Hello gang! I realize I've been absent via the RM scene as I've gone between jobs and other things the last few months, but I haven't forgotten you guys. I wrote this poem awhile back. It's a parody of The Night Before Christmas, and deals with government politics and presidential elections. It's a satire, but is not meant to offend or advocate for any one particular side over another. So please enjoy. The Night Before Election â€˜Twas the night before Election, and all throâ€™ the House, The Demos were out clubbing, and the Repos all plowed; The stations were set with little to no care, For the votes that would soon be gathered there; The voters were content with the promise of lies, While hopes for the future continued to die, And Big Chief himself, looking kind of glum, Settled his brain for what was to come- When out of the blue there arose such a clatter, Why itâ€™s the Ghost of Presidential Future The Evil Mad Hatter. Away with our dreams, it went with a flash, Tore open our hopes, and demanded our cash. The goon was abreast, out and in full, Requesting the blood of hard-workers and all; It waved its hands so that what may appear, Taxes and exemptions for the following year; With a do-nothing Congress full of dimwits, I knew in a moment it wasnâ€™t St. Nick. More rabid than feeble, his customers came, And he whistled, and shouted, and callâ€™d them all lame: â€œMore taxes! More fees! Our voters are now dumber. â€œFirst Clinton, and then George, and finally Obummer! â€œIn God we trust, all others pay cash! â€œSo pay you minions, with the new health tax!â€ As trash in the wind is certain to fly, They shoved the ACA without batting an eye; And up through the House, the bill was pushed, And any who contested were all told to shush. And then in a twinkling, I heard on the news The Repos were all laughing while cooking their goose; The Demos all failed, â€˜tis sad but â€˜tis true, But the Repos are still bumbling while guzzling the booze. The Hatter was dressâ€™d in colors of gay, While the Repos still shouted â€œTrue marriage shall stay!â€ Out of the sack, I saw a portion Of a Repo bill that banned all abortion The Hatterâ€™s eyes gleamed, cold as a rock, This was the one that would replace Old Barack. His droll little mouth was drawn up in sneer, As he shouted the grand tidings of a miserable New Year! He whistled and grinned, and showed all his teeth, And heralded in Americaâ€™s defeat. He clapped his hands and blew out some smoke And laughed when he told us our systemâ€™s a joke; A Hatter, a troll, or even a snake, A Demo or Repo, itâ€™s all just the same; A promise of lies, a twist of their words, We soon must decide the lesser of turds. They promise recovery and plenty of work, But the rich get richer and the poor are still poor; Our freedom, our rights, the whole Constitution, They thumb their noses and call it superstition. More laws and more secrets, a change we can believe As long as weâ€™re willing our rights to relieve. A Demo or Repo, such is our blight- We welcomed the change without even a fight.
This game is under renovation
Palladinthug posted a topic in Archived Games -Projects that have been inactive for 12 months are stored here.Silver Town will be a non commercial game. It started as an adaptation of a home brew Dungeons and Dragons campaign using RPG Maker VX/Ace, and quickly grew into it's own story. Genre: RPG, Fantasy, Comedic, Parody Game Download Link: Quick Fixes have been made. The first dungeon's monsters have been revamped. To accommodate returning players a save file has been prepared with all the introduction materials completed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByuTxMPbRZgjNDNkcXU5UVNlbFk/edit?usp=sharing Several 'Quick Fixes' were made. Some spells are now instant. Town and Druid Circle Graphics were implemented. The first dungeon was revamped with the new battle changes. Future dungeons and bosses are being worked on now. Evolving main character with multiple sprites! Watch Emmet grow with the story. New! Universal Damage\Healing Calculator with Colored Type for all skills Custom Stained Glass windows with Divine Light Overlay tiles Classic DnD Items and charge system for magical items done with common events. Breaking the fourth wall, relax it's a game. FREE 3-6 hours of game play of a stand alone story The completed game will be non-encrypted. If you choose to play this game I want it to be like Crysalis so you can take everything you can from it. My experience, enjoyment, and anything you find of value. A working lighthouse with a world map event graphic that shows a moving light beam, (once it is activated in the plot). Spiral Staircases and various other unique resources. Efficient use of eventing with NPCs, bookcases, and normal mundane items which allow the characters to be more direct to the player and show personality. (Example: a Bookcase which functions off of a variable and contains multiple books that can be cycled or randomized to show a wide breath of information rather than fit the trope of one book per bookcase. Another Example: NPCs that behave dynamically with the plot and decisions.) Pleasant puzzles which do not detract or grind the game to a halt. All the puzzles will be alterable and available to you the player for your own non commercial games. Custom anthropomorphic portraits which are available for your own non-commercial productions. There was a severe lack of them wherever I looked, and I'd like to fill that void for the existing sprites on the readily available lists. Example: Emmet's completed Emo sheet Concept Work: Demon King's Portrait Example: A small, and simple world that doesn't impose anything on the player. No big unpronounceable names, no outlandish intolerable dialogue, and no getting hopelessly frustrated with the plot. We want to provide a simple and fun game.

Comedy Guide When I took theatre, my teacher said that comedy was the hardest genre to write. I have to agree with him on that. Not only is writing comedy one of my weakest areas in writing, but there is such a thin line you can walk with it. This guide is mainly what my teacher taught me, but please be aware that I'm not the best when it comes to comedy writing. One good feature of good comedy is intelligence and wit. This can be very difficult to accomplish, which is one of the reasons why most modern comedies use "dumb" characters and slapstick jokes. Does this mean that those comedies are bad? Of course not! But there does need to be a moderation of how much of it you use because the audience/player can get irritated or annoyed. This is the thin line I was talking about. You want to make the player laugh or at least smile, but you do not want to get to the point of being annoying, unless you have a scene that requires the player to feel a short term irritation in order to follow through with the joke. One of the more difficult parts of comedy is what is a joke and what is offensive. My teacher gave a heavy warning to not rely on stereotypes for humor since it's a cheap way to try to get laughs. However, I see it as a bit of a gamble instead of being a "cheap" way to get laughs. There is a better change of someone getting upset instead of laughing. So, how do we get the best laughs? The answer is through characters and surroundings. With the characters, the better developed they are, the better the humor can play off them. If you have the humor compliment the personality of the character, then the humor will come off natural. One way to do this is to have two characters with contrasting personalities try to get through an event. Or, even more simple, have a conversation. What you're aiming for is to have both characters well developed enough that they have chemistry in order to carry the scene and the joke. You can also use your surroundings as a way to make humor. If a character is in a strange surrounding and out of their element, this can set up for some humor depending on how you play it out. You can use actions or even the character talking to one's self as a way to further express the humor. One thing you need to watch out for is how far you take a joke with two characters. It's a very thin line from going to something being funny to being very spiteful. This can cause problems if the audience, instead of laughing, feels sympathetic towards the victim of the joke and see it in poor taste. There are comedies that can pull off violence in comedy. If you do want to use violence as comedy, the best advice I can give on that is to make it as over the top as you can. With parodies, the one important thing is to know the original source well. It's also important to research the original source material to understand the environment and characters. To get a good idea of a good parody, I would suggest Young Frankenstein. I hope this guide helps a little bit, and I'm sorry if it's not as detailed as my other one. Comedy is my weakest genre in writing, so if you do have more questions, I can try to find some links on comedy writing to help you out.
