    No idea

    Three-act Play and Rose Brass took a lot out of me, to the point I’m not sure what if anything is left. That’s not to say I’m leaving or anything like that; I still pop on Fimfiction frequently, I still read stories, I still participate through comments or notes or the occasional journal post. I still want to finish the stories in progress or planned—but it seems I’m wrung

    Choice cuts 0: the original story notes

    Before Scampy and I even started on Three-act Play, we sat down for a marathon five-hour initial story conference. I boiled down the Discord transcript to a ten-page Adobe InDesign document—yes, I use that instead of a word processor, sue me—and generated a PDF file. In turn, I pulled the text from that PDF file, pasted it here, and cleaned it up a little. I abbreviated the three primary

    Finishing up Lectern’s: Fall Semester

    I really do need to finish the Ogres & Oubliettes game. As usual, the trouble I’m having is finding a narrative line. The only practicable thing to do is to string together a succession of vignettes, similar to the first installment, which means coming up with those vignettes. Spoilers ahoy!

    Pointless ruminations on Sunset’s flat, because I am an architecture nerd

    While reconstructing Sunset’s idiosyncratic living space, I realized it actually is laid out quite poorly. In no way, however, should that be considered a negative criticism of the art and animation staff! I have seen equally or more awkward arrangements in the real world, especially in older constructions.

Finishing up Lectern’s: Fall Semester · 7:00pm April 25th

I really do need to finish the Ogres & Oubliettes game. As usual, the trouble I’m having is finding a narrative line. The only practicable thing to do is to string together a succession of vignettes, similar to the first installment, which means coming up with those vignettes. Spoilers ahoy!

It will, of course, start in medias res with poor hapless Bergud—who is guiding the PCs not with a map, but with verbal instructions from his memories of what his deceased father told him—somehow getting himself accidentally reduced to ash or otherwise rendered very, very dead. Possibly he was acting as the group’s healer, lending added spin to the situation. This blindsides everyone, including or especially Sci-Twi. From there the group bumbles its way to the goal, but I still don’t have a clear idea what that might be.

Anecdotes I can adapt, and specific proposals for the chapter’s arc, are welcome! I already have a couple of possibilities for the former, but not a lot for the latter other than some vague suggestions in the original post way back when.
