Atlus has a totally awesome contest going on right now to help promote their upcoming RPG Etrian Odyssey II. Basically you write a story or something and if it’s good you win the 3-disc Etrian Odyssey II soundtrack. Seems pretty rad, I’d love that soundtrack…If your interested, you can go here and participate. My story would be all:
You see a really big and scary dragon in the woods. You are scared. You turn to your party members Greg, Robert, and Liz and are like “Uh, I’m really not sure what to do in this situation. I think we should run.” Greg is like “OK” and Liz agrees, but Robert is stupid and decides we should fight the dragon because we have many fighting abilities to beat him.
Robert casts “Find cheap deal in Best Buy ad”. “Find cheap deal in Best Buy ad” misses Dragon A.
Greg casts “That girl looks hot except her [insert body part] is messed up”. Greg’s attack fails, Dragon A is male.
Mike puts on “Old lacrosse shirt”. Mike gains 1 armor.
Liz drinks a wine! Liz gains 50 HP. Liz’s status changes to slightly drunk.
Dragon A crushes you all.
Never trust Robert.
I only make fun of Robert because he never reads this. Actually, I think this is a good start to my real life RPG starring all my friends.
This blast is all about Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard! We’re launching a new contest for all you aspiring storytellers, one we’re sure fans of the Etrian Odyssey series will get a kick out of. We have also formed a Facebook page to better shamelessly promote the game:
Atlus would like to present a world that ACTUALLY ends with you (coincidentally, it begins and continues with you also). The Storytellers of Lagaard contest offers Etrian Odyssey fans an opportunity to work together to weave a beautiful narrative tapestry. For example:
“You see a bubbling brook. Your parched lips tremble from the promise of sweet, refreshing rejuvenation. What do you do?”
“You drink from the brook. As you rise from the ground, an FOE leaps out from in front of you. The creature has ambushed you!”
Why participate? Well, the best contributor (as judged by us) will win a free copy of the official 3-disc soundtrack to Etrian Odyssey II, featuring all of Yuzo Koshiro’s score in both the in-game DS versions and his PC-8801 working versions!
