Congrats -- sure thing! I've registered TCB to your user account and given you a trial month of CaravelNet. Now, just go to the Downloads page to download the game.

So apparently I have a prize pile pick because you've run out of people who didn't ask for a prize.

I'm wondering if it would be possible to sort of put a copy of DROD: TCB on /hold/, as it were, until I find someone to fling it at, because I like flinging games at people I know, and you people still don't have it on Steam so I can't aggressively buy it for people yet.

I just noticed it hasn't been written here, so I'm announcing that contest winners can claim a copy of the

DROD: The City Beneath CD Deluxe Boxed Edition.

Just let me know and I'll ship it to you.

This prize has been claimed by Penwielder. Congratulations!
I'm offering some free games on the fantastic retro gaming site GOG.com to any contest winner. You have the choice between:
(1) a $9.99 game
(2) two $5.99 games
This isn't exactly evenly spread out, but as they only have two price levels, I had to go with this solution.

www.GOG.com has a catalogue of about 200 games, including all the old classics like Baldur's Gate and such. They are all fully compatible with Windows, DRM-free, and always available for free redownload. You also get a lot of bonus goodies with each game, for example soundtracks and art.

If you want the prize, just send me a PM with the title(s) you want, and I'll gift it/them to you!

I'm happy to give it out as a prize/8 timer prize

I've claimed slimm tom's prize on GOG. I picked a couple of the Rayman games, which I've never played before on any platform. I'm looking forward even more now to whenever I next have a big chunk of free time.

Thanks, slimm tom!

SO i guess i need to do something that implies i am a part of this community or something, and do things besides, I don't know, make fun of...uh. Is Rat Man still around? Who do we make fun of now I lost track

ANYWAY OKAY the point is

I have all these games sitting in my steam inventory, specifically, I guess:

Audiosurf whoops chaco got it
Cogs
Limbo
Total War Shogun 2 (actually I have like two copies of this? One copy includes a lot of DLC)
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Dead Island
some game i think about yelling a lot and putting buckets on people's heads?

ANYWAY I am tired of staring at these things so win some contests, and make sure I'm alerted and you have a steam account, and I'll put them up in your hizz...hizzy. or something.

god I don't know I don't know things

Thanks, Banjooie!

Don't worry -- I'd say it's just growing pains. I think you're just becoming our friendly, neighborhood troll that we all know and love.

Edit: Actually, come to think of it, I think that title got handed out sometime during the formation of the Bureaucracy. It's a good thing it's dead, though, so you can claim the title without trepidation.

I'd like to add to the prize pile.

PearlsPrize: You get to pick TWO of the following:

1) I will LP (Let's Play) your entry to a comparable standard as my previous series, or weep trying in a timely fashion

2) I will purchase, for you, one (1) game on STEAM <= $15

3) I will write you an original composition, record me playing* it (piano solo) and give it to you to TREASURE** FOREVER in mp3 format or something. Will also include a personalized haiku.


I realize the majority of these options are services and this is very much frowned upon by everyone ever but these are just flavorful things in addition to an (optional) item more monetarily clear.


*I don't might sing
**Treasuring not guaranteed.

EDIT: I'm putting a 2 month "cooldown" on this prize. That is, if someone has claimed it, one has to wait until it can be claimed again. This is more for the song part and less for the steam part, but I'm going to just apply this logic to everything. :) Furthermore, 8-timers can claim this prize, but only one of the three. 8-time claiming also triggers the aforementioned cooldown.

I also would like to add Skell Prize:

I will gift these games from GoG.com (each game can be only selected once, and are subject to GoG's availability):

- Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga, Baldur's Gate 2 Complete, Icewind Dale Complete, Icewind Dale 2 Complete or The Temple of Elemental Evil (like above)

Of course I'm still up for it! Shoot me some contact info to the email you already have (your steam account, namely) and give me ~ a week to fulfill the music bit.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Pearls Prize can be claimed again, if that's allowed, by future contest winners.

EDITOR'S SECOND NOTE: Now that THE GOODS have been delivered, feel free to heckle Jatopian for the song.

Here's what Pearls recorded for that portion of my prize. I rather like it. Reminds me of something, but I'm not sure what.

Anyway, I'm posting it here so everyone can listen to it, and so that if you're a first-place prizewinner and the Pearls Prize appeals to you, perhaps this sample can help you decide. This is all Pearls - he asked me what kind of music I like and I'm sorry to say I was staggeringly unhelpful, but he came through anyway.

I've been playing piano for some time, before ultimately giving up due to lack of physical space after moving, lack of time and lack of passion. I sincerely envy you sir.

Sure it's possible! Done -- just click on the Downloads link at the top, and you will see a CaravelNet Downloads section with links to download the game.

Am I allowed to be too excited by the idea of getting a sappy, love-soaked song?

It will be great. I'll play it loudly whenever I leave the house and prance to all my destinations. No one will be safe from the sappy love-prance.

But really, take all the time you need. It'll be lovely!

Asus E35 M1-M Pro motherboard. The image I uploaded is too large to go inline. Just click the link to the left if you want to see it.

This is one of the all-in-one motherboards that includes CPU. It's got HDMI output and USB3 ports. Well, you can Google the specs. I would say it beats ass on your typical netbook, but is not up there with gaming rigs. You can make a good mid-range workstation out of it or a multimedia server. To get from this to a full working system, you'll need a case, power supply, some RAM, and a hard drive. (Unless you want to boot off a USB stick) The thing is nearly brand new. I ordered it incorrectly thinking it was Mini-ITX form factor, so I can't use it.

I will ship it to you.

Available to 8-timers and 1st-prizers.

Like this, but with a shiny thing inside!
So I came across this the other day going through my CD collection -- I ended up with two copies a few years back and they both went in the pile together. Apparently it's out of print now, which means it's prize-worthy!

This is exactly the same Deadly Music of Death Volume 1 that you can buy digitally here, but on a shiny plastic thing. Volume 2 not included. Call it a collector's item, unless Mike decides to burn or press some more.
