Re: A fond farewell

Is it really me, if I'm not just a little late? It's unfortunate how much time seems to be catching so many of us lately. I do hope we can continue to be pals - I'll try to do better about reaching out.

You were always a sight to see - keep knocking over words just the way you do.

Re: Afterdark

“You can’t just ask an artist you don’t know to show you his work.” August wilted, for the moment, after being accosted. That’s not to say that the precedent hadn’t been set in the past – August often overstepped the bounds of normal exchange, but perhaps he had convinced himself that in this strang...

Re: Thanks For All The Fish

Even with my own hiatus, I'll be sad to see you go. I'll try to keep in touch on Skype, but you know that I tend to be irregular at the very best. Seems like everyone is going their own way these days. I doubt I'll leave you alone for too long. https://animetree.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/wrl-depar...

Re: Urthsong: Ballad of Storms

"Aye," The dwarf agrees, kicking the corpse of one of the skaven. "The name is Rogi, from the Rockjaw clan. Caraveneer by trade. I learned to fight on the road. Not too bad with a few weapons, but prefer my hands usually. I know what they are capable of." Rogi stands up a bit taller, adding maybe an...

Short post is up. I'm prone to navel gazing a bit with August, so I try not to make it too excruciating if that explains the brevity, haha.

Re: Afterdark

For the most part, August returned to his routine. His eyes grew wide and he took a few steps away from the rest of his comrades. Not as a gesture to imply or gain distance, but so that he could more easily see around them. He drew more interested to the visitor, and to the Wolf. He figured the Wol...

Re: Afterdark OOC - Open/Accepting

Sorry about the delay, should be up tomorrow or the day after. Spent all day Friday fighting with the financial aid office on-campus, and now my dog isn't eating food and I spent all weekend trying to convince a vet to see her sooner rather than later.

Re: Initiating Conversation Sequence

Hello there! I don't have any glaring similarities to cleverly comment on, and for the most part others have beat me to the necessary hellos and how do you dos, so I guess I'll just give you a very energetic, "Welcome!" :)

Re: Urthsong: Ballad of Storms

The three remaining skaven fell on Daye like a wave, trying to harm the human in any way they thought conceivable. A brief, fleeting safety fell on him. His day-old wound pulsed as a reminder. The human ran one of the rat-men through with her sword and Rogi pressed for another attack while they wer...

Re: Afterdark

If the days before it had been confusing or strange, then the day of departure was the perfect capstone to August’s understanding of Afterdark. The addition of several party members, who brought with them new, particular descriptors, like pudgy, or in the case of Cole, there was something similar to...

Re: What annoyed you today?

My dog is getting too old to go down the stairs as quickly as she did, so I had to catch her when she slipped. Annoying and scary, two for one.
