Futuristic Skies / Re: Apocolypto (WT)

I've been rather distracted by stuff I've had to do in RL, but I haven't forgotten things.  I'll be adding more as soon as I get a chance.

A one legged woman.

A long journey over water (or under it).

A lunar event.

Phoenix Chronicles / Re: ~Foundation: Introduction~

Woooo!
 
There, done!

I have to say Pho, your writing style and flow has really come on.  The story isn't really my kind of thing*, but it's well written and comes over nicely. 

Good stuff, and keep it coming.  :thumb:

Just an aside, there's the odd  blank line.  It's kind of off-putting somehow.

Shorts Station / Beating

"Is that all?" the first man asked, sneering at me.
His friend threw my wallet to one side and waved the cash he'd removed.  "Afraid so."
"Not your night is it?"  The first assailant tightened his grip about my neck and punched me in the gut.
As I wheezed and choked, and wondered if this alley would be where I died.  Dying in a small side street where I'd stopped to take a leak!
Maybe not.  The man let me go, and I slid down the wall, gasping for air.
"Is that all?" he repeated.
"Y...yes," I gasped.
"Yes what?"
"Yes officer."

I remember that time he just appeared again, right out of the blue.

Yeah, good times, good times.

Public Plaza / Apologies

Hi there.

This is Chinaren.

I started TomeCity.com (Yars, I was also Overlord) some years ago, as some of you will remember.

Then, I guess about 2014 it disappeared.  Maybe the regulars would have guessed something was up, 'cos I also disappeared, probably a bit before it did. 

So first, I apologise for all the great stories that were lost with Tome.

You see, without going into specifics, I suffered not one, but a series of personal disasters in RL.  I mean, it was one life changing (and nearly life destroying) event after another.  Things went downhill for me, really really downhill.  I mean, it went from bad to worse to abysmal to cataclysmic...

Anyway, to cut a long and horrible story short, I hit rock bottom and stayed there for a while.

However, hopefully, I am slowly rising again.  Enough to finally log back on and think about writing once more.  I hope this will not be a transient thing, but there's always a chance.

I have had plans to bring Tome back, strangely enough it was one of the things that kept me going during the Dark Times.  Funny that.  I do have (an out of date) backup, but I can't get to my old files yet, probably not for some months at least. I do still own the TomeCity domain name, and a few others, but there are some admin and technical hurdles to overcome before I can, hopefully, get my hands back on them. 

And then I find this!  I'm not sure what to feel really.  Flattered for sure!  How did you manage to recover all the graphics?

Anyway, glad to see you all again.  Glad to be able to see you all again!

I'll be around.

~looks around~

Why does this place look familiar, and yet not familiar at the same time?

Hello all.  Well, this was a shock, and also kind of nice and flattering. 

Chinaren here.  Hello!
