Title: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 21, 2019, 01:40:11 AM
We have the domain, we're updated to the latest SMF, we've got a dice roller, and the message has gone out to find interest in a campaign.  Hooray!

Yay!

I like the new dice feature.

(http://nomansland.site.nfoservers.com/MRG-Active-Archive/forums/Themes/default/images/dice_warn.gif) This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 1d100 : 10, total 10

Especially what happens when you edit a post afterwards.  :lol:

Hooray!  Glad to see you stopped by!  I corrected the link to your stats, I hope you don't mind.

Avatar updates are fixed.  People now can upload their avatars, and the old selectable avatar folder is in place.  You may also link to outside avatars.

But those are outsiders.  (Ò_Ó)

Hi! Welcome back!
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: InfernosCaress on January 22, 2019, 11:47:12 PM
Howdy.

I was not so much gone as the game just switched over to the other site.

On that note, we could always use another person in our Steal Valkyries games, if you are looking for something to do.

Quite probably will, as I've played under Sketchley before.  Just getting oriented, plus lots to do here to get this place actually habitable enough that people would WANT to be here, lol.

Free cookies is the way to go.

And here I thought people were tired of site notices about cookie use =p

Hey everyone, just checking in :) In all this time, can't believe we still haven't got a 2nd Edition of the Palladium rules or the ability to watch any legitimate English versions of most of the Macross series, some things never change :D
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 24, 2019, 03:25:14 PM
That may change soon!  Aside from the 2021 expiration date, Harmony Gold lost a lawsuit back in June against the makers of Mechwarrior Online and Battletech.

Also alive and observing.

/Mr.F - That is not dead which can eternal lie.

Palladium doesn't have the rights to Robotech / Macross anymore.

 Macross, the anime, comes with official English subtitles on their discs these days.

More quality of life improvements, we now have subnet masking, so forum links to the board are much tidier but this won't break previous links, so @Sketchley I don't think you need to worry about your exterior references at the MRC for Steel Valkyries, but let me know all the same if you run into problems.

ALARM!

I mean what?

Zed found my cage and rattled it a few times.  Hey people.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Crimson Reaver on January 27, 2019, 02:40:12 PM
Hey! Good to see you again :)
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Lance on January 27, 2019, 05:39:48 PM
Crimson!  Good to see you bud. :)
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Mr.F on January 27, 2019, 10:24:38 PM
It is quite pleasing to read through the old archives and find many of the people that made those games so entertaining are now reappearing from the dark corners of the interwebs =)

/Mr.F - Soo much reading...
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Crimson Reaver on January 28, 2019, 12:46:40 PM
I've been a poster/lurker over on RPGnet under the same moniker, so that's always a good way to get hold of me, although I spend less time talking RPGs and more time arguing about Brexit at present, nice to put that to one side for a bit!

I think there was talk of floating a game, I'm certainly up for it if others are as well, would be an honour and a pleasure to game with you all again.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 28, 2019, 01:01:18 PM
More than talk!  In fact I forgot you even had a character in creation for this game several years ago >_<
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!

You're going to have to refresh my memory, that's fallen through the sieve!

Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Mr.F on January 28, 2019, 06:51:55 PM
It was in game even. Though admittedly towards the end when life in general for many players shut the game down.

/Mr.F - Worth another readthrough!
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Crimson Reaver on January 28, 2019, 07:05:06 PM
That also reminded me I had a Photobucket account!

I mean, it's in the thread title =p
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!

The thread title?  Just how much reading do you expect me to do??
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 28, 2019, 09:21:30 PM
Bold statement for a play by post rpg site. Are you bucking for promotion?
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: InfernosCaress on January 28, 2019, 09:47:31 PM
More like shirking for a promotion.  :D

Post by: Halley on January 29, 2019, 01:25:43 AM
Oh my god, this is a blast from the past! i'm happy to see all of you well. Sadly, i don't have time for another RPG, since i'm DMing already many tabletop, and the ghostbusters cosplaying and my little girl is also taking time, but boy it's nice to see you all here! it's like an old school reunion!

I may don't have time to play, but i may have time to read.

See ya everyone!
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 29, 2019, 11:53:17 AM
=o So glad to see you! Those are some mighty fine reasons to be busy. Because you are here though, you get a say in the fate of your character in Chaerilidae. You don't have to decide now, but think about if you want them KIA, MIA, or NPC that I take over for the upcoming Magister game
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: aythati on January 29, 2019, 04:31:01 PM
Wow! What an unexpected surprise. Awesome way to kick off the new year. Depending on the posting requirements I might be able to join in for a game or two.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on January 29, 2019, 05:43:55 PM
Hooray!  Happy to have you back Aythati!  The first game coming up is the continuation and evolution of the Chaerilidae game called Magister!  I don't believe you were ever slated to join (forgive me because sometimes I forget people's usernames) but if you were feel free to remind me which character was yours.  If not, I'll have game info posted soon(tm) for new players to the game.  Really happy to see you back though!

I'm failing at modern technology, I seem to be able to read the Discord channel but can't post. I've sent Lance a friend request but can someone give me a hand?
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Crimson Reaver on February 01, 2019, 06:32:03 AM
Also, just as a quick note, I'm going to be tied up for the next few days, so if I can get on Discord properly I can answer short messages, but unlikely to have access to a PC for any length of time between about 5pm GMT tonight and 12pm GMT on Monday.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Lance on February 01, 2019, 09:39:33 AM
I did respond to your friend request Crimson and accepted it.  Feel free to poke me as your discord test bunny and if you do have any tech questions with discord when you're back Monday lemme know.

Cheers.

What if he only liked Southern Cross?

Post by: Zed on March 07, 2019, 11:24:23 PM
Letting everyone know there's been a few QOL improvements since I started this post as well!  There's some new themes available that are "mostly" tested.  I've also fixed Japanese text and the overall language files of the database, so while its not future-proof, it should be much more stable and robust.

@Jester I'm glad you approve!  Things are definitely shaping up around here.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Crimson Reaver on March 09, 2019, 09:38:55 PM
@Jester, great to see you! This is starting to feel like the reunion tour of an old rock band :D

Gallery function has been added!  You can now upload your avatars directly to the board and have a linkable place to retrieve them for your characters.
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: Zed on March 10, 2019, 02:45:22 AM
Quick theme changer and responsive settings for the main curve theme also added to assist in mobile or widescreen viewing.

Woohoo! Glad to see you.  How have you been?  I'm working on getting the next day in Magister going.  Sadly just been interrupted with life stuff but we're here!
Title: Re: We're ALIVE!
Post by: InfernosCaress on July 06, 2019, 02:10:27 PM
On the topic of alive, Harmony Gold got to renew their rights to Macross yesterday. So, their blocking of Western releases won't be ending, after all.
