New! Helpful theme guides to aid with voting!

► Prehistoric
(That means before recorded history, kids!)

► Norse Mythology
We're talking real mythology, not the comic book version! Use a book!

► Middle Eastern and Arabic-style
Explore the history, traditions, and culture of the middle east! Racist skins will earn you a permanent ban!

► Feudal Japanese and East-Asian History
Explore the history, traditions, and culture of the far east! No, this does NOT mean anime! Racist skins will STILL earn you a permanent ban!

► Medieval and Dark Ages (500 - 1400 A.D.)
Kings, Castles, Knights, Bards, and Indentured Servitude! No fantasy skins, keep it more realistic!
No, before you do it, your "Knight" skins probably won't win this one!


► The Renaissance Era (1400 - 1700 A.D.)
Poets, Astronomers, Philosophers, Inventors, and funny looking old-european style dress!

► Arctic and Frosty Life
Penguins! Polar Bears! Ice Golems! Adventurers and Explorers! No, don't submit Santa!

► Wild West and Frontier Life
Cowboys, Indians, Trappers, Hunters, Blacksmiths, Colonists, and Dysentery!

► World Leaders, Rulers and Royalty
Global Elite! Billionaires with $5000 suits! Monarchs with fancy crowns! World domination!

We're also trying something new by allowing voting from our Facebook friends as well. The scores will be combined after both polls have run their course.

Vote on the Facebook here!


Voting will end in five days, so get to it!

We should make an Arctic & Prehistoric coalition --> Ice Ages, 34% > Medieval, 31% (on the PMC poll). That would still be a nicer Theme.

Nah, just kidding...

Well, since medieval looks like it is going to win, I guess I am going to have to get used to it. 'Tis a sad day for my fascism.

I voted for feudal japan because I've been a little bit fascinated with the history of japan since I ever watched anime. I know it has nothing to do with anime, but it's fascinating to me.

There seems to be a lot of confusion here.

This month's skin contest is sort-of a research project for you all.

We expect you to post something historically accurate, and link to a reliable source of information in your upload's description.

Take the time to actually look something up, learn something new about history, and share it with the rest of the site. If you don't do that, you're not really trying for this contest at all and should not expect to win.

I hope anything but Medieval wins, PMC has enough of those types of skins. Contests should be focused on categories more unique.

Well, finally, Medieval/Dark Ages is a cool theme, but don't allow a lot of creativity, the representatives characters of the medieval era are: Knights, kings, princes, princess, queens, peasant, clerics, pope(?), blacksmith...
I think you should allow the fantasy, it would allows a larger creativity

Well most fantasy creatures were already covered in our Mythological Creature contest a few months ago.
Back in the medieval period people had all sorts of professions not just knight and king, with a little thought I think people should be able to come up with some interesting ideas. And even if they do decide to do a generic knight if they do it in some sort of manner that hasn't been done before I'd be happy with that as well.

When I said "fantasy", I thought of something like Magicians, undead etc... What is generally present in RPGs game.
The problem with the basic medieval theme is that a lot of people will do generics knight etc... and nothing original as you or I would like...
You should really consider the posibility to add more fantasy into the medieval theme

I voted for the Renaissance Era. I think a lot of people will learn many things from the older people here about the Renaissance time. Sadly, only 13 people agree with me.

Though Medieval is my favourte History period and Medieaval is maybe one of the biggest reasons I'm a fan of History, I'm not so happy to see it wins. It will be full of Knight skins... Medieval was not only knights.... without the ordinary paesant they would be hungry noones...



Edit: I think Norse Mythology is a good contest theme, my other passion is mythology...

Hey just wondering.. I am working on a Post-Apocalypse skin but it is kinda like the style that an assassin in the dark ages mightve looked like.. can i post that if it ends up being medieval and dark ages theme?

If Medieval wins, we will be looking for realistic skins (IE something actually period-appropriate to the middle ages). Considering there were no post-apocalyptic assassins in the real medieval ages, I'm guessing off hand your skin would not fit the theme.

So... I can't kill two birds with one stone by posting that wizard skin in my request cabinet?
