O2CXt3 lands with a great WHOOF! in an enormous pile of clothing. 97mg is not quite so lucky, and lands on a large display of perfumes-- perfumes which have long since expired, and no longer smell anything like what you want to smell. The two of them dig themselves out, and look around. They are in a strange kind of department store, though it has seen much better days. Or years. Far away the pair can see an exit, which seems to be a long hallway with other shops along the sides. All lights are out, and there is a deathly quiet in the place.

"Looking for something?" The voice is right behind the two challengers, who whip around to see the 'Honorable' Chairman. Though he is currently shorter than both of you, you get a sense of immense power from him. "I see you've already been trying things on," he says, picking up a loose sock from on O2CXt3's shoulder. "Best be careful, though-- spend too much time in here, and you might become part of the scenery..." The challengers look about, and see that three of the mannequins wearing clothing are actually people, watching your every move!

The judges for this round are:
  • Unko Talok
  • Admin RonarsCorruption
  • savoylen
The Chairman speaks again, "An adventure's tone and feeling can be entirely changed by how you dress it up," he says. "Fantasy can become space-age, and visa-versa, with a skilled GM. But dressing things up poorly can ruin an entire campaign. The structure of a good adventure will almost always come through, but excellent adventures have both a good structure AND skillful presentation. Look around you, and see what is useful..." The Challengers begin scouring about for the best things to construct their adventure...

The ingredients for this round are:
  • A Very Disappointed Den Mother
  • Attaining Singularity
  • The Blackness Behind Your Eyelids
  • An Elemental Monolith
  • A Razor

Let the Game Mastering....BEGIN!!
Rules
  • You are to write an adventure using the five items / concepts above. All rules found here are to be followed.
  • The guidelines for the Judges' scoring can be found here. An "encounter" is specifically referencing a single battle, confrontation, or other situation for a group of PCs to come up against, and (hopefully) overcome. It should be something that can be a special, unique, focal point of a campaign.
  • The entry is to be no longer than 2000 words, which includes *everything* you put into the post. Judges are instructed to stop reading at that time, or to deduct points if you go over. The use of a spell check and word counter is highly recommended.
  • Please make a simple post in this thread when you first read it, to let the judges know have seen it, and that you are on board. It doesn't have to be anything more than "read!", or something like that, though roleplaying it is also perfectly acceptable! Do not edit this post after making it; when it comes time to post your entry, do that in a second, separate post.
  • You have 7 days from the time this post is made to complete and submit your entry (in a new post; don't edit your first post!). It is not expected that you use all this time - the extra time has been given to ensure that, no matter what your timezone, your schedule, your sleep habits, your work or student life, or emergencies that could crop up, you should have ample time to complete your entry. Posting when you are done, and not waiting until the end, is also recommended, and rewarded.
  • You should post your entry into this thread within the generous timeframe, and ensure it is secreted (to the above judges) and spoilerbuttoned. Feel free to also PM your judges to let them know you have posted, if you wish. (DO NOT PM them your entry - just let them know your entry is submitted). If your post is not made within the 7 days, you will be automatically disqualified. If you have issues, be sure to PM Inem *before* your round is closed.
  • Once posted, do not edit your entry. The use of the "preview" function is thus also highly recommended.

The novice scratches his head as he examines the ingredients. Oh dear...

O2CXt3 could no doubt smell 97mg approaching, and although their aromas were quite different, they did indeed having something in common. 97mg was a novice too, and his expression at the revealing of the ingredients was rather pale and shaky. He raised a hand to his fellow competitor (and hopefully a future friend too).

"Win or lose, I am humbled to be doing this with you! Can't wait to see what you cook!"

The Teacher approaches. You see her from quite far away, given the large size and deterioration of the department store. She seems to be theatrically taking her time, which causes a strange combination of annoyance and dread. Finally, she reaches your location, and the Mannequin judges gesture towards what you've created. "Let's see what you've created, then..." She begins snooping over the results, looking at them from all angles, and looking askance more often than directly.

After a few moments, she speaks. "A narrow battle. And done with... less than ideal weapons, I must say. You should both be quite proud. But however well you've both done, one must move forward, and the other must be released. 97mg-- today, you are released from this place. O2CXt3 shall continue onward."

She nods her head. "First time I've been responsible for a match transition. I've gotta say it's a lot of pressure! But if you'll come with me..." But suddenly, the world is a giant flash of noise and light, and all goes silent.
