Tournment (ROUND 5! FINAL ROUND!)

Mon Sep 1, 2014, 12:04 AM
Helmy says:

Guess what, losers! This is the last round of the tournament, isn't that great? Later in the quarter we're going to be having some stupid ass ceremony and a dance (groans) celebrating the winner and whatever turdblossoms managed to graduate from the academy this year. I think there might be some, if Kaine and Kichi don't murder each other for the graduation spotlight. Wouldn't that be so sad?

I mean, what would we do without Kichi. The academy would never be the same, and who would get rid of the unwanted pedestrians in Moonseed Lane? Bitches jaywalk too much and don't look where they're going.

The final tournament round is on... SNOW!! That's right, the snows are finally coming back to the academy! The snow has replaced the sand, and you should watch out for snow monsters.

Example: 2-0 is two wins, zero losses

Glitch 8-0 || Pet 6-3
Dion 7-3 || Darvenel 7-2
Kaine 6-3 || Contour 6-3
Chrono 6-2 || Alexei 4-4
Kichi 7-2 || Quinlan (Drop)
Cressida 6-3 || Lilin 4-5
Kyriel 4-2-1 || Enri (Drop)
Jinxie 5-3 || Elijah (Drop)
Kyran 7-3 || Ida 2-6
Shira 4-5 || Sol 3-6
Eva 4-4 || Thane (Drop)
Broken 5-4 || Virgil 4-5

Remember, keep fighting in the rounds, even if you lose, to improve your score and get better prizes!

Quick FAQ

Please read the Group Rules and FAQ for more information.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: Do you have to be an artist to join? :bulletred:
No - you can ask someone else to make your application picture (or commission it). Other submissions can be roleplays or stories.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: When is the chatroom usually active? :bulletred:
6:00 PM - 11:00 PM CST is usually when we have the most people.

:bulletred: How many classes do I have to register for? :bulletred:
Minimum one, maximum three.

:bulletred: What creatures can I use for my student? :bulletred:
Anything supernatural or paranormal - but ensure the character isn't too strong as a beginner.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Pretty much anything - we accept logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital), plushies or other traditional work of your characters -- as long as it's related to your OW character or another OW character, or the recognizable setting.

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

Is it okay if I join before I submit my character?

I'm not a formal admin (just a dutiful member), but you need to make a character (and fill out an application) before you join ^ -^

Woot I'm joining in a couple weeks! If I'm not back here on Sep. 1 then someone from this group needs to poke me till I join >:U

Would I be allowed to get an app check a couple days before the opening?

Sorry for the late reply!
You'll be able to have all month of September to get your application checked when you submit it, so have no worries~
