Isn't 30 pages more of a novella?

What's it about, generally?  Like, what's the theme?  30 pages is a bit much, unless they are small pages.

Ok, maybe you two don't get the point.  This is a full size novel, but it is unfinished.  I imagine that the entire piece would stretch to 2-300 pages.  The initial point of this thread was to see whether or not it would be worth my time to finish.

Twas just a simple understanding :P

I'll start going over what I had already written tomorrow and I'll upload a new version within the next couple days.

What's it about, generally?  Like, what's the theme?

It's a typical fantasy setting, y'kno with swords and wizards and dragons and such.

*puts on kanye mask*
naah i'm not going to ruin your dreams and aspirations like you do to mine...everyday

Yea that NG reference is pretty fail man


Why don't you put on here some of the pictures of the junk you drew in school in here? Least I think you drew stuff for this.


remember kids if it's 30 pages of boredom a pretty picture makes it up to 33.3, repeating of course, percent better

Well, first of all my scanner's broken, secondly I don't have a tablet, and thirdly I can't do art on a pc for sh*t unless it's pixel art.

However, most of the stuff I was drawing was your Saihu characters.  The rest of it was split between M:tG Planeswalkers and avatar concept art for Whirled that I never bothered making due to the above three reasons.

Well if every game on my computer simultaneously stops working maybe I'll read it, knowing you its more subtle rip offs of games you've played instead of using an original plot



....isn't that right?

The sprites he made for his ongoing fantasy world thingy, GS knows it as the Kaizer Saihu RPG.  I call the whole thing in general Saihu.

Oh, and no.  Ripping off other people's concepts is your job.  Golbezza satellite, anyone?  Or how about Ezroth 7 Zeal is the same complex as Cloud & Sephiroth?  The list goes on.

GC is, or at least will, stand apart from a lot of other works.  It might not look like it at this stage, but unlike you I won't divulge the secrets so easily.

Edit: Oh wow, that ridiculously crappy drawing because, well the three reasons at the top.  Plus I was using the GFX editor in MultiMedia Fusion 2, which isn't exactly, well anywhere near decent.  It only has 16-bit color, which is why that looks like a denim jacket.

Never said I didn't  ::), I could get into the details of how this is really a spin-off of the real story but hey, why kill the fun

That'd be cool, doubt it though. Yea though I do divulge secrets a lot...more of them to you than anyone else though ::)

I was wondering why you have it myself.  Actually, you reminded me to upload something to the doodles & sketches thread via my DSi camera.  I think I'll do so now.

Take this to PMs please.

Anyway, all I can say is that the intro is a tad confusing.
