I have a few questions regarding restrictions on applicable titan and monster designs:
    [*]Do the titans and / or monsters have to be living things? Specifically, I'm wondering if automated robots would be allowed on both sides of the aisle, just one, or none.[*]Do the titans and / or monsters have to resemble living things? To clarify, I mean to ask if titans and / or monsters must look like a living thing (e.g. a dragon or a giant robot) and thus cannot look vehicular (e.g. a tank or airship).[*]How much of the titans and / or monsters must actually be seen? If I write a story from the perspective of a character who spends most of the plot hiding, and the monsters and / or titans mostly influence the plot from off-screen, would the story still be applicable?[/list]

1. We were thinking Titans = mechanical and monsters=organic for this contest, but whatever.

2. Not really; they both can look as normal or fantastical as you like. If you're imaging a monster who resembles a tank, go for it!

3. A story like that would be fine; the effects of the titans and monsters on others sounds like a cool concept. :)

It wasn't specified up front, but if you didn't adhere to this, it's fine. It's not set in stone or anything.

Well, since it does have all the information about the idea itself within the topic, sure.

You can submit all of the entries in a single post in this topic, but make sure each entry has its own topic in the relevant forums.

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

Sure, go right ahead - I think it fits in better there than anywhere else. (Unless you're making a 3D animation, in which case that would fall under Music and Movies. :))

So as a contestant rather than as a host, I actually have a question about the theme!Part of the theme is to design your own monster or titan. Would taking a 'monster' alluded to in Bionicle canon that never actually appeared in person nor got any physical description (namely Marendar) and giving it a full description/nice juicy fight scene be sufficiently original? (I may have written a short story to the main theme of Titans and Monsters involving it and then remembered the 'design your own' part and gone oh nooooooo wait I had to come up with how this thing looks/acts anyway, better check)

It happens to say in the rules:

you must design your own titan or monster and/or describe or depict part (or all!) of the fight

That "and/or" seems pretty indicative that it can be a canon monster if you describe the fight.

 

I apologize if this counts as answering a question when not on staff, but I figured quoting the topic was fine.

I would say design your own; that's what we intended to happen. You could do a redesign of the Mata Nui robot, though.
