Activity Sheets

Bulk Activities - a Guide

 

Writing this up is harder than I expected, but I will do my best!

 

Effective August 17, 2022 Ketucari is now accepting Bulk Activities. There are caveats to this:

1: You can still only submit one “piece” per activity type per day. A “piece” is defined as whatever panel(s) or literature section(s) you’re choosing to submit. This will be explained in further detail later on.
2: Each Panel/Panel Cluster or Lit Section/Sections submitted is still held to a 4 max ket limit.
3: For Comics and Long Lit, each “piece” must be set in the same zone.
4: There are different activity forms when doing bulk activities.
5: For fairness’s sake this is not retroactive*
6: *Theme count is retroactive.

 

What this essentially means is:
If you do a comic, an activity sheet, or a 4000 word lit piece, you no longer need to split it across multiple deviant art pieces for submission, you can submit the full comic page/sheet/lit as one deviant art piece and tell us in the submission comment on dA and/or on Lorekeeper which particular part(s) are being rolled.

 

DEFINITIONS
Here is how we will be defining Bulk Activities:


ART PIECE DEFINITIONS

Comics- Comics are defined as: Multi-panel visual stories with or without words that have a narrative flow and may feature panels that contain only headshots or panels that contain only backgrounds. Panels may be rolled separately or in “Clusters”. Details below.

 

Activity sheets- A group of three or more individual pieces which may or may not share common themes. Must be separated by either blank space or some sort of border or frame. Unless player indicates otherwise by numbering the activities these will be assumed to be numbered left-to-right. Panels must be rolled separately. Details below.

 

LIT PIECE DEFINITIONS
Vignettes/Anthologies- Grouped lit pieces that may or may not be connected. Each “section” should have a title or a number. May be rolled separately or in “Clusters”. Details below.

 

Long Lit- Singular lit pieces over 1600 words. Often unsectioned beyond paragraph breaks (we will be requiring paragraph breaks) and thus very difficult to break into smaller chunks naturally. Word count is essentially “restarted” every 800 words, regardless of the number of ketucari present. Details below.

 

I’m going to break this into the following sections, this is going to be long, please use CTRL+F or “Find On Page” to get to the section you need to check.

HT-COMICS

How To Process Comics

Submitting Comics is done in individual panels and the contents of that individual panel, or in panel “clusters” that when combined meet the minimum group rolling requirements.

Unless stated otherwise, admins will assume Western comic flow (left-to-right) for panel numbering.

Every used “Cluster” of panels may be claimed for Themes towards Elderhood for as many separate clusters as a given ketucari is in, and each “Cluster” may be submitted for a different activity type.

Extraneous panels may NOT be used for Misc. Activities.

TL;DR

You can make multiple submissions with 1 page, by declaring which panels are part of that given submission.

Acceptable Rolling combinations:
Example 1: Panel 1 is a wide setting shot, panels 2, 3, and 5 each have one half-to-full body which may or may not have their own backgrounds and are of separate ketucari. Panel 4 is a different ketucari on a different background. Any combination of 1+[2,3,5] and 4+[2,3,5] where 2, 3, and 5 are not duplicated, can roll.

Example 2: Splash Page with a many characters and a few small cutaways: any combination of up to 4 ketucari may be collected from the page.

Example 3: Panel 1 is a travel shot with 3 fullbodies, Panel 2 is close-up with a distinct background and two rollable ketucari, Panel 3 is a separate headshot, panel 4 is another wide shot with three fullbodies: Panel 3 may be declared to be part of any of 1, 2, or 3. 1 cannot combine with 2 or 4, 2 with 1 or 4, or 4 with 1 or 2.

Some leniency may be given to physical presence in a piece if the overall story of the comic makes it clear the ketucari is fully present (i.e. reaction headshots may be accepted for full rolling with appropriate background panels, at admin discretion.)

HT-ACTIVITY SHEETS

How To Process Activity Sheets

Submitting activity sheets is done by individual panels. Panels must be visibly separated somehow. 

 

Again: Multiple submissions off of one page, but unlike with comics, no panel clusters per submission.

 

Every Panel may be claimed for Themes towards Elderhood for as many separate clusters as a given ketucari is in, and each Panel may be submitted for a different activity type.

Extraneous panels may NOT be used for Misc. Activities.

HT-VIGNETTES

How to Process Vignettes

 

Much like with comics, Vignettes may be submitted either individually or in Clusters. At least 1 Vignette in the Cluster must be a minimum of 500 words. Beyond that, total word count will be taken from the combined clusters.
For Adventures and Battles, all Vignettes in a cluster must be in the same zone.
For Quests, all Vingettes in a cluster must be of the same quest.
For Skill Unlocks, as long as all declared skills are correctly displayed they can be in any zone.

Obviously, Tarns must be of the Tarn.

 

Every used “Cluster” may be claimed for Themes towards Elderhood for as many separate clusters as a given ketucari is in, and each “Cluster” may be submitted for a different activity type.

Extraneous pieces or clusters may Not be used for Misc. Activities.

HT-LONG LIT

How to Process Long Lit

 

Personally, I like to call this one “getting the bang out of your ketucari novels”. The rules are stricter for these, and there’s no special formatting necessary like with Vignettes (any formatting you choose to do is optional).

The big BIG rule is that a ketucari must actually be present and involved in the lit in order to roll. If your lit is 4000 words long, and a ketucari is only briefly mentioned in the first 800 and then again in the last 1600, and has no impact on the overall story? Then they are only able to be rolled up to 3 times, instead of for every 800 words.
Every 800 words is +1 Theme.

The other big rule is that there is wiggle room on word-count sections: If you have 6 major characters in the first 800 words, and then four of them take a backseat or Go Elsewhere for the next 800 words, you can take the two who aren’t rolled in the first 800 words and tack them into the 800-1600 bracket if you’d like.

 

Now, to explain how the word counts actually work:
When you finish a long lit, you first figure out what your word count is: Remember Long Lit requires you to be over 1600 words. Round to the nearest 100. Divide that wordcount by 800. Every 800 words is another “section”.
Wordcount MUST be listed somewhere.
Extraneous sections over 500 but under 800 may be rolled after all other sections, for the number of ketucari they count for under normal lit rules.

When submitting, you specify which section we’re in.

Every section counts for +1 theme for all rollable (even if Not Rolled) ketucari, and can be used for rolling by up to 4 ketucari present in the piece (remember, sections are fungible)!

Again: Long Lit is divided by 800 no matter how many ketucari are present, except for any extraneous 500-700 sections at the end of a piece.
