Welcome, Lou! Archaeology student, huh? That could certainly help in writing fantasy! :D

Um, I like people to introduce themselves in the Discussion. But yeah you can jump into a story if you'd like. Experiments is another Adventure you could easily join into, and it isn't as frquently updated as Merolder.

I'm not new, I've been here before but it was ages ago. I've managed to forget a lot of the details about the story in the meantime. I've jumped into the story with the least posts as I thought it would cause least inconveiniance. I'm adding in one new character, and my old character is just appearing for old time's sake.

Archeology? I dig archeology! It's got all them vowels, man! I mean, far out! *grins*

Note: by the way, I spell it as you do, but the spell checker doesn't like that second 'a'... bloody spell check!

As have I. I spell it that way every time I write or type it. That was how it was originally spelled, from everything I've read. I think that it's only recently that they changed the "official" spelling of the word to the less Greco-Roman appearing "Archeology". This new spelling, though, looks just strange to me...

Archaeaeololology

It's bound to confuse me! My spelling is dubious at the best of times. Are you into arch, Aldan?

Maybe they were just tired of it's archaic appearance?

I'm not so much into archaeology as I am into History. I got interested in history as a "real" story back in elementary school, and have continued on, reading things when I make the time. I know that archaeologists are some of the people that "make" history, in that they find items and then using their brains try to come up with reasons for the items. Correct? Incorrect? Doesn't matter, if they make the person a name. That doesn't mean that they're not trying to come up with a correct answer, but it's just that so often they have been wrong. Of course, they are usually right about things, so to an extent it balances out...

Yes- new evidence is often proving old archaeological theories incorrect. A lot of archaeology is uncertain.

I would agree But then on a few games I am pretty sure you can get the best of me.

Actually you are smart just not open to the obvious.
