I love that show

I've seen a few episodes, but have missed a lot. I have a previous engagement on the night that its on. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD, so I can get lost.

How many episodes are you planning to make? Or are you going to continue making them until you run out of ideas?

Depends on what you mean by episodes. If you mean the individual scenes for the current King of the Gypsy story, there are 100. If you mean stories over all (i.e. Cave of Terror, Blackheart's Gold, and King of the Gypsies) I plan to keep writing until I run out of ideas or lose interest. I've got about 6 or 7 ideas I can run with for new stories, so it will probably be the interest I run out of first.

I guess you decide what an Episode is.  

I thought Cave of Terror, Blackheart's Gold, and King of the Gypsies were an episode each.  But if we do it the Doctor Who way, then each sequence could be seen as an episode.   Not a very long episode, but it could still be an episode if you wanted it to be mr creator!

You are the one asking the question, so you should define what an episode it; at least for purposes of the question. I could conceivably define episode as continents and then give you an answer of: "Seven: N. America, S. America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Antartica". This, while being technically correct, given my definition of episode, would be of no help giving you the information you requested. Thus, it would make much more sense for you to define episode, for purposes of this question only.  :-D

Now you're blabbering worse that I do...

The basic definition of an episode "An incident or event that is part of a progression or a larger sequence."

What I'm saying is: Since you're the writer, you decide how and where the story is broken down into episodes.  But from your previous response it appears you have no idea and are blabbering to buy yourself time...

That wasn't blabbering. It was a thoughtful analysis of the issues raised by your two posts I was responding to.

Quote

Again this doesn't tell us much. We could classify each of the stories (CoT, BG, KotG) as episodes because they are part of my larger sequence of AoJT stories. At the same time, however, we could classify each picture and its accompanying narration as an episode of the adventure (which are essentially self-contained stories). This is because they are part of the larger sequence of the initial adventure. Similarly, we could further classify each group of 4 (4 simply because I generally post 4 pictures at a time) as an episode.

Quote

What I'm saying is: Since you're the writer, you decide how and where the story is broken down into episodes. But from your previous response it appears you have no idea and are blabbering to buy yourself time...

To clear this all up, I suggest the following classifications (starting from largest unit to the smallest):

Series: the entire collection of adventures
Adventures: the entire story (CoT, BG, KotG, and any others that are forth coming)
Installment: the scenes I post at any given time
Scene: each picture with its accompanying narration
Picture: a collection of pixels arranged to make an image
Narration: a collection of words arranged to tell a story
Words: a collection of letters arranged in such a way to represent a concept, action, object, et al
And so for ad nauseum...

Now, given that, would you like to repeat your initial question that sparked all this taxonomic insanity?

Yes, you were unnecessarily blabbering...  And never engage in silliness with Phes...  Phes has never ending silliness and will argue the point till the opposition gives in.  Just ask Bloody Jay about that.

The question [for those who can't scroll up the the thread and read it was]:
How many episodes are you planning to make? Or are you going to continue making them until you run out of ideas?

You're the creator.  You decide what duration of the story consitutes as an Episode.  

If its left for me to decide then all three of your stories are merely chapters of one longer story.  If that doesn't suit ya, then specify otherwise.   :^D

Whatever does it for you I guess... That is pretty accurate. I am not, however, trying to tell a long story. There is no grand climatic conclusion to the whole story arch. There will, however, be things that will affect the story later on. Basically it is just a series of short stories... Think of it like the Star Trek series. Each week there is an essentially self-contained episode. Sometimes things that happen will have results in later episodes and somethings will end with that week. Here each Adventure would be roughly equivalent to an episode of Star Trek.

So to answer the question of the number of episodes (or Adventures, to use my preferred term):

I don't really know how many there will be. There isn't a set number in my head. I plan to just write until I run out of ideas or lose interest. The latter will probably be more likely than the former. I do have 6 ideas for episodes floating around in my head somewhere.

Steve, who hopes that puts an end to all this... :D

This is what I meant by "I was viewing the adventures like a movie... But it seems more like a series, like lost..."

But then you responded:
"If you read them as I publish them, then its more like a TV serial (like lost), with each update being an episode"  Each "update" (so far) usually consists of 4 new images, with the exception of a double update with 8 new images.

Which caused me to ask how many episodes you were planning to make, and in response you asked it depends what I consider to be an episode.  Then you went off on unnecessary tangents making me define what an episode was.

Now you're saying each adventure is equivalent to one episode.  Had you said that in the beginning none of this would have transpired.  So there's been 3 episodes so far, 6 more in your head.   Obviously when I first asked you hadn't decided what you were doing in regards to breaking it down it episodes. You could have informed that you hadn't worked that part out yet.  It would have been much simpler for you.  Unless of course you was testing The Phes...

Well I did try to make it simple. I answered your question using both of the reasonable interpretations of the term epidose. I refer you to my earlier post, which is quoted below.

You didn't make it simple!  You left it subject to my interpretation which I eventually made you clarify.  In my previous post I've highlighted the inconsistencies in your responses.  You just wanted to play games!  So I played along with you.

I wouldn't want to be a publisher entering a contractual agreement with you to produce x number of episodes.  One minute you're saying each update is an episode, then the next you're saying anentire adventure constitutes as an epiosde. I'd expect that to me made clear without me having to ask, otherwise I'd be a bit suspicious about what you were up to!

Here's another update for you all. There are only 6 more updates until the thrilling conclusion. That's 24 more scenes, for anyone who is keeping count, making it longer than my previous two combined. Hope it was worth it:

Some initial random thoughts...

Cooke sure is a super hero! No man can touch him!  I wonder if he can fly?  Is Jedreck straight or what?  What kind of man wears that much purple anyway? They do a lot of hissing, are they really snake people in disguise?  Now they're doing a lot of continuing...
