Why the hell would they fight in an open field? That makes it less likely that elves will get torched in thier stupid tree houses.

Because I couldn't remember what elven cities are called on the map.  Now that I can check the wiki again (sister was hogging all the internet bandwidth we have at the time) I know that I should have left it retreat as it was instead of changing it to glade.

Edit: In a fit of irony, I forgot to type the word remember.  Fixed now.

I don't think we should count on NCommander coming back anytime soon. Maybe skip him?

I think Spearbreakers II should have a limit of 6 reserved turns at a time. A lot of succession forts I've seen end up bogging down halfway through under a flood of people who signed up on an impulse months prior and had since become busy, lost the urge to play, or vanished outright, yet are still given 2 days to respond just in case.

Yeah.... Any takers then? because he was a little abrupt with the disappearance.

EDIT: New poll up, I feel it needed due to the disturbing trend of skips and disappearances.

Sorry for the abrupt disappearance... I guess you could say I'm back. And welcome back, Jack Magnus. We'd been wondering where you went.

About backstory: Definitely, definitely backstory first. I have a backstory for almost every single one of my characters... even characters that only appear just briefly and then never show up again. I usually do it in this order:
1. Decide what I want the character to do
2. Come up with a backstory that realistically allows him to do it
3. Expand the backstory to develop his personality and give him little quirks
4. Write him in when I get to it

For example, Lydena, who only showed up in a single chapter:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Sudden war between Spearbreakers and Swordthunders. Researching the latter now.
Why would they go to war? I'm confused... Are they even in the same universe? This is one of those ideas I'm iffy about, and I'm a little glad ThatAussieGuy vetoed it. Spearbreakers itself may not stand alone, but at least it's in its own universe.

My apologies to everyone who has not had a turn, but I agree with turn reorganisation.
Agreed. I didn't like skipping Lolfail, but a reorganization is necessary.

Story post soonish. Sorry again for the huge delay.

Shameless second post for bumping purposes. I'm currently working on the rough draft of 57, so there's more where this came from. I'll try to keep them coming at a more regular pace.

I think I'm going to have to ask to be skipped. I've had no time to catch up on the narrative and shit, and while I can probably find time to play my year out, I doubt it will mess well with what's already written.

Talvi; something you might find interesting/amusing; when I was three a drunken hairdresser cut the tip of my right ear off. :P

Just the very tip, so it healed pretty quickly, but I remember that it freakin' hurt. Still got a scar there, and a gap in the cartilage.

If you'd rather not go then that's alright. Since reorganization seems demanded, you can apply for a turn when you have the time and you're all caught up.

EDIT: I would like to ask if anyone objects to my taking the helm to get us moving again, despite how short a time it's been. I only ask due to recent mixes of RL issues, technical failures, and disappearances constantly interrupting our turn list.

My computer can stomach the load, and as I have no pressing matters besides homework to do, I humnbly ask of you, the citizens of Spearbreakers, let me take charge once more. For the sake of progress.

Goddamnit it was a joke I commented on NCommander being crazy enough to sign up for both Spearbreakers and Swordthunders at the same time and getting both his turns at (give or take) the same time. Doesn't help that as I said in that post that I was half asleep and probably made it sound more serious than I intended.

The book can crush skulls, and the coffin grows ever stronger and now that is has a few dead dragons in it, it sends people flying a mile backwards to explode in a pile of gore. Gore which I then place into the coffin,

If it means progress with the fort itself, I'd be willing to start sacrificing virgins.  So yeah, I at least vote go right ahead.
