    [UO Herald] Memorable Moment | Stratics Forums

    To help us celebrate our 15th year anniversary we have come up with a nice piece of art that will be the reward for this writing contest. We will be picking 5 winners from each shard. The players that write the best story about their most memorable moment in UO will be sent a code to redeem for one of these robes.
    The rules are as follows:
    • Must be between 250 to 500 words
    • Deadline September 15th
    • Essays will be judged based on originality, content, and how well they capture what is special about the memorable moment they have chosen to describe.
    • Winners and their essays will be announced on the Herald
    • Codes will be mailed to you by Mesanna by October 6th
    • Mail your entries to your shard Event Moderator. If you do not have an EM on your shard, please email your entries to barmstrong@ea.com
    Good luck to everyone and we look forward to reading your stories. Here is a sneak preview of the reward for this contest.

    Oh this is quite exciting! I do like to write and am quite good at it, I think... But a story that must be between 250 to 500 words? :( So this is going to be a short story then... I do believe I have a memory of a very cherished moment in UO I can use and make it between 250 to 500 words... I hope... :rolleyes:

    :mylittlepony:Thanks!

    P.S.

    With that being said... *starts writing*

    I emailed and PM'd Aurora but no answer. Is this a hard and fast 500? What if you go over?

    I e-mailed Aurora last night and also asked for a confirmation reply if possible which she sent me today. Try again to make sure she got it if you want.

    I sure wish I was a decent writer because those robes sure would match my spiffy purple shoes.

    I'm not a decent writer as my english could be better and with only 500 words, it's sure not easy to write a RP story. Just try your best. If you not try, you have zero chance to get the robe.
