Anubis, The Apprentice Scrivener
Quick Speech (Listen up children, this stuff's important!)
I've officially created a firm hold as a part of the CYS community once again. For the most part, everything is cool now. It's the School year again, and if I'm not doing homework, I'm unwinding with some Modern Warfare 2 or watching movies or hanging out with friends. I make an effort to visit the site at least once per day, but I might be on vacation every so often and not be able to access the interwebz. Even so, I am very active and do work on my stories frequently, so just because I don't release a demo or write a page even doesn't mean I'm not working. That's basically it; check out my info below if you dare/care.

Misc. Note - Story Preferences
Since I really can't use Scripting very well, I'm going to stick with the Advanced Editor's more simple variables and the Basic Editor for now. I feel I can do more with the simple and more reliable stuff than trying to do too complex things.
I'm involved in the creation of The Crusades - I'm a co-author along with Hoplite. He's the original creator, and I'm giving some advice and such.
Now my games:
Cold Blood tells the tale of a fictional sniper named Alexei Kastov, a private sent to the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942. He becomes drafted into one of the elite Red Army sniper divisions, a band of soldiers designed to instill fear in the black hearts of the Wehrmacht. While Kastov and the people he meets are designed by me, the Battle is not. These events, more-or-less, are real. It'll be more mature game because of gory detail and the usual war story stuff. Cold Blood will use some simple variables to manage combat and inventory.
I'm still making Cold Blood's story structure ideas and whatnot in my head and on paper / in excel, so I might not be writing a lot on the site, but I am still definitely working on.

Read Anubis's Profile.
In 2141, the polar ice caps began melting, causing most of the land on Earth to sink. Cities sank to the bottom of the ocean and people fled to high ground. In 2205, the polar ice caps show no change in terms of reappearing. It seems humans have caused too much global warming.
You play as any other civilian in what was Colorado, the highest ground near your hometown. You must steal resources, get vehicles, and escape to one of the havens over the water where people seek refuge from the ever-growing water level.
You play as Horus, Egyptian god of vengence, and you must avenge Osiris's (god of the afterlife and death, a good thing) death by killing Set, god of evil (originally Storms)

This quiz is for people who are Nintendo Fans, like myself. It will be questions that range from the beginning to the future!
This is a quiz about trivial things you don't need/want to know! They are all True or False questions. And cheating isn't allowed. Literally.

1942. These are the darkest days of the German-occupation of Stalingrad. Great comrade Stalin's city.
The Wehrmacht are savage. Their commanders are ruthless. Their minds are corrupted. They seek only to destroy us. They murder our men, rape our women, torture our children. They want only the blood of civilians on their hands.
But, we have a something the Germans don't. Skilled snipers. One by one, we shall eliminate the enemy - cleanse our city of this plague, this cancer.
It is our turn to destroy them!
You are Alexei Kastov. When you reach Stalingrad by ferry over the Volga, you are but a mere recruit. You have no proper training. You barely know how to handle a rifle. You have very little hope. But as the battle continues, you earn your training through combat, and eventually, you join an elite group of snipers whose sole purpose is to eliminate the German plague that ravages Stalingrad, one obliterated head at a time.
Special thanks to Solo, Kumquat, and JJJ for help with scripting, and Rommel for playtesting!

Ah shit, there's no easy way of saying this, but I'm going to be very busy for the next few days, and I've even been busy these past few days. As in, out of reach of a computer. I won't be able to be in the Mafia game very seriously. I'm real friggin sorry guys, but I've got be places and, essentially, I have a life. Sorry JJJ, but I might have to back out, unless of course you find a way to make things work. I suggest you find a replacement for me. Fuggin sucks man, I wish I had more time.

Hey there, Purin! I'm Anubis, and I'm a sex machine! It's great to have another member who isn't a dumbass and who takes writing seriously...unlike a lot of us. lol Enjoy your stay and good luck with your stories. If you need an editor, I'd be happy to help!
And Mage, here's a spoiler for ya: General Shepherd betrays and kills Roach and Ghost.

Anyway, it looks like we're going to have to replace the user who isn't responding to your PMS, JJJ. What an inconsiderate bastard. You guys NEED to break up!

YOU ARE DEAD DEAD DEAD. You and your friends are dead. GAME OVER YEAAAAH!
Anyway, I'm totally fucking in. I was just sleeping while you made this thread, so sorry for being late.
Holy Crap this site is still on?! on 2/10/2010 8:17:59 PM
Well I at the very least check the forums once a day, so there's me. JJJ is also a frequent dudeman. Um, Zero maybe? Rommel? Oh, definitely Alexp.

Oh Shoot, I barely remember the days of mafia. This time, maybe we can actually have it be in a real Mafia setting.

Well not much happened, but a few days ago, my testicles fell off. You see I became a Ghoul a few years ago, and now, because of all the raditation, my body is really starting to fall apart. I keep losing my arm and having to stitch it or duct tape it back on, but now that my testicles fell off, I am starting to get depressed. I'd rather die than live like a monster. I didn't re-attach my testicles because there's no point and they smell horrible. It's very embarrassing and I've talked to my family about it. I don't want to disturb my friends or anything, so I kept it private until now. Do you have any ideas about dealing with this problem? Thanks, I really appreciate any help you can offer.
