Nice entry Hetros, though I feel the need to point out that the sightless can use magic too, just not as well. I think your entry would strengthened with more ties to Raveran in particular.

Funny thing I was also thinking of using a kirisu biting its own tail for the symbol of my clan entry before settling on a scorpion theme. Funny coincidence, huh?

Can we submit to multiple categories?

I was under the impression that a submission had to have all three parts... *eek* *doh*

So no, entries need only be in ONE category.

2. What would be the appropriate term for the leader of of a Raveran based clan?

1. Yes and yes.
2. Illhar. That is the generic term for the leader of a non-great clan :)

It doesn't have to, but it makes sense to submit for all three if one can, as a clan would have a location and perhaps related events. It's fine to only submit to one category, too :)

I was mulling over this for a bit, because it didn't seem right, and decided to go to the source itself. Sightless cannot use mana arts. If it says otherwise anywhere in here, please let me know so I can correct it.

Ah, ok then.

If I submit to all three, is there a possibility to win in one category in not in others, or do they have to pass together?

Well, the audiobooks are canon and in Feast of the Blind a sightless known as the Spirit Eater used some anti-summon ability that is presumably magic, though I guess you could argue it is an innate ability and not an art.

And there is that scourge with the face changing mask - doesn't he use shadow magic to sneak up on the Kyrol? And considering how elves look down on goblins, how would a sightless get such a rank without being able to use magic.

But I guess if the source says otherwise, then I am mistaken.

Do an event or location entry, they should only take five days (one brainstorming, two execution, two proofreading).

That depends - if you submit a Clan, a Location (the clan's home), and an Event (something that the clan did in Raveran), but the Clan doesn't win, then it doesn't make much sense for the Location and Event to be included, unless they can be edited to not involve the Clan. It'll be looked at on a case by case basis :)

You'd have to ask Kern to be sure (and I may), but I would guess the xuile'solen have some innate abilities that don't count as mana arts. It could simply be that unspecified "anti-magic" ability that we don't know much about. Summons are just ether, after all.

As for the standing of a sightless in drow society - they are still far above the goblins. They're still fae, and they are the offspring of drow. As far as I know the xuile'solen in that chapter just snuck up on the drowussu, without aid of magic.

Pariel wrote:Are dokkalfar allowed this time, unlike the last one?

Where would they come from? My initial response to that is: No, unless you have a damned good reason for including one.

I would just like to say that I have personally decided to play as a member of at least one of the clans that have been entered. All of these are incredibly awesome; it would be a horrendous shame if any of these entries fell by the way side.

WHO WILL JOIN ME?!!
