Ugh, I guess I'll have to wait until the next contest then. I'm not even done with the prologue yet.

Hi guys! Just dropping in to say that I'm setting the deadline tentatively to April 15. Which is my brother's birthday. And also tax day.

I may still be willing to extend it if you're writing up 'til the last minute, but I'm definitely ending the contest some time in April. Plan your future accordingly. :P

Thanks!


Sweet. I have my third chapter written, I just need to find the dricve to type it into my computer and upload it. Heh.

Also: Can I toss in a fourth chapter? Chapters 1-3 pretty much build Aegir with Chapter 4 starting his first few missions.

I'm going to have to back out of the contest. I've got a job now and I just don't have the time.

Crap... now I am paying for my month-long thinking about one damn conversation, when I am still in the start! I must really start posting the chapters faster :P

Come on, guys! If you've only finished part of your entry, you could at least enter that part! :P I was hoping for a few entries here.

But if you don't have time, I understand. Just edit the links out of your original posts, or I will count them as an entry.

Saber-Scorpion, I have one question on NR, which will help me in writing my story. Can you look on it in NR Q/A topic?

My Nova Refuge short story, Foundation, is complete. It's right here. It ended up quite a bit longer than I expected, so I hope it's still considered short story length. I'll be away for the next week, so I needed to get it in by today. At least the deadline kept me motivated. I know El Taco and V. Metallic are still doing their Nova Refuge stories, but are we the only three?

Then out spake brave Horatius,

The Captain of the Gate:

"To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late.

And how can man die better

Than facing fearful odds,

For the ashes of his fathers,

And the temples of his gods."

Most likely. Others ended after second entry, or even first. I dont know how far El Taco is, but I am so far in length right behind you, even I see only a small dot (you and your Foundation) on the horizont :P At least in Nova Refuge Contest section.

I am going to go ahead and do this now. You all have until the end of April. After that, I'm just gonna have to wrap this up. I'm looking forward to reading the entries though!

I'm still planning to start the LEGO Video Games Vignette Contest this weekend though. I'll probably give it a very long deadline also.

You build a Video Game Vignette, it's as self-explanatory as it gets.

Maybe for you and everyone else, but I dont have LEGO, so I dont have an idea what it means, that part "vignette".

The LEGO community uses the word 'vignette' to describe a small scene usually built on a square base only a few studs wide, like the ones in the gallery Doodstormer linked to (click on the word "vignettes").

The objective of the contest will be to build a vignette or diorama based on a video game. ;)

(funny to think that this topic was supposed to be for entries only :P)
