The Ross Saga
Well hello there… You may have notice someone rezing comments on The Ross Saga…Well I actually just found out about them yesterday Japan Time. It's hard not to know who the OP was if you know what signs to look for…The Dreadlord tattoo..Serpent World Inn…or the Drider girlfriend. Heck what really gave it away was the names he dropped.
I don't know if you guessed it but I'm the one who made those posts on CritCrabs The Ross Saga…I am Ross. Well I just wanted to say is don't go hating on the OP of those stories I was a handful. I was socially and emotionally stunted and naïve. I really didn't know how to handle disappointment. For those of you who thought I might be on the spectrum or have ADD, I have often wondered that myself. I honestly don't know because I will admit that I do get tunnel vision when I set my mind to something. Funny thing is that's how I got through university.
I will say something about my past though. When I was younger I did need to take speech therapy, and I did need to take special classes to help build up my gross motor skills. And coming from the background I did come from I was always put down. So it was hard for me to trust anyone. And when I did actually open up and trust someone, I cling and I cling hard. So I will admit that I was partially to blame for driving OP of the Ross Saga insane. But I wasn't all to blame and no I won't go into any details.
Critcrab if you want to read this on stream as a final, final episode to the Ross Saga go right ahead. I just wanted to let people know I'm in a better place emotionally and somewhat socially than before. There are days I admit I do still feel sorry for myself but those days a few. By the time I quit DnD with OP and friends, I was in university almost done, then I graduated. Got a job in Japan teaching English. I was able to teach English at kindergartens and now Elementary schools. I'm doing great I have friends both online and in real life who gets me and doesn't judge me.
I'm happy. Again I'm in a much better place than I was. I couldn't watch all of them because hearing what he thought of me actually stings a bit but I can laugh it off. Was I cringe? Yes. Was I stupid or an idiot? Maybe? But to be honest I didn't think I was I was trying to play in character most of the time. Characters I had approved by the OP I might add and even changed when he said it wouldn't work.
For those of you wondering about the "Water is Evil" and how I communicated/came up with it, first I thought the water was evil because I didn't see the guy saying anything I think the guy was away from me or I was away from the party, or now that I remember I think I had my eyes closed because it took concentration to do what I was doing. And to let the players know I think I either wrote it in the dirt, or on a piece of paper, or pantomimed it. I can't remember. But yeah, the point of this was to say I'm am doing awesome and thank you all for defending me.
Edited for some grammar errors. Might still be but I'm just sitting back relaxing with a whiskey and coke.
Update. I figure I should clarify something I was by no means innocent either I was a jack ass to the op and I ended up doing some terrible things to him. And while the OP did sound like an asshole, I can honestly say that he was a great guy and I hope that whatever he posts about me does help him move past everything so he could be happy.
