If Yaks Could Talk: Faeria Caption Contest 3
Results: The Yaks have spoken!
The third Caption Contest has come to an end. The Rakoans have been honking the horn on their tank all day for each and every caption submitted. Those little guys loved them!! I'm sure they'll be making songs out of these captions to listen to on their car radios. Once again, it was hard to pick the top three. But take a look for the top three placers as well as for the Honorable Mentions.
How did we judge?
Three judges: Akagisha, Atmaz, and J0k3se Method: Each judge secretly picks their favorite top five. When all judges have picked, they reveal to each other their choices. The picks that are shared among the judges are the winners! Plus some discussion. If there aren't enough shared captions, then I (Akagisha) will pick the final winner.
1st place: 2500 in-game gold + 1 Pandora Coin
2nd place: 1000 in-game gold + 1 Pandora Coin
3rd place: 1 Pandora Coin
If you are in one of the top three, please send a private message in Discord to Lucas #7561 (Akagisha) to claim your prize! OR you may send a private message to uwlryoung on Reddit.
Without Further Ado, the winners!
"At least we know we're going the right way!"
It really is great to think about adorable little Rakoans slowly making their way through the forest in their bulky but fashionable vehicle, and under the duress of attack, they are still just positive and optimistic. This caption does well to show their merry enthusiasm. Keep truckin' little guys!
"This Rakoan war machine often doubles as a transport for the entire family."
This caption paints a wonderful picture of not just war, but family. A vehicle safe enough that even parents would trust in it to protect their little children. Look out for the carpool lane! Not only that, this caption adds a little bit of lore to the world of Rakoans within Faeria.
"When traveling to Meroval, always be prepared for an ambush from the notorious bandit Rakoan Hood!"
We all love Rakoans. We all love Robin Hood. We all love men in tights (maybe). It's a perfect combination and certainly these little guys look like the rag tag team (in fashion) to steal from the rich and give to the poor! This was just a fun caption, and a contradiction of, how could something so cute be notorious?!
Congrats to the winners, Sulphur, Aasgier, and skorch13. Fantastic captions! The Yaks are pleased.
There were many other fantastic captions that we couldn't just leave out! Here are a few of the honorable mentions in no particular order.
"Behold the apocalyptic devastation of the mighty Hilltop Archer!"
A funny and exaggerated look at Hilltop Archer raining down on the Rakoans. It's funny to think that to a Rakoan, those three arrows were apocalyptic devastation. They must think their vehicle to be the perfect safe haven!
"Don't worry guys! I'll just stab any arrows that come at me!"
Another funny quote about arrows, making it seem like the arrows are even more damaging (and alive) than they actually are. We can't get enough of Rakoan cute naivety!
"It's raining arrows, but they still can't agree on who should be driving"
Yet again, another quip at the arrows! Come on, guys! Gotta get out of that rainstorm! Just agree on someone to 'Rakoan' the tank already!!
"Contestant #6 of the annual "Oversky Soap Box Derby": The Rakoan Rowdies"
This is no war... it's a RACE! A great perspective change, and a nostalgic throwback to little rascals, Simpsons, and any Soap Box Derby we may have seen in media, or experienced in person. Good luck on the road, little guys!
"Rakoan armored convoys are notorious for being completely devoid of actual armor. Instead, these vehicles depend on gaudy colors and dubious trinkets to intimidate attackers with their "superior" fashion sense."
Rakoans are not only blessed with being adorable, they have stellar fashion sense and apparently, it's their main tactic in disengaging the enemy! Cute and NOT deadly!
Thank you to my fellow judges who are willing to take the time, Atmaz and J0k3se! And thank you to Abrakam for providing the in-game prizes. And again, thank you to the community members of Faeria. You all really are a creative bunch and really make Faeria a great game to around in!
