Commenting Challenges
« on: March 20, 2013, 01:50:31 PM »
Alright, here's the deal: 

Authors love comments on their work, and we're going to deliver.  The challenge is to pick a freetext from the following list, and reply to this thread with the one you have chosen.

http://strolen.com/freetext

Your mission is to comment on EVERY SINGLE submission that has this freetext.  Voting is optional.  Leaving an idea on the sub also counts, but upvoting comments/ideas does not.

Additional Info:
  • The freetext you choose must have at least 5 submissions that it applies to (was going to go higher, but some submissions are really long).
  • If you have already commented on a submission with that freetext, you are free to skip it if you choose.
  • Also, once you've completed the challenge, please respond back to your original post on this thread.  We're handing out kudos and imaginary cookies (and possibly Internet Points, while supply lasts).

UPDATE:
Besides the good feeling you will attain by completing this challenge, I now offer the following prize:  I will comment (and vote) on three submissions of choice for anyone who completes this challenge.  They don't have to be your own.  Please PM me your choices, and I will make sure they go to the top of my queue. :)



Pledges:
Murometz -- Spear
Dossta -- 30
MysticMoon -- Swamp


Completed:
valadaar -- Mercenary
Moonlake -- 5in1 and Decathros

Challenge accepted. I choose "Spear"
Authentic Strolenite™©®

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Awesome.  If so, you're going to get a truckload of Internet Points for being the first person to complete it :)  Please remember to update your original post when you've confirmed it.  (Oh, and if you have a sub that you would like me to comment on, I'll throw that into the mix as well).

I will take "5 in 1"- not just the quest subs but the associated subs as well. I will be taking my time with this, though.
I will now also take "Decathros" but really this is a very minor freetext with 4 subs only (the majority is on a forum thread, this is the setting/map challenge started by SE, I think it's called sth like the Land of 10 Authors or sth) but I'm just doing this cos Axle's sub got me interested in the setting so I don't expect to get 3 votes on my subs just for doing it but just wanted to list it here cos it belongs.

Done with this challenge! I realised I used ambiguous wording when I responded to this challenge (associated subs could be interpreted as the 5 subs incorporated or any subs mentioned/linked to it somehow) so I actually dipped into the linkbacks etc. but then some of them are just too big and I grow tired of reading over them so I'm declaring this to be over :P

Dossta has gone MIA b/c he's writing a novel (last I heard) but as de facto leader of the Weaver Guild made by circumstance, I will step in for him in the interim and maybe get Longspeak into this as well given that he's the other Weaver active on the Citadel that should have some time to spare for this so that we could share the workload b/w the 2 of us, hopefully.

Update:

Serves me right. I picked "spear" initially because there weren't that many of them :P

Having started searching through spears however, I have discovered that they are...Legion.

So now, while commenting on freetext spears, i'm also trying to attach "spear" freetexts to the spears that don't have them.

Got to a bunch tonight, will proceed with more tomorrow.  :thumbup:
