Hello everyone, I'm a Computer Sciences student from Mexico City, it's a pleasure to meet all of you... Again.

See, a few (8? 9?) years ago I used to frequent this site, I disappeared, I was young and inexperienced when it came to Role Play as well as many other things, let's not even mention my horrible English from back then... I have to admit, and gladly do so, that it was this site the source of my interest to learn and improve my English, and although I also gladly acknowledge it is still far from perfection, having a glance at my old posts makes me feel I have indeed progressed.

From those times to now, I've been having more experiences with Role Play Games, from other PbP to the classic tabletops and my university happens to have a Role Play League, where we can find others to play D&D and Pathfinder, or Vampire, or... Well, you get the idea.

I found myself tonight reflecting about how and when I began to Role Play, and I remembered this site, so here I am to offer some of my time and acquired knowledge to my beginning, to my very first Role Play. Long gone are the days of the reckless wind wizard, I feel more affinity for the ranger/druid nowadays, and as such, I believe I'll start getting in touch with the site writing some entries for the Bestiary... Though, reading through other presentation threads, I might also give a try to People.

For those who haven't guessed, this used to be Orril, I just happen to have lost my old account to Santharia with the old mail that was associated to it... And for those who didn't know me back then, I'm still a fan of fantasy, a professional daydreamer, and lately very invested into learning jQuery, JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3, I'm also not bad with C++, and know a few LISP languages such as Haskell and Racket though they're far from my favorites and I've also got very basic notions of Prolog.

May my words open vaults of good memories in those that met me back then, and may my actions forge good memories and relationships with those that didn't.

EDIT: I forgot to mention! I was wondering if perhaps it'd be a good idea to create WOFF files of the runes, to be able to post with them... Of course this needs a lot more of planning and involves modifications to the CSS or styles of the site.

Hello and welcome back, Valko/Orril! wave

I take it your former name was So Orril Miés'éfér - if so, I could activate that account again if you want. If I saw that correctly there are two spell entries up done by Orril. Or you could stay with Valko, and we'll update the old entries with your new name. As you prefer.

Anyway, welcome back after quite a while. Always good to see people showing up after quite a few years :) It's a bit quiet around here at the moment, but at least I get time to write a couple of my own things, so there's a downside and an upside to that. But I'm here to check new entries, no problem, and once we have enough another update will follow. So, yup, feel free to work on whatever you fancy, like a beast or two - methinks you still know how things work around here, because little has changed in this regard. ;)

WOFF files: Personally I'm not familiar with WOFF files, so I don't know exactly that works. Right now Santharia is actually terribly outdated as far as the HTML is concerned, as we don't even use style sheets at most pages (only at menus and such). So not sure how WOFF files are made and how they could be integrated - if you can show us examples let me know.

I actually like my new name more, so if it is no problem I'd prefer to have the spells updated to my new name.

It's a pleasure to see you again Arti, and I vaguely remember how to work the entries here, I'll get used to it nonetheless and start pouring them.

This site is an example of what you can do with some CSS (Actually... a LOT of CSS) and a single WOFF. Embedding the font is also very easy, you just have to add:

"<style> @font-face {
  font-family: 'nameOfFont';
  font-style: bold|italic;
  font-weight: thickness;
  src: local('nameOfFont'), url(directionOfTheWoffFile) format('woff');
}</style>"

It's important however that the WOFF is hosted in the same server than the site, otherwise, although there is a walk around, I think it compromises the server's security. If you'd like, I would gladly help updating Santharia's code, I'm sure it is plenty but it shouldn't be terribly difficult if done in parts.

Ok, I'll see to update the old entries then with your new name next update, Valko!  thumbup

As for the WOFFs/CSSs: Well, if you want you can try to make example files that allow us e.g. to embed, say, the Styrásh font or the Cataneo font, which is used as the main site's font, and then we can see how that works for starters...  cool

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
