    you got it T4CT. make me a character!

    Stilts, you guys are somewhere in the stairwell between decks four and six. Dustin was at the entrance to deck 6, the door of which is propped open by a dead body. You would be where he was in a matter of seconds.

    Traits: [Animal Handling 15% (A)] [Honorable 15% (C)] [Sand Viking 30% (A)] [Machinist's Son 30% (A)] [Barbarous 10% (D)]


    Quorthon starts to yell obscenities in his native tongue. It's deep, guttural, and incredibly upsetting, the kind of noise that digs out a roomy hovel in your ears and hangs out for a while. While he's screaming, he climbs towards whatever ichthyological nightmare's closest to his choking hand.

    I have no idea what you are talking about

    I assume Quorthon gettin' bit and falling and the fish are making noise? I don't just wanna be poking around and then I turn around and whoops everybody's been reduced to comically positioned skeletons by flying ratfish.

    oh wait there we go, that's definitely some noise.

    thing in the top left is the hole Quorthon fell through, random scribbles are piles of rubble and scrap metal, squares are the columns supporting the ceiling. You came in from the bottom left.

    have you ever heard Danish?

    Danish is a very, very unpleasant language.

    Danish corrupted by an unknowable time in a hellish desert? Probably vocal genocide

    Corrupt Danish obscenities? The linguistic equivalent of an overflowing sewer stuffed with rotting meat

    e: to depressperado, i think

    wait so okay what exactly were you gonna do

    and did you take the bag with you or what did you do with it

    I dropped the bag at Regulus' feet, and pounced on the rat biting Quoruthon, wrapping wing-tentacles around its neck and digging their chitin-coated tips into its throat.

    Reg steps carefully through the chamber, peering into the darkness and running his hands along the rusted hulks of ancient machinery.

    Nothing of any worth in these, except perhaps as scrap. What could they want down here?

    He jumps slightly when a loud thud echoes around the chamber, followed by some loud, truly caustic exclamations, and looks towards the far end of the room.

    Reg calls out, "I uh, I think we should perhaps, be careful, gentlemen?" He cracks his knuckles and carefully picks his way through the rubble, heading towards the top of the vault.

    what's your paper about

    answering the question "was Socrates guilty of the crimes of which he was accused" using a number of ancient sources and also evaluated those ancient sources in terms of their quality, relevance, persuasiveness, etc.
    so as far as I'm concerned, easy as shit. it's only supposed to be 4-6 pages, I could do it in like two hours tops


    I just have a problem with starting my brain

    as for dichotomy

    remember: after you finish your paper, replace all your size 12 periods with size 14 periods. the dots look like they're the same size but it increases the spacing between the actual period and the first letter of the next sentence and can add like half a page to your papers

    maybe for your fancy-ass word processors it is



    but no really I've just never felt a need to inflate paper length because A. I am a wordy motherfucker and B. I had teachers in college who absolutely would analyze papers looking for that kind of thing and punish it severely

    If your paper is based on word count not length though it's pretty useless.

    Though back at secondary school I would have loved that.

    I think what you mean to say is the smartest

    in reality that was a joke and if i had to give my honest scholarly opinion i would say you should find a way to argue that socrates IS guilty of his crimes because it's probably going to be the less argue'd point and will stand out more in the professor's mind

    but c'mon the period thing is pretty witty

    my writing skills have always been sub-par at best, english was always my worst subject in secondary

    technical writing is the only area I do pretty well in

    but I'd like to think I've picked up some good habits by playing PBPs here (or at least been able to identify the bad ones)

    OK just to ask, are there any spaces in games available? Because I have not played a game in months and would rather like too, but if whoever is running is full up then I will of course stay out because running a game with too many people is a pain in the god damn ass.

    absolutely not.

    I intend the worldbuilding to continue through the entire game

    though obviously it will diminish the further we get, just because the only rule is, don't contradict anything already established

    and the more worldbuilding that gets done, the more there is to contradict

    even so though, stuff like minor details, elaborations of random towns, etc., will be things that I'll invite people to lend a hand in.

    I have a few preplanned story ideas but they're loose and malleable enough that I can adjust them to suit what people come up with

    in fact I already have!
