    A Reason

    And yet... I have pretty much left for opposite reasons. I may be back, who knows... but I have experienced an exorbitant amount of cliques and ISRP has negatively affected my personal life. It's interesting how one can experience one thing and someone else experience something completely...

    Maciver's Guide to Grammar

    Generally.. spaces are used when using the ellipsis as a pause. "I . . . er . . . guess that would be ok." That's really the only time. I don't really follow that rule, myself admittedly. If an ellipsis is being used for its intended purpose, i.e. to supplement an omission, then spaces are...

    I have completely learned this differently where as practise and practice are reversed and actually used in U.S. English as such.

    Who/whom whoever/whomever If pronoun is subject, use who or whoever... "Sally, who once danced very well, tripped and broke her knee. We all laughed." "The pudding, which was given to whoever wanted it, was made from soy milk and real cocoa. I like pudding." (Ok.. last part was for someone...

    Bardic musicians needed for opening ball

    I recommend you seek out one known as Eryk of the Quickstrings. His abilities far surpass any I have yet seen or heard. I will inform him of your request as well, that he may, in turn, seek you out for this noble employment. May the best of what is to come shine upon this event, and may the...

    Things to think about for upcoming upgrade

    I think this is a great idea. Personally, I try to stay out of major conflicts, but when they do occur, it's nice to have a way to legitimize an action. My personal opinion on this is to limit it to distinguish male/female only... no flashy or artsy icons unless there are some to denote a...

    Addition Who's vs. Whose "Who's equates to "Who is" - "Who's that girl standing with the dragon?" "Whose" is possessive "Who's that girl standing by the dragon whose scales are glistening from the fire?"

    Maciver's Guide to Grammar

    I agree. The majority of the above won't affect the characterization...merely the readability of the text. There are some exceptions, of course. For instance, a character with a Scottish brogue isn't going to say: "Well, laddy. I suppose we should head off and find ourselves our ale." It...

    Ok... before you all freak out, these are pet peeves, but this was done in bored fun. I decided to post as Maciver cuz he has such a stick up his [deleted expletive] about everything as I do about grammar. Therefore, here goes: GUIDE TO GRAMMAR: With the understanding that typos happen...

    OOC Problems, kept OOC.

    *blink* Did someone put some rusty nails in your cheerios this morning? If so, I am truly sorry. I believe I should make this my last post. *digs out 2 more cents* before the flame war ensues. I apologize if you made a connection to something to which may or may not have been referenced...

    OOC Problems, kept OOC.

    Okie dokie. I think I have 2¢ around here so-- yep.. here it is... I rarely interact with vampires. It is not because I feel there are too many, though... yeah.. we won't go there. It is because 95% of the vamps in chat are god-modding, "oh look at me I am invincible because I am a vampire"...

    Eleminations Have Been Set....

    ((My apologies. That is true. The reason it was posted here was because others were getting involved in the storyline and this thread is frequently checked. You are not the only one this storyline is being cancelled on. We, as the group previously mentioned as the above players, are involved...
