Looking for intros
« on: June 12, 2017, 03:57:24 pm »

Well, some people have been asking for a while, so us guys here at Masterwork are conceding. But we need some help to do this.
We need some help to write some introductions for each playable race, to pop up for everyone's happiness after you've made embark preparations.

This screen here, if you weren't quite sure what I'm talking about.

Now, this includes dwarves, orcs, succubi, kobolds, and humans. And no, I'm not going to just take whoever makes the first few bits. I want to see variety and creativity for each race. I would love to see a ton of them for each one. And if you get worried that showing up late means you can't possibly get yours implemented, don't worry: even if there's already an introduction for a race, we could add more, if we get enough submissions.
Now, submissions should be shorter than 200 words. The original intro is only around 100 words, just for comparison, and it is just a short little intro that most players probably fly past, but we aim to make this a bit more interesting.
Just as a quick example for dwarves...


So who feels like giving a bit more variety to this little part of the game?

Yesshhhhh we need more of the precioussss...

I mean yes we need several of these, hundreds, and doubters that we need it need not worry or apply, lol.  give us your best effort on a less than 200 word intro, and don't make it generic, make it race specific.  understand that there is only a few vars that can be called, these would be:
{local_large_predator}
{civ name:native translation or english translation} and
{group name:native translation or english translation}

but other than that you can write what you want, indicate these 5 variables if you want, and see how quickly we can add you as a contributor to the MDF Community!
