I'm interested.

But "6 paragraph intro"??? What about people who want to do a scenario based on part of one of the Star Wars movie scenes, or a book scene? I really don't think there's a need to have an introduction for something that already has an established story behind it. If it's a wholly new idea, then sure, I can see why that would be nice.

Count me in.

I just have a few questions, though: If I were to do a Star Wars scenario, does it have to be based on a canon event? Or can it be fanon/fan fiction?

Can fan-made maps (like JediCartographer's) be used?

How long is the contest going for?

Well the sign-up goes till the 10th, and Judges should take more then a day or 2.
It doesn't have to be canon, but if your character walks up to Darth Vader and punches him in the face and Vader cries and runs away, don't count on anything good...
Basically, keep is some-what logical (From the universe's perspective.)
As I said before, any map that is current available (In circulation) you can use for your scenario.

Still haven't answered my question regarding the 6 paragraph intro thing. I have a scenario based on part of one of the Star Wars films which I would like to submit, but I really don't think it's necessary to write out several paragraphs to tell what is going on. Waste of my time, since all I'd be doing is re-telling exactly what is going on in the movie.

Sorry, I missed your question. Yes, it is necessary. The intro is to describe your world, what is going on, anything and everything that is relevant to make it all the more real.

I'm not sure you're understanding my question.

Say I want to submit a scenario for the Battle of Hoth, or the Battle of Endor. Why is a 6 paragraph (which seems a bit much to me anyways) intro necessary? Anyone who plays SWMs is already going to know the story behind that. Like I said, just seems like waste of time to write it, and a waste for the judges to read through it if it's something everybody knows well already.

I understand you're trying to encourage people to come up with things like how you did your Zombie Infection scenario, and that's great, because it is helpful for people to understand what's going on if the scenario is based on a world or story that everyone may not be familiar with. I just don't see why it's needed if the scenario is based on a well-known event.

EDIT: Heck, now that I think about it, the official WOTC Scenarios we've got the last few months don't even have 2 paragraphs of intro to them, let alone 6. And those are not based on any actual storylines.

A paragraph can be as low as 3 sentences. A sentence can be as low as 3 words, (If those words meat a certain criteria).
Your example, your intro could be elaborating on what people are doing, like an actual story. Star Wars opening scroll is a broad overview and you could elaborate on it further.

Post subject:  Re: SWMGamers Exclusive Scenario Contest!

Ok, well, I will TRY to get one in by the 10th but don't count to heavily on it. I tend to make mine overly long anyway. (err...my last one was 20 senarios long :P and I never posted it because I didn't feel like it was finished)
