Hello Tricksters! Celebrate Easter & Earth Day with us and come participate in this coming April's event, the Easter & Earth Day Comic Strip Contest! You will be tasked to make your own comic strip using in-game screenshots and use April's holidays as your inspiration. You have full creative freedom! Only the top 20 best comic strips will be judged by the community, so do your best and give it your all!
Important: All entries must be posted on this thread. Event discussion will be held in a different thread in the General Discussion sub-forum. Click here to go there. All posts on this thread that aren't entries for the event will be deleted. This thread will be locked on the last day of entry submission which is on April 22, 2015 (11:59 pm, Server Time).

- You are allowed to use other images such as memes or stock photos, as long as the majority of your comic strip is made up of in-game screenshots.
