Hello all fellow Secret Worlders!
To celebrate the 4th Megaversary of Secret World Legends, we are announcing a flash fiction writing contest sponsored by the League of Monster Slayers. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 stories as decided by our panel of judges, and winning stories will be posted on the forums for everyone to enjoy.
The theme of the contest is on “monsters” in the Secret World. Please write an original story featuring your favorite monster in the game. This can be a named NPC like a boss or mission mob, or just a random Fresh Zombie in Kingsmouth. Is your character desperately fighting off a pack of demon hyena? Is a revenant hunting a party of doomed Orochi soldiers? Is a Fata Padurii just trying to go on a normal date for once? Highlight the things that make this monster your favorite.
