=Briefing and sample pages


The writer, in this contract called the "Freelancer" must write 10,000 to 50,000 words of creative writing world-building/lore in the style of a fictional Wikipedia article.

This article is a page with a title, containing at least 2000 words if a place and 3000 words if a zu’aan group. Each part of an article, a "section" defined by the larger header on the web page needs 500 words. The sections for the Wikipedia article (On places in my fictional world) are; "History", "Geography", "Plants", "Animals", while the sections for a zu'aan group ( a tribe/city of fictional sophont alien species) are: "History", "Psychology", "Culture", "Government", "Military", "Religion". There will be 25 total articles for the place pages and 16 total articles for the zu'aan groups per a given 50,000-word set.

The style of a Taerel article is clinical. No contractions or colloquialisms. Use formal language at all times. Use technical terminology. Be concise and readable. The Freelancer is writing a report on these places and groups in the world of Taerel as if it were a Wikipedia article. You will need to edit the wiki pages on a MediaWiki site. To edit MediaWiki wiki pages, click the "edit" tab, type into the screen and then click the "save changes" button once done. You are expected to follow the basic lore and the name of the group that controls an area or area that a group lives in. To find said the name of the area's controlling group or a group's controlled area, look out for a name starting with "Taerel:"
