When we get the approved list finished I may request your full piece. But that is some weeks down the road. We also dont want 19 10k word stories, more for our sake editing than anything. I will let you know.

I have no experience of it but somehow I feel like a cheerleader waiting to see if i made the squad... I may need to get out more.


" They made you to be untouched by God or mortal. As I cannot kill you, so I curse you, not with death but with life.

I curse you - with the pain of ten thousand days in the Dark Place, with the life's blood of a mage's sacrifice, with Death's authority held in my hands.

I curse you, and I strike your name from history, stripped of arrogance and pride, empty of the self you once knew, gutted of all you are. I take your name and all you have won by the strength of your hand. I curse you for eternity, to find only darkness where once you knew your own face.

And I dub you the Ragged Man."

That's entirely understandable my friend, I'm happy for it to stay at the 3k, I just don't know how the end paragraphs come off to someone else.

I didn't think it was too abrupt, honestly. And either way, we'll have plenty of time for additional drafts so if that's something that needs to be addressed, we'll have a chance to do so. :D

Happy to help!  I'll be out of town for the next week on vacation, so don't think that I'm ignoring any PMs or tags during that time!  I simply won't see them.  msn-wink.gif

Just checking in to let you know I'm still cranking away on reading the submissions. I appreciate your patience, as we all have day jobs that sometimes turn into night jobs as well. :D

Okay. The reading and commenting phase is drawing to a close. I've given everything a good read, as has MasterHQ. I'll be conferring with him and then we'll start contacting the writers and setting up initial feedback sessions. 

 

First impressions:

  • We are, unsurprisingly, a very talented and original group of writers with fascinating ideas.
  • Where are all the renegades and chaos cultists?
  • BL is so good at 30K that we must not want to get into those waters. 
  • Who knew how much we all love librarians, and how fascinated we are by the Inquisition?
  • This. Is. Going. To. ROCK!

That is surprising. I would have thought we would have had TONS of those stories, since we have so many awesome and creative Chaos fans on the board.

I've got some. Well... they'd be rebels at the time.

My story is set during the heresy (whether or not it's apparent in the notes, I can't remember). I don't know about the rest of you.

 
  • Who knew how much we all love librarians, and how fascinated we are by the Inquisition?

 

Now that is interesting...

I'm sorry that I just found this. I've had quite a few ideas for short stories for some time now. Ah, well. Can't wait to see what the others have written. :)

I could switch out one of my ideas for another involving a Chaos Lord devoted to Malal.....by the way, which idea are you guys using, or did you just want me to go ahead and try to write both? Honestly, I could theoretically do all three, since the one focusing on Chaos is pretty much one dude brooding in his throne room and getting interrupted by something once or twice. It by nature would have to be short or it would get exhausting far too fast.

My sister is in dire need of help with medical debt for a surgery that saved her life, all help is gratefully received, be it prayer, financial aid, or even a simple signal boost. And hey, by donating, even just a dollar, you can get a free short story Anthology specially crafted and compiled for this cause!

Yeah, that's exactly what I thought. Based on the modeling boards I thought we'd have tons of both 30K and chaos stuff, but really they were quite few. They showed up in a lot of stories but not as the protagonists.

 

I'm sorry that I just found this. I've had quite a few ideas for short stories for some time now. Ah, well. Can't wait to see what the others have written. smile.png

 

Don't worry, man. If this goes as well as I think it will, I want this to become the first in a series. :D

Not sure which story yet. MasterHQ is doing some homework (thanks, man!) so we can see just how much of what we've got. I'll consider your offer though, because MALAL! That poor guy (or god) is probably never going to get any official fluff again so it's up to us now.  ;)

Don't complain least we have a theme for the next anthology as the thing I found hard about this was our brief was just write a short story about 40K. With such a rich and massive universe that's kinda hard .... I need boundaries man BOUNDARIES!!!!!! tongue.png

You know what? You're completely right. I'm the same way. All my finest creative work comes from having strictly defined limits and challenges.

 

For something like this, though, at least initially, all bets were off. We HAD to see what you all could come up with, and it worked brilliantly. Maybe next time around we will be more prescriptive now that we've begun to establish a framework. I actually briefly considered making this first version all about loyalists and making the next one chaos, but opted not to. It's just not fair for the inaugural one.

I'm willing to bet that, now that you've indicated a relative lack of Chaos work, you'll be inundated with it next time around.  Communities thrive on filling scarcities.

Oh I hope so. Even if it's not all-or-nothing it'd be nice if the next is a bit heavier on the chaos. Like I mentioned, I was just a bit surprised it wasn't like that this time around.

I went the renegade route, rather than full-on Chaos - although if there was ever a future version of my tale then full on Chaos is a possibility.


" They made you to be untouched by God or mortal. As I cannot kill you, so I curse you, not with death but with life.

I curse you - with the pain of ten thousand days in the Dark Place, with the life's blood of a mage's sacrifice, with Death's authority held in my hands.

Ok we're getting a little side tracked here with Anothlogy #2 (when chaos comes to call). When we still need to do #1 (Giving Libbys the love they deserve ... and other stories). But seriously whats the next step Jeff?
