They say that a picture tells a thousand words; our Picture Challenges see how many words our members can tell from one image. Given a random picture or piece of art selected from a different category at random (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Medieval etc.), members are challenged to come up with a character or story concept derived from the image. The concepts can be serious and heavily-planned out, or they can be light-hearted and silly; it is entirely up to the member. The point is to see what you can interpret and develop from an image. Don't be afraid to jump outside the box with your ideas; this is an exercise in creativity. It's never too late to do any of the challenges; you are very welcome to go back and try the older challenges as well as the new ones. Feel free to take ideas and concepts from this challenge and put them into your own roleplays; all we ask is that you give some credit to whoever came up with the idea. Picture Challenges are conducted in two ways: PICTURE CHALLENGES IN THE BLOGS Once a week a Picture Challenge in posted in the Iwaku Community blog by a staff member. PICTURE CHALLENGE GAME IN THE CBOX On slow nights, a staff might run a "game" version of Picture Challenge. Then post the archives/results up in the blog. --- NOTE: Feel free to respond to this challenge at any time; new additions are always welcome. Should you use some of the concepts and ideas posted in this challenge, please give some credit to whoever came up with the original idea. CATEGORY: This week, the category is FANTASY.
