Well, this is my first time entering a contest like this in the forums so it's very exciting to me. I hope that I didn't write too much and it disqualifies me D:

If anyone wants to see what my entry was, it's called Bringers of Night and Day. Here's
my story.

Anyway, I looked at people's ideas and a lot of them are pretty interesting. I liked the one with the Cthulions (wait... that's how it was spelled... right?).

Good luck to everyone for sure though.

EDIT: Gah... I think I have some typos D:

@ Chaos Mage: I wouldn't think too much dialogue would be a problem. After all, we want GOOD releases, not bad ones, right? I wrote a fairly long quest too. This is really good timing cuz I've had an idea for a quest but never posted it in suggestions, so why not post it during a contest? Only about 8 entries now though lol. Got till the end of February.

So I included different dialogue depending on alignment, and I've got (approx) 73 lines of dialogue if you're alignment is Evil and 99 lines if you're Good. Hopefully 19 over won't matter. It averages out to only 5 over.

We need MOAR CONTESTS!!! This is awesome. I can't wait to see other people's entries. :)

@ jsrjohnny:

Hmm that's true. And I did count that I have exactly 80 lines of dialogue (though some lines can be bulky D:) But the idea is there. I could have written more but the limits where there and I did not want to risk being disqualified.

I love to write stories and this contest actually jump started my creativity again. So yay. I would have even given samples of my artwork to add to the enemy/monster and item designs but I lack a scanner to make it work.

I edited mine quite a few times,hope that when we put down our entries they're given a second look.I made many mistakes and after submitting,had to make many changes.It's complete now though.

Oh i see,good to know vox.I was really nervous.This is one of the most excited times iv'e had in aq.Whoever wins here will be a delight to me,all of us tried after all.I have an idea of who the winner is already,but let's see if my prediction comes true.

I read a few and some people are really good at this Good luck to all.

The first time i thought i was "finished" i had only about 60 or so lines, so coming up with 20 more when you think you're done isn't the easiest of tasks :P But i'm happy with my quest and wish you all the best.

is 80 lines the maximum or the minimum?
AQ DF MQ AQW  Post #: 61

Ms. Eukara Vox, should our entries be in an Encyclopedia-ish format, or writing it in a narrative prose style is alright as well? I can't seem get creativity to flow to my fingertips if I write it in a somehow... "too stiff and restrained" way of making scripts.

Well, good luck to those who will win! :)

80 lines is probably a guideline, since not all quests are that long and not all quests are that short.

@sir lane: It says one quest.

Well i had edited some lines in it and i thought it was long. By right it was a little short.

What do you all think of my entry, I thought Archmagus's Cthulion quest was always funny.

I added a few lines to that for flavour, plus two battles because 6 normals and 2 bosses isn't enough... Was the big red sign a nice one that says I edited it, Euky?

@Above: Thanks. Also, I like your entry, but I don't think Illimister's reaction to the heroes breaking down the wall is realistic. >.>

ArchMagus: Well, I actually did that one on purpose, cause you could say he made himself calm, because they would've thought he would've brought them harm if he provoked them at all, you, you, gimme a second here! I casually have some of the most realistic reactions, I just didn't state he was forcing himself into calmness. Suppose I could make that little fix.

Writing your entry in narrative style will require not only for art people to do your art, but then you are requiring one of the writers, most likely me, since this is a contest I sponsored, to rewrite your story into a script. I would rather not do that, as much could be lost or something not written properly.

I would prefer it be written as script. There's nothing to say that you can't start out with it somewhat narrative, then switch to script once you have the story fleshed out.

And edited entries, as long as you tell us you edited, will be looked at again. No worries.

If you come up with new stuff that would require the art team to work from scratch, do so with the knowledge that new stuff, from scratch takes a lot of time. Keep your new stuff to a minimum to avoid creating too much work for our very busy Art People.

And yes, stats and such will be done by the team.

My monsters are just...recolors...and so are the weapons.
And I was nice enough to add Eukara to the quest.
As an NPC and a monster!

This is so cool! We need more contests. I'm really hyped just from entering even though I've got pretty low chances of winning. :P Mine was actually inspired by a nightmare I once had that made me stay up for 3 days straight.... Yeah.

May the best writer win!

Just got my entry in, though I would have liked to draw it out a bit more, and try to get some tensions to mount as various people get killed off, and the townsfolk go mad trying to save themselves, turning on one another as our character is helpless to stop them...

But I'll settle for what I submitted. Older town, old monster and old and unused War Room in the Guardian Tower all feature centre stage in my story :P

^ Got a typo (or at least I think it's one):

Guardian: Sir, we have received some disturbing reports about several murders in Lolosia. The local dispatch of Guardians has absolutely leads, and one of their number is among the dead.
Captain: (frown) No leads?

And here I was beginning to think it was magic the way we carried everything around...
