  1. Never feel silly! I have done far, far sillier things... and THANK YOU! So far it is slightly boring and filled with existential unease from being in a drawn-out state of transition. Hoorah. But yes! As to not completely derail this important thread, I once more state my intention to trumpet the awesomeness of this site to the virtual world.

  2. Why not!? You can still role play in the Students forums! :E

    Whoops, I should have clarified which kind of graduate I meant xD Yeah, IRL I just graduated from college, so I can't bug my pals about it. But I will totally RP anywhere here, and I am ultra happy I am a S*T graduate! Nyuuuuuo don't make a sad face D:


  3. Hi! Welcome! We've got a lot of crossover in terms of interests, it would seem. ^o^ Also, the 20's are quite fascinating! Such a time of turmoil and social shifts, and contrast between sinful decadence and desperate poverty. Also the clothes. *swoon* I hadn't thought of RP-ing it! That's awesome.


  4. Long ago in the sacred mists,

    Our Lady Diae with hamlike fists

    Did rend the earth asunder.

    We pay tribute to her divine blunder.

    --Inscription on the main lintel of the Thirty-Fourth Temple of Diae

     

     

    THE PLACE

    We begin in the midsize and bustling town of Elros, a charming, if not somewhat mundane, locale packed to the gills with all the features one might expect as standard of such a town--bored sons of merchants, squabbling housewives, a mysterious and significant-seeming cat sitting in every third window. The thrust of the adventure, however, takes place in and around the Thirty-Fourth Temple of Diae. The temple is located at a convenient distance from the town, but not so convenient as to not qualify as an adventure. Being the thirty-fourth out of thirty-seven temples for Diae, it is not particularly important, and the crack over which it is located is generally regarded as a mistake by Diae. However, the surrounding woods and very swampy swamps hold their own particular charm.

     

    THE OBJECTIVE

    You received the following letter just a few days ago:

    Dear __X__, I am writing to you because you have recently come to my attention as a being of spirit, courage, and having extra time on your hands. I believe you know of the Thirty-Fourth Temple of Diae. A rumor has recently come to my attention that an artifact of significant value and unknown may lie within its depths. Because I am a man of relatively substantial means and unreasonably little patience, I must obtain this artifact at once. I will provide for the majority of your supplies.Should you accept this quest, I can offer you an impressive amount of gold and enough liquor to drown a goat. You will recognize the artifact by its radiant paint job and general aura of mystery and oldness. Please reply in haste. Yours, Geraldo Bombersput.

     

    TL;DR

    Standard medieval/fantasy setting, retrieving kinda crappy artifact from kinda crappy temple because kinda rich guy is paying you to, swamps, adventure, fun times.

     

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    Just something I thought might be fun, plus I need to practice and get the RP-ing going again. Post if you're interested!

    Open to all sorts of characters.

    Yay!

     


  5. @Raine Bell: Thank you! At least if I lose my soul it will be in the best way possible.

     

    @Asura: UFF. Worst drops ever. Also somehow despite my attempts at evasiveness it still manages to steal so much of my gold! D: Thank you. Also, nom, bacon. It's been said before, but it makes so many things so much better.

     

    @The Dan: hi okay i no leave ^^


  6. Re: 2DS--This, in addition to the Wii U, is making me go: "Nintendo... huh... bluh?"

     

    Consoles--Possibly PS4, though I don't currently have a PS3. Thinking about getting one after the release of the PS4 anyway, because there are a lot of games I would like to play, and the lack of non-cloud backwards compatability for the PS4 is less than appealing. In the continuing theme of "I am totally behind the times," I recently made the switch from mac to windows and SO MANY MORE GAMES. MMO's here I come!*

     

     

    *Except, apparently, for FFXIV because SERVERSBLAH. It would be nice if I could buy the game via digital download within the next couple weeks. -_-


  7. @Tsai Kou: Thank you! I'm sure that you are excellent at other activities involving your hands, such as typing awesome works of interactive fiction.

     

    @DayDreamer: I enjoy cooking and baking things in the shapes of animals... And steak... And cupcakes with bacon crumbles... ((also, thank you ^^))

     

    @Meheres: Thanks :D I hope that the self I rediscover is as not-completely-sucky and imaginative as it was before.

     

    @Valentine: Thank you!! In reality the mushroom people are tiny erasers, so they might give you a slightly upset stomach.

     

    @Blackfrost: Thanks much! I will try to snag a cookie, though I am not above crumb-scrounging if they are worthy cookies (the vast majority are).

  8. Hi there! ^o^

     

    So a long while back I joined as "BrocadeDreams," upon the urging of a friend. I had a tremendous amount of fun. And then... the life-sucking, wonderful, monstrous creature known as "The Last Two Years of College" happened, and I dropped away.

     

    But, hoorah, I have recently graduated and moved onto the world of real adult people, which so far seems to consist of much more gaming, writing, and art-making than when I was in school. I'm reclaiming some pieces of my geek identity/soul, although I'm pretty sure I was already operating at a high level of geek-dom (cosplay, con-going, and D&D would put me there, right?). Uhm... I majored in theatrical design. I sew a lot. I love cooking and baking. And aneemals. And lots of other stuff.

     

    So, yay! I'm glad to be back, this time for a longer stay.
