Thanks to all the participants, voters, and to my honorable members of the jury! 😉
Let’s go for the top 4, Scenario’s Choice, and then we’ll see who won a Best House trophy (5th to 10th positions).
#4 – Laurel
Khelsi (7): “I love the concept and the execution!”
Prunaprismia (8): “A very nice garden, I really like the statue of Luthien with the stars, it’s a very good idea! The memory walls are very nice but in my opinion a more “natural” rendering would have been just as nice!”
Audience Average: 7.5 – Jury Average: 7.2 – Overall Score: 7.38
#3 – Aenhir
Khelsi (9): “I love the peaceful atmosphere of it, and it’s a nice change from the libraries we usually see. Bilbo adds a little life to the picture, very nice realization!”
Kaels (8): “A very nice library to which the floor brings something different from what we usually see in those places, and what a joy to find dear Bilbo!”
Edward (8): “Very nice set, full of ideas. The stairs to get to the terrace seem a bit tricky to me, but the idea is great.”
Audience Average: 7.4 – Jury Average: 8.2 – Overall Score: 7.72
#2 – Elainos
Prunaprismia (9): “I also laughed a lot while discovering the Galaxy Bowling 😀 an overflowing imagination which combines with a superb execution, it is very successful!”
Yao (9): “I laughed when I saw this. A very original creation and a great use of the Decorative Walls.”
Kaels (9): “A lot of originality for this creation, very well done. The initial idea was a bit crazy, but it works very well !”
Edward (7): “I didn’t expect it. We have to admit that it’s a success. Only the scoreboard and the refreshment stand are missing.
Bravo for the originality.”
Audience Average: 7.6 – Jury Average: 8 – Overall Score: 7.76
#1 – Elrandor
Prunaprismia (10): “Perfection. Great work, great imagination! I’m completely amazed by the final result, you could totally find this spa in a secret room in Aldburg! The walls are very well used and optimized to create the benches or braziers, it’s really perfectly in the theme. I will visit this spa in game, bravo!”
Yao (9): “That’s exactly what I wanted to see with those new Decorative Walls : something new, something we don’t currently have in-game. Bravo Elrandor.”
Kaels (10): “A very nice work on this spa combining simplicity and refinement. The geometry of the place is perfect and the details are awesome. One could quite find this spa in-game, to recover from our emotions after a mounted-combat session.”
Edward (9.5): “It’s amazing. It is very successful, I see myself well after a day of riding. I have nothing to complain about.”
Khelsi (10): “It is very original in addition to being extremely well done, it makes you want to take a dip!”
Audience Average: 7.34 – Jury Average: 9.7 – Overall Score: 8.28
Scenario’s Choice : Zicky
Scenario (LotRO Lead World Builder and Housing Master) :
“There were a lot of great entries for this contest, and very creative uses of the new Decorative Walls. The bowling alley in particular made me laugh when I saw it!
For my judging method, I focused heavily on the layouts that felt like the kinds of spaces we ourselves might build, with the use of deco objects providing a finished detail to the scene.
Zicky’s submission, ultimately, got my vote. In constructing the Tomb of the Forgotten Dwarf-Lord, it felt like they were adding a sense of dark adventure to their home – with the dragon skulls and cobwebs adding a sense of foreboding to the space. It’s not overly detailed but seems appropriately well-appointed for its setting.
And it makes me really want to make a bunch of cobweb deco objects for you all!”
