If you’re reading this you probably enjoy writing Star Trek stories. Did you know that it was a Star Trek story that won the Flashback Week competition back on August? It was a fantastic story where a team who had crashed on a hostile Cardassian planet had to fight to survive, you can read the story here.
It’s October and Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s time for another story competition! OngoingWorlds is running a Halloween story competition for all roleplayers. As we all write stories anyway, why not combine the two? Create a spooky Halloween story for your roleplaying game and just submit it to the competition.
The kind of story we’re looking for will be heart-thumpingly thrilling, spine-tinglingly scary, and maybe just a bit stomach-churningly gory. Star Trek isn’t usually known for being scary, but I can remember certain episodes that have been really spooky, Neelix telling the ghost story in the Voyager episode ‘The Haunting of Deck Twelve‘ about creatures in the dark is perfect for a Halloween story!
If you think you can step up to the challenge and write something really scary, get typing and send us your story!
To enter the competition all you have to do is write a story about the characters in your roleplaying game (we don’t mind if it doesn’t fit into the current storyline of your game) and submit it to us using the form below before the 31st of October. The top 10 stories will be published online and credit will be given to the author and also to the game you’re in – which should hopefully help advertise your game to get new members.
