  1. Good. Not that you're ill, but I wasn't planning on writing any stories tonight.  :P Hope you feel better.
  2.   :)) Most likely I won't even log on for another month or so.. but we'll see, won't we? It would be pretty cool to get to play MD without getting sucked in and addicted like everyone else. Right? I'd get to look at you all like little peons enslaved to the game while I'm just out here, having a good time observing and chilling. (Wow, Glai.. that was harsh. :P)     What kind of stories? -.-;;
  3.   Cool, good to know..     I'm not too interested in roleplaying these days, except to observe how other people roleplay if it's a core game mechanic (which obviously it is). To be honest I'm not really looking to get drawn into MD, more visiting/'playing' just to find out what MD and its gameplay is these days. (Maybe it hasn't really changed all that much, aside from the superfluous aspects). More than anything else, I see myself as an observer. :P I'm going to head to bed now, but cool to see the responses so far!
  4. I'm surprised anyone reads about me in the forums, since whenever I played was at least a couple years ago.   @Aethon -- how new of a player are you? Since when did you join? Did you roleplay before MD?   Thanks both for your insight; it's interesting to think of how a new player would approach and engage with MD these days.
  5. informal observations so far: are politics mostly the bulk of this game? (from reading thread about power balances) players seem to mostly engage in the world by thinking philosophically about its philosphy I can see why I preferred a game world based more on the cut and dry mechanics (puzzles, combat system, game story) than such an involved roleplay/political system. too much to think about, a little abstract or too involving for an outsider to feel like delving into. so MD is more a simulation than a game for simple entertainment. mechanics are tailored towards simulation of political powe
  6. You might see me pop in once in  a while, but I don't plan on doing much more than that. I'm quite busy these days! After six years, I'm mostly curious to see where the game has gone, where it is now, and what its fate is.. not necessarily to be an active player. I never really thought I would, but I'm pursuing software development now. As I told someone, one of the things I liked about MD aside from the community was how it demonstrated the creative magic (world-building) that can be made through code. So maybe thinking of software development reminded me of this game.   So, I h
  7. lolcat sorry to revive a topic that's been inactive for quite some time... I've not been around for years so my perspective is definitely outdated, irrelevant and of little utility. And I haven't really even bothered to poke around in MD to get a sense of how it's departed from when I last played. Things have changed so much it takes far too much commitment to begin to make sense of what the game is about now. That said, Mur/Manu was a figure I spent a great deal of mental energies on at a certain point in time so reading this thread prompted some sentiments I wanted to express. I always
  8. I didn't read all of it but it certainly seems interesting. A little more interesting than MD was in the prior days I visited it. I wish I had more time to check it out but I probably, most highly likely don't. I guess some things have gone on in recent times. Well, the LHO part is interesting. I think it's a bit high-commitment as was brought up, and has opportunities to fall through on some occasions, but MD has a way of maintaining high commitment in players while they last. The other issue is the amount of LHOs that will be needed so the attempt doesn't completely fall
  9. Oh, good! You are experiencing one more level of the wonderful game we all love with the exclusion of myself, MD! Welcome, because, you know, if more people like you joined the forums, it might actually serve some sort of purpose! Meanwhile, how about getting further involved in different aspects of MD? For sure, your dedication to one of the first alliances and this newly-made decision to join the forums indicates an appreciable inclination! How about joining a project? Oh, I know, MDNP is just the thing for you! You can be a part of something that will undoubtedly somehow make MD gre
  10. You know what, if stormchum can use hello topics to advertise consumption of questionable substances... Would you like to become more involved in MD without the pain of building a freaking roleplayer character or some other such useless thing? Join the MagicDuel Newspaper Project! No matter who you are and what your capabilities amount to, you can help out in some way, and contribute to a worthy cause! Ohohohoho, what fun! Just indicate your interest to receive more information! (not that stormrunner has posted yet, but he will!) Oh, and this is a hello.
  11. Why does this feel so familiar? n____n
  12. My picture is the url I put in the last comment. You have to work hard to get the privileges! :D

  16. ... Didn't say that to "Lady Fang" Horo-imposter, storm chum. Tch tch. No, Lelouch is cool enough to name after. But it's too cool to be named after. You get it, Lu?
  17. Holy [spoiler]crap[/spoiler]. O_O Now if only you acted like Lelouch. You [spoiler]damn[/spoiler] travesty to his name! There's already been a Lulu.
  18. Honestly, dst. You're much too picky. Well, in any case, I wasn't planning to be part of your little syndicate or any fraternity. I'm the outsider, the angstly loner who really [i]doesn't[/i] play MD. 8) I just post on the MD forums, see.. I quit a long time ago! Nodnodnodnodnod.
  19. [quote name='dst' post='23602' date='Jan 11 2009, 11:22 AM']I agree with the first 2. But I can tolerate the others also :D . Except maybe the anti-MD (first time I typed MB :p ) cause then it's some sort of paradox...you're anti-MD but you continue to play...[/quote] That's not really a paradox, is it? How about pro-MDangst, then?
  20. anti-nice, anti-peace, anti-rpc, anti-admin, anti-new, anti-MD I'm serious. :) EDIT: Oh, and before I forget, anti-Lady[space]_____. Worse. Names. Ever. But I suppose they count in the new category. EDIT2: Okay, okay, hello.
  21. I think you misunderstood, lightsage-Awimale; the Awi I spoke of first just has the same name as Awi who posted after. I don't make mistakes, so the Awi I spoke of first is female. Therefore, since you insist on your proud possession of masculinity, there are two awiiyas: one female and one male. As to inferiority, I don't see your point. I never claimed my truths should affect your views; dry. Hrrrh. I suppose I'm supposed to defend my supposition. [codebox]differences Awimale spoke of = traits generally belonging to one gender (f) + traits generally belonging to another gender (m)
  22. Ahem, my dear bunny, there is nothing that could be labelled "mean" or "hostile" in those bolded words; they never indicated that the subject [i]was[/i] stupid and lazy and patty hectic lei inept or whatnot. Not to mention it is of my very esteemable opinion that nearly everyone is stupid and lazy to some point, even yours truly, so even if someone rash [u]assumed[/u] my words [i]implied[/i] those things, there is no need to be hurt. Okay, well, maybe I indicated that our new player here was lazy, but the same argument put forth just a sentence ago applies yet. Neither should one be ashamed
