Hello Golfers. You may have noticed that we have been a little quiet here for the past month. Paul and Christian have been slaving away on their unique vision for the online multiplayer. I'm happy to report that we have just had our first internal test of the crazy new mode and there will be opportunities for you guys to help us with further testing in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
Today I want to talk to you about narrative. One of the best aspects of Vertiginous Golf is the rich world we have developed. While the major story beats are being handled internally, we thought that crowd sourcing the supplementary content from fans would be really rad so today we're throwing out our first community narrative initiative.
We're asking fans who wish to participate to write some front page material for the VG newspaper! You can write your articles about anything you think would belong in the crazy, steampunk world of Vertiginous Golf, as long as they are within the following guidelines:
- Headlines are no longer than 7 words
- Article body is no longer than 150 words
- No lewd or offensive material
- Optional to include a picture
Below you will find examples of the current news stories:
LEGAL BATTLE BETWEEN INVENTOR & PROPERTY MOGUL
The Supreme Court of Scudborough is to begin its legal proceedings between Edward V Frohlich, the Inventor of the Vertiginous Levitation System and Marcus Frederickson, the billionaire property mogul.
Marcus Frederickson claims Edwards levitation system, which is used to levitate plots of land above the Vertiginousphere and sell on to prospective Elites is illegally circumventing Scudborough's "Ground Rent" legislation. Due to Marcus's percentage share in land, this would entitle him to 90% of said Ground Rent.
Edward’s defense is based on the fact the land was purchased legitimately and due to the land no longer remaining in its place of origin, it is exempt from being subject to Ground Rent.
We will report on this as events unfold.
SEVEN HEADED DOG FOUND ON MOON!
A seven headed dog has allegedly been found on the moon says PESA Scientist.
Following the recent attempt to land an automated eye glass on the moon, which was thwarted by a rogue meteor earlier this week, Scientists have discovered imagery captured by the eye glass before it was blinded and slung out of orbit by a large particle of space meat.
Scientists conclude that the meteor and the blurry image of what can only be described as a seven headed dog are connected and people should look out for falling meat from space.
LOCAL MARKET FOUND TO SELL FAKE VEG
Penckington Market has been found to be selling fake cabbage. If anyone finds their cabbages are fake then the local fake cabbage police have urged the public to come forward and submit their fake cabbages.
Do not eat the affected cabbages as they can result in heavier flatulence than usual.
