Please read all the Rules before applying.
This is a comics-only competition. There is no limit on the amount/size of the pages. Color or non colored, that is up to you.
Two characters max per person. You may enter 1 or a tag team of two characters.
Original Characters only!
You may enter your own crew, rather then joining one of the existing factions, however, only two of those crew will be considered fighting characters. The rest will be NPC who further the plot/fill the background.
No magic. This is a steam punk influenced world. Technology and BASIC alchemy has been developed, but magic has not.
Different species are allowed, as long as they comply with the rule above. Elves can apply but they had no magic. Wings are possible, however, be warned that those trying to dominate the sky will have no problem shooting down freelancers. That is why even winged creatures need to join a faction/crew.
Weapons of all sorts are allowed as long as they are plausible within the steam punk universe. No laser technology.
You must profile a profile sheet of your characters (if making your own crew, then you only need to make it for the fighting ones)
Also you need to provide an intro comic that shows your characters somehow getting aboard either Genesiss or Gimmicks ships in one way or another and asking them or their first mates to join. Will you launch yourself from a giant catapult into their ship or sneak aboard with their food supplies. That is up to you.
If you are going to have your own crew, then you need to create a comic of them getting into the skies in their own craft OR explaining how they came to be in the skies, who they are, what they are doing up there.
If you choose to design your own crew, you can provide a reference picture of their makeshift ship, but it is not mandatory. We welcome you to have fun and design your own skimmers, just remember, keep it steam punk.
Which side you choose to align yourself with, or if you choose to make your own crew will not effect your chances of getting in. We are prepared to have uneven alliances and wildcards and are prepared to handle it. Join whoever you feel you will have the most fun with!
Additional tip: Parachutes are good.
Once the applications have been sorted through, you will be paired off against another sky hell raiser in random scenarios that we will arrange for you. You may be sent off to steal Gimmicks stash of bananas or told to defend them with your life. At which point you will have to draw your character defeating your opponent at your scenario.
Failure to get your entry in before the allotted time and date will result in automatic disqualification, victory going automatically to your opponent.
Each round will be judge by a panel of judges, which will feature guest judges each round, in at attempt to keep things as fair as possible.
Remember: We are pirates, not assassins. We maim, pillage and destroy but we try not to kill. Killing is messy. Death is so disorderly, even us of loose morals frown upon it. Greatly.
However, should you and your opponent agree to a fight to the very finish, such an arrangement must be decided before the submission of your match, and both of you must send a note to this account stating that you are both in agreement.
We will be opening for applications to join on Aug 15th and will be accepting them until Sept 15th, 11:59PM.
Out of all the applicants we get, we will narrow it down to 32 lucky sky scallywags to begin the first round.
Have fun and good luck!PrefaceSteampunk, Clockwork City and YouHow to AuditionApplicationsRulesFAQDatesNewsChat
