Rating
Language 2: Swearing is generally permitted. However, the language cannot be used to severely abuse.
Sexual Content 2: Sexual content is permitted. References and writing about genitalia and sex acts are permitted, but explicit detail is not. Fade to black, or use the dotdotdot rule. (Let's keep it PG-13.)
Violence 2: Graphic violence is permitted. Explicit description or in-game narration violence is allowed.

Despite these ratings, keep in mind that there is a limit, and you should not cross it just to garner attention. Also, resorting to curse words is also like adding senseless fluff to your posts.

Contest Cosmic Creations

Post by Zonkes September 14th 2022, 8:53 pm




Cosmic Creations




September - November 2022
END DATE: October 31th, 2022 @ Midnight CST

JUDGING END DATE: November 5st 2022 @ Midnight CST
THEME: Cosmic Creations"







What are we looking for?



“Once more the universe hangs in the balance, once more the Council of Creation calls upon all of its members. Once more… the Black Beast threatens existence.”

Oh hello there, it’s me, Zonkles the Friendly Clown. You probably missed me last month because someone else got impatient with me waiting to start the contest. WELL TOO BAD, TEA! THAT WAS A ONE TIME THING, NEVER AGAIN!

Anyway, you’ve probably clicked on this thread for one of three reasons. To read the latest ramblings of everyone’s favorite madman, to sign up for the contest at the bottom (HA!), or for me to explain the theme of this month's contest. Frankly, I’m insulted that the vast majority of you don’t come here for me but let’s get started.

This month's contest asks you to reach beyond earth once again, only this time I’m not here to request that you make a bunch of silly aliens or dip into the arcane… this time we’re reaching beyond even those… I want you to channel Jack Kirby, ladies and gentleman.

The cosmic creations contest is all about making players on a scale of universal proportions. When you think this contest, I want you to place your thoughts with Darkseid, Galactus, The Spectre, the Silver Surfer… Hell, Dormammu works if you want something not so space themed.

I want to see universal constants, I want to see concepts personified, I want to see you give birth to the SHRP Universe in person form. Give me power.

Where should I draw inspiration?



Jack Kirby is where I’d look mainly. The man had his problems, but if you want to see how to write cosmic stuff for a comic book, Kirby’s the man. Cosmic horror like Lovecraft would be great, though let’s avoid any issues that he had.

Other than that, draw from wherever you like. Sandman is a good source of inspiration for instance.






What am I being graded on?



Creativity


Your job is to create an advancement and story that makes sense both in terms of your character and in universe while still being unique to your character.



Concept

The concept here is how good the idea for your advancement is, and how well it fits with your character in the first place.


Execution

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 story really well written? 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 the basic template, and a 3 being a fully customized character sheet.
