Apparently, there is a special celebration coming up for you guys across the pond. So, I thought it might be a good time to do a contest that I'm surprised hasn't been done before (just a take a few minutes to let the irony of an Englishman giving you a fourth of july contest sink in).
This week I want you to design a character that represents one of the 50 states that make up America. Doesn't matter what you do, just so long as it is connected to a state in some way. I know a few people have done things along these lines already, so I know this should be good.
There is a limit on entries this week, but I doubt anyone will reach it. You can only do ONE ENTRY PER STATE PER PERSON, so you can only do each state once (so there's a limit of 50 entries, but I'm not expecting you to do them all).
It'd be nice to see every state represented. If we do I'll make a map using my favourites for each state at the end of the week. But anyway, good luck and have fun.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
