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.

(RP, Open) To Kill an Emperor

Player response: 2; desired response: 2; difference: 0; result: success!

The innkeeper, a woman who looks to be about 50, walks over with a mug of ale and a loaf of bread. "These are on me - I want to hear this," she says as she hands them to you. "I better not be disappointed with this story."

A crowd of about eight people, including the innkeeper, wander over to listen to your exploits.

You are quite thirsty. You are quite hungry.

You satiate your hunger and quench your thirst by eating the bread and drinking the ale.

You make sure to gather everyone's attention as you begin your story, and three more tavern patrons wander over to the crowd around you. Your audience is now engaged and ready to listen to what you have to say.

Heh, I guess the action was too slow-paced. Closing for now.
