--------------------------------------

To celebrate Ragol.co.uk's first birthday, i'm running 4 different competitions in which YOU could walk away with a nice little set of Phantasy Star Online, Episode I & II goodies! These prizes are a small collection of randomly selected items/armours/weapons/rares/meseta, etc. that are only obtainable through playing the Nintendo Gamecube version of Phantasy Star Online, Episodes I & II and by playing Online. If you don't play this version of the game, especially online, then don't despair, you can still enter the competition. If you win and are unable to collect the prize because of any of these types of reasons then you can simply donate them to another fellow user of your choice! Just enter, test your skills, become the first ever Ragol.co.uk know-it-all!

This competition judges your creativity and love for Phantasy Star! Using your knowledge of the series, we want you to create your own weapon! This weapon must be drawn in Microsoft Paint (Or the equivilent if you're using an Apple Mac). The actual quality of the art will not win you the prize, its the brilliance of the weapon you've created that will win you this competition!

To enter, you must draw your own weapon however you like. You can base it on other existing weapons, but its your imagination that counts! When you have done that, we want you to compile the weapons statistics you have given it, including ATA, MST, etc. As on Phantasy Star Online, we'd like to hear your weapons statistics, and a short description of it.

Maybe one day it could appear in a Item Database of the future, alike below!

When your happy with it, E-Mail it to xiang_lee_yoshi2004@hotmail.com (Putting 'Weapon' in the subject line of the E-Mail). Or if you'd rather, post it here below! But make sure the picture isn't that big, dimension wise or file-size wise!

All entries will be judged by an expert panel, with the winner notified soon after the competition closes next friday, at Midnight. Credit also goes out to GOLDIE for coming up with this idea for a competition!

Good Luck!

Ah, another fine weapon Phantom_RAcast!

Dunno about the ATP required though...its gonna be a while till someone can use it! I notice how you've stated that FOmarls are obviously not strong enough to handle the 'Heavy Sword'!

GOLDIE

lol, these weapons get better and better! I don't think you'll find many cars around Ragol though...but at least we know not to act as a Traffic Warden around Rappies!

GOLDIE

....It's quite obvious that the funniest weapon is going to win, so I don't think I'm even gonna bother waisting my time on making one.

Ivan
29-03-2004, 09:25 PM
Hehe, I would, but I donn't have a good imaging program yet and I'm not very funny when it comes to making art...I use jokes from Hollywood Squares Futurama, and Family Guy from the episode that was on last night.

I can at least try...gimme a day er two.

You've got until friday which is more then enough time for all i think! This contests judges your creativity, not your humour, but you can by all means make it funny! :P Also all weapons will not be judged on their drawing, just the weapon in question. Drawing it in MS Paint should limit that!

So congratulations to Mel for submitting the winning weapon!

You've won Prize Fund 1! To collect the prize, either post below with a time (GMT) for when you are available to collect the several items you've won in this fund through online play of Phantasy Star Online, Episodes I & II for Nintendo Gamecube, or nominate a fellow registered Ragol.co.uk Forum user to either collect it on your behalf or give to keep because you're unable to collect them yourself if maybe you don't play the Gamecube version of the game, or not online.

Thanks to all who entered, and thank you to GOLDIE for coming up with the idea, worked out a treat!

Awww... :(

Soz, Junon...we all know you should have won on the count of Mel's fould language :P ^_^; Nice job to everyone. I feel like giving out prizes to runner-ups. That means to renew your HL you lazy bums. :)

Prizes will be awarded to Junon and Zweihander-Zero on either Nintedno gamecube version of Phantasy Star Online I and II or Phantasy Star online episode III. (Renew your HL junon!) If you can't renew at the moment, Ill hold my extra goodies aside for you. Or same thing as Lee, if you can't choose someone else to accept it on your behalf or let them take it.

NOTE: All rewards are 100% legit

Faulkie
04-04-2004, 05:56 PM
can I get a loser prize?

Junon
04-04-2004, 06:50 PM
Nar, its alright man - I just wanted to win, give the items to someone else.

I wont be renewing my HL anytime soon, PSO EP2 servers are dead :/

Faulkie
04-04-2004, 06:55 PM
the ep II servers are ok, aren't they??
Hey, could I have the prize Junon?

Junon
04-04-2004, 06:58 PM
Not Europe, even American servers are pretty dead; since i last went on anyway. Theres plenty of people on the JP servers but unfortunately i cant speak Japanese. Sure word select is good, but you end up sounding like a robot all the time and can never actually say what you want.

I dont see much point in multiplayer games when you cant talk properly. You might aswell play single player - And to be honest PSO gets very boring very fast single player.

Sure you can grab the stuff - If its kay with Ivan

Ivan
04-04-2004, 06:59 PM
Dead means noone plays on 1 and 2 anymore, mostly episode 3...not shut down.

Faulkie
04-04-2004, 07:00 PM
thanks, you're the best!
Online pso is kewl, and there's usually about 500+ people on the American servers when I go on (which is every day)
Ivan! Is it ok with you?

Mel
06-04-2004, 10:20 AM
Give it to Zweihander. Can't take it, I've got an XBox. But tell me what I missed out on anyway so I have a valid excuse to throw something out my window- ::Lunges for his cat::

I'm suprised that none of you know how to use the transparencies in paint when you put text down... o_O

EDIT: Uh, no. Faulkie can't get TWO prizes. xD

Lee-yoshi
06-04-2004, 10:38 AM
lol, ok, the prize goes to Zweihander-Zero. I'll PM the user to let them know! I'll post all the prize funds very soon.

Zweihander-Zero
06-04-2004, 07:48 PM
yay im offline only -_-

Ivan
06-04-2004, 07:59 PM
erm...ok this is odd...two free presents...who should we give to lee? (Don't even ask Faulkie -.-)

GOLDIE
06-04-2004, 08:09 PM
If it can't be settled then we might have to make a raffle type system...

Mini_Bert
06-04-2004, 08:20 PM
Well there are only three more people left who actually entered, ask them first, if only one person wants it then give it to them, if more than one wants it, raffle or ask a skill testing question. If none of them want it you can do 1 of 2 things, either raffle it off to the public or just keep it.

Lee-yoshi
06-04-2004, 10:35 PM
lol, oh man, im gonna sort sumin out with the prizes, they wern't HUGE, it was just a little something extra anyways. Im not sure anyone is gonna hugely miss them! I'll make a seperate thread about them all soon probabily, im quite sure there's easter competitions that can be held, hint hint... :P
