I for one would love nothing better than to take on all challengers in a test of wordplay and gribbly prose. If there's one thing I enjoy almost as much as writing, it's reading other's material, and competitors are always welcome for me.

So how about we throw around some ideas as to the theme, and at the same time we'll see how many people are interested in doing this or not. It'll be a fresh break for me from the other Tyranid writing projects I'm involved in at the moment.

Which brings me to my next point - if you're following my 'Tasty' series on the Fiction board, don't worry I'm still hard at work on that. My posting rate has slowed down to more like 2-3 a week than one plus a day, but I have no intention of letting it die out. Perhaps this contest will be the jumpstart I need to stop being so lazy again :roll: .

My last concern is, I don't know how many other competitions are going on/about to get started at the present, but the great thing about writing short stories is it doesn't really get in the way of the other facets of the hobby. I know I usually still have plenty of time to paint and play campaigns at the local gamestore, so hopefully we can fit this one in with any others that might be in the works right now.

Anyways, discuss.

Whether the story must be done from a Tyranid point-of-view or not is one of the details we need to figure out, among other things. Don't assume whatever I say, goes, please not at all. :) Anyone who is going to take part in the competition has a say in what the requirements are, and whatever the group agrees upon is what we'll do.

So far we have three people interested, including myself. Any more takers?

I may be interested, though I would have to read some fluff to get the gist of how it's presented. I would count me as half an entrant for this reason, as I may balk after comparing the fluff style to what I'm comfortable doing and mitigating this against time constraints with other projects... such as, oh, I don't know, finishing putting my army together. lol

I like the idea of writing some stuff about warriors. They need some love.

Maybe you shouldn't fix the viewpoint so people can write either oppositon viewpoint, nid viewpoint or a mix.

Maybe extend your tentative deadline to say the 15th?
I am a student after all. Even homework has to be done sometime....

I disagree with the lack of Genstealer cults, I personally feel they would be one of the easiest tyranids to write about.

The thing that makes them dull is reading story after story about them infecting human habitations.

Either way, depending on the date it ends i'd be more than happy to write or judge.

Genestealer Invasions... ON DIFFRENT SPIECES NO HUMANS! :D I could run it cause I wouldn't be biased (since I won't/shouldn't write one :lol: )

and/or Little Know Nids no this will not be about rippers, unless you want too :wink: . You would write about little know nids Zoans, Biovores, rippers, Dominatrix, norn queens, other bio titans, ect... I'd need help cause i haven't had the chance to read much tyranid literature.

Whatcha think? This will allow for more then one contest with out stories getting repetitive (hopefully).

oops I thought i put down warriors :P here's another possible idea for a story if anyone's interested. Boarding action, where tyranid invade a ship. it would be a great way to introduce a genestealer infection. :twisted:
