As the judges, Ayallah, Silver Night, Holy Mother Alizebeth Amalath and I (as administrator) are disqualified.
All entries will be considered.
if the quality of the entries does not merit the number of prizes, then prizes will be given up to the number deemed meritorious.

The most "amusing" or "entertaining" to me gets treated to a candlelit dinner by me at a fine restaurant
((All submissions are expressly subject to the TOS and we certainly do not claim ownership. The submission of course, however, must be yours.
Note for ISD - This is specifically an In Character/Roleplay thing - a writing contest to be done by characters, not the players. The expectation is the submissions, whether 'fiction' or 'non fiction' would be in character to the capsuleer submitting it and people will have rp as part of the process. ))
