That was pretty amusing. And potentially inspiring >.> I'm tempted to try to do a vaguely similar thing and gather together every PPC character I've ever come up with, which is also kind of a lot (fewer, but still a lot), but...well, who knows. Something could come out of that recommendation, anyway.
...well, in fitting anniversary!return to newbie feeling:
did hS just call me a good writer?? flails :P
The Blackout! You're right, there somehow isn't a photo! I was so sure there was, but it's not on the Blackout page or on the April Fool's Day page. It does exist on my hard drive, though, and I've even tracked it down again (it was not where I thought it would be). As for sticking it somewhere accessible--I can just put it up on the wiki? That's probably the simplest, apart from just plain emailing it to you (which is also an option, and possibly even faster). I might go ahead and either blank out or translate the Hebrew ads that are visible, though (come to think of it, I could actually just put English text over the Hebrew...it's an amusing ad, for some IQ test thing where it's asking how many legs this illustration of an elephant has). The screenshot itself shows everything down to the first post on the page, which was, of course, "First mission posted! --DawnFire".
PS: I had reason to look through pictures I'd made of my Calaquendi agents, and even track down an informative email I'd sent to Lily Winterwood when I was first making most of them. Said email has interesting things about their
color-coding choice of colors worn, and where the heck I got it from. Unfortunately, the dollmaker thing I used to make most of these images in 2015 (and a Naergondir remake in 2018) runs on Flash Player, which is now discontinued, and mine either isn't up to date or...well, the site insists it's out of date, anyway. So no more really pretty Elf images from that front, unless they decide to rejig the game. Of course, there are other fronts, hence why I was looking at all of this stuff to begin with... ;)
PPS: It turns out that both of these agents actually already have wiki pages with nothing but infoboxes on them! I had completely forgotten about that (as is, I suppose, obvious by the infoboxes-only state they're in). I'm going to have to fix that, at some point, which is, of course, complicated slightly by the fact that their recruitment isn't exactly...finished, much less up. I can probably either write around it or figure I'll just run with giving those spoilers, which are kind of mild to begin with and probably known by at least a handful of people by now anyway. It was tragic. They're Noldor (mostly. Primarily. Gurnirel has a Vanyarin parent or grandparent, but is functionally Noldorin overall). Things don't tend to go that well for First Age Noldor.
