Big ol' BUMP

There are lots of talented writers out there and I need books for loot drops! No toolset knowledge needed, just send your manuscript exactly as you want it written (so proof read and spell check please) to the Hala Team account.

Also, if you already have a book available (its in a store or something) and you don't mind it being dropped in random loot, let me know.

Thanks

To answer some questions I've received privately but I'm sure others have:

Pretty much anything your character would IC'ly write about, fiction or non-fiction, is acceptable with a few exceptions.

No spoilers (such as crafting recipes).

Libel against another PC won't be accepted.

We won't accept anything that might infringe on someones copyright. For example Zombie has submitted his Grovely Tales and I intend to have Dagny do some writing based on the old Norse eddas; both of which are ok because they are copy right free. Rewriting a modern song, even if it fits in with the setting, probably would not be accepted.

Non-fiction should be related to Ysgardian or Planar lore. Books on most of the Gods worshiped by PCs are acceptable as well, though please refrain from writing lore based in other CoPaP worlds. For example, even though Andrinor has been said to reside in Ysgard according to Avlis lore, this particular deity is Avlis's IP and we have no right to create or accept new lore for him. On the other hand, standard DnD gods recognized on other worlds, such as Corellon Larethian and Gruumsh, are fair game.

Are we still looking for book content for IG books? =)

Silly question....

Is there a word limit? Or preferred length?

There is no real word limit, but if it gets too long, split it into volumes :)

I'm going to offer a slightly varied theme on this (inspired by something recently offered on Avlis, so credit where it's due)

For the next month, I will accept and create books for any that wish to write them, but these won't go into the loot drops and you will only receive up to 3 copies of them to hand out as you so wish.

The content can be anything you want (outside of FOIG information such as crafting recipies and non IC references). Sentimental stories, erotic adventures, last weeks shopping list - anything you like, since the only ones to see them (other than myself and other nosy DM's while in the client) will be you and the people you hand them out to.

The books will also be marked plot so remain on you all the while.

Send the body of text to me here and if you're after a particular book appearance, let me know that too, otherwise you get my best judgement on it.

You have one month, starting from this post.

As an addendum to the above, while I'm not going to put a specified limit on the number of books, please remember that your PC has to be able to carry 3 sets of each book, so lets keep it reasonable.

Just make a whole stack of the dirty mags :D I have seen a few floating around and the description is funny. You know creepers like Zombie would collect those sorts of things.

Ok, If extend this until close of play Sunday 13th April, will that give those of you interested enough time?

Very unlikely I'm afraid, in my case. :( The rest of this month is going to suck as bad as last month as far as free time is concerned, and it takes me forever to write anything decent (Hence Lexy's silence in his journal thread).
