Chaos Dwarfs Online presents: Scribe's Contest I

Welcome to the first of many fluff writing competitions to be hosted by Chaos Dwarfs Online! They are sponsored primarily by Titan Wargames and are always themed around Chaos Dwarfs.

This round's theme is Chaos Dwarf Infamous Quotes. These don't have to be Dawi Zharr or Hobgoblin words, but could also be quotes about Chaos Dwarfs as expressed by other races of the Warhammer world.

Do you like fluff, minis and medals? Perhaps you even like Sneaky Gitz, big hats, masks, flying bulls and curly beards? Then don't miss the chance to participate in this new fluff contest marathon!

Please read the general rules and guidelines before diving in, though. The guidelines contain a bunch of inspirational material to aid any participants. :)

Deadline: 11:59 PM Nov 9th 2014 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)

Cheers! :)

Looks a very nice turnout and some really great pieces. I'm refraining from commenting on the forums yet, just in case it removes some of the anonymity. Will do so after the voting t'is over. :)

Good! A silver medal has been stolen and carried off to Skavenblight! This is a travesty! ;)

I'll keep you all informed about future launches of Scribe's Contest. There are medals and prizes to be snitched-snitched.

*A selection of Eshin's best cart back the medal whilst a team of Skryre engineers try and figure out how to turn it into a weapon of thrice doomed doomy doom* :P

Thanks again for a great competition! *bsb*

A Verminlord has abducted the gold prize! Horror! Scandal! Utter heresy! :wacko:

Well done Ratty, well deserved! #gs#

:blink:

I really wasn't expecting such a result, especially given how amazing all the other entries were!

That Scribe's Contest had one of my favourite themes of any contest and probably the hardest choices for my votes that i've ever had to make.

Utterly stellar work from you Dawi Zharr!

I (as before) strongly recommend any lore-rats around here (who haven't already) to check out the CDO forums, if only to read what those fiendish minds come up with!

Edit: And this post marks my passing from the holy 1,300 post mark! :lol:

Scribe's Contest VII * Sports Edition *: Foul and Fumbles - Blood Bowl Chaos Dwarfs is up now! Deadline 24th of April, so move, move move!

"Goooaaal! It's a GOAL! A bloody, magnificient unparallelled goal! G-o-a-l-err-h! Did you see that, Ham?"
"Sure did, Krogg. Straight out of textbook."
"Cheatnote, rather, by the look of those fans. They're all jumping onto the pitch!"
"Hahaha, now look at that Hobgoblin run! Silly stuff. Ouch! One moment scoring, the next dead."
"Well, so is Blood Bowl, Ham."
"Indeed, Krogg! The fans have both teams surrounded, but why are the mobs attacking their own teams...?"
"Duck! Now they're throwing Gnoblars!"
"Watchout!"
"There went the cheerleaders! Yuck!"
"It's doom on the pitch today. Havoc! Bloody mayhem!"
"Sure is, Krogg."
"Now the referee's gone. In four different directions at once. Oooh, pretty nice quartering there by those Amazon fans!"
"For sure! An' do you know what those curses and obscenities are? Those vomited from tusked mouths, like that sod's blood 'n' guts spewed all over his curlybeard? D'you know what them acid words are, Krogg?"
"No, tell me, Ham!"
"Those are the last words of the players..."
