Hi.

Postby Puffles » Wed May 23, 2007 6:22 pm

Hello folks.

Let me introduce myself and tell you my story.

I'm new here, however I'm also a long-time lurker and ancient member of the Campaign Creations staff.  I was once a map/campaign/mod designer myself for games such as StarCraft, Age Of Empires II, WarCraft II and III.  However I've been inactive and disappeared for a looong, long time.  It's been years I suppose.  I doubt any of you remember me, though some of my former aliases were 'Chris,' 'The Downward Spiral.'  I had a few StarCraft projects hosted here somewhere around the time Desler just finished the Fenix, though sadly I never finished anything.  You can find a few of my old Age of Empires projects at http://www.ageofkings.com if you search their mod section.  There was another ancient time when Campaign Creations' three main games of focus were SC, AoE2, and Dark Reign II.  I remember I tried to pick up the DR2 department when CC member DI/Magnus left, but I didn't really have the programming skills at the time to keep up with the DR2 modding community.  I guess I lost interest sometime after.

One of my best works was a role-playing story called 'the Nexus.'  It was an Age of Empirse campaign.  It was a story about time travel and focused on a two kings who were unknowingly trapped never-ending, looping timeline.  There was a god who forged this timeloop, and it continued until the characters succeeded in bringing salvation to the world and creating a sort of Utopia.  It was alright.  When I look back on it these days though, the script completely urks me.  It was very amateurish.  I think I was 16 when I wrote all the dialogues.

And since I'm introducing myself here, I should probably come clean and be honest about everything.  I was once kicked from the Campaign Creations.  Heh, by Desler himself.  And for good reasons.  I did a childish, foolish stunt provoked by a friend and basically spammed the CC boards with detestable nonsense.  At my defense, I was 15 and brainless at the time.  I'm 21 years old now.  I've sincerely apologized since then, and I really don't know what I was thinking.  In fact, I probably wasn't thinking much of anything at all.

I'm an adult now, and my behavior as well as my storywriting competence have both matured greatly since then.  I do hope you accept me into your community.  With StarCraft II now on the horizon, I imagine that this place could become very productive and very active in the near future.  And I want to experience it all.  I have tons of ideas brewing in my head for really cool sci-fi stories that could fit the framework of the StarCraft universe.

To prepare for StarCraft, I've been re-playing all the Blizzard campaigns and reacquainting myself with the story.  And not to sound like a fanboy, but I love your work Desler.  The stories, the characters, and especially the music choices.  I plan on replaying all of that stuff.  I was always bummed out that your WarCraft III project got cancelled.  What was it called again?  I remember you and Joel Steudler had a great-looking website for it.

I'm also interested in experiencing whatever great StarCraft campaigns I missed while I was gone.  Does anyone have any good recommendations?  I plan on giving all that Antioch stuff a whirl again.

Anyway, I hope to get to know many of you better in time.  If any of you play WoW, I'm Puffles on the Emerald Dream server. :) 

See you around,
Puffles

I do recall you, especially thanks to thinking acronyms.. "TDS," I believe I arrived shortly before your departure. In all reality, it's been a long ride for all of us and we've all made our mistakes. Personally, I wont do anything to keep you from posting here unless it's deserved, how others may view you is questionable, but I doubt it'll be with bad terms. I had my enemies before, and those are times long and gone and all is better. Speaking of which- Where DID Palin go? Sorry, personal dislike. Anyway, I'll send you a link and explain why I am in the message. It'll give you a place to start playing all the projects you missed. Welcome back.

I remember TDS you later made a comeback and were at The Worldcrafters (Desler & Joel's nice looking website) and maybe some other site as well?

As for SC campaigns, check out Flame Knives (complete campaign, w00t) and the half-complete (cancelled for SC2) Aeon of the Hawk :)

You kidding? I remember The Downward Spiral, you were a cool guy. I joined rather late, and I still remember you!

As for SC campaigns, immediately what comes to mind is the Flame Knives by meta. You can find it somewhere at the star alliance. (samods.org)

I have seen the Desler.  I have tasted of his milk and honey.

We all make mistakes. I know this well. There's a lot of things I regret having done. I can't blame all of them on autism, either. All we can hope to do is move on, to a better future.
