    So I have a request. I can do things like banners and other coding, but i seem to be having trouble with my Logs. not just the character ones (those are not written by me) but the general ones. Now Savanna has been more than gracious in editing and updating them and I appreciate her helping when she gets the time. So im not really looking for editing tips. Im more looking for someone or someones to read the logs and tell me if there is something you see consistent with what im doing wrong. So you dont have to edit more like writer training. In exchange ill help with codes, banners, whatever i can.

    Hurst I will look into it and see what I can lend a hand with, I am not really a writer but a voracious reader so perhaps I can help by saying what might feel "right-er" ? (hah!) anywhere (pages)you want me to have a look in general?

    Killervp said I should post some stuff here so here we go! (sorry for the mario reference)

    * Google-fu and other Research abilities: If it exists I can probably find it. I am a Law Student in real life and have had plenty of experience in research,
    * Translating: I am fluent in English and Spanish and have access to Japanese, Chinese, French, Latin and Arabic human translators.
    * Alpha Reader: Used to do a lot of alpha reading over on fictionpress and other similar sites over the years.
    * History and Martial Art knowledge: Have a question about martial arts or history (specially military history!) then I am your guy.
    * Chronic Insomnia: Awake for about 18-22 hours a day so I have time for just about anything.

    Looking for:

    Coding
    Picture editing

    Hope to help!

    The curse of being a GM is that you don't have anyone with which to gush about your game. The people who care most about what you're creating need to be kept in the dark by necessity, to avoid ruining the plot, and everyone else doesn't care about these obsessive details that I'm geeking out over ("Oh neat!"). Well, that's fine, my ego can handle it, but my story line can't be allowed to suffer.

    I'm looking for people who want to discuss the plots and stories of their campaigns in a group, using the group as a sounding board, and an "idea cloud". I'm going to create a game, and invite any GM who wants to participate (and isn't in a game already being discussed), and provide everyone with space to post the details of their game. Then we can post ideas, suggestions, and provide the feedback that is a vital (at least for me) part of the writing process.

    The first rule of "Plot Club":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/plot-club is you do not talk about "Plot Club":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/plot-club.

    AugustusGloop - please sign me up for the Plot Club. I am good at developing plots, especially for fantasy games. Most of my plots will fit any campaign with a bit of work.

    I would love to have a nice banner and background for my campaign "The Valdorian Age":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/valdorian-age-rising-power-on-the-frontier

    Anyone game to help me out? I am willing to trade for some of my plot lines that I have been working on. Or help with fleshing out NPCs, shops, etc.

    I also have a very nice spreadsheet for my fantasy campaign that covers just about anything that an adventurer could want (except for magic items - never made sense that there are "magic shops"). Items have a base price, then a below average, slightly above average and expensive price. There is some randomization of pricing. I would be willing to trade this for some 'serious' work on banners & background for my campaign.

    I should have specified. Just pm me, or post here. I'll monitor it and invite.

    Looking for combat writers. Right now all my combat is bullet pointed round by round style and I have been told that I should make it more cinematic. Although I have plenty of experience in fighting (extensive martial arts training, martial arts clubs founder, and working as a bouncer) I have no idea how to write it. Reference my post earlier for what I am decent at if I can assist anyone in anything.

    Hi,

    Newbie here...would love a "plot club" invite. I think I'm pretty strong on the idea front and I love collaboration. My OP campaign is pretty much brand new. The story is in its early stages.

    Hey Jaymes, what exactly are you requesting? Could you link to (or post) an example? I took a look at your most recent Adventure Log (not sure where else to look) for an example of what you're talking about and didn't see any bullet-point breakdown there. I did not get the impression that you were running a p-b-p game though. If you're still looking for assistance with combat writing, I may be able to help (For samples, see the "Good to be Evil" campaign: Forums > Current Story > Dreamscape 2). And I may have a favor that's right up your alley. PM me if you're interested.

    Actually I got one of my players to help me out with it. The issue was that I was just bullet pointing the combat based on how the combat went ( "Example":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/l5r-changing-history/adventure-log/session-13 ). I am still always willing to help out anyone with my skills listed and I am sure there will be things I need help with in the future sometime again.

    Howdy crew,

    I'd like to offer my hand at a few things. Plot Club sounds like my kinda place. However, I can also offer a lot as far as creative writing, so things like Jaymes issue with how to write out the combat in a fluid manner I think I'd be adept at. I also know my way around PS so image manipulation, banners, etc. and also video editing, but as mentioned before, that's more of a daunting task (would require quite a bit of tempting/ out-right bribery).

    Howdy Darkangl!

    What sort of work are you looking for? I'm always up for more creative writing for atmospheric purposes.

    I'm really only looking for a few things, maps (specifically City maps) and Character Art/Background Art.

    I'm always up for a trade, or if you have something I can really dig on, I'm up for lending a hand.

    Don't know if this is dead or not, but...
    Jaymes, I could help with your combat writing if you want. I tend to be a bit brutal, though. I like flash and gore.

    I don't know if anyone needs anything like this, but I handle strange ideas really well. If anyone needs help with unusual scenarios, creatures, stats, etc. I could be your man. My focus right now is dreams operating on a realistic plane, but I've done some things like using dimension door as an attack, universe collapse, 1800's technology opperating on a futuristic level, extrademensional organ harvesting, ... I've got a few others, but it gets a bit raunchy. Anyway, if you need weird/unique from the outline to the details, I'm your man.
