ALL ABOARD THE SLEUTHETANIA!!!
We’re all excited about the newest addition to Sleuth! In anticipation of the upcoming launch of the USS Sleuthetania, we hereby challenge all sleuths to a launch party contest to celebrate her inauguration.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to finish the story of launch night. We’re giving you a scenario below, and we’d like you to respond in character. Tell us what you see, hear, do, and experience, from the time you arrive at the dock, view the Sleuthetania christening ceremony, through walking down the gangplank, up until the ship sails out to sea. The more imaginative and creative, the better!
*One entry per person, please.
*Spelling and grammar DO count, so please use the appropriate tools, and edit, edit, edit.
*For those who think this is a ‘role-playing’ contest, we’re looking for what your character specifically does. Whether you choose to interact with other players is completely up to you. You MAY choose to keep your entry entirely to yourself (ie-without contact with others), and still have a very interesting story to read. Get innovative! You CAN do this!!
*There’s a 6000 character maximum limit. That means 3 boxes. We recommend you use a word editing program and copy-and-paste your final entry into sleuth. This avoids problems such as others posting in between your boxes, timing-out, etc.
*ALL entries are due NO LATER than turnover, Monday, June 2 (11:59:59pm). No exceptions.
*NOTE: Because we have no way of knowing exactly when Admin’s launch will happen, we’ve used some creative libel here. Whatever Ben’s come up with will be wonderful, of course. But we’d like you to stick with our version for this contest, please.
*I'm not the only judge, but my decision is final. In case of disputes, talk to the hand. ;)
1st prize Sleuth $150,000
2nd prize Sleuth $75,000
3rd prize Sleuth $40,000.
Ok, here we go! The scene is set...
