On the Third Day He Rose Again

A Declaration of Re-Existence

/me checks the calendar.

Wow.

It hasn't been three days, weeks or even months. It has now been more than six months since 'kingzog' pulled the plug on his Senate campaign, relocated to Yellow and then quietly deleted his nation.

It has been even longer since he resigned from his last alliance and prepared to allow his nation to lapse into the great void. Then the NoCB War started, and he was approached with an idea so foolhardy, so audacious that it couldn't possibly succeed.

And then it did....and he was stuck in CN several weeks longer than he had intended.

OK, enough referring to myself in the third person. Who do I think I am, Bob Dole?

Since the Ottawa Empire ceased to exist a few days before what would have been my second anniversary, I suppose this could serve as a replacement of sorts for an anniversary thread.

Or not.

Regardless, I'm back. I've lost touch with many of you, largely because I have been on Coldfront perhaps ten times in six months. In that time I didn't catch up with everyone I wanted to see, but I shall try to do so in the coming days.

I shall also be pleased to answer any questions related to my past, present and/or future on Planet Bob. (I shall even answer [limited] questions relating to OOC/RL matters, since many of you know things about that already and I have never gone out of my way to hide anything.) Understand, though, that if a question requires me to break open the 'Imperial Chamber of Secrets'tm I will probably answer with a quick 'yes', 'no' or 'no comment'. (I will not wade through nearly 60MB of .txt files to satisfy anyone's curiosity. Sorry.)

During my last year or so as kingzog on PB, I amassed a wealth of information. There was surprisingly little that happened that I did not know about well in advance. Why? I really don't know. I wasn't running a spy network. I didn't sell information to the highest bidder. Really....I think people simply enjoyed talking to me.

This is a good thing, as I enjoyed speaking with most of you. I look forward to continuing our conversations.

Finally, I seem to recall that anniversary threads usually contain shout-outs. I'm going to forego that tradition, since those people I like know who they are and, sadly, some of those I like best are now gone from PB.

So....any questions?

Posting this will get me warned.

Also, hello, zog. You and I know each other, but you won't recognize me, sadly.

Oh well...maybe on a different day.

Still, good luck getting Pacifica off your back. Can't imagine they're at all happy with you after that Senate fiasco. Otherwise, a big welcome back, mate. ;)

The New Pacific Order were informed of my intended return on March 5 via 'alternate channels'. Beyond that, I'm not prepared to comment on that particular situation.

Although....

A few days ago I had a conversation (on IRC) with an Imperial Advisor that went something like this:

Him: Hey, aren't you in Vox?

Me: No, I haven't had a nation in CN for more than six months now.

Him: But you were in Vox?

Me: I suppose, but I never really considered myself a 'member'. I basically just lent them my nation to use for the Senate thing before I deleted.

Him: That wasn't you.

Me: Yes, it was.

Him: No, it wasn't.

Me: Yes, it was.

Him: No, it wasn't.

Me: Yes, it was.

Him: No, it wasn't.

Me: Really, it was. Honest. Geez....how soon they forget. :(

No names on the other party. (Hint: Sort of rhymes with 'trashy', though.)

EDIT: Also....thank you for the good wishes, folks.

I always imagined you rerolled into a Continuum alliance and became a spy.

HOW MANY MORE DREAMS OF MINE WILL BE DESTROYED TONIGHT?

With regard to the first part: no. I'd be a terrible spy. For one thing, I don't do the whole 'RP' thing. (To me, 'roleplay' involves the missus in a schoolgirl uniform, but I digress....)

Over the past six months 'kingzog' has not been in regular contact with any CN alliance, but a handsome fellow by the name of Juan Valdez has been somewhat active, although not to the degree he would have liked. (That pesky annoyance known as 'RL' has a tendency to get in fun's way. Or so Juan tells me.)

One of the pitfalls of playing CN under a different name is that there is what one can only call a loss of cyber-identity. For good or for ill, the name 'kingzog' was at least known to people. 'Juan Valdez' was not, and it was frustrating at times, especially when someone would challenge my knowledge about a particular situation.

Anyway, I did not tell anyone who I was, lest I get my alliances into trouble. In fact, I flat-out lied to many people on several occasions about who I was, which didn't sit well with me at all. But it gave them plausible deniability, which was the point.

Welcome back Zog. You've missed me.

You are correct, sir.
