Default MantleCon 1081 AE Workshop

I meant to get this up on the 1st but I'm just so far behind on things... Bleh.

(Inspiration credits go to Tzu and the event workshops she hosts)

How good are your art skills? Writing skills? Music skills? For the first time, MantleCon will sponsor an art contest. From artwork (traditional or digital), crafts, writing, music, video – anything! Do whatever you want (so long as it follows the requirements listed below), however you want! Entertain the masses, and get a reward for doing so!

There will be four categories: Best Progress, Muse, Most Original, and the Golden Theater.

Workshop submission deadline is March 31st. Edit: The deadline has been pushed back to April 5th!

Best Progress
The Best Progress award is given to the artist who listened intently to critique, mastered the art of personal growth, and made long leaps to better his/her piece.

Muse
The Muse is an award given to a person who didn't necessarily enter the thread as a participant, but rather as a supporter of the thread and the goal. He/she is a person who kept the thread alive with kind chatter, maybe donated something to the prizes, gave useful critique, submitted tutorials and ideas selflessly, and generally kept everyone motivated all the way.

Most Original
The Most Original Art Award is given to the artist(s) who have, in a positive way, stood out from the crowd, in choice of art form, subject, style and finish.

Nothing But Mantle
The Nothing But Mantle awards are given to the works that best show the spirit of MantleCon and the Krytan civil war – from 1072 AE to 1079 AE.

Golden Theater
Those who write in the style of a play will be eligible for a second reward special to this contest only: having the story featured during at least one of the four Golden Theaters during this year’s MantleCon!

General Requirements:
  • The theme of the work must be related to the White Mantle, Shining Blade, Shining Mantle, War in Kryta (event, not GW Beyond chapter), Mursaat, or Seers.
  • Must be submitted before April 1st, 2011 (those submitted on April 1st will not be accepted)
  • Be entertaining

Additional Writing Requirements:
  • Cannot exceed 6,000 words.

Additional Golden Theater Requirements:
  • Last 20-30 minutes in act-typing.
  • Be written as a play.
  • Be reasonable with amount of characters (and actions).

PRIZES
All prizes are subject to change based on new prizes obtained. Additional places will be added based on amount of prizes obtained.

Best Progress – 30 Royal Gifts; 1 Royal Gift Mini Set (Salma, Livia, Evennia)

Most Original –1st place: 7 Kegs of Ale - 2nd place: 30 Royal Gifts; 1 Royal Gift Mini Set (Salma, Livia, Evennia)

Muse – 15 Royal Gifts; 1 Full Common Birthday Mini Set (Jade Armor, Mursaat, Seer)

Nothing But Mantle – Full Oppressor’s set for HoM (110 Medals of Honor - see note)

Golden Theater – Featured during MantleCon; 1 Everlasting Unseen Tonic

Note: For the Oppressor’s weapon set for the Hall of Monuments, the winner will choose the attribute for the staff, focus, shield, and wand and which kind of bow. Weapons will be given one by one inside the Hall of Monuments for dedication; the prize is for the HoM, not to sell to others. If there are the weapons in the HoM already, the winner will be given another reward deemed equal by the staff based on how many oppressor’s weapons that are in the HoM already.

Judges:
  • Me (Konig Des Todes)
  • TBA

Yeah, my forgetfulness, combined with forcing to have the actual even earlier then planned and wanting a week to judge caused me to forget to move the start earlier than March 1st (I originally intended to give a month and a half, not a month), and then I forgot that it was March (or rather, that I had to put it up!).

So, sorry about that.

You're accepting stuff on the Shining Mantle, but not the White Blade?
Silliness aside, I can't draw or compose, so I'll probably have a go at writing something up. This competition sounds too good not to enter.

I know not what the "White Blade" is, but the "Shining Mantle" was a fan-made group which was the theme of the previous MantleCon - hence why that's a valid theme.

@Konig - The Shining Mantle was too mainstream, so the White Blade was set-up for the indie crowd.

That's fine actually. I just need to know what attributes/kinds of the weapons would be preferred. Details like that and which character(s) would be discussed between me and the winner after said winner is finalized.

Here's my entry although I'm not really sure if it counts, because I break lore and rewrite history in Hollywood-adaptation-of-beloved-comic-book-that-angers-hardcore-fans style.

Here's the dA link: http://fav.me/d3c9dg8

and spoiler tag version:



Don't worry, it's only ~2200 words, not 18,000 ;-)

Thistle, thats gripping, as usual, and beautifully written. But now I want to read more, and I am already waiting for more on your other stories.

Posts on these workshops (guru1 and guru2 both have threads) are slow. Glad at least one thing works.

Depending on how many submissions there are, I may shift prizes around because everything I have MUST go (too many things were donated and mushed with the things I farmed for me to figure out what doesn't have to go).

aww, thanks, Aero <3 I'm so sorry to keep you waiting on the Wintersday story, but on the plus side, you don't have to wait on this one since it's complete

Konig, I guess it's getting kinda late, but maybe you can catch more people's attention if this was a sticky? I would have expected more interest by now :/

If the mods were paying attention they woulda seen my request to sticky it (and they normally sticky things like this).

I guess people just aren't interested in the theme...

Edit: Had a prize altered. Most Original will be having 7 Kegs of Ale as first place, and the previous prize as second.

Considering the lack of wip's and "muse"s, I'll probably move Best Progress and Muse into a second for Nothing But Mantle and Golden Theater.

Well, entries are accepted through 31 March, correct? I have grown accustomed to people waiting until the last minute to put something out on the table, so around five days is plenty of time for new works.

That being said: How can Mantlecon NOT be an interesting topic? It is Mantlecon, one of the greatest player-generated pieces of (maybe quasi-)lore in Guild Wars...it is interesting by nature!

Still can't have a best progress and a muse without wips being posted. People tend to wait to the end for final products.

I'll just re-distribute prizes on the 31st. Winners will be announced on the day of MantleCon (April 10th). Speaking of which, I need to post that information soon.

I'm extending the deadline.

I realized that I don't need 10 days to judge works, so I'm giving an additional 5 days before the deadline (making the deadline April 5th).
