I reference it quite a bit actually, though it's gone from "Super Secret Villain Lair" to "Secret Villain Lair" and now to just "Villain Lair"
And Mizal's actually the admin over there (Or rather she pretends she is, Axiom is the real one) so she's the one that invites people and yeah I question her choices as well. (And Mayana's been one of the better ones)
Doubting your credentials wasn't the intention of my message, for what it's worth you're pretty professional in your roasts/sarcasm, and that is something to appreciate.
Just the idea of staffing young people in a Villain's Lair makes me think that either they're down to their last legs (conscripting children and the elderly because they've burned out of service age recruits, like Germany in the final days of WW2), or that it's really just the Lair of the 'Evil' Knights Who Mostly Whine, Slay Snakes, and Don't Really Do Anything Really Evil. Assuming Steve's in the Lair (which I assume, given how much Mizal/Steve spills out onto the forums), I suspect it's more of the latter.
An alternate possibility is that the Lair is mature enough to have an evil mentorship program, which would be perfectly reasonable explanation to your induction, and elevate my respect of the Lair. Right now, the best analogue of the Villain Lair I can think of is the Springfield Republican Party from the Simpsons, doesn't exactly inspire terror.
Current active members: Mizal, Me, Mayana, IAP, Malk, Steve, Axiom, JJJ and Ivy (Though the last two haven't been around for awhile and Axiom barely even speaks anymore)
Here's a list of Mizal's recruitment program, if you can make sense of all of it be my guest.
Mason - Lol, boy did that backfire on Mizal. We all told her that was a horrible idea. Snitched to Bad Mod Kiel at the time which sparked the Great Rebellion of 2016 probably a little early, so maybe he was useful after all. Thrown out.
Thara - Bucky originally suggested her and she ended up becoming hated by almost everyone there, but I just thought she was misunderstood. Thrown out Self Imposed Exile (Believe who you want!), but in any case she moved on to a superior villain mentorship program anyway.
Wibbons - Actually was a pretty good fit, used to argue with Steve all the time. One day Malk demanded she be thrown out, Ax and Mizal didn't give a shit because she was being an asshole about cats at the time and nobody was around to defend her. Thrown out.
Bucky - This is the most surprising one who isn't there anymore, seeing as he was an original member. A series of disagreements that caused a permanent rift between him and certain members. (Not me though, for I am a people person) Not thrown out, instead he took self-imposed exile.
SkyTenshi - She was a bit boring and Steve hated her. Not thrown out, but she's seemingly disappeared from here as well.
Insanebutvain - Given how much of a wild child she is, she had a lot in common with Steve, who still hated her. She's possibly even lazier than Mizal, so she hasn't been around for quite awhile. Mostly talked about what recent STD she caught from whatever furry orgy she attended.
Ogre and Will - Actually I often forget they even joined. They don't pop up too much for obvious reasons.
Puddlebunni - Don't even fucking ask. Malk thought it would be funny. Glad I missed that one. I don't think she actually got thrown out though.
BlueSabere (Azure at the time) - Even Mizal has admitted this was without a doubt the most retarded thing they've ever done. I missed this one as well so happily I didn't get included in this retardation.
Briar - I suggested her, but unfortunately she's got weird hours, so when she's on, nobody else is around. She's always welcome though!
Quite the line-up.
Haven't interacted with Mason directly, so no opinion. The important question is whether ratting out the League of Evil put him in his own League of Evil, or just a league of idiocy. The answer is out there somewhere.
Thara graduated to a superior trainee program
WIBN makes coherent discussion, surprised she (he?) was given the boot.
Bucky's decision is surprising, didn't expect him to not be on the Round (or whatever shaped) table that there is
Seems Steve has an issue with everyone, which makes him fairly flat as a character template.
Perhaps Ogre and Will brought on to play the role of foil to Steve?
Puddle seems cool, no idea what happened there
The BlueSabere decision must have been Ford's randomness rubbing off on mizal
Briar's been offsite for a fair while in any case.
Was surprised to see 3J on the list and Sent and Seto not on it
I'm guessing we just have a little too much Kiel aftertaste.
I think with you, it's just that Steve and Malk just really hate you a lot.
Well, glad to know nothing's out of the ordinary.
Lol, i'm actually glad i'm not part of this. Sounds like i'd get eaten alive.
Damn, I sure did. Better add him in the current line up.
Fuck off, that was funny. Dude had no idea what was going on and we kept pretending to be different people.
Will has showed up even less than you have, so not really surprising that you've missed him. Sort of stopped altogether a long time ago.
Lol let's be real. Vain died of AIDS
Hmm, spotted my name, but I don't get the game. I feel like that one semi retarded Rainbowdash girl from a while back for asking this. but, uh, what is the Villian Lair? Sounds cool and I probably would suck at it.
Well whatever it is, Briar is cool cool and would probably be cool cool at it...if she ever appeared again....
EDIT: Okay now I know what the Villian Lair is!
EDIT EDIT: Wait...Is it that chat thingy that Malk wanted me on for some strange reason? I think I showed up once, confused and apparently too enthusiastic. What's up with Malk, anyways? His pic from the selfie thread haunts me.
Puddle's account of the place makes it sound like Malk lured her in with candy, drugged her and then dumped her back home with no recollection of the place until I brought it up that she was actually there once. Lol.
You were one of the less annoying forum members so I invited you. Don't feel too good about yourself; Mason also got an invite.
Hold up, someone actually wrote a story, JUST about masturbating? That wasn't just part of it, but the entire thing was just...? Wow.
That was AYT who did that story.
And then it was even made into a storygame parody with members of this site.
"Many say various outside influences set Bad Mod Kiel's fall in motion, but the truth is the only one who set his fall in motion was himself."
I thought it was set in motion by Kiel giving Mod powers to a minor account. >.>
That's the story I heard.
Maybe it was fake news?
He had also begun furiously humping everything in sight during that time as well.
Eh, I wouldn't say "furiously" humping...
“When times got hard in the land of CYStia, instead of helping with the defenses, Bad Mod Kiel would furiously rut with young tribe members in front of an audience instead.”
We've got an entire prophecy written here.
BHB is Berka's Lair. Totally different set of members and personalities.
And if you believe an old member by the name of James, the whole reason BHB was invented was to torment him.
Its strange to receive insults from someone who's only form of learning about social interactions is from TvTropes.
Wait a minute, I must defend my good name. At the time I hardly joined anyway because that place was maze-like to use on my device anyway. I believe that I joined a whopping two times and the second time Steve kicked me or something and I didn't bother joining back because at the time it was full of dull whining about abuse from Bad Touch Kiel.
So just change it to self-imposed exile or something.
Sure, sure, you chose to left. Whatever you say, darling.
I know that you miss me... because it seems I left quite an impression on your hearts the two times I've been there. Don't worry, you're always welcome to send me a random message about the miscellaneous whenever you need your fix.
I'm sure she chose to leaf, despite this club sounding fantastick. It sounds like the sys-stem didn't work out too well, and when trying to join again after leaving, she wasn't treeted very well and got kicked out. At least that's how I think it wood go down.
Well you're incorrect and the puns were more cringy than usual today.
I'll be honest, I had not much of an idea what I was talking about really, I just felt like making some puns since i've gone a week or so without them.
Is that so? Well since you've been such a disobedient pet today you're going without supper tonight.
Again? I really need to learn how to make mindless puns in private.
It would be a blessing.
Only for CYStia. After a few weeks of saving up puns i'd probably have to go to a random pun website (if any exist) and kill everyone there with horrible puns.
Meanwhile, in the Hall of Doom...
Sounds like a crrraaaaazy place.
