MERRY STORYTIME
- a contest hosted by your favorite badmin

DEADLINE: 2. January 2018 22:00 GMT+0



Intro:
Welcome my friends, and Tybalt. I wish you sincere and happy holidays already, may all your wishes be fulfilled. The day may come when 2017 comes to an end, BUT its not this day. This day we write!
(click to show/hide)
And to celebrate Christmas, new year AND the incredible revival of the mod, making it literally even more popular than native or any other mod, I deliver you the Merry Story time Christmas contest! hurray!




Task, Rules and Rewards!

So, for those who cba to read everything, here is what the theme of the contest actually is:
Basically, write a story and add pictures of your character. It can be serious, funny, disturbing, trollish, historically correct, whatever you like! I need you to describe me an interesting character I can somehow introduce in my book (see below). It might not appear there 1:1 as you describe it here, but I am very willed to let me inspire by some of your awesome creativeness! The more serious and book-fitting you make it, the higher are your chances to win huge rewards. If you convince me, I will reward you. If I think you had a great idea and put in effort, I will reward you too, even if I will not use your character in my book. The rewards will be given by 2 instances:

1) I choose winners myself. People who convince me, who take this serious and who put in passion and creativity will be rewarded directly by me and will get my personal items.
2) I put everyone participating into a poll and the community can vote their favorites.

This means, you can win twice! Rewards are listed below!

Also a reminder: Think about writing a serious biography, don't forget you could use it twice, once here for the contest and a second time for the c-rpg.net biography function!

level 1 (no artistic skills): cRPG characters!:
Write a story. I want you to introduce a character of your imaginations and describe it in any way you like. For those who are not skilled enough, choose your cRPG character and take some good screen shots of him in the outfits and the atmosphere you find most fitting for him. Post them here, and write a biography like story about him. You can write about his traits, or write it like a short story, like a chapter of a book with him as a protagonist.
level 2 (basic skills): Draw what you like! If you think you're able to draw your perfect character from your imagination, give it a try! A pencil sketch is fine, but don't forget to add a few lines about your characters personalities and traits as well!
level 3 (hard mod - true): Wallpaper time. Do a real artwork of the character you like, convince the community with your superior art skills and you shall be rewarded by a LOOM-SPLOTION


rule of thumb: the more visual art you provide, the merrier you have to write. A giant picture full of details, atmosphere and color needs no more words.

Also, don't spam, don't chat. Please post only contest relevant stuff, appreciation, questions etc is allowed, but please avoid any kind of spam. (I will delete spam)


I am confused, how is a contribution supposed to look like?

Phoenix, the Spin King. From humble beginnings, to an extravaggant lifestyle.
Lowly peasant. To soldier. To Praefectus of The Lost Legion. To Lord of New Habba. Always the Spin King.

From the rich town of Dhirim in the Kingdom of Swadia, born within a lowly family of peasants. His childhood was dull, but from dull beginnings comes one of the greatest Calradia has ever seen. Dhirim, being located within the center of nearly all of Calradia, was a constant target for war. Villages in the surrounding area were looted often. From Phoenix's lowly birth through the rabble, his destiny was to run his fathers fruit stand just like the many before him. But war forced him to choose otherwise. Through his fathers business, he met many different folk, though he often found himself conversing with mercenaries the most. With the stories of valor he heard from such people, he took up the same occupation as soon as he was of age to do so. Sixteen years old, Phoenix took up arms as a mercenary. Donning the cheapest set of armor he could fund, with a longsword, he set out to join any and all who would pay for his services as a novice in swordfighting.

When not under contract for mercenary work, Phoenix joined what tournaments he could journey to without going too far. He spent nearly a year travelling to different areas of Calradia. He went to distant lands, and met people from the factions his own native nation had warred with in the past, and fought them aswell. Though even after meeting all the others he had found during his time as a soldier for hire. One group had caught his eye.

The Lost Legion. Although currently small in numbers, after Phoenix had joined the clan quickly grew to be a powerful force. With the help of others in this newfound group, he showed promise in combat. So much so that he adopted a style he hadn't seen others using at the time. Jumping and spinning.

To others, he looked like a fool. Until it started working. Countless battles had been won by Phoenix, chopping his way through the enemies (and nearby allies) that dared show themselves to the might of the Lost Legion. It was at this point that 'LL' was one of the most powerful forces of the time. The sundering of the native factions had destabilized the entire region, but allowed many other factions to take up the previously owned land. This practice was known as 'Strategus'. When they had grouped up for battles should the time allow for such, they cleaved their way through the lands of Calradia. Establishing a large enough empire to rival the so called 'Romans' from another place in the world beyond the ocean at their peak.

Through conquering so much land, killing many enemies of his faction, and spinning, Phoenix came upon a small fortune of gold for his own personal use. He used nearly all of his gold even while at the rank of 'Praefectus' with which he trained the generals personal guard, to order a set of ornamental plate to be crafted for himself. Some questioned his investments. Some questioned his sanity. But he only continued to spin on the haters.

Though this lavish lifestyle could not last forever. The Lost Legion eventually fell from glory after everyone lost the taste for battle, be it the wealth everyone in the clan had amassed, or age, or becoming wounded. Though it seemed as all of Calradia had done the same. Population dissapeared out of thin air, leaving mere remnants of a world that once was as though an apocalypse had just happened. For a time, Phoenix dissapeared aswell. But once you dip your Bec de Corbin into the cauldron of blood and gold, you can only last so long without getting withdrawl from the fields of battle. Lost Legion was now merely a dim light flickering in the night, compared to the spotlight aimed towards the sky that it was in the history books. But that didn't stop Phoenix from bringing honor to the name of the great kingdom of days long passed. Although mostly lone in his present endeavors, some still say he fights to this day, in his gold and black plate, still representing LL, with a vicious throwing lance and ruthless Bec de Corbin at his back.


From the Book of Spin.
Psalm 70
His spin will lay hold on all your enemies;
   his spin will seize your foes.
When he appears for battle,
   he will burn them up as in a blazing furnace.
The Spin King will swallow them up in his wrath,
   and his fire will consume them.
He will destroy their descendants from Calradia,
   their posterity from mankind.
Though they plot evil against you
   and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
He will make them turn their backs
   when he jumps at them and begins to spin.
Be exalted in your strength, Spin King;
   we will sing and praise your might.

It's not always about winning. It's about spinning.
