Title: The official kindofdoon fanclub headquarters!
Post by: dark-daventry 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)

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 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 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!

Yeah, my name is Adrienne. What ever you want to call me is fine. I worked my 10 year old charge's birthday party and all the girls called me Andi. It is up to you, you can come up with another nick name if you like.
Title: Re: The official kindofdoon fanclub headquarters!
Post by: dark-daventry on September 20, 2010, 11:13:45 PM
Yeah, I've got about 11 nicknames in real life and counting. The most common one I get is by far Harry Potter. Apparently, I look like him. I know on the forums I was officially given the name DD by someone, but I can't remember who (I want to say it was Deloria, but I'm not sure.) I know they were discussing various nick-names or abbreviations for me. One was Dark-Dav. But I think DD works pretty well too.

Alright. I'll start it this weekend.

Awesome! I can't wait to see it!
Title: Re: The official kindofdoon fanclub headquarters!

I can see how you could get called Harry Potter. There is a resemblance, but you will always be Dark-Daventry to me.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi; I'm relatively new here but Kindofdoon is definitely one of the most prolific and positive members here and I wanted to make my appreciation known  ;)

If I'm correct, I believe Deloria is one of the only members to have her own thread in these new forums.
True. Sadly, her thread has not had much activity recently  :( Not enough people like grammar, architecture, antique languages and spekynge in Middel Englysh.  :(

Did you used to have a profile pic in the Fannatic section?  If so, then I totally thought that you looked like Harry Potter when I saw you!  (If not, then there's another former Fannatic that looks a lot like Harry. :P)

And speaking of which, WHY ARE THERE NO FANNATICS ANYMORE?!  I never got to be one, I was so bummed!  Katie, can we do something about that...?
Title: Re: The official kindofdoon fanclub headquarters!
Post by: tessspoon on September 21, 2010, 12:23:52 PM
Not really missing out on much, no one ever posts in the Fannatics board, even. :P

But yeah, bringing that whole thing back would be pretty cool :D but it doesn't seem like something they're into doing atm.

It is his facebook picture and on skype, that's how I know. It's just the style of his haircut that makes people think of Harry Potter.

Oh trust me, you're known. You're going to have to take my word for that. And I think you having this thread is certainly a testament to that. I think you deserve it!

And haids, yes my photo was on the Fannatics, but it's an outdated photo that was taken when I was visiting London a LONG time ago. I've changed in appearance QUITE a bit. I look a lot different now than I did then (I was also a freshman in high school when it was taken... I'm now a freshman in college...)

Ok, let me think... Um, how about terminator graham? NO, WAIT! Borg Graham! Or, if you can, Sim graham (I imagine getting the green plumbob above his head may be difficult to do... But if you can pull it off, high five!)

I haven't figured out how to actually change or make shapes yet, just textures, sounds, text, and other minor things. It's very difficult, and I have no programs that can handle that sort of thing.

I really like the Borg Graham idea. I also decided that I'm going to be...re-decorating his bedroom. Stay tuned.

I don't know, DD. Supposedly Picard killed her in the 21th century right before the first warp flight but what about Janeway. She killed the borg queen too in Star Trek: Voyager.  

Will the real Borg Queen please stand up?

Couldn't resist the KQ reference.

Cheese Graham kind of looks like he has jaundice and some sort of pox. :P Still, I'm impressed - I wouldn't have a clue how to do that, even with access to the original files. I'm mystified by how they map the 2-D textures onto 3-D models.

The team uses Maya - I think that's what they use for this. There is a personal learning edition, but I don't know if it will do this sort of thing.

DS9 is by far my favorite star trek series. I loved TNG, I really did, but DS9 just resonated so much more with me. I mean, sisko is amazing. I will bow down and obey sisko's every command. I do love him. He is my favorite of all the captains. Besides, he's got the coolest nick name in all of star trek history: The Sisko! I could go on and on about DS9, but I think I'm going to create a thread later on for a more in depth discussion of star trek in general. Stay tuned for said thread later today (I'm typing this message on my iPod touch in finagle a bagel. Not the best location to be typing a long forum response...)

some-year: I have no idea lol

I audited history in 8th grade, which was my first history class ever lol. I am a SPED. But you know, my life is full of irony. For example: All the subjects I'm bad at, my parents taught. I'm terrible at math and history, and my dad taught both in elementary, middle and high school for about 34 years or so. I hate physical activity with a passion. Yet my mom taught physical education for 35 years. Thirty-five years. For elementary school. I'm good at english, but neither of my parents taught that. My brother inherited the smart genes. I inherited the learning disability genes. Thank you, ADH... OH LOOK, A SHINY OBJECT! *Plays with said shiny object and forgets what he was talking about*

In any case, carry on everyone...

You know, I hate PE as a class, but with stuff like EA Sports Active and other at home workout stuff, I find it a lot more fun. XD I think it's fulfilling as an activity, just...not when you're being forced to and have your peers around to laugh at you. :P

I hated PE in school too, however I do a lot of walking around the neighborhood and Dancing with the Stars for the Wii. PE just was the same thing everyday, now you can't even play half the games I did when in elementary school because they might be offensive to some. AKA Dodge Ball. I love Dodge ball.

I too hated PE. But you are right. There was nothing better than chucking a rubber inflated ball at an innocent bystander at 60 miles an hour and watching them tumble over in mild pain. :D

I joined immediately after the second C&D (although I could have sworn I had registered before that), and if the numbers are to be believed, he joined a little before me.

I had been lurking for a couple months before the second C&D. I joined once the second C&D hit but didn't get into the habit of regular posting until July 10 date was announced.

I remember thinking how formidable 500 posts seemed...haha.

Just a note to Doon here:

I need you to listen to me VERY closely.

I cannot take you seriously with your Homestar Runner Avatar. I can't help but to read your posts with Homestar's voice... and well, even when you are being serious in your threads, I find myself chuckling because of the voice in my head.  ;D

If you ever need to make a serious announcement: you may want to temporarily censor homestar... otherwise, it'll just be HILARIOUS to me!  :rofl:  :crazydude:

You know... I do believe media sources that say that people in their teens and twenties are the ones that reject and don't play adventure games are DEAD wrong.

You know... I do believe media sources that say that people in their teens and twenties are the ones that reject and don't play adventure games are DEAD wrong.
I think we may be the exception rather than the rule, though (22, btw). A forum dedicated to adventure games is going to be likely to attract those in the teen-twenty range who do enjoy adventure games, but I would assume that there are more who are into Halo, WoW, Half-Life and games that have high-quality graphics, lots of action and console versions.
Not that there's anything wrong with those games (I love Half-Life and its sequels), but when games that are more action-oriented are the trend, people will tend to follow it. I think this is especially true because people will tend to do what their peers do because it's "cool."
