    Why are all fantasy settings so...cookie cutter?

    Elves are the fast pale noble gloomy ones in trees.

    Dwarves have braided beards, big muscles and are four feet tall.

    I'd like to see a fantasy setting, just once, where the writer isn't riding J. R. R. Tolkien like a rodeo.

    That always leads to the resultant series being an insipid Tuna Salad Sandwich before Lord of the Ring's fearsome Whale Penis Baguette.

    I have high hopes for somethin' Vale's cookin' up, but I may step into the fantasy fray soon to write something.

    I've been thinking of a shape-shifting esper character.

    But first I should neglecting my regular Halo series. >_>

    I like to imagine the dark side of things.

    Fantasy settings are ALWAYS epic good vs epic evil. What about everyday good vs everyday evil?

    I imagine that in a fantasy criminal underworld, female elves would make the best prostitutes. They're beautiful and age incredibly slowly, so they would look youthful for a LONG time.

    I picture ogres as the best bouncers. Humans as the criminal masterminds. Dwarves... Well Dwarves would do what they do best; make weapons.

    I don't know what the hell Hobbits would do. They're too nice. Maybe they'd be pedophiles... Since a fully grown Hobbit is like the size of a teenager...

    They're just smaller humans with big feet.

    They're like the kind of elf that makes cookies. Imagine ten of them furiously making cookies at you! That's a dangerous weapon.

    Manny, it seems to me you're just imagining the present day world in the past. Though that certainly isn't a bad thing. In my opinion, it's about creating your own races and storylines. But I'll read a fantasy novel, even if it's like Lord of the Rings, but it has to have a VERY good storyline for that.

    I never include Hobbits in my stories.

    I was working on something, but I scrapped it because the plot went a little off the rails. Razz

    But, here's a snippit of it that I thought was gold. It's a short gunfight (if you could call it that) between Nine and Death, that led to Death leaving slightly annoyed, and Famine being ordered to step into the fray.

    It's mostly played for laughs, considering Death isn't much of the fighting type, and can't technically die.

    Nine drew his trusty magnum before Death was even aware of his murderous intent.

    Bang bang.

    The bullets hit home at center mass. Death's expression didn't even change, as he stumbled back two steps, then regained his footing.

    "...Yes, John, I REALLY care that you did that. You sure showed me, you rootin' tootin' eagle eyed marksman." Death yawned, and poked through his torso, fishing the bullets out with his index finger and flicking them to the side.

    "That's sarcasm, by the way. Come now. It's elementary. You should know I don't die so easily." Death wiped the blood from his finger with a handkerchief, as Nine admired the Horseman's durability.

    Even War and Famine were susceptible to pain. Death, on the other hand, didn't even flinch as the damage healed.

    Nine smiled, and holstered his gun. "Yeah, I didn't think you would." He pointed to Death's now blood soaked, buttoned up shirt. The red lightly spread across his stomach like a dark cloud. "Fucked up your monkey suit though."

    Death grimaced. Indeed, one of the marble buttons as sitting at his feet, a burned hole in its side. Death's shirt was ruined. "God-dammit. Hold on. I should go change. FAMINE. Deal with him."

    Famine, having watched the fight with casual interest, stood up. "WOOGA BOOGA!!!" His muscles slowly began to bulge, his metal bodysuit shifting and morphing with his unique physiology. "Let's dance!"

    I liked it. While War and Famine's abilities are best suited for offense, Death is best suited for defense.

    Post  dragon of darkness on April 6th 2013, 9:31 pm

    Here I found some info about the Weapons in halo 4 if any of these are wrong just say

    Halo 4: Assault Rifle
    DESIGNATION: MA5D Individual Combat Weapon System

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The MA5D ICWS is an exceptionally resilient gas-operated, magazine-fed, automatic rifle designed to execute close-quarters combat with lethal efficiency, regardless of hostile counter-op environmental conditions or duration of use in the field.



    Halo 4: Battle Rifle
    DESIGNATION: BR85 Heavy-Barrel Service Rifle

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The BR85HB Service Rifle is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, semi-automatic rifle optimized for three-round burst firing, and proven to be an extraordinarily versatile weapon at a wide variety of ranges in the hands of a capable marksman.



    Halo 4: Stick Detonator
    DESIGNATION: M363 Remote Projectile Detonator

    MANUFACTURER: Acheron Security

    The M363 RPD is a low-profile single-shot weapon that launches a magnetically latched explosive, which the operator can remotely detonate when at a safe distance. Although previously manufactured in low quantities, this weapon’s size and ease-of-transportability has made it ubiquitous in the years which followed the Covenant War.


    Halo 4: DMR
    DESIGNATION: Designated Marksman Rifle

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The M395 DMR is a gas-operated magazine-fed marksman rifle that maintains a smart-linked, telescopic, rail-mounted sight for scout personnel. This rifle favors mid-range to long-range combat, offering impressive stopping power.



    Halo 4: Magnum
    DESIGNATION: M6H Personal Defense Weapon System

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The M6H Magnum is a semi-automatic, recoil-operated, magazine-fed handgun and the standard personal sidearm of all branches of the UNSC post-2555. This weapon is surprisingly effective at reasonably long distances, proving its universal value in the field.



     

    Halo 4: Rocket Launcher
    DESIGNATION: M41 SSR Medium Anti-Vehicle/Assault Weapon

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The M41 SSR MAV/AW is a portable, twin-tube, shoulder-fired rocket launcher, capable of firing two 102mm rockets with incredibly destructive potency. It is easily one of the most pervasive explosive weapons within the UNSC's arsenal, largely due to its transportability and firepower.



    Halo 4: Sniper Rifle
    DESIGNATION: Sniper Rifle System 99-Series 5 Anti-Materiel

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The SRS99-S5 AM is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, semi-automatic sniper rifle with exceptional accuracy and the ability to simultaneously breach both energy-shielding and high-density armor, making immediate kills nearly effortless when this weapon is properly utilized.



    Halo 4: Spartan Laser
    DESIGNATION: Weapon/Anti-Vehicle M6 Grindell/Galileian Nonlinear Rifle

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    The M6 G/GNR is a semi-automatic, shoulder-fired, smart-linked nonlinear rifle that projects a superheated beam of energy which is undeniably effective at destroying both enemy personnel and vehicles. Design for this weapon occurred in parallel with the GUNGNIR-class of Mjolnir GEN1 armor, resulting in the informal name ‘Spartan Laser.’



    Halo 4: Plasma Pistol
    DESIGNATION: T-25 Directed Energy Pistol

    MANUFACTURER: Iruiru Armory

    The T-25 Plasma Pistol is the standard sidearm for most Covenant infantry. Typically used as a semi-automatic, directed energy pistol, this weapon’s scaled burst functionality allows it to fire an overcharged collection of plasma, temporarily incapacitating the power systems on both armor and vehicles.



    Halo 4: Storm Rifle
    DESIGNATION: T-55 Directed Energy Rifle/Advanced

    MANUFACTURER: Lodam Armory

    The T-55 Storm Rifle is the evolution of the standard Plasma Rifle and served various infantry during the violent Sangheili civil conflicts that followed the Covenant War. The weapon now includes a modular coil set, a high-mounted cooling shroud, and an extended barrel, all contributing to greater overall performance in the field than its predecessor.



    Halo 4 Needler
    DESIGNATION: T-33 Guided Munitions Launcher

    MANUFACTURER: Lodam Armory

    The T-33 Needler is a compact, fully automatic guided munitions launcher that breaks off shards of chemically-charged crystalline. The shards home-in on sighted targets with specific heat signatures, impaling the targets just prior to simultaneously and violently detonating.



    Halo 4 Energy Sword
    DESIGNATION: T-1 Energy Weapon/Sword

    MANUFACTURER: Merchants of Qikost

    The T-1 Energy Sword, exclusively wielded by Sangheili, is a close-engagement weapon intended to express its owner’s personal skill, clerical honor, and combat viability. The blade is composed of superheated plasma and folded against magnetic lines extending from its hilt, effectively creating a razor-sharp martial weapon with lethal functionality.



    Halo 4 Covenant Carbine
    DESIGNATION: T-51 Carbine

    MANUFACTURER: Iruiru Armory

    The T-51 Carbine is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic, charger-fed marksman rifle capable of firing ballistic rounds at significant range. It is somewhat unique among Covenant weapons in that it is not dependent on superheated plasma or other energy-based material, but rather fires radioactively charged ballistic projectiles.



    Halo 4 Scattershot
    DESIGNATION: Z-180 Close Combat Rifle/Asymmetric Engagement Mitigator

    MANUFACTURER: Unknown

    The Z-180 Scattershot is a prominent Forerunner channel weapon that was used for close-range defense toward the end of their war with the Flood. While practically unstoppable up close, the most remarkable attribute of the Scattershot is its schismatic dispersal effect, drowning confined hard-surfaced interiors with brutal, ricocheting beams of energy.



    Halo 4 Shotgun
    DESIGNATION: M45D Tactical Shotgun

    Manufacturer: Misriah Armory

    Magazine Capacity: 6 Rounds

    Dominant close-quarters weapon specializing in boarding actions, breach maneuvers, and urban operations.



    Halo 4 SAW
    DESIGNATION: M739 Light Machine Gun

    MANUFACTURER: Misriah Armory

    MAGAZINE CAPACITY: 72 rounds

    Squad automatic weapon used in protracted engagements where sustained or suppressive fire is required.



    Halo 4 Railgun
    DESIGNATION: Asymmetric Recoilless Carbine-920

    MANUFACTURER: Acheron Security

    MAGAZINE CAPACITY: 1 round

    Powerful linear accelerator that fires explosive rounds at tremendous speed to efficiently eliminate targets.

    Made some modifications to our forums.

    Got rid of Grand Prix, replacing it with "Magic Mundane," for current day stories. That can encompass superhero, secret agent, or racing stories.

    I also moved Grand Assembly up underneath Halo stories. That way, newcomers can be immediately made aware that we take other types of story.
