OOC Category - YC 125 New Eden Capsuleers Writing Contest

This is a test this year.

Usually the writing contest I organize is for in character entries.

Due to the lack of OOC options in recent years, such as Pod and Planet, and due to numerous requests, in addition to the “in character” submissions in the New Eden Capsuleers writing contest, we are opening an “OOC - Out of Character” Category for those stories players may want to tell, but their characters might prefer not to or are unable to!

Same Rules as the Primary Contest and same prize amounts for 1st through 4th place, including eligibility for special prizes. However, all OOC entries MUST be submitted in “Player Fiction” Only and should specifically indicate that they are an entry for the OOC category.

OOC Category Entries so far:

Chongus - “Fresh Icelandic Air”
Maksym Sobic - “About Eve”
Miyoshi Akachl - Stellar Fit OG 3000 (Health & Fitness/Gallente)


Adding our first OOC Entry! Thanks Chongus!

YC 124 NEWCWC Fresh Icelandic Air - Fiction Portal / Player Fiction - EVE Online Forums

So practically,

Case 1:
I have a character of Faction A, but I want to write a IC story set in Faction B that has nothing to do with Faction A and my character, I use this category.

Case 2:
I have no IC character at all but want to submit IC stories, I use this category.


Well if Character of Faction A wants to write and submit the story, icly, it can use the IC category. I suppose an Amarr might have reasons to write and publish about the Matari for example as a work of prose fiction (or non-fiction)!

This is meant for an OOC submission by the player, not the character. Case 2 seems to fall there.
