    Overview
    The goal of this contest is to inspire the people of Mibba to write a high fantasy story. Don't know what a high fantasy is? Well, let me tell you:

    A high fantasy is a story set in an alternate fantasy world, different from the real world. For examples, you can look at J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings series, or George R.R. Martins A Song of Ice and Fire (adapted into the TV show Game of Thrones), as well as Dungeons and Dragons. There are plenty more examples than these, though, so for further reading you may skim the Wikipedia page for the high fantasy genre.

    Rules
    • Mibba guidelines, all that jazz.
    • Stories MUST be high fantasy -- any story that does not establish a world different from that of the real world will be disqualified.
    • Prewrites are allowed! I find that contests that only accept special-written stories eventually die.
    • You may enter up to 2 stories.
    • Any length is allowed, just note that I work and I attend classes full time, and therefore may not be able to finish reading a long story.
    • NC-17 rating is only allowed for violence and mild sex-scenes (along the line of A Song of Ice and Fire). I do not want to read erotica.
    • Alert me of any username changes, drop-outs, or title changes.
    Deadlines & Dates
    Deadline to enter & submit will be May 18th.
    Winning entries will be announced by June 1st.


    Extensions are available but are not preferred.

    Prizes
    • All entries will receive a comment of constructive criticism and a thorough overview of my opinion on the entry.
    First Place:
    • A layout + banner, and cover. (cover can be front, front + back, or like a hardcover jacket).
    • A place in a rec blog.
    Second Place
    • A layout + banner, or a book cover.
    • A place in a rec blog.
    Third Place
    • A layout + banner, or a book cover.
    • OR a place in a rec blog.

    Oh, I think I'd like to try too. I've had some fantasy ideas rattling around my brain for years, but I've always been afraid to write them. Maybe this will give me the push!

    @ deep space;
    Sadly, I have to drop out of the contest. I thought I had a good idea for it, but I keep running around with it and all the words I come up with are unsatisfactory. Sad I am sorry, and good luck with the contest. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
