The Backstory Round Winners Announced

Once again it’s that time of the week. Sadly another round has come to a close, the competition has been fierce but today the Backstory Round winners were announced.


With so many entries it’s no surprise that it’s taken so long for the judges to reach a decision. I don’t envy them or the people who had to condense their whole character’s life story into such a small document. But somehow everyone managed to do it and almost nobody got hurt in the process. 😉

Due to the size of each entry I’m going to link directly to each winners post on the forums unlike previous rounds where I’ve posted images here.

Sharanowski won the Funcom prize with her diary entry which you can find here

The Horseman Resources chose Frod54 who told us about his time with the Templars. You can find his entry here

Panopticon went for  DesolateDolly who takes us on a trip to the morgue. You can read it here

Cerberus Solutions picked Evenhand who has a letter from KG herself here

-Legacy- chose MKUltra reminisces about their apartment and some very fuzzy memories. You can read it here

Congratulations to all the winners and if you want to read more of the entries the team over at TSW-RP have put all the entries into one document for easy reading here

This month we get some new shoes to add to our collection. But don’t worry, these aren’t just any shoes. They have a purple glow to them to make sure that the Filth can see you even in the darkest depths of Tokyo.

You can get them now by logging into the game and going to the Claim Items Tab. Not in-game? Don’t worry you can access the store online and the shoes will be waiting for you when you *ahem* Boot Up the game. Just head here and log in then follow the same steps you would in-game.
