Shadowbane Contest Winner
8:45 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

After counting down over the past week, the Shadowbane web site has finally revealed the winner of their fan fiction contest. The first place prize went to Britton Gregory for the piece, "Ballad of the Siege of Vodiranon." While everyone in the top five submitted excellent work, Wolfpack seemed particularly impressed with Gregory's use of sweeping destiny. Since we don't want to give away any of the story, here's a clip from their write-up on the piece:

At last, the final story arrives. Our next author offers a story that has action, drama, and purpose. But more so than that, our winning author delivers to us the most difficult aspect of fiction to achieve - a sense of destiny.

Imagine living in a time of great movements in history. A time when the fates of ordinary men and women only flicker and dim in comparison to the blinding power of heroes, demons, and mighty generals.

What can be said for those whom the bards miss, and fail to sing about? What small lives will change, when the rush of destiny sweeps all into war? This story offers an all too brief look at mighty times, and even hints at those yet to come.

Be sure to head over and check out the posted works of all the winners. Shadowbane fans are truly some talented folk, as evidenced by these writings. The winners will receive a variety of prizes, including betas of this much-anticipated massively-multiplayer online role-playing game and signed merchandise from the Wolfpack team.
