Welcome aboard, Lyre. I've seen you on the CMX forum a fair bit. You're a shapeshifter, right? You should fit right in here.

Also, I offer you a link to the Mayhem wiki - it's a good field guide to the sort of crazies you'll run into around here.

Correct and much obliged.

Makes for quite the read. ^_^

I've found that you don't need to understand something to enjoy it.

It certainly helps, but overall you're not missing a lot if you don't.

Fantastic.

Just by thinking about that set my mind off.

I now have this running through my head.

Hello everyone. My name is Dreaju. I joined this site because a friend told me stories of forum wars, slicing people with singularly molecular-edged fruit, and a bar run by a mage with Superman's younger brother as the bouncer. I wish to join the chaotic fun and proudly call myself a rabbit. *puts on bunny ears*

That's 'Bunny', and unfortunately, the Bunnies moved. We're Mayhemites, now. Also unfortunately, things have been rather slow around here lately. But don't let that dissuade you! There's plenty to get involved with, and perhaps you can bring back some of the fun.

Just a warning, don't leave the, erm, relative safety of this thread without your Newbie Pack. Many people will give you extra gifts to add to it.

1 standard TF gun
1 six-pack of unlabeled soda
1 Grandma's Giant Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 EGS Mild-Mannered Girl-Elliot plushy
1 Infinite Bag of Dice
1 towel
1 dead fish

Now that you've got that, you better start running.

3...2...1....

Like, now.

If you want to jump right in, may I suggest Last Post Wins, or you could come visit the recently opened O'Lionheart's Trans-dimensional Pub. There are also a few games to be found here. You can even start your own, if you feel so inclined.

Oh hey! I assume you popped in from the goblins forum. Welcome! I hope you have fun around here. Things are pretty easy going these days so don't feel nervous about joining something or taking a chance with something silly; we've got a long history of people doing weird things for no other reason than self-amusement.
