Character submission deadline: 14th July 2011.


It's time to get your creativity hat on and bring out some of your most loved and unique characters. This contest is for the many members of Elftown who enjoy a good role-play and wish to have their skills put to the test because here we will not only judge your characters profile but how the interact, adapt and generally fit into any situation we throw at you. For this contest we shall be following the plot detailed on Genesis Gauntlet Scenario, please make sure you read the page and understand the setting. :)

Moderators: [Rice], [SilverFire] & [iippo]


How this works:

This contest shall be separated into different rounds, each one testing the participants ability and talent for character creation and role-play.

Round One: Character Creation In the first round you will be required to create a character using the format detailed in Genesis Gauntlet Character Sheet and place them on a separate wiki page. Once the deadline has passed for this stage all characters will be judged on their general uniqueness, depth, suitability to setting and overall impact.

Round Two: Interview The second round will follow with an in-character interview, one of the moderators shall create a suited setting for your character to interact with. Once your interview has begun, you will have one week in which to answer up to 20 questions. Anyone answering less than 10 questions will be disqualified. It shall be judged by your ability to adapt to a situation and stay true to the character you created.

Round Three +: Group RP We shall group together players we believe will compliment each other and observe how you react in a group role-play. As with the second stage a setting and vague plot will be set but with enough room for you to evolve and not feel you character is set in stone. Moderators shall intervene at points to move the story along and provide plot devices. Participants who do not make at least ten posts will be disqualified. How many contestants reach round three will determine how many subsequent rounds there are, if any.

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. 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.

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

4. You may submit one character only.

5. If you want us to put effort into reading your character's bio, then please put effort into writing it. Bios with exceptionally bad spelling and grammar will be disqualified.

6. Participants who fail to fulfil the required level of activity will be disqualified. Please see above for the round descriptions and minimum participation limits of each round.


One winner will be chosen by the moderators.

Participants will receive special ET roleplayers' badges and the winner will receive a coloured version of the same.

2011-05-31 [Alexi Ice]: SO EXCITED!!!

2011-05-31 [Rice]: And I just can't hide it!

2011-05-31 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm about to lose control... *pulls out a gun*

2011-05-31 [Rice]: ..I think I like it. 8)

2011-05-31 [Thunder Cid]: Eeeeee!

2011-06-01 [Evolution X]: .......... And its already started with a song and a safety regulation threat. This should be interesting. And this is the time I realise its too late to enter.

2011-06-01 [Lord Josmar]: Oh man! Im gonna start working on this right now. Just have to make sure I meet that 400 word minimum.

2011-06-01 [Evolution X]: I'm not sure what to do... *sucking on tooth thoughtfully* So many different choices...

2011-06-01 [Lord Josmar]: Are the construct's enhancements limited or are we given a generally free range with them? Same question with the Aeaeans and Extra-terrestrials.

2011-06-01 [Alexi Ice]: Am I just an idiot or am I completely missing the deadline for the first section?

2011-06-01 [Chimes]: After it says that the gauntlet is open. :P Look very closely.

2011-06-01 [Rice]: Thanks [Chimes] xD

2011-06-01 [Akayume]: Oh hey guys! When will the next deadline be? o.o I might not be able to participate depending on that deadline.

2011-06-01 [SilverFire]: That deadline will depend on how long it takes us to judge the first round, and various other factors. Interviews will last up to a week, but won't all be run simultaneously, so there's some leeway there depending on when you're afi.

2011-06-01 [Akayume]: Otay. Because I will not have time to do this in July. X3

2011-06-01 [iippo]: Lord Josmar, you have pretty much free range with everything. And then you'll be judged based on how you used your free range. We call this approach "give them enough rope to hang themselves" :P

2011-06-01 [Evolution X]: And they'll strangle someone else with it... mwhahahahhaa

2011-06-01 [Lord Josmar]: Lolz. That is a very foreboding way of putting it.

2011-06-02 [Captain Rachel Black]: Woot! I've been wanting to do one of these!

2011-06-02 [Lord Josmar]: Stupid job hunt is getting in the way of my creativity.

Must. Work. On. Character!

2011-06-02 [Evolution X]: Stupid wedding getting in the way of my creativity... Must... Look... Pretty.

2011-06-02 [Akayume]: You're getting married? O.o

2011-06-02 [Evolution X]: My uncle is. Not me. Definitely not me.

2011-06-02 [Akayume]: Oh. Kay. X3

2011-06-02 [Ravendust]: So... I've got a character I'm pretty fond of, she's definitely unique and well developed... Can I use her for this?

2011-06-02 [Rice]: You can use any character you like, precious! :)

2011-06-02 [Rice]: Be my guests, so long as they fit the scenario.

2011-06-02 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm pretty sure they don't fit any scenario.

2011-06-02 [Rice]: There is your answer.

2011-06-02 [Alexi Ice]: LOL...

2011-06-02 [Evolution X]: Interesting... I think I will try and write mine soon.

2011-06-08 [Veltzeh]: I have this feeling that the deadline should be the 30th of June or 31st of July... :P

2011-06-08 [Rice]: Thank you. xD

2011-06-17 [Karithina]: I'm really excited for this now, it looks like it will be a fun way to clean out the cobwebs (since I "haven't had time" to role-play for 5 years now) :D

2011-06-19 [Veltzeh]: Is Krung Thep on Earth or somewhere else?

2011-06-19 [SilverFire]: Yes, it's on Earth.

2011-06-24 [twitchboy]: This sounds Great!<img:44166_1164145171.gif>

2011-07-04 [Roma]: I wasn't originally sold on this idea, but then I liked my character so much that I'm actually anticipating the interview. I'm not trying to be rude or pushy, I'm just wondering around when I can expect it. :3

I also need to let you know that I'll be gone for the first 2 weeks of August. I could probably find a way to post intermittently over that period, but that's yet to be seen. Will that be a problem?

2011-07-04 [iippo]: We can arrange around people's schedules :) So it's good to know.

2011-07-04 [Roma]: Woot :D

2011-07-04 [Jack Off Jill]: Im free when ever except mid augest.... Im schedualed for jump school

2011-07-14 [Evolution X]: So... we'll do stuff soon right? Deadline just came up.

2011-07-14 [SilverFire]: Of course, but the deadline's not quite up. It's the 14th today, and all official contests close at midnight, Elftown time the day of the deadline.

2011-07-14 [Evolution X]: Sorry, it's the 15th over here in britain ^_^" Got a little impatient

2011-07-14 [SilverFire]: ...No it's not. :P I'm in Britain too. It's the 14th, I promise.

2011-07-14 [Evolution X]: ...... STUPID COMPUTER! WRONG AGAIN!

2011-07-15 [kians mummy]: silvies right

2011-07-15 [Evolution X]: My computer was wrong... it is a day ahead all the time.

2011-07-15 [kians mummy]: Well why don't you change the date then. :)

2011-07-15 [Evolution X]: I can't. For some reason it refuses to change. Gonna try again though.

2011-07-15 [iippo]: I've had that happen, that the computer just didn't let me change the time or date settings, even though they were wrong. Can't remember if I ever managed to fix it though, so I am not useful here :3 

2011-07-15 [kians mummy]: Do it through the control way

2011-07-15 [Karithina]: Try changing the time in BIOS if you haven't already?

2011-07-15 [Evolution X]: I'm fine, honest

2011-07-15 [Roma]: I am experiencing computer difficulties and will until I return to my homestate on August 12. I am willing to discuss ways around this glaring scheduling problem if it indeed is one.

2011-07-28 [Jack Off Jill]: i do have one question about the interview, will it be through our character profile or will it take place in personal messages?

thank you for your time

2011-07-28 [SilverFire]: Character profiles.

2011-07-28 [Jack Off Jill]: ty for the response :)

2011-07-28 [Mortified Penguin]: You're quite welcome.
