Contest Specifics:

There are 2 categories for this contest.

Cat A: Build a 10x10 MOC that shows your character in their element. Are they a chef? Show them in a Star Wars-y kitchen. Are they a thug-for-hire? Show them guarding a hideout. Are they a pilot? Show them in a hanger. Winner gets 20 free points in a sector of their choice for their team. MOC must be 10x10, not 5x20 or 2x50.

Cat B: Tell some of your character's backstory. You can use 1 MOC or many and there's no size restriction. Winner gets 30 free points in a sector of their choice for their team.

The Rules:

  • All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submission Form
  • All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above.
  • There are no restrictions on the size/form/content of the builds, as long as they follow the above described goals.
  • Each person may only enter each category once.
  • All entries will earn XP for their team based on their score. Winners will earn additional XP.
  • The Episode will run from Nov 16th to Jan 15th. As long as it is still Jan 15th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. 
  • Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will not be eligible to receive points.
  • The criteria by which your MOCs will be scored is 1) Storytelling, 2) Aesthetics, and 3) Technical Ability. You can earn up to 10 points in each category for a max total of 30 points per entry.
  • The player with the highest scored build using a particular seed part will win control of that seed part. The faction that controls the most seed parts will be the Winning Faction.
