  1. Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well! So, it's with a heavy heart, that I have to announce that I'll be stepping down from running the Iron Quill. Life circumstances have conspired to make this a harder and harder thing to do, much as I'm sad to say. The Quill started a few years ago and it's been an awesome thing to watch so many people try their hands at writing, some for the first time and others just using this as a chance to sharpen up skills. I've been quite proud of it, and of everyone who's taken the time to participate. But sadly, as the above song says, it's time for me to find my separate way. So this will be the last month that I'm involved in running the Quill. So, what's going to happen to the future of the Iron Quill? Well, Quill veteran admiralvorkraft has very graciously agreed to take over the contest as I leave. So he'll be in charge of it from this month on, and I wish him the best of luck with it all! I hope everyone continues to participate in this awesome event. I'm going to miss all of you, thanks for so many years of great stories and an awesome community. Wish you all the best, and I hope to come back and visit and see how you're all doing. So long everyone, maybe I'll meet you at a convention someday. And now, here's the competition itself! The Iron Quill is a writing contest that takes place every month. It’s an exciting competition and a great place to hone your skills and get some constructive feedback. The Rules You must post your story in The Writing Room by the submission date with the following posting format: Iron Quill – Name of the round – Name of your story. Nothing else is needed to sign up, but please post in this thread with a link to your story when completed. Your story must be no more than 1,750 words and be a self-contained story set in the world of Malifaux. Any story must include at least two of the Ingredients for the current round. When you use the ingredients, keep in mind they don't need to be literal, please feel free to be creative with them! As the stories are completed, this post will be updated to contain a listing of all the submissions. You are welcome to edit your story up until the submission date. Winning The winner will be selected by overall score, as determined by two methods: A public poll will be created where anyone can vote on their favorite story. Each vote will be worth 1 point. Authors of submissions can vote in this way. A private poll of the authors where they pick their favorite story and a runner-up. These votes are weighted; the favorite story gets 3 points, the runner-up gets 2 points. These votes should be submitted to me by forum PM. All votes must be submitted by the voting date or they won’t count for scoring. You cannot vote for your own submission. If you are an author, you must submit votes for the private poll or you will be disqualified.

  3. And this is what happens when I get used to using a task list but forget to put things on it... Anyway, sorry folks! We are now back on schedule with Iron Quill Feast. Alright, the voting thread. In case we have any new folks wandering in, this is something both authors and fans can participate in, so please feel free to do so! Here are the rules: The winner of this round will be selected by overall score, as determined by two methods: A public poll will be created where anyone can vote on their favorite story.

Haunter- A Fine Night for a Party admiralvorkraft- The Great Soul Train Robbery RarerMonsters- Bad Part of Town Gnomezilla- Overhead The Grue- But Wait, There's More!
  4. Someone for you to invent, actually. Perhaps a person who wears a black tophat, or an assassin that goes with that nickname. Perhaps even a sentient hat! Might also be another type of guard or soldier (like the old Redshirt nickname). Have fun with the idea and see what you come up with!
  5. The Quarantine Zone is actually part of Malifaux City itself. It makes up a large chunk of the North Eastern (I think?) part of the city. The Guild doesn't go in there because it's territory they haven't reclaimed from the Neverborn. As such, Ressers, Arcanists and others hide in there, risking the dangers of the Neverborn to stay near to the city but not leave it.
  6. Hey everyone, welcome to the New Year! I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays. Now that we're back into the swing of some level of normalcy, it's time for a new Iron Quill to ring us in and get the dust blown off those writing muscles! Better get ready, cause there's some great ingredients chosen by your fellow writers to chomp at and be inspired by. The Iron Quill is a writing contest that takes place every month.

  7. Hey everyone! Small batch of stories this time around, but a great showing from you guys. Here's our results! Second Runner-Up is Haunter, with Luck Runs Out! First Runner-Up is admiralvorkraft, with Cutting. And our winner for this round is RarerMonsters, with Stupid! Congrats guys, and great to see all of you writing stories! The next round will kick off after the new year, as December is always crazy for everyone. My current goal is to get things started on Monday, January 4th, 2016. One thing to note- this was the last Iron Quill to be sponsored by Wyrd. Going forward, there won't be a physical prize for winning a round (sorry folks!) and we'll be back to our old system of bragging rights and improving skills. Hope to see you all in the new year!

  14. Nope, not meant to be a piece of dialogue. If you can get it to fit otherwise, that works. Granted, that one is a bit more literal than the other categories. Hope that helps!
