A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Hello everyone, anyone remember me?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is a tough message to write. Given my past standing in this community, and my abrupt leaving of it a few years ago, I'll understand if you guys have forgotten or no longer welcome me here. But, I owe you all an explanation for why I had to take an impromptu hiatus from DM, and then ask your forgiveness:

 

In 2012 I had moved back to Seattle and started a job there that gave me a lot of freedom to contribute often during the day. Unfortunately that stopped being the case, so I was only allowed access to the site after work. Then a string of issues with room mates using my rent money for things other than rent kept me moving throughout the year until 2013, when my father passed away and I effectively gave up trying to stay on DM, Facebook or much else. I kept going for another year or two up there, but in 2015 I took a job back in Portland, OR and moved back down here, only for my grandmother to pass away a month later. I'm not asking for sympathy, just explaining my situation. 

Following all of that, I finally began to settle into life here, therapy helping me through some of the worst of it, and things have somewhat started to improve. I wanted to come back so many times and just explain what happened or see how people were. I just hadn't felt ready to be a contributing member again, nor to face the questions or judgements. Not that I think poorly of any of you, but it's human nature when someone disappears to wonder how, why, etc. 

So, here we are in a slightly more optimistic 2016. As I said, I have missed many of you greatly, and would love to be welcomed back if at all possible, in whatever diminished role available, and would like to ask you guys to forgive me for deserting previously. 

I hope everyone's done very well, and optimistically I look forward to a future mafia game or something.

All the best,

TRL - Jesse

I think people go on hiatuses (is that really the plural?) all the time, and as long as there wasn't any bad blood I don't see why you wouldn't be welcomed back with open arms :)

I don't believe there was, but I was technically staff at the time, so I'm sure that's especially frowned-upon. Still, I'm hoping you're right!

Heh, yes, my nickname of "TRL" stands for The Random Lightie, so if you're of the dark, I expect some bad blood.

    • Bayle Domon is an intelligent man who acts gruff, but seems to have a heart of gold. Though it states that he is a broad, muscular man with a round face, his appearance to a degree is less integral than the character, IMO. He makes me think of a snugly teddy bear who could kill if need be.   At the moment my heart is quite set on Jeffrey Dean Morgan:   Jeffrey Dean Morgan (born April 22, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his roles as John Winchester on the fantasy horror series Supernatural (2005–07, 2019), Denny Duquette on the medical drama series Grey's Anatomy (2006–09), The Comedian in the superhero film Watchmen (2009), Jason Crouse on the political drama series The Good Wife (2015–16), Negan on the horror drama series The Walking Dead (2016–present), and Harvey Russell in Rampage (2018).
    • Tam al'Thor doesn't actually appear in the series except the first chapter or 2, a bit in the middle, and then towards the end again. Much is made of his fighting skills, but it's not shown very often. As such, I don't think it's necessary to get someone known for those skills to be the actor. Obviously if one can be found, wonderful.   I've not really made up my mind about an actor, but I have this offering:   Billy Burke: William Albert Burke (born November 25, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his role as Charlie Swan in Twilight and its sequels. In 2011, he played Cesaire in Red Riding Hood. In 2012, he was cast as one of the lead characters, Miles Matheson, in the NBC science-fiction series Revolution. From 2015 to 2017, he starred in the CBS series Zoo. He has also appeared in the supernatural horror film Lights Out (2016) and the thriller Breaking In (2018).   He's done quite well at playing the solid, supporting father. He's not bad on the eye either. He can bulk up if need be.            
    • There is a faint arrow next to the Revol...   If you press that arrow it will take you to page 4.
    • Grouped together roughly for order of appearance we have Tam al’Thor, Bayle Domon and Gareth Bryne.   Description of Tam al'Thor:     Description of Bayle Domon:
            Description of Gareth Bryne:
            My sources were Wikipedia and WoT Encyclopedia.        
    • If you think like a Tinker you might enjoy reading this.  I'm having trouble getting the link to work.  It's page 4 of "The Way of the Leaf...A Tinker's Song" in the Revolution One roll play area:
