*Before we begin this weeks challenge, I just wanted to apologize for it being posted so late. With how messy the finish to our last challenge was...with a quit and an insta-elimination...it was a lot to work out. That's also why there was no elimination animation or 'official' winners/losers announcement. The initial plan was to have post a piece and go through with a real elimination, because I really hated having you guys draw stuff that...didn't help your guys' game at all, but that didn't quite go through either. So yeah, to make an officially statement, last weeks elimination was Mariano, and Jessica's OC will be replacing Monroe's. I have asked Jess to upload her character today, so be on the lookout for them! Anyway, on to the challenge at hand....*
As everyone stands gathered at the edge of the forest, Jakub walks out with Chef, the two hosting particularly nasty smiles today.
Jakub: Gooood morning campers. I hope you're ready, because we've got a particularly....exciting challenge for you today...
Chester: I hate when he says that...
Tara: Seriously...I'm still torn up from that last challenge on Bony Island...
Jakub: Hey, shuuut uuuuup and listen to what I'm saying! Your challenge today is kind of a spin on the classic game of Capture the Flag. Let me break it down for you piece by piece....
Step One: Your team builds a fort somewhere on the island. It can be in the forest, on the beach, wherever. BUT, it cannot be in the same location as another teams fort. First come, first served per location.
Step Two: There are two "Flags" at the top of a hill somewhere in the forest. One of these flags is green, the other is red. The green flag is the one you WANT to have secured in your fort by the end of this game. The red flag will determine the LOSERS of this challenge. Every team should be trying to get the green flag, while only the two teams WITHOUT the green flag can get the red flag and try to get it into the other teams fort.
Does that make sense? If Brawns have the green flag and Brains has the Red, the Brains MUST get the red flag in the Beauty's fort, and THEN try to get the green flag.
Ramona: So....can't we just leave the red flag where it is and not have to worry about it?
Jakub: Good question. Nope! Second team to get to the hill will immediately HAVE to take the red flag. And considering every team needs to 'tag' the hill in order to begin the game...they'll have a head start to try and get the red flag in the third teams fort.(First/Second/Third team placing will rely on who draws their team reaching the hill/taking a flag soonest, just like finding the shed in the last challenge).
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS CHALLENGE IS TUESDAY JULY 19TH. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE ASK ME!!! I wasn't as specific as I should have been with the last challenge, so please if anything is even a little confusing, JUST ASK ME!
This challenge could definitely rely on some cross-team collaboration to tell a great story, so go all out if you want! But keep in mind, while showing character interactions is great, your main judging is coming from the challenges, don't lose sight of that!
Also apologies for how short this weeks RP is....just in a bit of a rush as I need to go to work soon!
