  BoogaVerse Project: Concepts and Progression
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-25-2018, 03:42 PM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Magic Ascension Arc - Replies (13)

The intended purpose of this topic is the assurance of consistency in BoogaVerse.

Once again, as stated in the Guide, BoogaVerse is an OPEN RP, but has a heavy reliance on lore. Any questions, ideas, or suggestions for the section in any way is welcome; or, this can be used as a way for approval for your thread is also a much welcome addition. 

BoogaVerse was introduced in 2016 as a way to implement the concept of Openness in terms of Roleplaying, lingering over from a previous site; however, I disagree with the concept entirely, and instead, opted for a way to bring a consistency where everything is interconnected, but at the same time, have their own separate stories. The process of creating and working on this has been brutal, but with the help of LoopyPanda and Z, BoogaVerse soon became successful of capturing the intended purpose I was aiming. Now, with your players, I wanted to push for further improvements on the section; furthermore, steer people to become better at creating stories, character dynamics, scenes, summary and sufficient in grammar!

Quick Tidbits

Known Prefixes for Planet Booga

  • Empire State
  • Paradice
  • Desolate Lands
  • Shina Ania
  • Constringitur [North and South use the same prefix)
  • Island 
  • Ocean
You are not required to read every single thread in BoogaVerse, outside the BoogaVerse Guide 3.0 and the Character Box. However, before joining the thread, you’re encourage to ask important questions of the thread (some threads have a more specific setting with rules, and some are more opened in terms of purpose). 

If you had RP in BoogaVerse (even before it conception) and your thread had been deleted/moved, you can still recreate an brand new thread with information relevant to the updated rules. Of course, there is a 10 day wait of the restoration of those threads upon request. After that, you simply have to make a brand new one. 

BoogaVerse Guide Updates will be smaller for now on, mostly for updated things on the lore in the timeline; make sure when creating your thread, it consistent that, regardless of update, you won't have any need to change it.

Hey all! I'm back with a short story one-shot. This is part of a 1000-word writing exercise, so don't expect a series out of this (I actually nearly reached 3,000 words!)
I took two prompts that were generated and mashed them into one: "Your character gets married" + "your character fights kaijus for a living". Hope you enjoy it all the same knowing I slightly spoiled it.

Basically, with this approach, I took a bit of artistic liberty with it and didn't really go along with realism for this one. I kind of messed with the laws of physics/gravity but in the end I wanted to achieve a comical fantasy type of thing. I'll probably update this thread with cover art of some sort eventually.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

  The Endless Desert
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-15-2018, 02:49 AM - Forum: BoogaVerse: Magic Ascension Arc - No Replies

The Endless Desert

The Endless Desert, located in the middle of Desolate Lands, is the largest desert in the continent. Stretching over 1600 km² wide, it is a barren area of landscape, with little precipitation, living conditions hostile for most plant and animal life, and endless distance of sand. As any permanent human settlement is not possible, there are concentration of monsters and mutants striving in certain parts within the area; making the desert a no-safe zone for travelers without an escort.

Attempting to cross the desert without an escort is trying to find a needle in a haystack: it is a moot point. The temperature rise and drops dramatically, depending on the season: on a hot day, it easily rise over the hundreds; on a cold day, it drops below zero. One should not foolishly attempt to cross the desert without some form of preparations. Any travelers with no knowledge of magic falls under a mysterious illusion: which prevents them from leaving the desert. It is a spell to stop travelers from finding the castle where the Ancient Dragon Guardian rests.

Referred as the Endless Illusion, there are multiple sinkholes spread around the desert. If one were to fall under the sinkhole, they will be transported to a random location in the desert, completely throwing off their tracks.

Notable Areas of Interest
The Neusch Castle was the ancient home to the Dragon Guardian, Dragore, for its deeds of protecting the world during the Crisis Era. However, after the Great Wars, Dragore abandoned its duties of protecting the land in disgust of how humans acted during the event. Centuries passed, the castle is under a protective barrier to prevent any outsiders from entering its domain—assuming the travelers managed to break the Endless Illusion.

The Cactus Spring Water is a singular, large pond is located on the edge of the desert. Based on appearances, the pond is sparkling blue; a waterfall that constantly runs and lastly, delicious fruits next to delicate trees for one’s hunger. However, in reality, the pond is actually radioactive liquids that build up over the years from the excessive nuclear waste eons ago.

A tribe of Cactus Monsters surrounds the pond, but to the eyes of the travelers, they look like ordinary cactus. In truth, they are a predator group; they would stalk travelers that are close to dying of thirst or hunger and sought their flesh once they succumbed to them.

  Stephen Hawking dies aged 76
Posted by: ShineCero - 03-14-2018, 06:03 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (1)

Quote:World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.

The British scientist was famed for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.

At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

Obituary: Stephen Hawking
A life in pictures
Reaction to his death - latest updates
The illness left him in a wheelchair and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser.

In a statement his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

"He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years."

They praised his "courage and persistence" and said his "brilliance and humour" inspired people across the world.

"He once said, 'It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

A book of condolence has been opened at Gonville and Caius College in Cambridge, where Prof Hawking was a fellow.

  Spring Anime 2018 Discussion

Smell that? No, it's not the coming of Spring, but the coming of fresh new animated shows coming around the corner, starting April 1st, 2018.

The purpose of the thread is to place all discussions about the new animes in one thread. You can talk about the upcoming animes, episodes, quality of the show, etc,. This is to avoid creating multitude of threads with no discussions and left for dead after a long while. If a anime in season becomes a popular topic in the thread, you have permission to spawn it into a their own.

Remember, you will be expose to spoilers as April 1st rolls around. So be caution of the thread if you haven't watch the episode yet. 

Any discuss about the upcoming animes can be discussed here. If the anime gets a lot of attention, it can become it's own thread, but for now, they can be discussed here. Certain animes that are popular, such as Boku no Hero Acamdeia, have their own threads.

  What Defines an Unnecessary Sequel?
Posted by: Grey Star - 03-12-2018, 02:44 PM - Forum: Metroham Avenue - Replies (2)

[Image: The-Godfather-Trilogy.jpg]
The Godfather Trilogy, one of the most famous cases of forced sequels ever

Unnecessary sequel: A sequel (most often to a movie) that somehow insults or defames the original due to quality (or sometime retcons), or simply adds onto a completed story in a way that is simply not needed.

So, what exactly are the parameters for an unnecessary sequel? So far I’ve found a few different types.

1. It’s a rehash of the original, or simply a bad story. Ghostbusters II is my preferred of the two movies, but the cast is ashamed of it basically being the same plot as before. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is considered a rehash of the original in terms of basic plot, but is still well liked due to the addition of interesting villains and action sequences that set it apart.
2. The sequel adds onto a completed story, and doesn’t lead to some sort of revelation or such. This is especially prevalent with completed franchises that had a “very freaking definitely the end” installment, only to get another sequel a few years later that serves little point other than “another adventure starring the hero, the comedic relief, and lacking the lancer and dark horse!” A good example of this is once again Pirates, with On Stranger Tides adding nothing to Jack’s difficulties with paying the debt of the Black Pearl / Will Smith’s character development, and aside from strong action sequences and magic, has rather lacking dialogue between anyone that isn’t Jack, Gibbs, and Barbossa. On the other hand, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is set after the very final installment, and is simply interesting and well written enough to justify its own existence, and not all sequels of this kind are bad.
3. The studio mandated a sequel. The Godfather Trilogy is infamous with the second film being made because the film maker was desperate for money, and the third just to kill off the character.
4. The sequel makes a major retcon / makes the ending of the previous movie null. A good example is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A lot of people liked the movie. Doesn't change the fact it made all the work that Luke did in the original trilogy literally pointless as the new First Order is even bigger, better, and ten times as vaguely evil as the Empire was, and is pretty set on making life even worse than under the Empire. Other cases are where sequels undo a character's death so they can show up again with little to no thought or consequences, thus making everything in the previous installment about the death just null. Or even worse are sequels that introduce franchise changing retcons that either make the previous installment flat out pointless or simply impossible in the new way the universe works.

So are some of these way too nit picky or specific to form a definite definition of what an unnecessary sequel is? Or is the definition required to be specific in what it does?

And lastly the original mario film, which is actually amazing and captures the essence of the main game titles (the original four, New Series, etc) perfectly

https://youtu.be/xWUHkOyhR-M

In my opinion there's no way you could improve on the film above. It's simply Mario with a different Luigi turned into well, a comedy film intended for kids but it's also enjoyable for adults. Not to mention Illumination is well, Illumination.
