The Round 1 delay + PASSPORTSDue to difficulties Round 1 hasn't come as quickly as planned, but I assure you that it is on it's way. We plan to have it released during this week or this weekend. Hang tight! Once it's released, you'll understand why it's taken so long. We're sorry we have to be so cryptic!The Round 1 delay + PASSPORTS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the meantime, we'd like it if you refrained from asking about Round 1, or when it'll be released, or just generally making remarks for us to hurry up. We understand that you are excited for this, and as are we!, but these comments really don't help at all. It puts more pressure of the members that are working on R1 things, and we want them to do a good job and not be rushed!
To pass the time we're going to be releasing the SAROS PASSPORT for members to fill out (both contestants and NPCs). This officially allows characters into other regions, as well as other features that will become clear farther into the tournament.
Thanks for your patience, everyone! It'll be here soon. c:
Announcement from Epicent City: The Tournament!Hello, and welcome to the Saros region! My name is Professor Ivory, but most people respectfully refer to me as the Pokemon Professor. Now I’m sure you won’t need me to explain the world of Pokemon, as you’ve likely known it for most of your life! So instead, allow me to introduce you to the land I and my friends call home.Announcement from Epicent City: The Tournament!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The region of Saros divides into six distinct provinces noted by their strongly varying climates. The pokemon vary between all 6 regions, seeming to culminate by their various types. And as the pokemon vary, so do the people who live alongside them! Within the regions, there are 6 guilds which are the center of power and influence among the people of each region! The 6 trainers who lead them have known each other since youth, and the guilds still carry such bonds.
In the center of the land is a bustling urban center known as Epicent City! It is here where I conduct my studies, on the 17 types of pokemon and how they adapt and interact with each

Well, not really, but that's what is happening! WE HAVE GIVEN YOU AN ADDITIONAL WEEK AND A DAY TO COMPLETE YOUR ROUND ONE ENTRY. That makes the new deadline September 12th.
This will be the only extension to Round One. Do NOT count on any more.
As well, there are a couple things that need to be done when your entries are completed. We're getting in some finished entries now. Yes, you must submit your entire entry to the group. This is in case of any issues, we can resort to finding your entry within the gallery.
But, please make sure your entries have NEXT and PREVIOUS links. Some way of navigation of your entries. Also, please link your app somewhere in the artist descriptions.

So please for the love of god stop submitting them to the ancestors folder, they are being denied there for a reason. PLEASE SUBMIT THEM TO THE MISC FOLDER UNTIL I CAN CREATE ONE JUST FOR THIS GROUP OF TROLLS.
if you need proof here, look at this chat:
AG: Yes. Though not quite how you are picturing.
AG: She had an ancestor whom she was aware of, and technically that is who I am.
AG: That is to say, she is who I would have 8ecome on your world, had I arrived in her place. Alas, I did not.
AG: She was a figure in your history who preceded you 8y thousands of solar sweeps.
AG: Whereas I preceded your entire civilization 8y 8illions.
These two lovely ladies came BEFORE the ancestors, and are indeed related to our original 12, but in a much more distant way.

ROUND ONE OF SIXFOLD LEAGUE NOW COMMENCES
This round will be treated like a qualifier. We want you to show us what you can do, but don't go absolutely all out right at the start! A certain number of contestants (depending on how many participate in this round) will move on to Round Two.
In this round, your contestants will be having a ONE ON ONE BATTLE WITH YOUR FACTION'S ASSISTANT. You must show your character winning for your character to advance. Though the definition of "winning" is up to you! As long as it's clear (a draw would also be considered a victory). No switching Pokemon mid battle. You must pick one Pokemon and stick to it throughout the whole battle*.
*Note on the turn-based style fighting: it is like the games, but not exactly. Basically it just means taking turns, but you are more than welcome to mix it up as well. We won't penalize you for it.

Some Thoughts.Tournament ObservationsSome Thoughts.7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ive been in art tournaments of the DeviantART sort for a while, observing, competing and administrating ever since July 07. Doesnt sound like much, but I am assured by my friends that this makes me at the very least a Veteran in the Tournament scene. So! With that in mind, Id like to take this opportunity to bitch and whine about problems with tournaments Ive seen, and to praise to the high heavens innovation and whatnot in the various tournies that pop up from time to time. This is mainly to do with Tournament establishment and administration; have a gander if you like.
This was streamlined from Deathdog3000s list. Credit to her! And to my plethora of helpers at RoninRubbish and PCBCChat. Contribute and comment, please!
Be as Fair as Possible.
This should be self-evident. Obviously, your judges in particular should be totally free from bias, and preferably people known in the tournament s

Event 1: The Sixfold BallGood day. Lady Lyra Nightingale of Lochesh speaking. I am here to announce the annual event: the Sixfold Ball. The ball takes place before the tournament begins so the people new to the region of Saros or the faction you have joined may converse with one another as well as the leaders and assistants of the factions. Perhaps you may form lasting bonds: whether friendly or not.Event 1: The Sixfold Ball3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Ball starts at 7 o'clock so don't be late. It will be held in the grand ballroom in my Manor which has plenty of space for you and at least one of your Pokemon, if you so choose. Just be sure to clean up after it or you might just get a surprise visit from a Gengar or two. Feel free to wander the garden outside the ballroom as well.
Due to the nature of the surrounding area, all Ball attendees will stay at the Manor overnight and leave in the morning. Do not leave the Manor grounds after 11 o'clock or you may not ever come back.
And remember: formal attire only. Dates are not required but are recommended.

My mad vampire character. Setsuka is a bit more mature, but can get quite childish at times. She's pretty spoiled too and hates it if things don't go her way. Setsuka loves axes and doesn't hesitate if she has to kill people, in fact,
