Hey, I was thinking there should be a new forum (like the Off Topic forum, not like SWVII to SWVIII forum) dedicated to short stories/ poems. If you look at off-topic, you can often find one every week or two. And before you say the assesment room, I'm talking about stories that don't relate to star wars at all necesarilly, but it gives people who want some practice at writing but aren't in the mood for sci-fi an outlet where people can see/critisize.

Ronald Spiers: I bet if you went back two thousand years, you'd hear a couple centurions standing around yakking about how Tertius lopped off the heads of some Carthaginian prisoners.

Carwood Lipton: Well, maybe they kept talking about it because they never heard Tertius deny it.

Ronald Spiers: Maybe that's because Tertius knew there was some value to the men thinking he was the meanest, toughest sonofabitch in the whole Roman Legion.

Yes. That would be welcome. I need a more creative outlet other than writing about blowing things up. :P

Plus a mini-RPG section like SWVII had.

The mini-RPG forum I can see. But a fan fic/short story forum I'm not so sure about. I'm not sure it generates enough traffic to warrant its own forum.

So make it a mini-RPG/fan fiction/short story forum.

But they're not really related. I personally wouldn't put them all into one category. Now, if we get enough interest, I could see a Fan Works forum where we could put stories, art, homemade music, movies etc.

I concur, a Fan Fic/Art/Music/etc forum. So... a Fan Corner I suppose it'd be called.

But since this is a SW site, it should have a strong SW emphasis, IMO.

Yes, this is a SW site, but if you have one forum for quickie short stories and such, how does that change what its about?

Just wait till my next two things are done. Then I'll really be taking from other sci-fi stuff.

Wait a minute, you counted Bond.

Ams, Ams, Ams. Havn't we already established that you arn't Bond?

His character and much of his background etc were taken from Bond. Whether he is or not is irrelevent, the fact remains that the character is based on non-SW material.
