Well, a few of you have asked when we're gonna do this, I think we should get the ball rolling now.
There will be a slight change with this contest, but it should hopefully make sense.

Its unfortunate, but I have to admit we have not enough entries to run this contest.

However, I am extending the deadline for this Contest by Two Weeks.

This means you have until December 8th to enter a Short Story. Voting will be held between December 9th throught to December 15th, with the winner announced on the 16th.

Please do not abuse this extension.

Any chance we can submit something that is based on a game still in development?

Proved Provided it is a Wargame, of course :)

And I'm sure the developers would probably appreciate the fan-made fluff as support ;)

Since I'm the one working on it, it's a good excuse to do some background. :P

I'll see if I can get something written.

I think I'm going to include a rule for Fiction contests.

- Ensure your entry has a relavent title.

I've had a few that don't have a title, which is a little awkward :P
