Okay, I was at school today, ad in English we had to write a small essay in 500 words or less, and then this idea came to me.
Why not have a mini-tournament style event which focuses on the whole of URPG, not just battling. Of course, battling could be a part of it, but we could also use the new up-and-coming art section, the stories, contests, etc. If you're from pe2k, the best way to describe it would be like a mini-WAR event, but more directly involving URPG. It might be best to do this over a month or so?
Each section could have something to do with school subjects, so that it keeps with the school theme. A rushed section list, with little thought would be this:
Maybe a way of keeping track of everything is to give all participants a grade card with their grades. A quickly done one, already filled in would be like this:Art: Art Competitions - Every week, a new theme would be posted, and you have to keep within that theme. This could be further split into multiple sections like drawn art, graphics and sprite.
Drama: Contests - maybe more of an RP style; spriting could link to this where you design costumes and props, for example
English: Writing - Over the weeks, you have to post a new entry to each theme. Some of the weekly rules could change, such as write it in 2500 words or less, for a quick example.
P.E: Battling - either a small tournament (a league would work best?) or just kind of like the ladder, where anyone could battle anyone and get points.
For prizes, maybe the best overall student gets a prize, and also for every A you get you get a mart item less 5000 or less and a small cash prize?
This is quite rushed, so not everything is final atm, but yeah :s
