Hublets unite, it’s time to prove yourself again in another contest! For those that participated in SSSC and SAC, you should know how it works now but there have been changes so let me explain. You are about to compete with each other in order to win the grand prize and claim yourself to be the one and only Adventus Author.

It should be noted that this competition isn’t an official ScribbleHub competition! Now let’s go into the gritty details before you charge forward.

Info.png

This is an original series contest only which mean that we’ll only allow new entries that would be exclusive for ScribbleHub for the duration of the contest. Unlike SAC and similar to SSSC, The Adventum Contest has themes! Hip, hip, hurray… Here are the themes:

Theme (Pick at least 1):
  1. Town/Kingdom/Empire Building
  2. Reincarnated as an X (Anything non-human)
  3. Combination of Magic and Technology
You only have to pick one of the themes but can combine them if you decide to be edgy and hardcore.

To enter the contest, you have to select the contest tag (The Adventum Contest) when editing your story information!

Story entry list can be found here: https://www.scribblehub.com/contest/the-adventum-contest/

I can already hear the questions in your mind so let’s answer them while we are at it.

Q: Is it fine to post the story elsewhere after the competition ends?

A: Yes, you can post the story anywhere after the contest has concluded. However, the story will be disqualified if the story is posted on other platforms before the conclusion of the contest.

Q: Can I use an alternate/spin-off/fanfic of an existing story?

A: No, you can not. It must be an original story with no link to an existing story/world.

Q: What if I’ve written a story that fits the requirement but never posted it before?

A: Since there’s no way for us to check when you wrote the story, as long as you’ve never posted it anywhere else before, it is perfectly fine to use it as a contest entry.

Q: Can I post the story on Patreon to earn money from it during the contest? (Advanced chapters)

A: You can use advanced chapters. However, your story will solely be judged based on what you’ve posted on ScribbleHub!

Q: Can we get badges/titles?

A: As mentioned before this is not an official competition hence we don’t provide that as prizes. But we do have prizes thanks to our sponsors.

Q: Is there a max word count and can I submit more than once?

A: There is no max word count and yes you can submit more than once.

Q: Who would own the copyright to the story?

A: You authors will retain all the right to the story.

Q: Can I advertise the story?

A: Yes you definitely can!

Now let’s go into the rules just so that you don’t accidentally disqualify yourself.

I might use this as an excuse to start a new novel.

Some questions; about 2), does it have to be reincarnated, or just transform/mutate/body-swap?

Then, about 3), elaborate technology.

I've always wanted to write an empire-building story. Maybe I'll write one for this contest.

just in time, i kinda want to write something about kingdom building, but the mc is so damn hilariously incompetent.

all of the other kingdom building seem to try to make things perfect, so it gets boring to me.

not sure if i can write 40k words though, but i might try when my schedule is cleared up.

I think I'll consider doing that.

Can be body-swap but the MC must not retain their original body.

Technology here is really left up to your interpretation. You could either go with machinery or science, as long as it's just not solely magic.

Once you post your story, remember to include the contest tag when editing your story.

Just to clarify, does a structured magic-system based on a scientific approach alone or science that is based on magic and magical ingredients alone count?
