(Belated) Judging Criteria PostHello,
This journal has been a long time coming and for that, we sincerely apologise. There are mitigating factors for this delay but, at the end of the day, they are excuses. So without wasting any more time, let's lay out our judging criteria for those who wished to know!
Our judging is separated into two sections; Effort, and Storytelling. Effort is graded out of 5, while Storytelling is graded out of 10.
Here is the in-depth requirements for grades in Effort:
5/5- The artist’s entry has demonstrated an absolute amount of effort based on their skill level.

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.

CORUS NPC EVENT 2
Alright, my non-competitive underlings! Since you're not competing in the tournament, I'm gonna hafta ask little favours of you from time to time. Don't you worry much, they're nothing life-threatening. Not right NOW, anyway. Who knows what kinda missions I might send the more capable Corusites on in the future? Anyways, here's the few things I need you guys to do.
Number one! Did you guys know we got a daycare and nursery? For the baby Pokémon. And occasionally baby humans. Not many students get knocked up, I should say, but whatever. We got it if we need it. Well, it's kinda fallen into disarray. It looks more like a prison than a nursery! So we've set aside a budget for you guys to go spruce it up, make it actually look inviting to the little ones! Check out Severstal market for furniture, paint and any other kind of crap you deem fit to go in there. Have fun!
Number two! The deserts of Corus hide tons of ancient ruins. And inside ancien

Papi, arrete por favor. Estás les confondant. Hellow, there! I know a buying customer when I see one... take a look at our wares--let me know if you want anything, yeah? Oh wait... you say you're part of the regional tournament? Ciel dessus! No charge for first-timers!
Feel free to have your pick of one complimentary accessory for each of your pokemon, yes?
All accessories that are colored grey can come in a maximum of two colors.
General Accessories Available to All Factions
Imports from Ladon
Imports from Cita Erbonde
Imports from Corus
*Corus accessories are highly customisable; the pauldrons can be of any Pokémon-related design, and so long as the bracers/shin guards roughly retain the basic
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!2 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
Welcome to Cita Erbonde!Hi, everyone! Gosh, this is so weird to be talking to you all for the first time! Er... I'll just try to be brief I guess, and make sure I don't overload you guys with information, okay?Welcome to Cita Erbonde!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say hi, Edol! ^^ This is Edolynn, my little baby ball-o-fire piggy! And I'm Kassy. Your region leader. "This region" being our beautiful, colorful Porta del Pizzicare! (or port-a-del-pit-ze-cah-ray for newcomers!)
Now, for those of you who might not know the lay of the land, I'll give you the skinny. There's three main parts to our lovely little bay: Cita Erbonde (the capital city), "the spit" (aka "that big hunk of land curling into the harbor"), and Cucciaio (my hometown!). Now unfortunately, as lovely as Cucciaio is (oh... by the way, that's pronounced "coo-kee-eye-oh") I have to letcha guys know... that city's off-limits for living on for y'alls. Sorry! Town ordinance that's been in place for seventy years...I'm trying my best to chat with the town leaders to get them to change that rul
GOOD NEWS: ROUND ONE EXTENSION. (+ info)Angels have descended from the heavens, and they have spoke to the admins and said: give them one more week.GOOD NEWS: ROUND ONE EXTENSION. (+ info)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.
For the HTML to do links with text, it is NEXT/PREVIOUS
When your round is complete, ONLY when it is complete--not if it is unfinished and the de
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 + PASSPORTS2 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:
