Countries/Races That Need Work

Post by Nymphetamine » Wed Oct 17, 2012 6:05 pm

Having just looked at the Assi (for a chara), I'm beginning to realize that some of our contributions might require some additional work and polish to make them workable on the new format of the Wiki.

This is intended as a list to keep a note of them. If you submit anything to this list, please give a brief note as to why you feel it needs work.


The Assi: First person description, sometimes very note like, not necessarily polished. The information's pretty solid, I think it just needs to be worked for presentation.

Xiunhai-La: It just seems all over the place, sometimes. The information is great, it just needs some re-arranging and maybe a bit of re-wording so it all flows better.

I'll tackle the Assi, since way back when I was rewriting/expounding on the information there to include an all-female tribe. I think I have my notes around here somewhere.

I also picked up the Elgar Forest as an extension of the Assi, as well as Elgaria as part of the forest. Working on those today.

Can't wait to see the Assi, since I started playing one. I had zero idea of if they were tribal like natives or the Bedouin or what was going on. Haha. It'll be awesome. >:D

I can tackle Xiunhai-La as well, if no one else has already said they'd do it.

It's on the site, but C said it was lacking some information and needed to be polished, from the earlier mention in this thread.

Antara-Ethcabar needs to be fleshed out. The entry on the website is pretty bare bones.

A while back, I did a search through my archives of the BDI ML and Pat Feaster's old Shoonaben newsletters, and didn't find much of use that could be used to beef it up. It looks from what little there is on the website that it used to be the setting of a channel that once shared a setting universe with BDI, but has long since folded. Any info that might have once been on the web is likely long gone, so anyone who wants to tackle the project will have a free hand. I gave a file to Suz of info I culled from various posts about the Southlands wars that might be helpful in fleshing Aslar out more. I also gave her some drafts of expanded writeups on Kahlahra and Thontaran that various people started but never finished. We might be able to use that as the basis for a longer article, or we can discard it if any interested players want to tackle the project and have their own ideas.

Tom Long used to have a longer draft of the Mwayambi writeup that I'll see if I can dig up. He edited down the final version into a briefer form because he felt he was going into TL;DR territory. It may answer some of the questions that Amy had in another thread about Geographical info for her new map.

Incidentally, if anyone wants my archives, just let me know and I can zip it up and upload it to mediafire again like I did for Suz.
