A create-off is a large contest in which several players compete against each other in mini-contests chosen by the Game-Master. The Game-Master (GM) is the person who made the create-off and the person who runs it. Create-offs often have volunteer judges who help with the orchestration of the create-off as well as judging the entries. greenpetking founded a group known as the SCOP, or Story Create-Off Productions for the creation, endorsement and description of Story Create-Offs. A universal guide to create-offs in generall was also created by greenpetking to help people joining and making create-offs.
Create-offs are generally located in the Spore Community Showcase subforum, as a type of contest.
