Greetings...

*Gives a deep bow, spreading his wings regally*

I am known as Sigwion;
Inventor, philosopher and adventurer...
At your service.

---

Just get that IC intro out of the way!
^..^;

Don't worry; I'm not a RP nut...
err... well; I don't INSIST on being IC constantly, at least?

If it wasn't obvious,
I have a tenancy to ramble when left to my own devices...
so please give me a heads up if it gets annoying.

In any case;
I have been a longtime fan of Altermeta...
I think I found it when I was searching for "Dragon Comics"
back in 2003 or so?

Always meant to join the forums,
but never seemed to feel confident enough to do so.

Not a lack of enthusiasm, I assure you!

But many of the forums I get active in,
based on the most amazing of ideas and themes...
end up falling apart or degrading into petty squabbles.

What changed?

I started getting more active in Noben's art streams...

Now I just want to learn more about the community,
and help any way I can!

No promises on how active I will be though...

Fair enough?

^..^;;;?

Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

Welcome aboard, we're exceedingly glad to have you. The good news is we squabble hardly ever that I've seen and we don't plan on piddling out anytime soon. I hope your stay is long and filled with shenanigans

Welcome to this corner of the internet!

I must stay this was one hell of a detailed introduction.

Be warned: Any food left unattended will be devoured by shadowy forum lurkers.

:D well so far it's a pretty congenial place even if the pace of life is somewhat relaxed.

Thanks to Russ for the sig!

@confusedcious

I wasn't lurking here,
I really tried to avoid coming here from temptation of getting drawn in before I was ready!

Although... I WILL take the balloon!

*Snag*

<Hit!>

@Dreaker

Glad to have shown up!

Yeah, I do tend to get rather verbose...
but about a decade of MUCKing will do that to ya!

Oh? leftover plush-snacks?

*Debo~!*

<Hit X2!>

@Lisbon Virgo

Fun? Who said you could have fun?

This is an intellectual ground for debate and development!

I'll have to take that from you...

*Seize!*

<Hit X3!>

---

@Liram

Hardly squabble? That's good... but are there debates at least?
I LOVE a good debate!

Oh! Free shenanigans!

*Collect!*

<Hit X4!!!>

@Richie

Thanks for the welcome!

Oh? Catalog?
*Sniffs*

Hmm... have to take this to the lab...
I lost my ability to use magic LONG ago anyways.

Now-a-days, evocations just kinda get warped near me...

Anyways; MINE!

*Hoards*

<C-C-C-COMBOOOOO!!!>

----

Well... this is one of the nicest welcomes I have received on a forum to date!

Thank you all!

Now, if you excuse me...

I have a hoard to add to!

*Shuffles the huge pile of "loot" toward a cave...*


P.S.
To be clear, my character isn't a Kuvvie,
and I tend to blur IC and OOC as the persona is just a dramatic version of my own.
Gold anthro dragon... well, half-dragon? Kinda...
Like most of my creations; needlessly complex!

Voidbane, if you're going to be THAT way about it! you can just forget this bag of holding filled with various sized portable holes I usually give out as a welcome package.

Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

I'm still new and sparse on forum presence myself, but welcome.

I appreciate the verbose, being of them myself, so don't worry about long posts or big words. I don't believe I'd be the only one who would make such assurances either, so indeed, be welcome.

An inventor, philosopher, adventurer eh? Heh, you know, I think all inventors are the other two as well. Don't know that I've ever met any that weren't. What's your usual area of work? Mine is applied physics type things. Mechanical, thermo and fluid dynamics mostly. I understand many inventors don't like talking about their work, or some of their work, so if that's the case no worries. I understand.

When it comes to philosophy, there are many different ways that people might express that interest and require a specific type of dialogue to converse appreciably. Some people focus their interest around philosophers in particular, while others might be centered on particular topics, or just enjoy casual reading and podcast listening to improve their lives, like me :3. So, I'd like to ask:

When it comes to philosophy, what's your pleasure, Foe-of-Nothing?

"What is THIS?"

"I mean, I can get the irony of Rutherford blowing up at people,
but he's my favorite character!"

*The ping-pong falls... onto Sigwion's head!
Bonk!*

"Hey! What the...?"

*Reads the note and looks up...*

"Oh myyyy~<3!"

*Leaps into the air and flies up to the copter, flapping his wings to try and hover next to it...*

"I ADORE these things! Haven't seen one in ages!"

*Reaches into his vest pocket and pulls out a excessively long multi-colored scarf...*

"Here! Just remembered how chilly it gets up here!"

@Beau

"The same thing" is kinda the joke...
Philosophy is a way of thinking of things,
adventurer tries to find new things,
and a inventor uses the things he finds.

Glad someone got it for once,
AND one of the main meanings of this name!

As for my philosophy;
I believe I know nothing,
and have faith that anything is possible...
INCLUDING the possibility that NOT everything is possible.

We can only learn from what we observe,
and our senses are not accurate.

Therefore; we can only guess and, most importantly...

ASK QUESTIONS~!!!
