A Retrospective Look at the Gunjin Battlefield

[*]You know I've never quite seen an to format pop up quite like the Gunjin Battlefield and I remember it being alot of fun and a great way to flex creative muscles that I don't think alot of people who participated knew that they had. Even though alot of them were kids at the time I think it was overall a positive influence back then when it was active and it could just be plain fun coming up with new ideas for characters and writing out a story with another person or even multiple in a sort of, "gamified," environment without the sane types of restrictions as most RPGs like EnD. Do any of you ever go back at look through it for old time's sake? I'm curious.

I remember playing once, and I think I godmodded, or maybe just lost the fight, and then got embarrassed and quit.

I really like Battlefield but didn't participate as much as I'd have liked to, it was daunting since I can't write very well and many others could. I still dipped into it a bit anyway. Once in a great while I'll take a peek at the archives, it was a cool forum. It makes me miss the Nintendoland Death Battles too.

I had a dream once that Gunjin was revived but I came to the forums way too late to actually participate in the real thing.

I only participated a little because I was nervous of being That Guy who makes themself too OP or stepping on toes or just Doing It Wrong (bc i was young and a nub) so I wrote maybe like 2 posts ever

it was fricken cool though

I never posted there, exactly. I did a couple of battle posts on Tubs's Night Club site once with 314. I probably wasn't very good.

I enjoy reading through what I have saved, every once in a while. Reminiscing can get quite emotional though... ;) :D

I don’t read the Gunjin archives because I’m afraid I’ll see something that 9-year-olf me posted and yeah no thanks.
