Round One Entries!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 16, 2008, 12:11 PM
ROUND ONE IS DONE.

And was it ever a mad scramble at the end. Congratulations to all the people who managed to get their entries in on time! It takes a lot of dedication and determination to throw together something in three weeks and work around the deadline, while juggling all the more important  things such as jobs, school, and so on.

You guys should be really proud of yourselves!

The results were pretty good! We only had four forfits! This means that Bilious,TheToshihiko&ginchael, Mr-Tea-and-Crumpets and QueenGwenevere are moving onto the next round for sure.

As for the rest...

Now comes the time for all you hard working pirates to sit back and relax while your judges take to reading each comic and casting their votes.

Without further delay, lets see what you've all come out with!

VS
Debt is a troublesome thing, One would imagine that a doctor handpicked by Lady Genesis would fetch quite the hefty ransom, might solve all your problems

VS
The life of a vagrant does not really allow for much variety of diet. For those craving a little variety, rumor has it that a crate of expensive imported fruits have arrived aboard Genesis's ship. These are the bananas of the gods, the pomegranates of kings. Naturally she probably has set someone to the task of guarding it,but they be mighty fine tasting treats indeed...(And they'll prevent scurvy, too!)

Monkey fur is irritating to import, but makes quite the exciting addition to any ladies wardrobe. .. It just so happens one of the visiting ships from another continent have docked here…and with them is a lad and his monkey. Such a monkey might also be useful to borrow for the Marauder, which has many mechanical parts that are hard to reach…

VS
Larry, a policeman in clockwork city has been given a key that both Arruk and Silas have shown an unusual interest in… It might be a worthwhile thing to acquire for your new respective captains… Consequently, Larry is currently on the look out for his missing partner, the Silkie chicken wearing a police hat named "Fifi".

VS
One can’t help but noticed that Gimmick, brilliant, has no social skills. Incapable of forming true connections with most people… perhaps she would connect with a fellow introverted inventor? Perhaps the only way to find out would be to bring one to her!
But would said inventor’s inner copilot take well to leaving the ship that he recently commandeered?

VS
A shipment of parts from the factories to the east has crashed just outside of clockwork city. Word travels to certain ships, such free loot is a tempting offer indeed. Such parts are rare, and rival any of those built within Clockwork city.

VS
The best way to hurt someone who hoping to take over the skies, ship by ship, would most certainly be to take down those who she recently employed. Or perhaps find a way to “discourage” their involvement.

VS
Running a restaurant is hard work, especially when you keep running out of milk at crucial times! However, there is an air dairy conveniently in the skies...the restaurant certainly would have less problems if they could somehow their their hands on their very own  aircow

VS
A nasty storm comes about and Genesis's newest "pet" a woman of many talents, is knocked onto another ship. A ship containing a centaur hybrid and a crew looking for the freedom that the woman's new employer is trying to constrain.

:iconyuukisaragi: Entry: NO ENTRY SUBMITTED </i>

VS
A ship that can travel on water as well as in the skies is a marvel indeed. It most likely would draw the attention of any power hungry person, seeking a technological advantage against the other vermin rising to her skies, enough for her to send someone to take a “look“… in a true pirate like fashion.

You want adventure? The Marauder is docked for a few days while repairs are done on it. For a while, many will be out collecting parts, with only two passengers and their monkey working diligently on it…

VS
Zane, having been spying on Genesis, was spotted, and made a narrow escape. Certainly bringing the spy back before Genesis would earn favor with the future self appointed queen of the skies! Or will the boy be safe, protected by a new friend?

VS
With the Marauder finally getting a doctor, medical supplies have been coming in giant roomy crates. If someone was wanting to see the Marauder sink, removing their only source of medical support before launching any sort of direct attack isn’t a bad way to go now is it…?

Sometimes, if people are not careful, airships can bump into each other. Most unfortunate as there’s no such thing as air ship insurance just yet. This will have to be settled the pirate way -whatever that may be-;

If you’re going to be up in the skies, you’re going to need proper clothes and protection! However, there is quite a shortage of equipment what with so many crews taking up on their own ,you’d almost need to “borrow “from other crews.

VS
FIFI, the only police chicken in clockwork city has gone missing, the reward put up for her safe return is considerable, or she would make quite the bargaining tool for one wanting to influence the cities loyal protectors.

My midterms and computer malfunctions would be inordinately grateful for four weeks, if I happen to be around for the next round.

Everyone's entries are so amazing, I've had so much fun reading these!

I think most of the artists here would actually use the full 4 weeks to make higher quality entries, rather than just use it to slack off. So that (as well as a personal desire for SLEEP) makes me vote for 4 weeks. :)

YES! Nothing like a stack of lovely comics to read:heart: It's looking good people~ Good luck!

The three week deadline is just fine for me. NO REALLY X)! Seems most folks would be happy with four though, and more time certainly cant hurt. I could even go back to colors! And deck out my intermission! Joy!

PS: Did you fine folk get those front views I sent a while back to replace the old ones? :O

Last I checked she just needed to post a few more pages... What happened??

:iconrogue-skies:
Rogue-Skies Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2008
I wish we knew, however it was the afternoon, no more pages were posted so we had no choice to write it off as an incomplete, which is really unfortunate.

Not for you though! Congratulations on moving on! Even without your opponent not finishing your entry was really a delight to read and you certainly did cookie-baker's character justice!

Meh, it's just that there's something so unsatisfying about a win-by-forfeit, and I swear, this is the fourth tournament I've done where my first-round opponent forfeited. It must be some kind of curse.

And it's especially disappointing because she'd gotten at least 16 pages done, too.... Bummer. :(

Oh my, impressive first round, quality entries and not too many forfeits! I want to read them all NOW - but must finish work first... :(

Four weeks would be lovely, yes, what with Fall being crazy busy for everybody (school, work, family-intensive-holidays, all that good stuff...)

I heartily commend a four-week time limit. Three weeks gives me only time enough for three detailed pages or four somewhat more rushed pages - and that kind of pressure is not conducive to high-quality output!

Only a few drop-outs isn't bad. (much better than LoT did so first round).

I'm liking the time off too, feels nice having a little break.

And I vote for 4 weeks, some people might be busy for Thanksgiving.

Four weeks seems like a nice even amount of time and them maybe a full month for round 3? We might just make a poll of it too.

Can't make the deadline too far off though. That (and a general lack of interest, which gladly is not the case here) is what brought down the last tournament I was in. People just kept asking for extensions because they had procrastinated so damn much. What a shame. I'd hate to see it happen again. :(

That being said, four weeks would be an agreeable amount of time.

:iconrogue-skies:
Rogue-Skies Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2008
It's inevitable that people will wait until the last possible minute either way. Four weeks I think is as far as we'll be willing to stretch it and we might try it out for this round, see how things go.
