Week 1: Covens of The Boiling Isles

The Boiling Isles is an archipelago in the Demon Realm where magic is practiced by all manner of creatures. Emperor Belos has decreed that witches and wizards must join a coven, which typically restricts the type of magic that they are able to perform. The education system requires students to commit to a magic track, raising the youth to specialize in magic that aligns with one of the nine major covens of the isles.

To meet this challenge, your video must have a theme that demonstrates the magic of one of the nine covens.

  • Abomination Coven - Features golems, constructs, and other controllable automatons
  • Bard Coven - Manipulation of the world using sound, most likely using musical instruments
  • Beast Keeping Coven - Summoning and command of animals of the world
  • Construction Coven - Building with earth; crafting pillars, structures, and statues.
  • Healing Coven - Treatment of injuries and ailments, create shields
  • Illusion Coven - Creation of clones, altering appearances, and tricking others' senses
  • Oracle Coven - Fortune telling, spirits, and seeing the future
  • Plant Coven - Command of plants and creation of flora
  • Potions Coven - Focus on potions, liquids, and brewing of all types

The video does not need to contain magic directly, but the video’s theme should align with a specific coven. Blending of multiple covens is not permitted—The Emperor’s Coven is not an option.

Example videos that satisfy the theme: by BecauseImBored1 (clones, like the Illusion coven), by Honou Productions (Lantis) (sound, like the Bard coven)

Week 2: 20th Century Time Capsule

Nostalgia is a powerful motivator. When we see a movie that we loved as a kid, or hear a song that our parents always used to play, rosy retrospection can cause us to happily recall moments past. Other times, we can experience sadness and loss for times that have gone by that can never be experienced again. The 20th century holds a wealth of music, television, and film that could make us, our parents, or possibly our grandparents think about times gone by.

To meet this challenge, your video must have at least one element (the song, the source, or both) that originates from the years 1901-2000. The year is determined by the release date in the country of origin, e.g. Japanese anime release date in Japan, not when it was brought to the US.

Example videos that satisfy the theme: by Synaesthesia Productions, by Rider4Z

If a TV show has multiple seasons, only content that aired during or prior to the year 2000 should be used (one exception is if a season started in 2000 but ended in 2001).
If a song cover was produced after 2000, it is not eligible even if the original aired before 2001.

Week 3: Spectacular Settings

Some shows and movies are immediately able to immerse you in a fantastical world. Stunning vistas and intricate details bring strange places to life, making you feel like you are actually there. Good worldbuilding brings the viewer a sense of wonder. Whether the implications of a setting are wonderful or terrifying, good worldbuilding has viewers begging to learn more.

To meet this challenge, your video should focus on the scenery or setting of a show rather than characters or plot elements. The viewer should feel immersed in a location or an era. A stunning world or vibrant city should feature prominently.

Week 4: The 7 Deadly Sins

As Thanksgiving approaches for those of us in the United States, we start to think of the things in life for which we are thankful. We also start thinking about food, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and drifting off into a food coma. Gluttony may be the primary theme of a great Thanksgiving, but it is only one of the deadly sins described by theology. Originally proposed by 4th century philosophers, the 7 Deadly Sins are described as such in the modern era:

  • Pride - arrogance, hubris, believing that one is the best, looking down at others and treating them like they are beneath you
  • Lust - physical desire that may approach obsession, typically for a person but it is possible to lust for other items or objects
  • Wrath - excessive anger, especially when acted upon; hurting others, revenge, or oppression of the weak with force
  • Greed - desire for excess, typically physical objects or money; the act of amassing things whether they have use
  • Envy - jealousy, wanting things that other people have; seeing another's physical wealth or traits and being frustrated that they are better
  • Sloth - laziness in all its forms; willful inaction, excessive sleeping, acting slowly or sluggishly
  • Gluttony - overindulgence, typically in food and drink; continuing to consume long after one should have stopped.

To meet this challenge, your video should leverage one of these vices. Whether a character profile of a person who typifies the vice or a situation exploring it, it should be obvious to the viewer which vice is being demonstrated by the video.

REMEMBER! The video must meet the server’s PG-13 rating, so graphic depictions of sex or violence are not permitted in any video.
