The 'Creepy Campfire Stories' Contest is Open !!
#1
Hello Everyone !!


Rogue-Nation's new Writers Contest is now Open !!!


The Theme :

The Rules :


  • The Contest is open to everyone; members, staff and admins.

    Only one entry per participant; so make it count !

    Entries may not be longer than two (2) posts long.

    Pictures are allowed as long as they contribute to the story.

    No videos allowed. See the guidelines as to why; hint...it's close to midnight and we're in the woods for God sakes...





The Guidelines :


You, the writer, are the narrator. We, the readers, are all sitting with you around a campfire. It's close to midnight and the darkness of the night has really set in...and aside from the campfire giving all of us a shadowy glimpse of each other, it's pitch black out there. Our chatter is interrupted at times by those creepy sounds coming from the woods...


So you have to write your story as if you are talking to us, telling us a creepy story that'll make our blood freeze...


Your story may be about ghosts, ghouls, vampires, zombies, aliens, tragedies, a paranormal experience gone wrong or any other crazy creepy stuff your imagination can muster...

  • Your story MUST be an original. NOT a story you've written before, copied and pasted, thinking that it applies here. Points will be awarded for Originality.


    Your story MUST be creepy. That's the whole purpose of this contest. It should give us goosebumps if we were to read it around a real campfire; in the woods, close to midnight. Keep it clean however; it may be graphic but keep it within reason. Points will be awarded for Creepiness.


    You MUST start with the suffix [HAL2016] before your title.


    You MUST write 'The End' at the end of your story (be it one or two posts when you're done) so that we know your story has ended its course.

    The Contest will last three (3) weeks and will end Tuesday, November 1st, 2016.




The Judges :


OmegaLogos has volunteered to monitor and moderate the event; we joyfully agreed. Curse words are allowed within your story as long as they have a good reason to be. As mentioned, your entry will be judged on Originality and Creepiness AND a Voting Poll will also be up to gather points. One vote = One point.


There will be a panel of three (3) judges.


IMPORTANT :


For the very first time since we've had writers contests, there will only be ONE winner. The story with the most points (awarded for Originality and Creepiness; which will be given from a scale of 1 to 10... ( 1 for absolutely disastrous to 10 for Absolutely awesome ) / and the Voting Poll) will merit its rightful author one of our very own Rogue-Nation gears !!!


If two (2) or three (3) stories end up in a tie, the contest will be prolonged and those participants in a tie will have to submit a second story for judging. If a tie occurs once again...ALL of those in a tie will win.




The Prize :


As mentioned, Rogue-Nation gears. Meaning a Rogue-Nation T-Shirt for him or her, or a Rogue-Nation Tank-Top for her, or a Rogue-Nation Coffee Mug...which will be sent right to your door !!!!


Our good friend and Moderator DuckforcoveR has been able to obtain our very own coffee mugs and pictures will follow.



Now how COOL is that ?!?!?!?



Oh man...THIS gives me the creeps... <--- that's the type of story we are wishing for...



GOOD LUCK !!!

What...?!

To sit outside on a rotting piece of wood and stare into a pyre of dead wood,
whilst the dark forest around you rustles with sounds of God-knows-what?

To listen to an imaginary account that is deliberately designed to disturb your
sleep later and stop you from leaving the tent to urinate?

To hear about some terrible degrading things that humanity is capable of
conjuring-up -in the sick hopes of the narrator it makes the listeners bodies
react in the manner used in fight-or-flight situations?

To subconsciously force men to slowly place a hand in front of their testicles
and demand women to fold their arms across their bosoms with the deceitful
gesture that they're intently interested about the snogging-couple in the car
and the grinning man with the hook for a hand?

To question your own bravery as you pull up your pants from your night time
ablutions and ignore the blinking 'too-far-apart' eyes in the nearby bushes?

To wonder -as you finally drift off to sleep just before dawn, whether they
really did catch the sodomising, axe-carrying maniac that was purported to
inhabit these woods?

Er... Well, yes. I would like to hear these types of yarns, please.

In regards of the sodomising, axe-wielding maniac... no, they did not catch him.
And after accepting rent for the use of my shed, I hid his axe.

I've read all of the stories that have been submitted so far and man....am I ever happy I won't have to judge in the background on any of those !!!!

Just amazing !

And with roughly 2 more weeks to go, there's still plenty of room for those who haven't jumped in yet !

Looking forward to more !!!

Sol.


P.S. Expect a curve ball on the 24th.... tinydrroling

As there are 7 days left in this writers contest and it's time to throw a curve ball !!!!


SWISSSSSSHHHHHHH.......



- The eligible number of entries per participant has been raised to 2 (two). So if you haven't participated yet, there is room for you to bring in two stories. If you've already submitted one, you may now submit a second one, doubling you chances of winning !


- The Winning List has gone from 1 Winner to 2 Winners. As the entries are being polled and judged in the background, those of you who submit two stories have a chance of winning TWICE !


No longer a Rogue-Nation T-Shirt OR a Rogue-Nation Coffee Mug if you win but now a possibility for A Rogue-Nation T-Shirt AND a Rogue-Nation Coffee Mug !!!



7 days. Tic-toc....tic-toc....
