Thought I was dead, eh?

Post by Blaze FF8 on Mon Oct 31, 2011 10:55 pm

Hi there, everyone. It's been a while. Ever since I stopped playing RS, I found myself busier with other things, and wound up with less and less time to pop in here to chat. (And as RS has been forever moving forward, I've sort've been left in the dark with not much to chat about)

A few of you might remember that I was writing a book, entitled "Verdentia - The World Beyond Sight". Well, that book's finished now, and while I've been hunting down agents and publishers, I've set up a blog of sorts with a few extracts and snippets to see what people think. What use is any writer's efforts, ambitions or initiative without an audience to flaunt them to? So, I was just wond'rin... would anyone like to take a look?
The first thing I ought to mention is that it's had a name change. The title is now "The Eightfold Covert - A Road Between". Yes, there's purpose behind the subtitle, I'd very much like to make a series out of this, but I'll only know if it has the potential with a little feedback.
Now, if you do take a look, and you do like what you see, I'd really apreciate it if you perhaps told a few friends (not that you need to). I'll be honest, I think it's important that I establish a little bit of a network.

The blog can be found at: davidastewart.blogspot.com

I'd also like to take this post to ask how everyone's been. I think the last time I made any noise on this side was about a year ago, and it was a quiet noise at that. (I tried logging into the chat a few times, but no one seems to visit it when I'm around.)

It's like Jhallan all over again! Just when the fight becomes fierce, we find just the person who will fill the void!

My book is nearing completion also. I just need to string the chapters together.

That's kind of you to say, Morb. (Jhallan? I'm going to guess he had a role to play in the latest Mahjarrat quest, then. Tongue ) How have things been?
Good to hear about your book, too. Sounds like it's well on its way. Smile

May I explain.

We're currently doing a little role-play kinda thing where we have our own version of the Ritual of the Mahjarrat - the Ritual of Suggestion.

When Morb says you're like Jhallen, he means he wants you to be the sacrifice in this ritual...


Anyway, welcome back. You may or may not know who I am, so greetings, etc if you don't.

Yay! Good to see you again and glad to hear that your book's well on its way. Smile

On our front, we're getting ready for the Raid. I think that we're almost ready, but HA needs completion >.> and we need a few more projects, like my Svet Trilogy.

Blaze is really like Jhallan in this case. We all think he's gone for good, but just as things start to get ugly, he is found and then answers most of our problems.

Since your decision to leave us for other projects, things have dramatically changed. The Nightmare, what once started out as a creature fouler than a demon with a few followers has slowly grown in power, revealing itself to actually be an entity of pure darkness with an enormous cult following spanning over thousands of years with followers of almost every race in RuneScape, even those you thought to be followers of Zamorak and has manipulated and shaped the course of history for a long time. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say it has become almost god-like.

Being sacrificed wasn't quite the respose I was hoping for, but... Neutral
In all seriousness though, that sounds quite fun. Smile

The Raid on the forums? Still going for that, eh? Should be interesting. Grin And HA's still incomplete!? I know it's a pretty hefty quest, but jeez. Are bits and pieces being replaced and revamped, or are there still diamond-hunting sections still unwritten?

Sounds like a villian-and-a-half, Morb. I remember the Nightmare's thread, but a lot's probably been changed/ been added since I last glimpsed it. (Creating villians, monsters and epithaths of terror always seem to be among the funnest parts of writing, if you ask me. Wink )

Howdy there, Mr. Blaze. Tongue Been a while!

I'll probably take a look at your excerpts in a little bit, but I've got my own novel to write this month (NaNoWriMo just started!) so I don't know if I'll be able to read it all in one go. Anywho, good to see you back!

It has indeed, Jeeves, nice to see you again. Tongue
Thanks. If you take a look, I hope you enjoy it. Good luck with your own story too. Smile

To be honest, I'm feeling a little astray coming back all of a sudden. I haven't a clue what most threads are talking about anymore, since there's so much to catch up on. Confuse

Nice to see you too, Dark.

A sackboy? Er... cheers! That's kind of you to offer.

On a seperate note, I just noticed the "most users ever active" count is now at 60, and that record was put in place just recently. 60? What was happening that day!?

Hm? Film what, exactly?
Not that it really matters, as I'm not a member anymore, and haven't been one for a long time. Sorry, Dusk.

I'll give it a try for you Dusk. The first thing I'll probably do is Salt in the Wound.

Just depends if I can get the right software.

Dang, this quietened quickly. 'Course, I wouldn't blame anyone, it's a little wordy.

On the subject of fantasy/sci-fi, however, does anyone know any good blogs or forums dedicated to the genres?
