  • Help Weavers to avoid cultural faux pas or insults (unless intentional)

Details

Credit: KingofColeslawThe Dragon Riders universe is home to 3 colonial systems filled with cultures which range from cosmopolitan to fiercely isolationist.  Because of the inherent isolation of colonies (most of which exist on space habitats or other closed systems), many of their cultures have become self-reinforcing and even extreme.

We’re looking for someone who can take existing cultures and sub-cultures and extrapolate them out to realistic future cultures.  These cultures may be only for color background, or may be used as proxies for current geo-political concerns.

Our exo-anthropologist must have extensive knowledge regarding current cultures, their origins and their possible futures.  You needn’t know everything, however.  A significant portion of the job will be working with members of various communities and cultures to create extrapolations that both represent the ideals of the culture, highlight the positive and negative aspects that will be important for stories, fill in details that give a story depth, and avoiding mistakes or insults.

Compensations

  • Full credit
  • Control over format and cannon
  • Full publication rights
