Belfy comics index update

Wow. I just checked the submissions inbox for the comics index, and it was relatively large. I added about seven new comics, including "Freighter Tails", the remake of the long lost "Haul Trek" comic. Glad to see it back!

Give my regards to the guys at the morturary Mr Malkar...

..Did you not consider that insulting an indvidual with superhuman strength, speed and reflexes, a daily hemoglobin requirement and a twitchy temper - might be - oh I don't know, A trifle unwise?

Well at least there won't be much blood to clean up.

Old Friend
Its been a while, m'dear. I still have the Lynx Gang jacket. =)

If you sucked out all the blood and the like, I'm sure that Issaries Inc would send someone very big and very mean to find out what happened to one of their writers. That would be bad. Greg Stafford lives very close to Revar-vania.

And besides, if you did that, there wouldn't be a Revar NPC in "Sartar Rising!" (bwahaha)

Re: Old Friend
...Revarvania?

(Ponders the concept of an entire country full of Revars)

Okay. Scared now.

As for ancient... I had to sit down and calculate the time measurements for my novel...

As the Etani measure things, Revar is 24, and Jem is 26 (its set several years after the Watts timeframe - and technically in a different universe - but never mind).

Hence in the novel they are often refered to as 'young', but as one Etani solar orbit takes approximately eight Terran ones, Revar is 190 years old and Jem 206...

When you consider different solar orbits and things of that nature, it is suprising to see how easily humans can consider some species (fantasy) long-lived, but that species does not regard it any longer than a normal life span.

(Etani average life expectancy outside of conflict is 120 G'lans (Etani Years). The Draca (That's Vampire bats) tend to beat the upper life expectancy (150) by another 20 so Revar could theoretically live for almost fourteen hundred years.

(Mind boggles at the concept of a person living one and a half millenia)

Of course with the war and all, there aren't many Etani reaching the high side of 80 Glans.

Re: Old Friend
I don't know about a _country_ full of Derysi. Watts' story "The Cattle King" does describe a town taken over by Derysi, though.

Boo.

Re: Old Friend
Hmmm.

Yes, I ran that as a WharfHampster adventure back in, um, '93 I think.

I seem to recall that's where the 'decisions decisions' picture came from.
Of course, I'm considering writing it up for Hero Wars. I've got M. Martin's
permission to use the derysi in my work.

Yesss... my work. (heh heh heh) But hey, if you want, check out
www.herowars.com and have a look around. I helped with the last three
books.

Being pait to write gaming stuff. It doesn't get much better this side of a
milkshake, an attractive bat and a hot tub.

Someone set us up the Bat!

Re:
Thats why the ;) which surmounted the entire comment...

...I did think it might be a little subtle but...
I thought the entire tone of the comment was cheeky enough that one might consider it to be not serious...

...incidently, I actually approve of his choice of music in preference to yours :P

I was just observing that he was *asking* for the tomato sauce - as opposed to stating that he had been insulting :P (which he hadn't been - but people can be weird about music)

It's guy humor. ie. One guy makes a remark to another that his actions in regards to a specific lady (usually a significant other - but not always) have made him, 'dead meat'.
Smart-rear comments are then the order of the day. :P

However, if anyone actually thought I was yelling at the dead man walking - my apologies. I was just rubbing it in :P

I'm not quite used to LiveJournal yet, so I didn't notice the smiley icon until after I'd posted, I'm afraid.
As for music, you just haven't caught me while my MP3 player was on Mars, Bringer of War.

Hunting music
You want real Derysi hunting music, find the album "Black Aria" from Glen Danzig, and listen to the track "Overature of the Rebel Angels." That album is completely unlike his other works. Who knew a hardcore heavy metallist could compose his own classical -- if dark -- instrumentals? Anyhow, I've had that damned song stuck in my head for days now.

Re: Hunting music
ahhh...

You want to know something really odd...?

That very first time I read the Belfry Archive through... (Yes, I read the entire thing in chrono order - starting with Cattle and ending with Role) in four hours straight, I was sitting alone in a computing lab with the Phantom Menence Soundtrack playing on the system...

...Absolute silence (the air conditioning was motion controlled - and the most I moved was my hand to scroll or move to the next page...

By twenty minutes into the stories, I wouldn't have noticed anything short of an earthquake - I didn't even hear the music, or see the screen...

But, I can't write FCP without the soundtrack on... and every time I hear it it doesn't mean Stawars to me anymore...

I spent the next 24 hours in a sleepless half-in half out... Totally helpless to stem the flow of imagery. FCP was basically started from that night although I fought writing it for a month. Quite frankly, the intensity of the images and the waking dreams scared me very badly.

I wrote a lot of nutty posts and emails that month, including one to Mr Watts which I deeply regret (as I was quite possibly partially insane at the time - and it showed). I basically told him that he'd gotten his stories wrong and I was going to write the proper versions whether he liked it or not...

Arrogant as well as nutty... no wonder he put me on his ignore list... once I began writing and regained my equamity I deeply regreted it and tried to write a second more coherent explaination but he never even looked at it.

You can't exactly blame him. One of these days he's probably going to ask me to stop... in which case L'srai is either going to have to let me be or change his mind...

It is a great pity. I would have really liked to discuss the FCP with him... more than that I would have liked his permission... despite what L'srai says...

Re: Hunting music
Hunting Music, yes.

I must remember to thank Zjonni for introducting me to that -- or was it you, m'dear? Of course, I also prefer the proper operatic version of "Mountain King" which is more like a Templar Mosh Pit -- but I'm happy with that. Malkari are heavy shock troops,afterall. ' Marche Slav' is my current theme. Good for slogging across the steppes and taiga of the homeland, hauling artillery by hand.

Hmmm. I seem to recall a piece that was perfect for flying over forests at night but I can't recall it just at the moment. It will come to me though, in time. Perhaps its... hmmm... Possibly from Pictures at an Exhibition somewhere. But I think it might be Danse Macabre.

Oh, and your cousin says hi. She's been busy with some research and experimentation, apparently.
