is Bad_Demographic still around? she's the last OOer i talked to in person and that was some years ago (just a few days before she relocated to the American Southwest).

in a way, it's too bad gaming is so incredibly fragmented now - impossible to find people i know for MP sessions.

She's still around. She, along with her husband, join us for regular gaming sessions every Thur and Sun.

I saw her in ESO a couple months back.

Since joining in 2004 Ive shared jokes and laughs, hard times, and more than I should :). Been through rough times and good times. Great times even. Ive grown in many ways. Learned things. Helped others and been helped. Traded games. Had wonderful fun with the Xmas gift game exchange with Steam. Ive argued, taken breaks, and come back better I think. I thank this community and those of you who share it with me.

I enjoy posting things I find interesting or think you may. I smile if that is how it works out. Im saddened when others find my post upsetting or just wrong. I seem to need positive results more than I should. Again Ive grown.

All and all a good ride. So far. :)

But let me take one moment here. This community and you fellow members were there from day one when my wife had to rush to the hospital. You provided such needed help with advice, well wishes, and donations. You are the reason that even before my wife could wake up and open her eyes that she smiled then instantly had a happy cry face. A good reason when she knew that someone cared. You could see it on her face that day. And still since that time you've kept my spirits up and helped with things I could not afford on my own to buy or fix. Ill never forget any of that. But lightening the spirits of my wife I can never thank you enough.

Damn Im crying. Im going to bed. Be well all. Glad Im here with you. I have insomnia again. Always when I have to go some place. Its why Im up posting :)

For the past several years one of my favorite things to do in games is name the characters after people on OO. So almost every RPG i play has a Yellowking, a DBT, and various other members. I really don't know why, but it makes the characters more personal.

On a side note, never name the Bard "Hepcat". Unless you want him to be a chaotic/good character.

FWIW, I have specific instructions with two different people that should I engage in unscheduled bucket-kicking, they're to post here and notify everyone. I will not go quietly into that good night!
I'm friends with a few of you on Facebook, hopefully someone would post in here in if I met my untimely demise. Of course as Austin pointed out, after a while I forget the OO name of some of the Facebook friends.
What we need is for the admin to pin a post in the Facebook group that we can all use to post our OO-FB names.
DONE!

While we are reminiscing - I can't believe no one has mentioned the naughty, controversial EBG/R&P based vignettes someone here created using the "game" "The Movies". I remember those vaguely as the nerd's equivalent of a rap battle. :D

I remember them but I wasn't as impressed with them as a lot of people were.

That's a great idea, I only did that with Lord Corwin. Recently I went with Karen, Becky, Miss Anne and Chad.

I've done that when playing Worms. But then I feel bad when one of them dies.

On topic, I don't think anyone can be more appreciative of this place than I. I gained a spouse, some very good friends, unbelievable amounts of support through our marriage and my kidney transplant, meetups when I (used to) travel...I consider most of you family. Especially the ones who actually are, but not just them.

I remember being a dwarf in the AAR, The Wire style run through of Myth :The Fallen Lords at one point. That was fun while it lasted!
