    Kingdom of Dawn Call for Player-Written Books​


    The Kingdom of Dawn is pleased to announce that our vast collection of game and player-written books has been cataloged, organized and available to the public at two locations: The Dawn Library located within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Dawn at coordinates 118”33’N 62”51’E and our Malas Outpost & Book Library located just East of Umbra at coordinates 24”10’N 57”26’E. You can find the card catalog online at http://www.uoforums.com/f1495/.

    Harlequin, the Library Director, has requested that The Royal Council authorize funds for a contest for player-written books and we have approved it. The guaranteed prize fund is currently 2.5 Million Gold Pieces with several generous donations from some citizens of Baja.

    The contest will accept books in the following categories:

    • In-game history – Guild, Personal, Player-Run Establishment, Quests, etc.
    • Guides – Skills, Templates, Champion Spawns, etc.
    • Essays – The Virtues, Monster AI, etc.
    • Poetry – An ode to UO, Love, etc.
    You have one month to write/submit your book. Your submission must be received by August 8th, 2008 at 9 PM PDT (12 PM EDT).

    Rules:

    1) All books MUST BE PG-13 which will be determined solely by Grand Duchess WildStar. If your book is found not to be PG-13, it will be returned to you and you will have only one chance to resubmit it.

    2) Your submission must be an original work created by you either at some time in the past or created just for this contest. If the book already exists in The Dawn Library Collection, it will be disqualified. You can view the card catalog online at http://www.uoforums.com/f1495/ or visit the libraries in-game to see what books are currently in the collection.

    3) Only one entry per category is allowed. If your entry is part of a series of books, please select one to be judged although we will gladly accept the entire series.

    4) Your submission must include your name and a method of contacting you – ICQ Number or email address.

    Your submission will be judged on the following qualities: Content & Quality of Writing.

    The winner’s will be announced on Stratics & UOForums and the books will be prominently displayed in both libraries.

    Hail All,

    I'm curious about one's personal character biography, and I've read some really entertaining, well-written, and fascinating autobiographies. Then again, I'm always interested in a good read.

    Man, 7.5 million gold... By the teats of the Sake Goddess, I could purchase 7.5 million gold's worth of tomato soup, bowls of potatoes, legs of lamb, cooked breads, and wheels o' cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese. That's a feast that would last for 69 MONTHS!

    Whispering Rose Radio generously donated 500k gold to the Kingdom of Dawn prize fund, so TAO made a matching donation. We would like to challenge other guilds to match WRR's contribution, too.

    Someway, somehow, I'll work out the costs for a luxurious 69 month feast! Perhaps purchase some of the expensive stuff! :danceb:

    Maybe I can hire these talented folk...

    Ah, belly dancers. Every household should have at least two or four or sixty-nine.
