One last idea. Final image. A large healthy snowhorn herd. Sitting in a quiet corner being attended to by haremhorns is an very old nohorn in a blackrobe whom the current hornmother refers to as the great fathernohorn who cared for the first snowhorn.
Nohorn husbando & snowhown...RIP. (T_T) That one was heart wrenching and you just popped that off the top of your head. I bow to your writing skill and Imagination! Personally I'd like it end with a witch's silhouette in the mouth of the cave because she couldn't let this incredible little pair just
>...end like that. Cut scene to them back at the witchs' home in blankets sipping soup...and happy again...The ending credits will show pictures from an alternate world where snowhorn and nohorn husbando could have kids together somehow. There's be lots of little snowhorns running around and happy family pictures and warm eggs. Second-to-last image will be snowhorn's tiny himehorn hand grabbing on to nohorn husbando's hand, final image is snowhorn's scarf draped over nohorn husbando's backpack. All images will be drawn in a cute pastel style.;~;7
I'm going to take a wild guess here Dan... Snowhorn VN ends with the snowhorn dying of old age 20-30 years later and the nohorn ingesting some sort of poison before one final cuddle with the snowhorn's cold body.
The essence of tragedy is that you get what you want ... and it's a disaster.Nohorn husbando works very hard to fill that herd-shaped hole in showhorn's heart. Amazingly, he does. He even finds a snow-white surface herd that take her in. But now he's left a nohorn-shaped hole in her heart that she'll never be able to fill. Snowhorn can't take it -- After a few days, she leaves the herd of her own volition and chases after nohorn husbando... she can't live without him after all...! ... There's a terrible snow storm, but snowhorn doesn't care. She walks and walks (very hard for a tiny snowhorn travelling on her own) and miraculously find a small cave. She finds nohorn husbando inside. Dying and frozen. She looks in his backpack (the one with all the cakes he gives her) to find something to help, but it's empty. He fed her all the food on the way to the surface himehorn caves. He never saved anything for the trip back... it was always going to be a one way trip for him... he tried to hide it so she wouldn't be sad...... now that she's ran all the way out here there's no way she can find her way back to the himehorn cave entrance...It's okay. She loves nohorn husbando so much. She makes a couple little snow-himehorns and curls up with nohorn husband. He's her herd. This is their herd. They can be together forever like this. The snowstorm continues until the entire cave is swallowed up...RIP Snowhown ;~;7 RIP nohorn husbando ;~;7 You were a real not-a-bully nohorn ;~;7
>I have Hero's Quest // HOLY SHIT, SOMEONE ELSE KNOWS OF THAT GAME? Me and one of my grade school friends played the SHIT out of Hero's Quest! His copy got ruined when moisture got to everything though. That game goes for a LOT these days!
That was pretty rad. ||| Indeed! ... I just have a copy of Arkham Horror, but I have no one to play it, so... yeah, pretty useless.
Aside from that, I played D&D3.5 and WoD, now I am using Roll20 to play D&D5e... IF you want and have the time, check the site. Maybe you might find something you like
Well, at least you recognized that Darkcake and Pancake are good girls... ;~; ||| Don't suffer Dan. Those are the rules of the internet after all. The resistance is futile.
Once you create something and share it, someone, somewhere, sometime, will ¨taint it¨ mercilessly somehow without fail.
