  1. Hey Calano, Archipelago has been revived. Are you interested in returning?

  2. 🤔



  3. SE is looking for players to fill out the roster of its newest game:

    I'm inviting all to join! Particularly those who have any experience with SE. The ruleset is complicated, but never fear- I will do my absolute best to guide all new recruits through the survival process!

  4. Come and compete with your friends in the Hurt and Heal championship of the century year month!

    Defend your favorites. Destroy all others. 


  5. I have come up with an idea for an advancement on the concept of Hurt and Heal.

    Who is interested?

      I have no idea what the rules are

    3. xinoehp512


      Each post, you hurt one of the contenders and heal another. If any drop to zero, they are out. Maximum health is ten. Currently, each hurt is for two points while each heal is only for one.

      Signups are up, by the way.:ph34r:


  6. Anyone else ever get too bored to sleep?

  7. Old Wounds, Part 1




    It was dusk.

    The two men had been fighting for hours, ringing their weapons against each other under the slowly setting sun. Or at least, it had felt like hours; time was strange here, in this land of dreams and shadows. As far as they knew, it had always been dusk.

    To anyone watching, it was clear that the taller of the two was winning. Clad in all black, and wielding a spear to match, he swung as though he had only just begun to fight. Each movement was precise, controlled, and powerful, and he pressed the offense relentlessly.

    His opponent, by contrast, showed every second of their battle upon his face. The clattering of his tarnished silver armor mingled with his heavy breaths as he struggled to block each of the Black Knight's terrifying swings with his own weapon- a broken sword, the blade snapped off a few inches above the hilt. Despite all this, he somehow seemed to be managing to hold off his opponent's unyielding attack.

    But then his foot caught on a patch of uneven ground, throwing off his stance. It was only for a fraction of a second, but that was enough. The Black Knight's spear crashed into the Silver Knight's shoulder, knocking him off his feet and sending him sprawling to the ground in a clatter of metal on stone. "Yield," the Silver Knight forced out immediately, but his opponent - the clear victor - had already halted.

    "That was well fought," declared the Black Knight.

    The Silver Knight looked up balefully. "Don't lie to me."

    A snort. "You of all people should know I would never give you a false compliment. Besides, you didn't let me finish. I was going to say, that was well fought for someone who insists on fighting with a broken sword."

    The Silver Knight glanced at his sword. The jagged edge of the break was dull, worn down by time. His eyes closed. "You know why I use this weapon. Why I have to."

    "It won't last you forever," warned the Black Knight in a low voice. "You know that."

    "Yes," replied the Silver Knight tonelessly. "I know." He flexed his legs, preparing to sit up - then let out a grunt of pain and grabbed his shoulder. Leaking out from under his collar were a few drops of blood.

    The Black Knight immediately knelt down to take a closer look at the injury. "What? I didn't hit you that hard... did I?"

    "No," the Silver Knight panted, his eyes closed. "Old- old wounds."

    The Black Knight sucked in a sharp breath. "Oh."

    They sat for several minutes in silence, remembering.


  8. I feel like it is in my nature to get into too many RPs and then get burned out.

      So what are you going to do about it?

  9. I fear I am losing myself.

      Xino, once again, I urge you to get some real mental health help. I would also like to remind you that you've gotten out of this place of pain once before. It does not rule you. 

      You are loved, you are not alone, you are worth it.

  10. I need to take a break, I think...

    Please don't forget me.

      I understand the need to get away.

      You will be remembered, I promise you that.

      I'll remember you. Not that well, but I will. :P

      Promise! Never.

  11. A while back I asked for book recommendations. And I received them! Some of the books I had already read, some I did not have access to, a few I simply did not get around to reading. 

    But I did read some, and enjoyed them!

    @#1 Taln Fan I read Code of Honor and enjoyed it. Thank you!

    @Ed Venture I have started the Wandering Inn and have loved most of it so far!  (That horror segment was really something though) (Also Erin is the best) Gratitude!

    @DoomStick I read A Natural History of Dragons and loved it. Gold star!

    @Zephrun's Imperium, @Channelknight Fadran, @Robin Sedai, @2EmLee2, Thank you for your recommendations! I hope I'll get the chance to read all of them someday. @AonEne special thanks for recommending Renegades and Illuminae (yes, I know that was a long time ago).

    Also @Matrim's Dice @The Unknown Novel I saw you mention the Licanius Trilogy on the What Are You Reading thread by pure chance and decided to check it out. I'm glad I did. :ph34r: Would recommend. 

    I will survive another day!

    1. Mat


      I mentioned Licanius as my first thing to read post-WoT, and I'm currently 68 pages into book 1 :P Glad to hear another witness!

  12. This week has been quite jagged.


    Up and down. Back and forth. Light and dark. Clear skies or fog.

  13. Somebody slap me and remind me of all the stuff I need to do.

    Or, alternatively, assuming: 1) I have 50 followers; 2) I have ~15 uncompleted tasks; 3) about 1/5 of my followers actively follow, you could all contribute 1/10 of a slap and 1.5 outstanding items and it would add up to about the same thing.

      If you want.

      Stop procrastinating. *slap*

  14. Once more the time has come,

    For you to advance a year in age.

    Or so I gather. I wish you well.

    1. NameIess


      Thanks for the well wishes!

  15. It has been 1000 posts since I had 6000 posts.

  16. I wish I could stop seeing the worst possible side of everything.

      My mom likes to talk about how our brains are just trying to protect us, so anxiety and irrational thoughts are really a way of self-love. But we have to realize that they are irrational. Just that realization is a big deal, so good job there, Xino. ^_^ I guess the next step is combating those thoughts. Saying/Thinking stuff like, "Brain, I know you're just trying to protect me, but I'm going to be okay."

      One thing I really like to do is list out all the reasons why I'm stressed and then write over everything with a corresponding positive thought. You could try just doing that in your head, since I know you don't like writing things out. Hope this helps! Love you!

      I know the feeling.

  17. I need book recommendations that I can get ahold of. I am willing to pay in gratitude. :ph34r:

      Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo (And the Six of Crows duology and the King of Scars duology, in that order)

      I don't suppose you'd be up for reading an online book? The Wandering Inn. It's really quite good. Eight books of writing so far, and I'm only even on the 6th. It's worth checking for a good fantasy book.

    4. Doomstick


      The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix


      a Natural History Of Dragons by Marie Brennan


      and no book recommendation of mine would be complete without the 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear

      How the heck did you do that, do members have the ability to delete status updates? Xino you've boggled me 

  18. Yo, can we yoink your characters in Chaotic Light?

  19. Is it just me, or is this the dumbest late policy to ever be invented?


    Late and makeup work will not be taken for credit in this course. Students need to prepare for the demands of the 21st Century workplace where deadlines are extremely important. All deadlines set throughout this course are non-negotiable and are expected to be met by all students, regardless of other circumstances.

      *sigh* - that is a bruh moment

    3. Frustration


      Excuse me, reguardless of other circumstances?

      So if you get cancer, and have to do kemo, where you are so sick even sitting up is almost out of your ability you still have to meet deadlines challanging for people who are actually healthy?

      That's inteligent.

  20. I seem to be fading. Although this is nothing new, it is nonetheless disheartening.

    *birds sing*
    *crickets chirp*
    *grass grows*
    *paint dries*

    It is against my nature to die.

    The sneaky shadow follows always, hidden while you face the light. Ready to consume you if you ever look back...

    And it fades to black.

  21. I hate this.

    Words cannot express, so why even bother?

      We love you, Xino. I'm always here to talk to. You've just had a tragedy befall you; feeling the way you do right now is totally normal. Just keep making it through one day at a time, and I promise you the sun will come out. 

    4. AonEne


      ^ what Star said. I don't know what happened but if there's anything I can do to help alleviate the feeling, I'm here. *hugs and cookies* 

  22. Every tale
