    How It Works

    Contests begin on the first day of the month and end on the last day of the month.

    In order to gain entry, you need to first create a game Campaign. You must then recruit at least 4 players and start the game.
    At this point you will want to reach out to any Staff Member and inform them that you have recruited players, started a game, and you have officially just become someone to keep our eye on, because.....
    If your game is still actively running* on the last day of the month, your username earns three entries into the contest.
    Cutoff for entries is 18:00 UTC -05:00.

    *Definition of "actively running": We must be able to look at your game's activity over the last seven days of the month and see at least one post from every single one of your players, not including yourself. This activity must take place in an In-Character thread as well. Activity in other types of threads will not count.

    If you already have an active game that you began running before the first day of this month, and at some point it fell to three or fewer players (or maybe it never had four or more players to begin with), you may recruit new players this month until you have four or more. After you have done so, inform a Staff Member and we will make sure to check your game at the end of the month just like we would check a new game.
    If it meets the contest requirements, your username will earn one entry into the contest.
    If you already have an active game that you began running before the first day of this month, and it already does have four or more players, inform a Staff Member and we will make sure to check your game at the end of the month as well.

    Additional new games can earn you another 3 entries each, and additional continuing games can earn you another single entry each. So if, for example, you started three games last month and three games this month, your username could potentially earn twelve entries into the contest.

    After the cutoff time for entries, a random drawing will be held among all usernames that made it into the contest for the month. One winner of the drawing will receive one month of free Gold membership and a grand prize of $30. One runner-up will receive one month of free Gold membership. Winners will be announced the following day on the 1st of the month when the new contest begins.
