I've been toying with the idea of submitting a new character in the Atari Age Alternate Reality the City contest for quite some time. I've finally made my submission and my entry is in progress. The contest is unofficial and it began a few years ago so my submission is a bit late.

Got a dagger for 170 copper
Since my submission a few days ago I have not heard from the forum moderators regarding my entry. Hopefully somebody will take notice and perhaps award me a place as my entry progresses. I didn't want to flood the forum all at once so I'm going to track my progress with an entry every few days.

Check out my entry here.

About the contest:

The Alternate Reality the City contest is for fun. There is no prize awarded. Quote from the forum moderator, "The purpose of this competition is to have fun, share your experiences with others and test your skill at surviving in one of the greatest, most challenging, ground-breaking RPG games of the 20th century, Alternate Reality: The City for Atari 800. All players will receive a rank and posting of their highest character, so post your screenshots and participate!" The rules are that there will be absolutely no cheating and you may not use a back up your character to revive them or retry a situation. If your character dies you are done. You can roll a new character at any time and try again. Everything is on the honor system.
