Welcome to RPG_icontest. This is an icontest community centered around all RPG games, whether they were made for the computer or a specific game system; this includes MMORPGs. This includes games such as the Final Fantasy series, Metal Gear Solid, and Suikoden; we do not limit icons to only those series however, a list of all sorts of RPG games can be found here. Welcome to the community, and we hope you have a good time!

1) You must be a member of this community to participate. You do not, however, need posting access; that is limited to MODS and BANNER MAKERS only. So please don't ask to be added. You cannot post here anonymously, and therefore must join the community and post your submissions in a screened post.
2) All entries must pertain to an RPG game, doesn't matter which one, unless we decide to use a specific one.
3) The winner of the icontest of that week will be the one to choose the theme. There will be four different style possibilities; Lyrical Competition, Specific game competition, Open-Ended (ie: rainbow, monochrome) or Stillness, in which we pick a picture(s) for you to use. One style a week, not all four in the same week.
4) You are not permitted to post your icon(s) anywhere else until the voting period is over.
5) Two entries may be submitted per person.
6) The icon must be made by you, this includes not stealing icons or copying tutorials
7) Do not vote for yourself or solicit friends to vote for you, it is ban-worthy.
7) Your submissions must be within the LJ standards - 100x100 pixels or smaller and 40 KB or less.
8) Your icon must be recently made for each theme. If a re-used icon is submitted, the mod in charge of that week will ask you to make another one.
9) Doujinshi/Fanart/Cosplay images are not allowed, you must use official art only.

1. This will be a weekly test, meaning each week a new cap/lyric/theme will be posted and you must submit your icon within the specified deadline. All comments will be screened so that only the mods can view each sumbission.
2. A remote linking host will be needed. Photobucket is an excellent tool, and it's also free. Please do not use an LJ link or a standard site such as Geocities or Angel Link.
3. When posting your icon please leave the URL, the name of the character, and the series where the character came from along with it. Example:

URL: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v388/moonskye_/KIB148.jpg
Character: Tidus
Series: Final Fantasy X

4. Make sure to follow the specified rules. Meaning if a lyric is given, please do not change the lyric in anyway. For example, if the lyric is, "I think there's still a piece of my heart on your face" you can use any part of that lyric, but do not change it in any way. While you can use, "There's still a piece of my heart" you cannot use "There's a piece of my heart on you." What I'm trying to say is, leave the lyric as it is originally and no changing words around!

Submission deadline is on Thursday night.
