posted by Nexus

Hey everyone I'm back so I'll be able to post more! As you can see, we've now started to post news from around the Black and White community. We've got some quite new tattoos so be sure to check them out! .


More News, but this time for Creature Island
posted by Frag_of_Lag

More news from PC-IGN News about this time...bw2. Here is a quote from this news report:

"The idea behind the sequel is that the world has moved on. The villagers have a little bit more technology now, and they're more warlike. Fighting has broken out between the tribes. As a god, you're stuck in the middle of the ensuing war, and you have to choose which side you want to support. "I really like the idea of these huge, quite vicious wars going on, and you as a god returning to this land that you left in peace at the end of Black & White having to choose a side," explains Peter."

You should read the rest it looks quite interesting... .


More News, but this time for Creature Island
posted by Frag_of_Lag

Also revealed at ECTS yesterday, more details about creature Island. I got this little quote from PC-IGN News

"Peter nonchalantly opened up the demonstration with the blunt statement, "Overwhelmingly what the fans said is they'd like to see their creature have sex with another creature." With that said, Peter explained that the ultimate objective of Creature Isle is to breed with a female creature."

The creature added is one we were all hoping for...the crocodile. I was also hoping for an armadillo, or a hamster, but...oh well! check out the full article!

BTW:I've updated the tats page, so now there are another 9 new tats, made with the help of Gugbe, from BW Maps .

BREAKING NEWS!
posted by Frag_of_Lag

Its official, BW2 is official, it was announced at ECTS today! It is planned for release in 18 months! Apparently, according to BW Center...

"The game will be much more focused on the fighting and battle side of gameplay than its predecessor Black and White. This should lead to larger more tactical battles between many creatures and the one god must choose who to follow and trust. It also appears new creatures will be available for us in Black and White 2, what creatures are unknown at current but we shall keep you updated as news rolls in."

and so will we! BW also won a ECTS award along with Gran Turismo, they won 10 'coveted' stars between them. .

Well done, Chucman, glad you are staying with us. Well, I'm currently working on some new Tattoos, no one steal this idea. I'm doing tats that are like body rings. You'll see. Also, I am reporting that there is a new BW "club" on the block! BW Daily Play. You want info? This is what they said, and I quote:

"The Daily Play is a group or club, Not a clan. It may seem similar but it is not. The members are required to play at least one game every day, or as close to that as possible. Weekly Reports will be made for public viewing. In these detailed reports you will see picture taken from our staff photographers. This is a friendly organization no discriminations will be made. No ranking will be done due to the fact that this is for player growth, its a training center to sum it up. So if you are sick of losing, and you play everyday, then look no further this could be your ticket to number one."

Good, idea, badly designed site, but it looks to have good expectations, omly in early stages... but, that is how we started. More News: BW 4 Dummies is holding a Mascot Contest...I just found out! Also PBW have a great new POTD! It's really funny! I think I'll try and get a POTD thing up-and-running, just email me your pics! .

Madlib
posted by Frag_of_Lag

I was over a BW Nation and noticed something I had never noticed before. Madlibs. They are really funny, I wrote this:

"Once upon a time, in a giant jumping jamboree, far, far, off, lived a flying pig named A. A wanted to sail around the world, because he had lived in the same old village all his life. So A and his 2 friends, B and C, decided they wanted to build a sailboat and sail around the world. They pleaded to their God, D, Give us food, and wood for a boat, we will be very grateful! D was a very water-loving God and did nothing but threw his creature all day. But being in a psycho mood that day, D gave them the food and wood they needed for their boat.

Their boat turned out to be bouncy and everyone in town ran away from and followed by it! The last night before their departure, the villagers flew over their boat. The next morning, they ate breakfast quickly, said goodbye to everyone, and ran off to their boat, which they named E. A, B, and C sailed off, not knowing that later they would be jumped on by a creature named F. Eventually, they came back home, and lived happily ever after."

Isn't that so funny, check it out here!

Update
posted by Frag_of_Lag

Firstly, I'm just telling everyone that I have changed my name to Frag_of_Lag. That is my name on the PBW and all Gamespy forums. It is also my name on everything Gamespy!. Secondly, forget about the idea of hosting, too complicated! Anyway, we apologize for the lack of updating, escpecially since the old designs are still up, what a shame! I'll try and get Nexus to update it as soon as possible, or I could try it, though I am stil in Greece you have to remember! It's not that easy! Anyway, I have found some interesing and useful news on the PBW website! The add-on pack does not require that you complete the single-player game before you can install and use it! WHOOOO! Anywayz thats all, i'm gonna try and update a bit to the new design. That is all! Oh wait no: the maps page is down at the moment, I will fix it as soon as I get back to England! And also i have updated the staff page!

Neyahaha
posted by Dan

I've been ponderng this idea for quite some time now.....I thought, that since everyone else is doing it too, why shouldn't we? HOSTING! I have tested to see if it would work, and it does. Just go here to see the start of a new site. You could be the ones running it! If you want to run it, tell me. And when you tell me, say if you like the name BWedit, because i think it is good because I was hoping for a hosted site that was for for mods and stuff and editors and all that stuff. But you realise, you must be willing to run this site properly! You should have good HTML skills too!

Hello!

Hi, I'm Chuckman...no only kidding, its me dan. Hey I'm in Greece and I'm having a great time. Anywayz, I was just lying down on the beach, soaking up some rays, and suddenly, this woman walks past, and she's got no top on, and I can see her great huge tits! I mean, whats up with Europe, the women are always going round in the nude(not that i mind)! I saw 5 women and girls with no top on, and the only fit one's were on their fronts, oh well! I just saw them! Ok, c u l8er I'm off!

I over-reacted, sorry!
posted by Dan

Everyone out there you probably think I'm some big freak, well I did act like one. I'd like to apologize to ACDC and Catachan for my immature attitude. Forget telling Catachan what to host, we're popular enough, you're reading this, right, so I rest my case. This doesn't mean I'm not going to allow you to send in your stuff, check out the submit stuff page!


The Rebirth
posted by Dan

This is the biggest thing we have faced yet! All you people out there who would love to see this site in pbw gimme your tattoos, because this site is going tattoo crazy for the next week and beyond. We must beat ACDC, he must not be officially hosted by PBW, this is the final chance we have to take my our rightful places, so help us, people, help us! Tell catachan to host us and not BW Tattoos, you must, please!

Change of plan
posted by Dan

Ok, me and Nexus have decided that you should send in your designs! Yes you! We want your designs. They must be done in easy-to-edit HTML made from notepad. We cannot accept site with tables as they are not allowed with tripod. The best 5 entries (chosen by us) will be put in the poll, along with ours, and the public will be allowed to view them. The winning designer will also get a chance to become a staff member of BWTP if he/she chooses. If the winning design is one of ours, the design with the most vote byt the public's designer will become our staff member. eg.
if 1st place: Dans new design
2nd place:? new design
then ? gets to be a staff member
Please include your name or nickname along your email address if you please. All entries must be in by 21st of August or they will not be accepted unless they are really good! Please do not vote anymore til we allow it!


Do you like it?
