With 14 out of 18 correctly matched face claims, the winner of the challenge and the sponsor bonus of 10 points is:
It’s my fault for failing to mention but for the pieces of art, they should be related to the games in some way. If you submitted some already that aren’t related you’ll still get points but they won’t be posted simply because relevance.
I used photovisi for those tribute posts but they technically weren’t the reapings.
I agree considering I wrote it.
Publishing for notice: Yes
Publishing this for notice: It does have to be yours, however you can simply edit a picture online in some way before turning it in. Simply copy pasting something won’t grant points.
Ah yes thank you for reminding me, I’ll make a post
Submit any work of art of some sort, it will be posted on the art page on the blog and your tribute will get 2 sponsor points for each piece of work.
Dear President Snow,
I’m happy to report that our pilots have effectively flown and traced the borders of the this land. Our map makers are working with them to try and see if we can come up with a rough estimate of the continent’s layout.
In the meanwhile, we have been exploring further west, finding something surprising but familiar. It’s what seems to be divisions between areas, based on industry. Just like Panem, yet everyone seems to be equal rather than ranked. Our working title for the almost-districts are what we’re now calling “zones”. Until we see some differentials in the citizen’s status can we begin to rank them.
As far as the two new zones, they seem to be split in half by the north and southern regions. Towards the north is what we believe used to be a freezing cold land-turned vegetation-filled fertile land. Rare spices, some of which I have never come across fills the aroma of this zone.
The southern zone continues the trend of flat land covered in vegetation, though most of it is being grazed on by exotic animals, the likes of which I have never seen before. It truly is a marvel to observe the peace between man and beast, such a foreign concept.
It is my hope that we discover all of these zones and what keeps them all unified. Until then I am thankful to you for funding this mission, General DesCarttes agrees I’m sure.
All tasks will be due Sunday at 11pm PST.
1: For this year, training has been cut in half to see how the tributes will adapt with the sparse preparation. Disperse 4 total hours into any amount at any of the following stations:
Describe the reaping your tribute experienced, the length should be however long you think it needs to be. Remember to mention your Escorts and how they appear.
Describe what your tribute wears and how it relates to your district. Keep in mind that the sponsors are watching, one of which enjoys seeing teamwork through matching parade outfits. Read more on the sponsors page. Note that customization of the horses or the chariot is not allowed.
3: Private Training
You have any environment and supply at your disposal to prove your ability to win the games to the sponsors watching, so long as it follows the laws of physics. Remember that your score has no effect once the platforms rise.
You have the stage, Caesar, and anything you need to show yourself off in front of Panem and your competition.
Before the games begin, tasks will either be labeled as Optional or Mandatory. Mandatory tasks will affect your chances to win the game in the end. Optional tasks will not affect your game play at all, but will provide sponsorship opportunities. As there are 24 of you, it would be wise to try and get the edge on your competition with the help of sponsors.
After the games begin, the tasks will become different.
Sponsor points will be distributed out in various measurements over the course of the games, but for select tasks, the best submission will be granted a large sponsorship boost. In addition, prizes will be awarded to winning task submissions other than sponsor points to be revealed later.
For example, a winner has been chosen as far as who submitted the best biography with their tribute application.
This tribute is:
Celestia wore a poker face as always when her name was pulled from the bowl. The secret gambler from District 12 would be hardly a secret when Panem watches her every move. Taking the ultimate gamble by participating in the game, Celestia will prove if she will take the call of victory or fold under the pressure.
Rusty has already lost his sisters from lung diseases and now loses his chance at a normal life when his name was drawn. He hopes his work ethic and strength will give him a fighting chance in the games.
