Hey there. You've probably seen my other videos about RulerOfKings.com. Well, in this video I'm going to talk about how creative storytelling is done through descriptive writing in Ruler Of Kings. In the beginning, you go through the process of creating a character. This character represents a fictitious person that lives in a medieval fantasy town. Your character has an aura… that means you can choose for your character to follow the route of law abiding, good and charitable, ambiguous, a little on the bad side or down right evil!
You see its your choice as to how your character adjusts to life. You come up with the details of how your character looks, the kind of choices he or she makes and so forth. RulerOfKing.com then generates a character sheet based on that so you can follow your character's progression and adjust your storyline to suit. In the opening story, your character will be starting out as a teenager heading towards adulthood.
There are predefined personalities that your character encounters. These personalities are the townsfolk and they provide goods or services that your character may need. For instance, you might want to have your character specialize with sword training. While you can do that you can also detail what happened in the training. Was it a good day, were your instructors a bit harsh?
Just about anything in Ruler of Kings can be described by you. Now, don't think you have to write an essay to make a move in Ruler of Kings… its not like that. Ruler of Kings allows you to also play while enjoying what others have written. In other words, you can leave the details to those that like to write in the details. See you there!
