Ladies, gentlemen, assorted ghosts, spirits, demons, abominations before science and nature, monstrosities and librarians, it is that time of year again.

The time... (dramatic pause)

:tv: For the Erfworld Halloween Competition! :tv:


Mwhahahaha!

That's right, now is the time to start preparing your fanfics, fan art, songs, and other miscellaneous oddities for the delight and fright of your fellow Erfworlders.

Categories are:
  • :albert: Art (comics and one-off fan art);
  • :jed: Fan fiction (stand alone and multi-part);
  • :jetstone: Song & poetry (original and redone song lyrics);
  • :parson: Animation, this is an all new category sponsored by Obsidian Lion;
  • :hamstard: "Other" (dolls, handcrafts, cosplay, the kitchen sink; everything else basically)

Now, this is a competition, so the categories will be opened once there are 2 or more entries in a given category. Winners will receive a prize made possible by the frighteningly generous donations of the following Erfworlders: Lipkin, Salvage, kaylasdad99, Cloudbreaker, Gohei, Kyiote, No one in particular, Omnimancer, Gildomar, Brother Mirtillo, t3P, mattlistener, aristotle2600, ObsiianLion, Burley, Cryptomancer, Jaxad0127, Darth Curious, curator, Lonthalus and last but certainly not least, Zebio. The prizes are currently:
  • :wanda: First prize of 2,171 Shmuckers;
  • :charlie: Second prize of 1,086 Shmuckers;
  • :stanley: Third prize of 543 Shmuckers

[UPDATE] Thanks to a ghoulishly generous donation from the Cryptomancer Mining Co, all winners will also receive their very own beautifully glowing Dusky Gem! The glow may or may not be the souls of the Gobwins and Marbits who perished during the volcano uncroaking.

Runners up will may also receive an "Honorable Mention" award of $200 Shmuckers, courtesy of curator!

Do you have some time on your hands? Do you like helping? How about holding the fate of others in your cold iron fist? Shoot me a PM and we'll talk about including you in the judges panel.* Likewise, if you want to sweeten the pot and add Shmuckers to the prize pool send me a PM to coordinate.

And here's the rules, reprinted with minor modifications from last year's contest because they help protect my threadbare sanity (probably?). :charlie:

1. Theme: Just to emphasize, this is a Halloween / Erfworld themed competition. Scary stories, creepy art, spooky Edgar Alan Poe-etry, pictures of your Hamstard porch Pumpkin; all of them can compete in their respective category so long as they have the Erfworld twist.
1.1. Brother Mirtillo Corollary: Non-scary stuff like costume parties, or from other cultures like the Day of the Dead celebration, are also acceptable if it's evocative of the Halloween spirit.
2. Tone: Again, creepy, scary, funny, irreverent, even gross out is okay. Just keep it classy, this isn't about gorn.
3. Finish date: The competition is open until the stroke of midnight for October 30th. Anything posted on 12:01 AM CDT of October 31st will have to wait for 2019.
4. Entries: You can submit multiple times for each category, but only one of them will be considered to win a prize. Similarly, if you feel inspired to make a multi-part story, only the first part will be judged, so make sure it's got a good hook and is self-contained.
4.1 Cloudbreaker Corollary: In the spirit of promoting new content, all entries must be created within the last year;
5. Submitting: Links to the entries (either as forum posts or as independent Submissions in the Submissions stream) must be posted in this thread in order to be considered. I highly encourage you to post your story/art/poetry/80's rock ballad on the Submission stream and/or the Fiction sub-forum so it has more visibility.

Any questions or clarifications can be asked here or sent via PM.

Well, that's all, fright knights and scream queens, we all look forward to your malevolent masterpieces. :twisted: :tv:

* (No being Judge, Jury and Contestant. If you want to participate as a judge you can not have an entry in the given category you agree to help judge.) :charlie:

    I rose up from the dead today,
    My heart is beating faster.
    I find myself devoted to
    A certain badass caster

    I follow every costume change
    I study all her dos;
    Updates about her makeup are
    All I need for news

    I used to think the undead life
    Would be an utter bitch;
    But I've been very happy
    Since I turned into a lich.

    I held on to my levels
    I held on to my might
    I gifted her my Arkentool, well
    She grabbed it in the fight.

    I used to like a girl named Jill,
    She said that I was handsome.
    But now my heart belongs to her
    Because my name is...
    Whatever you want it to be, Mistress Wanda.

    Edit: Minor changes for scansion.

    Wow, that was fast! :D

    Thanks Seanfish, really fun read. I actually forgot to mention above, but if you want to revise/proofread you can. All entries will be (re)read come judging time so it’s the latest version being contemplated.

    Yeah, they are. :)

    I've accumulated a tidy sum of Shmuckers after so much fanfic-ing, and frankly this is one of the funnest ways I know to spend them.

    I probably won't submit anything, and don't know that I have the time or attention span to be a judge, but I too have a tidy sum of shmuckers.

    Double the prizes. I'll match your amount.

    That's some generous Dittomancy you got there! :D

    Sounds good, let me know if you change your mind about writing and/or judging. It's always good to have an extra pair of eyes, but it still takes a fair bit of time to read through everything, judging by the past ones.

    Haha thank you - the funny thing is most of that time was trying to think of a limerick about Wanda and fanservice and couldn't find a decent rhyme for "Wanda" that would thematically and syntatically fit with the metre of the last line. My creative frustration exploded into the little tale of Ansom's experience of undeath.

    Will keep the opportunity for revision in mind although I'm afraid to tinker now...

    By my mathamancy, the initial prize pool was 700 shmuckers?

    I'm super busy with work, so I won't be able to contribute with art, but I can make the prize pool a bit bigger, also judge if you still need someone.

    Thanks kiyote, just wanted to confirm receiving your tip, I've actually had to make a Google Sheet to track donors, donations and judges. :shock: :lol:

    Speaking of which, we have 4 so far counting me. If you want to be a judge you absolutely can, it's not really a question of "need" just yet, though it may get there if there's a lot of submissions and we have to divide categories. If you want to be "on reserve", then I can put you down as a backup judge and PM you if the need arises. Sound good?

    :ugeek: You made me have to make an Excel file just to keep track of things.

    An Excel* file! :evil:

    Anyway, here's your shovel. Now come on, those bodies aren't going to bury themselves.



    It's a team effort in all the best ways, the sheer outpouring of interest and support you kicked off has been pretty breathtaking. Also, you made me laugh last night with the post. ;)

    *Technically a Google Sheet, but whatever.

    As requested, here is the ineligible 2012 artwork I created that I thought fit your theme. It is an image of Ula Gee, queen of the Spidew Den. She is not very nice and is known in many circles as the Tyrant Ula. Oh, and as a side note, the Hat Magic of her crown allows her to see in eight directions at once.

    Here is a DeviantArt link as well in case the attachment doesn't function at some point in the future.

    Thanks cloudbreaker, and wow, she is a terrifying beaut. Reminds me of Queen Arachnia, in a good way. ;)

    Image

    Also, doing a bit of cross posting from the blog post. This is a bit of an executive summary of what's been going on. We now have:
    • Animation, a whole new contest category suggested by Obsidian Lion
    • 9 volunteer judges;
    • 20 donors;
    • $16,754 Shmuckers donated (technically $21,754 with the item below);
    • 15 Dusky Gems (large, medium and small) with a net value of $5,000 Shmuckers, donated by Cryptomancer

    I had no idea there was this much... interest? Restless energy to tap into? Regardless, this year's Halloween competition really did get big. :shock:

    Just to be clear, is it 16,754 shmuckers? Or is it $16,754 worth of shmuckers?

    Because 1 shmucker = 10 American cents (or it did, when the story was still open) The sign for Shmucker is an S with three lines through it.

    Good luck finding the Shmucker sign on your keyboard. I am assuming Spicymancer means 16754 shmuckers. 167540 would be a bit excessive. Though the final donation count will have to be taken at october 31th.

    True, and yeah, it's 16,754 Shmuckers and not the dollar equivalent of that. The rate of donations is tapering off a little now that it's been a few days, though the amount and type of donation is still pretty varied, so I hesitate to guess what it'll eventually be. *shrug*

    After posting yesterday I think I'll just sit back and relax for a while. I got a bit too caught up in the pace of things, probably best to let things mature then the judges can start to coordinate based on submissions.

    Also, I think I'll leave off using regular dollar signs from now on. Maybe switch to the gem icon? <> <> <> ;) :P
