Rusty and Willing To Learn New Tricks

Hi All!

It's been almost ten years since I first set foot into this forum, and I thought now would be a good time to return.
Many of you might have known me as A/GM Aglet, or even Chipperie Watertreader back in my early weeks as a roleplayer.

After taking a hiatus to get my life together, recover from burnout, and get some things checked off my to-do list, I'm finally ready to make a return for the forseeable future.
I'm aware of the things which caused my burnout last time - and thankfully they're unlikely to appear again anytime soon.

What were those things, you ask? I was studying 6 subjects full-time at university, working a 30-hour week, taking care of a family which was slowly falling apart, and losing my hair and sanity in equal measure while I tried to continue posting on the forum. Needless to say, some things had to be dialed back. Everything's sorted out nowadays, thank god, so I have the freedom to re-explore my old hobbies and pastimes.

It so happened that the paradigms of the game flipped while I was away. On one hand, it was very disorienting to meander back into the forums to find so much altered...but on the other hand it opens up a wealth of new opportunities to explore and create!

Thus, on the advice of basically everyone I asked, I'm dabbling in being a PC again.

This account was inspired by moooost of those adorable dog videos you find on the internet. A Samoyed Dorin wandering the landscape being fluffy and cute? That's basically my brand!
I couldn't resist.

Not sure where to take this PC, though, so if anyone has a brilliant idea beyond using fluffiness to manipulate onlookers into giving my character food, I'm all ears.

Welcome home! Like you, I took a decade long hiatus between my previous accounts, (Kreal Donen, Jodias Safri, AGM Harvest), before returning at the beginning of 2017.

I experienced something of a culture shock upon my return. The forum is much quieter, these days. The rules have changed in a lot of areas. Financial ledgers are a thing of the past.

But after after a few months of raging against the dying of the night, I did manage to adjust and I prefer the new system these days.

I'm glad to hear life is treating you much more gently these days!

I don't have any specific doggo plot ideas, but I did want to welcome back a fellow old timer and if you would like to RP together, then I'll consider that a bonus.

I’m excited to see you on the boards as a PC \o/ I know your preference is Modding, but I think you’ll find incorporating the new rule changes in your modding easier once you’ve played with them as a PC.

If you are looking for more info on being a Dorin, I have a few threads that either I have peer modded or have needed to reference where the ins and outs of Dorin culture is explained that I can link you to. Just PM me in chat if you want them.

So stoked for you! \o/

Welcome back! Again, most of our site's information was recently transferred into the wiki, and the most relevant articles for somebody new/returning are in our new players section. Never be afraid to ask questions, and I hope you have fun and figure things out!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the welcome

After reading the Wiki, the 'Getting Started' tabs, and the Primers articles, I'm starting to go through forum threads to see if I can get specific answers to my questions before I ask them in public and look like a potato for doing so. =P

But I'm leaning towards my Good Boye filling in for some of the land's need for a Delivery Dorin postal service. Thoughts?

It sounds like a fine idea! Sliucha's been looking into setting something up in that regards, so if you need a contact/sponsor for something like that, let me know!

Well if you think of anything - even a postcard - I'm sure my PC would just LOVE to deliver it!!
