Probably start with just the tentacles, which I imagine would be a lot like calamari or octopus - I'd probably braise it like octopus tentacles, do something Asian style.  Garlic, ginger, chili flake.  Maybe tempura batter and fry some of them, serve with a ginger-wasabi aioli.

Thank you.  That should come in handy.


Also don't worry Scarlet, you weren't alone.  I'm just a bit too wary of messing with other people's characters.  Too much history with RPs that expressly forbid that.

Alright guys, I didn't think I'd have to say this, but stop with the reality altering stuff. Seriously. You're trying to fix confusion by creating more. I don't see the problem with this "fanfiction." Wouldn't consider it as such. That's like saying you have a problem with the Godzilla incident. Or Cthulhu. It's supposed to be random and fun. Switching the entire scenery every five seconds does not make it fun.

We change little things, start action and stuff, not change the plot or scenery unless it makes complete sense. High off fumes ranks up there with dream sequences.

That's what we'd agreed here earlier too.

I'm not sure where we agreed to this. And I don't see the problem with it.

I probably sound more aggravated than I am. I'm more aggravated that I had to say this. Quite frankly, I don't see the confusion. It's only happened once with Gariath's post. Other than that, I think we're fine. I don't want this to be argumentative and changing willy-nilly. I don't want to have to write these posts. Just have fun and go with the flow.

If you have a problem, PM me or Charlie. But no more reality altering stuff.

On a much brighter note - oh, who am I kidding? I can't even make black humor right now. Robin Williams is dead! How can we go on?

Yeah, you're right Chill.  I've been out of it since Sunday so the randomness got to me a bit more than it should, honestly it isn't that big a deal to me.  (To my character though, that's a whole other matter.)   

Also...Robin Williams is dead?  :'(

Yes, Robin Williams has died.  He lived near my neighborhood in San Francisco and I saw him on the street several times.  The one brief interaction I had with him, telling him how important his work had been to me, he was very kind.  It's a loss and depression is no joke.

Yay!
(although I'll hold back my opinion on 'handsome' ;))
Can you please move the story along a bit, after my blunder? I'm waiting for something more before I dare enter again, hehe

Sorry, I've been dealing with some personal matters and a sudden need for new employment.  Let's move the story!  How can I help?  I feel like I've been posting a lot...

Ooh. That always sucks. Hope you find a job soon.

Sorry I've been away. Been getting ready to move into college next week and all that jive. Might be on and off some more for a few weeks. But let's get the story moving again. Hmm. Well, let's just figure it out as we go. Maybe get out of the castle? Storm Charlie's forces? Yuan gets his sub-plot together so we can get off the island?

Woah, Scarlet!
Even the Great Overlord sings songs of my rugged good looks when he's feeling down :P

But in all seriousness, sorry I haven't been posting. I might not be able to add anything to the story just yet but I'm gonna try and make the time for it soon :)

Good luck with college, Chill. Y'all better have fun!

Just thought I'd add something: Created a new RP on a different forum, with almost 20 people and counting. Things are hectic, and we've barely started. (namely because they don't want to start at the same place, and when they do, everybody attacks at once with hanging conversations. Nor can anybody "go with the flow" if it goes against their version of the plot.) I actually find it pretty funny, and scary. They want to make a Skype group chat to "get a sense of things."

Insane, I know. Really resisting the urge to jump the gun and throw everything down the crazy well. Which is to say, they don't know what nonsense I have up my sleeve yet, and I'm afraid they won't like it.

Also, I'm off my crutch with Doc. Using a posh, arrogant prick of a nobleman, so props to Charlie for the idea!

To make a long story short, I'm dealing with RPers that go for the prodigy magician orphan the first chance they get. Or shapeshifting crows. This is going to be interesting. Can't wait for the Ye Olde English coyotes to attack. Wonder how they'll make sense of that.

^ good to hear that, and that you're having fun with it :)

I was disappointed that ours just vanished, and also with myself that I wanted things to be so 'proper' and 'logical' hehehe You can't really get away from who you are deep down, right? ;)

Not at all. :p

I just wanted to clarify and thank all of y'all who were in these last few RPGs. It's great to have fantasy veterans around for this.
