So you may be wondering what is the difference between the Character Theme Contest and Character Contest. To compare and contrast, the original Character Contest selects a certain cabin/god parent that will be the basis of the month's contest; as for the Character Theme Contest, it instead chooses a certain theme of a god/goddess. Therefore, entries can have larger options of god parents, as long as it fits the theme. This time, the contest doesn't only consider cabin gods, but non-cabin gods too.
You must have a rank of level 3 or above.
Any god parent is fine, as long as his/her scope fits into the month's theme.
Judging takes place on the last day of July
Entry deadline is the day before the last day of the month. Example, July has 31 days, so the deadline would be the 30th because judging takes place on the 31st.
You put your name (using Heading 3) and your character name below it. Put the character's history, personality, equipment etc. Treat it like you would a claim. (If you win you have to make the character, although even if you don't win and have spaces left for characters you may still make them)
The theme will change every month.
For those who don't win, do need to put their character through regular claiming in order for it to be approved.
Entries can also be Broken Covenant characters if you please (which increases what god parents can be used for the history) but if you win, you wouldn't be able to make the character until you get faction approval. In choosing a non-cabin god parent, take into consideration if the god/goddess can or cannot actively have children such as Chaos, Pan, Selene, Kronos, Atlas, Artemis, Hestia, Gaia, Hera, and Ouranos. Even if they can, also consider how you will go around the history with the god parent you chose.
Also take note that if you are planning to enter with a BC character, keep in mind to add the character's chosen faction, and his/her reasons for joining that certain faction.
In the event of a tie the char in the cabin least filled automatically wins; if the two cabins have equal amounts of campers a tie breaking judge will be called upon
Note: User must either update their name in the character forum to reflect their prize choice or notify an admin or rollback to update the user/character forum for them

March 2018 - Irish Potato Famine History Theme
Contests are now being handled a bit differently. Instead of having one big long page of everyone's histories, you'll enter your character name below and create a new page. The list will automatically be created as pages are made. Make sure to add your user name on the page somewhere, you may even use your own special user category that's used on your character pages to make sure we know who's claim is whose (or put your name in the title, like "Jim Brown - Bach's Entry"). Each month the category must be changed in order for the list to function properly without listing old contest entries, it needs to be changed below, as well as Here.
