Hello and welcome to a brand spanking new Mod Challenge! Your mods have decided, since we do so much, that we want a little payment. We want a fic written, but just telling you what we want written would be FAR too easy, you will have to guess. Welcome to FanFiction Clue!How it will work: After signing up in this thread, you’ll be sent a PM with your ‘clue cards’ which will be three things the mods DO NOT want in their fic, be it a character, action or location. Other people will be sent “clue cards’ that are different from yours. In order to make a guess as to what the mods want, you will then write a story with what you think the mods want written and post it in the story forums. Since you know they DON’T want what you have, you wouldn’t want to write a fic with those things in it... or maybe you do want to do that to throw people off?? It’s completely up to you. Your fic can be a drabble, or a short fic, but it has to be at least 100 words and make it clear what character, action and location you are guessing. Others who are participating will then comment on the fic and the first person who can disprove your fic will post “I can disprove this story” in the thread and them PM you with the 1 “clue card” they have that disproves your story. (Please add the mods to any conversations so we can monitor for false information). If you are the first to comment and can’t prove the fic wrong, still comment, but say “I cannot disprove this story”. If someone has already disproven the story, simply comment on how amazing the guess was! Players will keep writing, posting and disproving each other until someone writes a fic that no one can disprove. That player will then PM the mods to see if their guess is correct. If it is, then they win! If it isn’t, then it’ll be obvious that the fic was not written, it was a random guess and they are out of the game. (Confused? See below for an example!) Yes I said win, but what is the prize? Colors, of course, silly! One winner gets colors and a title for a week, not to mention bragging rights of being the first person to win FanFic Clue! But wait, there’s MORE! There are opportunities for readers to get colors too! If you do not want to participate by writing, you can still get colors. If you notice a trend in the fics being guessed, say one particular character, action or location keeps coming up and you think the writers are on to something, PM the mods with your hunch (only 1 of the 3 items can be guessed) and at the end of the game, the first reader to have guessed the correct item from the character list, the first reader to have guessed the correct item from the action list and the first reader to have guessed the correct item from the location list will be given colors for 24 hours. Readers are only allowed 2 guesses, so use them wisely. Other things you need to know: Dates Sign up in this thread by: SEPTEMBER 16 You will receive your “Clue Cards” by: SEPTEMBER 22 (The game will start then) You can only write 2 guesses (stories) per week and must have 3 days between each guess. If you don't get two guesses written in a week, there is no penalty, but you can not write more than 2 guesses in a 7 day period. Please bold your guesses at the top of your story so there is no confusion as to what you are guessing. In this thread will be a complete list of items, we recommend copy/pasting this list to your own document so you can cross things off as you find out the things that the mods do not want. You only need one thread posted in the story forums, each of your stories will go in this thread. Please post a link to your thread here in this thread so we can make a master list of threads to keep things all in one place. Don’t forget to include mavjade and Briannakin when you PM/Convo a disproval of a story. If you can disprove two (or all three) things in a person’s story, you only need to tell the one thing, keep the other(s) to yourself. You must be honest. If you are the first person to read a story and you can disprove the story, you must do it. You may NOT share clues outside of the rules of the game, please don’t even share them with people not writing as readers are also allowed to guess. There is a no tolerance policy for cheating. Strategy is a part of Clue, we want to encourage strategic thinking in this challenge. However, if you are unsure a certain strategy is within the rules, please PM mavjade and Briannakin. Confused? Here is an example: Writer #1’s gets PM’d with the following Clue Cards: Jaina Solo The Jedi Temple Handling a Lightsaber Writer #1 knows that these three things are NOT what the mods want in the story so Writer #1 looks at the master list of items and writes a story like so: Character: Han Solo - Location: Hoth – Action: Flying the Falcon Han Solo hated being cold. He always figured that he would be able to live his life how he wanted, where he wanted, but now he found himself stuck on an ice planet called Hoth with a bunch of do-gooders looking for any help they could get, including his. The thing he hated most was that he wanted to just jump in the Falcon and just fly away, but every time he tired, he found himself pulled back in. It was the kid and the princess, despite himself, they had grown on him and he just couldn’t leave them hanging. Writer #2 has the following Clue Cards: Luke Skywalker Hoth Flying a X-Wing Writer #2 Would then comment on the story (actual comments about things you liked about the story are highly encouraged!) and say “I can disprove this story” somewhere in their comment. If they are the first person to say so about that particular story they would then PM Writer #1, mavjade and Briannakin and say they can disprove the story with the Clue Card “Hoth”. Writer #1 would then cross Hoth off their own personal list and they would write another story once at least 3 days had passed since they wrote the last story.
