Skipping Across a Pond

That was a scare.

Posted by Nara , in BZPower Feb 20 2013 · 129 views

I didn't realize that the blog tab moved over, so when I went to click on blog, I clicked into the tracker instead.

Only saw the two categories, assumed they were blogs, freaked out that somehow all of the blogs were deleted, and then saw Six's avatar on the side and the word blog, so I assumed it was an apology for the server having a hiccup.

But then I found the actual tab.


It was like a bad dream, man.

Well, Look at That

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, Pokemon Feb 16 2013 · 103 views

We're back on. ^-^

I kinda want to MOC again. Maybe in a while.


In Pokemon-related news, Sylveon has been official released. Probably won't be using it in X/Y, but nice to see we have more Eeveelutions. It almost seems like we're getting a lot of names with uncommon letters, but that's really only with Xerneas, Yveltal, and Sylveon.


Also, I plan on playing through each generation and remake. Pokemon Blue, Gold, Sapphire, LeafGreen, Pearl, HeartGold, Black, and White 2. Hopefully by the time I finish them all, X and Y will be released. =P

Assassins and Updates

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, Pokemon, SciO Feb 05 2013 · 133 views

No not assassin's creed.

So, our SciO team wins a spirit award at this one invite every year, and this year, we're winning it by having a game of Assassins. All day, secret alliances, winner gets a bag of skittles.

And I intend to win.


Also, that BZP countdown thing is nice. I like it.


Also, basically no progress on the RotR game. My chance to go to state for SciO is on the line, so.. yeah. Not to mention that I'm getting this odd glitch that I'm not sure how to fix, but the maps are done. I guess I could give out an awful demo, I'll put in some NPCs if you guys want.

Erm..

What compelled someone to put the Amazon Cloud on BZP? If the rules don't even allow mentioning other forums, then they'd probably have a heart attack if they saw what was tagged. You know, being a kid-friendly site. If you get what I'm saying.

This Bar

Posted by Nara , in BZPower Jan 28 2013 · 145 views

This notification bar. I like it.

Although it does go behind the blog windows, it's useful. It probably goes behind reply and topic windows as well..

No matter. I can go to my notifications without opening a bunch of tabs now. ^-^

Name Change and SciO

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, SciO Jan 25 2013 · 106 views

Decided to change my name because I've stuck with my old username for the entire time. I don't think it'll mess with people, since I've had my avatar and sig for a while now.


Now, more SciO stuff! Another invite tomorrow, really freaking out about this one but I'm determined to win in Forestry.

Surprisingly, my partner and I won fifth in Fermi last time, not sure how that happened. 10th in Experimental, 8th in Forestry, and 8-13th in MagLev. Ranks will be increasing tomorrow. They better. =D

Busy Busy Busy

Posted by Nara , in IRL, BZPower, School, Pokemon Jan 15 2013 · 173 views

I have a perfectly logical explanation for my lack of activity on here.
 
SCHOOL.
 
Unlike most other people, I have my finals in two days as opposed to before Christmas, so teachers are cramming. Which means homework. Add Science Olympiad into that and you've got yourself a negative amount of free time!
 
I think it's taken a toll on my sanity.
 
 
However, that being said, I have almost no time to do anything but school. Which means that, unfortunately, Alpha 0.0.1 of Operation Rally will be pushed back. As for how far back, I can't really say. After finals, I've got an elongated weekend, so maybe some progress will happen there and things will be back on track? I dunno. SciO is at a higher priority than the game right now, but I usually have a lot of downtime during competitions.

I'll get back to work soon, I promise.

Oh Look

Posted by Nara , in BZPower, School Jan 07 2013 · 139 views

Seems like the quote boxes are fixed.

I do like this a lot. =D


In other news, I should be asleep right now because winter break technically ends in an hour and school returns tomorrow. So meh, tired am I not.

But I did learn that two weeks without writing anything really messes with your handwriting. Not that mine was legible before, but now it seems difficult to write stuff. ._.

BZP Age and Stories

Posted by Nara , in Writing, BZPower Nov 25 2012 · 82 views

It's odd, to me, that I am older than some people who I'd figure to be older than I. Join date wise, anyway. Maybe it's my post count compared to theirs.


In other news, I think I'm going to have a second shot at an Epic. My first one was back in my first year here, I think, and while I finished it, I don't really like how it's written.

Actually it may be one of the only stories I've finished. Ever.

So yeah. I've got a plot in mind, but there are also a mess of characters who are essential to the plot but may not be relevant to the story at any given point. Regardless, I'm going to try to give personality and background to these characters. However, there are sixteen and I initially planned on spending a week with each character to flesh it out more, but I don't think I can wait 16+ weeks before beginning to write. So I'll do it in pairs, since that's how they show up in story.

Actually it's kinda really eight characters with a partner but those are only the [currently] important Matoran/Toa. I currently don't have any Turaga created, and I envision there to be six. I also don't have any antagonists, and I'm debating on whether they'll be Dark Hunters or Makuta. Chances are, it'll be both, but not at the same time.

I'm Premier! Feels good to give back.

Still working on the blog, doesn't help that I've changed it every anniversary I've had it.
