[CONTEST] Madness Manifest

Madness Manifest

Congratulations to Norniff, the winner of our Create-a-Contest contest. Now we get to do this winning contest for real!

And so....

Wolf wakes up on a pleasant autumn morning only to discover that things are not as they were the previous night. He is convinced he is hallucinating until someone with an equally peculiar change in their life confronts him. Coyote explains that he has aged into an old man overnight; Wolf empathizes, for he has turned into a teenager right on the cusp of shifting age. This would be an amusing happenstance if it didn't seem to have a concerning amount of permanence to it. Especially since Wolf has a mate and kids.

Elsewhere, Dog has discovered that she's turned into a rabbit and Jackal is being followed by a doppelganger who feels the need to critique him on everything he does.

And how exactly did this happen?

These characters have all been signed up for Madness Manifest!

Madness Manifest is a LASKY posting contest akin to Matchmaker where, rather than being paired with a romantic partner, characters are suffering from a reality-bending "ailment" and have a thread where it is in effect. Each character is assigned a random "ailment" and a random partner. Each ailment can be assigned to only two characters so as to prevent too much overlap, unless the amount of participants requires an adjustment to this rule. The threads that occur thereafter are then voted on in a series of categories.

And what are those categories?

  • Worst Ailment Luck
  • Most Accepting of Their Fate
  • Biggest Meltdown
  • Most Likely to Become a Recluse
  • Most Likely to Take Advantage of their Ailment

And what kinds of (potential) ailments are there?

  • Wakes up in the body of a prey-animal (capable of canine high speech)
  • Wakes up as a ghost (capable of being seen by anyone they encounter)
  • Wakes up as an inanimate object that rolls/hops/drags, etc. itself around (player decides object)
  • Wakes up with an extra pair of limbs that seem intent on doing their own thing
  • Wakes up much older than they were
  • Wakes up much younger than they were
  • Wakes up with a body of the opposite sex
  • Wakes up being followed by their own doppelganger who critiques everything they do and say
  • Wakes up having switched bodies with their assigned partner
  • Wakes up twice the size they originally were
  • Wakes up half the size they originally were
  • Wakes up as a non-Luperci OR permanently transformed into an Optime form canine, if already non-Luperci
  • Wakes up fused at the hip with their assigned partner
  • Wakes up completely hairless beside their mane in Optime form
