Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

It’s Arrrgust in Pirate101 – So let’s design a cool housing item!

OK, my apologies to One Eye’d Jack and Captain Avery on this one, Ditto is about a week late on this contest due to a number of furry monster related things, but it’s still Arrrgust and Ditto has prizes to give away, so hopefully they won’t make me walk the plank!

So I sent out a request to my fans for good contest ideas, and I got some great ones, I”m sure I’ll use them all eventually.  For Arrrgust, though, there was one that made the most sense – so thanks to Jose  on Twitter I’ve got a fun idea for a great design contest – design an interactive housing item.

Interactive Cannon in Swashbuckler House

Interactive Cannon in Swashbuckler House

For Arrrgust, I’m asking folks to design a cool interactive housing item like the giant cannon in the Swashbucker’s house!  Just send me an email at dittopirate@gmail.com with the subject ‘Arrrgust’, and tell me about your idea.  Tell me what it is and what it does – does it do a cool animation, does it grant daily rewards, or maybe it’s a prank Witchdoctor item that turns non-witchdoctors into chickens?  Have fun with it, but make sure it fits within the Pirate101 world – no guns that shoot unicorns or anything…  Make sure you include your pirate name, and if you want to add a picture of your idea, that’s fine too.

The contest is open from right now to Friday, August 30th, and I will select and notify winners on August 31st.  The top prize is a code for a random class house in Pirate101, 10,000 crowns, and a ‘Pack-O’Porters’ teleporter pack!  I will personally choose my favorite entry for the grand prize and post it here on the blog.

I ALSO have a number of other prizes to give out as well, including codes for ‘Pack-O-Porters’ and 5,000 crowns, or codes for 2500 crowns.  All these winners will be chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal shot there.

As always, please only one entry per person, we need to play fair, and don’t add any personal information.  IF you’re 13 or under, please make sure you have permission from a parent or guardian, too.

    If we do an Item that Gives Daily Rewards, do we have to list the Rewards?

    • You can if you want, but it’s not required – you can just say ‘gives away a cool daily reward’ or ‘gives a random level-appropriate reward’, something like that.

    Can I use a Computer to design a housing item? (Microsoft paint, Adobe Photoshop, etc)

    • Absolutely! Just make sure it has a description of what it does, since it needs to be interactive.

    • No – there are multiple winners for those prizes.

  4. I wonder how we get those crowns if we win? We don’t even send you our account name so how do we get it. Do we get codes mailed back to us?

    • The codes all get emailed as a reply to the contest entries.
