  Character Study: Mary Sue
Posted by: ShineCero - 10-12-2017, 01:11 AM - Forum: Art 101 - Replies (7)

Seen this term being thrown around a bunch of time, so I thought to have a discussion on the term. It seems that the term, Mary Sue, lost its original meaning and now used as an insult to characters they do not like and/or wrongly accused someone of being a mary sue. 

So what is exactly is a Mary Sue? What criteria does a character have to go through to be considered one? Discuss. (will update the OP with more thorough content).

Are all mary sues inherently negative?

What makes a character not a mary sue?

Are all main characters considered mary sue?

The purpose of this is to create a definition of mary sue that is consistent and able to actually define a character in the story. It would also help us think more about our characters when we create stories, whether for a fanfiction or an entire original story.

  Destiny's Fall
Posted by: Grey Star - 10-06-2017, 12:34 PM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Solarian Arc - No Replies

A moderately sized village in Paradise, located on a coast north of the Brother / Sisterhoods of Black / White Magic, almost exclusively populated by humanoids that look almost identical to humans, but are actually aliens who rely on a seperate, genetic, system of magic to fuel their lives. Having arrived ages ago, some faintly remember the original exploration landing from over 600 ages ago. Sometimes they trade with other members of Paradise, but prefer to keep on their own. Occasionally members return with human brides, but few others due to biological incapability.

The village mostly relies on fish caught from the sea, and alien plants for vegetables, lumber, and strange crystalline weapons.

Places of Interest
  • Picture Perfect Beach - A well maintained beach with several sailing boats that fish the nearby waters, forming a mini port.
  • Weapon Shop - There's a weapon shop that primarily sells a limited stock of exotic weaponry, including crystal magic swords that can deflect energy blasts and amplify magic that runs through them, crystaline energy guns that can be converted (with seperate purchase) into laser weapons that utilize most commerical power sources for non Withereds, and extremely rare anti magic bullets offically named "mana burn bullets", which explode violently when they hit most forms of stored energy and mana.
  • Trading Post - Raw goods are exchanged here in exchange for currency, or vice versa. Some refined goods are also aviable, along with raw energy storing crystals that compose the majority of the weapons.
  • Grey Star's Parish - A place of worship is here, an open and sun lit building that watches the cosmos and facilitates the local religion. Named after one of the three ruling gods of the Withered's ancestors. The building is treated with much reverance, and any disrespect towards it will not be tolerated.
  • Extragalatic Transmitter - There's a building with tight security that contains some sort of antenna, and a chamber inside that allows weak projection of the mind of the Withered inside to journey back to their original planet, but consumes a vast amount of energy to amplify the broadcast that far. It's alleged that a magic used could use it to temporarily super charge their abilities, but only the closest friends of the village are allowed inside.

Lets talk about this amazing game. From the art to the music, this game hits all the right buttons for me. i grew up watching all these old cartoons and being able to play a game that stays true to the source material so well that it feels like i'm playing a cartoon feels amazing. Looking up the process on how they did the drawings is great.

  Quantum immortality, mass deaths, and the Mandela effect?
Posted by: Nick - 10-04-2017, 02:57 PM - Forum: Academy of Boogaloo - No Replies

Quantum immortality, mass deaths, and the Mandela effect?

Quantum immortality suggests that if you were to check the spin of an electron on a hydrogen atom once every second and you die if its spin changes direction, then survive for an extended period of time, then the chances of you surviving would be so minuscule that it would be acceptable to assume that you cannot die, or alternatively, your consciousness cannot remain in a universe where you have died and so your consciousness will simply transfer to another 'string' or universe of reality.

The Mandela effect (collective false memory) is basically when a popular idea is considered a fact but is actually wrong. Its called this because people tend to think that Nelson Mandela was killed in prison when had actually been released and gone to live his life. Some theories suggest that it may be an effect of alternate realities and people moving between them, taking some memories with them that don't transfer over to the other reality from the one they came from.

How do these connect via mass death?
There may be more than one case in which our consciousness switches realities, for instance, when someone you know, or maybe were destined to know, dies, then maybe the universe just spits you into a new story leaving yourself to gaslight away the details from the previous reality. So what happens when you multiply these things by like 20 times?

I was inspired to write this partly because of the recent shooting in Las Vegas where a lot of people were killed (about 60 people at this time) and tons more were injured. I don't know why, but a lot of things seem to be changing and my memories seem to be considerably far from my recent experiences, does that mean anything at all? Obviously not, that would be just silly to assume that using myself as evidence is worth a dang thing, so don't take any of this theory as truth or backed up.

So if the world changes an extreme amount for no explicable reason, there is a theoretical possibility that consciousness means quantum immortality, and for some reason, many of us change realities at a time... maybe... and that makes for a translation to an extremely odd world from how we remember it.

The thing is, it's much more likely that  as I grow up the world changes a lot really fast, and so I may just be attempting to explain a phenomena that is just reality itself, and when terrible things like mass shootings happen the world looks different for a while, that's something we've always known, and this is just a childish overcomplex explanation of why the world changes when we all get depressed from hundreds of people being shot.

Most of these titles are available on Netflix (if not, you can always try Youtube reposts!). TV shows with a spooky feel to it are also included. This list includes fantasy and horror movies alike. Hopefully there's something for everyone to watch! (The ones in Purple are my personal favorites!)

  The Black Cromwell Castle
Posted by: ShineCero - 10-02-2017, 05:53 PM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Solarian Arc - No Replies

[Image: DFpozj4.jpg]

The Black Cromwell Castle is located at the dark corners of Paradice, surrounded by a black forest, which has woods so dense that the sun couldn't penetrate the thick pine trees. Wild Animals such as wolves, bats, and bears are common around the thick forest. There had been reports that strange monsters may inhabitant in certain parts of the forest. The Castle had been around for thousands of years, first built in Age 3456 by a powerful Warlock who was banished from Brotherhood and Sisterhood Society for illegal experimentation upon human life.

The Warlock had a hatred towards the Magic Societies, bowing that he would create a Mage so powerful that it would bring damnation to Paradice and overthrew, of what he thought, the rigged system of the Magic School. He fears that the institution had a monopoly of Magic and stray away from Merlin’s teachings. However, the Warlock would perform horrific experiments on live subjects, including humans, animals, monsters and even Deimos with no regard for their life.

According to urban legends, during a stormy night, the Warlock found a breakthrough and combine the elements of a human and a monster, creating a perfect creature that able to have unlimited around of magical power. However, it proves to be too unstable for the Warlock to control and the creature turn against its own creator. It was said that the creature never left the castle and chose to remain dormant. There had been much scouting to the Castle by powerful mages but all of them found no evidence that the creature even existed aside that the Warlock did live there and performed unethical experiments.

However, the rumors continue to soar. The idea of ghosts haunts the castle because of their unjust death by the lands of the warlock, vowing to scare away any mages that dare enter the domain. The rumors that if you spent a night there, you will be trapped in the castle forever and never able to leave. The rumors that the Warlock is still alive, but just biding his time to strike when the moment fits the best for him.

Nowadays, the Black Cromwell Castle became an attraction for mages who seek to prove their bravery to their friends and family. Some might be interested to uncover the truth behind the castle and its supposed history. Regardless, the mystery behind the castle still exists to this day.

Notable Areas of Interests

The Black Forest: The thick and dense forest that derived the area of sunlight, become an eternal darkness. It contains wild animals such as wolves, bats, and bears. It was said that there are monsters that lurk around these parts.

The Warlock’s Room: The supposed room where the Warlock work, study and experimented upon innocence life. It is filled with books that were scattered everywhere and paperwork.  There is a single bed where he slept—and unlike the rest of the room, it is nearly clean.

The Dark Room: The basement of the castle, where the Warlock kept all the experiments in tubes with green water. None of the creatures are currently alive.

The Garden of Eve: The garden has strange plants growing, revealing odd black vegetation. It was said that eating them would a mage a strange, new power or immediate death. However, these are just rumors so far.

  The Fairy Forest
Posted by: ShineCero - 10-02-2017, 05:44 PM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Solarian Arc - Replies (15)

The Fairy Forest

The Fairy Forest is located on the eastern side of Paradice, near the Soothing River, stretching about 42,340 acres across on each end. The Fairy Forest has an abundance of wildlife, fruits, vegetation and peaceful monsters. 

Deep within the forest, there exist a village of Fairies. Fairies are small beings that resemble humans that have magical powers. The first record history of fairies first emerges during Age 2100, when a Grandmaster stumbled upon the village and witness a village of an all-female species. They were small, had wings and each direction they flew, they would leave trails of sparkling materials behind. The Grandmaster noted that these species have magical powers that equal to that of a Grandmaster and able to grant “wishes”. However, they would refuse to grant any unethical wish—and refuses the wishes in general if one’s heart has been tainted with darkness. He noted that their society seems to be similar to that of a society of a human, but have some traits of that of a monster society. He would later note that it’s seemingly impossible to walk in the Fairy Forest and find their village as they are wary of travelers. 

If one decides to go search for the fairies, there is another legend. Another mage, a survivor of the encounter, stated that she and her group of friends journey inside the forest in hopes of finding the Fairy Village. Instead, as their hearts were filled with negative thoughts, got caught up in a thick and dense fog. It blocked their view and decreased their magic tremendously. Then, they would encounter a lake that was pitch red like blood, until they see an erratic woman in the middle. The survivor never described what had happened after that, but claimed that her friends were never seen again and warn that one needs to be safe when traveling in the forest.

Notable Areas of Interest

The Fairy Village: The village of fairies that lies deep within the forest. They are an all-female species that grants the wishes of those who encountered them. Furthermore, some fairies like to travel outside of the village and play innocent pranks on the traveler or something lure them if they deem them worthy enough. There is a possibility of recruiting fairies among your guilds; however, it hasn’t been done for thousands of years.
  • The Festival Palace: The Queen of the Fairies lies in the Palace, protected by elite guards. She welcomes any travelers with a kind heart and helps them whatever they need. She’s very overprotective of her people.
  • The Fairy Shop: You can gain the best of wands that help you control your magic a lot better. Some of them are pretty expensive though.
  • The Healing Station: There are fairies that heal travelers after their long journey in the forest.
The Blood Lake of the Enchanted Lady: Rumors has it that if you have a wicked heart, you will never encounter the Fairy Village but instead a blood lake where the Enchanted Lady appears. It’s possible that she lures her victims to her place if she finds any interest in them. What happens after that has never been recorded.

  Las Vegas Strip Massacre - At least 58 dead, 515 injured
Posted by: ShineCero - 10-02-2017, 07:51 AM - Forum: The Boogaloo Donut - Replies (3)

Quote:At least 58 people were killed and 515 were injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on a music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. It was the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

The "nonstop gunfire," according to one witness, sent more than 22,000 country music fans scrambling for their lives. Police say the lone suspect had at least 10 rifles when he was found dead in a Mandalay Bay hotel room.

Terrified bystanders ducked, ran, then sprang into action -- frantically caring for the wounded. As ambulances rushed to the scene, concert-goers made makeshift stretchers out of police barricades. They plugged wounds with their bare hands and used their clothing to try to stanch eachother's bleeding. At least one man described a stranger dying in his arms.

An off-duty Las Vegas police officer who was attending the concert was among the dead, police said.


In the wake of the shooting, the Las Vegas Police Department said authorities responded to a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, where police said the suspected gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, was dead. Police said they believe Paddock, of Mesquite, Nevada, killed himself prior to police entry.

The motive was unclear. A senior law enforcement official told ABC News that so far there are no ties to international terror.


Witness Brian Claypool said on "Good Morning America" today that after the first round of gunfire, he ran into a little room that he described as a production area.

"The hardest for me was, I saw six young women. They were maybe 20, 22. They were all crying on the ground. I was trying to be calm," Claypool said, appearing emotional.

"But I thought at the moment of the Orlando shooting, because we were in this room," he said of the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting that left 49 people dead. We didn’t know where the shooter was. We thought he was going to jump the fence and come in this room and shoot us all. ... I’m thinking, 'Am I going to die in this room?'"

"Then the shooting stopped," Claypool said, "And I peeked out the front of the door, I peek my head out, police officers scream, ‘Go! Go!’"

Claypool said he tried to bring comfort to the young women who were sheltering in the room with him.

"I said to myself, 'These girls aren’t going to die. I’m not going to die,” he said. “I need to get home to see my daughter. This is not happening.'"


Concertgoer Mike Cronk told ABC News that as Aldean was playing, it "kind of sounded like some fireworks going off. I think there was the first kind of volley, and then all of the sudden second volley. My buddy's like, 'I just got hit, you know.' He got hit three times. Then people started diving for the ground. And it just continued.

"It was pretty much chaotic," Cronk continued. "Lots of people got hit. ... It took a while to get him out. We had to get him over the fence and hiding under the stage for a while, you know, to be safe. And, finally, we had to move him because he had three chest wounds."

This is the deadliest shooting in modern America history. Jesus fuck.

Star Birthday Bash: Happy Birthday, Freak!

Golly! It's time to say happy birthday!




As the introduction of the Birthday Bash, we have our final Birthday Basher, the technical nerd, Freak! Your avatar, signature, user-title and the entirely of the forum is now dedicated to you for one week! 


Freak

To think that it was only yesterday, that you were the youngest moderator on a previous forum, now today, you have just turned 18. Times sure flies pretty damn fast. Let me tell you something and I want to take these words to your heart. You are definitely one of the smartest people I have ever met. You know your ways of computers and laptop; heck you practically built computers as if that was nothing more than a walk in the part. You have a talent that just waiting to be explored. You have a great future ahead of you. 

Freak

Not only that you’re talented, but you are also extremely helpful. You always jumped into any conversations when people any question related to computers—and even extends to different technology, and help them with their problems. You have a vibe that a person can talk to you with just about anything and always, always have a good time. Whatever I able to check on the long conversations (that’s not spam) of you talking about something, I felt like I was learning something new because you bring some interesting insight of how you felt about a certain topic. In short, you’re helpful, kind and always bring up interesting topics that make people think. I guess you can say that you’re a nerd maybe

[Image: giphy-downsized-large.gif]


Freak,

You’re fun to hang out with. In fact, I’m pretty sure that I can confirm this reasoning though Nick and Grey Star, who constantly praises you. Heck, ~ Z ~ and I managed to play Overwatch when it was on Free Weekend, that you are extremely fun to play with. Maybe one of these days, if you have the hang, you should definitely get Overwatch on the PS4 and we can play some mad meme games maybe

But anyway, what I’m trying to say, Freak, is that you’re the type who, while does have a competitive side, realized that when the game is simply chilling, you don’t take it seriously and want to solely have fun with friends while making the dumbest of jokes. Even during the Skype chats, you drop joke bombs that would leave me in tears! Freak, if you ever have doubt that you think a certain negative way about yourself, you can just bury it. You’re fun, awesome to talk to, intelligent and overall a good person with a big heart. Despite turning 18, you are definitely one of the most mature people in the group of friends. Rarely I ever have seen you down on yourself, because you have a strong heart. Because you set your sights on something big and honestly, you’re going to get that. Pimp 

Freak,

You are an extraordinary person, who has the knowledge and the skills to back it up. You are smart, level-headed and always there for your friends. So, today, I, personally wished you a happy birthday, and want you, to celebrate and have fun. Go out and bring some entertainment that makes you happy because you earned it. Remember, Freak, do not let anyone put you down. Don’t cloud your mind with any doubt because you have the talent, you have the skills, you have the confidence to become great and as long those things make you happy, nothing in the world should stop you. If you ever in despair, just know that all of us have your back and that you are never alone buddy Pimp

Once again, I wished you the very best birthday and hope you had an awesome day and an awesome week.



With all the Love and Care,
ShineCero and the Boogaloo Crews!


What this? There's something special under these spoilers!? Think
