• Hi everyone!

    As part of our plan to create a unified community across all sites/logins, we have now integrated VGAssist into the forum community here and ported over some of the more popular guides. This part of the community will focus on game guides as well as a community videogaming Q&A section and we encourage you all to get involved too :)

    While we were doing this we have fixed up a few visual anomalies in some parts of the forums too.

Tournament: The Art Exhibition

Harrogath is hosting an exhibition/competition in the Art Gallery (What do you mean "There isn't an Art Gallery in Harrogath?" It's the square building next to the Waypoint. Admittedly it only has crude paintings of Barbarians hitting things with sharp bits of metal or pointy sticks, but that is to about to change).

For the exhibition to be a success pictures are required according to the following rules:

1. Any new or existing character can compete. Any version, any difficulty, HC, SC, vanilla or (acceptably) modded.
2. Each entry must consist of 5 pictures, to be submitted in the form of in-game screenshots. Images can be hosted by ImageShack or similar sites. (To take a screenshot, press the "Print Screen" key. The image will be stored in your main Diablo II Folder).
3. Pictures must be of Unique monsters. (Original work only. No copies of other people's work is allowed).
4. Boss, Super Unique and Champion, Fanatic, Possessed, Ghostly etc. type monsters do not count. (Super Uniques spawn in fixed areas and include the likes of Thresh Socket, Pindleskin, Bishibosh, etc. The full list can be seen in ATMA's Drop Calculator).
5. One point will be awarded for each letter, spaces not included, of the Unique monster's name. Rusthole The Flatulent, for example, would score 20 points.
6. Unique monsters having each name beginning with the same letter score double. Sweaty Skull, for example, would score 22 points. Scale Skin The Scary would not score double as 'The' does not begin with 'S'.
8. Characters with the ability to use a corpse (for raising minions or horking) cannot claim the word "Corpse" added to the Unique's name after it has been killed.
9. The entrant with the most points wins. In the event of a tie, the winners will have one further submission of 5 pictures. If there is still a tie, the winner will be decided, by me, on artistic merit. This can be gained by having a theme to your pictures (e.g. "Unique Skeletons", "One From Each Act", "The Forgotten Tower Five" or "Desert Scenes - Night". Use your imagination!)
10. Characters may submit multiple entries. However, once a picture has been submitted, it may not be used as part of another entry.

Entries are accepted from now until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday 28 February 2006.
