They Are The Champions Online: Compo!

You can be amazed at my photography?

What’s that? Oh, my dear child. It’s a prize. Well, it’s something we’re going to give away to whoever wins a competition we set, which means it counts as a prize in our book. But what is it? And what do you have to do to win it? And how did I get it through customs into the country? The answers to all can only be discovered beneath this finely crafted cut…

Sexy Skateboard!
It’s a skateboard. Without wheels, true, but that didn’t stop the Silver Surfer. Except he was on a surfboard, so maybe it would stop him. I’ll have to ask Stan Lee if I bump into him at San Diego Comic Con next week.

I’m digressing.

This was presented to me as I was leaving Cryptic, and it’s quite the oddest object d’art which a developer has tried to heft off on me for a while. Being a terminal killjoy, I tend to give them back, but I was so startled that I had to take it. And work out a way to get it on the plane and across London, just because I had the nagging sensation that an RPS reader would actually find it highly amusing. Or even useful, if they had a set of wheels and no board.

So – a competition. Let’s keep this simple. Since everyone’s so excited about the character creator, let’s ask you to design one. You can do it in text desciptions. You can do it with drawings. You can do it in fuzzyfelt. We’re looking for ideas rather than artistic execution, and whoever amuses or amazes us most gets the board.

Send your entries here before the August 14th. Oh – and the usual RPS compo rules apply.
