No no! I'm forever a silly happy chappy boy, honest, my mum calls me a chirping bird.

Let the cherished alone time with Man and Fruit continue!

Which can push this entire forum (to those old and new) into obscurity. Activity is good, however such a thing as this is a tad ridiculous. Granted i've participated, but what else is there here to participate in with these days? Strange to think that this is it.

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that there's nothing that can be done. Glory days come and go, we've had our times to bask in them.

Well let us not forget that we originally came here for Blood which was also what The Postmortem is originally dedicated towards.

I think this thread is possibly the aftershock from Atari's declination of Jace Hall's talks due to them going through bankruptcy and this thread is simply the equivalent of 'washing the sorrows' away by descending into more nonsense.

Well point is, the community would be a totally different place right now if any sort of deal went through which possibly if Jace Hall bought the rights to Blood and released the source code.

Bullpucky!

Yes, the news was rotten and brought some people down - big deal! What matters is that we have Blood, we have Mapedit and that we have creative and talented individuals on the board (yes, even one as small as this). As we sit, unless there's some form of physical limitation imposed on people in that they can't play the game, in which case I'd remind them that a machine that plays Blood perfectly can be bought for under $100, there's nothing to stop anyone here from doing something for the game - be it a small discussion, Bloodbath reports, something artsy, or just a tiny Mapedit project.

Yes, I know I have been dormant and I too was depending on Jace lifting certain limitations in Mapedit which were stifling to my creativity, but I always have something in mind on the side - I'm just not the most vocal person when it comes to my projects. Sitting and wallowing in false perceptions of defeatism benefits no-one here, and it is my charge to combat this wherever it rears its ugly head - hell, that's where I started with all this years ago.

The fact is that nothing has changed in the last eight years ago or so with the exception of Transfusion's self-destruction and a few incursions by lunatics. If anything, we're technically in a stronger position due to our now absolute knowledge that Jace is firmly in our corner, and more importantly, that he wants to preserve the game as it stands and not reinvent it and sell out in a contemptible cash grab using the IP, which is extremely common these days.

It's laughable that this thread's actually getting some form of minor resentment. Since when is it forbidden to create a jovial and foolish thread in the general section of the website? A few years ago we had threads about BoneofFear's body conditions (mostly mental) and I only remember bewilderment, humour and enjoyment.

Blood's still stirring beneath the surface, beyond the edge of reason - that's what it does. Any lack of motivation or enjoyment at this point is purely a fault of the community and something that each individual needs to evaluate and address in themselves.

I feel like this thread is not complete without a comical Cultist- or Tchernobog-inspired photoshop, possibly of them buying macrobiotic yogurt to ease the digestion and allow them to be free during the relevant time of the month.

...

I leave it to other, more skillful, posters to put this up.

And now for something a bit more mongoloid.

Maybe I should take a picture of myself playing BLOOD alone, naked and laughing with salad. In 3D.

Final week of salad before it's put to rest forevermore.
