Remember when I said I'd have a contest ready for December? I do. My computer did not wish to cooperate, however, as it promptly decided to kill itself. Basically, the CMOS battery went and died on me(a common problem with my model of device, the Alienware Alpha), and on top of a 120 dollar service fee I had to wait nearly two weeks for the repair place to get a replacement part and fix it.

BUT, I come back with a new contest ready to roll, right here and right now.

Feel free to direct any feedback or questions here! Please keep discussion relevant to the associated contest. All other Guild posting rules also apply.

I am very much interested in this competition but I need to know first. Is it allowed that we use copy write protected topics like D&D? I have a few characters I could easily write this about.

Usually the intent when I write a contest is that people write up new worlds and characters. That is simply a loose intent, however, and not a hard-written rule. If you have an idea for a story, you are more than free to go ahead and write it with pre-existing characters if you please.

Thank you for the speedy answer! A whole new world wouldn't be hard at all. I just happen to have an idea in mind within the Forgotten Realms. You sir and or ma'am, have my quill! I'll try to have something in soon!

@Frizan For this contest, do we have to end the story with obtaining the treasure, or is it sufficient to set the goal to obtain it and start the journey?

The idea I have will be bigger than 2000 words, so I will either need to take some shortcuts through exposition or not end with a treasure in their possession.

I would say try your best to end the story on the acquisition of the treasure, but I won't say no if it is not feasible to do so without sacrificing parts of the overall story. Journey over destination, and all that.

@FrizanI understand if you're busy, but the contest closed a while ago. When do you think we can expect the voting thread?
