  6. [Open Frequency] Hallowed Be Thy Name.

    *the old priest sits still atop a rock formation, his slow and steady breath pushing small clouds out of his mouth and into the cold morning sky. From where he sits, he feels the whole world, the eerie calm as the last hour turns into the first; he hears Boreas and Zephyr, calling his name in the distance, and he sees stars and prisms in the dew drops, breaking up the light of dawn as they gently roll off the glistening grass blades. He reads his notes, slowly, weighing every words he wrote with great care; he still feels guilty at the thought of people plea remaining unanswered for so long, but he steels his resolve and prepares to make amends, to do right by his people. He grabs his radio, turns it on and begins his broadcast* -his voice is smooth and measured, a hint of melancholy at times- "Greetings, it's the Preacher. I would apologize for neglecting this broadcast and in turn, you, who listen. The events that recently unfolded have taken a turn darker than I could ever have imagined ... some good people I knew now thread an obscure path, far away from the light of the Lord. Remember my children, that the watchful gaze of our Lord cannot be blinded, no matter how occult the veil you surround yourself with. *he takes a moment to collect his thoughts* We are sinners, left behind after the Rapture, but it doesn't mean that Heaven is out of reach. On the contrary, this is our last chance to redeem ourselves, to prove to the Lord that we are worth saving as well. Only through this grand crucible will we be reborn as our noblest selves. And, as an humble servant of God, it is my solemn duty to bring the flame of salvation to the accursed and the wicked; work with me my children, work with me to save your souls. Remember that time waits for no one, and if you were to leave this earth tomorrow, you'd do so with a tainted soul, condemning you to an eternity of damnation and suffering; the unclean shall forever be denied entrance to the Everlasting Gardens ..." *he stops for a moment, distracted by the faint howling of wolves in the valley far below* "Now, fret not, I heard your pleas my brothers, I have set plans in motion and shall be with you shortly. I believe that we are in a dire need of each other. Stranger, I've written down the frequency you gave me, I'll find you. Also, worry not, for faith is never truly lost. As for you young Johnny, I would advise leaving the area you currently reside in, take to the woods, I'll contact you soon. I'll end this broadcast with a sermon I've cooked up during the last week, may it grant you levity and peace in this grim, bleak world. Stay safe out there, God is with you, Preacher out." *he takes out his notebook and takes a minute to read his notes again; concerned about the faith of the two young men who reached out to him, he lets out a sigh before resuming his broadcast* -his tone is more serious, gentle, imbued with certainty- Psa. 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psa. 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. Psa. 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Psa. 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psa. 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psa. 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. There is always a valley between two mountains. Before each mountain top experience comes a walk down below. Some can live on the mountain top with the Lord for extended periods of time but some cannot for some reason or another. We reach the mountain top, live there a while but then comes a wind of defeat or a wind of discouragement and the wind blows us right down to the bottom of the mountain again. Some valleys are wide, some are narrow. Some are on rough ground and some on smooth ground. Most suicides occur there and most relationships break up while one or both mates are there. I know I am talking to some today who are there and some people live there most of the time. It may be because of physical reasons, emotional reasons, or spiritual reasons. Whatever the reason, too many of us have an address in the valley. If you are going to be successful in climbing the mountain, then you must recognize what’s in the valley. The only way God can speak to some of us is in the valley. Some Christians get high up the mountain and their ears get stopped up and they can’t hear God speak. Some get so high in the mountains that they get in the fog and can’t see spiritually. There is a different living standard there. The same vegetation doesn’t grow there as it does in the mountain top. Sometimes the only way to get the right spiritual diet is to go to the valley. God may have to take us down there in order to take us up to the mountain top. The valley is the ground floor for success. It is the only access to the mountain. It is where the elevator is. If you enter the elevator at the top, the only direction is down. Maybe you know a friend, a college student, a brother, a sister, or someone else who is in the valley and can’t seem to get out. Maybe you know someone who is considering throwing in the towel. Maybe you know someone who can’t seem to get a handle on their relationships. If it is you, get on the elevator. If it is someone you know, help them get on the elevator because it is about ready to leave the launching pad and the mountain top is the first stop. Jer. 2:23 How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways; Jer. 49:4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me? Joe. 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. This place is always a place of decision. Am I going to stay here or am I going to climb the mountain? We must grapple with our decisions and trust the Lord so we can make the right choice. There is a battle between the flesh and the spirit. Will I make the decision to stay in the world or climb the mountain to spiritual attainment. Will I trust myself or the Lord? Will I depend on my strength or the rod and staff of the Lord? The only reason for staying in the valley is that you don’t make a decision to get out. Most successful people made life changing decisions while in the valley. Psa. 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Psa. 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Luk. 3:5, “Every valley shall be filled, every mountain and hill shall be brought low.”That means that the mountain is accessible to all who trust the Lord and start climbing. Rom. 8:28, “All things work together for good to them who love God.” Are you going to stay in the valley the rest of your life? You don’t need to. Why don’t you get out today? Why don’t you decide to start climbing the mountain today? *the broadcast ends*

    Sprinting in a wall and unplugging your internet cable or cutting the Wi-Fi (while sprinting mind you) usually does the trick for me.

  12. Forum Warning Points: An Alternative

    "A state that suppresses all freedom of speech, and which by imposing the most terrible punishments, treats each and every attempt at criticism, however morally justified, and every suggestion for improvement as plotting to high treason, is a state that breaks an unwritten law." ~Kurt Huber~ Edit : This sounds extreme as heck. I agree with the idea, player-base retention is indeed an important factor but I know the people taking points all the time are also the most prone to overreaction. Take their posting rights away and I'm willing to bet most would rather burn the house down than learn. Also, there is the risk of mistaking criticism for flame, thus muting someone for disagreeing, and that's censorship.
