Writing and Setting Contest
Closing Date - 7th June 2021
Top Prize - $20 Amazon or Drivethru RPG credit


As part of the site launch and to encourage people to post as much of what they've created as possible we're holding a fanwork contest for fleshed out, longer form written content. It could be a story or fiction, a write up of a location, an NPC write up or something similar. Basically anything thats not mechanics that wouldn't look out of place in an Exalted book. We don't mind if it's specific to one edition or another, just make it clear which it is when you post it. We know this one's a little open ended and unfocused, but we want to give people the oppertunity to enter as much from a wide range as possible right now.

Entries are going to be based on how cool and original your work is, rather than just length. A good metric is that if your work inspires the judges to want to use or put their own spin on something you've posted then it's the sort of thing we're going to rate highly.

The only rule is that it has to be work you've made or own yourself. You're free to enter as many times as you like with as much art as you want, and non-winning entries are always eligible for future contests.

To enter simply make sure your writing is posted on a thread in it's appropriate forum, then reply to this thread with a link to your piece. This way you don't have to double post here and even when the contest is done your work will still be there for people to see and comment on in the right place. You can link to specific posts by clicking the timestamp in the post body.

Entries close at the end of 7th June GMT and once we have them the mods and admins will take a look and cut things down to a 5 entry shortlist. From this we're hoping to have one or two friendly OPP freelancers decide an overall winner but if not it will be the site staff. All 5 shortlisted finalists however will get to have a "Contest Winner" rank below their avatar for the next few months.

Entering the contest gives us no rights to your work, it's still yours to do what you want with. We just ask that if you win you try and make sure it stays accessible to people in one form or another in future.

Thanks for the entries! I think it's fair to say all of these make a decent shortlist so we'll review and announce a winner in the next few days
