Halloween writing contest

Postby Master Belmos » October 5th, 2013, 6:36:59 pm

Hello, fellow magi. Today, it falls to me to make a post in here; a rare honor to be sure. As you all probably know, the autumn festivities are coming up in just a few weeks, a time of costumes, sweet and scary things. At this time of the year, I take great pleasure in sitting at the fire with a good pipe and tell stories. So let us make this a small contest about who can tell the best story fitting the occasion. Write a story capturing the spirit of the season, be it autumn, treats, creatures or mystical terror.

As always things like these need to have rules, and we will detail those below. I hope you'll be participating in great number and that you will have fun writing for us.


These are the rules for this:

  • All entries must be your own work
  • Entries must go into the Competition Entries forum. Entries posted anywhere else will be disregarded
  • Your story needs to fit into the Magistream world
  • The minimum word count for your story is 150 words. There is no maximum
  • Each entry is required to have a title
  • You may edit your entry up until the deadline
  • You may enter more than one story, but you may only win one prize
  • Please remember that this site is PG-13; write your stories appropriately.
  • The deadline is October 20 at 11:59 pm EST. Any entries submitted after that will be disregarded.

Judging and prizes

  • Judging will be done by October 31
  • Main judges are Raneth, PKGriffin and Myrin, with admins and other advisors possibly chiming in
  • There is no fixed number of winners; the judges will select as many winners as they like.
  • Each winner will receive 5 shards
  • In addition, all winning entries will be collected for a future site feature

Disclaimer: By entering this contest, you agree that ownership to your story transfers to Magistream if the story is selected as a winner. We will hold all rights to those stories and may make small edits to make it fit better into the MS world. They may not be removed from Magistream without consent of the site admins.
The creatures in any tab that has "for sale" in its name are for sale. If you are interested in some of them, PM me please.

New stock available! Check my Keep for many past event creatures for sale!
