Would you mind if I used one of the icons from my homebrew codices?

I wouldn't mind at all! I look forward to it.

Be sure to include a link (for those who haven't seen it yet). :tu:

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

...eh, it's alright. Not among my better work, to me at least. As others have said: this was a difficult challenge.

 

 

Step forward Scourged and Teetengee to claim your rewards!

Well... that'll teach me to doubt my own work again, heh. biggrin.png  Thanks for the award, and congrats to Teetengee as well! Now then, off to my lair to see what fun I can whip up about an Icon of Flame, or something equally Tzeentchy.

In case anyone is interested in writing about any of the icons from my homebrew dex (which I can't really take full credit for):
Tzeentch

Khorne
Nurgle
Slaanesh

 

(Each of the 5 codices also has a relic banner, if that piques your interest)

NIce work so far, all.

 

So, I'm sitting down to write for this week, already full of ideas, but I find I'm having to do research... not just on icons and other various things, but on my own works. I've written so much, and I've kept it all so interwoven, that I can't keep track of it all in my head anymore. Thus, rather than start with the story today, I'm actually spending my efforts first on creating a Primer for myself to keep track of everything.

 

Any of you find yourself in similar situations? How do you all go about keeping track of the vast wealth of fluff you've all created?

I found writing a Liber article (mine is here) really helped me. At the end I try to keep the links to IF articles up to date but, doing a new one pretty much every week, I know it's behind. I'll try to update it in the winter holidays.
Now I think about it, I'll add a simple list of names marines so far and their units/former companies. That'd help me keep track.
That and a basic timeline helps a lot.

To be fair, I try my best to present things as reports and similar mediums that can be falsified and doctored to fit in with Loose Canon. Also, considering Escharon has a copy of his journal from the future, even the things that have happened are occasionally subject to change...

Personally, sitting at a desk with a computer seems like work to me, boring work at that, so instead I type my entries into the basic notes app on my phone, while I'm wrestling grizzly bears underwater, and doing other less work-like activities. (This is the cause of all grammatical errors, the original writing is always flawless, really :) ) I created a folder for this purpose, which sorts the stories by date. I then try to use descriptive titles for each story, not necessarily titles I use when posting, but titles that remind me what the story is about, like "The tattooed girl", for example. After I completed my first story arc, which included about 10 or so entries, I wrote out a little story connecting the disparate entries together and placed it in the sometimes barren wastelands of the fan fiction sub board here. http://www.bolterand...m/#entry4062505
This was really fun, the stories were all vaguely connected in my mind, but since each week's topics covered such different subjects, I struggled to show the connections at times.

Another thing that has helped me out was the way I started the background for the Black Maw. As I fumbled through my first attempts at anything artistic since finger paints and elmers glue, I came up with little 1-2 paragraph blurbs for each model. A little bit of grim dark backstory that has helped with the narrative experience. All of these bios are also kept stored on my phone, which has been helpful.


In any event, Like Teetengee said, contradictions aren't that big of a deal with this setting. In fact, being devoted to the Great Schemer, I would expect more contradictions in your writing.

Oh, you cheeky devil, you! I do love utilizing contradictions in my descriptions, just not plot, heh. Besides, for all you know, I possess the greatest of Tzeetch's powers: the power of the retcon.

 

Anyway, thanks all for getting back to me on my casual inquiry. I just may borrow/steal/reuse your ideas for myself. I did finish my primer, which was fun, as it meant reading all of my past work (and remembering ideas I have long forgotten!). Now to touch up the rough mess that is this weeks submission. Huzzah!

It's been a busy week and it's not over yet, so I can't update the thread now.
Hopefully tonight or tomorrow night.
The Chaos Icons challenge is, however, hereby ended.
The Chaos Objectives bonus challenge is, like the Daemon Forge it's linked to, open until Sunday.

med_gallery_63428_7083_113631.png

 

Thanks to those who entered this week’s Chaos Icons challenge.

 

MaliGn gave us Chapel of Infernal Totems, describing the reliquary of no less than thirteen of the Word Bearer’s icons on Sicarus, dedicated to the Four and Chaos undivided. The ritual pairing of the icons to their bearers, that some bore scriptures from the Book of Lorgar (I particularly liked that none were complete) and that dark apostle Carnak himself had an icon were all great points in my opinion.

 

Old Dothan’s Work was Teetengee’s entry this week. A fantastically disgusting tale of the creator of a Nurgle icon. I’d rather not say too much, rather I simply encourage you to read and enjoy it!

 

Carrack’s entry was Of Saints and Angels. I loved the remembrancer’s mistake, for starters. And it was good to see the Black Maw in combat once more. This Wanderer is most interesting and I hope we’ll find out more about this foe soon.

 

I gave you the tale of one of my warband’s most showy captains and him being rewarded with an Icon of Excess by no less than a Keeper of Secrets who knows the captain’s most dark, hidden truth.

 

And Scourged gave us `Burning Angel`. Fleshing out the Scourged’s 7th company, devotees of the Weaver of Fate. It was excellent to read about Sinschal’ul Bhuramas again and this time his conversation with an Angel of Redemption getting just what he deserved sought...

Truly evil.

 

Our winner this week?

To be honest it’s hard choosing. Some were better written than others though all were well written, with -to me at least- the right taste. Conveniently we had one of each icon too (if I may count MaliGn’s as an Icon of Vengeance) biggrin.png

Part of the reason I have not posted this update is that I have simply been busy the past few days, and another part is that I’ve been mulling over a couple of things. The first is how to judge this week’s IF.

Do I choose that one...or those two...three?...just give everyone an Octed Amulet...? I very nearly gave none, because winning these little things isn’t the reason we enter IF every week, is it?

But, as Christmas is but a few days away...

MaliGn, Teetengee, Carrack and Scourged, you are hereby all awarded Octed amulets. gallery_63428_7083_6894.png

 

 

And here ends the bonus Challenge: Objective Counters.

Sadly only myself and Carrack entered. sad.png

Carrack, I love Gelidis! biggrin.png

Another Octed Amulet for you.

gallery_63428_7083_6894.png

 

 

The other thing I’ve been mulling over is how to do the judging for IF in 2016. I’m not happy with simply judging it myself, so I thought of a couple of options to present to everyone:

1. The winner of the last IF gets to judge the next one. Or...

2. The entry with the most Likes wins.

 

Of course, if anyone else has any suggestions for judging methods, please present them here.

I’d like to continue running the thread and being the one to set themes though, if that’s okay msn-wink.gif I have a lot planned for us for next year.

 

 

Inspiration Friday will return on January 8th 2016.

Many thanks for your entries throughout 2015.

Happy holidays!

Likes are weird, as those posted toward the end of the week are at a disadvantage, also because we like for a lot of different reasons, and not all of us can read every entry before judgment day.

I like the idea of the previous winner judging though, I don't think we all care enough for it to become some sort of quid-pro-quo thing.

That's what bothered me.

and not all of us can read every entry before judgment day.

A very good point, which I hadn't thought of.

Yes, personally I'm leaning toward that option.

Hah, did we really manage to tackle all five icons? I find that far more enjoyable than I should.

 

I, too, support the idea of previous winner. I think it adds a nice little bit of an honor toward winning that week. I would suggest, though, that if that is the case a set of criteria for judgement be drafted up, even if it is simple and brief. That way we all know we're on the same page and looking for the same things when it's our turn to adjudicate.

 

Or, random idea: guest judges. We've got a nice assortment of folks on this board. Perhaps one of them wouldn't mind an invite to pop in and cast some votes. Could bring in some more participants doing that, as well.

I prefer the tyranny of one when it comes to judging. It's a very Chaos Lord way to do things. Come to think of it, so is having the winner be in charge going forward, replacing one who went before.

 

Guest judges could be fun, but I think would work better for an every now and again. It would be hard work in and of itself to find guest judges every week.

First off, thank you for running Inspirational Friday. Not only do I enjoy reading your stories, but I appreciate your judgement of the contest. My brief pitching in as a temporary judge, taught me that a lot more effort goes into judging the contest, than participating, and with less time to do so. Thanks.

As for future contests, I like both ideas of previous winner choosing, and guest judges. Maybe we could do a Chaos vs Blood Angels, Space Wolves, IG, etc... story topic with some of the more active brothers in those sub-forums as judges for the guest judge contests.

One thing I would like to see, is more feedback. But, I'm not really sure how to do this effectively. On one hand I would like to get tips here and there about how to improve, and see others as well, but I don't want to discourage new blood with what may be perceived as harsh criticism of what they put their own personal time and effort into doing.
