The Rules

The basic idea is pretty simple - some VSF (Victorian Science Fiction) scenarios are designed, the readers of TMP pick their favorite, and then the Editor organizes a TMP Project to paint and prepare everything needed for the scenario!

What this means is that this is your chance to help shape TMP contents for the near future...

The Requirements

The requirements are these:

  • The scenario must be set on Mars during the Victorian era.
  • Background - space travel was invented in the 19th Century, and Earth's major powers - Britain, France, Germany, and others - are competing to control Mars and its natives. In the low gravity of Mars, flying ships are a major form of transportation.
  • Scenario must include a title, list of forces, map, game length, victory conditions, and any other information needed for play
  • Scenario must also include a recommended figure scale, and a list of recommended miniatures (right down to catalog numbers) - after all, if you win, we'll need to obtain the figures...
  • You may also suggest specific rulesets that you want used for the scenario. If the scenario requires special rules, you need to include those.
  • fluff (fictional introduction) optional

The Deadline

All entries must be received by midnight, Pacific Standard Time, November 30th, 2003.

Email entries to the Editor at Graphics should be sent as attachments, rather than embedded in a text file. The document should be in plain text or a popular word-processor format (not HTML). Remember to include your membername at TMP!

The Prizes

Japanese aeronef from Brigade Models

OK, it wouldn't be much of a contest without prizes, would it?

Chinese dig moves to attach a Russian destroyer - Aeronef models by Brigade Models

Brigade Models, a major manufacturer of models for the VSF game Aeronef, is providing Aeronef vouchers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the contest - £40.00 GBP, £25.00 GBP and £15.00 GBP respectively.

That's enough prize money for a lot of ships...
