EQII Holiday Haiku Giveaway  

To celebrate Frostfell ZAM has acquired THIRTY-TWO new and exciting Festive Gingerbread Pet item codes to give away and FOUR Station Cash codes for grand prizes! All you have to do is bring us your best Norrathian-themed Holiday Haiku and you could be a winner!

It's been ages since we've had a haiku contest, so let's review: Haiku is a mode of poetry that has 17 syllables in three lines, arranged 5-7-5. The first line has five syllables, the second seven, and the last five. That's over-simplifying a bit for Japanese haiku, but this is Norrath, so let's keep it simple. There's a nice guide over at WikiHow. Examples:

Nathan is a brat

"Have you ever seen a gnoll?"

Stuck tongue made me laugh

Sleigh bells are ringing

Tserrina and Mayong kiss

Under mistletoe

  2. There will be THIRTY-TWO winners.
    • Our FOUR favorite haiku will receive a code for 1000 ($10 USD) Station Cash AND a Festive Gingerbread Pet item code.
    • TWENTY-EIGHT Festive Gingerbread Pet item codes will be given away randomly to entrants who did not win Station Cash.

    • These codes are for ONE Festive Gingerbread Pet, not one per character, so claim wisely!

  8. Winners will be posted here and in the Sweepstakes thread. Winners will be sent their codes via PM on ZAM. To access your PM's, click "Account" on the main menu bar, then select "Private Messages".
  9. We are not responsible for lost codes or codes that sat around for so long they expired. We'll sure try and help, though.
