It's finally time, we are back with another contest to hopefully be a springboard for new and old authors to find their ground on this never-ending sea of stories. Unlike before, this contest will last 4 months! Starting from today, it will last till the 11th of November (00:01 AM GMT+7). Similar to the previous contests, all authors will have to follow at least one of the given themes. Before we get into the gritty details, a big thank you to all the sponsors!
Our lord, @Tony
The tentaacles, @Ace_Arriande
The wizard/cat @MelasD

Well first of all, how do you enter? You upload a story onto ScribbleHub. Then proceed to your story dashboard, upon scrolling to the bottom you'll find the contest section. Select the contest tag to enter the contest.
Here are the following themes! Remember you only have to use at least one and if you are the devil incarnate then you can attempt to combine them!
The list to the contest entries: https://www.scribblehub.com/contest/second-tempest-contest/
- Non-mainstream weapons.
- Duality of a secret life (The MC live a normal and a secret life)
- Exploration of Space (Genre: Sci-fi)
Here's the FAQ:

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)
