No Mutants Allowed Brotherhood of Steel Writing Contest
When Bethesda released a developer diary for Fallout 3 describing the background events leading up to persistent Brotherhood activity in war-torn Washington D.C., opinions on the piece ranged from applauding to outrage. Because of this, the folks over at No Mutants Allowed have decided to allow fans to come up with their own versions of how and why the Brotherhood are up to what they are in Fallout 3.
“Your assignment is to write your own version of this story, to tell it the way you would want it to be told, to set the Brotherhood up for the game you would want to play.
Your entry must be centered on the premise that the Brotherhood of Steel, or some group using their name and trappings, are operating on the East Coast. Who are they? What do they represent? What’s their history, what state do we find them in, what’s their agenda? We’re looking for stories that are ambitious, well-considered, well-written, consistent and believable.
All surrounding details are mutable. You can but do not have to refer to other aspects of the setting and plot of Fallout 3 that have been revealed or hinted at, or try to guess at undisclosed plot points. You can frame your piece however you like, but don’t forget about the content.
The judges will pick the best entries based on style, substance, and legacy and the winner who wrote the best story will be awarded a poster-sized print of any one art piece by renowned fan artist Defonten: City Ruins, Cafe of Broken Dreams or Brand New Reno.
