Good work everyone.

I'm going to wrap this challenge up Monday morning, and will declare the winner then.

I am super pleased with the number of submissions turned in on such a short notice, and was also pleased with the consistent quality demonstrated across all the entrants.

After the winner is declared there will be an announcement for the next 500 word challenge

7 submissions in just over a week, with a fairly stringent set of limitations. You have done me proud, Citadellians.

None more so than Dozus with his Buluc, and the Cult of the Rope Woman. Congratulations, you have won the first 500 series challenge.

I'll see about getting you proper compensation for your well earned victory.

Congrats, Dozus!

I am very pleased with the results on this. It amazed me just how much setting information was conveyed through those 500 words. I managed a character, while Suzod managed a couple religions, a culture, a priest, etc. May your prize socks keep your feet warm throughout the winter :)

Also, thanks for inspiring me to write, Scras. At first I didn't think I'd have any ideas, with the limited word count and the topic. But, reading the other entries, something just kind of bubbled up to the surface. Looking forward to more of such challenges  :mace:
