Well, as of today, BronyTale is a whole year old! It's certainly been very exciting and Flutter and I would like to thank you for taking part.
To say thank you, and partly to see in a new era for BronyTale, we'd like to announce our mascot contest!
BronyTale is about having the freedom to make your roleplaying experience exactly what you want. We strive to make each and every member comfortable—we don’t burden you with excessive rules or restrictions on the sort of character you can make, and we would like our new mascot to reflect that same free spirit.
Now, by the same token, we are not interested in putting a huge number of restrictions on you for this contest. Such restrictions would stifle your creativity and, honestly, that is the last thing we want to do. Every competition needs some rules, however, and we are going to establish just a few basic ones.
So, BronyTale’s new mascot must…
>be an Earth pony, pegasus, or unicorn (no alicorns, zebras, or other species)
>have a cutie mark that is in some way fitting (note that you don’t need to make it the ProBoards logo, or a pen and paper, or anything like that—we just don’t want something entirely out of left field, like a monkey peeling a banana)
>no images directly from a pony creator. You may use a pony creator for ideas, but we're looking for creativity not just matching body parts.
We would also encourage you to use brighter colors, but ponies in darker hues will not be rejected, and will be judged by the same criteria as their brighter brethren.
You don't need to be an artist to enter - copying a pony creator pony onto paper or re-drawing digitally is okay. We'd just like to avoid a deluge of five minute creations.
Please enter by emailing your entry to bobdat @ hotmail . co.uk or contacting me at that address to arrange some other form of submission.
The grand prize for the winner (apart from seeing their creation adopted as BronyTale's official mascot), will be a custom of their newly-created pony. So make a really good effort, we're looking forward to some really fantastic entries.
Finally, we'd like to announce some upcoming changes to BronyTale. Firstly, the current roleplay will be condensed into a single board, named 'Equestria'. Along side this, we're going to open two new boards; 'Hayborian Age' for renaissance/medieval age roleplay, combat and questing, and 'Free Play' for those ponies who live in the future or in space, or just about anything else. Look for these exciting new boards to open very soon.
Once again, thank you for being a member of BronyTale!
