Welcome to Hollow City!

We are a comic battle tournament website/forum. You might also know this under the term original character tournament (OCT).

You will find all rules, an intro comic to set the mood, and the map here: click me!



What is comic battling?
It works like this: Every participant has one or more characters. Those characters go on adventures and meet the characters of the other players; they might fight but they might also just do stuff together or even combine their forces against something else. This is what you draw when you "battle".

Here's how a battle goes: Player A draws his comic in the first week, then Player B will draw his comic in the second week as an answer to Player A's comic.
The goal is to make the most entertaining/gripping/funny/best comic! It is up to you how to do this. After the two fights have been posted there will be a poll in which members can vote on who created the best comic.

Comics are rewarded with points. See the rules thread for details.


Can I submit comics outside of a battle?
Yes! We call this "city stories". You can take as much time for these as you like. You can tell any story that plays in this universe, you can even feature other characters. These stories are also rewarded with points (10 per page).

The same goes for intro comics which are mandatory for new players. We want to get to know your character a little before he/she fights!


How do I upload my comic pages?
If you don't have your own webspace we can recommend free hosters like Photobucket. Just make a free account there, upload your pages and link them with the [ img] tags.
We recommend to post your pages with a width of 700-800 pixels. Pages that are broader than around 810 pixels will get cut off by the forum layout!

Due to "popular" request, we've got a Discord channel: https://discord.gg/4V3Veuw (you can use Discord in your browser). The old IRC is no longer being frequented. Feel free to drop into Discord any time!
