Why should the gearheads at have all the fun? Let's launch a new competition right here and see if anyone's interested.

The contest's goal is to produce a short adventure seed following specific guidelines. The contest is strictly unofficial; the only prize is the admiration of your fellow jtas denizens.

The winning entry, if the contestant permits, will be posted to Freelance Traveller, in the Getting Off the Ground subsection of the Active Measures section.

Contest rules:
1- Each contestant can submit up to three different entries.
3- Each entry should be sent separately. The subject line should read "Adventure Seed Contest #1 Entry".
4- The maximum length of an entry is 200 words. Longer entries will be rejected.
5- All entries should be compatible with the published Traveller universe. Different interpretations of said universe (such as the existence or non-existence of organized pirate groups, to name one example), however, are all fair games. Unless specified otherwise in the contest parameters, the seed can be set in any time period (Classic, Rebellion, No-rebellion Alternate, New Era, Interstellar Wars).
6- Including rule mechanics is not forbidden, but should be kept to a minimum.
7- All entries remain the property of the contestant. If a contestant agrees to let his entry be copied and distributed freely (say, on a web page) after the contest ends, he is encouraged to specify this when submitting his entry.

All entries must be sent to before April 15 at
midnight. Do *not* use the "reply" or "reply to sender" buttons. All
received entries will then be posted anonymously to the jtas.jtas group so
that voting can take place until April 22. After voting ends, the winner and
first two runner-ups will be announced.

Entries will be reposted as they appear to all forums where this message appears

And now... the theme of this first Adventure Seed Contest...

The adventure seed must be set on Roup (Spinward Marches/Regina 2007), as described in the article "Upon a Slimy Sea" ( ) and must feature, as a major NPC, a Zhodani who wishes to defect to the Imperium. The Zhodani can be of the Noble, Intendant or Prole caste.

The referenced article is only available to JTAS subscribers - but Alain is willing to consider submissions where the contestant is 'winging it'.

Good luck to all contestants!
