The Selection: Prince Atlas (A Battle Group)

The Selection: Prince Atlas (A Battle Group)

Auditions for season 2 are [X] OPEN!!!! [ ] Closed
 
~~~
 
Season One- The Selection: Prince Valentine
 
Season Two- The Selection: Prince Atlas
 
~~~
 
Welcome to The Selection: Prince Atlas!
 
22 years ago, then-prince Valentine held his Selection and fell in love with Persephone Bia, a seven from Dominica. Now, Val and Seph are king and queen of Illea, and their eldest son, Prince Atlas, is about to host his own Selection.
 
But all is not well in Illea. After an attack on the royal family that cost Atlas both legs from the knee down, a grizzly war with Arvidia that lasted three years, and the sudden emergence of lower caste uprisings after the king and queen's attempt at a caste removal program, the state of things in Illea is looking rather grim. Ten years of prosperity after the war ended just a year ago, and now, things are looking much worse again. People are beginning to wonder if Valentine's brother, Alexander, should be king instead, and whether Prince Atlas or Prince Orion, Alexander's son, should be the one to inherit the thrown.
 
In the midst of all of this, Atlas must hold his Selection, something that he is not excited for in the least. How will things go for the prince who has grown distant from the world? Will he learn that it is possible to fall in love? Or will the Selection merely bring danger and mystery to the palace?
 
~~~
 
Hello, everyone, and welcome to The Selection: Prince Atlas! This is the second season of this battle group, and after a very successful (and fun!) first season with The Selection: Prince Valentine, I am so excited to embark on this journey again with members old and new. After learning a lot from running last season, I hope that this time around things will run even more smoothly and will be just as fun as last time.
 
For this group, you will be creating an OC, ages 16-20, who will be one of 35 girls competing for the heart of Prince Atlas. This season, things are pretty tense in Illea, and you’ll get to decide what your girl’s political opinions are. How does she feel about the current caste situation? Does she think the proposed program that feel through would have been a good idea, or was she against it? Does she have any caste prejudice? Even more importantly for the plot of this group, does she think Prince Atlas or Prince Orion should become the next king? Or does your girl honestly have no political opinions and just doesn’t care one way or another? All of these different opinions your girl may have will shape her journey in the Selection, so take some time coming up with a unique OC with views that you think will make for an interesting character arc.
 
The way this group is run will be pretty similar to last season. Throughout the group, there will be chances to earn hearts, which are basically in-story currency for the group. You can use these hearts to buy special story opportunities in certain rounds, and here is a link from last season that explains pretty well how hearts will work: http://www.polyvore.com/selection_prince_valentine_hearts/set?id=202432526
 
Like last season, there will be curveballs in certain contests and lots of ups and downs in the plot. And, also like last season, eliminations will not be solely based on points. Things such as activeness within the group, the sets and stories you make each round, and your girl’s relationship with – will come into play when deciding eliminations. However, at least for the early rounds, points will still count, so make sure to take bonus opportunities when they come along and complete all the requirements each round to get as many points as possible. There will also be point sweeps every once in a while, but often the leader(s) point-wise before the sweep will get some sort of reward. The only definite point sweep is right before the Elite (the top ten girls), but other point sweeps could happen at any time, so be prepared!
 
You do not need to have read The Selection series to be in this group, but I do highly suggest at least looking at The Selection wiki page in order to understand how things work. I try to make things as clear as possible, whether or not you have read the books, but having at least some basic knowledge of the series certainly doesn’t hurt.
 
Rules:
 
1. Please be nice to all of your fellow writers! It’s fine for characters to not get along in-story, but please respect and be kind to all members of this group.
2. Please keep this PG13 and under.
3. If you cannot enter a contest, let me know! I’ll happily let you make up the points later, or even work out a deadline extension if several members need more time. Since I will be busier this coming fall, I may even need to extend some contests just to fit with my own schedule, so never feel bad about asking for an extension. I won’t always be able to extend countless times, but it is always worth asking! If you miss a contest without letting me know, you may be at risk for elimination, so if you can’t get a set or story in on time, please make sure to message me.
4. Read all the background info for this group and look at the character profiles for all the members of the royal family. I know it’s a lot, but it will be very important this season. A lot of this group will be story heavy, and this background info will definitely come into play a lot.
5. Have fun!!!! :)

The Selection of You (An OC Battle Group)

The Selection of You (An OC Battle Group)

Auditions are: [] OPEN [X] Closed
 
---
 

Ever wondered what it would be like if YOU competed in the Selection??? Welcome to The Selection of You, where you get to create a character based off of yourself to compete in the Selection!
 
----
 
Moderators:
Dear (@trulydear)
Annie (@animationchic)
Hanna (@hz24601)
 
*Group description written by Dear*
 
---
 
This group is set in an alternate future of Illea, in which Prince Maxon and his Selection never existed. The situation in Illea is, on the surface, relatively peaceful. As far as the general public knows, the rebel attacks are far behind them, foreign relations are running smoothly, and the royal family is adored by their citizens. But is there more going on than meets the eye? In the wake of some disturbing rumors, Prince Roman’s Selection has just been announced. Is the Selection meant as a distraction? Or is it just bad timing? Whatever the case, 35 lucky Illean girls will get the chance to compete for the Prince’s hand, and perhaps discover what is really going on.
 
For this group, you get to base your character on YOU! How would you fair in the Selection? How will you feel about the Prince, or the possible political turmoil? How do you interact with the other girls? What will YOUR Selection experience be like? This group is the perfect chance to answer all those questions.
 
This group is inspired by other Selection groups, as well as Battle of You by @rosey-wolf-x. You will get to create an OC, age 16-20, based off of you, who will compete in Prince Roman’s Selection. There will be various contests, with points up for grabs and eliminations after some rounds. The contests will intensify once we get to the Elite, the last ten girls left. I will be taking some of the same mechanics from my other Selection battle group, The Selection: Prince Valentine, including the heart system, story advantages, stories from the prince’s point of view, bonus opportunities, and point sweeps. Hopefully, this will be a fun opportunity for all of us to learn more about each other and get to see how we would do in a Selection! :)
 
Rules:
 
1. Please be nice to everyone in this group! It's okay for characters to not always get along, but please be kind to all members of this group and treat everyone with respect.
2. Keep things PG-13 or under, please.
3. If you cannot enter a contest or will not be able to get a story in on time, let one of the mods know! We’ll happily let you make up the points. However, if you miss contests without letting us know, you may be at risk for elimination.
4. I want everyone to be able to make their character come from the Province they would like, especially those of you who live in North America and would like to make your character live by where you actually live. Therefore, there can be more than one girl per province! In story, the explanation for this will be that, in order to silence rumors that the Selection is rigged, the royal family is having all the names of the girls who entered put into a box and randomly selected. For your guys purposes, this just means that your girl can be from any Province, whether it is already taken or not.
 
UPDATES: Kent is now full! While we would love to accept more girls from Kent for the story sake, we are closing the province! Thanks for understanding! -Annie (1/13)
 
Waverly is now also full!- Dear (1/15)
 
Allens is now full as well- Hanna (1/18)
 
5. You may change up details about your characters and do not have to make them be you exactly! They should mainly be you in personality, hobbies, likes, dislikes, and any other details you would like to keep the same. You are not to use your real last name for your character, and you are not required to use your real first name either. You get to pick a faceclaim who you think looks like you, but you cannot use photos of yourself as your faceclaim.
6. Have fun!!!! If you have any questions, feel free to message one of the mods- me (@trulydear), Hanna (@hz24601), or Annie (@animationchic).

Dear's Selection Challenge

Dear's Selection Challenge

This is a group where you can submit sets made for my new challenge, Dear's Selection Challenge! In this challenge, you create the 35 OC's who would populate one Selection.
 
Sound like fun??? Check out the details on this challenge here: www.polyvore.com/dears_selection_challenge_read/set?id=206111261
 
I am currently doing this challenge myself, and will post all my sets for it here. Once someone finishes the challenge, just let me know and I will add you to the hall of fame on this group page! I'll start the hall of fame once I (or someone else) first finish the challenge.

OC Battle Mods Support Squad - A Community for Current and Aspiring OC Battle Group Mods!

OC Battle Mods Support Squad - A Community for Current and Aspiring OC Battle Group Mods!

The number of amazing and incredibly diverse OC battle groups that have sprung up on Polyvore over just the past year is mind-boggling, and creating and modding these groups can be an amazing experience :) BUT it can also be a bit of a challenge at times. It carries responsibilities and presents specific issues that don't come up much when modding even other types of battle groups.
 
That's where this group comes in!!! This is a place for current and aspiring mods of Polyvore OC battle groups to meet, share tips, bounce around ideas, ask for advice, advertise new projects, find co-mods for battle groups, etc.
 
This is also a place for fans and members of OC battle groups - especially if you're considering modding or co-modding one day or just want to keep track of all the amazing groups out there!
 
What sort of sets could be submitted to this, you might ask? Anything at all related to conceptualizing, setting up, and running OC battle groups is welcome here, as are general OC battle group sets. We'd love to see all your sets that share group concepts, modding advice, contest ideas, writing advice, icon and group template designs, worldbuilding tips, general encouragement for mods, etc.!!!
 
--------------------
 
Group Mods: Miranda (@decoder13) and Dear (@trulydear)
 
--------------------
 
GROUP RULES:
 
1. Always be polite and respectful to other group members, and to all fellow Polyvorians and their works/ideas/groups/etc. in general. Break this rule, and you will be removed immediately.
 
2. An "OC battle group", for the purposes of this group, is any group that:
- Is based on a story concept or group of concepts(original or based on an existing work)
- Requires members to create original characters
- Requires set and story creation focused on these OCs in order to win points in some scoring system
- Offers contests, mini-games, and/or other prompts that give members chances to win points
 
3. All types and genres of OC battle groups are celebrated here! This includes (but is by no means limited to) Selection-style battle groups, OC battle groups based on various existing works, original-concept OC battle groups, and OC battle group roleplays. We'd love for a wide variety of OC groups, group mods, and group members to be represented here :)
 
4. All sets must relate to OC battle groups and/or to their creation and management in some way. Any sets irrelevant to the topic of the group will be removed.
 
5. No copying the ideas of others. If you do draw inspiration from an idea shared here, be sure to give your muse credit for that inspiration!
 
6. HAVE FUN, and we hope this group grows into a an enjoyable and positive community for everyone involved!
 
--------------------
 
GROUP ASK SET:
 
Want some specific OC battle group modding advice? Post a question/comment to the group advice set linked below!

AWESOME OPEN OC BATTLE GROUPS:
 
- The Owp (http://www.polyvore.com/owp_battle_group_roleplay/group.show?id=203489) - Modded by @spacevinci - NEEDS 13 MORE MEMBERS FOR CONTESTS
 
Your OCs have been invited to the royal palace of the kingdom of Owp for a competition to choose the next princes and princesses of the Owp's sacred values: Love, Purity, and Beauty. But be wary - not all is as it seems. The kingdom and its values have become horribly corrupted over the years, and a Resistance centered on Violence, Pathways (Choice), and Secrets has arisen to fight them. Will your OC be a loyal citizen of the Owp? Or will they fight against its corrupt ideals with the resistance?

BATTLE GROUP ADOPTION INFO:
 
Sometimes, you start an OC battle group that is your pride and love and joy. Then life happens, your free time vanishes, and/or your inspiration evaporates. We at the Support Squad understand this moment from personal experience!
 
OC battle group mods who need to move on from their groups for one reason or another can contact Miranda @decoder13 or Dear @trulydear. We'll temporarily take over modding of the group and post a notice in the OC Battle Mod Support Squad "Adoption Society" that an OC battle group is in need of a good new mod who will preserve the spirit and the OC battle group nature of the group.
 
This will hopefully prevent some of those heartbreaking moments when a really cool OC battle group somehow ends up abandoned and is repurposed into a completely unrelated fashion group or something overnight!

OC BATTLE GROUP ADOPTION SOCIETY LISTINGS:
 
* The Selection Season 1: Villains Edition (http://www.polyvore.com/selection_season_villains_edition/group.show?id=200289) - Founded by @miss-belle-sutcliff
 
This Selection battle group sees 35 daughters of fictional villains competing to win the hand and the delightfully deranged heart of Billy "Knick-Knack" Napier, son of Harley Quinn and the Joker. Auditions are still fully open, and the storyline has not yet started. 15 more members are needed before contests can begin.
 
If you're interested in modding a Selection battle group like this, PM @decoder13.

* The 124th Annual Hunger Games (http://www.polyvore.com/124th_annual_hunger_games/group.show?id=204236) - Founded by @amyt1700
 
While this group began as a Hunger Games battle group, the current mod has expressed that anyone claiming this battle group can completely change the name, theme, and plot. The group currently has 10 members. If you've been wanting to start an original OC battle group for a while and would like to adopt a group that already has a few members to start out with, this might be perfect for you!
 
If you're interested in modding this group, PM @amyt1700

* Sailor Scout Academy (http://www.polyvore.com/sailor_scout_academy/group.show?id=204600) - Founded by @natasha-maree13
 
Current Group Premise (by @natasha-maree13): In the year 3045, the eight Sailor Scouts and Neo Queen Serenity are the world's only defense against hordes of creatures from outer space that are plaguing planet Earth...until young women across the world pop up with the same abilities as the scouts. To teach these girls how to use their powers, Luna and Artemis have gathered them all to one place: Sailor Scout Academy!
 
This group is a really cool OC battle group/OC battle group RP based on the Sailor Moon fandom. It's in need of 25 members to begin contests. You should probably create a new head girl if you plan to use the existing premise for the group.

Wilderness Reintegration Program (WRP) - An OC Battle Group

Wilderness Reintegration Program (WRP) - An OC Battle Group

*IMPORTANT NOTE: SEASON ONE IS ALREADY FULL!!! Only those who reserved on the reserve page have spots, so only those who reserved can fill out an audition. We apologize for any confusion!*
 
GROUP BACKGROUND:
 
It's 500 years into the future. 300 years ago, most plants on earth decided all humans should die. The cause is unclear, though suspiciously some countries preemptively denied specific bioweapon research caused it. Regardless, Earth's forests, waterways, etc. now hate humans.
 
Humans live on in scattered "safe zones", where vegetation is carefully controlled to ensure that only non-killer plants grow. The rest of the world is Wilderness, where most everything wants to kill you.
 
But some scientists in the region of loosely allied settlements that was once most of Canada, America, and Mexico dream of making all the world habitable again. They aren't planning another futile attempt to change the Wilderness, though.
 
They're planning to change humans.
 
Specifically, they want to modify humans with the DNA of well-adapted animals. Tests confirm that modified subjects aren't sensed as "human" by the Wilderness. Nature is not hostile to modified subjects. Modifications also gave subjects abilities similar to those of the animals whose DNA they'd been modified with. Successful tests developed into a full program: the Wilderness Reintegration Program (WRP).
 
-----
 
GROUP PREMISE:
 
It's 5 years after the first tests, and the WRP has begun a second round of testing. Anyone between the ages of 15 and 19 in North America who volunteers freely and who meets the age, physical, and mental requirements of the project could be selected. The 5 first-round program participants, now young adults, have been sent out in 2 groups to recruit 35 teens.
 
Chosen volunteers will be escorted back to the WRP base. There they will receive modifications that'll allow them to pass through the wilderness without everything attacking them and give them abilities linked to an animal with "valuable" skills. They'll then receive training and compete against fellow participants in order to identify the most valuable adaptations.
 
-----
 
SETUP:
 
Program applicants choose 1 of 5 teams. Each team embodies a key trait of some animals, is led by a first-round test subject, and has 7 spots. Each OC will be modified with the DNA of one of several animals that exemplify their team qualities. The animal they're modified with the DNA of is their "animal mod". We'll list the possible animal mods OCs in each team can have soon. Animal mods will be picked for the OCs by WRP leaders from the appropriate team lists post-Round 1.
 
Every contest, applicants will be asked for their opinion on 1 thing, be given 1 task to complete, and have 1 executive decision to react to. Story sections will be divided into "INPUT", "TASK", and "REACTION". Reaction prompts are based on decisions made by WRP leaders using previous Input answers.
 
Input will be considered, but OCs might not like every choice made for them. And the fact that nature itself doesn't consider them human anymore might give them pause. But it's all what they signed up for.
 
-----
 
RULES:
1. Be nice to everyone in the group! It's fine to have characters dislike other characters and have some drama going on, but keep it within the story and please be polite to your fellow writers.
2. Keep this PG-13 or lower, please! So no excessive graphic descriptions, cursing (mild cursing is okay, but mild please), or nudity.
3. One character per person, and no one can reuse the same faceclaim.
4. Even with the reserves, you must fill out the complete audition form and fulfill the set requirements to be a full member of the group. If you reserved but do not fill out an audition within two weeks (or at least a partial audition), your reserve will be released.
5. Try to enter all contests. If you cannot enter a contest for a given round, please message either Miranda or Dear (the mods) with your reason why and we will work something out.
6. Only submit sets to the group that are somehow related to the group. We reserve the right to remove sets from the group and/or contests if they are not related to the group.

As the group title suggests, this is a steampunk original character battle group. THIS IS NOT A ROLEPLAY - at least not primarily. But characters are encouraged to interact with each other in sets and stories, and all contests will include a writing component and will be judged on both set design and storytelling. RP sets pertaining to the group are definitely allowed, but RP is not required and is not the main focus/mechanic of the group.
 
The story of this group is set in an alternate 1893 full of incredible steampunk technology and aesthetics, but at a high cost to the earth and to society. Each group member will create sets for an original character involved in a rebellion against the corrupt government of the steampunk city of London-in-the-Air. More information on the world's story and setting are posted to this group in separate sets as needed, and a collection of all these sets will be made soon.
 
The character audition template can be found here: http://www.polyvore.com/battle_for_london-in-the-air_audition_template/template?id=1112268
 
A collection of all of the group's basic info sets is here: http://www.polyvore.com/battle_for_london-in-the-air_information_announcement/collection?id=4889455
 
A collection of the background info and requirements for all of this group's contests can be found here: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/collection?id=4988482
 
A collection of women's steampunk fashion inspiration I made for this group is here: http://www.polyvore.com/steampunk_style_for_battle_london-in-the/collection?id=4848062
 
A collection of men's steampunk fashion inspiration I made for this group is here:

Shout-outs are worth 10 points each for up to 3 shout-outs :)
 
Other ways to get some bonus points:
+10 points for an OC relationship set
+10 for a set on your OC's home
+10 for creating a playlist set for your OC
+30 for a character collection (see here http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/collection?id=5793417 for requirements)
 
Basic Group Rules:
 
1. Keep things PG-13 or lower, please! No graphic descriptions, excessive profanity, or nudity.
 
2. Respect fellow group members and their OCs at all times. It's perfectly fine for OCs to not get along, but please don't personally insult fellow members or their characters.
 
3. Tag all writers whose characters you mention in your character backgrounds or stories.
 
4. No OCs may be in any way related to London-in-the-Air's mayor or to NPCs on the city board. If you want to make your character a relative or illegitimate child of an evil scientist, a government assassin, a "captain of industry", or a rogue listed here (http://www.polyvore.com/london-in-the-air_facts_meet_antagonists_with/set?id=184416719), PM me for permission first. NO OC may be the legitimate child or adopted child of any villain listed in the set linked above. OCs CAN be pretty freely related to other members of the resistance, though :)
 
5. Sets not substantially related to the group or to group OCs and stories will be removed by the mods.
 
6. Try to participate in all group contests. I understand that things can get unexpectedly busy sometimes, and I won't kick you out for missing one contest here and there. If you miss more than 3 contests overall or more than 2 in a row without talking to me about it, though, I will remove you from the group.

The Terrible Manor Bed and Breakfast - An OC Battle Group

The Terrible Manor Bed and Breakfast - An OC Battle Group

Auditions are: [] Open [X] Closed
---------------------------------------
365 days. 42 ghosts. 1 hotel.
---------------------------------------
The Terrible Manor Bed and Breakfast is located in a sleepy little town in New York a ways off from New York City. In 1913, the rich and illustrious Finch family of New York opened the hotel in an attempt to make said sleepy little town a tourist attraction. The area had great appeal for travelers: lots of peace and quiet, a sweet little main street, a beautiful lake, and ghosts. Or at least, the locals told plenty of stories about the hauntings of the town, from the ghost who lived in the lake house to the light that would flicker on and off in the general store late at night. The Finches saw big dollar signs hovering over this town, so they purchased the abandoned mansion of a gothic writer who disappeared and left haunted rumors in his wake. This mansion was called the Terrible Manor, after a story the writer published. Thus, it became The Terrible Manor Bed and Breakfast. It was an instant hit, but weird things started to happen there. People would die in totally different parts of the country and then others would report seeing their ghost in the hotel. It was a bizarre phenomenon, but the Finches didn't care, so long as the hotel thrived and money flowed their way.

That's when the heiress to the Finch fortune, Elsie Finch, was supposedly murdered. Weeks later, people swore they saw her ghost in the hotel. Grieving and scared, the Finch family gave the hotel away, though they did keep official ownership of it. Over the years, other families rented the hotel from the Finches, but doom and death were the only things that ever came with it. By 1978, the hotel was completely abandoned, still owned by the Finches but no longer in use.

Ghosts kept showing up there after they died, confused and often unsure of where they were. Over the years, Fletcher Darrow, the gothic writer whose ghost still haunts the manor, and Elsie Finch, who had stayed at the hotel ever since her death, took plenty of ghosts in to live at the hotel. By 2000, 72 ghosts, including Elsie and Fletcher, were living there. They all just appeared there, and Elsie and Fletcher set about showing them the ropes of being undead. The ghosts became a sort of family, all living in an abandoned hotel and sorting out their afterlives. But by 2006, the ghosts were starting to grow apart. Many felt ready to move on, so they did, leaving only Elsie, Fletcher, and one or two others at the hotel. Ten years passed as the ghosts went separate ways, and much changed. None of them thought they would meet ever again. New ghosts stopped appearing at the hotel, and the glory days seemed to be over.

Then, in the year 2016, humans arrived at the hotel for the first time since the seventies. Their purpose? Demolish the hotel and put up a new luxury resort to replace the little town. Among these humans is Adam Finch Howard, a Finch descendant who is bent on getting rid of that hotel for some unknown reason. They plan on tearing it down in one year, but Elsie and Fletcher are convinced that this cannot happen. So they gather up as many of the ghosts who used to live in the hotel (you'd be surprised at how easy it is to contact other ghosts) as they can, begging them to help them save the hotel that was their home for so long.

Thus 38 of the 72 ghosts get together for the first time in ten years, prepared to save their home and, perhaps, solve a mystery or two along the way. They're going to discover secrets about the universe, the hotel, the Finches, Fletcher, and maybe even themselves, if they're lucky. But it's been ten years. Will they have all changed so much that they're attempts will prove useless? Or will they be able to turn back the clock and work together as the ghosts they used to be?
---------------------------------------
Each OC in this group will be one of the 38 ghosts working together to keep The Terrible Manor Bed and Breakfast and the surrounding town from being demolished. There are 9 teams based on when each ghost died, and each team has 4 spots, adding up to 36 spots. The mods’ two example characters bring the total up to the fateful 38 ghosts 
---------------------------------------
Group Audition Form: http://www.polyvore.com/terrible_manor_bed_breakfast_oc/template?id=1127759
---------------------------------------
Some Basic Rules:
1. Keep this at PG-13-ish horror movie levels. Backstories can be gruesome or gory in theory, but no graphic description, please. Bob's head might have been cut in half by a chainsaw, but just say "Bob's head was cut in half by a chainsaw." We don't need to know exactly how that looked, felt, sounded, etc. ;)
2. In general, tag all the people whose OCs appear in your sets, and never decide on another OC's feelings, abilities, deep dark secrets, ultimate fates, or other major character cornerstones for them. If you plan to do something major with another group member's OC, you must have the full permission and cooperation of that OC's creator first.
3. Be kind and respectful to all your fellow group members and their creations. OCs can hate each other and fight all they want, but showing hatred towards fellow group members or their characters will not be tolerated.
4. Let us know if you'll need to miss a contest. We understand that life gets insanely hectic at times and that a lot of you are balancing very full schedules and multiple Polyvore groups besides this one. It's no problem if you have to skip sometimes - we'll try to find a way for you to make up the points and might even extend the contests if enough people need more time - but please let us know first. We’re willing to work with you as long as you stay in touch with us and let us know that you still mean to participate in the group.
5. Characters will only be accepted if they follow ALL of the rules included in the audition template. We will comment on any auditions that don’t follow all the rules with some feedback to fix any issues, and feel free to message either mod at any time if you don’t understand a rule or if you’re not sure whether your OC follows the rules.
6. Each group member can create and write for ONE ghost OC who spent some time at the Terrible Manor as a ghost in the past and has come back now to help save the place. While characters' backstories can either imply or explicitly establish that one or even a few connected side-OC ghosts exist in the world, they could never have been official inhabitants of the manor, and they cannot be with the group of 42 trying to save the manor now. There will be an opportunity for fun reunions near the end of the group, though - keep an eye out for details on that if you're interested!
7. This is a non-elimination group by nature. However, we do reserve the right to eliminate your OC and remove you from the group IF:
* You break a major rule (ex.: bullying fellow group members, derailing another person’s plot or OC without permission from that person, EXTREME amounts of graphic content in a set and its description, etc.).
* You continue to break minor rules (ex. creating minor plot twists involving other characters’ OCs without their permission, consistently using light-R-rated amounts of gore and profanity in EVERY set and story you make, etc.) repeatedly and after multiple warnings.
*You miss contests frequently and without warning, or you miss more than two contests in a row without PM-ing @trulydear or @decoder13.
8. HAVE A HAUNTINGLY GOOD TIME, FOOLISH MORTALS! :)
---------------------------------------
TEAMS
 
Due to some confusion over acceptances, we ended up taking one spot off of team 1970s and adding one to 1980-1999. There will still be a winning team, but that will be calculated based on how many points it has PER MEMBER as opposed to how many it has overall. For example, if the 3-person team ends up with 732 points and a 4-person team ends up with 856 points, the 3-person team will win because it has a higher average of points per member. This should keep things fair in spite of the differences in team size :)

The Misfits of Skeydan: An OC Battle Group

The Misfits of Skeydan: An OC Battle Group

AUDITIONS ARE: {X} Open {} Closed
 
***Auditions will remain fully open until the end of the first contest!!!***

The Kingdom of Skeydan is a thriving little kingdom nestled between the Overhanging Highlands (a mountain range) and the Tolp Tributary. It’s a fairly small kingdom that is miles and miles away from any other kingdom. It thrives because of its fish industry, which is beneficial to several kingdoms past the mountains, and because of its prestige as one of the leading kingdoms working with magic as a daily amenity. Inside the mountain range of the Overhanging Highlands is a hidden alcove of magic, where many of the people of Skeydan learn how to work with magic and put it to use. Magic is an ever day thing in Skeydan, as it is used more and more for little things like making beds or even getting dressed quickly in the morning. It is about a seven days journey through the mountain pass of the Overhanging highlands when the easiest route is taken, and then about three days extra to reach the nearest kingdom. Many expeditions are sent back and forth to trade with other kingdoms and to sell their own wares, and there are a few groups of men and women who go on such expeditions. They go by foot, as riding horses through those mountains would be quite dangerous. In the past, people have indeed disappeared in the mountains during these expeditions. But in the past few months, disappearances have become more and more regular. The strangest part about it is that most of those who disappear are not the ones on the expeditions.
More and more, people have disappeared, most without any explanation, but some who were known to have visited the mountains right before disappearing. It would be easy enough to blame it on the magic of the alcove getting out of hand, but there’s one problem with that theory: the alcove has magically disappeared. With the constant disappearances and the sudden lack of any magic, the Queen of Skeydan has made an official decree to bar off the Overhanging Highlands from all the people of the kingdom. Guards watch it day and night, with no supplies or traded goods coming in or out. The people all know it is only a matter of time before they run out of resources, and without magic from the alcove, they will be in dire straits very soon unless the Overhanging Highlands is reopened. The Queen has sent a team out to the Overhanging Highlands to search, but they keep returning and going back out again, never finding anything. Even though the mountains are closed off, people keep disappearing.
Everyone in the kingdom is concerned, but thirty some of these people have decided that something needs to be done about the disappearances and lack of magic. These thirty people have decided to go off on their own and try to solve the mysteries. The only problem is, each of these thirty some people think they are the only one investigating the disappearances. When they all run into each other and discover that there are others investigating, they eventually agree to join forces and figure things out together. But these thirty some people happen to be the misfits of Skeydan, the people that no one would ever think of sending out on a mission as important as this. Not only do they want to save their kingdom, but they want to prove that they aren’t just a bunch of weirdos. It’s all about a band of misfits trying to save the day and be the heroes for once.
 
In this group, you get to create an OC who is one of the thirty some (unless I get more applicants, then there may be more) misfits. There will be different groups of misfits that you can create your OC under. The basic rules:
 
1. Be nice to everyone in the group!!! Characters are allowed to not get along, but as actual members we all need to be respectful to each other.
2. No graphic descriptions, profanity, or nudity. In other words, nothing more than PG-13, thank you!
3. Please message me if you have to miss a contest and we will work things out! If you miss contests frequently without saying anything I will have to eliminate your character.
4. If you have questions about the world this takes place in, just ask! I want to make sure everyone is on the same page at all times, so please direct all questions about the world to me before just implementing them. I promise to try to answer quickly! I plan to make a set of basic info on the fantasy world this takes place in, but that probably won’t be up for a little while, so feel free to ask questions if you have them in the meantime!
5. For the ladies, gentlemen, and royals category, please DO NOT make the Queen, any princesses or princes (as in, sons or daughters of the Queen), or anyone else from the main royal family. Duchesses, dukes, lords, ladies, cousins of the royal family, and anyone of nobility or the upper class is perfectly acceptable.
6. Points will be awarded for making sets as well as winning contests. Sets will be judged on story value as well as the actual look of the set.
7. I will be making the Queen, two princes, a few of the people in the official search team, and a few guards of the Overhanging Highlands, just to give everyone a basis to go off of. My example character will be a misfit in the group.
8. HAVE FUN! That’s probably the most important thing :)
