I'm getting my shit together and trying to see if grad school is gonna be a habitable environment. So far it seems pretty good!

A buncha people at Telltale (all but 25 employees) were layed off today without severance pay or insurance, with all of them having lived paycheck to paycheck in an expensive area.

Fuck man, I like their games and I'm friends with some of those affected on twitter. This is so sad.

Oh neat, so what kind of stuff do you have in mind for the D&D thing? I'm curious.
I never answered this, whoops.

The long and short of it: They start at level 0 as a commoner, 10's across the board with no background. They make decisions on their pilgrimage to a temple of bahamut (All humans, age 13-16) as their escorted by adventurers with other children. They're background will be shared and the skills they develop are their background.

Venom is fucking fantastic.
Well, basically the Eddy/Venom scenes. Some CGI messiness but overall if they make another one i'm fuckin down.
Just go in knowing it's bit of a mess and you'll have a fun time.

Mayor Jeroth is not creating forum activity. In fact, I bet he won't even see this post if not tagged in it!
I've been posting in mafia and trying to stay active. To be fair, we all generated a lot of content and the forum court is the latest trial. I think folks are just busy compared to the summer.


My guild just hit Ahead of the Curve for Heroic G'huun in WoW and I made this.

So...should we be having a discussion on whether or not it's a good idea for Recon to keep paying for this place? We don't seem to be using it very much. And by "we" I mean less than 10 people posting with any regularity.

We might just have to. It's clear that the forum hasn't been drawing much in the way of activity lately; we've got several threads that are "on hold" and all of like eight that have been active in the past week. The Discord at this point seems like it's substantially more active than the forum - and in part I suspect that's because of a lower level of commitment required, given that we're all generally getting busier and busier with shit in our lives.

@RECONmaster what do you think? Given that it's your money and effort, I feel like you've got the most important say here.

The forum only sticks around because of other websites I host for some other people. If this were the only site on this box, this shit would've been gone a long time ago. Even considering the other sites, I don't know how much longer it'll stay anyways.

It would definitely be a weird shift in our personal internet habits. I'm not saying let's pull the plug on this thing quite yet, but we should definitely be openly talking about what the phasing out of this forum should be.

Well, the plan I had in mind was something along the lines of one day migrating the server from the VPS it's currently on and hosted with to a box I have locally. Pretty much a server in my network closet sort of thing. The website would become less reliable and would suffer downtime every now and again because of outage in power and ISP issues but it would be available most of the time which I think is good enough considering how little traffic it drives.

After the forum eventually looses traffic all together, I would just stop hosting it.
