Steampunk Narwhal... what a wonderful combination!

For those who just can't seem, or in that matter, don't want to be seen. Anyone who applies in the comments can most certainly join. You can also e-mail me if you are too shy to be seen on the comments.

On several occasions I have accidentally snuck up on people from in front, and on one occasion an oriole landed on me and then stared at me as if to say "Where the hell did you come from?" Is that the sort of thing you have in mind?

(What can I say — it takes a lot of practice to be invisible.)

That is a great example of what I am talking about. This guild is for the shadows, the people who are barely ever noticed. The unheard voices.

I have sneaked up on people so often without intending to, it`s amazing.

Same goes for online though - people often seem to miss things I post (or they just don`t care because I`m boring, I don`t know)

Because threads are effectively a conversation in slow motion I think there is a tendancy to use body language as we would in person even though we are not visible.  I may see a comment and nod in agreement or chuckle but not write in the nod/chuckle when i respond with my own comment.  I have not missed or ignored the previous comment i have merely forgotten that my response needs to be verbal and typed in order to register.
One does feel a little silly constantly using smilies or typing in "nods" every time as it feels artificial.

Sorry, did you say something? Wink

I'm fairly unheard, mostly through choice than some quasi-magical ability to fade into the background (or foreground, as necessary).

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

I'm usually so quiet as to be invisible, & can leave the room without anyone knowing I've gone - is this a knack, or am I really just not in the same world??

It's something that usually takes a fair bit of practice. Sir William Stephenson had people teaching it at Camp X.

Thanks for passing it on, it has been invaluable. It can be very useful to be able to enter or leave a group without anyone noticing. And committee meetings end up being rather sneaky as my suggestions are never heard when I make them. When they are then suggested by someone else, and taken up by the group, it creates a strangely selfless sense of superiority.

Though the most useful aspect is the ability, on reaching my alcohol limit, to teleport unnoticed straight to my bed, regardless of how many miles away it is.
