Divided World of Idumea
I'm developing a roleplaying board game and I'm in a serious need of help. Me my self, I'm not too much of writer for longer stories. This is why I need You!
The world of Idumea is gray and empty as it is now. Each world needs stories of it's own. Each world needs colors. Each world needs Life on it's surface. This is why I need You!
About the stories when in-game:
There will be main story and hopefully MANY and again MANY side stories to make the world as immersive as possible. In roleplaying genre the possibility of making choices which affect to the story is EXTREMELY important. In the final product there will be many different endings to one story. If writing an interactive story sounds too challenging You may write normal story also. I/We take care of the interactivity here OR You ppl as an online community can expand each other's stories.
-Main story [I will give you a starting point and some backgrounds. From that point on You are free to create a story You see fit. Of course there can be only one main story so think this part as a "writing competition" ;) Never the less DO NOT forget the interactivity element! Your story might still end up being one string in this gigantic web!]
-Character profiles [Create vivid personalities, characters and biographies. World without ppl in it is pretty boring. Single characters might also be a source of stories!]
-Side stories [God gave us freedom to choose what ever we want. I will not take that freedom away from You!]
-World lore and history
I will provide any information about the world I've got to give.
