Good afternoon, Malton. It's good to see you all here. You've been doing a great job!

Because you're doing so well, I've decided to reward you in the very best way I know how. I'm going to be handing out stars!

۞ - Blue Stars are like the pennies of stars. They're worth one Blue Star.


۞ - White Stars are like the dimes of stars. They're worth ten Blue stars, and one tenth of a Red star.


۞ - Red stars are like the dollars of stars. They're worth ten white stars, and one hundredth of Genuine Happiness.


- Genuine Happiness is equivalent in value to one hundred Red Stars.

I wish I had enough stars to give you all Genuine Happiness... but unfortunately, supplies are limited. I will only be handing out a maximum of two hundred stars per month, based on the outcomes of arbitrary contests.

Luckily, stars are transferable! That's right- you don't have to win some arbitrary contest to work towards Genuine Happiness, you just have to be able to con people who have won such contests into giving up their loot!

Arbitrary Contests:
  • Beg for your happiness- First person to hit me up for stars in-game wins! Find me in-game, and ask me for stars. If you're the first one there, you get fifty red stars- putting you well on the way to Genuine Happiness! Runners-up will receive arbitrary sums not to exceed ten red stars per entrant, and of at least five blue stars.
  • Weekend Fireworks Display- This is a team challenge! Pick any monument you want, and fire some flares into the air. The team presenting the largest fireworks display this weekend (as evidenced by a screenshot showing a number of flares fired from a single monument after midnight tonight, but before midnight sunday) will win a whopping 100 red stars! The stars will be awarded to whoever posts the screenshot- it's your team's responsibility to decided how to split them up. I will not be investigating allegations of fraudulent reporting (e.g., taking a picture of somebody else's show and claiming it's your own), because that also fulfills the demands of the challenge.

    The screenshot doesn't need to be taken at the monument, so long as the coordinates line up with a monument.

how many stars do I start with? I assume a lot because I am awesome

Posted by: The bluefish Aug 15 2009, 02:13 AM
You get five red stars for the first post. Congratulations, Anime Sucks!

Anime Sucks: +۞۞۞۞۞

Only 155 Red Stars left, folks!

EDIT: and because it looks like more this way, here it is in white stars.

Do I get extra stars for being your alt? Also, for being The Red Star? ohmy.gif

This is a pretty interesting concept.

I am quite fond of shiny new things, Pray tell me Mr Bluefish in what form may one use said stars and whereabouts are you so I my ask you in person without having to search for you as I am prone to bouts of lazyness.

Posted by: Anime Sucks Aug 15 2009, 02:56 PM
I think I will hold a contest for the stars I just got

Posted by: The bluefish Aug 15 2009, 07:31 PM
I'm in Old Arkham. And Anime, I think that would be a great idea! Everybody try to get Anime's stars!

Posted by: Jelly Otter Aug 15 2009, 10:35 PM
May I eat the stars?

I have this horrible feeling that if I move this to the Spam pit, someone is going to convince an Admin or one of the Pit Mods that it belongs in UD Gen Chat.

Bluefish, please drink some of your own koolaid.

i wanna star!

۞۞۞۞۞ - Zenburg gets five blue stars.

۞۞۞۞۞ - Amber gets five blue stars.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞- nine white stars for Jelly Otter.


۞۞۞۞ - four red stars for DT! Good job DT! This is not a bribe! ( wink.gif )

Starboard thus far:

Anime Sucks: ۞۞۞۞۞
Doctor Tom: ۞۞۞۞
Jelly Otter: ۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞
Amber Waves: ۞۞۞۞۞
Zenburg: ۞۞۞۞۞

Moomin Troll gets my exact location, which he may use to win an arbitrary contest, or sell to the highest bidder. That's all the stars for begging! Only 150 left, and those can only be obtained by winning an arbitrary contest!

EDIT: Oh, except for those other 40 stars, which were stolen by math gremlins who attacked my brain. I have recovered them, but have not yet decided how to use them.

190 stars total left in the bank.

Posted by: moomin troll Aug 16 2009, 04:08 PM
Ah wonderful Mr Bluefish, I shall see you soon!

Posted by: Jelly Otter Aug 16 2009, 11:29 PM
So if I have 9 white stars and I eat them how many do I have?

Do they digest? >.>

Posted by: pakopako Aug 17 2009, 03:52 PM
Can we trade and gamble away what stars we have?

There are four dead bodies here. You recognise the bluefish amongst them.

Alas you are down and not able to here my witty banter for which you would have showered me with stars aplenty!

I would repeat it but I feel it would not do it justice in this medium.


Also I have not an Iwit to prove the fact I was there but as I already knew where you were and that you where now amongst the undead... I feel trust should play its due part.

Or I can just try again tomorrow, Which ever is good for you.

Posted by: The bluefish Aug 17 2009, 08:57 PM
Alas, alack! The rules are set. I am but a humble instrument of truth.

Of course, technically the rules don't require that I hear you... or that you prove your claims... a persuasive falsification would even satisfy the demands, as I understand them.


Fifty stars to Moomin Troll! Whoopee!

I keep telling you, I'm not a math gremlin dammit!

Bountied in the street for his stars? What is Malton coming to?

Posted by: The bluefish Aug 18 2009, 07:23 PM
Bountied in the street for stars? That's brilliant!

Okay, since nobody won the fireworks contest: the remaining 140 stars will be awarded as bounties!

You don't have to kill anybody in particular... heck, you don't even have to kill anybody! Just bring me the bodies!

Spray paint a red star (just the words will do) above a body or pile of bodies (this is to ensure the screenshot was taken for the challenge), and I'll award you one red star for every dead body in the screen shot, until we break the bank. Only screenshots from one of your own characters are admissible, and only one award per screenshot.

Something about this reminds me of the Faerie fountain in "The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past" in which you throw rupees. Once you throw 100 in they say that you will have genuine happiness. You also get to carry more bombs. Is this all a coincidence? Because that was one of the best, if not the best video games ever.

You spray "He be a picture of a red star underneath the entire dead population of Malton"


Does that count?







Disclaimer... I did not really spray this I just thought I would chance my arm so to speak...did it work?
