Hey everybody!

I'm going to start new a story-writing debating tournament. The ideas:

1. Both sides must write up a story together (they must continue from each other's start or continuation)
2. PRO and CON does not matter and makes no difference
3. The Instigator beings the story and the Contender will finish the story.
4. Whoever creates the most interesting continuations for the story wins.

Rules for the debates:
1. 3 days per argument
2. Maximum 8000 characters
3. 7 days voting period.
4. 5 rounds (or four rounds if agreed upon by both sides. Anything under four won't be all that interesting)
5. "More convincing arguments" vote is based upon whoever has the more interesting continuation
6. "Spelling and grammar" are awarded as normal
7. "Conduct" should only be awarded if one side seems to be bad mouthed towards their opponent for no good reason. E.g. saying "your continuation suck", "you're a horrible writer" etc.
8. Better references should be ignored.

However, if there is a forfeit, it is an automatic loss of all 7 points (Reference points included)

Structure for this tournament:
Round 1: Beginning of the story and clarification of rules (from the Instigator) and continuation (Contender)
Round 2: Continuation
Round 3: Continuation
Round 4: Continuation
Round 5: Continuation and Conclusion (Contender)

This tournament will be KNOCK-OUT. Winners will continue and losers will be kicked out.

There will be 8 competitors for this tournament:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

I hope this will be a good tournament! :)

* hmmm, nobody else has signed up ever since I signed up, perhaps I am scaring them. Maybe if I withdraw my commitment, other people will sign up and then I could just re-commit later and nobody would even notice! MUAHAHAHAHHA*

Actually I may not be able to sign up

I may or may not sign up for this, mainly because I'm currently in a story debate tourney of my own. But it's basically stalled right now, so I could join this. I always like a good story debate anyway.

Just set up matches as we go along. That'd work quite a bit better.

Does it have to be 8000 characters or can we make it shorter?

I'd prefer to keep it as 8000 characters mainly because it's a story and it should be pretty easy to keep the story going.

Otherwise, I guess it should be ok if both parties agree to a lower character limit.

Are you kidding me? 8,000 characters in a writers debate isn't nearly enough. You are trying to fit character description, plot development, effect, all into a one round argument, which makes every single one of those characters extremely important. Just my opinion though.

Also try asking MIG, and KRF. Both of them have participated and done very well in writers debates before.

I actually wanted to make this tournament based upon a specific genre and as well as a title that I will initiate. Forgot to put this forth into the rules now, but would anyone be interested in having this challenge? Otherwise we can just keep it to a normal story-writing debate etc.
