why must my mac run art programs so beautifully but run games like ass and my pc run games so beautifully but run art programs like ass
that is literally the largest blockade on my modding project because it means hopping between machines and I hate doing that orz
Drinks strong coffee and writes myself another to-do list for the metaroom project
how dare I have inspiration for more projects when I haven’t even finished the ones I have going already
a temporary header for the creatures blog I’m screwing around on with a bro! I like it a lot even though it was really quickly done so I thought I’d put it up somewhere by itself.
The rocket flares are white so you can’t see some of them on the white dash bg unless you full view.
have you ever just found a character from something that you like and suddenly realised you wanna make them SUFFER
for the record do NOT spend an entire day running just on strong coffee you will bugger your everything
A big thanks to Welastrolls for finding the quote I was referencing for that earlier ask about 6-6 names!
Basically yeah, this is what we’ve been going on for Trolldown 2. If you’ve got yourself a lusus and you’re part of troll society, this is likely how your name would work.
Not that every single person needs to always follow the same rules in the fandom (that would be boring probably<3), but for trolldown we’ve been trying to create a general overall feel and atmosphere that’s very trollish and imperial, so this is what we’re going with!
Why is the 6-lettered names so important for trolls in Trolldown 2? That concept of 6-lettered name is just something for the trolls in the the story of Homestuck itself, just like the kids in there who has 4 lettered names, for the sake of simplifying it all. Just because those kids have 4-lettered names doesn't mean EVERY HUMAN BEING have 4-lettered names. I'm sure that applies to trolls too. And if I recall, in other fantroll OCTs, there were trolls with names that are not 6 letters long.
Hussie straight up said somewhere out there in the mess of formspring archives and other stuff that when a troll is picked by their lusus, whatever random garble it gives them as a name is recorded in the closest 6 6 letter format.
(I’ll have to dig around and find this I’m sure unless someone else has it on hand)
but BASICALLY if you have a troll who was laid in the caverns, went through the trials, was chosen by a lusus and built a hive with the carpenter drones AKA a normal troll, their given name would be 6 letters by 6 letters just because that is the alternian system. That doesn’t mean they can’t have nicknames or adult titles or what have you, but for the sake of a tournament that abides by the idea of the alternian hemospectrum/fleet/rules/ect, they’re going to want your troll’s birth name or registered name for their contestant registers.
And honestly? There’s SO FEW rules that people have to abide by to make a fan troll, people don’t even necessarily have to pay attention to the hemospectrum, I can’t fathom why anyone would particularly want to break the rules THAT much?
The tournament as a whole is pretty lenient, more so even than the first trolldown was! But everything has it’s rules, and it just so happens that the judges got together and decided that actually if people are gonna make a point to break 6 6 format we better put that in the rules like we considered in the first place.
This is so much more dramatic looking than it needs to be OTL
It was fun though! Master Shee looking out at the plane of Sphericus? (with a companion<3)
