LCC - Garheim Previous Challenge Results

Postby AK_Brickster » Fri Nov 15, 2013 5:59 pm

Since the Local Challenges are really starting to stack up, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where I can keep records of previous challenges without having the first post of the faction thread be a mile long.

This isn't really a discussion thread as much as an archive, so no need to worry if it drops off the map. I will provide a link to this thread in the Garheim Faction thread for quick and easy access.

CURRENT CHALLENGE

The Challenge: See more info on GC6 HERE
Winner: To Be Determined

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

CONTEST RESULTS TO DATE

Local Challenge 17 - "Propaganda" - Hosted by AK_Brickster

The Challenge: Now that all factions are open to new members, we need to make sure that there isn't a surge in recruiting to Lenfald and Loreos!

Create a piece of pro-Garheim propaganda and share it on Flickr, MOCpages, Facebook, etc. Anywhere where we might be able to win new members over to the Northern Horde!

Winner: |T|itus's "Join Garheim!" Poster


Local Challenge #16 - "FIRST SNOW" (hosted by Gurusql and AK_Brickster)

The Challenge: After we have completed GCV and seen many of the residents of Garheim flee to the countryside. Now is time to show how the characters will deal with the first winter snow.

In this contest please build an original creation that will show your character interacting with the first snow of the season and connect this with a category for CCCXI. The snow could be out the window or even showing kids playing in it. Let your imagination run wild.

Winner: General JJ's "First Snow"


Local Challenge #15 – The Hidden Camp (hosted by Gurusql)

The Challenge: As we move past GCV, for the characters that are not still imprisoned it will be a time of chaos. (Please see AK_Brickster's post in the Coronation Thread if you were captured and did not escape.) Many of the residents of Garheim have fled to the countryside.

In this contest please build an original creation that will show your character creating, working on or otherwise interacting with a Hidden Camp. This should not be the construction of a permanent structure, but should be both temporary and discreet in appearance, so as to avoid detection. An example Lego set would be the classic Forestmen "Camouflaged Outpost", only Garheim style! :eyebrows:

Winner: General JJ's "A Safe Haven"


GLOBAL CHALLENGE V - DARK SHADOWS

The newly-crowned Queen, Galainir, has proven herself to be treacherous, having imprisoned the leaders of Roawia, along with dozens of knights, nobles, their families, and even outlaws! She has sworn to terribly torture her captives if any resistance is made, and we certainly don't want our leaders to have to go through having their fingernails extracted, so for now, we must comply with her demands.

The Challenge: Please refer to this thread for details.
Winner: Garheim - General JJ and colobustaco were Garheim's finalists.


**LC14 - Second Annual Garheim Fishing Tourney** (Hosted by gurusql)

The Challenge: Summer is upon us and has finally provided some meager relief from the harsh northern conditions. The winds have abated slightly, and in southern Garheim, the weather is almost pleasant. In celebration of surviving another cold winter, and to commemorate the coronation of our new queen, Jhirian Eindrik has declared the start of Garheim's 2nd Annual Fishing Tournament! What better way to celebrate our rich fishing history than to see who among us is the best at capturing these tasty denizens of the sea? (and provide a main course for local coronation parties as well!)
RESULTS


**LC13 - Making Preparations** (Hosted by AK_Brickster)

The Challenge: Show preparations for a great feast. This can be baking extra loaves of bread, slaughtering of livestock, pressing wine, setting up tables, etc. Your character can either be directly participating in the preparations, or just observing. If your character is attending the feast on the King's Isle, you can show him witnessing preparations as he is traveling to the Royal Banquet.
Get to work, and show Roawia that we know how to party!

Winner: colobustaco's "Preparing for the Festivities"
Hon. Mention: Str0ngbad's "Staying off the Menu"


**LC12 Welcoming Chartres** (hosted by AK_Brickster)

The Challenge: Build a section of a military parade on the streets of Mikithdar, collaborating with the person who's section is on either side of you.
The results can be seen HERE


**LC11 The New Soldiers** (hosted by gurusql)

The Challenge: As we begin the month of June, it is common to think of graduations. In this contest please build an original creation that will show new soldiers doing something for Garheim. This could include, but would not be limited to having new soldiers just finishing their training or fresh soldiers relieving the soldiers returning from one of the many battles from GC#4.

Winner: Daken the Bladesmith's "Training of the Novices"
Hon. Mention: Brother Steven's "New troops"

**LC8 - The Things of Nightmares** (hosted by AK_Brickster)

The Challenge: Howling winds... dark mountains... unknown wilderness... the screech of owls and the cry of hungry wolves.....

Nighttime in Garhiem can be a terrifying place to anyone, be it man, woman or child. Many nights around a campfire have been passed telling stories about the terrors that may be lurking just beyond the edge of the firelight. Wolves, demons, snow spirits, abominable snowmen. Real or imaginary, these are the things of nightmares.

Winner: Gurusql's "The Krokrslenta"
Honorable Mention: Konze's "Woods of Pain"


**LC7 - Garheim Landmarks** (hosted by Konze)

The Challenge:The land of Garheim is a vast and wild expanse, with much of the country uninhabited and poorly mapped. In order to avoid becoming lost in the wilderness, Garhims learn at a young age to make use of landmarks, both natural and man-made, to help guide them on their journeys. Build a scene showing your character at a prominent Garhim landmark.

Winner: Brother Steven's "Arch of Ran Gor"


**GLOBAL CHALLENGE II - The Search for the Sword**

The Challenge: Build 2 MOCs - One that shows your character gathering information about the location of the sword, and one showing them finding it.

Garhiem Finalist: Eklund's PART 1 and PART 2


**LC6 - Fishing Tournament** (hosted by AK_Brickster)

The Challenge: Summer is upon us and has finally provided some meager relief from the harsh northern conditions. The winds have abated slightly, and in southern Garheim, the weather is almost pleasant. In celebration of surviving another cold winter, Jhirian Eindrik has declared a regional fishing tournament! What better way to celebrate the region's rich fishing history than to see who among us is the best at capturing these tasty denizens of the sea?
