Writer Discussion Table
« on: August 18, 2010, 05:01:17 PM »
Ugh, writers block.

Plus, no one to discuss anything with. Also, wild ideas + half baked concepts = real annoyance.

So I was hoping we could have a sort of writer's Chit Chat Topic. To throw around ideas, break each other's blocks and plot for events in the writing commune on MR in general.


I'll start with what's bugging me: Who know's a good manga horror-action tale?

Yeah... werewolfs... i actually thought of adding a lot in one. But i'm leaning towards more helpless horrors (everyone knows how to gank a werewolf)

@ Coryn how good is it? I'm googling it now but have you read it? What were your impressions?

How about a story where creatures attack people at night? They can even be in the safety of their home when it happens. Something like monsters killing, new reports but no evidence on the mysterious murders, some guy or girl witnesses one and gets out of it alive, they try to find the monsters cause they're stupid and they only bring a baseball bat or something, blah blah, horror scenes, create party>invite player, story.

So long as it isn't too freaky

@ Coryn that sounds promising

@ Litt that sounds interesting. Of course it would only work out in an enclosed space. You get the horror requirement of attacking beasts with useless weapons, eh?  Baseball bat... hmmm... I'm sure i can find some japanese god which raids homes or somethin...

@Socks: Wait, I never watched Paranormal Activity either...that's what it was about? Good thing I chose not to follow trend.

@Lego: So you wanna use Yokai? Well I'm gonna have to think up an entirely new idea for that. I'll get on that in a bit, some business to attend to.

Resident evil is definately the right genre. I discovered that later when i could handle the freakyness. Capcom outdoes itself with horror.

This Higurahi no Naku Koro Ni thing is good...

So many ideas...

Oh no its seems like your soon going to idea overload and I don't think you should deal with zombies but keeping people on the edge with your story like they did with that game :D

Well... zombie is a little too public. I like the unseen horror. More spirit like... But i could just make the zombies risen by an evil spirit...

So what type of zombie. Fast or Slow?
