Also not playing anymore
« on: February 24, 2017, 03:28:12 PM »
I actually haven't been playing regularly/at all for the last 6 months to a year. Low magick game direction is one thing. Glass ceiling is another thing. Lots of stuff. I still shit around on the GDB though.
Where have you buried the body, MeTekillot?

I haven't played much in the last year myself.  I averaged about 3 hours a day since 2010, and then down to less than 30 minutes a day.  Probably more like 15 if you factor in idle/afk.  I won't go into the reasons why, there's no point.

I'm also saying goodbye to what's become a big part of my life.

For the past few years, this burrito place near my house has been excellent. I've been going at least once a week.  But lately, the burritos have been noticeably smaller. I'm making the decision to stop going. The fire chicken was really spicy without killing the flavor, and is pretty perfect. But all things come to an end.

Just keeping you guys up to date on stuff I don't do.

Same here, I'm on a break from Arm.  Burnout is the reason for me.

I'm also not playing anymore....

For atleast an hour or two because I've had teeth removed and I'm more or less blacking out every now and then with wanting to pass out.
I'll be back on in like three hours.

I am playing (and have been for a few months) after what was probably a 2 year break.

Also playing for the past year after a five year break. It's good to take a break and play the game in moderation, if you can handle it, but don't feel committed to leave forever because you announced it at some point.

I've been back and loving it for months after a 5 year hiatus. I honestly couldn't tell you what made me stop in the first place, but that's in the past now. CRACKAGEDDON!

I don't think I'm allowed to stop playing, not with this much ink in my skin celebrating the game.

I am currently not playing much due to travel, but I'm still on when I can be.  Except for today, today I'm on a lot, due to kicking my own ass over the last 5 days by tons of exercise walking around this rad ass town and never eating a goddamn veggie.  Apparently the body needs more than duck confit, apple tarts, creme brulees and fucktons of wine.  Sonovabitch I hurt.

this game is a nice little 'outlet' for me, to release pent up urges to pretend to be something I'm not for a little while. RP is my escapism. If I have a good storyline going, it's a similar experience as reading fiction novels and it's a form of socializing, which I don't get a lot of offline. I appreciate the smartphone playability also and recommend android users get the blowtorch app to play it if they're interested in trying it. 

There, maybe I helped hook a few more people to the crackageddonpipe.  8)

Actually I think this was a bad move on my part. Get to invested in characters and then when shit meets fan I can get pretty down over it all. Gonna give it some thought.

Mmm.  Yeah.  About that.  We're gonna need pics.  But not here!  In the photos thread.  For posterity.
You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

I've got to find the urge to log in again.
I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.

On the bright side, I was taking a break and was about to quit the game (again) very recently. But I decided to try and get some extra time into my schedule and started playing again after being gone for over a month! Man, I love this game and can't get enough of it. Despite everything that's happened since I began playing back in '12.


I usually take long breaks. What I do these days is start a character when I feel inspired, play until said character's death, then take a break for a few months and play another RP-enforced MUD/MUSH/MOO/whatever until I come up with another good Armageddon character or just really want to play again. This way it makes things more excited. The game will have changed a good amount since my last character, along with a whole new set of characters from other players. I find it's best not to get back into the game immediately. Give yourself time to sever all emotional ties from your previous character first. I often (and I'm sure others do) get attached to my characters and the ones around mine.



So, whenever there is an f-me emoting in the Gaj - Gil will be there. Whenever there is a breed being treated with decency - Gil will be there. Wherever  someone has the audacity of putting meat between two pieces of bread and calling it a sandwich - Gil will be there!


Not to stop them, though. That's probably just me doing those things, so I will technically be there.

Gilgamesh - your friendly, neighborhood shitty lite-RPer here to fuck up your day!








Sorry to see all of you guys go! Hopefully we'll see you once again. I've known a few people that have left for various reasons. I just hope things will return to normal soon and people will come flocking back to this excellent game!

Can add me to this list for the time being.  I have a lot going on at work, and there aren't any 'casual' roles in Armageddon that interest me.

I'm probably coming back from a multi-year break.  I don't like a lot of the flavor-draining changes that have been made, but I have free time and I want to see how things are for a while.

Sort of opposite the thread's purpose, I know.
