    It wasn't when this happened, it was like 30 years ago or something ridiculous heh
    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    Remember when this came out and how funny it was to think of people making huge salaries just for playing videogames? Now we have kids making millions of dollars of month to stream their gaming.

    Well, I've been talking about the "video game" industry the entire time.

    Arcade alone was 8 billion, or 18.5 billion in 2011 dollars. The '80s was its peak though.

    On the surface that sounds fun, but those hardcore paintball/airsoft guys are the worst.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.
