The Elixir of Life: Taste if You DareMix them with spring water, the herbs of summer, winter and fall. Seasons unite in one cup, colored a black darker than charcoal yet lighter than air. Frayed string encompasses the molded mixture, petals of peonies floating atop the dark, vile liquid. With a stench stronger than a skunk, but as soothing as a rose, one touch to the skin will burn your heart and chill your mind.
It is the elixir of life, is it not? The gentleness of love; the sour taste of despair; the darkness of each night and the light of each day! The sun, the clouds and the seas combine. And with a sip that lasts a lifetime, you must decide: will you indulge in the uncertain drink? Or will it wither by your side?
Novel Title: Play or Die <- Although optional really, I'd really rather you did include this!
Author/Pen Name: Jaluna Rolik <- Optional to include on cover. If you don't, I can add it later anyway.
Description/Synopsis of novel (for inspiration): PowerFULL Online is a popular MMORPG around the world, with millions of players around the globe. It's not one of those fancy games with 3D graphics or VR, but it's charm still reaches the hearts of many, with a very open-ended system. However, something strange has happened. Things that happen in the game are beginning to affect the real world! Whether it's skills you normally didn't have except in the game becoming things you can do in real life or losing an arm IRL from fighting a boss online, worlds are clearly beginning to collide!
With this newfound magic and mayhem all around, will Player Killers become true murderers? Will evil take over the hearts of the masses? Or, can the valiant guild of misfits known as Amaranthine stop the madness from destroying us all?
My preferred colors/imagery/ideas: Probably contrasting colors, such as red and blue. Also a sword being used in the title somehow could be nifty.
All you have to do is make me a cover and comment a link to it. I may try giving a small gift to everyone, but I'm not sure yet? The one I like the most (yes, this is a bias contest) may or may not be used- it depends on the person I'd bugged on forums too. But whether used or not, you WILL get the prize stated earlier on. (Everyone gets love though. For helping me and being awesome.) I'll be accepting entries until OCTOBER 30th
*Try to put your name/credits on the cover too. It'd be wrong not to have credit for your work clearly, right?
*You only need to make a FRONT cover. Making a back or spine for it will not get you extra props. Sorry.
For inspiration also, here's the one I'd made years ago lol
