i just didn't have anything to say that seemed worth it...


This. We can only say, "Splint, awesome update!" Before it starts to wear thin and seem false. So we're going to save praise for awhile, then surprise you with it when you least expect it. :P Keeps it fresh, although there is the downside of you wondering if your updates suck. :( Which they don't. Just saying.

This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. Please remain calm. This is only a test.

Would have been nice to know you guys read it at least, not that it really matters since there wasn't anyone around at the time. Usually I end up needing to explain something.

I'd also like to point out that awesome level writing is kind of our standard now. It's what we expect. If writing is bad, we'll say "this bites the big one, and here's why." if it is above the new standard, then we'll have compliments out the wazoo. But awesome writing is our new normal.

Don't say that.   I feel that might discourage people with low self esteem from posting... >.> Like myself, for example. lol    No, really, though - I enjoy reading everything everybody writes. Especially if it adds something new to the mix. :)


And how is Spearbreakers Doctor Who? :o    Mr Frog has a serrated disc launcher and sawpikes! (did I just spoil stuff for you? :-\)   Okay, though, let's see... If Mr Frog is the Doctor... Then Vanya is his Companion...    ....    Who's the Tin Dog?

In my free time: writing a script for a "Spearbreakers: The Movie" trailer. just for funsies. And I will read your recent posts when I have a bit more time online, Splint. Sorry I haven't managed to get to them yet. If you want to remake Vanya's Ballpoint outfit, go right ahead. I described it in-canon as you drew it. I really liked it. :P She was going to just wear the spy suit, but I liked your idea better. Plus, now she can take some crossfire (if she's lucky).


And on that note, no, Vanya isn't dead. I just needed a short break from the story while I came up with moar plotz and waited for Hanslanda to catch up... possibly. Hanslanda, are we still sending Urist in for Round II, or should I leave him out and rewrite, or should I just do it on my own? :\ (hoping your RL stuff is doing better now, btw)

Oh, and:
i just didn't have anything to say that seemed worth it...

not to me. lol   I like hearing the compliments. It keeps me going.
By the way, Hanslanda... Awesome ninja code. Are we going to start doing this everywhere and see how long it takes for people to figure out? I feel evil now... but in a good way.

Dunno where to go with anyting now for writing, and I plan on showing the drawings in groups of 3-4 from now on unless it's a larger picture. And you better share that script, I might do some voicing for it for fun if my dwarf is involved.

Add me to the list of potential VAs :D I, er, may or may not have been practicing for this sort of occasion almost every single night for the past several weeks. Possibly. You can't prove anything.

Granted, my terribly-shitty recording equipment and lack of any actual acting talent mean that we'd pretty much have to settle for camp value in that case.

Side Note: I think it'd be hilarious if Talvi voiced his own dorf as well, if somewhat-demeaning.


...Actually, I kind of unironically want to make this happen now :D Anyone here heard of Fobbies are Borange? It's a 'radio' adaptation of a SNES game called EarthBound made by some nerds at an EB fansite. We could probably do something like that; we don't really need visuals as long as we have good narration and background noises.

I'd love to be a voice actor. My specialty is accents.
And i got a marik impression so good, you couldn't tell me and LK apart.
As for sound effects, a good fantasy set can be found in rpgmaker xp, which i think i still have. Not sure, but i might. If not, well, a free demo provides all graphics, music, and sounds anyway.
In fact, if we don't profit from it, we can use just about any music or sound we want under fair use laws.

Yes. I think leaving hidden messages everywhere is extra fun. This way someone can find them and freak out thinking we've been doing it behind the scenes the whole time.

And I would still like to have Urist up for round two. And my RL stuff is about the same as ever, I'm just in like... A manic state instead of depressive like I was. :/ Probably got a good week of it before it comes back. And I believe I promised an update...

Kind of odd for Spearbreakers, but its just a side note on the journey to the Baron. So... Yeah. :P

@Xahnel:

Okay, so that's three volunteers now, and a workable idea for any sound effects that can't be simulated by banging household objects together. This may actually turn out to be doable.

On the off chance that this gets off the ground, it'd probably be best to upload actual samples of ourselves doing various lines so that we don't get any unpleasant surprises. I know I'd be pissed if I hired someone for their vocal services only to find out at the last minute that they sounded like me :p

Out of curiosity, how does everyone imagine my voice? This should be amusing...

@Hansie:

Heh, ninja'd :p  Also, the transparent text shows up normally on the Wii's internet browser. Just FYI.
    I'm not sure if I like the idea of hiding text, though...

Nah. Not if you don't want to. And I don't think it will happen very often, so there's that.

I'll work on a few lines. Good thing i have a couple of good microphones. One is from that old ps2 singing game which name i don't remember.
I think skype might be required for this. As well, anyone who records needs to be damn sure they can get loud. Pretend yelling sounds sooo stupid when recorded.
Another thing i learned in my breif sojurn recording audio for minecraft videos (didn't work out, never uploaded anything) is that microphones have a tendancy to pick up any little noise. So, silence your phones, lock out the pets, and make sure where you record is silent as a new crypt. If you have to, lay on the ground to avoid chair/desk/floor squeeks. Even the fan from your computer should be muted in some manner.

I have some, albeit flimsy, expierience with voice acting and a decent mic. And Skype would be handy, if only for transference of files.
