    Azull got a reaction from Mallos in Weekly silver   
    “This is the awe-inspiring universe of magic: There are no atoms, only waves and motions all around. Here, you discard all belief in barriers to understanding. You put aside understanding itself. This universe cannot be seen, cannot be heard, cannot be detected in any way by fixed perceptions. It is the ultimate void where no preordained screens occur upon which forms may be projected. You have only one awareness here—the screen of the magi: Imagination! Here, you learn what it is to be human. You are a creator of order, of beautiful shapes and systems, an organizer of chaos.”

    Azull reacted to Ungod in I'm starting a novel/reputation needed   
    I get random ideas at random times, and today, when I opened the MD forum, I saw Ignnus' topic. Then I thought 'Why not?'.
    But I lack the time to write something elaborate, so it'll be some gag stuff. Also, I need reputation to keep going. Positive or negative, it doesn't matter. Hit the down/up button and I will continue writing new 'episodes'.  
    Today, it's 'The Necrovion Cafe'.
    Ignnus was dragging his feet across the Necrovion wasteland. After he left the House hours ago, he managed to climb all the stairs without assistance and was now contemplating death. After all, what else was he to do while leaning on the graveyard brick wall, wheezing like a geezer?
    I'm tired of this ****, he mumbled. 
    The priests were doing their habitual techno dance around the literate bonfire. Ignnus must have lost it seeing them, because he started to scream:
    I'm tired of this SHIIIIIT! I want asphalt! I want a hat, I want a gas mask and...and...a coffee would be great...'
    The priests were too busy to stop and listen, but out of nowhere, a shade appeared.
    Did you say... coffee? it asked.
    Yeah, said Ignnus. Do you have some?
    There is a price to pay...for everything, the shade smirked.
    Price? scoffed Ignnus. I would KILL for a cup of coffee. How's that for a price?
    The shade chuckled. 'It seems we have found what to motivate our troops with, Master.'
    ...………...…......…………………………………...…………………...…………......………......…......…………...…………..
    Ignnus was sipping his freshly-baked beans coffee, with sugar cane and sour cream on top, at the Necrovion Café. He looked as happy as a corporate employee at lunch - only he carried a bazooka on his back. Somewhere, the Shade Sentinel was grinning.

    Azull reacted to Chewett in Refactoring Progress   
    Let me make it clear to everyone.
    I haven't spent months reworking MD to just "give up certain scenes". Fuck that. Today I have spent most of the day on MD and I feel with the new cache we are making miles of progress. Its faster and easier to share code across the Javascript Layer which will have major benefits coding it.
    Worst case scenario, we rebuild specific scenes from the ground up. And thats literally the worst case.

    Azull reacted to Ungod in An odd fear   
    When I was practicing Aikido (for a very short period of time) a very long time ago, what we did was a little meditation after the warm-up before going into techniques (I think it's called zazen?). It was there to clear the mind of any thoughts and I think it worked. I sometimes did it at home and I always found that my voice was comparably weaker after doing it. During meditation, you don't do much - you just stare, if your eyes are open. It was because of it that a very original fear/thought occurred to me. It's about language.
    Only after reading a bit on language did I realize speaking is hard. I mean, you just learn it in infancy, so you never really understand how hard it actually is. The other day, while I was waiting on something, I saw a little girl chasing a dog, trying to feed it some crackers or something. She kept calling it 'Am'. What she was trying to say was 'Ham', but I suppose that's slightly harder to pronounce. In the absence of the word, she just imitated the sound it makes. Personally, I would have called it 'hau' - and I guess most people would. You have 'howl' in English, don't you? Dogs howl.
    It takes a long time, if you are educated, to accept the idea that language and words evolved from the sounds that we imitated. All around us, animals and plants make sounds, and the wind, and water, and rocks as well. We didn't come up with nouns in a fancy way, we simply tried to imitate the sound a thing does to 'name' it. Some people on this big planet still have issues with language - and you can see how hard it is for them to speak. They speak from the abdomen, and they probably feel pain in the guts trying to get out sounds. It is so unnatural to them. You see, sounds travelled from the gut to the throat and later to the mouth - but that was a long journey.
     So what is my fear? I thought 'If you meditate long enough, could you forget to speak?' The thing about speaking is that not only it is hard (which I always felt it to be, even if I am eloquent and if you get me started on a topic I like, say goodbye to your evening), but it's often so...pointless. Speaking of which - as far as I know, the guy who came up with Aikido didn't explain the techniques to his students, he just showed them. 
    I feel so comfortable in my silence I'm afraid I might actually go like 'forget it, they'll get it if I use gestures'. Hey, I could pretend to be a mute! I know of a writer who pretended to be crazy and had - in his words - 'a wonderful time' in the facility, among loonies (well, he also tried to fake his suicide to get rid of his wife, so he was slightly eccentric - or not?)… but then I'd have to learn sign language, which I really don't wanna. If I have to speak coherently, why bother learn *another* language, when I already know a few?
    This is my fear. That one day, I'll just wave goodbye to eloquence and growl when I really have to. I think that'll be the day I learn German.

    Azull reacted to Ungod in Sounds of MD   
    (not sure this is the right place, but it can be moved to the appropriate section, without my approval)
    What is the extension music is hosted on MD? mp3? 
    Was it some kind of plan to have music (tracks) in all scenes? 
    Would it sound good for a couple of scenes to have nature sounds, like a river trickling or birds chirping?

    Azull reacted to Sushi in A25 Quick Adventure Ideas   
    I was thinking some ideas about how to make a series of scene arts more quickly & effortlessly, so players can have a quick/one time adventure or mini quest/festival event in MD for fun, or maybe even for A25 users to train/practice their tool, skill & creativity.

    This is how it works~ mainly I just need to draw EVERYTHING (included all items/doors/triggers etc) in a single sheet of paper and make them all clickable & glow separately. Then the A25 users can mix & match all the clickies freely in the frame and create their own scenes & puzzles, of coz we can add few more extra drawings for important scenes later so they'll look more special. Still, this method is very good to reduce workload & generate creative scenes for the fun adventure.

    Below are some of my concept sketches & examples(eg: Escape Room theme) only, I think you can get the basic idea~

    Travelling Investigator.
    Josephine, or Josie as she prefers, remembers very little about her existence before she woke up on the beach of the Gateway Island. She senses pain, a need for an end and then.. there she was.
    Tall in stature with a motherly appearance and calm, reassuring aspect, Josie is an unassuming middle-aged woman who seems to be guided by one simple word.. adventure.
    An avid researcher and writer, she plans on committing herself to the understanding of the geography of the realm and the exploration of all places existing and yet to be found.
    Explorer, adventurer, researcher.. this is the path she longs to follow.
    In her backpack she carries:
    Paper, Pencils, Compass, Sextant, Astrolabe, Nautical divider, Magnifying Glass, Telescope, Several Reference Books, Journal and Notebook.
    ----------------
    My current expedition: Golemus Golemicarum
    I am conducting my own research of the geography and the significance of the land and will post my spoiler free journal of it on the forum when I am finished.
    I hope that as time goes by, my activities may initiate to some interesting research discussions and quests. One day at a time, though.. I have lots of work to do first!
