Skinchangers Updates, Contests, and More

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 20, 2016, 11:20 AM


Hello, all!

If you've been waiting on an update on the new human shapeshifter RP that my sister and I are working on, here it is!

My sister is a junior in high school and is therefore incredibly busy at the moment with school and homework.  I am a recent college graduate who is working full time, training my horse, and taking care of my fiancé, my two dogs, and my four cats.  Needless to say, that leaves me a little bit tired out by the end of the day!

We have the site up and running, and the layout is very close to being complete.  Our current goals include getting a header image, designing a color scheme, and getting all the necessary information typed up and ready to go!  I'd really like to have the site open by the end of November, but I'm not 100% sure about our ability to do all of the graphics/theme/other setup on our own.  So, there are a few contests we would like to announce to help with this!

IF YOU SHARE THIS JOURNAL, I WILL ENTER YOU INTO A DRAWING FOR A FULL PHOTOMANIPULATION FROM ME.



About the Game
Set in the fictional world of Eltair, humans have survived for many years in semi-nomadic tribes. These tribes have historically been composed of small family groups of hunters and gatherers. Now, the beginnings of civilization have come to Eltair, and these tribes are beginning to settle, building small, permanent villages as they begin to uncover the secrets of farming.

The inhabitants of Eltair are not mere humans, mind you: they are Skinchangers, gifted by the gods with the power to shift into animals. At their 18th birthday, every Eltairan visits a special shrine, set upon a mountain in the middle of a lake, where they commune with one of the three Great Gods. Each of the gods commands a segment of the animal kingdom - earth, water, and sky - and every Eltairan is drawn to one of the three. The Great Gods choose an appropriate animal Spirit to share the young Eltairan's body, and so a Skinchanger's power is granted.

A Skinchanger is blessed with the Spirit of an animal based on their personality and lifestyle. They can change into this animal at will, and may even experience some heightened senses in their human form based on their Spirit. In many cases, interactions with their fellow Skinchangers are influenced by the Spirits of those involved.

Skinchangers Banner Contest :: Ending Nov. 19, 2016 at 11:59 PM CST



What We Are Looking For
  • At least 2500px wide.
  • At least one human.
    • Reminder:  the humans in this RP are going to be a part of a society highly based on semi-nomadic, tribal culture.  I imagine them to be very similar to early Native Americans.
    • No nudity.
  • May have one or more animals or implied Spirits included but this should not be the primary focus.  We want it to be obvious that this is a human RP!
  • We're not really looking for anything super dark or macabre at the moment - we'd like to have something that we could build a fairly neutral, welcoming, perhaps slightly mysterious theme off of.
  • No derogatory work of any kind.
  • Otherwise, have fun and be creative!


Prizes
Note:  I will happily accept prize donations!

First Place:
  • $20 USD
  • (2) full photomanipulations by AstralPaint
  • Your image used as the banner on our site, with corresponding credits and links back to your Deviantart page

Second Place:
  • $10 USD
  • (1) full photomanipulation by AstralPaint
  • A mention and link back to your Deviantart page on our site

Third Place:
  • $5 USD
  • (1) simple photomanipulation (no background) by AstralPaint
  • A mention and link back to your Deviantart page on our site

Skinchangers Land Name Contest :: Ending Nov. 19, 2016 at 11:59 PM CST



What We Are Looking For
  • Creative names for some of the lands on our site.
  • No inappropriate language.


The Lands In Need
  • Tribeland #1
    • A well-hidden tribeland deep in the western deciduous forests of Eltair, Tribeland #1 is on a small peninsula along a shallow gulf.  Freshwater can be found in a single central spring.  Heavy foliage hides this tribeland from aerial threats.
  • Tribeland #2
    • Concealed in a valley in the mountains, Tribeland #2 is most easily accessed from the air.  Though surrounded by steep rock faces, this tribeland has abundant vegetation and multiple mountain springs.  Several caves offer shelter from the elements.
  • Tribeland #3
    • Situated in a small oasis along the eastern edge of the plains, Tribeland #3 is perhaps the most isolated.  Though tedious to reach by land due to the sheer size of the plains, many claim this oasis by the sea to be the most beautiful in all the land.
  • Unnamed Foothills
    • On the eastern side of the mountains that cut through the center of Eltair is a small range of foothills that blend into the plains.  This landscape is relatively easy to traverse and is home to several rivers descending from the nearby mountains.
  • Unnamed Plains
    • In the far east, a wide swath of plains has become one of many homes to nomads who are not content to settle in one of the tribelands.  Large prey animals, such as bison, make their home here in the tall grasses that always seem to be waving in the wind.
  • Unnamed Mountain Range
    • A short mountain range runs from north to south across the center of Eltair, separating the eastern plains from the western forests.  Though impressive, the sizes of these mountains are still dwarfed by the shrine mountain in the west.
  • Unnamed Gulf
    • Situated very close to Tribeland #1 in the west, this gulf is bordered on the west by deciduous forest and in the east by desert.  The waters here are always calm.
  • Unnamed Desert
    • Jokingly called the Desert of Doom, this desert is sparse and deadly.  It rarely rains until monsoon season, where flash flooding can quickly render some of the rockier ground lethal.  Hot and dry almost year-round, only the bravest even attempt to traverse this land, looking for an oasis rumored to hide within its depths.
  • Unnamed Pine Forest
    • To the north lies a thick pine forest.  Other vegetation is sparse due to hard ground and soil lacking nutrients.  Elk tend to migrate through this taiga at different parts of the year, and bears make it their home year-round.
  • Unnamed Shrine Mountain
    • Set in the middle of a vast lake, this mountain towers over everything else in Eltair.  A steep, narrow path winds all the way to the top, where three shrines (one to each of the gods) sit in wait.  It is said that this landmark embodies all three elements with its location in the lake, the sheer amount of earth in its mountain, and the proximity to the sky at its highest point.


Prizes
Note:  I will happily accept prize donations!

If We Choose Your Name(s):
  • (1) simple headshot (no background) by AstralPaint*
  • A mention and link back to your Deviantart page on our site


*Up to 3 per person.
