Currently in Shroud of the Avatar, one of the more enthusiastic and active parts of the community are those decorating their homes. There is a multitude of reasons for this, but let’s look at it from a logical and straightforward standpoint.
The game is in pre-release stages right now and has not officially launched. Personally, I could play for a year or more the way it is now and not get bored! I think it’s about choosing your attitude and looking at what is present instead of focusing on what is still in development, not going to be done, or isn’t coming for a long time yet.
However one of the most flushed out aspects of the game IS the housing element. Therefore it is straightforward that the players most interested in that would also currently be the ones most interested in the housing. As other areas are fully launched the player interest for those areas will also increase. I LOVE being in a game to be a part of that emerging development.
So knowing all that it’s time to decorate! What better way to do that then to have contests?
From Berek over on the forums:
Get those creative house decorating ideas ready, Avatars! Show the community the curb appeal you can bring to a town as folk walk down the street, and the wonder in the eyes of those who step in to visit your cozy abode. Throw it all up on the walls for this contest and see what sticks!
As the contest progresses, each week on either Monday or Tuesday, we will announce on social media the latest submissions in a Facebook screenshot gallery. Peruse the screenshots there, or go to the forum submission thread to find coordinates to the homes so you can tour them in-game!
