June will be both the beginning and end of an era: Sanctuary Crew will be moving almost all of our streaming video operations over to Hitbox.TV!
This has been a long time coming; some of our oldest friends will remember that we left Livestream for Justin.TV after several years of increasing headaches. We were amongst the channels that the Justin.TV staff interviewed during the process of spinning off the gaming channels to their new Twitch platform, and we really do have to thank Twitch and their staff for all the wonderful times.
However, recently Twitch stability and policy has been somewhat problematic, and recent attempts to work out some details with Twitch staff have not been satisfactory. Sanctuary Crew has been doing some quiet, limited testing of the Hitbox platform, and we’re mostly impressed with what we’ve seen.
The quality is higher on the same bitrate, chat is more stable and more featureful, and the stream latency is generally at the 3-5 seconds we used to enjoy on Justin.TV. We believe this will be better for both us and our viewers.
We hope you will join us on the new platform.
I did say almost all of our streams will be moving to Hitbox. PS4 game streams, especially those with viewer interaction, will continue to appear on Twitch as that’s the only place those game streams function correctly. If and when Hitbox gains that capability, we’ll reassess the situation.

On February 24th, we will be running a Lufia-thon in celebration of the original Japanese release of Lufia 2 (or Estpolis Denki 2 as it was known then).
Seolla will be on Lufia 2, therpgfan on Lufia 1, and I will be playing Lufia: The Legend Returns because I hate myself (I actually like the game).
So, this was just a heads up. If anyone wants to play any other Lufia game (Ruins of Lore or Curse of the Sinistrals), what’s wrong with you? I mean… you’re more than welcome to… but… um… what’s wrong with you?
Long Ago, when Char was but a teenager,there was a game called Navyfield. It was at it’s time, and technically still is, on of the only Naval-Based World War Two MMORPGs. Made by SDEnterNET WAY back in 2004,it is a sprite based MMORPG Focused on the Naval Combat of World War 2.From the Isometric Perspective, you Captain your mighty vessel to Victory or Defeat. You had Sailors representing the major stations of your ship. as They leveled up,you got access to better equipment and Larger,more Powerful Vessels. It was simplicity in itself. at the time, I was riding the High of Koei’s Naval Ops: Commander,and this game was the closest thing to it. but now,it was online!

There are no set lengths to the slots. If you feel like you can be an emergency back up for that slot as well, feel free to note that. If anyone has any ideas for any potential multiplayer streams that would be amazing.
I’ll try my best to take up any free slots but I can’t guarantee my availability especially early in the morning.
If there are any questions or conflicts, feel free to ask. You all should know where to catch me by now.
So, streaming capabilities is a go. I’m planning to run Romance of the Three Kingdoms for Extra Life. I’m going to poke a lot of you to get you to create a character so that the Sanctuary Crew can conquer China. Anyone who wants to take initiative on that is more than welcome to poke me first.
Here’s some idea of what you’ll need to think about:
Name: Surnames appear first because China. For example: I used RPG as my surname so that it appears as RPG Mel710 in the game
Stats: The game doesn’t give me a limit to what stats I can give everybody, but it’d be no fun to make everyone complete powerhouses so I’ve limited the stat point allocation to 360 of a possible 500. The stats are Leadership (affects how strong your army is), War (affects your dueling ability), Int (affects how powerful/effective your strategies are), Pol (affects your ability to get civil work- like finding officers and diplomacy- done), and Charisma (affects how well you can charm people into working for you)
