Calling all writers & poets! It’s time again to show off your hidden talents!


All Hallows Eve is quickly approaching,
Get your thinking caps on and those creative juices flowing,
It’s time for spookiness, tricks or treats,
Write us a story to tell us of your feats,
A tale about shades, orcs, goblins and ghouls,
Or maybe a poem that’s not for weak hearted fools,
So put pen to paper and send your creations in,
Your short story or poem, a prize could win.



I have been asked if we could run this again. So from now until October 30th we are running a competition for all you budding authors out there. Your short story or poem could win you a prize so get your thinking caps on and start writing.

Closing Date for entries: Midnight October 30th 2015

Prizes for each category:
1st – 25g
2nd – 5g


The Rules:

1. ALL entries must be sent to Sixfoot via PM following the rules set out below. Please DO NOT link any to this post. This is to try and keep the entries anonymous.

2. The competition is open to all members. If you are not yet a member but wish to take part then please go to our recruitment section and complete your intro post.

3. Entries will be split into 2 categories, you are allowed to enter one piece in each category but any further entries will be disallowed.

The categories are:
a. Short stories around 750 words and no more than 1000.
b. Poems.

4. Entries can be about anything, your character, location, etc. but:

a. It must be kept within the lore of lotro.
b. It must have a spooky theme. (Seeing as it’s Halloween)

5. They must be written in English and must not contain profanities, etc. and must be saved as a Plain text (.txt) document to allow you to attach it to the PM.

6. If any of the rules are broken then the entry will be disqualified.

Here are the Short Story Entries. As there is only 1 entry in the short story section there is no need for a vote but I'm sure Aerongost would love to know what you thought of his story. So please take a read.

Having over-enthusiastically smashed the allowed word count last year with a 'short' story, I'm going to go for a poem this year!

Ah no the voting ended sooner that I thought it would!

Aero, I particularly enjoyed this line, "The fog thickened to a point where you could almost stab it with a sword and cut a hole in it". Your tales always involve a journey, and a descriptive menace!

It took me a short while to work out the first poem was about patching and updating - clever similes!
