General Prompt Entry Rules and Guidelines

Please be sure you're familiar with our basic rules before continuing!
 
A small note as well moving forward.  Due to site prompt submission windows being automated we cannot troubleshoot any potential problems easily if submissions are made last minute. Often staff, specifically prompt staff, are not up at the time things close in an automated way. Any submissions made within the last hour before prompt close we will not make allowances for if they are not in before the deadline, aside from very specific cases like a sitewide outage that impacts the site's entire user base. If there are concerns about internet outages/hiccups/lag/etc. please be sure to not leave prompts last minute. We understand that some things can't be helped but we cannot troubleshoot or try to help with only minutes to spare.

 "Summer Snack Break"

#44 Draw or write about your elnin with the snack they've been waiting for now that the miasma months are well past!

Summer is a bustling time for elnin across Eyre. The air is clear of miasma and many elnin are traveling or getting work done outside. With so much to do there are sure to also be many snack breaks in between to feed some hungry elnin! Find a good spot to set up a picnic or just settle in for a small break, there are many tasty treats all across Eyre for residents to munch on and share.

What is your elnin eating? Is it a regional delicacy or something more widespread? Perhaps they've stopped at a pop up roadside stand for something delicious only offered during the summer season when Eyre's residents are out and about. Maybe they've waited a long time only to find a well known food is...in fact not delicious and they're regretting their choices. Well there's something for everyone, right?



If you're a non-owner looking for an Elnin to draw, or if you'd like to offer your Elnin for use to non-owners, please take a look over here at Our Gift Art Resources Page:

Monthly Regular prompts like this one will have slightly different "Quick Rules" so please read below to familiarize yourself with them!

 


 

This monthly regular prompt's "Quick Rules":

  • Entry Window: The 1st of the month until the last day of the month at 11:59pm PST (Timezone Reference Here).
    • Keep in mind month end dates will vary. We will be granting AP for this prompt based on the timestamp your prompt was submitted by, not when it was approved.
  • To Enter: Use the "Submit" button for this prompt!
  • Completion Reward:
    • [1AP] max per submission per month
      • AP must be granted to an elnin you own, so make sure you have an elnin in mind that you're earning this AP for specifically. AP is a character based currency and therefore must be granted to a character.
  • Qualifying for AP:
    • Either:
      • Draw a standalone background of the Eyre region you would like to earn AP for.
        Or
      • Write 300 words (or more) about a region you would like to earn AP for. Describe in your own words either what aspects this region is known for with imagery or why your elnin would like to visit this region. Be sure to include iconic features of the region or many of the region's general features to make it clear what region they're in.
    • AP is a character based currency meaning you will need to own an elnin to claim currency for this prompt.
    • Information on Regional Affinity and Eyre Regions can be found in the resource here: [Regional Affinity Guide]
    • If you're unsure what to write or draw about about consider:
      • What kinds of activities can you do in the region?
      • What characteristics of the landscape draw elnin to this region?
      • What parts of the region might travelers need to look out for or find unpleasant?
    • You do not need to include your elnin visually or writing wise for this prompt but make sure they are not a focal point. Your elnin should not take up more than 25% of the canvas in Regional Scenery submissions. You're welcome to write a description from the point of view of the elnin you’re earning the AP for or include them if you want, but you’re not required to. Just be sure if you include the elnin you're earning AP for that the focus is the regional imagery description and not dialogue. This just means if you include your elnin we won't mind if it's just a speck on a cliffside in a region like Kyendi but we would ask the elnin not be very large that it becomes the piece's focal point rather than the region.
    • In order verify that your piece qualifies for an Affinity Point (AP), please add the following information to your submission's comment text:
      • Regional Affinity: [ Eyre Region name (e.g. Ahza, Bellmoril, Ealei, Enmir, Faerindell, Kyendi, Palu'au Islands, Silveil, Strynhalde, Zevija ) ]
      • Elnin: [ Link to masterlist entry or their ELN# from the masterlist ]
  • Maximum Entries: [1] per month
  • Other:
    • Props/elnin present will not award EC for this prompt if you decide to include them.
    • Please only submit newly created art. Please do not submit commissioned works or previously-created art or art done on reused bases.
    • As always, non-owners are more than welcome to enter!
    • Shading is no longer being required for prompts but flat colors are still required. Shading is now optional.
    • Collab pieces are not allowed for prompt submissions.
As usual, please feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear. Have fun!!

 



- FAQs -

Q: Are elnin mandatory in Regional Scenery pieces?
A:  No! In fact Regional Scenery pieces we would like to focus on the scenery or settings where elnin are not a focal point. Market scenery, etc. populated with elnin are welcome but no elnin should be a focal point or take up more than 25% of the entire scene.

Monthly Regular prompts like this one will have slightly different "Quick Rules" so please read below to familiarize yourself with them!

 


 

This monthly regular prompt's "Quick Rules":

  • Entry Window: The 1st of the month until the last day of the month at 11:59pm PST.
    • Keep in mind month end dates will vary. We will be granting EC for this prompt based on the timestamp your prompt was submitted by, not when it was approved.
  • To Enter: Use the "Submit" button for this prompt!
  • Completion Reward:
    • [2EC] max per submission per month
  • Qualifying for EC:
    • Either:
      • Draw a fullbody piece of giftart of an elnin not owned by you.
        Or
      • Write a story that is 300 words (or more) about an elnin not owned by you.
    • Make sure if you do not own an elnin or you're doing art of someone else's elnin you have permission to draw or write for that character! You can find more information about this on our Gift Art Resources page!
    • An important note for writers: Some owners only allow drawn gift art since writing for characters with little personality info shown on their profile can be difficult. If an owner does not provide a method of contact they are alright being contacted at, or state outright they are alright receiving written gift art, we highly recommend finding a character or owner that does specify they are ok with written gift art. Do not approach users privately via offsite platforms/DMs unless they have been explicit on their profiles they are ok with as much! We don't want anyone feeling uncomfortable or like their personal spaces are being disregarded. If you're feeling stumped but only do writing you can also stop by our discord server (here) and inquire in the #character_connections channel to see if anyone would be alright with a written gift story for a character.
    • Under the "Characters" section, for your gift art submission please add the elnin(s)/kittom(s) depicted in the drawn or written gift art. If you are unable to do so please write that character's "Character Code" (ex. ELN001) in the comments section for your submission so they are identifiable, do not just give us their name, we will soft reject the submission and request that you add the "Character Code" in the comments for your submission.
  • Maximum Entries: [1] per month
  • Other:
    • Backgrounds are not required for this gift art prompt!
    • You may include additional elnin in your prompt, including elnin you own, just be sure at least one of the elnin you don't own that you're doing gift art for still has 75-80% of their body showing.
    • Backgrounds/props/additional elnin will not award more EC for this prompt if you decide to include them.
    • Please only submit newly created art. Please do not submit commissioned works or previously-created art or art done on reused bases.
    • As always, non-owners are more than welcome to enter!
    • Shading is no longer being required for prompts but flat colors are still required. Shading is now optional.
    • Collab pieces are not allowed for prompt submissions.

- FAQs -

Q: Are backgrounds mandatory?
A:  No! Not this prompt specifically.
 
Q: Are all art submissions of elnin/kittoms that belong to someone else?
A: Yes! You should not own the elnin/kittom you are doing gift art of.
 
Q: Can I include my own elnin in the gift art?
A:  Yes, just be sure the elnin you don't own that you are doing gift art for is still the primary subject of a submission/is still 75-80% visible.
 
Q: Can I give my gift art piece a background?
A: Yes! You can submit a background with your gift piece if you wish but we will not be reviewing gift art piece backgrounds for AP.
 
Q: Can I write a story about another user's elnin as gift art?
A:  Yes, but make sure you check if the user is ok with a written story or gift art. A user may have information on their elnin's profile or their own profile relative to what types of gift art they are comfortable with receiving for their elnin. If they do not specify but have marked their elnin as allowing gift art you'll want to reach out to them first, just make sure they are ok being contacted! If they indicate they do not wish to be contacted or do not provide a preferred means of contact via dA or discord you may want to choose a different elnin to do gift art for. Alternatively you can check in the group's discord and if anyone has characters they would be comfortable accepting a gift story for! Some users may not allow written gifts if they are concerned about their elnin's personality being inaccurately portrayed.
