    You don't need to grip it. It works for me. That's the whole point of being an individual. One size doesn't fit all. I've found a path which reconciles both sides of my nature. It works for me, but obviously not for you. As I said, we all plough our own furrow. That's how humans work. It's only the monotheistic religions imported to our lands that have tried to convince us otherwise. Danu and Lugh and Manannán are truer guides to me than Christ or Mohammed.:)

    Fair play, then. I won't argue. I have more in common with your point of view than with rabid monotheists. WDD is a broad church.:D

    Ha, caught out. I was stuck for a last name and just happened to be listening to "Anthems" so I stole the name! lol.

    Tsk Tsk...now for your penance you have to listen to Emperors entire back catalogue! especially the new stuff! :p

    I am keen to take up some slack (i.e characters) if needed.

    Yes you are right, I had just finished watching the end of the Battlestar Galactica series, so had "Nu-Earth" in my head! Sorry.

    Must be the endless witty philosophical banter between you and N.S.O! :p

    Oh! Welcome to Mr Fletch! Hope you stick around.

    Cynic! >.<

    (As for taking up the slack, I'll give FHN and Endless a month to show up. The fact they haven't posted anywhere else on the forum in the meantime makes me think they've lost interest, so after that you can choose between you which characters you'd like to incorporate).

    I figured it was something like that. I just wanted to be sure I wasn't being stupid.:D

    I didn't know there was a Nu Earth in Battlestar. Then again, I took the name from Rogue Trooper (2000AD). My brain is filled with old sci-fi crap.

    The Endless Dark has messaging disabled, and I've lost his email address. I've left a visitor message for Fear His Name. I'll try to be generous and assume they've both contracted life-threatening illnesses. For that reason alone they've got a month. After that, f**k 'em.

    Ok. I am thinking of maybe incorporating one or both of the characters into my next post in order to tie up the loose end they pose. If I do so, I guess I will have to wait for the all clear on using their characters. However I can still do it and keep them alive, so if they do come back their characters are still alive and they have some interaction to help them post. What do you guys think? I hope that made sense.

    It's entirely up to you. If you plan on keeping them alive then you can incorporate them into your next post if you want. If you plan on killing them off, then it's probably best to wait until the end of the month. I suspect FHN and Endless are both gone for good, though, or at least for a long time. Either way, I don't intend to keep things static just to accommodate them, considering they didn't forewarn us of their disappearance.

    Pff, some people have no staying power. Anyhoo, if Rob the Bob wants to take over the characters that's fine by me. I'll concentrate on Tellow and Aldus. Obviously Eluna the archaeologist has given some clues already regarding the cause of Nu Corinth's downfall, so I'll run with that. Possibly find an artefact of some description etc.
