icon Request a Feature! (+1)  
Iím sure all of you have wanted to request a feature for DROD at one time or another. Yes? I thought so. Some of you may have gone on to post that feature idea in the Feature request forum, and a select few would have suggested an idea that has been labelled a Very Good Ideaô.

Well, for this competition, I will be trying to see how many of you can think up a Very Good Ideaô . Your objective for this unoffical contest is to think up a feature, based apon the Daddy Long Legs Spider

Rules:
1. There is no restrictions on being a copycat(within reason). Anything you say can be used in a feature request.

2. This monster(it doesnít have to be called a daddy long legs) must cover at least 4 squares at any one time(I would make it more, but I donít want to cramp someoneís idea.)

3. You may only make one submission(which can be modified and changed as many times as you want, as long as its done before 18th). You may, however, list variations.

4. No mocking other peoples idea. Their idea may suck, and in that case you can vote it down, no need to insult them.

Voting.
I would like the voter to judge which request that you think would be the most enjoyable to have in DROD, and thus the most puzzle potential. Please donít mark according to the complexity or how hard it would be to implement. Bonus points should be given for those who use the daddy long legs concept in an interesting way.

How to request.
The feature requests should be in the following format.

Name: (What you wish this Monster to be called)

Description: (what does it look like? What does it do, and any interesting trivia)

Movement: (how big/small is it, how does it move. Illustrations are allowed, but not required.)

Interaction: (how does it interact with Beethro? And what about brains and other monsters?)

Puzzle potential: (Be as discriptive or vague as you wish)

Advantages:

Disadvantages:

MISC: (anything you want to say, but canít fit it into the above catagories.)

Variations: (you may leave this blank if you want)

Winning:
First place will recive 30 rank points
Second place will recive 20 rank points
Third place will recive 10 rank points

Everyone else will be given the satisfaction of knowing that they have added to the list of ideas that can be used in the future.
(Big thank you to Erik, who was was kind enough to offer these prizes)

Anonymity
In order to make sure that no one sub-consciously or consciously votes with who the person is that made up the Feature request in mind, I will do my best to keep all contestants completely anonymous, until the end of the contest.

Dates
In negative 680 weeks, I will create a submission topic, and you can submit your feature there. Then, one week later, innegative 678 weeks, 1 day, I will create a poll, for which you can all vote for which feature request you like the best.

Which means that this contest will close to submission's on Local Time:10-18-2006 at 08:00 AM
Unless you give me a very good reason.

This contest will then end in negative 676 weeks, 2 days and I will then award 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

NOTE THAT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THIS FEATURE WILL ACTUALLY BE IMPLEMENTED!

My feature request.
As most of you have should probably figured, this contest idea sprung from a feature request that I couldnít quite iron out. I have hid it untill the end of the contest, so afterwards, you can see why I didn't suggest it.

Name: Daddy Long Legs Of Death (DLLOD)

Description: This is a fairly large spider. Itís whole aim in life is to kill the wielder of the Ďgreat shiny thingôí

Movement: , covering 8 squares at any one time (like a 3x3 grid, with a hole in front of the head)it moves by stretching out 4 of its legs every turn, in the direction of beethro. It can also bunch up into a space of 6 squares if required.(by putting 4 of its legs on the wall). But in that case, it cannot turn around

Interaction: The Daddy long legs will never step on Beethroís sword, however, Beethro can stab the daddy long legs anywhere but the belly and nothing will happen. If the daddy long legs head(or legs) should reach Beethro, he dies. If Beethroís sword should reach the spiders belly, it dies. If there is a brain present, the Daddy Long legs will never allow itself to go down a 2 way passage. It can walk over other monsters.

Puzzle potential: Having a room containing a 2 way passage leading onto a 1 way passage, with a brain and a Daddy long legs, thus making a struggle to kill the brain to destroy the Daddy long legs

Advantages: A monster that cannot be blocked by other monsters(other than monsters of the same type it is), but can block other monsters.

Disadvantages:Large, cumbersome, not very useful.

MISC: none

Variations: none


So, what are you waiting for? Start thinking!

"GUARANTEE". Just a friendly note from your local spelling enthusiast.

Anyway, this seems like fun. Not going to enter an idea, but I'd like to see the ones that are made.

I think you mean rank points; mod points aren't even awarded for official contests (unless one counts Erik's "Don't Ask and Ye Shall Receive").

Ok, I fixed those two things.

So, does anyone have any questions/corrections/comments on the actual contest as opposed to errors in my post?

If not, I might as well get the submission topic up and running.

Ok guys, I'm gonna triple post in my own contest topic to tell you guys that there is now less than 1 week left to enter.

May I remind you guys and girls that anyone who enters at the moment has a very good chance of winning some rank points. Considering that you can't get more than 5-10 rank points for a normal feature request, thats a pretty good deal.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say that what I have seen thus far has been quite impressive. You deserve a pat on the back :) .

Just a reminder to every one that this contest is almost closed to submission. I would really appreicate just one more entry so that I can award a 3rd place.
