    ***The Non Star Wars Fanfiction - Role Playing Forum Writing Challenge***

    [image=http://www.gildedquill.net/Graphics/Gilded_Quill.gif]

    Greetings writers from around the boards! It is the distinct pleasure of the Roleplaying and Fanfiction Moderating Teams to offer to our communities, and the Jedi Council Forums, the Non Star Wars Trans-forum Writing Challenge. It is our profound hope that this friendly competition increases the dialog between writers here, bringing our mutual hobbies closer together and inspiring a feeling of excellence among us.

    Fanficcers and RPers alike, step right up and show us your talents!

    Act I: The Challenge

    The challenge will take the form of a collaborative vignette challenge (RPF: equivalent to a combine post). Contestants will be assigned a random partner from the other forum (that is, forming RPF-FF pairs), and together they will write a story of 2000-8000 words. Teams may do it in any way they choose (round-robin, co-writing, etc) but ideally each member of a team should contribute equally.

    The prompt will be given out after signups are complete. Any fandoms permitted in the NSWFF are allowed, which means no original fiction - sorry! Star Wars crossovers are also not allowed, as this is a non-Star Wars competition.

    There will be one week alloted for sign-ups, four weeks for writing the entry, and two weeks for the JC to vote on the winner.

    Act II: The Participants

    Anyone interested may participate, with one unfortunate caveat: by the nature of this contest the participants from FF and RPF must be of an equal number. Thus if there are more participants from one forum than another, the corresponding last few signups will not be able to participate. We will do our best to get even numbers to ensure that nobody misses out, but we can't guarantee anything, so sign up early!

    You do not actually need to be a RPF or FF regular to participate. Simply pick a side, sign up, and you're in. :D

    Signups will last until 28 January 2010. At the end of the signup week, we will randomise the signup lists and inform the participants of their partners.

    Act III: The Submission

    The teams will have four weeks to write their entries - until 25 February 2010. At the end of the writing period, all teams are to PM their entries to the competition sock, The_Writing_Olympics, to allow for their writings to be randomized and anonymous to achieve complete impartiality. (Please have only 1 person submit for each team, or it'll be confusing.) Their entries will then be posted in the neutral, 3rd party "Census and Games" board.

    Act IV: The Judgment

    The winner will be decided by a popular vote to the competition sock, The_Writing_Olympics. Everyone (RPFers, FFers, non-affliated JCers) are all allowed to vote, though sock checking will be strictly enforced. Users will PM to us their top three candidates - the one awarded first will get 3 points, the one awarded second will get 2, and the one awarded third will get one. The voting period will last two weeks, until 11 March 2010.

    At the end of the voting period, the contestant with the highest amount of points wins!

    ACT V: The Reward

    Both members of the winning team will get colours for 1 week. If there are many participants, there may also be rewards for 2nd and maybe 3rd places. The winners will also receive the title of "Best Writers in the JC" and The [hl=black]Golden Quill Award![/hl]. The title and award will last until the next competition between the boards, a minimum of three months. Further rewards to the writers themselves will be granted by their respective mods. Ticker-tape parades, holidays, it's all possible here.

    ACT VI: The Epilogue

    And that's it, good users! Hopefully this explains all you need to know about the contest. Feel free to PM any of the Mods associated with this if you have any questions. And we hope you'll consider writing for thi

    Basically, you'll be paired with an RPF person and the two of you will co-write a vignette :)

    Well, sign ups are over, and they have one less than us... two if you count the one who just posted over there that they'll have to drop out. That's a bummer. I'd hate to see anyone left out.

    Oh. Bummer.

    Well, you can scrub my name off, since I came into the game later than most.

    If you do this again I'd love to participate. :)

    Hmm... there are two people out on this, and there are two RP mods... mayhap we can convince them to participate? [face_batting]

    The prompt is "Write about an excursion to a market/trading establishment of your choice".

    That is, a trip to a mall.

    Enjoy, people. :D
