I like the picture too.

So far for the thread we'll have the map, this, and the first chapter. Just gotta wait for Moon or Onion.

Who's Onion?
Ha, I kid. I think I've called Orion Onion once or twice myself.


This looks promising. I like it a lot, if that means anything. Oh, and on an unrelated note, where/how do you get your backgrounds, Chillz?

Your backgrounds. Remove the text and the characters and you have a background. It looks like you do them with the gradient tool.

Cool, now just add six more pieces that length and we can have ourselves a first chapter.

eeyup. Gradiant tool. Just helps a picture pop.

I was thinking that there's a 500-ish word opening for each main character and how they make their way to the main city.

I don't mean to completely ruin it, but.

Acmed, you wanted dragons and that isn't Dragons. Sure I could tie it into something, but it's not really floatin' my boat. Good for a intro for a character, but not first chapter.

I'll agree to the small-ish word opening for each main character and how they get to the castle, etc.

Also, peasant, warrior, and prince? Yes, way too cliche. We totes have to have a female present ^-^
I'm all for a warrior, but I don't think a prince belongs. Peasant is meh-ish. But I'd rather have some other lowly person than a plain peasant.

Backtracking to Chillz shizz, your opening doesn't have a medieval ring to it, except for the armor.

Anyways. If we only have a select amount of writers, please don't write about yourself. You're trying to write in a third-person type thing. So don't infuse your persona into a character completely. Sure, give them a few traits but not exactly like you, because you'll have to write for multiple people.


This is beginning to resemble all of the other AG stories, where you enter and you actually write for yourself. That's just how I see it with having so many writers. I'm also starting to see just how unorganized this really is... good thing this is the back stage, because if this was official it would have no hope of making an impact.

How about a Miner? This is the Iron Age supposedly, so there's bound to be one.

Good thing we kept to the shadows then.

Just an idea but, why don't we have a copy of the map that contains the different things that have happened, a bit like a synopsis of the story up until now?
