Try and come up with things that are small, both that pcs might carry or that they might have in their rooms.

It could be anything from kitchenware such as plates, or items which people might carry from snuff boxes to pomander cases to whatever you can come up with. Feel free to describe things I listed if you like them.

While statues are nice, crafters get the most traction from items that most people want to use, either for their rooms for storage or guests, or for use themselves.

Every player who submits an entry to the contest will get 5 points per entry up to 15 points. And any items which get added in will receive 20 points. Feel free to submit more than three items, since they can all still earn the 20 points.

Two small updates. Rather than send scrolls or PM, please post submissions here.

That'll do two things, let people see what is already submitted and give others ideas (and whet creative and competitive juices).

In addition, when creating objects they can have multiple traits or details. For example, a mirror might have its main description, we call that the Default detail. In addition, it might have a description for its Frame and for its Stand.

Each one of those would have a brief, a look and an examine.

The more robust an item is, the more likely it is to be chosen.

Here is a list of things that are already created, but not available in game just yet. These will be added when everything is all finished.

(Just so we don't end up having duplicates)

Some things are unfinished, and if you would like to submit ideas that are based off of a parent object, please feel free to do so!

(A parent item means you would begin creating a more detailed item from this object. Much like a plain shirt in seamstressing can be tailored into various other shirts, vests, bodices and so on and so forth)

I'll highlight the ones that need help in red. Also, for parent items, please include a description of each individual item.

EXAMPLE: (And this is an actual item that we need more detailed versions of. Frames -may- be added upon in-character RP with carpenters. They'll be like small carved pieces of art that you can hang on a wall. )

A DECORATIVE FRIEZE (parent item)

brief: STONE lily decorative frieze

look: A STONE decorative frieze carved in the shape of a lily.

examine: The flower itself is the highlight of this carving which is made more prominent by the area around the lily being scraped down to a flat smoothness, while the lily seems to protrude forth from the depiction in the style of an embossing.
(Not finished, if you have a better way to depict carved reliefs, feel free to suggest them)



These flower shapes will apply to tea cups, saucers and dining plates below.

Shape options - rose, clover, petunia, morning glory, lily pad, lotus, tulip, dahlia, carnation, poppy, cherry blossom, apple blossom, amaryllis, moonflower, anemone, aster, gerbera-daisy, calla lily, chrysanthemum, daffodil, gladiola, iris, orchid, peony, sunflower, freesia.

(Feel free to suggest flower shapes, but, know that since this item is already created, it likely wont generate any STPs)

TEA CUP

brief: STONE tea cup

look: A STONE tea cup used for drinking tea or coffee.

FLOWER SHAPE - A small, fully bloomed STONE - FLOWER TYPE shaped saucer used for serving condiments and sauces, or as support for a tea cup.

[END FLOWER SHAPE ITEMS]



AUTO ENGRAVINGS - These will be added at random upon creation of the following items. [May suggest these for other items as well ]


ENGRAVING TYPES -

- An ornate mosaic of floral arabesque designs

- A meadow clearing alive with fluttering dragonflies, faeries perched on toadstools, and elaborate leafy trees

- A detailed pattern of various sized starbursts, separated by wavy frames

- Intricate latticed ivy, with painted, violet morning glory accents sporadically dotting the crisscross design

- Thick, leafy vegetation. Here and there the vegetation breaks to reveal calm pond waters, with a single lotus floating upon it's surface

- Thorny vined scrollwork. Each end of the undulated vines is capped with a serrated, heraldic leaf

- A flowery field of peacocks, their tails splayed in a fan of numerous eyed feathers

- A flock of diving sparrows, their v-shaped wings pointing downward in their descent

- Various sized, whimsical shaped vases. Each painted a different color

- A swarm of merfolk, each intricately detailed creature performing a different act of play as their frozen forms bob amongst the waves

- Strings of ballooned, colorful paper lanterns

- A dizzying maze pattern. If you attempt to trace the pattern from beginning to end, you find your eyes crossing somewhere mid-way and discover your finger somehow back at the beginning

[Engravings are still in the works. Some may be taken out and others changed entirely due to colors of paint. We'll see.]



PLATTER

brief: large STONE oval-shaped platter

look: A large STONE oval-shaped platter with a wavy edge.

BASIN

brief: STONE lily pad shaped basin

look: A STONE basin molded into the shape of a curled lily pad.

examine: A STONE basin molded into the shape of a curled lily pad. The very center of the bowl is marked with a pearl-sized marble with thin veins indenting the leaf to make the petal portions create small, upward curves that lend a frilly appearance to the otherwise smooth outer edge.

Examples

Some other ideas to consider. These are things I was thinking of adding, but just haven't had the time to yet. Feel free to use any of these as your submissions after adding more detailed descriptions.


rectangular tureen - A serving dish for foods such as soups or stews, often shaped as a broad, deep, oval vessel with fixed handles and a low domed cover with a knob or handle.


Ladle - A large spoon-like serving device, typically used for soups and stews.


Punch bowl -


Small cream pitcher - A creamer is a small pitcher or jug designed for holding cream or milk to be served with tea or coffee in the Western tradition.


Sugar dish -


Salt cellar - A salt cellar (also called salt or standing salt) is a vessel, usually small and made of glass, stone or silver, used on the table for holding salt. An individual salt dish or squat open salt cellar placed near a trencher was called a trencher salt. Can have squat 'legs' for support.


Pepper grinder -


Sauce boat - A boat-shaped pitcher in which sauce or gravy is served. It often sits on a matching plate, sometimes attached to the pitcher, to catch dripping sauce.


Cake stand -


Soup bowl - A thick ceramic bowl with small handles on each side of the bowl designed for eating without a utensil.


Tea Pot - (Likely with a similar theme as the flower saucers, teacups and plates)


Small jar - Include lid


Medium jar - Include lid


Large jar - Include lid


Plant Stand -


Column-like, pillar pedestal - Like so - http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j0...tal-XF646-.jpg or traditional, rounded column shape.

Chair? -



And... this is all I've got thus far. I hope everyone has fun! If you don't want to use these examples, don't feel obligated to. Just throwing some ideas out there that I had when I had the time to work on this.

Well, if this is still open, I can throw/expand on something out there. Since I'm drawing a blank on anything useful, I'll just, ahem, "borrow" unfinished ideas to use.
=============

Punch Bowl


Brief: Bowl
Look: A stone/(insert type of stone here) punch bowl. It's mainly used to hold liquids, such as fruit punch or chardonnay, for serving at parties or social gatherings.
Examine: A stone/(insert type of stone here) punch bowl. It's mainly used to hold liquids, such as fruit punch or chardonnay, for serving at parties or social gatherings. This bowl appears to be about 12" in diameter, and it is also sometimes positioned on a small stand for stability.
-------------------------
Punch Bowl Stand

Brief: Bowl Stand
Look: A simple stone/(Insert type of stone here) punch bowl stand. It's main purpose, surprise surprise, is to provide a base for a Punch Bowl.
Examine: A simple stone/(Insert type of stone here) punch bowl stand. It's main purpose, surprise surprise, is to provide a base of a Punch Bowl. The ring of the stand is about 9" in diameter, and three stubby legs at 12, 5, and 9 o'clock positions help keep the bowl from tipping over.
=============================
Pepper Grinder

Brief: Pepper
Look: A stone Pepper Grinder. This long, nearly cylindrical tube has a top that pops up and a hollow center for storing pepper. The bottom of the tube has many small holes that the pepper passes through after being ground to a fine consistency.
Examine: A stone Pepper Grinder. This long, nearly cylindrical tube has a top that pops up and a hollow center for storing pepper. The bottom of the tube has many small holes that the pepper passes through after being ground to a fine consistency. The top of the Pepper Grinder is a separate piece that pops off to allow access to the hollow center of the Grinder, where sharp pieces of stone grind the pepper stored within to a fine consistancy.
-------------------------------
Pepper Grinder Lid

Brief: Grinder Lid
Look: A stone lid, designed for a Pepper Grinder.
Examine: A stone lid, designed for a Pepper Grinder. The lid connects to a Pepper Grinder through grooves cut into the lid and the top of the Pepper Grinder itself. This lid also comes with a handle, to make the Grinder spin and grind the Pepper contained within.
--------------------------------
Grinder

Brief: Grinder
Look: A stone grinder, designed to fit into the base of a Pepper Grinder
Examine: A stone grinder, designed to fit into the base of a Pepper Grinder. The grinder itself is actually made of four outstretched pieces of stone, with some sharpened pieces of metal cut into the stone. The base is grooved, to allow the blades to spin and grind pepper into fine, coarse chunks, to fit through the holes in the base of the Pepper Grinder
