THIS CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY OVER. SEE DISCUSSION FOR WINNERS.
Alright, welcome to my new contest (essentially an interim contest until I can think of a new build contest idea). Here's how this one works. There are two categories.
The first category is for joke skills. They will be judged on how funny they are, but, note that a ridiculously overpowered skill may not be as funny as a skill like Wrath of Skuld which has the value of being an inside joke. Other things beyond the skill itself will also effect the score, like the image and the name.
The second category is for realistic skills. These are skills that do not exist but that you think should. They may be elite, non-elite, whatever, however, they must be for an existing profession and must be linked to an existing attribute (or unlinked as the case may be). These will be judged on creativity, how well it would work, how realistic it is (i.e. is it balanced, does it make sense), etc. Like my last contest, finalists will be chosen by me (I will make a new grading rubric) and then we will have votes open to the public which will influence who the actual winner is. Both categories will have an individual set of finalists and winner(s).
A couple of other things. You must have a skill icon. You must create a page for the skill. Assuming it is linked, you need a progression table. Essentially, you should treat these like you were creating an article for a real skill, although, obviously, these should be in your user space. And, you may use an existing page or skill that you created at a previous date, however, if you choose to use an old one, you may lose points on creativity, but, if you already came up with the best skill or the funniest skill, then feel free to submit it.
To sign up, add your name below to the appropriate category, and, once you have made the page, add the link to this page. You may add as many as you wish to either category, but quality is much more important than quantity, and I reserve the right to not look at or take points away from submissions created by people who try to flood this section. Note that only registered users will be allowed to participate. Good Luck!
