    Default [EVENT] The Fifth Gate

    THE FIFTH GATE

    Dear Fan Fiction forum,

    You have been chosen for an experiment—a game, in other words. If you wish to play, read below.

    How to Play
    1. To begin, send a message to RABBIT stating your intent to play. RABBIT may be contacted through this account.
    2. RABBIT will send you the rules of each round. These rules contain specific tasks directly related to certain aspects of participating on this forum. You must complete these tasks in order to unlock the round’s gate. There are five gates in all and thus five rounds. However, to participate in the fifth round, you must participate in at least one of the first four. You do not have to participate in all four of the first rounds to participate in the fifth, but as the rounds will grow increasingly difficult, it is in your best interest to do so.
    3. Once completed, send evidence of your success to RABBIT. If you are the first to succeed at your task, you will be rewarded, and the round will conclude with the announcement that the active gate has been opened.
    4. After the completion of a round, there will be a brief period of inactivity before the next round begins. These periods of inactivity will never be the same. Thus, pay attention to this thread and the forum announcements if you wish to participate in the next round.


    The Five Commandments
    1. Under no circumstances are you allowed to reveal that you are participating in a game until the active game is complete. Anyone may participate, and participation may not be obvious. Additionally, due to the nature of the fifth round, it is in your best interest to keep your identity a secret. Revealing that you are participating will result in your forfeiture of that round.
    2. Under no circumstances are you allowed to reveal that you have won a round until the fifth gate has been unlocked. Revealing that you are participating will result in the forfeiture of your advantages in the fifth and final round.
    3. Under no circumstances are you allowed to share or discuss the message containing your instructions from RABBIT with anyone but RABBIT. You may not reveal its contents to anyone. The message may differ from player to player. It is in your best interest to keep yours a secret to avoid giving others the advantage over you.
    4. Each round will contain its own set of rules. You must follow them, in addition to the rules of the forum. Violations to the rules of the round or the forum rules may hinder your ability to unlock the active gate before another player.
    5. Your proof of success must be in the form of a private message directly to RABBIT. Additionally, all correspondence, including questions, must be done in the form of a private message directly to RABBIT. All visitor messages and threads will be ignored, and this thread will be locked for the duration of the game. Please note that due to the secrecy of this game, not all correspondence will receive a reply. You are only guaranteed a response if you are the winner of a round.


    Prizes
    • The winners of each of the first four rounds will receive a key and an excerpt from a story. The key will be in the form of a Pokémon related to the round. It is also symbolic; you do not need it to unlock and win the fifth round.
    • Consolation prizes in the form of one line of the aforementioned story will be sent to all players who have failed to unlock the active gate.
    • All of the key holders for the first four rounds will receive certain advantages in the fifth round. It is in your best interest, then, to win more than one of the first four rounds in order to prevent your fellow players from receiving these advantages in the fifth.
    • The player who unlocks the fifth gate by completing the fifth round will receive a final treasure: shiny forms of the four keys, a special Pokémon, the conclusion of the story, and a fourth, secret prize. This player will be the only one who will receive the ending of the story; no consolation prizes will be awarded in this round.


    That is all.

    We await your reply.

    The first round has concluded. The FIRE GATE is OPEN.

    If you did not succeed in completing this round, please stand by in the coming weeks to receive your consolation prize.

    If you have succeeded in completing this round, please follow the instructions RABBIT has sent you to claim Fire's Key.

    For all those above and those not mentioned, please wait for the second round. It will be coming soon.
