Greetings all! I'm here (and so very, very thrilled (and just a teeny bit nerve-wracked)) to announce the opening of IW's first ever Open-World RP, Letters From Litterbug Junction.
Come join us in a post-apocalyptic United States on our quest to push back the Vile, and the vile PROSPER agents, who threaten our well-being and our humanity. Themes include, but are not limited to: Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror.
Litterbug Junction is designed for players interested in a traditional prose-driven RP with a main quest, but also for those looking to roam around in the story world and do as they will. Along with our Main Quest, we have several types of quests set up for group RPers AND for players who would just like to cruise around the world in Solo mode and ponder the meaning of life. And even cooler: the things you find and the stories you write may actually become canon within the RP world itself.
Yes, the world itself has the potential to be incredibly dynamic, with Solo players discovering PROSPER outposts that Group players can crush on their own mission. Inside the Mailbag, you'll find a running list of locations, encampments, and NPCs that other players have established in their Letters, along with various new technologies, natural events, storylines, and outright ambushes that I, as DM, will spring upon you at random.
Come find us in the Interactive Writing sub forum of roughly the same name, and see if it's something you'd be interested in! I look forward to seeing you there!
And remember: don't ever ask Nurse Ladybug about her name.
YAAAAASSS!!! So thrilled this is finally launching. I've been watching it develop in hidden little forums, peeking and saying "Omigosh, this looks amazing!" for a couple months now. (Maybe not quite that long? But excitement makes it feel like forever. )
So I'm certainly going to be participating whenever I can. I hope many others of you will take a stab at it. It sounds simply brilliant.
pelwrath: I’ve only had such a contract for a story once before. That doesn’t excuse my stupidity.

pelwrath: Did about 1200 words on Vampire #2 this morning with more for tonight. Wife and daughter watching Candyman.

pelwrath: My wife said with pouting eyes, “don’t you want to watch Candyman with me?” Horror not a genre of preference. Monster scary (Alien, etc.) fine. That said, movie isn’t that bad with an interesting twist at the end.

RAVENEYE: Oh, ugh, no! Saw that one waaaaay back. Never again. Not my genre either. Still, I've never said "Candyman" three times while looking in a mirror. No way! LOL

pelwrath: This one is brand new and answers questions from the first.

HDSimplicityy: i dont think Ive seen it either.

pelwrath: Researching the city of Edinburgh isn't hard, but trying to connect two disjoint locations in and near the city for my book 2 draft, ain't easy.

Caulder Melhaire: We've been joking about Candyman at work because the lead was excited to see it

Caulder Melhaire: "Okay, you guys go home and say candyman 3 times in the mirror and then come back and tell me what happens"
Sept 22, 2021 20:17:40 GMT -6
whaleworkforfood: What do you guys think happens if you say Candyman (or Bloody Mary or any other mirror-related apparitions) non-consecutively? Like if you say Candyman once tonight, then says Candyman again the next night. Do you still summon Candyman?

pelwrath: If you're saying with the knowledge of what could happen, then too bad for you. Also, the new movie provides an interesting definition of mirror.

Caulder Melhaire: I think it has to be consecutive or else my parrot-y butt has unknowingly summoned Mary Worth several hundred times by now LOL

Alatariel: What about with Beetlejuice? I think it must be within a certain time-period, like the same minute or something.
