The Official Monthly Short Story Contest of the CSFS and the LoHF
We are grateful to Hammerhelm for the beautiful ribbon that now graces our contest!



Thanks CeruleanSon for the great banner!



Enter The Dragon's Keep-if you dare. Do you think you have what it takes to work alongside such creatures of awesome power? Do you have the stamina to be a Dragon Keeper? These are strong willed dragons able to spot but an inkling of weakness in any who would dare. Some of them are dastardly villainous dragons. Only worthy the strongest will last. Those who are strong of both mind and body, whose stories ring true will survive. Aye, mate ye can read along, but watch out! You could get burned to ashes.

*Noteb* *Noter* *Noteb*

This iteration of the World Famous! Dragon's Keep fantasy contest will run from July 1, 2014 to midnight August 15, 2014. Judging begins on August 16, 2014. Entries posted after this deadline will die a horrible anonymous, and meaningless death. Victors will be decreed on or before August 25, 2014.

AYE, HERE BE THE RULES:

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND ALL RULES BEFORE SUBMISSION:


*Star* This will be a short-story fantasy contest of no more than 5000 words.
*Star* Your story must contain a dragon.
*Star* A quest, during the quest your hero must overcome at least three trials.

*Star* All entries must be new static items written specifically for this contest. No submissions of a story submitted to this contest will be allowed to be submitted to other contests during the time of submission, until judging is completed, and prizes have been awarded.
*Star* In any given month, if there are LESS than FOUR entries then only a 1st place award will be made. If there is a single entry, award will be made at the discretion of the judges.
*Star* Once posted entries may be edited up until judging begins. After the announcement that judging begins all entries are final and may NOT be edited. Please proofread your entries in advance, ask an editor, get reviews, or whatever you need to do before the announcement.
*Star* As a courtesy at the end of the month when judging begins each author is asked to read and review the other participating authors' works. Reviews may be submitted in the Dragon's Keep forum below. This may be done prior to the the judging announcement if stories are done earlier. Judging staff may or may not reward/credit this reviewing. Reviews are posted in the forum in a manner similar to the BITEM format as follows-- {review:######} replacing the # with the review number from the upper right hand corner of your review. These reviews will be of tremendous assistance to the judging staff and may or may not be rewarded/credited depending upon contest funding available and the quality of said reviews.
*Star* The content rating of entries can only be 18+ or lower.
*Star* Please post your entry using {bitem:}/{b-item:} links in the body of the post.
*Star* Your word count must be posted at the top or the bottom of your story/entry.


If ye can, throw us some coin of the realm. Donations of 30,000 GPs will be awarded a merit badge! Donations may be attached to a forum message below and/or to Group ID# 1769154
