So I've seen quite a few pieces using religious/prophetic/absolution themes so I thought it would be a good idea for a comp, plus i've seen the same thread advertised from S+L for days, its bugging me. So here it is, the Nostradamus comp, well we all know who he is and here are the rules.

1. Your piece must be prophesying something, he covered deaths, countries, wars, places and practically everything. If you wish to emulate his style go ahead.

2. He usually kept each prophecy to around 4-8 lines so im not expecting much. I do want new pieces for this too, its not hard.

3. 9 entrants if I can get 9

4. Due date set when the 9 is filled.


1. The Hurt Within (Steve)
2. Something_Vague (Matt)
3. Retribution (James)
4. Circular.Parade (Mat)
5. ScouserTommy (Ro)
6. CJW (Chris)
7. mcmeddesr (Stephen)
8. pe_666 (Peter)
9. Dæmönika (Mike)

I'll try to write something for this, but I don't yet want to say "in" just in case I find I can't come up with the goods!
So I guess that's kinduva provisional, conditional "in", for me. Maybe!

I'd like to play. I'll give it a shot, at least.

It's Chris, and would we need a title?

so no more then 8 lines



Thats not a rule, Nostradamus used to write in Quatrains, usually. And he rarely went over 8 lines, so its a kinda given, if you wanna go over by all means. Matt's piece and mine are short.

^I'm guessing it's not 'needed', anyway. I'm not gonna use one, 'cause after all it is the Nostradamus comp and well...I'm guessing there'd be points deducted, so to speak, if it's not very 'Nostradamus'.

I'd like to be a part of this, seeing as there is still room left. Can I add also that as the vast majority of you will be writing in English, I'd imagine you could do it without rhyming. As for people asking about titles, he never wrote any quatrains for the Centuries XI and on, so maybe whoever will be receiving these "prophecies" can order them as 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on for Century XI.

Ok, so the roster is filled, but synth you might aswell write a piece anyway, 'cause i sense i'm gonna need it. The due date for this is a week from now, work the date out yourselves.

This isn't dead, sorry for the delay, I went to Israel.
