> #**Welcome to the Kai'Sa Champion Auditions!**
This thread should be self-explanatory, but for those of you who are new to the process, let me break it down. First, please start by reading the guidelines linked above. That will help explain the process a little better. Assuming you've already done that, I'll cut to the chase. This is where the magic will happen. "Smurf" accounts that want to have a chance to portray Kai'Sa will post in this thread, announcing their intent to compete. They will then be listed in the main post here.
Once we have a list of the candidates, we will go about the audition, voting, and judging process. Rather than cluttering the forums with multiple threads, the gathering of applicants will be done in this thread, as well as the submissions. When we're sure we have all the applicants, the process of submissions can begin. For ease, please post all Questions/tasks together in a single post for your audition if possible. This will make it much easier to keep track of all the submissions. As they come in, we'll attempt to link them next to the names of the applicants for easy access.
The questions and tasks for the auditions can be seen below, so prospective applicants can get their creative juices flowing or even start working on their submissions before they can submit them. However, please don't submit early. The status of the auditions will be updated as time goes along, so check back now and again to see how we're progressing!
The Void is about survival, evolution, untapped change and entropy. It's a place of horrors that is ever-changing, never constant, and laws and realities that would fracture all but the most stable and strong of minds. So, the question remains, how did a little girl like Kaisa manage to survive there? For years on end, Kaisa struggled to survive, eating whatever she could merely to survive. But, these experiences build character, shape who she is, and who she became... That's where this task comes in.
Your task is to write us a story of one of one of Kaisa's adventures, before she became known as Kai'Sa. Show us the little girl who became the woman that both protects the people, and is demonized by them. What story you tell will show us how these experiences shaped her. About 500 words should do for minimum length, but feel free to go bigger if you like. Let this be an insight into how you see Kai'Sa, her personality, and abilities, and let this story give us a peek into how you'll be using this to give her portrayal more depth and character!
Kai'sa has lots to say about the Void and Void Champions. That's expected. But what she surprisingly has little to say about is Kassadin, her father. So, rather than saying more about what we already know, your job for this task will be very simple.
Your task is to write at least a paragraph or so each for Kassadin, and three other different champions. Doesn't matter which three! The only rule is that it should be someone you would like to have Kai'Sa visit, and it can't be one of the Void champions she already makes a comment about. What does she like about them? What doesn't she like about them? What needs an adjustment? How does she feel about them as a whole? These should be written in her own words. **In total, that's 4 champions, and 4 paragraphs, one for each!** Use these paragraphs to illustrate how Kai'Sa sees the world and the people living within it.
Kai'Sa is an interesting story in that she mirrors some very strong female characters that have come before her, one of the most famous being Samus Aran from the Metroid series. She's not your typical character either in that she's very focussed on dealing with the Void in-particular, meaning she likely won't travel too far from Shurima. That being said, what draws you to Kai'Sa as a roleplayer, and how do you intend to make the most of her brand of interaction? What are your plans for her, and what would you love to do with her?
Now, clearly, this is a bonus segment, but I would suggest going through the difficulty to prepare it. The more material the community and the judges have, the more accurately they can vote for their opinion of most accurate portrayal. As a bonus question, this doesn't have to be as long as the other submissions, but this is a look into how you want others to see Kai'Sa in your portrayal, a look into your own headcanon for them, and how YOU see them, so the more material and insight the better!
Good luck to all our competitors!
