STEEM MARINES: Looking for Lore Writer / Creative Writer

in steem •  last year


As I promised you all, STEEM MARINES are looking to stimulate the market a bit. This is one of many roles that I will be hiring from.

To make things as seamless as and high-quality, I will be hiring for specific roles spread out apart.

This post is to reach out to find the person who will initially be doing the core lore, and Narratives that will be introduced to the community of Steemit.

Now, I know I was talking about contests earlier. I was not thinking clearly, and was hyped because of the massive success and embracement of our post earlier. I apologize to everyone for that. I do not approve of tasteless contests to get cheap work. I hope you guys can forgive me for that.

As such, this is how this process is going to work. By bidding. This is the optimal way to find the right fit for who will fill our Chief Librarian and Lore specialist.

This position will offer commissions per "Entry" into the lore that will be used.

What we're looking for

We're looking for someone who has no problem with working with a team. As for now, officially, the project just consists of me in terms of production. I need to be able to discuss things with you, and create think flows and brain maps.

As the Lore writer, you will be endowed the rank of Cheif Librarian within the community, so some minor social skills are great.

The STEEM MARINES are Custom Army that will be backed with real people. What we want to do is create a very interesting background story for this army, but leave major choices for the community of Steemit to decide.

Essentially, we want to have an interactive story that the Steemit community can take a part of and help decide what the current state of the Army is.

The Scope of the work

  • Every month, or weekly depending on pace of production.

  • I will approach you with A topic. Sometimes it will be very specific. Sometimes it will be a small range of subtopics.

  • Commissions will be based per "Entry".

  • A typical entry will be aim to be 500 words or less.

  • Completion time would be expected to be 20 hours per entry.

  • This will be a long-term project.

  • An entry will require organizational materials such a simple flowchart or brain map to summarize direction

Security Deposits are absolutely fine, but the max is 50%. Escrows will be absolutely okay. But only by a reputable member of steem. I will cover fees.


  • Extensive Knowledge on the lore of Warhammer 40k
  • Talent
  • Mid Level - English Grammar
  • Understand that your writing will be looked at by a lot of people

This is actually pretty open-ended. I know you talented people are out there looking for a chance to get in, or just a chance in general. Applicants will not be discriminated against if they have no background in writing lore. I don't care if you have 0 followers and came from nowhere, or if you have 9k followers. I also don't care what country you hail from as long as your writing is understandable. We will not discriminate.

What's most important is that you know your Warhammer 40k Lore to the last Primarch, and can write a juicy story.

Your Bid and how to apply

Now if you guys aren't familiar on how a bid works. It's basically an application where you decide how much your commission will be. This is the most fairest way a hiring for creative talent can be.

This bid will be designed in a way to showcase how the steemit platform can be used for hiring.

To bid, please create a post with the following:

Your Desired commission rate per Entry or 500 words.

I'd also like to see your talent at work. In your style of writing and within 200-400 words, create a short story

Timeline: Age of ending

Your target audience are people who have limited knowledge of current events of the age of ending.

**If you are selected, you will be granted the title of Chief Librarian of the lore, will have a model painted and incorporated into the steem marine arsenal. **

Additionally, all server bids will be upvoted full strength by me and @someguy123 and will be exposed to the other early supporters.

When your server bid post is complete, please post a link to this discord channel.

This is very much a work in progress, but I have a very general idea of what it will all look like. Everyday I'm hard at work laying the foundation of what could possibly be one of the coolest things that steemit has ever seen.

Whew, 40k lore knowledge is no small feat. You may need to reach out beyond the current Steem user base and perhaps bring the right person into Steem for the first time. We shall see!


You know, that's not too bad of an idea. Let's see if we can find someone in the platform, if not, I'll try at my local hobby store. They invited me to a facebook group which is cool.

I really wish I was good with words
Appreciate the opportunity tho!!

QUESTION: can anybody apply for the job, I mean the distance, country, believe???


Yup, the bidding process is completely independent of distance, country or belief.

Only thinks required are:

  • talented writer
  • extensive knowledge of Warhammer 40K lore
  • mid-level English grammar
  • relatively good social skills
  • Understand that your writing will be looked at by a lot of people

just read the part about bidding if you're interested, or know someone who would be.


Okay thanks, I have seen someone that writes good stuff!!!
Will definitely let him know bout this!

Talented people with extensive Warhammer 40K knowledge may be a challenge to discover in Steemit. Perhaps you could promote this post for greater visibility & even promote it in specialised online communities & forums. Cheers!

Interesting idea I hope your find people engaged with talent to write your story.

That could have been interesting, but I don't have the first requirement of Warhammer 40K, only a brief overview in some videogames.

I'm more knowledgeable of the StarCraft univers, Warcraft (not so deep of World of Warcraft), Lord of the ring and various LARP background, StarGate, starwars, a bunch of StarTrek and many sci-fi such as Fondation and Robots of Asimov, Ants of Werber, NonA from Van Vogt.

But I agree that your needs will be better served by a fan of Warhammer 40K. I could have creativity and original ideas but they wouldn't grab context of your world which is the escence for core fans.

Goog luck again with that "contest" ;)


Wow, that sounds really cool! I would 100% be your guy if you needed a lore specialist for Star Wars, but I'm afraid I don't know much about Warhammer. Too bad! Will you have any other posistions open soon?


I will be looking for a video editor very soon.

I will join this. It looks to be something nice to be part of.

This opportunity makes perfect sense
Pls can anybody of any age apply or does it have age limit? Also can newbies apply?


Anyone can apply. :D

love to read it.
thanks for your post

The criteria for selection is high tho


Well the idea is, you can't write an epic if you have no knowledge of the lore. Which is pretty much the primary criteria.

Your typical warhammer player will know the extensive lore and what's happening in the grand scheme of things.

The other criteria is basic stuff.

It means you have a lot in stock to tell the world. All you need are dedicated individuals who share a belive in your dreams and aspirations. I really do hope you find the very best. You doing real great @malicered. I know this is the least you can become. Keep flying!

Its an awesome idea with great opportunity for some unique in the platform it should be an often challenge because there are virgin potentials waiting patiently for great opportunity such as this. Thnkx

I love it and that ain't no heresy.

It means you have a lot in stock to tell the world. All you need are dedicated individuals who share a belive in your dreams and aspirations. I really do hope you find the very best. You doing real great @malicered. I know this is the least you can become. Keep flying!

This is a great idea, I am also a writer but still a student with a tedious workload. I don't think I match your qualifications now but hope I'll be able to do so in the nearest future .

waow this is really a great post have lots of information appreciate this post.. followed because i need such amazing personalities.. <3 <3

Haha warhammer's lore is no small thing. Really like how this is going.
Sadly, I am not so good with warhammer's lore so I hope there are other roles I can apply for in future.

wow... this really revolutionizes the gig industry. love how the bid is done. however, as interested as I am, totally not familiar with Warhammer 40K 😂 @malicered thanks for bringing light to #steemgigs this way

This is a big opportunity for everyone on steemit, I wish am given the post

Thank you for sharing this is a Good opportunity to anyone of us

Good idea! Tell me please, and what the topics will be covered?
P.s. Cool, that already on Steemit appear "jobs")

I love making short stories. In fact in is one of my hobby. I am also into poem making. I can work with a team regarding creative writing. Open ended stories is fun to do. Being stock at home for 11 yrs, writing was may resort to manage my worries. As I read your blog I really got so excited. But I have major problem about this. I am not familiar with Warhammer40K. If can give me a chance to know this game I am more willing to contribute in writing a story based on this. Thanks @malicered for this very exhilirating activity. This is my 6th day on steemit :)

Well I would love to be a part of this though I need some research on "Warhammer 40k lore" as I don't know what's this. But I will spend time to know this.. Great initiative my friend.. Your help in knowing this will be really appreciated....

am sure i can do this

Darn, I didn't even know what Warhammer 40k was. Not geeky enough apparently!

Great project! I also never heard of Warhammer 40k. Hope the search goes well and you can fill the position soon. All the best and a great kick off!

nice interesting.. 😊

I would love to be a part of this team
