Mind if I pull up a chair and join in?
« on: December 29, 2008, 08:41:43 AM »
Quote
Some people collect bowling trophies, some rebuild cars in their driveway, and some try not to miss a single televised moment of football.

I dream up fantasy worlds.
-Ed Greenwood - Introduction to Castlemourn

Have you ever read a sentence and then had a personal revelation?  Like someone pulled back a curtain and you were suddenly looking at mirror that reflected not just your appearance, but what's going on in your head?

Well that quote pretty much sums me up.  Except for the football (and hockey) part.  :woot:

I'm a long time gamer (Charter Grognard) with a passion for the hobby and the need to play on at least a semi-regular basis to keep my sanity.  I used to lurk a lot but now I've decided to add my thoughts, writing, ideas and incoherent ramblings to the great collection you've already got.

I guess that's it for now.

Howdy and yo.

Sanity is a rare commodity here though.

Welcome, Khairn, to the Citadel!

You are right about the sanity bit, Scras.

There is sanity to be had at all?  Right! new members until we draw it out of them and consume it.

We like lurkers that turn into contributors!

I am the only bastion of sanity in here, though.

 Actually, I think it was the flying monkeys more than us... At least, I like to think it was the flying monkeys.

That *is* an awesome quote. Somtimes I feel left out not talking all the college football and stuff...but then I think...what the hell use is knowing all that crap?? And I go back to coding and jotting down ideas.

Also love when the Barbarian Horde converts to a registered member!

Begin the ritual! Begin the ritual!

Prepare the altar, alert the high priestess...

Oh... Hi Khairn!

Please make yourself at home while we carry out the initial sacrifices.
