  1. Re: An Ebdanian AAR: With love from the Emerald Isle

    A long one, but a satisying one.



    With Wales under my control, albeit slightly unhappy due to me murdering all of them, I set my sights on the rest of the province of Britannia Inferior. Of...
  2. An Ebdanian AAR: With love from the Emerald Isle (Updated 05/02/16)

    So, with my writing currently in a rut so deep that you'd need a sub that could dive to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, I decided to play some Attila. Like many, I bought this game expecting very...

    Ugh...so, where do I begin?

    First of all, sorry for the lack of update this week. Honestly, for a long time I was able to keep ahead for a long time because I'd written much of the early chapters...

    Re: Machines (CW/Sci-Fi)

    You are damned good at this whole dramatic escape nonsense. You certainly have me eager for more. Keep up the good work!

    Re: Writers' Study Yearly Awards 2015

    I must confess that I have kept my nominations to the CW section, honestly I haven't read many AARs. Anyway, lets get to it.

  9. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 20/12/15) New updates every Sunday!

    So, with about three weeks worth of forum lost to the ether, I'll re add all of the chapters that were lost. No new one this week, I've been busy with exams throughout the week and spending spare...
  10. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 06/12/15) New updates every Sunday!

    Thaddeus kept a wary eye on the alleys on either side of the cobbled roads. Beside him, Hralfur had a hand on his scimitar. In six months of training, he’d grown impressively, to the point that men...

    The Skymaster's Shadow

  12. Sticky: Re: Writers' Study Chat and Feedback - Ask all your questions here!

    Personally I always found the main issue with readability in AARs was with poor paragraph spacing. In my mind, images don't add much unless it's about a battle where context is all important in...
  13. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 15/11/15) New updates every Sunday!

    Sorry about no update last week. I had Latin to study for. Anyway, now things get exciting.

    Re: Shadows and Dust (Updated: 10/26/15)

    The pirate is pretty damned cool, giving the three of them the slip like that. Bishop is still extremely cool, like his role as a de facto leader of the group. All in all, an excellent story thus...
  15. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 15/11/15) New updates every Sunday!

    The docks were packed as Carson, wearing his disguise, weaved through the crowds of sailors. The attention seemed to be focused on his destination, the Sickle, which made him feel slightly queasy. If...

    The Skymaster's Shadow

    Far to the south of Isim lies the heathen Principality of Hierofalt. The news of war comes to them at long last and their Prince must answer Nosorum's declaration, one way...
  18. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 08/11/15) New updates every Sunday!

    The week went by, and Nosorum’s grim decision spread far and wide, like a pebble in a small pond, its ripples spreading further and further with each passing hour. First it was to other cities in...

    Re: The European Refugee Crisis

    Some refugees (Or economic migrants) can afford people smugglers, smart phones and throw away food (The last one sticks in my craw.) Many cannot and it's quite the generalisation to say that.

    26 years previously

    The sun was just beginning to vanish over the horizon, as Thaddeus looked out from the deck of the Sickle. He was reflecting, as he often did on his time off. At the ripe old...
  24. Sticky: Re: Writers' Study Chat and Feedback - Ask all your questions here!

    Indeed. I consider it to be similar to the layout of an old timey English Mansion. Yes, the big house is the most important,but once your inside the house it's the garden that keeps you interested.

  25. Re: The Skymaster's Shadow (Updated: 18/10/15) New updates every Sunday!

    The historical connection between the two men is pivotal, hence why the next chapter will focus on them. This story, while ultimately a way to show the future to the Stormy Skies is very much a story...

    It can often feel that way unfortunately. The trick is to write every major arc as its own separate story, complete with likeable character, before adding them at the end of the previous arc. That's...

    The Skymaster's Shadow

    Carson Hardcastle comes face to face with Thaddeus Jenkins, the old pioneer of flight who wishes to give him an offer he cannot refuse.

    Re: Chapter 1- The Judgment

    The Skymaster's Shadow

    The King is dead. Isim stands on the brink of war. And Carson Hardcastle is about to meet someone who will introduce him to the finer points of war.
