Just a random guy with a passion for video games and music. If you want to contact me, I'm on Xfire and Steam often enough. If you want a custom header, background or avatar (or all three!) for personal use or for your group(s), let me know ;) Space and words of all sorts will fill this space, never to be seen again. On top of that I am going to update my profile so that you cannot see these words. Instead, a cool looking picture shall go on top with some html links for various sites of mine. I still have five hundred characters to go. Drat. Whilst writing that I lessened the character amount. I now have three hundred and sixty one. Wow, that actually worked. But it doesn't matter, because you will never see this again. Well, maybe if you're lucky you will, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, I'm going to attempt to. I need to max out the text. Horribly annoying at times, let me tell you. Still quite a few characters to go, but only in the double digits. Fortunately that ate a bit up. Single.

I've been inspired recently from various different sources to pull up an idea I had a really long time ago: write a story using people I knew as the basis for characters. Now usually that's taboo in writing, as most of the time fiction doesn't use real places or people as templates, but in this case, I decided to write around the ModDB members that I've known for a while now. 

The reason I decided to do that was quite a few of us enjoy role playing and all of us enjoy video games. I figured I could meld the two to some degree, allowing us to create characters that we would want to play in a game and have them set forth into an unknown world where they can do whatever they want and be whatever they want. An open world book if you will. The world is completely new and can hold whatever we can think of. It is literally the most open sandbox you will ever find.

I however, would only be writing the stories, not creating the main characters. That's where you, the ModDB member come in. I need characters to write about: their history, experiences, adventures, etc. But I won't be creating those characters, you will. You can describe your character to the nth degree, from appearance customization to race/specie and your entire skillset. You can be as generous or as stingy with your backstory as you like. Have you always wanted to be a gravity defying dragon? Go for it. An epic swordsman who no one knows about it? Me too! A race that you've created on your own but never actually did anything with? Let me know! No matter how much information you provide me, I will write you into your own story and even into the other character's storylines. 

What's unique about this is we become our own hero and protagonist (or villain and antagonist if that's your flavor!). If you've ever wanted to read a story about a character you've designed and had an intimate hand in shaping, this is pretty much it. If you're interested, send me a PM with any questions you have or your character info. Remember, you can send me whatever you want, super detailed if you want me to write a specific way or just a few things if you want me to be creative about it.

Things I'm still mulling over include the following:
A world name
A basic time period/dating system (e.g. 872 HY. HY standing for High Year) 
Races (this doesn't matter too much except for world content, like non-writable characters)
Important places (names for cities and locations)
Possible evil characters (this might change depending on people's choice of protagonist/antagonist)

I'll update you guys if I think of anything else. Remember, let me know if you're interested and send me your character info! Sorry for the long post :P
