Hello everybody! We have tons of new awards for the new year that can be requested through our Awards System thanks to Antifa Lockhart! Some are limited-time awards so go claim them before they are gone forever...
An average day with your best friend or suddenly your worst enemy. Perhaps you two set out on a quest to make the world a better place or compete in a childish rivalry or try to remember a promise you both made with each other and perhaps a mysterious third person? Endless possibilities
- canon or non-canon
- any world, genre or universe
- one shot or two shot
Thinking we should do a small something for this. Nothing too large, just a nice few posts, in case you're interested . . . old friend . . .
I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that! (=rereads roleplays in general, not just "Night of Fate") And yes, the quality of writing in that roleplay really did impress me. I think the early mechanics (deadlines, competition, plot progression) helped a little bit, but we also had some kick-ass roleplayers. I don't have any plans to repeat the experiment, but I thought it went swimmingly, at least for the first stage.
It does give me some ideas for a future Spurius project, however; perhaps Jim Barnham's Last Will? Let's talk about it on skype sometime.
It does indeed! Which reminds me (in a roundabout way) of something I've been meaning to share with you.
I don't recall if I ever mentioned the webcomic A Lesson is Learned, but the Damage is Irreversible, but it is often beautiful and surreal and wonderful. They basically don't update anymore, but I've gone back and revisited individual comics many, many times and have yet to become bored.
Anyway, that's not what I was going to share with you. The writer of the comics, Dale Beran, has a tumblr where he is slightly more active and occasionally posts essays on popular media, such as this one on The Dark Knight Rises that I enjoy very much, and this one on Interstellar that I have mixed feelings about. The second one is troublesome to me because it employs a lot of Freudian psycho-sexual analysis that it has always been my instinct to avoid like the plague. At the same time, I find the writing coherent, interesting, and often compelling.
I feel the section itself will ultimately be fine, it's just that most of the "hardcore" original rpers have either left or are fairly busy with real life. I'll probably start the R.E.M. reboot soon, if you want to sneak your template in beforehand, but I'm honestly limiting my roleplays to 1-2.
Also, by any chance, have you gotten around to reading the pms I sent you?
All I got from the Internet's opinion of it is that Billy Zane kills everything he touches. It's imo a piece of garbage (as I agree with you, most underhanded by Douche Bird Douchertaintment) Hoping a really good studio with a good budget picks up the WoT franchise in a manner similar to how HBO works with GoT, albeit with less butchering of the main arcs - the irony of the books being so thick with descriptions and etc makes putting them into film/television almost simple, as long as they literally filmed everything at the same time, and cut/release it over a period of years, etc, and call back actors incase they need to reshoot. The Shadow Rising through A Memory of Light is literally one giant arc with smaller arcs in between, the first three books themselves being their own arc due to Jordan's original trilogy idea thing thing.
Incase you didn't happen to see this anytime recently anywhere, share with me my hatred of television and production companies spoiling good things for the sake of "keeping the rights," like literally they could just sell them to HBO and we'd get something that's ten times more spectacular and better than GoT is even now
