5.15.13 DD2 Haiku Contest! Winners will receive beta codes.


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone! Great job to those who submitted to the MS Paint contest, we were blown away by all of the responses!

For our second forum contest we are going to be channeling everyone's inner poet. We would like to hear what you would do for a Dungeon Defenders II beta code. But there's a catch! It must be in haiku form. Haikus are short poems that are divided into three phrases with 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables respectively. For example:

Hamburgers are great
But sloths and fried oreos
The key to my heart

To enter, simply reply to this thread with your original haiku. We will be taking sumbissions till Thursday, May 16th at 1 p.m. EDT. The poet laureates of this contest will recieve DD2 beta codes! Again, submissions will be judged on creativity and originality.

Happy writing!


Wow! You guys make it so hard for us to pick a winner!
Here are the winning submissions

Heart-shaped boxer shorts
Defending dungeons in style
No pants, no problem


Ok you got me
I don't know what i would do
To play this great game

I might kill something
I might eat a bunch of shoes
I might bow to you

The list is endless
Of what i would do for you
I might just love you


I don't understand the rules
but I'm creating good rhymes
so you better like my lines!


Squire's undies are red
Apprentice's hat is blue
Give me a code, I'll cry for it too.


Random stuff are nice
Like giving cheese to mice
or a beta code for me


Forgive me for being needy
I don't mean to sound pushy
but i want to play this game, badly.


I will pray for a code
skip meals just to play
who needs health, anyway?


This is my last haiku
but it won't lack begging
Give me a code, my soul is aching


I lied without remorse
my desperation is limitless
beta access can ease my wickedness


I fought trough DD1
Defeated the old one
will you let me continue?


I tire, time to go to bed
I hope my efforts wont be wasted
goodnight trendy, hope you will bless me.


writing a haiku
I should really be working
it is worth the risk

...

my boss just caught me
palpable disappointment
suddenly no job

now I have more time
for beta testing this game
pony up Trendy


Thanks to everyone who participated!

You are the message.
Public speaking need not be
death by PowerPoint.

Think before you speak.
Words are powerful and they
can't be taken back.

You have found my one
weakness. Word smithing is my
favorite hobby.

Be warned all you who
seek to compete for my code.
It will not end well.

A code I shall have
Take it from me if you dare
I come with vengeance

I see a pony
It has a majestic mane
Swag 'dat mane all up

Wish Good Luck to you

spring fields with snow
breakfast of cottage cheese

Ponies need to be in game
They ate my tacos

I'm the Apprentice. :apprentice:
All my spells were meant for this.
For Etheria!

I'm just a Squire. :squire:
About to get Reinforced.
I forgot my pants. :p

I am a Huntress. :huntress:
Super fast and Agile.
Watch out for my Traps.

I am but a Monk. :monk:
Quiet and silent, I think.
Time for Hero Boost.

Brilliant light of dawn
Clouded by the smoke of war
The battle goes on

-This next one isn't my submission, but still relatively amusing-
I am very bored
I want to play this new game
Give me a key please

I'd do anything
for the long-sought beta of
the best game ever.

Here they come again
Heroes of Etheria
to fight for what's right!

The squire is pantless
Harpoons shoot really quickly
Ogres go down fast

EV tower buff beam
Increase my damage a ton
Control the lane mobs

For a beta key
There's nothing I wouldn't do
Perhaps I'd do a dance

Or I'd sing a song
I'd even eat some paper
And wear a clown suit

Do backflips, cartwheels
Or go streaking in the park
Whatever it takes



And just for the giggles, here's a haiku I made for my fiancee (I am quite the charmer, obviously)...

You are beautiful
Your eyes are like emeralds
Oops, I just farted

All day clean up stool
Rather kill goblin or ghoul
My job so uncool

I'm a nursing student and a nursing assistant. I see a lot of poop, but my job isn't that bad.
