Void usually has several events during the year. Over the years, many tournaments have become staples of the site. These large tournaments will be scheduled by the site admins, but we also encourage users to create their own tournaments.
Tournaments will be announced on the site, so make sure to check for upcoming events. Tournament participation is usually open to all members with an approved character, but sometimes there are special requirements. In some instances, members will be barred from tournament participation if they have a bad recent record of turning in unfinished work. This is to ensure all participants get a fair match up.
Creating your own tournament
First, please read the tournament schedule thread here . We are very open to ideas, we just need to make sure that your tournament idea does not conflict with any other major event or violate the rules in any way. You MUST submit your tournament for review before it can be posted.
Please submit this information to us:

Petition List: <- this is a new request; ideally you’ve spoken about this tournament idea with other members and some are on board for it should it be approved. Write here the list of members who are likely ready to join the tournament when sign ups begin. As you’d assume, the more people on this list, the confident we are of the idea’s popularity and hype, but even as few as 3 is enough to consider
Send this form via DM or PM to Pyras Terran or email firstname.lastname@example.org and the staff will review it. Whenever new additions to the schedule come up we will alert the community on this thread and on discord.
Common Tournament Types
Speed Death Tournament
For a death tournament, members are able to submit new characters, often with only a design sheet. These chcaracters will face in successive rounds of death matches, until only one is left alive, winning the right to go on as a regular character.
The Speed Death Tournament, the most common format of Death Tournament, is as above, but all rounds last a single week.
The Light speed death tournament has a drawing time of three days and a voting time of four days, making it the faster body churner.
A number of participants, usually 6 or 8, all compete against each other in a massive match. Occasionally, these will be themed or set as scar matches, where the winner scars all other participants.
A competition over a number of rounds, with different themes and conditions. The winner often gets a custom title.
6 Defenders collaborate to take down the Threat. This is often a 6 vs 1 or 6 vs 2. The Threat is always a monster or villain that is seeking destruction, and the defenders must try to defeat them. A loss for the Threat means death, and a loss for a defender usually means a short period of forced retirement.
The toughest, hardest, cutest artists fight for the crown. The winner becomes Heavyweight Champion, a title which must be defended yearly by participating in regular matches. If the Champion were to lose a match, the winner steals the crown.
Get a friend and get rolling, a tournament like others, but this time two artists with enter their respective characters as a team to win it all.
Under New Management
Artists sign up with their character, rounds proceed normally, except the character you us during the length of the tournament is one another contestant has submitted. Character swap!
Month of the Dead
During October, the dead characters are allowed a chance to play once more. They return to their graves after the magical month has passed. There may be certain restrictions for entering tournaments with dead characters, so check individual tournament rules to be sure.
An open invitation is a seldom held event where new artists are encouraged to make a character. The requirement for intro pages is lifted for anyone who does not currently have a living character. Matches are 1 vs 1, regular battles and serve as an introduction to the site.
