Avatars, Bards, poets, and story-tellers among you have enriched the Community with creations in the Community Library and other places of the forum for years. Those magnificent creations are often broadcasted and voiced by Community organizations like Avatar's Radio or The Caverns, just like this wonderful poetic riddle by "Parnaxis ". We want to praise and highlight the great creativity of the SotA Community. Between April 16 and April 26 we are running a contest for our creative writers. Show us your narrative or poetic creations and get the chance to win some COTOs for your piggy bank as well as a beautiful bookshelf. SUBMISSION DETAILS: Contest period: Submit your creative writing as a reply to this thread until Thursday, April 26. Length of text: To assure that we are able to read all your creative pieces, please make sure your text is no longer than 250 words. Style and Content: Your text should be directly or indirectly related to Shroud of the Avatar or a fantasy/medieval setting. However, creativity has no borders: You can decide whether your masterpiece rhymes, whether it is a short story, an Anagram, a Haiku or something else. As long as it contains letters, you are fine Submission limit: We accept one forum post per individual or group. You can submit your own entry separate from a group, if it’s completely separate in content. No reuse of submission materials! Language: You can submit your text in English, German, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian language. WINNERS AND PRIZES: Winners will be judged purely by quality and originality of the texts.
