Grand New Year Story Contest 2017

Grand New Year Story Contest

With the new year let’s see if we can kick off a new contest too.

This new contest has a submission window of two months: why two months? Because we have some nice looking prizes courtesy of  Maikull and we want a chance for everyone to participate!

Due to low voter turnout we’re also going to try something new and select three to five judges at random, this has the added benefit of pulling opinions from outside the community, ensures a set number of votes, plus guarantees  fairness that one group is going to outvote another. If you want to volunteer to be a judge please message me or Maikull and we’ll make sure you are added to the draw.

Rules

-Your story must be self-contained and be at least one paragraph long. This means your entry must be condensed into a single post. If you have more than one post your first one will be the only accepted entry.

-No thread Necromancy-the story you submit must be new.

- You must have a character on Twisting Nether or Ravenholdt to participate - Neither you nor the character needs to be active.

-Story must be WoW related and connect to the theme.

Prizes

Courtesy of Maikul we have some juicy prizes up for grabs:

-The winner of the contest will receive 30 days free game time or 1 WoW token worth or free in-game gold.

-2nd Place will receive 1000 gold per each multiplied by the number of contest participants.

 

Theme: Artifact Weapon

 

Please include Artifact Contest in the title of your story for your submission to be considered and include a link to your entry below.

Submission Deadline is February 28, winners will be chosen after the first week in March. Good Luck!

Very cool. Is there an in-game in-character portion of this contest, or is it strictly OOC on the forums?

So it's about how the people have used the artifact appearances and crafted their own lore about them or the significance behind a character's chosen weapon?

Both really. Generally at this point your character's artifact weapon, at least OOCly is their chosen weapon so both interpretations are wide open. Think of the topic as a lead off for your inspiration and at that point it's really however you feel like interpreting it. :)

As a second note in interest of keeping the thread clear for submission I'd like to request that any additional questions be sent via pm.
