Welcome to the First Annual DART Fan Fiction Tournament, run by SupaDudz.

I always wanted to run a Fan Fiction tournament on DDO, but since it died, I thought it was a good idea to bring it to DART.

Here are some of the guidelines...

General Rules
1. Each person will be given 48hrs to come up with a story and write about a certain theme or topic of the judges choice(varies every round)
2. A forfeit will result in an automatic win for the opponent
3. I would prefer stories to be written in Google Docs, that way judges can leave comments and share things
to
you on Google. If you don't own Google, just send me a script of the email I will provide. PLEASE DO NOT EXPOSE THIS EMAIL TO OTHER DARTers
4. Cheating or plagiarism is not allowed. If caught, you will be disqualified and banned from the tournament forever
5. The grading system is the only way something should be graded on and determined
6. In Round 1, there will 1 judge(me) deciding on whose story was better. The Semi-Finals will have two judges, and The Final Round will have 3 judges. Judges are on the code of honour stated below

The Judge Code of Honor
As a judge, I am honoured to be serving the tournament and therefore, I will not let bias or grudge determine who will win
a round
and who will get a higher
score.
I will follow the grading scale and read diligently to make an accurate response. I will not communicate with a participant about their story. Failure to follow this procedure will count as the vote-getting scrapped and disqualification from the tournament 


The Grading Scale

Characters 1-10
Were the characters develop well enough so the reader isn't confused? Do the characters have an interesting backstory? Are the characters unique?
Conflict 1-10
Does the conflict make sense? Does the conflict develop into the plot? Does it flow well with the story? Is the conflict
stated
? Is the reader confused what the conflict is?
Plot 1-10
Does the plot engage the reader? Do you want to keep reading the story? Is it too long? Too short? Is it too generic? Does the plot follow a certain timeline, or is it all over the place?
THAT MOMENT!! 1-10
Does the book have "that moment" that surprises the reader? Is "that moment" expected? Does it affect the conflict or plot of the story? Do you feel any emotions after hearing this
Ending 1-10
How does the
fan fic
end? Does it end happy or sad? Does it have a defined ending? Does it transition well? Is there a cliffhanger, and if so does it makes you want to read to see what happens? Does the ending make sense? Too cringy?
Tone and Mood 1-10
Does it look like the author was trying to set a tone? Was this tone helping or hurting the story? Did the tone affect the reader's mood? Was there any mood to the story? Is the reader confused what their mood should be?
Dialogue 1-10
Does the author use dialogue? If they don't use dialogue, do they communicate the characters feeling well? Is there dialogue? Is it first person? Does the dialogue help the story? Is it used properly?
Grammar Mistakes 1-5
Are there grammar mistakes? Do they affect the reader and if they are able to understand the book? Are words
mispelled
? Are there any paragraphs? CAN I READ THIS
FAN FIC
WITHOUT SAYING, WHAT THE ACTUAL SH*T DO YOU MEAN BRUH?

Total=Final Score

The person who has the higher score wins the round plain and simple

I only need two judges, three for final round. I would prefer a participant in the tourney to judge than a random

I might be interested, but a few questions:

1. When does it start? I already got one idea for a short story but it'll definitely take me longer than 48 hours to write, so I'd have to begin early.
2. Can it just be about whatever I want? Or are we gonna be restricted to a particular topic or theme?
3. How many stories are we gonna have to write?
4. Would we be required to include users of this site as characters in the fics?

Alright, since "SupaDudz" is kind of a lame name for a character, and especially for a serious work, would you mind disclosing your real first name, or is that something you're not comfortable with?

but the strange names add character and a touch of light-hearted comedy to an otherwise serious piece of writing ;3
