Battle of the Zodiac Children

Battle of the Zodiac Children

Auditions: OPEN
Audition Template: http://www.polyvore.com/battle_zodiac_children/template?id=1159480
i
Concept:
- This is a non-elimination battle group where everyone has a OC who is the daughter or son of one of the Zodiac signs. None of the children know of their deity parent, although each of them have unique abilities and personalities that set them apart. The Zodiacs have kept a great distance from their unclaimed children, although unexpectedly they appear on their child's next birthday. Why the sudden interest in their children and concern for their safety? If you want to find out then please join.
 
Rules:
- Be kind and respectful towards others.
- Be original.
- There will be a story element required, so be prepared!
- There will be around 12 rounds in this season.
- For examples and rounds, I will be using Jennifer Lawrence, as Aliona Yates, a daughter of Taurus.
- This will be a highly active group, so those who do not enter 5 rounds without notifying me of a reason why, will be removed from the group.

➳ THE 74TH ANNUAL HUNGER GAMES • A BATTLE GROUP

➳ THE 74TH ANNUAL HUNGER GAMES • A BATTLE GROUP

➳ Current Status: Reaping Stage
➳ Auditions/Reaping: Closed (Reservations for 75th Games, Open)
 
➳ Years ago, the Districts rebelled against the merciful Capitol. The following war was bloody and led to much suffering for both sides. Eventually, however, the Capitol defeated the rebels, permanently destroying District 13. However, the rest of the Districts needed to be punished for their rebellion. This is what led to the Hunger Games being created.
 
From each district, a Reaping will be held. All residents of that district between the ages of 12 and 18 will appear at the Reaping. Two names shall be chosen, one a female and the other a male. They will be taken to the Capitol, where they will be placed into an arena and forced to fight to the death with other tributes. Those who survive are gifted with a life of luxury and glamour in their home districts and in the Capitol. Those who lose the Hunger Games, die.
 
Seventy three, almost seventy four years have passed. The Hunger Games approaches once more. Enter your tribute now.
 
May the odds be ever in your favor.

➳ Track the progress: #74thHungerGames

➳ Rules:
• No copying.
• Respect the moderator and other members.
• Be active.
• No templates.

Also, no one from the books exist, just to keep this easier. Katniss and Peeta didn't exist, didn't start and uprising, and everything is as normal as it can be in this universe. If you have any questions, pm me.

OC Battle Mods Support Squad - A Community for Current and Aspiring OC Battle Group Mods!

OC Battle Mods Support Squad - A Community for Current and Aspiring OC Battle Group Mods!

The number of amazing and incredibly diverse OC battle groups that have sprung up on Polyvore over just the past year is mind-boggling, and creating and modding these groups can be an amazing experience :) BUT it can also be a bit of a challenge at times. It carries responsibilities and presents specific issues that don't come up much when modding even other types of battle groups.
 
That's where this group comes in!!! This is a place for current and aspiring mods of Polyvore OC battle groups to meet, share tips, bounce around ideas, ask for advice, advertise new projects, find co-mods for battle groups, etc.
 
This is also a place for fans and members of OC battle groups - especially if you're considering modding or co-modding one day or just want to keep track of all the amazing groups out there!
 
What sort of sets could be submitted to this, you might ask? Anything at all related to conceptualizing, setting up, and running OC battle groups is welcome here, as are general OC battle group sets. We'd love to see all your sets that share group concepts, modding advice, contest ideas, writing advice, icon and group template designs, worldbuilding tips, general encouragement for mods, etc.!!!
 
--------------------
 
Group Mods: Miranda (@decoder13) and Dear (@trulydear)
 
--------------------
 
GROUP RULES:
 
1. Always be polite and respectful to other group members, and to all fellow Polyvorians and their works/ideas/groups/etc. in general. Break this rule, and you will be removed immediately.
 
2. An "OC battle group", for the purposes of this group, is any group that:
- Is based on a story concept or group of concepts(original or based on an existing work)
- Requires members to create original characters
- Requires set and story creation focused on these OCs in order to win points in some scoring system
- Offers contests, mini-games, and/or other prompts that give members chances to win points
 
3. All types and genres of OC battle groups are celebrated here! This includes (but is by no means limited to) Selection-style battle groups, OC battle groups based on various existing works, original-concept OC battle groups, and OC battle group roleplays. We'd love for a wide variety of OC groups, group mods, and group members to be represented here :)
 
4. All sets must relate to OC battle groups and/or to their creation and management in some way. Any sets irrelevant to the topic of the group will be removed.
 
5. No copying the ideas of others. If you do draw inspiration from an idea shared here, be sure to give your muse credit for that inspiration!
 
6. HAVE FUN, and we hope this group grows into a an enjoyable and positive community for everyone involved!

AWESOME OPEN OC BATTLE GROUPS:
 
- The Owp (http://www.polyvore.com/owp_battle_group_roleplay/group.show?id=203489) - Modded by @spacevinci - NEEDS 13 MORE MEMBERS FOR CONTESTS
 
Your OCs have been invited to the royal palace of the kingdom of Owp for a competition to choose the next princes and princesses of the Owp's sacred values: Love, Purity, and Beauty. But be wary - not all is as it seems. The kingdom and its values have become horribly corrupted over the years, and a Resistance centered on Violence, Pathways (Choice), and Secrets has arisen to fight them. Will your OC be a loyal citizen of the Owp? Or will they fight against its corrupt ideals with the resistance?

Description (by @heymisstm): After a nuclear war destroyed the earth, an organization called the ERO took charge and started to put the world back together. They founded hospitals to care for people, an army to protect them, a government to create order. 300 years after the war, all seems well. But the ERO has a dark past, one which may unravel once their soldiers start questioning their leaders...

BATTLE GROUP ADOPTION INFO:
 
Sometimes, you start an OC battle group that is your pride and love and joy. Then life happens, your free time vanishes, and/or your inspiration evaporates. We at the Support Squad understand this moment from personal experience!
 
OC battle group mods who need to move on from their groups for one reason or another can contact Miranda @decoder13 or Dear @trulydear. We'll temporarily take over modding of the group and post a notice in the OC Battle Mod Support Squad "Adoption Society" that an OC battle group is in need of a good new mod who will preserve the spirit and the OC battle group nature of the group.
 
This will hopefully prevent some of those heartbreaking moments when a really cool OC battle group somehow ends up abandoned and is repurposed into a completely unrelated fashion group or something overnight!

OC BATTLE GROUP ADOPTION SOCIETY LISTINGS:
 
* The Selection Season 1: Villains Edition (http://www.polyvore.com/selection_season_villains_edition/group.show?id=200289) - Founded by @miss-belle-sutcliff
 
This Selection battle group sees 35 daughters of fictional villains competing to win the hand and the delightfully deranged heart of Billy "Knick-Knack" Napier, son of Harley Quinn and the Joker. Auditions are still fully open, and the storyline has not yet started. 15 more members are needed before contests can begin.
 
If you're interested in modding a Selection battle group like this, PM @decoder13.

* The 124th Annual Hunger Games (http://www.polyvore.com/124th_annual_hunger_games/group.show?id=204236) - Founded by @amyt1700
 
While this group began as a Hunger Games battle group, the current mod has expressed that anyone claiming this battle group can completely change the name, theme, and plot. The group currently has 10 members. If you've been wanting to start an original OC battle group for a while and would like to adopt a group that already has a few members to start out with, this might be perfect for you!
 
If you're interested in modding this group, PM @amyt1700

* Sailor Scout Academy (http://www.polyvore.com/sailor_scout_academy/group.show?id=204600) - Founded by @natasha-maree13
 
Current Group Premise (by @natasha-maree13): In the year 3045, the eight Sailor Scouts and Neo Queen Serenity are the world's only defense against hordes of creatures from outer space that are plaguing planet Earth...until young women across the world pop up with the same abilities as the scouts. To teach these girls how to use their powers, Luna and Artemis have gathered them all to one place: Sailor Scout Academy!
 
This group is a really cool OC battle group/OC battle group RP based on the Sailor Moon fandom. It's in need of 25 members to begin contests. You should probably create a new head girl if you plan to use the existing premise for the group.
 
If you're interested in modding this group, PM @decoder13.

☽ A World of My Own ☾

Welcome Polyvorians!
 
This group is for those who love to create sets that tell stories, center around fantastical ideas, express an artistic side and/or anything that showcases your imaginative creativity.
 
I see so many sets that look like magazine cutouts or fashion ads and I'd like this group to be less about mainstream trends and commercialism and more about imaginative, creative artistic expression.
