At long last, the 6th annual Samurai Fiction Contest is on! This year, I'm switching it up a bit. Rather than choosing a genre, everyone will choose one of the following plotlines:

1. A Samurai has lost something and is searching desperately for it.

2. A Samurai decides to look into possible supernatural activity in an abandoned castle/temple.

3. Clever peasants outwit a Samurai.

4. A modern-day scholar finds a firsthand account of a historical event that reveals a famous incident didn't go down like it was always believed.

5. A Samurai gives up his worldly possessions to seek solitude and enlightenment alone in a cave in the mountains, but finds something else instead.

6. A Samurai believed to have been killed reappears years later with a secret.

This year, the contest is sponsored by AnimEigo: http://www.animeigo.com and all prizes are supplied by them.

Grand/First Prize: The Ultimate Samurai Musashi 5 DVD Boxed Set and an Animeigo T-shirt

Second: Samurai Vendetta DVD and an Animeigo T-shirt

Third: Blind Menace DVD and an Animeigo T-shirt

All Animeigo T-shirts are size XL. The number of placing entries depend on total number of entries. Additional prizes may be awarded for honorable mentions, etc.

Deadline is November 25th, and all of the necessary details are available here:

It's getting down to the wire -- If you need until Sunday, I can offer a grace period, but PM me first, otherwise you'll be considered late.
