(This is a thread from Mizahar's fantasy role playing forums. Why don't you register today? This message is not shown when you are logged in. Come roleplay with us, it's fun!)

IC News travels slowly in Mizahar. Fortunately there is a constant stream of news from around campfires, from caravan to caravan and from merchants to merchants. Within this forum lies the best of the best of this talk. Also, within this forum, OOC news from the staff and players can be found. This forum requires all posts to be 'approved' by a Founder before they are displayed. So if you post within, be patient. Your post did display - it simply will not show to everyone until approved as actual 'news'. Please keep all Introductions, Status Updates, and various other discussions in their appropriate forums and leave this area for game news!

Hi Folks!

It was requested that I run another contest. People wanted to do solos, but also it was requested that moderated threads and group threads count too. So from today... until Monday 4/18 at 9 pm we are going to hold a challenge involving solos, moderated threads, and group threads. Combos count. Sign up below. Detail your character development.

No standard theme... just character development. Have something happen to your PC... your PC do something... anything to develop your PC.


One prize per every 2.5K thread. Posts can be combined to make the 2.5K count.

The prize list will be the same prize list from last week's challenge. This is sort of a redemption three days for those who missed the week long one last week... and when this challenge is done, both threads will get the same prize list. :) You all have fun!

Goss

Fri/Sat/Sun/Monday Contest - 4/15-4/18

Postby Cleon on April 16th, 2022, 2:30 pm

For my contribution to the challenge, Cleon is going to learn how to be a little more patient in his search for answers about the curse. He's also going to have to get rather creative with his solutions based on what information shakes out, which will be explored in a following thread for the challenge if I have the time.


Thread Tracker:

Fits and Starts WC - 616 (Cleon tries shouldering a bit of responsibility getting him and his sister settled in while trying to figure out why they keep forgetting the Inn Keeper)

Jungle Parkour - WC 1,398 Cleon learns a finer appreciation for the jungle, traversing it and his gnosis mark.

What was lost - WC 816 Cleon reflects over the events of the last tenday, and strives to do better.

Just a wager - 799

Postby Adal Karelyn on April 16th, 2022, 2:35 pm

Adal's going to make up for her absence last challenge with a two part solo thread.

In the first part of this thread, Adal discovers that she rather likes singing and starts using the learning experience as a way to cope with the loss of her mother.

Rainy day blues - WC 2,517

In the second part of this thread, Adal uses her singing to explore other frustrations and explore her newfound independence.

Rainy day blues (Part 2) - WC 2,618

Additionally, if I have the time, I plan on Adal expanding her horizons somewhat with classes at the dusk tower where her perceptions of reality will experience a dramatic shift from what she has ordinarily experienced thus far. As this would entail three separate threads, its a hard if, but I'm putting it here so I have something else to strive for.

Signing Shiress up...again...with determination.

This challenge will see Shiress barely holding onto the tattered strings of what's left of her mental and physical state, a spontaneous decision, and determination to help herself and others if only to protect her son's mother and Ian's future.

5th Tenday - 1,773
Two Minds, One Task - 935
May I Have a Word - 2,144

Postby Moritz Craven on April 16th, 2022, 9:30 pm

Entering with Moritz, I think he's gonna go with the deep introspection, maybe some meditation to think on himself.

At the end of the day he kind of identifies himself by his truthfulness, while also kind of being stubbornly unchanging, so it kind of makes him questions some things since he's forced to lie, while stubbornly refusing to acknowledge even to himself that he's bothered by it.

I'm thinking weird dreams and meditation.

Updated to count word count 4/15-4/18

Who Goes There?- 850

Ghosts, Goats, and Guys- 617+734= 1,351

A Knotted Dream- 537+594+534+495+478=2,638

The 5th Tenday of Spring, A shot in the dark- 1,094


Total Word count- 5,933

Signing up Antelokes.

Thread: Ancillary Risk -- 2674 words

Post: Two Minds, One Task -- 823 words

Post: The 5th Tenday of Spring... -- 687 words

Total: 4184 words

I'll try to get through one thread. More than that is unlikely for now I'm afraid. I want Antelokes to define and commit to himself what his role is in the world, and he'll take some steps to come to terms with it. In the process he'll probably also sort through some theology/theodicy as well.

Good luck to all!

Hi all.

By the time I hit post with this, the contest for this weekend will be over. I'll post prizes for both weekends in this thread and the other thread sometime in the next few days. It won't take me long to get them up.

I just wanted to say I changed my mind about prizes in this thread. I was just going to do the same as the other thread and award prizes based on 1 prize per every 2.5k thread. But I saw so many people doing replies, so many efforts at coordination, and so much planning for the future I'm going to change the qualifications on this one.

Feel free to scream at me if you think it's unfair.

I'm going to let you take the next day or so and post up any word count you wrote for anything (IC, OOC, Scrap, Replies in Odd Threads, ETC) in this thread. Did you reply to someone? Count it. List where you replied and what solos you wrote, or any planning you did.

So long as you posted between 4/15 and 4/18 it counts.

I will award you one fun thing to find in a thread per every 1k words. Yes, you heard me write. 1 prize for every 1k words. These prizes are a bit smaller than the other prizes in the other thread, but you can trade in two from this prize group for one from the last weekend prize group if you want.

This is my ditch effort in rewarding folks who worked hard over a holiday weekend with a little extra. I think you'll like the rewards. Feel free to update your sign-up posts here and feel free to add a sign up post below if you forgot to sign up at all.

I'll post the prizes soon.
