I was just thinking about the old colour tourney that had risen up and was thinking to myself how I had fun playing my character for the first nite before I was banned off Diablo for a while (I think it was about 8 months ago) Anyways I am setting off to start another tourney in its honor.
You will be HC
You may restart once if your character dies or if you are not happy with your character.
Your skill select will be by choice.
You may select 10 skills and put any amount of skill points into those skills, for example if I was a Sorceress and selected firebolt, fireball, fire mastery, warmth, charged bolt, lighting, chain lighting, telekinisis, teleport, and lighting mastery I could place any wanted amount of skill points into only those skills.
You will select a color: Blue, Red, Black, White, Gold/Yellow, Green.
In Act 1 you may wear any armor and use any weapons but by Act 2 all visible armor (Helmet, Weapon Slot 1, Weapon Slot 2/Shield, Armor) must be only your color.
This will be the color all your equipment must be.
You may not MP
You may not twink
You may not mule (You can only use the inventory space allotted to you)
You may play on any player setting.
You must complete all quests in the order they are given.
You must only clear an area once.
Except the area which a act boss resides may be cleared (included the boss) up to three times. (Catacombs Level 2 & 3, Tal Rasha's Tomb, Durance of Hate level 2, Areas 2, 3, & 4 before Baal's Throne Room are also included in this rule)
You must update every two weeks even if your character hasn't progressed any or you are assumed dead.
When you are able to personalize an item send it to email@example.com. This will be used for the semi-color character named prizes prize stash.
How to Win the Prize

The Prize will be handed out the following week.
You must register to win.

Hm.. I'll give it a shot since I died quickly in the other tournaments I was joining. I actually was holding back a bit to hold a tourney of my own later on, but I could work on it a little longer so... let's go
Forum Name: Sint
Character: Yeller, Barbarian
Skills: Bash, Stun, Concentrate, Howl, Shout, Battle Orders, Battle Command, Iron Skin, Natural Resist.
Reasoning: Well, no special reasons to get this thing going.. Yellow items, since my eye fell on it. Concentrate ... it's been a long long time since I made one, and I actually want some boring play
edit.. yeah I knew I was forgetting something, 10th skill = berzerk
@Dark Warrior: Yes I understand it was short notice but I wanted it to be where people could sign up adn just start playing. Maybe I should of added that you can sign up at anytime.
@Hrus: AH!! I knew I was forgeting a color. ARGH ARGH. Anyways yes you can pick purple my apologies.
@atigdng: No you just pick a color. For example say I picked Black. I could wear a rare bonehelm that spawned with the color black, a shield socketed with a skull (turns items black), a wand socketed with a skull, and some other armor that was inherintenly black. Get it now?
Items that are red colored, a few off the top of my head items socketed with rubies, im pretty sure any items with the plus life suffix, and any rares that spawn with red as their color.
@Sir Lanksalot: The most common way to change the color of your item is to find a socketed item and either insert a ruby (red) sapphire (blue) skull (black) topaz (yellow) diamond (white) athymist (purple) or an emerald (green) to alter the color. Also rares randomly spawn with a color, some sets are always a certain color, and some uniques have their own unique colors.

Thanks. I'm in

Character: Rouge, Druid
Skills: Firestorm, Molten Boulder, Fissure, Volcano, oak sage, Raven, Spirit Wolf, Dire Wolf, Grizzly and poison creeper just to make up numbers.
Reasoning: because red = life and life = good, especially in hc.
1) For color, is it color as shown on the screen as you move about, or color as in what the color of the equipment is while viewing your character in the 'inventory' tab?
Example: Boots are blue in color while viewing them on your character in the inventory tab; however are normal color on the screen while moving about.
Which 'color' are we talking about?
2) You have a 3 socket armor and have decided blue is your color; is it always true that if you place a blue gem in the first socket, it will turn that item blue in color?
a. From then it is ok to add other gems as the color is now planted?
b. I have a 3 socketed bow on a merc, color is blue in view of inventory tab, but shows up as white while in the playing view; this will refer back to question #1 on acceptability of color choice.
c. This socketed bow has the first socket a blue gem, then red and followed by topaz; had the color choice wanted been gold, should the topaz been put on first?
3) What color is ethereal considered to be?
4) Prize stash? No muling, so we just go ahead and sell all uniques that cannot be used by our character? Example is that I find a Unique Red Armor and I can only wear Yellow as my color choice; do I just sell the armor?
Those are a few questions I have, and Tundra was confused about #1 for which I did not know. We know you are not talking Blue as in magic, or Yellow as in Rare; but you are talking blue as in having cold attributes or supposedly yellow items having something to do with lightning if that is the color lightning attributes give.
