Hey Tankers!

 

It is October which means it is time to let the ghost and ghouls out to play! Your task in this contest is to write a short story (no more than 1500 words) based around Halloween. This could be a scary horror story (try to keep it as PG as possible) or a light-hearted prank that you, as a commander or member of a crew, would like to pull / tell while out with your comrades. 

 

The following prizes will be awarded to 5 winners: 

 

1st place: 5,000 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time
2nd place: 3,000 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time
3rd place: 1,500 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time
4th place: 1,000 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time     
5th place: 500 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time

I did something kinda fun here, to see what my monster looks like check out the Haunted tanks contest, my entry :)

 

The Reaper of Westfield

Spoiler

1522 (but the last sentence is just 8 words of fluff)

(story was edited, added to and generally modified now that I know the correct word count)

was a great thing really, got to flesh out more of what was going on. Hope you all enjoy it :)

 

Happy tanking everyone

Hey Tankers!

 

Sorry about that little typo there :D Just to clarify: 1500 words or LESS (but I won't penalize you if you go slightly over that limit.)
