    I'm one of the assistant writers for the Ryuu Online project. Plz contact me. Our head writer says we need about two more writers.

    SKYPE morfiction.

    We need lots of material!

    Here's what we got so far.

    An MMO is a massively multiplayer online game, mostly RPGs.

    After spending about 5 years working with game development teams, Michael, I can tell you that presentation in advertisement helps a lot. You tell us that you're the assistant writer, yet you spell 'please' incorrectly. Do you see what I mean?

    I began 3D modeling when I was entered into my teens. I'm now 18. I've been featured on a podcast about game development, too. If you are curious about my background you can PM me.

    Surely you understand my point on presentation? Since I am on this thread I will answer your question from the PM:

    I didn't ask to be Pm'd, I merely suggested. I was on the podcast via read email. I gave industry professionals a link to my portfolio and they critiqued it, saying it was very good for my age. I no longer have the 3D Models on the site. In fact, the site is no longer being paid for.

    That doesn't sound quite the same as being 'featured on a podcast about game development'. I'm not sure what you guys are talking about via private messaging, but those words sound misleading.

    Michael, can you give us more information, or would you prefer that people who are interested only contact you on skype? What kind of qualifications are you looking for besides 16+?

    For starters...

    Think about the overall teirs that we need:
    [10:00:25 AM] head writer: World story
    [10:00:30 AM] head writer: Major cities
    [10:00:37 AM] head writer: empires
    [10:00:43 AM] head writer: factions
    [10:00:48 AM] head writer: races
    [10:01:03 AM] head writer: major characters
    warring empires
    [10:01:22 AM] head writer: heck... dragon story

    These are the beginnings of what were suggested to me.

    Pretty much lore is an issue. We have a summary, a Game Development Document, and that's it. I've written material. Some of it has been vetoed.

    I'm assuming you're already aware there's a "Ryuu–the Game®" …complete with registered trademark? And that it has an online version? Just asking.

    Surely, Michael, before embarking on such an endeavor, your team would have searched extensively for a name without trademark?

    @Johnny: Those words are misleading, indeed. I was not featured on the podcast as an industry insider, but my work received praise via portfolio examination. This roughly 3 years ago, I believe. I was 15, I think. The podcast is called Games Industry Mentor. The host, Aaron Canaday, is an environment artist at Bioware.

    @Xanados: I don't seek to reduce the value in your work (I've not seen it anyway), but I think it's fair to say that you have exaggerated its significance - especially considering the thread starter seeks writers. Also, I'm sure it'd be more polite to respond to a private message via private message, rather than displaying the conversation for all the forum to see. If you intended to bring the discussion back into the forum, I'm not sure why you suggested private messaging in the first place.

    As for the topic: I'll be the first to say what I'm sure others are thinking - this doesn't sound legit at the moment. There doesn't seem to be much forethought, so what can writers hope to get out of the experience? My instinct is telling me 'nothing', but it's an honest query.

    I'm having my doubts as well and I'm looking at the project from the inside. I could say it would be an interesting experience, a unique one.
