Played a few characters Nobody probably remembers through the years.
Joric Kolt - My first character Guard for House… Something or other, We wore purple was killed by "skinner" at level 5 I believe, Ran with Sinsane Duskflower.
Balderrone Rose - A lovitarian who was in cahoots with Bhallir (The bad bhaliir) Capture Jessica(Half-orc paladin who had a Human husband) and tortured her, cutting off her fingers and tossing her/them down the pit.
-- Few bs characters in between -- I wasn't ( I'm not) the strongest of Roleplayers and I lack the ability to know exactly what to do on the server Finally had an app approved but turned it down to play my current character!
Jaric Steel - Tempun turned Banite, was Raslyn Dracarts bodyguard for a short time, an aspirer for Zhentarim recruitment (was never approved)
Tagnar Silverhammer - Dwarven Cleric of Dugmaren Brightmantle- Again nothing important
Currently Kaim Lionshield!
Request for next spoiler; what exactly has happened to the lands sorrounding Arabel? The last teaser mentioned wastes which implies something calmatic has happened which has changed the area quite a bit from what we recongize it to be.

apparently this version is about 30min shorter than the full documentary as well.
I remember some interesting things that were in the original, about (real life) druids, ireland, fighting england for freedom etc (they spoke of fighting as long as the trees still stand or something, then england deforested the place so they couldn't hide and fight from the forests and trees...)
anyways, sorry for the anti-climax, dead links etc.
I think the full version may be available for streaming or digital purchase on vimeo or on their calloftheforest.com site or something.
I was just looking at old internet directories...
'maps of the web' as it were
there are some still kicking around, but these really good directories to really good, useful (free?!) sites seem to be slowly going extinct, in lieu of search media that pay for better page ranks.
If 'the internet' is the 'digital box of the universe', 'breaking' net neutrality gives those who retain power over control the power to decide what is in the box, and what is not, so control of the 5th estate (ie media, to help inform the public about society so it can regulate itself) and economically speaking, can simply gain monopoly by strangling ability to connect to any alternatives than those the power holders subscribed (let alone any information critical of, evidence of crimes, etc, of entrenched power)... an economic monopoly then lets you fix prices, and control other things like wages, rights, unions or lack thereof, political power and elections,
SOOO for folks who want to see documentaries that I think are still available for free online ... i think 'the internet's own boy' (the aaron swartz story) may still be up... for those interested in this kind of stuff.
in other news, looks like the politics of arabel is shifting a lot! more player faction control in arabel!
I haven't been in the forums much lately, but I still see some announcements, rumours etc when they come up.
