Have you read I Am Shale yet? If not, you definitely should. Like right meow. Kruger's such a fan-freaking-tastic writer I just can't even handle it.

So, we were a lil behind in getting it written/posted, but Meet the Gallows should hopefully explain a few recent changes now ^_^

Might be just a lil more to wrap up the overall trip but the meat and potatoes is there.

Big ups to Cooper for finding the time to write with me even when RL is absolutely insane <3

Okay, so here’s the Nitty Gritty from Team Gallows City:

For those of you who were invited to participate in the Last call before the shadows fall thread, this is more or less the writing prompt I promised to outline participation.

ICly, the fight took place late, late Wednesday night (9/20) into early Thursday morning (9/21).


Mostly, the most recent post speaks for itself. I’ve done my best to outline the the setting: the locale, the feeling, the terrain, with just enough detail to give you a visual and still allow for some creative license. As with the setting, I’ve tried to offer up a basic idea of the opposition, allowing for creative license within the confines of the wording offered in the post. The point of this is for you, the wonderful person/people, to get to showcase your character(s) doing something awesome, profound, interpersonal as a supplement to the story I’m trying to tell. Most, if not all of you, have been involved with Cooper the character on various levels for anywhere in upwards of 13+ years and it just feels fitting to ask you to share at least a little of this with me.

That being said, this is the culmination of a long SL arc that has spanned the last 7+(ish) years and I do have some boundaries I would like respected and some other helpful thoughts.

- Please keep your contribution confined to the battlefield provided. There are separate posts (in a separate thread) being written directly impacting the outcome of this, which has already been decided, since I’m currently writing it. What is occurring with Cooper and inside the caern is the subject matter for those posts.

-Be respectful of the setting and the other contributors. There’s no set enemy numbers, so if you want to go hog wild, please do so. Just please remain mindful that other people are participating too.

-Have fun and try to share the enjoyment of this with me. This is a long overdue labor of love and as much as I am looking forward to the end of the arc, I’m excited to see your enjoyment of it too.

-If you have any questions, shoot myself or Claire a PM or IM. I’m terrible about checking site PMs, but I’ll try to remember to keep an eye out.


Thank you so, so much for wanting to be a part of this. It means the world to me.

Happy writing!

-Chris

Did a little clean up and locked up any threads prior to Jan 2017. If you find you need one unlocked, just hit up one of the mods around here. Also updated The Table of Contents! Hard to believe 2017 is almost over. Even harder to believe Lux Aeterna passed the 2000 post mark. From May 2013 until now, that just blows my mind. So thank you to everyone who had contributed over the years. You're all fab <3

Also, we're pondering a folder name change 'round these parts to account for the changes in all of our stories over time. Be on the look out!

Man... 2017 was quite the year for our little creations, huh? The 2017 section of the Table of Contents is officially up to date. Want to see the year in review? Check out the link above!

Big thanks to everyone who was a part of it. Couldn't have done it without you <3

NaNo starts tomorrow, therefore it'll likely be a month minimum before I get anything new in here.

Nearly 6 years I've been here.

1,100+ posts for Claire by herself.

Over 2,000 posts in Lux Aeterna.

167+ threads authored under numerous names of mine (90 of which were in this folder alone).

Dozens upon dozens of characters, stories, and connections made.

And now it is time for me to depart. You know, I used to poke fun at people who wrote out involved goodbye posts but this is a bittersweet moment for me, so bear with me, if you would. I'll try to be brief. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to have created such amazing things with so many fantastic storytellers, writers, and roleplayers. You all are what make this community what it is. Or I should say was.

Sadly RDI is no longer what it once was even just a scant handful of years ago. I no longer feel welcome here despite insincere assurance to the contrary. For too long I have kept my mouth shut in the interest of non-engagement in this issue and this will likely be all I say on the matter. This post is made not as a sport coordinator or "green name" elsewhere but rather as a long standing, contributing player who gave this place her blood, sweat, tears, and words for over half a decade. It reflects on no one's opinion but my own. Sad that I have to say such a thing, but certainly you all know how that goes, right?

Anyways, Lux Aeterna's time on Dragonsmark has come to an end. Our stories have been backed up and if necessary reposted elsewhere. Upon posting this, all other threads save this one will be locked and no longer updated. In interest of not getting this deleted out of the blue, I won't be linking it but I assume y'all know where to find me. If you don't, send me a PM or hit me up on discord under Claire#2278. Shoot me a friend request and a message, I'd be glad to talk.

I am not advocating a boycott, nor would I ever. People should be welcome to play where they wish with whomever they want and to insinuate that anyone has been advocating such a thing is a stretch at best and a libelous attempt at gaslighting at worst. Emotionally manipulative behavior like that cannot be tolerated, at least not by me for something that was supposed to be fun hobby. I've seen stuff like this before and I can say that there is no room for it in my life, not if I am being mindful of my own well being. I am, however, encouraging everyone (friend, foe, stranger, and everything in between) to broaden your horizons. Expand your creativity, never stop pushing yourselves to build and shape your content. After all, what is roleplaying without the beautiful minds behind it?

So much for brief, right? But hey, that's my two bits on my way out. Thank you all again for everything you have contributed to this place. It is nothing without you.

So for now, adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen!

And in the eternal words of Bill & Ted;



-B
Mun of Claire, Addie, JC, Lilith, and many, many others



(Edited to remove smart quotes... seriously guys, that needs to be fixed if this forum is going to be viable going forward. Don't save it for the "forum upgrade" that has been pending for years at this point.)
