The Terror And the Ice-Gripped Sandbox


The AMC drama The Terror is based on the novel by Dan Simmons which in turn is a fictionalization of the lost expedition of Sir John Franklin. The events in the show and the novel have light supernatural element, but most it's a tale of the typical things that would befall ships stuck in the arctic ice for years.

I've been thinking the ice pack could replace the Sargasso Sea in the film The Lost Continent. It could hold the descendants of people marooned their years ago. Their could be a frozen graveyard of ship with weird micro-societies and weird monsters.

Wonderful chance to bring up the people from the ancient magocratic empire that have been stuck on a gigantic frozen barge for millennia, waiting for someone to sacrifice so they can power their ship.

That's a great idea!

it's be nice if you could write something and know there the difference between *their* and "there".

It would be nice if you could write something and know the difference between "it's" and "it" and know that "there the difference" doesn't make any damn sense. Or maybe you do know, and those things are just typos. Being well aware of your own ability to make mistakes probably should make you less of a dick about other people's. Try it! It will probably pay off for you.
