Writing assistance.

Postby The Great Rings » April 22nd, 2017, 5:56 am

I'm a long-time fan of Wesnoth, but my skills and interests lie more in the direction of writing than coding, music, or graphics.

So, I'm putting this out here: if anyone wants assistance with campaign stories, dialog, or proof-reading/editing of narration/dialog, I am interested in assisting (time and availability permitting, of course).

Was this "Revising the HttT Text & Dialogue" project ever completed? viewtopic.php?p=510772#p510772

I don't know, but since the thread seems to have died almost four years ago, I'm guessing no.

I recall a number of threads discussing improvements to HttT's dialog and plot over the years, but I don't know if any of those efforts ever got added, even partially, to mainline.

Its a subject I'd certainly be interested in revisiting, as soon as I've played through HttT again to refresh my memory and see what the current status of the campaign is.

I've put up a thread specifically for discussing dialog/story editing of HttT, if anyone's interested.

I just noticed that all those dropbox links for vodot's work have expired. That is a real shame, because I thought his edits were fantastic. My idea was for you to just continue where he left off.

Does anyone still have those files?

If you can do faction or unit descriptions, please PM me. War of Legends is still lacking unit descriptions for most of the factions.

I also like to ask you.

I would like to ask you to rewrite the text of the add-on campaign "Mountain Witch". (Of course, if there is something you are interested in)
"Mountain Witch" translated originally from Japanese was translated into English. However, my English skills are not very good, and the completed English text has a bad reputation.
Please PM me if you accept this proposal.
