    A lot can happen in 20 years, and amazingly, 2019 is the year that marks the 20th anniversary of Sorcerer's Place going online. The list of things that haven't changed over this long period of time is definitely shorter than the list of things that have remained the same. The world at large is a much different place today than it was in 1999, and the gaming universe even more so. Thanks to @catbert , even SP received a huge overhaul this year. :kneel: I can't say how much each of our team members has changed over the last 20 years, but for myself I like to think that I'm at least a bit more grown up and wiser today.

    Despite real life and work commitments taking up a much larger chunk of my time than when I started SP all these years ago, I'm happy that I still manage to maintain it and drive things forward to an extent. Also, I am extremely grateful that many of the crew members who've been with me practically from the beginning are still around on a regular basis. @Beren , @Blackthorne TA , @dmc and @catbert continue to regularly contribute to either content creation, revision, coding, general operation of the website & the forums, and more. I can't thank these guys enough for all the time and effort that they pour into SP, so please join me in wishing them all the best and hopefully convincing them to stick around for another 2 decades. At least! :D

    A huge thank-you also goes out to all of our supporters helping me keep the lights on month after month, all the content contributors, as well as our casual visitors -- you're the reason why SP/BoM exists. I'd like to wish everyone a merry Christmas, happy holidays and a fantastic 2020 to come! :thumb:

    Oh and since we haven't posted the traditional adventuring carol in a while, here's a video version...

    That song takes me back almost 20 years, back when I seemed to stumble on these things a lot more :)

    Thanks for keeping the boards alive for so long Tal (and of course @Beren , @Blackthorne TA , @dmc and @catbert)!
