The Melting Pot story

Once upon a time, there was a family living in a house in the woods. They were making the most delicious cauliflower soup in a pot they made once a while. In the family, there was a father that had two sons with the names of Pollio and Thote. When they were done, they were trying the taste of the soup, but it was too hot. So, they wondered around the Raftimate Forest. They saw the tallest tree ever in the woods. They were not sure why it’s there. It had little iron bars as like if it was from a telephone pole. The father climbed up the tree. Then there was a castle full of witches. They had that same soup that the father made. Then he got frightened and hurried down. He went to the house and saw that the pot was missing, including the bowls of soup they were waiting to cool down while they were wandering. He, then, went to repair his sword and shield that he had a long time. He also went up the tree anyway. Then there were 20 pots of that soup. The father was so surprised. He tried to pick one up, but it was a ghost. Then suddenly, the pots disappeared. He got so frustrated about that he saw the fake pots. Then a witch came out and casted at the man. His shield blocked the cast and going straight back to that same witch and collapsed from her broom! Then eleven more came out. Then they used a stronger spell, but the shield blocked it again and killed them. The evil Queen Poison was flying very fast on her broom! Her arms are full of pots with nothing in them! When she, then, throws the pots, the man’s shield broke. It was dull wood. There was also a really big rock and the man decided to use it as a shield! He found a bow and only 15 really sharp arrows from one of the witches that he killed. He, then, used his arrows on his bow and shot right at the head. It didn’t work. The head was as hard as concrete! He now uses a sword instead. With a bow, he aimed at her head again and fired. It shot right through her head, and collapsed. Then the warm cauliflower soup pot landed softly to the ground like a feather. The father, and the children are starving, so they tried the soup once more. It was delicious. They tried it with their French bread and it was delicious, too. They chopped down that giant tree and used the wood to build a 2-story house. They moved the furniture, cleaned the new house and lived happily ever after.

I really like rw paint for pixel art since the pencil tool is very convenient and the draw space is free from clutter.
Often you want to restrict yourself to only a few colors, so I thought it would be nice to be able to save a pallet of colors.
We already have the recently used colors, but sometimes it can be hard to control exactly what appears there, and it would be nice to have a row of colors that we can drag and drop around. Drag to add one, drag away to remove, and drag within them to re-order.

Why so many rules?

Someone has asked the question, Why so many rules? in regards to the TOTM contest. I do not think there are so many rules . Allow me to explain why we need rules in the contest and how we came to have as many rules as we do for the contest.
