About the Competition

:pointr: STORY :pointl:

You hear Gems speaking of a Grand Battle, the winner granted the ability to receive more freedom and power than the Diamonds would ever allow. It’s a very mysterious offer from an even more mysterious group of Gems, and something is most certainly suspicious about them. But the opportunity to gain more freedom and power are almost nonexistent in these Diamond-ruled times.

Do you ignore the offer?

Or are you ready for battle?

As stated, the Round 1 hiatus would end before/on January. Due to not reaching the minimum number of completed entries for Round 1, we have decided to close the group down and end it as a draw. We would like to thank everyone for their time and effort that they poured into their entries, and to those who finished we would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts and would like to express how sorry we are that this couldn't go further.

As a somewhat compensation for all the hard work put in, I would like to offer anyone who is interested an automatic contributor/mod status in my new group Spectramites. This is an open species group inspired by all the gem court groups that's been popping up, it will have a story progression that I'm really excited to get into and is a lot lighter on the workload when it comes to art, nothing will be mandatory and the mods will also get to interact and contribute to the group more than simply judging entries. If you were one of the people who finished their round 1 entry and are interested in the group/or already in the group please note me (SpadesArts) first.

Again, thank you all for your hard work and we are terribly sorry to cut things off, but we don't want this group to hang in oblivion forever and felt closure would be better than to keep everyone's hopes up.


EDIT: :iconamericangirlhope: has offered to draw portraits of competitors' gemsonas as a thank you for their competition and effort. Thank you for volunteering to do this!

Entry numbers are still low, so Round 1 will be put on hiatus until enough are entered to give a specific date.

We need at least 8 finished ones to move on, the hiatus will end before January.



Our competitors have been selected and teams have been randomly created through our database. You have the entire Silver Sun Temple to explore and work through as your battleground.

You have until November 2nd to complete this round and proceed one step ahead to your freedom.

Just a bit of a heads up for those still hungry for a gem oct, but I found this: off-facet-olympics.deviantart.…
It's a bit more... casual then the Silver Sun plot, but since I'm still hungering for an oct, I thought I'd present this as an alternative for anyone that feels the same.

Just in case if the judge forgot that my entry is done.
Here it is! Be sure you click download for some of the page if you're having trouble reading the small words and stuff…
