The Isle of X Contest

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle...
"The Ballad of Gilligan's Island" by George Wyle and Sherwood Shwartz

This month's contest is to describe and design an forgotten, uncharted, or otherwise unknown and mysterious (to the rest of the world) island. Who lives here? Why is it unknown or mysterious? What kinds of adventures might newly arriving heroes find? What treasures does the island hold?

The contest begins with the posting of this thread and will continue until Noon, January 15, 2008 (Eastern US Time). Please remember, as always, to follow the general contest guidelines (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1396387&postcount=2).

The Rules:

1.) You will be creating an island, some interesting inhabitants, and some treasure , and a secret of the island.
2.) Your entry must include the following:

A description of the island (geography, flora, fauna, climate, etc.)
A description of some interesting inhabitant (or inhabitants) native to that island (with stats, if appropriate).
A description of some valuable treasure on the island (with stats, if appropriate).
A description of some secret of the island (with stats, if appropriate).
Entries should be set in the standard D&D cosmology, and not any particular setting (e.g. Forgotten Realms or Eberron.) Try to avoid referencing non-core/SRD books where possible, but obviously, this contest may require some reference to non-core material.
Each new entry should be started on a new thread here on the Contests board, dedicated to just that set of items and the discussion of it. Put the tag [ISLE] in front of the title of that thread. Any thread without this tag will not be officially entered.
Post on the Entry Thread to let the mods know that you have completed your [ISLE] entry. We'll try to keep a post with all the entries listed in one place for easy reference. This post in the Entry Thread is where you must post a link to your thread to be officially entered.Categories of voting and judgment will include the following:

Best Island
Best Inhabitant(s)
Best Treasure
Best Secret
Funniest Entry
Rookie Award

If you are eligible for the Rookie award (this is your first entry in an official GitP Design Contest) please note that in your post to this thread. Otherwise, everyone is eligible for everything else - no need to indicate anything.

This is the Entry Thread. Post only entries here; if you have questions, please post them in the contest thread itself. Good luck!

The secrets and lore of Pine Haven (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67653) are ready to be displayed. As others have said, there may be a few tweaks here and there, but the entry is complete.

Thought I was going to work on this more but haven't. I suppose the Isle of Tides (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67126) is complete.

Edit: Oh yeah, I'm a rookie :smallsmile:

Like the others, I may tweak or whatnot, but I don't think there are any major changes coming. This is my first entry in an official contest.

Adventurers the world over beware! The Lost Isle (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68568) - a dangerous haven full of dinosaurs, prehistoric animals, and dangerous secrets - is ready for business!

The Isle of Lausie (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68963)

First attempt at this, so concider me a rookie.

Like others, I'll probably make small adjustments to this before the contest deadline

Do you dare venture to the mysterious...Crescent Moon Island (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69194)

I'm a rookie so... more opprotunity for me.

The Sovereign Military Republic of Hala (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3673159#post3673159) welcomes all to her beautiful shores...just be careful where you stick you nose. The Knights are still trying to clean up from last night's mayhem...

I do belive I am as finished as I'll get. I might get around to adding in a few additional magic items (Cael's Warhammer, the Sithak idols), but aside from that I'm set!

I am a rookie, don't be too harsh.

Also: I'm a rookie!

Been a long time, but I'm back, baby!

The Forbidden Island of Amohet (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69599) is now ready for the viewing of the public.

The Isle of the Winds (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3654439) is done. Well, as far as I can manage in time for the contest. =) My little table lists the things I didn't get to.

Oh, I'm a rookie. Maybe. Not sure if being in one GITP Monster competition in the Homebrew Design (not Design Contests) forum counts as not being a rookie. =)
