    A New Year has begun, and after a couple months of trying to decide what my next challenge should be, I have finally decided on what I think is a fun and interesting concept!

    Your challenge is pretty straightforward and only has 1 static rule.

    The Challenge : Sitcom Living Rooms

    The Rule : The entry MUST be based off of a living room from a Sitcom.

    This can encompass anything from Seinfeld to Friends, from The Big Bang Theory to Roseanne or even go old school and do something like Happy Days or even I Love Lucy! ;)

    (Actors and books are highly encouraged!)

    That is literally the only rule this time around.

    However, unlike my last challenge there WILL be prizes. With that being said, this challenge will only be open on Maj'Dul, Skyfire, Halls of Fate, and
    Antonia Bayle, as those are the only servers I have prize money on. (Unless some kindly soul would like to donate prize money for Thurgadin, Test, and
    the other servers.)
    First prize will be 100M plat.
    Second prize 50M plat.
    Third prize 20M plat.
    There will be potentially also be an honorary mention. (Which will also be rewarded a prize of undetermined plat.)

    The Challenge is open to solo decorators, pairs, or teams. And there are no sign ups, you may begin decorating as soon as you read this post. The end date
    will be August 30th. (That's right. 6 months to decorate at your leisure!) However if you finish early and want to publish, please feel free to do so, Just be
    sure to let me know the following details:

    House Name : (with or without SCLR)
    City :
    Address or Location :
    Owner / Decorator :
    Sitcom of your Choice :
    Any additional notes you want included :

    If you like you can include SCLR in your published home name, but it is not totally necessary. However, if you would like your home video toured, please
    email the home, location, and title to

    I'm in!!

    So just to be clear - it needs to be any house I have, and main thing is to show just a front view of living room, what the studio audience would see? And we can add actors saying some things from that sitcom?
    Will the judges go in and walk around or no? In case of no any dialogue needs to be spread out into making sense scene and hearable from the "outside" of the set so to speak? Is the size important? or can it be done in a basic Inn?

    Hmm! Good questions, though I don't think the size of the house would matter? /shrug

    If it's just the living room, conceivably we could block off the rest, anywhere from the other room in a 2-room place to the rest of the rooms in like a Kelethin 7-room?

    who's also curious about that... :D
    and who's wondering: do we have enough black, white, and grey furniture for one of the REALLY old sets... :D

    You may use any size home and any home you like!
    I will leave the design of the "set" up to your creative choices. If you'd like to build it as an actual "studio" set-up and show the living room how the audience would see it, I'm perfectly ok with that. If you'd like to use your imaginations and "fill in" the parts of the living rooms that are rarely / never seen, I'm happy with that too! So long as the "core" part of the build is true to the source it's based on.
    I just want everyone to have fun with this challenge and be creative :D

    Ideally, get actual matches of furniture, etc., but if we can't, just do what's possible? :)

    who's worried about reproducing wallpaper... ;->

    I am in!!! Also I can help with prize plat on Thurgadin, but sadly not test as I do not have any money on that one.

    still wondering how to make money on Test other than buying Sacks of Plat :-/

    How about "Jeannie's Bottle" (I Dream of Jeannie)??

    I have a couple of ideas; originally, I was thinking maybe Pee Wee's Playhouse, but that's like a combo living room, kitchen, dining room, etc., reminding me a lot of when the 2-room Qeynos/Freeport places only had literally one room, so I figured it wouldn't quite be "secluded" enough (and trying to find something that would get CLOSE to the crazy stuff he had in there... ;->).

    So, I'll probably go with my second one; should be easier. :D

    (or maybe...a mash-up...? >:->)

    You are more than welcome to do Peewee's Playhouse. In fact I think that sounds super fun. I loved it growing up! ;)

    Gah, if I can...are mash-ups okay? :D

    who has a truly demented idea along those lines... X-D
