@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.

Here is my story Dragons Blood.Kudos to those who see where i used a few names XD Hope you enjoy!

Kireth sighed, trudging through the empty field. Once a battlefield, now nothing grew here.He had nothing…no home…no family…nothing. All that had been stripped from him on this very field. He stifled back his emotions, now coming upon the rubble that once was his home. He stepped through the long gone doorway, and looked around.

Nature had not taken its time in reclaiming this place. He imagined what it had been not even a year ago…coming back from his knight lessons…his mother and father welcoming him with a roast chicken…wine…a warm home….He sat in the remain of his favorite chair, and it promptly broke, landing him on the ground….ashes. He didn’t move though. He was lost in thought. Lost in the time before his knighthood…when he had been happy and he had never known misery.23 years of age, he was only a year along as a knight, and already he wished he had never become one.

One month after he had completed his training, he had been called to a battle against raiders. They had been ransacking villages, as well as farming towns. He had heard they were attacking his home, and he had rushed to the figth, only to find his hometown ablaze, the cries and screams of agony filling the air. He had fought his way to his home, only to find it already burned to the ground, his family slain.
A sudden noise woke Kireth out of his reverie. A small group was picking their way through the village , picking what they could from the wreckage. Revulsion and hatred rose within him, and he jumped to his feet, longsword in hand. He strode forward to deal with these vultures.He had no tolerance for brigands that fed off misery and death.

One of the men stopped and pointed out Kireth to his three other companions. They laughed, and quickly made their way towards Kireth. Kireth quietly grasped his necklace…a necklace made from apparent dragon scales. His mother had given it to him, and he cherished it, whether dragons were real or not.
One man, apparently the leader, sized up Kireth for a moment,, then burst out laughing.” Hey, I know this runt! He wuz ‘er when the place got burn t’ the ground.” He laughed.
Kireth was trembling. He knew who this man was. He was one of the marauders that had burned the village to the ground. “You…you….leave here. Now!” He almost yelled.
The man laughed again. “What should we do Bork? Rough him up a bit?” One of the minions asked the leader.

Bork shrugged. “Do what you want with the fancy little knight. I get all the loot.” He said. The other three groaned, but drew their swords.

Kireth growled to himself, pulling out his kite shield. His mind was racing. These men obviously weren’t too smart. Their gear wasn’t very protective either. His training had taught him to think on his feet. A knight always evaluates his options. The men charged, while Kireth used his hatred to give him strength.
