      hi
      a question, you not working on new Campaign?
      1. Soul Reaver
        Soul Reaver
        No, not a Warcraft 3 campaign. I'm writing a gamebook at the moment, which I hope to make into a standalone game when done (or, if I don't manage that, publish as an actual book).

        The working title is 'Escape from the Depths'.

        Yeah, I saw that too. I don't think it's an intentional thing. "To the Bitter End" is just an english saying so others might have thought of the same thing.

        Pretty hard to mistake the two for each other anyway. :P

        Thanks for the suggestion. It's a pretty good song, but maybe a little too action-y.

        But the current song, while much more uncomfortable, reflects Fei's state of mind better - the madness clawing at him, the screaming, the sense of him having/being changed by an irresistible impulse.

        Even just the first few lines are perfect:
        "I beat my machine
        It's a part of me
        It's inside of me
        I'm stuck in this dream
        It's changing me
        I am becoming"

        Plus NIN has an important part in the history of the Multiverse tandem story - it was John Wilt's favorite band, is still popular with several senior members and deemed to be perfect 'character theme songs', so I wanted them to have a presence in the soundtrack.

        But don't get me wrong, I enjoyed listening to Corner (particularly the instrumentals) and I'm happy you thought of me to suggest it!

        Well, it's the main tandem story. We can't stop it just because one player left. It belongs to more than just one person. I just wanted to give such a long-standing character an appropriate send-off in the story, not have him anticlimatically drop out or slip away.

        Yeah, well, the result is pretty much the same. It's what also happens when actors get out of series.

        True, but it's preferable to him just not posting anymore without anyone even even acknowledging his sudden disappearance.

        At least this way he gets a climatic exit.

      Just wondering, is the story in To the Bitter End based off a roleplay?
      1. Soul Reaver
        Soul Reaver
        A sort of tandem story, yes, which has been going for many years, though it's a lot slower nowadays than it used to be. It doesn't really have formal stats/rules as such, and the different writers take turn being the "Battle Host" (ie, the DM). The current story is here: http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=569.40

        I see. So there seemed to be versions and sequels of the roleplay, I think?

        Interesting.

        It's more like an ongoing story, with a number of consecutive plot arcs. Starting from the very beginning up until now, they're named as follows (some names given later, since the first few plot arcs hadn't been given a name at the time):
        Beginnings
        Godslayer
        The Ancient Vampire Lords
        Chaos and Clutchfiend
        The Bonds of Betrayal (followed by Tranquil After the Storm)
        The Weaver of Destiny (followed by The Aftermath)
        Salt in the Wound, Part 1
        The Eye of Terror

        The participants in the different stories have changed quite a bit over time. I think now I'm the one one who's been there uninterrupted since Beginnings, which would make Soul Reaver the longest-running character.

        No, a place to download already made art. I don't have enough money for a custom-made piece of art for me.

        It kind of depends on what type of art you're after. Google is your friend: under the image search, under 'Tools', you can modify your search category under License to search for art "Labeled for noncommercial reuse" - that way you'll get a bunch of images that you can use as long as you don't make money of them, so that's an easy start.

        An alternative is to find an image that you like and ask the creator/owner if they would mind you using it. Again, it depends what art you're after. DeviantArt has a huge amount of stuff though the quality varies significantly (https://www.deviantart.com/). Personally I think the ConceptArt forums are full of brilliant artists (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/) but be aware most of them are there looking for work. That said, they might still be willing if you're asking to use something they're already displaying for free, provided that due credit is given. Won't hurt to ask as long as you're polite about it and won't be offended if you get turned down.

      Any plans for a new story or something :D?

      I'd suggest adding a fourth difficulty :D for lazy and retarded people like me.
      1. Soul Reaver
        Soul Reaver
        Probably no new stories, no. I'm busy working on a gamebook though - that'll be my next project.

        I might possibly revise the existing difficulties at some point, but it feels like a lot of effort to create a new release just for that. Maybe if I find some other bugs or things that needs fixing as well I'll also revise the difficulty for that bugfix release.

        About difficulties. You could, I think use upgrades or auras to increase/decrease (shift+double click for negative numbers) life, mana, damage, attack and move speed of enemy units. Or better yet, buff the heroes instead. It's easier.

        Not trying to be a smart aleck as I know you've got more mapping experience than me but just saying as a reminder. I'd really love a more relaxing version of this piece of art.

      Yay, got it. Thank you. Is there some tips for chapter 7 Eryon, each try he made a tripple lightning my morale broken. Will keep trying.

      P/s: Anything about his sight, it seems unfair. On default difficulty.
