THIS year's theme and objectives:
Round One: Create an all-new Super Hero OR Villan or Video Game Character - these should be unique, never-before-seen characters unlike any already out there. What powers or abilities does your character have? You should create a complete character profile of 500-1,000 words.
Round Two: You will create a whole new world for your character. It can be anywhere BUT Earth's LAND. It can be somewhere in space, somewhere in the depths of one of the oceans, or someplace of your own creation! You have 500 - 2,000 words for this challenge.
Round Three: You will introduce your character to their homeland. Let us see and experience it from THEIR viewpoint. Do they like their world or are they at odds with it? Tell about other inhabitants and their interactions with your character. You have 500 - 1,000 words for this round.
Round Four: Your newly created world is threatened by a natural disaster of epic proportions. What will your character do? Will they save the day? Will they profit somehow if the world does get destroyed? Make your character rise and shine, for better or worse. You have 1,000 - 2,000 words for this final round.
