    That's an interesting take on the "nature" theme.

    Last I checked, Elune was the goddess of the night elves. And night elves are world-renowned tree-humpers naturists tree lovers.

    So it kinda fits into the theme.

    Kind of a stretch don't ya think? To me, nature would fit more using the night elf building explosion model or the tranquility. The SFX would still be useful nontheless.

    If Starfall is considered nature, than so is this SFX. It's not a stretch at all. :/

    Hmm, starfall in my opinion is not nature-like. It's more of a starry kind of sfx. Well, uniqueness is always a good thing so you definitely have that :) Man, I've really deviated from my normal style of sfx. I've got absolutely no explosions at all :(

    Interesting use of the Divine Shield for the Emerald Portal. I'm not sure if it's intended however, for the death animation to have yellow particles. Also, I would like to say nice edit of Incinerate for your CenarionFury sfx. My favorite was the Emerald Core. Unlike me, you really have some awesome sounding names for your models. Good sfx pack. :)

    Nature Explosion = best SFX ever. I think it's your best one yet :)
    I also like the Cluster Rockets one.

    In would be better to see a higher number of applicants. It seems the sfx department is neglected. It would be nice to see at least 5+ contestants as we do in the other contests. And @ Anything., ty :) Hmm, I'm still debating whether or not I should make a Gaia Wave sfx...

    It's actually a really big edit of Divine shield. :)

    Sorry for double posting but is this damned contest dead? It's been past due for around 10 days now and not a single moderator has spoke of this situation...

    Moderators aren't the problem here. Clearly no one has any ideas for this theme.

    All contestants might as well submit now, unless they've got other ideas that they plan on completing.

    Perhaps next time we should do a poll deciding upon which theme to use in the upcoming contest (if another should continue). That way, every could agree on the theme and no one would be out of ideas.
