Scrasamax has already brought the 100 Word Submission to the Citadel. This would be the logical next step. As he has pointed out in his submission, the idea has it's merits and flaws. The same will doubtless be true of this one.
Why am I putting this up here?
Whilst I love the idea of the 100 Word Submission, I just feel that there's never enough room to convey each important point to the reader. The format already exists, but it'd be neat to see it used on Strolen's Citadel as well.
The author has more words at their disposal with which to craft their submission, thus allowing them to write up their sub without having to edit and re-edit to cut words down to fit within the accepted limit.
500 words or less, but not more.
Aside from that, go nuts. There's nothing wrong with shorter submissions and while it is nice to read longer, sometimes epic ones, the shorter ones are without doubt to my mind more useful in the short term.
- Whilst this might seem a lame cop-out to some, the sub is again, intentionally short. Scras' sub already has all the pro's and con's for what is essentially the same idea, just longer, with it's benefit.
- Set to Codex to keep everything together.
- Will consider changing this to a Wiki if the interest is there. Yay? Nay?

The Heart of Winter ( Locations ) Area - Tundra/ Arctic
Perhaps you've heard of Winter's Gem, and of the tragic fate of the Lady Karina. And perhaps not. It is, after all, a tale unspeakably old. Yet the Earth does not forget, and those of us who guard it do not wither...
Nine thousand years she has slumbered, while Winter diminished. So obsessed was He in her care, that He allowed Summer to run unchecked. His power dwindled, and Summer grew. There is a great unbalance in the world, young ones. One that I fear will break the back of the Earth itself, if not addressed. Winter must return. It is the Way.
