A marking that consists of one to two colors and up to three tessellated shapes. A square checkerboard pattern will always be accepted, but feel free to use any sort of tessellated shapes. You are allowed to rotate shapes as long as they are in a grid-like pattern, so triangles are another easy tessellation option. You are still limited to two colors no matter how many shapes you use, which means you will have to be creative if you want a complex tessellation to be visible. The base coat will show through any empty spots, if you choose to use them.
The shapes may be any shape. However, you are limited to three. Additionally, you have to have enough to tessellate/checker.
This means that you must have at least three shapes. These shapes should be in at least two rows and at least two columns, which means each shape must appear at least three times. As long as this requirement is met, you may have a few shapes ‘missing’ from the tessellation, as long as the pattern is clear. You may also space the shapes out partially, creating the illusion of an outline.
Checkered will always be solid.
Checkered follows elemental color rules. It may have up to two colors. These colors can affect the outline and any other shape. They don’t have to be consistent–in a simple checker example, all of the following are examples of acceptable color schemes.
You may use up to four shapes and up to five colors for Charged Checkered. One of the colors may glow.
