The history of The AbyssEdit
Chapter 1: The days of the Global Moderator SystemEdit
Originally just called Abyss, this room was famous for its attitude, regular visits from trolls, and all things generally unce-unce. We all know unce-unce can be awesome, right? Anywho, the users who frequented Abyss ( called Abyssians ) became annoyed with the target placed on the room due to it being at the top of the room list and using their awesome attitude they managed to bring a "The" to the front of the room name. This gave birth to The Abyss, and was the start to making the room a peaceful place.
With the new room name, many people began to feel a bit more at ease. The first owner was the legendary Spartakips, only a few of the current Abyssians have seen him in The Abyss. He passed the room onto invalid_user, who ushered in what many people considered to be the golden days of The Abyss. She would eventually leave The Abyss ( some say due to conflict ) and pass The Abyss down to Lurkenstein, who had never been seen in The Abyss before. Lurkenstein was a complete mystery and the transition as Room Owner was an uneasy period in The Abyss but things eventually settled down and Lurkenstein was well liked before retiring as Room Owner. Infernitorn would become the last Room Owner of The Abyss who was a moderator from the old-school Global Moderating System, and it was with Infernitorn as room owner things began to truly settle down before his eventual disappearance.
During these days The Abyss had it's fair share of outstanding regular users and supportive moderators. The moderators dehm and XXPOEXX were both known for being very friendly and amusing, often times being silly to the point where their attitudes became infectious. god_of_war was another moderator who loved hunting badges and didn't mind helping others do the same, people made "god_of_" alts in honor of him and for a long while The Abyss had "god_of_war alt days" before his eventual departure from the room. Other users such as,Granadilla40 ( now known as bethisapanda and an active Abyssian ) have provided stability during their times here as well while some of the Abyssians from the time such as manofgun and dfgfhg remained as driving forces within The Abyss into the days of the New Moderator System.
Chapter 2: The first days in the age of the New Moderator SystemEdit
The new moderating system signals a new age in The Abyss. After a long period without any regular moderators EhseJaybie was asked to be a moderator under the new system. He accepted, and The Abyss entered the new age. TheGoldenHammer, a moderator of the old system who was a regular of The Abyss at one point began to visit and has seemed to take EhseJaybie under his mentoring wing. Only time will tell what shall happen, but one thing is certain: In time, this section detailing the room's entry into the new age shall be updated.
Cultural information for visitorsEdit
The population seems mostly late teen/young adult oriented compared to than many of the rooms on Kongregate and usually moderates itself. Outside of Kongregate games the topics of discussion are often MMO related such as League of Legends or Mabinogi, news related, political, religious or sexual. Moderators who have had the most success in The Abyss are those who've tried to be more buddy-buddy as opposed to sticking strictly to the guidelines. The room is not always welcoming to new users and some of the regulars will try to test people they've not seen before, so new users should try to keep a cool head when chatting in The Abyss their first few times.
EhseJaybie (No longer a moderator)
"It's hard to believe that such a simple game can be so challenging and complex."
He's easy to impress and even easier to confuse with his interests revolving around Bushcraft, his Family/Friends, gaming, and music.
TheGoldenHammer (No longer in the Abyss)
"Google the nutrition facts!"
This IRL strongman is friendly and a fair yet tough moderator. He enjoys a good time and seems to have no problem with making sure others can enjoy a good time as well.
"Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds."
Psy pretty much lives in The Abyss. He doesn't like all these young punks and their vidier games, and also he's old. He is always there to listen to the various problems people are having. He doesn't record any of your conversations, either. He also has macho muscles and is super sexiiii.
"not better than everyone, just most."
This wasn't copied from wikipedia.
"I can see how some people might think that you were an accident. I certainly can't imagine anyone wanting you."
Amphiprison hates you. He often idles for hours only to resurface with some relevant but uninvited comment in the middle of someone else's conversation. Or to hit on Mouse.
"I prefer the term escort, not whore."
Mouse is playful, social, and sometimes saucy. Their oddly effective charms are enough to make people stay for a good time. Also the leader of the hobokin army.
“I eat more chicken than any man!”
"I'm a regular, too. D:"
An underappreciated (at least on this wiki) regular since 2008, bludude90210 continues to be loyal to The Abyss even when faced with people that don't add him to wikis and confusion on how Div can't make bold/italic text. Seriously. I press the button and it works. D:
*Claps hands over head* "I'm an ideeeeaa"
Nobody knows where he came from. He just.....you know, he's here now and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Usually gets very, very angry over the smallest things and then goes right back to normal (if you can call it normal) seconds later. He likes spamming song lyrics and sometimes quotes.
He has a mental illness of such a severe nature that he cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct his affairs due to psychosis, and is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior. He seems to be the only one who notices the horrible state of decay that plagues the chat on a daily basis. But now it's dead, he was right all along! HE wAS riGsquirrel
"We shall name our baby factory... BABY-LON!"
Coco is almost indescribable. The best way to learn about him is to talk with him.

coolloser is the big, gay, black man of the abyss. He enjoys riding on horses, (oh baby) and long moonlit walks along the beach.
"I just smoke weed and chill."
Coolspot is a friendly pot smoking Canadian who just likes to chill out and talk with people.
"I'm a terrorist!"
A long time Abyssian with a fondness for noodles. Her passion for gaming is matched by her passion for being herself.
"If you need a little sunshine you can borrow some of mine."
Everyone in the Abyss calls her Deeno for short. She is known to talk about weird things, while being slightly flirtatious towards some of the other members. She doesn't get mad easily but is passionate about certain subjects such as thing involving politics, the government, laws, animals, love, equal rights, etc. Dino hates Caiky, and she is super beautiful, k. (I don't hate Caiky lol) Dino is a vegetarian punk who likes to play a lot of puzzle games like tetris and sudoku, which is why I'm still level 11 after being on Kong since 2010 haha. I recently got a guinea pig and named it Zoloft :D meow.
"I'm irregular, too. :D"
An underappreciated (at least on this wiki) regular since 2008, Divreus continues to be loyal to The Abyss even when faced with people that don't add him to wikis and confusion on how to make bold/italic text. Seriously. I press the button and nothing happens. D:
"My friends call me Captain Obvious, because I point out the obvious a lot."
An RP enthusiast.
"what do you mean this song is awesome"
Is either very welcoming or a really bad troll. Often comes in flooding the room with rambles, or doing the polar opposite, saying nothing. Infamous for th
"So, I can easily enough possess my children if i do die."
The head cheerleader and the warming smile of The Abyss. Always caught picking fights with guys, and manipulating them, but it is how she shows she cares. Much better at annoying than scaring someone off and she knows it, and is not afraid to show you.
"Cut me some slack, Jack! Chump don' want no help, chump don't GET da help!"
Shenanigans and mayhem and mischief and shenanigans. Jane is away at the moment, and is positive that the abyss is quite dull and lonely without her... But she'll pop in again someday.
"Three kinds of people: gay, bi & not gay yet."
Normally a quiet person, kboy tends to say hi and shut up. Unless he has an opinion, then he says hi, states his opinion, and shuts up. Reg since 2011, he enjoys reading/listening to the conversation, and singing.
"I know shit tons of martial arts .__."
The most killer piece of caik ever enjoyed in The Abyss. So awesome, he's called KillerCaik because he can't spell cake correctly.
"What's my quote? :D"
He is constantly called "Her" instead of "Him", which makes him mad! He's white, but lives up the street from a KFC so he is told he is black most of the time. True Abyssian since 2008.
"You're my friend, then i'm your friend!"
He is called "Kreg" by his friends. He loves music, games and friends too. Nobody Knows his real name, he is a mystery fellow. The Perfect Friend for everybody :). Kreg is a funny guy with humour and laughter.Best Abyssian (maybe) since 2014.
"So much pressure... qq"
Went from awesome to childish, everyone wonders what happened... And then we remembered he was never awesome.
"Furthermore, I would not put it past Kinky to completely demoish the socia heirarchy of the room by - oh crap mano's here I'm out."

Second in status, Ole has maintained that no matter how many screen shots you have to prove otherwise, she has totally never flashed a room full of Abyssians, on any video site, ever. Especially not Kink.

An older regular with a level head and a level buttocks who comes in a few times a day to shoot the excrement. Rabid prefers to avoid the more juvenile topics that can crop up in the Abyss and tends to speak mostly to the regulars.
The mid class troll of The Abyss, rivriv0 is also a mid class sir. Most often, he will troll. So if you meet him, don't troll him back, or you will pay for it!
"These aren't your normal "Human Beings" in this place :o"
Part of the race known as "The Quiet One's", usually babbles on with the others when he feels normal, until the philosophical talks take place. Then it's back to the dungeon/mansion for him to look over his dead father's life goals. (In memory of Tony Montana, AKA Big Pops)
Known for always popping back in when it's convenient. He's just some guy but he's always lurking in the shadows.

Yeah, she doesn't really care about anything, much. I mean, you wouldn't either, if you realized that the world is going to end soon.
Music nerd with a God complex. Be careful what you listen to, he will make your ears bleed with his musical knowledge and righteous tastes. Also, he thinks he's in charge, make sure you listen to him kids, or there will be blood.

Our resident dealer - he would be a creeper if he wasn't just being nice.
"I'm new here, can i stay? mean, all chat rooms need a mythical creature of some sort, right?"
A very cool person, possibly the coolest in The Abyss, the king of the Abyssians, it would be nothing without Tux, that's right, he likes to mention how good the feeling is after doing a poo poo, and how it can clench to his hair, causing one big mess, but nonetheless, He's a great guy, and a true, Abyssian.
an odd person who clawed his way from the void on april 29th 2010 as a shit noob who didnt understand being trolled, it took an almost 2 year hiatus from kong for him to grow up a bit....hes still a shit noob though, he tends to babble about ponies,anime, video games 'n shit....he is currently working to make people stop bitching about fandoms(hes currently failing horribly)...he plays alot of rpgs and old games, but has a softspot for games like minecraft, nintendogs, and literally anything from fromsoft or tony hawk proskater....also, it seems most of his friends are gay...and hes ok with that. also friggin hates reddit due to that shitty subreddit prereq shit
