Ghoul King! I knew it was that sanctimonious little prick! That wheelchair-excuse-using bastard!

Uuurgh, he's gone? My quest for vengeance, ended, before it even began?

Dude, not cool.

And... Why are you banned? Why are you still speaking? Wait. Rhetoric questions. Don't answer. Irrelevant in the long run.

Bah.

I suppose I'll stick around. For now. -_-

I am still not amused at being badmouthed!

Nothing much's up. Mostly chilling and enjoying being myself. The awesome me, that is. Not the gross and incompetent me, that is.

Of course, that mostly entails playing games and hanging out with friends.

Uh...

I dunno what else to say. Anyone else from the old days around as well? It's been like, ages, you know?

Alar Stormbringer's here as plain old Alar. And I don't know if you remember TheNewHorde from the fanfiction forums but he's here too, doing lots of art stuffs. MoronSonOfBoron and Saurus both lurk fairly consistently. KefkaEatsBabies shows up once in a blue moon. I may be forgetting a few. Oh yeah! Forgotten and Darkest have both shown up a couple times for brief stints of activity. They may be back.

You have no idea how refreshing it is to hear someone call GK a sanctimonious prick!

'Banned' is my user title, not my status. I'm the admin >_>

Anyway, revenge is overrated. What kinds of games, and what kinds of friends?

Huh. Don't remember talking to a lot of these guys before, but yeah, I remember their names. My memory has always been awesome. AndTheNewHorde, huh? I don't remember any of his stories, but I totally remember loving reading them. They were good! Hmm. Same with Saurus and Kefka. Saw them around a lot, read a lot of their posts. MoronSonofBoron sounds awfully familiar...

And sanctimonious prick was the nicest thing I could think of calling that ass.

If I had my way, I would have put out at least ten paragraphs worth of insults and names, but... I dunno if that's allowed. I decided to just ever so slightly push it.

Ahem.

I was 14! Dude went all logical on a 14 years old kid! Like I had the attention span to fight back! Dammit, I can't believe I missed my chance for vengeance. T.T

Err... And nah, it's not overrated. Life's too long. I need stuff to fill my time up with. Yeah.

And I said irrelevant, Flak. :D

Anyhow.

I used to play WoW mostly. Until I hit 60. Then Burning Crusade came out, where I hit 70. Then Wrath came out, and it was 80. I stopped when I realized that once you hit the top, there's nothing left to do. I didn't even bother with raiding because none of those pricks would even bother taking me along. Screw it.

These days, I play console games. Xbox 360 mostly. Sometimes Wii, but usually to play No More Heroes and Desperate Struggles. But mostly Xbox 360, yeah. And what games do I NOT play? Shit, I should be a game reviewer at this point... Actually, I'm playing Two Worlds II at the moment, and it is righteously awesome. I recommend it. The game is massive. Three days into it, and I have just barely begun to get started on the second chapter. The attention to details is... Wow, just wow.

And my friends... Are all idiots.

I'm still the most awesome one out of them all.

When I said friends, I meant acquaintances that I have very little in common with but still hang out with because I like laughing at their petty little problems.

Yeah. I'm pretty much still an ass. Just not incompetent. Like GK said.

That ass. -_-

oh yeah... I did try to write some things with my bad English back then. It's still bad, but it was funny that I was trying to write without knowing much English back then. now I don't write at all, just paints.

I do not recognize your name whatsoever, Sindrowlithicus. Alright, it sound very vaguely familiar, but not enough for me to actually make a connection with a person, or personality, or anything along those lines.

Welcome aboard, I suppose! Your vengeance against GK can be taking his place here. That'll show him, right? Right?

Sin was one of us roleplayers. He tended towards overpowered cliches. But then few of us had any real idea what we were doing back then.

well, you're very welcome to join us Sin. And for some fun, it's nice to doodle stuff. We don't really care whether your a hobbiest, a professional, or just messing around. Feel free to post any drawing, even disturbing stick figures (but censor it please). And you can find everyone's art like Moron and mine in the Artisan's Workshop forum or see some art posts on the home page or just look at the icons (Flak and I draw our own icons).

Hi. ^_^ Long time no talk. Interesting way to say WTF too, my friend.

I could do that but... That would mean me becoming the very thing I hate. So, yeah. No thanks. I dunno, do you guys have like, that pretentious guy that sits in the corner and gives his opinion on games and stuff? Because I could totally, like, do that. Like, because I got all the credientals. Probably. And that's okay, though. I don't actually have a connection with anyone, whatsoever. I like it that way. But thanks for the welcome. ^_^

Flak wrote:But then Sin would become a sanctimonious prick.


I'm a follower of the Subtle-Assholism movement these days, so... I can't be a sanctimonious prick. I'm far too busy being a smartass. :P

And yeah, I remember those days... They sure were fun. Overpowered, yeah, but the amount of carnage I went through, I didn't really care. ^_^ I've mellowed out these days, though. I tend to go for different types of characters now, although if it was for a silly thread with no plot whatsoever or anything, I wouldn't mind busting out an overpowered character. :3 Mostly, I like my characters to be glib and sardonic and all. Basically, the supporting character to the protagonist, his character foil, if we're gonna use story terms.

Yeah, I'm not really into art. I mean, I don't even have a shred of artistic talent, so... Yeah. I'm still more of a story writer myself. Haven't done much writing these days, though. I do still roleplay quite a bit. Just haven't found a decent site yet. T.T But thanks, all the same.

Well, we have precisely one game going on right now: the Wizard Apprentice RPG that I am running. If you are interested and can commit to posting at least once every two days, read the signup sheet and post an apprentice. If I like what I see, I'll work you in somehow.

Hm, guess I could say a few things about myself.

I'm writing from my bed, as I often do (I'm not so fond of desks), and my cat is snarfling in his sleep, by my side. His name is Alyosha (after the Karamazov), and he's a tux cat, about a year old. I like to call him Yosh, or Yoshkin Kot...

I get in weird moody states unless I'm constantly doing something, so I make sure to always have a number of activities going at any given time. These have included: martial arts, fireknife, reading, writing, drawing, origami, parkour, biking, music-making (I play violin, hurdy-gurdy, guitar and pennywhistle mostly... but have recently started to learn the bass guitar, and I love to sing), studying (history, languages, psychology, and anything that captures my interest), and cooking. I mostly think of myself as a dabbler, though one day I hope to attend graduate school in Neuroscience (of language or vision, specifically involving brain-imaging).

My favorite vegetable is artichoke, favorite fruit is mango, and earl grey is probably my favorite tea (though I'm also quite fond of lapsang souchong, licorice, and jasmine)... Yup. That about covers it.
