Contest Myths and Monsters

Post by Zonkes March 8th 2021, 9:01 pm

Character Creation Contest

MARCH 2021
END DATE: April 30th, 2021 @ 11:59PM EST

JUDGING END DATE: May 7th, 2021 @ 11:59PM EST
THEME: Myths and Monsters"

What are we looking for?

From the Sumerian tales of Gilgamesh to the urban legends of Bigfoot, from Plato and Aristotle to Tolkien and Lovecraft; mythology has been a part of human civilization since mankind could reason for itself. A recent expedition has located a thin spot in reality. A connection to the world our ancestors dreamt of. The world of legends.

For this contest, we want to see your mythologically inspired and/or monstrous character ideas. This theme is open to any and all ideas related to mythology and legendary monsters.

Where should I draw inspiration?

Look at world mythology. Wikipedia is a good place to start. Personally, I like Norse or Celtic mythology for my inspiration but every culture has had some sort of legendary creature.

What am I being graded on?


Your job is to create a character that, not only is unique, but has a unique personality, history, and set of powers and weaknesses to go with it.


The concept is generally diving more deeply into the history of the character as well as the powerset. How well do they work together? How do the powers work? How does the character function in SHRP's normal society?


This goes without saying that we're looking at the overall application and flow of the application. How pleasing it was to read, and how easy it was to understand. Was the origin story spot on? Did it make sense for the character? Are the powers perfect?

Who is grading me and how?

Grading Scale

With the three main components of Creativity, Concept, and Execution there will be a grading scale of 1-10. 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest.

Bonus Points

Bonus points will be handed out based on two categories: Grammar will be graded on a scale of 1-5. 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. Graphics will be graded on a scale of 1 - 3. 1 being you using the basic template, 2 you have an image to describe your character, and 3 being that you made a custom template.

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

AH, nobody putting dedication and daring to reply to this thread *Haha*
A month late but here I am to say I WILL get this done, and try my best with using a pre-existing theme to show I am capable of working with somewhat difficult measures.
