CWC I:
Tragic Duel

For this first contest, we will focus on something tragic; a battle between two great heroes that face off against eachother, no matter who is victorious, a great hero will fall. Who are these heroes, for what do they fight for and what have lead them to come to this bloody conclusion?

The prize, donated by Graynar, is this custom set called "Shadow Knight Attack Craft", featuring Vladek and two Shadow Knights with rare normal red torso prints and an old-style skeleton.



Nicelydiddely! Now, to thee rules:
1. 3 Picture limit, you can upload more in a separate folder, but only 3 will be judged.
2. All types of MOCs are allowed, vignettes, battle scenes, castles, vessels... As long as it is castley enough, border-steampunk is allowed as well.
3. A story is required, obviously. It does not matter as much as the MOC itself, but does give it extra depth and may help.
4. For the background story there is a 400 word limit.
5. No already existing stories about two clashing heroes, thanks. This is a story forum for a reason. :P
6. Remember the focus of this contest- the battle between two heroes, don't get carried away (though it could help). ;)

Judges:
Graynar- Donator of prize, creator of contest
The Hordesman- Generic henchman
Quillmaster- Admin, site creator

This contest will end the 25th July

This is gonna be awesome! Really, I'm so excited about this, I'll have an entry ready by the end of the week. I can't thank you guys enough for running this, special thanks to Graynar for donating to me that sweet MOC. ;)


You should inform the people at Classic Castle and the other AFOL sites. We could use some new members.

By "no already existing stories", does that exclude battles from our own universes/stories?

Really excited for this, sounds like something I have the pieces to make.

That is allowed, though preferably not events that will occur in the story but background or an event that takes place elsewhere in the story. ;)

Lovely idea! I am so going to enter. And thanks for taking some initiatives to keeping this forum going.. Quilly and I have been kind of slow as of late ;)

Yet we could fight war and all its excrescences by releasing, each day, the love that is shackled inside us, and giving it a chance to live."

I was going to ask about that. It looks like I'm good.

Aye! Speaking of Quilly, does anybody know what happened to him? Is he even aware this contest is going on. :blink:

Another question, sorry if i missed it...
Is there a limit to how many entries we came make?
With the deadline so far, I was considering making more than one entry...
