Just a quick update to answer some queries people have had about their entries for New Leaf!
Regarding the level of detail and complexity - the panel of judges consists of passionate laymen. We are encouraging all entrants to go into as much detail as they like with their entries, but be aware that any parts of your entry which utilise specialised knowledge of life sciences should either be simplified or come with a sufficient explanation that it can be understood by someone without that specialised knowledge.
All in all, these entries are for a slightly magical world with such wondrous animals as the flower-cup porcupine and the leffit; the entries which are most likely to win are the ones which capture the imagination, are creative and exciting, and which use a smidge of science or well-thought-out detail to back it all up.
For example, think of the Dras. Due to many generations of exposure to their harsh, toxic environment, they are all but impossible to get drunk due to their bodies' increased ability to process toxins. Creative, evocative and with a pinch of science to tie it all together - use the devs as inspiration for your entries!
Of course, as always, please get in touch here on the forums, via the Trials of Karcion email, or on Discord if you have any further enquiries!
