  1. As a reminder of how the game is played...thanks @Valkyrie I’ll get this round started by beginning where we left off from round one shotgun wedding
  2. Continuing the game started by @Sasha Distan ...   Rain
  3. Continuing the game started by @Dark  Game 2 begins with: carousel
  4. The popular drinking game has come to GA! Its simple you say something you've never done, the next person tells if they have or not, and then they add their never have I ever I'll get started... Never have I ever been a member of the mile high club
  5. Congratulations to Chris191070 for winning Last Post Wins #53. In honor of this event, and Simplicity Day, we'll be having Pecan Pie served in a Paper Bag. Eat Your Jello while you wait for your Different Colored Eyes.
  6. Can you believe this game was started on May 29, 2006 (12 years ago! ) ? Going back to the beginning as we start a new round, I thought it would be kind of neat not only to have the original game instructions in the post, but to start game 3 from the original question, too. Here goes: @BoyNeedsTherapy said Ok, so I saw this game on another board and thought it sounded fun! So what happens is I start the topic by saying 'The person below me - ' and then making a statement about them. For example I could say: 'The person below me has black hair' Then the person that replies, would say something like 'No, I have brown hair.' And then they'd make their own statement like 'The person below me likes pickles' and so on. Got it??? So: The person below me has a dog.
  7. If you're a player or planning to play a D & D role-playing game then you should know about the character named Mordenkainen. Let me tell you that Mordenkainen is one of the most powerful characters of D&D role-playing games. An ultra-powerful wizard that attains lots of magical power in it. This book contains the conflicts of Mordenkainen with their character description and powers. So, if you're curious to know how blood war got namesake, types of Elf, and horrors of gift then you can find it here. The Dungeon Master's Guide is a wealth of inspiration and advice that will ignite your imagination and help you create adventure worlds your players will be happy to explore. In its pages you will find tips for building a world, tips for designing dungeons and great adventures, optional game rules, hundreds of magic items typical of D&D and many other tools to help you become an accomplished dungeon master. And when you're ready for even more adventure, expand your collection with the Fifth Edition of Player's Handbook and Monster Manual.
  8. Congratulations to the Green One, Zombie for finally posting when he needed to. He won LPW 48 by doing so. But how long will he keep it?
  9. Rules: 1. Look at the 5 letters given by the previous player. 2. Use those 5 letters to create a sentence. 3. Then pick 5 random letters and add them after your sentence. 4. The next player uses those new 5 letters to create a sentence and so on. 5. Be creative but KEEP IT CLEAN! Example: YOMAD You Owe Me A Dollar. New letters: TWAGR
  10. With the popularity of "Word Chain", I thought I'd see if this game will take off as well. The rules are basically identical to "Word Chain" except we use towns and cities instead of words. Rules (for clarification): 1. We start with a town/city 2. The next player takes the last letter of the town/city and uses it as the first letter of the next town/city 3. Play continues until no towns/cities are found that will match 4. Keep the English language -- towns/cities have a different names in their local language (such as Anvers and Antwerpen for Antwerp, and Venezia for Venice) 5. Towns/cities cannot be repeated twice (or more) in a row 6. Please provide the name of the country your answer is from For example: Town/city 1: New York (USA) Town/city 2: Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of the Congo) Town/city 3: Albertville (France) First game: Liverpool (UK)
  11. I'll take the ribs but not the coleslaw. The person below me prefers Canadian bacon over pepporoni.
  12. A New Game! Word Ladders. Word Ladders…This is actually an old time puzzle kind of thing. In a Word Ladder, the object is to start with an Original word (I'll use HATES, for example), and turn the Original word into a new "Target word." Each poster changes exactly ONE letter to turn HATES into its target (I'll use LOVER in this example). It might run like this: Parker posts: Turn HATES into LOVER. Grumbles1 posts: HAVES Fliedermaus posts: LAVES Smugly84 posts: LOVES Grumbles1 posts: LOVER. I win. New post - turn BLATHER into SERIOUS... …and so on. General Rules – Responses must keep the letter changed in place. Grumbles1 changed the T to V, but its relative place in the puzzle remained the same. Use English language, with preference for uncapitalized, un-hyphenated words. Avoid proper names, unless absolutely necessary; non-English words used as a last resort. Obviously, keep it clean. Posters should not post twice in a row. Poster who completes the ladder sets the next ladder. Have fun…and so on to the first Word Ladder challenge: Turn CANDY into HEART (okay, so I'm a shameless romantic. Sue me.)
  13. Have you been inwardly guessing which Halloween Contest entries were written by which author. With the voting for the contest over, it's time for the GA members to try and guess who wrote what! The "reveal" will occur on October 31st, so try and get your guesses in before then. The only prize for this game is bragging rights, if you guess more right then anyone else. Remember, only one story was allowed per author.

  14. Congratulations Comicfan on winning LPW #39.
  15. There's a new game running for the newsletter! Today we're going to get the ball rolling, and next week I'll announce the fun twist of the game. This will involve writing, so if you don't want to play, don't add the game information to your reply (feel free to talk/discuss otherwise). Don't worry, though, it's not a long or hard challenge. Take Two Game: Choose two nouns at random. Pull out a dictionary (if you own one!) or randomly search for nouns online. Take the first two you pick/see/get results for and add them to your post here. What are you going to do with them? Well... the answer for that comes with next week's newsletter. Game details: Game announcement 4/30/17 & 5/7/17. Game will run through 6/3/17 with newsletter feature on 6/4/17. Example: I want to play! This sounds like fun, and I can always use a creative nudge. (hint, hint authors!) Nouns: park & cereal
  16. An ingenious mapmaker has posted a map of Europe, featuring well known paintings as the graphic for each territory. Can you name the paintings belonging to the European countries? Maybe it's more a game for fellow European GA-members. But I know, at least the countries are no problem for @Drew Espinosa Original page, where you can make the picture larger. But be warned, on that page all the paintings are listed below.
  17. I have a fun game idea for GA readers, and, as an incentive to play, I'm going to give away a free copy of any one of my eBooks to one person. You can find a complete list on my Amazon author page. Winner does not have to have an Amazon account to win. The winner will be chosen via a drawing on random.org from the list of players who complete the scavenger hunt before the game ends on April 23rd at 11:59 PM, PDT. Winner will be announced April 24th. Rules: Find any of the following listen of items in a story written by any author here on GA. To prove your find, place a link to the page where the item appears beside the item on the list. You can quote my post and add it here or work off the Word form added as a downloadable file below, but anyone just copying instead of playing won't be entered into the contest. There are no single right answers, so the goal is to have fun racking your memory or searching for stories containing any one, or more, of these items! Word file: GA Stories Scavenger Hunt.docx GA Stories Scavenger Hunt April 13th-April 23rd 1. A character with a red shirt 2. The scent of vanilla 3. A peanut butter and (whatever else) sandwich 4. Fish 5. A character says “Holy crap” 6. Crackers 7. A character with a mustache 8. A silver car 9. A character smoking 10. Two men dancing 11. A planet with aliens 12. A dog barking 13. A baby crying 14. A love triangle 15. A character says “No means no” 16. A story description that mentions death 17. A leak 18. Stained-glass windows 19. A story that mentions souls 20. A story with 3 Beta Readers/Editors (any combo equal to 3) 21. A red-haired character 22. A limousine ride 23. Flying 24. An elf with pointed ears 25. A picnic
  18. First, AC has kindly given me permission to bring this game here and expand it. So, some basic rules: Choose a quote from a person, book, poem, film, etc and "text message" it. What counts as texting? Acronyms like OMG, netspeak like "B4" or simply removing vowels "people --> ppl" Others will then have to decipher what it is. Solve all of it, or a part of it. (leaving the rest for others to crack)* The person to solve all of it (or the last piece of the "puzzle") wins the round, and begins the next one. Keep the length of the quote/passage reasonable. I mean, don't text something like the entire Odyssey for us to solve As for an online guide, Netlingo has a large list to choose from. *What I mean is this, you can work with others to solve it, making it a team effort All right! With those pesky rules outta the way lets begin! "Sht ll th bl jys u wnt, f u cn ht m, bt rmmbr tht ts a sn t kll a mckngbrd."
  19. Has anyone played this game, because I just finished it and all I could say is WOW... WOWW. WOOOOOOOOWW. And WOOOOWWW. And of course, AMAZING! I've never played a game before that tackles the human condition so well, for it to translate into a game. I haven't been playing any game on ps3 lately for the past 2 years because I do have my career, and my graduate school to worry about on a daily basis. I choose to play games on my PC anyway, since I can bring it anywhere and anytime. Unless I come prepared lugging a luggage, and inside a 60 inch flatscreen tv with a playstation 3 that I could plug in the airport or in a coffee shop. One of my friends got an extra copy of The Last of Us Game, cause he was planning to give it to his brother as a birthday present (he realised that the game was not too PG-13 for his little bro), and decided to sell it to me when the disc box-set was lying around in his house last weekend when I came to visit him, and I got to play it for at least 15 minutes. Not really play it, since it was all cutscenes at first. But bloody hell, was I hooked. He said that he pre-ordered the game for months now. Knowing myself that I'm very particular in playing a game that resonates with my emotional tugging of strings, or mentally challenging my cranial hemispheres; this game did both exceptionally well. This story could be pretty much be based from an award winning novel for all I know (and I know it's not) because the storyline is amazingly well-put together and the narrative is fantastic. I nearly bawled at the first 15 minutes of storytelling that happened in the game's cinematic, as I sat on my friend's couch. I screamed at him and said, "I can't believe they did that! This is so unfair. How much do you want for this? I need to play this game now!" He said, "$50 au." as he turned off the PS3. He wanted to surprise me further and didn't want to curtail my longing to play the game. And because he knew that I might have slept at his house and sat on that couch for hours, and might have destroyed our plans for meeting our friends that night. So I basically spent the whole weekend playing this game. So for those who have played this, what are your insights? I really felt like I didn't play a PS3 game. It was more like I read an amazing book, that happened to be a 17 hour film prose. . . which became a game in its own right. And the ending was so emotionally jarring that until now, I still have some questions of my own morality. I'm not saying it's in a bad way, but for me, it's a good way.
  20. Plans for a GA forum RPG are currently in the works! It all started in this topic then movied to this one, if you want to catch up on the backstory. We have permission to do this in a subforum, but it won't be created until we have our list of players and our setting. That's where you good folks come in. Interested in having a go? Then put your vote in for where you'd like the game to be set. We would appreciate it a lot, though, if people only vote if they're thinking about playing - don't want to accidentally end up with what the wider forum thinks is cool outnumbering the players. Multiple choice, because what's the harm in voting for your second (or third, or...) fave? Current GMs: Myiege Persinette Current Players: Clumber Sasha Distan joann414 Daithi AnimalMorph Delores Esteban scotty94 Thorn Wilde JMH asamvav111 Celethiel nostalgiclikeyou If anyone's on there and doesn't want to be, or wants to be and isn't then let me know. I've been in a bit of a muddle today. Anyone who says they want to play will get their name added to that shiny, super-exclusive list. These are the rules Myiege and I have currently drafted, plus a sample Character Bio. The Character Bio is currently really vague and has no options for things like magic, since we don't know the setting yet. (It is also for a character nobody will ever want to play. ) We're looking for feedback on everything! EDITED TO ADD: Don't worry about filling out a character sheet at this point! Its purely there for you to go 'I like the way that looks/God, what are you thinking?' and generally give any opinion you might have on it. Rules: 1) What the GM says goes. If you have an issue with one or both of the GMs, please bring it to us directly, through PM. We are meant to be objective, but if you believe that for some reason we are not, don't hesitate to bring it to our attention. There are two of us for a reason! 2) If you feel you are being treated unfairly or think that someone else has broken one of the rules, please go directly to the GM through PM. We really don't need any vigilante justice people. 3) Godmodding. This is one of the big ones, guys. Godmodding (in case you aren't familiar with the term) is when you are essentially invincible. You make it so that no one can harm you and that you are super and ultra powerful. Another form of godmodding is using another character without the owner's express permission. Including killing them or making them fall in love with someone else or making them do ANYTHING without the owner's permission. Urban dictionary has a great definition if you are interested: http://www.urbandict...erm=god modding 4) Metagaming. Another big one. Please remember that you are playing a CHARACTER in a made up world and try to place yourself in your character's shoes and refrain from using information you, as a PLAYER, know and something that would be impossible for your character to know. A good example of this would be Sammy's character revealing some less than honorable intentions in an inner monologue and then Bobby's character calling them out on it. How, plausibly, would Bobby's character know any of what was going on in Sammy's character's head? Being suspicious of suspicious characters is one thing. Being all knowing is different and is pushing limits on godmodding as well, especially if you suddenly decide that you character can read minds. Also, 'bad feelings' should be able to be backed up with in-character interaction. Just a 'bad feeling' isn't enough. Please back up your feelings! 5) This seems like a no brainer, but please respect your fellow players. As a writing game, each of us has different strengths and weaknesses when it comes to our narratives. Also refrain from taking real world grudges (if any of y'all have any to begin with) into the game, or bringing RPG-related grudges OUT of the game. It's only a game and relationships should not be destroyed by it. This is supposed to be fun! GMs are not excluded from this as well. We will try to be as objective as possible. 6) Every player must submit a full character sheet (to follow) to GMs for approval. Please try to be realistic and creative. No one likes to play with Mary-Sues and character depth is important. 7) Please let other characters get a word in edgewise before posting again - for one thing, other characters might decide your character is an unbearable chatterbox. If things get too out of hand with this we may impose a posting limit 8) If for one reason or another you are going to be absent and you know this in advance, please let us know and make sure your character is not involved in any significant plots. If you are involved in a significant plot, please let us know far enough in advance that a temporary out can be found for your character. On a similar note, please don't abandon minor plots without finishing your part in them, even if it only effects a few players rather than the whole RP. Never finishing that in-character conversation about beer vs. cider is one thing; leaving a declaration of love hanging traps the other player in a situation where they're not sure what's happening with their character. 9) Players - with their consent - may be given plot hooks by the GMs. This can be anything from 'the Big Bad has secretly contacted you, what do you do?' to 'you are driven to fulfill your dream of becoming a baker'. You can request a plot hook/objective/sub goal at any time. 10) In-Character Actions do not equal Out-of-Character feelings. When a character is being a prick to yours, remember that the player doesn't feel any such thing about you - and if you genuinely think they do, bring your concerns to the GMs in a PM.

  22. So this is kind of an offshoot from the story by authors. The idea of a roleplaying game across the GA community was born somewhere and I personally think it's a great idea! So here we can talk about if this is something we really want to happen. I think there definitely need to be rules (like Persinette has mentioned in the other thread) and there really should be someone like a Game Master to push plots and stuff. Since we're all on a writing community, I have high hopes this won't turn into a mary-sue angst fest. So yea! Feel free to share your thoughts, I really hope we can get this off the ground! https://www.gayauthors.org/forums/topic/37277-a-story-by-authors/#entry427659 <-- link back to where the idea was born! Hope to hear from ya! MYI
