Hey guys. Long time no see. Hope everyone's doing well.
Probably shouldn't get too used to seeing me around, though. My absence here on Paizo has been pretty intentional after the first little bit of just not having the time to keep up. Between certain people's behaviors and certain unsettling trends in staff activity I finally hit the threshold point of "this place has changed too much for the worse" several months ago, hence my departure.
Steam (axioanarchist) or Skype (axi0anarchist) are probably the best places to get in touch with me. Barring that, over on GITP as EdgeOfOblivion.
It's been an experience over the years. Certainly there'll be things I'll miss. But I fear that time has come and gone.
Best of luck to all of you, and thank you for all you've done.

This is for Sun and Moon, the brand-new Generation 7, which will be released this November.
The only thing we know about it at all thus far is the three starters, the two legendaries near the end of the video (the sun lion and the moon hawk), and the name of the region and that it's heavily based on Hawaii.
Everything else is still up for speculation until the next release of info.
"The world of Dark Souls is caught in an endless cycle of Fire and Dark, and each game takes place in the final days of a dwindling Age of Fire. Someone must either link the Fire to continue postponing the inevitable, or just toss it all in and get a Dark Age going. Sort of like the choice between a Clinton and Trump Presidency."

And by those younger players who've come to gaming from anime or other non-classic genres.
Yep, this is me. Techno-fantasy has been my thing since the start - it was video games that got me into gaming and fantasy rather than books, playing the heavily-tech-focused Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI was what got me into the fantasy/sci-fi genre in the first place, and is generally the sort of feel I prefer in my games; my group's homebrew world greatly reflects this, with a lot of steampunk and magitek influences and greater acknowledgements of the tech-versus-nature debates and places where the debate has been completely bypassed for a blending of the two from day one, and the comparisons between the two approaches.
I coulda told you that.
Oh! RPG! is on sale on Steam right now, and, having played the first chapter alone, I can tell you all: it's worth it, if you can get it! It's... surprisingly good! There are funy parts, and intriguing parts, and compelling parts, too. I've only done the first cahpter, but it's definitely worth the (current) two-dollar price tag.
Even I can afford that!

That could potentially be pretty cool - just so long as they stick to toys. I don't understand why there need to be all these LEGO-fied computer games and movies. It's like they think the distinctive "LEGO man" physique somehow adds something to Batman, Harry Potter, Darth Vader, Iron Man, etc etc etc in intangible media where they don't NEED to be given stumpy legs, rigid crescents for hands, and heads shaped like Yankee Candles. <--- Oh, THERE'S your next joint-marketing venture!
The fact that the games are just plain silly fun?
Yeah Scint is Catholic so it's reactionary for her.
Though she tells me that the wording has changed slightly in some recent years.

So last night I had what has to be one of the most surreal yet awesome experiences I've ever had in NWN.
My Dragonborn Paladin and ex-Blackguard of Tiamat finally traveled back home to see her birth family for the first time since her change of faiths, after a rather insistent invitation from her priestess mother and assassin brother that included a vague but pointed threat toward one of her closest friends' children. Upon arriving she was greeted in a semi-friendly manner by her father and sister and invited to dinner, but as soon as her mother showed up, the sniping began.
And for clarification, this is the 3.5 version of Dragonborn, where they're adopted children of Bahamut literally reborn in his image (the would-be petitioner actually builds a ceramic egg filled with incense and alchemical fluids and seals themselves inside for the metamorphosis) and sworn to fight on his side in his endless war against Tiamat, rather than simply a draconic-descended race of humanoids as they are in 4 and 5e.
So you have a devoted servant of Bahamut trading passive-aggressive barbs with a high-level cleric of Tiamat about how the former needs to come home and rejoin the clan and had so much potential, while their father/husband and sister/daughter are having a perfectly normal conversation about "where have you been", "heard you got married", "what would you like to drink", "does anyone wants some potatoes", "you haven't touched your asparagus" at the same time.

But seriously: My understanding's always been that "..." is for the middle of a statement, while "...." is when it's at the end (essentially, one of them is the period).
This. The ellipsis, regardless of location, is simply three dots. Other punctuation is added as is appropriate for its place in the sentence. So if the ellipsis comes before a break, ..., or ...; would be appropriate, depending on the type of break. At the end, .... (ellipsis plus period) is appropriate.
On the one hand, I wouldn't have met or have maintained contact with almost all of my friends without the Internet.
On the other, 90% of my frustrations in life come with dealing with certain people who I would never have encountered if it weren't for the Internet.
On the gripping hand, I would be incredibly, incredibly bored without it. So advantage, Internet. But just barely.

I just ignore them as is. Having a bunch of brothers I've gotten good at ignoring helps I think. :-)
This is not a talent I possess. I recognize this and have developed other strategies to compensate. Like taking advantage of the numerous offered mechanical aids to keep troublemakers from getting my attention.
The funny thing is, when I've gotten pulled into closed forums via links or other ways, I too find the place exactly as I remember it.
And that's all the reminder I need to keep them closed.
I don't have the time these days to waste on people who ruin my mood, so rather than attempt to debate with them I simply choose to put them on ignore and remove the effect they have on my experience. I have better things to do with my life these days than let my mood be soured by some idiot on the internet.

Yeah I've got about ten on mine. Never counted up how many forums I have closed, but at this point I'm pretty tempted to close everything except OTD and the individual AP forums.
