Why the Operator?
I like to Operate in Shadow.
I tend to be fairly secretive about myself and my doings. But on the flip side, I'm actually really friendly! If you message me, I typically will say hello back. Despite my tendency to shrink into secrecy and watch from the shadows, I do try to be social on occasion. It's something I'm working on being a little bit better about with the coming endeavors in mind.
You see, there's something you should know about me...
I'm a Storyteller
That's what brought me to this site. Friends with stories and stories of my own to share. More specifically, I have been using Elftown as an experimental place for ideas and exploring concepts.
Congratulations! That makes you folks my guinea pigs!
But in all seriousness, if you are willing to play with these little games I orchestrate, then I shall be eternally grateful. For one thing I am seeking as a Storyteller is an audience. For the longest time I abandoned Elftown to experiment and write in other domains.
Well now I'm back
Old friends and kingdoms are long gone from this realm. And that's okay. It's time to build anew. Time to start fresh.
The Archives below are remnants of these old endeavors. Old adventures, kingdoms, and worlds. But they are also the start of something new. Something much more advantageous. This will be the true start of my experiments in writing.
If you are looking for a story. If you are looking to be entertained. If you are seeking an adventure...
Then I need you
But I make no promises. I force no one to take these journeys with me. Only the willing of heart and the curious in imagination. And if you like what you experience, then fantastic! I shall open more [doorways
] for you to see, in many realms I am in the process of bringing to life. As I said before, I like the shadows
. And I have been tinkering there for some time, waiting for one, maybe such as yourself, willing to brave these depths.
And if you have no such desire for my stories, that's quite alright! I am seeking to befriend. I am looking to brighten someone's day. But know this, I am here with a prime directive: to explore new realms of writing. And if you have realms of your own, then by all means, do share. I seek mutual edification.
Do note, this place has some cobwebs and remnants of the times before. I typically won't make much bid to remove them. I am the Delta Operator
. I thrive on secrecy, lore, and cryptic hints. So if you stumble onto such mysteries of the past, do not be so surprised. They lurk here and there.
But now let me cease my ramblings and take you into the heart of the matter
