May The Fourth Be With You Contest

Post by The Cheshire Cat on 5/4/2016, 5:10 am





Grab your lightsabers, young padawans!


In Honor of National Star Wars day, two contests are being held! The first one is an art contest: you may draw/design a picture of your characters dressed up in attire from the Star Wars universe. Be it Princess Lea in her white long dress, The Jedi or Sith in their robes or even a Storm Trooper. You can have a max of TWO people in ONE drawing. Only one drawing can be submitted to the admins and the entries will be open until one and a half weeks from now, so until the Saturday 14th of May. Once the time table closes the pictures will be set up to be voted on as will the writings. You can either draw a picture or choose ONE of the prompts from below, for the second contest which is a writing contest. When your done PM the picture or writing to Morgan Landry as a submission.


1. One of your characters is in the battle of Genosia in the arena right before the Jedi come in and save the day. Write about their experience chained to the rock pillars along with Anakin, Obi-Wan and Amadala.
2. Your character wakes up in a Hutt prison to be sold into slavery at the next cartel meeting. Write up a flashback story about why your character is here.
3. You are a Jedi padawan/sith acolyte. Write about how your character trains either with their master as a padawan or in the haunted and monster infested tombs as an acolyte.
4. Write about the very first time your character discovered they could use the Force and continue that writing up until either their master finds them for padawan training or their parents send them off to become and acolyte.


Padawan, Padawan learner, Jedi Apprentice in Basic, or Jedi in Training, referred to a Force-sensitive adolescent who had begun one-on-one instruction with a Jedi Knight or Master outside of the Jedi academy. Having passed the Initiate Trials and ascended in rank from an Initiate, Padawans were given more responsibilities within the Jedi Order but were subject to the demands of their masters. Padawan training was done alongside their master and the Padawan accompanied their master on most missions. Before being assigned to a master all training was done at the academy where they lived and studies. A Lightsaber was not given to an apprentice but rather earned and constructed through use of the force when the master saw it to be time. From there training continued until the Padawan became the Master.

Sith Acolyte was a rank within the Sith Order prior to Darth Bane's reformation. The term was used to refer to Force-sensitive apprentices who had only just started on the dark path under the tutelage of a more experienced Sith Lord. Acolytes are trained on the desert planet of Korriban in the gutter rim territory and their training is first oversees by a Sith Overseer for trials and tests often passed down by a Sith Lord. The Acolytes fight, kill and complete missions to try and become the apprentice to one Sith lord or Darth lord. From their the Lord/Darth will send their apprentice on assignments that they deem necessary until they eventually gain a ship, and become a Darth or Lord of the Sith themselves. Lightsabers were either given as given as gifts after the Lord/Darth saw their apprentice completed a task that proved they were worthy or the apprentice gained one on his/her travels through the galaxy.

The Hutt Cartelís prime location is on a planet called Nal Hutta and where the Supreme Hutt typically resides. The Hutts are the back alley dealers of the galaxy and husker mercenaries, bounty hunters as well as assassins to do their bidding. They sell aliens into slavery and the members of the Hutt Cartel will often keep a number of slaves for pleasurable company or display when out in the main room of the building where they would dance and entertain the Hutt.


1st place: 5000 Drachma
2nd place: 2500 Drachma
3rd place: 1000 Drachma
Disqualified entries: 0
All Other Entries: 50 Drachma

PLEASE NOTE! IF you make any note of the character being yours, the fact that you sent in the submissions being voted on your entry will be pulled and you will not receive any prize drachma. Also, don't announce what you're participating in. The whole point is to make it anonymous. Feel free to post questions you have regarding it thought.

Yes there is a day and you can't tell people what your doing really. This is fine but for the future its supposed to be as anonymous as possible, so much so that the admins are only supposed to know because they set up the voting thing

I kinda looked it up and it is not a recognized holiday

Still participating because that 5000 drachmas make me drool. And according to the rusty information I knew from the time I was a Star Wars fan, a Padawan joins and enter the Academy. Then they proceed to Initiate and came into apprenticeship. Their next rank would be Knight, at which they already possessed a lightsaber and then they have classes: Sentinel, Guardian and I think something related to knowledge. Finally, under the acceptance of the High Council of the Order, the Knight earns the title Master and takes over 2 apprentices should they wish (according to the code issued by Luke Skywalker after the Galactic Civil War). So it's not jumping from Padawan to Master.

(and Morgan is Landry not Laundry xD)

Khan I only wrote the generalized rules for the Jedi and Sith, same goes for the Hutt Cartel. Writing the details out for the entirety of the Jedi code as well as culture would take an entire thousand words at minimum.

Now please, with the utmost respect, stop posting here unless there is a question. It makes the topic a jumble and harder for people with questions to see what has already been asked.

Yes.

BUT! For the writings you can use one canon character from the series with the exception of the first prompt where three others were mentioned.
