Ava Verino, of Elanorium, came to me explaining she wanted to show the importance of the Dark Character Avatar. Many think of the Dark Character as all bad and evil; role-playing a mean character, but there are other characteristics of the Dark Avatar ("Avatar") that can be subtly alluring, and not mean or necessarily evil. Just by the "appearance" of the avatar, one can achieve a character which is dark and creepy. "He looked so creepy, I wanted to back away."
This brought to mind, how cool it would be if we had a Creative Avatar Contest? Every few months we will feature a character Avatar to create and we will offer prizes too. Once your Avatar has been created, we will turn your Avatar into an NPC (non-playing character) and then place them on display at the RP Hub, for voting. We will leave the display open for public voting for one week.
The contest intent is to add Avatars to role-play demesnes, so creating full perm Avatars is required. All Avatars must be original. We will credit the winning creator including a poster of their winning Avatar. The winning Avatar will also be permanently displayed at the Role Play HUB on display. How cool is that?
Please residents of the community, if you have gifts that you would like to contribute for the prizes we would very much appreciate that. We will announce prizes soon.
Contest runs from September 1st - October 1st
Avatar entries close on September 21st
Contact Marianna Monentes-Softly anytime when you have your original Avatar finished
The RP Hub people will complete all Avatar NPCs, for consistency
Voting from September 22nd - October 1st
