Literomantic Games July 2024

Credit goes to Foxx for the original idea. Forms and events were made by Senna Nightshade. Prompts for Event 02 and Event 03 were made by The Bard with Many Names.
The Literomantic Games are an international competition of Literomancy sponsored by the Great Houses for the Tourney of Tales and the Word Wars! The Games are divided into ten equally-weighted events. The House with the most points relative to their population at the end of the Games wins the Literomantic Cup*, and each participant with 30 points receives a gold medal*.Those with 20 or more points win silver medals*, and 10 or more points gives you a bronze*! Copper medals are received* for participation.   Participants are encouraged to participate in as many events that interest them, and the only real limit is the number of points received per event.   There has been a channel on our Discord created for the Games! Search for #literomantic-games in the Writing category.   If you wish to post your entries to social media, use the tag #litgames to increase visibility!
