Ah, the leaves are fluttering in the commons, Jack Hallow has returned, and there are carved and lit gourds all about! It all feels so very..."Autumnal". What better time for a Necromancer? It's my favorite time of year.
Yes, dear Wizards, I am not dead, (yet). Though I feel I do owe everyone an apology. It's funny how the days take forever, but combined, the weeks speed by, and months accumulate. Thanks to a chance encounter with Fallon Shadowblade on the 'net, and a gentle nudge from Professor Greyrose, I am reminded just how remiss I have been. There have been several updates, (with Celestia now on Test, you know more than I do), and I *just* now rescued The Wizard in Watery Place. (I was half tempted to leave her there, and the ending dance routine confirmed that I should have, lol)
I am very happy to see dueling circles in Player Housing, now. It re-affirms the KI is always listening.And the little graphical tweaks continue to impress.
W101 always holds a special place in my heart, and I *promise* to be more active ( I really do!), and atm I am trying to "community build" (in a different place), that reflects the same awesome sense of community that we have here. It's become a "carved in stone" truth that W101 will never leave my hard drive, because it continues to be that special little place, regardless of how huge it becomes.
I can allow myself to feel less bad about my drifting, because I know that there's a rock-solid Community here, with a ton of talented bloggers picking up my slack. (You know who you are, and I'm proud of you!)
And, as always a "Tip o' the hat" the Friendly, who I still consider "The Greatfather of w101 blogging".(Although he's looking kinda "YMCA", atm. ;P )
W101 continues to grow, and I feel that it can only continue to get better from here.
So, yes, "I'm around", and will continue to be, as available.
