Dear fellow Tibians,
Some time ago, CipSoft hosted a contest called Call for Letters. In this contest, players got the chance to write a letter to a Tibian NPC. All 40 winners got a reply from the NPC they wrote their letters to. These winning letters and replies can be read in the latest Featured Article: Tibian Letters.
In the contest thread, many, many more letters were submitted, though. We from the Tibiacity staff feel that some of those letters deserve an answer too!
That is where you come in! In this contest, you get to play the role of an NPC – it’s your job to write a reply to one of the letters from this thread. You can pick any letter, as long as it didn’t win CipSoft’s original contest. Time to get creative!
What can I win?
1st prize: Elvish Trophy, Golden Rune Emblem, First Item Choice, Tibiacity Encyclopedia
2nd prize: Elvish Trophy, Silver Rune Emblem, Second Item Choice
3rd prize: Elvish Trophy, Remaining item
Items to choose from: Nightmare Doll, Medal Of Honour, Snakegod Trophy
What do I have to do?
Pick a letter you want to reply to from this thread.
Check if the letter wasn’t one of the winners in this featured article.
Write a reply to the letter from the NPC’s point of view. Keep in mind that your reply should fit within Tibia’s atmosphere and lore.
Post on this thread, or on our thread on the Tibia.com Event Board. Make sure your post includes a link to the letter you are replying to, a copy of the letter you are replying to and your own letter.
All letters submitted in this thread will be judged on several points. These points include but are not limited to:
Creativity: How creative is your answer? Was it fun and interesting to read or did you copy it straight from the game?
Style: Is your answer interesting and easy to read? Note that we will keep in mind that not everyone is a native English speaker.
Relevance: How relevant is your reply to the original letter you were answering?
Tibia-ness: How well does your answer fit into Tibia?
Your letter should be a reply to one of the letters from the contest thread and may not have been a winner in that contest.
You may submit as many entries as you want, but you can only win once.
Each entry may contain up to 200 words.
Your entry should be in the form of a letter, starting with a salutation to the person you are writing to (e.g. “Dear Knight of the White Wolf, …) and ending with a farewell (e.g. Kind regards, Green-dragon).
Your entry should fit Tibia’s atmosphere and lore
Your entry should be yours and yours alone. Copying from any source will lead to exclusion from the contest.
Your entry should not break any of the Tibia rules
All entries should be submitted before 31st March 23:59 GMT. Any entries after this moment will not be judged and will not take part in the contest.
Please make sure to link to the letter you are answering, as this will make it much easier for us
