suggestions for a newbie?
« on: Jan 01, 2014, 11:05:23 PM »

My main question is this: People who have been around here a while, do participation levels rise and fall or have I registered to a dead forum? Any part of this place I haven't seen that has more participation than the other sections?

The chat room in particular seemed promising, but of course it's always hard to get people's schedules together, especially on a forum that doesn't have the massive membership required for people to be around all the time.

Currently the forum appears to be in a lull, I certainly hope it's not a dead forum! I will do everything I can to keep it going; but member participation can't be forced. Hopefully now that the major holidays have passed, we will see an increase in numbers.

Also, since this does not appear to be an introduction--but a general query posted in the Introductions forum--I will move this to the Bugs, Suggestions and Feedback forum :)
 You own a rock. It's a rock with a symbol on it. Nobody is sure what it does.    Light, flexible, and handy for the acrobatic types.    A versatile vegetable for cakes, stews, meals and rabbits.    RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    A heavy long steel shield, enchanted with nature and shaped to resemble a leaf. The shield is said to be able to cloak the bearer in forested areas three times a day.    Madam Curio's specialty potion. One potion can restore either a tiny tidbit of health, stamina, mana (magic), strength, dexterity, perceptions or intelligence with one draw back: the effect is random and the drinker has no idea which will be bolstered.   A steel shuriken, or throwing star. Easily concealed, these weapons can be thrown or hidden in the palm for slashing or puncturing.    A deep green ring carved from spinel. Engraved are shapes of twisting vines that seem to reach out. This ring is ensorcelled to allow the wearer to cast Tangling Vines, a spell to trap a target, twice a day.   A necklace with the mummified claw of a supposed harpy. It is said the necklace may grant the wearer feather fall once a day.    This health potion is enough to restore light wounds (cuts, bruises, knock outs.) It may be enough to keep serious wounds together long enough to seek medical attention...but it isn't recommended for near-death health issues.    A splendid long cloak dyed as black as a starless night. To keep a body warm or to keep them hidden in the shadows?

Thanks! If you do want to advertise for the forum somewhere, I think tumblr is fairly active right now. Sorry about posting to the wrong section.

Hey, I recently joined and have noted that there is not much activity right now. I have been waiting for posts and replies and whatnot. Hopefully now this can liven up?

I think it's partly a holiday lull. People get busy at the beginning of November with NaNoWriMo then begin running the gamut of the winter holidays.
 One minor healing spell enchants this necklace. Once the spell it used, the necklace turns into ash.    A splendid long cloak dyed as black as a starless night. To keep a body warm or to keep them hidden in the shadows?   RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    A chunky bracelet made of gold. It's heavily encrusted with emeralds and sparkles beautifuly.
