I was a little occupied learning to adult. -sigh-

Im done with university so trying to figure this whole next process xD. I have more or less settled down and so ill start things up now that I know I won't randomly disappear in the middle.

How have you all been doing?
Alright everyone Chapter 2 of Chrono Asylum will start up soon enough! Is everyone still here and with me?



We are looking for new recruits for chapter 2!
So I have just started Memory sorrow and thorn, namely the first book: The Dragonbone Chair. So far it is on the slow side though I don't mind that. Tad Williams is more concerned with laying out a foundation, building the world, having the reader get accustomed to the characters. This is a harbinger of great things to come, at least in my reading experience.

My only qualms is that the main character is a real dunce. Hopefully the character progression will start soon and things will pick up.
@ArenaSnow Could be worse. I have seen things in the 1x1 section. Things I can't unsee no matter what. I don't care if that's what they want to RP. By all means, go ahead if that's what you want, but I always wonder what went through their mind to think of such a plot or an idea.

-Chuckles- The human mind is a strange and scary place when it needs to be. I have had a few scarring 1v1 reads myself.

Also here is another situation I would like to vent. I don't face it with my current roster of RPers (I love em) but once I had an applicant who entered my rp when it was already about 2 years and going strong (pre guild fall). And this dude just randomly one day decides to change about three critical plot lores just because he found the idea boring. And there I am thinking, "Did you just change the back lore that was set up since day one..... Cause you found it boring?"
I have never been one to write unnecessarily long and I won't start now. And so keeping it brief and to the point, I simply love these three who have been a part of my RP family for over an year. In fact if not for them I would have quite possibly abandoned my RP and most likely would have stopped RPing.



@Ryver et Rhine

All three of you have made RPG a memorable place and Chrono Asylum a memorable RP and I know for a fact as long as I have you guys with me, we will finish CA one day. You guys are the best. =p
Anyone read the "Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne"? It's some really nice work by Brian Stavely. The first two books were among the finest books I have read in regards to modern epic fantasies. The third book however was somewhat lack luster.
While not really bitching though I do suppose it is difficult recruiting new players in a generally old RP, that and finding consistent rpers. Any RP that is say more than 8 months or so old, well there are bound to be times where activity dips. In those times some RPers tend to take flight and that does affect the over-all pacing.
Boy does it make me glad that people are talking and discussing Wheel of time here, especially since that series got me back into reading and into "epic fantasies" so it holds a special place in my heart. My judgement about that series may be biased but then again these are recommendations based on opinions.

While yes the Wheel of time has the standard tropes, "great looming evil", "destined savior" etc, it also has heart. I mean if you pick this series and go with it till the end, it is not just a read it is a journey, an experience. You see the magnificent world, the cultures, the endless abundance of characters and especially the progression. How these three boys, whisked away from a small village, grow to be the 'Ta'veren' that they are and how they shape the world around them. Another something that I really liked was the each book was known for a special event that would change everything, a single event that is extremely important and would have consequences reflected in the next book. Throughout the book Robert Jordan shows us that fate has a grand plot, "the wheel weaves what the wheel weaves" and if you read carefully you can actually see how it is all woven. Each event propelling you forward towards the inevitable goal.

Now aside from the wonderful Wheel of time series and it's bad ass titular character 'The Dragon Reborn - Rand al Thor - I also really enjoyed 'The Prince of Thorns'. Mark Lawrence knows how to create a gritty world and he really gets the reader into the mind of Jorg. I would not suggest this book to those that don't like gory and or dark and morbid themes. It is a story of vengeance and of a 'prince' who will go to any lengths to achieve that vengeance, he will quite literally watch the world burn and stomp right over to grasp at his ambitions. This is not a story of a hero but of a villain and his rise to power.

EDIT: Oh and here are some of the book series that I have on my 'to read list', listed in priority.

The Book of the Ancestor - Mark Lawrence

Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn - Tad Williams

The KingKiller Chronicle - Patrick Rothfuss

Stormlight archive - Brandon Sanderson
Spots are still open, we are looking for two new players!
