Out in the middle of the underground river was a big, gray, ovoid "rock". It was about 4 feet long and 2 feet wide, looked sort of like a big gray egg with just the top sticking out above water. I was standing there looking at it, marveling over how much water and how much time it had taken to wear it down to that shape, and playing the beam of my mining lamp over it, when it suddenly SUNK, just submerged in the water leaving swirling ripples on the surface.
What do all think?
Remember... I'm old, so forgive my question!
'NPC'...? what does that mean and do we post the above on this thread (Working Thread)?
Brilliant idea. Like a synopsis thread. That would be great...
are you inviting new writers in?
I actually wondered if Xcathdra has a creative bone -- he's a good writer, in my opinion. Clever guy.
I actually thought about compiling a synopsis from the Opera for my own use, to know where to look for back info.
And as for BIO -- you mean of the characters? Like the survey we did the other day??
Could we ask masqua to move the Saga 2 posts into a "Space Opera Volume Two thread"?
oh, I see we both used the word index...I'm thinking of your suggestion as a Synopsis or Outline. By Index, I meant a reference for every time a character, place, or major event is mentioned. Like at the end of a non-fiction book. Which in the old days was the "search engine" equivalent for scholars and researchers.

Problem is we need the info in line with the story.
Maybe naming the chapters will help with the search engine - that's why I started naming mine.
Yeah, I get that...we do need a synopsis, in sequential order.
I just find it helpful to ALSO have an alpha list of persons, places, events, with page numbers. For example, when I wanted to read up on Adam and Dag; I could go there and look up ADAM, and it would show me every post referencing him, in order. Rather than thumbing through 50+pages of threads looking for him.
