Thank you for everyone who participated in the BRIDGE competition! If you completed your bridge and know of a good place where your bridge would work in the main world, let us know! We can move it to your place of choice.

This was one of our most successful BCs in a long time, with nearly 30 plots started.

The vote was extremely close. Bridges were judged on Complexity, Detail, Design, and Originality. AND THE WINNER IS..... *drum roll please*...

Zoncula !!

Please congratulate them next time you see them, and go check out their winning bridge!! We hope it can find a home in the main world.

Our runners up were LunaLion and Wuggeh!

We've given the Yeoman rank access to creative mode. Previously, this was only available to members who had donated. This means that Yeoman and above will no longer need to use Galleria as a source of materials, and may use ‘/gmc’ instead to switch to creative mode.

You'll still need to donate, or earn the rank of Artisan, to enjoy following perks:

- /ascend and /descend navigation commands

- compass jump

- item spawning command

- /more command

Best wishes,

The Shire's Staff Team 😀
