Oh god Esteltree, have some patience! xD

At the bottom of this post lies your first assignment! You other moderators are welcome to do your own as well...after all you ARE part of the tournament...

But shhhh...it's story time.

Part 1: The Invitation

From the skies, the leaflets rained. Posters were stuck on the wall for all and sundry to see. Crowds flocked and chattered amongst themselves, all those users with those secret desires finding a new glimmer of hope, speculating and perhaps fantasising. There was a buzz of excitement in the air.

"Che-" Nemo spat as he plastered up another poster in the recesses of a dark alleyway (of all places), "There they all go, getting worked up because they think they'd make a good mod."

Ubertuna flopped next to him, leaving a trail of water that must have been dripping from some indeterminate location beneath his robes. "This mightn't seem like the best idea," he grated, "But I'm sure we could have some real fun with it."

Nemo tugged on the ear of his wolfskin cape nonchalantly. "Do I smell rotting fish?"

Ubertuna cringed and seemingly shrivelled up inside his cape: "That hurt my feelings..."

Nemo turned and flung a wad of posters in Ubertuna's face: "Then quit moping around and get back to work, otherwise go back to your moat!"

Ubertuna completely shrivelled up, then suddenly turned and flopped as fast as his fin-feet could take him, bawling.

"And say hello to your shark buddies for me too!" Muttering, Nemo turned back to the poster he was plastering. The top corner had somehow peeled off again, stubbornly refusing to stick to the wall. "Zophia drew out the posters. Dank's in charge of the ampitheater. And Strop and Carlie are both planning out the tournament as we speak. And here I am... poster duty. Why? Because it suits my way of life...tssk."

Just then, a giant tail swung around and dislodged the corner of the poster again. Nemo looked up, ready to spray the culprit with vitriol, to find a dragon head hovering so close to him the red goatee hairs were scratching his nose.

"Why so serious?" Devoidless quipped, engulfing Nemo with puffs of smoke. "Like the scaly manfish said, we could be having fun with this..."

Without another word, they disappeared down the alleyway, the poster stuck to the wall the only evidence of their presence.

DISCLAIMERS:

* This is STILL a work of fiction. Nothing to do with being made mod or not!

* All characters used with permission.

* That is not an accurate portrait of Carlie, but I'm in a hurry.

* Zophia didn't design that poster, I did. If Zophia had done it I suspect it would look better.

Okay, and now...HERE IS YOUR ASSIGNMENT!!!!!

Task: A Day In the Life Of-

Portray your character's preparation and journey from wherever they might be to the Ampitheatre.

This is your opportunity to introduce your character. You can write as much or as little as you like, though more is better as I need to have some idea as to how to treat your character in as satisfactory a manner as possible. However there is a limit- the earliest point you can write from is from when your character hears of this WoM tourney.

Deadline: 30th July, 2009. The next round will begin on 6th August, 2009 as shown on the poster.

But that's not all! I have a few perks and features for you guys:

1) First In Best Dressed: the first person to submit their story (to a quality within reason) will be the first character introduced in the next part.

2) Moderator's Pet: the best entry (as decided by me) will get the most detail in the next part.

3) Last One There Is A Rotten Egg: the character of last draft to be submitted will suffer some form of in-game humiliation >:D

And that's that. HAVE AT IT!

...but remember. Drafts to be submitted to [email protected]. Not here.

It's about 40% right, has only a little mistake here:

However there is a limit- the earliest point you can write from is from when your character hears of this WoM tourney.

I started a bit earlier, sorry,  so don't consider that part, it does not exist, though it does.

lol the resemblance is creepy. I hope for your sake that Goumas the Alchemist doesn't make corny one-liners about dead people.

Just make sure it starts around the point where he finds out about the WoM (or at least includes it) and it'll be cool.

Huzzah! It's finally arrived!

Right, so we send our first submission to the WaoMod address before putting it here, no?

You're free to include this if it doesn't take up, like, the whole submission!
