      That is so cool! I haven't seen this edition before, and it's beautiful! I especially love the back cover, and the little dolphins  ^ _ ^

      Yeah, I love how tech-y the back cover looks :D 

  4. Can somebody tell me what the Insanity Clinic for the Moderately Brandofandonitis Afflicted actually is? At first glance it doesn't seem to be a RP; what's going on there?

  5. I have a minor problem. 

    I didn't check my notifications for so long that they now exceed the seven pages available for viewing by a few months. That's what I get, I suppose. 

    If there's anything that someone wants me to respond to or thinks I may have missed that I don't get in the next flurry of posting, or that you just want me to see anyway, link it to me here. Deeply sorry to anyone who I missed completely!

      OH and White Defender, I only tried the second version once but that double damage -_- 

    3. Sherlock Holmes

      Sherlock Holmes

      I can't do path of pain because my keybinds are bad for it (and bad in general but they're what I use for everything else), but I've done the rest. 

      With a lot of them you just gotta fight em a lot, unfortunately. If I were to watch you do them, I could probably tell you where to improve. Trial of the Fool is really hard no matter what you do, unfortunately, but the rest are pretty easy when you know what to do.

      My boy Grimm is probably the easiest of all of them. He only does like five moves and once you (like I have) have beaten Nightmare King Grimm a dozen times, you get these movies pretty down. There's like one response you need for each move, and you just gotta repeat those over and over and hit him as much as you can while playing safely. 

      Failed Champion's biggest challenge is the issue of double damage and the falling rocks. To tell it true, I still don't know how to dodge those things, I just don't get hit by them much anymore. You have to not be too aggressive with Failed Champion, you should stay fairly far from him and not move except when he's coming for you and use those opportunities to hit him. If you use the dream nail during his stagger and hit him after each heal, you can heal back to full and then get full soul. If you have full soul, you can stagger him again without him doing more than one move, then get full soul again to stagger him. Rinse and repeat until he's dead.

      Soul Tyrant is honestly not too hard, I think. The hardest thing about him is that the battle goes on for absolutely forever and you have to focus the whole time. The spinning balls move where he moves from one side of the arena to the other is the hardest to dodge, but you can walk to the farthest part of the arena and stand against the wall, then jump when one of the balls comes for you. Everything else is the same as the first soul guy.

      Grey Prince Zote is the worst.

      With White Defender, you should stay near him and attack whenever he's in range. Use Howling Wraiths when he hops out of the ground to spit dung everywhere. He's not much to deal with as long as you're not being too aggressive.

      I hope all of that's helpful, I can showcase other stuff if you want any more.

      i have since mildly checked it out

      seems very SCP-y

      which is good

      but I already listen to an SCP podcast

      so hopefully this is different enough to keep my interest

      i think it probably will

      What's TMA?

      HOW HAVE I NOT FREAKED OUT TO YOU YET - 

      The Magnus Archives is a horror podcast focusing on a man in an organization recording statements of people who have had encounters with the supernatural, and eventually he and the cast have some encounters of their own. At first it's mostly unconnected spooky stories, then the connections start falling into place and the frame story around the statements picks up, and it's FANTASTIC. I've been obsessed with it, especially since I finished. I highly highly highly recommend it. 

      Danex, I haven't consumed a lot of SCP media, but I do think it'll be interesting enough to keep your attention.

      Oh yeah, this is one of the good ones. Thank you! This fandom is so talented, man. S5 spoilers for those who don't know. 

  10. I've been on this wild roller coaster of a fansite for four years and I ain't about to get off anytime soon. Here until we crash and burn, baby. ...Let's not, though. 

    This time I'm going to save musings for after the Compliments Section. This is so I can put the staff right at the top, as they tend to have limited time, so certain people don't have to ask for a TL;DR anymore. :P I intentionally won't try to mention everyone, or anywhere close actually, but I love every single one of you. 

    First up: @Chaos, as intimidated as I used to be by you, I now think you're wonderful and kind and I really admire you. I enjoy talking with you even when we're both tired and really should be sleeping. Can't wait to read your book someday. 

    @Argent, your humor and measuredness make the world a better place to be in. I'm very glad I get to know you. 

    @LewsTherinTelescope, you're cool and things. Words are hard but talking with you is always Good. You know what I mean. 

    @Otto Didact, one day I am going to meet and hug you and the world will probably be at peace or something. I need to talk to you more because you're amazing and your Dad Vibes are healing. Also, you have possibly the best hair in staff chat. Don't tell Evgeni. ;) 

    @Kaymyth, speaking of parent vibes, you are really cool like so cool and also so loving and also like can I have your autograph someday?? Literally, I mean, I'm gonna be buying your books eventually :D 

    @Paleo, your wizardry is fantastic, but your creations aren't the only thing making you awesome. I appreciate you and your help very much. 

    @Voidus, you and your care and thoughtfulness have never ceased to be there, and I hope I get to talk to you, read your RP, and hear about your campaigns and kiddos being cute forever. 

    @firstRainbowRose and @little wilson, meeting you two at the last Dragonsteel Minicon was so fun and you're both so nice! I'm excited to see you both again. Mi'ch, you are incredible and don't forget it. Kendra, sometimes I just think of you and your offers to talk about stuff and it's...steadying. <3 

    Working with all of you continues to be an honor and a joy, and hanging out with you more so. On to non-staff! 

    IT'S TIME FOR ME TO TALK ABOUT THE BENES. @The Awakened Salad @Tesh ARE YOU GUYS READY TO BE DELUGED IN LOVE? I hope so because you're my best friends and more important to me than all the world. Specific compliments elude me when everything applies, so...reread our platonic wedding vows, kiss your pet, and know that you are the beaniest FAB Squad ever and I will never, ever forget you and our conversations and hangouts. 

    You are skilled, you are loved, you are interesting, and I will always listen to you. May dragons, avi. :wub: 

    To the many people I've met in-person at various times over the past year - I absolutely loved it, for the record, and you are as awesome as sour Skittles. 

    To those I've talked with after absences, I'm overjoyed to speak to you again. Special shoutout to @Ashspren - chatting with you on Discord has been great, Ash! 

    @Robin Sedai, I don't know you super well yet but you're really kind and I hope your life is going well. I always look forward to singing Hamilton with you :P 

    @Wyndlerunner beep. *boops your nose* 

    @#1 Taln Fan, you are awesome and amazing and funny and don't you ever let yourself forget it! 

    All of you reading this deserve individual statements, but I'm too tired to do something more elaborate - totally lost track of the days and wasn't writing this one in advance. No way I could keep up the giant lists forever, anyway. You all take care of yourselves, you do deserve it - and I know it's hard sometimes, or most of the time, but it will get better, I promise. No matter what. Keep hanging on. 

    I haven't been very active on the forums this past year. I mean, I've been on, but only about ~500 posts outside the games is telling. Still, despite that, I've had a grand time both here and on the server. I've graduated, gotten a job, and become a different person in many ways this year. I'm fairly happy with who I am now, which is nice, lol. 

    I won't apologize for this not being more ornate, I'm too tired. Knowing the lot of you is an adventure, and I never want to give that up. 

    *toasts you all with a glass of eggnog* Love ya. May this next year be better than this one, and with less hardships for those we love. 

  11. Some cool things! 

    - went to the American Fork library activity that was mentioned on here some time ago, and it was great. Got to meet @Ethan_sedai and chat wild theories, ran a bridge (and shot at said bridge) badly, handily lost a game of breakneck (don't gamble, kids), and won stickers and a gift card in a drawing. Pictures of various spoils attached below. 

    - my boss decided the way to get me into playing MTG is to just give me free cards, so now I guess I gotta play :P can't really argue with that! 

    - I bought a machete at Walmart but I didn't have ID, and honestly can't blame the clerk for being skeptical that I'm 19. Mom backed me up, though, so I got to buy the cheap machete B)

      funny tangentially related story

      me and a couple of friends (all still in high school:P) tried to adopt one of our other friends a short while back for fun since we had all just turned 18. we found out that you have to be at least 10 years older than the child you’re adopting so we opted to just go buy fish at the store instead :P but they didn’t believe that we were old enough either :P

      I can just imagine some random secretary being really confused as a bunch of highschools walk in and try to adopt one another.:D

      That's hillarious.

      Oh yeah, Secret History slaps. All around solid story, adds depth to a pre-existing story, whilst fleshing out new characters? That's the mark of a good side story- it is pretty much unnecessary to read it to enjoy MB Era 1, but if you do want to read it, it adds so much.

  15. I just realized I told Discord but I didn't tell the Shard yet - I GOT A JOB! My first! It's at a bookstore/gifts place, and so far I really like it. It's still work, but the other employees are cool and the store itself is really awesome, exactly my kind of place. My newly earned income is going to hate me, though, because I want to buy so much there :P

  16. ENCANTO IS GOOD. Not flawless, but very good. And the songs are also very fun. I've been singing some - okay, namely We Don't Talk About Bruno - all night and morning and today. 

    (My reaction to which was "oh man, now I have to write We Don't Talk About Jasnah, don't I". The same day as I put out Welcome to the Cosmere. That's song parodies for you; they never leave you alone.) 

    I've also got to get through my Shard notifs, I know, and I'm sorry if I've been inadvertently putting answering anyone off. I'm a bit exhausted from Things (which you will see eventually) today, but I'll try to get that done sometime this week.
