worlds in a pen

Hello! My name is Almedha. I’ve been writing for a long time, both for fun and for work. I once had a lore shop here, maybe two+ years ago, but I think I wasn't charging enough. I had too much to write, and not much to show for it. I also didn't think it was fair to charge here what I've charged in the real world, either--I don't think anybody would pay 8.5k gems on the lowest end for a bio like this. I didn't know what to charge, but I didn't want to charge too much, and I didn't want to charge too little.

I came across The Mythery a few days ago when I was thinking of opening another lore shop (I don't know them or anything, but I like their writing). Their pricing scheme seems really fair, so I'm going to use their pricing as a template, at least until I can figure out my own.

rules
  • I don't write anything that goes against FR rules/tos
  • Conversion rate is 1:1000 because math
  • Prices are based on word count, so let me know how many words you want (rounded to the nearest hundred), and I’ll get within about fifty or so words
  • I accept treasure, gems, items, items, art, or any combination thereof
  • I do edit my work, but everybody misses things!
  • You have 72 hours to let me know any changes (bigger than typos) you want made
  • My job has really hard-to-predict busy spells and periods of nothing-doing, so I’ll try to keep you updated about how long your commission will take
  • Commissions < 100kt, pay me when I finish; commissions > 100kt, pay half in the beginning, and then half when I finish
  • I can write non-Sornieth things, but this is strictly on an as-I-like basis… I’m very unlikely to do these
  • Do not remove my credit and/or link to my clan profile page wherever you post the writing/bio
  • I will be archiving my writing for you in my archive post

pricing
  • Stories (200 word count minimum) = 30kt base price + 10kt per 100 words + additional 10kt per 500
  • Histories (100 word count minimum) = 20kt base price + 10kt per 100 words + additional 10kt per 500
  • Full Bios (includes story, history, familiar, and trivia - 600 word count minimum | includes layout if desired) = 40kt base price + 10kt per 100 words + additional 10kt per 500

Here is an example of what one of my full bios and what it would cost.
7482931.png Full bio - ~800 words
40kt + 80kt + 10kt = 130kt

For her Story Only - ~200 words
30kt + 20kt = 50kt

For her History Only - ~400 words
20kt + 40kt = 60kt

If you find all that acceptable, post in the thread! Here is a form for your convenience.

examples
These are full bios (on my own dragons). Hopefully in the future I will have other examples, as well. Full bios include a Story, History, Familiar, and Trivia. I don’t write the familiar and trivia on their own, but they can be included in a whole bio if you want. In general, I’ll only write a Story or History on their own. (Click the picture for the bio.)

[b]Payment:[/b] a mix of t/g depending on the final price. if you're interested i can offer 2 elemental eggs as partial payment? [b]What:[/b] Here we go, I'd like it all done for my progen dragon, Arwen: [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=36609808] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/366099/36609808_350.png[/img] [/url] https://sta.sh/01j0dakzl7xx I've made some rough dafts about her personality (which i'd like you to develop a bit in the 'history' part) and the story of how she met her mate, Gale, and founded the clan. [b]Also:[/b] You can adjust the lenght of the story as you see fit, i left some parts loose (since i couldn't come up with them myself) and you can use artistic freedom to fill them in. any important bits should be in my drafts, but of course if you have any questions feel free to ask and discuss! hope i didnt miss anything in the form^^

@MistyGold
Hello! Thank you for bringing that pretty girl here.

Alright, since you gave me a range on the story, I'll tell you the price for the high and low range. Payment in eggs is fine.

1,400 words:
40kt + (14)10kt + (2)10kt = 200,000 t

3,400 words:
40kt + (34)10kt + (6)10kt = 440,000 t

Either will include the story, history, and two relationships.

I really like the set up you have for her story, and Gale looks like a sweetheart. If you do want me to adjust the word count as I write, I can do that and keep you updated. You can also decide more solidly what word count you want, knowing the range of prices.

Also, is there a bio layout you want me to put the writing in?

@Almedha [b]Username:[/b] sleepytroll [b]I’d like a:[/b] History [b]Word Count:[/b] 400 [b]Payment:[/b] Treasure [b]What:[/b] Lacuna (meaning an unfilled space or interval; a gap.) is a recent addition to my clan and signed herself up for a role as a Gladiator. In the clan of Petrified Winds, Gladiators are elite warriors who, once ever year, are eligible to compete in a roman-gladiator-esque trial for the honor of becoming Morana's (the clan leader) successor. Personality wise, I imagine Lacuna comes across as friendly, but distant, never allowing others to become more then comrades-in-arms and prefers to observe then engage. She's actually not all that interested in becoming the next successor, but perhaps quietly culls participants she deems as unworthy/dangerous (if they were to become the next leader)--In fact, maybe she could easily win the trials due to her strength, but simply chooses to hold herself back. I haven't really thought of her character past this, and she could really use a backstory (which I leave up to creative freedom)! [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=41729935] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/417300/41729935_350.png[/img] [/url] [b]Also:[/b] I haven't yet thought of a Charge for her...so if you have an idea for a possible Charge, that would be a wonderful addition! I hope that's enough details to inspire you! You're writing is absolutely lovely, and I'm happy to give you lots of creative freedom with this character. : )

Ah, she's beautiful, and I really like her character concept! And thank you so much; I'm really glad you like my writing. I am very much looking forward to writing for this girl.

The cost for 400 words will be
20kt + (4)10kt = 60,000 t

I'll ping you back here when it's finished!
