Is this still alive?

Postby Trevoke » 17 Oct 2012 22:31

A few days ago, not knowing anything about this forum, I decided that this should happen.

Don't judge me; I was on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/dune/comments/1 ... te_dune_7/

And then someone told me that here was a Dune-related forum, and I wasn't the first to try to make this happen. So .. Is this project still going on? Am I allowed to pilfer at will from what is written here? Does anyone want to join in this cycle?

we pull it out & poke at it from time to time ....

lots of ideas have been floated, but we haven't yet buckled-down
and tried to get an OH Consensus on any major points ....
(except, of course, that Marty & Daniel are motherfucking
Face Dancers
(goddammit) & that Tleszer will
do the actual writing once such a (fucking impossible)
Consensus is reached ...

but, by all means, please Join the Party ...

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

I have recently read two Dune continuations; Dune Advent by William Mitchell, and Dune Revenant by Marco van Leeuwen. I will certainly want to read yours, and if you've set up a mailing list, please sign me up :)

Alright; let me get some stuff underway with the few people who are interested, see how we want to organize, and then we'll see how to best interact / merge with your ongoing work.

If you want to join the "mailing list" (right now it's just everyone's emails, there's ~9 of us), feel free to send me a PM on reddit or an email (my username at gmail) and we'll pull you in :)

Sorry to necro, but is everybody still working on this? I would love to see where it would go.

We don't frown upon resurrecting old threads here.

Thanks goodness. So, restating my earlier question, how far has this gone?

I don't think it's gone anywhere... so get busy!

The only unanswered questions I have are what exactly The Net is and how Duncan has memories from ghola lifetimes he doesn't have cells from.

My best guess is that the "Net" is a visual representation of a means of redirecting a noship's course. Whether its the result of a technological device or a biological "talent" developed by AFDs I cant say.
