With the big November $500 writing contest in full swing, thought I'd focus this week's update on inspiration.
Firstly: Some of the stretch goal quests unlocked during The Horror's Kickstarter are now available for play! Make sure to adjust your app settings to use Expedition + The Horror, and then look for the following quests in the search results:
- Raventree Manor (2-6 players)
- Darkest at Dawn (2-6 players)
- Invoco Tenebrae (2-6 players)
- Secrets of the Past (1-6 players)
Even if you don't have a copy of the expansion yet, we still highly recommend checking them out. They're some of the best Expedition quests yet, and can be a great source of writing inspiration!
Secondly, we've found that adding a bit more description to the world and NPCs (non-player characters) in your story can make a HUGE difference in enjoyment. To help you brainstorm interesting settings, situations and backstories, we now have 9 Questcrafter inspiration posts here: ExpeditionGame.com/QuestCrafter
And finally, don't forget that all contest entries must be publicly published by November 30th, 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time! At that point, we will validate that all entries (which may be single quests or quest series) meet the minimum 20,000 word requirement.
If you have any questions or run into any technical issues, please don't hesitate to contact us via the "Contact Us" button or by emailing Authors@Fabricate.io
Thank you - and we can't wait to see what you write!
Todd, Scott, Greg and the Expedition Team
