The Aelyrian Experience

Posted August 14, 2012 at 10:06 PM by Straylor Leonard

Aelyria is not your standard game.

I think we all figured that out, one way or another. Maybe it was when your first PC lost his arm; or maybe it was when that same first PC died. We all have our 'wow' moments that make us realize that we're here for life. Some deny it and wander off ... only to return one day. But most of us linger and continue either as a resurrected character or a brand new one that turns out to be the perfect vessel for our creative writing fantasy.

Entry 900

(Reason for title: this is the 900th blog post on the site)

Things are changing.

That was my immediate thought when I saw the global event that wiped out the Western half of my imaginary world.

Things will never be the same again.

Gone are the 'good times' when the best kind of adventure was created randomly and without any relation to the Empire as a whole.

Those brightenings your character spent living a carefree existence...

50% over capacity

Ah, I remember that feeling.

It's like dread intermingling with excitement. All the GMs and MTs know what I'm talking about.

It's that point where gravity starts to feel uncomfortable ... because you're done free-falling. Now you're about to crushed by dynamic forces that will eventually tear you apart. Yes, it's like falling inside a black hole.

I vowed to remain at 10 threads max. I've gone over, because it's fun. And because I'm hardcore.

(Un)Finished Threads Folder

Posted September 5, 2011 at 06:05 PM by Straylor Leonard

Labor Day made me think of all the labor I've done for this Character of mine.

Yeah, "Marwin" / Xeres was my first. But there's something satisfying about all Straylor has been through. I've been lucky to have excellent (non-maiming) mods throughout the years. And I find myself even more blessed to have people I can proudly (though at times in secret) call my friends to write collaboratively with.

Looking back in my "Finished Threads" folder, I...

Eight years ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of forgoing threads. Saying "No" to threads? Preposterous!

But I guess getting older (and indirectly wiser? ) led me to realize that I have limits. Even when it comes to something I love, like writing.

Maybe I'm just burned out; or maybe it's because of RL; even a combination of everything above. But when I returned to moderating, I gave myself a few limits:
  1. Ten threads max at any given time. No
