CONTEST IS LIVE! ^^
Henge of Denravi Community Contest!
The Henge of Denravi community and HengeofDenravi.com are teaming up to bring you a community contest to celebrate the launch of the game and introduce Henge of Denravi (HoD) players to their fellow players and community.
While the contest was initially designed for guild-less HoD players and those interested in joining the server, the contest is open to everyone, including HoD players that are already in a guild. We want to showcase the guilds on HoD and have others get to see the community forming around Henge of Denravi!
The contest will start on Sunday, September 2nd and run until Sunday, September 9th at 7:00pm PST. There are two parts to the contest that each participant must complete. The first part is a scavenger hunt, finding 'mystery words' across the websites of the guilds of HoD. The second part is a bit more dynamic, giving you three options to choose from to show off your creative side. More details about both contest parts are given below.
Once both parts are complete, you will need to create an account on HengeofDenravi.com so that you can use our contest entry submission form and also be contacted easily in the event you are a prize winner. Once the contest ends, prizes will be drawn. There will be a winner randomly drawn out of all the correct scavenger hunt lists submitted and a winner chosen by a panel of the HengeofDenravi.com staff out of all the user-created pieces.
The prizes are 1600 gems for each winner. Due to gems being untradeable, 1600 gems will be purchased and then sold at current market rates and that amount of ingame money will then be passed along to the winners ingame so they can either repurchase those gems or do with the ingame money as they see fit.
(EDIT: Unfortunately, we've found that due to ArenaNet's desire to combat hackers and such, we won't be able to mail you the gold until September 24th. You WILL still receive your prize but it will just have to be a bit later. We apologize for the inconvenience.)

Part 2 - User-Created Content
Additionally, you need to create something as well. Choose from one of the three possible options listed below:
1. Write a story with as many of the HoD guild names (listed above in the scavenger hunt) as possible. Stories will be judged on creativity, understandable plot line, the amount of guild names used, and overall spelling/grammar (this last part will be our least emphasized criteria - we understand some may be non-native English speakers). Please submit all entries in English; entries written in New Krytan would have been amazing but, sadly, we have no time to decipher.
2. Create a picture/graphic/video using as many of the HoD guild names as possible. Some examples are (but not limited to) : collage of guild name screenshots from the HoD guilds' websites or in-game shots of their name, ASCII-like art using guild name text, or forum signature graphic with the guild names scrolling by. Pictures/graphics/videos will be judged on creativity and the amount of guild names used.
3. Take three screenshots, each one including at least one member of the HoD guilds listed above. Please have them selected so we can verify that it is the correct guild. Each screenshot should have a different HoD guild member shown (three different members of the same HoD guild is fine). Screenshots will be judged on the uniqueness and creativity of the captured scene and location. Posed/pre-arranged shots are perfectly acceptable but not required.
Afer you have chosen one of the three options and created something, you need to upload it to the internet so you can submit it in link form on the contest entry form. Pictures and screenshots can be uploaded using services like tinypic or imgur. Videos should be uploaded to Youtube and linked that way. Text and stories can be uploaded to places like pastebin. So long as it's a working link to your created content, it's fine.
