I put my next story chapter aside for now because something else came along that I could not let pass by without jumping on the opportunity.
A gentleman calling himself Telegram Sam has taken the initiative to set up a fiction writing contest for EVE Online. He managed to get several sponsors on board and two CCP fiction writers will act as judges.
Needless to say I am very excited.
Of course there is the possibility of winning a prize, but not only that.
While I don't really count on winning anything, I really hope that this contest will motivate many creative people to write great stories that will enrich our game-world.
Of course all the exciting player-generated emergent gameplay content is great, but what is a fictional universe without some fiction?
So if you enjoy your little online escapist fantasy in ways that go beyond shooting-people-in-the-face(tm) and actually like reading stories, check out the submissions here. Already, only a few days after the announcement of the contest, there are ten stories, and submissions are accepted until december.
I will get sore eyes from reading.
Thank you Sam for that great initiative.
This is a collection of short in-character fiction pieces about Awakened Industries, a group of capsuleers and their crews living in the enigmatic and dangerous regions of Wormhole Space in EVE Online. None of the protagonists are actual characters or corporations in-game. All similarities with persons fictional or real are possibly coincidental and only sometimes intentional. - Emergent Patroller
