The contrast between wise eyes and floppy lips is just humorous.

I suppose, "elongated limps," could actually be correct too, do they just have a funny gait?...
At first, I was just going to throw our AI overlords (base description generated by Chat GPT) under the bus and blame them. But, upon careful explanation, it looks like that was changed from limbs to limps along one of our edits. Looks like savoylen corrected that this morning.

However.... 'elongated lips' DOES have a certain alien appeal to it.. maybe we should take a vote?

That, or everyone is waiting till the last minute to ask.

In any case, we have enough apps posted, (albeit in a WIP status) to run a bracket. That is a good sign this early on.

Once apps are made public, we will have something like Fu's Bar open, for competitors and anyone else that would like a free-form roleplay between rounds. It will be something like a Holodeck in Star Trek.
Oh, definitely the third option of waiting to for the last minute here, lol.

I consider mine semi-done though. As in I like keeping the option to edit open - but and if the buzzer sounds I'll stick by it and I can't think of anything else to do with it. And I'm still willing to jump the table if needed, but seems alright so far.

Just about a week left to get those applications in, and updated!


Looking through the applications, I haven't seen any mechanical issues that need to be addressed, but if you have your entry where you think it is ready to go, and are ready to have it reviewed, please let me know.

I definitely haven't thought of anything to do to it beyond spelling and grammer fixes for a while now. I can call mine ready for review I think.

I finally wrote out the character write-up and immediately had to cut down its word count by 50% after I was finished.

Anyways, I think it's ready for review after that.

My character is ready too, I think. I'm not certain I'll be able to keep up with the posting rate, but I like the character concept, so I want to at least try!

Awesome! I'm in some pretty heavy work travel still at the moment (have been most of this week), but I'll go over everything in detail tomorrow. Just about 26 hours left to get any apps in, or updates made!

I couldn't find the answer in the materials (on a brief skim), but was there going to be a judge rating in round 0 this year?

probably not. With the number of applications we have, Iím go to have everyone the completed round zero participate in round one.

I'd still like to hear comments and critique, myself.
