MVP (Most Valuable Posts)

Back when I stared the site in late 2008, my first actual series was called World Creation. In it, I spent fifteen posts creating a pseudo-steampunkish setting that could support a more detailed storytelling or roleplaying project. There’s some of my early short stories mixed in there. Keep in mind that my style’s come a long way over the past few years, as has–to a lesser extent–my proofreading.

Of my various LetsPlayeries, the most popular and enduring is my now-concluded Morrowind series, In a Hostile Country: The Saga of Cahmel. Inside these posts you’ll find streaking, drug dealing, treason, assault and battery, robbery, and a campaign of personal shame and failure stretched over the most xenophobic and inhospitable island in existence.

Equally popular and failure-prone–but a lot shorter–is my Dwarf Fortress LP Kahdzbar’s Journal. Journal concerns the fortress-building antics of Kahdzbar, disgraced dwarf noble and staggering optimist, as he tries to turn infertile soil and barren rock into the foundations of a mighty empire. I won’t spoil the ending, but you can probably just about guess how well that works out.

If you’re into watching people lie, manipulate, scheme, backstab, and corrupt the gentle and honest intentions of people into alabaster engines of evil, you might want to check out Wolf in the Playground, my account of playing the head evil role in a forum-based long-haul Mafia game.

If you’re in the market for a really good crab net, I can’t actually help you on that one, but would suggest finding a supplier online. Shop around, it’s a competitive market.

My magnum opus is the fiction project Vatsy and Bruno. There’s serial chapters of it scattered around the site and stuff, but I’d recommend skipping straight to the compiled, edited version above. It’s also available for the Kindle for less than a buck.

If you want to look at some pictures of things that have words on them that sustain a narrative (known colloquially as a “visual optical graphic storytelling delivery vessels”), then here’s three of those kinds of pictures.

If you want to look at some pictures of ensnared emperor crabs, I also don’t have that? I guess just use Google Image search. I don’t think there’s any sites that specialize in…wait, this isn’t, like, a thing, is it? I’ve been on the internet too long to dismiss any wacko subculture out of hand. Wacko.

I’ve done a few iterations of a game called Darker and Edgier in which I take an innocent series, warp it into something barely recognizable, and make people guess what it was originally. You can play along here, here, and here.

King crabs–also referred to as stone crabs–are a family of crabs commonly caught for culinary purposes. This can be attributed to their large size and palatable wait a minute, why am I doing it now? Is this…is this contagious? What did you do? What the hell did you do? Answer me, dammit! I am going to start getting some answers here or else

    That is a self-defeating prophecy

    You really need to put LPs into seperate catagories. It made it really difficult to read your Dwarf Fortress LP.
