RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

In answer to your questions:
1) We are on the ally side
2) Sealand started this war.

Dallas: Huh. That pretty much shatters the preconception I had of you; I thought you were a terrorist group attempting to manipulate the world while it's distracted with war. So, you're trying to restore the Seastrider dynasty and return Sea Land to rightful rule?

(OOC: Dallas might not have saw them being the good guys coming, but I did ;D)

Simple to get people on our side, to try and take most of the continent, and then attack the capital, and put Martin in power. I'm also going to ask for land, as some people may want to stay with us.

Dallas: I'm sure land would be no problem as soon as the war ends; the Empire has taken a lot of it and not all of it can be reconciled and returned to their original owners, considering most of them are dead.

My last question is this; what do you need me to do?

Gain information on the other cities, I only have one EMP device left. If you could get me more, I wouldn't mind.

(OOC: also I had no name for the wanderer, however his 'name'(even though I don't know what it would be, his name as far as the plot goes) is a secret...for reasons.

(OOC: As is Dallas' first name. Not because it's an important name or a national secret or conspiracy or anything, but because it's very deeply personal to know a secret agent's first name. You know how it is.)

Dallas: I think I know a guy, but I'm not sure he trusts you enough for that. Not sure if I trust you that much, come to think of it.

Dallas: When I first moved to Sea Land, I saw poverty and corruption but was determined to look past it. Now I realize I should have looked at the suffering, looked at the oppression. It's nice to see them take back their homeland.

Martin: I've had to tend to so many of the nation's poor...and now they're going to expect me to lead them? I have no idea what to do!

Dallas: We'll figure it out together. ...Excuse me, I have a call to make.

Dallas speaks to Chandler, monarch of the Isle of Three, via radio while Martin looks at the Lone Wanderer nervously.

Martin: Did you really invade this part of the country all by yourself just to find me?

Yes, and no. We invaded this part of the country to start to find you, and to help you get to power. He had no idea you were here until after we took it. We have few resources.

Martin (relieved): Good.

Martin looks out the window.

Martin: Night's falling. I should probably rest up and reflect on suddenly being the destined ruler of a large country that is currently trying to rule the world. *pats Dallas on the shoulder while he's talking on the radio* You should get some rest too.

Exit Martin.

Martin locates a bench outside the office to sleep on for the first restless night while Dallas continues speaking on his radio.

Meanwhile, in an undisclosed location:

Lareneg: You're crazier than I thought.

Fawsum: I'll take that as a compliment. *swallows two pills*

Lareneg: Your life expectancy is already less than a year. Your mind grows ever more fragile. And you mean to tell me you intend to march directly into battle?!?

Fawsum: I told you we were going somewhere even the Acar couldn't have predicted.

Lareneg: I'll prepare your battle armor. I've run some tests, and it seems that while your mind is wasting away, you have the eyes of an eagle, the strength of a lion, and the speed of...you get it. You're about as fast, tough, and strong as an orc, if not better...

Fawsum: ...and on top of that I'm also brilliant. Almost makes it worth the descent into madness. Now, let's prepare for the second Fantasian invasion. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Lareneg: Uh, sir? What about the boy?

Fawsum: That's where you come in. Go into our traitorous homeland and fetch me the would-be king's skull. Whether the rest of this...Martin boy...is attached and/or living is up to you.

Lareneg grins fiercely.

(OOC: They know! How do they know?!? Lol)

Martin sleepily follows him in. Dallas finishes his call and stays behind Martin, then turns to look at the Lone Wanderer.

Dallas: The monarch of the Isle of Three himself would be willing to supply you with another EMP later on, but right now you'll have to make do with that last one.

Martin and Dallas enter the room and attempt to get some sleep.

Meanwhile, naval traffic to the area has never been higher. Without such stringent regulations and with the creation of the UAC, seafaring traders and travelers have flocked to the area. Among the passengers to a boat of one such group is a disguised General Lareneg, silently stalking the city in search of his prey.

It is early morning. Martin and Dallas rise, not yet aware of the potential threat to their lives.

Well first off, because of the fact we have a good portion of Sealand, they are most likely going to target the City, and they might have found out about Martin somehow. So martin will not go out alone.

Martin: How would I go about doing that?

Dallas *having glanced at a television screen*: ...They're going to release SB-132 on Los Santos? Millions of innocent people live there, and they have few defense forces, if any!

Wanderer. My apologies, but I should probably return to the Isle and see what I can do to stop this. Keep Martin safe.
