    Adventure Log 1.1

    I also think it would be helpful to create an option to view the entries from oldest to new. I might be slow or something, but it took me a while to figure out that when viewing all the entries at once in the separate window, you have to scroll all the way down to reach the first. Quite confusing. I read some spoilers, unhappily.
  3. It would be nice to get it on the announcement log at the very least; we could get some more input and alert the many who have no idea of this project. I mention it every now and then in the chat, but I haven't logged onto the game much yet because finals just ended today. Unfortunately, I don't think I could get the suggestion to Mur soon, or that it would be an appropriate time to do so, since my family is hauling me off to the mountains... where it's even more cold. Going to ride an uncomfortable train for two days to get to them, and then immediately off in a freezing car for several ho
  4. Horo... But yes, help very much appreciated, Lady. I guess you don't have yahoo messenger or another IM? For anyone who wants to give their opinion, these are some things I've been asking those who are interested so I can gain a little perspective about the community's view of a potential newspaper: [list] [*][i]When you think of a MagicDuel newspaper, what sort of overall impression do you get from your visualization?[/i] There are a lot of design options. We could have a clean-looking modern newspaper with a typeface like Arial, or something elegant with a lot of visual elements a
  5. I agree with you but I think I can see why Mur might not want that. The avatars represent the players' roles and characters; would you stamp those with another player's signature? It's true that it's a representation created by an artist who might deserve recognition, but it may taint the feeling of absolute possession of the player who buys the avatar. Another thing is the Artisans are considered the artists of the game, not individual persons selling works of art. Do you see signatures on the map drawings? The same reason for why the answer is no could apply to the Artisans' work. The
  6. Okay, these are the people I have who told me they are interested so far: Grido (reporter/copy editor) Keith Moon (reporter/copy editor) Burns (reporter) Ivorak (source/reporter) MRnegative6 (source) DarkPriestess (artist/source) Kragel (source/artist) Awiiya (help of some sort) Udgard (help of some sort) I use the term reporter here lightly, since I get the feel that some are more interested in writing than reporting. Now, I'm afraid each one of you, if you still want to do this, will have to be more than what you told me you were interested in.. please give me contact info, pref
  7. Sorry for the questions, Kragel :b And yes, I was hunting for Glor but couldn't find him; where is he usually? Maybe if all else fails you can be our median for communication Mr: Hmm.. it's certainly a big project, and I think I'm more uncertain than most about whether this will work or not because I know how much would have to go into making one, and we might have to make it come out less often. But what's to stop us from trying? As for news, I don't know what you mean. I think that news might be a tough one because it's rather dry; a lot happens in MD, but I don't see much more that
  8. Gossip column How slanderous! I know what you mean though :b There are a lot of light items which could work well in a MagicDuel newspaper, the trouble will be deciding which of them will go into it, especially if we're limited to one page. I'll probably rely on your guys' input when apple-picking season comes around; I'm rather indecisive without advice. And as to journalism.. in truth, I'm probably not much better than you, just have a little more knowledge from a few years of experience. Right, I was editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper, but that was because our school lacked
  9. Happy birthday And since I can't seem to find you ingame, I want to talk to you about a MD newspaper which might need the help of your artists. Maybe you can hunt me out better than I can you or pm here on the forums?
  10. It looks pretty, much less eye-hurting than the previous page if I recall correctly. But at the same time, it just seems to conflict with Magicduel's theme of beauty in simplicity. But, no, not really the design. The color. Black thin lines white body gold highlight? I can see that it's sort of preserved in the new page but it's not loyal. It isn't the same clear-cut contrast. But I think it is an adequately attractive homepage, and maybe it ought to be different since the homepage as advertisement has a different tone from the game anyway. I'm just not sure I wouldn't like it the ot
  11. [quote name='King Manu' post='21285' date='Dec 5 2008, 08:11 AM']p.s. dont get involved in this project if you are not sure you will have time to manage it, because i plan to torture you with it , at least untill we establish a format.[/quote] I think I got myself into something scary. More seriously, though, I might not be the best candidate in terms of availability--not to mention I think I have a lot to discover about the game before I can say I have a good feel of it (just got out of tutorial). I'm willing to try and I'm sure it will be exciting no matter what happens, but if there's
  12. Um, actually, I wasn't really thinking about this newspaper thing being integrated into the game; it could just be a little informal something for the community rather than official work for the game. I was planning to do as Grido said, in a way, basically have some people sign up (with email of their choice) if they'd like to receive the issues whenever they come out and hope word spreads so anyone who would be interested in it would be able to access at their leisure. And I was also going to upload/link it on the forums for those who check the forums regularly anyway so they wouldn't need
  13. You can be the reporter that's writing a story every week then. (: Or, if you draw well, the artist. Maybe I underestimate certain players' devotion for this game. However, I'm not against trying a little newsletter every week. I'm a masochist who likes to challenge himself, and perhaps it will be less hard than I think. I'm a wary of the roleplaying in this game, so making a role for myself in it is not a priority for me, and neither is making the newspaper about roleplaying. My interest is piqued by the game's development, however, so I am leaning towards that direction for now. I don
  14. I know; I always had to worry about text-heavy pieces since the general student body in my high school didn't really like long stories and preferred visuals. My next step if people express interest would be to recruit staff, including artists; I can't draw well or make decent graphics, I can only format things into a layout. A weekly issue sounds nice, but I doubt I could pull that off with my real life schedule, or at least not without some very dedicated staff who could help me out a lot.
  15. I can sense that spoilers would be inappropriate, seems like this game is kind of strict on it. I'm not exactly sure if it would be similar to the Adventure Log (AL, right?) because I still haven't really seen the game's roleplaying aspect and wouldn't know how to integrate that in a newspaper. I also don't want to step on the Archivist's toes. But maybe something like that would be possible. It also could be a newspaper that is about ingame roleplaying events as if they are real. But like the other person said, it might not fit in with the game's fantasy theme. As for putting it in the
