[Nao] Monthly Ornac Music Contests

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

My guild, Ornac, currently hosts music contest every month (on a sunday) on Tarlach. :D Here's a video recap of the most recent one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5Ja6vd-LQ4

Contests are held at Emain Macha stage around 3pmPST, ch7. Each contest has a theme that can give you bonus points if your song fits it. In order to enter, you must use a song that you've made, no copypastas. First prize is a steam card, 2m gold and a composition item if you need one. :) The next contest is scheduled for May 20th with the theme "Baroque"! :D

Main forum with more detailed rules here: http://forums.mabinogi.nexon.net/discussion/1177/ornac-events-and-offerings

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hello all!

I am happy to announce that the winners of the 19th Monthly Ornac Music Contest actually was tied between Levont who played Innosense from Tales of Zestiria the X by FLOW as a solo, and Arianette who played Live and Learn from Sonic Adventure 2 by Crush40 in a jam! They walked away with the first prize of 20K NX (shared between them), 2m gold, and the Unknown Song v.2 composition book for Arianette!

 

Second Prize of 1m gold went to Maggs who played Rock and Roll All Night by Kiss in a jam!

Third prize of 500k gold went to Fabeola who played Calling from Parasite Eve by Yoko Shimomura as a solo!

Participation prize of 100k gold went to Peachy whose entry was played by Selket. Their song was Illusion of White by Hayato (an old school mabi player apparently :3) as a solo.

 

The next music contest will be held August 19th, 2018, with the bonus theme “Melancholic/Sad.” ;_; BUT this next contest is expected to be the “bard-off” event at the next Tarlach Fair! ? That said, we are planning to hold this bard-off back at the usual place, the Lake Calida Mana Tunnel, at the same time, 3pm PST.

If plans change, we’ll let you guys know. Please join us every Sunday until the contest for freeplay concert at lake calida around the same time as usual. :3

*Don’t forget about the raffle for those that attend! You could win a musical item!*

Please let us know if you have any questions. :)

Hello all!

I just wanted to mention if there happens to be bards out there that want to participate in the contest but cannot attend due to Sundays not working…or the time not working with their schedules, you now have an option to submit song scrolls beforehand! Whether you have your friends play for you, or would like the judges to play for you, we’d be happy to do so as long as we are notified of your absence a day before the contest. In this situation, we must be contacted by the composer of the song scrolls, not just friends. However, be sure to tell your friends that YOU are the only one eligible for the prize. ;)

Hello all!

This is just a quick remind of the Tarlach Fair happening Sunday, August 19th! The bard-off/music contest will be held at the Lake Calida Mana Tunnel around 3pm PST on ch7. To those that want to participate, please arrive early if you still need your scrolls checked or still need to find people to help you play.

Hello all!

 

I am happy to announce that the winner of the 20th Monthly Ornac Music Contest/Tarlach Fair Bard-off was Maggs who played Empty Chairs at Empty Tables from Les Miserables by Claude-Michael Shoenberg in a jam! She won first prize of 2m gold, unknown song vol.1 and a 20kNX+ code.

Second Prize of 1m gold went to Ariannette who played Our Parting from Sword Art Online in a jam!

Third prize of 500k gold went to Xeirox who played Deemo – Goodbye by Chamber Chu as a solo!

 

The next music contest will be held September 23rd, 2018, with the bonus theme of “Shanty/Pirate-esque”. The location is back at Emain Macha Stage, but we will now meet on CHANNEL 3! The contest will still start around 3pmPST. Judge pool will be: Retsamehtmai, Maggs, Laeryhn, Buns and Hawkleaf.

**Judge Availability: Message or note us in game to get your scrolls checked**

+   Retsamehtmai: Availability varies due to work, usually on from 12a to 3a EST but may be on other times as well :3

+   Maggs/Rifka: Usually on Rifka(main) from 10p to 12a EST

+   Laeryhn: 2-4 hours before a contest

+   Buns/Zerodeath: Varies

+   Hawkleaf: Varies

 

We finally got some community feedback, and we’ve come up with some things to try to make these contests a bit more fun! First off, participants will now be separated into two categories: jam and solo. We figure it’s better if the often more robust jams compete against other jams and vice versa if possible. We’re also adding a “freeplay” category where you can play any song you want even if you did not compose it! :D The only thing we ask is that you are able to tell us who the mabi composer is. ;) Unfortunately, freeplayers are not eligible for grand prizes, but still get 20k gold for performing. The judge pool will now be changing somewhat as well. The winner of a contest will now be a judge in the next one so we have a bit more variety! Also, if there is ever a time where a participant wants a critique of their song, or is curious about why their song is placed where it is, don’t hesitate to ask a judge. We’d be happy to discuss it with you. :3

 

Anyway, please join us every Sunday until the contest for freeplay concert at lake calida around the same time as usual. :3

*Don’t forget about the raffle for those that attend! You could win a musical item!*

Please let us know if you have any questions. :)

Hello all!

I am happy to announce that the winner of the 21st Monthly Ornac Music “Contest” was Aliami who played Lost Boy by Ruth B in a jam! He won by default since no one else participated! XD The Jam category grand prize was 2m gold, and 10k NX. He did not take a composition item. As this contest’s winner, Aliami will be judging in the next one.

 

Thank you to our freeplayers:

+   mupridalurp played Last to Know (Three Days Grace) composed by them

+   Senpaix3 played Broken Moon (Touhou) composed by Rusticuffs

+   Arianette played Spider Dance “dueling pianos version” (Undertale) composed by them

+   Spiritshade played Dragonborn “guitar version” (Skyrim) composed by them

All freeplayers got 20k gold as a thank you for playing.

 

The next music contest will be held October 21st, 2018, with the bonus theme of “Spoooookyyyyyy” :O. Contest location will be Emain Macha Stage on CHANNEL 3! The contest will still start around 3pmPST. Judge pool will be: Retsamehtmai, Laeryhn, Aliami and 2 others. Please try to contact a judge to get your scrolls approved before the contest if possible.

 

A quick note about the contest themes and how they apply to scoring. Think of the themes only as a bonus, not a requirement. If you have a really nice song, you can still win against somebody who fits the theme, but DOESN’T have a nice song. ;)

 

Anyway, please join us every Sunday until the contest for a freeplay concert at the Lake Calida Mana Tunnel around 3pmPST. :3

*Don’t forget about the raffle for those that attend! You could win a musical item!*
