Question about a continuous salty tale

Postby Detective TurtleHolmes on Wed Oct 17, 2007 3:26 am

Just a few questions. I didn't want to disrupt the story.
Firstly, is anyone going to go through all the pages of the story and put it all into a book?
Secondly, what happens if two people accidentally continue a line at the same time? Would that destroy the entire thing?

Thanks.

If they are, I wouldn't let them near anything sharp.

Either we start a fight, or the next person decides which one to run with.

As Pirates and gentlemen we resolve things aimicably over a glass of Rum. Except Black Bart of course we give him a good kicking.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

YArrrr...

The story can change quite quickly, so if it ever was compiled, it would be instantly renamed 'The Continuously Uncohesive Plotline. '

ARR-oha Pastaciple Mitch..if you wanna read the whole tome, you'd do well to skip any posts with "blancmange" in them..& keeping a running list of characters wouldn't be a bad idea..of course, the easy way is to post your own contribution....AARRGGHH!! :worship: :pirate_fish:

I was thinking of compiling the whole lot, and i would continue adding on sections. I haven't read the whole thing, but i was possibly going to spend some time during weekends and holidays putting it into a .doc file.
Come to speak of it, maybe five people or so could do 20 pages each until the bulk of the thing is gone, then I, or somebody else, could simply add the new posts as they came along.

It could be a good idea. Is there anybody who would be interested?

Avast Mr Pastaciple,

Don't ye have any hobbies man? I be thinkin something involvin' fresh air and wenches might be a more valuable use of your time.

But, arrrgh matey, don't let me discourage so courageous-soundin' an enterprise as tryin' to make some sense out of the Salty Tale.

I am far from uncertain there be a technical minded moderator type (ahoy Captin Dave!) who could download the thing for ye if ye were not able to be disuaded from so foolhardy a project and save yeself a bit of RSI from all that cuttin' and pastin'.

But, there's others who can no doubt suggest more amusin' ways to contract the dreaded carple tunnel sityation disease.

Yours

Aaarrrrgggh!

Honestly, I don't have any hobbies. I don't get out much. In fact, you could describe me as an introvert.

But I will still sort of persevere to get a few more people to help. after all, whats a bit o' carpal tunnel amongst friends?

RAAAAAAAAARRGGGHHMEN!

Arrrgh...well done matey...it be the greatest literary task since Homer wrote down the Iliad. Achilles had his sword to Homer's throat the whole time mind you, but it turned out great.

Perhaps ye could call it: The Continuous Salty Tale: The Wrath of Cap'n Potatoneck.

Well, I am sort of writing a novella at the moment, and I believe that with a little straightening out, it could be accomplished.
