Hive, Queen and Country Contest
On my yahoo group I occasionally run disastrously boring contests that generate some moderate amount of disinterest and usually have a single entry when all is said and done. One was for a VSF invention, which Don won (garnering an excellent set of steampunk goggles my wife made), the next for a scenario for a miniatures battle which Alan won and which will be part off The Sword and The Hive rule book as the free scenario, since he was kind enough to allow publication (and since it was more than good enough to see publications!)
OK, here is my new contest:
Go to your bookshelves, a library, a book shop or other place with lots of books. RANDOMLY select three books from three widely separated areas (both physically separated and in terms of subject matter). Take core ideas events or characters from those three books and develop something related to VSF, Steampunk or Hive, Queen and Country in Particular. This can be a character concept, a piece of artwork, a costume, and invention, a scenario or a fictional story.
Say what three books they were and where you found them-All on this list are considered gentlemen and ladies so there is a certainty that books will not be “cherry picked” to lead to a pre identified idea.
Say what three ideas you are using and which books they came from
Entries must be in to me by October 15th. The winner will announced no later than December 1st.
No other rules.
We will post the entries on the yahoo group and on the web page and will have a voter poll to determine the winner
