Miniature Review Contest #4

The Contest: Write an awesome Miniature Review that follows these criteria.

1. If you review a ship, it must have a base move of S and have more cargo spaces than it has masts. (ex: Paradox)
2. If you review a crew, it must have at least two distinct abilities. (ex: Devereaux)
3. If you review a sea creature, you must find at least one unique or interesting use for it (beyond the standard tactics).
4. If you review a Unique Treasure, equipment, flotilla, or fort, it must have no current reviews in the database yet. (unless those reviews are not for the actual item in question)
5. You may not review events, stories, or busts.

If at least 5 people enter this contest, the winner will receive this custom island made by rossinaz:


The tentative deadline is Sunday, May 21st. I can extend this if people need more time. Please post your interest and questions in this thread.

Good luck!

This sounds like fun. It may take me a while to decide what to review, though.

Intriguing parameters..... I'm most certainly in, but like godmason, may have a little difficulty in identifying a piece to review.

I'll be in. There are actually not too many ships to choose from (there is only 1 5 master that fits the criteria heh), and several jump out of me to review.

Finding crew that fits will be a little harder, heh.

I'll take a shot at it. It will be a valuable learning experience if anything.

EDIT:

4. If you review a Unique Treasure, equipment, flotilla, or fort, it must have no current reviews in the database yet. (unless those reviews are not for the actual item in question) (such as an RtSS piece, etc)

doh. That date snuck up on me. I am traveling next weekend, but I will try to get one up by Thursday! I did start one, but didn't get very far thanks to crazy schedules.

Anybody else still interested? Try marking your online calendar (I use the one from my google account) with "FC" or "MRC" on the deadline day for the future. I don't want to extend the deadline past the end of the month (5/31), but if no one else shows interest, volt will win by default.

I may try to enter. I'm not the greatest reviewer, but I can give it a go.

Sorry, the contest slipped my mind entirely.

I'd still like to review the particular item at some point, but it's doubtful that it will happen in time for this contest.

I think there's a small loophole in your rules; it's very easy to make a review for a one-masted ship.

Here's my review for HMS Stingray.

Not really a loophole, you're just taking the easy way out. Wink
