Movellas have partnered with the biggest online role-playing game in the world, RuneScape, to bring you our newest writing competition!
You may be an experienced veteran of the world of RuneScape or someone who has only ever heard of the game from our banner, but this contest is ready to engage your imagination and skill.
RuneScape takes place in the world of Gielinor, a medieval fantasy realm divided into different kingdoms, regions, and cities. Players can travel throughout Gielinor via a number of methods including on foot, with magic spells or by chartering ships. Each region offers different types of monsters, resources, and quests to challenge players. A guide to the different locations can be found here and a guide to some of the RuneScape heroes (and potential characters for your movella!) are on our blog here.
If you are a newcomer to the world, you can sign up and play for free to get a feel for what you will be writing about.
Once you feel familiar with the world, its time to get writing! We are looking for an adventure story - think quests, getting in and out of trouble, bravery and battles - of no more than 5000 words. It has to be set in the world of RuneScape, but otherwise there are no restrictions to what you write.
As always, the winning movellas will be chosen by a mixture of likes, favourites, reads and the Movellas team's judgement. Here are the incredible prizes you can win:
1st: Signed concept art & $75 voucher to use on the Jagex store
2nd: $50 voucher to use on the Jagex store
3rd: $25 voucher to use on the Jagex store
This is what you can buy in the shop.
