A quick recap of our saga so far:
- Our boss, Tim Clark, is killed innumerable times by Mozû the Blight, a fearsome and relentless orc while playing Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
- "He's immune to arrows, fire, ice, quickly adapts to being vaulted over, and regularly emits disorientating howls," wrote Tim (opens in new tab). "I am being bullied, and it feels bad."
- Humiliated, Tim asks for help from orc-slaying members of the PC Gamer community, and even developers of Shadow of War itself.
- Armed with these techniques, Mozû is unceremoniously killed by Tim's orc henchmen (opens in new tab). RIP, Mozû. Partial credit, Tim.
- In death, Mozû finds unlikely supporters among the PC Gamer staff, becoming an honorary member of the team (opens in new tab), as well as the default avatar for PC Gamer commenters.
Mozû the Blight may be dead, but he can live on as a symbol. That's where you come in.
- GRAND PRIZE: a $75 Steam voucher.
- Runner-up prizes: A copy of a recent game we like — Hollow Knight (opens in new tab), Assassin's Creed: Origins (opens in new tab), Oxygen Not Included (opens in new tab), or Quake Champions (opens in new tab) ($30 Champions Pack).

Here's an example of the sort of thing we're looking for:
To give you a head start, I commissioned two artists, Federica Litrico (opens in new tab) and Tida Kietsungden (opens in new tab) to create portraits of Mozû. You can find full .PSD and high-res JPEG versions of these assets in the Mozû Art Pack (ZIP). You can use these great illustrations as the backdrop for your propaganda.
