You might know the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America as the presenters of the Nebula Awards, but that’s only part of what the organization does for its membership. Focused on promoting science fiction and fantasy, SFWA gives members a community of other creatives, opportunities to network, and access to resources like grievance committees and Amazon support. Prompted by its membership’s desire to extend the organization across new mediums, it now does all that for game writers too. For the first time in the SFWA’s 50-plus-year history, the organization started accepting game writers at the beginning of this month.

“Nowadays, game writing is as valid a form of storytelling as storytelling in the form of stories or novels,” says SFWA President Cat Rambo. “We wanted to acknowledge that.”

It doesn’t end with game writers, though. Rambo says that SFWA is also making attempts to adjust to a changing publishing landscape. As more publishing skews independent and small press-oriented, SFWA is making efforts to bring those members into the fold and give them resources as they begin to tell their stories in new ways.

“You’re also getting more and more people that are working in multiple mediums,” says Rambo. “You’re getting writers that are working not just in short stories, but they want to do graphic novels or work with games. You’re getting a lot of writers that are taking ownership of their property and saying to themselves, ‘Okay, I wrote a novel in this world, what else can I do in it?’”

Because the initiative is still quite new to SFWA, the qualifications are still in flux and the resources for game writers are still developing. Rambo says that overall, feedback on the initiative has been positive and that many are excited for the new opportunity, but that a few tweaks to the criteria are in order – specifically those that currently rule out video game writers, like a stipulation that writers can’t be salaried or qualify with projects that credit more than two writers.

It’s still early days for game writers in SFWA, but early signs are promising, and as resources for writers in new mediums expand, it’s clear that game writers are very much a part of the SFF world. The ability to join SFWA just makes it official, and before long, it might even result in a new Nebula Award.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

Back in September, a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak listed 10 characters allegedly coming to the new roster. At the time we ranked, putting one possible addition from the Fire Emblem universe near the bottom of our list, but based on a compelling new argument it may be time to rethink that ranking.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.
