... in a symphony of chaos! With St. Ballotwine just around the corner, it’s the perfect occasion to show your devoutness and admiration to those fearsome creatures that make order and justice reign as sovereigns on the devastated planes of Ankama – who else but our beloved Clan Members!     Time to bring out your most beautiful, magical, fountain pen! The most romantic, poetic, moving, or even funny of you, will get rewarded for showing such depth and devotion.

Contest procedure:

You have 10 days to send in your letter. The deadline is Monday, February 22nd, 2010 at 5pm GMT. After that, we will have 3 weeks to review your contest entry and choose the winners.

The winner, or winners, will receive an exclusive emote for the duration of a month. With that emote, they’ll be able to kneel down in front of their favorite clan member. Also, in order to gloat and show the world just how unique they are, they will receive a special title, obtainable solely through this contest!

Who are the judges? Who better to judge a writing competition than our beloved translators who spend their days juggling with words?  HarvestPale and Kelloggs will be sitting at the judges table, as will Zidrune the French Community Manager and myself!

Special word from our special guest members of the Jury:

Kelloggs: As a man who knows the life-changing benefits of a consenting romantic entanglement, I uphold to behold your entries with a tearful and equivocal eye.

HarvestPale: My eye may not be as equivocal as Kelloggs', but I shall endeavour to not let the frustration of months of bitter, unrequited love blind me to the power and beauty of your entries. May your soft words melt this old soak's heart.
