Suscitare: Announcement and Recruiting Thread
Hi, everyone.

So I've had an idea in my head for a minicampaign that takes place during the Second Shivan Incursion but is set in the Blue Planet universe for quite a while. Today I take a tentative step forward and declare that I'm actually working on it - and I'm reaching out to the community for willing helpers. I never intended to complete this on my own due to my tendency to get discouraged and give up, so hopefully with a small team we can pull through and bring this to fruition!

Let me give you a short blurb: Suscitare explores events that take place during the Second Shivan Incursion and both shrouds and explains elements of the cosmic forces that we see at work during the FS2 campaign and the BP campaigns. While short, Suscitare is heavily story-driven and digs deep into FS2 and BP lore. Fight for your entire race as you are caught up in events that determine humanity's fate... one way or another.

Still here? Good. As I mentioned above, I'm reaching out to the community to assist in getting this campaign to completion. And with that, the first position I'm looking for is that of a Story and Writing Consultant. Whilst a general story outline is in place, peer review is always good, and I'd like to get someone to help me tie up the loose ends and refine the story so that it's plausible within the setting that it's delivered (at least until future acts of BP are released!). This person will also work with me to compartmentalise the story into missions and hammer out the details so we've got it all sorted out and internally consistent.

The consultant should have played all BP material, be well-versed in BP lore, and have an eye for details. If you're interested, PM me, and feel free to include any material you deem could help your application.

Thanks in advance! I will update this thread with details as more positions open.

Re: Suscitare: Announcement and Recruiting Thread (Story Consultant wanted!)
I could probably help. Not sure if qualified though.

Then will this be Blue Planet canon?

Re: Suscitare: Announcement and Recruiting Thread
Definitely not.

EDIT: To clarify, the story as it stands is kind of like a "what if?" take on some of the events that happened during FS2. It is liable to major reworking, however, so not much is really set in stone at this point.

Re: Suscitare: Announcement and Recruiting Thread
I could help with ideas of all sorts(mission, story etc) if you want.

Edit: I'm not very regular, though since my finals are going on.

Hey. I'm not looking for more people at this time, but thanks for the offer! Once story-related hashing out is done (SoonTM) I'll have more information and new positions may open up depending on where this all goes, so stay tuned! :)
