of the Coast is pleased to announce that after a rigorous search through
nearly 11,000 one-page proposals, we have narrowed our search for a
new fantasy setting to eleven proposals. As of August 30, 2002, the
authors of all eleven proposals have been notified that they will move
on to the next stage of the search. Though we had originally planned
to pick only ten proposals, the high quality of those submitted compelled
us to slightly expand that number.
like to sincerely thank all those who submitted proposals. We regret
that we cannot, as we'd originally hoped, contact all the submittees
personally. Unfortunately, the sheer number of proposals made this impossible.
you submitted a proposal and have not been contacted, you will not be
contacted to tell you that you have not advanced to the next stage.
All those who have advanced have been contacted already.
creativity shown by those who submitted shows that the gaming industry
is alive and well. We're sure that some of the proposals we did not
choose will be picked up by other gaming companies and turned into exciting
settings that will stimulate and challenge the imagination.
