Hmm... Okay, now that that's done, how 'bout a little trivia?
The story is 1,370 words in 14 paragraphs. It was written in Microsoft Word in new times roman size 11 font, and takes up just over two pages there.
I am not a member of the Savages, and I don't plan to be. I wrote this upon request by the Savages leader, Renatoboy, as per what's mentioned in my signature. This story is partially what he outlined for me, and partially improv by me.
I went for a documentary third-person style, of the really old-school variety. The impression I was going for would be like some sage writing this up in an old library to summarize years of study.
The characters named, Rentao, Annatires, and Quasadcov, are references to Savages leader and sub-leaders Renatoboy, Antarus, and Qscdv respectively. They are not supposed to be exactly the same though; I figured I'd leave it up to them to maybe have their current Cube World characters be descendants of these characters.
The name Leiria for the territory was chosen by Renatoboy; it's the name of the town he lives in. The named kingdom, Elsith, was just completely made up by me and is not an intentional reference to anything.
My own personal opinion? Biased, because I'm the writer, but... I look back at it and I feel a little underwhelmed. I did at least have fun though.
Now, I'd really like it if everyone who responds is completely honest. I wrote this for practice, and in the long run brutal honesty will help me a lot more than sugar-coated attempts to protect my feelings. Besides, I think I'm mature enough to handle criticism without breaking down.
