xx Role Playing Contest Interest?
« Thread started on: Jan 12th, 2018, 7:16pm »

Ok...So let's say hypothetically I was to revive an activity I did on a former Kaa site I made a long time ago and host a role playing contest of sorts here on KainaKaa... Would anyone be interested in participating in such an event? Now before you say either way, you should probably know that I don't have all the details on how this is going to work or IF I'm even going to do this... I will need to consider several different things and gauge the interest levels before I say this is a official event. However, if you are interested, this is kind of what I'm thinking...

So several years back for those that were active in the community at the time...(I know those are few and far in between) I held a contest where writers attempted to create and write the most unique Kaa role play they possibly could. Contestants had about three to four months to work on their projects and after that time had passed, their works were put up for voting by the community. The community voted on the story they thought was the best as well as who the best role players were and in the end, prizes were awarded accordingly. Though...what those were at the time escapes me today... In any case, the contest mostly centered around two writers working together to create a story with the aim of doing something better than the other contestants. You know...basic contest stuff.

If I were to have this event today, it would operate in a manner similar to what I had done back then. I'd basically have two people get together and work on a story to try and outdo other contestants. However, should this event take place, there will be some changes today from back then.

For starters, while the contest mostly required writers to create stories centered around Kaa encounters back in the day, this is something I'd actually forbid...in a sense. I wouldn't dismiss snake and victim encounters, but I MAY require that the role plays that people work on include something a bit more original...

While I realize a great deal of us come here because of Kaa, it is the hypnosis interest that ties us here at our core. I would very much love for this contest to reflect that by people working on things that revolve around hypnosis as opposed to a Kaa encounter.

So for the contest, Kaa's character as well as Mowgli, Shanti, and other characters belonging to Disney or otherwise would be off limits. I'd simply require that whatever your scenario be, the snake and the victim be totally original and follow an original story. Doesn't mean you can't use elements from classic encounters, but original characters would be a must.

The second thing I'd change is that the content in this contest would be a lot more open ended. You wouldn't be limited to JUST doing a snake and victim story. I would make a rule that so long as your story involves hypnosis in some way, do whatever you'd like. Want to write about a Naga/Lamia instead of a hypnotic python? Be my guest! Create something where a vampire travels abroad and mesmerizes helpless victims to drink of their blood? Go for it! Interested in writing about a supernatural spirit/being that uses hypnosis to enslave others into a cult? Have at it!

The point is, with this contest, I would restrict the use of established characters and encourage more originality. We all love our snake encounters, I get it. I do them so consistently that it's pretty much all I do, so I get it... This would open up a chance to really be original and have a lot of fun doing it in the process!

So...that would be all the content changes I'd include...at least for now. I STILL have some kinks that I need to work out in the system, but that's a start I suppose. Next thing I'd probably change would be how the winning story is chosen. I may change it from a forum wide vote to a three judge panel that will rate the stories you guys do and declare winners accordingly. Who these judges are, again is up in the air like anything else.

Finally, I would be interested in awarding prizes to the people that established the best stories as incentive for joining in. As for what those prizes would be...I am again at a loss... If someone wanted to donate their talents to the cause, I'd be very open to that. Fact is, I don't have much of value that would constitute as a prize for the victors. So if you wanted to offer up your talents to do something for the victors, I wouldn't be opposed to that...

As you can see, all I have is just the idea for a role playing contest with many of the different traits still in need of tweaking. If you guys are interested in this activity, I would be willing to sanction it as an official event. However, I need to know that the interest is here before I dedicate my time and energy to this project. Also, should you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see in this contest, or want to volunteer to help out, anything you guys wanted to contribute would be welcomed!

This is something really big I'd like to do for this community, so I would be more than happy to make it a big community event. Providing the interest is there and I can get the necessary help, I would love to host another role playing contest. Considering it has been almost a decade...give or take(?) since the last one, this would be something really neat to bring to this place and beyond!

If you are interested in participating, please feel free to post your opinions down below! If you'd like to work as a judge, or contribute your talent for prizes, also let me know here in the thread! However, if this is something you aren't interested in or want to contribute to, let me know. I would like to gauge your thoughts on this subject before I personally make up my mind.

So there it is! Whatever you guys think, I'd love to hear your feedback! I hope that this idea can spark something big that we can do as a whole in this community! Thanks for reading! <3

This sounds like a really neat idea! I'm not sure if I'd be able to participate, but artwork of a scene from the RP sounds like an amazing prize if someone's able to do that.

Seems like there is a little bit of interest regarding a role playing contest which tells me you guys are into it. I'm fine with the prize for the best role play being a scene drawn out from your stories. I couldn't guarantee that though unless someone wanted to offer up their talents as an artist. If there were no donations, maybe we could arrange some kind of small entrance fee to pay for an artist via paypal or something to get this done... Not saying we WILL do that or that it is some sort of official thing. If we could get something arranged with an artist, I don't see why that couldn't be the prize.

As far as I'm thinking right now, to keep this contest as simple as possible, I will probably follow through on something that whatever work you guys do has to be done here on the site. I wouldn't care if you guys wanted to bring in others from different places to work here only for this event. To keep this though as simple as possible for me and anyone else who might be looking into organizing and keeping up with this event, I'd simply ask that you guys do your work here on this site.

This move isn't one aimed to restrict anyone, or anything. If I do this event though, I need it to flow as smoothly as possible... I don't want to wander to a bunch of different websites to keep up with everyone's story. I'll most likely request that the event be kept in one central location, most likely here on this site.

Now keep in mind that while the interest may be here, there is a LOT we are going to have to do to get this thing off of he ground. I'm not going to hold this thing for just 4 people. I will still need to find an artist willing to work drawing a picture or two for the winners, and I still have to devise a way in which contest entries are judged. There is a great deal I still have to figure out, but because the interest is there, I'm willing to start planning this a bit more seriously. I would though appreciate any feedback, suggestions, donations of talent or otherwise to this cause.

I've been wanting to do something big for the community for quite a while now, and like I said, I'd love for this to be something we could all work on. This contest isn't just something for me, but for all of us as a whole. I'm going to need everyone's help if this is to get off of the ground and become a real, feasible event.

Alright guys, I was able to recruit an old member from the site to provide the artwork as a donation. He seems pretty enthusiastic about it actually, since hes offered a colored artwork and Uncolored artwork for the prizes, as well as offering to provide us with a poster/flier design to advertise across the site. You might remember this member: Amicus. Hes the one that made Kanas profile pic.

Ooooh, a contest sounds super fun~

Here's my two cents on everything!

Perhaps instead of a panel of three judges, you up it to 5. I don't know why, but 5 just seems like a nicer number than 3. That also means more minds and more eyes to critique and judge, so it would be a bit more fair. On that note as well, maybe have two categories for judging - community favorite(s) and judge's favorite(s). Have two different kinds of rankings/judging/voting sessions going on so that everybody gets to join in.

You could have different kinds of categories for people to vote on, too. Some ideas might be...
- Most words written in the time allotted
- Most total posts (but maybe set some sort of limit to what constitutes a post, i.e. at least one full paragraph)
- Most original character
- Most original plot
- Most suspenseful

As for prizes... (actually I might just PM you with these ideas... sorry, interested parties laugh )

All in all, I'm all for the idea~!

One possible suggestion: if all entry RPs need to be posted on this site, the subject line could include an identifier like "RP Contest: [Title of Choice Here]".

Assuming all entries will be linked on the main contest post, it's not strictly necessary, but it would make them easier to search/spot in the RP boards and could help spread awareness of the contest as it's going on.

I would just keep in mind that more judges = more time. I'd be fine with three judges, and in fact it may depend on how many volunteers we get for judging the RPs. You did give me an idea about this, though:

Presumably judges can't review a RP they've worked on, because bias, so what if we tried to get about five (or more?) judges and had three reviewers per RP? That way judges don't need to abstain from also participating in the event, if they so choose.

I think categories is a neat idea! Those first two suggestions are entirely objective, though, and I think word count would be hard to gauge without copy/pasting every single post into a word document or something (and making sure no signatures or other text came over). Given the theme of this website, I think "Most hypnotic" (however each person cares to judge that) would be a fun category. I'm guessing you have prize ideas to help cover the winners of each category, since so far we've just got one confirmed artist offering two pieces (thanks, Thebigsqueeze and Amicus!).

I think instead of winners of each category, the categories should be used as ways to judge each rp. The higher the total points accumulated across each of the subjects, the higher on the leaderboards. That way there can be a first place and second place. For example...
Scores in each category:
10
9
7
10
6
Total: 42 points.
If someone got a higher score, theyd be further up and be more likely to win.

This way there can be two winners instead of five and we can conserve resources by using the two prizes Amicus is providing.

I'd be happy to provide a third prize my art isn't as good and I need the practice anyway.

But that's only if you wish to have a third prize.
