Random Sack of Junk Contest!

06 Aug

Do you play Guild Wars 1? Are you trying to get your Hall of Monuments decked out in the next 2 weeks? Well I might just have something for you!

A random sack of junk! Ok, it’s not really junk, per se, but I like calling it that. And if you’ve played through War in Kryta, you’ll get the reference.

Anyway, so what hoops do I want you to jump through this time? Well glad you asked!

This is going to be a MASSIVE giveaway. I was considering doing multiple contests but I’m too lazy and there’s not enough time. So there ya go. There will be two main winners. There are also going to be two different ways to win and you can only enter each of these once.

The first way is to name my Charr plushie! (I know that’s lazy but I am really not good at coming up with names) Here are a few pics of him so you can get a sense of his personality.

The green really brings out his eyes!

You don’t have to go the Charr route and have Charr be part of his name. It’s perfectly fine to branch out and have other names. Names that fit with the lore of the Charr are a big plus.

The second way you can win is to tell me where in Tyria you would live and why. Screenshots or concept art is very welcome and would be more likely for you to win. I like pretty pictures, what can I say?

I will choose my favorite Charr name and favorite place to live in Tyria and those two people will win the following:

  • 50k (That’s 50 platinum) each.
  • 15 ectos
  • Fireworks! I have quite a bit of crates of fireworks to give away
  • Un identified golds. I have like 2 or 3 sets (or more, not sure) I’ll split them up somehow.
  • Various other sweet and alcohol points
  • Trick or treat bags! I have a bunch of these
  • Other gift bags I have not opened
  • Two unded minis (Jungle Troll and Temple Guardian)
  • Various other odds and ends.

It actually might take a while to give you all the stuff I have. I am doing a massive inventory cleaning and I am a packrat! This is good news for you ^_^ I have tons of stuff to give away because I really don’t anticipate playing the game after Guild Wars 2 launches (other than to come back once a year to check for minis to give away).

If you just want to take the money (and ectos) and run, let me know. I’ll find other homes for all the alcohol, sweets, and various other items that people can use toward their HoM. Or if you want some of that stuff, let me know as well. I just want to clear out my inventory as much as possible. If I have anything left over, I will let people know and it will be a free for all for it. 🙂

So here are some rules:

  1. Keep the entries (especially for the Charr names) clean. No profanity (unless you are using kitten, that’s fine), no racial slurs (even if they are Tyrian apropriate), no homophobia, etc.
  2. All work must be your own. Any plagiarism will not be tolerated and you will be immediately disqualified from this contest.
  3. All entries are to be submitted in the comments. Also, as I have learned from last contest, please leave some way to contact you. Twitter, Facebook, smoke signals, etc. I kind of panicked last time when I realized I wasn’t able to get a hold of people directly haha.
  4. You have until August 25th at 11:59 PDT. (same timezone as ArenaNet) I will be judging them the next day. I’m doing in this way because I will be busy in the 25th with early access playing. I bumped it up since I haven’t really been promoting it and I haven’t had many entries.

So good luck, and feel free to leave any comments if you have questions. I will be happy to answer them!

    Call him Blaze von Blunderbuss of the Iron Legion 🙂

    He looks like a good ol rifle warrior and his flash of red hair kinda goes with blaze

    Name for the Charr: Ferocious Furry!
    Place I\’d live in Guild Wars: There\’s so many, damnit xD, but the best one would be this
    Rabbit Valley:
    or this place in North Kryta Province:
    Since this is a contest I\’d say take the first one, but you can choose either if you want

    Nice blog btw ^^ And no I\’m not just apple-polishing here just to win 😀

    You can contact me on facebook or ingame on Lysdea Tukagon.

    If my character were to live anywhere in Tyria it would be Riverside Province. Although my character was born in Cantha, after a hard life of adventuring and evil-slaying, there’s nothing she’d enjoy more than settling down in a cozy farm house and spending the rest of her days tending to her crops…. after all of the resident monsters had been driven off, of course. 😉

    (I’m not sure of how to add a screenshot…if there’s a way to do it, please let me know!)

    I think Evon Dreammaker would be a good name!

    And personally I’d probably live in Olafstead. It seems like a nice, quiet town where I can meet passing travelers. I also love the cold and snow so it would be perfect for me. It even has a nice furnace to heat up from!

    Where my character would live, as a ranger I would have to go with the Maguuma jungle (

    For the Char name, I’ve always liked the guildwars m.o. for naming chars in a semi tribal way of their description, so I would go with something like Adonis Ironclaw or Mushka Firemane/ or Caleb Darkhorn/Blackclaxon

      forgot to add the why for the living area. It seems like the place a Melandru worshipper would make his home. I could see my character (Jason Malich and his pet Sheep) sneaking through the underbrush, applying poisonous frog venom onto his arrows. Tucked inside his tree-fort in the forest canopy at night.

      Can contact my at

      Cheers and hopefully I see you in game questing sometime

    Charrlie Sheen, Charr Broiled, Charrcoal, or just Charrles

    I would live at one of these lighthouses, since they look awesome:

    Hey – great blog and great idea for a competition!

    For the name of the Charr – I choose “Edgar”

    Going to try and think of where I’d like to live in Tyria but it’s gonna be a bit tricky as I’ve not explored it that well at all! I’m gonna load the game up now to help with that – still working on completing Nightfall, Factions and Prophecies xD If I do all those in time I think I will have a fair idea of which place to choose 😀
    I will post again a few days if I have come up with a desired location 🙂
