  • Maybe if I mention this here, I can get the ball rolling. I added a comment to Draco's "Holy Grail" page, the Chalice of Dionysus. I think you agree with me that this is probably not the Holy Grail. I asked Draco, but my comment appears to be ignored, so I'm not sure whether he just doesn't care or if he is annoyed by it.

    That being said, would it be alright if I pitch/make an appropriate "Holy Grail" artifact using the Celtic origin as I mentioned in the comments?

  • So, Sarah has been brainstorming a few story ideas, and she wanted me to ask about a few artifacts relating to fandoms. I have worked and adjusted their origin to make them as good as they can be, so I wanted to ask you about them before proceeding:

    • Black Butler artifacts (bifurcated)- Sebastian's Butler Pin: Gives user demonic speed, strength, and senses. Downsides: Will make user obey the Eyepatch wearer's commands without question. Ciel Phantomhive's Eyepatch: Increased crime solving and acting skills. Downsides: PTSD from death of parents and cult slavery.
      • Her story idea involving these is actually intriguing. It's a Pete/Myka story, and it involves a place in England where strange occurances are pinging in the Warehouse system. However, what makes this case difficult is that the people in the house are collectors of the Victorian era, and they have unknowingly collected many dozens of artifacts (not all of them active at once). Without knowing which artifact(s) caused the original ping, it's a process of elimination to determine which artifact is causing the trouble.
    • Ernest Renan's What is a Nation?: My recommendation for her wish to have a "Hetalia" artifact, which I didn't think was large enough by itself to have an artifact. However, the book is based on his idea: "A nation is a soul, a spiritual principle. Two things, which in truth are but one, constitute this soul or spiritual principle. One lies in the past, one in the present. One is the possession in common of a rich legacy of memories; the other is present-day consent, the desire to live together, the will to perpetuate the value of the heritage that one has received in an undivided form". When the book is read, it turns the reader into a stereotypical representation of their country of origin. The personalities she wants to use are (mostly) based on their characters in Hetalia, as figured below:
      • America: Obsession with fast food and being a hero.
      • England: User will become more polite and drink more tea over time. They will also become more skilled at making tea.
      • Germany: User will become stronger and more obsessed with working out. (The more the user works out, the more s/he becomes stronger and more obsessed with working out.)
      • Italy: Obsession with pasta. User will also become more creative, especially in the fields of painting and sketching.
      • Japan: User will become more curious of other cultures. However, user will need time to adjust to other people due to not knowing much about the outside world.
      • France: User will become more skilled at romance and flirting. Due to this, he or she may flirt more often then normal.

    • While I can't speak for everything else, in BB Demons have enhanced senses and skills. Speed, strength, hearing, etc.

    • Hmmmm . . . . Perhaps there's a way to limit the overall power of the Black Butler artifact? Although if it's older than the manga, then it's a matter of finding an origin that better suits it (since at that point it wouldn't technically be fandom-related). Or adjust the effects to something similar that can be the basis for the series (assuming a change in origin).

      As far as Scalec's point, what if the artifact takes the stereotypical view of the reader as the basis for the appearance? And perhaps making it so that it doesn't activate in the person's home country? The purpose of having it activate in a different country aside from the reader's own is so that, assuming they don't have a default opinion to go on, they have a chance to observe the people of the other country and form their opinions of them.

  • Since it came up on Nate's discussion, I was thinking we need a more concrete way of identifying where an artifact originated. The idea I've been mulling on all night is that if an artifact is a movie prop, screen used, it should be categorised by the name of the movie. Imn this way Ash Cambell's Chainsaw would become "Evil Dead" Chainsaw, with a more detailed description on the page proper should it not be obvious enough.

    If an artifact is fan made, it should say somewhere that it is a replica, either as Replica Pokeball, Pokeball replica or even, and in my opinion more suitably Pokeball (replica). Anything else can be played by ear as it comes, and these are just my thoughts on the matter. You're the convention aisle master, what do you think?

    On an unrelated note, what do you want to do about Old Bone? I want to continue the Once Upon a Warehouse story soon and he features quite a bit, but he hasn't even been mentioned recently and I was wondering if you wanted him written out or altered in any way before I continue.

    • Yes, it was, I remember. Technically it was Seducción Salvaje, I think (Google translate is iffy at times), Kelly just translated it to English for Pete and Myka.

    • So, if, for example, we made a prop from the movie "Space Jam" into an artifact, it would depend on whether or not it was used by an actor/tress or not? Michael Jordan's Tune Squad Jersey verses Basketball from Space Jam, correct?

  • I just noticed two of Krixby's artifacts which, by the apparent discussions on their pages, should probably be removed: Weeping Angel Prop from Doctor Who and The Big Bad Wolf's Pelt. I figured I would let you know, since I don't think non-Admins can delete pages.

  • Hey, I know Sarah is still under probation, but would you mind if I used her for the next story of my Sailor Moon arc? Garr suggested I ask you and Draco first to make sure it's alright. I can give you my reasons, if you'd like, for using her. I can come up with something else if it's not okay, but I'd rather use her if I can.

  • Hey Per, I had a thought. Would it be alright to make a page which tracks how many artifacts each character, both from the show and ours? It wouldn't be the specific artifacts, but it would track specific stats. For example, how many artifacts has each agent collected? How many were on their own, or were with specific people (Myka and Pete, for example, would each get a point for an artifact they collected, but they would only get individual scores if they collect an artifact themselves)?

    • I thought it would be best if it came from the Madrigal family themselves. It's something they collected several hundred years ago, so its true origins have been lost to time. But it's basically theirs at this point.

    • Good idea. And we can always discover them later.

  • So there was a statement then a warning not to touch you aisle, which I wont do. However I didn't actually get a yes or no when it comes to cleaning up the wiki by moving the white links from the main list to the comments. So yes or no?

  • What about the bee's knees? It's not a metaphor, but it might become an artifact...or something involving pigs flying? I know, stupid ideas, but I'm only throwing suggestions to the wind.

    • I don't know. I looked at the artifact, and it seems too interesting to replace or get rid of. I'm not sure what the object could be, though. I think the effects should be more along the lines of the metaphor/phrase, though. Normally, the phrase "when pigs fly" is used when you don't think something will ever happen. So, maybe its something along those lines? Perhaps it's even a conditional activation, only activating when the phrase is said.

    • Makes sense. Go ahead with your idea.
