[[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RoA_Dragons_6066.jpg]][[caption-width-right:280:Meet the [[BigBad bad guys]]]]The Race of Aleria is an OriginalCharacterTournament currently starting its second round on the site [[http://race-of-aleria.deviantart.com deviantART]]. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As its name kindly announces]], the premise is that competitors are to [[CaptainObvious race eachother]] to reach a [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleporter]] to take them to the next phase of the race, all in the world of Aleria.

[[ExpoSpeak The point of this]] is to select one being who'll have the honor to slay the dictator dragons that had once [[AndThatsTerrible ruled over their civilization]] (whom had been thought to be [[DeaderThanDead dead]] but turned out [[NotQuiteDead not to be]]) in turn for money, fame and keeping the dragons' hides - which are also worth a lot of money in themselves.

-----------------


!!This OCT provides examples of:
[[folder:General tropes]]
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Considering that Aleria is an intergalactic civilization and the contestants come from all over the ''multiverse'', this trope doesn't just exist in here. It's a must. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the occasional entry.
** For Carlos, this would be Spanish. He can only speak Spanish.
* BlessedWithSuck: A fair amount of the entrants, apparently. Like in every OCT.
* ElementalPowers: Where do we even start?
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Really, the Race of Aleria.
* SideKick: Any number of the teams.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: What the means of reaching a checkpoint- as well as the racing sections- are.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Averted. Symphony speaks "Fairy Cat", and while she has taken lessons to understand Alerian, she cannot speak it, and many Fairy Cats find it difficult to make the sounds required for it.
* CallASmeerpARabbit: Symphony's species has been dubbed "Fairy Cats" by the rest of the universe, yet they are neither fairies nor cats, and they do not really resemble either.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: [[http://chamfruit.deviantart.com/art/Nah-yair-Reference- 186118672 Nah'yair ]]
]]
* TheDragon: [[PlayingWithTropes Played with]] since she's both Vespera's second-in-command and not a bad person. And well, not a dragon per se albeit some contestants have confused her [[HilarityEnsues for an actual one]].
