ENDED - Community Challenge: December 2017 - A Right Jolly Ol' Elf

Christmas is here and I am certainly in the festive spirit, so as a community we will celebrate with our toy-making North Pole-ites.

So here we go:


This challenge is earning achievements in games that contain elves. Fantasy settings are the most obvious, but I may be convinced on some non-traditional elves. (I’m thinking Melka from Battleborn).

Entry Methods:

  1. You can earn 1 raffle draw for every achievement in a qualified game.

Good luck.

Upcoming months:
January: The Start Of Something New
February: Shortest Month Of The Year
March: TBD

Don’t expect I’ll get too many this month, but why not enter anyway :slight_smile:

  1. Perfectionist achievement in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (EU)
  2. And the winner is… achievement in Kameo: Elements of Power
    (not sure of timestamp on this one, it’s dec 1st in NZDT!, please feel free to discount it if invalid!)
  3. The Fugitive achievement in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (EU)

I think Lord of the Rings achievements should not count here.
Legolas and Elrond are so-called Elves, not Elfs. An Elf shows up in Santa’s workshop, but not in Middle-earth. Those are Elves.
I understand the point of building the plural “Elves” out of Elf although in this context, it’s not correct. Tolkien paid very close attention on having the people of Rivendell called and spelled Elves. If you check the etymological background, it’s similar in German since both languages share a common develpoment to some parts. To me, Legolas belongs to the “Elben”, whereas “Elfen” are the little helpers of Santa Clause.
I also unlocked some achievements in “LEGO The Lord of the Rings”, but haven’t even considered putting them in here.

@Freamwhole - can you clear this up for us?

well, look at the challenge itself, and how the word is being spelt… questionable that anything should be done about this now. in my opinion obviously.
This is further confirmed by Freamwhole confirming that The Stick of Truth is valid, where HIGH JEW ELF KING Kyle is more akeen to Elves than Elfs…

2nd Edit:
Actually, the way the challenge is worded clearly send us to fantasy settings, as opposed to Xmas settings…
Sorry for barging in.

I get your point. The theme of the challenge itself though strongly implies it’s about Santa’s Elfs. The description speaks about fantasy settings. Still I am not happy going the way from: Christmas —> Jolly Ol’ Elf —> Fantasy —> Elves (!= Elfs) in Lord of the Rings.
If fantasy figures as generic Elves/Elfs are accepted, I am fine with that, but it’s still odd.

I understand where @CrunchFlake is coming from; however, due to the lackluster selection of available “ELF” games, I have to side with the general “ELF” and “ELVEN” interpretations so far. Its the spirit of the holidays. This is suppose to be a fun thing to do, to play new games, and interact with others. Lets not get our underwear tied in knots and let’s have some fun! I’d like to see all the games with “ELVES” in them, Santa or not!

Again, I understand both sides, just giving my vote.

Let’s go all out on Elfs and Elves !!! Here we come !!
