I've noticed a trend. Ever since Rayne left (again) that there has been slowly dwindling activity around here. My mornings would be brightened each day when I saw a whole page of new posts and updates. New discussions and developments have halted. Has everyone dropped off the face of Caelereth lately? Please tell me someone is still out there... :(

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

I'm on Day 12 of a severe migraine.  Plus its Stampede time here.  So, I might be a little less active than usual, but I browse. :)  You ain't rid of me yet. buck

Just to head off remarks to the effect, correlation as I've heard it said, does not imply causation. Ergo, Rayne's absence is not responsible. If we keep in mind the time of year, and that it is in fact summer, more people will be outside, on vacation, acquiring jobs etc. whereas in the late winter and spring, inclement weather will keep people indoors, and escaping from school stuff. It's the natural cycle. We'll hit the upswing again in September.

I'm working on getting set up for college personally, so forgive me if I managed to blunder off the edge of the disc.

Yes Valan's right, even though many people have time off, they get swept up into vacations and summer jobs. I'll be active once again soon though, I just need to find a bloody entry idea.

Ahh yes, the weapon list. I don't see why not, it'd give me a chance to explore new tribes and races.

Well, I'm still around, mostly having another go at creating a Volkek-oshra language.  Unfortunately, progress has been rather slow.

Well, right now it's summer, it's vacation time, it's hot, the World Cup ended just yesterday, before that it was exams time etc. Plus people don't necessarily have to make Santharia their top priority, that's fine with me - you need to relax a bit as well to get your creative juices flowing :) Though if vuhuzila horns help with relaxation can be doubted.

When I'm not that much around I usually do stuff for the site like Santhworld work and the teaser lately, and I'm happy that progress is fine regarding the latter - I always learn as I go along and can work faster and more efficiently. So in the long run time put into working on something you don't know exactly what it is or where it might go is always worth it :D

Not to be rude, but Santharia isn't currently capturing my attention and imagination like it used to.

I've got other priorities, as my 9 days away from the internet showed me.

As for myself, its hard coming back, I've noticed. Still trying to stay active, but as everyone else has noted, its hard to make this a top priority in the middle of everything else :/

So...what you all are saying is: I have no life.  :P

Creative writing has always been my passion. I just can't escape it. It is my real world and everything else revolves around it. It's a serious hobby for me, something others rarely understand. And also movies. And books. And sometimes men...when I'm itching for some emotional angst and rollercoaster mental nonsense.  buck Which, unfortunately, is more often than I would like. Dunno why.  rolleyes

I've been less active in the last six weeks, because I had too much of a life. I applied for a job (and fortunately got it), had my PhD examined (I passed! I'm free!), erm, had my PhD-disease examined (I'm cured!), and I'm still proofreading a friend's thesis and preparing for a canoe trip into Swedish wilderness in August. (All these are just my excuses for not providing my membership page info yet.)

Azhira, I sympathize. Writing is life, too. In fact, Santharia has been very important for me, because it's enabled me to invite the fun of writing fiction back into my lfe, which for some years I had pushed aside in favour of other aspirations and concerns.

Anyway, judging by the number of recent posts, rumours of the Dev Board's death would seem to have been greatly exaggerated ...   :)

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
