[Contest] RRRR - Just Random

Welcome friends to a new, magnificent, fabulous and most of all lethally fun round of RRRR.
This one is called Just Random, as it has no theme.

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!
If you have sticky lucky bastards, you pull one extra item for each LB you have, simple as that.

Lucky Bastard standings
Dumor3D; 2 LB
Luci45: 3 LB
Barbult: 2 LB
KaribousBoutique: 1 LB
Totte: 1 LB
zawarkal: 1 LB
azoohouse: 1 LB

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 and randomly picked your items, 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 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 May 3 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

    You choose, the simplest way if you use DIM is to select all and rightclick export as CSV then import into a shit-spread (speradsheet) program, or just use a text editor showing line numbers.

    Lomund, well that makes two stories I've read recently, that just appear to end abruptly. Captivating, and sucked me in to the last page... "O" I was looking at the RRRR thread and got distracted again, lol.

    I caught something like that in between the posts, Judging by the other site, I thought you were the DM.

    I tend to like the RPG stories better, as they don't tend to follow the Hollywood plot-line, are more open, and lively. Like the surfing elf, lol.

    Yes, I play Lomund, and all the other main characters are played by different people.
    It's one of the funnier games we play. I GM but then I don't have time to take notes, which is crucial to get all those small fun details that people does during the game session.

    Why do I pull “ Fantasy Instruments” all the time. I’ve now officially joined the Camel and Boundless Journey as “most pulled”. And backdrop deluxe, there goes the idea of making a great render…

    @Azoohouse #1 Nice one! really like the colors. creates a very spanish mood. also she had better check the contents of the chest.
    those pirates might have used up half of the merchandise on themselves. or could even have replaced ithe merchandise with a midget.
    one of those trojan horse type midgets.

    @ totte #1 that is one hot band! you really know how to set up the pyrotechnics for your gigs! well done!

    @luci45 #1 that image really pops! the trader seems not to understand the needs of his clients.
    i guess they could use the skinny jeans for a fish net! and the pumps for drinking out of. good one!
