I was supposed to make a chron, came up with an idea, came up with characters. Hell, I even posted story lead-ins here. But alas, it didnt work. With a work schedule that was mainly days, I couldnt come up with anger or passion to add to the story at late night when I tried to write. It made for a failed creation and a skip over found in our current TS.
Yes, im a slacker, but im one step beyond, im dead lazy.

Nameless things, even Sauron knows them not. But I don't think I'd call any of them demons... the term just doesn't seem applicable on Arda. Besides, they probably aren't really that evil, just were misunderstood as children like poor poor Smeagol. :rolleyes:
Sounds like you had a really good time, Slayer. World travel is something I've always wanted to do, but for you it seems you have multiple reasons (good luck!). 🙂
I apologize for not doing any chronicles in the last ten days. I had some stuff come up, and big projects have a slightly higher priority than correcting spelling and grammar in pending chronicles. 😕
If you want to run a chronicle of the month, you can do it - though maybe we should make it bimonthly (december/january?). We have the chronicles, I just wasn't home on the 31st to get one out in time.

The end of my semester is near, and so are several deadlines for projects. Grad school being what it is, I currently don't have time to update the chronicles. Don't worry, though; I should be able to get the new one up on Friday.

Chronicles can be submitted at any time. The amount of time it takes for a chronicle to be released varies, and tends to depend on the number of chronicles already in the queue. If you submitted something now, it would probably be released pretty quickly.
This week, Pallas Athene brings us "1 Bloodstone / He Who Giveth." In this story, Comana has become a company that is exploiting its workers. It is quite a well written chronicle, and I encourage you to read it (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/cgi-bin/ubb/newsdisplay.cgi?action=topics &number;=52&forum;=*Cythera+Chronicles&DaysPrune;=25&article;=000135&startpoint;=")here(/url).
For the second week in a row we have a chronicle! Astounding! This week, Bellerophen brings us "The Powerfull(sic) Demon, Part 1". Well, it's not quite all Bellerophen's. I performed a substantial overhaul on the chronicle to get it into shape so it would at least be modestly acceptable. In this chapter, the hero Bellerophon(not to be confused with the author), having recently graduated from Pnyx, sets out to be a judge. On his way he encounters many hardships. You can read it (url="http://"http://www.ambrosiasw.com/cgi-bin/ubb/newsdisplay.cgi?action=topics&number;=52&forum;=*Cythera+Chronicles&DaysPrune;=25&article;=000134&startpoint;=")here(/url). In fact, I encourage you to. It's a short chronicle, and as an extra bonus, you can see the original form of the chronicle. It's interesting to see the remarkable transformation the chronicle made because of my efforts. Don't let my work be in vain!
Aw man. I think the only reason anybody wrote any chronicles was so they wouldn't feel guilty for seeing these weekly "no chronicle" posts. I'm sorry I haven't written one yet. I'll get around to it one of these days, and it will probably be related to the team story, since that's going slow enough I'll have plenty of time to make a good one.
This board seems to be dying.

Isn't there anything we can do, Dr. Slayer?

I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage (1791-1871) Inventor of the "Analytical Engine", the first computer.
