POLL OVER

Hello everyone, this is a poll for me to finally decide and pick which blurb I'm going to stick with. Please vote for whichever blurb you like the best, or whichever blurb made you decide to pick up the story. I'm really indecisive so I can't choose for myself. Thanks for reading!

 

Blurb 1

Born in a world of chaos, Salvos seeks to not only distinguish herself from the others, but to survive the constant bloodshed and death all around her. She will fight, she will learn, and she will evolve as she grows up in this harsh world.

Also— she’s a Demon.

—--

Salvos is a story about action, adventure, and evolution. It follows a Demon's journey from her birth and onwards as she grows and gains experience from encountering new things through the various lenses of her life.

 

Blurb 2

Salvos knew she was different from the moment she was born. She was indomitable. She was curious. She was always longing for more.

When faced with adversity, she would never fold. When met with something new, she would always learn. And when she crested to the top, reaching where none had ever reached, she would never be satisfied.

But that was not why she was special. There were others in the Netherworld— other Demons amidst the mindless masses who fought like her, who thought like her, and a neverending desire like her.

And yet, she still stood apart from them. She was still special.

Why?

Because she was a survivor.

—--

Survivorship bias or survival bias is the logical error of concentrating on the people or things that made it past some selection process and overlooking those that did not, typically because of their lack of visibility. This can lead to false conclusions in several different ways. It is a form of selection bias that can lead to the false belief that the successes in a group have some special property, rather than just coincidence.

Now the question is: why do some survive where others just as capable as them fail?

Is it hard work? Is it destiny? Or is it just chance?

...does it really matter?

Salvos is a story about action, adventure, and evolution. It follows a Demon's journey from her birth and onwards as she grows and gains experience from encountering new things through the various lenses of her life.

 

Blurb 3

The Netherworld: a hellish landscape inhabited only by Demons, creatures born from the dark abyss. It is a place of chaos, of anarchy, and of survival. In this world, a Demon is born; she will have to fight, she will have to learn, and she will have to evolve. And perhaps, eventually, she will leave this world behind for a better place. But... is that what Salvos even wants?
 
The law of evolution is the survival of the fittest, and Salvos is a survivor.

Blurb 4

To survive the constant bloodshed and death all around her, Salvos must distinguish herself.

A newly born demon must struggle to rise above.

She will fight, she will learn, and she will evolve as she grows in this harsh world.

Will Salvos be dragged back to the cold dark world of death?

Or will she grow and become more?

Blurb 2 and 3 has been merged to this. A vote for either means a vote for both now:

The Netherworld: it is a hellish landscape inhabited only by Demons, creatures born from the dark abyss. It is a place of chaos, of anarchy, and of survival. In this world, a Demon is born; she will have to fight, she will have to learn, and she will have to evolve. And perhaps, eventually, she will leave this world behind for a better place. But... is that what Salvos even wants?

The law of evolution is the survival of the fittest, and Salvos is a survivor.

—--

But what is a survivor?

According to survivorship bias, it is not someone who possesses some distinct quality; those who survive may be talented and may have worked hard, but others with the same qualities are often overlooked if they fail at the same task.

It is then chance that determines the survivor, and it is in this world of chance and probability that Salvos seeks to distinguish herself from the others and be recognized as her own being.

Salvos is a story about action, adventure, and evolution. It follows a Demon's journey from her birth and onwards as she grows and gains experience from encountering new things through the various lenses of her life.
