@  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.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Hey guys! So, this week is the second anniversary of my series, The Dream War, and I made a special, multi-purpose post about it. This includes an excerpt and a special anniversary sale that you might want to take advantage of if you haven't picked up any books yet.

Link to the post: http://thedreamwar.b...-and-sword.html

Also, if you needed some inspiration to go there...

HA, I BEAT YOU THERE, RUJIO

Congrats, Bobryk! Nice cover art (it matches the one from The Royal Seal forever ago, though I don't remember the occasion of that one), and the excerpt was awesome- especially the OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII- moment about midway through when familiar names started getting tossed around, and again when not-Sigurd's Great PlanĀ© came up. It's almost impossible to think that some cool guy with boob expertise from a Fire Emblem forum became a published author, or that both of his books would would be incredibly awesome, and yet here we are! Good on you, mate. NOW BOOK 3 WHEN

@Rujio Yeah, the "let's wait until *item* has been out for so long people start giving it away" tends to work rather well XD. I know you bought the first one so I'll gladly send you the second if you want it I just need to be a stalker and get an address to send it to . Oh, and there's going to be four books total.

@Smashed I don't know what possesses me to make ridiculous Photoshops of the things I'm so proud of, to be honest >.>. And the one from The Royal Seal (with the party hats) was for the birthday post last year tongue.gif

Thanks! I quite like that excerpt too-- it was one of those parts I completely forgot about until I skimmed through my ancient high school writings it needs editing LIKE WOAH

LOL I LOVE EVERY BIT OF THIS. I hope you got an A on that paper.

@Both Book Three is...well, coming! I took a hiatus while I finished school and applied to grad school and started applying for jobs and started dating more trashy women and started grad school and everything. phew. Book Three will be done whenever I get around to doing it! I posted a few teasers/excerpts on the blog a while back if you want more goodness.

Is this already over?

I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

Nope, still going on. It'll continue as long as I feel like it, or until I forget it's even a thing.

But yes, the deal and all that are still available.

Fun fact: I still haven't read this book (past so many chapters in, not very far) but I STILL INTEND TO
 

it has pretty much nothing to do with the book itself and everything to do with the fact that I do not take out time to read other than "mandatory reading"

 

but

 

I INTEND TO

I will

 

do it

 

before summer ends

 

(ideally before summer even starts but I won't make promises)

YEAHHH!!!

Also it is a solid book from what I remember so to any new members, if you can still find Bobryk's book, I would suggest giving it a chance, it is awesome that he made a book (it was one of my dreams for a long time but I sort of gave up on it even though deep down in my heart I still want to, it's just not easy writing a book WHICH IS ALL THE MORE REASON I HAVE THE RESPECT)

 

ok now with this I feel like I have to read it or I will sound like a punk, so there you go... (though seriously I took out the book from my closet a few weeks ago so now I keep seeing/thinking about it and it is only a matter of time before I read it)
