    Thank you! What an unexpected surprise! I am truly honored to be chosen 2nd out of all of the other excellent entries! Congrats to the other winners, Aetherios & Devious_T and to everyone else who submitted a story, you all really did great work and should be very proud.

    Truthfully, I didn't think I had a chance.

    Thanks again!

    A couple of things to note:
     
    All dates are from official lore and previously written short story already established as lore.
     
    Just as in the lore, I have included brackets in the story to frame all references to names that may change (i.e. UMF)
     
    In this story, somewhere around the end of the 21st century, shortly after the “Rebirth” program was implemented by the [uMF], the Gregorian calendar was replaced with a calendar based on seasons, known as the cycle calendar.
    The new calendar was implemented partially to promote the Rebirth program (Rebirth Day!), but also to assist those involved in the project, in the hopes that when/if they arrive on another world, they have some kind of calendar/dating system that they are familiar with and is easily adaptable to the new planet. (i.e. a seasonal calendar)
     
    On Earth each cycle has roughly 91 days and correspond loosely to the following months/seasons:
     
    -Rebirth Day = The 1st day of the year in the cycle calendar and is always on the Spring Equinox
    -First Cycle = March, April, May (Spring)
    -Second Cycle = June, July, August (Summer)
    -Cycle Day (also jokingly known as Recycle) = The Autumnal Equinox
    -Third Cycle = Sept, Oct, Nov (Fall)
    -Fourth Cycle = Dec, Jan, Feb (Winter)
     
    Cycle dates are often referenced as the 40th day of Cycle1, 2536 (or 40C1, 2536.)
     
     
    I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE STORY!

    I wasn't completely happy with my first entry, so here's round two. Completely different story, completely different viewpoint.
    I've read some really good stuff on here, so good luck to all!
     
    Hope you enjoy!

    Ooooh, that's very nice! I'm even happier now that I managed to write all those words (it was loooong). Will we have a little "participation prize" every time? That might be a cool incentive to participate.
     
    Another question: is there a chance for non-winning entries to still somehow be included in the game's lore, at least for little elements of the stories? That would be, in my opinion, an even greater reward than any prize. I was mainly trying to aim at that, actually!

    Dunno though what two stories mean for the contest, NQ has to decide

    Do all of the winners get the - Unique in-game title: "Famous Writer" - or only the community winner? It kind of makes sense to me that they all should get the title as well?
     
    Thanks,
