Best of luck!
That would be canon correctness wouldn’t it? We’re not into artillery here!
Sounds like a good contest, I look forward to reading the eventual winners.
@moglet, good catch! I always have a laugh when people substitute ‘cannon’ for ‘canon.’ We all know that wizards and witches don’t need gunpowder to create loud noises, smokes and explosions.
You are correct…no artillery, please. (we’re sorry that mistake slipped by all of us) We also ask that you not send any cursed items with your entry, such as hats, necklaces, etc.
