Creative writers wanted!

Postby kingdoms_game » Sun May 27, 2012 5:03 am

Evening all!

Myself and a small group of dedicated indie game developers are building an online RPG. We want the game to have huge focus on story and an immersive game world rather than focusing on graphics.

What we need from you is the starting background story for the world as well as the bios of the various inhabitants.

If you'd like to get involved and get your name on what is potentially a huge and fantastic project please email us at: get-involved@kingdoms-game.org

I'd very much like to get an idea of your imagination and creative writing so for a little tester I'd like you to give me a trial.

The world of Kingdoms is based around 1000 BC (though does not necessarily have to be Earth, just the period of Human history). However, I'd like the world to be inhabited by a number of races and established civilizations. Please send me a short bio of one of these races. Including their history, their character traits and a description of their physical appearance. Please try and avoid the standard species (Elf, Orc, Dwarf etc) though of course you can take inspiration from them.

If that's not your cup of tea, Kingdoms will be divided into continents. If you like, you could describe a continent and its landscape. The shape, boundaries and defining features. It can be as big as you like as the game we are planning will be huge.

Thanks for your time all!

I hope to hear from many of you!

I'll give this a try.

Shmeti (Coming from the Czech word Smeti, meaning garbage)

The Shmeti were born when a curious scientist mixed toxic waste, human waste and snail slime together and poured the concoction into the waters of the sewer. Days later, green, slimy creatures emerged from the sewer and wreaked havoc upon a village that's not to be named. They moved all over the world, seeking a good home. The Shmeti are hated and ridiculed by the regular townspeople. These creatures are garbage dwellers. Their regular habitats are sewers, garbage cans, garbage trucks and the junkyard. The smell of the Shmeti are absolutely revolting. They often use the smell to keep people away from them. Although they are ridiculed, they don't care and take pride in their filthy ways.

The Shmeti are very thin creatures that you can almost see their bones. Their skin is a translucent dark green with light green slime almost always dripping down their skin. Their hands and feet are sharp talons they rarely use unless someone dares to come close to them. Their legs bend forwards and their arms are in regular place. Their head is usually triangular shaped with yellow beady eyes like a snake, two sockets for a nose and a filthy mouth with gums dark red and green, yellow and brown sharp teeth.

The Shmeti either hate everyone or are scared of everyone, depending on their race. If they find someone they hate, they bare their fangs and go back into hiding, if they find someone they're scared of, they just hide. The Shmeti are very fast and if their not in their garbage pile, then they're running around. If they can avoid a fight, they will and run off, but if they have to, they'll try and distracted the enemy and run off unless absolutely neccesary for a head-on fight.

Lovely! haha. Just the sort of thing we're after. They'll be added to the races list, though garbage truck will be replaced with garbage wagon ;-)

Keep em coming guys! I'll put a link up to any work in progress asap!
