anni7big.pngAs part of our seventh annivesary, the Round Table hosts its traditional literature competition Participants have until the end of the 10th of December 2012 GMT to upload their specific entry for the competition. Upload your submissions to the ‘Literature’ section. Choose ‘Anniversary Literature Competition 2012’ in the category (Entries will be accepted from the 1st of November 2012 on).
(NB: If you haven't submitted a story yet, you should ask Guillaume le Courageux or Uther Di Asturien the clearance to be able to post new articles).

This year will feature a motto for the first time: The Errantry War. You can follow that motto with your submission, but you are not forced to. 

If you want other members to proofread the first draft and listen to their opinions in order to build the strongest story, you are free to create a thread to discuss your story in the subforum ‘The Hall of the Bards’. Keep in mind though that only submissions to the 'Literature’ section count and you cannot change it anymore (at least until after the competition).
Also don’t forget that you can read last year’s entries in the ‘Literature’ section: search in the annual ‘Anniversary Literature Competition’ category.

The Rules

Each member can submit at most one submission


  1. Your submission must be related to Bretonnia and be set entirely in the Warhammer World.
  2. Your submission must be a new one: i.e. you may not have submitted it to the literature section here or on another website in the past. Plagiarism will not be tolerated!
  3.  The story should at least be one page (+/-1000 words) and at the most three pages (+/- 3000 words) long.
  4. Please use a standard font (Times New Roman 12, Calibri 11 or use the default font styles in the Editor when sending in the article), standard interpunction and interlines.
  5. It should be a stand-alone short story with no ties to other stories.


Here are the five criteria the Judges will base themselves on to grade your submission:


  • Creativity (20): How creative and fresh was your story? Did it enthral the reader or was it more like a newspaper article? Another damsel-in-distress story or a true ballad of heroism? Does the story have a certain depth or is it a walk from point A to point B?
  • Theme (10): Did you you follow the theme / topic of the competition in your story?
  •  Readability (10): How well written was your piece in fact? Was it a smooth read or was the reader's experience hampered by too many interpunctions, degradations and so on?
  • Consistency (10): Does the entire story add up or is the reader lost in the many contradictions? No plotholes or does the character's colour of hair change with every page for example?  Is the usage of tenses correct or does the writer change between past and present?
  • Correctness (10): Is the story conform with the rules set out for the competition or did the writer choose his own path at his own risk?  
The Staff of the Round Table wishes the inspiration of the muse to you and good luck.

This thread discusses the Content article: Anniversary Literature Competition 2012

A quick reminder that there are only about 10 days left till the competition deadline.

I'm assuming that stories written for the Sentinels of Shadows campaign are not acceptable? I think there would be more entries if this was the case
Re:Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 Nov 28 2012 04:31
Can anyone direct me as to where to submit my story? The instruction say the Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 folder or some such thing, however, that does not seem to exist. Either that or I've been struck blind. Hope it's not too late to enter, I cooked up a real good story for this one.
Re:Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 Nov 28 2012 05:14
I don't know, honestly, but I can't wait to read this year's entries/winner's...
Re:Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 Nov 28 2012 16:07
Whoops, looks like I accidentally submitted my entry in the various stories category. Now it's on the front page! Yikes! I hope it can still be considered.
Re:Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 Nov 28 2012 16:39
....I've removed your article from the front page and unpublished it.
Next time PM either me or Guillaume about this. Normally we don't allow published articles to be submitted for the competition, but since I'd just approved it I see no reason to good reason to bring it back into the fold.

Thank you very much Uther, that's very kind of you. I am sorry to have caused you such bother! I did in fact PM Guilliame about the competition. I should have PMed you as well. It was more of a mistake on my part that the story was submitted, as I accidentally clicked on submit when I was editing. Should've paid more attention.

Could you enlighten me as to where we are officially supposed to submit stories for the contest?
Re:Anniversary Literature Competition 2012 Nov 29 2012 08:25
There was supposed to be a section for the Anniversary submissions titled "Anniversary Literature Competition 2012". Apparently it hadn't been created yet though, so that wasn't really your fault, I went ahead and created it. I've moved your submission into that category already.
