HDC Idol II 2011-2012

HDC & NEVERENDING WONDER'S OCTOBERFEST - HALLOWEEN RADIO EXTRAVAGANZA PROUDLY PRESENT



II


Good morning everyone,

I welcome you all to HDC Idol II 2011-12. Over the next few weeks, we will again start the hunt for the solitary HDC Superstar who has the will, wit, skills, resources and knowledge to be a potential HDC celebrity in his/her own right. That HDCian will be crowned as HDC Idol II Superstar 2011-12, and will join our previous winner, CHRONOGRL, on the HDC Idol Hall Of Fame.

But first, the details.

The deadline for closure of accepting confirmations ends at 24 hours from now. Most of you are unfamiliar with the events which will start in the coming days - the tests, the challenges, the twists, all of which add to the drama of eliminations, wildcards, etc. I will explain everything as they keep coming.


This year, a Super Grand Prize has been announced by our very own Doc Faustus for the HDC Idol II winner. It includes :-

1.)an interview in the second issue of Doc's ezine Nuckelavee

2.)Free critique of the winner's first script/novella/short story

3.)Free PDFs of Doc's entire back catalogue

4.) A signed copy of Doc's next book when it comes out.

5.) Free participation in Doc's next workshop. (Not the October one.)



Let's have a look at the groups under which the confirmed participants (till now) find themselves in.


Here are...



THE OGRES


  • Despare
  • Roshiq
  • Zombieness
  • Fortunato
  • Leezuki
  • Fearsonarms


AND


THE GOBLINS


  • The Return
  • Nightmare of Death
  • Ferretchucker
  • The Villain
  • Horrorzack
  • Chronogrl


Take a real close look at the groups you find yourselves in, contestants. Each one of the members listed in your group is YOUR IMMEDIATE OPPONENT. Because, you have to score over the rest in your group and finish in the TOP THREE to be guaranteed a spot in the next Round.

Now, go through the most important list for all of you...

THE RULES!!



Rules For HDC Idol 2011-12

01 - You are responsible for your actions, and your actions only. The group will NOT be held guilty or punishable for anything which you do. The sole purpose of you being a part of the group is to fight your way into the TOP THREE contention, for passage into the next Round.

02 - Each test will involve a lot of skill, patience, knowledge and wit. It is up to you to give each test your best effort - however if you use your cunning, manipulation, and the internet as research for your answers, you are permitted to do so.

03 - All of you will be under the stern gazes of your Judges, and their decision will be FINAL and BINDING. No contestant is allowed to question the judgement of any Judge, or challenge their integrity. The Judges will be fair, impartial and very strict.

04 - Over the course of the event, if you indulge in any sort of skirmishes, flaming wars, name-calling etc. with a contestant or contestants, then it will not be the liability of HDC Idol II or any of its Judges. We suggest you take it to PMs, or emails, and not cause unnecessary harassment to other contestants and derail the thread.

05 - At the end of the first THREE Rounds, all the scores of each contestant in each group will be added up. The Top THREE winners of each group will then advance on to the Individual Challenges, who will be joined by TWO wildcard contestants, who will be selected from the losing contestants of both groups.

06 - The decision to give all losing contestants one more chance depends solely on the discretion of the Judges and the host sponsors only.

07 - We will have a wonderful time in our quest to finding the winner, that's a promise. All of you are urged to take your wins and losses in the right spirit, and keep the sportsmanship spirit alive. You will enjoy HDC Idol II.


The Judges will be revealed once the deadline for final confirmations is up within the next 24 hours starting from now. I ask the Ogres to be prepared for their first test by then.


I NOW DECLARE HDC IDOL II 2011-2012 OPEN!!!

I'm definitely IN (though will be out of town this Thursday evening - next Monday... Up in the mountains of Maine, so probably no cell service... If that disqualifies me, so be it, but I just wanted to put it out there... Since I unknowingly screwed people last time I went on vacation during one of these contests). :o

Also - Goblins...

Considering this is a holiday weekend in the U.S., there's probably going to be a few people that have plans to go away. Have a good weekend!

You're going down faster than a hooker in Bill Clinton's oval office.
