Character Challenge


Contest Closed


[Ms. Steel] with her character Zinnia Emere Schanfoor


Here in Elftown there have been drawing contests, photography contests, colouring contests, prose contests, poetry contests, clothes-designing contests... contests that cater for the interests of this community.

Except one. In a community teeming with Role-players, where is the contest to decide the best? I have seen many people claim to be excellent role-players, only the be disappointed when I saw their skill. I've seen god players, power players and hundreds of Mary Sues. But I have also seen skill, talent, interesting characters and strong role-playing. Now it's time to put that skill and talent to the test.


Moderators: [NOOOPE], [Chel.] & [SilverFire]


How this works:

Each contestant will pick one of their original characters and fill out a character sheet (please use OC Sheet). The contestants will then make a wiki to display this sheet and post it on the Character Submissions page. Once the contest deadline has passed, the judges will go to each individual character page and conduct an interview of your character. Once the interviews are complete, the judges will decide who has created the most interesting character.

The Rules:

1. Do not put artwork on your character sheet. This contest is not about how well you draw or the cool pictures you found on google.

2. During the interview you must respond in character! We are not interviewing you as the rper. We are interviewing your character. If you get this wrong, you will be disqualified. Update: do not write your character sheet in character. You're only in character for the interview.

3. Make your character sheet wikis editable so the judges can post their questions.

4. The character you submit must be your own original character. If the judges feel you are copying a character from a book, movie, etc you will be disqualified.

5. Your character cannot be from a fan setting. That is, they cannot be from a copyrighted universe like Harry Potter or Pokemon.

6. You must answer at least 10 interview questions within a week after the deadline. If you are too busy to do the interview, you will be disqualified.

7. Your character sheet must be between 400 and 900 words in length. Any shorter or longer will be disqualified.

8. You may submit one character only.

2010-05-05 [Duke Devlin]: If you need to push it back again, do it! Real life is important.<3

2010-05-05 [wicked fae mage]: What is this real life everybody speaks of?

2010-05-06 [Duke Devlin]: LMAO Love it. ;)

2010-05-18 [Yuriona]: So... yeah. Still nuttin' happenin' here. I assume everyone's real life has been as stupidly busy as mine has lately. D:

2010-05-18 [SilverFire]: No, we're just doing a preliminary judging of all the characters and discussing them so that we can formulate the best questions to test your ability. Stuff is happening alright, you just can't see it. :P

2010-05-18 [Yuriona]: You can do that? :O I wish I could do stuff invisibly... then I wouldn't have to worry about what to wear. >_>

2010-05-18 [Rice]: But then you're power might run out, and thats how accidents happen. You're walking down the street and BANG you're butt naked surrounded by a photography group taking pictures for evening news.

2010-05-18 [Yuriona]: Assuming that seeing me naked wouldn't make them all scream and go blind instantly. ^__^

2010-05-18 [Rice]: Did I mention that they are also a group of middle-aged balding men who consider seeing a naked woman a sign of the second coming of Jesus?

2010-05-18 [Yuriona]: You mean I'd cause mass hysteria from the belief that the world was coming to an end?? Cool!

2010-05-18 [Rice]: And just with your naked body. That's impressive. Anyway. BACK TO WHAT THIS WIKI IS ABOUT!
Any idea on when the questions will be asked? Just so I can ready myself. *rolls up sleeves*

2010-05-18 [SilverFire]: No, sorry. Hopefully soon (soon being a few days, rather than a few weeks).

2010-05-18 [Rice]: Alright thanks. :F

2010-05-18 [Eyden13]: Hey at least this is a step forward. ^-^

2010-05-18 [Alexi Ice]: There are a few questionaires floating around in diary entries and things that you can take as your character for practice, though. Just to be prepared.

2010-05-18 [Eyden13]: can you sent me the link to one of those. I'd really like to use mine before the questioning.

2010-05-18 [Alexi Ice]: Sure. I used one for a diffent character and posted it in my diary but I know of a couple

2010-05-18 [Veltzeh]: Someone could collect those (or links to them) on one wikipage! :)

2010-05-18 [Alexi Ice]: That would be a good idea!

2010-05-18 [Veltzeh]: I also have a few character questionaries hidden somewhere around my computer, I'll see if I can find them.

2010-05-18 [Eyden13]: Yay!
