    Default Blackstar Chronicles Description Contest

    I've been writing a novelization of the SL for the past few months (link in my signature), and have recently been trying to come up with a good description of the resulting novel for the websites I've published it on. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to come up with something I like. So now, I'm asking the rest of the community for help.

    The Challenge: Write a short description/back cover blurb for the novel. You don't have to read the novel (but it might help), just write what you think would be a good description for a novelization of SL. protagonist's name is Vance Dawes.

    The Reward:Your description (or a modified variant thereof) will be used as the official novel description, granting you fame and fortune. Well, probably not fame and fortune, but you will be credited for your work, and added to the list of contributors for the novel.

    In addition, you can submit a character name (and a background, if you wish) along with your description, and I will add that character to the novel. Keep any characters reasonable (epicpwnage117 might be a fine name for an MMO avatar, but I doubt you'd meet anyone by that name in real life).

    K. Here we go :-)

    "The year is 2368. Mankind is starting into their second apocalypse. Backstabbing, war and tyranny are running rampant throughout the universe.

    Vince Dawes is a young man who always dreamed of joining the UC Military and defending his species, known as a "human", but what he discovers leads him into something much bigger than he ever could imagine. His journey will swallow him up, take him captive, and shoot him through the likes of space and time."

    Hope you like! I didn't read the whole story, only what year it took place.

    A new York times best seller (top of cover)

    A time had come. The time to revolt against the weak government of URS. The facility ship Blackstar had been set up as HQ for the rebels. Mercenary's were recruited for the final strike. But what one mercenary found changes the whole motivation of the rebels, and the the universe... journey as Vince Dawes and find out what was the government and what became know as the Scorn.

    also:if you can add Hellrussian as a character in ur book.He is a former space Cossack who fights with a enormous mini gun and swigs vodka.
