I've been brainstorming ways to possibly reignite the passion of the the community, and I remembered the media contest we had before....
Would anyone be interested in something like that?

Probably different divisions, one for mapping, music, and finally probably modeling. I want a big emphasis on mapping and modeling though

[Cryptic, due to paralysis.]

How many of my students had children of art and flesh in total I wonder?
How many married, how many forever alone?
How many could never defeat themselves, and are still mere wind up toys of domination and elimination, to be slaved blindly to a cause?
Forever blind do what you wrought, like cyclopean giants.
How many added to the ever-rising ocean of death, made of tears of the unborn under the thumb of fear of each other?
...and how many pushed it back?
Who learned how to judge the value of lies? Who merely thought he could only distinguish between fact and fiction?
How many true men, did our school give birth too?
How many of those of divine inspiration?

I know one of you was taken from us:
Both light and dark are necessary for the hope of life. Who knew our lesson like no other, and his center of his wheel.

I cannot find the hate to forgive it.

At the moment, our banished to graduation rates are the abysmal line, 3:5.
A school with this lack of merit, cannot be allowed to continue, as a matter of unbreakable family law.
Unless that changes, it is paralyzed, and will be allowed no children of its own,
not by my efforts, but by the lack of social energy available to feed the project.
Call it, a social phenomenon of falling birthrates, or of divine providence.

But one more triangle can yet be added to that chart of lore as redemption.
Who can find it, or guess, before I buy the investment, if any?

Perhaps we shall we draw three from the WIP archives, find three volunteers, and finish them... Pick one last graduate and one last banished,
not from the maps themselves, but from the most uplifting comment.
I wonder how many have learned that callousness and bitterness is not strength and that hammering your opponent down, is not winning, while lifting him up to see eye to eye is - as is recognizing when you must stop and listen.
Not enough to unfreeze MSC's pen, so far.

Best comment gets a message from a celebrity face I will match to suit, shared to all, about the nature of our game,
a speech the celebrity themselves will derive from the comment. (~300 chars).

As a tribute from the former headmaster turned gallery keeper, to MSC's finest graduate,
sophie_guildmistress-jpg.5036

Whose father was born on such an fortunate day.
For all the unborn children of MSC.

Well - coulda done doctor who, no one from here who went onto there has passed, that I know of.

But... Since I both look and sound like this now:
Forgiveness for our failed students.

Are you up for the final game and gamble? A merging of the old and new?

You are certainly worthy.

Alas, pride and greed it is. We shall add your map as the lid. Explanation point whose line we bent into a question mark, will become the period to end all stories, when the hooked scythe is removed.

I know not why this is the will of our gods, beyond the outline already painted, I only respect it.

That's hardly any motivation to continue, or to pursue future projects... of which I had many in mind.

Then break the cycle, we are only a vicious circle now.

Alas...


My great grandmother was struck by lightning - thus the whole family does not see people as people, but as potential futures.

We are forbade from agency in this decision, until the balance changes.
You cannot advance, until you find out how to take The Lost with you.
This place cannot be allowed to snuff out or let fly any more futures.
3:5 is the limit.
A man cannot do more harm than good over the span of his life and memory, nor visa versa.

There's only one determining factor that can make a difference, and that's sheer power of Will. Will to finish the fight. Will to do things right, and to persevere at any cost. The end of the story is only when the Will ceases to flow through the hand.

Exactly.

There is no will left for the existence of this school among the forces that bind me.

It'll be a fine coffin lid, to a near two decade attempt to resolve the first problem and the last question, I'm sure.

Fear not, neither of those efforts ever ends - headmasters and gallery keepers, merely pass torches. There are always new and better games.

Or perhaps MSC's mausoleum will yet inspire more younger artists to grow.

Understandable. It's up to you, ultimately, what is to become of the state of things.. as they are now. With that, goes all future promises and dreams. All potentials, possibly being lost in exchange. Whatever you decide is fine, I'm sure. Hopefully someone or something can reignite things... If that's truly what this has come to...

It's too bitter to swallow.

If you want inspiration... I suggest visiting the meadows and dark forests of Sweden. ;)
(But avoid the one of scorched earth and mindless robots.)

Ah yes, the cold soulless plains of the Lapland... I'm sure they're familiar to me somehow.

If this is really happening, is there any solution for future endeavors? Is there a failsafe system? Has this been planned thoroughly?

Panic is setting in

Vision is getting dim

This doesn't need to end,

It doesn't need to, but I lack the agency to change it. The children must decide.

It will be archived well, that much I can promise. The father of that child, will have the key to the universe's formula and code, both of mechanism and of lore, and all the materials trapped below the line of The Lost, after the collector of sculptures has passed.
