Entry Deadline
--------------
Saturday, March 6th, 2004, Midnight MT


Entry Rules
-----------
* To enter, email me one or more group or organization
  concepts in the following format:
  - Group name
  - Membership details (Who belongs or can join?)
  - Group purpose (Why does the group exist?)
  - Plot hook, conflict, or story ideas

For example:

- The Blind Beggars. A social club for wealthy merchants to
collude and make secret details out of sight from the law.
Members meet during late afternoons at the Silver Saucer
Cafe to play cards. They use card codes and game-speak to
make their deals while maintaining the appearance of a
public social gathering. Captain Remdon of the City Guard
has his suspicions and wishes to hire the PCs to reveal the
merchants' plotting. He hopes one of the PCs will pose as a
wealthy merchant, new to town, to infiltrate the group while
the other PCs observe and investigate through other methods.

- The Royal Ministry of Tax & Revenue. Responsible for
setting, collecting, and managing taxes, tariffs, and fees,
this group is extremely valuable to the Queen as it provides
her the funds for maintaining her war against the
barbarians. It's said that agents purposely let smugglers in
and out sometimes so they can determine who the Big Fish
are--the bulk buyers and sellers. Currently, the Ministry is
being pressured by the Cutlers' Guild to get to the bottom
of a recent rash of counterfeit--and substandard--knives and
forks. It's peak tax season though, but the Cutler guild
leader is the Queen's cousin so the Ministry is being forced
to deal with the situation.


Entries should between 25 and 250 words. Multiple entries
are welcome to give you a greater chance of winning. Send
entries to: johnn@roleplayingtips.com
(Feel free to let me know your prize preferences too.)
