Hello to all of our fans who have been waiting for this game for so long,

The MXP Development Team has decided that we can greatly facilitate production at this stage in development by providing opportunities for input from the community. That means we'll be turning to you for an opportunity to directly contribute to the development of this game and get your name listed in the credits! We will be holding community contests to write descriptions for certain monsters and items - most likely on a weekly basis, but we may increase or decrease that time depending on how many submissions we get per batch of items and monsters posted. The Development Team will review the submissions for each item and/or monster and pick one to be included in the game (with revisions made if necessary).

The rules are as such:

1. Five items and five monsters will be posted per round. There is no limit to how many descriptions a contestant may write per round. However, you may submit only one description per item.
2. Please use correct spelling and grammar.
3. Please check the bi-monthly updates for examples of the monster and item descriptions we have written already. You may use the styles used in these descriptions as a guideline, or use whatever style you believe fits the item or monster well.
4. We'll leave the length of the description to your own judgment. Sometimes descriptions don't need more than 4 or 5 sentences, but other times you may feel a "special" item or monster deserves a lengthier description.
5. "Having a fifth rule would be overdoing it," a great man once said. There is no fifth rule.

The bottom line is to have fun with this: be creative and write an interesting description, but please remember to 'keep it clean'.

Keep an eye out for the first round of the contest, coming very soon!

I asked if I could help with the writing almost a year ago. Better late than never, I guess. Now to pretend my English degree is useful.

Brilliant idea, it'd be good for the rest of everyone to get our teeth sunk in.

Awesome to see parts of this opening up!

Then again it's for text content and detailing, not actual coding, which is cool nonetheless :]

This should probably have been said in the starting thread, but we're trying to avoid too many real-world references. There are however a few in some older descriptions of ours. This was prompted by yff's description, the idea of que? as reason for the prefix in Que'ssus is actually quite good, but we'll probably change the name of the language if the description is included.

To be fair we should release some background on local lore as our description writers have meshed it with their descriptions, but I hardly know where to start, perhaps Crusher or somebody else will think of something. It's perfectly OK if you, dear community, want to build a theme around a favourite hero of yours, or make up a distant country with strange customs, etc, which make returning appearances in several descriptions.
