Well as you can tell from the title I am writing a book based in the NR universe. Before I get to the point of the topic here are a few notes:
  • All of the big battles are located away from Terra Nova
  • The 2 main groups are 2 small countries/factions
  • one of which is a Grimm's army-like faction that has control of a somewhat large colony on DinoTerra and several others throughout Nova Refuge and Nova Shelter. Their 'army' is somewhat large and very skilled for a small country/faction but does not have nearly the best tech.
  • The other is much like Yavakaro in most ways and has a very large, somewhat unskilled, but with tech that is only several years behind Xarkon and Victory.
Now that you all understand what this is all about (at least, you think you do), I am asking for names, characters, (small) city names, etc. And everyone who contributes would be given credit.

Here's the "signup sheet"

Name:
Age:
Gender:
Affiliation:
Preferred Weapon:
Bio:
Appearance:

Interesting title you got there. Anyway, what do you want for characters? A sign up, similar to RPs?

EDIT: If anyone has any other suggestions for the "sign-up" sheet?

I don't know if you're still doing this, but if so I'd love to contribute. Could you give me a little more info on the basic plot?

Then out spake brave Horatius,

The Captain of the Gate:

"To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late.

And how can man die better

Than facing fearful odds,

For the ashes of his fathers,

And the temples of his gods."

I'm not exactly sure what all is up there but here is a two-three sentence plot. 2 small countries, formerly part of the Big 4, are at war. The first has no formal military so they rely on guerilla tactics and training as harsh as the secret soviet police, the Spetnaz. The second has a formal, but not well-trained, army with technology that may very well challenge the likes of Xarkon and Victory.

So, how’s it going with the book? I know that creating characters is the hardest part of writing, I used this article to develop mine
http://www.how-to-wr...characters.html
Everything is pretty obvious, but there are some interesting tips that can really help. They did in my case at least. Also, you may like this one
http://www.askwiki.n...o-Write-a-Novel
It’s about creating stories in general, again, just the basics, but I noticed that many people make this mistake – they don’t know the very basic things about writing and mess everything up. Hopefully, you won’t repeat their mistakes J Good luck with your book!
