RE Writing Contest



Well hey all you cool cats and kittens, with our site revival we think it's about time we add some new REs to spice up our character's lives. So, what better way to encourage as many new prompts as possible than some friendly competition? Pinn has very generously offered to donate a skin, table, and avatar set to the winner.

Rules


So without further ado, let's get down to the nitty gritty of the contest shall we? The rules are fairly simple, for every RE that you write and submit you get points, whoever gets the most points wins! This contest will run for two weeks and will end on February 3rd!

Now there are a few small caveats:
  1. Your REs must be new and cannot already be submitted to the contest or on this list of current REs.
  2. Since we don't currently have any packs, pack REs are only worth half a point, global and individual REs for any season are worth one point. We are also accepting new SoW drops, these submissions will also be worth one point.
  3. Please consider that some Random Events or SoW drops could happen anywhere. They should not be location/ecology specific.
