Once upon a time, there was an ethereal majesty named Calypso. Beautiful and gentle as she could be, and beloved by all beings, Calypso was the Princess of Elphame - the magnificent realm of fae folks and the otherkin. Unbeknownst to mortals, fairies belonged to four magical kinds, namely Berbanians, Celovains, Joetrems, and Oxidens. Calpyso’s magical skills and powers as the royalty of the faes were believed to be the strength of the entirety of Elphame.

However, one day as she roamed the forest alone gathering some wood for the fire at home, a terrible roar was heard, and a fierce beast soared through the air, seizing the cherished princess. She was held captive somewhere in Vladis, the land of woes; her precise location was still a mystery to all the otherkin. A dark creature with a profound voice sent word to her kingdom just prior to her abduction, saying he wanted the Crown of Immortality or else their home would be destroyed. This terrified the fae folks, as they and the otherkin were tied to their homes; if a home were destroyed, the owners too would perish and fade away.

The Elphamen knighthood had joined forces with the Jeminines and Neridons to search for the missing princess. The knighthood believed that Mugulumps were behind the abduction, but their apparent involvement was becoming more and more absurd, once they figured out that the Mugulumps had never once left their empire. So who could have abducted the princess? The leaders of the fae folks didn’t want the community to know, to try and keep them at ease, but someone had divulged the news, and now the whole kingdom was in a state of mayhem.


Task

This is a group-based continue-the-story roleplay activity. If you wish to participate, please sign up in this thread, and you will be given further instructions in your group thread.

This activity requires group members to create a story together, using some typical elements from fairy tales. The HINT Mods as the “Storyteller” will provide the beginning of the story, along with other necessary information, in your group thread. Each round, the storyteller will post a writing prompt in your group thread to guide you in using your own ideas to incorporate the new information and propel the plot towards the ending. Make sure to read the rules, requirements, and gameplay details that must be followed and included for your entry to count. These can be found in your group thread and within the second post of this thread - please be sure to read both of these carefully.


Prizes

First Prize - Troll Club + 4000 HP
Second Prize - Fairy Charm + 3000 HP
Third Prize - Dragon Charm + 2000 HP
Fourth Prize - 1000 HP
Fifth Prize - 1000 HP

Rules, Gameplay, and Other Additional Information

1. Sign-ups start today, March 1st. Please post in this sign-up thread if you wish to participate. Sign-ups end March 7th at 11:59 pm HEX time, so be sure to sign up before then!

2. Participants will be divided into groups of 5 by the moderators; no group sign-ups are allowed. They will then be tagged or shared to their respective group threads where they will jointly construct a story based on the prompts given by the moderators.

3. You should make your own original character to use when posting. You should continue to use this character throughout the entire contest for all of your story posts. You can decide who you want your character to be: what race they are, their age, their name, etc. The choice is yours!

4. Prior to the start of the the first round, lists of cards (set of words, elements, and ideas) will be given to each group member. Each participant will recive two cards from each of five categories. The five categories we have for this activity are: character, place, object, feature, and action. The lists will be posted in the group threads for easy reference.

5. Each round, a prompt will be provided by the moderators. They will also assign a category to each participant. When making their story post, each participant must choose a card on their given list from their assigned category. This word must be used in the story post, and the word you choose must be underlined. Any post without the chosen word underlined will not be eligible for a participation ticket for that round.

6. There will be five rounds and each round will be open for 48 hours. At the end of the 48 hours, that round will be over. No posts made outside the time frame will count for that round's participation. There is no required posting order within each group, but please keep in mind that this is a continue-the-story activity. All posts should take into account both the prompts and any other posts made previously. The final person to post in the final round should conclude the story, if possible.

7. Each participant must post only once per round. Roleplay posts must have a word count of 150-300 words.

8. Your posts shouldn't decide what another character is doing, only your own.

9. Participants will earn 1 ticket towards the main participation raffle for each round in which they make a valid post.

10. Each round, a randomizer will determine one participant from each group to receive a bonus ticket in addition to tickets awarded for participation. All prizes will be randomized from all tickets at the end of the contest.

11. Questions can be asked here in this thread.

12. No sharing of entries is allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, sharing your team thread with others not in your group or planning the story with others in your group. Each participant should post individually.

13. All work must be your own.

14. Any violations of the rules will result in disqualification.

are we permitted to talk among ourselves about where we want the story to go or do we have to do it blind?

No collaboration is allowed (which includes planning the story with one another in any way).

So talking amongst yourselves about the direction of the story won't be allowed.

I wanted to ask both of the above questions. As well as this, do the characters need to be human?

Oh, I get it. Say, if you got the word chicken, you’d do this:

“Billy handed his chicken to Bob”

Right?

from what I understand, if you have a category assigned to you, so say they give you a place - you choose one of the things from that category to use.
so you'd only use that one and underline it for that given post.

edit: thats what I understood, yes. if chicken is in your list of things for whatever category you got that round.
