Hey everyone!

The writer's position in our team had been unavailable for a few months. It's now available again, so everyone interested in writing a book for MERP can post an application in our forums here in the Applications board. After you apply we will give you something to write(history book, a journal, an account of an event, science fiction inside Middle Earth, book with descriptions of creatures, etc) in order to see how good you are. But if you can think of something that you want to write, especially for Bree, it would really help! So get your pens(or keyboards...) and show us what you can do!

Thank you,
~MERP Team~

Would it be better in old English or modern or maybe something along the lines of how they talked in the movies

How about just writing a note or something?
Or like fliers, like " Rivendell, where the elves are"
i also feel like doing this, but i feel like i'll do one or two, and be done, but then again, there is no down-side to applying, is there?

do you have to know elfish to write? (please say yes, it would be epic to have some "true" elfish in the game)

We WILL have books written in Sindarin, yes. We already have some texts. So if someone can write in Sindarin, he's more than welcome! :)

Well, if you want to donate some texts without applying, that can be done. Just write them in the Tavern section of the forums or the MERP Discussion section and if they are good enough we will include them. If you apply and are accepted, then you will need to at least stay active on the forums or after a while you would be removed from the dev list. You are welcome to do either one ;)

I would suggest that you guys really write the books like it should be.

If you wana write a book from Bree, search on google how did they write, how did they talk, any expressions, etc...
That realism would just be awesome.

Hi! I'm from Brazil and I have once written a very good adventure for MERP about recovering the supposed Silmaril left inside the lonely mountain. If you have any interest, tell me and I can send the hole text to the MERP team. I would be glad to cooperate with this wonderful project.
