I wish to apologize to everyone, due to issues at home I've not had access to my computer in a long time, and all data for Cicero except extremely early beta is gone. I no longer have a pc, and can't do anything towards rpg maker for a while. Sorry guys Oct 5, 2015

      My birthday was Wednesday and now the party is tomorrow! Can't wait until everyone reverts to being 6 year olds as I give them bubble soap, punch balloons, and kazoos.

      My piano recital is in less than 4 hours. I finally got a pocket square that matches my bowtie (they're a nice bright blue silk) but it's all wrinkled and I don't have an iron :/ Oh well

        I'm having trouble remembering the strings, since ukulele is GCEA and violin is GD... I already forgot aha. They are very similar so I mix them up a lot. I am getting better at placing my fingers in the right positions though.

      Stopped procrastinating and decided to try out parallax mapping. I used Celianna's sci-fi tiles and Abyss's Futuristic tiles. Gonna try actually putting it in the game (after reading a ton of tutorials) and see how it works. :D

      The one good thing about leaving a game to sit for over a month is coming back to it and seeing how some parts could be done much better, some parts should be taken out, and some things should be added so it flows better. Fresh eyes are always good.

      Decided to get back to work on a project I've been working on on-and-off now for a few months now that the BBash is over. I even have a cool title for it. Calem Witch Trials! (The main character is named Calem and I'm a sucker for puns.) I may make a thread for it once I get some actual progress down.

        Well, the story revolves around witches, and the main character is Calem. It's a pun off the Salem witch trials, where people were hunting down and killed for being accused of witchcraft. The trials were inhumane. Things like tying someone to a large heavy stone and throwing them in a river, because if they were a witch, they'd be able to survive.

      There's something strangely magical about being rickrolled nowadays. It's like you click the link and the instant you realize what has happened, there's a mix of defeat, satisfaction, and saltiness that makes for a perfect feeling.

      What's the weirdest/most annoying quest an RPG has ever sent you on?

      Mine was the entire game of FF 13 Lightning Returns. DO NOT TIME TRIAL ME AS A MAIN GAME PLOT.

      Sorry...I got mad :p

      So apparently I don't see colors the way most people do. I was talking with a friend of mine about hair color and I thought two shades looked the exact same, whereas he and two other people said they were very different. As an artist, this is extremely discouraging. I'm not colorblind (at least I'm pretty sure) I just have trouble telling the difference between some colors. Gonna go to the doctor for a physical soon anyways so I can talk to her about it.

        I certainly hope that nothing is wrong. But, if it's any bit comforting some people just describe colors very differently than others. If you ask my friends half of them think my hair is red and half of them think my hair is brown. When I was younger and had lighter hair, I even had a few blondes pop up in that mixture. My boyfriend and I have disagreements all the time on what is blue and what is purple. Some times it's just perspective.

      2. Atlas Rose

        Yeah, and if it were something like that I'd not worry about it, but I legitimately could not tell the difference between two colors that 3 people saw as very different. To me they looked exactly the same. That's what bothers me. Thanks though

        Hopefully there's nothing wrong. Honestly it could be nothing. Once at a family get-together we were playing Uno and no one but me could tell the difference between the blue and green cards. Sometimes your eyes play tricks on you and some people just see stuff differently - but not even all the time.

      Downloaded some nice streaming software and got myself a twitch account (
      ), so I'm going to do some teststreaming once I set it up. Anyone want to suggest a game? Otherwise I'm gonna go through the BBash games

      I'm wondering if I should start doing let's plays of some lesser known games, on here and otherwise. Two people have done so for my game, and I learned a lot more by watching their thought process while playing rather than just hearing feedback after they've finished. Dunno.

      Signing up for Dual Enrollment classes through the local community college. I get to take two courses, one each semester. I'm required to take one math, so I chose Probability and Statistics (because I'm definitely not going to pass AP Calculus) and I still don't know what else I'm going to take. I've got a grant that covers my tuition so I don't have to worry about that. I've been thinking about Computer Science, Computer Applications, or even Yoga to relieve stress.

        The descriptions I read were from a pamphlet I received through my school. You were right about applications being learning the software, as it sounds just like a tutorial for the microsoft suite (word, excel, etc). However, I don't exactly understand the description for computer science. 


        "The first of a two-semester sequence using the high-level language C. The emphasis is on problem-solving using the language and principles of structured software development. The topics covered (including the language syntax) are simple data structures such as arrays and strings, pointers, pointer arithmetic, arrays and pointers, functions, function overloading, function parameters, return types, structures and unions, and C based I/O."


        So you learn the language C and how to use it, more or less?

        You learn the language C, but more importantly you learn about data structures, control structures, programming logic, and probably design and testing strategies as well, and those things will be more useful than the language itself, because you can apply what you learn to any other language.  If you want to make games, definitely take that one, sooner rather than later.  


        Unless you really want to learn how to use the MS Office suite, I would ditch the other one altogether.  I use Office and did some e-courses on Word and Excel to learn more about the specialty kind of stuff that you can do with them, but I hardly ever use any of it.

      I've made a lot of progress with my art. Thinking about maybe opening up for commissions, but here are some more recent things. A nice soft style and a more clean style. Gotta finish up the music in my workshop first though.

        I don't really worry too much about forming a style, as it kinda develops itself depending on what project I'm working on. Both of these are for personal projects, one where lives are at risk and many people are suffering around you, and the other where you have to play hide in the seek with your pets in your yard. Even though they are both making the same expression, the style itself tells you which portrait belongs to which game. I do tend to stick to these two styles just depending on what I'm doing.

      Is anyone else tired of the "I'm young/new/forgetful so explain the plan again even though we've probably gone over it several times" character? Like, I understand it's because explaining things during the action is much more entertaining than having the player sit through the boring planning period, but come on. Find some other way to convey that info?

        Yeah, but what if the player doesn't know the information? I recently rewatching the anime Noragami and they had something where there was an event taking place that one character had never witnessed before because she was new, and the others filled her in. While this is the exact thing done so often, in that particular instance it helps to drive a point about another character taking in too many people (hence why she doesn't know). In that instance I suppose it does work, but still.

        Yeah, I've always found that to be a little silly, haha. And also the whole fourth-wall breaking, dialogue-driven tutorials in which the main hero is talking to some NPC and nodding his head to advice like; 'And if you ever need to jump, just press X. Press it again midair to double jump. Well, that's all I have to tell you, I've gotta get back to work!'


        I'm just like riiiiiight. You know too much, dude. You know too much...


        But for the plot filling details, I'd rather just have a normal tutorial and have the cast play up the fact that you now know what you need to, or maybe have a cutscene show something off in those times flare is needed.

    Sup! My name is Atlas, I am 17 years old and a student at my local art school with a major in music. I play a variety of instruments including piano, flute, oboe, ukulele, and the voice, as well as learning cello and trumpet. I also dabble in many other arts, but the only ones I really consider myself decent in is visual art (both traditional and digital) as well as costuming, sewing plush toys, and creative writing. 


    I've been messing around in RM for about a year now, working on and off on various things but never actually completing a project. My experience is mostly in creating stories, art, and recently composing music. Hopefully going to open a music workshop soon to get better at that. I have practically zero experience with scripting and can only do what I can accomplish with events. 


    My own personally interests (outside of gaming and the arts) include anime, certain TV shows (Steven Universe, Castle, House, SHIELD, etc), roleplaying, camping, musicals, and scouting. Been a boy scout for almost 3 years now! My favorite games include the Mass Effect Trilogy, Guild Wars, Last of Us, FFX, Phoenix Wright, and Professor Layton.

    Anime (FMA, SAO, and Maria the Vigin Witch are current favs)
    Piano
    Art (mostly digital, but also watercolors)
