If Mathonwy is 2006 I wish 2007 had never come.

The membership is already such a good deal that there is no way we can reduce the cost.
i'm a rebel
@Iaxus How do you do that? I know you can change the main display, but I haven't been able to figure out how to change the colors of the scripting windows.@Jonathin One time you bought one of my alts a lesson package and said something like "I was just going to spend the money on rainbow color shoelaces" or something to the effect. Now every time I treat someone to some IRE goodies that's what I tell them.
It's time to put the bookend on an idea I had during a manic episode three years ago. So last October I was given an opportunity to basically have as much overtime as I could handle. I got my pharmacy tech license during a pandemic. I've given about 350 vaccines now! Which I think I am far more proud of than I would be having a super fancy staff.
Achaea had to take a backseat, but I also was in no way prepared to make a serious attempt at the staff. There is a litany of reasons why, but that's just avoiding my own lack of motivation and follow-through. I made a good start, and have done things with Augtavian I've never accomplished before.
I still think the cost of Artefacts is bullshit, and I still think whales ruin the game (especially when all the whales decide to join the same city during a conflict...but that's no reflection on what's going on currently...) Buuuuuut whales also keep the game paid for soooooooo.
I had considered not making this post, retiring Augtavian and just moving on to the next character like I've done too many times before. Keeping with doing things with this character that I've never done before, I'm going to stick it out and keep trying. Maybe Augtavian will dye his hair and buy a new sports car.
Thank you everyone for your comments, and for humoring me. Say hello IG to Augtavian sometime! We like it when people say hello. See you again for the 903 games!
Pandora called me mediocre IC so now I need to prove her wrong. See ya in 902 Lady P!
I had a lot of fun reading through this thread and it made me realize how grateful I am that Augtavian is still around in the Krymenian Academy. It makes me wonder how different things could have been if he had stayed a Mhaldorian.
Yeah, I still wonder about that myself. Mhaldor is a great city, and I had a lot of fun there. The roleplaying was the best I've ever experienced in Achaea, and getting out of slave rank there still feels like one of the most significant moments in my Achaea career. Hashan is my forever home now though, it's where I've been happiest during my Achaea career.
And we're back!
I thought I'd cringe a lot more going back and rereading this thread. Certainly, there is plenty of cringe, but I think just having some record of how far I've come far outweighs it! I was so proud of myself when I reached HR5, and now I'm a house leader! Been a HL now for about two or three weeks and I love it. I've been part of a lot of orgs where I always felt like the leaders never engaged me, or encouraged me. So I've been doing my damnest to be there for all my house mates. I'm the head of house novices too, and I have a great team of aides and am really happy with how we have been able to ensure novices get the attention they need. One of the first things I did was write a guide for each testing rank for my aides to follow. I empathized that it's important to have conversations with our novices, and not just go through a checklist with them.
One thing I did cringe at though is how upset I got with the costs of playing Achaea. I'm not thrilled looking back how much I've spent here but a realization set in; a lot of hobbies cost a bullshit amount of money. And now that NFTs are a thing at least I can say I haven't paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for a picture of an ape or some nonsense. Finally the staff of Achaea needs to eat, pay bills, and fuel their own game addictions. Ya'll deserve it, but offer to slip a celani a pizza for their work from time to time, yeah?
Although I won't recant my statement that I hope Matt (Sarapis) uses some of the money I spent to buy a double-ended dildo staff to bring with him to Burning Man. Not out of spite or anything, but just because I think if designed right it could be really trippy. Imagine there you are at Burning Man, a skull full of acid and you see a super hunky guy spinning around a staff painted gold with two light up purple dildos on either end? Pretty cool if you ask me. That's the sort of content you're all here for right, double ended dildo staffs?
I forgot they decided to replace the quiz with riddles in the next games. I'm -awful- with riddles, but I think I may have come up with a way to help me improve. We'll see.
And Styx still fucking sucks.
@Mosr is the wind beneath my wings and I was curious if he had retired or not when I saw:
Lord Mosr Gothfraidh (male Dwarf).
He is 420 years old
This vape pen is for you, bro.
Achaea combat game loops I enjoy:
2.) Figure out why I lost
3.) Change my strategy
4.) Rinse and repeat until I'm gud.
Achaea combat game loops that crush my soul:
1.) Lose because someone has spent a 2017 KIA Sorento more in credits than you and as such can do some OP bullshit your curing scripts aren't capable of dealing with.
2.) Try to fix your scripts
3.) Break everything.
4.) Can't load old profiles because god is dead
5.) Quit Achaea
Finally, what the fuck is up with shouting and why are 99% of shouts hot garbage? It's like playground bullshit that boils down to "Ha yer dumb!" "NO YOU'RE DUMB!" Your shouts are bad, and you should feel bad. The most painful shout for me is "Yeah, well you only won because of numbers!" Like get the fuck outta here with that weak ass shit. Take it on the chin and move on. Sometimes you have more people, sometimes you have less, stop acting like you're a paragon of fairness when we all know you'd roflstomp an enemy with your summoned discord buddies without a second thought.
