So after some diligent Google searching, I was able to find ANOTHER part of a draft of The Scottish Play! It doesn't look like they scanned in the conclusion, sadly.

This time, I'm not thinking Mythago is finished early.

Not this early.

Which means whole minutes of her life ticked away while she was "googling" this.

Run, Macbeth, run.

I don't know if this will be any help, but what the hey.

Macbeth

Whew, this round is tough. Can we have religious themes in our story? I only ask since religion is usually banned on the boards, but it seems like we regularly bring up deities and gods in our Ceramic DM stuff. My stody currently has the Judeo-Christian God playing a part in it. Is this acceptable? I'm trying not too make it too relgiously charged, but God does play a part.

I think that's just a rule to avoid religious flamewars and debates--I know that we've had threads about Christian gamers and Judaism and gaming, so I can't imagine a story with a religious element would be a problem.

I hope it isn't a problem. I just finished a first draft, and I don't think it would be offensive. Plus it seems like we've had stories involving deities from other religions, and I tried to handle the topic maturely. Oh well, I'll just stick with this idea and hope it doesn't turn out to be a problem.

I would say you are fine. My first story in this tourney referrenced the Goddess Durga. She is most certainly a Real World Religion Goddess.

As is Kali, Vishnu, et al. from my second round.

OTOH, I didn't know there was a rule against religious stuff [argh so now we have a Grandma & a moritorium on RL religion].

Honestly, I think in story form, it shouldn't be a problem.

Profanity, Politics and Religion are off limits as topics. Every single time politics and religion come up, there will be somebody that gets off on an aggressive stance that makes further discussion pointless.

How about we make a deal: Macbeth gets to deliver his story the way he wants to, and we promise not to get into an online argument about his freedom of expression?

Anybody who feels the need to sound off about religion can do so offline. Online, we discuss only the literary merits of the story.

Personally, I like a story that indicates the author has convictions or opinions about something.

Sounds good to me. As I said, they are forbidden topics of discussion. It isn't that they are forbidden elements of story. :)

Hmm, looking back through the thread, I can see where it looks like I make remarks that could be interpreted as contradictory. I was trying to clarify that EN World does have policies on certain topics. But, I think it is safe to say that we have seen plenty of stories that include a religious element in some form (2 out of 3 stories for me in this tourney). I do appreciate Macbeth wanting to clarify though. I am looking forward to the story and if I want to discuss it on a non-literary level, I will keep it offline.

So, we know Macbeth is done with a first draft. We also know Mythago took a few moments out to "research" something she could use as smack talk. What are the chances that the stories will both be done oodles ot time early and we can read them later tonight? ;)

No way! I have to try to edit the heck out of this thing. There's no way I'm going to win against Mythago with my story as it stands now. But then again, maybe there's just no way I'm going to win against Mythago. ;)

Macbeth, that's lousy smack-talk! :p

If you've made the call, a story involving religion is fine. I trust your good judgment.
