BostonApril 15, 2013, 06:32:00 PM by Blackthorne
The streets of Boston bleed liberty. They have for over three centuries. From it's hearty cobblestones and tenacious buildings, the heart of liberty and the pursuit of happiness was forged. Boston has seen rebellion - the symbolic dumping of tea into the harbor in protest. It has seen the blood of its citizens run along its fine streets in a massacre that proceeded freedom. It has endured as a cherished city that saw the birth of a nation, the rise of it's fine citizens and the growth of its country.
Boston has endured. It has grown - it has expanded, it me the industrial revolution with great fervor and the fires of industry from this great city commingled with the forges of many other great cities to expand our country's wealth and bring prosperity to our people.
Boston has maintained. The cultural heritage of our patriot fathers - men who founded the ideals, documents and tenets that our country was founded on lives on, active, in this city of living history.
Boston endures. It gives many people the joy and hope of what it meant to be a successful immigrant in the early 20th century - and you can see the joy in celebration every St. Patrick's Day.
Boston flourishes. Art, music, literature - many great works of human creation have poured out of this great city, bringing joy, adventure, mystery, beauty and mischief to an adoring public.
Boston adapts. The city weathered the uncertain economic times of the late 20th century and early 21st century, constantly forging ahead in spite of tremendous odds.
Again, the streets of our Beloved Boston run red with the blood of innocents - innocents who were ruthlessly attacked by men of cowardly means. By people who wish to instill fear on the good people of the world.
We must not despair. We must not forsake humanity in this time, as it is not humanity who is forsaken at this time - but a small few who are so afraid of life that they seek to destroy it, to keep themselves insular. Away from change.
But we will endure. We will flourish. We, the good of humanity will not let this stand. We will not be scared into our homes, cursing out fellow brothers, and live in fear of each other. We will not let these few men destroy the bonds of fellowship that join every decent man, woman and child of this great nation, and of this amazing planet. We will flourish. We will rise. We will not be deterred.
We, like Boston, will stand. United. With liberty and justice for all.

Happy New YearDecember 31, 2012, 06:50:54 AM by Klytos
Hello fellow Infamous Folk,
We're about 20 minutes from the start of 2013 here in sunny Queensland, Australia and I thought, as my wife is watching Rocky Horror on TV that I'd take the opportunity to wish everyone a prosperous, safe and happy new year.
2012 has been exciting for IQ. We've kickstarted, built a great demo and gathered a lot of support for our game. We've done a lot of work in the last few weeks to finish out the new year, mostly in the combat and magic areas. I guarantee, you'll love it!
Have a great one and see you next year!
