Doozer Do

This page is a good resource for a game that's in alpha stages. It allows the community to work together to crowdsource projects that need doing to get the game out faster.

New Doozers need to speak with Staff about getting their own sections. Or if they are comfortable with Wikidot code, they are welcomed to insert it themselves.

  1. Let Staff know that you'd like to help out with descriptions and would like the password for the wiki so the following can be done.
  2. Make a Wikidot account.
  3. Join the Dawn's Early Light Wiki using the big "Join the Wiki" button on the home page with the password you were provided.
  4. Look over the Needed Lists below to decide where you can help.
  5. When you pick the things that interest you, only choose a few at a time, that you intend on doing within a few days. Please, no more than 5 items should be reserved at the same time.
  6. On the chosen pages go to the bottom of the page and click the TAGS link next to the FILES link at the very bottom of the page.
  7. Put an * next to the wip subcategory tag. Ex: wip:desc, so it looks like: *wip:desc
  8. Include a new tag that's wip:name. Ex: wip:boobear. This lets everyone know that you intend to do the desc so there's no toe stepping and multiple people doing the same thing.
  9. Save the tags.
  10. Do the work, preferably using a word processor of some sort that will help you with typos and grammar.
    • Grammarly is a free add-on for Firefox and Chrome, and it's really helped Boo out. All you need is some text box in the browser to use it.
    • Towards the bottom of this page are Mad-Lib Templates for Descriptions, Relationships, and Biography. They can be used to get the wheels going.
  11. When the work is done. Put it into a +request. Put all descriptions or info for one thing/location/person into one +request. Please use the formatting in the example below for descriptions:

+request DESC: <Name>=<wikilink> %r%r<submition of descs.>

For example: +request DESC: Starry St. - Starry Sept=http://oldtownmush.wikidot.com/location:b-4-3 %R%R EXTERIOR DESC: %R%TThe exterior of the Starry Sept is magnificent to behold with its… %R%R INTERIOR DESC: %R%TThe smell of incense and the sounds of softly murmured prayer fills the air of the Great Sept of Westeros. …

Doozer Description Dos-and-Don'ts

In an effort to keep things uniform in appearance even when having so many different people working on the description here are some Dos and Dont's of Doozering.

  • Do not use 'you' or 'one' in your descriptions. This is called Meta-Descing and is not the style of describing used here.
  • Do not use what is known as 'Tour Guide' style of describing. Example: Through the front door is a large sign that says welcome, moving on into the living room to the right of the entry there are several stuffed chairs.
  • Do present a description of it as if it was seen from any and all angles and spots. Like what some gaseous form would see from any spot in the location. Directionals or lean into more vaguery like west, north, east side of the room or on the far side of the room from the entry instead of instead of, to the right of the door. Because right and left become rather confusing, is it left of the door with it in front or behind you if you are standing at the door? Etc.

Templates

Through the Building and Doozer-Do process, there is a lot of just filling in things or updating things. Below are some templates to help with this a bit:

Wealth and Realty Levels

Below are the levels of Wealth in Oldtown MUSH along with a descriptor of who might typically be at that level and wherein the city those of that level can be usually found.

  • Destitute: Usually denizens of the Undercity in Oldtown. Those with this level of wealth do not get housing, instead, they can have a Tent/Lean-to/Crate objects to live in. Beggar's Ghetto or the Undercity itself is the place to drop these objects. A destitute person has no constant or stable income.
  • Poor: Ragpyker Wynd is the area for those who are poor in Oldtown. Farmers, Laborers, the real physical jobs usually pay enough for a Poor person to survive, but it's often not a pretty life. Sometimes a few different poor families live in the same place to make ends meet. Least it's not the Beggar's Ghetto.
  • Comfortable: Craftsmen, merchants, servants to noble houses and that level of profession tend to live comfortably. They can afford a home in Oldtown Square, or maybe are lucky enough to be given a servant's room at their noble's home. For a noble to be below this level of wealth they have truly fallen on hard times. This is typically the lowest level for nobles to be at.
  • Wealthy: This is the richest a member of the smallfolk can get! Courtesans, Master Craftsmen, Guild Leaders, the cream of the crop of the Smallfolk. For the nobility, this level is what Comfortable level is for the smallfolk. Sphinx Street is the neighborhood for the richest of smallfolk, and nobles that care for a more austere area. Minor Houses often have this level of wealth. The only Great House to be a bit tucked out of the way in the Whispering Wharf area is the Greyjoy Manor.
  • Rich: River Road with its views of the river and the space for gardens and courtyards makes for a luxurious area for Rich Nobles to live and shop. Major Houses often have this level of wealth. Because noble houses must pay the Citadel to earn a Maester assignment, this is the level required for a House to have their own Maester.
  • Opulent: Houses like the Lannisters, Targaryen, and Tyrells, never need concern themselves with how much things cost. The Great Houses of Westeros nearly all have sprawling estates on Beacon Boulevard in Oldtown. Or for the Hightowers, Targaryens, Tyrells those three take up entire islands in the Honeywine River off of Hightower Bridge.

+++ Grand Bedchamber

The grand bedchamber includes an antechamber off of the entrance. A full sitting area with thickly padded wooden furniture positioned around the parlor with iron-bound wooden doors that come to a point at the top of the arch. Decorative carved stone frames the doorways and the similarly shaped windows filled with diamond-shaped panes of glass in lead. Thick <color> tapestries are draped over the windows and in the few archways within the chamber. Intricate, thick and soft rugs are laid out as room centerpieces and pathways over the <stone/hardwood> floor. A few nooks in the parlor house places for armor and weapon stands, or for the less martial nobles, art, and bookshelves. Oil lamp chandeliers and sconces provide light during the darker hours in every nook and cranny of the rooms. A few fireplaces with the same decorative stone edging as the doors and windows provide plenty of warmth and comfort during the colder days.

The bedchamber itself is massive with plenty of carpeted open area around the large four poster canopy bed that can easily fit five people on it. A wooden throne with a secret compartment to hide the hole and chamberpot below it away from sight and smell is positioned behind a privacy screen. Attached to the bedchamber is a smaller room that houses a year's worth of wardrobe for two nobles. A vanity in the closet is also available, covered in perfume and cologne bottles and stands and racks for jewelry that's been laid out for a coming couple of days.

+++ Maester's Chambers

The small bedchamber for the House Maester is still quite large, enough to have a sitting and study area with a couple of pieces of thickly padded wooden furniture positioned close to the entrance with iron-bound wooden doors that come to a point at the top of the arch. Decorative carved stone frames the doorways and the similarly shaped windows filled with diamond-shaped panes of glass in lead.

+++ Study

The large study has enough space for a centrally located decoratively carved large desk upon a plush beautiful <color> rug over the <stone/hardwood> floor. With an iron-bound wooden door that comes to a point at the top of the arch. Decorative carved stone frames the doorways and the similarly shaped windows filled with diamond-shaped panes of glass in lead.

+++ Library

This House has dedicated an entire room to house its collection of tomes, books and scrolls. Large wooden shelves filled with knowledge are organized by genre or subject and create a tidy maze in the center of the room with a large aisle down the middle. At the end of every shelf is a built in desk and padded desk chair for quick study. Comfort is not the top priority of this library. There are other rooms in the house a book can be taken for a more comfortable reading experience. Every precaution to the preservation of the books has been taken. Pointed arched windows filled with clear diamond shaped panes in lead are positioned just right so that their provided light does not fade or harm the items on the shelves. Thick tapestry drapes also help to manage the damaging light.

+++ House Sept

So pious is the House to the Faith of the Seven that a private sept has been dedicated in this room. The sept itself is a seven-sided room with a statue on each wall dedicated to each of the Seven; The Father, Mother, Maid, Crone, Smith, Warrior, and Stranger. The floor is carved with a seven-pointed star and there is an alter under each of the statues. A pulpit for services is in the center of the star while the attendies circle around it using padded pews and kneeling stools.

+++ Godswood

While the weirwood trees are extremely rare this far to the south, this does not stop this House that worships the Old Gods from having their godswood. The heart tree might not be white with red leaves, it has the carved face like it's ancestors in the north. It is just as sacred to the followers of the Old Gods as any weirwood. Several places around the heart tree are manicured for meditation and prayer. The other trees in the godswood keeping the heart tree company are also very special and careful tending is given to them as well. Pathes between the trees are a bit more wild than other noble gardens. The North is a place where its people make their own way and that remains the case even this far away from home.

+++ Walled Garden

The walls around this garden are of <color> stone, matching those of the manse. There's a meandering flagstone footpath that runs amid the flowerbeds and blossoming trees, a small fountain set in the middle of a clear pond is near the center of the garden. Several pieces of statuary are tucked away amid the greenery. Large <type> trees provide shade throughout the garden. A few stone benches make the best of those shaded areas. Each bench is flanked by a large flower filled urn.

Along the side of the house where there's a door into the kitchen is a vegetable and herb garden. Tucked away on the other side of the manse is a small personal forge with a covering allowing the forge to be worked in most weather conditions. The rest of the side yard is dedicated to martial practices, including a couple of dummies and archery targets.

Near the back wall is a small stable, also of <color> stone with a sunset-red tile roof to match the manse. It has four stalls and an enclosed corral to provide space for horses and any other livestock to stretch their legs a bit. Built into the side of the stable is a coop for birds of prey on one side and chickens or other fowl on the other.

+++ Large Bedchamber

The large bedchamber is only large enough for a bed that could fit three with side tables flanking it and a trunk at the foot of the bed for the occupants' possessions. A couple of chamber pots are slid under the bed to keep the unsightly things out of view. The wooden door, which is a simple non-decorative thing, has a lock for privacy and/or security. A few candlesticks on the wall and on the side tables provide the flickering illumination during the dark hours. A pair of wooden framed windows with worbbled bubbly glass panes allow outside lights in; But not very clear viewing outside the second story room. A simple woven rug provides some softness to the hardwood floor. The small fireplace in the corner is relied on to heat this room during the colder days.

Below is a bit of code for those that find it difficult to churn out a description of their character. With all of the character's, I've ever made I find this sort of boost helpful and decided to offer it to the masses with the hope that it helps everyone. The Descs themselves aren't perfect, but they are just truly supposed to be an inspiration that is manipulated into a final more personal product.

Just copy and paste everything (I know it's a lot but when it's done it's not all that much at all, the options just inflate it visually at first) in the box below into the section on your wiki page for Description. Alter what comes after the ='s picking one of the many many many options I've given or put on your own! This will provide a base, two-piece outfit, and dress/gown separated descriptions. Things such as scent/perfume, tattoos, scars and makeup lines can be attached to the base desc if you prefer, where you prefer. Only fill in up to the accent= line if you only care about the base desc and don't want to worry about the outfit parts.
