  1. Good point. I'm willing to be a male character for the next round. Maybe it will be harder to guess who I am that way. Ar'tara
  2. Now I'm blushing. I'm only a scholar in training but thank you. I don't do a lot with adaptations but I have a colleague who is doing an entire project on adaptions of medieval stories in modern fantasy novels. I skimmed her list and here are the ones that jumped out at me: Beowulf and Gaiman's American Gods Robin Hood legends and Beagle's The Last Unicorn, Roberson's Lady of the Forest I haven't read any of Gaiman's stuff. Does anyone know if American Gods matches up with Beowulf? Ar'tara
  3. *sigh* It only took one guess! I need to get better at being sneaky. Ar'tara
  4. This has nothing to do with the last few posts, but I was intrigued by the original question. I'm working on my Ph.D. in 20th century American and British lit (it's fun, really) and it's really interesting how many authors have "updated" older works. For example, I just read Joyce's Ulysses which is his reinterpretation of The Odyssey. It's not trying to be The Odyssey 2.0 but at the same time the novel really only works if you're already familiar with the poem. Postmodern novels also do a lot of putting sections of older books into new contexts. I guess for me, the difference between a good u

  6. Lanfear? I'm behind on the books so I will just be guessing blindly. I may guess Lanfear for everyone until I get it right. Ar'tara
  7. *wanders in* Sorry I'm late....Do I see cookies? I do! *goes to eat cookies* Ar'tara
  8. Actually, I have. I was here before the Comm/RP split. For me at least, it's not an issue of feeling resctrited. The Wolfkin don't really have alot of rules and they're the same in both places. Call me crazy, but I like to have logistics figured out before I move. Simply saying "Do it" isn't very helpful. I'm not talking about having all of the kinks worked out. I'm talking about things like "What we will do when we get here?" "How will this all work?" "Is this what's best for my org?" Honestly, I like the idea of having more stuff here. One place to go for all my DM things? Great! B
  9. Well, that's what I've been trying to do. However, when the Org Leaders asked me what would happen if they refused to move their Orgs, I was honest with them. Jason has asked us to move everything related to DM onto DM. Otherwise, it will not be considered part of DM anymore. You've got time to decide what you want to do. I've tried to be as nice as I possibly can be about this, but those are the facts of the situation. I'd really rather not have to replace anyone or restart any Orgs, but if that's the decision that's made, I'll accept it. I'm going to be honest. I am rather upset

    I agree with Daruya. Much better for my poor little eyes to read. Thank you! ;D Ar'tara Wolfkin Council
  11. Does anyone have an idea on when the mod powers will get straigtned out? I'm a former records manager and not being able to organize things is driving me crazy! Okay, crazier than normal. :P I know that you're all working hard and will get to them soon, but an time estimate would help my sanity a bit. :D Ar'tara Wolfkin Council
