Despite their not doing so, we ran a check of the logs for the entire -year-. Nothing returned, in any fashion, for a staff member using the OOC command as was presented. All keywords, all staff members, all rooms - Notta.

Should there be something yet shared or told in this accusation that would allow us to confirm it - I'd love to hear it.

You're actually a staff that I trust, so if you say that you looked into it and it didn't bring back anything, I believe it.

I think that person was going to shoot you a staff complain after work, but I think Boog scared them away from playing on Armageddon.

Maybe that person's partner, if they recognize the scene, can step forward and shed some light, too.

Also, is Halasturd back on staff?!  ;D I haven't been Halasturd'ed since Age of Conan.

Halaster is indeed back on staff.  We should all be very very scared.

So this French police officer lady was stabbed EXACTLY a week minus four hours after I was nearly killed in a similar hate / "religion" motivated attack last week.

Being powerful and female is not a crime. Being secular is not a crime.

If any of you personally believe in God, please tell your fellow followers to stop acting like goblins from Lord of the Rings (not even Uruk Hai, shitty low wis/str/agi/endu goblins).

These bigots are so weak they have to use weapons on unarmed females to boot, LMFAO.

If a pathetic man in three tons of steel couldn't kill me or slow me down for more than a few days, I am confident in and proud of my world view. But my fellow badasses who happened to be born female and independent minded: stay alert.

Damn, it's really getting hard to -not- be playing Arm lately. I don't know how much longer my willpower can take this.

Well, stop letting your willpower win, sucker. Give in to the sands, you Armer, you.

I think I'm the only player who isn't on staff.

(I don't know what a Project Storyteller is but I like that it sounds like there's so many projects being worked on that they need someone to manage it all)

We should start our own mud, where they actually pick -me- for their northern secret roles!

I'll get that stupid gate open with or without staff assistance, starting... Now!

Is there a sub-genre in fiction where stories are told in second person and like how they are told in tabletop rpgs (and here too)?

I'm not thinking of Lit RPG though.

We could always roll up another pair of blue-tattooed tribals :D
Greb - To scavenge, forage, and if Whira is with you, loot the dead.
Grebber - One who grebs.

This isn't a genre as much as a point-of-view choice.  There are a couple of famous novels or parts of novels told in second person (like chapters in The Fifth Season or The Night Circus).  But mostly it comes up in either fanfiction or choose-your-own-adventure-style books.

Gotcha, but it's fiction and rules can be broken, right?

I now want to build a motorcycle that makes the rider look like he is riding a mantis:
Greb - To scavenge, forage, and if Whira is with you, loot the dead.
Grebber - One who grebs.

What happens if you miss the Mega Apocalypse RPT because the time of it wasn't announced and you're a busy adult who needs announced dates to plan in advance?

Do you...
- Commit Zalanthan Seppuku to preserve your PC's honor.
- Commit Seppuku generally because of all the missin' out.
- Roleplay that you slept through the war for an IC week or two.
- Roleplay that you took an arrow to the knee and were left behind on the ride over.

Asking for a friend who is a busy adult who definitely wants to participate in this RPT but is booked and needs to plan.

Yeah, in this day and age, I need at least a week warning for RPTs. I"m like on the edge of the toilet seat waiting to hear when round 3 is.

I would certainly back this notion of needing OOC prompts for these major moves. We're just taxed too much with RL these days, and so yeah, it's not so organic anymore, and that sucks, but ... we need it, folks.

I'm surprised that that's no rhyme, as a joke, to "who, who?" in English. Because it does work with blue. Like a horse in blue.
