Eco

I've been playing Eco lately, it's still in alpha but is available on Steam. The best I can describe it is as a prettier Minecraft with statistics and goals like Sim City, with strategic and research goals like Civ. It is best played as multiplayer, and players can host their own server or join some...

Re: Cross-game Character Consistency?

I usually make up a new name to go along with the naming conventions of the new character race. The RP character themselves is generally inspired by another character in the respects that they would react to the same situation in a similar way, or have the same general interests or background.

Re: [WSO] WildStar Online

I logged into this game for the first time in a couple years. It seems they've fixed some of the class balance issues and the house decorating in it is just stunning. Still quite a healthy rp population, I signed into a discord rp chat room the other day that had over 200 roleplayers from the same s...

Just a heads up that free booster packs were still provided for August, I just logged into the standalone LON program and claimed mine.

Re: Slings and Arrows

I'm living in a very small hotel room alone with the babies for the next month while my husband works to repair the wildfire damage. It's going to be a long time before my life has any sort of normalcy again. To those I played with, don't expect me to be around much for a few months.

Re: Name A Thing That Made You Happy

We've been evacuated for a couple weeks now with no return date in site, but this whole crisis has really pulled my mate and I and our 2 sons closer in love.

We were wed quietly in my mother's backyard on Saturday. It was perfect.

Re: Keep Me in Your Thoughts ...

Thank you all for your support and offers of help. My house is still standing, however there are still fires all over the city and this could change with a gust of wind. In addition, we can't be certain what will be left after smoke damage and potential looting. It will be weeks or months before we ...

Re: Keep Me in Your Thoughts ...

We are safe in a hotel just outside Edmonton. The fires are expected to be much worse today as it is hotter and there are 50km/hr winds. We do have renters insurance and we have mentally prepared ourselves to peacefully say goodbye to our things and replace them. It was a terrifying trip out. 80,000...

Re: Slings and Arrows

It definitely wasn't directed to anyone in game, I wouldn't do that here. It's a pretty ridiculous situation where someone made specific promises that they flaked on.
I haven't been online much myself, I'll catch you soon.

Re: Slings and Arrows

To people who casually offer their support, their ear, and their friendship, but when you actually try to make contact they ignore you for days until you give up. Those who toss around trite platitudes are generally selfish sacks of shit.

I feel the same way Morenin. It's almost like there's no point bringing my problems up because they'll just be eclipsed by the rest of the conversation. And that makes things worse.

Re: Rest in Peace Kirath, Zhent, Rualian

I've known Kirath for a few years and through a few guilds, he was unfailingly kind and genuine, and every interaction with him left me with a smile on my face.

This is a great loss to the world, he was a rare and special person.

I've been told I'm in preterm labor with the twins at 33 weeks, having regular painful contractions and a positive FFN test which means there is a high likelihood I will deliver within the next two weeks. I'm at home waiting for things to progress right now, cross your fingers for me that my babies ...

One of my babies appears to have a condition that requires major surgery, and this condition also indicates there is a significant chance that the child has Cystic Fibrosis.
