Razzle and Dazzle our Judges!
Contestants will apply for the Contest by registering a single Pokemon, six moves, and an item if applicable.
After the sign-up period has completed, the Contest Promoter will assign each competitor to a group of 3 or 4 individuals. A post order will be determined, and a single thread, wherein appeals will be hosted over the course of twice as many days as there are participants, will be created for each group. Each individual has 48 hours to post their performance, beyond which point a lack thereof will be interpreted as an absence and accorded a score of 0. Once the first round is completed, the top-scoring competitors will then enter one final thread to compete with one another for a final evaluation.
There will be no minimum word count enforced; contestants may use their best judgement to determine when enough is enough. It should be noted that each contestant is obligated to read all posts prior to theirs, as each player will be able to attempt preemptively stunning the appeal of the rest. Because each contestant will have knowledge of the other’s chosen Pokemon (but not moveset), exploiting a Rain Dance to hinder the performance of a Charizard is acceptable.
Performances occuring after such attempts will be able to use that interference to amplify their own appeal, turning a potential upset into a bonus point; because the first performer of each round cannot be impeded, they will not have the opportunity to earn bonuses for overcoming an attack. Performances will be graded on the spelling, flow, coherence and conceptualization of the appeal, to be awarded a score of up to 10 per judge.
Scores will be written on a 1-10 rating, with each judge measuring the contestant’s grammar as well as the appeal itself to determine their score. Performers may be hindered or rendered ineligible to perform by the appeals of their predecessors; likewise, they may build off the previous appeals in order to escalate their own performance. In the event of a competitor overcoming an attempt to stun their appeal, they will be awarded a bonus point; this is not to be given by the judges, but applied after judge scoring by the event’s host.
Judges may be staff members, player characters recruited to the task, or a mix of both; the judges will be asked for a concise summary of each performance at the completion of each round, at which point total scores will be tallied in a single post. For their charitable service as jury members, players will be compensated for their efforts with five rare candy.
All judges are expected to act impartially; there will be no favoritism or grudge-holding during the proceedings. Providing a biased score, electing not to provide a score, or otherwise failing to score an appeal will preclude the judge from receiving their compensation, as well as prevent participation in future events.
