    Greetings Novians!

    Some unscrupulous fella has been flooding all of New Britannia with junk: Headdresses, Wings, Backpacks, assorted miscellany of every sort. It's time to clean this trash up and so a bounty has been placed on all gear crafted by Coswald Dirthmire that is turned in each contest period!

    • The current R91 Contest Period runs from now until Tuesday, July 27th

    Contest periods fall somewhere roughly within each release period, and entries can be placed in a container with you name on it, and submitted one of two ways:
    • Mailing items (in a named bag or container) to Coswald Dirthmire
    • Dropping a named container in the barrels outside the crafting pavilion in Arlia's Shoppes district (directions below)

    Once you've dropped a bag in the barrel you'll still be able to add to it any time during the competition, or feel free to submit multiple bags via mail throughout the contest period. To make the bag requirement a bit easier 1,000 backpacks have been crafted and sold into the loot table, and more are being introduced every contest period.

    Every release a new special item will be added, worth 5 points to your total if submitted in the same period it was first seen:
    • R89: Perennial Coast Peasant Slippers
    • R90: Polar Bear Skin Rug
    • R91: Aeronaut Pieces (Boots, Gloves, Helm, Jacket, Leggings)
    The player that submits the most items by the deadline will receive 100,000 gold and a heartfelt thanks from the Citizens For a Cleaner Novia. A further prize of 50,000 gold will be awarded one of the participants chosen at random from the named bags submitted!

    Previous Winners:
    • R89: Gwendolyn Obscurro (100,000 Gold First Prize, 40 item-points!)
    • R89: Dorn Slate (50,000 Gold Random Winner)
    • R90: Sargoto Omega (100,000 Gold First Prize, 49 item-points!)
    • R90 Makia Goodblood (50,000 Gold Random Winner)

    Congratulations to the winners of the R89 contest! Gwendolyn Obscurro took the 100,000 gold first prize with 40 item-points, and Dorn Slate was chosen at random from amongst the participants and received a 50,000 gold bonus prize. Winners were drawn on my twitch stream shortly after the contest ended, sorry for the delay in an update.

    A new contest is underway, and will run until Monday, June 21st. Winners will be chosen and verified on stream shortly thereafter. This period's special item is the Polar Bear Skin Rug, and 200-250 will be introduced into the loot table throughout the contest period. Good luck everyone!

    The R90 contest has concluded with congratulations going to Sargoto Omega for winning the 100,000gp grand prize after turning in 49 points worth of items, including seven polar bear skin rugs! The 50,000gp random winner was Makia Goodblood, and further congratulations are in order for her!

    The new R91 contest will run until Monday, June 21st and winners will be announced on stream shortly thereafter. This release's special items are pieces of the Areonaut armor set! Many crafted areonaut leggins, gloves, boots, helms, and chest pieces will be created and sold into the loot table, so keep your eyes peeled for drops. Good luck everyone!
