One thing that I like is Haiku (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku)....so I'll try having Haiku Wednesdays for each game's forum.

The best Haiku (contemporary 5-7-5 syllable style) wins 100 gold. Winners are selected by me (right before the next week's Haiku) and are heavily influenced by forum feedback...keep in mind I like the funny and the creative.

I'll start it off easy:

Crime City Forums
Tough crowd, a little funny
Smarfengartener







How many of you used your fingers to count syllables just now? Good luck!

-er


EDIT: Any scores I give are rough/tentative scores and do not determine the winner (but higher scores will usually win)

I can't do this, I was never creative... But I do want to feel included... So here is a short poem

Mary of the mountain Glen
Seduced herself with a fountain pen,
The nib broke off,
The ink ran wild,
And she gave birth to a blue black child

Sorry if anyone takes offence, it was intended to keep people's spirits high



Edit.
So this could work...

I can not do this
I was never creative
But try this instead...

No right or wrong in poetry (as long as it doesn't rhyme!!!)

Tradition is 5/7/5, tradition also requires a kigo... And the latter just gets ignored.

5-7-5 is just a basic structure, not a rule. The rule is <17 syllables, a seasonal word and fixture on one subject....

No kidding, I remember agonizingly failing through a jap course for a friggen semester. Yes 5-7-5 is also req'd if you're counting jap syllables but becomes redundant when transposed to English.

Jaded much?

Do you tapjoy? What's the difference? Why wouldn't you try to win 100 gold? It is something to keep the forum interesting. You sound like you either can't write a haiku, or you haven't won any of the previous contests and you feel there is a conspiracy going on. Which is it? Either way, you don't have to participate, it gives a better chance for those that do.

Even if that is the truth, so what? It's a bit of fun. Bringing an easy bit of lightheartedness to the forum. There's so much drama and sniping and moaning recently that a bit of fun like this is welcomed. People are all getting to serious. I think quite a few people on here need to take a bit of time away from the game. Let us have our fun, id get involved even if there was no prize on offer just for the laugh it's meant to be.

Enjoying my time

Glad you're enjoying! 6.5


If they want to give people 100 golds, they already give it. If they don't want, they won't give.

I think this is like a bone & a bunch of dogs, once he throw the bone, the dogs will run for the bone. Come here, good dogs, let me feed you. Sorry guys, that truth hurts!

I like your metaphor of the bone and the dog...the hint of alliteration...and the visualization of feeding...5.25....oh wait....is this a poem?


I don't care about the gold. It was fun, both writing some and reading other people's haikus.

Glad you're enjoying it! I'd love more ideas!

While these haiku posts are mostly roasts, of newbs and dudes that care to boast,
I think i could inferr that er would concurr More strucutured parameters and iambic pentameter,
Convey far More practically, and also syntactically, your intellect better than most.

While some may go on at me, I hate the economy of three single lines that are sent electronically.
And so this post goes, with prose I hope shows that haiku is a form of rhyme that just blows.
I'd point out at this juncture, I've screwed up the structure, but hopefully no one will post this ironically.

So to round out this thread and mark it as read, collect my last twelves and then head off to bed.
I've two final lines to write one at a time, a lead up and summary before turning to crime.
So now I will summarise as best as I can, I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Ram I am.

Mine is in 4-7-6 style:

Hundred gold sucks,
I need hundredfifty gold,
to become goodfella

In the highly unlikely chance that I win 100 gold I'll spend it all on the most useless gold items I can find :)

Also made one up last night, but it was to dirty to post. I'd probably get a ban for that one, so it shall never be spoken of again.

My partner insisted that I was addicted,
To this tiny and trifling game.
So here is my story, the details are gory.
But tell me if you think the same.

When I got up from bed, my wall was all red
From some douchbag who started a war.
My hood was invaded, my buildings were raided,
And I cried till my eyelids were raw.

I hope he expires and then dies in a fire,
With rik astely on infinite loop.
Intestines unweaved, And then soon relieved
Of all fingers and toes in one swoop.

But then I relaxed, And took a step back,
And realised its only a game.
But this post tonight, took 6 hours to write.
And that arse got my nightclub again.
