Hear ye, Hear ye!!!

Has there been a time when you can not only participate in
one event but two?!? Well, now's the time. It's been one
year now since the quest orbs were introduced into the
Realm. To honour that one year anniversary, we are going
to have a contest.

What's the contest you might ask? It's to provide the
most well constructed hint for a quest. These are the
general guidelines:

- Hint cannot give away the solution
- Hint should be thematically in line with the domain
- Hint should be creative and help those reading it to
get started on the quest.

Submit them to the AoE via mail until the end of the day
May 15, 2009. After this, the AoE team will decide on the
best submission for each quest. Those whose submissions
get used in the quest orbs will receive rewards! We may
also give out other types of awards as well, such as
Best Hint, Most Hints, Most Thematic, etc.

Here are some examples:
- An orc in the wilderness near Sparkle is missing something.
(decent, but lame)
- A female orc in some hut is missing X and you can get it by
looking in Y. (lame lame lame)
- The orb swirls and reveals to you an image of a female orc
in the wilderness near Sparkle sobbing in her hut and in
need of help. (better, but you can do even better!)

Disclaimer: The AoE reserves the right to modify the hint
after submission for final inclusion in the orb.
This will be done mainly to provide a consistent
feel with other quest hints.
