Fan Fiction Competition

Following the release of some new information on DOF lore and selections from the official writers' glossary (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1573), we are proud to announce the start of a new Fan Fiction Competition! It's fun, easy, and gives you a chance to show off your creativity. What more could you ask for? Oh, and did I mention that by submitting an entry, you will automatically receive a CB key? Yep, the big man up north (and by that I, of course, mean Konstantin) wants to expand the beta a bit, so write up an entry to tell us you're interested in helping to fulfill Kon's wish!

Entries can be anything and everything Dawn of Fantasy. Write up battle reports, memoirs of an Ogre, letters of forbidden love between a young elf archeress and a dwarf noble, it's up to you!

Along with a second CB round key, the grand winner will also be able to change the user ranks (ie: Peasant, Goblin, Warden, Swordsman, etc.) to a new unit hierarchy as ours are getting quite dated!

Prizes:
First Place:
A key to the Second Closed Beta
The opportunity to come up with new user ranks*

Just for entering:
A key to the Third Closed Beta**

Deadline: July 18th

To submit, post your entry, along with a mention of this contest, in this forum before the deadline. Judging will be conducted by fellow forumers via an open poll.

*Subject to RWS approval
**Granted that the entry exhibits a serious effort

Make a new thread in this forum. There's no word limit, but we need to be able to tell that you're actually trying to develop a story and not just aiming for a free key.

so will the winner get an e-mail? and for the people who just tried to get a free key will they also get an e-mail?

Alex Walz
07-03-2010, 10:27 PM
Everyone will be put on the beta testers email list. The winner will be announced, but it should be pretty clear before the announcement since the winner will be determined by an open poll.

Khan kreiger
07-03-2010, 10:43 PM
The open poll is going to be on this thread? or....

Alex Walz
07-06-2010, 12:47 PM
In a new thread probably.

Please note that the deadline has been moved from July 25th to July 18th, as the Second Closed Beta Stage has been moved ahead of schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and will continue to accept entries until the original deadline for keys to the third beta round, but the second round key must be distributed prior to that.

Iv got a question?.....what if two people tie, then do they both get a second beta key:confused:

Alex Walz
07-08-2010, 03:13 PM
We'll run the poll long enough to break a tie - probably in six hour increments or something if it comes to that.

Mikey
07-08-2010, 03:43 PM

Well they don't vote, people on the forum do. And they can easily create a poll at home. They're most likely waiting for late entries.

If you haven't noticed, most people DO work on Sundays, now. And as Yami-Yagari said, they can easily create a poll.

Let the voting commence! (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1619)

Great entries, everyone! :D However, I would recommend that everyone with more than one part to their stories should combine their parts into their original post to make reading easier.

Mikey
07-18-2010, 10:27 AM
ok will do


wasint able to combine them into one post because it was 43k caricters so i had to make it into two

Fan Fiction Competition - Results!

The Fan Fiction Competition has drawn to an end, leaving us with a whole library of 17 new and exciting fan fictions! Due to the unanticipated level of participation, we've thrown in some more prizes and will be giving third, second, and first place each a second CB key, while first place has also been given the opportunity to select new user rank titles to replace our old, and very outdated, ones.

So without further ado, the grand winner of the Fan Fic Competition is none other than Miclee, with an astonishing 14 of the 26 votes casted by your fellow forumers. Miclee's entry, Two and a Half Men, can be found here (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1596). Congrats, mate! Very well done.

The votes were more or less equally distributed among our next five esteemed authors, but in the end, second place goes to Yami-Yagari with four votes for his entry, War of the Lost Kings (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1607). And finally, Mikey claims third place with three votes for his entry, The Lord's Tale (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1577).

Well done, and congratulations to all who participated, and shared their, often twisted, imagination with us. ;)

Miclee, Yami-Yagari, Mikey - PM me with the email you'd like to use to receive your beta keys. Otherwise, we will be using the one listed under your account.


And then, as mentioned earlier, Miclee was also given the opportunity to give you all new user ranks. So blame him if you don't like your new rank. ;) He also added three new user rank intervals at 10, 300, and 1,000 posts.

If you haven't enlisted as one of the three sects, see this post (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65) for instructions. The humans are currently outnumbering the orcs by 60 members - you orcs aren't going to take this, are you?

I apoligize for not participating in the recent contest guys... I would have loved to, but just didn't have the time. I really did not even have to to read through the various stories, and so did not even vote. Congratulations to Miclee... I have read his now, and it was well worth the time.

I will not be able to come online very much now, but I will try to stay in touch. I look forward to Dawn of Fantasy's publication, and my purchasing of it.

Congrats to everyone! And I think that the ranks are better now, aside from the fact that I got bumped down to a stupid tree from an archmage. :p I'll just have to work back on up a bit to get it back now. The ranks now are more in line with the game I think.

Yes, you are doomed.....

Nah =), since your story was in voting panel. This means it was not a problem and you are in for third beta i believe.
