What are you up to?

Postby Porter » Fri Nov 29, 2019 8:45 am

Well, for some reason this place popped into my head.

These days, I'm still a high school chem teacher, basketball coach, and still living on. I still play The Way once a year. Although I never grind, I edit the game where I can just cheat through and watch the story.

Wow, nostalgia...
Hey guys! Been a few...years! Nowadays I work as a furniture salesman for a company called Happy Sleeper, haha. Kinda suits me, not gonna lie.

You all helped me through the most lonely and isolated period of my life. It’s been a while but I am always going to be eternally grateful to this group, and Lun, for bringing us all together.

I wish The Way was a full game! Maybe on Switch or something! I’d play it again for sure...heck, I finally got a nice gaming laptop, maybe I’ll give it a run-through just for old times. :)

Hope every one of you is well!! I love you all!!!

- Jon (Glenn) :)

Edit: Oh and duh! Big PS: I am now engaged! She’s an amazing woman who loves playing Skyrim and likes to work out with me ;) I really lucked out, and I’m glad I made it to this part of my life to meet her! I can’t emphasize enough the role you all played in helping me get here. Take care!!

Wow, haven't thought about this place in ages, for some reason I was thinking about the Way today and wound up here. I guess I'll have to play it again and see how it holds up, I think I've forgotten enough of the story now that it will be a really fun experience :-)

I'm teaching intermediate ancient Greek at the moment while I (slowly, painfully) finish my dissertation. Then, who knows? Professor? Editor? I'd love to write for a living, but that's pretty tough. Oh well, I'm optimistic (I'm engaged too!)

Maybe I'll have an update in another 10 years when I'm randomly thinking about this place :-P

Hope all you guys are doing well, wherever you are

Jeez, This game popped into my head in the shower and I thought I would take a look to see whats going on.

I went through probably 10 different fields of work before settling in as a cook. Sous Chef at a awesome local restaurant now.

Now I am off to read through the good ole IRC quote. We were fucking hilarious.

Hope none of you are sick. I've got bad lungs from getting pneumonia a few years ago so I'm staying inside as much as possible.

I'm 29 instead of 13 and I'm an attorney now. Being here is kind of bittersweet except the sweet is nostalgia and the bitter is having to read how much of a dipshit I was.

I've been spending an excessive amount of time on the internet during quarantine, revisiting my online history as a way to think about my present online identity. It is truly horrendous to read through my old posts here, when i was 13-14 years old--but I'm also very grateful that this message board continues as a living archive. I remember having a lot of hilarious times here, and although I was banned (repeatedly?) and seen as a nuisance and a villain, I'm grateful to the community. I wonder if Jeramyu will ban me again outright.

I'm 29 too, like Greatchickenman, who I remember being a spammy brother-in-arms. I am certainly not a lawyer or a teacher, however: most of my 20s has been spent working as little as possible as a server in fancy restaurants, and spending my time on my creative pursuits, as well as a jobless double major in Philosophy and Art History & Film Studies.

I invite anyone who cares to follow me on twitter. @theinvertedform

2005 was the day my life changed when I googled 'How to make RPG'. I've been a fan of PSX RPGs at the time and wondered how one could create games. That led me to the RM scene and also to this game.

This game has been such a huge inspiration for me that like others, thoughts of it will just suddenly pop up leading me back to checking the forum. Anyway, I'm a software dev now but unfortunately not a game dev.
