This is basically the same concept as the character creation contests but instead of one character you get to create your own world.

If this goes well hopefully there will be more. For the first contest the rules are simple, it must be sci-fi or fantasy and you write a story that establishes the basic premise of your world.

The sign in dead line is this coming Tuesday, the dead line for submissions will be decided on by how many people sign up.

@joshmightbe: Do we have to write a zero issue or is it just a pitch?

@dngn4774: I'd prefer a story but a pitch is fine.

@joshmightbe: Don't want to commit to anything if I don't know the rules or the subject. Since this is your idea why don't you just set up an OP for the official contest, then those who are interested will be given a deadline, just like CCC.

@dngn4774: Its not a big commitment, you can just make a one off story if you like. The only rules are that it has to be sci-fi or fantasy and it has to be original. I'll post the official contest op tomorrow.

I'd do it, though I have no idea what it is exactly.

@joshmightbe: I think I get what you want here, but this is a little vague.

I have a suggestion. @joshmightbe should establish the basic premise of the world, and we the contributors will build on top of what he writes. This could be a character, an environment (like a city or terrain), until we've all helped design a really nice world with unique and interesting characters.

@omniscience: The whole point is to make your own world. I don't really see what's vague about it.

@joshmightbe I didn't say it was vague? Just suggested that if we all contributed to one world it could be a really interesting idea.

@joshmightbe: What's vague is how is this different from the CCC? Every time we create a character, we have to create a world around it, to make the story make sense. I'm not downing your contest, I just don't see the difference. Was hoping you could elaborate on that.

@cbishop: This would focus more on world building as opposed to focusing in an individual character

It's already difficult enough to zone in on a single story on the CCC with the small word count allowance, how you propose to build a fleshed out world without having a contest full of epics?

Sorry to be dense, man, but I still don't get it. I'm going to sit this one out. I'm going to have to see how this works.

That sounds awesome, we all just make our contribution to something that in the end will one, branching and a large story. I'm all for this.
