Taking 3rd place will be The Collar of Davy Crockett. It was a lame design with it basically being a Pendant of Life, but the other two (Lost Lariat and Snow Cone) sucked more.

The poll is not available. And will we be voting for the one we would like as position #2 or position #1?

The poll is up now. We will be voting for the #1 position in the poll for the "Worst Legends Artifact" design. The loser of that poll will make spot #2. ;)

Man, this is a hard one. They literally both deserve to win. :shock: I've already voted, and I'm keeping my vote a secret. I'm assuming that's what everyone else is doing too.

What are the odds?  :lol: Okay, I guess I will have to figure out something as a tiebreaker. I won't reveal my vote just yet either until I come up with a fair plan.  ;)

Well, I changed the "poll expiration" date, since I figured it was gonna be a tie. I guess we wait another day to determine who wins?

You can go ahead and vote now. I originally set the poll date for 24 hours, but PPF extended it for another whole day. If anything, your vote will be the tiebreaker. ;)

Anyways, I am going to reveal my vote now. I voted for the Snow Cone as the worst Legends artifact. It was originally going to go with the Lost Lariat, but when you think about the Snow Cone, there is so many things wrong with it. First off, the Snow Cone should be melted if it has been sitting in the temple for a long period of time. Secondly, it does not look like any Snow Cone that I have ever seen. More like a cup of overflowing beer. And finally, what on earth possessed the producers to use this idea as an artifact? Why would anyone want to collect a dessert as an artifact?

The Lost Lariat is pretty uninspiring also. The only reason I didn't vote for it because at least it made sense for the legend it was about. But still, a rope as an artifact? I am sure it took the producers many sleepless nights to come up with that one.  :roll:

Aw, Snow Cone didn't win. :(

I guess you know what I voted for. I don't think Lost Lariat is a bad winner though. I just wanted Snow Cone to win because it looked absurd and it looked phony. At least the Lariat is exactly what it was. The Snow Cone doesn't even look like one.

I was going to say that you could keep the voting open, but it looks like it's over now.

But yeah, the only reason I voted for the Lost Lariat was because it was uninspiring.  Even if it did go with the theme of what the legend was about, the bottom line is that it was just a stupid rope.  To represent Pecos Bill, they could have gotten a pair of boots, a hat, a bandanna--anything but a rope.  At least the Snow Cone looked like they put a little effort into making it (granted, it was just a pot with some yellow mush inside, but that's better than nothing).

I also voted for Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat. I mean, it was just a rope, seriously. Granted, The Snow Cone of Mt. Kilimanjaro was pretty lame and uninspiring too. But, a half assed looking snow cone is at least a little less lame than a mere rope. Either way, it looks like Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat won. And I'm glad it did. Even though I wouldn't have minded if both artifacts won.
