    Does that mean the wait fervently part of the application might end for a few of us?! *Waits fervently*

    I wonder if they're looking for artists too, or if they are already covered by the art studio that's been working with EX3's art director.

      The Feb 6 Monday meeting mentions this:

You can submit links to websites (he will not open zipped files or anything like that) showing work you’ve done as well as any messaging for Mike at this address: onyxpathart@gmail.com

            One thing I noticed was that the submission guideline page asks for commissions in .doc format, while the style guide linked from that same page insists that .docx is required ('no more .doc or .rtf').

            I really hope my .docx submission made it through.


            I thank the Devs for the great game of Exalted!

              Ah, that was from a few years ago. I updated it; everything should be .docx now.

              (If anyone's already submitted in another format, that's fine. )

                So...

                How firm is the word count limit? I'm 30 words over. Fifteen for the setting and fifteen for the mechanics.

                  Sounds like you can get some practice in cutting excess words

                    I figure that will be the answer, but I have to ask. lol

                    Edit: Managed to cut enough to meet the word count.

                      I mean, even if being 30 words over is normally a "no big deal" type of situation, there are probably quite a few people submitting right now. Look at it from OP's perspective. If they need to sort through a dozen or so submissions, an easy way to start is to look at how many words each submission is. If your submission is over, it might well get pushed to the back. You're getting off on a bad foot by not following the guidelines.

                      It's a job interview, basically. If the only difference between you and the next hopeful is that you went over wordcount and they didn't, who do you think has the better chance? You want to stack the deck in your favor.

                      My advice is just to go ahead and take another look through your writing, try to clean it up as best as you can (trust me, it can always be cleaned up further), and submit something that is within the guidelines. It can only help you.

                      If you would like any help trimming it up, I'm glad to offer my assistance.

                        I like to think that engagingly lyrical writing that is setting consistent is more important than strict wordcount quotas. What you submit will be edited in a work situation - it's very easy to edit down to wordcount, very hard to edit in narrative draw and magic.

                        But, then, I haven't been hired yet, so what do I know?

                          I was going to submit but then realized that I'm currently not good enough according to myself. So I didn't.

                          Maybe one day.

                            Don't trust your own judgment on writing. You are your own harshest critic.

                              I managed to edit it down to under 500 each.

                              Now to go through the style guide and see what I need to fix.
