Re: Eternal Doctrine, sequel to Groombridge Log

It's great to see this story being still alive - I very much enjoyed reading this, and hope you keep it up until it's finished :) It seems to me that your writing has improved since the early days of Groombridge Log. I also like how you've become more independent and original, especially conversatio...

Re: The new Star Control thread

This is wonderful news :D Not quite what I hoped for (an SC2 sequel, or even prequel/reboot along the lines of the storyline we know and love), but nevertheless I'm optimistic. And Frogboy, your coming here and talking to us like this is very much appreciated. That, as well as the convincing promise...

Re: Let's help Stardock make the best Star Control possible!

In no particular order these are the things we're trying to hold true to: 1. Star Control 3 isn't canon. 2. Get Paul/Fred as involved as they are allowed to be. 3. Don't just look at Star Control 2 but also Starflight. 4. Collaborate with the fan community. There's 20 years of thought involved that...

Re: Groombridge Log Part I (novel) finished!

Well, in this fic that's handled by having various characters say in-game text that was originally all Hayes's, or have them say things from the supplemental materials (the manual, right?). Yes, that is exactly what I'm trying to do. And I try to make it feel as natural as possible. The dialog ofte...

Re: Groombridge Log Part I (novel) finished!

Having written a fanfic... it's nearly impossible to use more than snips of in-game text because the captain barely speaks . It's always a one-sided conversation. The only two exceptions I can think of are the Kohr-Ah quote in my sig (or location?), and the VUX dialog from P6014, which I wrote with...

Re: Groombridge Log Part I (novel) finished!

I've read this, and I have to say... I like it! What feels a bit glitchy is the coexistence of original content (by you) and copy-pasted conversations & info from the game and supplementing materials. Sometimes the copy-pasta stuff is jarring because the style feels different to yours. Maybe you cou...
