Warfare

Contestants are required to write a speculative, short, high-concept prose story, in a warfare setting. "[Warfare are] a subgenre of speculative fiction that emphasizes romantic, extreme action, set mainly or entirely in the battlefield, generally involving conflict between opponents possessing advanced technologies and abilities. Perhaps the most significant trait of Warfare is the lore, characters, battles, powers, and themes tend to be very large-scale.

I wasn't serious with the whole 5 people thing. The contest will not start before the icon contest ends, either way. D:

Lets try this one; it requires nothing else then your document.

A arena moderator havent given us the alright yet... Also whenever this will happend idk, since deolrin is inactive and probly not returning. If i got acces to host it i would sure do/ but we cant just start whenever we want.

Deolrin
12-06-2011, 04:52 PM
So do you guys want that?
I could probably arrange it up tomorrow. How many are participating? I promise I'll start it in time, this time around... :P

RDCKraken
12-06-2011, 05:14 PM
Is the other guys still here? if not, we need to wait.

idodik
12-06-2011, 09:33 PM
I'm totally here and up for starting this contest! :D

This looks pretty fun. I'd join this. Its been years since I wrote but it could be fun...

Deolrin

Find me one more person who's joining for sure, and I'm starting it. :)

idodik
12-08-2011, 01:00 PM
Wait, if we're two contestants and waiting for one more, who'll be the judge? :S

RDCKraken
12-08-2011, 01:44 PM
I think the arena moderator will; Deolrin.

Deolrin
12-08-2011, 01:55 PM
No, I won't be judge, and we have three participants, waiting for one more.
We'll find a judge later. :P

Voxel
12-08-2011, 07:40 PM
Who are the contestants?

- Nevermind, silly question. :oops:

Deolrin
12-12-2011, 12:14 PM
So, guys, what's going on with this? Can you guys find one more person? I'd really like to get it started. :3

idodik
12-12-2011, 12:21 PM
I know that i want to participate, and that Bugz does. =\

Deolrin
12-12-2011, 01:20 PM
And Voxel does, so one more person. :P

I think that's enough. We just need a judge.

Guys, listen to me. Even if three contestants is enough, no one can assure us that all three of you will submit an entry. The holidays are here, and surely at least some of you\us will be busy with their families. If I am perfectly frank, I believe that we should wait at least for the BETA of HotS before we start a contest, or until this site is more active again, or else it will be a pointless 1-contestant contest. If all three of you SERIOUSLY want me to start, I will, but honestly... I don't believe this is a good time to start a contest. Perhaps if one more person showed up as a contestant, sure, but I still wouldn't think it's a great idea.

Perhaps after the holidays is a better idea, but the concept of "when this site will be more active" is not at all realistic. Isn't it simply you pulling out of this contest? I mean the activity of this site is focused and will be focused in the near future in members which are gamers of hosted projects, and not modders which actually care about the site. (at least that's most probable)
As I said I don't mind waiting until the holidays are over, but there's no point in waiting longer than that.

Well... I'm just saying that, seeing how that last contest went, I'm presuming this one will be just as much of a disappointment. But again, if you, Creutz and Voxel REALLY want me to just start the contest and stop bullshitting around, go ahead and say so, I'll start it ASAP. Just post here and I'll get it going. All 3 of you.

RDCKraken

For me you can start, i dont know about the others.

idodik
12-25-2011, 10:00 PM
I'll wait until the holidays and then I'll be ready to start the contest.

Deolrin
12-25-2011, 10:12 PM
What about the third guy, then? :P
