Benionin's Story Commission Workshop
« on: February 27, 2017, 04:31:29 PM »
Greetings, Infinity Warriors!

Sometimes, the humble LoreNinja needs cards. Sometimes, the world needs stories. When those two times coincide, amazing things can happen. So here's the deal: you can commission stories from me by trading cards.

The specifics:
Cards expected upon delivery of the story, rather than upfront. You'll have a chance to review the story before I post it. If you're not happy with it, I'll rewrite it before posting it on the forums.
Subject of the commission is to be decided upon by the commissioner (naturally), but I reserve the right to refuse to write on certain topics.
Each Legendary=1000+ words of story
Each Epic=500+ words of story
Each other card=250+ words of story
Plat or Gold Border=3x multiplier
Foil=2x multiplier
Alt-arts=3x multiplier

NOTE: All stories exceeding 1000 words must include at least one Legendary in the trade.

What I'm looking for:
Legendaries:
Any
Epics:
Any useful Epics
Other:
Miscellaneous premiums (esp. DoD), Star Trek cards

Current To-Do List:
Commission by TameRlane, indeterminate length
Commission by Belial12, at least 1000 words

I'm looking for Nysrugh the Insatiable, not Nysrugh the Hungry. It's a bad card, but I don't mind trading for higher than its value.

you did say mostly any in the epic category, so I figured it's worth a shot, besides, I don't really care about trading value, but in most cases Nysrugh the hungry is better than Nysrugh the insatiable

Shoot me a private message with a story idea and I'll see if we can't negotiate a trade. Once I figure out what you're asking, I can come up with an idea of how much I'd like. I posted the list of cards that I'm looking for more as suggestions to those looking to commission stories than as a hard and fast list of things I wanted (though the named cards are some that I'd like to finish out my collection).

In fact, I already have one commission where I was given a topic and told to write as much as I felt was necessary/wanted, and that the customer would negotiate the trade once I was done writing. That's also perfectly fine.

Yup. It's in the pipeline. I didn't pm you back because I was travelling all day yesterday, but it's definitely in the works.

Updated with a list of pending commissions and a new trading policy, also removing Karani and Nysrugh from the Epic wishlist.
