2005-08-01 [xido]: alrighty, let me do a bit further exploration of it, and see if it is cool to add.... I'm sure it is, but I want a better idea of what I'm adding on..... and where it might be located. It is more than likely not a planet of the Selenar System, but some other star system completely.
2005-08-02 [Steel Mal'ak]: Well, it's a planet all it's own, yes. It's actually part of the Heron system. ^_^ Want to know more?
2005-08-02 [Steel Mal'ak]: I'll go check it out.
2005-08-24 [xido]: I'll say it's accepted, as long as it has been given a location in Jeriah. I like it's detail, and it seems like it has a pretty straight-forwa
2005-08-24 [Linn Scarlett]: ghehe good news for xido: Melc and I have a major campaign going (you knew that) but as info for the players, we make pages of races we encounter so ehh, the creature list is going to get beefed :P
2005-08-24 [Steel Mal'ak]: Indeed, I will do that. Thank you very much.
2005-08-29 [xido]: Excellent, in response to both of you. To Linn, I am forever indebted to ANYONE who contributes more material to the Creature_List. I think Angel would love everyone to, provided she isn't swamped with things to do......
2005-08-29 [Leara]: What do you have in mind for a badge? Just something with words, or with a drawing and words...etc?
2005-08-29 [xido]: Words, @wiki, maybe a light drawing, or more of just a cool fantasy background or design, but I particularly want some cool separators and things for the WFR pages... Like Emily did for Ionnya, and your cool ones for your house.... Something sassy like that. Any color scheme, I don't care. We can even scrap the old tag and make another that suits the scheme afterward..... ;) I dig it.
2005-08-29 [Leara]: Hmm, I might try and dodle something sometime.
2005-09-02 [xido]: Excellent sweetness and coolziness. :)
2005-11-09 [Linn Scarlett]: why is there a _ in Creature List?
2005-11-09 [Linn Scarlett]: ahhh ok...then why not another name :P
2005-11-09 [Linn Scarlett]: yeah something like that :p
2005-11-09 [Angel Dreamer]: Actually, the _ is there because the CL was one of my first wikis, so I wasn't sure if there could be spaces in the name, and now I'm too lazy to move it ^_^
2005-11-09 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm but still :P
2005-11-09 [Kim_Lundin]: Ah, another explanation, fresh from the creator ^_^
2005-11-09 [Linn Scarlett]: hmmm interesting
2005-11-10 [Kim_Lundin]: What?
2005-11-19 [xido]: ๑۩۞۩๑
2005-11-20 [Linn Scarlett]: ohhh generalisation
2005-12-02 [Nightshadow]: It wouldn't be hard...you mean the characters in your comments, xido, and if so, do they need to be separate dividers? Together? In a certain order?
2005-12-07 [Danboo]: hey all
2005-12-14 [xido]: Well, specifically, they need to be turned from font into image, then made maybe a little prettier, in order like they are, and maybe a little bigger... They look so pretty and temple-ish. Like greek or eastern flourishes.... Also see them like this
2005-12-15 [Paz]: nice advertsing but it will be awhile before anything promising happens, mind you. Those who are working on the site still have to program, and create the pages, although your support is welcome ;)
2005-12-22 [xido]: I am currently giving my inspirational, advertisementa
2005-12-22 [Leara]: Do you mean completely moving WFR to that community? >.>
2005-12-22 [Nightshadow]: I'm hoping xido knows better than to gamble a well-settled guild on a new community, even one that looks like it'll do better than writersco and musmakers and so on. (right, xido? ;P) I'm sure it will just be a mirror, at least to start. :3
2005-12-22 [Leara]: Yeah...I like the rpg community idea a lot at first, but the more I think about it, the more I don't want to leave ET to rp and have to have two windows open at once, one for ET, and one for the other...I think I feel bitter towards everyone getting hyped up to move there. >.>
2005-12-22 [Linn Scarlett]: why not copy the existing WFR instead of moving it? I mean, when the new community is up and running we will notice soon enough wether its a good thing to move or not
2005-12-22 [Linn Scarlett]: i think all good rpgers would be willing to move along with the WFR, all those that like RPG the way it is supposed to be ^_^ by the by Xido, does the WFR work with D&D-or-the-ali
2005-12-22 [Leara]: That statement almost sounds like 'if your not willing to move, then your probaly a crappy rp'er anyways' >.>
2005-12-22 [Leara]: Besides, how could the other community change it from what it already is? Because if there aren't huge bonus's, I don't see the point in going through the hassle to move it.
2005-12-22 [Linn Scarlett]: that was what i ment. sides, people that actually like rpging in the WFR would move with it. i for one would move if the WFR moved and iam sure there are more people. iam just saying that *if* we move we will sort out lots of active/inactiv
2005-12-22 [Leara]: People could easily join the other community and do the same thing. Maybe it's because I've been on Elftown for three years, but I'm trying to help get ET back to the way it was by being a guard, on the coucil...etc..
2005-12-22 [SilverFire]: Hummmm... I've seen very few people who have say, joined Writersco, and therefore stopped logging into Elftown. Or Musmakers, and therefore stopped logging into Elftown. I can't see how having an RP site would be any different. People who are on Elftown are there because they like it; chances are that won't change just because there's another site where they can RP.
2005-12-22 [Linn Scarlett]: exactly, iam part of wristersco aswell. i log on a lot and put my story up, but that doesnt mean i dont come here anymore *as you might have noticed* :p
2005-12-26 [xido]: I am not part of any other community, except for my one-time log-in to Elfpack. I DO, however, realize the benefits and flaws in completely uprooting the guild and moving it, but I don't think that will be necessary. I for one believe that the entire guild COULD be mirror-replica
2005-12-26 [xido]: and potentially beneficial things could happen from it, including the creation of more interesting or creative roleplay games or styles... You just never know. I will not ask every member to up and move, but I will, regardless, ask every WFR member to join the new community, and as was said, take a little trial run on the new site before getting all gung-ho about uprooting and relocating the guild, potentially LOSING and not gaining members. That's the way I feel about THAT... I personally have hopes that the new site will do better overall for RPers, because then it will have given us a more stable and obvious platform to build new things from, which is designed for RPers from day one.
2005-12-26 [Linn Scarlett]: well xido, whatever you decide, I'll help you with mirroring if help is needed ^_^
2006-01-12 [Kim_Lundin]: Hmm... wonder if I should try that one...
2006-01-13 [xido]: do it, Kim, you can... maybe we will compete... I am thinking of joining.
2006-01-13 [Linn Scarlett]: i might, but ive exams the coming 2 weeks
2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: So? The first round doesn't end until Feb 12th - and all you have to do for the first round is submit a char o.O
2006-01-13 [Linn Scarlett]: i still have to write a bio X_X i don't keep bios from my chars (aside from Linnerial, and that one is seriously outdated X_X)
2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: But there are bios of yours floating around all over the place - like Raudjfell.
2006-01-13 [Linn Scarlett]: there are O.o' *bangs head against table* my memory is failing me
2006-01-13 [Linn Scarlett]: ...maybe i should enter with Meldor... but then again its unlikely to encounter a Drow Overlord outside of his castle, his city even, all alone in some wayward place... where nobody knows him and certainly nobody will bow to his whim X_X and the usual 'general fear' for drow elves goes for everybody exept pc's apperently X_X its one of the things that annoys me most
2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: Of course, that's because everyone has to have a 'special character' everyone's supposed to do something, so I won't. O.o Everyone supposed to fear drows, so I won't, wow! so special. *isn't bitter at all* <.< >.>
2006-01-13 [Linn Scarlett]: i hate it when people ignore the fact that my poor Meldor is a Drow Overlord (he kicked the matrons and Lloth out)
2006-01-14 [Blood Raven]: I'd be afraid if I'd meet him. Then again, I know him as a char, other people usually don't :-o
2006-01-14 [Linn Scarlett]: yea but i mean... if some one has a half dragon char my char (linn) will be careful what to do around (if not cower in fear) in my opinion thats just what the half dragon deserves for being a bloody half dragon X_X same with drow and other such species that will frie you if you annoy them
2006-01-15 [xido]: meh.... drow are pussies, pardon my english french. Socieities like the Yaun-Ti and Illithid are way scarier civilizations and cultures.... no contest. But then I have a bias. Drow make me spit in anger.
2006-01-15 [SilverFire]: The tournament was designed with the view that people would be entering their pre-existing characters. That's not to say we don't want you to create a character for it, but... just pointing out, Characters created just for the tourny won't have any advantag at all over much-used, much-loved carefully refined characters :P
2006-01-15 [Blood Raven]: drow are sadistic, but I'd vote for Illithid being scariest. I never really got deep into Yuan-Ti
2006-01-16 [Linn Scarlett]: Meh Yuan-Ti are wannabe dragons :p i vote for Illithid scariest & uglies too, but i am a pervy-elf-fanc
2006-01-20 [xido]: True, but Yuan-Ti (unlike the naga, whose bloodline was cursed) are descended from the ancient Cults of Anakim, the serpent lord, and creator of science, alchemy and magic. The ancient Anakim blood is what has kept this people alive throughout the eons. Illithid are just straight up freaky and terrifying. And, it could be that I am no elf-perver. It's the ears... I'm not down.
2006-01-21 [Linn Scarlett]: the Illithid always make me think of Cthulu O.o' hmm i think I heard that story about the Yuan-ti and the Ancients *recently replayed NWN*
2006-01-21 [Kim_Lundin]: I love that game. Cthulu... hmm... perhaps I could use him in some RP sometime...
2006-01-21 [Linn Scarlett]: ohhh shameless advertizing :p dang still need to make a char for that one too C_C
2006-01-21 [SilverFire]: Shamless?? Does running away count for nothing these days? O.o
2006-01-21 [Linn Scarlett]: pah, you are running just to pretend to be shameful ;)
2006-01-21 [Zab]: Hello.. :P Nice page..*don't really know what to say*
2006-01-21 [xido]: lol! shameful shameful.... I dunno, Zab, you could say you love puppies, but if you're allergic, that's prolly a lie. x.o?
2006-01-21 [Zab]: XD I lve puppies! But this page is about rpg, isn't it? :P
2006-01-21 [Kim_Lundin]: Yeah, but you can like puppies anyways ^^
2006-01-21 [Zab]: *grins* Oh, that woldn't change my love for puppies..:P
2006-01-31 [zilzmaer]: I definitely vote for Mind Flayers as scariest. I would much rather have the yuan-ti as my enemy than the drow, though. The yuan-ti are more than just dragon wannabes, but the drow earned their reputation through eleven thousand years of being as cruel as, if not crueler than, most demons.
2006-01-31 [zilzmaer]: Also, drow are very warlike, if not the best organized. Sure, the average yuan-ti would be far more than a match for an average human, but an average drow is as skilled compared to yuan-ti as an average yuan-ti is compared to humans.
2006-01-31 [Kim_Lundin]: Define 'average' ^_^
2006-01-31 [Raerlas]: mind flayers are just plain wrong...encoun
2006-01-31 [Blood Raven]: actually I believe yuan-ti are more organised than drow. Drow have a tendency to hate eachother and 'dispose' of possible political adversaries, where yuan-ti merely crave world domination. They just aren't as well suited as mind-flayers (who have dominated the world once already, but their empire crumbled, it's how the githzerai and githyanki came into being more or less)
2006-01-31 [Raerlas]: ....hmm...i think thats right...but theres something nagging at the back of my brain. Yuan-ti also create others with a bite i believe...a bit that can also kill if my mind recalls the fight with them clearly.
2006-02-02 [Blood Raven]: they're not contagious like vampires and lycanthropes I believe...
2006-02-02 [Kim_Lundin]: I've never heard of Yuan-tis changing others with a bite either...
2006-02-03 [Linn Scarlett]: *shakes head* i think they make babies like all humanoids do...
2006-02-03 [Linn Scarlett]: The Ancients created eachother though (the NWN creator race, the Yuan-ti decent from them)
2006-02-04 [Blood Raven]: I've never really studied those forgotten realms histories yet, although they're worked out very well... I only know what they tell you in NWN and I know stuff about magic, from Magic of Fearun... I like the Shadow Weave ^^
2006-02-05 [Linn Scarlett]: *nodds* same here
2006-02-05 [Pinkdonkey]: (A few minutes of advertising before we get back to the show ... sry couldn't stop myself ... lol) => Elftown Open Marketplace is up and running, for players of all levels as long as they know how to have fun ! :D
2006-02-05 [Kim_Lundin]: Yay, ads! The bathroom breaks god sent so we don't have to miss parts of the movies ^_^
2006-02-06 [xido]: lol, you're all crazy.... I think that's why I love it here so much, actually.... Yes, and everyone who is anyone should begin a guild of any sort, so that more and more players will find their niches in the groups and organizations of Elftown's roleplaying underground. Hehe, that is how the Guild will achieve world domination, taking the illithid's place. As for Yuan-Ti, there is no average... and they began in the fantasy realm for much the same reason that dragons did... their souls cannot die, and will incarnate in every aeon of the material plane's rebirth. No matter how many times the universe collapses, Dragons, Titans, Fae, Anakim (Yuan-Ti) and deities all survive in this way.
2006-02-06 [xido]: And I don't know much about Neverwinter Nights, Faerun, or Forgotten Realms unfortunately, but I do know that the Yuan-Ti are without a doubt the same thing that the Anakim cults or 'serpent cults' that have fact based in earth mythologies and legends, and that tales tell of an ancient and indestructible bloodline ('blood of the serpent') that would one day rule a mighty empire (probably already happened), and would survive every turn of the aeons, including apocalypse and complete destruction. The Annunaki and Nephilim, I believe, were a part of our own history in that sense, but then that is all conjecture. As for the games I run, one only becomes Yuan-Ti through ritual and tests.
2006-02-06 [xido]: Even in D&D, I don't think it's a bite... but I'm one for canonization, either... so it could potentially be a bite... just a different kind of yuan-ti...
2006-02-06 [xido]: HUGE FAVOR TO ASK EVERYONE: Please check out the Elftown Water Fountain Design Contest for me, and see if you have any ideas, comments, or questions about it, so that I can have a sort of FAQ about it before it is opened.... when I have three other people's approval for the layout and format of the contest, it will be opened soon after... Thank you, and please msg me with these comments, etc. I would prefer to have them in my mailbox instead of on this page, or even that one.... send your words straight to [xido]....... awesome, thank you immensely.
2006-02-11 [xido]: Announcement for Mods and WFR Update Helpers! I am hoping to have a bit of a push on the renovations, since we are on call to have some progress done for a ET News item to go up. I wanted the ET Fountain Contest to go up at the same time as this News item, so it is either work more and faster on the WFR, or open the Contest before it can be well-advertise
2006-02-12 [Nightshadow]: Oh dear. Okee. o_O
2006-02-12 [xido]: No worries, I am taking care of most dire updates myself at the moment, so that our full updates are at least half-finished by the time the ET News item goes up... WFR Rules & Guidelines is up next... All others should be at least half-done. WFR Art, including a new member badge, is in the works. Most other updates are either done or worked upon. ;)
2006-02-18 [xido]: Good to have. Any stories there yet?
2006-02-23 [Piercedskull]: *walks in causiously*Hi.
2006-02-23 [Pinkdonkey]: Hello !
2006-02-23 [Piercedskull]: *smiles and cirties*May i join?
2006-02-23 [Pinkdonkey]: The WFR you mean ? Well you need to start by making a character , go see the Character page and it'll tell you there. Just ask if you want any help. I'll be online for a bit so just tell me if you've got any trouble.
2006-02-23 [Piercedskull]: Ok.
2006-04-12 [Nominal_sidus]: hey how long does it take for an application to be accepted?
2006-04-12 [Linn Scarlett]: long if its a bad char :p
2006-04-13 [Piercedskull]: ??
2006-04-13 [Linn Scarlett]: *chuckles evily*
2006-04-14 [Piercedskull]: grrr]
2006-04-15 [xido]: ooooh, with growling even... Well, my dear, [Leara] is super busy supreme lately, and [Blood Raven] has a lot on his plate, but I'm sure that if you post a really good description of you character of choice and msg them with a quick heads up to make sure they know you have one, I'm sure they'll get to it within the week, or by next weekend if they are busy for Easter..... Just be patient, and begin RPing in Open areas or around anywhere in Elftown's Community... Feel free to make your own wikis and invite friends to them to play with you... Then, when your char is accepted, you can plaster the page link all over the pages you have created and be proud of you achievements..
2006-04-16 [Piercedskull]: ..............
2006-04-16 [Kim_Lundin]: Short said: Send a message to [Leara] or [Blood Raven] so that they know you have a description posted, then you can play on Open areas while you wait for the character to be accepted.
2006-04-16 [Piercedskull]: ..............
2006-04-16 [Linn Scarlett]: *hits piercedskull in the head with a random blunt object* read the tekst again
2006-04-16 [Linn Scarlett]: ...and with text i mean the *whole* wiki
2006-04-16 [Piercedskull]: *runs around in circles screaming*
2006-04-17 [Kim_Lundin]: ... ... ... *sigh*
2006-04-17 [Piercedskull]: AAHHHH!!!
2006-04-18 [Kim_Lundin]: O-okay... this is getting awkward...
2006-04-18 [Linn Scarlett]: *shakes head* Kim, some people are not like we are... *ominous voice*
2006-04-18 [Piercedskull]: tomato?
2006-04-21 [Kim_Lundin]: ... Don't even think about it, I won't fall for your trick to make me do random chatter.
2006-04-21 [Piercedskull]: Or a mango
2006-04-21 [Kim_Lundin]: Thank you, NamelessMerc, I was being overrun.
2006-04-21 [Piercedskull]: Ill shutup now..
2006-04-23 [Linn Scarlett]: good boy *hugs Kim* it's ok dear
2006-04-27 [Piercedskull]: ^^
2006-04-27 [Kim_Lundin]: o.O Thanks...
2006-05-08 [moonscale]: Okay...now I'm afraid to say anything, but here goes.
2006-05-08 [moonscale]: I had my character waiting for approval for over a month now, do you have any other suggestions? I did message someone...
2006-05-08 [Linn Scarlett]: *looks at Kim and Raven*
2006-05-09 [xido]: Kim, Linn just nominated and I second that you just received character review status until she gets an adequate reply and/or char page... please and thank you. ;) I'll comment on it on the application page, moonscale. Sorry for the wait. ;)
2006-05-09 [Linn Scarlett]: ahhh we are only human ---or atleast partually *pets xido*
2006-05-09 [moonscale]: ? okay..Thank you!
2006-05-13 [Amanda Bastian]: (can I join this too? lol. ^^)
2006-05-13 [Linn Scarlett]: maaaaybe :p
2006-05-15 [Kim_Lundin]: Heheh, of course you can.
2006-05-16 [Kim_Lundin]: I'll take a look on it ^_^
2006-05-16 [Firous]: Yay!
2006-05-18 [Sdhoirm]: As will I. Always looking for new chats and what not ^^
2006-06-02 [xido]: Would you like that wiki listed on any other WFR pages, Firous? WFR Quests is a good place, and WFR Games is for that if you want too. Kim, I let you know on the other page as well that it's cool for you to comment/accept players.
2006-06-02 [Firous]: That would be nice...right now the game's on hold while I look at prospective players and one of our main players went to Australia for a couple weeks. So now's my time to recruit. ^.^
2006-06-06 [Kim_Lundin]: Cool! A new banner! ^_^ or perhaps I've been away for longer than I thought...
2006-06-06 [Firous]: Nope...that's new. It's neat!
2006-06-07 [xido]: Thanks guys. I made it meself.... I will be uploading some images for use, so others will be able to copy or work with what I have posted. I want something more developed, but I don't know what.... It is good for now... But I still need one for the Wiki Fiction Roleplay, so we can adequately integrate the Wiki Sci-Fi Roleplay into the Guild once more.
2006-06-09 [Kim_Lundin]: I miss Photoshop, the program went *poof* when mom's computer crashed :(
2006-06-13 [xido]: Oh, I'm sorry Kimster.... It's okay, I'll make it up for you when you see all the cool new banners I made when I got bored on Sunday, and it will make you happy again. I promise. Even have one for the Guild Knights and the Guards, each. X)
2006-06-13 [Linn Scarlett]: Awww new banners are always good :)
2006-06-17 [Linn Scarlett]: I found I found, I am not stupid you know ;)
2006-06-17 [Linn Scarlett]: maybe just a little daft ;)
2006-06-18 [xido]: Yes, but you just never know... I have been making new WFR pages left and right, and it is difficult to keep everyone on the same page sometimes, you know? ;) x.op
2006-11-18 [Amanda Bastian]: Wow! an rp?
2006-12-05 [xido]: Better! A Roleplay and Creative Writing Guild, which houses an amazing amount of members, on the WFR Guild Members page. Also let me know if you'd like your Dragon Riders wiki posted on the WFR Games, and if you are interested in being a member or not (see WFR Application Page for more on that). ;)
2006-12-05 [Amanda Bastian]: Awesome!!! I'd love to have my rp posted there. ^_^ I'm always ready for a good role-play.
2006-12-18 [xido]: I will add it, but are you wanting to post a character bio to apply for Guild membership, or do you simply want the WFR to support your page? If you send me a link to a character bio using the template on WFR Application Page, I will add it myself to the WFR Guild Members.
2006-12-18 [Amanda Bastian]: okay ^_^
I'll go ahead and make a bio. Can I have an evil character?
2006-12-19 [NamelessMerc]: You can have any character you want ^_^; It's why this place is so popular. As long as they're in-depth, well thought-out and original, any character is acceptable.
2006-12-19 [Amanda Bastian]: Awesome! thanks!
2006-12-19 [xido]: 'Tis true, and well said, Merc. Brownie point earned. XP
2006-12-20 [NamelessMerc]: Yay, brownie point! How many do I need for a brownie? XD
2006-12-20 [xido]: *hands [NamelessMerc] a brownie* (A SPECIAL BROWNIE)
'Little does he know that the brownie I am referring to is not really a tasty treat at all, but a small sprite-like fae, similar to a gnome or halfling, and that they're clever little lads, and not to keen to law and order... Hehehehehe.'
2006-12-20 [Amanda Bastian]: lol
2006-12-21 [Kim_Lundin]: ... Ah, Brownies *laughs* that's a good one.
2007-02-11 [Kim_Lundin]: ... Okay, now that doesn't look right.
2007-02-12 [Kim_Lundin]: I probably don't have to say this, but just in case: I don't think poking at those links is a good idea.
2007-02-13 [Noexistantanymo]: *Pokes the links*
2007-02-14 [Kim_Lundin]: ...
2007-02-14 [Angel Dreamer]: ...Well, there's the downside to being open to the internets at large.
2007-02-17 [xido]: No poking those links. They carry internet diseases.
'Tis why I love the 'Delete' button. ;) Please forgive the spammers, they not know not their erring ways.
But it is good to see you guys all keeping watch for me. ;) I love you all.
2007-02-18 [Darian Hawke]: wow wow. There are not enough hours in the day to go thru all the amazing wikis in Elftown. So many amazing games, art, ideas, people, etc'... Truly wonderful. I'm proud to be part of Elftown!
2007-02-21 [xido]: Agreed, Darian. Glad to have you around! ;)
2007-03-09 [Kim_Lundin]: Oh, by the love of GACK! Not another one!
2007-03-10 [Firous]: Kill it!!
2007-03-12 [Kim_Lundin]: Xido's been noticed.
2007-07-18 [IcyFollower]: someone say browniesMUAHAHAHAHA
2008-01-14 [xido]: All moderators need to be aware of the comments made by me on xidoraven studios. Please reply to me by email. If you don't know my email, please ask me for it by message.
2008-01-19 [xido]: Please, if you watch this page, take note:
Hasbro is suing these Indian guys. They made an application, and so did Hasbro, so now the big guys are trying to squash the little guys. It's the age old story; I'm sure most of us have used it a time or two in our own campaigns.
This is the moment of truth.
I do not speak on behalf of the Guild when I say this, but as a human being with goals, dreams, and aspirations to do something with my life.
I have been playing D&D for years. I know we all have bought at least a hundred RPG publications, games, or supplements from Hasbro over the years. Try and add it up for yourself. Now figure that most of us have spent similar money.
I am broke as a joke right now. It's not even funny. It's scary.
I just got in touch with Wizards of the Coast Corporate email in order to work with them in connection to publish WFR-oriented content with the d20 mechanics logo, through my own personal business endeavor with my long-time friend [Torr-maat]. They have given me good replies, and I am awaiting more news.
Now I, like you may be currently, have learned that Hasbro - the makers of Scrabble - are suing these two Indian applications creators (a craftsperson like you or I) in stead og working with them legitimately and ethically in order to better negotiate a method of keeping Scrabulous alive. It mainly has to do with the fact that Hasbro is ALSO releasing an online version of Scrabble, which would mean that THEY MIGHT LOSE PROFITS. O.o
Let me tell you something, Hasbro. I have bought your products for years, and must continue to do so, in order to stay current in my creative field. Don't you DARE tell me that you are willing to squash the little guy for your own benefit, or you will see heinous results!
Now, having said my piece:
I am approaching all moderators of the Guild, as well as those who are willing to listen.
The time is now. If you ever had a dream, if you ever wanted to be something more than you are, and if you have EVER studied ANYTHING to do with business ethics, stand with me now.
To Hasbro: I have purchased your products, and will continue to do so, but if you hurt these Indian boys, I will NEVER play scrabble again... I will NEVER play an online version of Scrabble made by Hasbro... And I will do everything I can to make sure that your profits fail miserably in the face of independent adversity.
We as people are allowed to aspire. Give us an outlet, give us a say, give us back our spending power. We are humans too.
I do not yet speak for the Guild, but the Guild must know. This is not the time to say that it doesn't matter, because it DOES, and it IS important to defend what you believe. I believe that this is corporate insanity at its finest.
To Hasbro: if you want your marketing campaign for 2008 to succeed, you will act in an ethical manner, or you will have the WFR Guild Members acceptance, appreciation, and wealth no longer.
If you are not a member of Facebook.com, I do not encourage you to join a new site that you would not otherwise join. But if you ARE a member, please access the following application, and sign the petition to Save Scrabulous:
Keep watch for more updates. Those of you who have my email, please stay in touch. Guild Knights, you are being called to arms. We are defending the People this time, and it could get gruesome.
2008-01-19 [Firous]: As a moderator and a Guild Knight I will stand. I am not a member of facebook but if there is any other way to help let me know and I'll walk the path.
2008-01-20 [xido]: Thank you. Noted and appreciated. Please continue to act in an ethical manner, and we will make a proper stance in respect of our potential business clientele.
It is my opinion that this is a moment where Hasbro and Mattel are in a position to do the right thing. I certainly hope that they do.
