  • Interests
    Chasing down more virginous morsels, extracting their livers, consuming livers, dispensing grudges good for 1000 years as my main course and form of justice for lulz and hardly sparingly... chasing my tail, or anyone's for that matter, even fake ones such as on that dratted Jin outfit that keeps on foiling me, oh oh and bells, janglies, baubles and dangles by the plentifuls. Weaknesses include being scratched behind the ears, between them and under the chin i.e. cuddles.

  1. Heh, it's already closed. Didn't get to have my second go around after all. Oh and thank you for the tip-off CovertRui.
  2. Heh, it's closed again. Didn't get my second go around after all.
  3. Just curious because I've been rather out of the loop since 'omg CN obt!' ... is there a way to use reference photos at the creation screen ala Perfect World? I'm checking because I saw some images posted with ref' pics and couldn't tell if they were just pasted on or not.
  4. My nonchalant pretty boy fox: Not sure about the hair colour yet, but then I think the white suits because I'm thinking of the description of Inari foxes. I wanted to make one in the mold of TERA's Killian but it seems as though the amount of characters that have been created has reached critical mass and they pulled the servers offline. :<
  5. So I had my birthday come and go, too bad it was offset by a dream I had that was so out of whack - even for my standards - that rattled me throughout the festive period. Everything felt like deja vu, and I mean everything. = =

    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      Dreams are really something. Glad to see it's over for you. Happy belated birthday anyway!

    2. Kitsune

      Kitsune

      Dreams are mystifying, huh? Happy birthday to you. :D

  6. Oh dear, what IS it I've signed up to? Good thing I don't suffer from epileptic fits. o_O So yeah, came back from the dead - again - ... arrived at my notification panel to notice it was rather brimming with activity. One of the pokes traced me back to you, so here I am to return fire. *poke* (Yes I am always this eccentric in my manner of speech.)

  7. 3 months in the future, but better late than never. I've spent my days whiling away back in Aion actually; and that is the reason as for my sudden disappearance. Overall I grow weary of the wait on pretty much every durn MMO that's worthwhile to play/keep tabs on lol.

  8. HAIL, stranger

    how are you?

  9. Ey I'm an ex maplestory player, I'm used to it.

  10. Best get used to the practice of abusing BBCode: underlining, bolding out tags and the like. I know I have hehe. Got into a few misplaced unwarranted scraps because of it.

  11. "But it does reassure me blade masters are not only DPS mules

    You read to shallowly I was actually stating it's great that they are versatile and not just damage dealers."

    I don't wanna cause a ruckus on that thread so I'll say it here, it's a little something to get used to for all the +1 hounds that are out there.

  12. Not with an insider profile image like that; that's just plain creepy, not cute. Putting eyes on fruits and veggies is just not a good idea! Mr. Potatohead and the Annoying Orange speak from experience!

  13. It's not that I'm at a loss for words in the field, I find that I'm often too stoic and unmoving when it comes to day to day activities unless I get inspired to comment with a sarcastic quip or feel a slight twitch of disdain with my chosen subject. So yeah, that's why small talk is generally not a good idea for me to engage in, for the good of everyone involved. ^^

  14. Whut, you're going to tell that to ol' Barret's face are you? Plus last I checked, he is from Japan, as is MMZ! Well, their games are derived from there anyway.
  15. It may puzzle you to know that I'm not a native resident of the UK neither; I've just heard enough of the language from living here for the most part of my life, and my need to express myself via the creative medium of word compelled me to learn the ins and outs of the English language more thoroughly. On the down side, I forgot most of my native tongue now, haha. In the eternal words of Homer Simpson; "Every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain!" *head clutch* so true~.
