    Hey guys!

    So, to kick off the MUD brainstorming session, we're going to hold a contest! Wooo! This thread is for GO members to post their plot concepts for OgreMUD. You don't have to be a builder to enter! :)

    The game is slated to be a prequel to Ogre Wars and will take place within the OW universe, but beyond that, there are no real constraints. Feel free to explore such ideas as why the nations are at war, etc. We'll be taking submissions until November 15 or until our collective inspiration fizzles out, and then at the end we'll compile the ideas and have a vote for the overarching plot of OMUD. Winner gets a shiny prize, yet to be determined by ogreman! :hz:

    I will start !

    All the ogres could not get along. Some wanted to attack everything in sight while others wanted to be the toughest creatures ever. There was a third group who wanted to focus on making moolah ! 3 and then 4 nations emerged from these groups. The big beasts became the gold beasts (attacking + gold) after much success. The hybrid Womper came and went and came again. The Steelskulls dominated at times but are now hybrid too. Only the Ironheads have remained focused solely on toughness.

    How about this :)

    Ironheads and Gold Beasts have had an conflict since a long time. Now Ironheads wants to settle this conflict once and for all, so the Ironheads bribe the Wompers to join forces with them. When Gold Beasts hears that they joined forces, they bribe the Steelskulls to join forces with them. They also try to bribe Wompers to betray the Ironheads and join the Gold Beasts. The Wompers agrees, however they plan on defeating the other three nations so that they can take the power and be the final leading nation. To do so, they plan to have troops help the Ironheads and other troops helping the Gold Beasts and the Steelskulls. Their troops will however just ''pretend'' to fight until the other nations got low on troops, so that they can defeat the other nations easy. One of Steelskulls spies however finds out about this and decides to kill the Wompers leader when the Wompers and the Gold Beasts was going to have a meeting. But they accidentally kill one of Gold Beasts men instead, making the Steelskulls and the Gold Beasts enemies. Trying to explain the situation they tell them what Wompers were planning. However the Gold Beasts doesn't believe them. One of the Ironheads spies finds out about everything that happened in the meeting leading that the Wompers now also are their enemies.

    Now all nations are enemies :eek: At least if I wrote it right xD Might be a pretty long text though o_o

    "The Ogre Wars Volume 1"

    Year 1357 of the New Age - It has been 1357 years since the first Ogres entered Palmoria through The Portal when the Old World was on the verge of being destroyed by the Corruption. Everything has been peaceful and quiet since then, the Ogres of Palmoria drove the lesser goblins away from the peaceful fertile land of Lanola and left them to survive in the dark wastelands beyond. Over the course of time the Ogres slowly split up into roughly 4 groups, or tribes as they called it themselves.

    The Gold Beasts are true born raiders, though it has never been officially proven, they thrive on the wealth of the three other tribes. They were so good at it, they turned out to become even richer than their prey. This didn't stop them from continuing the tradition, albeit to keep their offensive skills strong.

    The Ironheads are a very cautios group. They live in their barricaded towns in the hills and protecting their homes and families is their primary goal. Because of their protective nature they want to know everything that is happening around them. So the ones that aren't trained to defend are trained to be as stealthy as possible. These are the famous Iron Spies.

    The Stealskulls are a rag-tag band of warriors. They travel across Palmoria to fight tournament after tournament, because the biggest honour is of course to win the nationwide championship. Travelling around fighting makes them knowledgable fighters.

    But what happens to those who do not belong to any tribe? (And of course the ones that are exiled from the other tribes) Most of them are part of the large merchants' tribe, the Wompers. Being of such a diverse nature, it makes them reasonable at any skill, but not good at any. They are usely described as the Jack-of-all-Trades-Master-of-none Tribe.

    Year 1403 of the New Age - After a peaceful period between the four tribes, resources started diminishing a couple decades ago. Due to the lack of resources tension is forming between the tribes. The raiding Gold Beasts are hated more than ever, as are the Wompers for the rising prices. The once dispersed and loosebound tribes are really forming different groups of society, with a leader standing up in every tribe. Though no wars have been declared yet, anyone who is still sane knows it will happen one day soon. Every tribe is preparing, one offensively, the other defensively.



    (Might need some adapting and expanding, just wrote this for fun for now :))

    Meybe I will try to give you an idea:)

    The new nation has appered. They are colled "Silverviles" (becouse they have bonus to troops recruitment and to incomes, others +5%). They want to rule that new world which their find. But they meet another nations. At the first night in this new world thay have been attack by some shininig in the dark creatures. They tryed to fight them but their arrows and axes wasnt able to penetrate enemies armors. Attack has ended and only half of Silverviles left alive. They decided to find a saft place to grove in power and planed to find that deadlie creatures that attaced them. They find the great canyon where were many caves. So they decided to settle there. It turned out that these caves are old mines left here by unknown naton. It appeares that in many of these caves they find not minded gold. This place was the best one to make they enough strong to eliminate old enemies and new that wasnt meet to this moment....


    I hope its a good idea to invite new friends to our world ;) The specification of new nation will by decided by creators ;) My spec is only a proposal :)

    Well, hoped to hear back from Noche since this contest has improved considerably since I last PMed him.

    King, Dark, and PolanWalker all had great ideas:).

    Overall, I liked the way King presented his ideas the best so he is our winner:).

    What did he win? A free Steam Game of his choosing from the shop. Dark and Polan will receive 500 forum points each for worthy efforts.
