Third Annual Belinsk Arts Festival!
Golden Sun fansite The Temple of Kraden
is proud to announce the third annual Belinsk Arts Festival, a celebration of fannish creativity. Hosted on the Temple's forum, the festival offers contests for all kinds of creative arts, as well as programming such as user-run panels, Skype-based concerts and poetry readings, and spotlights of individual creative works.
After two successful years, we would like to open the festival to our friends in other parts of the Golden Sun fandom. Contests will be announced in June, and July will see the opening of the festival proper. All that is needed is a forum account on the Temple. We hope to see new friends join us this year to celebrate the game series we all love and to challenge our creative boundaries. If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please visit us at the Temple, or drop a comment on this entry.

The Third Annual Kradenmas Fic Writing Contest!
Hey all you fic writers! I'm here to announce the Third Annual Kradenmas Fic Writing Contest

- Write a GS-themed or Templeverse-themed* fanfiction
- Submit it to contest runner Tartan no later than Kradenmas Eve at midnight (12/24)
- The fic must take place during winter. It need not concern itself directly with Kradenmas, but explicitly Kradenmas-oriented fanfictions are welcome and encouraged
- There is no minimum or maximum length limit. Poetry is welcome as well. Entries are to be sent to Tartan's PM inbox.
*Templeverse relates to a version of Weyard tailored for Temple fan projects. No one not familiar with it needs worry; just write about the canon characters, and you're fine.
If anyone has any questions, just post here or at the Temple. You do need an account there, but it's free and simple to register, and we don't require you to have a minimum of posts or anything to enter the contest. Current Mood: creative

Hello. How are we today? A little quiet?
I know I haven't been back in a bit, but I've got some more Golden Sims stuff. You liked that, right?
Part 2: The Lost Age
Part 3: Diliculum Discipulum
(though in retrospect I should have gone with the genitive form rather than trying to mess with adjectives before I learned them...)
Part 4: It's Soon
Enjoy! And please, feel free to comment, I almost never get comments.

I don't know how many of you may be interested in the Sims series, but I recently got my hands on a copy of The Sims 2 and have been making Golden Sun characters in it. A brief chronicle of my adventures to date can be found over here

You've probably seen this before if you frequent other parts of the fanbase, but if not, I'd like to introduce you to Operation Sunrise. It's a movement to show Camelot that the fanbase would be interested in a fourth game. The facebook page is here
, and a petition is here
(and it doesn't require you to make an account to sign). As of this posting, the petition has 1291 signatures.
We can't know how much it will all help, but I don't see any harm in the petition, at least. Here's
the full quote from Hiroyuki Takahashi about the series and it's future:( From an interview about Mario Tennis Open.Collapse ) Current Mood: hungry

gingerly prods community............
Hey, GS fans! I'm Naoko, and despite having been in this fandom for about eight years, I don't think I've ever actually posted to this community. ;;
In any event, I'm just dropping by to announce that there is now a NEW GOLDEN SUN KINKMEME
over on Dreamwidth, since the old one is looking pretty stagnant. If you're interested, please feel free to swing by and join us--we just started up today, so the more the merrier!

Okay. So several years (and three computers) ago, I found an Ultimate Equipment guide for Golden Sun
and The Lost Age
I can't find them now.
Fortunately I had the guide for Golden Sun saved, but not the one for TLA. Halp? :<
They looked something like this:

Seeking an icon
Does anyone know where I might find an icon of a Psynergy vortex? Preferably plain, although there are overlays and text to which I wouldn't object.

Golden Sun Fandom History Survey
! How are all you lovely people? I come bearing a survey which I would love to have you all fill out. Your input would be much appreciated, as I'm hoping to put together a fandom history of sorts for Golden Sun Universe, our fandom's wiki. We want to expand the fandom articles there, and this is the starting point for that. It's nothing hard, just some simple questions, and you get to talk about yourself, which everyone loves to do (I know because I do too). Please just answer the questions as best you can, and if you have any extra information you want to share, well, there's a space for that too! Thanks in advance for your help!
When did you first get into the Golden Sun series?
Which GS game did you play first?
When did you first start seeking out the fan community in any form?
If you contributed any fanworks, when did you start doing so?
Every fandom has its memorable figures; whom do you remember, and in what time periods(s) were they active?
How much did/does shipping matter and what did/do you ship?
List any and all GS fansites you went to and where you go now.
Which fansite was/is your main one?
What are your thoughts on Dark Dawn?
Which GS game is your favorite?
Which is your favorite out of the first two?
Which element is your favorite?
Which Adept is your favorite?
Is there anything else fandom-related you'd like to share?
Would you be willing to participate in further surveys on this subject? Current Mood: productive

I finally have fanart for this series
I drew a thing.
Might be offensive to those of you who would be offended at the thought of Piers getting romanced against his will by an angry dragon. (spoilers for Mars Lighthouse in TLA, just in case)Crossposted to my own LJ.

So, it's a bit later than intended due to my computer being on the fritz, but the com I mentioned before is a go!gsfest
is now up and running. I couldn't decide, so there's An exchange
for Valentine's Day, and a Prompt and claim
round which lasts until April.
The Valentine's Day exchange sign ups will be open until the 14th of this month. The prompt and claim round will be accepting themes until the 21st of this, then we'll move on to the claiming stage. You don't have to be a member or intend to write to submit themes.
The posting deadlines are quite a bit apart, so I encourage you guys to join in on both ♥

Hey everyone., I'm Bard. I have been a huge fan of Golden Sun since 05 when the original came out. Currently I am playing Dark Dawn which I just got last week for a Christmas present. I love many of characters including Amiti. I kind wanna ship him with everyone mostly with Rief. Because for some reason I think they make the fucking cutest couple ever I swear.
Amiti/Baghi/Rief threesome is totally cool( Cutting this because of spoilery kinda stuffCollapse )
I hope to meet new friends and do some RP I am actually interested in some IM OC Rp <3 Current Mood: bouncy

Little question about Dark Dawn
I know I haven't posted since some weeks, but I didn't want to spoil me anymore xD. Well, I finished Dark Dawn today, but I have still some questions about it and I hope someone of you can help ^^".
Does anyone know, where I can get all dschinns? I only know where to find all Mercury-Dschinns, but that's all (and I think I can't get the last one at the moment x_X...)
Same for the summons. Does someone know which summons you can get and where?
That's it for the moment ^^". Thanks in advance!

So, while modding a challenge com for another fandom (Fire Emblem, for the curious) I realized GS fandom has never (to my knowledge) had a writing challenge community. I'd be more than happy to make one, but wasn't sure if the fandom at large would be interested, and didn't want it to die outright, so a moment of your time, please?
Would you be interested in participating in a writing and art challenge community?
Would you prefer a monthly challenge, secret santa type exchange, or prompt claiming?
Secret Santa exchange
prompt & claim, ala Spring kink
all of the above
If you answered 'all of the above' which would you prefer?
One community -- I don't want to join multiple communities and clutter my flist
multiple communities -- it makes it easier to to tell stuff apart.
The secret santa and prompt exchanges can be combined, but I want the monthly challenge separate.

Golden Sun kink meme, round 2.
To celebrate the release of Dark Dawn, just a bit late.
Note, just because it's a kink meme, doesn't mean you have to request
all the best ultrasex
NC-17 prompts. If you're hankering for some cute PG-rated fluff, that's fine too.
|Thursday, November 25th, 2010|
I'm working on a much-farther-along-the-timeline GS fic, and I'm having trouble getting it to come together. Might one of you be willing to help me, if only by tossing ideas back and forth?
Potential warnings: stream-of-consciousness, character death, implied character death, names and implications regarding Dark Dawn characters, timeline conflicting with Dark Dawn's.
|Wednesday, November 24th, 2010|
1 - 2 → Fullmetal Alchemist
3 - 30 → Golden Sun
31 - 35 → Axis Powers Hetalia (one icon's in there twice, I can't be arsed to fix the code)
36 → DC Comics
38 - 40 → Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
41 → Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
42 - 58 → Assassin's Creed II (screenshots and concept art)

Just a silly question...
I'm fairly certain this is my first time posting here, so quickly, I guess: I've been playing the games since I was 10, I'm 19 now, but I still haven't beaten TLA and there's a bit of a story behind that but I won't bore you kind folks. (I'll be done very soon, though.) I've been lurking here for years. (I can't remember if introductions are done here or not, so if the answer is no, I'll just delete this portion.)
But I have kind of a ridiculous question, and feel free to tell me to GTFO if this is just dumb to ask here: Is there anyone else on the planet who kinda-sorta ships Babi/Lunpa? I just realized today that it's kinda right up my alley. I mean, my ultimate literature OTP is Winston/O'Brien from 1984, and even Big Brother/Goldstein. I mostly ship that stuff for crack (Winston/O'Brien was originally my way of getting through 1984 when I hate Winston so much,) but I also genuinely love them.
So, yeah, anyone else have a bit of a soft spot for Babi/Lunpa? Crack or otherwise? Current Mood: dorky

Chances are high that you probably kept in touch with the updates on the different GS
sites. It's really thrilling to see all those updates about the game! There were also a lot of characters revealed throughout October. You can check them out on the JP site
One of those silhouettes was revealed only a few days ago. We are now presented with the final villain of Dark Dawn
!( SPOILERCollapse )
Here's the newest video from IGN. Enjoy! Current Mood: hyper
