PostSubject: Are There Any Writers Here?   Fri Jun 20, 2014 7:43 pm

So I'm currently in the process of writing a book series, and so far all is going well! I was curious if any other members here have a passion for writing? I've read some of the fan fictions here and they're all pretty good.

Out of curiosity, does anyone here hope to become an author one day?

I write, but have no interest in being a published author. Nothing turns something you love into something you hate more than making it an obligation.

I like script writing. And at one point, was writing a Killer Instinct script.

That's great advice! You don't want to turn a hobby into a chore, I guess I don't find writing to be an obligation though.

Did you ever finish it? I've tried script writing before, but I found it really confusing.

I write short stories and turn them into comic pages whenever I get time.

The Killer Instinct script I have is about halfway finished. It has more character development than the games, but is still accurate to the characters personalities (Orchid is a cunning secret agent, Jago is a quiet and collected shinobi-like monk, TJ is a man who seeks redemption but still has a tough guy attitude, Sabrewulf is a rich German with some pretty severe Bipolar and Lycanthropy issues, Thunder is a Native American who is searching for his missing brother Eagle, Glacius is a somewhat passive prisoner of Ultratech who will do what he is asked to be set free, Cinder is a former prisoner-turned-firespawn who is coaxed by his Ultratech "Therapist" (he cannot deal with the pressures of the transformation alone, which would mean lost money on the experiment) to enter the tournament so that he can hopefully win a cure from the company who refuses to help him any further, Riptor is a very intelligent and genetically engineered Raptor who is angered by some of Ultratech's other creations being more well looked upon, Spinal is an ancient spirit who is forcefully bound to do Ultratech's bidding, Fulgore is a machine that is meant to terminate possible threats to the companies agenda, and Eyedol, who is an ancient warlord released on accident by some end game chaos between Jago and Fulgore.) Simply put, there are also various sub characters as well, like Chris Tilston, who accompanies Thunder, or a Muai Thai fighter (an British Woman named Anna Frost) that is supposed to be a rival for Combo. Also, a lot of these guys die.

I would love to do comics, but I can't draw. It's cool that you can though!

Sounds complex, but that's always the best type of story in my opinion. Are the ideas here an original take on the game or are you just turning the game into a screenplay?

What I mean is, I want to do it because I want to, not because I have to.

Both, because the original story had very little to offer (unless you actually knew about the comics), and because of the ideas placed in Killer Instinct. A large and powerful corporation holds a tournament at it's own headquarters, and whoever wins gets a grand prize of whatever the victor decides. The battles are no holds barred, and the fighters will do whatever it takes to win. That's a simple premise, right?

That's probably the case with most writers though. None of them probably feel like they have to write.

When it's stripped to it's basics, yeah it seems simple! Sometimes, less is more though!

I figure that the most I go into in terms of additional story would be the people at Ultratech and how they react with the fights that they monitor. Especially when a fight between Jago and Fulgore gets so out of hand that they inadvertently cause Ultratech's systems to go haywire, making their power core to begin to melt down, causing the VR Rooms to glitch out (why else would you fight on a roof or in TJ's hometown or a Germans own Castle home?) and eventually releasing Eyedol, who massacres the staff of Ultratech, killing the companies CEO, and then chasing down the remaining survivors. Heck, even Riptor kills some employees after being released.

I draw too, but I tend to make "little" mistakes, and then have to start all over.
