On the subject of MMOs, Maple Story is really the only one I'd recommend. It's cutesy, but it has enough sense to actually be somewhat challenging. The quests aren't just the same thing over and over again, and unlike things like Runescape, it's free without doing something stupid like restrict most of the good features and areas to paying members. (Sorry, Runescapers, but if I want to play a game, I'd prefer being able to do it for free and still be able to roam the entirety of the game's world.) On the other hand, leveling up tends to be tedious when you hit level 30, but at least they stock the world with so many monsters at a higher level and so many job classes with interesting abilities and advancement incentives that it's somewhat worth it to grind.

But other than that, yeah, a lot of the good ones are pay-for. Or stupid and restrict all the good stuff for paying players. (How the crap is the free version of games like Runescape supposed to be an accurate taste of the game when you don't even get access to all of the skills you can possibly use?)

Same here. I played it for a few weeks earlier this summer before the server I used for it shut down. It was fun, but leveling up took ages, like Valentine said. I haven't really played any others (except for Runescape like 5 years ago). I've found myself playing card games more now...

Oh boy, this is crazy stuff.

Anyway, I'm ShadowLakitu Ninja Caterpie, 13 (or am I? Yeah, I am), and I'm awesome. Or maybe the latter is an over understatement... I'm single (or maybe not...? Just don't go onto my LJ) and taken. Wait... ANYWAY, I have an unhealthy obssession currently for MapleStory.

On that subject. JAX YOU LIEK MAPLE TOO?! AND THAT OTHET GUY ABOVE ME?!

@.@

Well, I used to play, but the server I played on is closed now, so I'm not playing anymore.

Are we allowed to post questions in this too?

Have you ever/Do you ever stray away from the usual in what you write?
(And no, I don't mean do you stray away from the cliche adventure/gym challenge. If someone knows what I mean, can you explain for me, since I can't really explain.)

Oh yeah. It's eaten a good many hours of my time. I say this in the past tense because right now, I really need a better connection to patch it. Otherwise, I've got dial-up, and that just doesn't fly for downloading that stuff.

In any case, I'm currently working on a level 31 page on Kradia (Global). First serious attempt at a warrior, really. I've also got a level 31 cleric on Khaini, a level 32 hunter on Bera, and a level 40 cleric also on Kradia. Yeah, uh, now you know why I say it gets tedious at around level 30. (Although I ditched my last cleric -- who was my last main -- for good reasons. I play in a party/guild with Gizamimi Pichu/Dani, and she took up a cleric that eventually bypassed mine in leveling. So, I figured I'd try warrior instead, considering we have no meat shield. That and I like smashing things with swords. Mmm, mob attack.)

Sure. Go ahead.

Basically, you're asking us if we have a genre/mood of fanfiction we usually write -- like someone who only writes original trainer fics. On top of that, you're asking us if we ever stray away from those grooves. Am I right?

If so, then I try not to fall into a main genre or mood, yet I still do. I like trying to sample as much lit as I can to test myself and see if I can pull it off. A lot of the time, though, I have a bad habit of writing angstfic and darkfic, so a lot of the time, even if I do stray away from those themes, I end up gravitating back towards it. Bad habits die hard, really.

Something along those lines. I'm just wondering how many of you take risks in your writing and make something so different from the norm, that it may keep people away.

I was playing Adventure Quest out of extreme boredom, and then when I tried to log in it said that all 6000 free player spots were taken, well the number went under 6k, and then it said that all 5000 spots were taken...

Oh yeah, I played Maple Story, too. I have a level 35 hunter and I think I have a level 20 something mage (or whatever they're called). Got really tedious after a bit, and my clan kind of got on my nerves lol. I love the design, though.

I also have an account on Puzzle Pirates if that counts as MMO, but I usually keep to myself there without talking to anyone. :P

Runescape is pretty limited for its ftp players but you can still have a good feel of the game even if a good chunk of the skills are locked. Most of the member skills are stupid anyway. Plus membership is cheap. Lol.

Anyway, topic!

Have you ever/Do you ever stray away from the usual in what you write?
(And no, I don't mean do you stray away from the cliche adventure/gym challenge. If someone knows what I mean, can you explain for me, since I can't really explain.)


I think I've tried to dip my toes into as many genres that I'm comfortable writing with, but I usually levitate toward humor or adventure fics. I really should try fantasy or another genre that would bring me out of my comfort zone, but I feel it'd be a complete flop. ^^; For pokemon genres, I usually write about the game characters. I don't think I've ever written a story with the manga characters and I think I have one story that uses Ash. I'd say 75% of my stories are from characters in the games and the rest is original characters.

Really, tedious? I'm a level 47 F/P and it's only been four weeks...

The EXPlosion event makes things a lot easier...xD
And no one's on Broa...?

Figures that the week that I'm too busy to go get the patch, they have a massive EXP giveaway.

I have minor characters (11 - 15 levelers) on pretty much every server. I'd pick my Broa thief up again... except for the fact that since I made her, they put blue mushrooms in the roads around Kerning.

Seriously, who was on crack when the monsters got relocated? Back in the day, all you had to worry about from Lith to Kerning was orange mushrooms raping you. Now, it's orange mushrooms and blue mushrooms. And that's if you don't go the long way and get raped by axe stumps instead. (And never mind the taxi service. If you have enough money to take the taxi and buy all your equipment so you don't get owned on the way out of Kerning, you're either cheating or sucking up to a vet.)

However, I thank them for not putting the candle and cake monsters smack in the middle of every map. Now, if you guys can do that for the obnoxious eggy pops (you know, the ones where if you go within two feet of them, they decide to attack the crap out of you), we'd be set. I mean, really. Level 10+ eggs that can shoot you (when you're under level 10 and equipped with melee weapons) infesting the way between Henesys and Ellinia? I take it you people in Nexon just want everyone to become bowmen for Easter.

I usually write drama, suspense, and comedy, but I also try out other genres. For instance, I tried both sci-fi and romance for the Serebii contests, but I utterly fail at those. XD Wrote comedy for one of the Serebii contests too, but that one I did much better than I anticipated. I tried mystery too, and I think I did well with that.

It's not an EXP giveaway, it's just that the EXP rates are changed - 25% lower EXP needed! =D

I just have to share this. Some people are so damned dumb. That's fine. But some people really don't know when to keep their trap shut.

I found a hilarious one on Astinus' profile from a year ago (in a convo)

"my fic is not off topic/spam! i'm reporting you!"

Reporting a mod for doing her job...

xD

And @above I meant Xanthine, but that's fine. 8D
