  1. Once upon a time, a bunch of ordinary Sharders got together one December and had a great idea. (Well, it was mostly Fadran, but we helped some too!) We were to put together a Christmas Extravaganza Bash of Amazingness- with a Secret Santa, Advent Calendar, Sanderson Carol Parodies, and this: a fully original 20 chapter story written by US. It was created, well, chapter-by-chapter! We each took turns writing a chapter, but only had whichever chapter came chronologically before ours to go off of. And having read it putting this thread together, I can tell you, it is one heck of a story. It may be inconsistent at times, but that's part of the fun! I hope you all enjoy reading what we have created. Just remember to rep those involved, because they deserve it immensely! But before Hentient kicks us off... I know it's been said, many times, many ways... Merry Christmas, everyone! Well and truly, Merry Christmas. Not just from me, but from all of us who wrote this. Now... without further ado... I present: THE 17TH SHARD'S CHRISTMAS CHAPTER BY CHAPTER!!!!! Prologue, by @Hentient Chapter One: A Claus, by @Spren of Kindness Chapter Two: Responsibilities, by @The Awakened Salad Chapter Three: The First Step, by @JesterLavorre Chapter Four: Eyes, by @Matrim's Dice Chapter Five: Into the Storm, by @Bearer of all agonies Chapter Six: Abysmal Gate, by @Nathrangking Chapter Seven: Forgotten Memories, by @Ookla the Shadowed (Experience) Chapter Eight: Ghosts of the Past, by @Truthless of Shinovar Chapter Nine: A Promise, by @Channelknight Fadran Chapter Ten: New Problem, by @HoidWasTaken Chapter Eleven: Stump, by @Shard of Reading Chapter Twelve: Wire, by @Hentient Chapter Thirteen: Success, by @Spren of Kindness Chapter Fourteen: Fire, by @JesterLavorre Chapter Fifteen: Relics, by @Matrim's Dice Chapter Sixteen: Preparation, by @Bearer of all agonies Chapter Seventeen: Into Mystery, by @Nathrangking Chapter Eighteen: Northern Lights, by @Truthless of Shinovar Epilogue, by @Channelknight Fadran
  2. Here, I will recommend musicals. One a day, but you can ask for something in specific at any time. (e.g. "I want a musical with a really small cast and a cute romance." I might respond, "You should definitely check out Daddy Long Legs!") September 3-Day One Recommendation: Big Fish! Mostly focused on a father and son trying to repair their relationship, has a bit of romance and adventure. Top 2 songs: Daffodils and Be The Hero. September 4-Day Two Recommendation: Pippin! The story is kinda weird, but the music is *chef's kiss.* You might have heard Corner of the Sky or Morning Glow, but my personal favorites are Love Song and Extraordinary. September 5-Day Three Recommendation: Bandstand! About a group of men who returned from the way and made a band, hoping to win the bandstand competition. September 6-Day Four Recommendation: Children of Eden! Somehow manages to draw similarities between Adam and Eve and Noah and his wife. An adorable show, probably not the most accurate religious material, but it is far from offensive in any way. September 7-Day Five Recommendation: Anastasia! This musical is SO CUTE oh my freaking gosh I love it with my whole soul. If you liked the movie, you will LOVE the musical, even though it kind of gets rid of the magic evil guy. Oh, well. September 8-Day Six Recommendation: Six! It's day six, so of course I had to. Six is about the six wives of Henry VIII, and it's pretty fun. Kind of an explicit content warning, but still a good show. September 9-Day Seven Recommendation: Once On This Island! Coming soon to Disney+! Give it a listen, give it a watch, you won't regret checking out this fun, mythological, magical show! (When did I become one of those advertising guys?!) September 10-Day Eight Recommendation: Aladdin! Also coming soon to Disney+! Yes, it is different from the movie. The best song that was added is "Proud of Your Boy," which is super sad and sweet and ahdifalejfjdgetjlk! September 11-Day Nine Recommendation: Come From Away! Perfect for 9/11, about 36 planes in flight during the attacks that were redirected to Newfoundland, Canada. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and get EPIC chills! September 12-Day Ten Recommendation: Secret Garden! If you've read the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, you know the cute story of this musical. Pair the book with some adorable, fun songs, and that's what you get from this musical! September 13-Day Eleven Recommendation: For @Channelknight Fadran, because it is day 11, I will recommend his favorite musical, Hamilton. *sighs* This kind of causes me pain, as I was planning on mostly sticking to less-known shows, BUT I do recommend listening to/watching Hamilton if you haven't. Even if you don't normally like musicals, I really think you'd enjoy Hamilton. It's called a gateway musical for a reason, you know. I hate how popular it is, but I understand why it is so popular, and I really appreciate what it is doing to help give musical theater more attention. Plus, it's just a good show. A fun way to at least kind of understand a historical figure, even if it isn't 100% accurate, as well as a way to get new people into theater? Of course!!! We love adding new people to our cult group! I'll stop here. This is getting way too long. September 14-Day Twelve Recommendation: You know 'em and ya love 'em! They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're all together ooky, the Addams family! The songs in the musical are so fun! Wednesday is one of my dream roles, and it's just an extremely fun, silly yet serious show about trust and the importance of family! (Kind of... loosely? I'd say... yeah. Family. Definitely not just straight-up weirdness.) September 15-Day Thirteen Recommendation: The King and I! It is so cute! A Siam king brings an English woman to his kingdom to teach him English. They end up falling in love and it's so freaking adorable. That's it. Listen to it. Much cuteness!! September 16-Day Fourteen Recommendation: Ragtime! Cute, sad, etc. This musical is set in a time when blacks didn't have many rights. I haven't listened to much of it, but I do know that my favorite song from it, Your Daddy's Son, revolves around a black woman who was left by a man after he told her he loved her and got her pregnant. The baby, after he was born, reminded her of his father, causing her to hate him so much that she buried him alive. (it's ok, he lives.) September 17-Day Fifteen Recommendation: Music Man! Thanks for the idea, @Nathrangking! There's trouble in River City, and Harold Hill intends to fix it...by creating a boy's marching band! He accidentally falls in love on the way, and doesn't end up swindling the whole town as he planned. September 18-Day Sixteen Recommendation: My Fair Lady! Again, thanks @Nathrangking for the idea. I'm still mad about how long it took me to get that quote. My Fair Lady is an adorable show and it's just really cute and yeah. Listen to it!!!! It's really hard to explain the level of adorableness in words. Just listen to these shows!!! September 19-Day Seventeen Recommendation: Company! Again, pretty dang cute. It focuses a lot of the complexities of love, there's a full song about how falling in love is really freaking inconvenient sometimes, but in the end, it's worth it because "alone is alone, not alive" and falling in love helps you realize that you're alive and can feel these emotions!!! September 20-Day Eighteen Recommendation: Shrek! I feel like the musical gets a very underserved bad rep, it is actually a gorgeous show. I've been in it (kind of) twice. (The second time was a junior version, so it doesn't completely count.) The first time, I was just in the ensemble, but the second time, (the junior version) I was Donkey and it was SO MUCH FUN both times. For the junior version, I was really sad that they got rid of my two favorite songs, Don't Let Me Go (sung by Donkey, it's basically his main song, so I was really mad.), and Who I'd Be (mostly sung by Shrek and Fiona, though Donkey does have a cool part in that, too. It's a gorgeous, beautiful, perfect song so LISTEN TO SHREK!!!!!!!!) September 21-Day Nineteen Recommendation: Guys and Dolls! When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky, you can bet that he's doing it for some doll! When you spot a John waiting out in the rain, chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane. When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent for a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal, call it sad, call it funny, but it's better than even money, that the guy's only doing it for some doll! It's really cute and silly and it's an older show, so the songs are super pretty! September 22-Day Twenty Recommendation: Mama Mia! It's day twenty, and Sophie is twenty, so why not? A super cute, fun, funny show, there is a small amount of warning warranted, but you'll all be fine to listen to it. Sophie's getting married, but she doesn't know who her dad is, and she wants him to walk her down the aisle. So, she invites all three of her potential fathers to the wedding, hoping to figure out which of them will give her away. (Thanks @Nathrangking) September 23-Day Twenty-One Recommendation: Annie Get Your Gun! A young woman with a bunch of little siblings is a very good shot. She can shoot a sparrow with a bow and arrow! When she shoots a bird, it comes down with a single clean hole in the eye. A man comes to the town claiming to be the best shot they'll ever meet, and they have a shooting competition, which she wins. Oh, did I mention that she immediately falls in love with him, but he says something along the lines of, "The girl I marry will wear satin and smell nice." However, Annie gets the opportunity to spend more time with him, and he eventually returns her feelings, though they are still very competitive with each other. Some great songs include: Can't Get a Man With a Gun, Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better), I Got the Sun in the Morning, and There's No Business Like Show Business." (Thanks @Nathrangking) September 24-Day Twenty-Two Recommendation: Frozen! Yes, you know the story, yes, you know most of the songs, but there are a couple added songs that are just so incredible and adorable!!! (Try 'What Do You Know About Love' and 'Kristoff's Lullabye.') Anna in WDYKAL is literally me!! (There's a line that I very much relate with. Anna says, "Some people know their hearts the minute true love starts!" and then Kristoff says, "Some people read a lot of books." to which Anna replies, "I like books!" So, yeah. Me.) But in Kristoff's Lullabye, a kind of reprise of WDYKAL, Kristoff says, "What do I know about love? You're what I know about love." and it's just the cutest thing and chills and butterflies and lsjljfalghjkel I love it soo much!!!!!! September 25-Day Twenty-Three Recommendation: Sweeney Todd! Because why not? It's basically spooky season, right? This musical is pretty dang violent, gruesome, and disgusting. A man (Sweeney Todd) returns to London after a very long time, his daughter got sent to a mental asylum, a guy falls in love with her, and a woman who owns a meat pie shop falls in love with Sweeney. They end up killing a man, then decide to start killing people in Sweeney's barbershop, send them down a chute to the pie shop, then make pies out of humans. Fun, huh? September 26-Day Twenty-Four Recommendation: Little Shop of Horrors! A really cool plant convinces a really poor guy to start feeding it humans, which he does, starting with the abusive boyfriend of the girl this guy works with and has fallen in love with. The plant eventually basically takes over the world, so that's fun. Everyone you care about in that show gets eaten at some point. Enjoy!! September 27-Day Twenty-Five Recommendation: Daddy Long Legs! If you have been chatting with me for a long time and haven't heard me recommend this show, you must not be paying much attention. This show is the CUTEST thing EVER and I just really love it and lskfalafjsf it's impossible to describe how adorable it is. Just LISTEN TO IT ALREADY!!!!!!!!!! September 28-Day Twenty-Six Recommendation: Tuck Everlasting! Basically just copy and paste what I said about Daddy Long Legs right here. The song Time brings tears to my eyes every FREAKING time!! If you haven't listened to it, you absolutely HAVE TO!!!!!!!!!!! September 29-Day Twenty-Seven Recommendation: Groundhog Day! Maybe I should have waited until Groundhog Day to recommend this show, but....eh. I felt like recommending it now. If you've seen the movie, it's pretty similar, but it's a musical, so it's obviously much better! September 30-Day Twenty-Eight Recommendation: Matilda! Most of you have probably read the book by Roald Dahl. The musical is very empowering and I just really really love it and am supremely sad that I am definitely too old to play Matilda. Maybe someday I can be Miss Honey! October 1-Day Twenty-Nine Recommendation: Annie! Everyone's favorite curly red-haired orphan stars in this musical about love, hope, and friendship. It's really cute and yeah. Listen to it, watch it, etc! October 2-Day Thirty Recommendation: Anything Goes! This show is HILARIOUS and my high school was going to do it this year but corona and I'm sad because I really wanted to play a Chinese man. Listen to it!! Delovely is adorable, Friendship is so funny, and all the songs are just phenomenal! October 3-Day Thirty-One Recommendation: Into The Woods! Stephen Sondheim is a genius, and this is one of his most well-known musicals. I have been in it, and I played Florinda, one of Cinderella's stepsisters. Basically, he took the original Grimm Brother fairy tales and combined them into one story, linked together by a baker and his wife, who are trying to be able to have a child. October 4-Day Thirty-Two Recommendation: Phantom of the Opera! Andrew Lloyd Webber is also a genius, despite what my director says, and Phantom gives me chills. Every. Scudding. Time. Get me a guy who can sing All I Ask of You or Music of the Night and I will get over my obsession with Spook. That's a promise. October 5-Day Thirty-Three Recommendation: Newsies! Because why the crap not? If you haven't listened to/watched it...where have you been? Get on that right now. Do it. Or else. October 6-Day Thirty-Four Recommendation: West Side Story! Kind of a modern Romeo and Juliet story. So cute. Adorable. Tears coming out of my nose. Was that TMI? Sorry. Listen to it. Then you'll understand. October 7-Day Thirty-Five Recommendation: Thoroughly Modern Millie! With bobbed hair, a tasseled dress, and a new job, Millie is thoroughly modern. Hoping to woo her new boss, things are complicated when a sweet guy named Jimmy proceeds to woo her. October 8-Day Thirty-Six Recommendation: You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown! Everyone knows about Charlie Brown, but did you know that he has a musical? Now you do. Go listen to it. October 9-Day Thirty-Seven Recommendation: She Loves Me! This one is really cute and kind of similar to Daddy Long Legs, and I just really love the song Where's My Shoe because she's going insane over a shoe and it's iconic. Go listen to this show, too. October 10-Day Thirty-Eight Recommendation: Jekyll and Hyde! You all know this story, right? Well, the musical keeps the darkness and intensity and the coolness...but it's all done to MUSIC!!! And SINGING!!!!! So what's not to love? October 11-Day Thirty-Nine Recommendation: Mamma Mia! Because someone thought it was a good idea to turn the songs of ABBA into a musical about a girl in Greece about to get married, wanting her dad to walk her down the aisle, but not knowing who her dad was. Turns out, they were right! October 12-Day Forty Recommendation: Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief Musical! Yes, this exists, and yes, it is infinitely better than the movie. It stays true to the book and the songs are phenomenal. Listen to it!! October 13-Day Forty-One Recommendation: Hairspray! This musical shows that no matter what you look like, you can do whatever you want! (And find love along the way!) Super fun and inspirational!! October 14-Day Forty-Two Recommendation: Bright Star! I know @revelryintheart already recommended this one, but I want it here, so there. The music is so good and so is the story!! Listen now or forever regret not listening to it!! October 15-Day Forty-Three Recommendation: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Another Roald Dahl book-turned-musical! Super great, keeps all the original songs, but adds more and enhances the story with them!! October 16-Day Forty-Four Recommendation: Mary Poppins! You've probably seen the movie, but, as always, the musical is infinitely better, so you should listen to all of the songs and watch it if at all possible. October 17-Day Forty-Five Recommendation: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat! A really great show, pretty biblically correct, and there's singing and dancing. Basically all a person could ever want!! December 28-Day Forty-Six Recommendation: Alice By Heart! A girl and a boy during some horrible time, the boy gets tuberculosis, the girl sneaks into where he's quarantining to tell him their favorite story: Alice In Wonderland. However, the nurse rips the book. But the girl still knows the story by heart and they somehow get sucked into the story. The girl is Alice and the boy is the White Rabbit. That's all you need to know to start so NOW GO LISTEN TO IT ESPECIALLY BRILLIG BRAELIG AND ANOTHER ROOM IN YOUR HEAD.
  3. Anthony stood there, his eyes a bit watery. Because, of course, the suit was really tight. He had his white hair in a fine ponytail, and on the same suit he had worn to the wedding of Max and Althea. He stood at the side of the field, waiting. The wedding was going to start soon, and he was going to be ready. He looked at Tena, where she stood, wearing a beautiful dress, no shoes, and a radiant smile on her face. He looked down at himself, again unsure about himself. Was he really worthy of this woman? She was so... perfect. No, no turning back now. We have the baby to think of. He gave her a somewhat supportive grin, or at least he hoped so, then looked. The guests should start arriving just about now. @Blessed peace @AxeliustheGreat

  6. MR 14: The Canim Fury You are all legionnaires in the First Aleran. Since you were small, like all Alerans, you have been able to fury craft. For some, your skills have never progressed fair enough to manifest more than a basic fury. For others, you have trained for years, and have controls of furies enough to rival a Lord. When you were recruited for the First Aleran, you never expected see any real combat. But then the Canim invaded, and the First Aleran was caught in the middle of a war. Your half-century was sent behind enemy lines to learn what you could of enemy movements, and to find opportunity to hinder their forces. You have uncovered some information that Captain Scipio must get as soon as possible, but your enemy has discovered your presence. Not everyone made it out of the ambush they laid for you, and now you're trapped behind enemy lines, being hunted mercilessly. Making the most of your furycrafting, you were able to evade their initial chase, and have gained somewhat of a lead on them, but the path you need to take back is not going to be easy... The Rules: Cycles will be 48 hour combined Day-Night cycles. There are two factions: Those Loyal to Captain Scipio, and Traitors seeking to bring down Captain Scipio. The traitors do not want the Captain to receive the intelligence gathered, and so their goal is to stop those Loyal from reaching the Captain at all costs, while still surviving to report the intelligence to their superiors. -The Loyalists win once all of the Traitors are dead. -The Traitors win if they outnumber the Loyalists. -If neither side has claimed victory by the conclusion of the 8th cycle , both sides lose (their hunters catch up to them before they reach safety), unless a player scouts on the last cycle, in which the scouts team wins. Furycrafting: There are 6 different types of furycrafting: Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Metal, and Wood. Everyone has different abilities in fury crafting, and this differences are represented by 3 tiers. Each type of furycrafting has 3 tiers, each which has its own ability. Higher tiers have access to the abilities of the lower tiers. The abilities are as follows: When there’s a conflict between two things (tied lynch, multiple action/vote redirects on the same player each trying to shift to different players), the result will be decided by a coin flip. Players are able to make 2 actions per cycle. Each tier counts as a separate action. You cannot use the same action twice. Only players with Water or Windcrafting can open PM's. PM's can be made at any point during a cycle, up to the players limit. PM's are between you and one other player. Remember to include Elbereth and I in all PM's created. Label the type of crafting used in the PM title. For example: "MR14 Hael-Elb (Water)" or "MR14 Elb-Alv (Wind)". PM's remain open for 2 cycles (the one in which it is opened, and the next) before being closed, unless roleblocked or redirected. PM spies get both sides of the conversations their target was included in, but not the name of the other players in the conversations. The Traitors have a faction kill, and a doc to collaborate in. The types of kills will be differentiated in the writeup (i.e. Lynch, Traitor, Wood, Fire, Metal, Earth) Order of Actions: > Roleblocks/Redirects (W1, W2, W3, E1) > Scouting (E3) > Vote changes (F1) > Lynch > Protects (E2, M1, M3) > Kills (Traitor kill, F2, F3, M2, Water3) > Scans/Spying (A2, Water2, A3) If Person A blocks Person B, and Person B was blocking Person C, Person A block Person B’s roleblock, so Person A’s actions go through. Provided a redirect isn’t blocked or redirected, it happens before roleblocks. If two players attempt to redirect the same action(s), a higher tier gets priority, otherwise a coin flip decides the result. Players can have more than one type of furycrafting, but every player will have at least one which will be designated their primary furycrafting. Each player's primary furycrafting will be public knowledge. Note that this will be the type of furycrafting, rather than what tier. Players with a Tier 3 fury can designate an heir. This does not take up an action, nor does it need to be announced publicly. Upon their death, their fury passes to their heir. If no heir is named, a recipient will be randomly chosen. The recipient will gain a Tier 2 version of the fury. Players who are inactive for 48 hours will be 'left behind', and killed. For the purposes of this game, I am defining inactivity as not making any game relevant posts. Now I realize this is a reasonably strict filter, but I understand that sometimes life happens, and if you let me know, I'll make arrangements. You can post in thread, or send me a PM. I can neither confirm nor deny that there is or isn't any of, but not limited to, the following: Hidden Factions, Sleeper Agents, WMD , Vord Elbereth will be Co-GMing! And Alv will be your Impartial Moderator. Signups will last for a bit under a week. I may extend it by a day or two if numbers are too low, but hopefully we'll be fine! Player List: Write ups:
  7. To all the fellow Canadians out there, Happy Canada day! I hope its not flooding or raining wherever you happen to be.
