A new story arc – Project Serpens

July 28, 2010 3 comments

One of the gameplay aspects of City of Heroes/Villains I have not written much about is to create story arcs. A reason for that has been that I do not want to spoil the story in case someone would play these arcs.

But frankly, who am I kidding? The five story arcs I have published in the game so far are not played much. The number of times I have received a rating and/or comment this year on any of those can be counted on one hand. So the rest of the post here is about creating a new story arc (my sixth). If you are one that actually might play it at some point – you have been warned!

No Rikti were hurt during the making of this story arc

Writing like who?

I saw this amusing post at The Ancient Gaming Noob who in turn had seen it at World IV and decided to try a few of my blog posts:

Post 1: Leo Ericsson – Into the hole

This post was pretty much a fiction post rather than normal MMO ranting. The result was

I write like
Arthur C. Clarke

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Really good start!

Next post, one which was about some adventures with a character in Tabula Rasa: Brann new Fedex

The result was:

I write like
Arthur C. Clarke

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Another one, quite nice. The SciFi setting probably helps.

Third post, more fantasy oriented: Wolf of the jungle

The result was:

I write like
Rudyard Kipling

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I have a strong suspicion that the usage of the word jungle might have affected the results here…

One final attempt, a fake MMO announcement from an old April 1st post: World of Baywatch Online soon to enter open beta

And the result here was:

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I have no clue what makes this similar to Lovecraft. It is certainly a scary topic, but…

The same site that hosts this software has a link to a Q&A article with the author of the software.
