    I know, right? SODWA sounds ludicrously epically amazing <3 i haven't been able to stop squeeing *cough* in a most manly and like-a-sir way *cough* since this morning, when i saw the post. I dunno what i could submit and - if it weren't for the bloody thesis i gotta write, i'd probably have more time to develop better creations - but, by gum!, imma try! As should everyone on here.

    Now i’m just jealous i didn’t develop that idea sooner (talk about “if only i’d studied computer science instead :/”) but chose to create a card game based on characters appearing in my stories and illustrated via, ofc, HM (and it’s still work-in-progress). The way i read the SODWA advertisement, it should be a bit like Champions Online in terms of sheer power of customisation (except a few orders of magnitude more intense) and with battles played out a bit like in Nadirim (i would imagine). And since those are two of my most beloved games… no wonder i’m mindblown here :D

    So yeah, just my squeeing 2 cents ;) Ah, uni work, Y U NO let me create? :<

    Spoken like a true martyr of… err… wisdom? *cough* like Unis could give you that *cough*.

    Let’s not forget that
    “To err is human, to arrrgh is pirate” :D

    Also, seeing the 2 quote lines in my signature clumped up together kinda annoys me. And it won’t let me do anything about that – how’d you manage it?

    It is just the simple “br” code. I don’t remember if I used “[” or “<” tags, but you’ll see it when trying.

    I really hope you all decide to participate. And Ximero (really, everyone), please don’t let lack of education stand in your way. I’ve gone to school for film, music, and a brief stint for computers, and never has it worked out. The one thing I’ve always had was my videogame addiction and a need to pursue creative endeavors (and a few lucky breaks… and a lack of student loan payments…). I’ve been working on the SODWA idea for around 7 years now, and I don’t plan to let my lack of a college degree hold me back. If there’s something you like/want to do, then do it! If you’re ignorant in 1 or more required areas, that’s what consultants are for! And now I feel like I’m part of an inspirational 80’s film…

    At least for me the problem isn’t the lack of education, but the fact that I’m doing my final year at the University and I’ve got a sh*tload of work to do with assignments! I’ve no time to be creative in funnier aspects of life…

    Haha, indeed, Dionne up here seems to truly share my pain ;) still, i did somehow manage to make 4 new characters last week, and i’ll add a few of my previous “best of”, so i’m almost good to go here :] And, Woody, many thanks for the encouragement (*hands him a complimentary 1980s ‘tache*) – i can relate to you in that video games have definitely been a staple of my life, too, for years now, and so has writing. Except writing what you want, or rather what you keep daydreaming about, is one thing, and being ‘academically guided’ towards writing some less-exciting (to put it nicely) material is quite another ;)

    That said, speaking of consultants – Woody, if you ever find yourself in need of background write-ups for SODWA or beyond, or hey, even someone with a bit of (and growing) experience in making (pen-and-paper) tile-based battlecard games, you let me know and i’ll be glad to lend a hand ^^ (just PM me about it, the e-mail should be visible on my profile, i guess?)

    Excelsior!

    I’ve actually had the idea of a card-based version of SODWA in the back of my mind for a while, now. We’ll see how this production goes, and once we get the community site up and running it might be something I talk with fans about. If we decide to go that route, I’ll certainly be looking for fans/designers to help put together a fun card-based experience.

    Awesome! I’ll be looking forward to that :) (At least meanwhile i get to hone my skills and create a larger ‘portfolio’ of my cards to impress you when the time comes :D)
