My mother told me once of when
A young hare ventured from her den
And as she danced in field and glen
The world sang joy about her.
But wicked hateful things abound
And that young hare these evils found
Then whisked her up from off the ground
And glen was left without her.

The wicked power tore asunder
And with this cruel and fateful blunder
Cast her to a world of wonder
Would she e'er see home again?
And so hare flew that mournful day
Over the sky and far away
And down and down, beneath the sea
To a place unlike the glen.

A world of men and man's design
A place where God's light would not shine
A Hell of steel beneath the brine
Where misery's echoes boomed.
And all around her there were others
Beasts like her, all sisters, brothers,
Locked up, all, with one another,
In deep sea-dark, entombed.

And in this crypt far from the shore
The hare lay down upon the floor
Imprisoned there forever more
And left to all her sorrow.
Her tender world was lost and gone
So joy and happiness foregone
She slept and cried and prayed for dawn
To wait the coming morrow.

The hound was still, the birds said naught,
The fox denied he had been caught,
The bear cried "This is just our lot",
And surrendered to his pain.
But the cat stood up and shook his head
And rising from his metal bed
He said "For now, I am not dead,
And I will not die in vain!"

He cried aloud with much disdain
And tore about his stark domain
And said "These walls cannot contain
A force as strong as I!"
And the fox just laughed, and the birds all cried
And the bear knotted up himself and died
But the hare looked on as the poor cat tried
To break him free and fly.

He shook his chain with all his rage
And flew in anger 'round his cage
Decrying this dark mournful stage
And the hare stood up as well.
With passion did she then respond,
She chewed her ropes and broke her bonds,
And freed the cat, they ran beyond,
They ran to flee that hell.

And what became of cat and hare?
Did they break free to purer air?
To guess their fate we shouldn't dare
Perhaps their tale closed well.
But for all the beasts trapped in the Nether
All life from out the loch and heather
The flock that could not work together
Are sure still trapped in Hell.

Hey Weaver, I have no idea how else to reach you. I wish you'd post an email address or something. Anyway, I want to make a serious offer to turn Ruby Quest into a movie. I know this probably seems like a piss poor attempt at trolling, but I really mean it. I think that Ruby Quest would make a fresh and valuable contribution to the horror genre, and I know that its intelligent storytelling would adapt well to the film medium. I have contacts with a prominent horror director in Hollywood who is looking for the next Paranormal Activity. I think Ruby Quest is that.

I don't know how I could prove that I'm sincere. Email me, I can give you more details and we can start talking about adapting the script, if you're interested. My email address is anonrebel at gmail dot com.

Please, Weaver. I think this would be a really incredible movie.
No. 34809 ID: b50003

You didn't think maybe you could talk to him in IRC? Because that would work better. Also even if you think it's good, and even if your director buddy agrees, you still need somebody to front the money. And who's going to want to risk money on a story about a bunny rabbit who doesn't remember anything reading notes all the time, especially when it needs plenty of special effects money for each character.
You'd have to make a hell of a pitch. And the script would need a lot of changes.
No. 34811 ID: bc7124

It'd make for a better adventure game, really. But I support your endeavors anyway.
No. 34812 ID: 676156

The characters would become humans in the adaptation, otherwise, there's no way it'd get picked up. There would be a few changes like that to make it more mainstream, but I definitely don't want to violate the integrity of the original piece, because I think it's just so awesome.

The director would front the money, but it'd definitely be a low-budget type of movie. There are ways to make things like gory zombie bears look realistic on a tight budget. Like I said, adaptation would change it, so that's why I want Weaver to help guide Rubyquest through these changes. I like his vision.

Also, what's the information for the IRC room?
No. 34813 ID: 676156

Actually, maybe the director would get someone else to front the money. I don't know. It's irrelevant. The point is, I have a connection with a guy who's a big deal in Hollywood and he wants to make a horror movie. I think Rubyquest is perfect. That's what matters.

Obviously I'll need something concrete to go on, which I understand you probably won't want to give out publicly. If you're serious about this, then of course, I am at least willing to listen.

You know, you could make it like one of those curious little foreign films. Now to just find someone to doctor the footage for all the CG effects. That or lots of pigs' blood.
No. 34818 ID: 98a59d

On the movie note.

I've always imagined it very well computer animated (Pixar I would wish), having almost no music (more environmental sounds) and rather sparse dialogue. With the frame-rate slowed down a little during particularly 'unnerving' sequences like ruby using 'the eye' to give an 'off' feel a bit like claymation.

However, all things concerned if it couldn't be well computer animated it may be better animated by hand. I can't really see how it would work live action.
No. 34820 ID: 2563d4

>adventure game
Well, I tried, going for the tech niche I think best fit it, and got a load of people telling me that text parsers suck.

Which was really quite motivational, as you can imagine.
No. 34821 ID: 8e2e95

I don't know about you all, but I feel as if this in claymation would seem a hell lot creepier than if in traditional animation...

Then again, if drawn with a cartoony feel... and detailed gore/horror things, It'd probably make me crap my pants.

[can see wondrous use of After Effects too...]
No. 34825 ID: 317eb0

If I made a RubyQuest movie, I'd make a "silent" claymation thing, but with environmental sounds, and a narrator. An even-toned, eerily calm-sounding narrator, like they had on old british children's tv. He would describe what the characters are doing and saying, and even suggest things to them - all with the same tone of voice, at all times.
No. 34836 ID: bc7124

I thought it'd be drawn like one of those classic little Disney animations, all cheerful and happy... and then they find Stitches's corpse and it gets all the worse in the contrast.

Almost like Epic Mickey except even more terrifying.
>Implying Epic Mickey is scar-
You know what I meant.
No. 34838 ID: a41aaf

I'd always imagined it as stop-motion with puppets, with the old Watch With Mother-style narration.
No. 34848 ID: 1963d1

Hell, with something like a Ruby Quest movie, it'd have to something animated. No live action, is what I mean. Live action would just KILL IT.

Note: Something unrelated to what we're talking about. I have just found out today that a good portion of people have never read RQ in the original threads. They used the condensed mirrored versions instead.
Seriously? What the fuck? Who does that?

No. 34851 ID: f09384

Get Lauren Faust. Lauren Faust can do no wrong.

Seriously though, at first it was weird imagining RQ in claymation, but the more I thought about it, the more fitting it seemed. Claymation just has something spooky about it. Check out 'Adventures of Mark Twain by Huck Finn', certain parts of it are pretty creepy.

Ah, wishful thinking.

Switch around with the different bits PERCEPTION FUCKERY, or even completely at random to screw with people.
Or go into creepyass claymation mode for the horrors, while everything else is animated cleanly.

No. 34903 ID: 8e2e95

Holy crap, this actually makes sense... as in transdemensional, demon substance found in the demon room thing is clay, along with all creepy things... and everything else is cutesy disney-like animation.

Suddenly, crazy contrast as everything starts becoming claylike until by the end, everything is claymation... until they open the hatch and suddenly...
cutesy disney animation again (except ruby and tom)
