Scriveners work closely with Casimir to craft and create content such as:
- Game text such as rules, flavor text, dialogue, etc, as needed by each game.
- Bestiary, Realm, and other lore details.
- Event informationals, promotional material, website content, etc.
- Flushing out current lore.
Scriveners should not be confused for game makers. They may work on or assist on a game if it is a large project, but Scriveners have their own projects and efforts that are independent of game teams. Scriveners have just as much opportunity as game makers to create original content.
Original content includes many things. For Scriveners, it may be stories, bestiary entries, comics, etc. For Gaman, it may be a board, card, video, or other game. For Schemas, it may be digital art, painting, sculpting, etc. For Seamsters, it may be warrior outfits, ball dresses, everyday fantasy wear, etc.
Any imaginative endeavor you present to the head of your organization (ex. Chief Editor for Scriveners), it is approved by them and The Grey Tavern, and is not an assignment given to you by The Grey Tavern is Original Content.
All original content for Scriveners must be:
- Editorially checked by Editors and the Chief Editor.
- Made in conjunction with a Lorekeeper.
- Reviewed for lore continuity after final edits have been completed by the editorial teams.
