[Contest] May 2017: Redshirt Character Contest
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:57:48 AM »
May 2017 contest

This month's contest is a bit of fun, characterization, and narrative. The submissions for May will be the best red shirt characters you can think of. For those who do not know redshirts are destined to die to raise the stakes or show how mission critical a situation is. There have been many takes on the redshirt over the years but for this contest, you will have three parts to your submission.


1. Genre or IP they exist within. (Example: Scifi, Game of Thrones, Lovecraftian, Marvel, Horror, Mystery, etc)

2. Character Biography & Description --- Please do not exceed 1500 words

3. Scene or Short Story They Die In --- This can be in roleplay form or story form. It shouldn't exceed 1500 words though.

All submissions should be submitted to Admin@optionalrealities.com and be submitted as either googledocs or as a PDF. If you need to convert to a PDF you can use https://www.freepdfconvert.com/

1st Place wins 75 USD to a paypal of their choice or charity of their choice
2nd place wins 50 USD to a paypal of their choice or charity of their choice
3rd place wins 25 USD to a paypal of their choice or charity of their choice

All winners will be announced by June 3rd and all payments posted by June 7th. Good luck and have fun.
