Twilight Eye News: Info for Journalists

Postby Rias » Tue Jun 10, 2014 12:24 pm

Anyone interested is welcome to submit news articles for the IG newspaper, "Twilight Eye News".

Article submission process:
1) Pick a subject/topic for your article, and a few basic details of what you wish to write. Also please include any NPCs you may want to ask a question or two of as part of your article. Email this info to clok@contrarium.net. You will not be given any special or inside info regarding your subject. Pick a subject you already know some information about, or one that can be completely fabricated.
2) Await approval/further info to be sent back to you. (It's possible some subjects may not be approved)
3) If approved, write up the full article and email it to clok@contrarium.net
- 4) The "editor" may possibly send the article back to you with some editors' notes and suggetsions about revising your article.
- 5) Revise your article per the editor's notes and send it back to clok@contrarium.net.

Writing guidelines:
- Keep it current
- Keep it accurate
- Keep it believable
- Spelling and grammar are important! Use a word processor's spelling/grammar check if you need to - I won't be doing this for you! (Exceptions for in-game terms/names/spelling unique to CLOK)

Topic Suggestions:
- Generic articles about "a day in the life" of NPCs.
- Interview an NPC: Come up with a bunch of questions to ask a notable NPC.
- Generic articles about extraordinary yet mundane happenings. Westbrook angler hooks massive fish! Emleth farmer grows enormous pumpkin! Notorious bandit leader at large/caught near Shadgard!
- Reviews of local venues. Maybe your journalist is writing about the fantastic food and service at the Hanged Man, or gives a scathing review of the subpar rooms at the inn in Emleth. Remember to do your research first, though. Check out the venue as much as possible in-game before you write about it.

Other Notes:
- These articles are not written by your player character. You can make up a journalist persona if you wish and sign your articles with it.

To be updated as we think of stuff!

Oh, also, if your character has something they'd want to report to the newspaper for coverage, they can send an npcmail to "twilighteye" with the npcmail command. It may be investigated individually by an NPC journalist, or in some cases, they may want to interview your character.

We're looking to make the in-game newspapers a more active and regular thing and are seeking submissions! I've updated the notes above, please email your requests/submissions to our group clok@contrarium.net email address.

Would love to see a monthly publication. If you plan on contributing towards a monthly newspaper, we'll need your contributions for the next month no later than the 20th of each month to give us time to prepare it and address any concerns.
[GMCHAT Uyoku]: Octum is when the octumbunny comes around and lays pumpkins everywhere right?
[GMCHAT Rias]: Dimmes says "oh hai :) u need healz? ill get u dont worry thaum lasers pew pew pew lol"
[CHAT - GameMaster Rias would totally nuke Rooks]: Here's how elemancy works: The freeblegreeble and the zippoflasm have to be combined with the correct ration of himbleplimp, then you add the gargenheimer and adjust the froopulon for the pattern you want, apply some tarratarrtarr, yibble the wantaban, and let 'er rip!
