I'm going to have a contest, sponsored by me, because I can.
Targeted participants are everyone in the main guilds I'm in - Blood of Lordaeron and Salvation - and anyone who is friends with me on RID/battletags as of now - and also my Pathfinder gaming pals. However, anyone can try for a prize if they really think they have the chops. I'll be judging based on my feels(see below).
To win this contest, you have to write a story about McSars. It can be any kind of story, from any perspective or any point in the timeline. Stories can be posted in this thread, or sent via email to email@example.com (I will accept racy stories).
What are the prizes, you ask? The prizes are video games gifted via Steam. The better you place, the higher value the game.
Canon Award: $20
Encouragement award: Some cheapass indie/ultra discounted game.
There are no limits to how many characters the story can have. It can be in first or third person. McSars can be doing pretty much anything you like.
How do I win?
If you want to win, you will make me have feels. I need to have a feel of some kind or the story is just not going to do it for me. The feel can be any kind - sadness, sorrow, a sense of '!@#$ yeah' or even hilarity - yes, you can do a silly/funny story too.
Inspiration: Here are a bunch of stories about McSars to give you some help.
What is the Canon Award?
The 'Canon Award' goes to the person who I decide writes a story that I think will be excellent canon for McSars. You get the $20 on top of any other prize you might have (so if you get 1st you could get a $50 game, for example). You also may get this award without winning any of the other prizes. Alternatively, no one may get this award. You must also agree to let me use this as part of McSars' canon.
What is the Encouragement award?
This is the one award that ANYONE could win. That's all I'll say about it.
DEADLINE/JUDGING: 25th December
