If only you guys could see the wall here in my office. I have one complete wall (the largest) dedicated to Myth. Across the top and extending from corner to corner is a Time-Line extending back as far as we know until after SB. There are even a few small notes below trying to estimate a place for Chimera and the uncovering of Connacht's shrine in MWA. Below that are pictures, notecards, and other general information on Myth. Also, I have the Myth 2 poster up there amongst everything. And finally, in one corner, I have a listing of all the Myth levels (TFL, SB, MWA, Chimera) and a list of the Mythmaster Central rules. When I say the wall is covered, I mean covered. ::curses about broken digicam and not being able to take a picture::
As far as the script(s). TFL is done. Oh, sure it needs a little bit of polish, but besides a FINAL draft, it's basically done. SB is 3/4 finished. Chimera (which I plan on making a 45 mini-movie to be included on the SB DVD release ::ahem::) is finished. SB would be finished by now if I hadn't been distracted by MWA, of which I am making notes on how I figure on fixing the various plot points that NEED adjustment from the game.
: In your script Zand, does Balor get involved in the Last
: Battle? I mean, rather than just bolting a few guys,
: it'd be absolutely terrifying to see him a cut a
: bloody swathe through the Legion.
Balor DOES get involved, but not too much. That confrontation isn't as big as the scene(s) that I put before it. In the game, you never see the Final Battle with the Legion. That's in my script. Along with a lot of action from Soulblighter. Remember that wallpaper that was released by Bungie (at least I think it was Bungie) a few years ago? Check out the link below. That was a big inspiration for that battle.
: Lovestory? There really isn't heaps of room for a love
: story. I mean, if you're focussing on the legion, or a
: few guys IN the legion- you're still going to struggle
: to find an adequate and plausible way to introduce a
: female role. Maybe a survivor they find? One of the
: missing Fallen Lords, shapechanged to simulate a human
: female and infiltrate Alric's camp?
I've tried to avoid too much of a lovestory. This is about Good vs Evil, not Love. However, I think you lose a little something if you don't put as many human emotions into a story. The only way to do this (without doing too much, or being too mushy) is to have short/quick scenes with the warriors leaving their homes/families/wives/etc... These men are fighting for them anyways. They fight against Balor and company to not only drive away the darkness from the world, but to keep their way of life and to keep their families from becoming trophies in Ghol sacks. But I've tried to keep this stuff to a minimum. You want the audience to at least see ALL of what these men are fighting for.
Hmmmm.... maybe my MadSkillzz character should be the Journal Writer, eh?
