The official kindofdoon fanclub headquarters!
« on: September 20, 2010, 09:12:03 PM »
So, I've made this thread for two main reasons: Back in the day on these forums, there used to be entire threads dedicated to a single forum member. Unfortunately, such threads are hardly around anymore. If I'm correct, I believe Deloria is one of the only members to have her own thread in these new forums. So I thought I'd bring back the tradition. The only rule I remember existing for these types of threads is that you can't make a thread for yourself. The thread must be created by another forum member.

The second reason I am creating this thread is because, in reality, we all <3 doon! Don't even try to deny it!

So this thread is for the fan-club of doon to commune and discuss anything doon related. This is basically your own thread. You make the rules here (within reason of course.) So far as I'm concerned, off-topicness in this thread is perfectly allowed. Now, I can't speak for my fellow Mods (in fact, I haven't even consulted them about this... I'm making this thread because I feel like it lol) but I don't think they'd have an issue with that. If they do, they'll let you know. Or yell at me. I'm really not sure which. So, without further ado, doon (and your adoring fan club), this is your thread! Make the best possible use of it!  :P

WOAH! This all happened so fast! I'm really honored!

Now, DD, I recall that you were supposed to bring the three magic treasures back to headquarters...do you have them?

As for rules, well, there are none (aside from the forum rules, obviously). This thread shall be used for completely open discussion.

And so Doon spake, and so it was.

^ That's not a typo. "Spake" is an antiquated past participle of "to speak".

You should be honored. Frankly, I think you deserve it. I've come to respect you a lot on the forums. I envy you in some respects for your superior photoshop skills and your clear superiority to me in modding textures...

CRAP! um... Isn't the fact that I made this thread enough for you? *gets ready to activate mod powers* Can't I just be inducted into your fan club automatically...? You do realize I hold the mod powers here... (Yes, I am disobeying a sacred oath I took upon my liege, Cesar Bittar's sword, when I became a mod to never abuse my powers... XB)

As for rules, well, there are none (aside from the forum rules, obviously). This thread shall be used for completely open discussion.

And so Doon spake, and so it was.

^ That's not a typo. "Spake" is an antiquated past participle of "to speak".

I'm going to have to get back to you on this part. I don't believe my fellow mods will have an issue with this, but I just want to be sure of that... If any one of them can reply to this thread with the official ok, that'd be great... Otherwise, I'm ready for my punishment... XD j/k

I can't speak (or type) a lie. Ok, so I can, but in this case I'm not. I truly believe you are one of the rising members here on the forum... You've contributed a lot of positive energy here, and these forums have needed that as of late. I should probably stop with all the comments now and let this thread resume normally lol...

Naw, don't stop, I'm sure you're making him blush!

SSSSSSHHHHH!   I wanna see what these three treasures are first!

GASP! Have you played KQI?!
LOL, of course!  I just wanted to see if he'd bring me something purrty, like a tiara or a unicorn. :yes:

Actually, yes. I'm really honored to read that, and appreciate it very much, more than I can say.

Now, if this thread gets the green light from the admins, we'll be needing those three magic treasures... ;D

If only Weldon can come in and just give it the official seal of approval. I don't anticipate any problems... I'd say just go ahead...

As for the magic treasures... Um... Would you believe that I hid them in a VERY secure location, but that I forgot where that location was? If you don't believe that, I'm sorry I don't have the treasures for you...

Now that I have the KQ Collection and Companion, I'm going ahead with a 1-7 playthrough. Perhaps then I will be able to locate the three magic treasures and garrison them inside our headquarters, granting us prosperity and a +1000 gold bonus.

That gold bonus is always a good idea. Daventry has prospered for years with it...

Would you ever consider doing a youtube playthrough series of the games, complete with your fancy editing skills? (I've seen your entry for the TSL comedy contest. Impressive editing I must say. I was in fact one of the judges...)

You mean an LP, with commentary? I'm no good at doing that - I prefer to play silently.

Thank you for your praise about my video - I did spend a good while working on it, and I'm glad to see that you noticed.

How do you envision video editing skills coming in handy for a playthrough? Usually, you just play straight through and post the footage, with no editing involved.

I always wanted to do an LP. I just don't have the technical know-how to set one up.  :-\

I know, but it'd be interesting to see you tackle a different kind of playthrough. For the most part, they're all the same thing. I'd like some kind of variety in my playthroughs. Something that would set you apart from everyone else, whatever that may be. But perhaps that's just me.

BTW, may I ask what LP stands for?

As for filming stuff, you can download a program called CamStudio which records video from your computer, and you can set it up to record sound from the computer too. Best of all? It's FREE!

LP = Let's Play.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

LP stands for "Let's Play".

A unique playthrough...I will give this some thought. I've been thinking about beating KQI, writing down all the steps to get points, and then finding the shortest route possible to beat it, like I did with my Episode 2 walkthough. I could try recording that...Would you be interested in watching something like that?

And I'm all set on screen recording software - I've been recording my video games since 2006!

Thanks, Waltz! Also, how should I call you? (I remember reading that your name is Arienne, or something like that. Is that remotely accurate?)
