    Hey, I'd like to request map lore for my story.

    Map Type: Medieval
    Link to Map Thread: While technically a map thread, this isn't anything grand, so I will provide additional information about the map/lore via P.M to the person who takes my request.
    Lore Type: Map Lore
    Lore Format: Third person.
    Additional Information: There are two factors that play a vital role in the lore behind this map: Magic usage, and technological level. I'll begin with magical usage: Magic isn't wielded freely, at least not in these desert lands of Al'Tujero (pronounced, all-too-share-o). In fact, it is frowned upon. Those who wield it are seen as enemies to the country, and the Council of Al'Tujero, ruling in the absence of Lord Lexiz (lex-is), banish these people from the country for the rest of their lives.

    Technology is different also. Al'Tujero is not a technological country -- it farms, it survives, it has a small military of untrained soldiers. There is no time for technological advancements in a desert, especially an extremely hot one on the brink of possible war. Their military wield scimitars and have very weak armor (in truth, they armor is consisted of leather and cloth). Most of their soldiers are on foot, but some ride camels. Camel carriages are a common form of transportation in Al'Tujero.

    Request Template

    Map Type: (Medieval, Warcraft, etc.)
    Link to Map Thread: (If you have one, if not fill in a little bit of information here about the map.)
    Lore Type: (Hero Lore, Map Lore, etc.)
    Lore Format: (First-person story-telling, SECOND PERSON STORY-TELLING, third-person story-telling.)
    Additional Information: (Any extra info that you think we'll need.)

    I seriously like the idea of it.
    C'mon, second person anyone?
    The second-person narrative is a narrative mode in which the protagonist or another main character is referred to by second-person personal pronouns and other kinds of addressing forms, for example the English second-person pronoun "you". For example,
    You are not the kind of guy who would be at a place like this at this time of the morning. But here you are, and you cannot say that the terrain is entirely unfamiliar, although the details are fuzzy. —Opening lines of Jay McInerney's Bright Lights, Big City
    Also second person narrative:
    http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/An_Egg (There's a cinematic that UndeadImmortal made for this)
    Progress on Austin Groves' Request: Act 3 is undergoing, and Epilogue is near to come

    Glad you like it! Can't wait to play your game, it's sounds SO COOL!

    @Planking Wolf, What a wonderful idea, I've seen many great stories told in second person I added it to our template :)

    If it's alright with Zzone, sure.

    Do you have any examples of your work? I don't think it's completely necessary but it can give us an idea. And what is your favorite type of writing?

    What sorts of examples are you looking for? I mean, besides WC3 stuff I've got short stories and lore from tabletop games I've GMed and other stuff too.
    I generally write serious material and I tend to like what I'm told are somewhat dark settings, but I'm fairly flexible.

    I'm all up for new members :) So you would say that your work is Dark as in hopeless settings? Apocalyptic settings? And any examples would be great :)

    EDIT: ROFL xD I saw that and Lolaxis is doing a fine job, in fact dude, you can recruit people if you feel like it, just send me a PM and I will add them next time I get on :) always keeping this thread active ;) what would I do without you :grin:

    Any short story or GM lore will be fine. We are basically looking for your grammar and other writing skills.

    Make sure it's not too lengthy =), we do have to read it.

    EDIT: Posted a minute or less after Zzone ... =) that doesn't happen often.

    I suppose I occasionally do a hopeless setting, but usually not. Typically I just write things gritty and realistic (Which is not to say non-fantasy) and detailed and without any unambiguous heroes.

    While I have written apocalyptic stuff before, it's generally not my favorite genre.

    On the grammar thing, if you have some trouble we can edit it, no biggie in fact Lolaxis has edited me already ;) My grammar get's screwy when I write fast :)

    @Melth, and you don't have to provide an example if you don't want to I trust your ability and we go over each others work before we finish it anyway :) You have been added to our roster.
