Here's the fun news folks. It's contest time again! This time it's a story contest. All you have to do is be a member of the Fleet and registered on the forums and website. The story can be about your character, an event your character may have gone through, or something Star Trek related. There really are not too many restrictions. Just keep in mind that these missions will be turned into Foundry Missions and the authors of the story will be credited in the game description and may possibly(depending on the plot) be placed in the mission as well.
The contest starts today and goes until 31 July 2013 and 3 stories will be chosen by 10 August 2013 by judges, from there the three stories will be voted on through the forums via the Fleet from 11 August to 18 August. By 19 August the winners will be announced and the prizes awarded.
So be sure to keep up with both sites and see what's going on and check out the stories. There is a sample of a story(http://tftfsto.freeforums.org/new-contest-example-t52.html
) there to give a idea of something. The sample is not intended as a template and I do not expect anyone to use the format in the sample as it is just that. I want your imagination to fill your mind and hands and write what works for you.
Post all stories in the Ten Forward/The Stage section of the Forums in the Contest Threadhttp://tftfsto.freeforums.org/story-contest-thread-t55.html
I wish everyone the best and look forward to all your entries.
