Bain posted this earlier, but I made a new one. Preliminary rules are as follows:

The deadline is August 1, 2008 at 11:59 pm board time. Scenarios from both Blades of Exile and Blades of Avernum will be accepted. The categories will likely be similar to last time including Newcomer category. To be eligible, you must not have had an entry in a previous annual contest (does not include short scenario, 1/10, or other "themed" contests).

More to follow later.

*sigh*

I probably won't be able to finish my scenario in time. It's going to be so complicated that it's taking quite a while to make, and I want to incorporate some new features from OBoE, so I'll have to wait till that's ready, and by that time, I'll be back in school. I'll have to wait for contest 10. Still willing to judge, however.

I'd be willing to judge, assuming I can both submit an entry and judge.

I don't know if TNS will be out by then, as I'm such a slow designer. I can always try, though.

On the other hand, I might have a chat with Nikki pretty soon...

What do I have to do with it? :P

Pencil my name in. I have far too many ideas and half-finished short scenarios to keep me busy for a few months when I get BoA-ing again, but that deadline is just huge, and I have a perfect-sized plot for it.

(Bump.)

It would be great if this contest info was easier to find on the boards... And/or somewhere.

On the grounds that we have very few scenarios out there that weren't either in the 1/10 contest or the 24 hr contest, I'd like to propose that we move the deadline back a bit.

I hope to have something out by that deadline, but considering how time flew by, I wouldn't be against an extension.

I doubt Muffins n' Hell will win, but it will be a first scenario.

I've been working on a scenario off and on for awhile now. I suppose I should devote a little more effort to it.

Assuming there is another, it'll be after this contest.

Speaking of which, I have an idea for it. How about sub-categories that the scenario can win as well, such as best scripting, best plot, best graphics, etc.? It'd be a way to recognize those scenarios that excel in one specific area, even if they don't win the main contest itself.

That is a good idea, but the lack of scenarios contributed might prevent it from being worthwhile.

All of the scenarios that competed in the 1/10 and the 24 Hour contests are eligible for this one. So, actually, this might have more participants than the last one.

And it isn't all that complex. It'd work by having each judge vote for a single scenario for each category. The one with the most votes wins. In the event of a tie, both or all three would get a group win.

Are there more details on this contest somewhere?

Is the deadline still two weeks away, and where can I send the scenarios?

This thread is now linked to from the News page on SW's home. Start spreading the news, and posting the scenarios which you want entered. That goes for Blades of Exile scenarios as well.

Yay, thanks for all the help Salmon.

Of course I'll be entering Kill Them Dead to add some variety but, if I keep with it, I'll have another scenario ready by then too.
