Open Source: Sargasso, The Ever-Changing City
If you are or were a writer, have you ever had plans to write a story that hasn't got off the ground?
Have you planned many things for it and wrote those ideas down, such as the setting, characters, magical/technological macguffins & plot devices that are needed for the plot to move forward?
Have you ever have gotten to a point where you look at one or more of your ideas and go, "This won't work" and decided to scrap it?
Or have you ever just looked at the whole project after so much time and decided to scrap it entirely?
Well, I think I have something that writers could use, if only so that their old ideas don't go to waste.
Picture if you will: A continent made from a hodgepodge of vastly different locations from all across time, space and the entirety of the Multiverse, like someone used hundreds of vastly different model location sets and put them all together into a massive collage.
And imagine this continent ontop an almost infinite sea of
Open Source Idea: TulpaverseWhile I was lurking around Tumblr for s***ts and giggles, I read a post about Jojo's Bizarre Adventure that said quote, "what's a jojo? From what i understand it's about people who summon fursonas to fight for them" unquote.
Which, to be fair, isn't exactly wrong. But you can also say that to describe games like the Persona series, which also involved characters summoning manifestations of their inner mind or soul. And for some reason, what that person wrote got me thinking about the Tulpa.
If your confused as to what the hell a tulpa is, let me explain. A tulpa is a creature given physical form from its creator's thoughts by an exercise of will. The idea derives mostly from Tibetan Buddhism and is cited most explicitly in the works of the French mystic Alexandra David-Neel. Essentially, since Buddhism holds that the material world is an illusion created by the mind it should be possible for a sufficiently lucid mind to insert anything it chooses int
PD Trademark Name GameHere is a list of PD heroes that are legally in the Public Domain. Some of them are ones that DC and Marvel already use, but there are some of their characters that just have the same name as the PD character. This list came from a topic on the Free verse Forum about what names to use for projects that involve PD characters, with a few of my own additions. This list is for those who want to do these characters for either a project for fun or one for a commercial product, but don't want to risk getting the C&D sledgehammer down on your kneecaps.

Daredevil: Diadebul, Dangerdevil, The Dauntless Devil, Double-Back, Devil-May-Care, Devil-May-Dare, Daredevil Jack, Stuntdevil, Boomerdevil, Daredemon, Stunt Satan Razz, DevilDare, Devil Daring

If you have any points that you could spare, please donate one or more. I'm trying to get enough points to pay for commissions to be done and I think 5000 would be a good amount.
A little. I was in a pretty serious creative funk for a couple weeks but luckily I've been getting back in the groove of things.
It's slow, but at least I'm still being a bit productive instead of just stewing in the funk.
Here's what I got lined up so far:
I just need to fully flesh-out their backstories before I can officially submit them.
