Hmm, to bad i missed that contest. Unfortunately I am 45 minutes into Canada from the Washington border and I wouldn't have been able to compete for that contest.

What was the contest, and do we know the winners?

You'd just enter your email, hit *send* and sit down and wait. They randomly selected 5 winners...

wow...

that was a less satisfying contest. I love the idea of writing a culture. If I had the word space i would write a language and an entire history...

Oh well a brief synopsis it is.

5. Entries shall be no longer than five hundred (500) words in length.

Well I see that they've changed the actual number we should be aiming for in this contest on the main page, however having submitted (before this change) a 693 word entry I have to say I'd find it hard to cut that down and have it still be, at the very least, passable.

You will get it. Look for filler content that doesn't actually progress your story line. I find the best way to do this is to leave and come back to it several hours later.

This blows. My submission was nerfed because they couldn't decide on how long a submission should be?

Here I was ready to write a whole episode & had to cram a teaser in under 700 words.

They changed the official rules after the contest started.

I'm still gonna buy the game & play it but they know that already.

I'm just disappointed.

I may repost a shorter version later.

I'm sorry guys, this contest is only open to US residents. However, with that said, the European details will be incoming soon so we'll be able to include you in alot of these instances.

I'm pushing for you.
