  1. Good to hear from you, and I hope the new job isn't sucking your life away too much.
  2. Says the one eating try-hard sausage made from pureed leftover pig parts crammed into molds and then boiled and tossed onto a bland non-small bun and then buried with acidi toppings anyway so the awful base flavor is covered up.
  3. Welcome to the community! You sound like a really interesting person and I can't wait to talk to you more. Also, @MadCast: Icarus, 9 instruments?!?! That beats my paltry 4 1/2. You are now a candidate for Full Membership. When in Discord, please wear the [C] tag, as in [C] lll Loki lll. Additionally, you now have access to #candidates-chat. Please find a Candidate Coordinator on Discord (myself, @MadCast: Aeryx, or @MadCast: Mike) for a full introduction and initial question and answer session. In one month the Senior Full Members will vote on your membership. Should you pass, you will become a Full Member. You will then be required to wear the MadCast name tag, in your case, MadCast: lll Loki lll. Should you fail, you may reapply and the candidacy period will begin again. A few tips for a successful candidacy: Familiarize yourself with the MadCast Code of Conduct everyone is expected to abide by. You can also check out New to MadCast section for more information! Be regularly active on the forums! Try to check it at least a few times per week and participate in topics that interest you. Share anything you find interesting, because odds are someone else will too! Forum activity is an important component of successful candidacies. Join our Discord Server! Even if you don’t or can’t use voice chat, you’re welcome to listen in. Playing games with members on our server is a good way for them to get to know you on a personal level. Attend events hosted by MadCast that have many people in one place that you can meet and leave a good impression on. Use the same username on the forums and Discord, as well as in-game, when possible. If you aren’t able to do this, make sure that the members you play with know who you are.

If you have questions regarding your candidacy or the process to become a Full Member, please attempt to contact current Full Members via #candidate-chat in Discord first.

Last but not least, the requirement for you to even be eligible to be voted on can be found here.
  4. @Danyo11G has failed to achieve the necessary votes to become a full member of MadCast. Danyo11G may contact an SFM for a brief explanation of the reason(s) their candidacy was unsuccessful via the #candidate-chat or by private message on Discord or the forums. Failed [C]'s may re-apply unless banned. If successful on their second try, they become tagged full members on a probationary basis for 20 days, with probationary status converting to complete full member status on the 21st day barring Staff objection.
  5. Which is something different vs a normal sandwich. Apples to oranges. You can't say that loaded fries and poutine are the same thing, and for that matter a hot dog isn't even open. When I think of an open-faced sandwich, I think of something like this: Hot dogs are not open or flat, they are a glorified pita pocket (which is also not a sandwich, for the record).
  6. This is what I was going to say as well. Hot dogs are not sandwiches because there is only one single piece of bread involved. Soft tacos are also not sandwiches, nor are wraps, or gyros. Hamburgers are sandwiches, and so are bagels and English muffins if you put the pieces back together after toasting them.
  7. Kagono leaned against the damp wood of an abandoned building along the marina while he waited. He pulled the scarf around his neck up to protect his nose and eyes from the dust as it drifted on the light wind. His left hand, hidden within the long sleeve of his hakama, toyed with the base weight of his kusarigama in an unconscious display of impatience. Kagono had been itching to spill blood ever since he was not permitted to help his master in the duel against that rich pig, Daimyo. Since when did the Touten give a damn about the frivolous rules of those so-called honorable samurai? His fury had burned beneath his skin and kept him awake all night, until he finally gave in and went out to expell some energy. He now lay in wait for any passerby foolish enough to carry a weapon. Kagono didn't need the satisfaction of culling the Nanten so much as he needed to quell his desire to watch blood slowly stain the fabric of human skin, flayed in a way that could not be sewn back together. It was only a matter of time, and in his crazed mindset he began cackling within the darkness, already imagining a victim begging for mercy at his feet. CLOSED for @MadCast: The Prince (Yasuke)
  8. I'll be running some fun Pictionary, as well as any other community games if there is interest, such as Secret Hitler or Jackbox Games. Show up to play or just chill and hang out! Sunday, May 26th, and it begins at 1pm EST!
  9. Bump! This starts in 3 hours, and I'll be on a little early to answer any questions.
  10. I apologize, I must have missed it amidst @MadCast: VoShay's duplicitous behaviour.
  11. Well, the last post here indicated a desire to discuss it at Town Hall, but it was never brought up. That being said, if this is something you believe will succeed, go for it. Start up a post right now asking for recommended games in the forums. Make another post when you have enough options, with a poll to decide what wins, and from there you are responsible for making sure it runs the way you want it to. If it is successful we might be able to provide more admin resources to help you maintain that momentum.
  12. Hearing the bang of a door and a brief but determined stomp of feet echo down the stairs, Kagono was less than surprised to see his senpai lumber directly towards the pig's table. At least the girl with wide eyes and strong limbs had taken her leave a few moments ago. Mansu-sama was not known for bellying mercy or displaying any pretense of remorse, and it was better that the girl, for now, was away from the direct path of his ferocious anger. Kagono quickly finished his meal and let the dishes be taken away, only keeping a cup of tea to nurse as he keeps an observant eye on the situation. All knew the unspoken oath of the Red Dragon Inn, and to breech that with any actions of violence would be to welcome a painful lynching. Mansu-sama knew this, as did all patrons who were touched by the ronin lifestyle one way or another, but there were times when he did not subscribe to the common sense accepted by most people. Kagono would not hesitate to step to his captain's aid if need be, but unless directly instructed to, he would do nothing more than observe, no matter the burning itch to satisfy his own blood lust alongside a dear and respected comrade.
  13. Steep is free from Ubisoft until the 21st of May (Thanks Prince)
  14. Located a bit to the south of Edo, this was once a bustling series of landing piers for victorious fishermen to unload their prize catch of the day, ready to be sent straight to the fish market within the quay. Children ran about learning how to gamble from the sailors, and specialty jewelers fashioned fish bones into charms meant to bless the wearer. It has since become one of the darkest places anyone could be unfortunate enough to be in, even amid the permanent twilight suffocating the world. The stench of death permeates the air and vengeful spirits wait to eagerly pick off any lonely drunks stumbling through the night. There's an ephemeral discomfort in the air, a cold feeling that crawls along anyone's spine no matter how long they've worked among the docks. Only the crazy, fearless, and desperate are willing to embark on week-long sailing trips, hunting the spiritual leviathans that live beneath the black sea. Those who are lucky enough to return alive are undoubtedly changed for the worse, and have been known to stray more towards the senseless violence that drives Oni. Many believe that there is more out on the sea than seen by the naked eye, and that anyone foolish enough to set sail is submitting themselves to dark possession by Youkai. [OPEN LOCATION - This thread is intended as an RP setting similar to the Inn, but samurai can challenge each other for a duel here. If you are challenged to a duel, you must accept. You can not challenge anyone whom you have already dueled this week.]
  15. So being wounded just means that your opponent must Strike! roll to deal 3 or 4 wounds in order to kill you, instead of 4 or 5, including future wounds given during the duel? I.e. I enter a battle wounded, and during Improve rolls I get 2 future wounds. Now the enemy only needs to roll enough to inflict 2 more wounds to kill me and win?

  17. Opening the door to the inn, Kagono did a cursory glance out of habit to be aware of potential threats. Sensing none, he walked up to the main bar to order and pulled out his coin purse, heavy with the fruits of dangerous labors while at sea the past week. Perhaps after a hearty meal, he would pay the dice table a visit and enjoy himself while he recounted his victory that day to his comrades. It was always a pleasure to prove himself better than those who think themselves above the "lower class". He looked down at the dried blood still on his hands and grinned to himself a little madly. To any passersby, his expression resembled the Oni who prowled the darkest nights and haunted many dreams. While waiting for his meal and tea, he noticed a slim young girl walking towards that bastard Daimyo's table. Tempering his ever-present bloodlust, Kagono wondered what she was even doing among such disreputable company. Her mussed hair and apparent discomfort reminded him of his sister and made him wish she were allied to him instead. Seeing a capable warrior be seduced by that rich filth was a shame, and for once he was not eager to take a life. If only things were that simple... A pair of bowls filled with hot stew and fresh rice were placed on the bar in front of him. He began eating quietly, thoughts of gambling put aside as he couldn't help watching the girl further. He knew he would show no mercy to anyone who supported the corrupt bureaucracy, but part of him hoped she would cross another's path first and save him the pain. The scars covering his body already attested to a lifetime of suffering, and he had much life yet to live. [Open]
  18. I defeated @MadCast: QuantaMentat in a duel, and he survived with wounded status.
  19. Kagono is a young but heavily scarred first-mate to the powerful fishing captain Mansu, leader of the Touten. He has worked with Mansu hunting Kami on the blackest seas for years to survive. His fierce eyes hold nothing but contempt for the lazy bureaucratic filth that lives within the walls of Edo, fighting over trivial things like wealth and property. In battle, Kagono is a very agile Ronin that wields a kusarigama he obtained in a less-than-honorable manner. A majority of his scars are along his wrists and forearms, a testament to his tenured use of the challenging weapon.
  20. Since the last event went well, I will be hosting another event for Don't Starve this coming weekend. Whether you are super-new to the game, still learning deeper strategies, or a seasoned pro, you're welcome to join us! As a team we got a really nice base established last time, and I will be hosting on the same server this time. Feel free to ask any questions about the game here! The event will begin at Noon Eastern Time on Saturday, May 18th. Please express your interest here to ensure you get a spot, as there are only 6 slots on the server.
  21. Divide by Sheep is free on Steam until tomorrow afternoon!
