The Championship Point System

The HARPG Championship System (CP) is built to help HARPG phae expand and explore more beyond the creation of references and breeding. This means that HARPG phae can earn points for taking part in shows, ranking in said shows, going through training, or even being present in stories about their lives around the stable! Only personal art and collaborations done by the phae’s owner may earn points towards this system. Things like commissions and gift art do not count for CP.


The CP system is entirely optional! You do not have to use the system if you do not want to, but it is a great way to earn bacon points to spend on your phae!


Earning Points

Your phae may earn CP through both written roleplays and art, with points being earned based on how much of your phae is showing or how many words you have written! Show entries, training or working pieces all count for the following:


Art Base Points:

+0.5 CP for headshots

+1 CP for partial body

+1.5 CP for full body 


Literature Base Points:

+1 CP for 400-999 words

+2 CP for 1000-1999 words

+3 CP for 2000+ words


Show Placement Points: (may only be awarded to entries that are partial body or more or meet minimum literature requirements)

+3 CP for placing first

+2 CP for placing second

+1 CP for placing between third and fifth

+1 point for any special placement (Show Champion, Judge’s Choice, Best in Show, etc.)


Bonus Points: (stacks on both art & literature base points)

+1 CP for collaborations 

+1 CP for stable life images (must be happenings at the stable; cannot be competition entries)

+0.5 CP for Approved Effort Show entries

+? for Group Show entries (points will be specified on the show journal)


Shows versus Stable Life:

Stable life CP counts towards anything your phae is doing at your stables or visiting another stable. These should not include anything about shows or being at shows, and are meant more for personal interactions with neighboring stables or affiliates. Stable life pieces can be training pieces, working pieces, or any other piece that shows your phae doing their daily tasks. These can even be showing phae in an occupation that is different than showing, such as a service-animal phae.


Art Piece Requirements

Each show or training/working image must be colored or have clean lineart and must have a simple background. All art pieces are required to have a background. Backgrounds may be self-drawn, premade backgrounds or photo manipulations, the latter two requiring appropriate credits.  All art must be created in-part (collab) or in full by the owner of the phae to earn points.  Backgrounds should not be reused. If you have multiple characters in the same art piece, remember that only one may take CP for it.


Literature Piece Requirements

Words are counted per phae in a role play, not as a collective count between all phae in the role-play.  Each character must have a minimum of 400 words to earn points.  Only one character per player per literature piece may claim points.  If you have multiple characters in the same role-play, remember that only one may take CP for it. 400 words is the minimum requirement for show entries as well.


Recording and Validating Points

Please use a journal, stash file, or the phae’s reference to collect a record of each piece your character appears in. Each record should include:

  • A link to the art or literature piece
  • A link to the show entered (if applicable)
    • The entry’s placement (if applicable)
    • If more than one class or round is listed in the linked results, please indicate which one your phae participated in.
    • Any special placement received (if applicable; include proof of award)
  • Total of points earned

Format Example:

  • 2 CP – 1266 word individual literature [link]

Once you’ve tallied and double checked your math, you may submit your character through the CP validation form to have your CP count validated! 

In order to have your CP validated, make sure the piece is accepted into the group. Anything not accepted will not be validated.
