I'm currently rereading one of my favorite stories, "The War Hound and the World's Pain" by Michael Moorcock.  Like most of his stuff, it's short but sweet.

Next on the agenda is to refresh myself with Janny Wurts' Mistwraith books.  I just found on today that the most recent entry in the series came out a few months ago, and I've forgotten damn near every detail from the earlier books. :P

You've seen it before:  you're minding your own business on the interent when, all of a sudden, you read something about a game you have yet to play that ruins the game for you.  Well, we hate that here, so we've devised a method that promotes discussion of new games without the worries of spoiling the experience for someone.

Gaze upon the code button, your new best friend.  Using the code button is simple enough for even the most dense internet denizen.

When you wish to talk about a delicate plot point or anything similar, all you need to do is hit the code button, type out the sensitive material, and hit the code button again.  Nothing to it.  If you happen to be a visual learner, this example illustrates what a spoiler-laden post should look like as you type it.

Once you've got everything ready to go, hit the submit button.  You should see a black box around the text you enclosed within the code tags.  In order to read the text in these boxes, just highlight it with your mouse.  No problem.

Now then, with such an easy way of keeping things spoiler-free, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't use this function liberally.  Failure to do so will be dealt with firmly.  It's a moderator's perogative to decide what is and isn't a spoiler, so use the spoiler block function if there's even a hint of doubt in your mind.

If this (somehow) didn't make things clear for you, feel free to PM one of the administrators, and we'll straighten you out.

Quote from: "Sensei Phoenix"

The Nameless One from Planescape Torment is a personal favorite because, well, if you need it explained, you haven't played the game and really should.

Damn straight. \m/

If we're gonna talk Torment, you can't go without mentioning Morte.  Best fucking sidekick that has ever existed.

Let's not forget HK-47, either.  KotOR2 suddenly turned a lot more interesting when I discovered I could rebuild him. :P

My favorite femme type character is Lulu from FFX.  Since all the women in my life are cranky, moody bitches, I guess it was a given that art should imitate life. :P

Keep in mind that the RPGFan staff has no control over what is bought and sold here, and as such we are in no way responsible if a transaction goes bad.  If someone refuses to pay or refuses to send you what you paid for, no one associated with this site can or will aid you in solving your problem.

Linking to any online auctions you may have going on at the moment is not only allowed, but encouraged.  A third party such as eBay provides a greater amount of fraud prevention than any direct sale or purchase ever could.

Registering on these boards just to buy or sell something is perfectly fine, but don't be surprised if people aren't willing to deal with a stranger.

Insulting someone solely for the sake of provocation.  That's a no-no.

Reviving Dead Topics
If a conversation has played itself out already, don't try to kick it back to life.  If a topic hasn't been posted in for a month or more, consider it D.O.A.

Multiple Posts
Every single person has the ability to edit any post they make here.  As such, there is absolutely no reason to see two or three posts in a row by the same person.  If you have something to say that you forgot to mention in your post, just edit it in instead of posting again.  Or better yet, think long and hard before you hit that submit button in the first place.

Multiple Accounts
There is no need for one person to have more than one account on these boards.  You'll be banned immediately if caught.  If you happen to share an IP address with someone (i.e. two accounts for two people who live in the same household), I recommend you make it clear that you are two seperate people.  How you do this is up to you.

As of this posting, there are fifteen people on these message boards with the ability to moderate, most of whom are forum regulars.  With so many enforcers present on these boards, the last thing we need is some random board member to take it upon themselves to tell someone if they've broken some board rule.  Trust me, if someone does something wrong, it'll be seen.  We'll take care of it faster and more efficiently than you ever could, and we'll look better doing it.

We have two distinct definitions for spam here:

1.  Making a topic that exists only to advertise something.  (whether it's your website, your birthday, etc)
2.  Making a post that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I personally find this to be the most annoying thing done on the internet.  Hope and pray I'm not the one who catches you if you do this.

"Introductory" Threads
There is a long history of cracking down on introductory threads on these boards.  It's not because we don't want you to feel welcome; there are better ways of making yourself known than an attention seeking "HI I'M NEW =^.^=" thread dedicated to yourself.  If you want to make yourself known here, contribute.  Make a meaningful post on any of our lovely threads or start a worthwhile topic of your own.

Authorization Code

In order to cut back on the amount of spam these boards receive, we require a registering user to input a simple authorization code before they can submit their account information.  All you need to do is type the following case-sensitive text:


Contact an administrator if you have problems.

Quote from: "Jimmy"
I was told to start with American Gods.

I don't know who told you that, but they obviously hate you. :P  Not that the book is bad (far from it), but out of all his stuff that I've read, it's by far the heaviest read.  There's a lot to chew on.  If I were to recommend a Gaiman book to start with, I'd say Neverwhere.  It's Alice in Wonderland by way of Tim Burton.
