Welcome back everyone!

It’s that time of year again. You know, that time of year where most of the adults are recovering from trying to drown the sorrows of the year in ethanol and most of the kids are recovering from the Darth Vader-esque β€œnoooooooo” moment in which they realize that their time of freedom is slowly waning- at least for those chilluns on the north side of the equator. ANYWAY: One thing’s for sure, no matter where you are on the globe, and that’s that you’ve likely made yourself some promises that you have no intention of keeping! Which leads us into our prompt for this month’s contest… drumroll please….

RPGC #13: Resolutions!




Bonus Categories:

  • β€œShe’ll NEVER sink!” - It’s perfect. It’s so simple yet so beautiful and amazing and awe-inspiring and absolutely flawless in construction. How could it possibly fall through the cracks? Unfortunately for us, the biggest things tend to also have the most cataclysmic resolutions...
  • β€œβ€¦That was anticlimactic.” – What it says on the tin.
  • β€œThe end of an era is upon us.” – Empires rise and empires fall- we’ve all read it in the history books. So too have we read that history repeats itself. But in the heat of the moment, in seeking a peaceful resolution, these statements are likely to skip the mind of those involved.
  • β€œBut the hidden beauty is the greatest of all.” – Paint us a picture. Allow us to look deeper, and then let us question everything- but to do that, your picture must be sufficiently high-resolution, no?

And in honor of the sp00ky number of the contest…

  • SUPERSTITION. – Superstitions are just traditions taken to the nth degree, right?


FRIENDLY PSA: Nowhere in RPGC’s write-ups has it ever said that entries are writing-exclusive. As it was originally started as a writing contest and the majority of entries we get are those of a written medium, there will be some issues to be worked out when it comes time for judging in the event that we have people take a more artsy spin but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, if we come to it. I will say this now, thoughβ€”All entrants regardless of medium will be eligible for bonus categories.





Now, here at RPGC, we’ve made ourselves some resolutions too. We’re all going to get at least six hours of sleep a night, eat all our veggies, remember to clean up our rooms, not prank our roommates by working necromancy when we think they’re asleep, do all our homework at least a week in advanceβ€”but most importantly, we are also going to do our best to liven up these prompts in the future- And we want YOUR input! Yes, you! Random…faceless…strangers…that we don’t know….but THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE YOU’RE READING THIS AND WE NEED HELP.

Let us know in the comments below how we did, and if you want to see more of this sort of content be sure to like this video and subscribe to our – wait, no, that’s the wrong social media. But seriously- Click the link to go put your ideas in for future themes, and feel free to leave us a post or a PM (send it to @RomanAria for her to direct to the contest staff accordingly) telling us how we did with our theme this month!

Oh, yeah, before we forget to mention: Submit all entries in a pm to @RPGC Entry no later than objective midnight on Monday, 16th January- entries to be posted on the following Tuesday morning as soon as one of us wakes up. Be sure that in the titles of your PMs you give us the title you want the story posted under, and be sure to somewhere in the body of your message indicate if you want your name mentioned- unless you specify you want to take ownership, we will leave it anonymous in the voting thread.

So the general prompt is just "resolutions [exclamation mark]"?

I mean, no foul in trying, I suppose, so maybe I'll have something written by the 16th.

@Karkinos The bonus categories are there to give a hand in how to think, if you want further prompt.

Now, a resolution is an action that has been decided on at the end of something. New year's resolution is that we decide to do something here as the past year ends, the resolution of a meeting is the list of actions they've decided to go through with during said meeting, at the end of a journey a character might make a resolution of what they need to do, etc...

I think. That's the understanding as I've understood it. Some bonus categories make me hesitate. Like, the first one. Is it like Titanic itself made the resolution to sink? I'm a bit unsure if I got the meaning of the word correctly, as it isn't one I commonly make use of. Anyways. I need to consider further what I will do, because my ideas so far have been incredibly plain. I need to commit a bit more thought to this myself. Hahaha.

Or is it? Hahahahaha...

@PlatinumSkink@Karkinos but also @everyone else Remember guys, we intentionally leave the prompts as vague and triple-meaninged as possible. We want to see your off-the-wall awesome creativeness. And so we try to pick as many multi-meaninged terms as possible- resolutions can be the solutions to conflicts or tense situations, but they can also be promises made for the future, or they can be how detailed an image is, but they can also... etc. It's entirely up to you all how you interpret it.

We will NEVER reject an entry for not adhering to the prompt. The prompt is there as a general guide that's supposed to mean different things for different people, not to try to force people into one line of thinking. Y'all are over complicating it!

...but this is actually a really interesting detail and it will make the variety of entries a joy to read, in the end, so yeah, thanks.

@Blitz OF COURSE WE'RE FRIENDS! I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

@Karkinos I was under the impression "yes" was implied, so I went off on my own tangent. Haha. Anyways, yupp. As RomanAria says. It's all what we make of it~!
