Our past Codex contests (I, IIIII, IV, V) have been, if I do say so myself, a lot of fun. With that in mind, we want to introduce...

Their Finest Hour: Cities in Wartime

  • These locations should be linked in some way to any completed Invasion, Rebellion, or war-themed Dominion.
  • Once approved, entries will be judged on quality, effort, and how well they tie into the uniqueness of the Invasion, Rebellion, or Dominion.

Lanter Kells this says invasion, rebellion or dominion, but what about faction threads etc. that involved war?

We won't be doing that, because then we have to figure out how and where to draw the line between 'a community was involved in this thread' and 'this was me and my two buds bombarding a planet in a private thread.' Invasions, Rebellions, and (to an extent) Dominions are guaranteed to have a good few people involved in something big enough to change the map.

Skirmish qualify, or is that more faction threads? Lanter Kells

Assuming this ship gets approved, I'm giving it to whichever submission I personally like the most. Just my little sideline prize, since I won't be judging the main contest.

Darth Saarai and Irajah Ven brought up some good points in private, so I'm clarifying the rules a little.

Submissions should be approved by the 19th, when the contest closes. However, if judging takes a bit longer and approval hasn't been finalized by the 19th, those subs will still be put on the final list of contestants at no disadvantage, in almost all circumstances. When in doubt, I prefer to send as many submissions as possible to our panel of judges.

For clarification's sake: yes, I've stepped down from Staff. Yes, this contest will still go ahead. All that's needed is for me to message the final contestant list and the judging rubric to each of the volunteer judges, and I'll do that on the dates noted above. Then I'll just total up the scores and pass them to @Mahet. Nice and easy.
