If you have any questions about how things work in Javyar's Cantina that aren't answered in the sticky on 'How to Contribute a Tale', post them here!

I have a question. Can we submit poems and song fics like the one I did?

Jae Onasi
02-11-2007, 04:25 AM
You can, though my experience has been songfics do better than poems. :)

Maybe an asinine question but who is Javyar?

Javyar's cantina is the one in Taris Lower City.

Is there a limit set on the length of a submission?

Jae Onasi
02-11-2007, 11:50 AM
No limit on the length. :) It can be as short or as long as you'd like.

The poll closes on the 12th, so we should have our winner by the 13th. The winner of this contest chooses the next theme, so if you can wait a week, we should have a new topic.

I moved them all to CEC so people can view them there. The links are still in the Feb Tale topic thread.

Question: Can the story be AU sequel to a book?

Rogue Nine
03-13-2007, 05:44 PM
It can be anything, as long as it conforms to the current theme and Javyar's rules.

Another Q: After they are moved to the CEC can we put them in the archives?

Emperor Devon

That's what I'd guess. People comment in them and mach reviews them, so they look like they count as "normal" fics.

Yes, you can.

I feel as though I will be unable to post the topic that has the fan ficon March 31st. Is it okay to email Jae the fan fiction so that it can be posted? I tried PM but it was too long...

You certainly can feel free to post it in CEC if you don't want to post it by the 31st deadline in the Cantina. :)

Hm, I done so twice and both times, it was deleted. Did you just save it and then deleted it so that it will be placed back here at the end of the contest? Or is there an error that has occured?

The How to post a tale (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=175496) sticky explains it fully and will give you all the instructions. --Jae

Emperor Devon

Nope, nothing's wrong. All fics submitted to the forum are invisible to non-mods until the voting starts.

Ah, okay. Sorry for the confusion, I won't do that again.

Can one person win the Scoundrel's Prize more than once in a row?

Emperor Devon
06-27-2007, 05:08 PM
Nope. You can still enter and receive votes, but you won't be able to pick the next topic.

Jae Onasi
06-27-2007, 06:24 PM
To prevent someone from winning a bunch of times in a row, we decided to state that the winner of one month's contest can't be the winner of the next contest. After all, s/he is picking the topic, and that would give the winner an unfair advantage in the next month's contest. The winner can write a fic for the next month's contest, but they're ineligible to win.

That sounds fair Jae. After all, at the moment, I'm only entering every two months, but that will end soon and what you've come up with is good. So will that mean their Fan Fic can't be voted??

Darth Stephanie

ok, this may sound stupid, but are Duo stories allowed?

JasraLantill
07-13-2007, 09:21 AM
Darth Stephanie, do you mean a story written by two people in collaboration? As far as I know, jointly written stories can be submitted, but only as a single entry. (Meaning you can't write a story with someone else, and then submit another entry on your own.)

Darth Stephanie
07-13-2007, 11:47 AM
yeah, thank you. cause me and Jedi wanted to do that

Endorenna

If I have a fan fic planned that I haven't posted, and a part of it just happens to fit with the topic, can I post it and later post it again with the story? :confused:

Bee Hoon
09-26-2008, 12:49 AM
As long as you haven't posted any part of the submission before, it's fine. If you choose to later absorb that submission into part of a larger story arc (probably once the voting is closed?), I don't think it's an issue :) In fact, I think Writer did that with Fate of the Galaxy Hacker.

Endorenna
09-26-2008, 01:36 AM
Ah, good! One question that I forgot to ask: does it have to be Star Wars?

Bee Hoon
09-26-2008, 01:46 AM
I don't recall it being anywhere in the rules, but it's probably a good idea to keep to Star Wars if possible, since this is a Star Wars forum :D We like lightsabre chop chop things!

Endorenna
09-26-2008, 02:08 AM
lol okay. Thanks again! :D

IIRC, Star Wars is compulsary. It has to be Star Wars. Javyar cannot tolerate foreign dimesions.

Jae Onasi
09-28-2008, 01:18 PM
It's a SW forum, specifically Kotor, so I think it should be contained to SW topics. Not everyone is familiar with some of the other games or anime that seem to come up as stories here.

Endorenna
10-15-2008, 12:32 PM
One last question before the stories come out; are the people who entered allowed to vote?

CommanderQ
10-15-2008, 12:47 PM
How do I get into this sort've thing? I mean the competetion?

Bee Hoon
10-15-2008, 12:58 PM
Endorenna, yes, they are:)

CommanderQ, welcome to the forum! Click here for the full version (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=175496), but basically you just write your story based on this month's topic and start a new thread with it in this subforum. It won't appear until the mods approve it.

Sabretooth
10-15-2008, 01:00 PM
Just post a fanfic into the Javyar's Cantina and it'll be revealed on the stipulated date. Don't worry, there's no registration. :xp:

Be careful when posting, it has to be a shorty and you can't see your fic after you post till it's revealed (and you can't edit it either). And since reveal date is like tomorrow, you have to run. Check out the other sticky threads, they're pretty good.

Endorenna
10-15-2008, 01:00 PM
Thanks, Bee! Figured I better ask before I went and broke the rules. :)

CommanderQ
10-15-2008, 04:20 PM
I sent a story in, But I am off subject in the first part of my story, what's the worse that could happen?

And today is the deadline. ouch

Rogue Nine
10-15-2008, 06:16 PM
If you would like to post the rest, you can PM it to me and I will edit it into your post.

CommanderQ
10-15-2008, 07:19 PM
How would I PM it to you?

I'm still getting used to the different functions here.

Well, I just figured how to PM, this may take awhile. The story is still being developed, so it may not not get to you for a bit.

Endorenna
10-16-2008, 02:37 PM
How long after the deadline does the voting start?

Inyri
10-16-2008, 04:16 PM
Probably when a moderator comes on to approve all the fics and make the poll. Be patient. :)

I was unable to finish mine last night. My Dad had some work to do on the computer, and It was a school night so I couldn't be up all night long...

Could you show some grace?

LordOfTheFish
12-06-2008, 01:30 PM
Ok, I was talking with Endorenna and she said that she thought all entries have to be about Star Wars. Is this so? I couldn't find anything in the rules about this.

JediMaster12
12-08-2008, 07:22 PM
To answer your question LordOfTheFish, it is generally assumed that the entries would be about Star Wars. This is a Star Wars forum here and the idea was to keep it theme oriented. While it is not specific to KOTOR like kotorfanmedia.com, it is preferrable that you have your entry in a Star Wars based theme.

where will the contests show up and how often are they

Bee Hoon

The contests will show up in this subforum (Tales from Javyar's Cantina) and the contest runs monthly :)

So... is this the end of Javyar's as we know it? Did Taris get bombed?
