January 2020: My family in Australia has been affected by the bushfire crisis, and my home in Australia has been destroyed by fire, including almost everything I own. I'll be travelling extensively throughout January into February, and my availability and Godwiki presence will be unpredictable. I may be too busy or sad to do much; on the other hand, it may be a valuable distraction at difficult times. So who knows?


July 2019: Returning from a ~6 month absence. Catching up on messages and what's happened. Sorry if I haven't been responding for, y'know, half a year.


April 2018: Returning from a ~3 year absence I'm pleased to see I've cheerfully overshot the Honoured Renegade achievement, and still have a top-50 position in a couple of Pantheons! Getting to grips with the many changes and improvements before I become too active again. For all those that have contacted me over the last few years, my apologies for the very, very late replies.


I am in Canberra, Australia, so UTC+10 the Czech Republic, so UTC+1 Australia, UTC+10.

I will happily usually give feedback on chronicles if asked nicely, but please see January 2020 note above.

In fact, I will pretty happily help with anything if asked nicely, if RL doesn't get in the way.

I am mostly active in the Workmen's Area and Main Square. It's not that I don't like roleplaying, I just don't have enough time for it :)

Things Wot I Dint Dun

To-Do

This is mostly for me, and out of date anyway, but... you may look.

  • Creators_Manual#Images: Change the guide so it's link first, then upload. Infoboxes. Copyright.
  • Complete this to-do list.
  • Rewrite Boss-monsters#Dungeon_Boss-Monster_Classes such that it no longer references classes at all. Done 14 November 2018
  • Linkify every single entry in Omnibus List. 3 November 2018 (UTC) (Done (Important.png) and undone as it made the page unusable on mobile)
  • Integrate Omnibus List's monsters, equipment, and skills with the corresponding List ofs.
  • Update the below list of Favourite rejected ideas (or delete it). Removed, possibly forever.
  • Create an article for every page missing in {{Navboxtaverns}}.
  • Extensive rewrite of the Godwiki Guidebook and all related Creators Manual pages: These were overhauled by User:WardPhoenix (amazing), have to read through his great work!
    • Improve plain-english explanations of the how-to bits as much as possible.
    • Improve information available to mobile users (perhaps make use of {{sign}} to highlight mobile-only advice?)
    • Guideline regarding mixing masculine and feminine pronouns/protagonists? Good idea, bad idea? (See brief discussion
  • Continue slogging through updates to History. Haven't done a rigorous check, but this appears to be up-to-date now.
  • Point of interest hasn't been done yet. (ref. Shrines is relevant.) Something interesting moved (written and moved by GodS624 ).
* Figure out how to structure the seasonal events, and sort out the horrible navbox I made.

«
This may sound like gibberish to you, but I think I'm in a tragedy.
«
— Harold Crick

On average, I'm a good person. What more can you hope for?


«
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
«
— Elie Wiesel

Specialties: Marginalia; Verve and gusto


«
Les grandes personnes m’ont conseillé de laisser de côté les dessins de serpents boas ouverts ou fermés, et de m’intéresser plutôt à la géographie, à l’histoire, au calcul et à la grammaire. C’est ainsi que j’ai abandonné, à l’âge de six ans, une magnifique carrière de peintre. J’avais été découragé par l’insuccès de mon dessin numéro 1 et de mon dessin numéro 2. Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et c’est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours leur donner des explications.
«
— Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I'm a word nerd. Aren't you?


«
We rarely think people have good sense unless they agree with us.
«
— Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Every time I hear the word ‘underlay,’ my brain silently shouts, “¡Arriba! ¡Arriba!”.

Also, when I read ‘rofl’, in my head it sounds like Scooby Doo saying ‘waffle’.


«
Lord protect this rocket house, and all who dwell within this rocket house.
«
— Homer Simpson

Sometimes I have a narrator in my head. He usually sounds like Morgan Freeman. Sometimes, though, it's Patrick Stewart. When I'm particularly tired or something, they meld together.

«
I have no idea to this day what those two Klingon ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't wanna know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it cannot be expressed by a Universal Translator, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared boldlier and farther than any life form in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird transported into our drab little cage and made those shields dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last humanoid on the Enterprise felt free.
