who survive the experience, a night at The Dusty Fang turns into a story told to grandchildren.

    Capable for Hooded Cloak Pack
    Vladimir
    Aslan Court 3
    The Tavern

    Countless other things. :) I didn't keep a list this time, but if you don't recognize something, please ask.

    Nice opening image, Kaz. Very creative.

    This looks like it'll be a fun round. I'll hopefully be ready to make my first pull in a few days. Right now I've got runtime maintenance to do. I'd thought, when I won the mini-contest (for which I will be taking a lucky bastard pull for, I think it's only fair) that the only challenge ahead would be learning the ins and outs of Poser. Not so. Lot of content added to the mix that I need to sort through now. Nice problem to have, though. :) (I've got a Gillman now! Why didn't anybody tell me Poser came with a Gillman?)

    Totte, throw a $20 DAZ GC into the prize pool from me.

    I like the theme this month! And, since I'm currently bed-bound with major back issues, I'll have lots of time to render! (My monitor sits on a hospital table in front of my bed because those same back issues make a regular desk impossible for any length of time.) Thank goodness I have RRRR fun to keep me occupied. There's only so much bad television one can watch every day...

    Pull#1 (Woo-hoo!! No LBs this month!!)
    7431 SV7 Nanashi (Seven, Sabby), RR
    915 Branwen Hair for V4 (Valea), DAZ
    8817 WRIs Pose Collection - Up Close (WhiteRavenImages), RR
    5038 MRI Machine (Valandar), DAZ

    LOL!!! What are the odds that I'd pull an MRI Machine?!! (I'm having one tomorrow!) So much for taking my mind off the back problems...!

    This is why I love RRRR -- I have ALLLLL those fantastic, ridiculous freebies from Valandar which pop up in my pulls. Because, let's face it, when else would I ever render an MRI machine? I didn't even know I HAD an MRI Machine!

    Lol, I had plans to use it in a render, but dirtied and damaged, to pose as the "Genusator", then machine that is used in the future to punish non gender neutral behaviors. It's for a post apocalyptic adventure, and this is a "look back into the history that could be a possible future for us".

    Where do you come up with such magnificent ideas?! I wish I had your creative energy! Your "Adventures of Lomund" already astounds me. I've never tried rendering a narrative/story -- I have commitment issues, lol. I'd get two images done and get distracted. (The Karibou Who Stole Christmas was the longest series of renders I've ever done!)

And they're sneaky about it. too -- you don't notice your gray matter being siphoned away until you look back at your brain BEFORE children. Post-apocalyptic MRI ideas were displaced by potty-training techniques, or 5th-grade division, or episodes of the Teletubbies...

    Teletubbies, haha, that's how those who's been treated with Genus-therapy will act and look like. And those who lived back then (seen from the future), was scared of GEPO, the GenusPolice, who wore long black leather coats...

    I'm very glad that the one I was in today didn't look like that!! Very cool grunge textures, btw -- definitely post-apocalyptic. Apparently I need to think outside my box more often! (Not hard to think outside the MRI machine, though -- it's tiny in there!! It felt MUCH smaller inside that machine today than it looks in the render.)

    Random factoid... My fiance (an electrical engineer who works for GE Medical) tells me that if you put an aluminum object inside the bore with the magnet running, the aluminum will "defy gravity." (Google it -- very cool to see!) If you move any metal through a magnetic field, a current is induced. And so, the object (with current running through it) generates its OWN electromagnetic field, essentially creating another magnet. He informs me that if you have an aluminum wrench inside of an MRI bore, you have to move it slowly because fast motion increases the strength of the field and makes it difficult or impossible to move!

    It's also amusing (and scary!) to see what happens when iron objects are put in the magnetic field... Makes you understand why they ask if you've ever had metal particles in your eye. (eeeek!)

    Okay. Must stop talking about the MRI and start rendering it instead. Outside the box. Outside the box...
