You sent me exactly three PMs and then just dropped off the face of the earth (for comparison, I'd gotten ten from Maria in the same timeframe). Looking back those three PMs were at least somewhat fine, though people didn't really seem to be making any legit connections with you.
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.

Cool, duly noted!

I really had no clue what I was doing, so good to know where my first major drawback was!

Really??

I thought I was doing a great job on that front!

Live and learn I guess! Ari will be more talkative than ever the next time he plays!!!

I was doing far better in the Terra until I stopped being able to. I honestly thought I had masterminded everything so I could get back into the game, setting up allies and lying to get my way. Worked out for the most part.
Perhaps I talked game instead of personal too much?


I am so happy you played in a game aristo!!! I wish we had a chance to chat in/please play another.
Curiouser and curiouser!

It made me sad to see I voted you out first, Ari! And what d3f3nder said. I also found our interactions really stilted when we did talk, particularly since you mostly sent one-liners roleplaying about people being strong. It made you seem untrustworthy and difficult to work with, but also a very easy target, and everyone was looking for a convenient consensus boot. My limited experience is that it's much safer to open the game coming across as more friendly and natural. I know you're a very likeable and sunny person, so taking advantage of your people skills here would likely get you much deeper into the game.

Lmao! This is the exact opposite of what I was going for! XD

Good to know though! And fun playing with you, Mina! :)

I'll be more Ari and less Khan next time!

Aristo! I actually thought you were pretty cool even if I didn't mention it anywhere. Too bad you fell in the same trap as StrangerCoug D:
Do I REALLY suck? That's up to you to decide.

Thanks man! =D

I agree, it kinda sucks that I did. Hopefully I can be far better next time :)

I had fun with you as well! It's been a while since we've played anything together!
