Necromancer Mortis

Recommended Posts

Mortis has been a familiar face in MD since 2008. Originally as green as it came when he started he hasn't changed much beyond Mind Power and has developed a standard anti-hero rp although he initially attempted to be something of a villain until he was reprimanded and threatened with banning. For a long time Mortis avoided alliances seeking to remain neutral despite invites to both Necrovion and Loreroot, despite this he later joined and became leader of the Woodcutter's Guild which he immediately converted to a socialist system which has since backfired due to a large number of it's members having either quit or spend most of their time idle. He is the current spokesperson and tool manager for the guild but spends most of his time rping. Nevertheless if asked hes is quite willing to get resources for a player - for a small fee of course... Edited by Necromancer Mortis

So this is starting to be questioned for the contest, but no reasons cited.

Too short? Not enough detail or depth?

Let's establish this as a lower limit then for future contest submissions.

actually, I think (in my opinion) that it IS too short, and hardly enough to cover the topic, after all, let's suppose I were to talk about MP3s, I could talk about 10 by saying :

[Name] came to MD at [date] and loved it. Since then, [Name] has been a valuable addition to this fine community, and he/she, and as they say [long quote]. [Name] would like to join [land] because [reasons] and I say we should encourage them.

naturally that would be really dumb, but I would have covered all basic information about this person, and doing that with 10 shouldn't be a problem, apart from that, if you look at my submission about you Fyrd, you'll find that it IS NOT full of detail, talking about every single fact, but it contains a fair amount of detail and facts, also, size does not show how good a submission is, for a short submission may be better than a long one, but still I think this is WAY too short... writing things like this doesn't actually need any research or reading, you can write it in your sleep!

Hmmm... quest sponsor sets rules and criteria - and provides prizes.... We may just go along or not - participate or not :-) I would like individual judging/scoring of each submission, but I am not a sponsor and welcome the quest :-)

but that doesn't mean we can't try to get to know what is/is not allowed ^^ I mean, I think I'll go ahead and right about some of those who I know and consider not too much of valuable additions here (Quas, Tom Letter, lol you X, and LW...) it'd be easy to do so if the length CAN be this much ONLY

I had said this submission was okay before MoM objected. I can't go back on this one just because of competitor's objections.

I do agree now that it is probably too short to cover the subject. The rule is "concise - just long enough to cover the subject". There is surely more to tell that is important for getting a picture of who N.M. really is.

So, all future submissions need to be longer than the above, and cover the subject well enough.

Necro - it might be good if you added a bit....

I would like to point out that my worst article is actually about me. It's really hard to be objective about yourself and most of the stuff I've done is RP so it isn't much use in the article however I do count as a person in the news due to my status as spokesperson for the woodcutting guild.
