PostSubject: Kay NIner - Advertising/Story writing app   Mon Apr 02, 2012 6:00 am

A clock ticks slowly in the darkness, its rhythmic beating matching the striking of the keys on the keyboard as you type your password for the hundredth time, a million thoughts running wild in your mind; why is it so dark? What time is it? is that gum I feel stuck to my shoe?
A flash of red fills the screen, lighting up part of your face in the gloom. A soft chime sound pierces the deafening silence like a gunshot as something flashes across your screen, a text bubble.
Your eyes slowly adjust to the new light as you start to make out the words on the screen.
Wrong password. Try again

Sighing, your fingers mash the keyboard again, typing out another forgotten password. Finishing, your finger hovers hopefully over the enter key. one more wrong password and your locked out for an hour, an hour you cannot spare. There is much work to be done.
The clock strikes midnight as the finger descends onto the key. You watch on with anticipation as seconds tick by, each one feeling like a hour.
Welcome
Success! a sigh escapes your mouth as your own computer lets you in. Time to get to work! what a productive day this will be!

As the internet brings up yet another page of ponies, you begin to remember why you got up so early. This isn't the time for Pinkie Pie's antics, there is work to be done!
The clock strikes 3 am as you navigate your way to the Immolation forum.
"Whats this?" your dry raspy voice echos around your empty room. reaching for the UN-opened can of soda on your table, you click on the small link that drew your attention.
"Kay Nine-ar? the dry rasp washing away as you chug the soda. "Hmm... A new writer perhaps? lets see"
Throwing the empty can over your shoulder and into the trash can behind you, you begin to read the post.
"What is this crap?" hundreds of spelling mistakes fill the page as you read on. "this guy is supposed to be a writer? Not for my game he's not!"
The page closes as you move on to more important things, like discovering a way to replicate Pinkie Physics in the real world.




So yeah. I dont really have any art to show you atm, I'm waiting for my new tablet to get here from overseas, so writing is all I have atm.
I would be able to create advertising posters/images for the game, as well as generate hype for the game. so I guess I'm Public Relations? Anyway, Neveda told me to drop by and offer my services if you need them. cheers!

(my humor comes out)

I am one of those who you might consider "public" but I'm afraid what constitutes the of public this group exists as a tight but small group, when one compares this to the standard societal definition, we can say the developers have no public interface.
(screw this paragraph)

(my humor was crushed beneath my desire for poetic intricacies and precision)

Alrighty, you're certainly literate, and quite good at that. I'm planning on having the whole dev team contribute ideas to the story, whilst Neveda gets the fun job of writing them. I'll leave him to judge your portion of writing there - as for the PR stuff, I'm quite excited. However, I will need to see some of your work before I can make any determination. Do you have any past work that exemplifies your current skill level? Or are we gonna have to wait for your tablet to arrive before you grace me with art?

About the only thing on the writing bit that I can truly say right now is that it would be nice to have a small writing team. People with similar and synergistic skills to my own. At this point I'm not sure if we'll need one, but there will be a point where I will need help. I am good a concept, worldbuilding, designing culture, and plot. Big picture stuff. I can do writing specific events, and histories, and characters, and dialogue, but I'm not as good at it.

Well you could check out my DA page (kayniner.deviantart.com) for some of my wallpapers check the scrapbook for a few of the scrap banners I've made for my brony gaming clan. As for Immolation related material... I guess you'll have to wait.

@Neveda: I can do character building and dialogue if you need.

Yeah, we've actually already discussed you. Before you even made an account. He knows about firefall and the Herd and about your deviant art page. I actually wanted him to see "Niners Nine" but the thread is only view able by members, and I didn't feel like downloading them and uploading them to a place where he could see them.
Also, it's not that I need someone to do character building and dialog for me. I just need support. I don't know how having a writing team will work so that's a thing we need to figure out when it happens. That's only the sort of thing we can figure out when we all have a pretty good feel for each others abilities.

Righty-o.
The dA was a bit confusing, as to what you drew from scratch and from what you edited - and what you draw doesn't have to be related to the game. Just a display of your skillset.

all of the stuff in my dA is edited, not drawn from scratch. I dont have access to a scanner atm so I cant really show my free-hand skillset till my tablet gets here (which will be a while).

It's okay, I'll be patient.
In the meantime we can spam the image boards.

Cool.
I can put together a few images posters or banners for Immolation while I wait for the tablet. (I really want this tablet... Cintiq 12ux.)

Woah, does that have the screen in the tablet? That's much fancier than my intuos. Tell me how you enjoy it once it ships.

The testing has commenced!
Piedoom, I'll keep you updated.
Also, Niner, whenever your ready, could you show us some of your hand drawn art?

I'm sure Neveda has kept you updated about Jack Star, as for my art, I've up loaded two tablet drawn pics to my deviantart page. Please note that my editing skills are better than my hand drawn art. If I was accepted as the advertising person, I would be editing, not hand drawing. Unless my skills increase that is.

Truthfully we need more of an advertiser or such that than a concept or hand drawn artist.
Well, when I say advertiser, I mean graphic person thing- we don't really need adverting at the moment. But I'm sure if we get popular enough some ads would be cool.
As for the art, it's not bad, but it's nothing to brag about to be frank.
I'll be discussing with the rest of the guys later and hopefully we'll have some sort of verdict. I'll bother Neveda for a full synopsis of your writing talents.

The test is still in progress and likely will continue to be so for a while. When I have more time on my hands I'll get you a transcript and append my thoughts to it.

Like I said, my hand drawn isn't the best. I'm still getting used to my new toy.
