This thread is related to a project I'm working on, using old information from a failed project led by others.
I'm keeping the fluff seperate, becuase then I can have it critiqued away from the army list it will guide.
I have one request. If you recognise the project this is for, please don't blab it. I'm not sure how the old project leaders would really react.
I'm going to be trying to write the fluff from the point of view of every other race, up until I finally reveal the project. This means a lot of different styled writings, which will be a fun test of my writing skills.
For this first tip-bit, I must thank Thantos for his unique way of accepting contest entries.
