And the winner is …
To everyone who submitted an entry, please know that this contest was incredibly difficult to judge. Every story was great and well-written; in the end, we liked the twist given to Elder Riversong.
Shalune, we will be adding your story to our library, both on our guildsite and Tumblr, with proper credit given to you.
As requested by the winner, a total of 3,500 gold will be sent to both Roulette and Lotuslilly (from Nothrotes). Congratulations!
Also: If you submitted a story and would like it archived in our “library,” please post here and let us know!
Wyrmrest Accord, thank you so much for your generosity. We thought this would be a fun little prompt to write to, but had no idea the outpouring of support and encouragement from others. We will definitely be holding another one of these for a future holiday event.
The Mageroyal Society
p.s. Philomene and Paílla, please check your mail.

The <Mageroyal Society> will be judging and selecting the winning entries. There is no minimum/maximum word count. Some qualities we will be watching for are: good use of grammar and punctuation, spelling, how well it fits into the gaming universe, and of course - entertainment value.
All Elders are up for grabs - you do not need to reserve one. If more than one person writes about the same elder, that’s okay!
Important: Winners of this contest agree that their work will be preserved in the Society’s library (a thread on our guild site, as well as publication on our Tumblr, with proper credit given to the author). We would also like to repost your story in the winner’s announcement thread.
