The artist forfeits design rights to said character design upon submission as a Clash entry. Submissions of image(s) containing character designs intended for two or more opponents must have all designs clearly labelled with the intended recipients, or the submission may be discarded as an entry.
Character design submissions will be counted for points as any other character submission.
For the comfort and safety of other participants we ask that you add content warning tags (as applicable) to your characters and posts. A sample list of what content we would like people to tag for is below.
What we mean by 'tagging your posts' is literally tagging them as per our post-tagging system (you can find out how to do that here), as well as including them in the body of your post somewhere appropriate, such as with a profile or character. Tags for content must also be placed directly before any links that contain content worthy of warning if linking to external sites.
Everyone is welcome to post whatever content they like, and likewise can list what content they do and do not consent to receiving.
Please respect other participants and do not create content for them they have explicitly stated they do NOT want to receive. We encourage communication so please ask your 'victim' if you aren't sure what content they would like, or simply don't create it unless explicitly listed.
Please at least warn for the following content:
Dead Dove content such as underage, incest, bestiality, non-con, gore, vore, etc
Triggering content such as self harm, eating disorders, drug use, etc
Hateful content such as Nazi imagery, racism, homophobia, transphobia, etc.
This list is not exhaustive and Mods may as you to add additional content warnings if we feel it is necessary.
When in doubt, it's best to add tags for anything you think of. It will always be better to list warnings you're unsure about than leave them out.
What content is allowed?
We allow all fictional content.
I signed up and it says I'm banned! Why am I banned?
If you have just signed up, you're not actually banned. Our forums are only accessible to someone with a Verified role, however if you have no roles at all then our forums think you have been banned. You will get full access to the site when a Mod is able to verify your account.
Your verified role will be automatically removed after 4 weeks of inactivity. Manual re-verification will be required!
How can I be re-verified if I've been inactive?
Why do you check social media accounts?
In order to prevent spam, trolls, and people otherwise looking to cause harm to our community, we ask people to provide a social media link so we can do a brief check to make sure your values align with ours. We prefer accounts which are more personal instead of galleries as we're not here to judge your skill or your content, but rather just get an idea of who you are as a person. If your social media account is empty, locked, or private, we cannot verify you.
I'm inactive on social media, can I still join?
If you're not very active on social media but would still like to take part in our event and join our forum, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're more than happy to have a chat with you to check you've read our rules and understand our policies.
Can I post [insert kink here]?
All content is allowed but please list the warnings in the subject line of your post for topics that involve common trigger warnings or sensitive themes.
Can I post a [Nazi/racist/ableist/etc] character?
We allow all content in a fictional context. We do not agree with the glorification of such acts and ask that these subjects are handled with common sense and caution, as well as posted with appropriate tags and warnings.
Can I post a character who is original but is set in a fandom world?
Yes, as long as the character is not a canon character. This includes customisable player characters in MMOs or similar games.
Aether/Lumine from Genshin Impact would not be allowed as they are canon characters, even if the player acts as them and can name them.
The Warrior of Light from Final Fantasy XIV is allowed as it is a fully customisable character you can create.
Red from Pokemon is a canon character, but your Pokemon trainer who may be based on him would be their own character.
Can I post a character who is based off of a canon character but isn't actually canon?
Yes, as long as the character is not actually the canon character, and can be easily separated from the canon character in question. You're welcome to bring out characters who are 'inspired by' canon characters but ultimately are their own character, including kinsonas/fictives/etc.
Can I ask people to "design me a character" as a prompt?
Yes! Points for the attacker will be counted as with any other standard character (ie, counted as Enemy or Friendly points depending on the target). All rights to the design are transferred to the opponent upon submission of the attack.
Do I have to make a Character Hub to take part?
Nope! You're welcome to join the event and just attack other participants without posting up 'victims' of your own. The only requirements for joining in with events is signing up for a team and posting your submissions in the counting thread.
Where can I upload images to use for my characters?
