- Listening to Likes on Youtube

- Doing Math homework. It's not hard, but there are so many problems to solve!

- Reading the latest FW article!

...

Okay, this has been something that I've been wondering about for awhile. I know that you guys have TFW as the backstory for TSL, but... considering current events (Andrew Greyson's Arc, Derek's Arc enc) does that mean the in-game characters know all of this already by the time the game is taking place?

If it does, then why (in-universe anyway) is the newspaper (and the press in the building) in episode 2 the 2nd issue instead of whatever the last issue will be (which I'm assuming is going to talk about either The Wedding or The Tragedy)? Yes, I know it's to solve a puzzle or two, but in universe, wouldn't Graham be thinking Wait a minute! Haven't I read this before? Huh. Must be a slow news day.?

Seriously? No explanation, Katie? Say? Cezar?

Also, with the revelation that The Dig that Changed History gives us, I find what Graham has to do in the Winged Ones city with the painter in episode 4 very ironic.

I didn't see that one til now, sorry.

Yes, the current story is all taking place before the opening of Ep 1 of TSL. The articles posted on the bulletin board in-game are selected ones from their recent issues (ones more relevant to Graham's situation, largely).

And...in part, I'd say wait until the end of the storyline that's happening in FW, which isn't over yet. Also, keep in mind that Graham isn't a native of the Green Isles--he probably doesn't read the FW regularly, and he's not stopping to read their back log archive in the midst of the crisis he's dealing with.

Which storyline? Andrew's?

Also, I've been wondering this for awhile now: we've seen Valanice's Dreamworld, Rosella's and Alexander's, but what about Graham's? What would his look like?

- Writing in this thread.
- Relieved that my car is now freed from the garage.
- Surprised that I managed to mangle the garage door.
- Feeling embarrassed because of the look of complete and utter shock on my sweetie's face when he came home.
- Glad my camera's broken.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.

Okay.

What does that have to do with time running backwards?

unless you were refering to my post about the Dreamworlds and me wondering what Graham's would be?

I would guess the Dreamworld reference, although the sound effect has turned into a meme for dramatic moments in a more generic way, too. Or any moment where something is revealed to have a twist or have more to it than at first thought.

Also, the movie is well worth checking out! :)

- Trying to write a fight scene in QFG1:SYWTBAH! Maybe some of you guys can help?

-
Now fully rested, Finn left the Dryad’s Glade and headed northeast as he’d been told. He’d soon came across a small area filled with large rocks and a couple bushes.

His eyes darted around- it was too quiet with too many places to hide. He felt that he was being watched from all sides. Cautiously, he drew his dagger and casted Zap on it. Grasping his dagger in one hand and holding a Flame Dart in the other, he asked softly, “Alright, who’s there? Come out and show yourself!”

He heard rustling behind him and whirled around. “C-come on,” he stammered. “I can take you on! S-stop -ahem!- Stop being cowards and face me like men!” Finn said, trying to bolster his confidence. He put more power into his Flame Dart, making it bigger and hotter, and raised his voice, “You don’t know who you’re messing with. I am Finn, son of Keenan Dillon the Wizard! I am a friend of the forest, and YOU are intruding!” the rustling got louder and he heard snorting from the bush. Finn let out a hearty laugh, “Ha! Scared, are you? Maybe I oughta just burn that bush- OOF!” Finn felt something hit him square in the back and he fell flat on his face, dropping his dagger and causing his Flame Dart to fizzle out.

“Ow! What was-“ WHACK! He was struck again, this time a nice hard rap on the head. Finn twisted his head around, and looked into the bright, wicked eyes of an ugly green skinned Goblin! Finn turned over onto his back, giving the little monster a kick to the jaw in the process. The Goblin snorted and staggered back. Finn, seeing his chance, quickly grabbed his dagger back and ignited another Flame Dart.

He threw the spell as quickly as he could, hitting the goblin square in the face before he could even react! The Goblin let out a squeal of pain. He thrust his dagger forward, but by that time the monster had recovered and quickly blocked it with their shield with a hollow ‘thunk!’

Finn ducked as the Goblin swung his mace at his face again. He heard a squeal from behind, and without looking, he cast another Flame Dart behind him hoping that it hit.

It apparently didn’t, because next thing Finn knew, he was tripped down on his back again by another Goblin -this time blue!- who proceeded to whack him hard on the head with their mace along with the green one bashing him in the guts over and over!

“Ow! OW! GET OFF’A ME!” Finn yelled, kicking the olive Goblin away. The navy one then proceeded to thwack his weapon right across Finn’s face! There was a ‘CRACK!’ and Finn screamed and clutched his nose! He jumped to his feet and, letting go of his heavily bleeding nose, cast a Flame Dart at Bluey, who managed to block it with his shield... for all the fat good it did, because it made of wood and burnt to ash within a few seconds. Finn then jumped onto Bluey and slashed away with his dagger. Bluey struggled under Finn’s grip, and squealed for help!

There came the rustles of the nearby bushes with angry snorts all around, and Finn found himself surrounded!

Gee, Finn thought. This sure looks familiar! Bluey noticed Finn was distracted and kicked him off again. Finn grunted and managed to roll and get back on his feet, and Bluey did the same with a growl and a snort.

With a twirl and point of his club at their adversary, the Goblins all rushed at the young Mage in a flurry of blue and green.

Finn stabbed and sliced his dagger all around, knocking a few of the creatures down for the count. His hands lit up with Flame Darts and he threw them everywhere as quickly as he could, but as soon as he’d gotten a couple down in the dirt, two more took their place ever stronger!
