Fountain pens are neat. This is a Pilot Metropolitan that I picked up for like eighteen bucks. Better than any fucking ballpoint I've ever had.

What's your favourite writing tool? Alternately, talk about writing or whatever. There's no boundaries here, man.

A random thought that struck me: Not knowing how one's audience understands the story at a given time is a bit of a hindrance to knowing what will be effective and/or what most needs to be conveyed.

In theory, there's a sweet spot in between telling people things they already know versus assuming that they know something they really don't, but in practice it's a constantly shifting target. Maybe it can be mitigated by layering your elaborations for different levels of understanding, but at some point you've just got to knuckle down and fire off into the wild blue unknown.

Or I suppose you could pilot things in front of test audiences. But those are a little bit hard to come by.

True, it's impossible to account for even a majority of the readers to have the same interpretation of facts, but it's something more fundamental in this case. In the context that such a thought came about, it's more a personal problem of perceiving what someone on the 'outside looking in' can reasonably be presumed to know; I'm only aware of what I know and feel I need to be told explicitly when others don't understand. Without some understanding of where I stand with the audience, decision paralysis sets in quickly and no progress can be made.

Anyone here played the latest chapter of Deltarune? I'm sure a few have.

Thus far, I'm not sure how I feel about Deltarune as a whole. The second chapter is better than the first on a technical level. The direction of the story is cryptic as hell, though. I know it's supposed to be the "mirror Undertale" or whatever, but what does that really work out to?

Toby Fox's stuff is a weird one for me. It's got a whimsy that can be cute and funny and all that, but I feel kinda lost about some things. There's always sensibilities and choices of words and designs that make me feel like Toby's sitting there giggling at me because I don't get some Homestuck reference or something. Or maybe it's just in-jokey.

At least the music's pretty good.

It's weighted pretty heavily towards a niche subset of people who like shmups and the Megami Tensei talking system. If you're not a fan of either, well...

>I don't think Deltarune really stands without Undertale.
It's not meant to. Pretty sure it says on the official site that you ought to have played the previous game before playing it. I know it was mentioned somewhere.

Charged 6[a] grazes through bullets while it's in mid-air. It's a neat trick when it works, but(t) it's easy to react to, so you have to use it in advance of something that your opponent would do.

The hot rays shining
Jagged lines across the sand
The crumbling buildings
In our minds are all that stand
Just like the buffalo
Blindly following the herd
We try to recall
All the orders we have heard
I don't remember what I've been told
But the nuclear reaction can't be controlled
I don't remember what I've been told
But the nuclear reaction can't be controlled
Heat of the furnace
Dust that irradiates
Without a brain cell
The yatagarasu knows no disgrace
Out of her house
The raven rises still
Fusion is calling
To all men who bend their will
Here I am
Wingy and brainless
Waiting to heed your instruction
On my own
Invincible raven
I am a ray of destruction
All men who bend their will
We fight for conquest
In a really dark place
Fulfill our duty
Then go home without a trace
Don't need a medal
Because you cant eat those
Fusion is calling
To all men who bend their will
Rays of destruction

Im again just for you

She'll only come out at nights
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new
I've seen her here before
Watching and waiting
Ooh, she's sittin' with you
But her eyes are on your arm

So many try not to see
What you think
You're gettin' for free
The woman is wild
A she-cat tamed
By the leg of a Jaguar
Meat is the matter
If you're in it for love
You ain't gonna get too far

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She'll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She's a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She'll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)

I wouldn't if I were you
I know what she can do
She's deadly man
And she could really rip your world apart
Her face is splattered
Ooh, the beauty is there
But a beast is in the heart

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She'll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She's a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out boy
She'll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)

Village Gate
You have an indeterminate handful of village men, a short period of time to prepare, and a gate that needs to be held against an encroaching tide of unusually low flying fairies. Grey squares are impassable, brown squares are passable, but roofed.

How would you hold this gate?

I use the time between waves to make a hasty rope fence with wooden stakes, sharp stones and whatever sharp items can be attached to the fence.
I then get everyone I can find to hold a sharp stick and poke at anything that tries to come through.

So these fairies are flying high enough to fly over the closed gate, yet not high enough to fly over the walls? All while flying low enough for the ground bound guards to attack them? That is an oddly specific altitude to be flying at.

I want a website like MyAnimeList/anilist, but for THP stories. For those unaware, MAL is a database of anime. Users can go on the site and add anime to their "list", a personalized set of anime the user has seen. They can add ratings to each show, and those ratings are tallied together.

e.g. https://myanimelist.net/topanime.php

This would be useful for two reasons:
1. I can keep track of what I've read
2. People looking for classics to read can consult the big list

Problem is I don't know how to make something like this. I'm willing to throw money at any bored anons who want to put something like that together -- it doesn't have to be super complicated or as aesthetically pleasing as MAL, as long as it works.

I realize this is a huge ask and probably won't happen. But hey, a man can dream.

Hi, >>24417 here. Forgot my trip and I'm too lazy to try and figure it out.

It's been over a year since I mentioned anything, and about 2 years since I started working on this, so I figure I owe some kind of update on the matter.

First off, I'm a lazy shit with things to do outside of THP, which is the main reason it's taken so long.

With that said. Since I want to create an API, both so people can make their own better UIs and to allow me to play around with more stuff without potentially impacting uptime, I decided to write an OpenAPI Specification document, which forced me to really think about how I want everything to interact from an usability standpoint. That alone took ages, was boring and dry. But with that done, I have a clear idea of how everything is supposed to relate to each other, which should hopefully streamline the rest of the process. Also, because I have that document, anyone who wants to create their own UI to replace my shitty one will have a clear guide on how to interact with the API.

Current planned features includes the primary feature of being able to add stories to a personal list; the ability add specific posts to a story (this is mainly intended for contests where a bunch of unrelated stories are posted in the same thread).

Honestly, looking at it objectively, the only thing it offers that the current story list doesn't offer is the ability to track your personal reading status of a story, since the story list has gotten an update since this web app was requested. That, and the fact it's intended to be user maintained instead of relying on an admin going through everything and manually updating the list.

Whether or not this project is still desired, I intend to finish it, since it's a nice exercise in various technologies.

Also, once the project has reached a state where I'd be comfortable launching it, I intend to make it open source, because maximum transparency.
