Title: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on July 29, 2013, 04:08:29 pm
I'm making this thread ahead of time :P

As most of you know, Halloween is on the last day of October.
Taylor and I have been talking about it for... who knows how long exactly :P

When I asked Taylor in the well she's in (http://shanescavestory.createaforum.com/off-topic/the-well-taylor~/) this:
Should the secret plans of the future be mentioned already?
I was referring to the project of Halloween 2013! :)

So, for the rest of October, Taylor thought, we could have scary avatars and different user names and such, fitting Halloween, and then the first week of November, we could vote for the scariest avatar and coolest user name. Taylor already chose her user name. And I did, too. (It's long.)
The one who wins the poll will get a pumpkin badge, I suppose (yay).
(Note: the different user names will be different, but you can log in using your original user name. [As far as I know.])

If you'd like to sign up for this now, just post in this thread the user name you'd like to use come October.
(You don't need to change your avatar now, you can do that in October. :P)

List of participants:
(Date of sign-up: original user name -> new user name)


NOTE: User names must be a maximum of 60 letters. There's nothing I can do about this, sadly.
Above, those that exceed 60 letters will have a line through them - only the letters above the sixtieth one, of course.
For example:
Il'andri'iel the Dark King of Devastation and Doomed Planets that no Longer Exist
The name will appear, but "that no Longer Exist" won't.

Also, new user names are to be posted using the [tt][/tt] code.
Wouldn't want to accidentally make mistakes now, right?

EDIT BY TAYLOR:
If a member doesn't want a name change, it's also documented in this thread: the member's name will be changed to the same name. :P
See above: KarjamP remains KarjamP.

EDIT BY SHANE:
Poll has been added and will close at 11 November 2013, 22:35 [GMT+2].
Only participants will be listed there.

Sounds fun :)
Hey how about this:
Time the Twisted Guardian of Hell and Death's Ghostly Apprentice
(Kind of random,ain't it? :P)
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on July 29, 2013, 04:27:11 pm
Added to the list on the first post. :)
And yes, it's pretty random :P
For once, even more random than me ;D

Post by: Shane on July 29, 2013, 04:48:22 pm
Added to the list. I also checked to see whether the forums will allow it.

However, while I was doing so, I found a problem: names are limited to 60 letters. :(
I had to shorten mine.
Dr. Time, your name is almost okay, except "apprentice" won't fit in (the entire name is 64 letters long).

Gunshots of innocent people with Death riding Famine's horse in the War which is Conquered by Pestilence.
It's definitely longer than 60 letters.
"Gunshots of innocent people with Death riding Famine's horse" will fit in, but the rest won't.

Also, you ninja'd me again :P

... I think I ought to add a rule regarding this thread: all name changes for Halloween are to be posted in this thread using the [tt][/tt] BB Code.

Either way, I apologize for this oversight. I blame myself, and not thinking about using that BB Code for this. Something like this, I suppose?

IN ADDITION, your post contradicts the previous one anyway :P

Once an Inhuman, called such a thing,
An illness follows, oftentimes fatal,
A lone cure, existing as a symbol of a heart,
The elemental heart healing the ailment.

Suffering on a planet, stuck in a hospital,
Meteor storms arise as suddenly as the illness,
Smashing all of the relatives into dust,
Inside nightmares of the diseased.

Suffering as a patient, inside hospital,
Thunderstorms rise up and thunder away,
Destroying signals of all sorts, no more world wide webs,
Striking thunder, hidden lightning.

Suffering inside a hospital, requiring an IV drip,
The ground trembles in fear of the sufferer's suffering,
Hidden truths come to light as the sufferer breathes his/her last,
And later on, eternal silence...

The darkness of sorrow, having reaped its victim,
Searching on for another victim to add to its kill count,
The Scythe of Raven hungers for more souls,
Killed by a single word, Raven mourns the dead.

Nevermore will the relatives of the deceased smile,
For their grief is eternal due to only one word,
Such a devastating loss results in a turn of sides,
Good becoming evil, evil becoming evil.

Chanting a simple phrase thrice, Sanuba is summoned,
The being with an energy signature of over two hundred gazillion,
Planning to destroy existence itself, its evil smirk twisted and dark,
The pursuit of truth overtaken by the evils of darkness.


...

So much randomness. :-\
Thanks, Polaris and Dr. Time :P
You gave me an idea :)

Title: Re: Halloween 2013

It may as well, although I don't have a clue what's going on here. :-\
Taylor's in charge of this thing.

Also, I'll be going as Corrupted Shane: Friendly Dark Master and Inhuman Fighter.
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Taylor on September 11, 2013, 11:00:20 am
Uhm... "Friendly"?
If I may ask, what kind of corrupted person is friendly? :o
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Polaris on September 11, 2013, 11:20:25 am
A friendly one, duh :P
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on September 11, 2013, 02:16:16 pm
Uhm... "Friendly"?
If I may ask, what kind of corrupted person is friendly? :o
One under hypnosis, perhaps?
Also, there are Dark-type Pokmon that can be friendly, whether it's a ruse or not.
The anime is proof of that, I think. :P

I don't celebrate Halloween, so I would be myself.
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on September 12, 2013, 02:31:39 pm
My impostor may celebrate it, but I don't.
Yet I chose to remain. Why?
For a pumpkin badge, I guess.

Speaking of which, I've noticed that there is no such badge yet.
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Dr. Time on September 12, 2013, 02:37:20 pm
I guess the impostor wanted to make one. But he won't.
Maybe YOU could?
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on September 12, 2013, 02:43:13 pm
Yeah... the moment I find a pic for such a badge. :o
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Taylor on September 12, 2013, 02:50:11 pm
Actually, I keep putting it off until October. I meant to add one, but I keep forgetting.
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on September 30, 2013, 10:12:52 pm
Okay! As of today, everyone's forum names have been changed for Halloween, along with the forum style.
This change will last until the end of October, which we will then vote for whoever has the scariest avatar.

(I still have to choose mine. :o)

If you want to change your name to something else for Halloween, but you haven't done so yet, do so now ;)

KarjamP will remain as KarjamP, by the way. Why?
Because he's KarjamP. And it's his choice, too.
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Taylor on September 30, 2013, 10:24:45 pm
Oh damn. I just noticed that my avatar isn't dressed entirely in black! D:
Well, there's nothing I can do about it now.
Crysandrea's currently disabled, perhaps even forever. :(

Anyway, let's have some fun, shall we?

As Wayne changed his forum name manually, the first post has been updated.

Colonel Neuman, can you elaborate on this?
Title: Re: Halloween 2013
Post by: Shane on October 03, 2013, 09:00:17 pm
I thank you, my prince... wait, Colonel? The prince's a colonel too?
Apparently it is as mr. Snake said.
I am not only prince, but also colonel.
Therefore, I am Prince Colonel Shane Neumann, the Friendly Dark Master and Corrupted Inhuman Fighter.
Something like that.
You understand, do you not, Xylorta?

Colonel Neuman, can you elaborate on this?
That's Neumann with two N's at the end.
Anyway, I suspect that Xylorta is referring to my being administrator of this very forum...

* crash *

... and I think some fourth wall has just been shattered out of this world.

Crysandrea betrayed us.


They said V3 would come in august.

But all of the things were false hope.

They finished it. Forever.



My journey will not stop now. I will not rest until my steed's hooves trap them so their heads can meet the ghastly edge of my schythe.


I'm coming for you. You may as we'll be running now......



Yay randomness!


But yes, they did finish the thing. No more Crysandrea now. Now I only have TEKTEK......
