Hey BattleDawners, there has recently been a great volume of support for some more forum games, so I guess it was only a matter of time before this happened so.. Do you have a writing itch you just haven't had the time to scratch? Well here's some more incentive to..BD style ;)

Basically, you have one week to create a short story (max length of 500 words) that contains a large reference to BattleDawn. It could be the first person perspective of a solider, going into battle or the story of some guy who's life has been absolutely consumed by the game which caused him to lose his job. Possibilities are endless! The stories will be judged by current mods and admins, including myself. Wait, did I forget to mention that there's also a 400 blue token prize for the best story?

Get writing, submit your stories below and good luck!


Entries close on the 29th/30th of March

Earth resource has been depleted, the only resource that they can find on Earth is Metal and Oil. As a result, big countries colapsed and smaller nations called colonies where created.

Then one day, some archeologists find a ruin in the Bermuda zone, they found some kind of a code, a puzzle. After months of research, they finally solved it, however nothing happened. Thinking that it was broken. The researchers returned home.

One month later, several ships from outer space landed on Earth. Thinking that it's an alien invasion, some nations has come together and launch a big attack to one ship, try to show to the invader the strength of Earth military and attempt to make them retreat.

But they find nothing on that ship, no weapon, no aliens, nothing. Have no use for the ship, they decided to return home.

However, a group of scientists has decipher the documents retrieved in the ships. These ships are actually wat is left from the long lost ancient technology, which could create an unlimited resources once you gather all 10 ships. As a result, wars broke out between colonies in hope of using these ships (known as relics) for their own use.

After tons of battles, tons of soldiers have fallen, one nation succeeded. And they decided to bring unlimited resource to all colonies. Thinking war will be stopped and peace will return again, they happily return homes.

One month later, they receive news. There seems to be a huge wars going on between a lot of colonies. They send tons of soldiers, recruited by the unlimited resources to each other. The owners of the relics couldn't make themselves to believe how large human greed is. It can't never be satisfied.

Large scaled wars just keep going on, trillions of soldiers and innocent people died, millions of nuclear warheads launched. As a result, humanity was deleted.

However, some people still alive...

The survivor of the great war that destroyed Earth escaped to the space and set a base in the Saturn ring. There, they found other relics. Human greed once again roar the universe, as every base attack each other.

Human seems never learn the lesson of history. Now in the edge of humanity extinction, a group of scientists tried to use the enormous technologies lie in the relics to save mankind. However, they have trigger a time-space distortion. As a result, mankind was warped to a planet, where monsters, dwarves and elves ruling the places.

With human technology, mankind succeeded in making peace with other intelligent life-form, bringing flying ships which use woods as fuel and develop a shield which uses mana to recharge. They live happily in peace.

For several generations...

300 years later, some mysterious ships appear in the sky. "It's the relics" said a historian. Human, though live happily in this planet, always want to return home, to Earth. A group of scientists are sent to the relics in order to search for a way. However, they meet resistances. It is from the biggest nation, they want to use the relics power for their own use. There is no other way, other nations must stand together and fight.

After 100 years of fighting, at last the biggest nation has fallen. The relics have been researched carefully and human is once again, warp to another planet, close to Earth, called Mars.

There they found a shocking truth.

An allien race call Kashira is going to invade Earth and they are making a base in Mars, attempting to use the relics to support them.

Once again human has to stand together against the Kashira. In the end, human wins, take the relics and chase Kashira back to their homeworld. Too tired of war, human decided to use the relics for the whole humanity. They use resources created by the relics to revive Earth. After 2000 years, Earth has been revived, and everyone live a peaceful life.

Sometimes, some historians wonder "Why the relics are everywhere?". But it seems to be never answered.

hmm no entries?? looks like not many writers here.. anyway here is my short story -

Era Of Champions


The era of fantasy is gone, when dragon n knights ruled the ancient earth. Many brave rulers left unforgettable mark with their ruthless dominance over the entire land. Great alliances were formed, betrayals, friendship, wars and the ticks passed by. Soon it was the age of earth.
The era of earth saw the invention of nukes and modern soldiers and machines of wars. The ruthless tanks razed the earth. There was chaos and destruction everywhere. Soon people realized all the wars were useless. And that is when they started playing battle-hug. Everyone would just bow down to one mighty alliance and give them all the valuable resources as tribute. Thus the big alliances grew more powerful and arrogance. Then one fine day disaster struck upon earth in the form of an asteroid. The few who could afford ran for their life into the nearby planet.
Thus begins the era of mars. Anyone who had expected a new life in a new planet was wrong. It is in the nature of man to grow and expand. The innermost desire to control the entire red planet led to formation of new alliances again. They say history repeats itself. The same old stories again. Wars, betrayals, friendship, bravery, cowardice, good fortune, bad luck, all the factors which ran the era of mars. The technology of human had become so powerful that now they were ready for further exploration.
Again another age or era had arrived, the era of galaxy. When people fought over supremacy in new galaxies far far away. Everyone had forgotten the old ways. Now there were lot of new changes brought forth by time. The hope of man was lost. Until the galactic federation made an announcement; the return to the blue planet once more.
No one knows how this new unnamed era goes. Some call it the era of champions. Many a warrior has been arisen from their graves. Many who had called it a day has put their armour back and is ready for the new mission. The war horns are blowing. Will the earth get to see the ways of the old world or the new world shall dominate? Only the time shall tell. Until then the ticks are paused.

I'm going to make an entry. I hope it counts since not many posted?:

Quote:
The 1200 dwarves marched for 10 days. They finally reached the enemy castle, though first glancing at the pure white peaks of the mountain nearby. There were signs of a recent battle, body strewn across the field and marks on the stone of the castle walls.

The commander of the dwarven force examined the bloodshed. It showed a total defeat. He counted 400 dead from his side but not a single corpse of the enemy. It seemed like the enemy decided to leave the bodies here to rot, an insult and disrespect. The commander felt anger rising within himself.

He turned to his men, who were eager to prove themselves on the field and avenge their fallen kinsmen. "Kinsmen! You see our dead strewn on the fields. Our enemy has decided to insult and left them out here. It is our duty to defend our homes and people. We do not know how many we shall face and do not know how many of us shall live, but know that we fight for honor and die for it!" He raised his ax. This was followed by a chorus of chants, vibrating off the walls of the castle.

He turned to the castle and slowly approched. The gates opened, first revealing a glimpse of the enemy force, then the gates were open fully and before them stood 2900 swordsman, some with blood on their silver blades. The commander's face grew red as he saw the horns of dwarven helmets worn around the necks of some swordsmen. He roared and charged, followed by a stampede of dwarves behind him.

The battle was fierce. They were outnumbered more than 2:1 by their enemy but the dwarves fought with hate and anger. The sounds of screams filled the air as the axs of the dwarves found their targets. The battle lasted for an hour, ending when the enemy flag was downed and the dwarf flag raised. The last of the enemy was killed and the surviving dwarves gathered.

They realized that only 200 survived. The ground beneath them was pure red. Though it was a great victory in a long bloody war, they felt no happiness. In their soul, there was only an emptiness. Once filled with excitement then with anger, it was now empty, never to be filled.

As they left the castle, they passed the broken body of the commander, who lay on the ground impaled by a sword. Around him lay his victims, who he had taken down heroically. They paused a moment before marching off. Had their commander felt the emptiness they felt? Was it what made them fight to death and even fight as they died, like their commander?. Was this emptiness the loss of their innocence? Was it blood, anger or hate that made them forget till death?

These questions didn't last long, for they fell during a future battle. Such was the nature of war that this single question would only be silenced through death and never answered in life.

497 Words.
(CORRECTION:1 tick=1 day. 1 infantry unit was multiplied by 100. Based on a recent battle in a Battle Dawn fantasy world)

I hope this gets counted in. If not, then I'm fine with that as well.
