@ Gavin,

My Mother is, thankfully, still alive - besides which, I'm sure she wouldn't want to return to the Earthly Plane, resurrected or reincarnated or incorporeal state. Been there, done that, move on to the next level of existence. As for the Gothic friendship, not sure what a G-Type is, and Goths are continually fatalistic so they wouldn't make good conversation. If it's nothing I can't (and should) earn for myself, then I've no wishes to be granted.

You do realise I was describing a story idea right?

@ Gavin. No, I didn't. Good luck in transferring your concepts to an adventure, look forward to reading it. And my ideals still stand.

The friendship of a goth metal band I invented would seem an odd price for a soul in real life.

I might change their name to R Type though.

I wouldn't want to give my soul for the friendship of any band. It's a waste of time pursuing friendship if it's not freely given. Hopefully, people should just click, that's it. If not, then move on. I watch these films and it's cringe-worthy the protagonist does all they can to join some kind of 'exclusive social club' - Jocks or spoilt rich kids - looking down their nose at everyone else. And I don't believe in all that 'love at first sight' nonsense. at first sight, yes.

One interesting scene was in 'Rebel Without a Cause'. During a 'Taurus the Bull' scene in the planetarium, Jim Stark (James Dean) portrayed a hopeful, playful grin, then a deflated disappointment, finally ending with a shrug when realizing the high school gang didn't take to his humour. They were at first shocked by his spontaneous bull's bellow, then muttered a few insults to the newcomer. As the film progresses, it becomes clear that Jim's earlier attempt to socialize was somewhat misplaced and his association with troubled loner 'Plato' proved more sensible. This was the first teen angst, coming-of-age movie of its kind, where youngsters struggle to find their place in life.

To quote time immemorial however, there wouldn't be a film then. Ie without the protagonist having some contrived reason to sell their soul, I have no book.

You've got to get used to this, Tammy. In a room full of single males, none of whom have respectable mating prospects, the mention of anything remotely female, with two legs and no feathers, tends to send all sorts of long-forgotten glands and organs into overdrive......

I really have a thing for Philippa Warr's writing and she has a cute face! Pip is the Deputy Editor of PC Gamer.

Just wondering if anybody has read The Port of Peril of The Gates of Death yet? If so, what did you think of them?

Gavin
Tue May 1 03:34:00 2018
I read the Port of Peril. It was crap, like one of those ultra simplistic outings like You Can Be The Stainless Steel Rat or Golem of Brick Lane, illusions of choices, railroaded at every place. Also while Blood of the Zombies might possibly have been, I doubt it was written by Livingstone either. The artwork has been justifiably universally vilified.I hold out marginally more hope for Gates of Death.

The artwork in The Gates of Death is by the same artist. I've got the gamebooks but haven't read them yet.

Somebody once asked me whether I likened life to the game of chess. I considered it, then replied that in many ways, yes - but often the rules are bent, or ignored completely, they may apply to certain pieces, while others they don't. Some pieces are affected by the fate of other pieces. Some are related to others in the enemy camp. Finally, I concluded, I don't see life in black and white, but largely a grey area claimed by most pieces. Some black or white pieces have been grey at some point, while many pieces from either side will likely experience a grey period in their lives. I often consider the grey area of life where nothing is certain, where people determine their own fate, and often - rightly or wrongly - loyalty to the rules, a system, or a faction, bears a fickle value.

Like blackholes in the universe, eventually they shall consume it, and, as a phoenix, the universe shall be reborn. It's happened before. Out of the ashes.

All he did was shrug and said: "It's too late. Much too late. Even if all the marbles are in place, well, too late I'm afraid." Then he listened to Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well Part 2'.

Zanbar Bone - that's an idea - a gamebook based around a Bloodbowl/Football mashup.

Just waiting for the Chequered Flag to sweep across the oil-slick track....well isn't it grand to be playing to the stand....

Got a comfortable position, with my cottage in the clouds...the best place for me to be...Easy we come, Easy we go...

No I won't rock the boat, because I'm One of the Millions...of helpless people.
