  • IWT 13: The Resurrection

    Theme: Resurrection

    Deadline: April 12, 11:59 PM

    Okay, we’re going straight to 13 because whatever happened before the great sleep doesn’t matter anymore. We’re moving on because this is Infinite’s RESURRECTION.

    Which is what the theme of this contest is going to be (Resurrection in case you weren’t paying attention)

    So if you want to do a story about a literal resurrection, metaphorical resurrection, pornagorical resurrection, whatever, go ahead. Just make it the main theme.

    As usual the story has to be at least 20 pages since that’s the minimum for it to appear on the reading list. The story also has to be completed. That means no loose ends.

    That’s about it for the standards of the contest, obviously though if you turn in a shitty story, it’s going to be judged as such.

    Since everything is brand new, we’re doing the contests a little different now. Going to actually have at least 3 different judges to judge the stories instead of the old way since it’ll be less clunky and more streamlined than the old way we used to do it here. Plus we’ve got access to more people now.

    Judges will just pick 5 stories, rank them, then PM them to me. If there isn't five, well just still rank whatever we did get for the contest and send them to me.

    Since I’m the one setting this up, I know I’ll have to be a judge. Don’t know who the other two will be yet. Probably won’t even pick them until the deadline gets closer. I got some people in mind, but it’ll depend on if they’re going to be around and such. (And they can't be participants in the contest)

    Anyway, if you intend on joining the contest let it be known here.

    Oh and the SHAME PIT is still a thing. The only difference is here you don’t run the risk of getting banned or losing points or anything else tangible. You just earn the scorn and mockery of others on the site for flaking out.

    Good Luck.

    Mizal will want to know how many stories she can enter.


    • #3
      She can enter as many as she wants. We've had contests here in the past with more than one story entry by a writer.

        Guess I'll impale myself on the spear that is this contest first. And since you know where I live, I'm not falling for those "it's an off-site contest, you won't get truly shamed" shenanigans. There'll be an entry.

          Oh you'd get SHAMED if you failed to turn something in, but it would just be over here. IS has had its own SHAME pit for quite some time.

            I'm in.

            ​​​​​​I know I swore off contests this year, but that was on CYS.

            And if I can't manage twenty pages in four months I deserve all ridicule possible.

              My question is would it be accepted, coauthor works? And can I first publish the game on Cys to get feedback from people there and later on publish here the final version? Because I don't want to be blunt. But I will have more feedback from a profaned Egyptian hippopotamus mummy than from anyone from this site.

                No, nothing co-authored. One author, one prize.

                As for the other question, if you look back into the archives of these forum threads, one of the main obstacles of why there was never a CYS/IS contest any time I attempted to unite the tribes as it were is because inevitably CYStians ALWAYS wanted to write their story on CYS rather than here and enter it.

                Which in turn always ended up causing a lot of bitching and arguing and ultimately everyone remaining in their own separate enclaves exclaiming loudly that the other tribe were a bunch of dumb poopy heads.

                And while I know you’re suggesting on still writing the story on here, I’m going to say you really need to write the story on here first. (I don’t care what you do with it after the contest)

                If you want proof readers feel free to just harass CYStians to drag their asses over here to read it. It’s a simple enough task even for them.

                  I'll join. I wasn't going to but I had a bunch of good ideas, and it's easy to write with my phone on this site.

                  Endmaster, how come Legend isn't on CYS?


                  • #10
                    A bunch of reasons really.

                    But it doesn't really need to be on CYS at this point, Rogues is basically a much better story reboot of Legend.

                      My story is called The Dryad's Revenge.

                      I'm supposed to read all of your stories Endmaster, but there are a lot.

                        Took me a while to figure this out. I didn't activate my account through email the first time. I'll enter. Posting my story here before it hits CYS also won't be a problem. Going between the sites is just a copy-paste thing.

                          It's looking like I'll be the only native ISer in this thing...

                            I think this will be cool to spectate!

                              Fuck it, I'll participate. Surely with 3 months to write I can't mess this up.
