    i guess it's fair to say that this contest was already given up. there are no more posts by the contestants (or at least the ones who didn't say officially that they are quitting) about what they are up to :O

    I'll probably post the work-so-far before the deadline. It's gonna be just two chapters, but I'm gonna finish the complete campaign in the near future.

    The theme was kind of... weird.

    To prove that you're wrong, Linaze, I am joining this contest. Yes, the deadline is roughly three days - enough for me.
    Good luck to everyone else!

    I think because it's quite common, and you can't take a good payment in creativity and originality in here.

    Anyways, I already finished two heroes and their skills which will be the main characters you will control. They are all custom, and I got some nice custom resources from the Hive.

    My story is simple and mainstream, yet interesting:
    The battle against the Scourge and the Night Elves has nearly came to an end: the undead wretches are winning! You will take place of young ranger, Lady Aphera, on a mission to draw back the assault, while her sisters seek a powerful artifact Aphera will need to defend her lands.

    Sorry, I can't do much because of time limit, but I guess that if I still have some time left after the bases are complete, I might add a map or two more.

    It's hard to make a descent campaign with that theme. The theme is global, and you need to show it somehow, and for that you need a lot of time. If I started in time, maybe I could do it.

    If the theme was something like "A goofy story" or "Once upon a time" you could easily make a short campaign. But with a global war theme, you need more than five chapters to develop your story.

    I'm finishing the first chapter, and I'm not satisfied with the result :(...

    If you mean that you'll start today (or yesterday if that's when your post was made), then you'll not finish a decent campaign by the deadline, it's as simple as that.

    As for the theme, it wasn't weird as much as it was restricting.

    Just one question: are the interludes (Maps which can't be played, but serve for story only) counted in the 3 maps minimum rule?

    Oh, and can someone tell me what's the deadline bounce for this contest? I'm afraid that I will be away from Serbia for a short period, and I am concerned that I can't place my entry exactly at 12:00. If it's 12:00 PM, then it's okay.

    Also, is there any list with entries?

    Here's what I got so far; this is a WIP.

    The campaign is called "Lunar War". You will control Lady Aphera, the Moonchant Ranger.

    I was able to create only first chapter and an interlude, but since I am free from my weekend work and bindings, I will get this finished faster.

    I am aiming for creating a campaign and polishing it, and clearing leaks if I have some time left.

    I need these answers, damn. I asked them twice already.

    1. Interludes are not included in map count, even if there's one after each chapter?
    2. Deadline bounce - how much time after preset deadline to upload?
    3. Contest ends at AM or PM?
    4. Who am I competing against? Any list of entries?
