Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
Now I wish I had a nice little story written up, on some floral stationary. Buuut I don't... raincheck!

I haven't been around in ages but stopped in on a few threads here and there, and managed to end up in the Forum Game archives. And damn it makes me happy to see those, the turns, the videos (gosh those videos <3), and to think of the fun and frustration we had during them.

So while we all might be a good four years older and wiser, four years of ups and downs. These memories and the ability to reminisce really make everything melt away.

--------------

I liked the games, wanted to share that damn it was fun and these several years later, makes me so incredibly happy to look back on them. When is the next game starting?  :beamz:

Spoiler:
Love your work Spoon, it's about time I updated my files and took WoD for another spin

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
I am running a forum game that you might be interested in. Look in the Arts and Talents forum.

Shivans view most other species the way we view infectious diseases. They think they are doing good by curing the universe of them. After all, no one mourns the fate of smallpox.

I've gone back into the old forum game threads numerous times since it ended. I'm sure I'll continue to do so. :)

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
Glad to hear the game left a few good memories.

Technically I don't really have any excuse for not starting forum game. Before it was because I just wanted to concentrate all my creative energy on finishing episode 2 and well, that's done now, so.
I guess the question is more if there is still any interest, HLP overall has slowed down a lot over these past few years.

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
You don't necessarily need as many players as you've had before. For instance I'm sure I'd be able to run the CRF all by myself if that's what it took. But since Veers made the thread, I'm guessing I'd have at least one fellow CRF player with me. But all being well I'll be in if you do the next game. :)

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
It was so nice in the test game (even though I kept pissing people off with eratic behavior), so I launched a Tribute Game in Stellaris based on the info.

I still have the kits for the CRF, DD, UGC and SU - and I had one CSA and the Nodera ready to go but then Episode 2 happened and I have to get back to those. As they are stored in an easy to edit file - to would be a triffle to share.

I actually found, the other day, that I still have my notes from this lying around, so... I would probably be interested.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".

<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
I'll add a poll to gauge interest. With no promises made.  (I'm Hijacking your thread, Veers :P )

Hah, neat. I don't remember seeing that before. (That's not a thread I really keep tabs on)

I actually found, the other day, that I still have my notes from this lying around, so... I would probably be interested.
Also neat.

Vote cast. :)

 
Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
Would the other option mean to get WoD3 a week or so earlier or just that there is no forum game?

It wouldn't be one of my threads if it was not hijacked.

Also, vote cast as CRF obviously. But I can fill out other roles.

Only by one now. Looks like the DD band is back together, unless someone new voted DD.

Well said. A true Knight knows that his duty to his Lady and country is only fulfilled when he is victorious or when he is dead. That it is not when his country prospers but when it declines that it needs his life the most. And if he has to give his life in service to that, he will do so. Gladly.

Having laid bare their sinner's soul in Vigil and Confession, a true Knight enters a holy covenant to safeguard the First Principles they hold dear.
In their service of these ideals, they will be pious before God, fight without fail against any adversaries, and remain gallant in the shadow of death.
It is a bond no vicissitude of fate may dissolve, nor is for any mortal law to command.

Re: Reminiscing: A WoD Tale
Since I count myself a fiercely patriotic Earther, The Iron Wall of Humanity it is, I suppose. Meanwhile, anyone is welcome to join the aforementioned other forum game ;) we can use some more hands in the Shivan-shooting department.
