Re: Been a long time.
Formerly Known as Symbol:
Hey all just opted to check in to see what was new and see if this sight was still here. Last time I logged in i think was about 9 years ago.


Well, take comfort that you're not the only one to to do that (I think it took me eight years from my initial sign-in to actually field a game...)

Maybe we should start a club?

Nah!  Just dive in and get you some!

Re: Been a long time.
Yes, welcome back.  It has, indeed, been a little while.

This still exists, by the way: http://arcadia.net/Cruinne/Peeps/  (though it hasn't been updated since cruinne went to jail*).


*This is just a joke.  There's no jail in the world that could hold her.  Or would want her.

Re: Been a long time.
It hasn't been updated since 2012... so it hasn't really been mentioned much since then.  cruinne got too busy with RL stuff, so there wasn't really anybody to run it any more.

Re: Been a long time.
I wondered if she was still around...that's a name I haven't seen in a long time, in any of the public forums (or anywhere else on RPOL, for that matter...)

Re: Been a long time.
Was gonna be my next question actually.
Good to see Bigbad Ron still active.

Is there any of the old gang still left around?
And how active is the sight?

I think many of the old gang are still active to one degree or another.

The site itself seems pretty active to me.  It's ticking along well.

I think we all come back eventually (Gone 8? Back last year). ^_^ Community Chat seems to have slowed a bit with the interaction that I remember having, but I believe most folks are lurking about somewhere. Welcome  back!

Re: Been a long time.
::chuckles:: I didn't even know  we had this . I  stubbled on it  when I was checking  for those  who are banned, because   we lost a  really good poster/RPer in my space game, right about the time  the  CA fires  started last year.

 we still haven't heard  from teh layer?...Anyway..saw the chats, sometimes  I  add my 2  cents.

Yeah, lost a player from a muck I play during those fires too. :(  I like to think that they're okay and will return once their life gets back to normal.  But I know that life is never normal after that.

Re: Been a long time.
Saddly pdboddy,  I have seen  pics on the news  feed of  my   Xfinity..they showed Charles  Schuche's  neighborhood, at that  time ( late August 17) the fire  had  just stoped by the Museum.

 they showed    every single  building  burned down..flat. they said   most of the Bones of  people trapped  were  ashed  as well.

 My space game has  some damn good players..  we get close over OOC, sharing vbents  and good stories...we lost a guy to cancer, that we only know, cause his sister  Emailed me, because me and  him would   talk about the game, for his backround... we lost another to Diabetes , but  it isn't confirmed, just somethign  he said be fore he went dark.

 The Player  from CA?.. shared    honeymoon picks, ran three charcters ( which I rarely let  folks have more then 2),,and just 'poof" gone... they lived in CA.

Re: Been a long time.
Haven't been here in years. I wasn't expecting to see a post on the front page of general talking about my exact situation.

Then I saw that the last post was made about a month ago... Looks like we're all doing our own thing now.

Re: Been a long time.
I have been here a while, it wasn't  until a coupel years ago  I realized we could post here.

This is still, in my view , the best gaming site  around.

Re: Been a long time.
Okaeri-nasai! (Welcome back!)

I did the same thing a while back, signed up, rapidly outstripped my free time, and had to let my account lay doggo for far too long.

Get back in there and join the melee!
