Thanks, Lilith.

Actually, my message was helpful, because it helped explain things for Dark Violinist.

I love your new avatar. It's even better than the other one, which was good. I bet you change it every week. It keeps everyone on their toes.

E=Mc2

I put the above equation in to show the Moderator that this message has some helpful content. hahaha

Thanks. Believe it or not, all these years I've been using my account, I didn't find it in me to change that avatar. I wonder what pushed me now. Blind has certainly been one of my overused spells, even back when I was playing HII. I love the fact its effect is permanenet, unless of course, the blinded stack of unit is attacked, dispelled or cured. Certainly beats the Spell Power = Spell duration calculation.

Oh, Yankees. I see you're a big Baseball fan and a New Yorker. I don't know much about Baseball. But I do appreciate the sport and try to watch it on TV. From where I'm from, you hardly see any live sports events, except maybe the 2002 Olympics. I've hardly even seen the Salt Lake Bees in action. Man, I need to get out much.

Yeah, Lilith, the Blind spell was good. So were Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning. If you had a Hero with a lot of Spell Power, you could practically knock out the enemy army in one shot with the latter spell.

My favorite Adventure Spell was Town Gate, where you could select what town you wanted to go to from a list, but they left it out of HOMM V.

So you live in Utah. Aren't the Osmonds from there? There are a lot of Mormons there. I've never been there, but I heard it's beautiful.

Yeah, I've been a big Yankee fan since I was a little boy. The thing is that outside of New York, most people hate the Yankees because they have the most championships in any sport. They won their 27th World Series last year, their first year at the NEW Yankee Stadium.

Sunday is Mother's Day, so my brothers and I are taking our mother out to eat.

What happens if you reach a certain milestone/status because of your post count and then some of your messages are deleted and your post count decreases below the milestone? Does your previously attained status disappear?


Your status will change back to previous one in this situation.
And another, if you post stuff like this E=Mc2 it does not protect your post from deleting. Try not to turn aside discussion to offtopic. This thread is for greetings to newcomers. You can use HCM if you want to make a remark to one particular person. It saves time for mods to observe what is going on and if needed to clean the thread and you even don't know how they dislike to do this, what is quiet obvious.

Sorry about that.

@ DomFontana: See you around at the off-topic threads then, either at the OSM or the TRS.

Okay, I'll check out the other section.

Hey, Pit Lord.

That was hilarious. I got a big kick out of your message.

You see, I would tell you that the Yankees just beat the Red Sox 14-3 and Teixeira hit 3 homers, but that would be off-topic, so I won't.

Hello everyone , I am new to the forums and I would like to introduce myself. My real name is Adrian , I am 22 years old and I am from Romania . I like video games, good music, good movies and reading. Fav. video game ... I would say Baldur;s Gate 2. I am an old school gamer and usually reject all the crap that comes out thse days . Also I would mention The Legend of Zelda, Warcraft (not WoW), Hommm series (of course), TES : Morrowind , Nwn series etc. Oh and I do like Dragon Age.

I mostly listen to metal, hard rock and some classical music. Fav. band I will say Black Sabbath (Judas Priest and Blind Guardian come close). I could also mention Bach

As for movies , again I like the old stuff. All time fav. movie : 2001 Space Odyssey. Movies made by Kurosawa , Kubrick, Hitchock, Tarkovsky etc are timeless masterpieces.

Fav. books and author : mostly SF and Fantasy but I do read scientific stuff also. Books that I liked more .... erm... The Origin of Species by Darwin , The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins , The Lord of The Rings (+The Hobbit and the rest) by Tolkien , The Dark Elf Trilogy by R.A.Salvatore and last but not least : Stalker by A&B. Strugatki. This book is freaking awesome

Hi, bloodlover and welcome.

I'm older than you and I like Classic Rock. I saw Black Sabbath in concert many years ago at the old Fillmore East here in New York.

Enjoy the forum.

Hello, Bloodlover. Welcome to the boards. I love your Avatar pic, by the way, it's freakin' awesome. Here are the site's rules and FAQs that all newcomers should generally know about. By reading it, you get answers to questions such as "What do the red and yellow stars under my avatar pic stand for?" and "What's with the green dot next to my username?" It's nice you introduced yourself and we heard more about you. Hmm... I have read Darwin's Origin of Species as well as the LOTR trilogy and some of Salvatore's books. Great choices, but may I recommend reading Neil Gaiman's books? His books fall on the sci-fi/fantasy genre and are seriously mind-blowing.

@Gnollking: Thanks for the greeting, although I've been here for the past two years. lol

@DomFantana: How are you so sure that you're older than everbody else?

@Lure_of_Lilith: Well, I was responding to bloodlover and he said in his introductory message that his real name was Adrian and he was 22 years old. I'm older than 22, so that's how I knew I was older than he was.

I don't know about everybody else, but I didn't say I was older than they were.

And that was kind of stupid on my part. Lol. Whichever way, welcome to the boards again, DomFontana! Nice to finally see you posting here again.

DomFontana, do you propose we try and guess your current age?
Yeah, nice seeing your "formally-written" posts again.

Hi, Kushinada.

Haha. That's really funny. I guess they are "formally-written." People have mentioned that to me before. I guess I'm just not the type who uses expressions such as, How R U?

In real life, I'm an attorney, so I guess that's why I write that way.

As far as the age goes, let's just say I like Classic Rock music and leave it at that.

@Lure_of_Lilith: I still want to post, but everyone seems to use abbreviations for the different sections here. I think after ihor reprimanded us , you said you would meet me in XXX. (I forgot what you wrote.) I didn't know what section that was. Tell me what sections we are allowed to post off-topic messages in and I'll post there.

Thanks.

Hey. Basically, sections here are most likely referred to by their acronyms. Incorporating the intials to the corresponding boards, you get...

OSM - stands for The Other Side of the Monitor, a board all about real-life chit-chat.

TRS - stands for Tavern of the Rising Sun, a board all about us and our stories

You may post here too...

OGET - Other Game Exists Too is a board for any game other than HMM that we came to know and love, games such as WoW, Counterstrike, you name it, it's posted (most likely, or you can post it yourself).

The BGP (RPG) - is for people who have role-playing cravings.

VW - The Wastelands provides a wonderful opportunity to let off some steam in the form of spam messages...

NI - The Inn is a place where newcomers come, socialize, introduce themselves and get welcomed by older members of the site.

The Community Boards have a board dedicated to comments/suggestions for the improvement of this site. Go there if you have any concerns regarding the threads you've posted, suggestions for new Avatars, feedback, basically.

AHC - The Age of Heroes Coliseum is where you get your creative juices flowing.

and the Mod Squad Headquarters is a place forbidden to members like us. It's a place for Mods, go figure.
