LOREFEST is a monthly Voice-sponsored fiction competition that awards bonus Clusters of Ice and First Level Crescents.
The topic for the month of September is The Variant: Joining the Brotherhood.
There are moments in every character’s history that mark a significant change. For members of the Brotherhood, one of the biggest events is finding and joining the Brotherhood, being assigned to a Clan, settling in with a new “family” comprised of other members. Yet where would they be if they never had?
Write about where the variant of your character of choice is in life having never crossed paths with the Brotherhood. Did they fade into obscurity, find inner peace, meet a violent end, obtain glory and honor?
