Passing the Principle

Build a Prismatic Opticon. Don't panic if you can't cut gems, there are many fellow Egyptians that will trade for them.

Once you have built one, you have the option of tearing it down if you are just looking to pass the principle but not the test.

A tutorial on configuration is located on the Guides Page: Prismatic Opticon Configuration


As judges vote on your opticon, your score is updated. The total score of your opticon is a weighted average of all the judges scores.

Passing the Test

The two highest scoring opticons each week will pass the test, which is announced in the System channel.
