Well I’m back for some more Voice office related updates and news. Now with some actual updates on some new ways to earn Clusters of Ice and status reports on all the things. I just want to touch on a few new things and highlight some competitions more than anything.
If you head over to the Cluster of Ice wiki page, you will notice some formatting improvements, as well as updates to the ways you can earn Clusters of Ice.
The Voice office will begin to award Clusters of Ice for qualifying official Clan fiction. That isn’t to say Clans can’t do whatever they want fictionally, that still remains under the purview of the Consul entirely, but when done in a beneficial way to the membership, that fiction will now award Clusters of Ice. These fictions must be published to discourse, or a news post in some way so that they are documented on the site.
Specific wording: “ All "official" Clan fiction updates, as submitted by the appropriate Consul to the Voice for approval. Must be published to discourse (forums), or a news report, with URL and dossier # of the author with word counts to the Voice's office. Fiction must be relevant to the Clan, advance the Clan fictional story forward in some manner and incorporate more than one member to qualify.”
This applies to any fictions going forward. I will be working with the Consul from each Clan to look back as far as the assault on the Avenger II at the start of the Dark Crusade for a one time submission of past fiction for consideration for Clusters of Ice to catch us up to current.
Keeping it together: The Voice is running an open ended competition, and will be until July 10th. So check it out and take your shot at a diamond crescent.
An Objective History: Andrelious from Clan Arcona is running another DJB wide competition this time focused on different items your character has owned. Since we’ve all considered this as we responded to possessions surveys, maybe you already have a great idea in mind. So take a look.
Chaos Ensues: Mayda from Clan Scholae Palatinae is running a DJB wide co-op fiction competition that is rather unique, and short. So take a look and considering tracking down another member (or 3) and submitting.
My JW Experience: Mayda from Clan Scholae Palatinae, in keeping with the Judecca World theme is running another short 200-800 word fiction competition including dinosaurs.
Hear Me Roar!: Mayda from Clan Scholae Palatinae, also in her cluster of Judecca World competitions on dinosaurs has a unique one based more on entertainment than writing skill but it may appeal to the more creative among the membership.
Reminder again: Organizers must send their pins and word counts to me, for Clusters of Ice to be awarded. ‘’’Format: Pin#wordcount.’’’
I’ve got a lot of things out there being discussed, especially around the Fiction Society with sanity checks on my own crazy ideas. In the meantime I’m trying to make sure the opportunities are available to earn the necessary awards like Clusters of Ice to properly reflect contribution in the ranks. So you’ll see changes like the Clan fiction awarding.
If you ever have any questions, ideas, feel free to let me know. I do my best to reply quickly.
