Titled "Urban Legend in Limbo", AKA "2spooky42hoo edition", this game was revealed by ZUN himself in a recent game event. Not much is known about it, except that it will be released sometime in 2015.

Rumors say it will be a "First person exploratory "horror" game" starring Marisa, but they're all but confirmed. Art style seems to belong to Moe Harukawa, the same gal who did the Forbidden Scrollery manga.

considering they found a way to do HM, it's plausable.

For some reason Marisa now utilizes the power of urban Legend spirits.

Namely shoving People into Hanako of the Toilets stall.

Which means they probably met when she was taking a fat Mushroom shit, or using the loo.

She's finally taking after her mentor and embracing undeath!

From what's been gathered, all the girls in the game are using it (mainly as their last words as opposed to an actual attack of thiers); a risky move.

HEY >>12309

SITE'S NOT DEAD

SO LET'S DO THIS AGAIN

As some of you might know, Nanowrimo is next month, November. It stands for "National Novel Writing Month," in which the goal is to crank out a 50k word story in a month. The story will probably be awful.

But we're not going to do that.

No, the challenge I put to you, THP, is to do DAILY UPDATES FOR ALL OF NOVEMBER.

While I didn't succeed last year, Flanders, Kriss, Wander, Moon, Yatagarasu, Waymaker and some random-ass anon all made it (more or less).

SO LET'S FUCKIN' DO THIS

Anon screwing around in /border/ here. 30 days, 30 story posts. Yay.

Who else has managed to do it? Or is managing, since there's still most of a day left before November runs out.
>>No. 13582
>>13581
As long as I update before midnight, my time, I'll have been successful. After which, I may just slow the hell down again... Hopefully not to glacial speeds though.
>>No. 13583
So, NaNoWriMo is over and I'm going to assume BorderAnon and I are the only ones to succeed, is that right?

>>No. 13557
The problem with being allowed to make your own board is that there's way too many of them now.

I'm forgetting which one, but there was a japanese imageboard-type site that let users freely create boards, and it kind of just died because the userbase was spread so incredibly thin.

As it is, with a dedicated all things touhou board it should still be fine. but from what I've seen the conversations still become spread out across the entire board, in what I think of as the Reddit affect.

If you only have a single general to share, the conversation of the group is centralized and easy to follow. Having a board gives the options of sub-general threads for more specific topics, but I haven't seen enough organization yet.

I'll be keeping an eye on it yet though. The community doesn't seem bad.

HEY FAGGOTS GUESS WHAT TIME OF YEAR IT IS AGAIN

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ANONYMOUS. Non-anonymous posts will be disqualified.

Deadline is 15 September at 23:59 GMT (which, conveniently enough, is what site time is). Any submissions after that will be ignored.

The number of posts you can use maximum is two. MAKE VERY SURE THEY'RE OBVIOUSLY LINKED TO ONE ANOTHER. IN-THREAD LINKS ARE SUGGESTED.

Next, the categories. Veteran/newbie, normal/porn, the usual. We'll be dividing vet/newbie by a simple cutoff: if you've been writing here since before January 1st, you count as a veteran. All others are newbies.

I think you can distinguish between porn/non-porn yourselves.

Judging will be done the same way it was last contest: I will aggregate a list of the entered stories, and everyone will be allowed to vote for a story in each category: that is, non-porn/newbies, non-porn/vets and porn. I'm lumping the porn categories together due to low turnout for newbie porn. Voting will last another week, ending on 22 October at 23:59 GMT.

It was bad. It wasn't Hitler. There's exactly one cure for bad writing, and that's writing more. You can either knuckle under and give up (you know you really don't gotta do this whole dogshaming thing about your entry because it flopped), or you can just stick to it, keep trying, and learn from what you do wrong.

Keep trying.
>>No. 13544
>>13543
This. Whenever I try to go back and read any of my early writing (whether it was for the site or elsewhere), it almost provokes physical pain. I got better by writing anyway.

For what it's worth, I wouldn't really call your story bad. Incomplete? Sure. Rushed? Definitely. However, it looked to me like you had something, and if you had more time to work on it and refine the details, it would have come out fine. What killed you wasn't you, it was the timeframe you were working in. In the past, when I've forced myself to rush, I've always been unhappy with the results, so don't use the quality of your writing while you're under pressure to meet a deadline as a measure of your general skill.

/shorts/ is always open, even without the writing contest. Why not try taking your time writing and post the story you wanted to write, instead of the one you were forced to by the deadline?
>>No. 13545

>don't use the quality of your writing while you're under pressure to meet a deadline as a measure of your general skill.
I'd say my main problems lie with the fact that when I have no pressure, because there are no expectations or there is no deadline, I can think of a story, but not write it, while, when under pressure, can write rather fast, however my creativity becomes limited.
The only reason I was able to write what I wrote is because, when I thought the deadline had passed, the weight fell off my shoulders and I got some creative ideas, which I would work on when I heard the deadline had actually not been reached.

Okay, so we used up all of Thread Six, so we obviously need a new one.

I'll start with my own question, What stories in /others/ are worth reading? There are a few that seem promising, but I'd rather focus on one or two at a time to avoid draining my entire day away. I prefer active stories too.

Silver of Sovereign had Tokiko as a main character, if I remember correctly. It died is on "hiatus" after four threads. I can't really think of any others that have her as more than a passing mention.

Any good ones out there with Sekibanki, Wakasagihime or Kagerou as a main character?

The new characters (largely from the DDC trial) have actually shown up in a few stories.

Paper Football Days has Sekibanki

Gensokyo's Public Enemy seems like it's going to have Raiko.

We've had three of these?

Anyway, the important thing's the rules, so I'll get those out of the way first.

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ANONYMOUS. Non-anonymous posts will be disqualified.

Deadline is 30 September at 23:59 GMT (which, conveniently enough, is what site time is). Any submissions in October will be ignored.

While I'm tempted to also put in the one-post "fuck balista" rule, I'm willing to try out something new. So, this time around you'll have two posts to write your story with. MAKE IT VERY CLEAR THAT YOUR POSTS ARE RELATED. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO THINK ANY MORE THAN I HAVE TO.

Next, the categories. Veteran/newbie, normal/porn, the usual. We'll be dividing vet/newbie by a simple cutoff: if you've been writing here since before May 1st, you count as a veteran. All others are newbies.

The previous thread hit the auto-sage limit and I thought we should keep it going. So, I'll start it off.

Reimu has suddenly become ill with a disease that has never been seen in Gensokyo and Eirin can cure it, but she needs to gather the materials. Eirin sends Tewi and Reisen out to gather everything, but things don't go as planned. One of the ingredients is a plant that doesn't grow in Gensokyo so they must venture into the outside world to find it. Time being of the essence would mean that Reisen and Tewi might have to resort to less, savory, means to survive in the outside world as they search for the ingredient. [spoiler]Less savory could mean anything. From murder, to theft, to whoring themselves out. Up to the writer/voters[spoiler]

I'm also thinking about a dungeon crawling type story that features the characters as adventurers in a fantasy style game due to Yukari being bored. The kicker being that Yukari isn't the villain! She'd be one of the original members of the party! It would feature most of the characters in some way/shape/form. The initial party would be-
-Yukari (Protagonist) as the "Support Mage". She would manipulate the "borders of what one is capable of" to increase their "stats".
-Reimu (Sidekick) as the "Red Mage". She would have minor offensive and defensive spells as well as moderate physical power. She's not very keen on the "Game" Yukari created.
-Marisa as the "Rogue Mage". Her specialty would be offensive magic and swiping items from foes. She agreed to this on the terms that she gets to keep whatever she steals.
-Tenshi as the "Fighter". Basically the one who will pummel the enemies until they die, a few spells but nothing major. Yukari had planned on leaving her out of this, but Marisa accidentally let it slip and Tenshi demanded that she be part of it.
-Nue as the "Blue Mage/Mimic". She'd be able to use enemy attacks and copy the appearance and abilities of party members (Stats remain the same but she gains access to some of their spells). Nue wasn't the initial choice to r

So I've seen people made up stories about Tank tsukumogami. But since i know there's somewhere in canon that said nothing built in the past 100 years could become a tsukumogami, why don't someone write a story about a colonial era Man-o-War? Imagine, a tsukumogami, a cute girl that's 80 percent of her bodymass consists entirely of cannons!

>But since i know there's somewhere in canon that said nothing built in the past 100 years could become a tsukumogami
That's because the definition of a Tsukumogami is an item that has been used for a hundred years before gaining life.
Or one of the definitions at least. It's a bit fuzzy. I'm sure there are some good sites about Japanese folklore out there that can expand on it.

I'm also not really sure if a war machine like a battleship could ever become one, but whatever. Feel free setting sail on the SS Moe if that's your poison.

Just make sure that you have a good idea for a story beyond just "moe battleship". That's not exactly a lot to go on.
