Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

i appear to have talked myself into a corner, wherein i compare christopher marlowe's two-play tragedy Tamburlaine the Great with Atlas Shrugged.

Atlas Shrugged is more than a thousand pages long.

    Just talk about how the equivalent tragedy in Atlas Shrugged is that Atlas Shrugged was ever written.

    I always wondered what Atlas was so unsure of.

    Atlas is an uncaring, apathetic douchebag

    Yeah I'm not at my work PC Ori but it seems a damn solid article to me, and I mean that in the sense that I wouldn't bat an eyelid if I'd actually stumbled across it on the site

    The only thing I'll say is that the latter half somehow reads better than the intro to me, and I think it's a pacing issue; perfectly coherent, but there's something comparatively bland about the statement period statement period approach. Of course I can see the problem with trying to fit something like that into the tiny sample size requested

    Pay off is fantastic though. Really gets going when the game itself is explored, which is exactly what you need and expect from a GMM entry

    P.S. Atlas Shrugged can be rattled down to "I am fantastic, if you agree with me you are also fantastic, let us abandon the pathetic masses who actually make the world work, hang on I'm busy monologuing"

    thanks, dude. you're a sweetheart.

    problem is, i need the bland setup for the payoff.. maybe i'll sleep on how to make the setup interesting.

    I know, and that's why I felt silly even bringing it up

    Because if you make it full of life and excitement then you're simply detracting from the finale and so you're defeating the object of the whole GMM thing and blarghblugablah

    I saw some of the Atlas Shrugged movie thread in D&D, and it's mentioned on some of the other forums I frequent. From what I understand it's supposed to be all about libertarianism and how great it is and how terrible socialism and the masses are.

    See that sounds much more interesting a story than one about terrible unwashed masses.

    That doesn't even make sense. If everyone were born with the same opportunities, it'd be Communism.
