    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 R96 Contest Period runs from now until Tuesday, December 28th

    Contest periods fall somewhere roughly within each release period, and entries can be placed in a container with your 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)
    • R92: Gustball Uniform Pieces (Jersey, Leggings, Boots, Helm)
    • R93: Wizard's Hat
    • R94: Halloween Items! (Burial Coffins, Gravestones, Spider Cloaks, and Jack-O-Lanterns!)
    • R95: Feast Items! (Brewing Ingredients, Turkeys, and more!)
    • R96: Christmas Items! (Many Holiday Items Included)
    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!

    Congratulations to Lilith Ayin for taking first place with 155 item-points! This smashes the previous record and earns her the 100,000 gold prize. More folks turned in items this contest than any of the previous months, and from them Keyman was drawn at random to win the 50,000 gold prize, so further congratulations are in order there!

    One contest ending means another has started, and to celebrate the new and exciting alchemy changes the special item this release will be Wizard's Hats! This contest period runs from now until Tuesday, September 28th, and good luck to all!

    R93 Items have been tabulated and congrats again to Lilith Ayin for pulling ahead in a close contest to take the 100,000 gold main prize! The 50,000 gold random prize was awarded to Chakotay, and the R94 contest is now underway!

    This release will be Halloween themed and Gravestones, Burial Coffins, Spider Cloaks, and Jack-o-Lanterns will all be sold into the loot table and worth 5 points each! These items will be slightly more rare since they require more mats to construct (many thanks to Gwendolyn Obscuro and Skeggy Media for contributing materials!) but a greater number of "normal" items will be sold this month to make up for it. Happy hunting!

    The R94 contest is complete! Gwendolyn Obscurro took first prize for 100,000 gold and a further 50,000 gold was won by Zandara Wildus who was chosen at random from all the entrants!

    For this November release thousands of feast items will be sold into the loot table, so be on the lookout and turn them in to win!

    Congratulations to Tetron Firestorm for wining the R95 contest with 49 item-points worth 100,000gp! Alley Oop was chosen at random as the 50,000gp runner up, and a new contest is underway!

    The R96 contest will run until Tuesday, December 28th. While R96 is a short release (so the contest actually runs into R97) this will give folks more time to collect drops and also let them be used as Christmas deco before before the turn in. This month's bonus items are various and all Christmas/Holiday themed, so be on the lookout for lots of new drops, and of course the same old headdresses, wings, etc are still well worth turning in too!

    Doh.. I thought that meant there was a section of a town named "Arlia's Shopping District" - didn't realize "Arlia" was the name of the POT itself. Thanks.
