    Should be a Round Shield, Square Shield, and a Kite Shield. They're different types, off the top of my head.

    Egoville sounds like a good place to go first.
    Then I'l go to Bizarro-Fantasy Land.

    Right o, had a dabble at a shield.

    Used the ships idea cause the masts resemble crucifixes (death), the ravens came from DkS, there's some sun praising potential in the background and the sea just links with the new sea element.

    The link is now working, you have to be signed into Facebook to view it.

    Basically it goes as following.

    EU players will design a Round shield.

    JP players will design a kite shield.

    NA player will design a greatshield.

    Spoiler:

    There are 28 days left about to submit designs, you can submit 3 designs and that is the limit.


    By the way, without Facebook you can't access the App and see the templates likely.

    So I uploaded the templates to Photobucket and you can save_as the image from there.

    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    If you just want to mess around with it and see the Template.

    I'll probably make my face vortex one and bear one onto the great shield template and then maybe try to come up with an awesome idea for the third. Hopefully concept can go far since my concept is better than my ability to convey it....

    Oh NA is going to do a greatshield, well seeing the template for it, I have one idea that works maybe, sadly the other idea could work as a greatshield but would be more similiarly shaped to that of Artorias's greatshield. Oh well I guess, still probably draw that one for the fun of things and enter the other one. Better go get started.

    The only problem I have is that again it is a contest on Facebook. Not really a fair contest when someone probably has hundreds of friends that he can make vote on his design who don't even know what the game is about. But oh well I guess, still will enter and hope for the best that won't happen.

    NA doesn't seem to be offering a shield replica prize. That would be a shame.....

    It would be a great conversation piece in my office

    So, yeah, I have this shield, how does it look to you guys? Special, in any way? Maybe, you can bask in the sheer awesomeness of a massive greatshield, while I can use to block you out of my life. happy
