| Well, the Plague has taken yet another Gold Weyrling pair from us, and though Red River is the Bastard Weyr, the other Weyrs have taken pity and decided to send us a new Queenpair. They will have graduated Weyrling training, but they have not yet Risen in their maiden Flight (so she will be due to Rise very soon after her arrival!)|
Here's where you will come in: We're holding a contest to see who will get to play Red River's newest Queenpair. Your task will be to write up a profile sheet for the rider and her Gold. In addition to the standard details, you will need to include the Weyr she is transferring from, the names of the dragons which produced the Queen (You can find the possible parents in the Who's Who thread in Information), the reason she was chosen to go (is she a responsible, level-headed girl who they thought would be a help to Red River in our time of need? Is she a troublesome woman the Weyrleaders are tired of dealing with and have decided to send her to us to get her out of their hair?) You will also need to write up a first post for judging, in which the pair arrive at the Weyr, which should be four to five paragraphs long at least.
These characters will be judged based on attention to detail and quality of writing (including spelling and grammar). If you already have one clutching female (Gold or Rosegold) or if you have two rankers/specials (Bronze, Rosegold, Pewter), you will not be considered eligible for this competition.
Now for your deadline. Starting today, you will have three weeks to write up the profiles of both the rider and her Queen. On the tenth of September, we will close the contest and take one week to look over the sheets and make our decisions, which will be announced on the 17th. After that, the winning profile can be posted in characters and moved to the appropriate forum, and play can begin. It will probably be a little over one IRL month before the Queen can Rise, due to the current hatching rotation schedule.
Submission procedure is the same as usual: you will submit a COMPLETED profile sheet for both rider and dragon (NO WIP'S WILL BE ACCEPTED) in a PM to all four staff members (Myself, Red, Chey, and Lith) BEFORE the deadline is up. We want to see your VERY BEST WORK, so make sure you write full paragraphs with complete, dynamic sentences. We want these girls to come to life in our heads, so please, PLEASE make this extremely difficult for us! It's why we're taking a week to decide on a winner!
