    Hi Gary -- welcome! I like your intro post, thanks for sharing That lil darlin' must be the light in your life! From Texas, huh? I spent 50 yrs in New Orleans and moved to Minnesota 2 yrs ago ... haven't missed the heat (or humidity) even a little. Do miss the food, though. And the people. Music too come to think of it, lol. I'm not an FPS gamer (vertigo), but I love me some MMOs (although not WoW). What other MMOs might you have played? I hope you find SoH to be a home-haven for your gaming needs. We like it and have tended it well for 14 yrs now. Great group of people from all walks of life -- some new, some old (haha, me!) and at least one gamer 10 yrs my senior ^^ I'm going to alter your forum rank so you can poke around and see who we are. Make sure to check out our Code of Conduct and 5 Dirty Words (in Public Access). Grieve will be along any moment and get you set up on Discord and/or Mumble. Happy gaming!

    Hi there Jon, nice to meet you. Welcome! Nomads are SUPER casual so no worries about the 2 on/ 2 off thing. I'll go ahead and alter your forum rank so you can poke around boards a bit and get to know us better. Simone, our lovely Nomadic leader, will set you up w/ mumble (which we prefer for voice-over) and discord (which we prefer to use for more immediate chat needs). I'll also jump online and toss you a kinship invite from one of my non-Fera named toons lol. Quick question: favorite snack food? Have you any pets and would you be willing to share pics? Cya in game!!

    Hi there

    Wow, Xena is BIG! lol love it My mother-in-law recently adopted her 2nd Irish Wolfhound. His name is Kodiak, or Kodi for short (and has the face of a lil bear, so cute!) Shadow, her first, passed a couple of months ago. He was sweet and calm. The puppy, Kodi, is adorably sweet... and a lot less calm lol <3 First pic is Shadow, age 5, 150 lbs -- the 2nd is the puppy, Kodi ^^

    Hi there

    Hi Cluboris -- welcome I've altered your forum rank so you can poke around some. Do that and try to get a feel for who we are ^^ While, as a large gaming community, we are very diverse when it comes to people, places, and "all the things," we are generally of a single mind when it comes to attitude. We have a Code of Conduct and abide by the precepts found in 5 Dirty Words. As an adult, I doubt you'll find either problematic. If you do, please advise. The Nomads group is super casual so no worries. We have no hard and fast rules regarding anything, esp. playtime. RL always comes first in SoH, regardless of what game is being played. On to the fun stuffzzzzz...... pupper you say? Name plz! And posted pics are greatly appreciated! What area of the country are you currently in? Are the leaves changing? Will you get snow eventually? (I live in Minnesota, so yeah -- snow will eventually fall, and continue to do so for some months :|) What's your favorite pizza topping? Football or baseball? I look forward to grouping w/ you in lotro! Cya soon

    Hi Rojdan, welcome! I've altered your forum rank so you're able to poke around a bit more. Do that and make sure to vet us in the same way you might with any group of online strangers (^^) With 14 yrs as a gaming community, we're finding peeps continue to like the way we do things. Many of our members have been with us from the start, and pretty much everyone struggles w/ the same time-crunch you describe. So, take your shoes off and relax! You won't get any stern looks from us, lol. Grats on the Piled higher and Deeper (well, almost ^^). That's a ton of work and deserves a hefty dose of approbation. So does raising children while getting an education, lol. We use these forums, and likely always will, as a means of scheduling, storing game data resources, and as a means of recording the history of both the guild and its members. We are a very open minded bunch of noodle-heads and I'm delighted to learn you've read through our bits and agree with our basic ideology. Again, welcome! We use Discord as a means of instant communication (many do so from work, lol), and as VoIP for those who prefer it. Mumble, however, is the VoIP preference for the Nomads. It's fiddly, to be sure, but once you've done the Audio Wizard and one of us has registered you, it's basically hands-off / stress free. I look forward to gaming with you!

    Well hello Fern! Glad to meet you Our "Nomad" group does sound like a good fit for you (and many of us, hehe). Tell me, if you don't mind divulging personal bits on the internet, how do you make your gold in RL? Have you any kids or pets? (mega pet lovers here in SoH lol) What other hobbies, besides gaming ofc, do you enjoy? I'm Fera! I'm currently not using any of my education and working a seasonal job at a gallery/boutique and having a ball, lol. My hubs n I have 3 cats: Chaos, Loki and Luna(tic). All bad. xD All loved <3 SoH has been an active gaming community for going on 14 yrs now. We're a large and very varied group of people with a deep respect for community, and for the people in it. Whatever it is you bring to table, with the exception of ass-hattery, we'll embrace it, and you, so no worries. I'm sure a couple others, including Simone, will be along to pester you. Join in on the fun! Ask us what you will and vet us, too ^^ Cya 'round!

    This is Me!

    Hi Foss. Welcome! Delighted you found your way here. I don't play Dest.2 but I know a few of the folks who do and you're in good company there and with the larger community. We've been a gaming community nigh 14 yrs now and are proud to call ourselves "home" to a wide variety of gamers. If you feel comfy with our CoC, you can count yourself among them! I'm sorry to hear about your accident; that totes sucks. What have you a mind to study if/when that presents itself as an option again? And what's your favorite pizza topping? Are you a thin-crust or deep dish kind of guy? What about the FPS fusion gaming genre excites you the most? Feel free to post pics of Toby in your thread! We love us some pets in SoH! <3

    Leadership Council Members

    Grieve has been promoted to the LC -- the full list of Council members now includes: Ashin, Fera, Midri, Darlantan, Huntyre, Tyrlis, Rohj and Grieve
  9. The SoH LC is delighted to announce that Grieve has been inducted into the Leadership Council and is the first official inductee since re-imagining our structure earlier this year. The SoH LC now includes: Ashin, Fera, Midri, Huntyre, Darlantan, Tyrlis, Rohj and Grieve. Grieve came to us as a Recruit in 2013 when I recruited him into the Guild Wars 2 Chapter, and he's continued to be a loyal, active presence in SoH ever since. In addition to his tireless efforts in leading Destiny 2 over the past 8 months, Grieve has exhibited notable loyalty and commitment regarding the larger SoH gaming community. He's done this by organizing Game Nights and by doing something no one else has (at least not with such gusto or consistency) -- and that is organizing community meet-ups. It's also worth mentioning that SoH had not really considered FPS-fusion, or any type of non-PC games as serious contenders for our "official" roster prior to our re-imagining of guild structure, but the Cohort experiment regarding Destiny 2, which has now been converted to a full Chapter, has permanently changed that. On our horizon there are numerous titles, many on console, that now comfortably fit within the purview of "official" status for our gaming community. Congratulations Grieve! You've earned it ^^
  10. It is with great joy that I am able to announce the conversion of the Destiny 2 Cohort to a full Chapter. Given that SoH has previously only considered MMOs for "official" chapter status, Grieve's commitment, care and hard work in making a success out of this Cohort is laudable. The Leadership Council unanimously agreed that their 8-month tenure, stability and visible growth, makes it retroactively eligible for this status update. In making this decision, we also considered the active roster, the weekly raids for 2 full groups, and the imminent content release which will continue to allow for this level of activity into the new year. Congratulations Destiny 2! And congratulations to Grieve, Chapter Lead, on a job well-done ^^

    Hello and Intro

    O.M.G. -- you 2 are practical an act all by yourselves! lol Gobsmacked, I damn near peed myself laughing. Hi Loda ^^ I'm glad you finally relented xD Our new Nomad group sounds like it'd be a good fit for you, too. I'm gonna later your forum rank so you can putz around a bit more -- just remember to follow boards that interest you and check back periodically. I'll also get you a Disco invite :P I look forward to some non-first-person gaming with you soon! lol

    Hey there bud! Soooooooo glad you finally made it to our warm and welcoming shores! lol As I told you, we've re-imagined community structure and such, but are ever faithful to our attitudes: real life first and good gamesmanship. You, my friend, have always fit imho and I'm delighted to embrace you for realz! Well, for gaming realz anyway xD We have a new Cohort (guild group) hotting up -- Nomads. Here's a post you can read more fully, but essentially we'll be game-jumping every 3 months (give or take, depending on title) rather than committing to a 9-month minimum. Go on and make a suggestion if one comes to mind! Simone will be our Cohort lead; he's awesome. You two will get along quite well I imagine ^^ Chances are some of our other members will happen along and pose questions in a get-to-know-you fashion. Some will be insane, others less so, lol. Answer to the degree of your personal comfort ^^ I know you well enough not to feel the need, hehe. Once you've responded to this thread (haha -- test to you see if you're paying attention!) I'll alter your forum rank so you can have greater access. When you're ready, I'll shoot you a Discord invite as well (we use that quite a bit now). IIRC, you still have our mumble address, right? If not, LMK and I"ll hook you up. Hug yo face!

    Hi Xotic -- welcome! Speaking as a retired English teacher, your grammar def. does not suck. Other than adding a couple commas here n there for clarity, your prose style is quite easy to read -- a pleasure even! That said, no one here will judge you on such things, myself included. We genuinely enjoy finding kindred spirits to people our storied halls (and after almost 14 yrs as a gaming community, we've got oodles of stories xD) Love the small menagerie you've got going, lol, turtle named Mikey. Cute. And you have to post a pic of that pit-lab mix! Post here in your thread or on Discord (lobby or social) once you've got that set up. I once rescued a beleaguered Afghan hound named Plato. He had demodectic mange and was missing most of the hair on his hind torso and tail. The creature looked a wreck and absolutely nothing like an Afghan lol. He was also mostly blind. And entirely stupid. Walked straight into a pool. Twice. I had to jump in, fully clothed, and fish him out (he'd sunk right to the bottom). Never a dull moment with Plato! Sweetest, happiest dog you'd ever meet, but damn was he dumb, lol. I'm mostly a pc MMO-er as well and am currently playing Elder Scrolls Online with a very casual SoH group. Sadly, fatigue is setting in a touch so I thought I'd take a bit of a breather and futz around w/ some RPGs or something for a bit. If you play ESO at all, give @Simone a shout for an invite. We'd love to have you whenever you're on (lol, why did cannibalism just pop into my head?) I've never played Ark but I know there's a few around here who do. Mention your server on Disco (gaming) and see if anyone bites, hehe. It's a game that has piqued my interest, but I've not actually pursued it. Yet ^^ After your first response to your thread here, I will alter your forum rank so that you can poke around more freely. Although we use Discord quite a bit, we still love our forums (esp. members of the old vanguard like myself lol) -- make yourself at home! Vet us as we vet you and hopefully you will come to think of us as your first stop when venturing into a new (or old) game and you look for game data or for peeps with whom to play. Each of us plays multiple titles from a variety of genres (many of which go unmentioned! lol) Anyway, sorry for the verbosity ^^ I look forward to chatting (or playing) w/ you at some point \o/
