CONTEST - The Hero Origin Story

by RaZoR LeAf » Fri Apr 24, 2015 7:20 pm

The Hero Origin Story Contest
Suggested by: Big Bag Bug


Every hero has a legend, this much we know. But of the heroes that we know, what has led to them to their current role? This contest will resolve that.

Each entry must first state their intent to enter, upon which they will be privately given a random hero from any of the three games. You can state which game you would like a hero from, but not the specific hero. It is the up to the entrant to write a short story that tells of the circumstances that leads the hero they have been given, into the fight they are now currently involved in.

Your story should be measured with a word count (you can use http://www.wordcounter.net if you don't have a word processor with the feature). It should be no less than 2000 words, but no more than 10000. Good spelling and grammar is important, but not essential, you are being judged on your story being interesting, compelling and most of all relatable to that character.

Your story's focus is on one character, but you can include others if the are required as part of the tale. Where or when you begin the story is up to you, but it should end with the hero's decision or ultimate involvement in the main storyline of the game they are a part of.


Requirements (My lawyer made me write these)
  • You have until 7th July to submit your entry (7 weeks).
  • All entries must be submitted to me via a Private Message.
  • I will accept edits and updates on your entries up until the closing date. Please resend the entire entry and I will use your most recent submission.
  • I need your entire entry in one PM. Sections sent separately will not be counted.
  • I will perform a final word count on your entry. Entries under the minimum threshold will be disqualified.

I choose Kingdom Rush for my game of choice.

I most definitely would like to participate. ;)

Frontiers, for sure. BTW, are heroes like Alleria and Malik still game, as they already seem to kinda have origins in KRO.

Yes they are. They have origins in the game, but it's fiction, so if that's the hero you have you just write a different story for them.

I'll be writing for Frontiers, so come Sunday I'll ask someone to give me two choices as well.

One thing I forgot to consider. Do you guys want me to include the three secondary heroes from Frontiers too (Lucrezia, Black Corsair and Rurin)?

They're pretty neat, though personally I feel like the true Frontiers heroes have much, much more potential, so we should stick to them, especially considering the scarce few people signing up for KRF.

So if I lied in order to get the color I wanted, would I still be black because that means I am willing to do anything to achieve my goals?

Whoops, I forgot. we had our heroes picked.(Just when I was thinking about an epic balad for Ingvar)

Oh well, I'm definitely sure I'll manage. What exactly are we looking for? A description of the hero's origin? A naration from the hero's perspecitve?

How you write it is up to you, so long as it fulfils the criteria.

Though I'd rather not see any scripts:

Ingvar: You won't like me when I'm angry!
Ingvar smashes things with his hammer.
Ingvar: See?


These are horrible.

Personally waiting on whoever got Eridan and Alric, my two favorite heroes. To whoever got them, be sure to do well!

It is sorry, but there will be other contests in the future that you can take part in.
