The Inner Circle presents:
LEGENDS OF THE ANGELS 2015
Sons of the Lion! It is time to remember the glory of our brothers past and present. From their efforts in battles past we may learn more about our enemies and how to defeat them. The Tower of Angels seeks the brothers of the Unforgiven to recount the tales they have learned and experienced for the benefit of their fellow brethren.
So arm yourselves with your quills and your cogitators!
Activate your savants and servitors!
Gather your thoughts and let loose the Scribes of Battle!
The Legends of the Angels is a Dark Angels Forum Event aimed at participants creating unique stories about a character, squad or chapter of the Unforgiven. This is being opened up to include the brothers of the Liber Forum to write about their DIY chapters and give them a chance to have their warriors written about and their victories noted.
HOW TO ENTER:
1. Make an oath in this thread in the following manner:
I, <<your name>>, Scribe of the Unforgiven, in the name of the Lion, make this oath of moment to submit a completed story about <<insert character or squad here>>.
2. Write your story and submit it in this thread before Midnight of February 1, 2016. Works in Progress should be done in their own threads with the final submission posted in this thread. The Final story must be posted in full. Links to the WIP thread is NOT a proper final submission. This is to help create an Anthology of stories in each of the forums.
MODERATI REQUEST: I do not have the powers to edit a thread so can I ask a Moderati to clean up the thread to remove unnecessary posts so that after the completion of the competition it is nothing but the final stories?
1. The story should have a minimum 200 words Spell-check and grammar-check are highly encouraged and recommended.
2. Must include the Dark Angels (Legion or Chapter or any of their Successors Official or DIY). Allies are allowed to be included as well, but the focus should be on the Unforgiven. (Liber Forums is Exempt and may write about their own chapter.)
3. Optional: Include artwork or photos of scenes from your battles using your painted minis.
4. Optional: Include characters or squads that were a part of a prior Painting Competition or the Brotherhood of Angels Competition or MAY be a part of a future Competition.
POSSIBLE STORY IDEAS
- A narrative of a squad or individual marine’s performance in battle (from one of your games).
- A story taking place in the time of Horus Heresy, possibly a link to the BL books.
- Fleshing out a story in the History of the Dark Angels (The Fall of Gideon - Master of the Ravenwing, The Subterfuge of Supreme Grand Master Anaziel and the creation of the Disciples of Caliban, etc…)
- A story about one of the Heroes of the Dark Angels (Asmodai’s First Black Pearl, The Fall and Rise of Ezekiel, etc…)
The Shadow Guard’s simple steps to Fan Fiction:
- Pick a model in your army, it doesn't have to be the commander nor your favourite model. It may be even a lowly neophyte or a veteran Deathwing Sergeant.
- Think of a game you played where this particular model did very well. Eg: A devastator lascannon marine who took out three tanks? A scout sniper who did the enemy commander in? A chaplain who led an amazing charge... you get the feel….
- Write down how the battle took place building around the model in question.
- Then go back and add some information about the early years and then follow up with the aftermath.
- Keep reading it again and again and you will find that you can add additional details to flesh things out and voila Luther's your traitor!!
