The Medicine Cat's Quest (Goldenrod)
« on: July 17, 2015, 12:23:01 PM »
The medicine cat challenge is a very simple collection game. In order to acquire each of the herbs, you must complete a task, either on the forum or in real life. The available herbs will change and rotate, giving everyone a chance to collect them. Once you reach a collection of herbs, you will receive a random amount of prey points, a random cat-related book (if you're comfortable giving out your address, be sure to note which books you already have), and a random cat-related object (again, if you're comfortable giving out your address). Along with this, you will receive a congratulations card and a random candy (please note any dietary restrictions). If you are uncomfortable with giving out your address, you will receive random prey points, a random trading card, and a valuable feather instead. You cannot have both options, however.

The current herb is goldenrod.

The tasks required to receive goldenrod are as follows...


1) Draw your best picture of goldenrod.
2) Go to the zoo and snap a photo of a lion.
3) Write your username on a piece of paper in golden glitter glue and post a picture of it.
4) Acquire a TCG trading card of Firestar.
5) Take a picture of a (real) golden or ginger cat.
6) Find actual goldenrod and take a selfie with it.
7) Make a meal of all yellow or gold colored foods and film yourself describing the contents.
8) Take a video of a goldfish swimming.
9) Get any kind of yellow or gold colored drink, take a picture, and give it a tasteful Instagram-esque filter.
10) Record yourself reciting a gold-themed poem.

Keep in mind, some of these activities may include use of your own money. If you are unable to do these challenges right now, wait for the herb to come back around and try again. Activities are likely to change.

This is essentially a grander scale scavenger hunt, over-arching instead of being fast paced. You may claim a post to put your entries in and you will be awarded with your goldenrod once the challenge is deemed over in two weeks from the time this was posted.

You must complete at least seven of the tasks on the list in order to qualify for the goldenrod. Everything on this list has to be done currently, no prior images/videos/etc are accepted.

If there's any clarification needed, please message modmin Darkstar.

May StarClan light your path, medicine cats.

This sounds fun :D Just bought a wildflower book the other day so hopefully that'll have some information on where to find goldenrod.. only one I'm not sure I'll have much luck with is the lion one, as there aren't that many zoos near me and they're generally expensive to get into :\

I've added that you only need 7/10 of the tasks completed in order to get the goldenrod, so hopefully the zoo one won't hinder you!

Thank you for making it only require 7 of them; not all of them would be possible for everyone.

That begs the question: Do pictures have to be newly taken/current?  'Cause most of the herbs in the book only grow in the summer, y'see, and so that means we only get them for like 4 months of the year in Wisconsin, so I'm wondering if I can take a picture of a bunch of them now or whatever.  And, like, I took a picture of a lion when I went to the zoo last summer, but I probably won't be to a zoo like that for another couple years because there just aren't any like that around here.  Is stuff like that allowed?
