“The Pen is Mightier than the Sword!”

Until now you have been able to prove yourself in Holy War with passion and the skill in wielding the sword. Over the next four weeks, however, you will have a new opportunity to let your literary talents usher you to glory and respect. Starting August 2nd, the plunder-line contest will begin. You provide new texts for the plunders, and we will select the best to be introduced into the game itself. You the have the once in a lifetime chance to be immortalised in Holy War, and see your own words while plundering in-game!
For the mercenary souls out there, for whom cold hard cash is more important than glory and recognition, we have also got a tangible reward, of course. The three best texts will earn the following prizes:

1st Place: 30 days premium, 300 x lvl in gold
2nd Place: 20 days premium, 200 x lvl in gold
3rd Place: 10 days premium, 100 x lvl in gold


Everyone is encouraged to participate. At the start of each contest week we will open a thread in the forum for you to publish your texts. On the following Sunday the thread will be closed and the submissions evaluated. Only those posts made before the deadline of the thread's being closed will be considered.

You are free to make as many submissions as you like, and there are no bounds to limit your creativity: tragic texts, comical texts, historically accurate texts, or those which sacrifice logic at the altar of epic adventure are all equally welcome. It is all up to you.

The only restriction is that each plunder text may be a maximum of 250 characters in length.

The contest begins on 02.08.2010 with the texts for small plunders. For those of you who want to prepare yourselves early for the weeks after that, we will be looking for texts in the following categories over the course of the competition:

Large plunders
No plunder booty
Maximum plunder booty


We wish you good luck and look forward to reading your submissions,


Your Holy War Team

Haha, it looks like my call for more in-depth in-game messages in the Suggestions board was heeded! :3

I'm guessing the contest will begin this sunday then, right?

A wishful thinking one...


You help a frail elderly woman across a busy road. In gratitude, she grants you 24 hours free premium.



or, more likely....


You help a frail elderly woman across a busy road. Unfortunately, she turns out to be a not-so-elderly man in disguise and smacks you upside the head with the Golden Brick and runs off with some of your gold. -20 gold and 10 xp.

On your way to a raid, you spot a person has named themselves after a story you
once wrote. Considering this copyright infringement, you grab the person’s underwear
and stretch it over their head. Witnesses pay you for the entertainment.

You sneak into the farmer's house and try to steal his golden brick, but you step onto the creaky floorboard and wake up his wife. She bashes you on the head repeatedly with her broomstick and you run away, forgetting your bag of stolen goodies by the window.0XP and 0g:P

As you head out to plunder, you stop by a tavern along the way. One drink leads to another, and after you pass out, strangers do unmentionable things to you. 0 gold, 8XP
