Click here to see the winners.

That's right! We've got contests for houses coming out of our wizard hats around these parts, y'all, (be sure to check all your favorite fansites and blogs), and I'm lucky enough to be giving away 15 of the . . . AWESOME . . . RARE . . . CRAFTING-EXCLUSIVE Watchtower Hall House. You usually can't get these without putting in some serious time and gold AND patience . . . until NOW, and (as far as I know) ONLY here on The Friendly Necromancer blog WITHOUT all the pain and hassle you would normally have to go through to get one of these bad boys. :)

The Watchtower Hall House was the first crafted house to ever come out, and Bailey was so excited about it, she crafted one up herself. I remember the pains she went through to get that thing. /shiver . . . this is pre-plants crafting we're talking about here too. You had to work for those reagents back then. :)

Check out how her house is looking post-decorating!

Kitchen:


View of the Tower:


Entrance way:

Are you ready to win one of these for yourself? YEAH? YEAH?!?! Ok then! Without further rambling, here's what you have to do to be entered to win a Watchtower Hall House:
1- Decorate your dorm room with a Grizzleheim theme.
2- Take a screenshot of your Grizzleheim-theme dorm room.
3- Send the best screenshot (only one screenshot please) to thefriendlynecromancer@gmail.com sometime before 11:59 p.m. PST on 20 August 2011.

We will be judging the screenshots and will announce the winners on 22 August. Prizes will be distributed sometime before the end of the day on 23 August.

10 houses will be awarded to those with the best dorm screenshot. 5 houses will be randomly raffled to all those who enter the contest. So, don't feel like you shouldn't participate if you don't have a knack for decorating (just do your best).

Good luck and happy dueling!

What? the WatchTower hall, a crown shop item? I crafted that house and now you can just buy it? it won't show the mark of your great achievement of having the gold,time, and most importantly the patience of crafting the house, next thing you know thy'll be selling the celestia crafted house on the crowns shop.

@anon: I don't think it's a crown shop item now? I just have some codes from KingsIsle for a few. :)

Does it have to be your dorm room that you decorate, or can it be a room in your house as well?

Amanda Skyweaver said...

Thank you and KI so much for having this contest! I was wondering- are we are going to get a message to let us know you received our entry for the contest? I realize you must be getting a ton of entries, but it's such a major contest I would hate to think my entry got lost somewhere in cyberspace.

Stingite said...

@Unknown: by August 20

@joshuaawesome: print screen button, then find it in your Wizard101 folder in the Documents directory.

@Amanda: I went ahead this morning and e-mailed all the people who have entered to let them know that I had received their entry. hopefully you'll receive that e-mail soon. :)

Amanda Skyweaver said...

Thanks so much Friendly! (I got my email!) Sorry for rambling in my entry (I tend to do that...) Best of luck to all who enter!

shiarie said...

I just want to say good luck to all who enter. I want to actually craft the house and have been saving those reagents...:)BUT,I LOVE THE PICTURES YOU POSTED OF BAILY'S WATCHTOWER HALL!!! So, seriously, I got some great ideas on how to use some of my stuff to decorate my houses. Would have never thought of using all those extra crates as counters. :)
