    Finally done

    I applaud your patience! There are a heck of a lot of BoA scenarios, and some of them are... questionable.

    Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    Oh dear god. I made these when I was 13, and it really shows. I cringed for all four videos where you played my scenarios 😧

    Grand Poll 2017: Results Part 3

    I do believe being trans has had some to do with my financial status. If I didn't spend so long depressed and angry, I probably could've been farther along in life. Alas.

    What have you been reading recently?

    https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/fault-worm-side-story-oc-cast.549176/ We just posted it. Releasing one chapter a week.

    Continuing a SpiderWeb tradition

    I don't think it was SW itself, but more that we're more drawn to online communities since connecting with people IRL is hard as a trans person who hasn't realized. I mean, now that I'm out and living as a woman, I find myself talking to people and friends outside more than I do online.

    Continuing a SpiderWeb tradition

    Coming out as trans is a spiderweb tradition now?
  7. 10 years ago I registered on the fourth of February, 2007. I remember, when I was active, wondering how I and the forums would change in that time and what I would write about. I wouldn't have bet on me realizing I'm a girl and also not posting on SW for years. I'm so inactive I didn't even realize my 10 year anniversary with SW came up two months ago. Whoops. And yet, I still can't help but think of SW sometimes, even though I moved on. It lead to me finding dear friends, and thus in part helped me find myself. Even early on, the forums beat some of the idiotic young little potato out of me when I for whatever reason didn't look up to anyone IRL. This tiny corner of the internet meant something to me, and still in memories means something, even if I am so much different from how I used to be. Went from socially awkward, angry, and totally lacking in life experience 13-year-old boy girl in a fleshy boy suit to... still socially awkward, mostly just frustrated at general idiocy, and really only getting the barest of experience that you get from being an adult anyway, as a 23 year old woman. Uh. Yes. Completely different. I still really want to write a new BoA scenario to make up for my embarrassing attempts as a kid. I can't summon the effort, so instead I just shake my fist and proclaim it'd beat the likes of Muffins, which features a scenario breaking bug only I ever knew of, and The Triple Valley, in which there's only two versions of the valley. Most people from the time period I was active here I either see regularly on CalRef or are gone entirely, but I still wanted to post this, even if it's more of a ramble given that it is 3am and I should be asleep, but Jared decided to be in the bathroom when I needed to brush my teeth, and somehow that made me realize that oh dear I am late. Thank you, tiny corner of the internet for existing. I might post again in, say, 20 years.

    What have you learned?

    Trowels are worthless.

    Am I a Nerd?

    Well, you're posting here. I'm not saying yes or no, but you are posting here. It is an observation.

    Avernum Games

    I wouldn't say useless. Inefficient, maybe, but there could be a lot to say about the tactic of dropping something heavy on an enemy.

    So, I was right to tell people not to vote for Sarachim. I was also right to, at the last minute, switch my primary suspicion from Triumph to Sylae and Excalibur, but I opted to vote for Sylae because of the possibility that Excalibur switched with the addict. I thought that very likely due to how insanely suspicious I realized Excalibur was being. Ironically, I was right about suspecting the two, but I voted for the wrong one. The role swapping thing is quite a twist. I thought the timing was alright. Perhaps have a smaller time frame for targeting, but also announce in advance of when it's going to start so people can be ready.

    I'm not really sure of Sarachim either way. All he's done is be rather aggressive. We have more info on Triumph and Excalibur. I will reluctantly cast my vote on Triumph.

    Tridash is who he says he is. Right now, the most suspicious to me seem to be Triumph or Excalibur/Sylae. Sarachim was rather quick to point fingers, and has been a tad aggressive, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything unless there was some inconsistency that I didn't spot.
