High above the planet, Gatekeeper watched. Thick clouds and rolling rainbow energy coursed over the sphere, washed red by the light of two weak suns. This was the task he had been created to fulfill. He had already kept his vigil for over a century of this world’s time, though Time had lost its meaning as well in the Breaking. Soon though, he would be unable to watch without aid.

Gatekeeper wished to complete his other charge while he still could.

Some had survived, despite the world, despite the warping, despite the war. Some sentient creatures had been able to make Temporus their home, sheltered at the heart of Eos City in a lee of the distortions. Survival and rehabitation were theoretically possible. He couldn’t bring back those who had lived here before, but he could bring the planet back to life.

It was time.

Welcome to Libertas OCT. This is a literature-only Original Character Tournament set in the abandoned and ruined city of Eos, hosted by LadyRiverlark. Characters from all worlds and all times are being brought together in this survival mystery tournament, tossed into the middle of a power-struggle for a dead planet. At the end of the struggle, only the person on top will be able to dictate the future of Eos- if it has one at all.

This journal will have any new announcements and updates as things progress.




I checked with the finalists again. Work continues apace, but both are really busy with real life, plus super long entries. With that in mind, I'm giving them more time to write. I rather wait for excellent entries than rush the ending on this.

As such, the final round is ongoing. Details are in the round four journal. Feel free to take time to write anything you want to post as between round sorts of things too. You've got three weeks to write, with the new deadline being June 29th July 7th July 15th at 11:59PM PST, so you've got of time.

I'll be checking in with the finalists on how things are going closer to that deadline and we'll go from there.

I know I didn't get in the next round but it was still really fun. Thanks for letting me participate and I hope I'll be a stronger writer the next time....because I WILL RETURN! :P

I am really happy to hear you had fun. And honestly, thank you for writing for this. I couldn't host a tournament at all if there was no one to write for it and make it their own.

OCTs are great ways to become stronger writers. Just look at Leucrotta. She lost in round one of the first OCT she wrote in (that I'm aware of) and now, several OCTS later, she's one of the better writers in here. You've got a good start; all you need now is practice and feedback.

#OCTFollowers and #WritersOCTAlliance are good places to start for looking for new tournaments when you feel ready.

Thanks so much! I think I already found a new OCT to audition for to help hone my writing. :D

Really? Congrats and good luck then! You should let me know how it goes. I'll be rooting for you. =D

Teach me for falling off the internet XD ah well, this will still be fun to watch unfold<3

None of the original people got involved in this in the end. It'll still give me closure though and there are some really cool things already coming out of this. Have you seen the result of the Stareyed prompt yet?

Yes XD

Hey, so... I do apologize for missing all these Friday night chat meetings. I wish I could attend, but I work from before it starts till after it's over. Just wanted to let you all know I regret my absence, and that I have a legitimate reason and am not just blowing you all off. ^^;

Never thought you were. They are small gatherings anyway and hardly required. It's just nice to make a community when possible and you're good company. I'm sure you'll stop by when you can.

Same here. D: Friday night there is early Saturday morning here. By the time I wake up and get online, the chatroom always seems to be empty. T_T
