Welcome to the hallowed halls of Mythic Dawn High.

This ancient institution has spent several millennia educating students of varying species to help them fulfil their fullest potential and to help them embrace their futures. From ghouls to werewolves, from angels to demons, and everything in between, it is our mandate to teach and protect our pupils. Our curriculum ranges from Potions to Advanced Charms, from Astronomy to Mythical Cultures, with exceptional staff here to help bright young minds through this time of their lives.

So, welcome to your new life here at Mythic Dawn High.

- Teen Sims only, be it male, female, or hermaphrodite.
- Follow the S2C Contest Rules.
- No Sim-stealing.
- Up to two entries per person allowed.
- If you need to leave the contest before the end for whatever reason, PM me. Do not leave without any word.
- No photoshopping.

Additional Information

- Extensions may be granted, depending on the circumstances.
- There will be no eliminations.
- This contest will be focused on your Storytelling abilities, not how beautiful your Sims are, so be as creative as you want!

Name: Zykina Sibylla

Species: Xrsal

Brief Biography: I was created in what I believe humans like to call the "Sombrero Galaxy", but to me my home is ASCII. I had a peaceful life there, and I still do not understand why my Zexu's (I think they're called "parents" here) decided to visit this planet. They tell me that they did it to provide a better life for me, but these strange creatures called "humans" are just...nauseating. I've never seen such bizarre beings in my entire life span. But I am willing to adjust to the change and I enjoy meeting new beings in this institution.

Any special requirements: It is necessary that I empty my drozinus every 6 hours, failure to do so will result in combustion

Although miniature toy robots are nothing like the 20ft. tall robots back at ASCII, recreating them makes me feel closer to home and is a hobby I really enjoy.

Nice work, novemberlove!:D I've finally figured out how to label hyperlinks, thanks to an IRC friend, so I've added you to the list.

Because a couple of people have asked, Special Requirements are just an interesting fact, such as vampires might have 'must have a daily portion of blood at lunch and must not be placed at a desk next to the window'. Something to make you think.;)

(I hope I could cope up with this contest--school's a chore!)

Name: Spectra Orpheus

Species: Morpheans

Brief Bio: I was created in the 2,423,244th star created in the Andromeda Galaxy, Syxillion. I was curious to know about my race, the Orpheans. Then we went to this planet...Sphlex! (Darn in Morphican, our dialect) And I thought I was getting a larger wardrobe! Seriously, human fashion is--trashy. And their culture is so complex--might it be too much for one Morphean? That's why I came to Mythic Dawn High--to learn about different races and accept differences. It might be a bumpy ride, but I know this schoolyear will be one maspellian (Awesome in Morphican) time!

Any Special Requirements: As far as me being red is concerned, I am terribly allergic to what humans call "Chili Con Carne". The taste of it is horrible, and it makes my face inflate.

Nice to have you aboard 1306! Added you to the list. Now for some more species, we need some home-grown species to defend the title of best student from these two aliens! ;)

Any judges willing to judge, or people willing to donate prizes, PM me. We still need 3 judges.

Name: Alenia Forgwarth

Species: Half-Whitean, Half Human,

Brief Biography: I lived on the sun until I was 12, as do all Whiteans, and then I joined my father on planet Earth, I lived with him for three years, but the looks from strangers were too much, and my human father, feeling pity for me, sent me to Mythic Dawn High, where there would be other individuals in my situation.

Any special requirements: I must only drink ketraphid water. Anything else will make my throat close up, it's an allergy unique to my race.

(http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj274/elpemmy/freeshotalenia.jpg) - I love sport! Jogging is my fave, but the bike machines at the gym are awesome too. We never had them on the sun. We had hardly anything on the sun. It's the one good thing about humans.

Hope that's okay! The other entries are gorgeous!

Yep, that's fine emspp! I'll add you to the list. :)

Ironically, the one race I didn't think about when writing this was aliens, and now there's three! I thought of dragons, demons, angels, ghosts, sprites, mermaids and men, vampires, werewolves, etc, but no aliens. Goes to show you, doesn't it :D

This does look like a fun contest :D In my head (which is where Whitean comes from) a Whitean is a sort of wierd angel. Very pale, almost white skin, red eyes and red hair. And she's part human too... Hopefully we'll get some other cool characters. This is gonna be great, it's such a unique idea for a contest!

SilentPsycho
21st Jul 2008, 6:05 PM
Thanks, I got the idea from all the contests I joined that said "Sims don't have to be human", but usually it was only me or me and one other person actually used a non-human Sim.

Name: Celeste Smith
Species: Alien/human
Brief Biography: My father is of an unknown alien race, dropped off on my grandparents' doorstep three months after my grandfather was abducted while stargazing. My mother, fully human, fell in love with Mr Tall Dark and Handsome the moment he stepped into English class on their first day of high school. I was born several years later. Despite my and my father's strange skin color, I've lead a perfectly normal life many human girls can only dream of. Now, as I enter high school, I'd like to broaden my horizons as it were and get to know some others who are not of full (or any) human parentage.
Any special requirements: None.

Name: Nathan Mattix
Species: Vampire
Brief Biography: Until recently, I was always the shy one in class, and people would take advantage of this and pick on me. I never had the courage to stand up for myself, but then one night as I was walking home, something strange happened. I passed out, and when I awoke I was completely different. Long story short…something turned me into a vampire. A creature that is feared by everyone. Which is why I’m transferring to Mystic Dawn High. Some may think of this as a curse, but I needed this change, and the new power I hold is gratifying.

Any special requirements: May I request that all classes be held in the basement or windowless rooms. And I only drink the blood of animals.

Please help! Our son is in desperate need of a good education!

Name: Fergus Rice
Species: Of good Elvish stock
Brief Biography: Our beautiful son was blessed by an angel’s visit when he was just a baby. We are convinced that he was bestowed with “special gifts” after this marvellous event, but so far it looks like all he was given was a heightened sense of mischief! He can do all sorts of tricks no other elves are capable of – he can become invisible, walk on ceilings and he is becoming increasingly apt at levitating. Now that he is older we don’t feel that education at his local school, or even the local Private school, would benefit him; Fergus simply needs to be in a place which can help bring out the best in him and his “gifts”.
Any special requirements: We would suggest that classroom windows and doors are firmly locked, so as to prevent him climbing onto the roofs (he seems to really enjoy doing this, for some reason).

We hope that you can teach Fergus at your wonderful High School. He really is a lovely and intelligent boy, but he does require firm treatment in the working environment.


I hope that this entry is okay. Let me know if I have to change anything. Thank you!

Name: Xena Trant (Pronounced Exna)

Species: Ramboinia

Brief Biography: I have lived on this planet since i was 7 years old. I came here with my dad looking for my mum because she had disappeared. As soon as we landed we both fell in love with the planet and decided to stay there. Because i am a teen my dad thinks it would be best that i go to a special school for non-human's. I don't know wheather to be excited or scared.

Any special requirements: At one o'clock on the dot i need to take Medicine to stop me from getting angry because when i get angry i go on fire and that could be a serious danger to other pupils.

Species: Hellcalf

Breif Biography: As a hellcalf, one of the last TRUE demons, I spent most of my life in, well, hell. My father decided that it was time the hellcalf's assimilated themselves into society, so here I am. Assimilating. Oh Joy!

Any Special Requirements: Please keep me away from other Demon's. I will fight, if they call themselves that, for they are not full demons! *grumble grumble*

Name: Myra Maines

Species: Zombie

Brief Biography: My life ended prematurely at the age of fifteen when I got pelted by a massive hail stone. I was dead and burried for three full days before I got bored and clawed my way back to the surface. Turns out, my tight wad father had paid a measley sum to the grim reaper to bring me back to life. And sadly, I'm not quite what I used to be. For starters, I have this insane craving for brain smoothies.

Any special requirements: A good deoderant, a lot of perfume and the occasional needle and thread to keep my parts together.

Rabbit: Gahh, I love her. <3

Anyways, I got my game working and was able to put my student together.

Name: Autumn Springs

Species: Part Seasalpan and part human

Brief Biography: My father is the world-renowned astronomer Jacob Springs, and my mother, a native of the Third Sector of Seasalpa. After his shocking discovery of the planet, my father insisted on joining his crew in an expedition to Seasalpa. What they discovered was a world separated into four portions, each entirely themed by one of the four seasons. In the Third Sector, themed after Fall, he fell in love with my mother and jetted her back to Earth with him. Needless to say, the result of their marriage was the freak that is me. On Earth, I discovered a passion for gardening, which completely goes against the culture of my Third Sector ancestors, who worship the death of plants rather than their growth.

Any special requirements: Unlimited access to sunlight is a must, as I am half plant and undergo photosynthesis.

You're too hard on yourself. Yours is seriously amazing, no lie.

Did I ever mention that that was the hair that I planned to use for your contest [which I'm sad that I must wait for D:]? Funny, because my entry was going to be a zombie, too. XD

(Well here goes!! This is my very first contest.)

Name: Pepper Ashton

Species: Zircian

Brief Bio: On the day I was to become the ruler of my planet Zircia (located in a spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices), a deadly plague spread throughout my planet, nearly wiping it clean. My brother and I barely escaped with our lives! We spent nearly 1,000 years searching and hoping to find a new place with life, that resembled our own. We finally found this planet, and the inhabitants here are similar to those on my home planet. Since living here I've been getting a lot of negative comments from the students at the school I am attending. They all stare at me with this look, as if they've never seen anything like me before. They say I resemble a "Ball-Joint Doll" whatever the heck that is. Finally I got fed up with it, I found an article in the newspaper about your school, who accept "freaks" like me, which would make me nearly perfect for Mythic Dawn High.

Any Special Requirements: I can not join in any physical education, I get fractured easily.

1306 Yup, he's walking on the ceiling. :) The idea is that he's very mischievious and since he can do all sorts of unusual things, he gets a kick out of showing off. There he's scared his poor dad in the kitchen, causing him to drop all the food on the floor.

23rd Jul 2008, 1:02 PM
Thanks! I have about 10 different shots I was thinking of using for his Free Shot - I wanted the rogue in him to shine through, since in the entry his parents go on about how he is getting out of hand. (That's one of the reasons Fergus himself didn't write the entry - he's probably off having fun!) This was my favourite, plus it showed off one of his "gifts" quite nicely.

I simply put together two animations - one was from Nightlife, I think; and the other was from the Photobooth in Nightlife as well. So it makes it looks like he has popped up onto the ceiling and given his dad a fright, making him drop their dinner.

*Wahoot! your online!*
Before I start, May I just apologize for writing a Novel like Little Simone here?!
I just kept adding and adding! XD

------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Simone Yattle (Pronounced; Syi-Mon-ey Yaa-t-ll)

Species: ExtraTerrestrial (But He's from human mother)

Brief Biography: Simone was Never the "best" of children, He always found "Something" Hard. For instance, He was always bullied. Simone was the last person to be picked for anything, From sports to Friends. Simone is best known for his Drama involvements, He is fascinated by the art and is taking "Drama & Theatrical Studies" as his 'select' subject at his current school. (He is wishing to continue the course later)

In his spare time Simone regally is writing a book, He is a great novelist and Like his father, is always on the computer. He is a fan of Murder Mysterys and Epic Fiction. Simone's latest book "Two hearts till breakdown" is a Fiction, telling the story of an explorer from earth lost in his own mind. -Its a good read!

Simone is attempting a placement at Mythic Dawn High to expand his learning, He has fallen back with many subjects like Mathematics and Biology due to excessive problems at school. In the 7 other subjects Simone takes, He receives grades from A to C, And is always eager to attempt, or try something new.

Some say he is always having an "External" look about him, But deep inside, Simone is very human. He was enthrilled to find someone in the same situation as him, a Teen called " Johnny Smith" From Strangetown. Unfortunately contact has been left with Johnny, after the town was alienated due to Attacks and protests for "Missing Sims".

Any special requirements: None, (He's Mostly Human!), Oh, but if it is possible, with Boarding, all or any "white gold" objects must not be within 20m of the bed, Due to allergies, (Causes Skin to turn Blue and hair to go ghostly white.)

It would be a great shame for Simone not to be aloud to your school, He is very talented and although none of his extra curricular activitys regally cross with his school life, I'm sure with a little bit of luck and the barrier will break between him and other Teens.

Name: Jenette Luther (Pronounced; Jhe-Net Loo-Th-er)

Species: Human Witch (Un-Biological)

Brief Biography: Jenette (Or Jen as I like to be called) is a witch, yes, a Full Witch, And Is Darn proud of it. I was born with my intense witch-yness, but not through Genetics like some "other" witches and wizards out there, As I have a perfectly normal Family Tree, but we think its all down to my Dad's side as my Grandma's first husband was a warefolf "Apparently"..

My family is a big part of my life, I'm very close to my parents, even if they don't understand me, I love cooking with my Dad. My Mum is regally Working, she thrives in that area -She's a PA- As she's used to organizing and arranging, and she loves it! My Brother is a little strange.. You see, as me and Dad bake a lot, Mum's always there to taste whatever it is. I then got into potion making around a year before James was born. My Favorite potion was the "Stop Time" recipe, Mum was always willing to try batches of it, Despite the taste, We just didn't know she was Pregnant..

James can see the future, Not HIS future, But anyone's future, And his eyes are Bright Orange, Same shade as the potion..
James has always been fond of Architecture, He thrives in it, He even designed out house extension for my room, We want to send him to MDH When he's older, we think he has potential.

I got thrown out of my last school, "showing off" is what they called it, But actually it was me proving my witchness to a geeky girl in my old class. All I did was turn the Biology room into a Forest, Trees and all! to tell the truth, I thought that the school would Benefit from having a Jungle Classroom!
Teachers call me Trouble, Friends call me Fun.

For this last term I have been Home schooled.

It gave me much more time to work on the things I like most, Like Art and Baking, which the school offered none of in "Timetable Time". I'm a BIG fan of picture Taking;

Note from Parents: It would be tragic to see Jenette not gain admittance to your school for gifted children like her, Although she is "Earth Bounded" it would mean the best to her to meet Teens her age who have faced similar experiences.

(After one brutal hour of finding the right CC, I'm back with my second entry :smash: )

Name: Skayle Eden

Species: Skeleton (Human/Elf)

Brief Bio: My parents always told me that I was a blessing to them, I was their "perfect child". I made good grades, I was part of the popular crowd and I loved Football. My coach told me I was the best Quarterback he's had in years! My life came to an end, a few days shy of my 17th birthday...or so I thought. My dad was a mad scientist and he owned a very large laboratory, he was addicted to his research and studies, he did a lot of experiments and most of them resulted in success. One day he asked me to do him one simple favor, I didn't know that; that one simple favor would alter my life forever. He had left a neatly folded pile of towels on one of the upper floors of the laboratory and he wanted me to get them for him. Well lets just say I was in a hurry to get finished and go over to my friends house to kick his butt in a game of SSX. I fetched the towels and tried to hurry down the stairs, unfortunately for me, I tripped over my untied shoe lace and went tumbling over the railing of the stairs into a tank of hot acid. In an attempt to save me my father constructed a skeleton based off the bits of bones that was left of me, and brought me back to life. Well...here I am, skinned and bones. Of course I can never show my face at my old school again, which is why I want to enroll at Mythic Dawn High.

Any Special Requirements: I can not eat or drink anything, it gets really messy.

I'm almost upset that I can't make more creatures! Janette was going to be an "inverted" version of Simone, Normal Skin, Blue-Green natural hair, Glowing pink Eyes, And an excessive extrovert! But When I saw her in game, She just screamed "Wicked" at me! I loved thinking of her family though, Unlike Simone, who never mentions them, she seems to adore them! Witchyness is too darn cool!

name: Quinne Ridding bodyshot (http://i327.photobucket.com/albums/k446/_lynniepants/bodyshotjpg.jpg)

species: Lycanthrope, formerly Human

biography: When I came back from a hike in the woods with a bite on my hand and a tall tale about a wolf with glowing eyes, my grandma was none too pleased. She feared rabies, but the next full moon proved otherwise. She wasn't too excited about having a granddaughter with permanent fangs and yellow eyes, either, actually.

Mythic Dawn will actually be my first real high school, as Grandma had homeschooled me since she won custody when I was five. I don't think I'm very good with people as a result, but I'm sure that when everyone else is "out of the ordinary" it'll be a lot different.

requirements: A very good razor, a chef that knows how to prepare a really rare steak, and no silver objects of any kind, if you please.

Name: Lucille Rae Coleman (AKA Lucy The Rawr!)
http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f271/EdieBird/Lucy/WolfHeadshot.jpg

Species: Lycanthrope (but werewolf just sounds cooler)

Brief Biography: I'm the last surving member of my great-great-great-grandsomething Gabriel's bloodline. As such, I have to live with an overprotective vampire, who insists I wouldn't avoid trouble if it wore a nametag and bit me! Which, by the way, it did, if trouble is a fuzzy black woofer named Balin and IF trouble makes you sprout excessive body hair and develop some killer moodswings. I thought that part was just puberty, but whatever! I've had a 'ruff' time at school ever since Gabriel's been my guardian, as it's a little hard to get him to a 3 o'clock conference with my teachers. On top of that, I kind of...well, I kind of threw my ex-boyfriend into the basketball hoop and broke his arm. It's not all my fault! He should have known not to dump me at that time of the month! Hey, I mean the full moon, not whatever you're thinking. Anyway, I'm hoping to start over here, maybe make some friends who won't freak out when I steal their dog's bone.

http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f271/EdieBird/Lucy/BodyWolf-1.jpg

Any special requirements: A flea collar would be nice. Okay, not really. But I do crave big, juicy marrow bones around the full moon, they keep my teeth nice and shiny! Oh, and since my guardian is a vampire, any parent-teacher things need to be at night.

Ok, There we go, all the other 5 I made, because I was bored, Uploaded :)
-Well, The bio's at least! :)

They are quite funny, and they were hard to get into the minds of, but I did it, My personal faves are the ones with deep background stories, you may need to read them twice and re-read my other contestants to understand them, and the hidden humor, but hey, It was fun! :p :lol:

So yea, check them out! Linky (http://naturalsimsforum.com/index.php?topic=4185.msg39326#new)

Name: Cedric St. Frances IV
Species: Zombie of some sort of celestial being
Brief Biography: Not much is known about Cedric's life before he died. Found dead in a field by local children, it was thought that his untimely death was due to him falling whilst in mid flight. His severely beaten and battered torso and iron cuffs found around his wrists suggest however that he was murdered then crudely disposed of. Buried by the villagers, his grave became a place of pilgramage for those who thought the celestial creature could cure their ails and sickness.
His grave was ransacked and exhumed on the night of a full moon by an alchemist keen to harness Cedric's powers and have them under his control. The resurection was a success but Cedric was not the submissive slave the alchemist had hoped for. Being taken away from the only place he had experienced peace enraged him, he killed the alchemist and virtually destroyed the village without a second thought. Every now and then he is somewhat remorseful of his actions, but remembering the constant pain and toment he lives in, and vaguely remembering that the power he posesses is only a fraction of his strength before he died, dispells this feeling quickly enough.
He hopes attending Mystic Dawn high will provide him with finally feeling like he belongs somewhere.
Any special requirements: Cannot participate in gym because of rigor mortis, should avoid intense sunlight and salt water, should not be left near arrows (It was thought at one time that he was a cherub as he did seem to have a need to shoot arrows at people but he has been known to throw axes, shoot, run over, or strangle others so he could just be plain sadistic.)

Name: Raum GhostTree

Species: Avar

Brief Biography: I have led a fairly simple life compared to many of the beings of the world. My kind and I travel the paths of the forests learning, listening and experiences the wonders that lay within. I come from a long line of banes, my kind's spiritual leaders, whom care for the forest and perform the rituals necessary to help the sun be reborn during yuletide and the rituals of celebration during beltide along side the Icarii enchanters. I was bonded to the mother while I was very young and now I help guide my kind's young to the loving embrace of the mother.

Any special requirements: Only time off for the holidays of Yuletide and Beltide.

You COULD just make a sim, with a (very) brief bio and update it later, and you can try giving SilentPsycho a PM, He might let you put your application in a smidge late :)

Name: Sarah Greene
Species: Chlorophyllius

Biography: I am Sarah. I am a plant. I'm of the species of chlorophyllius, named after the green pigment of plants. So basically I have a lot of human characteristics, but also have planty features, perhaps the most obvious is my green, twiney skin.

When I was at the age of 10, my whole family died during the Great Freeze. At first, it was hard to cope with the loss of my family. But in the end, I was adopted by a loving man who became my father. I still think of my parents, and still remember their faces, but father helped me go on through life.

Special requirements: Other than unlimited amounts of sunlight exposure, some shower breaks to replenish water supply and a room with a toasty sunlamp at night, I don't have any special requirements.

Name: Annie Longbeard

Species: I'm half dwarf and half elf

Brief Biography:

I was unaware of how special I was until I turned 8 and absolutely EVERYONE outgrew me and I was still just as short as I was in preschool. I never thought that my height was weird because my dad is one of the Treebark Dwarfs and is just a bit taller than I am. We live in the Treebark Village and my dad is a druid. My mother, who is an elf, divorced my father when I was very young and went back to live with the elves, leaving me and my sister (who is very tall and looks just like an elf, I swear!) behind. My dad decided that it would be best for me to try and fit in the human society because I wouldn't be accepted with the dwarfs since my mother is an elf. I tried and I tried but I just couldn't fit in. Other kids were either teasing me about my pointy ears or how short I am or how fat I am or what a weird last name I have. I'd like to just forget that part of my life. But luckily that time of my life is over since I'm finally old enough to go to highschool. And not just any highschool, but the M.D.H. where everyone is just as unusual as I am and no one makes fun of anybody for being weird. I finally have friends and I can finally develop my elven skills and magic without being constantly afraid of getting caught.

Special requirements:
Basically, I'm short. So I can't reach stuff and everything must be adjusted so I could reach it. I'm the one who has to be lifted up so she can unlock her locker.

oooooooooooooooooooooo!! two new apps!

duderocks: She looks great! She's a bit different from my plantsim, Its funny, because yours is more... "Plant", but looks and acts more normal, whereas my girl (Who is probably by now at the circus with all of her other "freak" friends (as she puts it)) is excessively outgoing, and has had to live her life hidden from normal humans (that she so craves to be -Its sad they will now laugh at her, as she's now a "freak act" :( )


blackivy: Ahhh, so this is what you got! :p Annie looks really cool *Reminds me of Professor Flitwick in Harry potter ;) * He's the type of guy that would be put down by my elf, who is a stuck-up snobby 'Pure-Blood' -I based him on the views of the DeathEaters!

Round One

Welcome everyone to Mythic Dawn High!

As everyone knows, a good study environment is vital to a good education. While we can say that Mythic Dawn High has an excellent environment, what with our pure air charms and magical seals designed to keep annoying pests and noises away, such as blood-sucking seagulls, we want to know about your home life. Do you have any siblings that may affect your concentration? Is it a little hard writing with a pen in your underwater home? Do you have your own place where you prefer to study?

In order to properly gauge the studying environment out of school, we would like three separate pictures:

- One portrait of your family.
- One free shot of your family.
- One free shot of you in your personal study area.

Please return all assignments before 1st August, 11:30pm GMT.

Name: Originally named Treacle Valentine by first owner but has been renamed Anastasia, Clauda, Regina, Madaline and Wendy by subsequent owners.
Species: Porcelain doll.
Brief Biography: Treacle was a treasured girt for original owner Mary Valentine at the turn of the 20th century. Passed down the Valentine family as an heirloom, Treacle was treated well and loved until the most recent generations, more entertained with gadgets, make-up and boys. After being given a make over herself with felt tip pen and hair dye, she was tossed aside, left to grow dusty, her once prized doll house falling into dis repair. Treacle hopes by attending Mystic Dawn High, she can meet similar people to her and finally stop having tea parties alone.
Any special requirements: None.

Family Portrait:
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/r1-thumbs3.jpg (http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/roundone2.jpg)
My family's quite quirky, if you ask me. First there's me, in the center, and then my parents, sitting with me on the sofa. My father, Jonah Orpheus (upper left), was a foreign exchange student from Eiglyxxius, a star close to ours. He met my mother, Ysillia (upper right) while they were both high schoolers.


They got married ten months after graduating from college, and had me and my sister Adagio (lower left). Adagio got my dad's skin and my mom's eyes and hair. I took my dad's red hair and eyes, while my mom gave me the red skin.

The man to the lower right is my dad's brother and my relative, Eryk. He's relatively quiet at times, and only speaks when he needs to. He loves making robots--it's his lifestyle.

Basically, mom and dad had set up a business of growing Morphean plants, while Eryk is an engineer of one of the universe's greatest robot factories. Adagio is a writer of children's books, which may have never reached Earth, I assume. And me? Mythical Dawn High, obviously.

Family Free Shot:
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/r1-thumbs.jpg (http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/roundone.jpg)
One of our daily habits as a family is to bow down to this red porcelain ball. It was said to contain the gods, goddesses, kings and queens that made Syxillion the star it had become today. It is an heirloom, and must be protected at all costs, lest we incur the wrath of the gods. Every morning before anything else, we bow to this ball. Now if you ask me, I find it eerie to do such thing. Why not honor our predecessors in some other way? I try to reason against this, but I would not do so, for mom said speaking against our ancestors would greatly anger them and would bring misfortune. But the only misfortune I've had so far was to listen to Adagio brag about how great her books are selling back at Syxillion.

Personal Study Area Shot:
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/r1-thumbs2.jpg (http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b260/1306/roundone1.jpg)
Although most of our ways and cultures are quite ancient, we try to keep with Earth's culture and such. So that's why my parents have given me this personal study room--they say it mimics the Earthling's ways. I'd clean the clutter on the table, but I for one love a messy table. I'm not a neat freak, to start with, and my parents don't seem nagged about it. Computers on Earth seem very identical to the ones we have back at my homestar.

To be painfully honest, I rarely use the study area. But now that I've enrolled in Mythic Dawn High, I'm looking forward to using it again!

http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm171/duderocks/ScreenShot036-6.jpg

As you know, my family died in the Great Freeze. I was lucky to survive, but I lost my leafy greens (common characteristic of spore chlorophyllians. There is another kind which is produced through traditional copulation as plantpeople have human sexual organs, but they don't show their plant characteristics until adulthood).

However, I was adopted my a man named Rastavuel Greene. Since then, I have developed a very close relationship with him and despite his humanness, he suppoted and encouraged me to study in Mythic Dawn High.

Every 2 weeks, Dad and I pay respects to my parents. Unfortunately, their remains were nowhere to be seen, so they were not given a proper burial.

This is also Chlorophyllius (or in Earthly terms, plantperson) tradition, that if you haven't paid respect to the dead in the proper time, you will experience 6 years of bad luck. I had a friend back home who didn't do the ritual and he had one bad event over the other. Thank the Sun God he's fine now.

Since I need lots of sunlight for me to live, I prefer studying outdoors.If the windows are closed, I can't stay indoors for too long, or else I will turn into this murky booger-green color and die if not exposed for too long.

I'm a very environmental friendly person, so I make sure my area is clean, organized and clutter free. This is also due to the belief that the only thing that can make a plant ugly is garbage.

Zoma (my mother, in the center), Alhena, Lesath, Messia, Tureis, Zania, and Me.

Many are facinated that I have so many sisters, and they always say it must be very difficult living with so many toddlers! However, my sisters are just as intelligent as I am (or maybe even more). They take care of themselves on their own, and only need to eat once every few days. They only stay "toddlers" (we call them nebulas back home) for 85 hours, and then they grow into Alcors ("teens") like me. People are even more shocked when I explain how they were born. Well, every 5 moon cycles, my mother produces 5 more children. Their DNA and body matter is extracted through her horns and slowly takes shape outside of her. It's really fun to watch!

It wasn’t very long ago that I was their age, and sometimes I miss it. My other 26 sisters are back on my home planet, and although I wish all of them could’ve came here with me, I know I have to take advantage of this opportunity and learn as much as I can.

Ok, I totally hauled ass, for lack of better terms, to get this thing done before I leave tomorrow. As some of you know, I have a slight chance of not having internet over the next week or so, but let's hope that doesn't happen. As always, click the thumbnails for full versions.

--------

Firstly, I'd like to give a big thanks for accepting me into Mythic Dawn High! It's truely an honor.

So, this is my family. As I mentioned before, my father is the world-renowned astronomer, Jacob Springs, and my mother, the beautiful Fallena, native of the Third Sector of Seasalpa. Luckily, I had a couple shots from our family photoshoot a few weeks ago, one of which is hanging in our living room.

http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn79/blastthestereox/AutumnFamilyPortraitthumb.jpg (http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn79/blastthestereox/AutumnFamilyPortrait.png)

My father and I are both avid nature-lovers, while my mother has had a hard time straying from the Third Sector customs of worshiping dead and decaying wildlife. However, we've slowly been able to convince her to join us for a swim in the lake every once in a while. She still doesn't approve of my gardening, but at least it's a start!

http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn79/blastthestereox/AutumnFamilyFreeshotthumb.jpg (http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn79/blastthestereox/AutumnFamilyFreeshot.png)

And now it's time for a look at my study area, which happens to be my bedroom. I try to keep my workspace clear and orderly, with lots of bright, uplifting decorations to uplift and encourage me. Of course, I've made sure to set up my desk right in front of the window for optimal sunlight, as well as scattered the room with my various plants. ;D

I know it's pretty rushed and overall blahh, but it's the best I could do with everything that's going on. With that said, I must go pack! I hope I'll be able to stay in touch and check out all the other contestants.

Good luck you guys!

My grandmother is my family now, though she technically isn't related to me at all. She adopted my mother, you see. But besides all that, I've been living with my grandma Regina Hood for the better part of my life, and I've enjoyed it very much. We don't always get along that well, and she doesn't exactly understand modern teenagers (she's a bit old fashioned), but I still love her very much.

http://i327.photobucket.com/albums/k446/_lynniepants/wheeloffortune-1.jpg
One of our favorite traditions is the Full Moon 'Fortune Marathon, which Grandma invented after she discovered my "hunts" every full moon. So to keep the wildlife at a healthy level, every other full moon she and I sit down to watch late night episodes of Wheel of Fortune. Sometimes we place bets on the game, and because of that we get very... wrapped up in it, to say the least. Would you like to buy a vowel?

http://i327.photobucket.com/albums/k446/_lynniepants/study-1.jpg
But that's not to say I don't take my studies seriously! A good education is very important to me, and I study on my own quite often. My favorite time to study is right after a bath. I feel so refreshed and ready to learn, and plus no one will walk in on me if I say I'm not dressed yet- so I'm hardly ever interrupted. I used to study in the process of bathing, but the novelty of soggy textbooks wears off quickly despite the privacy.

I'm very excited to be a part of the Mythic Dawn High classes, and I am in complete gratitude for your acceptance.

Rragh. I tried to convey her nerdyness in this round, but I dunno if it comes off as such or just snobbery. Oh, and SilentPsycho, did our family portraits need to be a formal type one or is my example alright?

Round One

Welcome everyone to Mythic Dawn High!

As everyone knows, a good study environment is vital to a good education. While we can say that Mythic Dawn High has an excellent environment, what with our pure air charms and magical seals designed to keep annoying pests and noises away, such as blood-sucking seagulls, we want to know about your home life. Do you have any siblings that may affect your concentration? Is it a little hard writing with a pen in your underwater home? Do you have your own place where you prefer to study?

In order to properly gauge the studying environment out of school, we would like three separate pictures:

- One portrait of your family.
- One free shot of your family.
- One free shot of you in your personal study area.
Please return all assignments before 1st August, 11:30pm GMT.

But my app doesnt have family....

Looks like we're off to a nice start! :D Time to answer some questions.

@1306, sorry, but only one photo is allowed for the Family portrait. You could always use boolprop snapobjectstogrid false to get them closer together, then zoom in on their faces. :)

@Blast_the_Stereo, nice work getting your entry in, however you've used one too many photos, and I also want to ask you about the framed picture and how you got that in game. Remember, no photoshopping is allowed in any rounds!

@lynnie, yes the photo needs to be a formal type. Apart from that your entry is fine. :)

@kustirider2, as your Sim is alone, you could always show them on their own, and have references to any family they once had. Either that, or you could say the picture is several years old and the portrait was done before they died. You could have your Sim as a toddler, or not in the photo at all.

Also, can everyone place the name of their Sim in the title of their entries, it makes it easier for the judges to know.

Now i look after them and provide them with a warm place to live.
My cats are called: Kagor, Kachar, Ryrun, Jokja, and Jorin.

This is me and dad. I love him to bits. After mum disappeared we became closer and now i don't know what i would do without him. This photo was taken when we visited The Rose Gardens in Grenford, it was lovly there all rosy and warm, anyway back to the subject, i wish i could show you a picture of mum but we don't have one. Back where we come from camera's don't exist so just me and dad i am afraid. I have always wanted a little brother or sister but that's not really possible now.

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f173/Nicoleanddad/Familyfreeshot-1-2-1.jpg

Dad is the best cook ever. He can make ants taste nice, not that i would know what ants taste like, me? well i would burn water.... The kitchen is my favourite room in the house mainly because it's where my dad is most of the time. More about dad. He is the type of guy that most the ladies like but dad being dad is completely oblivious to this. He was IS mum's man and will always be. Dad loves mum and so do i ohh how i miss her.

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f173/Nicoleanddad/Xenastuding-1-1-2.jpg

I love to study on my bed. Weird. I know, but i love it. School is going to be a challenge, mainly because i am not the brightest spark around but i am looking forward to making friends. Home is very quiet and dad is always there to lend a helping hand so studying won't be a problem.

This was taken about a month ago when dad got a teary eye and decided to have a family portrait. So he invited a photographer to take our picture in our livingroom in our formalwear. I hated the fact that I had to wear a dress because I don't think I look good in dresses, but since it was for my dad I didn't want to nag. The photographer was a bit confused when he had to take our picture because his idea was for all of us to be standing up but then he'd have to cut off my sister's head on the picture, so she had to sit. This photo now hangs in our livingroom so everyone who comes can see it.

I love it when Sundays are dedicated to my sis vs. my dad in a soccer game. They put up two pols in the yard and dress in their soccer uniforms and play soccer during the entire day. I can't really run that fast because my legs are shorter than my dad's but I don't mind not being able to play because I'm their cheerleader for the entire day and I jump around cheering and laughing. This type of family fun makes me very happy and that's why I like Sundays in my family.

My workspace:
http://img212.imageshack.us/img212/2184/sims2ep7200807272225343xh6.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

I don't really have my own workspace because me and my sister share a desk and we had an agreement that, since I can hardly see what's on the desk's surface, my sister will be using the desk and I can study under the desk. I didn't really like that at the beginning but I love it now because I've turned it into my little corner where I keep all my books and drawings. Besides, my sister is just a desk top away. This sort of sharing is also a real space-saver for our tiny house (dwarfs usually have small houses and I guess I wouldn't mind it's size if it wasn't for my sister and big furniture that was put in the house because of her). But my sister will be moving to college in a year so I hope I'll have a bit more room.

My mom isn't camera-shy, but as in a lot of families, mom is usually the one behind the camera, so it's awesome to see her in a picture or two as well.

Unlike most of you scholarly saps, I’ve yet to make my very own “introduction” (trust mum and dad to do that for me! Geez!). I only recently saw the entry they sent off to Mythic Dawn High, and I have to say I fully agree with most everything they have written about me.
I really am a disobedient, boisterous, sarky little turd. And proud of it!

But enough boasting – let’s get this thing started! :D

When you read the name “Rice”, your mind may – or may not, whatever – have gone ping! with recognition. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, because my mum is one of the most famous journalists around. Her column, Just Ask Lulu, is the most popular in the SimCity on Sunday and I think she’s paid a fortune for the rubbish she writes (I’ve never asked, in case you were wondering. She’s not that sort of lady.)
My dad is actually a pretty nice guy, even if he spends too long with his head in the clouds, and doesn’t appreciate it when I dance on the expensive new terracotta roof. He was my mother’s second husband, and the only one who is as Elvish as she is. I don’t really know why they split up, but I bet her involvement with Fatty Fry had something to do with it.

http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/FamilyShot.jpg
(Big version here) (http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/FamilyShotBIG.jpg)

This is one of the more recent photographs – or, as we call them in typical archaic Elvish style, “stills” – of my family. I haven’t included mum’s first husband Payton or her current hubby Fry, because I guess I don’t consider them “family” like that. My dad is way too camera-shy, plus he finds it awkward to be around my mother (he’s in the next few photos, though, honest!)
But here’s my mom, older half-sister Paris, younger sister Niamh, and little half-brother Harry. I think this was taken for this year’s Mother’s Day feature for her newspaper (but really, it was just an excuse for her to get together with us kids, booze on champagne and wear an expensive dress). It was a nightmare – that daft photographer making us stand through about 20 shots, telling us all to “watch the birdie”. Moron. I have to say, though, those clothes were pretty sweet – it’s traditional Elvish dress, apparently. No tux for me, nope.

http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/DanceShot.jpg
(Big version here) (http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/DanceShotBIG.jpg)

It’s quite well-known that elves love dancing and prancing around, especially when the weather turns sunny, and I have to say that we are no exception. Even my half-sister Paris makes the long journey from the Académie to join in with one of our little dance recitals. The sun on my skin feels just fantastic, and my powers all seem super-strong after a few hours of boogying. I’m now old enough to study some of the very ancient Elvish Harvest Mantras, but it’s just as much fun doing what I want with my brother and sisters. (Though I’m closer to Paris and Niamh, of course – Harry’s just a little rich kid, really.)

Real Elves wear skin-tight spandex, baby!

http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/StudyShot.jpg
(Big version here) (http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g41/amalinaball1/StudyShotBIG.jpg)

As you may have surmised, I don’t really spend that much time indoors studying. I feel happier and healthier when I’m sitting on the roof, or maybe skirting the tops of trees when I go for my evening levitation practices in the thickets and forests near my home. That’s not to say I don’t study – obviously I do. I’m no dumbbell.
But I prefer it when I’m in a nice high space, preferably with places I can exercise my powers easily on my studying breaks. Books can teach you a lot, but not everything. Some things you need to experience, and keep on experiencing, at first-hand. Or least I think so. I spend a lot of my time thinking and looking up at the moon from my little studying corner on the roof. It's better for me than sitting at some dull little desk for hours.

Anyway, enough jibber-jabbering. I guess I'm trying to say "Thanks" for giving me the opportunity to further my education. I'd say some more - grovel, or what have you - but I'm not so good at apologies. It's so bad for my image, you know!?

Whoa, sorry it's so long. I had trouble getting it cut down. There was originally a lot more than this. But I hope it, and the pictures, are okay. I was trying to catch Fergus' Elvish lifestyle, interests and "different" studying methods. I hope it worked.

I tried very hard with the pictures and background because I was trying to make up for the fact that, although Elves are pretty cool, lots of people had far more inventive and interesting creatures. I guess I was trying to bring Fergus "up to snuff" on that ground.

This is turning out to be a really fun contest! I've really enjoyed it so far!

Eighty years ago, my great grandfather opened a small, frozen banana stand in Bluewater Village. Recently The Banana Nut Hut has become a chain, with over thirty locations in SimCity alone. Naturally, we have a lot more money that we used to. But that doesn't stop my father from being the same cheapo he's always been. I mean, look at me. A few more bucks and maybe ol' Grimmie would have put a little more effort in when he raised me from the dead.

Anyway, here's my family. Me, of course, and my step sister Adrian, my father, Ray Maines and my step witch-- I mean, step mom, Joleen. Joleen is constantly trying to convince me to go to spa she runs and let her "fix me up". She doesn't want to admit it, but she hates having me in the family because I look like such a freak.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/piratesbootyx/snapshot_b59a17bb_359b5979.jpg

Joleen loves parties, and when she can convince my dad to let her have the credit card, she throws outlandish get togethers for her clients and coworkers. Here's me at a party that litteraly cost more than my life.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v320/piratesbootyx/snapshot_b59a17bb_f59a3c2a.jpg

My study space is in my room. I have an old PC that I built myself. It still runs but it's seen better days. I have a hard time studying. It can be difficult blocking out the sound of dad and Joleen arguing about money. I can't wait to get out of this house.

Let's see...my family. Well, such as it is, anyway. Apparantly, my parents died in some freak accident that may or may not have involved the flaming bowels of Hell and a basket. A few days later while I'm minding my own business at the state home for kids whose parents died in freak accidents, this blonde guy walks through the wall and tells me that I'm his last living relative and he has a Blood-Bond to protect me. So he whisked me out through the wall. Weird feeling, that. That's Gabriel, handsome, charismatic, and a complete pain in the...err, tail. He was, once upon a time, a cowboy, bank robber, horse thief, gold prospector, and all around bad guy. He only escaped hanging by become the *deep dramatic voice* UnDead! So now he's a reformed ex-cowboy bank robber horse thief vampire.

Then there's the Old Man. He's a crazy old vampire with no name that he'll reveal. All I can work out is that he's the one that turned Gabriel all fangy and allergic to sunlight. He's a bit cranky, but I can usually get him to do whatever I want, by whining. Guess I remind him of his granddaughter. I THINK he's related to Gabriel's long-dead wife. Which, of course, makes him a relative of mine too. Just don't ask me how we're related as I really couldn't tell you!

For fun, I usually manage to drag the bloodsuckers out into the yard for a game of kicky sack. Old Man used to say it was pointless, until I got bitten by the wolf and suddenly started hunting jackrabbits at night. Now he sees it as training and honing my skills. Gabriel sees it as staying out of trouble and away from boys. Shows what he knows, I don't sleep during the daytime and I DO have a phone! I just think it's fun, mainly because I usually win.

I hate being confined. So, when it's time to study, I head up to the roof. The roof is all MINE, Gabriel and the Old Man don't go up there or I threaten to bite them. I've got my books, my coffee, this awesome vase lamp thingy I found at a garage sale for a quarter, and the stars above me. No desks, no walls, no vampires hovering over me watching my every move. What more do I need?

Simone Yattle

Can I just, before we start, thank you so much for granting me past the application stage? I'm thrilled at this new opportunity and -Unlike what my parents might say about me, as they only got to read the application after it was sent in, I am truly and honestly so exited to come to this brilliant school!

This was taken at this new place in town, Its amazing how they can get the pictures so realistic and crisp, Lots of other people have got pictures taken here -Its not that expensive too- but its great fun at the photoshoot! Dad's pointing at Mum there, -Look at his eyes! I can't pose much, I'm not really that type but mum looks evil! :p
I have my mums eyes and my dads skin, But I have a nice mix of both of their genetics, which I like. My dad says my hair is from my mum because he can never remember people of his species with anything but true black hair, But he came to earth as a child anyway, So there's always things to learn about my genetics!

Dad took this one secretly, It was fun to look back at, It was when Dad was making Dinner (Was it a Tuesday?) And we had just come back from the photo place I mentioned before. A few seconds after this was taken, Dad burnt the Pasta he had spent so much time one getting perfect and we had to get a Chinese! It was quite funny that Dad had prepared this the whole time we were out, He was devastated he can't get the hang of some foods, so Mum regally cooks.

My room is where I do the most studying, Its good because I love this desk. I am quite good organizing I think, Not perfect, But I always keep my stuff in places where they belong. You might be able to see a few notepads, There actually my "doodle Pads". I take to school, I always get told off about those, But my art teacher encourages me to doodle. She says that "Doodling is the minds way of getting out strong emotions and feelings from within and turning them into drawings and pieces of great work.." but I think the only emotion I feel is being sheer board!
My dad gets the house computers for us, He builds them too. Mine is great, it can handle much more than normal ones can -I don't know much about computers, He won't tell me much because he says that I won't understand.
I have this nice squishy chair at my desk, Its great because I can just relax in it when I'm writing new novels.

Aww, don't say that. :( It certainly isn't true. I think my Round One is a bit scatter-brained, really. Not much order, so it's probably not clear to read. And I got lucky with those pictures, there were about four-dozen others that looked terrible.
But honestly, thank you everyone for the nice things you have said. I hope the work I put in shows. :)
I think everyone's entries have been really great, and I probably had a lot more free time to work on my entry than other people. Just luck on my part.

And I know what you mean about popping into someone's mind, PETCHY14! Fergus is a lot of fun to write for, though all the development of his family background actually occured in-game. I just jazzed it up a bit. I think you write for your characters very well, and give them very interesting personalities. :D

Urg, This is very fake, I can't say that I hate it though. It was taken at a weird place in the middle of town "ABellaTura" or something like that, We had to pay a reasonable am mount and we got this "Photoshoot" type thing, that was really great fun for us all, It was also nice that I got to feel a bit more normal there. They told us that we had to do a "scene" where we -My brother and I- had to pretend to tell Mum and Dad off. It was great, I started Nagging Dad who casually looked away. I like Dad's new haircut, It makes him look younger, Plus his hair is back to being straight and not knotty like before.


Free Shot of my family
http://i33.tinypic.com/1z3v82a.jpg (http://i35.tinypic.com/313p3te.jpg)
This was taken very early in the morning, We were about to go on holiday and it was around 3 AM. My little brother was trying to tell me something about my application to come here, I wasn't in the mood to listen to my future, I had already fallen asleep -I don't do mornings!
Everyone was getting a cup of coffee -Well almost, James doesn't like it. We were going to Spain, we got back a week ago, We went for 10 days -It was nice, But I didn't get a suntan, I just Burnt, which was annoying to say the least..

This is where I do my work, Its always tidy too -Its a great spell- I like my room, its quite cozy, also, Its an extension, plus its very personal -My Brother Designed it. i can't remember why I have those tools hanging up there, I can never remember them being used -I think I should sell them on Ebay for some 'School Cash'. *Will Update Picture Later*
I have a nice time painting, Its fun to look out of the window and see something and just expand on a tiny detail. I have a couple of boards to use in the corner of my room there, They need to get gone before I go, but I'm in love with my staircase that goes to the top of the roof. -You can't see it in this pic- But its a beautiful Black Wrought Iron one with all of the little fancy details, Its Marvelous. I added a few colorful Glass marbles to every post too, So it glints in the sunlight.
I don't use the rooftop to study much, There is a Table and chairs and a Telescope that my dad likes to use, But Its main use is for Sneaking out and in again as I can just fly of and back on there in a flash.

One thing you CAN do is position your shot (Or almost there and tweak in TAB mode) then turn the graphics to "UltraHigh" -This includes "Smooth Edges/anti-aliasing" and go from there, to only change back later. Thats all I can think of, Without Photoshopping o'course!

It's just a good graphics card with the right settings.

I think most of us here just use the graphics cards that came with our computers. I mean, I do. My computer is pretty new but it's a really basic, off the shelf model and and think my graphics look pretty nice.

I asked my husband if a new graphics card would make my game look better and he said a graphics card alone wouldn't make too big of a difference, unless you had and I quote "the sh*t to run it", i.e. you'd pretty much have to upgarde your entire computer.

I think the right settings are what helps the most. Whenever I install a new EP, my settings switch back to default and everything looks AWFUL. I keep everything switched on high.

From left to right: Mary, Frederic, Cecile

I consider my first owner and her family my true family. Purchased in Belgium By Frederic Valentine a rather bumbling inventor in 1902 while on business I became a firm favourite with his daughter and my original (and favourite) owner Mary Valentine. I was treated like family: I accompanied Mary everywhere, I even got my own place at the dinner table, it would have been unheard of to include a doll in a family portrait however.

As my siggy says; What you see, Is what I get :) I don't sharpen images unless I'm allowed to, As this contest says "No photoshopping" -I don't. But I've seen people using brilliant effects to make the game look like your in TS3 or better!

Nice emodawg! Although, I have to ask if that comment about sharpening images was in general, or did you do that in this entry?

EDIT: Since there's been some confusion, I'll clarify that Photoshopping means changing your pictures in any way from the original. This includes sharpening and brightening. In this round, any entries that involve this will have points knocked off, unless the images are changed. In future rounds, the entries will be disqualified.

Hope that helps. :)

Mother: Princess Katharine Astraea Merriweather, a cherub (Deceased); Father: Cedric St. Frances III, blood demon (Fugative) shown rarely unarmed.

Bonnie and Clyde of the skies, Katharine and Cedric III were drawn together by Katharine's curiousity about the fragility of mortality (seemingly unaware of her own) and Cedric III's general sadism. Killing on a whim for giggles, they avoided retribution because of Katharine's social standing. Their luck came to an end when her father was overthrown for "financial irregularities" and they were imprisioned along with a young Cedric IV. It has always been thought Cedric III had been the one who brutally killed Katharine in prison and killed his son several years later also but has never been proved.

Guess I have to confess that I sharpen and clarify all my pics. I have to do that to all my sims pics or they're just not worth looking at. (and that's with game graphics all set to high, I think I need a new computer) If *I* can't even see my pics without it, nobody else is going to be able to either. I didn't realize that in this contest "no photoshopping" meant absolutely NO editing at all.

This might be my last round since I can't seem to master the in-game lighting since Seasons. LOL

No sharpening, you say? I find that the images my new PC makes are very crisp, so I actually don't sharpen my images. I think I may have resized one or two, but other than that I don't think I have tampered with them. I try to take good, clear pictures in the game so that there is a minimum of fuss afterwards. (Plus my graphics card is pretty damn good, especially compared with the original I started out with a few years ago!)

Its the same here,
But its a well known fact that the "Print screen" method is best, I still see people complaining about their graphics not looking good -Its the method everyone uses, So why not just use it?..
A nice way to retain quality is use (JPG style) Thumbnails with links to full throttle PNG quality ones, as the forum won't let you use them here.

If I can't even sharpen, I can't use the werewolf, period. It looks fine when I'm playing, but take a screenshot and pffft, useless. She vanishes no matter how much light I put around. (not to mention I hate the way the lights make the shot look, so fake)

So yeah, after this round I'm probably out. My own fault, really, for not asking for clarification about the "Photoshop" thing in the first place. And for buying a car instead of a new computer. (and I don't even HAVE Photoshop...)

Hopefully I'll be back for the second cycle, but for now, with great regret, i've got to drop out.
Sorry, and best of luck! I'll watch from the sideline (grumble grumble BAD computer)
I probably should have expected this, I had problems previously, leading me to dropping out from Her Pose cycle one, but I thought it was all better.
Oh dear.

Its the same here,
But its a well known fact that the "Print screen" method is best, I still see people complaining about their graphics not looking good -Its the method everyone uses, So why not just use it?..
A nice way to retain quality is use (JPG style) Thumbnails with links to full throttle PNG quality ones, as the forum won't let you use them here.

That's the best method, IMO. I wish I could do that in the Sims Pictures forum, but people there are too lazy to actually click the thumbnail. D:

I don't know what you guys mean by sharpening, but recently I've figured how to use Microsoft Picture Manager to up contrast. It makes my shots a bit better, I guess.

But for this contest, I'll just keep spending hours working with the in-game lighting, per always. :D

EDIT: Oops, I clicked submit too early. XD

@emodawg: Those are effin' amazinggg. I fail even more now. D:

It's sad to see people dropping out. I hope you might change your mind, but if not, I'm sure I'll be seeing you around. :D

The GhostTree clan has been keepers of the Earth Tree Grove for many generations. My father, Grindle, and I are the current keepers of the grove. My mother, Pease, passed away giving birth to me. Life for us is pretty simple compared to the other races of Tencendor, we keep the grounds of the grove clean from debris and tend to the local wildlife.

Every morning my father and I like to start our day with a rousing session of Tai Chi to keep our bodies in good working order.

The Earth Tree Grove is unlike any place I've been before, except for perhaps the great magical lakes of Tencendor. The Earth Tree's song fills the air with it's magical music, encouraging growth of not only the plants and animals but of spirit and mind.

Dropped Out

Nathan Mattix – Nathan recently decided it would be best if he moved to a different school, citing that there were too many steaks in the menu, and his strained relationship with our Melee Weaponry Mistress, Professor Buffy Summers.

Alenia Forgwarth – Unfortunately, a mix-up on a school trip lead Alenia to drink tetraphid water instead of ketraphid water, leading to an allergic collapse. She has been moved back to her home on the Sun until she recovers.

Pepper Ashton – You will be glad to hear that a band of survivers from Pepper’s home world have gathered together and started life anew on a distant planet. Knowing her responsibilities, Pepper and her brother returned to their people to lead them into an age of peace and prosperity. Wish her luck everyone!

Skayle Eden – Unfortunately dropped out after one of the werewolves stole his leg bone, leaving him unable to walk until the healers can grown him a new one. Let’s wish him all a speedy recovery.

Nila Farpor – Left the school after an incident involving several other demons, who took offense of the way she treated them. You will all be glad to know that she is well and back in Hell where she belongs.

Expulsion

None. :)
