#485348 moving Wicktures that you are watching

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 18 August 2017 - 07:25 AM

Well, Ocelot, thanks for reminding me that I should post my thoughts about this, since I actually saw this film a while back.

 

I have to agree with you about the humor. One of the big things that irked me about the film was how hard they tried with the humor. It was like they thought that the only way that they could top the first movie was inserting random jokes into places they didn't belong. Like when Ego is dumping important exposition about how he was able to take on human form, and Drax randomly interrupts to make a sex joke, or the whole Taserface thing. Even kid's films (sometimes) know when not to put in a joke, but Guardians of the Galaxy 2 didn't.

 

The other thing that really bothered me was how they handled Ego. Apparently, Marvel and Fox traded characters, and Marvel got Ego while Fox got Teenage Negasonic Warhead. Well, all I can say is that I hope Fox enjoys using her in multiple Deadpool/X-men films, because Marvel somehow managed to waste an entire freaking planet in one movie. Other Marvel Villains can get away with being forgettable or one-off characters, but Ego's not getting away with this, because on top of being your typical MCU villain, they also go out of their way to make their own sort of Darth/Vader/Luke Skywalker thing, where they're like:

 

Spoiler

 

It's bad enough that they created another MCU stereotype, but they also tried to do a star wars style thing as well? Did some marvel guys and some lucasfilm guys go to a bar, got really slammed, and decided to write this as a sequel to one of the best marvel movies made recently? WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA

 

Oh yeah, and a character died at the end because all marvel DC superhero films need a mentor/surrogate father death to be taken seriously, but at least his death brought together backup Guardians of the Galaxy for when George R. R. Martin Marvel kills everybody off in Infinity War lol

#485244 ZONE: The Rusty Axe

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 16 July 2017 - 04:59 PM

"This is beautiful Hori, thank you!"

 

"It's a strange thing, exotic yet ugly. Looks like you, Agnar."

 

"I'm in your debt, Hori, these things are hard to come by."

 

"It's no trouble," Hori said humbly as he dug into his food to hide his embarrassment "just a token of appreciation for the good service that you all have given me in the years that I've been here."

 

"I'd certainly say so. Their culture is just as ancient as Old Achaea, and there's a lot of rich history to be around... But if you go too far out of civilization, you'd better really like sand."

 

"That's true enough." Hori chimed in "I'm still finding small caches of it in my possessions."

 

As if to emphasize this, a stream of sand trickled out of the small idol he had given to Dargnin.

 

"I do not believe I heard your name," Hori said to the knight "I am Hori Holdensfarn, and who might you be?"

#485209 ZONE: The Rusty Axe

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 11 July 2017 - 01:06 PM

"I'll go and put the kettle on. The pie will be a few minutes."

 

"Thank you,Yel -" Hori began, but the girl left the room before he could finish.

 

"Hori! How are things?"

 

"It is good to see you Dargnin," the Old Man replied "I've actually just returned from the Deep South."

 

"I bought this brew from a trader on his way to Illikon, excellent stuff."

 

Hori thanked the Bartender as he accepted both his drink and his food, and then produced his satchel.

 

"I have something for you three as well," He explained as he opened his bag "During my time in the South, I came by some things that might interest the three of you."

 

What he produced were a small statuette, a necklace, and a small wooden box.

 

"I bought this from a smuggler in Khemet," he said as he handed the small statue to Dargnin "and he swore that the lizard people in the deep jungles actually worship these things. He also told me it brings good fortune, but a Templar I met told me it was cursed and tried to break it. I'm not sure who to believe."

 

"I bought this from the same man." he continued as he handed the necklace to Yel "He claimed that it was from a chieftain's daughter from the Deep South, and I think it would look well on you."

 

"And I actually obtained this from a dealer in Vertishire." he finished as he handed the box to Agnar "It's fire root; made from peppers that tribesmen grow in the south. I tried a little and had to drink water for an hour before the burning in my mouth went away."

Stranded has officially started!

 

Anyone who wishes to join up after this point will have to wait for me to introduce them to start rp-ing. 




#485206 Zone - Shipwreck Cove ((Stranded - START))

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 11 July 2017 - 12:45 PM

From a bird's eye view, the cove looked peaceful. Blue water crashing against a rocky beach, the whole thing surrounded by walls of rock.

 

But the aftermath of the storm made it look completely different.

 

shipwreck_cove_by_yobarte-d4b3jie.jpg

 

Fresh driftwood and pieces of the Greenhawk were scattered all over the place, in addition to the rotten hulks of older wrecks. Among these were other Achaean vessels, some southern pirating ships, and even an Inquisitorial frigate. What made it worse were the corpses scattered among the wreckage, in addition to the skeletons from other such incidents in the past.

 

The survivors stood shivering in three separate groups; the Imperial Skirmishers, the Ship's crew, and the oar slaves. Even though they were all from different social classes, they all had one thing that was on their minds:

 

What dangers awaited them on this island?

 

---

 

STRANDED

 

Part I: Landfall

 

Thantos Grenfell looked with open disappointment at what remained of the troops under his command: out of the one hundred skirmishers he had brought with him, less than twenty had survived the storm. Even worse, all of them were under the command of Angus the Butcher, on of the higher-ups' favorites, but a man who Thantos despised due to his brutality. Some of the soldiers under his command, such as Sextus and Gavia, were nice enough, but the rest of them were brutes who looked like they belonged in a gladiatorial pit rather than the Achaean Military.

 

Edmund Hawkin had fared little better than the Imperial Officer: barely enough crew-members to make up even a skeleton crew had made it through the storm. The more memorable ones like Quint had survived, but they would be hard pressed to sail anything back to the known world. 

 

The only one who seemed pleased about this situation was Brute of all people. A surprisingly large amount of slaves had survived the storm, and where now bunched up in a group guarded by several of the Skirmishers. The slaves - including Silmiri and Captivus Vir - looked on with varying levels of fear, resignation, or defiance. Two of the more noticeable slaves were Jon - an enormous man hailing from the deep south of Khemet - and Nigel - a relatively newer addition to the slaves who had been purchased in the North.

 

"Listen up!" Thantos barked as he paced in front of the three groups "were are currently shipwrecked on a island unfamiliar to us, as Captain Hawkin informs me that this place is on non of what few sea charts he was able to recover!"

 

"It's true," Edmund chimed it "from what I can gather, we are on an undiscovered island in uncharted southern waters."

 

"In any case," Thantos continued "we are going to be on leave on this place for an unknown amount of time, we have two options: first, and my personal favorite, we head inland to see if we can head off this place! And sec-!"

 

"And secondly," Edmund interrupted "we could stay here. Maybe we could rebuilt the Greenhawk and get out of this place, but it would take a while. It's a much safer plan than heading inland."

 

The two glared at each other for a moment before the Imperial Officer looked at the group and said "Alright, we'll put it to a vote! Who wants to head inland, and who wants to stay here?"

#485173 ZONE - Rimegard

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 06 July 2017 - 05:16 PM

“Why dontcha jus’ come along an’ have a drink with me, lass? Th’ buildings’ll be here when next y’visit.”

 

"I suppose we do have some time while we wait for the others. Let's go!"

 

Agethar perked up at the sound of a potential meal and moved over to the two dwarves.

 

"If ye don't mind," the Venator said "I would be happy tae join ye; me belly hungers fer food this early in th' mornin'."

 

Maugrimm - who had remained oddly quite throughout most of this journey - gazed that the female dwarf's cat with lazy interest.

 

---

 

"We should press on." 

 

"I agree. We have nothing to gain by staying in the city."

 

Clearly yer all insane. I, fer one, am gonna have a drink. And seein’ as I have th’ map, if any o’ ye want to know were yer goin’, I suggest y’join me.”

 

"The Dwarf is right," Malvolio said, glancing at the others "we should get a chance to resupply before going on the road again."

 

---

 

 "I mean that I am an ally of mages. They are oppressed throughout the Empire, and even Northrim, and this should not be - perhaps, as a foreigner, you don't know the depths of their hatred and the horrors they commit upon those with the Gift. There are others like you who would have your allegiance and offer you aid, if you would have it."

 

Huo stood quietly before responding to Ingi.

 

"You misunderstand; the East is strange on its policies on magic; it is tolerated in some places, and in others it is not. I have had to pass through several such places on my travels, and the Empire and the North are not the first places I've been threatened with death for something I did not ask to have."

 

"And I have met others who offered me aid; if your offer is anything like their's I will have no part of it. I will not waste my life chasing the ambitions of the servants of a Mage Emperor."

I just want to be the first to say that this is magnificent. Although, I admit, Valya came out as looking rather masculine... think it might be the chin. :P

 

But they're both great. I always enjoy your Errant group drawings. :D Caiden and Perky are, if I do say so myself, looking particularly fine in this one.

 

Yeah, probably. 

 

Honestly, its because I caved and changed Caiden's design from what I'd been doing to definitely not Chris Redfield Scorp's design. Percula is just her normal self, so... :P

 

These are brilliant, you've pretty much nailed Elnira despite a very brief character description from me.

 

Thanks! 

 

Feel free to add her and Garandos' pictures into your character sheets if you wish. ;)

 

Also, 300 POSTS IN THIS TOPIC WOOT WOOT  :shades:

 

Anyways, its time for the art!
