On this page you can submit ideas for future official Elftown competitions. Ideally, competitions should encourage Elftowners to create new works of art, so try to use as much detail as you can when submitting.
This page takes suggestions for official competitions, which are hosted by the Council. If you are interested in hosting (or advertising) your own personal contest then check out art contests, writing contests, photo contests and MC.

Should your submission be used, you will be given one credit towards a Builders badge per submission.
(Not applicable to submissions used before July 30, 2014. Sorry!)

Elftown Name: [Athilea]

Title/theme: Take me to Elftown
Description: entrants need to describe Elftown as they see it, telling us about the places, the people, the smells, the sounds, everything that goes with a good description. I want to read something that makes me feel like I'm standing right in the middle of a bustling fantasy town, something that makes me taste the smell of the air on the tip of my tongue while sitting in front of my computer, something that makes me see the Elftown inhabitants in front of my inner eye as clearly as if they stood before me. I want, for the small amount of time it takes to read a description, to be in Elftown.

Title/theme: Nightmares
Description: In short--nightmares. Be they funny, horrifying, epiphanies, or just completely strange. Anything you find entertaining that seems real, but only to wake up to realize it was nothing but your own imagination at work. So you can either laugh, or cry-- I guess it depends on what this 'nightmare' was.
Elftown Name: [Ramirez]

The competition will help members get a badge and also help them get their wiki out there for people to see. While this may sound similar to the featured wiki, it is not.

Elftown Name: [Mortified Penguin]

Title/Theme: Make Your Own Adventure/Maze Contest!
Description: This would be a competition where members would enter a series of wikis related to a topic. The topic could be anything from trying to find your way to the Christmas Art Contest on Elftown or trying to find your way to the Hanukkah Art Contest on Elftown! Similar to Maze of Guile, each person would start off with a single wiki containing an action that corresponds to the topic. For example, with a topic like, "You are lost in the woods and don't know how to get out. You..." the wiki submission could be something like: Pull out your sword and strike down your dwarf companion for no particular reason. Then, on this wiki, the owner would tell the story of what happened by choosing this option (clicking this wiki) and list new possibilities about what could happen next in the form of other wikis. So, on Pull out your sword and strike down your dwarf companion for no particular reason, the owner would put something like, "You have killed Derrik, your dwarf friend. His ghost slowly rises from his corpse. You..." and that could be followed by more options to choose, like: Slay the ghost with your Ghost Sword™, Loot the corpse for valuables, Hold an erotic funeral. Eventually, one of your various wiki paths would lead to the end of your story/maze that deals with how you (the player) finally found your way out of the woods (or whatever the original topic may have been). After all this, all of the entries will be added together and placed on Mainstreet under the topic, where anybody who wants to can enjoy everyone's combined efforts by venturing into the community Roleplaying game/Make your own adventure/Maze and trying to find their way out of the woods (or whatever).
