Greetings all,

I'm getting ready to write another tale in the Merge Universe but I'm not sure which idea to go with so I'd like your help! Below are a few "TV Guide" type blurbs for each tale. Tell me which one sounds more interesting to you. Thanks in advance!


Troubleshooters - A Holy night and a Geek Girl find themselves as unlikely partners in a new Chaos Control Company. The two are sent throughout the kingdom to investigate and control the Chaos caused by the Merge. An "X Files" meets "CSI" style story.

The Rifleman Returns - With his rifle out of bullets and a crazy Gnome giving him advise, what's a guy gotta do? Take a trip of course! The Rifleman returns as they seek out adventure and bullets (hopefully) in the far off land of Barstownia.

Are We Heroes Yet? - The Ten years of Chaos have ended and many of the heroes of that age have retired or died with the ending of the era. So who will fill their place? Follow the tale of former "Sidekick" characters as they come to find out if they've got what it takes to be the heroes of this new age.

The Fall - What happened when the Merge happened? Where were you? Could you survive? Take a trip down memory lane as we examine the causes of the Merge, the damages, and the fallout. This History Channel style trip examines the Merge through the eyes of survivors and experts who've studied it years later.

Thanks for looking!

Well.. the one that sounds more interesting of all was the blurb about "Are we heroes yet?"

In the first blurb - "Troubleshooters"


A Holy night and a Geek Girl find themselves...


Did you mean "Holy Knight"? If so it does make sense.

Also these words "Chaos" and "Merge", are they some sort of brand names or something? since you've capitalized them throughout.

Anyway other blurbs are alright.. but they don't seem to give the same influence/ effect as the one about "Are we heroes yet?" This is just my opinion. Anyway I'm totally new to blurbs, so I maybe wrong. =D

No your opinion is good. You also got me on the Night verses Knight. Stupid mistake. :p

Yes, "Chaos" and "Merge" are proper names from the world. The Merge is the name of the even that slams the Fantasy world with the Modern one. (Yes capitals since they represent named worlds) The "10 Years of Chaos" refers to the period of time immedietly after the Merge and is often the name of the forces of change and terror that occurs throughout the world. Also if you go deep into the where's/why's/how's of the Merge Universe the fact that Chaos has a name has even more meaning.

I'm glad you like the Are we Heroes Yet one because it's actually a fun period of time in the world that I've role played and written in before.

Ya, I knew it might have been a typo.

Well.. I'm not into RPGs and related stuff.. so the way I grasp them might be totally different from someone who's already into RPGs. I'm sure they'll give a better opinion about it. =)

*Chuckles*

This is an open question so no need to apologize Blue. That's two votes for Are We Heroes Yet?
