Are you involved with text-based gaming? If so, whether your involvement is in mudding, roguelikes, interactive fiction, gamebooks, browser games or maybe even somethine else, please consider writing an article for Imaginary Realities.
Imaginary Realities is an online journal which originally ran from September 1998 to December 2001, primarily focused on mudding. It has been revived, and had published a new issue just recently, which you can find here:
Sure, if you can find someone else. You should just write it yourself, and not worry about your writing. I doubt many of us would claim to be good writers. Mostly I imagine people just start typing and things work themselves out.
Good morning. This is perhaps an odd question being taken at this time, but for whom are the articles? Players? Coders? Builders? People outside MUD world? Some articles to one of these groups, some to other? All articles to be able to be read everyone? Thanks! Viriato
I'm sure there will eventually be articles which you can point them to, but it would be pretty boring for the rest of us to read if all of them were targeted that way. Not to mention there is nobody offering to write the kind of articles you want. That said, if anyone wants to offer to write introduction to mudding articles, they'd be most welcome!
If you're wanting to write an article but haven't gotten in touch, please do. We have maybe three offers to write articles from non-editors, and those are not guaranteed articles. The number of offers we received for first issue were much more promising.
The article submission deadline is at the end of January, or around six days away. If you're working on an article, keep this in mind. If you still wish to work on an article, and can get it done in time, please get in touch.
We've already received two articles of around six offered. Unfortunately, there wasn't as many articles offered this time around, but if the rest of the articles pan out we should have enough for a reasonably sized issue.
