"Winter" mod contest reminder 2
« on: December 01, 2011, 08:27:40 PM »
Hey, everybody!  There's still one month left in the "Winter" mod contest.  That's still time to do a mini mod!  (Plus, we're anticipating, like, two weeks to a one month grace period for tardy but well-intentioned authors.)  The guidelines, again, are as follows:

Theme: Winter.
Size: Any.
Genre: Any.
Hacks: Any.
Deadline: December 31st, this year (2011).

Any story that feels Wintery, snowy, cold, or otherwise of the Season is fine; so, not excluding but not necessarily Christmas-y. It doesn't even have to be set in Winter as long as it's cold or snowy, and it doesn't even have to be cold or snowy as long as it's set in Winter. The theme is meant to give as much flexibility as possible.

Story may be original, or any type of conversion.

Mods can be for Unlimited Adventures or Dungeon Craft, which may or may not be judged separately.

Mods may be hacked or unhacked (but for the standard UA fantasy genre, the UA1.3 patch is recommended).

Open to all genres: Forgotten Realms, Super-Hero, Oriental Adventures, Ravenloft, one of your own, etc., etc., ad infinitum.

Tentative plans are for the contest's winner(s) to be decided by a Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures Forum open Poll vote -- but, really, everybody wins -- both authors & players!   ;D  (The origin of this contest has been strictly grassroots, rather than through sponsorship of the UA Newsletter.)   ;)

I hope I can finish mine, too!  It seems like I've done a ton of art, now, but maybe not half as many pics as the mod will need.  Oofdah!

I'm trying to finish up Operation: Executive One (autumn) and Blight on the Barrow (blighted) today, so I can begin/get back to playtesting. Then I may try to finish up Stolen in Spiderhaunt which could be winter, except that would leave tracks. Then I can get back to Wu Jen (formerly Yuki-On-Na) and Snow Drive (a western). I'm farther behind than anyone else, despite starting first.  :o

Hopefully I'll have something done by saturday. Poor Mad Mesa is taking forever to playtest. Its been in playtesting for 8 months now.  :'(

Having been reading about lots of contest winners from UANL (I'm up to 22), it occurs to me that the prize could be being put on a sticky of Contest Winners.  Olivier has an unofficial Hall of Fame. So why not an official Wall of Winners? This gives you a semi-permanent plaque naming you a winner!  ;D

I just plotted out Yuki-On-Na/Wu Jen and think I will have it done in time.

That's a  good idea. Did you make a list of the winners while reading through the UANLs?
