  1. Re: The Daily Dealings of a Merchant

    An extremely belated welcome

    August 26, AD 2015

    Hello and greetings to this extremely late first blog post!

    Ok, after forgetting for a long time about this I've decided to start it back up...
  2. Re: Memoirs of a Lost Kingdom - SS6.4 (SSHIP) AAR

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess it will be ok if you're going to be posting a CW piece and an AAR possibly in the future. Hope to see you writing again even if it will be something different...
  3. Re: The Stormy Skies (Updated 25/04) More PG 13 violence

    Oooh yes war I do love war. Great last two chapters, really great dialogue and the fight between Crowl and Loran was both entertaining and humorous. Marrisa and Grant's past seems as mysterious as...
  4. Re: Titanium Core: Borderlands (Updated 25/4/15)

    A more relaxing chapter but it held some good backstory and I felt that that can only ever enhance a story. So great job as always.

    Re: Tranquility

    Interesting poem. I like the image of a battle weary soldier searching for peace and the idea that all that humanity has worked for and the devastation that we have brought will all be undone in time.
  7. Re: The Bear and the Tiger: Two Roads to Kyoto

    I wonder how you'll portray the infamous vespa samurai? Good start and interesting decision on choosing two clans. Not quite sure how that is going to work still but I'm sure it will be interesting...
  8. Re: A Long Way From Home - A Skyrim AAR [updated 19th April 2015]

    I read the latest chapter as soon as you posted it but I forgot to comment and then forgot to comment again so I apologise for you delay. Wonderful writing as always and congrats on that 2nd place....
  9. Re: Way of the Bow:A Chosokabe AAR-(Updated Chapter XXIX 20/4)

    Thank you I'm glad you are, as I've said before, Suzume will have a lot of chapters in the near future so I hope people find her arc interesting.
  10. Poll: Re: MAARC LVII Second Place Tiebreaker!

    As with previous scenarios, I think we'll just call it even and declare you both as second place and then give third to whoever got the third amount. Winners thread will be up tomorrow.

  12. Re: Titanium Core: Borderlands (Updated 20/4/15)

    Yes, Talia survived I thought for a second you were going to be a mean man and kill her off. Great scene with Braedan and Edhen and then Brax interrupting. Oh his naivety is somewhat refreshing.

    It is a pleasure to serve you McScottish-tono.
  14. Re: The Sons of Herakles and Zeus - A sci-fi set in the past in the future! [Updated: -/-/-]

    So many stories so little time.

    Looks thoroughly interesting though and not only are you combining two of your favourite things but also two of the Writer's Study's favourite things, considering...
  15. Re: The Stormy Skies (Updated 14/04)

    I like the idea of them all having been in a sort of gang and past grudges coming back. I can't wait until this 25th anniversary, with the stuff with Loran and Carson likely to pay a visit, it's...
  16. Re: "What Is Best In Life?" - A Shogun II Hojo AAR [Updated: 20/04/2015]

    Wow, that was unexpected. That really turns the tables. I don't know whether I like Ujimasa more or less now I know his motives but also after he made Ichirou submit. Powerful stuff.

    1559- Mid-summer

    It had taken only a day for Suzume to come to grips with what escaping from something was really like. It was terrifying,...
  18. Re: From the Soil to the Sword ~ An Ikko-Ikki AAR for Shogun II [Updated: -/-/-]

    Ahh yes foolish to think the great master did not have that book. I thought for once I had some useful information to share but clearly I don't :(

    Anyway, looking forward to seeing the first...
  19. Re: Of Souls - Updated: Chapter 7 | 18/04/15

    Ooooh that makes things a bit more difficult for Alfonso. For Alfonso sake, let's hope the war goes well and Gavier errr.... disappears.

    Actually, please don't make Gavier disappear considering...
  20. Re: From the Soil to the Sword ~ An Ikko-Ikki AAR for Shogun II [Updated: -/-/-]

    We gave up long ago trying to stop you my dear Scottish friend. Also if you are starting an Ikko Ikki AAR I highly suggest Stephen Turnball's The Samurai and the Sacred it covers the role and...
  21. Re: The Sun Never Sets... - An AAR of Britain for Imperial Splendour [Updated: 19/04/2015]

    I wonder what his father is going to say about this..... But does our protagonist have enough steel and bravery to become one of the Argyle Fencibles?
  22. Re: A Stranger in a Strange Land - An FoTS Saga [Updated: 17/04/2015]

    A brilliant and ominous start. I've recently started playing FotS again and in fact loving the actually useful artillery and the railroads. The bit about the Alice in Wonderland Book was a nice touch...
  23. Re: "What Is Best In Life?" - A Shogun II Hojo AAR [Updated: 19/04/2015]

    The wider picture was helpful indeed and also provided an interesting side to our protagonist. But I am a bit confused. Are the Date allies or enemies? Or allies only for now?

    I look forward to...
  24. Re: Way of the Bow:A Chosokabe AAR-(Updated Chapter XXVIII 13/4)

    Well I can tell you it will probably drop lower with some of things he is going to do in future chapters.



    Ahhh yes, how long indeed.....

    Next chapter will be up on Monday
  25. Re: Way of the Bow:A Chosokabe AAR-(Updated Chapter XXVIII 13/4)

    Thanks for reading and the kind words. I must say I love the pic, you drew it yourself? Wonderful, I might use it when advertising my AAR. Is that Emura Akara or Suzume behind the matchlocks? Either...

  31. Re: The Stormy Skies (Updated 14/04)

    Some more great combat descriptions but damn Carson got away. Melissa and Grant's interchanges were nicely done as well, I hope we see more of them both together.
  32. Re: Titanium Core: Borderlands (Updated 14/4/15)

    Great dialogue between Edhen and Braedan and her reaction with Brax was priceless.
  33. Re: TW: Attila- A Series of Vignettes

    Some really good writing here and intriguing indeed. Nice atmosphere as well that really embodies not just the game but the period of time generally. Hope to see some more of these.
  34. Re: Of Souls - Updated: Chapter 6 | 14/04/15

    Loving the soulsmithing. Actually, while reading Gavier's chapter I realised how cool it would be to make this into a video game, man soulsmithing would be a cool form of magic. Plus rep when I can
