Character Design Contest ♯115- Ranger Danger

Ok, so this week sees the last of our Fantasy RPG classes contests, and we’re focusing on the Ranger class. For those of you unsure about this one, because it is  probably the least defined of all of the classes, the Ranger is a huntsman, usually skilled in ranged weaponry (normally archery, though guns have been known) and setting traps, rather than close quarters combat of Paladins or Rogues. So that’s what I want you guys to make. If you can create some interesting bow firing poses or inventive traps, you’re likely to do well here.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

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.

Geek Quiz ♯17: Anime

As promised, this weeks quiz is on everyones favourite Japanese export (tied possibly with their video games, but way ahead of Sushi). Now, considering how broad a topic this is (much like last week), I haven’t been able to come up with only 10 questions. However, I’m not going to do a two part quiz again, I’ve got a few other plans, so instead I’ve added 5 questions, so there’s 20 points between 15 questions and even then there’s a metric ton of anime’s I’ve missed out. Maybe at a later date we’ll do another quiz on this topic, depending on how people do on this one. Anyway, for next week’s quiz I’m gonna give you guys the choice. Would you rather have a quiz on the X-Men or Doctor Who? Leave your vote with your scores in the comments below.

As I said, this week it’s 15 questions with a total of 20 points to get. The answers will be below a jump from the post whilst on the main blog page, so if you don’t want to be spoiled, take a look at the questions on the blog first. And obviously Don’t Post Answers In The Comments.

Character Design Contest ♯114- On The Rogue Again

For our penultimate Fantasy RPG class, we’re going to be focusing on rogues. For anyone who doesn’t know what that entails, you’re basically looking at the sneaky characters. Thieves, assassins, ninjas are all fair game here, anyone who uses stealth and speed over raw power classifies. However, we’re not looking at people who would be best suited to laying traps or dealing long range damage, that’s for next week, you want to be as up close and personal, preferably without being noticed in the process. Bonus points go to anyone who can get onto the poll without me noticing. ;)

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

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.

Character Design Contest ♯113- Getting Clerical

So, last week we did a nice and offensive RPG class, so this week lets take a step back and take on more of a support role shall we.  This weeks contest will see you take on the role of the Cleric, the healer of the group and general man of faith. Now, this class isn’t as varied as the Mage or Fighter classes, but basically what you are looking for is a medic that heals using faith in some sort of god, so it doesn’t have to be a Monk or Priest per say, Witch-Doctors and the like also count. It’ll be interesting to see what participation is like on this one.
