About Unusual Creatures

The aim of these contests are to help members reach deep down to their creativity banks and come up with a totally strange, bizarre and very unusual creature and then find a way to place them in a strange or unusual scene or predicament. Entries will be judged on originality, detail to the set theme or task, and style of writing.

Maybe you'd even like to take a stab on drawing your unusual creature too! Though no extra points will be given, but it would certainly give us all something more to look at.

Unusual Creatures Contest Line-up

Stage 1: Creature Creation - Closed!
Creation of your unusual creature!
This part of the contest is closed, but remember if you want to take part in the later stages you still have to create an unusual creature!

Stage 2: Unusual Territory - Closed!
UCC Unusual Territory
You have your creature now place it in a proposed unusual scene; can you manage your creature in someone else’s territory?

Stage 3: A weird Predicament - OPEN!
UCC A weird Predicament
Phew! You managed to get through the unusual territory, but now something bizarre is about to happen, how will it affect your unusual creature?

Stage 4: The Showdown!
The showdown, you have got this far, but can you handle the final showdown of the UCC.

2006-06-08 [Font]: Stage 3 is now open!

2006-06-08 [RiddleRose]: and how exciting it is!!! i'll have to think about this one!!! btw, can this be a kind of second chapter? can i continue from where i left off? (and keep using my other two chars... telling it from their point of view)?

2006-06-08 [Font]: Yes of course, you must use your original creature, and you can most certainly carry on from where you left off. Ideally each participant should have an entry into each Stage so that it can follow through.

2006-06-08 [RiddleRose]: excellent. i like my lisa character... ^_^
