    Magnificient Chris Avellone, who nowadays doesn't do anything but giving interviews and making tweets, has accidentally been banned from the Codex. 'twas an accident, promise. We're currently working hard to find a way to unban the Obsidian IP's. Anyway, I'm digressing. The actual reason for this newspost is the video interview he gave to New Media Rights. Go there and have a look at it. They even split it up in convenient 1-3min chunks, to not overtax your attention. How very considerate.

    Dialogue?

    Conversation?

    Where is this stuff of dreams happening?
    It must be some secret forum or something im not allowed into. Gee those guys must be having fun having all that dialogue and conversations with the devs.

    Through the wonders of CloudFlare, we apparently learned that Obsidian was a malicious botnet that have been DDoSing the Codex. Our response was swift and relentless!

    Da fuck, they are just randomly ordered, I was watching MCA talk about why they chose Obsidiam for F:NV, then outtakes started to play (WHY are they even there?), then it went to Black Isle Studios! o_O

    Well, it was an easier approach than banning everyone else in the Codex. :lol:

    Bros, don't think of it as MCA being banned. Think of it as MCA dying for the sins of Codexkind.

    So why is this even a problem for him, it's not like he's suddenly going to start posting here and he can still read all the gaming forums unless... I knew it! He's been reading up on gd drama threads as inspiration for the romances in PE. You unban him this instant, Codex. The man is on a sacred mission.

    Quest added to Journal: Retrieve lost lore about Dong Sha The Mighty, to find a weak spot in his defense.
    Quest failed: [charname] trusted NPC XY and gave some secrets of the quest, meanwhile Dong Sha the allmighty escaped with the damsel in distress.

    Quest added to Journal: Find 5 bags of flour, rescue Farmer Rolas' cow to get milk, collect 5 red, 5 blue and 5 green colouring potions, kill the queen harpy to get eggs. Bring ingredients to Rainbow factory, wait a few days.
    Quest solved: New item added to inventory, +0 xp.
    Item lost. -50 loyality with party member XY, random chance party member XY is abandoning the party.

    Quest added to journal: Kill suspicious waitresses, possible succubi, in the newly opened tavern in Nada'Kwa, deluting the minds of the local honest working men. Alternative solution, find new priests for the village.

    By the book, (KIng James'), the Codex will have two more opportunitiies of denial.

    Anticipate a rambling discusion on Free Will and Predestination.
    Wake me when that's over, will be sure to scan all Brofisted performances.


    Video offerings. Thirteen, holy lucky 13!, 1 to 3 minute chunks. Packaged like porn? How would you or I know?

    This night would rather finish down loading audio chapters of The Gilded Age from Internet Archive. :obviously:

    Tangent: Pleasant surprise how good -- professional -- some of the readers are. Wonder if it's audio pro's doing demo performances or on a busman's holiday.


    In this time zone, "tomorrow is another day", {music swells as fade to black}

    More than likely just prefers having the forum keep his stopping place in threads for him.

    Nigga please. Everyone knows Obsidian devs have accounts here, they just don't use their own names anymore (wonder why?)

    Sawyer has posted things from GD on twitter before etc.

    Ulminati explained it above. It seems all Obsidian devs are browsing the 'Dex 24/7. This resulted in so much traffic that CloudFare detected the Obsidian IP as a spambot network or something and banned it. See? We then whitelisted their IP or something. It took the entire power of Taluntain, DarkUnderlord, myself and an entire team of science consultants to set things straight again.
