Goonstation Monthly Contest: March Edition
Hello and welcome to March!

I'm sure that you all could use some refreshments after all that writing you did for February's contest. Luckily, this month's contest is about designing a new Grones soda! You just need to submit two things:
  • The chems that go in it and their amounts. While Grones soda bottles fit 50 units, 20 of those are taken up by cola, so you really have a maximum of 30 units to work with. You can have whatever non-explosive chems you like in whatever amounts, but do be reasonable. Phlogiston for a "Lava Moon Summer Day" bottle would be fine, but QGP or omegazine just because is not.
  • A name for the soda. It can be as short or as long as you like, though we obviously don't want an entire script or novel. Hopefully it won't be a problem, but it should also follow our rules against bigotry and sexual content.
Optionally, while all sodas currently use the same sprite, you can also design a bottle label. Our current sprite for the Grones bottle looks like this:

Here are some examples of current Grones sodas in the game: "Awesome Asbestos Candy Apple" (10 units of lithium), "Cool Keratin Rush" (10 units of hairgrownium), and "Minty Restraining Order Pepper Spray" (10 units of capsaicin).

Submissions will be accepted until March 27th!. That's three weeks from today! Feel free to enter multiple submissions but make it clear which one is eligible for contest voting. Ideally we won't need to use it, but we do reserve the right to disqualify entries if they break contest and/or server rules.

There will be stickers for the top 7 winners, as usual! The winners will also, naturally, have their drinks added to the game, along with the associated sprites if applicable. All participants will get a cool medal, and the contest winners will get an even cooler one that lets you shelterbee in-game and in OOC. (If you're wondering about the medal Discord role, it is unrelated.)

Good luck!

Grones soda: Rapid rushing Rat poison flavor!

20u cola
10u cheese
20u aranesp (gives stamina buffs but also deals tox and oxy damage)

On examine it says something along the lines of: You remember when Grones tried to branch out of soda, guess this stuff just wasnt strong enough for the new line.

I would make a little rat skull and crossbones label for it but ive got no idea how to sprote

Edit: now that im thinking about it 20u of aranesp might be a biiiit much but thats probably fine grones is just manufacturing for some very large rats

That would end up making jenkem, but I like the attention to detail. :P


As for my current suggestion:

Grones Soda - Shitter Lemon Terror Parade flavour

7,5u lemon juice*
7,5u bitters*
5u salt
5u toxic slurry
5u crime

Here's a quick recolour label, I don't think there's much I can do while keeping the G intact.

I don't know if crime being a secret chem would be an issue, but if so you could do 7,5u of the 4 other ingredients instead. I like to think that the bitters + slurry would make it require some refinement for serious use anyway. :P

*we don't have a proper bitter lemon chem, so this'll have to do instead. I wanted to make one for a while (+a shitter lemon drink, this is a pun-driven endeavor) but I can always do that if this doesn't win :P
