X-Men: Evolution OC Tournament by rainrach X-Men: Evolution OC Tournament by rainrach
CAN IT BE?! ARE THE LEGENDS TRUE?! Yes. Well, maybe embellished a bit, but still true! The :iconevo-obsessed-club: and the :iconthebrotherhoodclub: have teamed up to do the unthinkable, have an Original Character contest. More than a contest, it's a TOURNAMENT!

This idea, gratefully borrowed from the :iconstar-trekking: club, is the first ever official OC Tournament in the fandom. I think you've all been painfully aware of :iconblazerocket: and my disdain for the inclusion of fan characters in our contests. Well, now there's a WHOLE TOURNAMENT dedicated to it for you to OC up all you want!

[EDIT]: I've removed the original rules from this description and have posted them in a handy-dandy journal at #TheBrotherhoodclub.

:iconstarplz:PLEASE SEE THE OFFICIAL RULES HERE:iconstarplz:

(they are more complete than the rules in this description were).

Welcome to the first ever official X-Men: Evolution OC Tournament!!

Tournament Phase 1 Begins: October 1st
Tournament Phase 1 Ends: October 31st

Promo: *BlazeRocket and me. Blaze drewed the X-Men, I drewed the Brotherhood and put it all together. :B

I sent a note to the club yesterday and today while checking a different note I noticed that the little symbol next to my sent note was red. Does that mean it failed to send?

Sorry, which club did you send it to? The EOC got a note from you a little bit ago that we haven't responded to... but that's about it, I think?

Wondering-Antagonist Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010  Hobbyist
Yes that is the one I sent it too. I just wasn't sure because normally when it hasn't been checked the symbol is just yellow, so seeing a red one threw me off.

note? do you mean telling the group that she's coming or do you mean submiting the bio and the comic to the group?
Reply

rainrach Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2010
Let me direct your attention to the section of the rules labeled "Phase 1 (How to enter)" and the number 5: Send links to the bio and to the comic in a note to the respective team you which to join. Note #Evo-Obsessed-Club for X-Men OCs and #TheBrotherhoodclub for Brotherhood OCs.

What this means is that when you finish your bio and comic, note the respective team with LINKS to your pieces so that Blaze or myself can find them, favorite them, and update the journal to include the entry in the contest. We don't watch all our members like they watch up and might not know when you've finished your entry. Noting us with links to the bio and comic lets us know we have an entry and makes it easier for us not to have to weed through your gallery to locate it. Make sense?

Oooone more question I have been trying to figure out on my own. At the end of our intro comic, we do have to establish that they are going to the mansion/boarding house right? Or is it JUST how they got their powers and how they got to the schools is in phase 2/ just not talked about?
Reply
:iconrainrach:
rainrach Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2010
You just establish their powers and when they manifested. You DO NOT mention/show them going to the mansion/boarding house. If you did, it might involve showing Brotherhoodians or X-Men and that's not what we want. We only want to see YOUR character in YOUR element getting their powers. Thanks!

You can draw stick figures, for all we care (though you may want to label who is who in that case XD ). We will be looking at the creativity that goes into creating a fun and unique character, as well as how you have that character deal with the problems and stories we throw at them. :D

What do you mean by "comic canon characters"?
Reply
:iconrainrach:
rainrach Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
This means that you cannot enter "Polaris" or "Dazzler" or "Cable" as your "OC." These are character canon to the COMIC but not to Evo. Arguably, they COULD be "OCs" because they were never IN Evo and would be a fan-creation of a comic pre-existing character. However, nuts to that BS. Use your IMAGINATION. :D

oki, forget I asked. I can't draw, I cant do comics, my OC breaks more or less every rule, it's merely impossible for someone like me to compete. I think I'll wait till I get more ideas and drawing skills.

so..... does this mean that they have physical... umm... thingeys (e.g.: fur, scales, slime ect)? Coz I have an OC but she can't enter if so. I'm gonna have to strip a load offa my character (powers, origin, relationships, physical defects(I think that's what scales are)) I'll try my best but I don't even know how to submit it into the competition :( (I hate being the newbie)
Reply
:iconrainrach:
rainrach Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
I'll answer your question anyway, because others might have similar questions.

1. They do not HAVE to have a physical mutation (scales, fur, fins, etc). They CAN but they don't HAVE to. Physical mutations are the ONLY mutations that they can have FROM BIRTH though. So, like Kurt, they can be blue and have a tail FROM BIRTH but they can't have been able to teleport FROM BIRTH. They can look just like a normal human but have mutant powers or have a physical mutation that makes them look different...have mutant powers AND look different!

2. Please read ALL THE RULES. Each section gives valuable information. If you look at the section called "Phase 1," you'll get all the information you need about entering the competition.

I know you've decided not to pursue entering, but I wanted to answer your questions in case someone else was also confused. Thanks!

I have a pre-existing oc and she has a brother. I wont be using him in the tournament but I'm still allowed to bring him up right, talk about him and what he can do etc?
Reply
:iconblazerocket:
BlazeRocket Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Yeah, of course. Your OC is welcome to have a back story. What we're trying to avoid, for example, is your OC having a brother, and then that brother comes to visit her at the X-mansion while she's moving in, and while she's unpacking her clothing, the brother starts having adventures with the other Characters. Or, another example of what not to do, your OC has a brother, and instead of writing a comic about the subject you're given, you spend five pages on a flashback to your OC and her brother when they were children, and then sneak the subject you were supposed to be covering in the last panel.

Basically: Feel free to have as much family and back story as you want, but remember that the comic is supposed to be about the OC you applied, and what she's up to NOW.

Does that make sense?

So gonna do this.
qq though.
You say that characters can't be involved with canon ones in anyway, but I'm guessing that the media in that world has the X-men be pretty common knowledge, and the Brotherhood at least vaguely known, to common people.
So oc's might know -of- the two teams, but just never have interacted with them or even really cared about them, right?

You may notice a lot of wiggle room like that in the rules. We ask that if you notice loop holes like that, you don't abuse them too much, and try to stick to the spirit of the rules, if not the letter. And of course, Rain and I are always here to answer questions, should you want to double check something ^_^

... well... not always. We do have to sleep sometime o.o
