  • Lovecraft Country StoryBuilders Sought

    Folks,

    As you may have already seen, we're developing a Lovecraft Country game for release next year. (See http://www.skotos.net/about/pr/08272002.html.)

    Though we've already got a great team of volunteers working on the game, we're looking for a couple more, to make sure we have sufficient critical mass of developers.

    We're looking in particular for people who will:
    * Comment and brainstorm on game design
    * Help fill out historical details
    * Help build the actual rooms for the game

    We'll also have a real need for StoryCoders in the very near future.

    So, if you're a current Skotos player and you're interested in Lovecraft and you'd like to participate in building a new game, drop me a line at shannona@skotos.net with the subject "LOVECRAFT DESIGN".

    Include in your mail:

    --
    Your Background in Online Games (including ours).

    Your Background in Lovecraft and Horror.

    Your Background in Design, Development, or Engineering.

    Why You're Super Enthusiastic about the Project.
    --

    No guarantees we'll select everyone, but I'll read through all the mail and let you know quickly.

    You know I might just have to drop you a line. I am a big Lovecraft fan, and I have been told I run a very nice game of it.. On that note, for information you can use, the nice people at chaosium did a lot of work to put together a section of the Call of cthulhu book called utilities (I think 4th edition and later have what I am about to name) There are 3 sections in there anyone working on the game may want to use, they are timelines of events taken from history, they are not fictional game details, but things that are fact, or may have been thought to be fact at the time. The names of the 3 sections are: Disasters,Natural and Man-made/Events Occult,criminal & Futurist/A Hundred years & More.
    these can be a life send for any game world that spans any of the years talked about.
