2014 Chocobo Races - Team Registration!

We're happy to announce that the 2014 round of Chocobo Races is open for team registration!

Not sure what Chocobo Races is? You can look here for an in-depth explanation. In a kupo-nutshell: Sign up for a team; fill prompts and get points for your team; repeat monthly with special bonus themes for extra points; the highest-scoring team next March wins the round!

We're going old-school this year and switching back to our two-team setup:



At the bottom of this entry are two comments - one for each team. To officially sign up for the Chocobo Races, reply to the comment for the team you want to join. It's okay if you don't have a Dreamwidth! You can comment using your Livejournal, using an OpenID, or simply use an anonymous comment to leave us your information. It's just a lot easier for the mod team to only have to look in one place to get our current team rosters.

When you comment to sign up, please leave the following info in your comment so that we can recognize your work and give it points!



A couple other notes on Chocobo Races sign-ups:

  • Feel free to sign up for whatever team you want to be on! They're both open and you don't have to 'know' a mod to join!

  • That being said, please try your best to make sure teams are evenly distributed. We'd hate to have 1000 Needles Cactuars and only a handful of Tonberries, however formidable that handful may be.

  • Signing up doesn't commit you to anything, so if you're on the fence but interested, sign up anyway!

  • You can sign up at any point during the round! Just remember, we won't be able to count your work for points unless your sign-up is dated before your posted work. This is why, if you think there's any chance you'll want to participate later, it's a good idea to sign up now.


Get ready – the 2014 Chocobo Races are about to begin…!


TEAM CACTUAR



TEAM TONBERRY


Feel free to use the banners above to spread the word and enlist others for your team!

For those of you who are really excited, we've technically already spoiled the first round’s theme - during the month of September, you’ll earn bonus points for filling any prompts in our database. Start looking through and collecting ideas: we'll officially open the round in a few days!

Additional comments: I'm only picking this team because when the two creatures were namedropped as Archadian war machines at the start of FFXII, Tonberry sounded cooler in the Archadian soldier's accent! :D
