    I see this was posted in UHall as well. Is it open to everyone or just Catskills players?

    You know someone has dealt with people like James and other insane people when they have to specify where to buy the book.

    I wonder if the copy glitch still works where you can turn a 20 page book into a 100 page one ... technically it would still be bought from a provisioner!

    The Legend of Scarst the Terrible.

    Once upon a time, in the kingdom of Britannia there lived a dude named Scarst.
    He was Terrible!!

    Just curious, why the strict restriction of 20 pages? This is less than it'd take to fill two printable A4s.

    I think that the 20-page limit is that so they can quickly judge the stories and declare a winner.

    Because that takes up more words, and we don't like to read. Give us small books.

    Here is a clear sign that all of my influence on UO has been lost...

    There are no rules about not killing your opponents. (Burn their books!)

    We may have to come out of retirement and start killing people aneirin, unfortunately that'd mean actually finding the people we're supposed to kill and that's a hassle.

    But I mention that it must fit into the "20 pages of a provisioner-bought book".... This is so it is easier to judge. We've gotten quite a few entries already so I can't imagine sitting and reading a 400pg novel! :p Poor Jim!!!
