    The Writing Conquest

    Pokemon Edition !

    Welcome to our 2018 Writing Conquest, a hit writing event from last year that we thought we'd bring back for the new year! This is a team challenge. This event's team theme, chosen by the community, is GENERATION 1 STARTER POKEMON ... AND ALSO PIKACHU and participants will be randomized onto teams. The four teams are as follows -- Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Pikachu.

    Conquest Guidelines
    • This event will run until March 10.
    • Participants who sign up will be randomized onto one of the four teams. Sign-up includes a template participants edit as they fulfill challenges.
    • In order to complete a challenge, required posts or threads have been written AFTER the start of this event (January 9, 2018). You may not use posts written prior to the start of the event to complete a challenge.
    • Challenges are repeatable unless stated otherwise. You can’t do the same challenge multiple times in one post or thread (i.e. referencing a location or current event multiple times in a thread).
    • New challenges may be added throughout the month, so check back often! New additions will be marked with a colored *(asterisk).
    • You can submit challenge suggestions to @Octi throughout the month which may be added to the list later on, or saved for future events! Not all submissions may be used.
    • If you are interested in signing up, fill out the form at the bottom of the second post and post it in this thread using your OOC Account. You will be randomly sorted onto one of the four teams. In order to collect points, you must edit any challenges you complete into your post. Be sure to double check your numbers and links so that they are correct. No links, no points, and nobody wants that!

    The Challenges

    One Point Challenges

    1.1: Player posts in somebody else's organizer. Plotting must be something with substance, so “Hey, I think character A would be great with character B, let’s thread!” does not count. One point per plotter. Although multiple posts in plotters are awesome, they won’t earn you extra points.
    1.2: Player posts in somebody else's brainstorming thread. One point per brainstorm. Although multiple posts in brainstorms are also awesome, they won’t earn you extra points.
