Good Afternoon, and Welcome Back to the Competition

No, I'm afraid it hasn't started yet, but the good news is is will start.
First things first. There will be a restart, so that means everything you've done so far will be undone. The start of the Comp should go along the same lines as the old one.
I'm also going to delete this blog and make a new one, because at the moment this blog serves no purpose besides reminiscing.
I'm also going to get many of the new people on the blog, because too many off the old people dropped out.
Also, I'm waiting until The Hunger Games Competition finished, because having both at once is overkill
So it may be a few months until this starts again, but it will, and it will be better, so be prepared

No, I have not read the entries yet.
I want to, but every time I even think about the competition I get really angry and depressed. So I just can't.
6 people left, if my memory's right.
I planned for at least ten at this point. At the very least. But I was thinking around 15.
That's over double...
I have no plans left. It's two challenges in, I haven't even eliminated anyone yet, and we've got 6 people.
Some people, like Thrust and Emerald, gavae me good reasons why they backed out. Most did not.
Why enter, if not going to compete? Val and Zaf said they probably wouldn't. Most did not.
There isn't even enough people for teams...
I tried. I really did. I planned for a long time, and really thought about it. I have no ideas left that are any good.
I did plan for six people at one point, before any of you say it. But other things were going to happen first.
I've got six people left.
I'm not giving up. I'm just trying to wait until I can think normally when I read the entries, read them, and try and think of something. But at the moment, I can't...

Challenge Two

"Congratulations. Most of you survived the forest. I am impressed. Of course, if so many of you survived, things must not be hard enough. From here on in, the animals still in the forest have gone mad, and will kill anything that enters there territory. Only the animals who left the forest stay normal.
"Challenge Two shall not be in the forest, I think. No."

The person points North West to a mountain range. It has no trees on it, it just looks like rock.
"You must get to the top of that mountain. It's four times as big as this one. It's a two day journey to get up at least, so I would recommend finding shelter that night. A few animals might find you otherwise. On the mountain is an amount of coloured cards. Some are red. Some are blue. Find one and bring it to the top with you. If you bring more then one card, or do not bring any cards, you have failed. The mountain is dangerous. There is no path of climb on, you must scale it. At night, birds that use it for laying their eggs will go out and hunt. If they find you, they will attack you."
The person smiles.
"Some of you may be wondering about the envelopes you hold in your hands. Make it to the top of the mountain, and you shall see what's in them.
"Good luck."

Miss Cain, welcome to The Competition.
Entries must be in by Wednesday, my time. Alliance writing is allowed this time, but there are no teams yet. Remember the rules, have some good writing, and you'll do fine.

The Competition is closed for the moment

For personal reasons, I'm taking a break, and the competition will be frozen. In a few weeks, I'll be back, and it'll be continued, but for now, it will not go forward.

End of Challenge One

So ends challenge one, with disappointing results. Eleven people made it to challenge two. Sparky, Mist, Star, Flame, Eve, Adrasdos, Emerald, Fire, Girl of Many Names, Kallistra, Selena and new competitor, Lavender made it in. I’ll discuss your entries in a minute. Valkyrie V. Cain, Luciana, Red Waterfall, That Lakinson Guy and Zafira, your time ends here. You did not give me your entries, and you will be eliminated. Pack your bags, leave and don’t darken this doorstep again. None of you even went to the trouble of emailing me and telling me you couldn’t be in the comp, like Thrust did. None of you will be coming back to the Competition, unless there is no one else available, and I need people. I’m disappointed.
To the rest of you, congratulations, you made it. Many of your entries were brilliant, and enjoyable to read. But there are a few things needed to be cleared up.
There are no magical abilities, no matter how small. Lavender, by navigation I thought you meant looking at the son, by the east and west thing, or looking the moss on rocks. Not feeling your way by magic. So, no more of that. Star, you cannot have Ink blood. In this, you are not people who were once magical; you are not your characters. You are you. Girl of Many Names, where do I begin? You had yourself defeating animals with punches. You knocked a bear around with two punches, and sent a wolf flying with one. You also had another competitor in your writing. You broke the rules, so this is your one and only warning. Do it again, and you may go up for elimination.
Emerald, no more compass. I gave you no compass. If I do at one point, that’ll be a good tool, especially in team challenges. Fire, no hot chocolate. Flame, I’ll actually let the buttons thing go down, because it made me laugh. Kal, your obsession with the one also made me laugh, but no, I did not snort out my drink. Gotta work harder than that. Mist, you Coward. Good work. Eve… Yo. Adrasdos, sorry about the dress. I won’t pay for it. Sparky, you stink. Good work. Selena, the tree will eventually move. I’d try running into it head first… yeah, that’ll help.
Girl of Many Names, yours was the worst. I would pick up your act. The winner of challenge one is Sparky, and the second by a hair is Mist. Sparky, you have won a prise. A rock, which can be a useful tool and weapon. The rock is the size of your fist. Mist, you have won a stick. The stick is as thick as your index finger and middle finger together, and is as long as from your elbow to wrist.
But we seem to be down a few people. For number reasons, I need one more person. Leave your email in this comment section, even if you’ve put your email in another post. Octa and Miss seem to be willing. But I only need one. So, one of you won’t get in. You’ll need to be able to give me an entry a lot, so you’ll need to be on a fair bit. I will not. If you can’t get on enough, I wouldn’t recommend trying out.
Oh, and something I forgot to mention before. I might email a small thing back to you sometimes, a reply to your challenge. Something that I don’t want everyone to know. I won’t do it all the time, but sometimes.
Challenge 2 shall be on Sunday. Be ready

Wednesday, 11 July 2012


I did say Thursday Australian time. That's a day earlier then for most of you. In two hours from when I post this, actually. But I think I'll wait until I wake up. When I do, there better be all 16 entries. A warning, anyone who doesn't give me their entry should prepare to be straight out

Challenge One

You walk towards the other competitors. There are about fifteen others there, all waiting. No, there is another. You cannot describe him, he just is. You know that this is his place, he rules it. He smiles has you join the others, and begins talking.
"Welcome. As you may have guessed, this is The Competition. Sixteen of you are here. Only one of you will win. This all begins with the first challenge.
"You are in the woods. A camp ground, more precisely, surrounded by woods. If you go North-East, you will find a big hill, what some call a small mountain. At the top of this hill, is sixteen envelopes. One for each of you. Your challenge is to get to the envelopes. You do not have to get back here. I will be up there, waiting for you. But be careful. These woods are filled with dangerous creatures, and you are bound to find some on your way here. Good luck."

Remember, the aim isn't to finish first, it's to be the best. Try not to go on though, it may bore me. There is no word limit, but if you make it too long, I'll get bored of it. Oh, and you must finish the challenge. Remember, anything you do to your character is permanent until I say it's not, like an injury or something. Oh, and you must meet at least three animals, and fight at least one. You have no weapons, so this should be interesting. You cannot find any weapons on the ground, like a rock or anything. You have to use your bare hands. Animals have to be those which you would find in normal woods, like wolves, bears, deer, rabbits, e.c.t.
You must email me your entry by Thursday. There are no teams yet. You are not allowed to do alliance writing for this challenge, this is individual writing. Any questions, feel free to email me. Thrust is not in The Competition, if anyone wants to know why I only had sixteen people.
Let the first challenge begin!
PS: I won't be around for the next few days, so any questions must be asked today, and if you have a question after that, take your best guess, but make sure to put in brackets you weren't sure, and email me that you weren't sure
