So I was perusing through the DUST forums, and I noticed that the Intergalactic Summit therein didn't really have the news stories that we see on the EVE Intergalactic Summit. So I enthusiastically, and potentially foolishly, came up with an idea to disseminate the news stories we see/generate on the Intergalactic Summit forum in EVE and other RP events/occurrences.
Enter Pyyrota Jushin, my DUST bunny who will never see action as I don't own a PS3, but who will do his part nonetheless. My plan is to use Pyyr simply as an exposition device to help relay the news to the DUST players, and hopefully bring to them a little bit more of the lore and sense of the universe that we love, exist in, and enliven with events and stories.
How would this work? I will give a brief example of the post you'd see from Pyyr:
Pyyr staggered out of his quarters and into the mess, holding onto the bench he shoves a cup under the coffee machine and enthusiastically beats the machine into giving up its glorious liquid. Blinking he flicks on the news, flopping onto the couch, he allows the incessant headlines and stories to wash over him.
'Capsuleers organise a relief convoy... trouble expected and hundreds of thousands at risk again from the violence of these would-be gods...'
A groan as Pyyr remembers his physical is today.
Obviously a super brief example but you get the idea; Pyyr will serve to simple frame a single news story.
Now this brings me to why I am posting this here, if you have a news story you want posted shoot me (Arkon Sarain) an EVEmail with either the subject and key points to cover and I will write it up, and run it by you for approval first. Or just send me the text to put in the post as the news story and I will do that.
Whichever works for you, hopefully this helps everyone in both communities a bit, and that the fact that a rather new peep is doing this doesn't offend.
