A labyrinth of stainless steel walls towers above you, reflecting a harsh fluorescent light whose origin you cannot detect. The air is thick against your exposed limbs, humid, heavy, chafing. You run forward along the seemingly endless pathways, raw grains of earth crawling between your toes like specks of sandpaper. Anxiety buzzing in your veins, you quicken your stride, running until your lungs burn and your senses are reduced to the frantic beating of your heart as its mantra fills your ears. The next turn looms closer, and the gasp that snakes its way between your lips almost obscures the guttural undertone now interrupting the sound of your heartbeat. It almost sounds like... cheering. You barrel around the intersection, your fingers grazing the sleek metal of the nearest wall, and feel your legs collapse at the sight before you.

What happens next, you might be wondering? Unfortunately, I don't have that answer, as the possibilities are endless and lie within the minds of HEX's role-players. Whether it be creating worlds so vivid you can feel the foreign waters crashing against your feet, or writing characters so real you feel you have known them all your life, role-playing demands a lot from those who dare to attempt it. While the results can often be marvelous, filled with dark, poignant, and breathtaking tales, they can also fall a bit flat, the world they are meant to portray crumbling beneath the reader's uninterested eyes. Do you think you have what it takes to enthrall readers with your role-plays, to transport them to other worlds the likes of which they've never seen? Perhaps it's time that you turn that last corner and find out.

Hi! This looks like so much fun!

Couple questions about the recommended role-play samples:
~ Are you looking for sample role-play posts, or threads?
~ Does it matter what type of role-play sample? In particular, is a sample from a Quidditch match ok?

Can the sample rp be from a club? Or does it have to be in a public thread?

Can I just check, will only the 1st place winner get a prize, or will there be smaller prizes for everyone who gets eliminated along the way? It only shows the main prize I the watch thread, so I wasn't sure.

Thanks

@Kasey Posts ir threads are fine. The purpose of the RP doesn’t matter, but any technical aspect that is specific to, say, Quidditch won’t be taken into consideration.

@Salazia The samples have to be from public threads, as our judges won’t necessarily have access to whichever club they are posted in.

@Vitallani There are prizes for every contestant that participated in the rounds, varying from round to round, and for third, second, and first places. These will be posted when each round goes live.

@Morgana-Malipiero In this instance, post-Earth means anything “after Earth” in a sense: whether it be a sci-fi space opera where the characters have left Earth due to dystopian levels of nature exploit and climate change in search of new planets to live on or Earth became a medieval-times utopia keen on chivalry and without modern technology. The key is that Earth as we know it should no longer exist, and a different sort of setting should be the main scenario, whether it’s a fantasy theme, sci-fi theme, cyberpunk theme, etc.

Ooh, this looks fun. Probably too young though, again.

Question: Are there word counts involved that need to be stayed under?

@Lilyanabell any minimum or maximum word counts will be expressed in the rules for applications or for each round, in their respective posts.

Also, definitely not too young! We'll consider all applications - we're judging solely on RP quality.

Ok - there are still some open questions for me.

The rp prompt to which we reply - is it based on an existing fandom? Or in other words are there restrictions/lore/canon to keep in mind or do we just expand on the worldbuilding done in the prompt.

Second question: participation raffle. Let's say I do get in I of course have my contestant greek letter thingy and may not tell anybody who I am but may I also take part in the participation contest as user yesachael?
sorry for the many thingies my brain doesnt want to english right now.

You can always make a thread in your store and transfer your posts there!

For the app submission, do you mean? It is not based off an existing fandom, so you have complete creative liberty in your response, so long as it responds to and appears to take place in the same world described in the app post.

After a discussion we have decided that competitors may participate in the audience raffle, so long as you continue to keep your anonymity.

Contestants may not, however, vote on their favorite users each round.

@Dawn-Rain as stated in the application post, you should Owl it with BBCode turned off to Beedle the Bard. Remember to follow all the instructions in that post.
