EGADS! You've been around for quite some time thar, haven't you? Well, it's quite unfortunate that this site is now essentially quite dead. As is NewFig, I'm afraid. Pseudo has let them turn into some sort of ruin.

Oddly enough, that attracts me to this place still. I love the feel of these old ruins. One of the things I love about Pseudo's games is that they let you explore old abandoned ruins in strange lands, and in a way, this site is one of them. There is no moss growing in the corners, no statues falling apart with age, but instead we have the slowly deteriorating coding of the site causing glitches that are never fixed. Few venture here, and those that do are here for the memories this place holds. Some lost treasures of a time when it was once vibrant and full of the hustle and bustle of active minds. The once filled pages are now hollow, only brief sparks of conversation interrupt the otherwise endless void. This is a peaceful place now, no longer plagued by arguments over eggs and chickens or over gravity on the moon. With peace, however, comes a certain bitter loneliness. True loneliness can only be felt by those who have experienced the company of others as true sadness can only afflict those who have lost something dear to them. Those who wander here still come seeking what they once had, if only in memory.

Yes, this site is a ruin. An veritable chasm of knowledge all but lost to the past. This is a land of memory and nostalgia.

I greatly miss this site. I miss the times when I was embarrassed, as you mentioned before, and I miss the discussions with other people. I'm glad to see that there are still some people posting here, but it's still quite lonely to see how few are left.

Since this site no longer has a moderator or admin, there are no more real super strong rule enforcements, so "necromancy" doesn't exist anymore.

Instead, however, we still govern grammar and whatnot. And generally people still make longer posts than most sites. Fun fun fun!

But yes, welcome back, Neah, it's good to see posts here! Other than this stuff, it's like a... [pun]post apocalypse[/pun].

I like the idea of the fig gathering. It'd have to be called FigCon or something. We'd all come wearing our avi's on our faces. That'd be fun. However, would we wear OldFig avi's and colours or NewFig? I for one would wear my good ole' ice glyph thing, methinks. It'd be like a comicon or an anime convention. Or a gun show! Except so few of you like guns. V_V What a pity.

But I remember entertaining the idea of a real life meet from a long time ago. I know a lot of old figgies on Facebook, and I know what some of them look like, so I'd likely be able to confirm that they are who they say they are for the most part yup yup. I could also verify with some people over various interwebz and such. I know a lot of figs still. YOU GUYS ARE STILL CLOSER FRIENDS TO ME THAN ANYONE I KNOW IN THE SCARY THING THEY CALL "REAL LIFE"! SERIOUSLY I LOVE/MISS YOU ALL! EXCEPT THE ONES I HATE, SCREW YOU PEOPLE THAT I HATE!

Rating Orb david s, Lawful Good Paladin – joined 8 years ago How do you know how attractive you are?..XXX.XXX2 years ago
Well for me, most people that look like me are either hippies or Otaku/weeaboos, and since I'm currently in the two "social" clubs on campus for both of those, I suppose it actually helps me out a lot to know there are other people that look like me.

Of course none of them have girlfriends. Some of them are bisexual, and still have neither boyfriends nor girlfriends.

The girls in both clubs seem more interested in girls as well. I figure we should prally form alliances with the LGBTTTQAAAMPP organizations. But that's beside the point, since I'm still straight, and that's not relevant to whether or not I'm attractive.

My best guess is that other people do figure out if they're attractive by going to parties, and people like me don't go to parties, so we don't know if we're attractive. Like, the clubs I'm in are people bumbling about doing... whatever. Not getting girlfriends, though.

...Wait really? Like, are you being serious, or sarcastic? Because when you're being that sarcastic, you need sarcasm brackets...

P-I-E-R=pier. Pier=a place for docking boats.

Just to be abundantly clear.

The whatnow? I'm too lazy to *actually do anything in the group*. I'm only in it because of pier pressure. Why "pier" and not "peer", you ask? Why, 'tis because Sappotoo was being a real dock.

I honestly even forget what I asked, and I'm too lazy to go back a whopping one page to find out! Hooray for being lazy!

DeeKay, what's your nation?

I'm kinda worried about trying it out on a nation that's notably better than me, so instead I'd rather try out on something pissant and weak.

Jesus, this is reminding me of my days back on Combat Grounds. In that, you'd challenge other armies. If you were the attacker and you lost, you lost a lot of your forces, but your enemy lost some of theirs, too. If you won when attacking, you didn't lose any troops. That meant that if your enemy was stronger than you, but was offline, you could attack them until they lost a lot of their forces, and you were active, so you could build your forces back up. If you did that, then in no time you'd start winning again and you wouldn't lose more troops.

At one point in a many-round vengeance massing, where me and one other playing got at eachother's throats for a few weeks, I massed him while he was offline, and after a certain point the game wouldn't let me attack him anymore because I was too strong, so I actually picked a fight with someone bigger than me so that he'd weaken me enough that I could attack my enemy again. I f*cked myself up just so I could keep f*cking him up.

Good times~

But everyone knows I'm not. I'm not even particularly tolerable. That's why I have long hair, to hide my ugly pugly mug. Ly.

Something along those lines.

Also something else I'm wondering: What is this "challenge" thing, and how does it work, how does it benefit me, and what is the cost of failure?

Nyoom nyoom, y'all~ I'm back here to post about something that's *actually on topic*.

Back to the idea of Nation States, I have both a question and a proposal for something.

First the question: What is Nation States 2, and how is it different from the original?

Now the proposal: I've logged back in to my nation after a 1 month period of awayness, shortly before it disappeared into oblivion. I also realized that in my absence the population and amount of money grew by approximately 1 metric f*cktonne. Anyway, here's my thing. I've decided to stick around with the nation I have, but I still don't want anything to do with zombie sh*t, so I'd like it if someone would be so kind as to *take over my nation for that period of time*. Which is to say, I'd have someone else take my password for that period and log in or whatever.

This is primarily because, after I come back, I don't even want there to be any notifications about what happens over Halloween. I just want to have someone else go through that, someone who doesn't hate it. That way I can act like normal and like nothing happened while I was on vacation.(For all intents and purposes, I'll say that my whole population goes on vacation, too... *totally not into France or the U.S.*)

As for who I'd like to have stewarding my account in my absence, I'd prefer it to be Sappotoo. However, if Sapphy is unavailable for the request, I'd offer it to... someone else in this here yonder Figdom.

SO YES THAT IS MY IDEA WHAT OF THATS DO YOU THINKS??

It's not that it's difficult, there's just other things I'd like to do. A game like that gets boring after you've played it through, but it become more worthwhile if you can skip the grinding and get all the beasts or whatever.

Also, money hacks and level hacks are super handy. I'd like to be able to buy a new starter or two...

Alright, so maybe you guys know something about how to hack a game? If so, I'd really like to see a hacked version of Miasmon. I know someone on ArcadePrehacks requested it, and then nothing. It'd be pretty cool for basic hacks of that. Or something.

Aw, well. That's just a thought. I don't know if that's something easy or something hard...
