New Chronicles 11/13



  • Wow! We finally have a chronicle again. This time, Mr. Somebody has brought us The Century Cycle: Book I. This chronicle is set many years after the reign of Alaric. A legendary hero is poised to make his return in a new form. You can read the chronicle (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/cgi-bin/ubb/newsdisplay.cgi?action=topics &number;=52&forum;=*Cythera+Chronicles&DaysPrune;=25&article;=000133&startpoint;=")here(/url).

    Since we no longer get many chronicles, and because of the demands placed on my time by grad school, the release day will no longer be strictly confined to Mondays. All chronicles will be released as quickly as I can get to them, but with at least a one week delay between each. As if it needs to be said, we need more chronicles. Send them in!

  • So I take it the Chron of the Month competition doesn't really work any more?

  • If we get multiple chronicles in a month, it most likely would happen. As it stands now, it'd probably be a "chronicle of the year" competition.

  • As previously mentioned, the chronicle of the month contest has been discontinued. The lack of chronicle submissions makes it no longer viable.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to say: "I rule." The end.

  • If Slayer is up for it, we might have enough (3! Its a miracle!) for a Chronicle of the Month competition this month. (and maybe every month there are three contestants)

    Kudos to our brave chron writers!

    Slayer, don't get too excited - you might have a heart attack. ;)

  • When I saw the queue, I was shocked! Stunned, even! I'm glad that the chronicles are having a resurgence in popularity. I'm hoping that things will keep up like this. Since it would appear that there are enough chronicles this month to make the contest viable, there will be a chronicle of the month.

  • Question: Are they actually good? Are you sure this is Cythera we're talking about?

  • I side with Big Joe. Of course, I would like some REAL competition.

    You can judge that for yourself when they're released.

  • There does appear to be a good chronicle in queue.
