According to our current poll on ZAM.com, more than 50 percent of our readers play two or more games at a time. Well, what if your character from one MMO decided to explore the world of another game? That's exactly what we're asking you to envision in our "Venture into Hyboria" Age of Conan contest, which kicks off today and runs throughout the week.
To enter, all we're asking you to do is visit this forum thread and write a short back story explaining how your MMO avatar made it to Hyboria. It can be serious, funny, or silly. If you want to write a novel, go for it! If you want to make it short, that's ok too! For example, maybe your Tarutaru in Final Fantasy XI conjured a portal in Windurst that led to Conan's realm, whether on purpose or by accident. Or perhaps your warrior in World of Warcraft felt the urge to go on an epic journey to find others like him who are well-versed in the art of war. You can be as creative and in-depth as you'd like with your story, as long as it tells the tale of your character's arrival in Hyboria.
Our prize list is huge and will include:
- 14 copies of Age of Conan
- 41 free subscriptions ranging from 30 days to 1 year
