I actually had a look at the I Write Like tool a while back. I put all of In the Footsteps... through, and it came back with, rather aptly, Lovecraft.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Ah, did you know you can now leisurely reenact – and maybe even alienate any American friends visiting – with 1812: The invasion of Canada the board game? Definitely looks more fun than it sounds, if you can get the 5 players...Turns out the Durham side played an important part during the War of 1812.
Try posting various chunks of your writing. So far I'm Chandler, Margaret Mitchell and Rudyard Kipling .I actually had a look at the I Write Like tool a while back. I put all of In the Footsteps... through, and it came back with, rather aptly, Lovecraft.
Thanks for the tip. I just found it on Board Game Geek. It actually looks interesting.
Yes. I made that connection right away . I tried my original passage several times, each time deleting cookies, and it always came back as Chandler, so like you, I'd like to see the points of similarity. A friend suggested if I use the word gibbering in a passage, it should come up Lovecraft. I tried it, and got Dan Brown!! Gibbering? Dan Brown? Maybe for the reader after trying a few chapters...Once upon a time I put in one of the better action scenes I wrote for Siegerkranz and got back Lovecraft. I would really like it if they listed the points of similarity, because nothing says "Things from beyond Time and Space" like "urban combat."
Thank you. Finding graphics to match what I'm writing is a pain in the butt. And I can't find the pic of a certain battle in the upcoming post. Anyway, just a few minutes now.Also, glad to hear we don't have a long wait for the next update. Waiting warmly.
Well, after hunting vampires, it's only natural Abe Lincoln goes after Great Old Ones...I copied a paragraph from this thread which mentioned several Lovecraft gods, and unsurprisedly it came back with Lovecraft, so I think it has at least some word recognition. When I entered several Abe Lincoln speeches, it varied between Lovecraft and Shakespeare.
Cthulhu vacationed at Slaughterhouse 5 and all got was this horse-head t-shirt...I put in three samples from 'Special Providence' and got HP Lovecraft, Kurt Vonnegut and Mario Puzo.
Estimable writers all, I'm sure. But to find all three contained in one of my AARs tells me I am more... multitudinous... than I had suspected.
Odin may not meddle as much, but he doesn't ask for the sort of sacrifices Cthulhu does. So I'm not surprised the Old Ones are more tentacles-on when they get paid more, haha.I don't know how active Odin intervenes in the matters of the living, but the Old Ones are fairly hands-on.
I can see the TV ad already – Pound for pound, Cthulhu gives you moreOdin may not meddle as much, but he doesn't ask for the sort of sacrifices Cthulhu does. So I'm not surprised the Old Ones are more tentacles-on when they get paid more, haha.
