    And we have the team lists! Playing for the Star Wars side we have:

    Admiral Volshe
    Chyntuck
    Goodwood
    SatineNaberrie
    Darth_Furio


    While, playing for the Non Star Wars side of things we have:

    Lazy K
    Tarsier
    Moonspun Dragon
    Nyota's Heart
    Admiral Drabblar


    Now we recommend that you guys use a group PM to coordinate your team's activities. You can even elect a group 'captain', so to speak, to see that things flow smoothly; but how precisely you organize your teams is up to you.

    That said, we are so excited by the turn-out for this, and can't wait for the first round to get started! :)

    Hello and welcome to EVENT 1 OF THE FANFIC OLYMPICS! The Drabble Race!


    The goal of this event is to use the given prompts to write as many drabbles of exactly 100 words as you can. First place will win 100 points for their team, second place will win 75 points, and third place win 50.

    This is an individual event, so not every player has to participate, but we highly encourage everyone to.

    Rules:

    1. Each drabble must be 100 words (that does NOT include the prompt as the title) according to THIS word count tool. So, for example 2 drabbles with their prompt titles will equal 202 words. If a drabble is more or less, it will not count.

    2. If there is a tie between team mates, they will get both 1st and 2nd (or 2nd and 3rd, or two 3rd place). If there is a tie between participants of opposing teams, they will get the same amounts of points.

    3. You do not have to write all these prompts in order, and you can skip prompts

    4. You may post your progress as you go along, but please don’t spam the front page. BUT ALL DRABBLES MUST BE POSTED BY 11:59 PM SEPTEMBER 12th

    5. No cheating. We have tried to make these drabbles unique, and we can easily google a chunk if we think something is up, but we want to respect your honesty, as this IS a game.

    6. The Star Wars team must stick to Star Wars (though it can be any era, canon, legends, AU, etc, just tag it whatever era you think most of your drabbles will be in, we may change the tags to Mod!Challenge for our own ease) and the Non-SW team may use as many fandoms as they wish.

    7. Currently there are 150 drabbles. We are hoping this is more than enough but if people are nearing the end of the list, but still have a few days left to write, we may add more.

    Have fun and good luck.

    Sorry, which word count tool is that?

    EDIT: Am I correct in assuming one thread per participant?

    Right-o. :)

    On a totally unrelated note, I just noticed that I posted my question a mere five minutes after the rules. I must be stalking this thread or something.

    If you are on the sw team, put it in the sub forum, if you are on the nsw team, put it in that forum.

    Oh, and please post a link to your thread here.

    I'm excited to get started! [face_party]

    Two quick questions:
    1. Can the Non-SW participants write crossovers with SW?
    2. Does each drabble have to be based on a prompt word? Or are the prompts more like optional inspiration?

    Those are excellent questions. :)

    Since our normal policy is to have SW/Non-SW crossovers go in the Star Wars forums, we are going to ask the NSWFF team to write for non-SW fandoms only, even in crossovers.

    Then, each drabble has to be based on one of the prompts provided, but you are free to take inspiration from the prompt however you wish - from using the word itself in your drabble, to just taking the 'theme' of the word, so to speak. We certainly welcome creativity with your interpretation. ;)
