Very Nice Nighthaunt! :thumbsup: Perchance a sticky for this. And tho the Sots2 wiki is right there on the index page with its bare face hanging out, maybe add that to this list in case people zoom right to the Sots2 thread and miss it. :lol:

Almost forgot, Aloha to all the new guys!

Yes! Thanks for all of the handy links, Nighthaunt!

Welcome, all of you new folks. I am also a knew folk (though slightly less new at this point) and have found the boards here to be A Right Good Time, rather than the squealing throng my fishy overlords claimed it would be.

Sorted - link now in the first post to the Wikipedia for SOTS ][ ;), also added the link to the free chapters of The Deacon's Tale on the Wiki :thumbsup:

No idea how to request this stickied, or even if its suitable to be stickied???

**** edit ****

PM'd Arinn as she's moderator for this bit of the forum asking if its a) a good idea and b) possible to sticky this thread.

nh...and everyone else for that matter...lets try and go easy on the pm's ok? Assume everything said on the board is seen and read by someone here. We are a bit busy at the moment to be yanked around for anyone wanting special attention to their posts.

Thanks Nighthaunt. As far as sacrificial goats go, I'll try to keep a low profile and hope that the big guy doesn't choose his meals randomly.
