    [News] Recovering Stolen Wisdom - Writing Contest (Extended!)

    Recovering Stolen Wisdom Writing Contest
    By EMSeppo

    As you might have already heard, sets of books were recovered pertaining to the following topics:

    1. Gargish Society
    2. Gargish Virtues
    3. Gargish Philosophy
    4. Gargish Folklore
    5. Fiction related to Ter Mur
    6. Fiction related to Underworld
    7. Fiction related to the Abyss ​

    These books are to be delivered to Lycaeum as a sign of Human-Gargoyle friendship. Now, you are invited to write up to two books on on any of these topics and the chosen books will be made part of the collection. Each book must be no longer than what may fit in two blue books. The deadline for this will be October 30th, 2009.

    Notes:

    1) All of the books are supposed to have been translated into English already. So, don’t use Gargish. A little bit is okay, here and there! Be creative!

    2) Strongly encourage you to write it in notepad or word etc. You can always copy/paste that in the books in game. That way you can send the text to us via contact us link and I can post it on the website for everyone to read.

    We (scribes) can now craft books that are 100 and 200 pages in length now, just an FYI. I'm assuming the limit is 80 pages then (two blue book lengths), could we use a 100 page book and just write up to the 80th page?

    Hi there, I noticed on the EM site that they updated the book info...

    Each book must be no longer than what may fit in two blue books or one of the new 100 page craftable books (Please give 2 copies in case you use the craftable ones). The deadline for this will be October 13th, 2009.

    Since, we received zero submissions (tsk! tsk! tsk!), the deadline is being extended to Friday, October 30th. If there are zero submissions again, I will steal Christmas on Baja *growls*​

    Wow, so I could have won this with a nonsensical haiku.

    I just don't have a creative mind when it comes to stories but I could be the editor for a small fee. *LOL*
