Faction Recreating Contest?

Anyone wanna do a faction recreation contest? I remember LizardWarrior hosted one 2 or so years ago that I had a lot of fun with but it kinda just died. The rules would be as follows:

Create a lineup following any format, at least 2 Hero classes, 2-3 unique buildings + a grail building, and backstory (taking place in the NWC universe, Ashan, or a universe of your own) for whichever faction we're doing.

You will have 1 week to submit your proposal, after which there will be a 3-day voting period during which anyone, contestant or not, can give each submission a 1-10 score on creativity, but you have to score ALL the submissions(except your own if you made one) or else your vote is ignored. This is because the final winner will be determined by the average scores given. After voting is done, everyone will have a week to submit their proposal for the next faction, and so on. You can jump in at any time or sit any contest out if you want, each will be judged separately. Winners are awarded a feeling of satisfaction and my eternal love

Here's the order, I used a randomizer. We can skip around though depending on what people want to do. The create-your-owns, especially, can be more of a bonus round if by some miracle we keep this going for more than 13 weeks lol.

1. Necropolis *
2. Castle/Haven *
3. Inferno *
4. Rampart/Sylvan **
5. Dungeon
6. Stronghold
7. Tower/Academy
8. Sanctuary
9. Dwarf Fortress
10. Conflux
11. Swamp Fortress
12. Forge/Factory
13. Cove
14. Create-Your-Own (Good)
15. Create-Your-Own (Neutral)
16. Create-Your-Own (Evil)

*Finished
**Ongoing

Im in, but I suggest it not to make it a contest. Just a relaxing writing exposition so that people wont feel pressured about deadlines.

I also suggest it to make it very complex, like character/hero sheet, creature sheet. A bit more detailed over all.

EDIT: and to not make a chaos in this thread, make a thread for each faction so that anybody posts whenever they have time.

So what we flood the forum? That's what it is for. And anyway, no posts have been made since 2018 (not counting bots).

I would really love to participate. I am not sure I can in the first round, though, if the deadline would be next week.

And DJ, though I understand your concern, my experience from way back (hosted a conteest or 10, iirc ) tells me that more "relaxing" does not keep such a thing alive.
I mean, everybody knows it is a friendly contest anyway. The deadlines are there to make sure that it keeps going. If you take them out, it is not much else than anyone who wants giving the factions they want when they want, as in the altar.

For the same reason of keeping it alive and many people in, I advise against this. In my experience, the more you expected, the less people join and actually finish factions.

And in past it also was no problem to have 1 contest in 1 thread, ICTC except.

The deadline will probably be 1 week from whenever we start. I'd like 1 or 2 more people at least before we do though as 3 people is too small to have a proper competition IMO.

I think it would be fine if you want to include extra details besides the things I laid out, but they shouldn't be required.

Well, ok, put me in, but that Forge/Factory thing offenses me by a bit tho.

lol, the idea of doing it or using them interchangeably? I know they're not really the same thing but for the purposes of this contest where you're supposed to put your own spin on the faction they are. I mean, Factory is basically HotA Crew's own spin on Forge. Personally I prefer the real Forge, admittedly.

Anyway, now that we've got 4 people I'm just waiting on a response from 2 others I invited. After they respond I think we're ready to start!

I have a question regarding the requirements.

it says 1-3 unique buildings. SO I expect more are not wanted?! And if that is so, what about variants of standard buildings and about defense structures? And waht about buildings that are new, but, in my consideration, would be in each faction?

Honestly, 1-3 is really just a guideline more than anything. You can do more if you want.

Really, the requirements are just the bare minimum. You can innovate as much as you want, I just didn't want to make the requirements too much for people who don't have the time/attention span.

If you have ideas for buildings that would be included in every faction, just label them as such and I, at least, will account for them when scoring any of your builds even if you don't explicitly include them in everyone.

Necro thread is up btw. Take your time, the one week limit doesn't start until the first person posts.

So, let's rearrange the faction order?

The biggest reason we moved the contest is that nobody really looks here, so I'll add the order to the next thread.

Okay, I'll put the new order here too, but I've made it a point to include the rules in each thread and will continue to do so.
