Only you can decide how this conflict will end. The time has come to take up arms and fight for your aerie!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
To participate, simply complete one or more of the challenge images listed below. Images are divided into two categories, each worth a different number of points. At the end of the event, we will tally the points--and the aerie with the most points wins!
**PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR PIECES ON OR BEFORE FEBRUARY 28. LATE ARTWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.** Gryphons of any rank may participate in this event, but if you are a young gryph, keep your physical limitations in mind.
- Propaganda poster - 1 point. Drum up support for the cause by making a propaganda poster for your aerie. Do some research! Check out posters from WWII and the Cold War for inspiration. Mod note: please stay far away from Nazi imagery.
- Narrative image - 2 points. Detailed image of your character participating in the war effort. Images should include a full background and at least two other gryphons (or humans, if applicable). Narrative image prompts are as follows:
- ALL AERIES: Show your character involved in a battle with two other gryphons. SKREKRILL: Grandesque soldiers are attacking a strategic Skrekrill post on top of a high, rocky cliff. Defend it! Skrekrill is short on doctors! Kidnap a Twistoult shaman to care for your wounded fellows. GRANDESQUE: You have been chosen as part of Queen Titania's personal security detail! Show yourself stopping an assassination attempt, or leading the Queen through dangerous territory. Maud and a few of his human-gryph cronies have gotten their hands on some guns, but they have no idea how to use them. Stop them before they figure it out! TWISTOULT: Sneak into the Skrekrill camp and perform an act of sabotage. It's up to you whether it works or not! Show your gryph delivering supplies to the battlefront or helping the wounded. Completing one of the narrative challenges also allows you to skip one regular rank challenge. Additional narrative challenges will not count towards rank challenges, but will count for event points. If you have multiple characters, you must complete a separate narrative challenge for each one if you want them to skip a rank challenge. Handling Multiple Characters If you draw two of your characters from the same aerie in one narrative challenge, the points only count once. In the unlikely event that your image completes a narrative challenge for two characters in two separate aeries at the same time, you must specify which aerie you want the points to go to.
TO THE WINNERS GO THE SPOILS
The members of the winning aerie who participate in this event will get to advance to the next rank. ONLY CHARACTERS WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENT WILL GET TO ADVANCE. That means that if you have multiple characters, you must make an image for EACH ONE in order to make them eligible to advance at the end.
The outcome of this war will influence upcoming Windsonde events, and shape the future of Windsonde itself.
