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.

2010-04-19 [Kyrinn]: Oooookay, I have one I can enter, just want to clarify: This is a character Ive played from a roleplaying game called Slayers d20. Can I submit this character? I can certify it is completely original in design, just that it was created for this game system. Or, does this have to be a strictly online rp character? 

2010-04-20 [Veltzeh]: Hmm, I should've asked that too. Oh well, I don't think I can change anymore.

2010-04-20 [Kyrinn]: Me too. since no one has commented Ill jsut have to assume its alright because I will be at work til after the deadline today anyway. :)

2010-04-20 [wicked fae mage]: *Eagerly waits*

2010-04-20 [Alexi Ice]: As long as it's your character. I belive RPG is a general idea, thought I am not the mod of this particular contest. As long as this character is yours weather it's from an online or real life RPG or like my character is from a series of stories I write. As long as it's not stolen work or anything, it should be fine. Considering in the layout there is not a link for the RPG which he/she is a character on ^^

2010-04-21 [NOOOPE]:


[Chel] and I have finals this week. So, this week with be dedicated to reading and judging the bios, and the interviews will be the 30th to the 5th. In that time you have to answer at least 10 questions. You will be started off with one question, and once you answer, the mods will promptly ask the next one.

2010-05-01 [wicked fae mage]: *gets into dark age clothing and sits stewing wizardly ingredients*

2010-05-04 [Yuriona]: Uh... today is the 4th and I don't think any interviews have started yet. So does this mean they won't happen until after the fifth now?

2010-05-04 [Alexi Ice]: The mods for this contest have not commented in a while O.o I wonder where they went?

2010-05-04 [Rice]: No doubt busy with school work or life, as most people tend to get. I'm sure this will all take place in due time. PATIENCE! :D

2010-05-04 [wicked fae mage]: Patience is a virtue except when the enemy has a battering ram outside the door.

2010-05-04 [Rice]: Good thing we don't have an enemy then aye. Means we can all sit back and chill.

2010-05-04 [wicked fae mage]: Right...*chills*

2010-05-04 [Alexi Ice]: I have brought it up to the Council. Hopefully they will at least annouce what's happening sometime soon. Until then please check out a few of our other contests. Origional character contest, ECM centaur, EPRM usually has something going on. Thanks.

2010-05-04 [NOOOPE]:

Shit just got serious in real life. Unforeseen events have lead me to push the questioning forward yet another week. I swear, that's the last time things'll get bumped. This will happen, starting next Monday

2010-05-04 [Mortified Penguin]: No need to shout. I'll do the questioning for you.

2010-05-05 [Alexi Ice]: Thanks for the announcement.

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