Oh neat! I never see the Settings section of the boards, but this seems fun. I didn't realize we had another GR staffer around.

Anywho, like many such fanzines and many such discussions, the proposed super rpg fanzine is apparently going to be vaporware (or whatever the fanzine version of that is). However, I had already finished putting together the now nomadic article. In retrospect, this is probably for the best as the material from Worlds of Freedom *is* GR's IP and even in a free publication I would have had to talk to GR and Crystal to get their permission and such and I really don't feel like going through all that. The article's inspiration and writing aside, I'm pretty much out of the industry and don't want to do anything in any formal context with GR or any other company and its representatives. Been there, done that, have the scars and the bad memories to show for it.
Ouch- didn't realize you'd been burned there.
Ronin Army's forums, conversely and IMO, has all the creativity and energy of the underwear aisle at K-Mart round about 2 AM, coupled with the constant concern that a wrong word or the hint of discontent will see the entire forum dustbinned or at a minimum see the board's participants harangued at length with the threat of such; I only skim there on occasion to see if there are any official announcements I may or may not be interested in.
WELL looks like you've a talent for foresight. Any advice on when I should rebook my Disney World vacation? Lottery numbers :)?

And RPG.Net is a virulent cesspool I've avoided for years. Shudder.

Why here? Because I lurk hereabouts with some frequency and enjoy the work of the people who post here: there's excitement for the game, creative energies shown in a dozen different threads, and the back-and-forth of differing ideas and opinions being bandied about and discussed in interesting ways. I love me some colorful discussion on nerdly topics, as long as it doesn't degenerate into Troll Farm territory (which the admin keeps from happening here).

Hey there! Sorry it's taken me so long to reply to this thread, I'm really digging it so far. I'd just like to say thank you for the kind words and I'm glad you're enjoying Echoes. This is the perfect spot for this thread, so no worries there either.

Coolness. I have a couple more threads to eventually add around here (My home-brew Earth-25 DC Universe stuff, and my ALGERNON Files stuff) and I wanted to verify values of kosher. :-)

Someday I may write out the whole saga for the entertainment of others. I chalked it up to yet another life lesson or learning experience.

More Algernon Files stuff sounds good to me.
