    Redwall Writing Contest!

    Post  Sycamore on Fri May 17, 2013 5:53 pm

    Heyo! I didn't know the exact appropriate place for this, so I'm putting it here because of the Redwall Kickstarter.

    It's a writing contest featuring the world of Redwall. A group of writers get together and write one character, and after every round one writer gets voted out and they have to write their character out of the story, usually via death. I've participated in a few and these are super fun. Applications are due at the end of the month, though, so get hopping!




    [center]For countless seasons, the town of Yew has lived in peace and prosperity. Nestled just below the southern foothills of the mountains north of the fabled Redwall Abbey, Yew stands as one of the last havens before Mossflower Country fades into the wild and lawless Northlands. The northern mountains have generally done their part in restraining the tide of wickedness threatening to spill into Mossflower.

    However, several seasons ago, as if from nowhere, a mysterious settlement sprang up on the northern side of the mountains. Nobeast knew much of it, but then a name surfaced: Carrigul. It was a name borne over the mountain range upon the lips of terrified travelers, a name not spoken but whispered, as if in fear it might perhaps answer back.

    Carrigul. Once a small settlement, but now rumored to be growing, spreading, plague-like. The tides may soon be turning for all of Mossflower.

    redwallsurvivor.com/forums/index.php: Mossflower Odyssey is the latest Redwall Survivor Contest!

    Applications due May 31st. Contest rules can be read here: redwallsurvivor.com/forums/index.php?topic=636.0.

    What are these contests?
    Based roughly after the Survivor television show and set in the Redwall universe, these contests involve writing a story together with the other contestants. Contestants apply by writing a short scene showcasing their character, and are then selected either by judges, the audience, or a combination of both. Each week, the audience votes for their least favorite character, and the one with the most votes is eliminated from the story, usually with the writer killing off their character. Once the playing field has been narrowed to a small handful of contestants (usually about three), a winner is chosen by the audience, and the story concludes.




    If you have any questions, come join the forums and give me a poke! My name here is the same one there. Thanks, guys!

    OOPS. I screwed up my introduction. Sorry! I thought I fixed that... ( . .)

    HERE IS THE NEW ONE PLEASE IGNORE MY LAST POST DAAHHH.

    Heyo! my name is Sycamore! I've been around the ROC for a good few years, ever since 2004 or so when I really kind of threw myself into the fray. That was back when Terrouge was super big.

    Anyway, I came here with an announcement, but I didn't know the exact appropriate place to put this, so I'm posting it here! Sorry if it's the wrong place!
