Creation Challenge: August 2011

Due Date: August 31th

Theme: Rebirth

System: None

Objective: Create a small town, hamlet, village, etc. You may interpret the theme in whatever way you choose, so long as it is present. For the purposes of this creation challenge, do not include statistics from a game system, and instead describe only roleplaying aspects and information. This should be able to be imported into almost any game. No time period is specified, if you want to make a sci-fi village, or perhaps a bronze age village, go for it.

The more detail you are able or willing to put into it, the better. Putting details into important characters in the village can make a huge difference between a place the players don't bother remembering and a place that becomes near and dear to their hearts, or is at least memorable for years to come.

When the due date comes around, a poll will be put up to decide who has won. The criteria to determine the winner is the subjective views of each individual voter.

Prize: Bragging Rights, and possibly something more tangible.

Please create your own thread in the Challenges Sub-Forum for submissions, and you can ask any questions in this thread.

The theme is rebirth and the objective is village. Does that mean the villages should have something to do with rebirth? Or just that rebirth is meaning the challenges are being reborn?

In any case, I'll be entering as I'm currently kinda/sorta trying to write a campaign setting for ICONS that's like "Red Dawn" (inspired by the Price of Freedom rpg) meets Superman.

That's what I figured, but I wasn't totally sure.

I'm gonna pass on this one. I have been in kinda a setting funk for quiet a while now, not sure why. I think it was because I put a lot of effort into world building and got burnt out on it. I'll prolly jump on the character challenges though, or maybe encounter challenges.

Yup. I'm working on mine. I think I'm about halfway done.

I started with a small idea and ended up with a location-specific adventure (scalable). However, the theme is only weakly included in the location so far, so things must change.

Posting to indicate that I haven't forgotten about this.

Interesting take on the theme Cameron, looks like you've got the only entry, and the last day is tomorrow. I would have entered myself, but as the person running it, I felt it was inappropriate to do so >_<.

Thanks Link. If I wasn't planning to use this elsewhere, I'd consider the time I spent on it fruitless because of the lack of competition. But it's not wasted as it will get a section in my work in progress setting for ICONS.

I'd certainly appreciate some competition.

I'm going to extend this until the 31st. I'd enter myself but as the one who is running the contest, it's not exactly fair.

Although the winner was going to be decided by vote anyway, so it probably won't matter.

If it's up to a vote then you should enter. There is no bias.

Link, if you've got an entry, then by all means enter. I don't think runners/winners should not enter.

Dundjinni forums have contests (used to be monthly at the height of the program) and winner picks the theme, but as it's a voted decision, that doesn't prevent them from entering.

I'd rather lose to someone else's entry than "win" unopposed.

I posted my own half-hearted entry so at least you can't just coast into the win.

Given the limited participation, maybe the next one could be something small that everyone could get into... like "provide a detailed physical, historical and mechanical description of a weapon or other piece of personal equipment (wand, lamp, armour, crown) in 500 to 1000 words." or something.

I was thinking something like a non-system specific NPC, but I like your idea better. Definitely need more participation.
