  1. I've been out of the loop for a looong time, but this peeked my interest! It's been a long time coming, I'm glad Gopher finally got this set up. I'll personally be waiting for the famous "I don't need a personality, I have a shotgun!". Nice going @Gopher, and everyone that helped set this up! It's great to see this community is still alive and well.
  2. Xelphos, I know how much time and dedication went into your time as a staff member, and I deeply respect that. I also know from the few conversations we've had that things haven't always been easy on you personally, but despite this you did an amazing job at keeping things running. Now, enough with the somewhat corny (yet truthful) sounding formal thank you. Just go enjoy your retirement already mate, and as @Shiroi_gaijin said, go chase those darn kids of yer virtual lawn!
  3. Did the test, got ISFP-A. Most of that I completely agree with, except for a few nuances. I'm more logic than feeling oriented than seems to be depicted by this result, but it's all depending on the circumstance, as I can be downright cold and calculating which does not entirely fit the profile. I'm also more intuitive than the result would have it, but again, this is heavily situational. All in all, for a test taken on the internet it is a fairly accurate result for me personally, I'm impressed!
  4. As long as the plane has enough airspeed to generate lift, it'll fly without engines. The problem with that is keeping that speed high enough without any engine thrust. Therefor, if your engines fail while you're 100 meters above the ground, you won't make it far, since your speed will start dropping and you wont have the ability to dive to get that speed back, resulting in the plane stalling and.. Well, let's say the passengers will soon be able to study dirt samples from up close. If the aircraft is at altitude, however, you can quite comfortably glide for kilometers on end, especially passenger jets which have low stall speeds due to a very large wing surface. So yes, depending on the conditions planes can relatively safely land without running engines. If the pilot messes up the approach however, you're screwed, since you wont have the speed to circle around and try again.
  5. Well then, looks like you guys didn't exactly rush ahead in my absence! No matter, I will be back to my regular schedule this monday, so I'll be writing again as soon as it's my turn!
  6. I think this'd be better suited to the Skyrim thread in the games section. This is the roleplaying section. I'll move it for ya
  7. They were known for starting fires, so this does not surprise me
  8. Still an important job. If I end up in the air force (still debating), I have no doubt I'd be very grateful if the crew chief kept my plane from flaming out mid-air! Yeah, almost did. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone
  9. You've flown a BUFF? I mean, I'm not much of a bomber guy, but oh my gawd I'm fucking jealous. As for once-in-a-lifetime experiences for myself.. It's a hard pick, really. I think I'm just gonna go with the most recent one, getting myself stabbed in the chest. I hope that stays a once-in-a-lifetime experience at least!
  10. I'm sorry for my absence folks, although you haven't rushed ahead Stuff is kinda.. Well, my life isn't even making a 180, more like a 720. It's confusing as all hell, mentally taxing, and most of all, keeps me away from here for weeks at a time. I'll sneak an entry in every now and then when appropriate, but don't count on essays and top notch writing. As Tidinzeo said, I'm officially on break, and only very rarely glance at the forums.
  11. @JaschLooks fine to me, mate, don't worry about it. I don't actually know how my post reads, I'll have to wait a day or so and read it again myself to know if it's any good, but I don't expect it to be anything great. This character is hard to write, and I have not written a thing in months. Plus, I'm currently officially on a break from everything, but writing is relaxing. Just don't expect me to bring my A game
  12. The crack of a gunshot ripped through the smoldering Nevada air just behind John. Instictively, he ducked, twirled around his axis and with the grace of a jaguar raised the blade in a guard position. It wouldn't be any help against a bullet of course, but his instincts dictated his movements. The proton emitters sang their trusty song, a dull hum in the silence following the violent disturbance in the relative peace of the desert. Memories flashed through his mind at the sound of gunfire. The many old wounds on his chest, once perforated by machinegun fire, burned. The scar tissue on the side of his head throbbed. Distant gunfire. Screaming. His mother's lifeless body at the doorstep of his house. His mind was swimming in old pain and anger, triggered by this single shot. His breathing was ragged, his eyes burning with a fierce fire as his hands gripped his sword so tightly his knuckles turned a ghostly white. Then, a flash of light in his eyes, brief but powerful, as if glancing at the sun. A cross floating in this sea of light, a voice dancing towards him on the luminous rays, deep and ancient, severe but comforting, strong but gentle. Know peace, my child, and stay on the path I have shown you. His breathing calmed, his crushing grip on the blade's hilt loosened. The burning of his old wounds faded. As the sounds of the world slowly seeped through to his brain again, he could hear David offering their contractor one last chance to explain their true purpose. Quietly, John slipped his blade in its scabbard, the dull hum dying as the emittors deactivated one by one as the black spine of the sword descended into its resting place on his back. He crossed himself, adjusted his trusty battle armor under his robe, and waited for what was to come. Peace and composure had once again overtaken him.
  13. Well then, a fellow Swamp German. You won't find me brimming with patriotism to say the least, but it's still a nice thought to know there's likeminded people close to home. Welcome to the forum, sir!
  14. I may need this on a T-shirt. Wh... H.. HWAT?!
  15. I can't blame you, that actually looks really cool. If I had a penny to my name I'd definitely support it. For now I just have to see if I can afford dinner though
