I might participate after all.

Which means I won't be a judge. I heard it as allowed to do both but I would likely go DARK SIDE and judge less fairly than usual if I did...

Nice, I will play quite a bit of H6 before I start with my faction.

I got a really cool idea, and it involves KIMONOS and HORROR! ;D

I would love to participate, but I still do not know if I manage...still, the usual question - we are not fixed on H6 as frame for the created faction, are we?!

That would be up to the judges. Personally I don't think they should be limited, but since I am not judging..not my call.  So....who was judging again?

Now who could that be?

OK, while we're at it: concerning, me, any lineup-format, setting, surrounding gameplay for the faction is fine =)
I will post my criterias and expectations for an ICTC entry, anyway, I think - if it's okay?

Honestly not sure I like the idea of any judge participating in the contest really.

I'm sure you all have supa-dupa willpower and everything but I'm sure anyone could ya know... sub-consciously compare a faction to his own when judging. Becomes a pretty jaded opinion ya know.

Personally I vote against judges participating as faction-makers.

I get your point

I am not really thinking I could manage to truly finish a faction this time, anyway, so I'm fine with just being judge, if you fear for objectivity.

Indeed, I would prefer judges not participate, but I know it might be hard to get people interested in judging something they have no interest in participating in.

then it's settled. If you want me, I  be judge, not participant.

@adrius: but don't you think that will make me softer in judgement

Drat, well then I'm out!

But I said that I was going to be a judge. Generally I'm objective, but if I must I will not create a faction if it settles the Adri-I's out there who don't trust me. Also, I'm sort of busy with the H7 idea, so that will keep me occupied.

I'm selfish like everyone else, but I also think that this contest deserves fair judging.

All sorts of conflicts and general ****ery can emerge otherwise. Don't judge me too hard; I do trust you, but as a matter of principle having judges participate in the actual contest is a big no no.

So, here are my Judging principles, hope they are not tooo strict...

Red Text is really necessary things. I will consider Factions which miss one of these INCOMPLETE, and they'll get 0 points...that sounds harsh but it are really only the basic things, without which you can't call it a faction...
Blue Text is things which I find important and think they definitely should be in, but I will still definitely judge your faction and they won't get zero point if some of these are missing. Yet it will be hard to reach good scores if more than few of them are not in...
Green Text are things which are not vital, so you can reach top scores without htem, but will give you bonus points, and reaching top scores without these may be quite difficult - the rest would have to be done good and rather detailed.

Generally, of course not only what is in gives the points, but also quality. Generally, details, creativity, balance, ambience (if the aspects and the faction on it's whole 'feel right' within their setting, if they fit together, etc.)
In black text I'll give you information on what I find most important.

General Info:
-Faction Name
-Faction Description: At least a short Description, what this faction is about.
-Faction Symbol&Colour
-Main Race, if one exists
-Faction Motto: 1-2 Sentences
-Main Values: which are the main values of the faction? (note that, of course, 'evil' values like greed, hate, etc. are also allowed)
-Faction Strategy: 1-3 sentences for a short description how the faction works ingame

-Country, Capitol

For the General infos, the Ambience is most important. Creativity would also be nice.

Units:
-Unit Lineup: All units of the faction, including upgrades, listed with name and Tier
-Unit descriptions: To know what the units are about
-Unit Appearances: To know how the units look, can be part of Descriptions. Can be in words, or with pics, or however you wish, as long as one gets the idea.
-Unit Strengths/Weaknesses: In what is the unit good and bad. Not necessary if you give stats.
-Unit Abilities: Which abilities shall the unit have. If there are abilities you invented, please describe/explain them.

-Unit stats: Not necessary with values, but at least if each stat is high, low of average.
-Unit background: Setting/Background infos about the units, can be part of the description


for units, balance is highly important, Creativity follows closely. Ambience and Details would be great as well

Heroes:
-Hero Class: The name of the corresponding hero class(es), and, if you make such distinction, wether they are might or magic oriented (or which is which)
-Racial: IF you have a racial, name it and describe it's effect.

-Hero Class Details: Description & Stats
-Racial Details: Describe effect of racials in detail, on each level, add subskills, if your system allows it, considerrare situations which may lead to abuse or make it useless

-Hero Class Looks
-Hero class intense details: Skill tree
-Scenario Heroes (with Specials, if you take specials in, and Bio at least)


Creativity is most important here, Ambience and balance follow.

Town:
-Town Name^^
-Town looks: The general looks of the townDescribed, Picture, whatever...
-Dwellings: The unit dwellings, only names necessary
-Special Buildings: The special buildings of the town, which are not dwellings

-Building Tree: A Graphic or List or whatever to show all buildings th etown can build and which needs what.
-Building looks: Can be pic, description, etc. again


Ambience is most important in the town...

Setting:
-World: In which World is your faction situated - Ashan (H5&6), Axeoth (H4), the H1-3 world of Enroth, Erathia, etc. (does it have a name, btw? O.o) or a completely different world, maybe invented by you?
-Faction Background: A closer, only-setting look on the faction than in the description. Can be very different.
-History: A Timeline of important events of the faction, with at least short descriptions
-Society: The hierarchy, who rules, are there castes or classes, how is the relation of different races in the faction, etc.


Here, Details, Ambience and Creativity must play together.

Campaign:
-Campaign Name & Short Overview
-Campaign Scenario Descriptions
-Campaign Heroes


This is only a bonus section, I do not think making a Campaign is necessary, but if the Campaign's good, it can give you points, definitely. Ambience is what I want here, and creativity, if possible. (however, I'd prefer a fitting, classical campaign over a very creative one, that seems not a good fit for the faction)

Others:
-Faction Relations
-Faction Music (Self-made or something you find as fitting, I don't care)

Here, it depends on the point. Music and Relations should be mainly in a good ambience.

...hope I  didn't forget anything. If so, I'll add it...
