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 Eve Fiction Only and should specifically indicate that they are an entry for the OOC category.
