Hey spiderweb people. I was idling around on the internet and decided that coming back and maybe playing some of the games over the summer might be a good idea, since i've been bored lately. You may remember me under the older pseudonyms of ørangutan, or Jelly. You may well not. I don't really care; I probably won't be much of a presence here anyway, like I ever really was. But all's good.

Can somebody catch me up on any major news over the past year or so, or however long it's been since I've last been here (it's probably less than a year, but I genuinely can't remember)? I still haven't played Avernum 4... maybe I should try that out. Something to do! Hooray! :D

I remember the name; am I right in recalling that you had a fondness for classical music? That's about all I remember. Welcome back, from a not-very-active member.

As for major news, eh. Nothing big. Members come and go. Games get released. The usual.

Welcome back. I'm sorry, but I don't remember you under any of those names, though ørangutan rings a very faint bell...

Hey, I definitely remember ørangutan. Welcome back! I'm going to pass off the job of summarizing the last year of Spiderweb history to someone with more time on their hands.

no, sorry!

Well, good to know somebody remembers the name, anyway. Didn't expect much. I've changed it because I go by finlay on other parts of t'internet, and it's my first name.

Anyway... what's the "social scene" like here? Worth staying around in a non-lurker state for? Who is everybody, anyway? I remember a lot of the "bigger" names, like the ones who create loads of scenarios and have enormous post-counts, but anyway... Who's cool, who's not cool, who's good, who's evil, who likes marmalade, who's old, who's young, who's wise, who posts too much, who's gay, who's loud, who's quiet, who's got a mental disorder, who's crazy, who's stupid, who's childish, who's simply worth mentioning? Just wondering! ;)

I suppose that the answers to all that depends on who you ask. But as to the second question, I will say that the board could always use a little livening up.

And Dikiyoba is Dikiyoba. Or something like that, anyway.

The advantage of range weapons over melee type. Of course it still needs to do sufficient damage before your opponent can close with you.

Um...

I'm Thralni. I think. But that is completely uncertain. Actually, I think that my name is probably the right name, but you never know, do you. I mean, with Imban, who is everyone, I just don't know.

By the way, I am obsessed with chickens. All hail the Almighty chicken Gods, though they are on vacation now. Not that that has to so with anything.

So. Welcome back. I don't know you. I think.

Maybe I should just shut up? And yes, I'm bored.

Yo, I have no idea who I am right now but I'm sure some clicking around will tell you who I am. Then you can tell me. Or something. I'm out to play some Brad Sucks and sit around.

Hi welcome back. I'm WKS, some believe that it stands for Weaponified Kama Sutra, but as of yet, this is unsubstantiated.

Come on *i, you don't think I would knowingly and willfully flagrantly violate the Code of Conduct with the express purpose of destroying a thread and undermining the board twice, do you?

Don't forget that Dintiradan is wearing a helmet, so it's hard to knock him unconscious.

Dikiyoba doesn't understand why Nicothodes and Dintiradan don't compromise. Nicothodes can be acutely evil, and Dintiradan can be the most evel.

Edit: Added quote.
