Nocturnum: The Unstoppable Contest
This Unstoppable Contest is over
and here are the winning entries!.
For those who are curious, the original contest specifications are
In honor of our first computer explosion, and with the generous help
Fantasy Flight Games,
we're having a deep, dark contest about when things go wrong.
And we're offering three copies of Nocturnum as prizes, for those
who act before July 7!
We're going for short writing creativity with this. Write the best
horror, Lovecraftian, or 'great master' prose on the theme of
unstoppable terror, catastrophic disaster, or darkness itself.
Gothic, vampire, existential, it's all equally worth babbling
insanely about to us. You can write of a dark night, an unstoppable
disaster, or a moment of terror. Anything that evokes horror.
Submit your short prose. You get bonus points for pieces that
involve unexpected night, personal terror, and lovecraftian
horror. Entries will be taken and judged by our RPGnet staff
(plus one hamster) and the best selections (in term of prose
quality, creativity, and edible content) will win a free copy
of the Call of Cthulhu sourcebook, "Nocturnum".
And, we'll web-publish the best entries for your fame to spread
wide and far. Entries need not be long, simply elegant, evocative,
or even humorous. But they must involve terror.
