Welcome to the winners list! I’ll begin by saying this was by far the most difficult contest to judge. You all clearly put so much love, energy, time, and passion into your temples. Our judges over all Funcom offices debated all week, but we’ve finally declared the winners. Even if your temple isn’t listed here, we are giving you a huge round of applause and thank you for participating in this. We’ll be posting some of your temples on our social media accounts so keep an eye out there!
If you don’t see your entry here, PLEASE share it with us! Reply to this thread with your gorgeous buildings or link to a thread if you’ve already posted it. Some winners that were chosen don’t have a name, so if you see yours here please let us know so we can properly credit you.
Additionally, we received 5x the amount of PC entries than we did for PlayStation and Xbox. Due to this, we’ll be picking five PC runner ups instead of just three.
Another huge shoutout and thanks to Razer for providing prizes to our first place winners! We will be in contact with the winners for your information to get you your spoils.
For those curious, here’s a little pie chart with percentages of what God/Goddesses everyone chose!
Temple of Ymir by DeasoA small excerpt from the beautiful write up:“Visitors and pilgrims to the temple arrive in winter to find wisdom in the visions of the Seers and to offer up value or bounty to Ymir in exchange for blessings and strength throughout the coming year. The lowliest bring meager offerings of vegetable harvests and game bounty, while the most heroic of warriors bring their prized captured spoils-of-war, such as axes, helmets of fallen heroes and plundered treasures.Before beginning the long journey back down the mountain visitors are able to regain their strength at the inviting hearth, or by staying the night in the temple’s communal sleeping area.”

The First Temple of Derketo“These ancient stones have witnessed the rise of the Witch Queen and the decline of the elders and the perversion of Derketos faith. She is the knife edge between pleasure and pain, the mistress of seduction and addition, death and rebirth not the wh ore of snakes, so bow and give thanks bone, light and jade and yield your body and soul to her and revel in her joy… But show disrespect and Derketos Fall awaits you or the bite of the lash as we break, as for the followers of the Serpent come if you dare we will ply you with honeyed wine pay no heed to the lotus we grow and scream in rhapsody as lust takes you cut by cut may Set choke on your bloated souls.”

Temple to Crom“Since Crom has no shrine I went with the empty throne just steel skull in the seat.I decided to go with forges and blacksmith tables. And anything I could think of to bring in the CROM look. The roof has opening up top like a star.”
