PostSubject: 2nd Scholarly Pursuit Sign Up   Tue Aug 26, 2014 3:01 pm

My fellow Scholars,

It is with great happiness I announce to you, the opening of The 2nd Scholarly Pursuit, a competition for scholars of the combine with a Grand Prize of 10m Credits (subject to increase with sponsorship). I believe that this is truly an opportunity for you all to show how well your work should be received amongst your peers and being rewarded for it. I will outline the Pursuits rules:


- Minimum of 2000 Words
- Any IC subject within the SWC Universe including Philosophy, Military Tactics, Social and Economic Culture, History, Geology, Technology, Medicine etc etc
- Report style writing preferred to RP style.
- Facts are only as good as the conclusions you yourself draw from them. Please don't just write a wiki entry, we want personal opinion, conclusions, advocacy etc.
- Timeframes including start date and deadline to be announced.
- Sign up on The Scholars Guild site at scholarsguild.forumotion.co.uk

Any questions, please DM me or drop by on IRC at #scholarsguild

Balance guide you all,

Rennek

So pleased that the Guild is once again spurring academic investigation into many of the unanswered questions of the galaxy. Count me in.

I think for this year's Pursuit, I'll finally publish some of the results of the investigation I've undertaken on the Metamorphosis Virus, a subject that has affected me personally on more than one occasion. There is definitely more than meets the eye on this subject.

I plan to compete again this year, should I find time to put something together worth the Guild's time.

I am going back and forth between "How Jawa religion and shaman culture aid in studying Jawa/ Tusken origins" or "Using the faceoff between Bothan Media Service and the Mindabaal League to model impacts an implications of Econarchy for galactic politics"

I will compete for the first time. This seems like a interesting and entertaining challenge.

I see there will be alot of scientific subjects.
Unfortunantely I have no such experience in fields similar to those.

I plan on writing about my memoirs from a life in conflict.
Hopefully something intelligent will surface from that.

With this, I wish you all best of luck.
It is an honour writing alongside people as yourself.

Welcome back Paul, Torc and Belloq, great to see you taking part again and welcome Zrosh!

Zrosh, just bear in mind if you are writing memoirs, I would try to make them report style writing, rather than RP style, as this is important. The writing should be with a view to making conclusions, suggestions, posing questions for other scholars who may read the work etc.

Otherwise, good luck, I look forward to reading your submission.

To make you all aware, the prizes have already increased slightly, please spread the word about the Pursuit to encourage others to join.

I too wish to sign up. I will do something on geology. I consider myself skilled in it as I've gathered detailed reports on several planets via my job as a prospector.

I have a report planned that would probably be filed under 'medicine'. I will enter it if it is completed on time and has a satisfactory word count. If not I will just submit it in the appropriate room.

Excellent news, welcome all. Be aware the prize pool has now been increased, check the prizes thread for more information. This is due to securing some sponsorship for the pursuit.

Hello, this is the Quarrenoghri calling.

Would like to sign up for the 2nd Scholarly pursuit with a paper on:

The current state of Nar Shaddaa, which has recently been abandoned by the departed Smugglers Guild and is now without a governing body. Would like to also summarize the known activities of the Smugglers Guild in the same paper.

Very excited about this!

Ever sincerely yours,

Quarrenoghri Daehd Moroz

Hello,

I've just registered. I'm going to write an article for the cultural section on the Galactic Museum.

Now, if only I could orientate myself and understand where I must deliver the papers... ;-)

So it has become clear that a number of people have dropped out here.

In order to combat this with the 3rd instalment of the Pursuit, there will be an entrance fee next time. It shall be a nominal amount purely as a deterrent to committing and then dropping out for whatever reason. I look forward to the pieces of work still to be submitted and thank you.

Unfortunately I was one of those who dropped out. My project is half finished (And RL took over with larger projects from college). However I will attempt to finish it and submit as a normal piece over the species known as Ewoks.
