Millennial Post


Welcome to the first post of 2009 and the 1000th post on Inner Sanctum of the Ninveah!

Almost 4 years of posting stretching from my days in Warhammer 40K to my recent conversion to Eve Online, its been a wild ride with more yet to come.

To celebrate the event I'm having a lottery giveaway to my faithful readers. That's right, I'm giving away some stuff. Good stuff!

Here's the deal: post a comment to this thread with a number between 1 and 100. Each prize will have pre-picked number and the commenter with the closest number wins the prize. Also note that to make the number picking fair, 100 is adjacent to 1 in a circular strip, i.e. 11 as a pick is closer to 97 than it is to 30.

So what are the prizes?

First Prize: Minmatar Prowler Blockade Runner Transport Ship

Second Prize: Guristas Worm Faction Frigate

Third Prize: Max Run Drake Battlecruiser BPC (With decent ME)

Fourth Prize: One Run Cerberus Heavy Assault Cruiser BPC (ME = -4)

Fifth Prize (aka the Booby Prize): One Janitor

Winning numbers have been selected from a generator on Random.org and assigned to the prizes. If there are any ties for closest number to a prize, I'll do a coin flip to pick the winner and might have a consolation prize for the loser. Commenters can only win one prize and their number will be removed from consideration after winning a prize. I will resolve the winners in order from First prize to fifth.

Ok, I think that covers everything... OH! One last thing, this contest will end when I get to work on Monday morning, Jan 12 and load up the comments. So you have to then!

Please only one entry per person, we're working on the honour system so don't make me regret it.

Good luck!

    Congrats on 1000 posts. Your blog is my starting point for Eve blogs, and I jump from there to many of the others you link two and/or who follow your blog.

    Being Minmatar, I want the Prowler! But with my luck I'll be lucky to get the janitor. Nevertheless, I'm in with 57.

    Congrats again, wishing you a thousand more.

    I call out the number 12 because it's my lucky number, though I think the Cerb BPC > the max Drake BPC *hint hint*!

  25. 54, because someone already had my perfect number. As an aside do you're opponents walk their titans through the corner of buildings also, or are you only marine size 40K.

  26. Cj Didge: When we played Epic our groupd tried to keep it easy going and fun, but if they tried to walk through the corner of a building there were penalties built into the rules for dangerous terrain higher than their knees.
