@  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.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.

Hey everyone!
Well, it’s finally here! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you knew this day was coming. I don’t have much to say, except just read below to find out about it! But if you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, well…you might be a tad confused.

Title: The Dream War: The Curse of the Magi
Author: Nick Alex (me!)
The Fan Page: https://www.facebook...ream.War?ref=hl
The blog: http://thedreamwar.blogspot.com/

This is a DIRECT SEQUEL to my first book, The Royal Seal.

Quick info:
1. Action-packed
2. More focused on action-adventure than gory battles
3. 270 pages
4. General awesomeness

**How to Buy:

From me!

You can buy a copy direct from me. It’s cheaper and I can sign it. Plus, it comes with a free bookmark with my face on it. Who wouldn’t want that?
Paperback: $12
Hardcover: $20
Just contact me and let me know if you want one from me and we can meet up somewhere.

If you cannot physically meet me somewhere, then you can order one from my ebay listings:

Hardcover: PERSONAL STOCK SOLD OUT! If you want a hardcover, you need to get it off Amazon/Barnes and Noble. Sorry!

Paperback: http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649

Amazon:

Paperback, hardcover, kindle: http://www.amazon.co...rse of the magi

Barnes and Noble: http://www.barnesand...n=9781479724284 (currently a bit cheaper!)

** If you have not read the first book, The Royal Seal, I would not read this first.

Here’s an Amazon link to The Royal Seal:
http://www.amazon.co...tmm_pap_title_0

So, if you want to buy a copy, either let me know or buy one off a website. If you don’t and just want to say “congrats!” and leave, that’s fine too. If you don’t do anything and ignore this event/message…then that’s okay. I won’t judge you…maybe.

Hey, hey, Bobryk. You should keep one of your copies reserved for me. How long is this one compared to the last one? Is this likely to take me more than three days to read this time?

I can reserve one for you. Just let me know hardcover/ paperback.

And this one is about 50 pages longer than the last one. Also, something messed up with my ebay links. Fixed them now!

I've never read any of your books. Ever. Link me to a copy of the first and second books! (and sign the second one!) Paperback please! I'm buying em. Why? Cause I want to. Lol

Also, I would prefer to buy it off of Amazon, if possible.

I still haven't read the first (I have an extremely hard time reading things that aren't on a computer, it seems) but I SO want to read this lol

You're such a good writer and I'm so jelly D: and where do you live? I want to get one not only personally signed, but I want to shake your hand and then brag about it when I grow up! even though I'm already kind of grown up, being 18 and all

Hah! I appreciate the praise. It's not like I'm famous or anything though tongue.gif

And I'm from good ol' Massachusetts. Shaking my hand may be a tad difficult to do (XD) but the signed personal copies are available via ebay for situations like this!

I'll see if I can do the whole Ebay thing for a personal signed copy, otherwise I'll likely pick it off amazon here in the next week or so.

Little update:

My personal stock of hardcovers is SOLD OUT.

If you've reserved a copy, have no fear-- you'll still get one. If not, well, you're SOL. You'll have to get it from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Paperbacks are still available though! (And, of course, if you buy a hardcover from anywhere and bring it to me I will gladly sign it.)
