Baldur's Gate Fan Fiction Contest
12:03 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

MacBaldur and IMG's Michael Phillips are teaming up to present a contest for fans of the RPG series Baldur's Gate. MacBaldur is looking for pieces of fan fiction, 600 words or less in length, that describe the background story for a fictional character from the BG universe -- perhaps your own. Here are the details:

In the Forgotten Realms, there are many faces and many stories behind those faces. It is around such stories that I am basing this contest. The rules are as follows:

In 600 words or less, write the backstory for an original character that one might find in the Baldur's Gate universe. All entries must be submitted no later than 09/24/2001. The best story will be selected by a panel of judges, creativity, tone and grammar will be the main judging criteria.

Send all entries to: mike@insidemacgames.com

The winner will receive the following RPG Prize Pack courtesy of our friends at GraphSim, MacPlay and Inside Mac Games:

  • Baldur's Gate

  • Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast

  • Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

  • Summoner

  • A 1 year subscription to the Inside Mac Games MGCD

  • Dungeons & Dragons DVD
Be sure to submit your entry soon; check MacBaldur for details; there is also an archive of past fan fiction there, if you need some inspiration.
