NEW BEGINNINGS THREAD CONTEST
The ‘New Beginnings’ contest will run from April 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021 and focus on characters who have never threaded together, even though they exist in the same clan, tribe, or outsider territory as rogues. This means the characters must be in the same clan/tribe and not have a finished thread on the site with one another. We also want to encourage members to reach out and plot with someone they have not plotted with before as well. This is a great opportunity for our older members to plot with our newer ones
Characters who have interacted briefly (ie. being in the same thread but having minimal interaction) via a Gathering, clan meeting, or patrol can be entered into the contest since the focus is on developing new and/or deeper relationships.
For example, both Mintnose and Blazingstorm have been on a battle patrol together. However, they interacted very briefly and do not have a developed relationship because they have never threaded one on one to flesh it out.
Since we want to focus on forging new relationships between old and new characters alike, thread ideas can be incredibly broad. The thread can act as the start of an unlikely friendship, rivalry, or romance! For extra fun, members can select two random cats, start the thread, and let the wind take them! As little plotting as possible is doubly encouraged to create an unexpected dynamic or surprising outcome!Rules
Members can also use the current clan/tribe/rogue plots as a springboard for a thread idea! It’s also a great opportunity to have character discuss inner-clan politics or conflicts. The even more mundane concept the better! Take the ordinary and turn it extraordinary!

6. Threads must contain [contest], or a variation, in the title.
7. When a thread is finished, please let a staff member know in the #maintenance-requests channel on the discord, and make sure to include a one sentence summary of the thread, so we can easily list it in the final voting thread.
Staff will collect finished contest threads and announce them in a final contest announcement. From June 1, 2021 to June 11, 2021, members will vote on which thread best embodied the theme of the contest. If there are ties, we will continue to vote down until there is a clear winner.
The winners of the thread contest will receive the following prizes:
- A custom litter roll (members pick litter size, genders of kits, and pelt colors in reason)
- A choice between a rare trait OR an extra character slot
- Art from volunteering artists
- A limited edition contest award
All participants will receive a contest award as well.
If you have any questions or want to volunteer art as an award, please reach out to a staff member on the forum or discord.
