The Medicine Cat's Quest (Holly)
« on: December 06, 2015, 11:04:43 PM »
The medicine cat challenge is a very simple collection game. In order to acquire each of the herbs, you must complete a quest, 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 holly.

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

1) Cut a piece of red paper into the shape of a snowflake.
2) Deck your halls with boughs of holly (in other words, make a holly-themed display and snap a picture).
3) Sing and upload your favorite holiday song to the media center.
4) Write a short (>500) crackfic of a ship between Hollyleaf and any other random character.
5) Make all the text in your signature red and green.
6) Find some real life holly and take a picture of it.
7) Film yourself drinking a red drink of your choice following your own Warriors-themed toast.
8) Write a poem about the colors red and green.
9) Take a picture of yourself in an ugly holiday sweater.
10) Change your forum name to something winter or holiday themed.

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 holly 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 holly. 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.

Changed the forum name and will change signature in a few minutes.

EDIT: Signature has been changed. Does this count?

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.

Thanks for the avatar, Secret Santa!
There are bad ways to win-- and good ways to lose.
What's interesting and troubling is that it's not always clear which is which.
A flipped coin doesn't always land heads or tails.
Sometimes it may never land at all...

I was actually just thinking about this quest today; I saw the poinsettias at the store and thought that maybe we'd see a Holly contest soon. :)

What is the deadline for this one? Because I'm thinking of doing what I can do for it over the course of this weekend. So far, I got the name #10.

On an another note, I have been searching in every store I go in with plants for holly, but so far no luck lol. Why hast thou forsaken me, holly?

Ah well too bad for me, since I didn't get around to doing the things anyway haha. Next Holly one or even next medicine cat herb quest will probably work out better for me anyway when I don't have a whole bunch of things to do and things on my mind  :tongue:
