    The Tempmas season continues, I hope everyone had a good warm-up for their think-muscles because this event is all about creativity! There's no better way to share holiday cheer than sending postcards to your close ones. The best kind of card is one that comes from the heart, that's why we're tasking you with creating a Tempmas card that will really spread the holiday spirit! Just to be clear, you don't have to be the next Van Gogh to participate - we'll be judging the amount of effort and creativity, not necessarily skill. How you create the card is up to you - you can use crayons, you can use Photoshop, you can use anything in-between, including pasta and glue. We'd like to see a card that shows what Tempmas means to you - a card that reflects our community and all of the good times we've had together over the course of the years. Because this event requires handiwork, we're going to give you ample time to prepare - this contest will last for three whole days, until December 22th 10PM GMT. Since the task is harder, the rewards are bigger too ($25, $20 and $15 gift card of choice), for the three best submissions we receive! In order to participate, post your postcard (see what I did there?) in the thread so we can all enjoy the fruits of your hard work - work which will be rewarded with whole 3 points towards the final raffle!

    With the event announcement out of the way, it's time to announce the correct answers and the winners of event #2 - the great Dragon Quest for Dragon Injectors!

    Here are the correct answers:
    1. The final boss of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim was Alduin, the World Eater! Turns out that villainy bit the World Eater right in the tail!
    2. The remastered trilogy of Spyro games which reignited the series after a long string of Skylander games is called Spyro Reignited Trilogy - how fitting!
    3. Mario crashed Bowser's and Peach's wedding, which capped a very memorable odyssey.
    4. This question caused some confusion - we were specifically referring to Final Fantasy games, and as far as those are concerned, Bahamut debuted in the first installment and served the function of upgrading the player's class upon receiving a Rat's Tail. Dragons are quite sagely, I can see how they could teach characters new tricks, for a price.
    5. The Queen of the Land and the King of the Skies are named Rathian and Rathalos respectively - those pesky wyverns are as majestic as they are dangerous!
    And here's our list of winners:
    1. @GameSystem
    2. @Diamondback2010
    3. @HaloEffect17
    Congratulations to all of the winners - you will be contacted by our elves shortly in order to get your shipping details! Once again we want to thank @MatinatorX for sponsoring the event and making the holidays that much more merry! We hope that everyone will continue participating in this Tempmas season, and most importantly, that you'll all keep on Tempin'!

    EDIT: In an unexpected turn of events one of the winners, @GameSystem, has decided to generously add his prize back into the prize pool, which means that we now have a 4th prize this time, a Dragon Injector! Woo-hoo!

    I do apologise, it appears that an elf ate a part of my post. It's been re-submitted, now with extra puns!

    @Foxi4 I don't have a Switch, so am I allowed to gift my prize to whoever I think makes a nice Tempmas postcard? Think of it as a bonus prize or a 4th place.

    Absolutely, we have a contingency for that - our elves will explain everything to you in the PM as soon as they stop procrastinating. :P

    The 3rd question should have been worded differently. I understood it as a crash, as in the odyssey stopping working.

    We've ran art events for Tempmas in previous years - you can look up entries from past events to draw inspiration from, as long as you don't cheat and resubmit entries - we will know. We always know. :lol:
    Every quiz needs at least one trick question - we specifically meant an event, not a vessel. On the bright side, this time around 81.6% of participants answered correctly, so our second quiz was significantly easier than the first where only 46.3% of respondents answered correctly. Elves are good at math. :P
