I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.


If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

I'm sure I wasn't the only kid and Sonic fan who was confused that Tails didn't appear in Sonic Underground, not even as a small minor character. By the time when Knuckles made his debut in a Sonic animated series. I thought Tails would appear sometime later in that show but it didn't happen. What did you think back when and What do you think now?

Likely the choice was done outta the inclusion of Sonic's siblings.  If Sonic already had a brother, it would be awkward for him to treat Tails as his little brother.  


It could have also been that the game was influenced by Sonic and Knuckles which has no Tails.

Tails might not've been featured in the show, but he still could've excited within the series' universe.

Sonic mentions having friends in the resistance before he reunited with his siblings. Since King Acorn (or rather a statue of him) and a place resembling Knothole Village are both clearly shown to exist, it's possible that Sally and the rest of the FF gang were also present. We just never got to see them.

Likewise, Robotnik mentions having underlings (Sub-Bosses?) stationed in different districts across the globe. This might explain Snively's absence in the show.

I always was disappointed that Tails wasn't in Sonic Underground, but I think you all could be right that Tails does exist off screen somewhere. Sonic could have found his siblings later on and decided to go underground with them to catch up and fight to finally free the world of Robotnik's control.

But then there's the whole, Sonic's royalty thing. But isn't Sally royalty? So if they both exist in the same universe, wouldn't there be a conflict of interest as far as Kingdoms go?
Unless...the great war was between Sonic's Kingdom and the Kingdom of Acorn. Sonic and Sally were betrothed by Queen Aleena and King Acorn to make peace between the two Kingdoms. The only canon that implies the great war was between Mobians and Overlanders was in the comics. That's definitely a possibility, and would make for an interesting crossover. 

But Underground's Robotnik seems milder than SatAM's. At the very least, Underground's Robotnik would spare aristocratic elites from Robotization as long as they did what they were told, but SatAM's wouldn't spare anyone. He wasn't satisfied if he didn't have completely control over someone's free will.

I've always believed Underground was meant to be a sequel originally but became it's own thing in development. That's why there's a prophecy about Robotnik, statues of the Acorn family but no family members, why Robotnik looks almost the exact same, so on so on.

I believe Sonic in Underground was supposed to be Sonic Junior, and the Queen would have originally been Sally. The lack of the other familiar faces is they were reworked, but would have been supporting cast.
