  • Hey Folks

    Some excellent submissions made this very difficult to judge.

    We of course had to do some image checking ourselves to look up copyright etc which was also useful in helping us spot those images taken straight from the internet and posted here with just minor edits.

    Judging was done by myself with some assistance from the mod team.

    As stated everyone gets 10 gold – just for posting. If you did not give your server details please send me a PM with the location you wish to receive your gold (must be on a UK server)

    In first place receiving 150 gold is:

    We loved the simplicity of this image and the fact that some thought had gone into making something that both summed up Travian and the Halloween theme. Not sure a ghost has a shadow but overall an excellent entry

    In Second place receiving 50 gold is:

    Spooky, a very clever entry of blended images but would have loved the detailing to be slightly clearer and the logo seemed too bright compared to the rest of the image. A very close second place, well done.

    There were many similar type images we have seen but the background image appeared crisp and the way the images were positioned ensured they did not look out of place.

    Well done to everyone who took part.

    If you did not specify a US server to receive your gold on please send me a PM with server/account details
