And four is just outright too damned many. This is my fourth blog post, here, ironically, because I am so bad at keeping OOC blogs. There's just not enough to put in them, really, in my opinion. This is also my last blog post, here. So we don't have to worry about five, six, or seven, for sure.

It's been.. an interesting ride, for sure.

Played for a little while on my original character Quonar, had some fun on him. It was.. interesting... being both a new player and a Constable. Let's just say Quonar died a lot. *tips his hat to the various criminals*

Most of you probably know me from Flaern, though.

I've played him almost religiously since then, really. Oddly enough, it started out as a newbie's bet that he could make a character that could and would kill another character, Bjar, if given the chance, Bjar's only defense being his silver tongue.

He traveled some dark paths, though, which led to interesting conflicts and RP. Thanks to Abel, Aanson, The Fury, and Acerbe for making that little segment of Flaern's story very involving, especially since I was still pretty much a newbie at that point.

Those dark paths eventually led to him getting banished from Telantha. Oh noez! Let me tell you: THAT WAS THE MOST BORING THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO ME. ARGH OMG I COULD NOT STAND IT! NO ONE WAS OUT THERE. Well, except for the crazy guy with fire. But that was no fun sad.gif *shakes a fist at the crazy fire guy* I wasn't even allowed to have a goat farm. How depressing.

Courtesy of one individual needing his expertise, Flaern managed to redeem himself and get back to the RP hot spots. Following that, various RP reasoning led him to try impressing the Guard Captain by proving himself useful. Yay, demon killing. (Boo, boring combat.) I was highly amused at the time I laid about 15 demon corpses out in the room just south of the southern gate.

Somewhere around this phase, is when I got asked to be a staff member. Mina and Cern had both just come back from a vacation, and the game had been soooo slow because only Gordon (aka Aamanus in siegian form,) was around to handle things. So they needed more people.

That was a different experience, for sure. Worth the trouble it came with, I think, in the end. Some of you hated me, some of you loved me, some of you didn't care, but I tried to be fair and kind and all that jazz, whenever I could (almost always.) I kind of took Flaern's RP slower while I was Hyperion, mainly so no one suspected who I was, and/or scream staff abuse. I had a hand in a few smaller events, in addition to disciplining/policing things, but the only event I ran on my own was the Western Outpost battle (because none of the other staff was around at the time / willing to help for me. :/) From what I remember, everyone present enjoyed it, so I'm glad it didn't suck completely. That was in... September 06, I think? After that, both my RP, and general activity, kind of slowed a little. Summer fading away, and the like.

Quit as Hyperion October 7, due to differences with other staff members. (*cough* Language code.. *cough* Not understanding own game..) Afterwards, I felt a lot more liberated to RP as I wished, without fear of people going, "omg staff powahz!" There was much scheming, much plotting, and much fun RP all around. Those of you who were hanging around me at the time had a lot of fun, I hope!

Had a slight distraction in the form of a new character, though I honestly feel like I let down staff by not playing them very much after my initial surge of RP. Some of you'll recognise the name. wink.gif This character's been fun too, though was soo much harder for me to get into than Flaern

In... december 06, I think, is when the Emperor overthrew the King. With it, a lot of Flaern's goals were effected, and I knew even then that I was going to try to become a Noble. After that, it was just a matter of how, why, and who (to get to back me up.) Thankfully, due to the loads of past RP, it wasn't hard to get a faithful following. Thus began my term as noble, if you can call it that. It was gratifying, I got to help a lot of things get up off the ground, helped a lot of people, and also got to fulfill some smaller goals of mine. I found it constraining, however, at the same time, due to issues with the game and how the staff want to handle players requiring staff help to power large influences under the control of said player.

Was hired again as a builder, mainly due to my promise to help if asked, because I love this game.

I helped a little with showing the other siegians how to do some things, since I already knew the ropes, and did various small and large building projects. I was just getting started on Armour in Enoch's stead, however, when certain conflicts arose.

You guys have probably heard about my argument with Cern, but if not, I'm not elaborating here. I'll leave it at 'We don't agree.' After some consideration, and a long while to weigh the pros and cons, I've decided that's going to be the end of my SS history. So I'd like to wish you all good luck, and encourage you to have fun. That's what the game's all about anyways, right? My characters will have ICly disappeared without a trace, for good or worse. Those of you who feel like I may be hanging you out to dry.. I'm sorry, but this game ISN'T fun for me anymore, so there's little reason for me to stay. I hope you continue to have fun, but if not, I'll understand. And I apologise.

So, yeah. Don't expect to see me 'round anymore, except for perhaps obsessively reading the forums (old habits die hard, after all.) If you want to see what happens to my characters, feel free to follow their personal blogs, Flaern's which is located on the blogroller thingy on the website. The end of my play on SS isn't the end of their tales, thankfully.

You have 475202 total RPP. <--- I'm still made of pure awesome sauce. Bet it take any of you at least two months to beat me! wink.gif

You know a guy's serious when he doesn't throw around a single Q-word.


I guess you might have used "quit."

Kill a man, and you are a murderer.
Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror.
Kill everyone, and you are a god.
This is the path that I have chosen.
In the end, you're always alone.
There are no excuses for your actions.

Doesn't the fight for survival also justify theft?
In self defence, anything goes.

*sigh* Will miss you Q. Dunno what it was all about, but good luck in whatever you do from here.
