    Tournament: The Art Exhibition

    Harrogath is hosting an exhibition/competition in the Art Gallery (What do you mean “There isn’t an Art Gallery in Harrogath?†It’s the square building next to the Waypoint. Admittedly it only has crude paintings of Barbarians hitting things with sharp bits of metal or pointy sticks, but that is to about to change).

    For the exhibition to be a success pictures are required according to the following rules:

    1. Any new or existing character can compete. Any version, any difficulty, HC, SC, vanilla or (acceptably) modded.
    2. Each entry must consist of 5 pictures, to be submitted in the form of in-game screenshots. Images can be hosted by ImageShack or similar sites. (To take a screenshot, press the “Print Screen†key. The image will be stored in your main Diablo II Folder).
    3. Pictures must be of Unique monsters. (Original work only. No copies of other people’s work is allowed).
    4. Boss, Super Unique and Champion, Fanatic, Possessed, Ghostly etc. type monsters do not count. (Super Uniques spawn in fixed areas and include the likes of Thresh Socket, Pindleskin, Bishibosh, etc. The full list can be seen in ATMA’s Drop Calculator).
    5. One point will be awarded for each letter, spaces not included, of the Unique monster’s name. Rusthole The Flatulent, for example, would score 20 points.
    6. Unique monsters having each name beginning with the same letter score double. Sweaty Skull, for example, would score 22 points. Scale Skin The Scary would not score double as ‘The’ does not begin with ‘S’.
    8. Characters with the ability to use a corpse (for raising minions or horking) cannot claim the word “Corpse†added to the Unique’s name after it has been killed.
    9. The entrant with the most points wins. In the event of a tie, the winners will have one further submission of 5 pictures. If there is still a tie, the winner will be decided, by me, on artistic merit. This can be gained by having a theme to your pictures (e.g. “Unique Skeletonsâ€, “One From Each Actâ€, “The Forgotten Tower Five†or “Desert Scenes - Nightâ€. Use your imagination!)
    10. Characters may submit multiple entries. However, once a picture has been submitted, it may not be used as part of another entry.

    Entries are accepted from now until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday 28 February 2006.

    My Diablo 2 is in french and some of the names are really long...Ex: La Veuve Noir: Dent de Feu which would be translated to 'The Black Widow: Tooth of Fire'. Unfair?

    I don't think I've ever seen a unique monster name with ":" in it. Must be a French thing....:scratch:

    Count me in Atil! I haven't joined any tournaments, and I certainly want to join one, but I haven't because I just started my 1.11 career and I want to have powerfull chars (to see how 1.11 in hell is) then I'll restrict myself (after the experience) so:

    Whoa! DM's french version would definatly have an unfair advantage, but if non English langs. are allowed, may I suggest that words with letter combinations that are in the alphabet as a unique letter (rr, ll, or ch in spanish for instance) be counted as only 1 letter.

    Unfortunately, the rr,ll and ch do not exist more in the official spanish as letters :cry: The Royal Academy of Language dropped them and now they are only "combination" of letters! Now our alphabet looks a lot like the english one :sad2:

    It would be unfair for me to join so I won't. No need to worry about it ;)

    @jrlafrance: Vive la France! Wee! But the french Diablo 2 *IS* messed up. The translation is really poor too. Let's just say that a green coronna, in french, could be Iratha, Griswold or Milabrega. 'Couronne' is used by so many items types that it's impossible to tell the difference until you pick it up and/or ID it.

    Doh! I never thought about the foreign language versions :duh:

    I could allow the main descriptors so you could have "Veuve Noit Dent Feu" =16. Getting all the names with the same letters could be a problem. What do others think?

    I know what you mean Dementia, my spanish version does the same, ring mail for example is the name for the exceptional and elite versions too, they don't change, that took me a lot to figure out. Solution? I just bought the english version :wink:

    About Atil comment, for me it's fine, more players are always welcome, I do this for the fun, not for the prize itself

    that's right pucho, but I still miss those letters, it made more complex, enjoyable and artistic the spanish alphabet, not it looks almost exactly like the english one :evil:

    Most foreign languages have special letters... é è à ç in example. To remain on topic, I'll enter just for fun so if I ever score a monstrous amount of point and win, just give the prize to the second place.

    I don't know about the french version, but there is a solution for spanish version users, the english language is included in the spanish version of the game. You can have english text in game

    Whoa, Atil, what a cute idea!!!! Really clever, dude. A tiny bit like Scavenger Hunt, but with some really original twists.

    I've still active in the SPUMPF Tourney and the Skill-less Tourney, and of course I've just finished hosting the Scavenger Hunt. So I'm not ready to jump in to new tourneys at the moment - but I'll watch this thread and start paying attention to my unique monsters and.....who knows? .....

    I couldn't agree more. In fact, if I win, please donate the proceeds to the runner-up (or the giveaway thread).

    Questions about the rules:
    1. Can a player (me) submit multiple photos from different characters?
    2. Is an entry considered a player (me) or a character?
    10. By characters, I'm assuming you are talking about D2 characters.
