    Woooaaaaahhh that sounds epic!! I say let’s go for it! 😀

    Of course, the characters can’t actually escape the castle. But that won’t keep us from making them try 😉

    Ohhhh what happens if a character gets killed by another character? Wait, they just fade, don’t they. Like the guy who the dragon killed. Teagan?

      that if they’re told they have to get to the top of the castle to escape and every level ends up being a place from one of the characters’ worlds? And then we get world building with character building and we can fight all the different elements and animals from everybody’s world!

      Cathy, that sounds amazing!!! What do you mean bad idea?

      I have little to no idea how to do it, but it sounds good. (:

       

      On this line,

      “Respectfully, sir, you are a ignominious liar.”

      I laughed aloud. Thank you for that Cathy!

      Ah ha! Tell me more!

      More? Perhaps Alessio could find out, actually…maybe not. Nithel is pretty closed about his life. The only thing you’ll be able to get him to talk about are around the last six autumns. And he’s incredibly open about that…

      But… Nithel is old. Quite old. Several thousand years old. He won’t answer if asked how old he is. Not directly at least, and then he’ll twist the question to where he’s not lying.

      Why is surviving important? Would you not rather die for the truth?

        I’ve been laughing out loud at y’all’s characters’ thoughts about Vulferym XD Especially Nithel, figuring out what the names mean

        I’m glad Nithel’s translation made you laugh!!! (:

        How are you Livi?

          Is it too late to join this?

          The character I have in mind is from my High Fantasy story.  I don’t want to spoil much of his story, so I’ll be vague for now.

          The name he answers to is Brendin Warin, though he isn’t sure it still belongs to him.  Among the Kelts ‘Brendin’ means ‘dark prince’, an irony which is not lost on him.  In appearance he is tall and fit, strong, with light reddish brown hair between his chin and shoulders in length, reddish stubble, and piercing blue eyes.  His skin is marred by patches of burns across his arms, shoulders and chest.  On his right forearm there is a black mark, about the size of his palm, in the shape of a triangle sided by flames.  Brendin is suffering from deep turmoil and furor as a result of his mutilated soul and the loss of his memories, the memories of who he was before his soul was torn.  He tries to isolate himself to avoid hurting others when he lashes out.

            I don’t mind if you join!!!

            Several characters have been, or are about to be, flipped for new ones. Good timing.

              How should Brendin enter the castle or the village?  (Also I would write that on the Castle Chronicles, right?)

                It is a castle, and there are so many ways! ( @this-is-not-an-alien has started one with a village though.)

                You could read through the Fantasy Character Castle Chronicles n.1 to get some ideas.

                Basically, you just drop them somewhere in the castle, somewhere they won’t be alone too long. Or you could drop them in a room of people as well. (:

                Then, let the games begin!

                @kimlikesart I’m good! About to be really busy with classes, starting Friday, but I’m looking forward to it. I always feel better mentally and physically when I have a schedule to work off of. I like having breaks, but the break is getting too long for me lol.


                @skylarynn
                Glad to have you join us! Like Kimmi said, just plop Brendin down in the castle, wherever you want. And don’t worry about being too consistent with descriptions of rooms and whatnot. The castle changes itself at will, adds more rooms, takes rooms away… So pretty much anything is fair game. Make up a new room to stick him in, or whatever you want!

                (Just keep in mind that the characters can’t ever go outside the castle [though if there’s a garden inside the castle, like in an inner courtyard or something, that’s cool].)

                Have fun! 😀

                  Brendin has arrived at the castle and is quite confused.  Be warned, he may be a bit dangerous if provoked, but he makes a powerful ally.

                    @skylarynn,

                    Wow, I love your picture! Have you read the Guardians of Ga’Hoole by Kathryn Lasky (if I remember right, anyway)?

                    And WELCOME!! Your intro was amazing; I’ll try to get Virtus (my new character) in this afternoon. 😉 Mind if he falls on top of Brendin or something? I think that could turn out amusing for us authors and probably terrifying for Virtus. 😛

                    Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work. And it can’t be done alone.

                        I have not read those stories no, but I’ve heard of them and they sound interesting.  The picture is actually the owl form of a wereowl side character in my urban fantasy story (her name is Cyrene Alistair and she works as a barista in a coffee shop run by Nicolas Flamel).

                        As for Virtus falling on Bren, go for it.  Just be warned Bren may react violently.

                          Ooh, a werewolf/owl thingamabob? Cool idea!

                          Alrighty, writing a post now…

                              Yeah Bren’s pretty solid.
