Perhaps law instead?

Actually, think of what morale is. Law is based on the "right or wrong"-view of the bible (Or the current religions scripth.). Drinking yourself is moraly wrong meaning that it is something wrong so you shouldn't do that. I don't post things as that without giving it a decent think-through.

Now that you mention it... Making a proper introduction is the best way to take contact with people but this is fine too. If you have problems being new to this forum, just remind us about it. (Geez, I already sound like I am an oldie on this forum... :rolleyes: )

The pulse drop was caused by a physical or maybe psychical reaction from my body due to the blood loss but it wasn't the blood loss that caused it in its self. The wound can't be stitched since it's not deep but it was very vide and large. The wound wasn't critical but it is a wound of a type that is very painful and takes months, maybe even years to recover fully from. Any other questions?

The characters properties do affect the story a lot. But whether you use the theme to come up with a story, use the characters personalities to write the story or use the story and theme to estimate the characters, you still have to keep those components in your mind or else your story will end up all messed up. So remember, keep it in your mind. I also said that those rules are for comics as well.

The plot is all the three components together in a rough image. So when the plot is finished, you actually have a overviewable rough image of a potentially good story.

The rules I have posted here are only there to help you write a good story. Don't ignore them, consider them.

I added my latest short story today in http://www.eagleworld.tk/ . It is named "When questions remains..." and is about a suicide thinking man who search the meaning with life and then walks into the darkness of this world.

I don't like having an "Apprentice" under my name. I would much rather have "The author soul" under it. Is it possible that I may have that title?

There's three step to make a good novel or comic:

First step - Character

Come up with a character or more first. Decide what personality they will have. Decide what weakness and strengths they have. Give them some personal matters, for example: A boy who hit peoples when he laugh or a girl who pass out when being embarrased.

Second step - Theme

Decided what theme you want the characters to resolve to. In your story you have decided to have the strive of immortality as a theme. Picture the characters fighting for something, strive for something and other things in this matter.

Third and last step - Story

Put the characters into a situation with a theme that connects with them. Write the story from the picture you have of the characters in the situation.

Just to add:

Always remember the 5 W and the one H:
Who (Who are the characters?)
What (What are they doing?)
When
Where
Why (Why they got into the situation)
How (How did they end up in this situation)

Keep all this in mind and you will find that writing a novel or a comic is actually not so difficult.

Loophole in unregistered in Blades of Exile

I found a loophole in Blades of Exile Scenario Editor. I can't use new levels nor add new cities to the demo scenario but I can edit it. I can add own characters, add extra scenarios too the already existing rooms. So think of one town, I can delete all the people in there like in greenvile and then make a whole castle or cavern there with lots of enemies and such. This way I can, though with lots of work, create my own scenario without registering. (It's not that I don't want to pay for registering, it's that I don't want to send money through the post. :o )

Where are you from sonny? I'm a 15-years old young man from sweden. My english is only that well thanks to loads of practice and studies. Last month I learned 75 new words. That's a lot for self-studies. The trick is:
Write with word, press grammar-check and be sure you have checked the option "Grammar and style". This will not only help you with grammar but also help you with things like fragmental, cryptical or poorly composed sentences.

-Eagle, practicing all the time ;)

Some of you might have wondered why I call myself the "Author soul". Well, I am an author on my spare-time. So, you might ask what I have written. Well, I am writing on a novel called "Under Control" about a man with unnatural amount of ESP, meaning he can tell the future with 99,99% accuracy. His friends ask him one day why he doesn't use his abilities for good, and that's when drama and action starts.

I have written some short stories and a few poems too. You can read them on http://www.eagleworld.tk/ . Feel free to comment about them here or send me an e-mail about it.

Yesterday I was going to shop in the town with a friend (One of the things I was going to shop was a new mic.). In order to get there before the shops closed, we had to bicycle in high velocity. In one curve I drove in 30km/h when I suddenly lost all grip, I had driven on a spot of sand. At that I lost all grip, my bicycle throwed me off, forward. I hit the pebble filled ground with right underarm first and it got all ripped up like someone had been scratchin me multiple times with a sandpaper. Also I received black open bruises on my hands due to pebbles on the ground and I scratched my left elbow and my right knee. The right arm was bleeding so much that I almost lost all my pulse (Blood sugar downfall, I get that when I lose blood.), I became weak, couldn't stand up and I had to lay down on the grass beside the narrow street. My friend got all nervous since I became so pale and weak (It looked for him like I was dying.). I asked him to look on my elbow since I had so much pain in it. He said it was bleeding like crazy. We had to get medical help so I asked him to call his mother who had experience in First Aid since she was in the slovanian civil-war 1992 (Or something, I haven't read much about that war yet.). She came after ten minutes waiting. She took my arm and cleaned it and put a gauze bandage on it. Then she drove home where I had all my other non-bleeding painful injuries cleaned and disinfected. It all ended up fine thanks to my friend's mother's patriotism, I have to give her a flower later. Note, the crash was in really high velocity and therefore looked really scary.

-Eagle,

P.S. The only positive I can find in this is that I have learned how it feels to jump off a train... No, it is that I have shown a decent piece of inner strength since I didn't fight back at all when she clean the wound even though it was really painful.

I had this nightmare once about I, my brother and my father went to see a film, but I didn't want to see it, so I went upstairs to a room that looked like a disorganized condo. I went into a room where I sat down and started playing gameboy when a man came in. He stared at me while I was into playing the gameboy. Suddenly I heard a click and I looked up at the man and he was aiming a gun towards me. I immediately jumped off the stool I was sitting on and runned for the bedroom that was strangely located in the entrance. The man tried to shoot me but I took cover beneath the bed, that was strangely located in the center of the room, and he missed. He aimed again and missed. I then runned for the stairs leading down to safety. At my first step down on it he shot and hitted me. The next moment I just saw blood running slowly down the stairs in a third person, frog-view. At that point I woke up all flushed and sweaty.

Strange how well I can remember my one and only nightmare. Probably I remember it so well because it was so terrifying horrible. But in general I remember most of my more interesting dreams like my "first" dream that I had when I was 5 and thought I was new born because I felt so empty in my head. At breakfast I asked my mom if I was born 5 years old. She then rolled at the floor laughing.

Ain't it strange that I can remember so much strange things? Well, it's not bad, in fact it's amusing to tell all these things. :D

-Eagle, the crazy author

P.S. I had that nightmare when I was 9, six years ago and obviously that "first" dream was from when I was five, 10 years ago. :cool:

It's the custom to introduce yourself, it has been this way in all cultures in all time. Without a proper introduction, you may seem like a possible threat so think about that next time you meet someone new. This applies to animals and pets too.

As I said before, have a nice day or evening! :)

There are a wookie army in the latest film?! MY, now I just HAVE to see it!

EDIT: From an interview with George Lucas I heard episode III will be entirely in digital. Both episode I and II had computer made scenes, though in the first episode the characters were heavily zoomed out to cover the low graphic quality (It was the best possible graphic at that time.) like in the scene where Ben Kenobi fights that red-faced guy.

My first post was in "Hello lads and ladies" which I posted for 5 minutes ago and this is my second. I don't really have any idea why I am posting but I can excuse myself and tell you that I'm just a wiseguy who likes typing and smileies. But that's just well since I am an author. :P Well, I probably just accidently put a live crayfish in my head instead of a brain. :D

Greetings, my name is Fredrik "Eagle" Larsson and I'm new to this forum. Since I were to check if they finally had made the new remake of "Blades of Exile" I decided to check the forum while I was at it. Hope I can learn something here or maybe teach something. Anyway, I'm not new to spiderweb software though, no, I have played the exile series in 2 years (Due to me being so mean, I have never registered any of the games I downloaded but it went fine anyway. :D ) and when I visited the spider-website for the first time (I got all the games through game CD:s with freeware and shareware.) I downloaded the Avernum games that to my enjoy was some really good remakes of my old favorites.

Have a dazzling nice day or a nice cozy evening with a book and most important, be happy! -Eagle, the author soul
