    Default RPA Decathlon - [Updates every 2 days]


    Welcome, and thank you for dropping by! This is the RPA decathlon, a collection of ten different writing challenges that will be revealed over the course of the month! If you have any questions about a particular challenge, please don’t hesitate to PM myself or another mod.

    Rules:

    1. New challenges will be revealed every 48 hours at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check back regularly!

    2. If a post you submit is M or R rated, please label it as such. Obviously, all the standard RPA rules also apply.

    3. You may submit a single post per prompt.

    4. Submit your posts here in this thread using [hide] tags, with the challenge title clearly shown in the spoiler text (to do this, use the code [hide=challenge title text here]).

    5. Deadline for submission for all prompts will be midnight EST on the 30th of April. This is to be fair to members who might not be able to log on every day - we’d rather test your creativity than your writing speed!

    6. Badges will be awarded to all players who rise to the challenge! Completing 6 prompts within the month will earn you a bronze medal. Completing 8 will earn you a silver. Completing all 10 will earn you a gold!

    Also, a big thank you to our previous organiser of this event, @Nazgul;

    On your marks.

    Get set.

    Go!

    The Challenges:

    2nd April: Event 1 - The 100 Word Sprint. This event requires you to write 100 words on a specific topic. While it is allowed to go a little over the 100 words, those who go under will be disqualified.

    The Topic: Kittens!

    * * * * * *

    4th April: Event 2 - The High-ku Jump. This event requires you to write a haiku poem. For those who do not know, a haiku is a short poem of three lines, which have five, seven and five syllables respectively. For example:

    This is a haiku
    Five syllables then seven
    Then five once again


    The Topic: RPA

    * * * * * *

    6th April: Event 3 - 220 Word Hurdles. This event requires you to write 220 words on a specific topic. However, there is a trick! Your post must contain five instances of a chosen word - that word is the hurdle! While it is allowed to go a little over the 220 words, those who go under will be disqualified.

    The Topic: Friendship

    The Hurdle Word: Hate

    * * * * * *

    8th April: Event 4 - The Plot Put. This event requires you to write a plot summary for a film that you have just invented - the kind of summary that might be read out by a deep, dramatic voice during the film’s trailer! Minimum 100 words.

    The Title of the Film: Rebirth

    * * * * * *

    10th April: Event 5 - The Copy Throw. This event requires you to write advertising copy (an advert script). The name of the product is fixed and appears below, but beyond that it’s up to you. Perhaps it’s a movie, a TV show, a household product, or a vacation home in the Alpha Centauri system. Whatever your heart desires!

    Name of Product: Sand Shark

    * * * * * *

    12th April: Event 6 - The 400 Word Sprint. This event requires you to write 400 words on a specific topic. While it is allowed to go a little over the 400 words, those who go under will be disqualified.

    The Topic: A lie

    * * * * * *

    14th April: Event 7 - The Poetry Vault. This event requires you to write a poem with a specific title. The title is below, but how you choose to interpret it is entirely up to you. There is no minimum or maximum word count. Oh, and no haikus please; we already did those!

    The Title: Memory

    * * * * * *

    16th April: Event 8 - The 600 Word Relay. This event requires you to write six separate paragraphs, each of at least 100 words. But there’s a trick: each paragraph must pass the baton by starting with the same word that the previous one ended with! The topic of your six paragraphs is up to you, but they must be related and form a cohesive and coherent story.

    The Batons: Discover, Ruthless, Knock, Soon, Because, Answer (you may decide the order)

    * * * * * *

    18th April: Event 9 - The Character Throw. RPA is on the lookout for a new staff member. This event requires you to write an application for your favourite RP character explaining why they would be good for the job. There is no maximum word count but a minimum of 50 words is required.

    * * * * * *

    20th April: Event 10 - The 1000 Words. This is the big one! event requires you to write something. You can write a story, an essay, a poem or anything else your heart desires. While going over the 1000 word count is okay, entries which go under will be disqualified.

    The Topic: Music

    Find a tale or three or five to read but be warned. It is never easy to see where the plot may be going As the Story Crumbles
