Questors Bold III: The Voting Opens
Today, the semi-final voting opens for Questors Bold III. For those as yet unfamiliar with the concept, Questors Bold is a pass-a-long story/roleplay contest with a bit of a different twist-once a week the audience votes one of the writers out of the game, until only three players are left, at which point a winner is selected by the audience. This is the third Questors Bold-you can look at QBII here. ROC: Survivor! which inspired Questors Bold, can be viewed here.
Erin and I have gone through all the entries we received, and selected thirty of them-three in each category. All this month, these thirty contenders will be carefully scrutinized by the denizens of the Redwall Online Community, held up to various tests and standards in an attempt to find out which of them is the best. When all the votes are in, ten of them will become the Questors Bold.
We got a lot of really good entries this time-in some categories we were fairly swamped with great stuff. It was quite difficult for Erin and I to pick just three applications in each category, but after much discussion and thought we've got thirty entries, all of them strong contenders for the Final Ten. We considered such things as spelling, grammar, how interesting the character was and how well the scene 'flowed.' Now you get to vote for your favorites-just go here to read all the applications and make your choice. When you access the entries for each category, the three apps will be randomly ordered. When you've read them, you can use the form at the bottom of the page to place your vote in that category.
If your character didn't make it to the Thirty, and you'd like to know why (or just get a little constructive criticism), drop by the Terrouge forums and ask, or email us at email@example.com. Let us know the name and species of your character, of course-it'll be a bit difficult to give critique if we don't know who it's for! ^_^ There were entries we really liked, but there were a limited number of openings and we couldn't let everyone in, sadly. So feel free to ask questions-we're more than willing to give you some constructive criticism.
Notifications have gone out to the Thirty, but if you find you're in the voting and haven't received your notification, email us right now at firstname.lastname@example.org with your category and a correct email address where we can contact you.
I think this is going to be a great contest-we've got a smashing plot line and theme, and the entries are all so good. I'm really quite excited, and I can hardly wait for the kickoff on October 1st. I hope all of you are just as excited when you read the apps and vote for your favorites. Let the games begin, eh?
