When people ask me about my religion, I tell 'em I'd worship Cthulhu.

A Frog is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

I can certainly say that she and others have been a tremendous help with one of the anthropology projects I'd taken on over the years - helped me track down a rare volume.

It is only when we stand up, with all our failings and sufferings, and try to support others rather than withdraw into ourselves, that we can fully live the life of community.

It's always wise to honor your editors. they never quite get enough attention.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

I'm sure the entire playerbase is happy to have you on board, Cy. Probably in ways we will barely ever realise.

I have to say I'm very impressed that a volunteer organisation like MWM sees value in the job that Cy is doing. That really speaks well for the prospects of CoT.

Right from the start, they've been smart enough to handle this intelligently. Volunteer doesn't always mean unskilled, after all, and I think at this point we can all agree the MWM team isn't some group of layabouts and dummies.

On the importance of

On the importance of continuity:

A friend of mine was on an RP server in world of warcraft. Several members of the guild he was in had backstories that, while consistent with the lore available in WoW, were not consistent with Warcraft 1 through 3. Most were not even aware there were other warcraft games at all until my friend pointed out these incompatibilities in the backstories of his guild mates. He became the guild's official lore keeper and people started checking their backstories through him.

We have some astoundingly skilled people working on the project. It constantly amazes me that we have educators, scientists, engineers, and professionals from a dozen different fields who believe so much in the project that they are willing to give their non existent free time to us.

Hear hear!

I know the question is for Cy, but I'll answer for me anyway. I'm an Autobot at heart, but a fan of both and my fave TF is Soundwave.

You earned 15 Kuraikari points! You can use this currency for exchange of information or you can store them and collect even more, so you could get to be in First Place!
But be aware, as you are new in this game, you are behind in this race. Other devs and members are way ahead of you!

Well, that's it for now! Step along, step along! Nothing to see! Get going before my good mood wears off, that means now!

I think all of our artwork has been almost entirely computer generated or drawn rather than scanned in. There's some pretty old stuff from our first few months that we might make available. If it hasn't been passed on already I'll see what can be done. No promises at this time of course.
