:bulletred: Spring Continuous Events are currently CLOSED:bulletred:







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 submit the same tokota twice in one class, until it has been judged.
  • You may create 10 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.








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!
