    Wow! I am just....amazed. So, a little while ago I was playing an arena game on Hearthstone when MrH came into my office at home with a large gift bag. He wanted me to stop and look at it right then. I explained I was finishing a game and asked him what it was. When it said it was from werewolf players on Sparkbomb, I confess I asked him if he was just messing with me (I'm not sure if that says more about him or more about me, but I digress). He insisted he was serious and after I grilled him talked with him for awhile, I finally believed him. He explained to me that a number of players had sent thanks to me for hosting the game and/or donated actual real life money for him to put together a gift for me. I have to admit I literally had tears in my eyes over it. I am still just dumbfounded by it. It was such a nice thing to do. I can't really express how much it means to me. It gives me such warm feelings for all of you and for Sparkbomb itself (and Shattered Rift of course). I know that some of us had our moments of conflict during the game. But, this is such a great example of how this is a real community and how meaningful it can be to have online relationships. In this game, I had some people that I had played with 10 years back in the IDB days...many of you then high school age or younger. It has been so wonderful to see you again. And, then there were people that I've come to know over the past while here at Sparkbomb and those who were entirely new to me with the All Stars game. It has really meant a lot to get to know all of you. And, to know that so many have now expressed their appreciation to me is really wonderful. I know that as much that I put into my games, I need all of you players to bring those games into reality. I know that not everything went perfectly (Koshka needs a much more power bow and arrow set!), but I appreciate so much all of you signing up for the game and spending all those hours playing it. Without players, my game design doesn't do a whole lot. Thank you so much for everything. And - to prove that MrH didn't abscond with your donations: MrH knows that I love dark chocolate so the above won't go to waste. I wondered why MrH was giving me a stuffed fat cat.... But, then he showed me how it could be transformed into a neck pillow (which he knows I like for car trips). The only problem is my daughter wants to steal the fat cat/pillow from me.... And, last but not least, the balance went to an Amazon gift card which I will use on buying books. Again, I appreciate this so much. MrH also showed me all the words of thanks received and I really treasure those so much. [One aside -- he says that some people who donated on Paypal didn't put in their forum name so he didn't know who it was. So, if you want me to know who you were, please PM me and let me know.]

    A long lull? Say what? I mean, I went to the Y today to work out for the first time since the game started. I've been mostly glued to the chair in my office since this game started with brief breaks to do things like work, eat, and sleep (some). From around here it is not looking so much like a long lull.... More a blessed relief to have a few silent hours. Anyway....carry on.

    Civility in Werewolf

    Werewolf is a game, and as such it's understandable that a certain amount of badmouthing and trash talking is going to occur. That's normal, and it can be okay. However, during the last Werewolf game there were several instances where it crossed the line from good-natured to excessive and inappropriate. I'll go over the problems in a moment, but first let me emphasize that the big problem is the overall behavior, not just what happened. Future Werewolf games need to be kept civil and polite: anything else will result in disciplinary action. An MC's rules need to be obeyed. We may not have the Spark Game to help you vent your quarrels with each other, but that's not an excuse for blatantly rude behavior. In the Hosting and MCing thread, I've expanded the MC's ability to create additional rules that will apply to his/her game. These rules will be enforced during gameplay. During the last game, in the excitement to make the first posts of the game, three players mistakenly ignored specific instructions by the MC not to post. Later in the game, a player rightfully abided by the MC's request to make an edit in his post. In the future, please take more care to follow instructions, and please be quick to correct your mistakes. Lastly, please withhold your complaints about a particular game's design until after it has ended. The Community Rules still apply to Werewolf, and this is something that several of you seem to have forgotten. The Staff Team has historically turned a blind eye to the spam that goes on in Werewolf, but I'd like to remind you that if you're repeatedly making irrelevant posts or Random Chat-style posts, we will be handing out warnings in the future. I understand that there's a posting requirement in Werewolf, and I understand that sometimes there's simply nothing you have to add at a particular time. But when possible, your posts should included content. Also, Werewolf games aren't image boards. Sex jokes aren't allowed on Sparkbomb. There was flagrant rudeness going on throughout the thread. Yes, one particular day was especially bad. But there were scattered cases of borderline flaming throughout the entire game. This wasn't just one or two people. This included several people, some of whom are well respected members of the community. This is unacceptable. At the moment, we don't have a disciplinary system in place for Werewolf games. In the past, we attempted to use a three-strike system that was ineffective at improving behavior. For the time being, I'm inclined to suggest the following system, which will begin with Bed's game. Two days of unexpected inactivity (ie, a player doesn't make a post and doesn't inform the MC of his/her expected absence beforehand) will result in a modkill/replacement (if there are enough players to have replacements) and a strike (or a Werewolf warn, or a black mark, or whatever we choose to call it). Breaking a rule during Werewolf, including an MC's rules in a particular game, will result in a strike. If the infringement is severe enough, this may warrant two strikes or an instant-ban. (An instant-ban would probably require something like an experienced player quoting the MC or some other extreme willful violation of the rules.) Poor behavior during a game will result in a strike. For the first strike, there won't be any punishment. Sometimes people go inactive, and sometimes a person has a particularly bad day. For the second strike, the player will not be allowed to join the next game. For the third strike, the player will not be allowed to join the next three games. For the fourth strike, the player will receive a six (6) month suspension from Werewolf (this includes both playing and MCing). At this time, I'm not sure what it should take to have a strike removed. Probably good behavior for at least three (3) games, maybe five (5), maybe more. Do you all understand what the problem is? Do you all understand that you need to treat each other civilly in Werewolf games in the future? Do you all feel this disciplinary approach will be a good one? Much like the disciplinary system for the overall community, this is still open to some debate, and I'm open to hearing others' ideas.

    Having just finished my bachelor degree in English, I am now working at a school as an English teacher. As some of you may know, teaching English as a second language proves to be difficult since English is such a trollish language (e.g. borrowing words from everywhere and keeping their pronunciations, silent "k"). So, to encourage my students to take a more active role in learning, I have introduced Werewolf to them as a way to learn English (definitely helps in reading and writing lol). They then started asking me the same question everyday: Did you die last night? And we all know what happened...

    Evidence Read at the Trial of the Knave of Hearts Lewis Carroll They told me you had been to her, And mentioned me to him: She gave me a good character But said I could not swim. He sent them word I had not gone, (We know it to be true): If she should push the matter on What would become of you? I gave her one, they gave him two, You gave us three or more; They all returned from him to you, Though they were mine before. If I or she should chance to be Involved in this affair, He trusts to you to set them free, Exactly as we were. My notion was that you had been (Before she had this fit) An obstacle that came between Him, and ourselves, and it. Don't let him know she liked them best, For this must ever be A secret, kept from all the rest, Between yourself and me. I take this evidence into consideration when I announce: Off with his head!!!

    Thanks to everyone who asked about/offered good wishes about my interview! It was 45 minutes. Within 15 I was told I wasn't qualified. The interviewer then spent half an hour coaching me and advising me on what positions and locations would be good fits. He gave me a lot of excellent feedback and offered his support in reaching out to managers who have good fit positions open. While it was a bit discouraging, it was also the highest level position I'd applied for. My interview on Friday for another requisition should be a much better fit. Thanks again for the support.

    All-Stars Reunion Chat

    A reunion chat! Hi all! I'm kittenz from IDB, first played WW there (I think), and played a couple on SB before. I was/am kittenz747 on neopets and later kept in touch with most IDB-ers playing maplestory (IGN: Ayinz) haha. I'm occasionally on IRC too. I wished I could've joined the All-Stars reunion, but I was pregnant with my first baby which was born 2 July (3 weeks early, perhaps she wanted to see you guys play xD). My husband is a neopetter as well, urbantrad on neopets if anyone knew him. Anyway, I'm happy to get to be in touch with most of you guys again

    I can't visualize the first scene at all. "RAWR, I'MA MAUL YOU" "NO WOLF NO" The wolf turns to attack but walks away. "...What was that?" "I, I don't know, give me a second chance. RAWR" The wolf turns to attack but walks away. "It keeps happening" "I told you about the mind controllers dude..." "Just, just hang on a bit, okay?" The victim just stands there looking bored with their arms crossed and glares at the wolf. This happens at least five more times before the intended victim gets fed up and whacks the wolf in the head with a stick. The wolf then FINALLY gets their act together and mauls... something

    The member lounge was filled with couches, giving it a more relaxed atmosphere than even the General Lounge. Nebiros wondered if Rift had designed General Discussion first, creating a more game-oriented atmosphere with tables, relaxed things going into General Lounge, and then gone completely relaxed with the member lounge a floor above it. A pink wizard's hat stood out from the lighter colors of the room. At first Nebiros mistook the long hair and ponytail beneath the hat as belonging to a female member, but once she could see Bed clearly, faded blue bathrobe and all, she recognized him. “Decided to go with a new name?” she said. “Yeah, the old one was getting too popular,” Bed said. His voice was naturally soft, almost too quiet for someone tall, but that didn't bother Nebiros. “I hear you're the official artist now.” “Something like that,” Nebiros said, wondering once again how she fit into Rift's plan. Maybe he would explain her role during his announcement. “I'm sure Rift wouldn't mind if you wanted to do some drawing from time to time.” “I don't think so,” Bed said. “Everyone seems kind of critical.” Nebiros shrugged. She understood that some people felt that way, but she had learned long ago to appreciate drawing for the sake of drawing and for the people that enjoyed what she drew. Except when she saw any of her drawings that were more than a few years old. Those needed to be burned. “I think the announcement is supposed to be soon,” Bed said. “We should probably head upstairs.” Nebiros nodded her assent, and the two climbed the stairs to the tower. Even though Bed was taller than her, especially so with the several inches the wizard's hat added, his demeanor and slight slouch made him feel shorter than he really was. Both of them felt short inside the tower. The tower's ceiling rose two stories into the air, and the balcony on the upper half was reminiscent of the parlor. They stood in awe for a moment, Nebiros barely remembering to lift SparkCam to take in the view. Several chairs were set up on the floor of the tower, prepared to seat an audience for the announcement. At the head of the chairs was a podium, no doubt where Rift would give his speech from. Past the podium was the staircase that led to the balcony, and the balcony wove around nearly the full circumference of the tower. “I've worn this watch since college,” a woman said to Kirby-oh. The two stood talking in the aisle between the chairs. Nebiros could see the woman's name, Celairiel, written in Mansion text in the air above her. Celairiel was someone new, brown hair clipped on the left side of her head and falling just above her shoulders. Her denim jacket covered a black-and-white mottled shirt. Kirby was tall, and his blonde hair and beard were getting long to the point of unwieldy. His gray speckled polo offered a contrast of propriety to his hair, but the pink watch on his arm was so flamboyant that it made Nebiros giggle. “How's it going, guys?” Nebiros said, walking up and joining the two. “It's going good,” Kirby said, smiling at Nebiros. “Hi, I'm Celairiel!” Celairiel said, face beaming as she reached out her hand to Nebiros and Bed. Nebiros hesitated for a second, not at the friendliness but at the way Celairiel had pronounced her name with a K sound. She had misread it a moment before. “Nebiros,” Nebiros said, shaking Celairiel's hand. “I'm Bed,” Bed said. “Right, I can see your names,” Celairiel said, enthusiasm suddenly replaced by uncertainty. “That makes introductions a bit silly, doesn't it?” “Not at all,” Kirby said. “It's good manners.” Celairiel started beaming again, but her curiosity turned back to Nebiros. “Are you recording us?” “Yup,” Nebiros said. “Getting everything I can for anyone who joins Sparkbomb later and wonders what things used to be like.” She looked around the room. “Speaking of, I need to be finding somewhere to set up for the announcement. I'll catch you all later.” The back of the room where she had climbed up the stairs was an option, but there was no knowing how many people might be blocking her view. It seemed like everyone who had come back to Sparkbomb was tall, and while she didn't mind standing to see over the crowd, she thought there must be a better option. A sudden sensation of being watched made her look up to the balcony, and she spotted Liz staring down at the group. The balcony would be perfect. Giving Liz a thumbs up in thanks, she quickly made her way up to the balcony. Tables were arranged at even intervals along the balcony, hidden from the lower floor of the tower. Nebiros assumed that anyone who planned to listen to the announcement from up here would be standing at the railing, looking down from it the same way Liz was. Before she reached Liz, Nebiros' eyes settled on something odd. The entire outside wall of the Mansion was a window, but at one particular point there was a rectangular impression that looked like a door. The door, if it was a door, led outside into the air! She had to be mistaken, but she couldn't think of what else it might be. Liz had chosen to observe from the back corner of the balcony, the spot least likely to be noticed by the people below. It was a shame to go unnoticed, Nebiros thought, since her usual sense of style was just as prominent as it had ever been. Liz wore a long black wool coat that flared out like a skirt at the bottom. Like so many others in the Mansion, she too wore jeans, and the dark skin-tight fabric disappeared into ankle-high boots. The silver on the boot buckles stood out against the near-black of the rest of her outfit, matching, in a way, with the three crows circling each other in the pendant she wore on her neck. The two said nothing to each other. Liz simply noticed both Nebiros and SparkCam before looking back at the gathering crowd below. Nebiros, having already given her thumbs up for the idea of filming from the balcony, had nothing more to say. Familiar faces made their way into the tower. Blacjak, Humming, and Sinical all entered and took their seats. TheLastStarMaker followed Traj, and she stood out as one of the few people wearing glasses. Her clothes were all black except for the brightly colored, mismatched socks that she was wearing. Some two dozen members filled up the chairs, and soon all discussion became a clamor of sound. Nebiros took the spare moment to confirm SparkCam's settings. The lighting was good, interior light supplemented by the twilight outside. Her angle captured both the podium and the front row of the audience where Kirby, Celairiel, and Bed had taken seats. The quieting of the tower told her Rift was coming more surely than the slowly turning heads. Unlike the members, who had climbed the stairs into the tower, he was coming from the hall. When he came into her view, she immediately recognized the tiredness about him. It was something the others might overlook, but she could see it in the way he smiled just a little bit less than usual. His eyes still held determination, however, and she was certain that everyone could see that. Rather than taking his spot behind the podium, he stopped in front of it, nearly within arm's reach of the front row. He smiled at his friends, letting his gaze slowly sweep across the audience while he captured their attention. “Welcome to Sparkbomb!” he said simply, spreading his arms out to encompass the audience. “That might sound like an odd thing to say. All but one of you have been here for months, and all but a few of you have been here for years. I called our last era a renaissance, a time of revival and change. The era we enter today is similar in that regard. Like a spectre, Sparkbomb retains a part of what it was. Like a phoenix, Sparkbomb is resurrected from its ashes once again. And like a werewolf, Sparkbomb changes to a new way of living. “Thank you all for coming.” The sincerity in Rift's tone echoed what Nebiros had heard in the video announcement he had sent out a few days earlier. “And thank you for joining me in this tower. This tower is an example of what Sparkbomb will become. Like the lounges, this tower will be customizable based on your input. There are thirteen lounges and four towers, and I'm certain that all of us will be able to carve out our own niche in the Mansion. All of us will be able to find a place here that we are able to call home. “In light of this, I hope that you'll be patient as I continue rebuilding.” Rift gave a small incline of his head. “I plan to reopen forum rooms and lounges over time. Likewise, the Mansion grounds are also a part of the reconstruction process. I promise, almost everything else will become accessible with time. The third floor, however, besides the towers, will remain off-limits. “For now, I will refrain from forming a Staff Team.” Murmurs followed at this. How could Sparkbomb function without its Staff members? “I want all of you to have a voice, and I want all of you to feel that you have a voice. In time, the Staff Team will be reassembled, but that day is not today. Remember, all of you are equal. Explore the Mansion as it reopens. Test new features. Give me your feedback.” For a moment, Rift became quiet. His eyes glinted and his weight shifted forward ever so slightly. SparkCam zoomed in. “There's one last thing,” Rift said lightly, trying to make it sound like an afterthought. “A few items—no, not those kind of items; let's call them relics—have been hidden within the Mansion and its grounds. These relics contain the power to grant wishes.” Nebiros' first thought was of the Mansion being reshaped to look like a pirate ship. SparkCam panned out, catching bits and pieces of others' reactions. Blacjak's eyes glimmered an incredibly vibrant blue. Celairiel's face was uncertain excitement. Humming looked thoughtful. Nebiros couldn't help but wonder what wishes Sparkbomb could grant for them. “My wish,” Rift said, “is that these relics help us to usher in a new era of Sparkbomb.” He gave a small bow to indicate that his speech was finished. Standing there, he took only a few moments to enjoy the sudden buzz that filled the tower. Having given the announcement, and having left the community with a treasure hunt to fill their time, he quickly disappeared back into the hallway. It took only a couple of minutes before the members were tearing at couch cushions and turning over furniture in their search for the relics.
