London, Victorian era. A newspaper headline reads: Egil Scourgestein, renowned inventor, traveler and collector of rare artifacts, dies at 81. The article goes on to say that the entirety of his estate was given to his only living relative, a niece named Beatrice. What the article doesn't say is that Beatrice did not inherit everything. A single object has eluded her--Egil's final invention, an irreplaceable cure-all, of which only one dose will ever exist. And who inherited this special elixer? Beatrice doesn't know yet. It goes to the winner of a fighting tournament, in which several of Egil's friends from across the world will participate. This was Egil's final wish, though Beatrice and the precious few associated with her aren't sure of his sanity when he wrote it into the will.
Thus, a tournament the likes of which London has never seen begins.


UPDATE: Oh gosh, thanks to all of you for your support! That really means a lot to me.  what can I say, you guys are the sweetest <3  Anyway, good news! one of the judges is going to take over this OCT, and I have a lot of faith that they'll do a good job with it.  I'll make a journal first thing tomorrow when I can get back to my computer and off mobile.  thanks again c:

I'll be honest--it's been a year since I started this, and this OCT looks like it's never going to get off the ground.  I admit, this is my fault--I haven't been a good host, between some mental health stuff and leaving the group to rot for months.  I was trying to design an OCT I would enjoy, but it seems that the appeal hasn't been as wide as I was hoping.  I really am, truly, from-the-bottom-of-my-heart grateful to those who finished or even started their auditions, who showed any excitement for this little idea of mine.  You guys are all fantastic and I hate to see all your hard work go to waste because of my poor planning.  

I've thought about trying to renew the OCT.  However, if I'm being honest with myself, I'm not capable of it.  I've been horrible about being consistently present to run this thing, and I know that's something I can't change right now, as the reasons for my absences are beyond my control at the moment.  That, and it has been over a year since I first put this out there, which seems like a pretty bad omen for the future of the OCT.

But seriously, I am very sorry to all of you.  A lot of work has been put into this thing by a lot of talented artists, and I'm very unhappy to see that go to waste.  I know what it's like to work that hard on something, only to have it turn up nothing in the end, and I'm eternally sorry to anyone who has to go through that now, on account of this OCT.  You guys worked hard and definitely deserve to compete, and I've loved seeing everything you've put into this group.  That's been the best part of this for me, seeing all of your creativity!  It's really fantastic and you all should be very proud of yourselves :)

Again, I'm very sorry about all this.  I realize I've basically been a huge waste of time.  I thought I'd done the research and set up something enjoyable, but clearly something went wrong along the way.  But, I do take full credit for whatever caused it to fail, and I wish better luck to future OCT hosts.  

And to all the contestants--you guys are freaking amazing.  OCTs are hard work, and having people who actually thought I'd come up with a good idea and wanted to participate in it is awesome.  I really wish it had worked out for you and I could have set up the awesome tournament you deserve.  It's been so cool reading entries and seeing peoples' interpretations of this idea, turning it into something super cool.  Again, you're all fantastic.

Stay inspired.

Unfortunately, no, this group is long dead and has no one to really run it anymore due to past irl issues. We appreciate your interest, but I do not see a revival of the group happening in the near future.

Because of lack of response I am removing your listing. Should you want to repost in the future please feel free to contact us!

Hello from OCTFollowers! It's time for spring cleaning!

I've noticed you still have an ad with us. Is this group still active? If so, would you us to move you're ad over to the-OCT-list? You're other option would be to let us delete your ad for now, and resubmit to either group when you're ready (we'll be moving listings back to OCTF in the future, after I've cleaned it up!) Please get back to me as soon as you can, thanks :)
