Current My main job is finally restarting (although it will be months before it actually gives any serious payout) now that the coronavirus is finally subsiding. I'm still stuck at home, but I will be busy.

I'm not sure who's on DeviantArt here or not. For those who don't know, Eclipse (a new format for the site) became mandatory today, and the site has been ruined as a result.

Just renewed my work licenses, so I have more time here. Sense of smell is partially back; it got better and worse a few times. It'll probably take another month for it to recover, maybe longer.

Some of my sense of smell has returned. Still going to be weeks before its all back.

Bio

Hi there! I've been roleplaying for years, mostly in fantasy-type RPs. I don't like giving out too much about myself, but I am a man living in New York City (that's in the Eastern time zone, if you don't already know), over 18. Recently, I have been busy working, although I graduated from college and grad school a while back.

Did you have any questions about the RP specifically?
@Paradoxial

We probably have to do a soft-reboot at least. This was badly delayed (my fault), one player hasn't been seen in five months, and while anyone who wants to continue can continue, we may have to do a time-jump or something to "reset" things a bit.

You are welcome to join, of course.

I've heard that too. As in, Warhammer is more complicated while Warcraft is more like a theme park ride.
@BigPapaBelial

Never really played Warhammer. Or Warcraft. Honestly, I thought they were the same game when I first heard of them so many years ago.
Here's a picture of a goblin. Not a specific character, just a generic male.


@BigPapaBelial

Great! I'll wait a bit to see if anyone else is. If it's just the two of us, maybe we can continue in the PM section. Plus, I don't think my absence made a difference with Gigan, seeing as he's been gone for 5 months.

Ben-E218


Ben-E218 followed the others, keeping a close eye on Rex and the Hunter. For what it was worth, he occasionally looked at the Grunt. No suspicious behaviors. Perhaps he was just being paranoid. Of course, he was paid to be paranoid. That's what Epsilon's company unofficial slogan was, at least. Paid to be paranoid. Not that there was an Epsilon company on any official record.

The mention of war games snapped Ben out of his reverie.

"War games. I think it's a good idea. Any sniper will tell you that they key to getting one-shot, one-kill is constant practice. Like Simo Häyhä said." He had a feeling that the Finnish Sniper from the Winter War would go over the heads of most of the assembled crowd, but Häyhä had been Ben's idol in training, even more so than any of the Spartan IIs.

Ben sat next to Grikgar, one of the only seats available. He turned to look at the Unggoy, finally answering his question.

"Of course we're going on a mission. They didn't bring us here for fun. This isn't a child's game."

"If I may, Ben, don't hold it against him too much. Unggoy raised by the Covenant were tossed into battle from a young age after being put on an extensive regiment of drugs and given little time to learn anything apart from combat, and were often trained in a rather haphazard manner. Intelligent as he is for his species, much of this must seem like a game to him. At least, that's my assessment." Strangely enough, the way the Grunts had been treated offered some eerie parallels with the Spartan IIs and IIIs. Taken into the military from childhood, frequently drugged up, and a childhood with nothing but war and training for war. Of course, Phong's analysis was hardly perfect. Unggoy aged at a vastly different rate than humans did, even though they kept several features which humans at least would consider child-like; high-pitched voices, frequent naps, cowardice in battle, the frequent lack of footwear, and a fairly 'cute' appearance in terms of proportions. Of course, the average adult Unggoy was actually quite heavy next to most normal humans, and the parallels could only go so far. If anything the Brutes were the closest species the Covenant had ever had to humans, and the comparisons between the two species fell flat on most accounts.

"Are we just about ready to get on with things?" He wasn't sure if promptness or patience was appreciated by the Sanghelli, but he had a feeling that this was taking longer than the group leader would have liked.
Does anyone want to restart this? Reboot it? I'm sorry that it stopped around the time the coronavirus got bad. Things got crazy for me, then almost normal, then crazy again, and this got lost in the madness.
Should I have Ben say something? There's not a lot to do atm, but I can certainly have him move with the group and react to things.
