Misfortune Contest

Broken mirrors cast prophecies of sickness and death. Hardship falls on the carefree who spill salt and tip horseshoes. Crossing paths with black cats and sidewalk cracks brings tragic accidents. Grab your nazar and cross your fingers to protect yourself from the powers you cannot see, and welcome to the third annual RPC Authority Halloween Contest!

Submissions Info

The Misfortune Contest: Create an RPC article with the theme of misfortune or superstition. The submission with the highest final rating will win.

  • Optional Challenge: Write the scariest Misfortune entry! Those who vote on more than half of entries will be able to vote for which entry they think is the scariest. (Leave a comment in the discussion forum to say when you no-vote an article!) The winner will be awarded with the special challenge badge and a featured spot on the front page.

Pumpkin Carving Contest: Carve an impressive pumpkin! (Other objects are accepted, including Sugar Skull decoration and anything else that you can think of. Don't be afraid to get creative.)

  • Do not request for people to change their vote on your entry, excessively push or pester people to rate it, or message an overtly substantial amount of people to read your entry such that it may provide you an unfair advantage.
