To celebrate the holidays, the Spicy Life and Spicy Economics guilds are holding an Eastmarch Housing Build Challenge, open to ALL on the PC/NA server! The challenge? Create something fun, creative, or otherwise wowing using ONLY the unique furnishings from the Eastmarch furniture vendors!

These vendors are located in Fort Amol in Eastmarch, just South of the wayshrine:

So go there and talk to Frohilde Snow-Hair to pick up any number of each of these uniquely Eastmarchian furnishings:

You may also use up to 1 of each of the Eastmarch Achievement Furnishings, purchasable from Listens-to-Sea:

Pick one of your homes, make it a blank slate, and use the Eastmarch furnishings to create... anything! It can be an object, scene, person, animal, etc. It can be a recreation, an interpretative take, or something entirely new. It can also be purely artsy and decorative. Have fun with it!

HOW TO ENTER:

To enter, send an in-game mail to @JHartEllis with the type of home your entry is in (e.g. "Snugpod"), and you may include a BRIEF description if necessary to explain the build. Make sure JHartEllis has Visitor access for judging. It is not necessary to set the home to your primary, and you do not need to be present during judging. Send your entry mail before before 1pm ET on January 2. Enter early, and finish your build before judging begins.

PRIZES:

3 Winners for MOST CREATIVE
3 Winners for MOST FUN
3 Winners for MOST WOWING
3 Winners for HOLIDAY SPIRIT
Each of the 12 winners will receive 175,000 gold on the PC/NA server!

Judging will be streamed Wednesday, January 2 starting at 6pm ET at twitch.tv/jhartellis

Good luck, and happy building!

    FAQ:

    Q: Can I use lights?
    A: Since there are no light sources among these furnishings, you may add some subtle lighting so long as the light furnishings and particle effects are not visible.

    Q: Can I use the Rough furnishings from Frohilde?
    A: No, just use the uniquely Eastmarchian furnishings from this post's screen grabs.

    Q: Can I use pets, mounts, or collectibles?
    A: No, just the Eastmarch furnishings.

    Q: Does it have to be holiday themed?
    A: No, there will be 3 prizes for holiday-themed builds, but this is not necessary. I anticipate most builds not being explicitly holiday-themed.

    Q: My home is really big, what do?
    A: For the sake of judging, keep your build in one area. Make a clearly marked path to your build if it is not visible from the entrance. Block off unused rooms or pathways.

    Q: What if I'm on a different server?
    A: This can be a fun, quick challenge regardless. Feel welcome to post screenshots of your build here on the forum, though we don't currently have means for prizes for these.

    Have to wait to see the surprise!

    @JHartEllis talked about this contest on stream tonight - it's supposed to be low key! Take 30 minutes, an hour, throw something together quick. Doesn't have to be elaborate. I love the Eastmarch trees, and had a lot of fun with this build.
