In today’s update we have a great opportunity for those of you that like to write epic stories, a new collaboration for 3D print models, a cool Grimdark Future battle report and finally an update for the forum!
Open Call for Writers
One of the questions we asked during our last Community Survey was if people would be interested in narrative campaigns for our games, which was answered with a very decisive YES from the fans.
Well, if we want to make narrative campaigns, then we’re going to need someone to write all of the cool stories that go into that, recounting heroic deeds and epic battles to the last man.
As you can tell from the little background story blurbs at the beginning of the army lists, we’re not really the best at writing this kind of stuff…
In order to help us get some actual quality stories out there we’re currently looking for writers that would like to work with us, and anyone can apply.
To apply simply send an e-mail with a 150-300 words story set in the Grimdark Future or Age of Fantasy universes to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure to put OPR WRITER at the beginning of the e-mail’s title so that our filter can pick it up, and we’re going to accept applications until the 26th of February.
Anything goes really, so you can send us short stories, battle descriptions, army backgrounds, or whatever else you think can best show off your writing skills.
If you are selected we will contact you for future projects, and here is the deal we are going to offer you for any collaboration:
- We are going to pay for any content that is going to be distributed commercially, such as Patreon-exclusive content or paid Rulebooks.
- Any content that is going to be distributed for free is on a voluntary basis, such as community campaigns or similar open content.
This is the first time we’re organizing something like this so things could always change as we move along, but anything we do will always be communicated very clearly.
That’s it, go ahead and send your stories now, we’re looking forward to reading them!
Today we’re also really happy to announce that we’ll be collaborating with Kyoushuneko Miniatures to release 3D print fantasy miniatures for Age of Fantasy!
They make really stunning looking fantasy miniatures, which are released via their own Patreon, and they’ve agreed to collaborate with us to provide miniatures specifically designed for our games.
Check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/Kyoushuneko_Miniatures
The way this is going to work is that they provide us with special miniatures, which are going to be exclusive to our patrons in early access for one month, and after that will be made available for free on CGTrader.
So yeah, more models for you every month, sounds pretty great. :D
Grimdark Future Battle Report
The fine folks at Atelier d’un Wargamer have posted up a new Grimdark Future battle report, with a 1450pts slaughter of Prime Brothers vs TAO Coalition.
This battle report is in French, but you can use the auto-translate feature on YouTube to get a semi-reliable translation… and also it’s always fun to just watch things die!
Fan-Made Content Section on the Forum
Finally we wanted to let you all know that we have a new section on the official forum for Fan-Made Content: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/board/39/fan-content
Here you will find cool new takes on our existing games, or even total conversions of the one-offs, such as the bombastic WarMechs conversion of WarFleets.
Make sure to check it out and post your own crazy ideas. :)
That’s it for today. We’re looking forward to reading all of your story submissions, and we’re going to be releasing some more awesome content next week so get ready!
