New Fan Feature Blog

Postby Tanith » Wed Mar 06, 2013 1:18 am

Come on, come all to a new collaborative blog created to feature favorite PS "phan" projects, including art, fiction, music, comics and more. All features are nominated and voted upon by the phans (see blog for more details on how you can participate).

It's the Eppi Forest Blog!

So far we've featured some great pieces of art and music, and we have a weekly "advice" column by Raja himself. Right now we're taking nominations for favorite fanfic, which will be featured by the beginning of next week. Other projects, such as comic collabs, may be added in the future. Comments and suggestions are encouraged!

As a maintainer of this website and message board, I'm wondering what's stopping people from posting that stuff here.

Thanks! A few of us put our heads together and came up with a blog format that focuses on fan efforts only. We wanted to avoid being another informational/resource site because there are already enough of those and it'd basically just be us regurgitating information that's already available elsewhere. We're hoping that by a process of nominating and voting on work, we get more involvement out of the PS community, too. Plus, it's the perfect opportunity to showcase phan works from sites like deviantArt, fanfiction.net, pixiv, ocremix, etc. Those artists don't always stop by the fan sites, so it's a great way to let them know that we're watching, listening, reading, and most of all enjoying their work.

Just in case someone asks, we always get the artists' permissions to showcase their work before posting it.

Eventually we'd like to see some of the contributors do more blog-exclusive work (comics, skits, etc), so if you have any ideas, be sure to stop by Eppi and let us know!

I like the idea of this! I was trying something similar with the 'Phantasy Star News' section but never ended up maintaining it to the degree that I wanted to. There are tons of Phantasy Star fan content out there that haven't been highlighted much in the PS community.

Best of luck!

This week's feature is up, and the winner of the poll was...*drumroll*...Snorb's Ripple Effect! Woo hoo!

(Now maybe he'll finally update it! ;) )

Ripple Effect is, indeed, awesome! I want more chapters!

I see that you've linked to the story on Fringes of Algo. That version hasn't been edited, so you might be making Snorb look bad. Not to mention that it underwent some censorship.

I consulted Snorb before writing the post, as is our policy. He looks just fine to me! ;)

Watch out for plot holes in the latest featured fanfic, and Don't Fall In!
