Al Norris Posted January 29, 2018 Report Share Posted January 29, 2018 With the undoing of the One Ring, the tower of Barad-dûr was broken and the terror of Sauron was ended, at long last. His land, Mordor, was decimated. Of the Seven and the Nine, whose powers were entwined in the One, they were destroyed when that Ring was undone. Of the Three, much less is known as they passed into Valinor. As many, if not most, of the Elves left Middle Earth for Valinor, and the Dwarves went back to their mines, mostly ignoring everything else, the Fourth Age of the World dawned - The Age of Men has come. However, much evil still remains in Middle-earth... There is much FanFict that deals with LOTR. The challenge here is to write on the 4th age, an aspect of LOTR that has been mostly avoided. Your story may be a short story or the basis (first chapter) of a series of continuing chapters... Your choice. Since this is a Gay Story site, we ask that your story deal explicitly with such (a) relationship(s) as it might be affected in Tolkiens world. If an overt relationship or the sexual orientation of your protagonist will detract from the story line it must in some way be strongly implied. In order to avoid any copyright issues, do not use characters that are in print or film. Your characters must be from your own imagination. Your story must be at least 10K words, but no more than 60K words. All submissions must be made to the Castle Roland PR account with a subject of "LOTR Story Submission" by the 25th of July. Anyone may submit a story, however please try to have it edited as it will be presented to the public, as it is submitted. The entries will go live, here at the Forums, on July 29th. While anyone may read the stories, the submitted stories will judged by the Castle Roland Forum Members based on the following criteria: Edited to modify: Anyone may read and vote on the stories! Does the story embrace Middle-earth? Are the characters original and believable? Is the plot well developed considering the word count restrictions? Is the story enjoyable? Would you read more of this story if the author continued it? Would you recommend this story to others? Voting will commence the day the stories are posted and will continue for 2 weeks, August 12th. On Monday, August 13th, the top 3 stories (should there be more than 3 submissions) will be published on the Castle Roland Story Site. Rankings will be announced here and there at that time.
