So I've been thinking about a story I have been wanting to write for a while now and it occured to me that it would make for a great contest. Still, I do not have the isk to spend on it nor do I have the time to arrange judges etc etc, but I do have the time to read stories.
So, a writing prompt instead.
New Eden in ten thousand years. That is all.
No other rules or limitations. Use your characters, other peoples characters, use earth, use aliens, Space Magic, elves and orcs, tyranids, time travel, your real life, whatever and whoever you can think of. As long as it is set in New Eden ten thousand years from current in-game time.
It will obviously not be canon nor usable ic in any way, so where I would normally demand to see pwrmission granted for using other peoples characters or some adherence to pf, this is entirely free for all.
In about a month, 15th of january to be precise, I will pick the one I liked the most and give the author something shiny through a disposable alt in case there would be ic issues with the author.
So yeah, Little bit of a contest, but nothing big or official. No judges panel or guarantee of unbiased judging etc. So get writing, guys. If you want to be eligible for whatever little token I bestow on my favorite pick, you may want to ensure I have seen your entry by linking it in this thread.
If someone wants to make a proper contest out of it with a panel and huge prizes etc, feel free. I would appreciate this original prompt being credited though.
