I'm about to pull a "you people"—
oh, but don't worry.
It's not in a racist way or anything.

De Milite Inprudenti
>

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.


Slaying Song
>

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

WHAT IS PROGRESS?

If you manage to sneak peek this thing, great; just don't rate or I'll hunt you down and fucking kill you be sad.

Also, I recommend refreshing your cache (which can be done with Ctrl + F5, Cmd + Shift + R, Shift + Reload, usw.) on the title page.

ALSO, NICE BEARD, BUT THIS TEXT IS HARD-ISH TO READ.

Username Descenders Cut Off in Forum Posts on 3/23/2017 5:09:13 AM

In forum posts, usernames with characters that extend below the baseline ("g", "p", "q", "y", "_", etc.) are cut off at the bottom. Underscores in particular are rendered completely invisible because of this.

The property overflow: hidden; on the .forum-message .avatar-container .user-name selector is the cause of it, and moving it to the parent .forum-message .avatar-container would fix it. You might also want to give .forum-message .avatar-container .user-name the property white-space: nowrap; to prevent it from wrapping anything to a new line, assuming that's intended.


[Storygame] Load Savegame on 3/22/2017 3:43:17 PM

Barring convenience, wouldn't it just make more sense? I know you're told where to access your game saves when you save, but that doesn't mean it isn't more intuitive to actually be able to load a save for a game within the game itself. Plus, it'd even make it easier to jump back to a save point while playing since you'd never need to leave the window.


Is this how it's supposed to be written? on 3/21/2017 4:13:58 PM

If you're not using the rich text editor, you can use JS:

%%MERCIFUL%%% Merciful/% Ruthless


Or, make a separate variable for ruthless and update it in a link script:

%RUTHLESS := 100 - %MERCIFUL

And:

%%MERCIFUL%%% Merciful/%%RUTHLESS%%% Ruthless


Alternatively, just use a page script instead:

$PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + %MERCIFUL + "% Merciful/" + (100 - %MERCIFUL) + "% Ruthless"

Dialoque in poetry? on 3/16/2017 1:34:38 PM

I don't see any reason why dialogue wouldn't be allowed in a poem. People talk in poems all the time. Just treat it like any other part of the poem and adhere to the rhyme and meter. And personally, I think it makes the most sense for each stanza to use "paragraph rules" for quotations, so if a quote overflows a stanza, use only an opening quotation mark on the next stanza.

"Be quiet you insolent fool!
I am the best, and the most supreme,
Even if you call me cruel...
I will beat you, by using the unseen.

"I'll use my power to change your path,
Slowly making the world feel my wrath.
My body invigorated and your life, complicated,
I will make this section of thy battle... separated."


"Who Is Online" Design Differs on Forums on 3/16/2017 12:30:17 AM

At first, I thought one of the images was resized, but no; there's actually a 1px difference between them. The body's font-size is smaller than it is elsewhere and the footer-content is inheriting that. It's also got the same line-height issue that the sidebar did (which means both differences are present in the Notepad and Messages as well).

Adding both font-size: small; and line-height: initial; to the footer-content would mostly fix it, but even then there'll probably still be some little alignment issues. Might as well add line-height: initial; to #Footer, too.

Don't forget that each section needs to be assigned its appropriate id for the anchoring to work. e.g.:

id="Sections">Sections:
