Your team will write a collaborative, objective-based fiction in the regular format described in Run-on guidelines, however, each Phase you will be given a new set of objectives to complete. The objectives will be simple, direct and to the point, but the way you achieve them is completely up to your team.

Details about each objective and the enemies you may encounter will be posted on your Team threads as well as the Objective-Based Team Fiction wiki page

Format and Phases: Explanation

While this is technically a Run-on, you are required to complete the objectives in a creative but focused way. The event is made to be intense and fast paces for this purpose. Read the rules clearly.

This event is split into Phases. Starting and ending dates are explained below:

  • Phase I begins on October 14th and ends on October 28th (two (2) weeks)

  • Phase II begins on October 29th and ends on November 11th (two (2) weeks)

  • Phase III begins on November 12th and ends on November 19th (one (1) week)

Objectives: Explanation

At the beginning of Phase I, Phase II and Phase III your team will be given three different objectives to choose from: a Revenge path, a Sabotage path and a Pacifist path.

Your team may choose only one (1) objective to complete.

Your team will have until the end of each Phase to reach the objective and accomplish it through any means at your disposal (i.e. you will have two (2) weeks for Phase I objectives, two (2) weeks for Phase II objectives and one (1) week for Phase III objectives).

If you do not finish an objective by the end of its respective Phase your team will simply receive the objectives for the next Phase without closure of the previous Phase. Only teams who finish objectives for all three Phases will be considered for placement. Participation credit will still count if you have completed the necessary minimum described below.

Your choices may influence the overall story of the Rite of Supremacy. The Path that is most selected from the three will be considered canonical.
