The Warlock’s Journal jumps from site to site, roughly every other month. March brought a fresh host for the contest.
March was the latest active month in the Warlock’s Journal bimonthly schedule, with the contest rolling over into April. The new host was Clark Timmins at the mighty RPG Geek. The topic for this round of the contest is elementals, something close to my heart. This concept is described by Clark as follows:
The theme for this issue is the elements. You can use four, five, six, or whatever. Your entry can be fantasy, sci-fi, modern, zombie, or whatever. Your entry can be anything you can imagine, either obvious or conceptual. But it does have to be based on or around the elemental theme. Elementals, elemental magic, elemental planes, elemental alchemy, elemental whatever.
In most Western philosophy (and certainly in most games), there are four known classical elements. But there are many different philosophies and ways of thinking about the world, reality, and existence.
Entries can be for any genre, system neutral, and must revolve around the elements in some way. Submissions can be up to 600 words. First and second prizes are Geek Gold, the currency used on the RPG Geek Forums.
As I noted above, Clark is making full use of the two month window for the contest. The deadline for entries is April 15th. Yes, the contest closes at the end of this week. Thus, now is your last time to participate in this round of the Warlock’s Journal.
