Ah man. I went super MIA after saying I came back from being MIA. It's been weird. I've lived a little bit too much both off and on the internet.

I really do miss having games with a constant environment to play within.

People like Misery and Fragmaster01 and the EE system. I just never considered coming back because in part honestly I felt ashamed for having abandoned this place for different horizons presented, but recently I've discovered why this community and the ideal of constantly playing these games or coming up with characters whether memes or not was a driving force behind my existence.

The hatred of disappearing sentiment is something I can get behind because this community was just so well fleshed in the mechanics of games beyond just simply world-building that being a player felt like a privilege.

I tried to create a system here as well and fell behind.

I've got a few things to optimize in my personal life in order to be able to participate more than in the memey closed caption areas and palindrome threads, and once that's fully handled I more than feel the intention to come back and just enjoy the wonder that is presented with the people in this community.

I really hope they incorporated my idea of playable eidolons which were essentially in my mind soul-captured ghosts within the basis of stuffed animals that could use mind control on a host and essentially use their skills to their advantage and move from host to host.

I wasn't exactly super influential, but regardless, this place I remember now, was just a wonder and solace in the shared joy of playing and creating.

I miss this.

No discussing politics or understanding of scientific ideas or even becoming a rich demagogue or demigod could fill the void of just roleplaying and storytelling with you guys or even making ideas in the application threads.

I think I've grown decently enough to try even more to impress as well.

I'm gonna try to be more active here, and make my mark as that guy with 10k posts and unmatching RPXP B)

Thanks for not dying in my time away.

Well, it's been about a month and I'm involved in two games now. So I guess it's worth commenting in here that I'm back. I've missed this place.

Sure is strange to see all the new reds, though. And sure is strange to see so many of the older reds gone. I miss me some Sour-Krowout.

It's not just you. I don't know what they were thinking hiring some of these idjits, the last couple years.

Well, they hired me at one point, so the bar's not all that high, clearly! And that Axeman character... yeesh... Looking around, you lot seem to be doing a great job with the community. There are tons of fun activities outside of gaming, and it still feels vibrant to me.

What's *really* strange to me is to see Hugga as a staff member now. He was a pillar of the community before I ever got here, with thousands of posts. Seemed like an eternity that he was around GMing great games. I figured that if he had wanted to be a mod, he would have done it long before. But maybe he just finally decided he was interested.

This isnít the first time Iíve left the site wordlessly and tried to come back. Hopefully though, itís the last. I keep going thorugh this cycle where I come back to the site, stay active for a bit, but then get hit with life. Iíll put off posting to focus on schoolwork, forget to post later, find its been two or three weeks since I posted, feel guilty, avoid the site, and then try what Iím doing now a few months later.

Honestly, I hate that I do this. Thereís something about this site, and the community thatís grown here. Itís hard not to feel incredibly guilty for leaving. Itís such a close-knit, positive community, and I love it. Itís a little friendly oasis in the dumpster fire that is the internet. I love it here, and I hate that I keep doing this.

I know Iím not the most influential person, but Iíve run several games, played in countless others, and even started to help out with the NPSGs for a while. Each time I left, I left a game without a Dm, or disappointed party members, or even worse, left a new playerís game unfinished. Each time the latter happened, Sev was there to take over, and I really just want to thank him for that.

More importantly, Iím sick of that cycle. Iím going to try and be more active, more consistently. To all the games Iíve leftÖ Iím sorry. I plan to do better this time, and hopefully, Iím able to give back in the form of new games, and if theyíll have me again, by helping introduce people to this wonderful community via the NPSGs again.

SoÖ sorry, and Iím back.

Not an official Mia right now, but if circumstances get worse it might be...

Long story short, I'm currently doing college and working a full time job on top of helping my ailing mother, so I've as of lately had to put the site on back burner. Started with being less active on discord, to only checking the site once a day, to not being on discord and now barely being able to check the site 2 or 3 times a week.

Ultimately I'd rather not leave the site entirely but should circumstances get worse I might have to.

If my sporadic posting rate becomes too much of a drag on games I'm in, I implore my GMs to send me a message to hurry me up or to npc me if needed, no hard feelings at all.

Regardless of the fact, I hope things speed up on my end so I can speed it up on here as well. I'll do my best to update before I officially go missing or have to take at least a week off, and here and my signature is where you'll find it.

Thank you everyone for your seemingly unending patience.

Edit 07/05/18: I've now successfully moved back into my parent's house out of my first semester of college, and will have an easier time managing my time now that summer has hit. My best bet will be starting to be more active on site either tomorrow or the day after, but I should be posting again soon.

Yet again, thank you to everyone for being so patient with me.

Hey all. Life has been hitting me pretty hard, and I've found that my free time has mostly disappeared. The last straw was my mother in-law getting sick, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I expect things should get more manageable in a few months, but I felt it was best to put the notice here, in an attempt to be fair. I hope things get better sooner, rather than later, but I fully expect to return.

I've been lurking more and more. I've posted a few poems and a short snippet of a story in the Library, link in the sig. I'm looking to play a slow solo game with a strong story line and strenuous character development. My only concern is a slow start and a serious lack of time might cause an instant stall to my most minimal return. I just need some gaming in my life.

Solo games are good for uneven RPG time. Each person moves at their own speed. I've read your poems and probably should've said something, sorry. It's great to have somebody famous posting in the little-used Library.

If I might offer a suggestion, find someone willing to run a game where your PC wakes up on the floor somewhere with no memory of who they are or what they were/are doing. It's heavy on the chardev for current as well as past, but it comes at you in different ways than the average storyline, because you only get flashbacks'-worth plot to go on, and what you encounter around you. It's fun, and might be a bit of a change.

Thanks Aethera! I'll see what pops up. I can't muster the time to make running a game feasible so I'll hope on someone else's vast creativity.

The library's not dead! A bit quiet? Yes, perhaps.

I agree a solo game sounds like a good solution for that situation. The most fun rp I've had on the site overall was as a player in a solo... I was really feeling it. Good times! Let me know if I can help!

The library just needs... I dunno. There are a few that use it, but I don't think they get a lot of feedback, so most of them peter out.

Four years ago my life fell apart. In that time I've moved cross country twice left an abusive relationship, switched careers, and completed a degree. I don't think I left an active game. I'm fairly sure my game dissolved due to player attrition during all that stress and change. But if I did I'm sorry.

I'm not sure if anybody on here remembers me. I'm pretty sure anybody I used to RP with is gone. But I'm back now and I'm very down to try to work with this great group again.

Hey, there's a whole thread for this, that will save me a minute...

Hello everyone. Iíd like to take a moment to apologize for my recent and somewhat long term disappearance. Unfortunately, I am among many souls who suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder. Most of the days I have it under control with medication, but every once in a while an episode flares up. Over the Easter holiday, I fell under a really bad one. To spare you all the details, Iíve been away from most of the online world just getting things together and rebuilding bridges. Iíve been shifting back into some of my online hangouts slowly but surely, and today marks my glorious return here.

To my players:

For those of you who have stuck around I would like to give a heartfelt thank you. Obviously my previous games will be closed out; however I will be here as long as I am able presenting other stories that have percolated in my magical brain over the years. I hope to see you there.

To my GMS:

So to you, the GMs of the games I unfortunately dropped on the hiatus, I would like to say Iím sorry. I understand fully whatever decisions you had to make regarding NPCing or just flat out killing off my characters. Such is the duty of the GM, and trust me there will be more where they came from.
