    Hey everyone, don't know if anyone remembers the belligerent, self-important half-Sicilian asshole known years ago as Sigurd, but I'm back. I actually just started playing Arcanum again. Because it's that good.

    Hi Jonathan. Did you learn the noble art of self-criticism?

    Also, why the hell aren't you in the Left vs Right thread? And why aren't you using your old account? Damn hackers...

    Yeah, apparently so. I looked at my old posts and I remembered how relentlessly self-righteous, opinionated, and perhaps even immature I was back then. Most of my views remain similar, but I've learned to get along with people much better.

    Haven't taken the time to read the whole commie versus evil mega-corps thing yet, but of course I'll have to get in on that eventually.

    I got a new account because I'm done with the pseudonym thing. Most people call me by my last name anyway. And I'm not Scandinavian at all, unlike your fine sElf. By the way, is Sleek Jeek still around?

    Hey there! Welcome back.
    And yes, Sleek hasn't been seen in quite a long time, I'm afraid.

    Yeah, I do. It's been a while though. It starts to get boring after doing it so many times, but I think I'm due for another fire breathing party. With metal music, of course.

    I remember that we used to have the most vicious flame wars, but we were also oddly amicable at times.

    Thanks. How's Uruguay these days? My Spanish has faded considerably, but I've picked up quite a bit in the Italian department. Where's Mr. Wolf and his brother (don't remember his name)?

    Very rainy, to my annoyance. Wolf hasn't been sighted recently either, so we have other people to pick on (who are way more annoying than Wolf ever was...) Though a lot of people seem to be reappearing these days apart from you, so we might see him or Sleek back. Maybe.

    I think Seadog made a random post the other day, but I haven't heard from his younger brother Wolf since Xz gave up on the CC.

    Sorry, I killed Sleek, and dumped his body in the river. Didn't show up here for a long time afterwards to throw the police of my trail. You know how it goes.

    And then there was Icairus. How did you get that Catch 42 thing again?

    Heh, welcome back. Didn't you write that lovely story about that guy shooting everyone and cheating on his wife?

    Yeah, something like that. He was actually shooting this dude who his wife had an affair with. But you were close. I've since written about fifty pages of that story, and the character is much more complex these days. I'm flattered that you remember, though. That was back in the day when I had trouble writing a page without a killing on it.

    Haha, I remember that one. And the fantasy story you wrote which probably had the highest kill-per-letter ratio I've ever laid my eyes upon.

    Got any more stories you'd like to share with us?

    I'll definitely post some more writing at some point soon. One of the things I try to work on in my creative writing classes is stories that don't have any physical violence whatsoever - shocking, I know. I'll post one of those, and one of my more recognizable style some time this week.

    Don't worry, I find mental abuse just as thrilling.

    From this thread a few years ago.
    I did a quick search to see what was said about me after I left (I know, I'm just fueling the self-important argument, but it was just curiosity) and I think this is pretty funny. And at the time, pretty true. I've looked at quite a few of my old posts and I remember what a little douche I was back then. I blame the schools.

    So, Blinky, did you every end up writing whatever it was you were thinking of writing?
