    Make Warr Byrd an Avatar!

    Avatar Contest!

    In my 2,000th post, I said that once Wulven provided support for the larger forum avatars, I would hold a contest to design my forum avatar. Well, now it's three months and 500 posts later, and I've moved from roughly 40th top poster to 25th. Since the larger avatars are going to be Soon™ rather than soon, I'm going to go ahead and have the contest NOW!

    Rules
    1) Each person may submit up to three images. They do not need to be in the same post, but it would be appreciated. If you submit a fourth image, you must remove one of your previous submissions.
    2) Images should relate to either Shadow Era or my Forum name in some way.
    3) I think this goes without saying, but please keep all submissions tasteful.
    4) You have one month from the time of this post to make your submissions.
    5) Should larger avatar support be released before the end of the contest, I will extend the deadline by two weeks.
    6) You are free to ask me any questions about my name or my feelings/opinions about Shadow Era to help design the avatar. I will not answer questions about my personal life outside of Shadow Era, nor offer opinions on artwork.

    After the deadline has closed, I will select my favorite 10 avatars, and Stage 2 will start! That's right, Stage 2! And you get to participate again! I will be opening a poll for two weeks containing my 10 favorite avatar choices, and the forum will have the chance to vote for my avatar! (If, by some chance, there are fewer than 10 submissions, all of them will proceed to Stage 2).

    Now, obviously, there has to be some incentive for people to submit some art. So, let me announce the prizes:

    Everyone who submits an avatar will have the choice of either 150 Shadow Crystals or a redeemable code for between 100 and 200 Shadow Crystals. Play it safe with the 150, or gamble for the 200!

    Everyone who makes it to the final 10 will receive an additional 1,000 Shadow Crystals, as well as a mention at the end of my signature.

    The individual who gets the most votes will receive an additional 1,000 Shadow Crystals (for a total of 2,000, plus their reward from Stage 1), have their submission as my avatar for a minimum of six months, and be credited in the first line of my signature.

    To save some time, the crystal rewards for submitting images and for making the final 10 will be submitted to support all at once when the poll for Stage 2 is posted. Those who choose to receive a redeemable code will have it PM'ed to them at the same time.

    And yes, this is actually my 2,500th post, I'm making a large number of posts in the PFG these days so you probably won't see all 2,500 if you look and my post count will probably change by the time you read this.
    Congratulations to Preybird for designing my Avatar!

    If you are referring to the purple dinosaur, I was obsessed as a little kid and can't stand him now. That said, I can take a joke and a tasteful, well-done reference may still have a shot at making Stage 2.

    My real life situation drastically limits my personal time. So Shadow Era is really the only game I play these days. As for show, I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite, but I watch Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Defiance, and Marvel Agents of SHIELD.

    Red and black.

    Good question. When I was younger, I was very temperamental and aggressive, and tended to think of myself as a bird or dragon. A lot of my early escapes from reality tended to reference this in some way. As I got older, I began to mellow out, and War Bird began to shift more towards something that might be a person's name. War became Warr, a sort of contraction of Warren (which is not related in any way to my real name), and Bird became Byrd, which is actually a last name of people, but I don't think I'm related to any of them. Although I wouldn't mind being related to Richard Byrd.

    I prefer fantasy art the most. I don't like photorealistic that much as a general rule since I can usually tell it isn't a photo, and if I wanted it that realistic I would just take a photo.

    Well, it's not exactly Shadow Era related, but it's a rather nasty looking battle ready avian.
