No, I don't think you're reading quite right. :) *Ra'lhen has been *offered a spot in the Sentinels.

 

Edit: I realize how caustic sounding that phrasing was so I added a smile

Oh yes, I mean, Ronkshou, now Ra'lhen, has been offered a spot.

That's not actually bad.

Can I just say that not every post with more than three paragraphs needs to have "some suggested listening"? At first, it was a special and legitimate way to amp up the emotion behind a post, but as of late it's been cheapened to the point of silliness. I of course have no clout and by no means intend to make people stop linking to Youtube videos before their posts, but in my opinion it's often not needed and is really kind of irritating to see.

There is not all that much difference between having suggested listening for a post and putting music in a movie scene. Both of them help set the mood and give the reader/viewer an idea of the pace.

Well... good luck with that. The Piraka aren't exactly known for their hospitality. I'll give you a generous estimate of thirty seconds before your Skakdi becomes dog food.

What do the Piraka like that they could have a chance to bribe them?

What do the Piraka like... here's a list, based off my intimate personal experience with the gang:

  • Destroying people
  • Destroying places
  • Destroying things
  • Destroying societies
  • Bickering
  • Being the boss
  • Thinking they're smart
  • Thinking other people/Piraka are stupid
  • Laughing at aforementioned stupidity
  • Puns
  • Slapstick comedy
  • Miscellaneous wisecracks
  • Rebellion
  • Anarchy
  • Weapons
  • Bullying
  • Exclusivity
  • Power
  • Wealth
  • Notoriety
  • Others' misery
  • Each others' misery

Flaredrick, it's generally a bad idea. The Nuva couldn't stand up to them, much less our underpowered characters.

I am of the opinion that accompanying soundtracks should be reserved for special occasions, and that there should be some space between. So far I've only done it three times, and I don't see another coming on the horizon in the immediate future.

 

Some big posts work just fine without music. At the risk of sounding arrogant, the post linked by Shadowhawk (to which yours truly contributed) up there is a good example.

 

The general impression I've been given is that adding a song or a soundtrack to a post is mostly for when something really important character-wise is happening.

 

I hold no ill will towards those who think otherwise, that's just my take on it.

As somebody who uses music in my posts fairly often, I feel like I should at least contribute to this discussion.

 

I always use a rule for it. It's the same rule I apply to most forms of storytelling I do. Always ask yourself "does this enhance the experience or narrative?". And if the answer is no, then I don't. However, often I write posts to a specific track, and afterwards I do a lot of tweaking so chances are you'd read the post as it was intended to be heard with the accompanying track. I've done this before with movie scores and some songs.

If it does not make it better, I avoid using music, which I think is a good rule. But that's just me. Although it is everybody's right to do this, I would suggest applying a similar rule. But again, that's just me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As I stated above, I have no intention of trying to stop anyone who does it, I was simply stating my opinion. If you want to have music before your post, by all means go for it, but in my opinion it should be saved for special instances.

Well, thanks Kughii! That's pretty good; I expect the Mask of Possibilities is one of the harder Kanohi to sketch, but you pulled off the feat with unprecedented skill. Nicely done. :)

Although, to be entirely honest, due to my exceedingly, incredibly, overwhelmingly picky perfectionist's mindset as regards artwork of any sort, and in particular, artwork featuring my main BZPRPG character, I'm not going to be accepting it as her canonical appearance by any means, but I certainly do appreciate it just the same. And it shall remain forever immortalized upon her wiki page, for the benefit of all. ;)

A little reminder, from the guidelines post in this topic:

 

The linking to – but not discussion of – BZPRPG-related artworks (podcasts, drawings, interpretive dances, etc.) is encouraged in the N&D topic, as such artworks are usually really fun and somehow inspiring. For those of you linking to your artworks, be sure that a discussion link is, if separate, also included.

Welcome to the game! As of now anyone is welcome to join anytime, even if it is close to finishing. Maybe this link can help. And last time I checked, the 2013 arc isn't close to being done, but the staff have the best info on that. Hope that helps!
