I do want to thank you. By being absent for a while from the video review scene, you have saved me a significant amount of money !

Hope all is well and we see you back soon..

Depends on what you mean by absent. By my count, he's put up seven videos this month and seventeen this year.

Maybe not as active, but he ain't hibernating...

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

"Wherefore" actually is akin to "why" and has nothing to do with "where".

Also, it should be "thou", not "though", and should be followed by a comma before citing the name.

Whether or not a comma is needed depends on what question was being asked. If Marco was being asked the existential question, "Why are you?", then a comma would be needed. If, on the other hand, the question was "Why are you Marco?" (as opposed to, say, Enrico), then there should be no comma.

Juliet was not addressing Romeo, she was asking, "Why did he have to be Romeo, the mortal enemy of my family, instead of some other guy, so that we could fall in love and live happily ever after?"

This is good. We don't do nearly enough Shakespeare analysis in the wargame sub-forum.

Alas, poor Marco, I knew him well.
Is this a dice tower before me, handle toward my hand ? Come let me roll thee.

"Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
