0Gargolock has shared some Chaos Dwarf news on the video game front with us. No, not Total War: Warhammer III yet!

The game Mount and Blade: Warband sports a Warhammer Fantasy mod called Warsword Conquest. In November 2018 they released an update which among other things added Chaos Dwarfs! Previously Chaos Dwarfs were in the game as rare bandits inside Ostermark, Ostland and Kislev but now we are playable:

Mount and Blade is an action RPG game with tactical elements and combat in which you can conquer the world for yourself or another pre-existing faction. For the sake of map size issues, Chaos Dwarfs have been placed in western Norsca and Albion instead of expanding the world to include the Dark Lands, but that obviously just means we've conquered these pesky Northmen and built mighty ziggurats in the cold and wet provinces up north!

It seems we're going places. Takes Hat off

Zanko Presents: The 12th Scribe's Contest writing competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online!

We are pleased to announce that this Scribe's Contest has been sponsored by Zanko. There will be one prize of this unpainted Forge World Daemonsmith for the Gold winner:

”In faraway realms of mortals and magical worlds, tales tell of malevolent mariners steaming upon the Sea of Drowned Sorrows, striking out from a monstrous city of industry that stands artificially out in the middle of the ocean: The infernal Zharr Vyxa, where twisted Duardin siphons the raw energy of death from within dark waters.

Darkness and mystery surrounds these baleful creatures, and hellfire at the horizon remain a potent omen of doom for all sailors lost upon the waves. Yet one thing is known: By these people, you do not want to be taken alive...

These are the words of the Roaming Ones.“

Subject Matter: On Dark Tides
The theme for this writing competition is seafaring, piracy, naval action, coastal raids, shipwrecks, divers, shipyards and everything pertaining to Chaos Dwarfs and the ocean! This is an open format theme, meaning that almost any type of background text and fiction about Dawi Zharr seafaring will be accepted.

Your entry could consist of a mysterious traveller's tale in an inn or under an open night sky; Kurgan legends; a conversation with a Daemon; heretical writings or a secret trial against a blasphemer; or something else entirely.

Note that this contest is a celebration of our glimpse of Zharr Vyxa in Age of Sigmar, courtesy of Thommy H's unceasing lookout in the mast. Yet like other contests that are based upon a Chaos Dwarf phenomenon in a particular setting, you can enter writings set in whatever worlds you fancy, including the Old World.

Writing Rules
The word limit for each entry is 10-400 words in total. Since this is an open format theme, you may write your entry as one or more quotes, proverbs, tales, songs, stories etc. Descriptive background texts about the being of (of the kind you may find in any army book) and fiction from the perspective of one or more characters (of the kind you may find in any Black Library novel) are allowed. Entries from any setting featuring evil Dwarrows are of course welcome!

All entries are to be written "in-universe", meaning no lines about D6s or green stuff are allowed. See the General Rules.

You are encouraged to ask Admiral about whether your entry meet the requirements or not, should you be unsure.

Please spellcheck your entry before submission. Even so, to help even the field for the non-native English speakers, Admiral may correct grammar and spelling mistakes within the limits of his grasp of the English language.

Inspiration Sources
Anything can be your inspiration, including your latest tabletop game. See the Guidelines, and Chaos Dwarf Stories & Background Section. (You are not allowed to copy someone else's work!)

Please read the full rules and guidelines that apply to the Scribe's Contest competition before submitting your entry!

Deadline: 11:59 PM 26th of April 2019 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Submit your entry by PM to the Scribe account before the deadline. Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (You have about 2 weeks to complete your entry.)

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff before the deadline. In order to avoid problems, we strongly advise entrants not to wait until the very last minute to submit their entries... As things can and do go wrong at the last minute. Please do not send entries to individual Admin or Staff members to submit on your behalf as they may not check their PMs!

How to Enter
Write one or more pieces of fiction or background about Chaos Dwarfs following the subject theme, invented by you, and send a PM to Scribe (a special user that all Staff have access to) containing the entry. The moderator organizing the contest will then check the inbox one or a few days before deadline and verify to each entrant that their submission was received.

If you win
- Take your place in the upcoming Scribe's Contest Hall of Fame (soon to be created!), where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Scribe's Contest medal for your online persona:
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 40 people enter we award 40 slaves to each person who entered.
- If you win Gold, you'll win a dungeon clutter model prize, courtesy of Zealot Wargames.

Entries will count towards a participation medal, which is the simpler Scribe's Contest equivalent of Artisan's Contest and Golden Hat veteran medals.

As usual once all entries are received a voting thread will be created. If there are any questions please PM me, another Staff member or post them here.

Subject Matter: On Dark Tides (Chaos Dwarfs and the sea).
Deadline: 11:59 PM 26th of April 2019 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)

If any forum members would like to aid Scribe's Contest by donating models or other materials as prizes for future competitions, feel free to contact myself or one of the Staff to help sort out details.

Now, carve your tablet. Sharpen your pen and dip it in fresh slave blood, for Hashut demands words!

  Community Awards 2018 - Voting!
Posted by: Admiral - 04-06-2019 04:26 AM - No Replies
0All voting for the Community Awards for 2018 will take place via this thread. Past years we have always opened a new subforum with voting polls for the different categories, but Admiral do not have the knowhow to make this happen, so we will instead vote by PM just like we do in our regular contest. We are, by the way, much in need of new, active Staff members with some grasp of things technical: Volunteers wanted! Wink

Unlike past years we've also dispensed with the nominations step and the Staff has accepted on behalf of the nominees in order to speed up the process. If this presents a problem we will address it at that point.

Deadline to vote
Tuesday 11:59 PM the 9th of April 2019 CET.

How to vote?
Send a PM to the Staff account (a special account all Staff members can access), with 1 vote/name for each category, or at least those categories you wish to vote for.

Get your votes in to recognize our outstanding members who have been nominated.
