hi guys

As some of you are aware, i am currently developing a card game.
Whilst play testing is going off i wanted to create a bit of lore for the characters and location.

If anyone is interested in having a bit of fun, i am looking fora few people to help with this.
It isn't anything too serious, just a loose story to give the characters a bit of depth.

All together there are 30 characters for the game, and i would like to have something in place for when i launch the site for it.
the game is set in a Medieval fantasy world with almost no limit to the stories, so anyone can get involved.

the characters are mostly Human but include Faerie, ent, halflings, etc..

Yeah, I have the art, but I don't want to publish them just yet.
I'll send you them when I get some time later.

Totally down to help out. But a bit of guidance on the world and state of things would be nice for a jumping off point. Art work would also be appreciated.

Are you looking for short vignettes, some quick flavor text, or a paragraph of backstory?

And then there are the technical questions:

Do you have a word limit you are looking for?
Are you looking for it to be written in British English?

With some more details, count me in. Any reason to write is a good reason.

I have some experience.
