That's fine. You can do one on the next challenge, or whenever it is best for you.

It's ok. I think it's great that there's going to be lots of short challenges, so that you can miss one and still make the next. In the meantime, less competition...

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

So I was looking at the rules, and I didn't notice anything about when the winner should be decided (which I asked about earlier, to no avail )...

I think that we should have a deadline that they have to be in by and a deadline by which the winner should be chosen.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Here we go, let's see how this works out.

Vydar's Desert Campaign

Sweat poured down Jason's face as he looked through his sunglasses across the empty lands of the Volcarren Wastelands. Volcanoes broke the flat line of the horizon at times and nothing could be seen except for a wide, flat expanse of dry land, piles of boulders seemingly thrown to random places and rivers of lava flowing through.
Jason Carr turned back to look at the others accompanying him. Major Q10 returned his glance and quickly looked away, scanning the surrounding area constantly for what they were looking for, a talisman that could give whoever wore it complete control over the element of fire. Heirloom walked to Q10's left, he was new to Vydar's army and Carr didn't yet know what to think of him. Behind them was Major X17, his claw opened and closed periodically as if itching for a chance to be used. The final member of the party was Danus. Danus was Vydar's second in command and leader of their patrol. He was an introspective person that never talked much. This didn't bother Carr, Carr never talked much either. Danus lifted his arm to wipe the sweat from his brow, the clicks and whirrs caught Carr's attention. Danus had lost his left arm fighting against the fell dragon Mimring early in the war, and Vydar had replaced it with a mechanical one.
A sound impeded the silence, "My sensors indicate that what we seek is hidden in that volcano," Major Q10 stated pointing ahead. Carr nodded his understanding. "They also are picking up life forms all around us."
As that last part registered in Carr's mind, a massive boulder flew towards the group. In the next instant a blast of light hit the boulder and blew it to pieces. Carr turned around and saw Heirloom, arm outstretched, panting with the effort of the strong magic.
Suddenly dozens of Obsidian Guards arose from the piles of boulders and approached the group. Everyone in the group drew their weapons and waited for the approaching enemy. This was a mistake as suddenly a ring of fire emerged around them and boxed them in. A roar in the distance caught their attention and Danus, who had looked up at the sound said to the others, "Brunak."
The Obsidian Guards approached closer as the fire began to singe the party. Carr began firing at the Guards, ignoring the ring of fire closing around them. The others followed suit. Two rockets fired from Q10's wrist reduced two of the Obsidian Guards to rubble. Danus drew a rod from his belt and it extended into a spear. Energy crackled from the tip of the spear and a bolt of electricity struck another guard. Magic bolts from Heirloom cut through others. Still the ring of fire moved steadily closer.
Suddenly, the oddest thing caught Carr's attention, the fire seemed to have faces. They grinned evilly at him from the tongues of flame. Carr remembered a campaign he led with Einar's forces where their were creatures made entirely of rock, earth elementals. If there could be one made of earth, why not fire?
Carr decided to test his theory. He swung his sword at the ring, and abruptly a hole appeared where one of the faces had been. "The fire can die," Carr said calmly. With the thought of freedom so close, the party pushed harder against the mass of enemies.
Carr turned and saw that Major X17 had fallen trying to seize one of the elementals with his claw. His entire claw had melted and the circuits hung out, sparking sporadically. Carr turned back towards the tattered shell that had been the ring of fire, however the ring had somehow replenished itself and continued to close in.
Another roar, closer this time, told the party that Brunak had decided to join the battle. Carr risked a glance upward and saw not only Brunak, but a figure being carried on his back. Heirloom had struck at another tongue of flame, but the creature on Brunak's back held up a staff and the tongue returned.
Realizing what was going on, Carr raised his pistol and fired at the creature. His shot missed and instead deflected off of Brunak's tough hide. The shot wasn't a complete waste however, after it hit Brunak, it struck one of the Obsidian Guards in the eye.
Abruptly Brunak was upon them. Blasts from Major Q10's weapons slowed it however. Brunak stumbled and tripped over the limp husk of X17. Danus finished him off with his spear while Carr fired two shots into the other creature's head, silencing it.
The fire, which had scattered at the approach of Brunak and his rider, returned. This time however, when they died, they died permanently. In a few more minutes, the now party of four were all that still lived in the vicinity.
Carr looked down at Major X17. Even in death, he had helped their party. There would be no time to bury him however, they had a mission to complete. The party stowed their weapons and continued toward the mountain that Q10 had pointed out.

Now I'm done.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Deep within the Volcarren wastes there appears to be nothing but stone, rock, heat and the occasional steaming lava vent. Nothing grows, no bird flies, there are no signs of any kind of life. It is a place where you can lose your mind.

“Would you stop fighting?” Agent Carr huffed. “Would you just stop fighting!” Sweat had begun to bead on the agent’s brow. He didn’t know how much more of this he could take.

The gorillinators paused- they had been slapping each other and pulling each other’s body hair for some reason. Beside them, Major X17 stood steely silent.

“I don’t care what so-and-so did- we’re supposed to be on the lookout for that stupid medallion.” Carr continued, but he was raising his voice as his frustration began to vent. “Can we just do it and go home?”

X17 turned its head to Carr. “The medallion is not within range.”

Carr considered drawing his sword of reckoning and putting a few dents in that metal head. “And you’re sure you can sense the medallion?”

“Affirmative. Negative. I can sense it, but it is not within range.” X17 answered.

Meanwhile one of the gorillinators had pulled a tuft of leg hair on the gorillantor beside him, and that gorillantor had responded by hitting the wrong gorillantor, who retaliated with a head butt to the forehead of the other gorillinator...

Suddenly X17’s cyberclaw came to life- opening and closing with a dull metallic thud. X17 turned and began to walk towards some nearby rocks. In the middle of the soulberg’s back was a steaming hole where the metal had been burned.

Carr sounded the attack and drew his sword in the same instant. The gorillinators were still arguing but he moved through their hulking, bickering forms quickly and efficiently and caught up with X17. The soulberg had taken another smoking wound in his chest but Carr still could not see their attackers.

X17’s cyberclaw reached down and grabbed a large hunk of black rock- which began to move and squirm. With a quick flick of its bronze mace X17 smashed the obsidian guard to bits. But more rocks were moving, all around them.
Carr leapt at the nearest moving rock and slashed with his sword. The rock exploded in a shower of black shards. Another living rock grabbed at the sword but Carr brought his machine pistol up and blew its head off- did they even have heads? The agent glanced back at the gorillinators. They were still hitting each other.

“Help us!” He roared, but the modified apes didn’t seem to notice. He made a mental note to punch Skahen when he returned to Vydar’s hold for suggesting the primadons for this mission. She was probably having a good laugh about it right now. Would she ever forgive him? A sudden searing, burning pain in his sword arm wrenched his attention back to the fight. There was a hole in his leather jacket and he could see his own burnt flesh. They were throwing handfuls of lava at him! He tried to control his fury- his arm would heal, but his coat would never be the same.

One of the gorillinators cried out in pain as a searing chunk of lave burned into its flesh. The ape thrashed, and then fell, dead, it’s eyes rolling back into its head. The other two gorillinators roared with rage! How dare someone hurt one of them! They readied their weapons and prepared to fire but all they could see was rock and more rock.

X17 was smashing and crunching his way through scores of obsidian monsters. As long as he was close to them, he was okay. Carr’s burned arm had numbed. It’s burned through to the nerves, he thought. He used the machine pistol mercilessly, blasting every large rock within range whether in moved or not. Was it just the heat from the lava, or was the whole area alive with rock monsters?

“Pull back!” Carr shouted. “We can’t win this fight- there’s too many of them.” He quickly moved away from the monsters beside him and returned to the gorillinators.

X17 had heard but when he turned and moved away he took another wound in the back. The two remaining gorillinators were arguing with each other, and motioning wildly to Carr. It seemed as if.... they wanted him to cut their fallen comrade in half? Carr blinked in disbelief. They wanted to carry the dead ape’s body away with them, but wanted to do it equally. Carr ignored them and took to his heels, and the rest followed, leaving the fallen gorillinator in the stones where it had fallen.

Back at Vydar’s hold Carr wasted no time in seeking out Agent Skahen. He found her in the command hall, going over some maps.

“What the hell was that about?!” He thundered.
She looked at him calmly, tilting her head. “You’re injured.”
“There was no stupid artifact there. You sent me out to punish me!”
She looked suitably insulted. “Agent Carr, we have many areas to search for the medallion. It was a routine mission, ordered by Vydar himself.”
Carr regarded her angrily. “Gorillinators?”
“They are a valued part of our force.” She stated. “Perhaps you need to pay more attention to working professionally with others, instead of emotionally.”
It always came back to that, Carr thought. She would never forgive him. It had only been once, and the Nakita had looked so much like her, but she would never forgive him. Never.
“Skahen, I-“
She held up her hand to silence him. “If the medallion was not there, we must keep looking. This is your next mission.” She pointed at another map, covered with ice and snow....



i'll be offline until tuesday...

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Sorry for the wait, everyone. That would be 4:00 Pacific Time, although it is now 4:39. And the winner is...

CheddarLimbo!

Second place goes to BassitofDoom, and third place goes to Elven Lord (I love your idea of morphing soulborgs.) Thank you all for your entries, and better luck next time!

If CheddarLimbo does not not give out the next challenge by Tuesday, On Wednesday, the challenge may be given by anyone. Goodluck!
