Feral Recruiting

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 26, 2016, 3:01 AM



FERAL RECRUITING

Word has traveled throughout the far reaches of Ulfrheim of a rogue band of Felvargs, who bring not only new and intriguing genetics but also offer fresh bloodlines to populate your pack. This wandering group may be swayed to join your pack, or at least one or two of them if you're lucky! It's fair to assume these ferals will only forge allegiance with the strongest and the bravest, and you are not the only one who wishes to recruit them! You must go toe to toe in a display of both brute strength and also sharp wit, in hopes you can sway the favour of these newcomers. Be warned, however, recruiting is not for the faint of heart and any who enter must be willing to accept that it might not just be the Feral's favour that can be lost; these showdowns will be brutal, are you prepared to leave with trophies upon your skin, or will you run away with your tail between your legs?

RULES & REQUIREMENTS

:bulletwhite: Each image must contain the Feral you're trying to recruit as well as a Felvarg of your own. (An Alpha should you not currently have a Felvarg!)
:bulletwhite: All Felvargs depicted in the image must be 75% visible.
:bulletwhite: Each image must be drawn in the setting/location the feral Felvarg was spotted in.
:bulletwhite: Images must be colored, shaded and have a complex background.
:bulletred: Please be mindful ferals are finalized on upload. They cannot partake in a redesign or makeover kit.
:bulletred: Literature entries must be 1,700+ words and be focused on the task at hand.
:bulletred: Each member may only have one personal entry per Feral.

Please submit your entries to the Recruiting folder, location in the groups gallery. Please also include the following form:

Official Import:
Official Import of Feral:
Location:
Use of EXP (Chosen Winner): yes/no

It is the artists choice if the image can be used for EXP provided they do not place. Please keep in mind that if you place 'no' in the Use of EXP field in the above form, if you win the feral in question you cannot use any artwork created during the recruiting event. (You may use your own artwork, just not artwork created by other members.)

Members that put 'yes' in the field can use any artwork created provided the field above also says yes.

3 runner ups chosen via effort score/poll will be awarded a random battlechest containing special rewards.

The permissions are all set right, so I'm not sure why this is causing issues. Can you please try to submit into this folder? felvargs.deviantart.com/galler…

Submission would exceed the global limit of 1 deviation per 7 days.

On both my writing and this account when I try to put it in.

I seem to be having the same issue as Phicarus! Though I can see the feral recruiting folder, I am unable to contribute to it :< it does not show up in the 'contribute to...' drop down on the main gallery page and if I go to the folder specifically it does not bring up the +Contribute to this gallery option.
link to my image here in case you need to invite: To the Pin! (Polaris + Axel)

You can participate in any and all ferals, no matter the amount of previous ferals you have won. :3

Is it possible to combine both artwork and literature in a single recruiting attempt, as long as all the requirements are met by either the art or the literature?

Example: A 1,700-word story that has flat-coloured, simplistic background images to go with the story.
Example 2: A full-body, complex, backgrounded image that has a shorter-than-the-requirement story attached in the description.

Hi there! Sorry for the delay!

You are more than welcome to write a story in addition to your entry image (or vice versa), so long as the entry you are submitting officially fits all requirements for the recruiting attempt. For example, you can make an image that fits the requirements and include a short story (or one to the length the prompt requires if you so choose) in the description!
Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Oh, do the chest and felvarg winners get announced on the news journal? ouo Just curious, since I wasn't sure if I like missed it or something ;u; Thanks! 
I know this has the recruited Felvargs; I just wasn't sure where all of it was announced. xD

It will indeed be in the news announcement. We are simply waiting for now so we can do 1 news post rather than 3. It shouldnt be much longer.

I've seen it announced in the news posts in the past (at least, who recruited 'vargs) - I imagine there'll be an update tonight. Not sure on the chests, though.

What does RNG stand for? 
And the other one is Effort.
Reply
:iconulfrheim:
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2017
RNG stands for random number generator. That means we will roll a die against everyone who entered, to get the result.
Effort is as it sounds, the images are judged based on how much effort was portrayed from your usual works.

Just a quick little thing;
Say you want to try for a Felvarg that requires effort in their entry, how do you show this via literature/how is it judged compared to the art attempts? Is it just the length of the story or...? Thank you ahead of time to take time to answer this question ^^
Reply
:iconulfrheim:
Ulfrheim Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2017
We would check a number of things, length to your usual works. How well you portrayed the personality of the Felvarg you were taming, how you included your own Felvarg. Did it focus heavily on the task at hand, and things alike.

       "Each image must contain the Feral you're trying to recruit as well as a
        Felvarg of your own. (An Alpha should you not currently have a Felvarg!)"
                                               
I own a geno from the AC, but I haven't had the funds to get someone to design her yet. Would I still be able to use an Alpha to recruit a feral?

What's the group's policy on using recruiting entries for exp? I've been trying to decide if I want to participate,  but I'm uncomfortable with the idea of the winners essentially stealing the images I worked hard on for exp...

It would be up to the artist as to if they wanted to allow the artwork to be used by the owner.
