So, looking back I realised that this site launched fully some time in April 2021 and to mark this as well as thank everyone who's taken the time to post, or is going to take the time to post in future, and to pay back the Exalted community at large, it's time for another contest.

Several of us on the staff and our game group are putting together a little prize pool to commission art of a character of the winner's choice. Right now we're committing to having two winners that will be selected randomly from all the entries rather than it being judged, in order to keep a prize like this fair.

We've already arranged for a bust by an artist called RodC (on insta) who has completed several pieces for us as a group in the past to be one of the prizes. We're also exploring using Fluffy_Dus (on twitter - some NSFW) who has also worked with us in the past as the 2nd. Both are great to work with and are happy to do character design work so even if you don't have previous art of a character to act as a reference you can still enter. Let us get them art for you!

Any regular T&Cs the artists have will apply and we'll want to post the winning entries here on the forum, otherwise there's no strings attatched. The art will be yours to share or do what you want with and we're claiming no rights or ownership on it or the characters.

So, how do you enter. Simple - just go and post on the SHARE YOUR CHARACTERS thread and tell us about the character you'd be getting art of.

Anyone who fills out all the questions there about their character will get an entry in the raffle once the deadline is up and we'll pick 2 winners from that. Obviously we encourage you to take the chance to show off and share your PC in as much detail as you'd like and comment on other people's while you're over there. And feel free to post as many PCs as you like but to keep it fair it's going to be one raffle slot per account.

It's as easy as that. Tell us about your character, get a chance of winning art of them. Athough if you want to stick around and post on other threads while you're at it you'll be doing the site a solid and increasing the chances of us repeating stuff like this in future.

 Edit - this originally said close date was March 2022, it's now been fixed

FInal couple of disclaimers, site staff and our playgroup obviously aren't eligible to win this even if we share PCs. And while there's no minimum wordcount to enter we do want posts on the character thread to engage with the spirit of things. One word answers stand a chance of being discounted for entry

Thanks again to everyone who entered. To keep things as above board as possible and make it clear we weren't weighting the winners in any way @Kittlefish , our friendly neighbourhood Vtuber, was kind enough to stream the draw.

You can find the vod here courtesy of her twitch. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1484141940
Please please give her channel a little love if you get a chance

Our winners are @Lillia24 and @Bifford , congrats to the pair of you. It's pretty late here but I'll email the pair of you tomorrow about working out commissions for Walks in Shadows and Jade Expanse.

There was a bit of a question over whether it was harsh to exclude you or not and in the end we leant towards including everyone who'd made a legit attempt to engage with the thread. It felt pretty mean spirited to get too pedantic and make you the only one we excluded.

I am still "making him", so I don't actually know some of those answers myself yet. I have a general thought of where he's going, but I'm in the thick of choosing charms right now, and those are what solidify characters in my head.

All good, hopefully all this helps you get an idea of things for him :) Maybe once he's done you can double back and share some of those details so people can see what you come up with
