Below are a few notes on plagiarism. Please review the following guidelines before submitting your entry to ensure that you are not in violation of any of them. SUBMITTING A PLAGIARIZED ENTRY IN THE STORY CONTEST MANDATES A "SERIOUS OTHER CRIMES" JAILING AND LIFETIME REVELS TO RICHES AND STORY CONTEST BAN:

1. Submitting someone else's work other than your own is extremely serious. Not only is plagiarizing unethical and immoral, it is grounds for expulsion from many colleges or universities and is grounds for termination of employment at any writing or publishing firm.
KRU Interactive must take a very serious position on plagiarism. Since KRU Interactive becomes a publisher of your work, archons must endeavor to prevent the publishing of plagiarized material. Stealing someone else's work can result in financial loss to the publisher and violator.
By entering into this story contest, you are certifying that your entry is your own original work and that you own all rights to it. You also certify that, if the work does not belong to you, it may result in not only in-game penalties from KRU Interactive, but in your liability for damages outside of KRU Interactive as allowed by laws pertaining to copyright infringement. You further certify that you are allowing KRU Interactive to publish your work electronically on Nexus and KRU Interactive's web site, thus placing your work into the public domain.

2. Please refer to law 91 on the Law board as posted by Cerulean and consider it an incorporation herein and made a part hereof.

3. Any party who purchases a story will be jailed for "Serious Other Crimes" and banned from participating in the Story Contest. This is a form of plagiarism. Additionally, the party who sold the story will be subject to the same punishment. If you obtained Ee San or any other title by submitting a plagiarized or purchased story and are caught, you will be completely stripped of that title.

4. If any of the above rules are broken, it will result in the disqualification of your post, a possible ban from future Revels to Riches or Story Contests, and possible justice consequences.

If you have any inquiries about these rules or believe you have evidence or knowledge of a breach of guidelines by any party, please contact Archons Brunhilde or Latya via n-mail.

Thank you, and enjoy the Story Contest.
