Hey,

I like to stay (mostly) in character in game so I'll say this here, I'm having a good time with the environment here.

Nice job, CavemanJoe! I'm impressed.

Also want to thank folks who have been welcoming in game, you know who you are.

Games like this keep their lasting appeal from having good, active developers and a good community. Looks like both here so far!

Beeker

I first joined about a year ago, and I think that what you've just said pretty much sums up why I'm still here.

I'll second that, and raise you another year or so. 'Tis been a good game and community all the way since the Pilot.

What can I say? It's very little over a year for me, and I look forward to the next one. It's rare that I log off without having had a good laugh at something, and not a little part of the rest of the day is spent thinking about what I've learned and read, whom I met, what's going to happen.

Heck, even with the recent Rook influx and the corresponding decrease in the signal-noise ratio I'm still amazed how all that noise - it may still be unnerving or annoying - it just sucked up in a pink, very sticky cloud of cotton candy piled upon well, everyone who's not exactly asking for a sterilization.

This is my first and only RPG, I love it, and insomnia never was this fun before.

Keep it up. All of you.

Just a few months myself and still loving every second of it.

Especially the slapstick. And malt whisky.

...I lost track of how long I've been here. It's too surreal. I've had a lot of fun here, the people are all very friendly, and funny. Time flies...

...I'm going to be sad when school starts up again and my time disappears. Should I thank you for making this addictive, or curse you for being great at it? Either way, I like it here.

Been playing for about 5 or so months. I am incurably addicted to this game. It's the only RPG that has ever held my attention for long periods of time.

It is really fantastically done. I've hopped through a lot of RPGs before (spent 5 years at the last one) and originally picked this up just as a curiosity. Boy howdy, did I underestimate the appeal this would have to me Smile

Wonderful, all of this. I've tried bundles of RPGs, all of them bored me. Even Kingdom of Loathing, one of the better ones out there, bored me to death. Improbable Island? Not so. And I am delighted at its mix between silliness, hilarity, extreme creepiness, and a certain tinge of Douglas Adams spread around everywhere.

I must say, Caveman, bloody nice job you've done here. Keep it up!

That's cause KoL, at least when I played it, is decidedly single-player with an optional chat room tagged in a side column. (Haiku channel ftw)

Here it's more RP-community focused, so despite my jungle fights being solo, the rest of the time I feel like part of something. Except when I'm in CyberCity... :p

At least, that's my take on it.
