Recommended Posts

 🦙🐍 Animal Themed! 🐘🦑

First off, I'm GM Tahquitz.  By now, you've probably seen me around on the forums a bit.  And before the event details, I wanted to recognize GM Miss and her amazing work in keeping the community entertained in the last year.  Starting this month, she will be taking a much-deserved and well-earned break.  I'll be organizing the November Costume Contest in her place on Homecoming this month.

Costume manipulation shall not be considered legitimate in costume contests. (Use of any tricks not permitted in the Costume Creator during normal gameplay, usually indicated by a lock icon over the costume slot.)  Any costume manipulation will be disqualified. It is an issue that will be patched in future updates and the practice is not allowed on HC.

 

Also please note that costume contest judging is subjective.  There are all sorts of corners and nooks of the Geekdom World Map, and the wisdom in trusting that not everyone has seen all the places you have yet is appreciated.  Our GM's who volunteer their time thank you for your patience and understanding in keep the event running as smooth as possible.

If you have any issues, please contact me here or on Discord!

Do you guys want real animals only or can people enter mythical animals such as dragons?

Whoa, are you trying to say dragons aren't real?!? Ridiculous. Next you'll say the Earth is round! 🤣

@TabithaPandana No mythical/fictional animals this time around, but stay tuned with that idea for a future contest. 🙂

@Hopestar So, what you're saying really is... which Paragon Studios developer should I send the prize to for making Peacebringers/Warshades?  I have no idea, myself. 😄

For clarity, @GM Tahquitz, when you say "no fictional animals," you mean to say "no animals based on existing intellectual properties," right?

Like, in this particular contest, we're allowed to have catgirls and giant wolf mutants, but not a basilisk or a minotaur?

 . . . although, not being able to do a minotaur might complicate things for players who want to use the bovine heads . . . 

 

Or is this a contest intended to reward players for things specifically like:

By function of the Costume Creator, human toons portraying modern animals are fine.  (Wolf mutants, Cat girls, all okay.)  Minotaurs, griffins, dragons, etc. we'll save for another time.

Yes, when answering questions on the forums I stated that mythical creatures were not going to be considered, however during judging I didn't get the word out effectively with the Homecoming Staff, so there are a few entries that were mythological anyway.

 

It was not the judges' fault, it was mine.  I apologize for that outcome.
