I'm tempted to just balls up and do it, because noone else will.

Where do I send the blood.

In response to the whole Moral/Difficult, Immoral/Easy concept in a game, the strongest example of that I have seen so far is Metal Gear Solid 3, where you can go the entire game killing only scripted boss kills. There is a "slight" reward in saving people, because every person you kill does count against you in the mangrove river part, but it is really harder to do the entire game without killing anyone.

Even in MGS2, the fight with Olga can be done entirely with tranquilizers, but it's rather hard and requires a lot of extra effort for almost no reward.

A rank Emma? Hmm! It will have only taken you a year of posting nine times a day!

*cackles!*

~Alja~

Addendum: I have a very funny idea of how to swing this challenge in a different direction, and spend no money in the process! Just need to get a digital camera of some sort, and then work from there.

Camera phones take Shitty McShitterson pictures in low-light conditions - you'll have to prop it up on something (Seriously, put it on a book, anything) so that it doesn't move around while it's trying to get a picture of your pumpkins.

Just an FYI out there for the cameraphoners.

I want to participate in this competition, but I lack artistic ability. But I am going to try my bestest. And I've got a fantastic idear that none of you have. So, Graham, can I get a custom rank when I win? Because I really want something to the effect of "The Cake is a lie".

I think that if a person with a title can come up with a sufficiently awesome entry, they should have their rank changed, in addition to giving an unranked person a rank. Hence why Lord Crusher should be re-titled "can drink possible beers" for his work in the Daylight Savings challenge.

I like that idea. If you win and you have a forum rank, you can change yours and give your old one to someone new. Or just designate a non-ranked person as your winner's choice. But if that happens, you have to wait a week to win again.

Damn it, guys, I was being lazy and waiting for everyone else to have a forum rank so I could just scoop one up.

Maybe I will be original and NOT get one.

I'M AN ORIGINAL

Emma, I've been here longer, still don't have one

I'M the original.

Yarr.


Anyways...this rank seems like a lot of work. And no one I know would quite understand WHY I have "64k" in my pumpkin (because no one else will actually do it..that would probably end up winning)
