Where can a squid get a drink around here?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Mustache Squid on Tue Nov 25, 2014 2:54 pm

Seriously.

In more relevant news, I am new to RPGateway. I have migrated from Gaia in hopes that I can meet some role players that aren't stewing preteen angst. Don't get me wrong, there are some talented writers there. There is also a lot of drama, insta-romances, uninspired garbage, and ego-riding elitists. Also, I've lost my will to care about purchasing pixels.
Someone recommended this place to me a while back and so I thought I would give it a look-see. Especially considering that most sites that have been recently thrown my way no longer exist. Why do people even try sometimes?

Beyond that I love the written language. I've had a deep and torrid affair with comma splices which I am trying to break off. I role play because, honestly, it is the best way to play with ideas. I enjoy many genres. I draw the line at slice-of-life though. If I wanted to watch inane and transient drama, I'd turn on CW. But that is just me, and sometimes I'm a bit too uppity for my own good. I am interested in anything that is, well, interesting. I hate the normal (obviously, if my screen name hasn't given it away.) I'm not going to become a better writer if I don't play a diverse cast of characters in interesting worlds.

But look at me, I am blathering on. All and all, I thought I would poke a toe, er, tentacle in and test the waters. I am looking forward to what RPGateway has to offer.

Also, to anyone that responds, give me a book you enjoyed reading. I've recently exhausted my library and I am needy for a good piece of literature. Preferably fiction. Yes, do my bidding. *twirls mustache*

Thanks,
Squid

Welcome Squid, I'm Lux, it's a pleasure to meet you.

I suppose this place should be more or less what you're looking for as I like to think we have a good variety of people here, though sadly some of those I have enjoyed the company of have since left due to personal reasons. Due to the variety here, many find something which suits their interests and such I hope you find to be the case with yourself.

As for books to read I am presently reading the Broken Eye which is the third book in the Lightbringer Trillogy by Brent weeks along side The Blood of the Fold which is the third book in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind and The Darkness Rising which is the forth book in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Sadly I find immersing myself entirely in one concept does not work for me due to the fact that my tastes change so frequently. If your interested in epic fantasy I would honestly recommend taking a look at the Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson. The Mistborne trillogy and the Axis trillogy are also rather enjoyable as high fantasy.

くコ:彡 Welcome to RPG, fellow squid!

Hope you can make a lot of new friends here! Oh, what is being said! Of course you will! A lot of people are fun and enjoyable, here. Not all RPs here are the best, obviously. But there's a lot that are fun to participate in!

And for a book, "At the mountains of madness" is an amazing book!
