Win All Three Dungeon Sieges!

By Jim Rossignol on July 1st, 2011 at 1:33 pm.


If you really, really want to besiege dungeons three-at-a-time, then this competition is for you. In celebration of there first being Dungeon Siege, and then two of it, and now three of it, the lovely chaps at Square and Obsidian have provides three sets of all three games for you guys to win. That’s right: Dungeon Siege One, Two, And Three (Count ‘em!) for you to play. They’re Steam codes, too, so if you already have one of the games you could always pass the code along to a chum. That sounds like a decent prize to me, but what to do to win it?

Well, we want dungeon-themed limmericks. Send yours to this address, and the best of them, as judged by us, will win the codes. The competition closes 12 noon UK time on Monday. Also see: rules.

      The Fire & Sword one I’d enter of course
      Though sadly I’m not from the right source
      It’s not three dungeons I’d siege
      But some castles for my liege
      Because a dungeons no place for a horse

    I dun know nothing bout them limericks and such…

  3. Zakkeh says:

    Nawwww, limericks are annoying to write. can’t we do haikus and be like;

    Green moss climbs the wall
    Dark, dreary torches flicker
    Traps are everywhere

    • Meatloaf says:

      No, no, that’s not right. Here, let me help:

      Limmericks are annoying to write
      Can’t we do haikus and be like
      Green moss climbs the wall
      Dreary flames light the hall
      There’s traps and they’re causing us fright

    We once sieged a dungeon on Venus.
    Didn’t have even a gold coin between us.
    But after fighting caverns of rats
    goblins, computer nerds, and space bats
    We’d gained 250k XP and a lovely golden… set of cutlery.

    p.s. If I win, please send my ‘prize’ to frightlever

    While exploring the lost Mines of Moria
    A grizzled and hard-bitten warrior
    Said “Sod this for a lark!
    I don’t like the dark!
    Make the hobbits go first and I’ll follow ya”

    For people who can’t just click on that email link and have it magically populate the subject line (like if you’re a Gmail user or something):

    email address is: compo@rockpapershotgun.com
    subject line is: Dungeon, Triungeon

      You can actually associate mailto with firefox to make it work with Gmail:

      1. Open regedit.exe
      2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClientsStartMenuInternetFIREFOX.EXECapabilities
      3. Right Click on the URLAssociations Key
      4. Click New->String Value
      5. Set the name to ‘mailto’ (without the quotes)
      6. Set the value to FirefoxURL

      Now when you go to Control Panel->Programs->Default Programs->Set Associations->MAILTO->Change program… you will see Firefox listed

    There was once an old dwarf they called Pete,
    who they said always lands on hez feet.
    The myth was disproved,
    when from out of a clood,
    a harpy splatted Pete on the groond.

    Oh cool, a screensaver pack!

  9. Midarc says:

    This is harder than it looks…
    Try as I might, I can’t come up with a rhyme for Josef Fritzl.

  10. The Dark One says:

    I can’t believe how difficult it is to rhyme something with ‘have’. :(

  11. valkynaz says:

    This should be fun.

    Look what I wrote… Took me hours and I just found out about this comp not too long before it ended… Scary but FUN!!!
    It’s a compilation of the whole storyline in lymmericks.

    Zaramoth the utgard such an evil way he rolls
    Killing agallans and his kin for their souls
    Bound their souls to his sword
    Now he’s a Treacherous Lord
    His power unquestioned and out of control

    Azunai and his men confronts with no fears
    Battle commenced on a field unheard to ears
    The great cataclysm was amok
    As the sword and shield struck
    That field was then named The Plain Of Tears

    He had created a race called the Seck
    Who took the Kingdom of Ehb by the neck
    But there was a Farmer
    Who Cleansed all of Aranna
    Of the Seck as if they all were a spec

    Along comes Valdis & again evil has a Warden
    Like Zaramoth he creates a race called the Morden
    But he was betrayed
    by the Archmage
    that had left him for the hero to cordon

    The Archmage has planned to be bound to the Sword
    With help from the tree people the Cinbri Implored
    To open the gate to his home
    And surely grant him a throne
    But the hero implored “pick up your sword” & the hero scored

    Many years on by a legionaries hand a king was slain
    The legion was stricken and bloodied by a murderous campaign
    Vengeance was at hand
    from the Daughter of that man
    But many innocent men were killed by the power of Jeyne

    The Legion is strong and will never say goodbye
    As you gather troops from near, far & wide
    In the forest Jeyne will retreat
    For her twisted gods to be beat
    What will you choose when it asks live or die?

  13. xxfatxxx says:

    I purchased a game just for me
    Some things I just couldn’t believe
    No custom controls or player captivation
    The lack of a soul and steam activation
    Oh my God this is dungeon Siege three

    This is what I actually sent them ;) lol

  14. VeritableHero says:

    Gentlemen, did we ever get a winner on this contest? I’d love to see the winning entries.

  15. Nat-Han says:

    Yeah!!! I’d love to find out the winning entries also.

  16. ABearWithAGun says:

    I guess we all suck too badly at writing limericks, and nobody won. ;_;

  17. xXDovahkinXx says:

    It was a pain in the butt to write this
    but that’s what i do for a game.
    in my straight honest opinion
    this is kinda lame.
    If you do me this favor
    i will not call you chodes. (i couldn’t think of anything else to rhyme, sorry guys! you are all great!)
    but because i like you guys
    i kinda want the codes.
    i have played dungeon siege
    for quite a long time.
    and i’ve always had fun with it
    but i really miss DS II this time.
    so please be cool
    and pick me to win.
    for if i do
    every time i play will be with a happy grin. =D
