  • Wow, you're still around?

    Posted by Melpomene

    • Yup~

      Not quite as active as way back in the day, and I did take a bit of a break a couple years ago, but still here every day. It's a convenient place to talk about almost anything.

      How's life treating you these days?

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Pretty good.
      I mainly stick to GTAV RP these days.

      Posted by Melpomene

  • I really like your signature and avatar.

    Posted by Spagh

    • Me too, although I've been thinking about changing it. (Both images are from a tcg I play, although from cards which are almost two years old. It's just hard to make a good looking set without photoshop. (Which I own, but don't have installed... and can't install until I fix my dvd drive.)

    • ...

      "Comic Sans" is called that because it is a comical sans-serif font, where sans means without. (serifs being the little tags on the ends of many letters, such as whenever an uppercase i or lowercase L isn't just a straight line)

      Posted by thanks

  • I was going to ask about your sig, but I can see below that Linkle already beat me to it.

    Regardless, I love it everytime I see it

    Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Haha, fair enough. I've been thinking of changing it too. Both it and my avatar are from the tcg I mentioned in the card games thread, but the images right now are from cards which were new before I took a break. But first... I need to reinstall Photoshop. >_>

      Posted by Sabbo

    • (Relatedly, the avatar Linkle saw was a different one, although still from the same game)

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Ooh, okay. Now I'm even more interested in this game... It's just hard to start another one, I'm far down the rabbit hole in terms of my obsession with mtg, at the moment lol.

      Yes, you should reinstall photoshop xD

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

    • Heh. For what it's worth, it' currently cheaper to be top tier in FoW than MtG. (a winning deck from a couple of months ago was $150~ when I checked a couple of weeks ago) Oh, and the avatar Linkle saw was based on this card: fowtcg.com/card/1061 and my sig at the time was based on this card: fowtcg.com/card/1062

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Ah, that's good to know. I've wasted so much money on MTG..

      Also I love that Alice of Shadow art.

      Posted by Lady Sunshine

  • sabbo you know my soul <3

    Posted by Vynrah

    • Graphic artists know what's going on.

      ...I just don't art as much as most others. >_>

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Your avatar is beautiful. ^-^

    Posted by Linkle

    • Thanks. You can see more of the artist's work here: pixiv.net/member.php?id=298156 although they don't seem to have uploaded anything in the past year or so (including this piece). They are also the primary artist for the character Alice in the tcg Force of Will.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • You're welcome!

      And Thanks! ^_^ I'll bookmark this and check it all out in the morning!

      Posted by Linkle

  • Could I request that you retract how you divvied things up and give your base to Kol? With ZL gaining Romani, and myself likely gaining the Pirates Fortress from the other person who dropped (we were secret allies), it would make more sense balance wise because the three remaining players would have two bases each. You don't have to, but I think it would be a bit more interesting/fun that way :P

    Posted by goronmario

    • Seems fair. You turning down my offers and Arg dropping both change enough that it's worth it to switch stuff up.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Cool! Thanks haha. The game is definitely not going how I expected. It's a little bit ironic when you consider Kol, myself, and ZL were traditionally allies in previously land wars when we had more participants :P

      Posted by goronmario

    • Heh.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • If you're interested in staying on-board Land Wars in an administrative role and seeing how things work and potentially playing in a future game, that would be awesome haha. Would suck to see you not participate in a future one :P

    Posted by goronmario

    • What would an "administrative" role entail?

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Either way though I do intend to keep spectating. I haven't unsubscribed from the threads or anything.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Administrative role would pretty much just be weighing in on certain issues that are divisive among the four remaining players and we can't agree on. An outside voice who can provide insight/different opinions on certain things, if you will. And once you understand how things worked a bit better, I might ask if you could mod a battle from time to time :P

      Posted by goronmario

  • Question about your new magic for Capt. Keeta: Could this magic be described as something similar to a Lych reviving people? And would this magic be effective on fallen foes as well as your own soldiers?

    Posted by goronmario

    • I dunno, and yes, that was the intention.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Alright. What would be the kind of strength they'd have? Just curious for war modding purposes, so that whoever would mod against this ability would know enough to mod the battle haha. Would these troops be more similar to cannonfodder, half strength from what they once were, or full strength? And is there a limit to how many can be raised? Are they also connected to Capt Keeta (so, say if he died the people revived would drop as well)?

      Posted by goronmario

    • Definitely less than when they were alive. Mooks would become cannon fodder, while elites wouldd become mooks. Heroes I guess would become "mere" elites. I'll add in that it's a limit of... 100-200, I guess would be fair, considering army sizes? (Not so much that they overpowereverything, but also not so few that they'd be useless.) And yes, they'd be connected to Keeta.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hey. Do you have any interest in joining the new Land Wars? We need more players.

    Posted by Argenteus

    • I've thought about it, but I'm not sure how much time I'd need to invest in it. That's probably the main barrier.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • For most of the game, a quick post once a day should be sufficient. It gets a little more intensive once you're actually at war, but nothing too bad.

      Posted by Argenteus

    • I see. What consequences are there for a person who doesn't post for a whole day?

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Diggin' the new Avatar & Signature. Fo' sho.

    Posted by Kae

    • Danke. They don't seem quite "me" yet to me, but that might be because this is the first time I've had an avatar depicting a non human-like being. For a decent length of time, anyway.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Oh, and because I like telling everybody who points the set out, they're from a trading card game called Force of Will.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hey! I do not know if I should contact you or anyone else ... I saw that you were Administrators. I had a user (speedokaggen) and now I have forgot the password. When I sign in and press that I have lost the password I do not receive any email with my new password. How do I do to sign in with my old user? I have some interesting stuff I want to share with you in the forum :)

    Posted by Speedokaggen1

  • Beautiful avatar and signature set.

    Posted by N64

  • I love your signature with the poke-women, who made it?

    Posted by Pennington

  • You OK?

    Posted by (-_-)

    • Hai. I just got a lot of things rush at me all at once at home. I intend to return within a week, and sooner if mine & Ruki's Mafia game gets voted in.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Oh OK so everything's going to be OK?

      Posted by (-_-)

    • Yeah, looks like it will be. I'm still a little busy, but it's stablized.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Yeah I've been pretty into the game since a friend introduced me to it in August, and god I need those alternate art Dreads, where I live they never arrived, but at least I won a Halloween Glinda in a small tourney so it's not all bad. Merry Christmas by the way!

    Posted by Jackos

    • I found out about it around Halloween, at PAX Aus. Apparently these particular Little Dreads were never released in America? We also got the cluster from before Grimm (Valhalla), which has... quite a few high-cost and high-power cards.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Well here in Latin America the game has very few players so I wouldn't know if they weren't released in America as a whole or the stores here just didn't get them for some reason. I know we did get the starter decks of Valhalla (but not the booster packs, what the hell) but I've also heard that the cluster in particular was more busted than anything Grimm or Alice have ever had (some cards were really, really bad where others were bullshit of a higher caliber than even Artemis or Reflect/Refrain).

      Posted by Jackos

    • Ah, I didn't realise there were parts of the continent which did get it. But yeah, it's broken. I don't have many cards from it, but one I do have was I think... 1500/1500 fire for 8 cost, and deals 1000 damage to every enemy resonator (and your own life) upon entering, is Swift, and has Pierce (ie. overflow damage hits the other player's life).

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hey Sabbo, just wanted to say ta for your approval of Daz and to accept your offer for further improvements on the character.

    Posted by adamcorcoransmith

    • We can continue that in the thread if you want. Or here of course. Or by PM ("Conversation"), which is more convenient than here, and even more private.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hey Sabbo, quick question, if you don't mind helping me. I noticed the follows/following is the new friend system. But how do I add someone? Am I thinking too much? Am I...am I stupid?

    Posted by Don Carlos

    • I also notice that people put "@*insert name" as sort of an alternative to quoting. Do you just insert a hyperlink to their name?

      Posted by Don Carlos

    • For your first question, go to the profile of the person in question, look below their avatar and click the plus. If you're using Firefox, then you'll need to press Ctrl_+ a bunch of times to reach it (the exact number depends on the width of your screen).

      Posted by Sabbo

    • !!! That is the issue! I'm using firefox and I did notice that its covered.

      Posted by Don Carlos

  • SABBOTAGE!!

    Posted by trolliface

    • Somehow, I don't think I've heard that one before. At least not in writing. :P

      Posted by Sabbo

    • You haven't?? But it's so clever!! I guess that must mean that I'm clever. XD

      Posted by trolliface

    • That aside, I noticed that you wanted to sign up for Malia's game of Mafia. While unfortunately that game is full (and ongoing), you are still welcome to join the upcoming Pokemon Adventures Mafia game Kay Faraday is running. It's going to have more experienced players, but new players are always welcome even in games which are not designated "newbie" games.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Not sure if Pm's were going through since I kept getting an error message when I tried? So anyways I think I've added you before but just in case my FC is 8034 1855 6661

    Posted by Creiddylad

    • It seems that that is an invalid friend code. (PMs are not currently working properly. Old ones from before about a month ago work fine, but new ones can't be created at the moment. It's being worked on.)

      Posted by Sabbo

    • My code is 5370 1377 4016

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Oh whoops I see what I typed up wrong

      Posted by Creiddylad

  • Have you ever pulled one of Ninetales' tails?

    Posted by Mordred

    • Like... in Pokemon Amie? I can't say I have. (This Ninetales however lacks any tails at all, unless you count ponytails. :P)

      Posted by Sabbo

    • I probably wouldn't be talking to you right now if you had. It's said that pulling the tail of a Ninetales will put you under an eternal curse or something like that.

      Posted by Mordred

    • 1000 years, it seems. It's the Pokedex entry in Red, Blue, Stadium, LeafGreen, and Y.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Just wanted to let you know that I've been working on Cricket's profile, but I'll be in Venice until friday so I won't be active for a week.

    Posted by Ge0kinetic

    • That's fine; just post in the thread once you're able so it notifies me, and I'll get to it.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • I think I posted in my thread. I'm telling you because there were connection problems and dupe posts. Are those new posts seeable by you?

    Posted by FanofSMBX

    • Yes, I see them. (Although I didn't get a notification like I normally would)

      Posted by Sabbo

  • This is like the third person who's said you're a girl now.

    Posted by Rakshael

    • I know. It's the avatar doing it, I'm quite aware, but I like it more than my old avatars. :P (Except for the black hood one from VG Cats, but too many people couldn't understand its expression.)

      Posted by Sabbo

    • xD

      Posted by Rakshael

  • Hey! You used to use a penguin avatar for years?

    Posted by Jehanne

  • I don't know if you saw it on slack yesterday, but I noticed yesterday that you messaged me on skype sometime last year and I never answered back ;____; so I'm saying hi now!

    Posted by Rana

    • Ah! I saw that, but didn't realize you were talking to me. :P

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hello Sabbo! I see that my post on "Hylian Language" (in writing area) is marked as "deleted". Did i miss something regarding the forum etiquette? Thanks, Matthieu.

    Posted by Kaeporah

    • Oh, no, nothing to worry about. Your thread posted twice, so I just deleted one of them. This can happen for a few reasons, but most are not the fault of the poster.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • ok cool, cheers !

      Posted by Kaeporah

    • Hey by the way, how can i edit my avatar? I tried everything on firefox and Internet Explorer... thanks !

      Posted by Kaeporah

  • Thanks for taking care of the Plaza votes, Sabbo! Much appreciated.

  • Can we still use banners as custom titles? If so could you possibly add my old one back? i.imgur.com/EHvqzle.png

    Posted by pale

    • Sorry, custom ranks are no longer able to contain images, even if we want them to.

      Posted by Sabbo

    • Ah I see, could I get my Patron banner back or is that also a no go?

      Posted by pale

    • This is a different issue; currently, only one banner can display per person, with priority going to mod banners then clan banners then everything else (with a couple of extras in the middle), so that the banners considered more important for identification display before the less important ones.

      Posted by Sabbo

  • Hi. I was just wondering how to join a clan. Thanks.
