Will You Redeem My Life Again?

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Mar 30 2012 · 88 views
and 1 more...
Day Run needs your help! It's tied with two other entries for third place and chances are that it's going to be knocked back into fourth by tomorrow! But YOU can help!

Just go to the RPG Contest #23 Final Poll and vote for entry #2 (and also #5, Beat and Rhythm)! Quickly! Without your vote Day Run may never see a full conclusion--and that would be bad! :(

Also now with COOKIES! 8D


Oh, and don't forget the awesome song that just happens to fit this situation!

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
Will you redeem
my life again?
My life again?

Fire the fields the weed is sown
Water down your empty soul
Wake the sea of silent hope
Water down your empty soul

Fight your foes you're not alone
Holy war is on the phone
Asking to please stay on hold
The bleeding loss of blood runs cold

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
Will you redeem
my life again?

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
will you redeem
my life again?
My life again?

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
On my own
On my own
On my own...

Day Run, Finals, And Song Lyrics That Fit The Current Situation!

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Mar 29 2012 · 30 views

Hey guys. So the final poll for the RPG contest has begun. I'd just like to remind everyone to consider voting for Day Run in the finals if you aren't already planning on doing so--there's a lot of stuff in Day Run that you won't find anywhere else, and it's just going to be a fun time if we get a final season. So you should totally consider it. ^_^

For those wondering, the poll can be found here. Day Run is entry #2.

I also want to thank everyone for voti
ng for Day Run in the preliminary polls--Day Run ended up with a six point lead in its poll, and I can only attribute that to every else who has voted for it. So thanks a ton, and let's work to keep that kind of lead in the finals! :D


Also, some fitting some lyrics:

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
Will you redeem
my life again?
My life again?

Fire the fields the weed is sown
Water down your empty soul
Wake the sea of silent hope
Water down your empty soul

Fight your foes you're not alone
Holy war is on the phone
Asking to please stay on hold
The bleeding loss of blood runs cold

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
Will you redeem
my life again?

I
have wondered about you
Where will you be
when this is through?
If all
If all goes as planned
will you redeem
my life again?
My life again?

And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
And I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
I need you to recover
Because I can't make it on my own
On my own
On my own
On my own...

Simple Reasons For Voting For Day Run.

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Mar 24 2012 · 37 views

This is why.

Especially that last one, for everyone voting for THooL simply because of its Eldritch Abominations. Newsflash!: Day Run did it first.

Hey. How's it going?

Going good? That's good.

Say, you know what's going on right now? RPG Contest #23. That's what's going on.

Did you know that you get three votes per poll in RPG Contests? Yeah, who knew, right?

I bet you also didn't know that voting for this contest begins on Saturday. Yeah, that's right: Saturday. And you have three votes.

Some of you probably already have your top choices picked out. That's cool. But for those of you who don't, here's something to consider:

Day Run.

Yes. Day Run.

It'd be awesome if you voted for it. You know why? Because this. That is why.

As you can see by clicking on that link, Day Run is awesome. And fantastic--which is always good. So you should vote for it.

Especially since, you know, you have three votes. And Day Run would only use one.

also we have cookies. ;)

Why You Should Help Support Day Run

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Mar 19 2012 · 76 views

Hello again, BZPower! I'm back with another two or so weeks of "Support Day Run!!" messages.

I'm not going to say much--the end result of the RPG Contest will largely fall into the hands of the people who frequent that forum, anyway--but I would like to make a case for why Day Run is a good choice. So please, if you would...

Consider the Following

What is Day Run: The Garden?
Day Run: The Garden is an RPG that was put together by Parugi, moderated by Parugi, and played by Parugi and a boatload of other people -- including familiar faces such as Kal the Guardian, Toa of Dancing, iBrow, and The Dreadful Flying Glove, just to name a few. The sequel to the widely popular Night Ride (2009,) Day Run focused on the continued existence of -- you guessed it -- the Day Run! Caught in the middle of a conflict between a gang called the Ring and the local Kai-Nam Police Department -- obviously on the island of Kai-Nam -- the players in Day Run participated in all sorts of things, ranging from attempts to stop the war, perpetuate it, discover the secrets of the island, and playing in the in-game tournament.

But that's not all! Above all of that, the players in Day Run were key in revealing the truth about what the Ring-KNPD conflict was really about. In their adventures, it was discovered that the Ring was responsible for almost every terrible thing that had come to occur on the island, including the war and the creation of the KNPD itself. They found that not only did Lyxek, the leader of the Ring, have some sort of greater hand in creating the primary conflict, he was also working to resurrect a strange being named Rhashahk, through the use of the war, the KNPD, the Day Run, and a number of extremely versatile, resilient and dangerous mechanical creations that he dubbed "Constructs." In his attempts at power, he had begun to gather a number of ancient artifacts, culminating in his sending a team of Dark Hunters to the island of Gynel -- the center of Night Ride -- to complete his search -- and at the same time, unleashing a massive Construct known as the Searcher upon Kai-Nam.

What happened after that?
The game froze. We ran out of time. Some would argue that this is a reason not to vote for Day Run -- that it had multiple seasons with which to finish up -- but I disagree. For one, a number of things occurred that slowed down Day Run before our final three months ran out -- for example, the massive downtime last year, which caused a number of players to disappear and delayed an equally large number of events because it was assumed that they would return, and they never did.

I digress. What I'm trying to say is that despite its multiple seasons, Day Run was unable to finish what it started, and that's bad. No one likes an unfinished story, especially when it gets canceled right in the middle of being completed.

Specifically, a number of plots were left unfinished. We never found out who Rhashahk was. We don't know who or what the Director truly is, or who built him. We don't know how the Feranaki survived. We don't know how the Dark Hunters' mission ends. Why is the Searcher lying dormant in the Barrens? What will become of those affected by its powers? Who is Lyccir? What is in the Garden? Will the rebellion of the Day Run and the Guild of Tyis actually work against the combined Ring and KNPD influence? What is Dalmia planning? Heck, what is Lyxek really planning, and how did the Director intend to use Illuxio against him?

So why vote for it, exactly?
Multiple reasons. Consider this.
  • It's a popular game. In almost every contest it has been in, it's received one of the top spots -- and, in fact, almost won the last contest before a number of people siphoned their votes off to different entries at the last minute (which, thankfully, is fixed this contest.) Consider the number of people who wanted it to be made, and how many people were saddened by the fact that it couldn't continue.
  • It's a guaranteed solid game-play experience -- it kind of has to be considering the amount of time that it got to stick around for. It has a well-built story, its mechanics are tried and true, it's not that difficult to jump in to, and it's just a fun game in general, full of mystery and action. Ask any of the people who played in it -- they'll say something similar.
  • There is a lot for the players to do, both in and out of the main story -- places to explore, mysteries to unravel, a racing and fighting tournament that they can participate in, for Pete's sake! And starting with its next season? Even more! Random events, more civilian interaction, things to get involved in!
  • There is so much customization that you can do! I'm not picky about weapons, masks, elements, or even vehicles, as long as you don't intentionally try to go overboard!
  • Your actions influence the main story -- just ask Kal the Guardian or iBrow (currently Kermit the Pyro)! I can think of three or four player choices and actions that drastically changed what I had originally planned, in most cases for the betterment of the story. Day Run isn't a GM-Totalitarian game -- there is a very large amount of freedom for the players in terms of term influence.
  • Not to mention, you'd be making a lot of people happy by voting for it, as it would give them the chance to finish what they helped to start -- and then you could get in on the fun, too! It's a win-win situation!
I hope this at least makes you consider voting for Day Run when the time comes -- and believe me, I mean it when I say that I really hope you at least consider it. Getting a chance to finish up Day Run alongside the players who brought it to where it is would be, in my opinion, a fantastic opportunity for me, especially as I don't know if I'm going to have time to run it after this upcoming season.

But anyway, if you want to look at it yourself, see it here. If you want to offer a public opinion, post it here or in this very blog entry! And if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to post them or PM me -- I'm happy to answer anything! ^_^



I'd also like to direct you to Dreamland: Awakening. A currently-running RPG by Kal the Guardian, Dreamland is a great game that I, sadly, have not had much time to play. Regardless, Kal, too, hopes to finish it, and so your support would be greatly appreciated. :)

RPG Contest #23 has begun. So here's my schedule for the next two weeks regarding Day Run:

March 2-4 - Finish editing and enter Day Run.
March 10 - Broken Unity rewrite begins.
At some point in the next three weeks - A continuation of "One" will be posted.


Also, some exciting news! Yesterday my school district had a Junior Career Convention, where we basically learned a bunch of stuff relating to getting jobs. I talked to one of the speakers there and he told me that he would get me in touch with a columnist/novelist in Eugene, OR -- which means that some sort of writing based job could very well be in my near future! :D

Nothing's set in stone at the moment, however. But still; something is bound to come out of this. ^_^

Streamlining Day Run

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Feb 16 2012 · 51 views

Two days late. Oh well.

Anyway, as I said in my last entry, I need to modify and streamline Day Run's opening post for the RPG contest next month. Frankly, it's a bit cluttered right now, and I'm not entirely sure that some of the stuff still in it needs to be there. At the moment, I'm planning on shortening some of the longer sections and updating information with the Factions section to be more up to date, but aside from that, I'm not sure what all I should modify.

So, that in mind, I'm looking for peoples' suggestions on what sections/rules/other things need to be edited. As well, I want to ask for your opinions -- if you played the game or observed it to a point where you have a legitimate gripe with the way I've run things, I would like to know what you all think I could do better as Day Run's GM if it comes back. Basically, how can I improve the game and the way I run it?

Thanks in advance. =)

Aaaand That's That

Posted by Parugi , in Day Run: The Garden Jan 09 2012 · 37 views

Looks like it's done.

All right; well, if I do say so myself, based off of that last link the story cut off in a decent spot, so I'm not terribly sad. Once again, it was great playing with everyone for the last year; here's hoping we can get another season in March.

And if not -- there's always the epic. ^_^
