Gantic Romantic offers an intimate look into Armor Games' most mysterious moderator beginning with his early writing experience, through his innovative and subversive contest entries, his subsequent inclement vignettes set in the subconscious, and his lean but pithy literary stylings and reserved humor that forever cemented his aura of mystique. In a riveting series of autobiographical interviews conducted by himself in third person, the lexophilic moderator explores his enlightening three years on Armor Games. By drawing on his past experiences and indirectly encouraging others to see beyond the word during the time he has spent in the community, the eclectic writer unknowingly shrouded himself in impenetrable sesquipedalia and Gantitudinal platitudes but in [i]Gantic Romantic[i] now seeks to cut through the clutter capitalizing characteristic incisiveness to unveil the truth. The interviews revel in his sense of wordplay and whimsical subversion of language transparent in his dialogue as both the interviewer and interviewee. While too often are writers, and other artists, too vain to recognize their own failings, this impressive collection of verbose and laconic conversations is both an inflationary and humbling commentary--on himself and the community in which he seems hermetic.

Unravel the mysteries Friday nights at 11 pm, starting June 10th.

It's the price of Genius. Or madness?

Anyhow, my interest is piqued to the utmost.

And some more people's brains just exploded...mine just didn't respond due to the state of post-exam mush.

This will be...adequately enlightening.

Somehow, I feel like I have accomplished something by being able to comprehend one of Gantic's threads.

Anyhow, my interest is piqued to the utmost.

Ditto.

From the creator of Gantic Romantic comes I Wanna Nurvana, Fallen Sky, Super Fly, You Lyin', kingryan?, and Merry MoonFairy. In stores today! Get the collection now!

Jokes aside...
That is as accessible as I dare make it and still sound promotional. The critics are raving:

"...he...co...o...l..." -- N., Terra Pacis
"...Genius. Or madness?" -- F. Sky, The Wordshop
"...enlightening." -- K. Ryan, S.P. Gallery
"...accomplished..." -- M. Fairy, The Metrophobia

Further jokes aside...
It really isn't and isn't going to be that hard to understand.

*sigh of relief*
Wait a minute. That's like a teacher saying the test isn't going to be hard. Obviously it's not going to be considered hard for the teacher, because they already learned it.
Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see.

My head was already about to explode. Thanks you Gantic for making it implode. Does that make sense? I don't know, but I'm to tired to fix it. :P

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on this.

Is this your evil mastermind plan, Gantic?!
To confuse the poor souls that come stumbling upon this thread in hopes of understand your brilliant yet incredibly confusing vocabulary?!

"...accomplished..." -- M. Fairy, The Metrophobia

BAH! Like I would ever say that! *continues shining your shoes*

I'm assuming the confusion is going to get worse as we see more, sadly.

*absolutely mind blown*
I've always thought that I have a decent knowledge of English, but the outstanding verbosity of your wall of text hit me like a train in the face. I had to concentrate a lot to actually understand the meaning, covered by the mass of redundant and succulent words. Sweet.

Isn't that all the pleasure of having such a reclusive mod as Gantic. I doubt he has the abilty to express himself simply enough so as to make us understand; writers of caliber often disdain revert to simple vocabulary.

Wait and see, wait and see...

I'm getting more curious by the second, honestly.

I just decided to read the opening paragraph... XD

It's hard to evaluate your definition of ''humor'', given your intricate feather, but yes.

I'm just playing along for now.
