    What is The Inkstain?
    The Inkstain is an ingame newspaper that I created ages ago because (a), I like writing, (b), I thought it sounded pretty cool. This is the brand new thread that I've created for it with all updated information for all of you Inkstain lovers!

    Prices
    To buy a subscription (a membership-type thing that automatically gets you the new issue sent to you every time one comes out), first you buy the subscription booklet. Then (awesome change to our system here!) you simply mail it to me to initiate your subscription! This is a big change from the rather cumbersome old system. :) If you already have a subscription, don't worry! Your subscription is still active.

    Current Prices
    Subscription: 600r
    Single Issue: 60r

    Currently being worked on, because I need a better system. :p

    Do /v hashhog3000-3 on SMP8, or /v 16594, to get to the brand new Inkstain HQ! Now, you'll notice that it's huge, and that's because I'm planning to expand into a full-on bookstore, but that's just in planning for now. :) Anyway, to get to the Inkstain issues, proceed to the left wing for the current issues.
    Issues of The Inkstain are also currently purchasable at the Tiger's Text Bookstore in the periodicals section.

    Issue Information/Status
    So, clearly The Inkstain has been around for quite a while, and I only have nine issues. Now that the HQ is built, expect a new issue out every two weeks. :) Some issues may be published at slightly different times for holiday reasons.
    Most recent issue:
    Inkstain 12

    Current status:
    Preparing to write Inkstain 13

    Donations
    The Inkstain would not be possible without all the help we've received! :) Thanks to all who have helped us and donated to our cause!

  2. I would like to donate 20k to help keep the business going and along with that 600 rupees for a subscription. :)

  3. Wow, thanks! :D Your donation will certainly go to good use.

    Also, if you guys missed in the thread, Inkstain 9 is available for purchase now, but I'll be sending it out to all subscribers tomorrow. :)

  4. As a subscriber to this Newspaper, I fully recommend this as it is a good read. Specially the jokes/funnies chapters. can't wait for the next issue

  5. I'm going to buy a subscription soon :) This still seems great and I've always wanted to buy an issue ever since The Inkstain first started

  6. Bump. I'm exhausted, so I'm going to be sending out 9 to subscribers tomorrow. Sorry, guys, but I gotta get some rest. :l

  7. Bump. Sent out Inkstain 9 to subscribers and added a list of subscribers to the op because #convenience. :)

  9. Alright! Finally :) I love this newspaper. Whenever I'm having a bad day (such as today), I'll come home and read the Inkstain, and laugh my head off alone, with no one home to hear me... :p

  10. So getting this now :D I remember first seeing it but never knew the point or how to do it exactly XD

    Edit: Just sent my subscription and a 5k donation :D
  11. It sounds amazing!

    And so another distraction has been added to my upcoming weekend :D

    Anyway, going to check this out when I get online (most likely tomorrow evening (local time) but I hope sooner of course). I do have a question though; long does the subscription run for?

    Can't wait to get my hands on a copy! :cool:
  12. For all eternity, unless you want to cancel it at some point. :p

  13. I sent my request, is there anything else I have to do to get a subscription? :D

    Note: as I said before I donated 5k but that was an edit so I wasn't sure if you saw any of what I said xD

  14. Nope. :) The mail system shows me the date that the mail was sent to me, so I can check my rupee history to confirm it. The old system was in place because I was a derp and forgot about that handy feature. :p

    And thanks! :) I'll add it to the op. :) I appreciate the donation!
  15. Okay just checking! :p yeah no problem, I will probably donate more in future :) I can't wait to read #9!
  16. Do I buy the subscription booklit at your res?
  17. Yes. :)
  18. I got to confess I still don't read these :( The reasons: I'm behind, and I kind of want to read 1 through 8 before I read 9. But that costs more time than I have. So I'm thinking I should just start with 9 now, in order to not miss even more, and perhaps read back the earlier ones later.
  19. Well, I haven't seen or read any of them yet (so I don't know what I'm talking about right now) but surely you could always consider going backwards? Start with 9, then read 8 and so on? Bit like going back in time, which could also be fun.

    As to reading in-game... Don't I know it ;) I haven't even managed to finish Kephras' stories yet (but half-way into chapter 1 of the story I'm reading I was caught enough to get the whole collection :)).

    But I like it. I mean; in the event that I don't know what to do next I can always go into my storage, grab a book and start reading :) (I really need to build myself a library sometime, seems quite fitting).
