**Artists Needed**

Castle Fire Games LLC still has an open slot for interested artists.

To recap, for those that may have not caught it on my last post, we are currently developing an MMO called “Koraiya Online” although that is just its current working title and will most likely change upon the release of the product.

We a looking to contractually add some artists to our team.  The responsibilities of these Team Members / Artistic Contributors would be that of 2D Line Art.  The coloring is not mandatory but is an asset.  This art could range in everything from characters, to potions, to castles, or even graphical spell effects.

No team member has to relocate.  You can work from the comfort of your own home, wherever you may be in the world.

If you or someone you know may be interested in our project and feel that you fit the bill, please drop me a personal message and we will discuss your skills, personal goals, and whether you would mesh well with the team I have in place.

Once again, thank you all so VERY much!



Developing an MMO at Castle Fire Games LLC called "Koraiya Online."
We are always looking for artists.  If you are interested, please contact me.

Hello everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post - I *REALLY* appreciate it!

I just wanted to make another announcement about the world we are creating at Castle Fire Games.

Namely, "Koraiya Online."

First, I should explain who "Castle Fire Games" is exactly.

We are a small indie game development studio.

Legally, we are "Castle Fire Games LLC."

We have a small team of 7 for now, but we are all working very hard and with a lot of passion on our first project, "Koraiya Online."

"Koraiya Online" itself is a "Steampunk Fantasy" Online Role Playing Game.

Humans have crashed their giant AetherCraft, "The Eden Star," into the planet "Koraiya."

The Steampunk technology they have brought with them into this magical world of Elves, Merry Folk, and Orcs have upset the natural order and the balance of power.

Now Humans are caught between a war of two factions, one of which you as a player will side with, and will help determine the balance of power server wide.

Our ultimate goal is to make Koraiya Online lightweight enough where mobile platforms can handle it.

So we have implemented combat to be turn-based and instanced.

Think of "X-Com meets Final Fantasy Tactics."

Additionally, as a **fantastic** milestone; at of the beginning of this month (October), our internal test server went online and we are scripting in it as we speak!

If you are curious about the technology, it is the same game engine, middleware & back-end, and servers that Star Wars: The Old Republic, Elder Scrolls Online, and a dozen others are currently using.

For old school Pen and Paper Role Playing Gamers - have no fear! The entire game is written based on dice mechanics. NO conversions necessary whatsoever!

Upon release, Koraiya Online will be free. Additionally, backers will receive the PnP RPG version for free in watermarked .pdf!

Which leads to... as of a few days ago, our Patreon page went live! =D

Please have a look! I really hope I sparked some interest with that *very* brief synopsis...

We truly and humbly appreciate everyone's consideration and look forward to more chats with you all in the world of Koraiya!

Art hates me…

Oh yes, it certainly does.  It snickers and jeers at me – laughingly pointing a finger at me and screaming "HAAA HAHahahahaha!!!  Look what you CAN'T do!!"

I have tried, and I have tried… and failed repeatedly.  I just can't draw.  For the past two and a half decades I have simply resigned myself to being a voyeur – green with righteous envy and spiteful jealousy at all the wonderfully talented artists that seem to surround me everywhere.  You BASTARDS!!  I want some of your talent DAMMIT!!

But this is a new day.  This is the day I give into the fact that I will never be as good as I want to be, but I will keep trying anyway.  This is the day I place myself up to public ridicule, and forge on anyway.

This is April 30th, 2011.

This is the day I start drawing.


Any submissions I have will be put up sporadically throughout time with no consistency.  My art "attempts" are determined by the fact that my job requires my presence every (yes, EVERY) day, I have an attention span of a squirrel, and I also have a full blown family to pay attention to.  So, if any of you actually like my craptastic attempts at art and are waiting for more, please be patient.  More is coming – I just don't know when.
Thanks, and all comments are welcome.  Just PLEASE make them constructive.  I ALREADY KNOW I SUCK!

- RF
