Welcome to the Odyssey Quadrathalon; the most awesome-mega-hyper-super-uber Adventures in Odyssey contest ever! Unlike other contests, this contest has different catagories to find the most well-rounded and overall biggest fan. As the name suggests, there will be four parts and it will run the length of our term. Here are the contests;

Pride - Due Saturday, July 3rd, 11:59 PM EST - In this contest, entrants will submit a creative photo of their Adventures in Odyssey collection. It doesn't matter how much you have, just how creatively you arrange it. You can put in anything Odyssey related; albums, books, videos, video games, board games, posters, hand drawn character illustrations, T-shirts, backpacks, anything! You can be in the picture yourself if you'd like but, you don't have to.

Memory - Due Saturday, July 31st, 11:59 PM EST - This will involve answering 50 trivia questions all based on quotes. You might have to finish quotes, figure out who said them, or in what episode they were said.

Creativity - Due Saturday, August 28th, 11:59 PM EST - You know that idea that you've always thought should be an Odyssey episode? Well, here's your opportunity to share it. Contestants can submit a full script, scene or summary using any characters; old, current, or even your own. You can be as crazy or as serious as you want. Episodes will be judged on originality, writing and possibility of actually being produced (Odyssey continuity, not confusing in radio format, etc.).

Knowledge - Due Saturday, September 25th, 11:59 PM EST - The last category is very simple. Participants will answer 50 general trivia questions in a variety of formats.

Scoring - Each contest will be worth 50 points and, obviously, whoever has the most points after all four contests, will win. The Memory and Knowledge portions will simply award one point per correct answer. The Pride and Creativity portions will be slightly more complicated. Each will have a general poll. (without names) Each vote that an entry gets will be worth one point. Then, 50 minus the number of votes that the winning vote-getter received, is the amount of points out of which the administrators will award each contestant. For example:

Contestant A - 18 votes
Contestant B - 11 votes
Contestant C - 7 votes

The admins will give a maximum of 32 addition points to each contestant. In this scenario, they might give 31 to contestant A, (since it was apparently the best) 26 to contestant B and 20 to Contestant C. So, the points awarded for this contest (be it Pride or Creativity) would be;

Contestant A - 18 31=49 points
Contestant B - 11 26=37 points
Contestant C - 7 20=27 points

Extra Credit - Due Saturday, September 25th, 11:59 PM EST - At any time during the contest, you can submit extra proof of fanship. It could be a video of an episode you've acted out or scene you've memorized, a photo of a Lego model of Whit's End, or a funny story about when your family listened all the way across the country. It could be anything really; be creative. Only ONE item will be accepted and it will receive a maximum of 10 points.

The Fabulous Prize - The winner will receive a fabulous copy of The Knight Travellers which includes audio episodes Break a Leg and Blackbeard's Treasure (haha, isn't that ironic that it's part of a prize from Regis Blackbeard :lol: :anxious: ) or $1000 of fabulous ToO cash! Second and third place finishers will receive $500 and $250 of fabulous ToO cash, respectively.

Frequently Asked Questions O.k., I lied. Nobody's actually asked them yet. Maybe they should be called "Probable Questions".

Q: How do I submit my entries?
A: You can either PM me (King Butter Turtle), e-mail me, or get it to Regis, Catspaw, or myself via facebook, fax, telegram, smoke signals or misc. means of communication.

Q: Do I have to compete in all four contests?
A: No. You probably won't have a very good shot at winning if you don't but, you can compete in as many or few as you like.

Q: Can I use something I've submitted for a previous contest?
A: No. All entries need to be original to be fair for everyone who isn't LizzieG. :wink:

Q: Can I advertise this on my Odyssey fan site?
A: Absolutely! We'd love the publicity; the more, the merrier!

Q: Do I have to be a member of the Town of Odyssey to enter?
A: No. But, of course, we'd love for you to join anyway.

Q: In the pride contest, am I allowed to use Photoshop?
A: Yes. But, be warned that excessive use of Photoshop could be cause for a point deduction. It depends on how it's done. Also, please don't photoshop in items that you don't actually own.

Q: How fabulous are the fabulous prizes?
A: Very fabulous! 8-)

Q: My question wasn't answered. What do I do?
A: Ask it, of course!

Awesome! My collection should be slightly expanding in the next few days (Official Guide, posters, tracts), which should give me a few more items to work with. Huzzah and Wooton for the Odyssey Quadrathalon!

Yay! The "pride" part will give me an reason to put all my Odyssey stuff together in one place again, instead of scattered all over my bedroom.

She left many of us behind. She left us heartbroken. And though we cry now there'll come a time when we'll laugh. Because we'll see her again someday. We'll be with her in heaven. And when we go to heaven she'll be there to greet us. She'll be there to say "Welcome home." -From a poem that SnC wrote about her grandmother

The only way I could figure out how to send it was to send it to Catspaw because I don't know how to resize pictures. :( Sorry.

Technically, it isn't a list. Just do any or all of the four contests in the next few months and send them into KBT or Regis. :) The first one is Pride. Good luck!

And welcome, TIFTT! :)
