So, I've been thinking lately. I'm going to be putting together a method of animation for one of my future roleplays involving crystals with energy held in them. With that stuck in my head right now, I figured I'd talk to everybody about it. Ask a few questions. Animation is the action of giving something life that doesn't ordinarily have life. For example, making a soda machine capable of choosing who to give the drinks to for free. My questions for this thread are: What is your opinion on Animation and Re-Animation? Have you used either in any past roleplays? What would be a unique way to go about doing this? What's your favorite book, movie, short story, roleplay - whatever! - that uses this?
