Well the last theme didn't inspire you guys much
We'll close the contest and move on a different theme, this time for writers
As usual, the winner will be featured in the group page, and will get to choose the theme of the next contest.
The theme is : tricks
Surprise, deception, and ruse are all important tools to survive in Felarya. Sometimes one has to think quickly or outside the box to trick others creatures in order to gain an advantage, be it for a predator to catch a stubborn prey or for a prey, to avoid ending up in a stomach !
So tell the story of either a predator in Felarya catching a prey using an unexpected trick : Maybe the predator is using a rare hunting method ? Maybe they're using the terrain to their advantages in a surprising way ? A trap in a trap perhaps ? At any rate, the prey didn't see coming and is probably about to become lunch !
Or tell the story of a prey refusing to go down the hatch quietly and uses a trick to avoid being eaten. Maybe it's an unique defense mechanism ? or a clever ruse to deceive the pred. Perhaps using the terrain ? Or a certain knowledge about the pred ? At any rate the predator didn't see coming and the prey may have pulled itself out of the menu for this time.
I think that theme can allow for some interesting and surprising scenes
Don't forget you can consult the wiki if you need some infos : www.felarya.com/wiki/index.php…
The story will be judged on :
-The writing : Does the story flows well ? is is interesting, original, captivating and pleasant to read ?
-Descriptions of the environment and the setting. In this theme I fel the atmosphere is going to be especially important.
