Yes, that's right, we're hunting for colorfully decorated nondenominational eggs. I have craftily hidden two dozen around the various communities and important posts for you to find. There will be prizes! There will be mystery! There will be lamely decorated pictures of eggs! So, first, the rules:
- Everyone can enter. Everyone who sends in their answers before the end of Sunday March 27th will be credited. There's no prize for being first (except maybe a shoutout); everyone who completes any objective will receive the same prize.
- There are 24 eggs hidden. They will be hidden as links, not pictures--yes, I am craftily trying to force everyone to read the rules. Make a list of the URLs of the posts or comments in which the eggs have been hidden in order to earn credit for having found them.
- Eggs will be hidden in posts and comments made by the following accounts: varnished_truths, brave_heart_verity, apeddlerofvarnishedtruths, nodamselnodistress, and/or la_bandette.
- Eggs will be hidden in any post linked to in the game navigation post and/or any post made in either nexus_sages or nexus_sages_ooc since the beginning of the year. Some posts may have multiple eggs. If so, put the number of eggs in the post after the URL.
- Send your URL lists to varnished_truths via PM.
- Everyone who enters will be given a chance to have one of their characters featured in a character spotlight series I'll be running. This will involve my conducting a short in-character interview with them and featuring some of their answers in posts made to the new community Tumblr and Twitter accounts. These may also be used later in another project that's still in development right now. ;) I did promise mystery!
- Everyone who finds a dozen eggs will have their choice of three icons or one larger banner made special by me. I can't really draw, but I can do a decent job recoloring a PB's hair or eyes or doing a little photomanipulation, and have some nice textures and effects to add to banners; sourcing art will be on you. Anyone who finds all 24 eggs will get double the prize: six icons, two banners, or three icons and a banner.
- Many of the eggs were made with Nexus characters in mind. If you spot an egg that you think represents a character you've seen in the Nexus, add a little explanation as to why. My favorite explanation for each egg will win the people's ovation and fame forever (I never promised they were good prizes!); and your story will be featured in the egg gallery I'll be posting when the event is over.
