  1. So... October 10th marks the 4th anniversary of the start of Iwaku 2.0. Four years later and we still be going in our newest variant. Linky

    King Weavel and I were talking in the c-box reminiscing about the days of the past… Of members that are no longer with us…

    Lettme get straight to the point here…

    If you have seen the Happy B-Day Iwaku thread, you might have noticed the quote I put in there showing a tidbit of the Iwaku history.

    This was part of a thing I wrote back in 2007, on the old Iwaku forum. Sadly I never got around to activity working on it, nor updating it.

    My question is this, would anyone be interested in a ‘Iwaku History’? Would you the members, both old generations and new… be interested in reading about Iwaku’s past? About the members and things that shaped Iwaku into what it is now?

    Would anyone be willing to help write an Iwaku history? This even includes events that have occurred now or recently. Such as evil server crashes, the Halloween holiday preparations and RP’s. Hell even Member profiles, yourselves or other members that are no longer with us. Least they be forgotten...

    I’m just throwing this out on the table now, to see what the interest is in it. I much rather not watch effort go to waste if no one is interested in it.

  2. Well, I for one would be very interested in it. I was late to join the old forum and was then brutally assaulted by the blender known as IRL, so sometimes it seems like I missed all the good times. If you do do a history (doobedoobedoo...) is it going to be a posted thing or like, a book we could purchase?
     
  3. Heh, posted of course... to make people purcahse something seems a tad off...
     
  4. I have a pretty good memory of the 'golden age' and other middleguard stuff.

    I'm in.
     
  5. I'm the only other old guard I know, woody ._.
     
  6. Okay, to clear stuff up, I have a few "Villain" types that I've sort of laid claim to via my posts in "The Daily..." that I'm not done NPCing just yet.

    Maxwell Lord (DC/DCEU-Supergirl)
    Vaughn Du Clarke (iZombie)
    Mariah Dillard (Marvel's Luke Cage)
    Norman Osborn (Marvel)
    Lex Luthor (DC/DCEU-Smallville)

    Are off the "Dibs" table until I pop back in here and say I am done with them. I wasn't clear enough (my bad). If I mention some off-screen bad guy in "The Daily..." it generally means I got a thread or plot arc cooking for them and they're off the table until some PCs face off with them in some story or another.

    I'm not hogging all the bad guys, but I do have about a dozen pages of notes on the big picture that's going on and if I let these guys go to a player, I gotta let that player in on all the spoilers planned for them and the point of a great story is finding it out along the way, right?

  7. its not a matter of whether or not people want it comrade.

    the history of Iwaku SHOLD be told by those who were there and remember.
    (shit, most of the time i'm on here i see hints to past rps or members, adn it brings back waves of nostalgia)
     
  8. I remember I remember <33
    I was a puny little kiddiee member back when I first came, but Gabe always had me stuffed into super-project-missions to do stuff for him xD
     
  9. Well I'll help with what I can. My memory is foggy in places, good in others. The history of Iwaku is important IMO.
