WALL EMERGENCY

This is for anything related to on-topic WTF discussion.

WALL EMERGENCY

Postby Gurt on Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:46 pm

ALERT! ALERT!

CTHULHU is approaching the wall.

This is not a Cabal plot. This is not the Teacher. This is not Mr. A. The damn thing must’ve just...gotten hungry.

For limes!

Also, humans.

I don't think we can talk or trick him into turning back. Not with this one. This time, it's got to be a brawl. I'm not looking forward to it, but I believe in my team.

You'll have to write stories, due at the end of the day on the 19th, Eastern Time, which use all of us. Not just one of us. Gather us all from our stations to deal with this threat!

The sad truth is, if you make the story too sunny, it's unlikely to be plausible enough to work. I hate to say it, but I... I fully expect casualties. :(

I know you won't let us down; I hope we will serve you well, too. I am reminded of the Gladiatorial salute, at times like these: "We, who are about to die, salute you."

All of you meaning you as well, Gurt?

Any special fic rules for this? Somebody had already suggested a collab, which would be understandable.

You do realize that we called it from, like, day one? ;)

It's what we all feared would happen.

Okay everyone, time to pull out the big guns. :gurt:

I've written eldritch abominations before. I can write the death of one, too, even one as strong as the high priest of the Great Old Ones. Time to step up. ^^
So, apparently I'm the sanest madman this side of the international date line. Seems legit.

And the official explanation for Cthulhu's appearance is... Tempting Fate.

Nice move. ;)

You are the one who made Psi, aren't you? Could you please explain his powers to make sure I understand them? Come onto the chat. I also what to know exactly what the hell that mask does.

Seconded. I've got a way to work him into the battle, but it relies on his mask working a certain way.

Guys. Since the mask wasn't explained in the canon, you can make it do whatever the hell you want. And Word Of God doesn't apply here, because Mr. A's Word Of God is higher. (As I mentioned, my Word Of God treated the Regulator as undefeatable, AND he was supposed to take on Cthulhu on a regular basis. As you can see, no one asked me.)

Valid point. (In case anyone wants to know, the mask was intended as a power amplifier.)

Aaaaaaah. From Sicon's fic, I had the feeling that it was an HUD or something. (I still wanna use it as that, if only because I've been thinking up ideas on how it can channel the words of the Great Old Ones.)

I made that visor in story. At the beginning. That wasn't the mask. It was basically intended to counter Medusa's nasty habit of turning people to stone.

Oooooooohhhhh. Well, okay then!

In other news, there's been a movement to pool our Cthulhu and Metaguard info into a Google Document for easy reference and editing. It's not quite up yet, but the topic has already been posted to let everyone know that it'll be here soon, among other things.

GOOD NEWS I wrote the story in one night, 3-4 pages long.

It is epic, sad and awesome. If it wins, listen the last half of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QnLuA2MiEs during the climax.

I have something to say about the situation.

Everyone has been panicking, running around and trying to recruit every character. I don't understand you, guys.
This is our job.
We are the tropers, we are the Metaguards, we are the players and the storytellers. Making the story that stops Cthulhu is up to us, and there's no way you can delegate it to others.
And I hate to say it, but it won't be us who will be taking the blow. It will be the guardians, the ones who we created ourselves. Now stop relying on others, and get your part of the job right.

I'm done.

I already wrote my fic and sent it in tonight. I did as much as I could but I won't spoil how it goes until the winning fic is announced.

Let's do this.
