Hi there! I'm your 4TW guide and I'll be showing you around.
This quick tour will give you a brief overview of each of our main areas: Write, Read and Play.
Let's get started with the Write.
4TW is a primarily a writing platform. You can write about anything you'd like.
We use the same file card and project folder navigation you're used to seeing around the web.
Click the NEW FILE button above to begin.
Go ahead and write some words.
They'll come in handy against a monster we'll fight later on.
Pick a Title, add some tags, select a color - make it yours!
Files you create are saved on the cloud and are placed on your Write page. Add and organize your file cards into writing projects.
Now that we've covered the basics of the Write section, let's move on to the Play!
Monster battles are the core mechanic of the game. You defeat monsters by writing a certain amount of words in the allotted time.
In this case all 3 monsters have the same requirements: write 50 words in 1 minute.
Select the one you'd like to battle.
Start writing! The 1 minute counter has started.
We've added in the words you wrote before, complete the missing words and make it to 50 before the timer ends.
Battle Lost! You ran out of time against WIGNOW LORSA ARACNI.
No need too worry, use this "Joker Flask" to rewrite time and win the battle.
You've done it! Monsters drop item rewards when you defeat them.
There are a variety of different types of items. Move through the options above to learn about each one.
Battle Items are equipped by your hero and increase your battle stats.
Attack items multiply your words for more damage, Defense items give you extra time in battle and Luck items increase your drops.
These swords have an Attack stat, move through them to see how many free words you'd get:
If you had 0 attack you'd get gain 0 free words for every word you write.
Craft Items are used as ingredients in crafting recipes. Find the right mix of items to create new ones or upgrade the ones you have.
Complete the recipe above to upgrade your "LEAF BOOTS" to ""LEAFSUNG BOOTS".
Lore (Special) Items are storyline items which advance the plot and unlock new area on the map.
Each area has a unique set of monsters, and missions to complete, on your quest to save the Valley.
Wardrobe Items are used to personalize your own avatar.
These items can either be crafted, bought or earned in special quests.

Prepare your project for Publication on the Read page. (Don't worry, this won't actually be published anywhere)
Choose a cover, pick a title and hit Publish when you're ready.
Look at that, your very own published project.
The Read page is a space where you can receive feedback and explore what other members in the community are writing.
