Ah, I see you’ve come to investigate my little ‘destruction’. Image MWAHAHA. But be forewarned, there is nothing, NOTHING you can do to stop the great and powerful Amethyra! *CACKLES*

In case your feeble little minds are wondering why I am here, it is simple. I am the magnificent Amethyra, formerly known to all of you as God’s Girl. But alas, now I won’t stop until every book in the library is destroyed!

This is what you get for building your library over my cave!

Oh no, God's Girl has been taken over, whatever are we to do?

But wait, what do we have here? All the fairy tale characters have been freed from their books! If we can help them solve their puzzles and find their way back, they will help us put Amethyra back to sleep for another 10000 years (what a crick in the neck!) That will remind me not to judge a book by its cover. Here is the first one:

Alice in Wonderland!

This book is a bit of a warm up, future challenges may be more difficult. Each word found will earn you a point. What do these points mean? Keep playing... Err... Reading... To find out! More detals will be forthcoming.

Go check out the library for this and further challenges as they release!

*throws a bucket of water on bookwork*

Sorry for the wet, but better than seeing you burn *ahem*

And if you don't want the books to burn, help us out

Book 2 is posted and it is one of my favourites! Help Belle save her library so she can help us with ours!

Book 3 is posted as well, this one is a little simpler and should give a bit of a breather.

Book 4 has been posted! This is a team event, so grab your friends!

And there is Book 5! I need some help protecting myself from this Amethyra!

Okay, everyone, the event is now coming to a close. Due to some craziness in my recent schedule, scores will be tabulated and announced tomorrow night. If any of you have last minutes submissions I will be accepting them until around 5:30 EST Tuesday 5/20. So if you forgot to send in your pictures or what not, you will get your chance.

We have defeated you, Amethyra! Now you must go back and leave our friend with us!

And with that, I will announce the final scores:

Amethyra 18
Bobmac 50
Bookworm 186
Christian 139
Shtakji 18
Termite 87
Woody 86

All players will be receiving $2 ToO per point with Bookworm receiving an additional $200 for his first place finish

Well done to you all!

Bookworm really shown through with Book 5, taking 31 self photos, as well as leading the charge with 13 books ID'd in Book 2.

My apologies for not getting clues up for Book 2.

ETA: I will be posting clues shortly for the books if anyone is interested in getting the rest =)

That all said, even those of you with low points, it was great to see you participate, I hope you enjoyed your time as much as it made me smile to see your new names.

We even had two players, Christian and Bookworm compete in all 5 events!

Now if you all will join me in a group hug we can finish Amethyra once and for all!

*hugs God's Girl and thanks her for the help with the event*

P.S. If you were wondering how scores were calculated:
Book 1 - 1 point per word found, max 25
Book 2 - 3 points per Book Cover identified, max of 51 for all 17
Book 3 - 1 point per turn in the solution of the maze (32)
Book 4 - 1 point for every 5 points by the team (Yes, even Amethyra gets points here because she posted! She actually brought us over 575 which we needed, defeating herself!) *hides*
Book 5 - 1 point for each image, 2 if they were self taken (Max of 72)

An additional 5 points were awarded if you were the first to give a correct answer on a book.

4th place! \:D/

You're welcome, GG! Though really, you should thank yourself. :p
Photobucket was evil and made third-party display a premium feature. Then they increased the size and obnoxiousness of the placeholder advertisement encouraging me to upgrade. Thus, this text signature.

All monetary prizes have been handed out. In addition, all participants will be receiving a shiny badge for their inventory shortly.

We also wanted to extend our thanks for a fun term and we hope you found something you liked throughout the term.

Take a Bow is still in final editing stages, we hope to have the final release in the near future.

Blank Page will continue on in SBC allowing the two teams to continue to work as they desire and we hope something will come out of their effort in sometime to come.

Thanks again everyone!
