    My my, I can hardly believe that nearly 20 years ago I stumbled upon this website, looking for answers about bugs in Arcanum. This was where my internet experience began and it's difficult to believe it's still here. Oddly enough I still remember all the fun that was had and how I tackled the buggy forum software all these years ago to moderate it at its hayday. Terra-Arcanum, I solute you.

    Well met stranger.

    A few of the people from the early days of the forum still turn up on the RPGCodex, DarkUnderlord is still on the staff over there and I think Canis still posts from time to time.

    Taluntain is still providing the hosting for this place

    Jarinor disappeared, we suspect he was killed by a tree
    Monkeypunch showed up a few years ago but then disappeared again
    mrnobody is gone
    rosenshyne and justafishinajar got divorced and then left the site
    friend_al_23 hasn't logged in for about 15 years
    xento vanished
    shadygrove just stopped posting one day

    Dark Elf has taken a bit of a break from this place lately, but he's the most consistently active old timer

    Nice to see some of the departed wandering back in here. Jinxed, I think you had pretty much left by the time I joined in '05.

    Did some sort of HoL bat signal go up? Either that, or I can only assume people have been called by a blood ritual.

    In any case welcome back OGs, many happy returns (of you all, to this forum).

    I can confirm that I was summoned here by the blood ritual. Wait, how do you know about that?

    With this place and on the balance of probability, could it really have been anything else?

    That explains why I've been feeling a little anemic lately. Give me back my blood, you... you... bloodsuckers!

    I went to the blood bank to donate, but they kept asking too many questions: "Who's blood is this?", "Where did you get it?", so I guess you can have it back.

    Wow. Look at all those people who has returned to this place. Welcome back and its good to see you all alive and not taken by the Tree.

    Edit: Feeling a bit nostalgic at this very moment.

    Wow, two decades, and people still sort of visit this place from time to time.
