October housing contests open to PC/NA & PC/EU, UPDATED with Prizes

JHartEllis from the ESO Stream Team is happy to host several contests this October! These are open to all on PC/NA and EU! Tours of these will be streamed each Sunday at 3pm ET at twitch.tv/jhartellis.

October 6 - Falling for Fall

Make a beautiful autumn scene OR make a falling death trap. Tricky thing here is that it shouldn't be obvious when first entering the home which of the two it is! Obscure the build a bit--a home with steep cliffs or slaughterfish will probably be a good choice for this to keep JHart guessing.

"... or will JHart land with a thud?"

Prizes: Top 3 fall season theme builds and top 3 falling death traps will each get 200,000 gold on PC/NA or PC/EU. Element of surprise will factor in heavily!

October 13 - Housing or Bust Build Challenge

Make a something out of ONLY dungeon/trial busts and/or trophies! Get creative with your Undaunted dungeon rewards and make something fun or creative! These are specifically the Undaunted Busts and Undaunted Trophies categories. Since none of these are light sources, you may add subtle lighting as long as the lighting furnishings aren't visible. Similarly, FX should not be a major visible component of the build. It's okay to have things in the background as long as it's clear they aren't part of the build.

Bust monster is one of many possibilities

Prizes: Top 3 goofy builds and top 3 serious builds will each get 200,000 gold on PC/NA or PC/EU.

October 20 - Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Decorate a pumpkin! You can use ANYTHING for this, but small details are going to key since the pumpkins are all pretty small. Winter squash is probably going to be your biggest canvas to work with, but you can use any pumpkin-like base (something like a potato can also work). The "head" is all that will count for this contest--anything below the neck will be pretended away for prizes. Please only ONE pumpkin per person unless you are doing a group build like a boy band.

Small facial details will be the most important part of this contest

Prizes: Top 3 goofy builds and top 3 serious builds will each get 200,000 gold on PC/NA or PC/EU.

October 27 - NPC Costume Contest

Make a Halloween costume for a fidgety NPC! This can be a merchant, banker, alfiq, target skeleton, or any pet or mount! So make Tythis a dapper cowboy, or make Ezabi a be-caped superhero, or whatever you can imagine! Make the costume work for when the model is at its least fidgety state.

Prizes: Top 2 spooky costumes, top 2 goofy costumes, and top 2 stylish costumes will each get 200,000 gold on PC/NA or PC/EU.

HOW TO ENTER:

Two ways to enter:

1) Send an in-game mail to @JHartEllis. Include which contest you are entering (e.g. "Falling for Fall") and the home type (e.g. "Kragenhome"). You may include a BRIEF description if necessary to explain your build.

2) OR, reply to this thread along with the server you are on (NA or EU) and include the contest type and which home it is in, and you may include a longer description and screenshots.

Make sure JHartEllis has Visitor access for the tours. It is not necessary to set the submission as your primary, and you do not need to be present during the streamed tour. Get your entries submitted before 1pm EDT each respective Sunday. Enter early (earlier the better). If you have EHT FX, publish them to the community or mail them in-game to JHartEllis

PRIZES:

There will be big winners for each contest (see above for details on each), and winners can be on PC/NA or PC/EU. Prize winners will be determined based on creativity, fun factor, and screenshotability. All other entrants will receive small participation prizes.

We'll have several prizes for Twitch chat participants during the streamed tours each Sunday, including many ESO Stream Team game codes for pets, Crowns, and more. Tune in for the tours, get some decoration inspiration, and enter for prizes!

Have fun with these, and have a great October!

    If that's necessary for animation triggers, sure. Just let me know if I need to visit earlier or later to match your schedule.

    @JHartEllis could be fun to have a "Legendary" housing contest where a person may only have 1 of each item name in their house. It will be a complete mishmash to even set up a dining room table with different chairs :open_mouth:

    I think it's super cool that you and the housing community put these contests together. With that said, it would be nice to not have such specific building criteria for at least one of the contests. Building something only out of busts/trophies... Pumpkin contest... Npc costume contest... All cool ideas that I'm sure will appeal to many but way to narrowed for me personally.

    @JHartEllis - You said no visible lights on the bust challenge so lights can be inside it as long as they arent seen?
    Also does this include brazers on the ground or an fx spotlight so details can be seen at night?

    There are lots of broader contests, too, but these are super specific to be challenging. A bunch of us have been around the block a few times and different types of ideas like these are fun to try. But broader ones happen a LOT!

    Just give 'em a try, even if too specific for you. You may find you're really good at it!

    I'd like to enter my Psijic Villa into the "Build something out of busts only" contest.

    @DJfriede on PC EU.

    It is my primary for now.

    How to find it:

    - On the outside go up the left stairs up to the rock formation. There is an island floating in the air, made of coldharbour rocks. You can get up there via the leaning tribunal altar. Just jump/walk on it and move upwards around the rock. On the "island" you will find my little wormy friend. :)
