    TheForce.net is hosting a Star Wars Miniatures custom scenario contest. Scenarios are best described as pre-created battles. In normal game play, Minis players each create their own squads and battle other players in one-on-one battles. Scenarios, on the other hand, are generally pre-created and pre-set up for two or more players. There are usually set goals for each team to accomplish in the game and special rules for the battle. Scenarios often seek to recreate a ?historical? Star Wars battle from the movies, books, or comics.

    What TheForce.Net would like you to do is create a custom scenario and submit it to us by 12:01am EDT on January 10th. The creator(s) of the top scenario will receive a $60 gift card from www.MiniatureMarket.com, the second place scenario will receive a $40 gift card, and third place will receive $20. Gift cards will be redeemable for any merchandise at MiniatureMarket.com. Winners will be announced within two weeks of the contest date and prizes should be received shortly after that.

    Who: The contest is open to anyone 18 or over. Each entrant is limited to submitting no more than three scenarios. Scenarios submitted after a person?s third will not be judged. Any evidence of plagiarism will cause all of an entrant?s scenarios to be removed from the contest. Scenarios created by two or more people may be submitted, but will only receive one prize if chosen as a winner.

    How to enter: Entries should be submitted via email to Dajuan@theforce.net by 12:01am EDT on January 10th . Each entry needs to have the full name and email address of the entrant(s). Entries without names and email addresses will not be eligible for prizes. Winners will be notified via email and will have their scenarios posted on TheForce.Net.

    Disclaimer: Names and email address submitted to TFN will NOT be given to anyone (with the exception of the winners? information to Miniaturemarket.com for prize claiming). By submitting your scenario to this contest you are agreeing to allow TFN to post it after the contest end date. TFN reserves the right to make minimal changes to the scenario before it is posted (changes would most likely be in the form of spelling/grammar or formatting issues).

    Judges: Dajuan and Hothie, both avid Star Wars miniatures players and scenario creators, will serve as judges for the contest.

    Example Scenarios: Wizards of the Coast occasionally posts scenarios on their website. The recently posted Permanent Demotion is a great example of a 2-3 person scenario. Knightfall a joint effort of Dajuan and Hothie is another example of a small 2-4 person scenario and Hothie?s Hey Chancellor, Need a Lift?, built for 10 people and encompassing five separate maps, is a nice example of a massive battle. Knightfall and Hey Chancellor, Need a Lift can both be found here.

    Links to Maps: To make finding and linking maps easier here are some links to sites that have Star Wars Miniatures maps:
    Maps created by WotC
    The Holocron
    Jedi Cartographer?s Map Pack

    Judging Criteria: The scenarios will be judged on the following criteria using a 0-10 scale (10 is the best, 0 the worst).
    Every Scenario will be judged in the following categories:
    ? Access - Will most people have access to all of the figures/maps required for the scenario and are reasonable alterna
