Speaking of Mistborn P&P... Has anyone heard anything new recently? I poked around the Crafty Games site, and it's not on their production list.

We never intended for a system where everyone critiques everyone else, that's inefficient and doesn't scale. In the opening bits of this thread (eons ago, in RE time) all that us original conspirators asked was that you critique one or two AT LEAST, and if you had the time to go be a good neighbor, or follow up on a story you were liking especially, then go do those too.

With the current group at ~30 people, we should be fine as long as people take note of the stories being neglected and give them a little abuse (^ ^ ), as well as return to the ones that they find fascinating and give them the benefit of your scholarly knowledge. If our moderators see skewing in where critiques are being distributed (a story getting 1 review, while another has 15), then they should take action.

Names are getting to be a mean little sticking point for me. Each time I begin to use their names, people start freaking out on how they know each other's names. When I do a re-write of Ch1 I'll take care of that muck, I think.

Dani is the only one (other than Fuei) who knows how to fight at all, and yes, it's more 17th century heavy-fighting than fencing (my bad on using the wrong wording... ^ ^;).

I like beating up my characters (emotionally and physically), especially Fuei, because he can take it. So far though, everything (except Jordan cutting down the fence instead of jumping it) has had a purpose, though it seems more and more now that it needs reworked to make more sense.

What about the flashback in the beginning? I've gotten mixed feelings on that in my alpha group.

Christmas/New Years pretty much killed my past three weeks, which is why I haven't gotten much out in the way of critiques. Honestly, I don't remember being conscious for saying I was going to submit, but thankfully I was a few chapters ahead from my plane ride...

I'm sure the crit count will up soon, just breathe ^ ^.

I like it. The days I originally threw out were just kind of the first thing that popped in my head to get the point across.

Well, folks, here it is in all of it's oddity. I hope it clears up some of the issues you guys had with it ^ ^, but most of all I hope you like it and can be fair enough to give it a good ripping.

I'd like to do a Monday submission. I'm sending out Chapter 2, did we decide what to do about synopses?

I don't know about Schroedinger's cat, but I definitely want Schroedinger's Urinal - where you're both peeing, and not peeing at the same time. On the subject of modems and loss of connections, Schroedinger's Modem? BOM BOM BOM!

Damned cats...

Authors don't make spelling mistakes, cats boot up our computers in the midst of the night (or day, for us nocturnal folk) and sprinkle them in for the sheer sake of chaos! It is time for us as writers to rise up and commit felinocide!

I could see background getting out of hand, though. It's more or less of our introduction thread, and in all of our crazy bat-crap looney greetings are bound to throw stuff off the tracks and into crazy-crazy-chaosland.

Seriously, not trying to be a wet blanket, but utility threads should stay utility threads, lest we soon have no utility threads to use when utility is needed. ^ ^

This is an inappropriate use of the this thread... <.<

Maybe start one called 'Random Discussions'?

Trust me, I'm all one for thread-jacking at a moments notice, but some un-godly number of posts ago, I believe this was a discussion on Emails for, and dates of, submissions - both of which remain relevant as long as we're getting new people.

I officially thread-jack your jacked thread. ^ ^

Reaves, you submitted this a cycle too early, mate (unless you got permission...?).

Haven't gotten to read yet, but I noticed it was chapter 3. Does it have a synopsis with it?

Sprig did no truimphing, he merely confused and astounded them long enough for you kids to finally get your powers... That'd be an awesome superpower, the ability to confuse and confound people....
