Hey all!

So, beginning in October, we are going to get an open creative group going here at the forums. There's tons to do and prep, but mostly at this point, I want to get the word out to everyone in every Silver Age Sentinels Affiliated Team out there!

The Basics:

The plan is to have monthly prompts, very general in their scope. From the prompt, everyone is invited to create! Be it flash fiction, full stories, poems, art, and full video if you gots the skills, whatever.

The only real rule is it should in some way connect to the Sentinels (or affiliates). The most likely way to do this is through a story or song or art about your own character, but it could be a story of a common nemesis, a recognized location, or (with some implied or expressed consent) a story of another member of the team!

Also, not a rule, but a suggestion. Remember that the Sentinels is all about that good ole' silver age feel, and work accordingly. But really, the sky's the limit!

Why you should get involved:

You should get involved for the kicks, for a penny, for your mother. Whichever really. This isn't a contest, it's just fun and recognition. And I'll be honest, you should get involved because I personally think you have a story in you. We all joined one of these awesome teams because we wanted story and song. We are all RPers here, and even if you don't have confidence in your skills, you are a story teller. Tell your story. Draw your portrait. Recite your poem.

Plus? Stories told about our characters make us more recognizable to each other. No more having to re-introduce, or at least not as much. We can really build a continued tale, maybe even combine stories or carry the ideas into RP.

And remember, we're all friends here. I mean, we're all at least confidants. No one's going to tear your work apart, or criticize or bully. We're going to tell you what we love about it!

This October's Theme:

October's theme is Tales From the Sentinels Crypts. It's when the ghosts and ghouls mingle with the trick or treaters in the streets, when the dead come back to shamble in the roads, when the Quiph leaks yet again into our fine city.

Tell us your story with your favorite medium of a haunted Millenium City. What scare is your character dealing with? What is your most terrifying nemesis up to? How are you to deal with these haunted streets while still trying to get your costume together in time for the party?

The October: Tales from the Sentinels Crypts Creative Corner thread will be created on October 1st, and be open to submissions throughout the month!

And Finally:

We are open to suggestions on how to make this a continual awesome reason to come to the forums! We will post the next theme of each month somewhere around the mid point of the month before, like we've done here for the October Theme. At this point though, any suggestions are open. Feel free to comment on this thread towards new themes, or ideas towards organization, or...well anything really.

Don't post your new stories here though. Again, there will be a new thread in October for the collection of this first run. I'm super excited, and I hope you all are too!

Feel free to spread the word! Lets get everyone in on this, and really get those stories flowing!

Thank you Rune for sticking this post to the top!

Also, I forgot to mention, if anyone wants to sign up in this thread, just so we can gauge interest, that'd be awesome!

Hey hey!

Just a quick shout to remind everyone that October is nearly upon us! I'll be getting the thread for stories started as close to the 1st as I can. Remember that it's open for the entirety of the month!

Also, I'll be open to ideas of what November's theme can be, and I'll be posting the early notice of that by Oct 15th, so folks can start thinking. November is American Thanksgiving right?
Right?
Maybe something related? I'm open to ideas is all.

Yep, November is Thanksgiving month for those of us stateside. It's also the end of fall before winter sets in during late December.
So thankful tales....tales of autumn.

I will enter for October's Theme with a lottery of course, please check out The Mysterious Curio Shop of One Adam Westings for the actual lottery run and the winner will be posted to the proper Creative Corner thread when finished. The final image wIll be Tales From the Sentinels Crypts inspired.
Thanks for taking the initiative Masamundane.

I'm working on a Liberty Gold story already. Is there going to be a special spot to post this October stuff?

The October Creative Corner will have its own thread. I'm going to see if I can get it stickied to the top of Truth or Fiction for the October month!

I'll be opening the thread as close to Oct. 1st as I can. Heck, if I'm still up at just past midnight, I'll do it then, but if not, some time October 1st I'll get it running.

It's going to be awesome!
