The Sea God(s)

Post by isfullofcrap » Fri Aug 13, 2010 3:55 pm

The psychiatrist arrives just in time.

On the rocks, the Sea God is arguing with himself, shaking his trident, raising waves higher and higher.

"Neptune fighting Poseidon again, Sam?" he asks, climbing into the rowboat.

"Yep," I say, lighting my pipe and pulling the rope from the mooring post. "Poor god's mind has cracked. His delusions are getting worse."

The doctor pats my shoulder. "Go!"

I row out into the swells.

Fifty yards out, he puts a needle into my shoulder.

"Just relax" he says, the storm becoming calm.

And, as my eyelids grow heavier, the massive sea god vanishes.

that was visual, well written and overall awesome. 10 out of 10.

Dribbled. :D

Tried to post this last night but didn't notice when freeforums failed it for its usual vague reasons.

TY... I liked it. Well done.

I've been meaning to record some by others, but I've just been to lazy to round up the effects and backgrounds.

Thanks, man. :D

Straight reads are really hard for me to convince myself to do for certain stories (like this one). Knowing how much work it takes to do one with sound effects, getting the motivation to do one can be challenging. I sometimes wonder if Dribblecast could get more recorded if people were collaborating so one person did the recording and another did the producing. I think that happens best when it happens organically though. :lol:
