21/11/2011 19:35:59 ‹Bill Ward› i've been in a crowd, when it'sa bit chilly out
21/11/2011 19:36:15 ‹Dave Gross› Thanks again to everyone who joined us this evening. If you like these chats and want to see more of them, post a note on the messageboards. And don't forget to post reviews of your favorite web fiction stories. It's a great way to spread the word.
21/11/2011 19:36:20 ‹Ed Greenwood› I've found over the years that keeping as close as possible to roleplaying in writing about magic, and as far away from "football quarterback in the huddle" writing, always works best.
21/11/2011 19:36:57 ‹Matthew Morris› Mbanach for me (not a pro) it's also how the character casts. Is he doing complex equasions? Is he just a conduit? Is he grabbing reality by the balls and squeezing.
21/11/2011 19:37:16 ‹Matthew Morris› OF course M:tA also influnces how I visualize magic too.
21/11/2011 19:37:25 ‹GameMaster's Kip› ED: I asked this awhile ago, and would love your feedback - what would you say has been the most useful in developing your writing? College courses, or the act of writing and peer review?
21/11/2011 19:37:30 ‹Ed Greenwood› Heh. Knew we'd get to the squeezing sooner or later. ;}
21/11/2011 19:37:35 ‹Bill Ward› That roleplaying vs 'stating' mental approach is a great way to look at it
21/11/2011 19:37:37 ‹Russ› All the cool teams go no-huddle
21/11/2011 19:37:41 ‹Lady Elaine› OH! I have a question for any Pathfinder folks still around--if I wanted to write a story with an Irish/Scottish feel, is there anywhere in Golarian you would recommend taking a look at?
21/11/2011 19:37:45 * _MBanach/Ezekiel was consumed by the Chatbeast (NOM!)_
21/11/2011 19:37:52 ‹MBanach/Ezekiel› thanks all
21/11/2011 19:38:17 ‹Justin Sluder› MBanach/Ezekiel: have you read any of the Eberron fiction?
21/11/2011 19:38:22 ‹Mulban› Matthew Morris: Oh definitely, I love both editions of that game
21/11/2011 19:38:37 ‹Ed Greenwood› Kip, I've never taken a college course in writing, except as a journalist (that's what I got a degree in). The journalism courses were good at training me to concentrate despite noise and distraction, and no matter what, git 'er done.
21/11/2011 19:38:47 ‹MBanach/Ezekiel› Justin Sluder: no, I haven't - what's good?
21/11/2011 19:39:19 ‹Justin Sluder› I don't recall the title, but it was one of the first Eberron novel. One of the characters is an Artificer, and I really loved the way the author described her use of magic.
21/11/2011 19:39:37 ‹Justin Sluder› MBanach/Ezekiel: sadly, I've only read about 1 1/3 Eberron novels.
21/11/2011 19:39:44 ‹Matthew Morris› That would be Keith Baker's trillogy Justin.
21/11/2011 19:39:47 * Justin Sluder has a bad habit of starting and not finishing books....
21/11/2011 19:39:56 ‹Pathfinder Chronicler (Away)› Justin Sluder: Was it Keith Baker's book I think? Sharn story?
21/11/2011 19:39:58 ‹Justin Sluder› Matthew Morris: m'kay
21/11/2011 19:40:07 ‹Matthew Morris› City of Towers.
21/11/2011 19:40:16 ‹Pathfinder Chronicler (Away)› yep
21/11/2011 19:40:22 ‹Bill Ward› Lady Elaine: hmm, maybe northern varisia? mountainous, starting to get cold, have Shoanti tribes and also settlements
21/11/2011 19:40:24 ‹Justin Sluder› yeah, sounds right
21/11/2011 19:40:28 ‹TadK› I started that book as well. wonder where it is
21/11/2011 19:40:29 ‹xellos› Everyone: What are you reading?
21/11/2011 19:40:35 ‹GameMaster's Kip› Wow. That's really cool!
21/11/2011 19:40:39 ‹Matthew Morris› I liked Don Bassingwait's work, but I'm a psionic nut.
21/11/2011 19:40:39 ‹Ed Greenwood› Kip, the best way to develop your writing is to read, read, read voraciously, and write, write, write. I've given talks on writing at various universities, but also (when picking up friends, and idly sitting in on classes) heard a LOT of drivel...
21/11/2011 19:40:40 ‹Kevin Andrew Murphy› Lady Elaine: I'd go with Kyonin for an Irish fey feel.
21/11/2011 19:41:03 ‹Andrew | Dev Mode› xellos: Spellwright
21/11/2011 19:41:08 ‹Justin Sluder› MBanach/Ezekiel: are you coming to PaizoCon 2012?
21/11/2011 19:41:31 ‹Lady Elaine› Okay, I'll take a look at those. Now, what if I said Irish circa early to mid 1900's?
21/11/2011 19:41:34 ‹GameMaster's Kip› Xellos: Rule books and watching and rewatching The Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising. I've been working with Matt Vancil and co. to make a Pathfinder - compliant module to tie in with the movie.
21/11/2011 19:41:41 * kraken joins PFTales
21/11/2011 19:41:41 ‹Lady Elaine› In feel, not technology level
21/11/2011 19:41:45 ‹TadK› Xelllos: fiction wise The Iron Council, non fiction is Finite and Infinite Games
21/11/2011 19:41:50 ‹Justin Sluder› xellos: I'm reading my computer screen at the moment, specifically, the DM Tools Tech Support chatroom.
21/11/2011 19:42:10 ‹TadK› do I join this site or not
21/11/2011 19:42:23 ‹MBanach/Ezekiel› Justin Sluder: alas, no PaizoCon for me. GenCon is the one I can make it to each year, since it is close to me.
21/11/2011 19:42:29 ‹Pathfinder Chronicler (Away)› Hi Ed, you wronte your Pathfinder Tale in Alkenstar. I am also writing a story set in the Mana Wastes. Any advice for that story?
21/11/2011 19:42:37 ‹Matthew Morris› @Justin Just that? I'm reading the chat, facebook, paizo boards, race playtests...
21/11/2011 19:42:39 ‹xellos› Justin Sluder:
21/11/2011 19:42:40 ‹Bill Ward› xellos: i'm always in the middle of a hundred things, currently reading an old warhammer 40k series, some clark ashton smith, mouse guard, and a book onthe persian empire
21/11/2011 19:42:50 ‹Matthew Morris› I don't suffer ADD, I enjoy evey minute.
21/11/2011 19:42:55 ‹Justin Sluder› MBanach/Ezekiel: bummer, I was hoping to get you in on something I'm planning on running....
21/11/2011 19:43:12 ‹Justin Sluder› Matthew Morris: I'm tired.
21/11/2011 19:43:38 * Justin Sluder has been up since a little after 0400 and didn't get to bed until after midnight....
21/11/2011 19:44:01 ‹Kevin Andrew Murphy› Bill Ward: Which Clark Ashton? I've read Zothique and I have a copy of Star Changes on my "to read" shelf.
21/11/2011 19:44:03 ‹Pathfinder Chronicler (Away)› Ed Greenwood: It will have a lot of gun shooting in it.
21/11/2011 19:44:08 ‹Justin Sluder› plus, I've been thinking on what to do for Faces of the Tarnished Souk #15
21/11/2011 19:44:14 ‹Matthew Morris› I had a Russian teacher in High School who always said "If you're not in bed by ten, go home."
21/11/2011 19:44:25 ‹Justin Sluder› MBanach/Ezekiel: can you believe we've put out 14 of them already!
21/11/2011 19:44:34 ‹TadK› Rep Matthew
21/11/2011 19:44:47 ‹Russ› I do my best writing from 10 pm to 2 AM
21/11/2011 19:45:00 ‹Russ› But right now I'm in my "just turned in a project" FFA phase
21/11/2011 19:45:04 ‹Bill Ward› Lady Elaine: are you looking for somewhere with famine and social unrest? I'd say you may want to think about finding what it is you find most interesting about that period, and translating it into a PF setting, rather than looking for it already there, if you know what i mean.
21/11/2011 19:45:24 ‹Ed Greenwood› Pathfinder Chronicler (Away): I'd say, remember how strange the Mana Wastes are. Unmapped, wind-howling wilderness populated by mana-mutated monsters. So you can go weird, way, way weird...
21/11/2011 19:45:25 ‹Matthew Morris› I'm sure I do my best writing when I'm asleep. Can't ever rememher when I wake up though.
21/11/2011 19:45:31 ‹TadK› got a link Justin to this stuff
21/11/2011 19:45:52 ‹Russ› Also, remember that the mana wastes aren't dead to magic.
21/11/2011 19:45:59 ‹Russ› Some areas are dead. Some are normal. Some are warped. And many shift.
21/11/2011 19:46:04 ‹Bill Ward› Kevin Andrew Murphy: it's a collection of CAS's Cthulhu mythos fiction from chaosium, I think there may be some stories from Zothique in it, actually
21/11/2011 19:46:25 ‹Pathfinder Chronicler (Away)› Ed Greenwood: My story revolves around an ancient battlefield between Nex and Geb where things really went afoul with a certain Nex secret weapon.
21/11/2011 19:46:38 ‹Matthew Morris› I found years ago a compilation of CAS Averoigne stories online.
21/11/2011 19:46:40 ‹Justin Sluder› TadK: I made this list earlier today: http://paizo.com/people/JustinSluder
21/11/2011 19:46:41 ‹Lady Elaine› Bill Ward: Well, there's a song that I know. It's really sad, and I don't know why but it makes me want to translate it into a pathfinder story. It's more about the social unrest aspect and the futility of it all. It's called "There Were Roses." The saddest thing about it is that it's true. (the song that is)
21/11/2011 19:46:45 ‹Bill Ward› Kevin Andrew Murphy: It's called The Klarkash-Ton Cycle
