DDO @ TenTonHammer
Create Your Character Contest

Put your imagination to work and win your
pre-order of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach. All you need do
is invent your DDO character. But we're not talking about stats and the
perfect build; we're talking about creating a description and history
for your character that will make them come to life before they ever
take shape in the online world of Eberron.



So, in anticipation of the first-quarter 2006 launch of DDO, it's time
to get your creative wheels in gear. TWO lucky
entrants will walk away with a free pre-order of DDO!


1. OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES

The DDO @ TenTonHammer.com "Create Your Character" contest is
operated by Master Games International, Inc.

Entrants acknowledge and agree that, by participating in the "Create
Your Character" contest, they have read and understand the official
contest rules, and that they will abide by the official contest rules.

Basic Rules and How to Enter:

style="">(a) style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;">   
Beyond what race and class your character will be we want
to know what makes your character tick. This is essentially a contest
in creativity. Your challenge is to write a description and history of
your upcoming DDO character. What does he look like? Where did she come
from? What events and circumstances in his past helped shape him?
What are her goals?

style="">(b) style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;">  
You can be as inventive as you like, but you should
remain true to the fantasy/DDO theme and setting; at least…if you want
a chance at winning.

style="">(c) style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;"> style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">   
You can use whatever device you like to tell your
character's tale, from a short story to a news article to anything else
you can dream up. However, your entry must be written; no artwork,
please.

style="">(d) style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 7pt; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;">  
Your entry should be a maximum of 1000 words long
(excluding the title). Entries over 1000 words will be disqualified.
Spelling and grammar do count for something, so listen to your friendly
word processor when it tells you something's amiss.
