Thank you very much to everyone who participated in the mugshot contest! My partner in crime, Hymne of Cosmetic Lotro, and I very much enjoyed seeing your shamefaced villains in their booking shots and reading their rap sheets!
Without further ado, I’m pleased to announce the perps and their sentences… I mean, the winners and their prizes!
Mugshot 1st Prize (1500 Turbine points)
Runcible of Snowbourn
Runcible Spooner has had his knuckles rapped for a Boardinghouse Reach violation and dishing up dessert with a non-regulation spoon. In addition to incarceration, his super-sized spoon has been confiscated.
Mugshot 2nd Prize (1000 Turbine points)
Margeylane of Brandywine
Margeylane delivered a terrible-tasting pie to the guards at Bree Jail and was nabbed on counts of Criminal Culinary Craft and Purveying of Potash Pudding. Yuck!
Mugshot 3rd Prize (500 Turbine points)
Dhelin of Estel
Dhelin, barber to all dwarves under the mountain, had a bit of a drinking problem and an unsteady hand, causing his shears to slip while trimming a customer’s beard. The victim was shorn too short and deeply shamed. Stripped of his clothes and his pride, Dhelin was imprisoned in a dank cave.
Crime Story Prize (“The Sociable” title and account-wide Cremello steed)
Thego of Firefoot
Thego was trying to impress the ladies, as he often did. This time his eye had been caught by Rosemary, a hobbit-lass working at the Prancing Pony. “Every woman likes cats”, Thego thought, and so he scouted around Bree, looking for one. He came across a house full of cats, and sneakily carried one off. “She has so many, she won’t notice if I take one,” he thought. Little did he know it was the cat lady’s favorite, Horatio, that he had stolen. It was only after sitting in jail for two days that he found out Rosemary was allergic to cats.
Please note that the crime stories have been summarised, except for our winning crime story from Thego of Firefoot, which appears in full as originally written.
Convicts winners, please check your email and enjoy your prizes!
I hope you all enjoyed this contest, and a big thanks to my co-host Hymne as well as Turbine, who supplied our prizes. I’ll be back with a new outfit next Wednesday 10 July, so until then, happy outfitting!
