Lone Hero Contest

Yesterday, in the only real country, we celebrated INDEPENDENCE and FREEDOM. For those of you not taking part in shameful degeneracy, let me announce a new contest for FREE and INDEPENDENT, larger than life heroes and anti-heroes. Think classic Westerns, samurai films, and Mad Max. Knights and monks and rogues. A stranger comes out of the forest, crosses the desert, or comes sailing in from a distant star. Their past is a mystery, and they may ride off into the sunset within the week, but an evil will be defeated and the community they arrive in will never be the same. Deadline is 11:59 PM August 18th, CST. A generous enough timeline even if you're entering the succubus contest, but I'd advise not waiting till the last minute. (You will anyway, I know...but I'm not angry. Just disappointed.) This contest will release you from SHAME (if you are in this unfortunate state) and if there are at least three entries the winner will receive 125 points. Those who enter and don't win will receive a strong feeling of self worth and self respect and the knowledge that they're not as useless as everybody else. Those who promise to enter but don't produce a story, or don't meet minimum site standards will be harshly punished, of course... And note that if you DO publish something, it must remain up for at least a week. None of this publishing to avoid SHAME and then pulling it down again 20 minutes later nonsense. I know that trick. I invented that trick.

YEEEEESSS!
If this doesn't get some good results in, I am going to be pissed and will probably cry.

As a community activity, you guys may find and embed appropriate movie clips and music to help everyone GET HYPE for the theme. Here's one to start with:

I guess End and I are fighting over contestants now, but as he himself already pointed out, I have the power of a weirdly high percentage of asexuals on my side. All of you obviously can relate so much more to loners than to boners or anything wanting to have sex with you.

Does this have strict genre restrictions? For example, would a medieval high fantasy Lone Hero be acceptable?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Open as far as genre. Fantasy, post-apoc, sci-fi, or even horror are the ones that spring to mind, but if someone has an idea for something else that's fine too.

Romance!!!

I call it "The White Knight" ... A story of a bold and fearless incel, who stands alone against his own kind to defend the fair M'Ladies on internet forums. Sadly, just like opening doors or pulling out chairs, the fair maidens still do not deem to notice their Mountain Dew guzzling saviour. Still, he refuses to give up. And so the brave soul wonders on from reddit thread to reddit thread, in the hopes of one day feeling the sweet and tender embrace of an entirely platonic and awkward half-arm hug. ^_^

I'm just waiting until someone tries to make a succubus lone hero. I'll see if I can come up with any ideas, but I have a lot on my plate atm irl.

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Funny because my succubus story idea kind of fits the mold of both of these contests to a certain extent. But obviously a single storygame can't be entered into two contests.

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Since when?

Not like I care if you submit the same story, I mean the only limitation on this would be if Mizal insists on submitting a new story for her contest.

I was considering it last night, but after sleeping on it that's gonna be a no from me. Everyone will be trying to combine them and I don't want every single story in mine to be one I've already read and both contests to be limited to being about a hero saving people from a succubus.

I'm sorry to be the unfun one. Don't worry, I'll still be proud of you all even if you only manage to enter End's contest. Sort of...I guess....

Would giving the lone hero a companion be against the rules? Like, a lone duo? Or is this a hard one protag. only?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

I guess I wouldn't disqualify a sidekick or whatever because I'm sure everybody's will involve other characters to varying degrees, just be aware theme will be taken into account as part of the judging.

Haha excellent. I don't get JUST all the aces, but also the Catholics.

Am I really the sum total of Catholics on this site? That's disconcerting

You're the only one who matters to Mizal.

Is there a deadline to announce entering?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

7 days ago
I strongly disapprove of the 'heh heh, l'll just write the game first and THEN enter the contest, I'm so clever' flavor of cowardice. But I didn't include an intent to enter deadline since it's entirely possible to put out a decent game over a single weekend, and also the purpose of this was to get some fools out of the SHAME pit for once.

Hey a cowards got to do what he has got to do to not be double shamed.

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Yeah, what else can they do? Write?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Does my protagonist/POV character have to be the lone hero, or can they be someone else interacting with them on their journey?  The plot would still revolve heavily around this lone hero, the story just wouldn't be from their perspective.

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

The protagonist and the POV character don't *necessarily* have to be the same thing, so I'd accept this.

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Count me in!  This should be fun.  

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Sounds interesting, might as well give it a go. Does it have to be a certain length?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

Even though I'm neither ace nor Catholic, I'll do it.

I hope Mizal is keeping track of who is actually in this contest.

What the hell are you even talking about?

New Contest Theme: Lone Hero

I think they want more stories from you rather than you making these contests. I don't know why they posted it here though.

I'm confused too. I don't understand anything that has been said or why this is happening in my thread.

I was just going to delete but I figure odds are good the noob well say something else cringey if I leave it be, and I know you guys like that sort of thing.

Trial by fire baby. I'm new here. I've never made a single storygame. I'm in. Time to see if this greenhorn can dance around the SHAME pit y'all are climbing out of and come out alive, or even win - like hell I will. 

Good luck everyone.

This is shaping up to be a very good contest for readers, if you all don't fail horribly.
