Storyteller initiative - I need a storyteller

Recommended Posts

The Storyteller Request Thread

To get on this list, all you need to do is send Supernal and Acies ab Vesania a PM letting us know which of the categories you want to go into. There is no need to be part of one - if you are full flavor, we assume that means you are willing to assist with those that are less than that.

Note: A member does not need to be on this list to offer "storyteller services" to other members. Anyone can do so at any time. This list is meant to streamline the process of connecting reliable storytellers with the community.

Posting here does not guarantee a storyteller. In order to increase your chances of getting someone to pick up a thread, be clear and specific about your needs. Use the template below. You also have the option of bypassing this thread and PMing a specific ST on the list but one of you should make a post in this thread indicating a successful connection so people can see the system works.

If you have simple needs, you can pick any name on here, if you have complex needs, make sure the category you pick covers your minimum needs. Someone in the Lite category willing to drop a post or two should not be asked to GM your thread.

Request Form

  • Number of Posts: If under 10, be a little specific (such as 3-5 or 7-8), but if over 10, you can put "10+"
  • Link to the Thread, if it exists already:
  • Participants:
  • Location (in the world of Valucre) or if in Alternative, the Genre:
  • Provide exact details of what you need: Will this be playing the role of one character, playing multiple NPCs, generating an event, handling a fight, etc.?
  • Is there a posting order? If so, what is skip time?:
  • How soon do you need this service? Is this a rush request, or something someone can join you in a week or two?:


Requirements:

  • Active role-player for an appropriate amount of months to the ST role
  • No disciplinary issues within the last six months (warnings, formal verbal warnings, etc)
  • Those wishing to take on GM roles will be considered based on history of reliability, organization, and capability

Incentives:

  • A custom user title change for every successfully completed request. One thread per request. Amount subject to change. Requires 5 post minimum engagement. 

Tips

Lite [1mo requirement]

Services Provided: Willing to do 1-2 posts for someone, mainly to create an event of some kind that kicks off the plot.

Regular [2mo requirement]

Services Provided: Willing to 3-5 posts that covers something like a fight against a big bad, dealing with a troublesome NPC who has some important information, or whatever need you may have that can be easily resolved in a short time.

Full Flavor [2mo requirement]

Services Provided: Willing to help with threads in a capacity that requires more than 5 posts, but probably should not be for more than 10. They might play a side character who is not meant to be a lasting character, but has a significant role in the thread (guides them through a dangerous location, leads them to the treasure, etc) or handle a full on battle scene.

The Works [3mo requirement]

Services Provided: 10+ thread committer who also is willing to GM a thread or two.


Rules for Requests:

  • One request per thread at a time. You can post a request again if your request goes unfulfilled for one week. If you have a request fulfilled, you must wait at least two weeks after your service is fulfilled to ask for another one. This is both per thread and per person. If you have two threads that you want some ST services for, have another member of the second thread make the request- it does not have to be the thread owner/starter, assuming permission is granted.
  • You can reach out to individuals via PM, but if you harass or otherwise try to badger/bully them into providing services, you will permanently lose your privileges to make requests.
  • This thread is for requests and agreements to pick up requests only. If you are taking on an assignment, please do post here to let others know it is taken. Absolutely no off topic clutter will be tolerated. The first time it will be removed. The second time you will get a verbal warning. The third time will be formal warnings and escalating consequences.
  • We reserve to add more restrictions as issues come to light

Heya, i a storyteller for a quest based in Blairville. The people taking part in this thread will be;

Doge 

Alexander The Great

An of course our storyteller.

Posting order, would go as follows; Teller, Doge, Alexander.

Time Skip: I would say give it Three days between each, by time this possibly starts a new Semester will be in place. This way we are all spared the rush.

How Soon: This can take place after the Holidays, I understand it is the season to be jolly.

how much: i would like to go to 8-9 posts on an escape from a magic tech prison simply, because i think it would be a lot harder to escape from rather than a normal jail. A part of me feels it might take more depending on how circumstances fall out. But my request is  8-9 posts.\

Role: To play possibly one or more people in order to try and prevent the escape that is going to be attempted by myself and Alexander. 

Side request; if a story teller does take this upon themselves, i request that you have fun in making this as difficult as you can. Who doesn't love a puzzle no? 

lvl2: Your character(s) wakes up in a dark, dank prison cell. S/he has been captured and must escape the Unterholm before an even worse fate befalls them.

 

Err, I believe I covered the bases. Please let me know in my DM's if this is possible. Thank you for making this Thread and for reading this. Thank you for your time and efforts as well to make sure all of the stories keep rolling for people.

REQUEST HAS BEEN FULFILLED! 

                                                                                 

 

I need a helpful hand in carrying a Quest I have going on :smile:

Number of Posts you think you will need a storyteller to provide- if under 10, be specific (such as 3-5 or 7-8), but if over 10, go ahead and put "10+"

I am thinking 5-6 posts [Could be more depending on how things go! But nothing less than 6 please]

Link to the Thread, if it exists already

Here you go! 

 

Name of all participants involved

Aleksei, Iedomee, & Felixlova

Location (in the world of Valucre) or if in Alternative, the Genre

Avylon, Renovatio

Provide exact details of what you need- will this be playing the role of one character, playing multiple NPCs, generating an event, handling a fight, etc.?

This is a rescue mission that'll have some pretty hardcore aftereffects for Renovatio. I need someone to throw a few problems our way when we reach underground. I was thinking some lost, ancient underground city where there are a few creatures still living there and do not appreciate having people invade their space. We need to get in and then we need to get out! Stretch our abilities and make this a mini-challenge (we're talking traps, general hiccups considering the deterioration of the city, and maybe a puzzle here or there if you're so inclined). 

Is there a posting order? If so, what is skip time?

Yes there is: Aleksei, Felixlova, & then Iedomee. The skip time is 3 days inbetween for everyone. 

How soon do you need this service? Is this a rush request, or something someone can join you in a week or two?

Within a week por flavor! Around that time I'll have everyone at the underground location and it gives us to do another solid round of posting before things get nice and saucy 

 

If you have questions/concerns/interested, slide over a pm. Thanks for reading :bigsmile:

I'm listed under the Regular services but I'd still like to take up Aleksei's request unless my commanders object.

If you want to offer more or less services than what you're listed for then by all means make exceptions at will. That listing is just so people know what to expect from who, generally speaking.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better. I had that for two weeks in a place where the sun don't shine so I know how you feel, commander. :[

I would like to request someone from The Works category to represent the Wasteland Border Patrol in this user's thread: http://www.valucre.com/topic/34565-interest-check-calling-out-wasteland-border-patrol-officers-of-terrenus/

I'd like to request either @amenities or @bigfatcat since I know first hand they have a good deal of experience with Terrenus, but will take anyone available from The Works.

If amenities or bigfatcat take this up, I wonder if I might shadow one of them in the thread IC? I could play a character who functions as their WBP lieutenant or something. That way I could maybe even assist in their storytelling drive at the same time as getting better acquainted with the material. Of course, understanding that the OP may not want too many people.

I'm pretty comfortable with both BFC and amenities so that would be a plus.

The idea isn't without merit but should be up, first, to the thread creator because as you said they may not want too many people and every person added extends the wait time of a round of posts, and then to the storyteller that takes it up, who may want or not want to for any particular reason. 

So if they both say yes then I don't think it's something that me or Acies need to have any say over.

The Thread: 

Number of post: Trying to reach the minimum required for the event to be considered suitable enough to alter the Lore of the reigon---30. Can go over that slightly if needed.

Name of all participants: As of now it will be Myself (The Bull), and Priscilla and Shanna (not a definite, BULL would be the main active in this.)

Location: Arcadia Prime/Alterion

Exact Details of what I need: BULL is a Member of The Breakers, and has been given control of an area in sector 5 for his base of operations for his expansion. It needs to be renovated and fortified for his use as a base of operations for not just himself but organization agenda's. I require the NPC of 10 Infantry Units, consisting of 100 Taurean Men per unit, 5 Engineering Units (Each unit possesses 10 individuals, 2 engineers, 2 Tech Specialist, 4 BUILDERS, 2 Materials Specialist) and 5 Specialty Squads (Highly Trained Taurean Operatives that will act as The Kings and Engineering Units personal Guard), and lastly, 3 Air-Ships. 

All will be brought in via Spatial Aperture connecting from The Kingdom of Taurus (Genasaris) to Arcadia prime. Commands will be issued by BULL IC, the NPC just has to see it carried out and portray the time and effort to do so.

Posting Order: Bull, Possible 2 others, and Story teller. Skip time is 24 hours.

How soon do I need service: Immediately if possible, also would like to request that the story teller be able to post at least once a day, or once every 2 days. 

 

Thank you!
