The Contest

According to Wikipedia, an exquisite corpse “is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule… or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.” In this case, we’re challenging you to write an exquisite SCorPse: you will enter an Object Class, then write Containment Procedures for someone else’s Object Class, and then write a Description for someone else’s Object Class bolted to yet someone else’s Containment Procedures.
And you won’t know what you’re getting until you get it.

The Rules

Phase 0

Phase 1

Phase 2

In summary:

  • To enter the contest, post in the discussion page with an object class. Safe, Euclid, Keter, Thaumiel, Explained, Neutralized only.
  • In about two weeks, you'll get someone's object class. You'll have two weeks to write containment procedures for it, which you will submit to A Random DayA Random Day or ProcyonLotorProcyonLotor directly via Wikidot PM.
  • After all the containment procedures are submitted, you'll get someone's object class and someone else's containment procedures. You'll have three weeks to write a description for that and post it on the site as an article.
  • You may still post an article with your assigned containment procedures after the posting period closes, but they will not be considered contest entries.
