I would also like to participate.

EDIT:
"The second restriction is a limit in the number of pictures. You may only enter one picture per creature, and five additional pictures for the overall rest of the faction."

Can we merge 2-3 pictures in 1 in order to be able to stay within the given limit?

I understood that was allowed. You just cannot judge your own submission(s). As I like this contest and Jiriki was in dire need of judges I decided to sign-up for the task.

Seriously, what have I written that original post for as mentioned there:

Participants can be judges as well, but then they do, of course, not judge their own faction(s).

I am not participating in this round, but if I was I would have beef with that, no disrespect to Steyn's integrity ofc.

I do understand. But it is difficult to find judges. If people are interested in the contest they most likely also want to participate. If they are then not allowed to judge anymore it will be even harder to find judges. Maybe it would be a solution to let all participants judge? Although that might deter potential contestants...

PS: You are of course always welcome to judge Or you could become judge coordinator, so you can make sure I play by the rules

@Tsar: I do understand, but it is as Steyn said. But there is a judging coordinator and would it become obvious thatsomeone of the judging participants gave lower notes to buff themself, that would definitely have consequences!

First: THis thread was originally not meant for q&a...nevertheless, I will answer

and the answer is...I actually did think about that and I am quite unsure, but I THINK like this:
It depoends on what you mean by merge...if you just mean putting them next to each other, but it being only one file, I would say no, because it would take the point of the restriction, to have the faction be presented less by pictures and more by your description, away.
You could of course make one single new picture of two others, if you are capable to, but it would have to be recognizable as it than.
...also I am personally unsure wether to count diagrams and similar in, because their main purpose is to clarify a structural thing about the faction, not to present its looks.

May I enter the fray? Giving there's some time yet. My proposal is to be named: The Foundations. I'll put some effort in doing my townscreen.

Hm, another question. We have a limit of 1 post. How many characters are used to completely fill 1 post around here? I'm almost finishing writing my proposition and now that I think of this rule, I'm dreading that I'll have to simply cut things off.

Does anyone know? I'll give a free panda hug to whomever answer this. Don't lose this opportunity!

What is ICTC? - Information for those who never heard of it
ICTC stands for "International Create a Town Contest". As the name suggests, it's a contest in which each participant creates a HoMM-faction of their liking. 'Creating' in these case does not mean modding a previous game, but describing and presenting an idea you have for a faction you think would be great.
Also - that will be mentioned below again, but here it may be helpfull as well - each participant opens an own thread in which they present their faction.


Am I restricted to a specific verison of HoMM?
No. You can use the system of any HoMM version, or you can alter it, or you can even use a new system. It should be recognizable as HoMM, though.

Am I restricted to which faction I should do?
No, you can do any faction you like, be it a remake of a well-known faction or an entirely new one.

Am I restricted to Ashan?
No. You are not restricted to any setting.




That shall cover your questions.
