Pierse, this is not an art contest. It is a simply contest of wit. You are supposed to express your wit by coming up with a nice caption to the original form of the image. :)

Lara: Larson! I'd really like to punch you for that...

Natla: Now, now, that is my privilege.

Lara: I know how we decide who get's to knock him out. A match of rock-paper-scissors. (*Considers this a moment.*) No lizard, no Spock.

Natla: Okay.

Lara & Natla: Rock! Paper! Scissors!

Lara gestures "rock".

Natla: Scion!

Lara groans.

Natla: HAHA, gotcha. Scion beats all. You didn't say anything about not using Scion.

Lara: You cheat.

24th Mar 2010, 18:13
Yes, Lara. The Scion holds untold power. I could, if I so desired, cause Mel Gibson to become handsome, Paris Hilton to become smart and Oprah Winfrey to become thin again... Okay, maybe not Oprah.

24th Mar 2010, 18:41
Natla: Ummmm, Lara, this Scion is counterfeit.

Natla: Are you jelous now Lara?
Lara: Nah, I'm just worried.
Natla: About me having the Scion right?
Lara: Of course not, it's just that...
Natla: That...?
Lara: Just look at the time, the tea time has passed, and it's all thanks to you and your obstinance
Natla: Oh....

25th Mar 2010, 05:24
It's been a while since I posted but here goes.

Lara:What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
Natla: No, Lara. I'm trying to tell you that when you're ready, you won't have to.
Lara: What?
Natla: *Steals Scion* YOINK! haha sucker

25th Mar 2010, 06:14
I've got a lovely bunch o' coconuts!


Lara: I feel like I've seen this all...
Natla: It is a game you've played before
Lara: You know what they say.
Natla: What's that?
Lara: Its a world of laughter a world of, a world of tears
Natla: Oh god.
Lara: Its a world of hope, its a world of fear
Natla: Dont even-
Lara: There's so much that we share!
Natla: Stop it, Lara!

25th Mar 2010, 09:25
Oh this is so cool, lucky I didn't miss out. :D

http://i622.photobucket.com/albums/tt306/Max2810/Online%20Stuff/baddies149.jpg (http://s622.photobucket.com/albums/tt306/Max2810/Online%20Stuff/?action=view&current=baddies149.jpg)

Natla: ...and here is the Scion behind your ear.

Lara: OMG, NO WAY! How did you do that?!

Natla: Ah but Lara, an Atlantean Queen never
reveals her secrets.


Ok, another one:

Natla: Well done Lara. You've delivered the most powerful weapon in existence right into my hands. With all the knowledge of the ancients I will be able to level hills and destroy any demi-god that gets in my way.

Lara: *mutters* Guess you didn't hear about Mjolnir then...

Natla: Sorry, what was that?

Lara: Oh nothing, nothing....*twiddles thumbs*


And another:

Lara: Oh whoops! The 'Keep Scion' cheat code was Hold down B - Up, Left, Left, Down, Up, Left.


And another:

Lara: No wait, this can't be right. Ok, lets retrace my steps. I defeated the fleshy mutants, shimmeyed my butt around the columns, ahuh, then I inserted the pieces and got the Scion fragment, tomb collapsing - time to scidaddle on out, smoked just a bit of that Scion goodness, dreamyland......oh crap.


Hey, why not?:

Natla: Hey, hey Lara check this out! I think if you stare at this Scion just right it works like a magic eye trick and you can see the secrets of the next game!"

Lara: Yeah ok, Natla....I think you're acting just a wee bit insane. I undestand you want to know if you're included in the next game but I don't think that's the answer....


Ok, just one more. :D

Lara: *Directed at forum readers* You know, second time round and I can still act surprised. Now that is talent.

25th Mar 2010, 10:22

Natla: Behold the 2 Terabyte version which can hold 4 million songs!


Lara: Did you have the red eye reduction on?


Natla: I hope you like winter sports Lara because I've brought you something to scion....get it?...ski-on...oh never mind.

25th Mar 2010, 14:31
Lara: Don't you have a feeling of Deja' vu?

Natla: Yeah... But I had shorter hair and you triangle boobs.


Natla: If you don't send this e-mail to 25 friends, a sexier version of you will explode your manor.

Lara: Yeah, right...

25th Mar 2010, 15:00

Natla: Yes Lara, look into the all seeing Scion and witness that in the future you will be the star of an arcade, isometric view game not bearing the Tomb Raider moniker.......yes well you may be surprised!

4º Entry...

Lara: Natla! Give me the Scion! Or I'll shoot you!
Natla: Don't waste your bullets, Lara. I'm The Atlantean Queen! I'm immortal!
Lara: You, immortal?? I'm sorry for spoiler Natla, but you will die in final of this game. And what about me? I already fell from a building, I've been eaten by dinosaurs, have already taken thousands of shots and I'm still here! So tell me... Who is immortal??

25th Mar 2010, 17:43

26th Mar 2010, 03:33

Natla: Here Lara I hold two artifacts in my hand, a blue one and a red one. Each represents a choice. You take the red artifact - the game ends. You wake up in your mansion and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red artifact - you claim a seat beside me and together we will rule the Seventh Age! It's your choice Lara, which do you pick?

Voice of first person view: Finally we're putting an end to your grave robbing shenanigans Croft, you're going away for along time. Cuff 'em Natla.

26th Mar 2010, 13:50
This is a great idea for a contest! ok, I don't have photoshop, so I used bubblecaption to add captions to the picture. In doing so, they automatically add their stamp to the photo, so I hope that's ok...I'm not trying to plug their website on purpose...

Now, I just have to figure out how to post a picture...it is not showing up when I preview my Post. I'm trying to insert image from my flickr account.


26th Mar 2010, 14:11
Okay, Entry #1. This one is somewhat of an homage to Judith Gibbins - one of the voices of Lara Croft...so if you can, imagine her saying the caption that I've included. I think many of us can identify with this one...


26th Mar 2010, 14:15
Entry #2. (the next few entries are in the spirit of LC: GOL)...

26th Mar 2010, 14:22
Entry #7.


26th Mar 2010, 14:23
Entry #8. (My final entry, unless something else pops into my head)...


26th Mar 2010, 14:27
I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I did not have enough time to read through all the pages.

Now where the hell did you get that from?I thought 100-Watt-light bulbs aren't sold anymore?

(I'm afraid this will only be understood by Europeans, because this law only exists in Europe, as far as I now)

26th Mar 2010, 15:12
Oh, I just found where my entry #7 starts out somewhat similar to Kris's on page 8. My apologies Kris, I hope I'm not stepping on your toes with that one...but if you think I am, just let me know...it wasn't intentional.

26th Mar 2010, 15:17
Natla: Finally I've got the scion...
Lara: Oh Natla... Natla... If you just know...
Natla: Know WHAT?
Lara: That it's just ANOTHER BUG so prepare to be....
*Hard noise incoming*
Lara (sarcasm): Oh, you were deleted before I finished that phrase...

I told That I wouldn't continue but hey, I'm more fresh today, I still have time to make 1 or 2 more if I get something new...

26th Mar 2010, 15:23
Natla: With this new translator I can rule all the lenguages!!! HAHAH!!!!
Lara: Really?...
Natla: Yes, Hai, Of course, Si, Indien, Wenn, Если, Jekk...
Lara: Are you sure you are not using just Google Translator...?

26th Mar 2010, 15:31
Natla: With this new fragance... Feel free, Feel New, Feel... Natla.

Entry N° 6 :D (I think somehow my previous entry dissapeared,wich was this one)

When your entry disappears, I'd like it to stay gone

This is completely rude,I am a little bit sad,not for being deleted(I bet you have a reason)but there's no need to be so bad.I won't try with other entry,I will cross my fingers with the previous ones,but sincerely I feel bad now.

26th Mar 2010, 15:55
Entry #9.


26th Mar 2010, 15:57
Make the circle bigger? What does that even MEAN, anyway?!?

26th Mar 2010, 16:00
The first thing I'm going to do when I become the ruler of the world, is ban hotpants forever!

26th Mar 2010, 16:04
If GOL is successful, Eidos is replacing you with an Aztec Warrior named Totec for Tomb Raider 9 - his rates are less steep. I think he said something about doing the entire job for a couple of jaguar fangs.

26th Mar 2010, 16:05
(OK, all done now - mine are getting lame, LOL.)

26th Mar 2010, 16:11
OK, just to avoid confusion, I'm going to close this while we go through the entries.

Thanks to everyone that took part, I'll post the name of the winner in this thread shortly.

26th Mar 2010, 18:20
OK everyone! The winner has been picked, but before I announce who the (very) lucky Lara fan is, I want to say thanks to all of you who took the time to enter. There were some really great entries and we had a real chuckle picking the winner.

So without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce the winner.

*opens golden envelope*

....and the fantastic 'Art of Tomb Raider' book goes toooooooooo.....

*drum roll*

*drum roll continues*

*it's a long drum roll*

And the winner iiiiis...... Raider126 with this entry:

Caption Entry:
"Don't you just HATE it when you're busy raiding Tombs and you remember you left the iron on!"

It made us lol because it's so silly and it fits Lara's expression perfectly. So, well done Raider126, I'll drop you a PM and we can sort out the prize.

To everyone else that took part but didn't win, don't worry because there'll be more competitions and chances to win coming in the run up to the release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light :)
