Hello people of MCME,

I just wanted to let everyone (or the people who look at this post) know that I need stories for my bookstore in Bree. I have already received one story from ryttyr, which is a great story, and would love to get many more. I will also be writing stories on my own so the store won't die out if you know what I mean.

How would one contribute? What kind of stories are you looking for? Must they be original? Or do you want works copied from Middle Earth?

To get your story in the bookstore write the story down and message it to @mapthor. The length is pretty irrelevant as long as it fits in a Minecraft book. However it has to be authentic which means:
- No items that would not exist in Middle-earth.
- No MCME player names.
- No conflicts with the known storylines.
(These were the rules of submitting a story back when the bookstore first opened but I don't know if they're still being followed).

I think they wants original works but @Finrod_Amandil once told me that there wouldn't be copyright issues if we were to copy from the original story so I guess it could be ok as long as it is server accurate. I.E takes place prior to Bilbo's 111th birthday and is a story that would make sense to put into print.

@mapthor do you have a way for ppl to submit their stories directly in game too? As in they write their story in game themselves and put it in a submission chest or something?
