Boon 11072 by TotemSpirit






Continuous events are shows and competitions that will be rolled, every time there are at least 5 entries in the folder, or if two weeks have passed since the oldest entry was submitted, whichever comes first and however frequently the admins' schedule allows. Some activities are without a deadline, but many are seasonal. Seasonal activities will remain open for 3 consecutive months of the year before turning over to a different event at the new quarter.


Rules and Requirements


Basic rules for all classes


  • Each "round" has a maximum of five participants. A round is a scored group that compete against each other.
  • You cannot have more than 3 entries currently submitted for a single event class at one time.
  • You cannot submit the same tokota twice in one class, until it has been judged.
  • New * by Kittyrocker You may now create up to 15 continuous event entries per month for all classes, total.
  • There are three differently scored types of events: Activity, Practice, and Standard. All types share effort/RNG/competition bonuses, but are weighted differently for each type. There are many variables that can increase your score.
  • To participate, you must create a new tracker journal or add a section to your current trackers, where admins can respond with official event results.
  • You may only win first place once per class, per tokota, per month.
  • Entries are limited to 1 tokota (or team) per entry, with the exception of collaborations for a maximum of 2 tokotas (or teams). This applies across all event types and classes.


Basic requirements for all classes


  • Tokotas must be full body (75%) in art, and mentioned throughout the piece in literature.
  • Handlers, where required, must be at least 50% depicted in art and be substantially mentioned in literature.
  • Moderately complex backgrounds are required in art as well as coloring. Shading is optional. Grayscale/monochromatic art is acceptable if the tokota still has identifiable markings of a value relative to its import.
  • Literature entries must follow the same basic requirements as for drawing, and have a minimum of 1200 words, with a clear beginning and end.
  • Where equipment is listed it must be shown at least 50% (e.g. sleds, tack).


How to Enter


Submit your entry to the class's linked folder with the appropriate form filled out in the description. Each event type's form is listed in its own section.
Once your entry has been judged, continue on to the bank to redeem your prizes.

Prizes will not be automatically added to your bank account when the entry is judged!








SPRING ACTIVITY EVENTS

"You don't need much. A good nose, some common sense -- oh, and luck. Lots and lots of luck."
- Meira Dawson, Blackbend Kennels handler, 1933



Arrow Right by Catatonic-Art JUDGING FOR EACH ACTIVITY CLASS


Your entry will be rolled as if it were a regular Activity entry. The winner is judged by the TT value* of the first item in the roll. If there is a tie, items will be compared down the line until there is a winner. RNG is a final tie-breaker. You may redeem any resulting items in the bank's appropriate Activity Redeem Thread, just like any regular Activity entry. No other bonuses (effort, participation, background, etc.) are taken into account.

*Some items do not have a set TT value as they cannot be redeemed to the group for TT. The TCA has created a hypothetical price list for items that do not currently have a listed value. These items still cannot be sold back to the group, but should your tokota find any one of these in its Activity Events, they now retain value towards the Event.

The results from successful activity rolls may count towards your tokota's Alpha Prerequisites!

Since you get your Spring Exploring rolled like the "normal exploring activity" Do you still get the +2HP?
Discrete-Disguise's avatar
very late, however you may only get the show bonus or the activity bonus. they don't stack c:

Can you show multiple Tokos in an activity CE entry, with one competing and the other(s) just being treated like regular activities?
Keksefuzzy's avatar
KeksefuzzyProfessional Writer
You can put other Tokotas into the pieces for HP, but they may not be rolled as activities. Just like any other section of the group, a single piece may not be submitted to two sections.

Shouldn't Impeccable Stamina count as a bonus for the endurance run?
"+10 bonus points to any group-held endurance competition."
Keksefuzzy's avatar
KeksefuzzyProfessional Writer
CEs now use the stated bonuses rather than every single bonus that 'might' apply. This is to keep things balanced. We didn't forget any bonuses :)

If such images are rolled as activities without a problem, can I use this style for CEs too?

I have a quick question about the Dances with tokotas prompt for lit, its says 
  • Entries must be mid-show, depicting your handler and tokota moving to the grove in tandem -- or at least trying to!
Is this exclusive for drawn pieces, because its about near impossible to write just mid show XD, or could include like, some before, during and after, as long as its clearly included?
Keksefuzzy's avatar
KeksefuzzyProfessional Writer
I'm fine with before and after, as long as it's not 100% before or 100% after. The actual competing must be in there somewhere :)
Shangry-Ia's avatar
" New * by Kittyrocker You cannot have more than 3 entries currently submitted for a single event class at one time."

Can someone define "at one time", please? Is it a month, the season...? Sorry, if it's just me ^^'


Also - can CEs be gifted/commissioned? As before
Keksefuzzy's avatar
KeksefuzzyProfessional Writer
You can only have 3 of one kind in at any given time. Once those 3 are judged, you're welcome to submit more entries to that particular event. We just don't want people submitting 5 pieces to the same event and only competing with themselves, you know? And yes, you are welcome to commission them!
Shangry-Ia's avatar
Ah, thank you so much xD I went with lots of gift entries for my tribe mates (for the showstopper requirement) in the meantime - I hope, they don't expire at all LOL. But it's good to know, I wasn't sure.
