I Warned You, Snail
« on: August 14, 2009, 03:09:28 AM »
If you've seen my posts in HLP ED threads, you can guess what's coming next.

What is this mod about? What is its premise? How is it framed? Is there a story? What's the story background?

Can it do anything other than post renders and screenshots? (:p)

The last time you did this they panicked and hired me to write them a story. :nervous:

That's not terribly reassuring.

Actually, I've been really impressed. They've got some good stuff coming together, and I think your concerns will be assuaged shortly.

I'd rather say "to improve" our story.

Oh shut up and be patient you clot. :P

We'll post something when we can be assed to do so.... :nervous:



Well, the basic premise is that there is a rebellion in the core Vasudan systems with a staunch opposition to the opening of the Sol Gate.

And it's only the beginning of something much bigger.

I am a bit peeved that the (modestly excellent!) background material I wrote has been held up so long while a bunch of renders have gone up.

I'm not going to specify what I think of NGTM-1R's behavior for obvious reasons. :P

Well, ED has a plot as is a very good one also. Battuta is helping a lot getting professional-like scripts done, and I hope they will satisfy you.

I actually think NGTM-1R has been great. As long as gameplay is competent, plot tends to be what players really care about (witness Transcend, which, ironically, transcended some repetitive missions on the strength of an engrossing story.)

He's asking questions about one of the most important parts of any campaign, and something that ED hasn't really showcased yet.

There are reasons for why it's not been posted up yet. The main one is I'm an idiot. :P

I don't think he hates it, you silly geese. He's pointed out a pretty serious weakness in the publicity so far. Hopefully he likes the remedy.

Criticism is fair.
