Hey Everlasting! Come Saturday, August 20th the Sekhem-Sa will be hosting a Bio Contest in Echo Plaza with over a billion inf in prizes! Yes! Distill your character's entire life story down into 1024 characters or less and potentially win free money! The Sekhem-Sa is a gothic roleplaying group, a sanctuary for the lost, damned, persecuted, and outcast: our members include vampires, werewolves, librarians, monsters, and praetorian war machines among other things. Roleplaying is not needed to participate but we will be IC during the event and we encourage you to come out, meet new people and have fun! There will also be a side costume contest that will run concurrently to the Bio Contest, no need to set up a separate area as all entrees to the main event will automatically be considered for their costume for MORE free money. No need to stress about one or the other if you want to participate, just dress how you like and enjoy! (Here's a screenshot from our first Bio contest about a year ago!)
Hello COH RP community I recently started delving into the COH storyline (after having never read the in game storyline details except for the sunset AMA interview post) and decided to try adding a bio to my fully incarnated crab Spider SoA. The problem is that he's "Natural" origin and all his attacks use the little gun (not even the spider backpack) that all SoA archetype uses in the early levels. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on an interesting back story or a way to logically explain how his powers/attacks become so powerful as an incarnate when he's shooting everything from his tiny BB gun as a "Natural" origin character?
untilEvery hero (or villain) has an origin. What's yours? Can your description shed insight into that costume, name, and origin? Let's find out! Who? Hosted by myself (@x5 on Queen Alyssa Q'Uzixola of Xzianthia) and DawL (@VuDu DawL). Should have other helpers too (hopefully!) What? 5 Best in Category Origin ( Technology, Science, Natural, Mutation, and Magic ) where the following will be judged based on BOTH: Backstory : up to the 1023 character limit in the biography. We will be reading these and considering how it fits the visual costume! Costume : creativity for how this connects to the backstory and origin type. Flashy or subtle doesn't matter as much showing thoughtfulness & uniqueness! Where? Everlasting server, Kallisti Wharf zone, in front of the statue of Marcus Cole (near the "on the shoulders of giants" exploration badge). When? Saturday 3/20/2021, which is this week as I'm posting this calendar event. Voting is planned to start by 6:30PM (Eastern Time), need to be here before that. The plan is to have all winners declared before 7PM (Eastern Time), so people can hopefully make one of the raids. We have instructed coalition allies, and Xzianthia military & civilian personnel to show up 30 minutes in advance. Why? We're wanting to reward people who've taken the time to really think about their characters, and encourage more people to write about it in their character information / biography / description. Kallisti Wharf has been chosen for its accessibility to BOTH BlueSide and RedSide, so villains do not feel afraid to come out and show off that presentation! (we'll just keep our eyes on you) How? Judge votes will be handled in private over voice comms. What we are going to be looking for, just to be clear, is 5 main winners one in each of the origin categories, that has a well-written biography that matches a well-designed visual costume appearance. Participants are treated as guests of honor, no matter their faction; and we ask everyone just to show respect & patience with the other people. If for some reason we don't have a character with one of the origins (i.e.: missing let's say any character showing as Science) then we will double-up on one of the other categories. The number of honorable mentions and small prizes will directly depends on how many donations we receive. We have candy canes, millions of influence, and rare salvage up for grabs. I would like to give out many smaller prizes too, to thank people for taking the time to come out, but that depends on how much donor funds come in advance and how many people show up for this event.
