Comic Strip Event

It's... comical!

 Do you consider yourself "punny?" Do you have a great sense of humour? Do your friends think you tell way too many "Dad" jokes? Do you have a secret artistic side that not many people know about? Then, this is the event for you!


It's time to let your creative side shine in this special server-wide, Black Waltz FC sponsored event, "The Black Waltz Comic Book!"


From now until April 30th, 2019, a special channel will be created in the Black Waltz Free Company Discord server entitled, "Comic Book Event." We are looking for the most creative, most funny comic strips you can create using in-game materials! What does this mean? It's a simple as taking multiple screen shots and putting them together to form a short, funny story! We have posted a sample comic in the channel to get everyone's mind "attuned" to what we're looking for!


If you wish to participate in this event, please post your comics in the "Comic Book Event" channel of the Black Waltz Discord Server! If you wish to participate, please request an invite on this thread and one will be sent to you!


JUDGING


The winner of this event will be decided by votes that are based on how funny and how creative the comic is. Votes will be done using "reactions" to the picture by fellow players in the Black Waltz Free Company Discord Server; however, there are only two *reactions that will count as a vote:


"Thumbs Up" = The comic made you smile. Each of these reactions are worth 1 point.
"Laughing" = The comic made you laugh. Each of these reactions are worth 3 points.


The points will then be added up and the three people with the highest scores will receive the first, second, and third place prizes respectively. We want you to vote for EVERY comic, but with only one of the below reactions. If you use both reactions, we will only count the lower-valued as your input and ignore the higher-value.


PRIZES


1st Place: 5,000,000 gil + Mogstation Minion
2nd Place: 3,000,000 gil + Mogstation Minion
3rd Place: 2,000,000 gil + In-Game Minion


The deadline for submissions is April 30th, 2019!


For our members who may play this game on the PS4, don't fret - we are aware that it may not be as easy to take a screen shot and edit it. When you click on the "Share" button on your controller, it will bring up a sub-menu in which there is an option to "Save Screen Shot." You can then upload the screen shot to a private album or folder on one of your social media accounts, and then save the picture from there to a computer. There is a lot of free software out there that will allow you to edit the photos into a comic strip both on a computer and on a smartphone.


Please note that we are not looking for top-quality editing - we are only looking that there is a story and the story is funny and creative. Use emotes, minions, actions, and the environment to your advantage!


Good luck, and have fun!


DISCLAIMERS

  1. In the event of a tie for any level of prize, that particular prize will be divided equally among the submissions.
  2. Vote for each comic only once using one of the two reactions listed above. If an individual votes twice (uses both reactions), only the lower-valued reaction will count.
  3. Any reactions that are submitted that are not either of the two listed above will not count.
  4. Only one submission is allowed per account / player. If two players are submitting a comic together, the prize will be shared equally between them if they win the event.

Black waltz trivia night

 Saturday, April 27th, 2019 at 10:00pm EST.


Due to the vast amount of categories available with any Trivia Game, this edition of our FC Trivia Night will focus on the following categories:


Viral/Top Selling Video Games
Entertainment (Music, Movies, and Television)
Geography
World History


Questions will be separated into three categories: Easy, Medium, and Hard. Each level of question will be worth a separate set of points:


Easy = 3 Points
Medium = 6 Points
Hard = 9 Points


To facilitate this event and to avoid clutter in Free Company Chat, a Linkshell will be created for participants where questions will be answered. Each question will be given by voice in our Discord channel, but answers MUST be provided in the Linkshell created for the event. This avoids several people talking over each other and also provides a time stamp for answers. The first person to correctly answer a question (on Istari’s screen) will be awarded the point value for that question.


At the end of the event, the scores will be tallied and the person who has the highest amount of points will be declared the first place winner.


Sample Question #1:


“This Final Fantasy enemy is known throughout the series for having Bad Breath.”


A: Marbol/Marboro


Sample Question #2:


"This late 1990s / early-2000s girl group sang about guidelines for if you 'wannabe' their lover."


A: Spice Girls
