  1. I thought that Uncanny Avengers was a little underwhelming with its debut. The characterization of Rogue was way off, and I'm not thrilled with the line-up's lack of diversity. It's a beautiful book, and Rick Remember does a competent job with the script, but this book is not new reader friendly AT ALL. Also: It's terribly grim for my tastes. I'm most interested in A+X because team-up books always have interesting creators and they are able to be more experimental in terms of storytelling. The new Captain America seems pretty cool as well. I'm not a huge Romita Jr. f

  3. Good seeing you again, Desert Shadow. Didn't you used to be a moderator at one point? This was already answered pretty thoroughly, but lack of activity made nominating 50 unique OB achievements/members impossible. Although a nominations thread was created, it was subsequently deleted in a server move. Since there was no apparent interest in keeping nominations going we decided it was best to pass this year. Having said that, this is still a site worthy of merit. Just seeing this thread fills me with a lot of strong memories about the site over the past decade. Many of the members I j
  4. Cool! Maybe we could collaborate on a short comic or something. Send me some love, Boo, and we can write it together. - Shy
  5. Otakuu, what's your story? How old are you? What do you do for a living? Have you ever done sequential (comic book) art before? You work I've seen so far is great, and I'm curious about what your professional aspirations are. Keep up the good work! - Shy!

    Yeah, I was really disappointed with my first post in Oceanus. I'm Action posts work best with music, which is probably why we kept getting attacked so often. I figured the strength of concept of the RPG would be enough to justify me posting, but I kept getting writer's block. There are two or three half-finished posts for Oceanus... I'm sure I'll get around to finishing them when I feel inspired. To answer your question about how long it takes to write posts, that varies wildly with me. Some posts sit on word documents for months or years before I end up posting them. Kill

    [quote name='Boo' timestamp='1337808616' post='711864']What would you do differently next time to hand back the freedom? And would you give more or less freedom still than the first episode?[/quote] I would be more careful about when I exerted control over the story, I suppose. In the case of Almagest Expedition, I should have given the returning players more freedom to tell the kinds of stories they wanted with the characters they had previously created. A lot of the time I would contact players to get an idea of what they had in mind for a story, but there was only s

For me, I think that shows my insecurities as a writer, and a fear of my core idea f
  9. Almagest? Hm? Call me on Skype or something, James. Almagest has always been near and dear to my heart. I was actually chatting with an artist yesterday about working on a small Almagest comic for our portfolios. With Expedition I think we overextended ourselves a bit, but I would certainly like to wrap up some of those plot threads and figure out what the next step is. - Shy

  14. Do we have posts archived from pre-2005? I can't seem to search for anything earlier. I was curious to pull up some of the 9/11 threads from when it happened. http://www.myotaku.com/users/shyguy/posts/4904 Do any of these threads still exist? - Shy
  15. Oceanus is up. Start posting!

      It's entirely your call! And remember that these posts don't have to be written in chronological order, so you can write posts about any period in your character's life.

      I hope you read this Shy. I should have my post up tomorrow if all things go well.

      Also, thanks for all your help. I keep thinking of this like a normal RP. I need to get outside of the box more often.

    Oceanus

    [center][font="Georgia"][size=7][center][b][color="#000080"]OCEANUS[/color][/b][/center][/size] [/font][/center][indent]Silence. Eos had been to many worlds in her lifetime, but never had she and her crew come across one quite like As-Saif. Built in the heart of a star, Crystal City was one of the last safe-havens for those fighting against the Dark Tide; a place where both heroes and their secrets went to hide. The goal was simple: refuel the [I]Oceanus[/I] and, with caution, refill the ranks of the crew. An act of betrayal had cost many their lives, but not the payload.
  18. I'll probably have the first Oceanus post up tomorrow. Finding the right song has been kind of tricky.

    1. Boo

      Boo

      OK BACK HOME, SELECTED SOME SONGS. TIME 4 POSTIN'. Also, White made you talk, lolz

  19. Really enjoying the sign-ups for OCEANUS so far, but I'm hoping to see some more! Do you have a song to share?

      okay, okay.. I'm on it.

  21. I know y'all are signing up for my RPG. So get on that.

      ... Why would you do that?

      Music doesn't have to be in every post you do, but I do kinda expect songs in a lot of them. No Oklahoma, though.

    3. Lilt

      Lilt

      Awww, but Oklahoma was my theme song! D:

      Just kidding, but I'm working on my sign up right now. I have a good theme song planned.

      I like the idea a lot. Music is one of my favorite things in a good story.

      I'll have my sign up posted this week.

      Man, not barely enough attention for your prime piece of work.

    [indent][b]Selene[/b] has ravaged this galaxy. A conqueror, an empress, and a goddess, in her wake are the ruins of a thousand worlds. Time has passed, war zones are now graveyards, and the voices of dissent have fallen silent. Silence... Yet even in the darkest of times heroes still exist. A brave crew of soldiers, pirates, explorers, and dreamers hold the key to freeing Seleneâ??s grip on their homes. The keyâ??s name is [b]Eos[/b], and she is captain of this vessel, [b]Oceanus.[/b] On this day we venture into the heart of Seleneâ??s empire without knowing exactly what we will find
