News and Updates
The world is not right. Pandemonium, disorder, and bedlam plague the story universe. Figurative darkness has fallen and anarchy reigns. Where do we go from here?
Deadline: May 1st at 12:01 A.M. Eastern Time
This may be the last contest I host before passing the torch off to someone else, or otherwise just dousing it into the ground. Though I am open to running one more after this one if I'm impressed by the top stories and turnout. With over a month and a half to write the story, and a wide open theme, I'm expecting some high quality material.
Entry Requirements & Prizes:
You must formally declare intent to enter the contest in this thread, as there is a point entry fee. Hopefully, this will motivate people to finish and reward those who honor their commitments
People can choose to enter the contest for 25, 50, 75, 100, or 125 points. Upon entering, those points will be deducted from your total. Upon submitting a contest story which meets minimum contest standards, you will get either 30, 60, 90, 120, or 150 points back (depending on how much they entered for). And then additionally 100 for winning the contest and a featured story if it's a CYOA and good enough to merit featuring.
If you do not submit a contest story which meets minimum contest standards by the deadline, you will not receive any rewards or points back.
To eliminate any possible confusion, the first number is your entry fee, and the second would be your reward. And this is just for submitting an acceptable entry. The winner will receive another 100 points on top of their initial reward.
25 -> 30
50 -> 60
75 -> 90
100 -> 120
125 -> 150
Recap: Stories will not be valid entries unless the site member formally announces his or her intent to enter the contest in this thread with the amount of points he or she wishes to stake.
* See EndMaster for rules regarding your service to him if your entry sends you into negative points.
* Stories that cannot meet minimum site standards count the same as a non entry and get SHAME.
* One entry per site member. No alternate accounts.
The judging panel will consist of moderators/administrators and selected highly esteemed community members that do not wish to enter.
@Romulus you stole the show.
1st Place: Romulus - Forever After
2nd Place: Romulus - Call for the Dead
3rd Place: @BerkaZerka - Untitled
No other entry received more than one vote, but the support for the top three was overwhelming. Thank you to ThreeJay and @Briar_Rose for their service on the judging panel. And congratulations to our winners. Links to the submission and feedback threads are at the bottom of the page.
Stay tuned for the Spring Contest - I am very excited for this one - details will likely be posted with the next 2-4 hours. Things have been kind of chaotic lately, so bare with me while I multi-task to get back on schedule.
For anyone who enjoyed the not-an-an-actual-entry, The Honorable Sell-Sword - Part I, stay tuned for Part II, also likely to be posted in the next 2-4 hours.
