SolForge Flavor Text Contest

Posted in News on by

Want to put your own creative touch on the SolForge world? How about writing flavor text for some of your favorite cards! We’re in the process of fleshing out the first set with a bit more personality, and we figured there are tons of creative fans out there who might like to help! From now until next Thursday, we will be accepting flavor text submissions for any of the cards we have released so far.

Anyone whose text is chosen to be used on a card will get their name as part of the creative team in the credits of the game, and one winner will be chosen to have their likeness portrayed on an upcoming card!

Post your submissions in in our thread on Facebook or in our forums for a chance to win!

    I felt like putting my name in one or two of these because it’d be amusing if they actually got used and I could brag to people about how I helped write this stuff.

    Technosmith: “The engineers who are the brains behind the creation of Brightsteel’s technology, and maintains its robot soldiers.”

    Alloyin General: “It is not the weapon which makes the man; rather, it is the man wielding it and using it to decimate as many armies as possible.”

    Spark Bot: “These robots have been nicknamed ‘Shockers’ among the Technosmiths. Why they were called that, no one knows.”

    Forgeplate Sentry: “Loyal, intelligent, and merciless. These are the traits that are installed into every single one of Brightsteel’s robot soldiers.”

    Ionic Warcharger: “The chivalrous soldiers of Brightsteel that always fight in the front lines; charging straight in without a second thought.”

    Tech Upgrade: “Even the most perfect soldiers could always use better weapons. –Keeyoung the Technosmith”

    Scrapforge Titan: “One man’s trash is another robot’s soon-to-be weapon of mass destruction.”

    Scrapforge Titan (alternate version): “Through science and magic of technomancy and steelshaping, this hodgepodge pile of scrap metal was given sentience, life, and a humanoid form.”

    Munitions Drone: “These scrappy robots provide support and supplies to the front lines of any war.”

    Matrix Warden: “They called Keeyoung crazy when he suggested to build a robot which repaired and upgraded other robots in the middle of war until they put the idea to the test.”

    Sonic Pulse: “Unless if you’re a half-bat hybrid, you’re not going to get out of this one easily without a broken eardrum. And that’s if you’re lucky.”

    Brightsteel Sentinel: “The best offense is a good defense…or was it the other way around?”

    Brightsteel Sentinel (alternate version): “These selfless, giant robot defenders continuously protect the city of Brightsteel with their nigh-impenetrable shields.”

    Scout Drone: “Small, fast, and easily mass-produced, these grunts of the Brightsteel’s robot army gather information, ambush enemies, and patrol the borders for any hostile movement.”

    Electro Net: “Works well at incapacitating humans, mutants, renegade robot soldiers, and magical beings comprised of water.”

    (That renegade robot thing might be a good idea for another Alloyin creature card.)

    Steelshaper Savant: “Magic and science combine to create the technomancy art of steelshaping.”

    Synapsis Oracle: “Mind over Matter.”

    Synapsis Oracle (alternate version): “Hand-picked individuals with strategic minds, these ‘Oracles’ direct orders to the countless battalions of Brightsteel’s robot army.”

    Scrapyard Titan: “One part at a time.”
    Alloyin General: “There’s not much difference between engineering and strategy. Both end with me standing over your corpse.”
    Echo Wisp: “Late at night, don’t follow the light. There’s always at least one more.”
    Magma Hound: “Man’s best friend prefers him well done.”
    Volcanic Giant: “The first things you feel are rumblings steps and searing heat. So are the last.”
    Scorchmane Dragon: “It hatches big.”
    Cinderfist Brawler: “A master of the one-two punch.”
    Uranti Bolt/Lightning Spark: “The difference between electrify and electrocute.”

      If you’re going to bother to write flavor text, at least use capitalization, and know the difference between “your” and “you’re”.
