About Legends...

Postby Voyd on Thu Apr 24, 2008 12:29 am

Hey guys!

Ok, pretty much what this is about is: Do you guys want me to start a new Legends, with the new regulars?
People who had characters before can keep their old characters if they want to.

This pretty much comes from how it's more interesting if it actually involves people who are active, instead of about ten old ones who never stop by anymore and only around five who are here to read it.
If you guys want the new one, there'll be less characters this time around (all the regulars who want to be in it will be able to, though. One benefit of having the forum a little quieter...); it's always a headache trying to get the list of all the characters and powers together, as there were plenty of npc's in there as well. If you want a new start over, I'd stop accepting characters when I finish the first installment (except under certain circumstances, which I shall explain if people want a new one), which would be more regular than, er... last time. Since I have been using my holidays to get up on homework for the rest of the semester, I'll have more time to work on it, and then of course, there's the mid-year break (yay!).

Anyway! If people want to know what was going to happen in the old one, I can always spill the beans (if everyone/majority want a new one).

Uhm yeah. That's pretty much all I wanted to say...

Don't lynch me?
If I told you I was innocent, would you believe me?

I love the old one, but it does feel a little stagnate, and confusing (what with the many many characters, lots of whom aren't even active anymore as you said.)

A new one would be fun. :D

I was kinda torn between keeping the old one and starting a new one, but your argument makes sense, and I suppose it wouldn't be as interesting for the new regulars to read, since they probably don't even know some of the older ones. I'd like to keep my character and powers the same though ^^ Make sure no one takes them!

And I'm curious about what you would've done to us in the old one, hehe. You can't just leave us up in the air after writing so much!

Wow I Didn't realize how much of us aren't here anymore. Kinda sad really. Hmm I do agree with Irish... but I am not entirely sure.


*sings* Don't cry for me Argentina..... :D

I just went to rampage to see if I could list of us, because we ruled with the highest post counts, but we are gone from the network now and the highest poster only has 540 posts :twisted:

I agree with you're argument for starting a new one.
Every time I look over the old one I get a bit confused because there were just SO MANY of us!
So yeah, New one, with the new people (I guess you could keep some of the old people in for old times sake, I know Kel and Neo still pop in every once and awhile)
I second snowy on keeping my character intact and maybe a little more alive XD


(on the note of where did everyone go: what every happened to Ebi?)

I forgot that predated you... For some reason I thought you were in it... I got you confused with someone else in it. I am not sure who.

Cerberus I think

all this talk of legends makes me want to do an RP, but I am sure there is enough of us.

Awww, you guys still talk about punishing that "other" place. That's so sweet :D

I did like the original Legends but it does seem dated with so many faces missing. Show of hands, how many people remember Sharron the Rose? Or Magarg?

However, as sad as it is that our numbers have dwindled, I would remind that in the webcomics world, we are probably as close knit as it gets. And the amount of people that have stayed is kind of the exception to the rule.

Also, you'd be amazed how many names just sit and lurk. I think they're just afraid to post or don't know where to. I've seen a few names again and again.

I really do need to get my ass in gear and finish the new form (I know- another knew forum) but I think my new one has the potential to be more inviting to newbies. Ya know?

Yeah Fox, I'm pretty new compared to most of you regulars. I've only been coming here for like a year and a half. I completely missed the previous forum even!

Ebi still updates on Devart, so I'm pretty sure she's still alive...

I remember Margarg and Sharron, but it took me a few minutes, haha
I.... don't know when I started reading ^^; other than it was a long time ago XD worth every minute

Hmmm... if the lurkers post then they'll have a better chance of becoming a character! Mmm, bribery :D :wink:

What's the new forum gonna be like, Moss? *all curious*
You were technically still alive... you were going to properly wake up in the latest (unfinished) installment, if I remember correctly... must go and dig up that old prophecy. *goes digging*

... what's up with some of the new smilies? o.0 I like the old ones better....


Anyway! Since... all of the votes have been for a new one (I was expecting at least one 'I hate you' purely for how long it's been since I last updated!), anyone have any preferences as to how many characters would be easiest to follow?


Found it! :D

When the witch lights the funeral pyre,
When the devout are devoid of hateful desire,
When the moon weeps for her stolen child,
And the stars fall, their light defiled.

When a fallen leader fights,
Once forsworn, now to enlight.
When an unknown enemy, bathed in blue,
Wrongly named, yet speaking true.

The band of outcasts shall together rise,
The betrayed shall break through their lies,
The worlds shall shift, the defiant fall,
The new order shall remain tall.

The witch shall douse the night fires,
The devout fly from colossal spires,
The moon lies slain by her one son’s blade,
The stars shall mourn; their light to fade.

The Age of Chaos shall settle,
The truth shall test the mettle,
The forgotten must stand together,
Else all shall fall forever.


Ahhh, good times :wink: :lol: ^^
Dude, I can't even remember what all of that meant... -.-;
Moss, were you ever able to get back that picture of Miri's character sucking the H2O from that guard? *ponders*
If I told you I was innocent, would you believe me?

I'm not REALLY sure what happened to the smilies.


Wow! That's a GREAT devination! I have to check if I know what all the means!

Naw, I admit I stopped looking for the picture after awhile :oops:
It may be on my other hardrive, but I need to buy a new cord for it. Same reason I never finished the poster with all the characters on it.

Still working on the forum:

Aw, we'll always stick with you, Moss! (regarding the new forum) You have a most awesome avatar.... *goggles at it* it's cool that you're two different people (kind of...). How do you become a 'registered' person? It says that I'm there as Voyd, but there's only you and your admin account as registered members...
Heeee... is it wrong of me to have a massive urge to go post there?

Should we try and encourage people to go to the forum by having a sort of 'orientation' place where they can ask questions/introduce themselves or something? I never use those though, I'm always a bit shy of making a new post and just going 'HEY HEY You will love me now'... does anyone else get that?

Heeeeeeeee ^^ if you aren't being sarcastic, I think I am flattered :shucks:

Is all good! I do that too, eheh ^^; whoah... that would be one massively cluttered poster O.O



Hmmm... must try to get at least a little homework done tonight... ^^; eheh.
You know when you have a list of all these little things to get done, and you know that if you actually sat down to do them, they'd take maybe an hour, hour and a half, but you just can't get the motivation to get it done? Yeah... motivation, where art thou?


ALSO!

With the new one (one being Legends... should I make a new name?), you'd be able to request your character to be taken out if you didn't like what I was doing, or you could just say 'hey... I wouldn't do that!'. I'll try to stay more on top of everything this time and ask people how they'd react to things and such more often :3 it's kinda fun to know how people would act in situations instead of just guessing... :shifty:
Anywho... also: this time I would really, really like it if people could make up character sheet-like things (even if you want your old character to be the new one as well...) so I could compile them and keep them around for references; just things like name, appearance (picture if you really want to as well), power and what you are (elf, faerie, etc... Moss, could we possibly beg off you a list of species-like things that we could pick from sort of thing? Sorry!), etc... it would just make it easier...

Hmmm, must dig up a folder to use for this (I love folders...)

Anywho! I will stop talking now :shifty: for now
If I told you I was innocent, would you believe me?

I thought you would like Runboard.

I don't remember how to become registered. It was either click on the email they sent or post on the thread. I went and posted to test that hypothesis, but I forgot to check and see if it listed me as registered before I did. :roll: my bad

I think some people would like an intro thread, but it may not get used either...

Oh Moss, do forget to check out Runboard extra. You can get there from the main directory. It can give you little tricks that allow you to do things like add music, changes titles, make marquees, link back to webpage, and so on and so forth. Definitely worth it. If you get too stuck I can somewhat help... I don't think I can do anything myself, not even as a mod... I don't remember.
