Contribute to Devos IV ?

Well, if you live in Great Britain and/or have children, then you are probably aware of the 500 words competition.

If you're not, then in a nutshell, it's a competition for kids to write a story in 500 words.  Winners in various age categories are voiced up by A list celebs and performed for the benefit of the Duchess of Cornwall, who hosts the finale/prize giving each year.  It gets hundreds of thousands of entries annually. 

"Ok Zzzzz, where are you going with this ?  Will I get to meet the Duchess of Cornwall ?"

Well, no.  It is almost certain that if you're reading this, you're too old to enter.  However, if you're still reading this, then this is your invitation to whup up something for Devos IV.  This year's official 500 words competition ends closes today, but I'll leave this invitation up, at least for now.

500 words is fine, and there is no prize beyond me posting it up on this blog.  If you feel the need to mug up on Devos IV, then any of the posts with the 'background' or 'the campaign' tags could be where you might find inspiration.  There are any number of Inquisitorial Warbands (of all denominations) heading to Devos IV as a result of the conclave of thingamy, so there's a mine of opportunity there.  And there's the fragmented remains of the PDF, the gangs and muties and CSM in the city, just being joined in an audacious move by a large contingent of Blood Pact.  What's not to like ?

There are a lot of mentions of units from other people's blogs in here, if you're not sure then ask, I can generally find the mentions...

If you hit up my profile you can email me.  A word file would prolly be best and if you want to illustrate it, so much the better. 

So if there's something which you think fits Devos IV but not your campaign (lookin' at you, Jornathi boys) then here's your invitation.

As ever, all of the (in this case, wonderful cosplay) picts are ripped from the internet with apologies to the artists.


  1. I'm up for this, I'll have to get my thinking cap on and have a dig through the stories again and see what the 569th division of the 44th corps have been up to!

  2. I haven't the wherewithal to write a military tale to match your setting, but you have me interested with the idea of Inquisition inclusion. Hrm... I'll think on it.
