apologies for my absence this month, my priorities have been elsewhere (trying to start a buisness, and some of the prep work is time consuming)
Most important thing I've learned from D&D?

I'm going on vacation for 3 weeks starting tomorrow. I'll have my tablet with me so I'll still post, plus if you need me urgently you can always get hold of me by getting Render or Serence to text me. Just wanted to give you all a heads-up in case I vanish for a few days though. ^^

im honestly considering leaving. i've gotten used to rping with a couple groups on discord and the fact that i can do there in an hour what takes close to a year here is immensely frustrating.

lately im finding i've forgotten the plan i had or have lost interest by the time everyone replies more often than not...

I can only say that I enjoy RPing with you here. The games you create are so well put together, and your characters are some of the most interesting in BoH because you make them so much different from other characters.

I understand it takes a long time for these RPs to go places, but I love JSA and I personally am looking forward to when Rua and Phoebe reunite...

If you really want to leave, that's your choice and your right to do so... But I can say I would greatly miss playing with you. I always look forward to what you create.

Sorry to hear that Buster,
Like others have said, we would honestly love for you to stay, it's a shame if you would leave but we respect your choices.

I suppose I could try joining it (technically again), but that's going to take some reading to have an idea of what the rough style it is.

Probably hasn't changed much since you left. It's a slice of life RP in the Housepets world with a colony of red pandas living in a village in the woods and a pack of wolves living in the woods but not in the village. Currently it's December 1 in game and the characters are either playing in the snow or at the library.

I am happy to announce that after nearly a month of recovery after my eye surgery, I can finally see clearly enough to return to my RPs!

Beacon of Hope, Crater City, and Pokemon, look out! Your hiatus is nearly over!

Well, hello. I havn't been around here in years, and I thought I'd say hi when I popped by...

I might return to this, I've been thinking, but I'm not sure weather that's a good idea or not.

I've always thought the ideas you bring forth were interesting, it's just that... you've always seemed to vanish for a time after. I'm never sure if it's because you lost interest or if something has taken your ability to get on away.

The first time was because I lost acess to stuff and then forgot about this place for a while, the second time was because nothing was really going well and I kind of gave up. So... uh, yeah, my bad on that second time ^^'

All I can do is say sorry if I said anything that discouraged you. I try not to criticize often because I:

1. Don't know the full plan with things when it comes to other players' characters.
2. Am not the best at being 100% clear with what I mean. (English being an ambiguous language not withstanding.)
3. Am not GM in most games, and don't have real clearance on what does and does not go.

That said, if you do decide to stick around in this section, there's the PMD one that you had a fun idea for a character with that didn't get to see light. I'm sure there's other games that might like the extra player too.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Veil.

The character you submitted was Kabus. I know I had parts I disagreed with (but didn't object to) in the character sheet, but I do think a ghost/fairy-type would have been a fun addition.


Of course, you might not have interest in playing a character you never put on the ground. Whatever path you decide on, you'll hopefully have a good time.

Ah yeah, I don’t really remember that character lol. If I was gonna come back I would try to go slow and see if I could do Roux, probably my favorite oc in any of these games. Maybe tribble.
