a music workshop or rather an artistic workshop? I'd be interested in both and hopefully get some stuff done!

A 'What's in my bag'-SPRITE JAM, be it drawn real or fictional stuff, might turn out interesting.

Aside from the main Fortnightly Writing Competition...

When October rolls around, and the Halloween mood is in, maybe do a sort of "AGS-themed creepypasta writing contest."

I like it. I’ve often thought that next time I win the FWC I would choose “invent your own urban legend” as the next theme. Unfortunately I don’t enter FWC much these days, so your idea is better.

Thanks... the creepypasta could be about an AGS game that gets, well, spooky on the player.

Even those that are not horror genre get all spoopy and do weird stuff.  Could be all just within the game, or may even include a portion where it spills out in the real world (for instance, giving that player nightmares long after, or maybe his body freezes up--except for his head and arms--and he MUST beat the game in order to escape the grasp... stuff like that).

Well, I know what I'm going to steal for my creepypasta.
I'm kidding, of course. (laugh)

So for the creepypasta contest, maybe whoever starts it picks out one of the games in the AGS library (preferably one with a good rating) for the "theme".

Wouldn't one with a bad rating be easier to make a creepypasta out of though?
