There's actually a surprising amount of interest! In broad terms, I'm ready to write out about 2 chapters worth of material every week (editing last week's script counts as 1/2 of a chapter)...so the more scripts I'm writing, the slower it will go for each individual project. However, a script probably takes three times as long to make into a game as it does to write up, so - on balance - I should be able to stay ahead of the curve. @Von Ithipathachai I looked at some of the work you have, and it's really impressive. Honestly, you've already done the majority of the legwork in terms of broad design; it's just a matter of entering all that data into a level editor. If you spend a month practicing how to event, I bet you could get things done relatively fast As for your support conversations, all I need is a list of the pairs plus a blurb on each character and whether you want it to end with romance. It should be simple enough to dream up a few story bits.
Hi all, I'm a somewhat frustrated screenwriter looking to try her hand at game writing, and this seems like the right corner of the internet to do that. The Fire Emblem community is incredibly passionate, but one of the most common complaints about these games is that the text boxes are long/exposition heavy, dialog sounds stilted, characters fail to grow, and interesting plot threads are introduced and then immediately dropped. This isn't because people are "bad" at writing, it's because they don't understand that storycraft is its own art-form which requires its own skillset. My goal here isn't to breathe life into some "epic" I've been dreaming up since I rode tricycles; it's to help other people build scripts and stories worthy of the countless hours they're spending on custom classes, new sprites, and revamped weapon systems. So, if you're the kind of person who loves building maps but never knows what to do with the text boxes, give me a shout. I have writing samples of varying size and genre, and I really do want to write your scripts. <3
Greetings all! I am a writer looking to collaborate in a serious way with people in the FE fan-hacking community. My assumption is that several of you are very good on the technical side but not really adept when it comes to story, dialog, and character arcs. I'm the opposite...passionately interested in storycraft but woefully inadequate when it comes to making things look good and play well. Attached is a writing sample - my background is screenwriting, so I hope the format is acceptable (we can work on that). This isn't a pitch for a game; its just a demonstration that I can generate decent script pages within a decent time limit (in this case, 12 hours) Please get back to me with questions, feedback, ongoing projects, etc. Ta <3 FE sample script.pdf
