Scribe's Contest VIIAdmiral 04-11-2016


Chaos Dwarfs Online Presents: The 7th Scribe's Contest writing competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online - Sports Edition!

This Scribe's Contest has been sponsored by Ravenswood. There will be one prize of this unpainted Bezhukk the Immortal miniature for the Gold winner:


Hunter has kindly donated the original drawing of Balhutti-Zhurekar the Decrepit as he emerges from the Bubbling Pits wreathed in flame. An amazing piece of art for the lucky silver winner!



"Goooaaal! It's a GOAL! A bloody, magnificient unparallelled goal! G-o-a-l-err-h! Did you see that, Ham?"
"Sure did, Krogg. Straight out of textbook."
"Cheatnote, rather, by the look of those fans. They're all jumping onto the pitch!"
"Hahaha, now look at that Hobgoblin run! Silly stuff. Ouch! One moment scoring, the next dead."
"Well, so is Blood Bowl, Ham."
"Indeed, Krogg! The fans have both teams surrounded, but why are the mobs attacking their own teams...?"
"Duck! Now they're throwing Gnoblars!"
"Watchout!"
"There went the cheerleaders! Yuck!"
"It's doom on the pitch today. Havoc! Bloody mayhem!"
"Sure is, Krogg."
"Now the referee's gone. In four different directions at once. Oooh, pretty nice quartering there by those Amazon fans!"
"For sure! An' do you know what those curses and obscenities are? Those vomited from tusked mouths, like that sod's blood 'n' guts spewed all over his curlybeard? D'you know what them acid words are, Krogg?"
"No, tell me, Ham!"
"Those are the last words of the players..."





Subject Matter: Fouls and Fumbles - Blood Bowl Chaos Dwarfs
The theme for this writing competition is Chaos Dwarfs in Blood Bowl. This is an open format theme, meaning that almost any type of background text and fiction about Chaos Dwarfs, Hobgoblins and bloodsoaked fantasy football will be accepted, within the rules detailed below.

Your entry could consist of a novel-style story of pitch brawl; or a description of a team's bloodsoaked career through a cup; or a veteran pitch survivor or fan retelling an exciting match; or the frenetic ramblings of match commentators; the apothecary's butcher bill through a league with added notes; reporters interviewing hooligans for supporter's quotes; or even an Old World/Age of Sigmar vision of an incomprehensible bloodsport glimpsed through feverish nightmares granted by Daemons in spite; or something else entirely. Give us your vision of some Chaos Dwarfs in Blood Bowl!


Writing Rules
The word limit for each entry is 30-250 words in total. Inventive ways to write entries are encouraged. Your entry may be split into several parts (e.g. two first-person perspective stories, or one gory match description, a coach quote and an apothecary's bill).

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.


Spellcheck
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 Blood Bowl game. Also, 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 24h of April 2016 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 something regarding Chaos Dwarfs or Hobgoblins in Blood Bowl, 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 (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 model prize, courtesy of Ravenswood.
- If you win Silver, you'll win an original drawing, courtesy of Hunter.


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.


Summary
Subject Matter: Fouls and Fumbles - Blood Bowl Chaos Dwarfs
Deadline: 11:59 PM 24h of April 2016 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 and open your ale. Load up the shout-voice and curl hands into fists. Sharpen your pen and dip it in player's blood fresh off the pitch, for Hashut demands slogans and swearwords galore!

Fingers crossed for quite a mass attendance. Just like the football game itself, this is best played with a mass of pitch thugs - er, players!

@Jackswift: Thanks! Haha, no, that excerpt is only there as a sum-up of Blood Bowl and a piece of inspiration. Hopefully it works that way. Happy


Update: Hunter has kindly donated the original drawing illustrating the Origins of the K'daai Oracle. An amazing prize for the silver winner!

Bump, block and tackle. Fun is the leadword here. Oh, and havoc. Occasionally even involving a ball!

Blimey. 250 words doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room, does it? Still - done.

And mine is in.  I concur.  250 words was a challenge.  Happy with the result, though getting the idea fleshed out and clear within that limit was difficult.  Cheers, JR

Good job, folks! I was myself reminded of the narrow limits of 250 words when writing my entry. Got to raise it for the next contest.

Second last day to send in your entry. Don't miss the match!

Better luck next time. We can always recycle a Blood Bowl theme sometime in the future, should people want it. And go for Mordheim, Man o' War and other specialist game themes.
