... with a pen, you mean.

And Nioca, I know. I've posted subterraneously too, if you know what I mean.

Richard White made Galactic Core. It's a space simulation for Macintosh. He also made Lost Souls and Ocean Bound.

Fans occasionally credit him, in spirit, with Homeland, but Homeland is not as good by far, it is for PC, and Richard White had nothing to do with its conception. Richard White did write several books about the Department of Homeland Security, but that's probably a different Dick.

Nevertheless, Homeland was unofficially included when long ago the Galactic Core forum (its former name evidenced by this topic among others) became the Richard White Games forum. That was around the summer of 2004, but my PPP2 archive of GC/RWG is completely lost, so I have nothing of that period.

GC/RWG was Spiderweb's 13th forum, and it was a place of spam, laughter and merriment. Well, of spam. For a brief time, the Galactic Core Historical Society held humorous picture contests in it. Alorael moderated the forum with the required extreme prejudice. Its two greatest highlights, in my opinion, was one of the longest running topics and also a parody in song.

GC/RWG was closed last year. Unlike Misc, you can look at some of the archives. The spam is of a lower grade than Misc. But as with Misc, you had to have been there to understand.

Except that Icshi laid out some details succinctly.

And you trust that once McCain is president and has no need to pander, he'll go back to moderate.

Wait. Of course he will still have re-election to consider. So once he's in his second term in 2012, he can follow his conscience and be a moderate.

Okay.

last.fm, for the uninformed, is a huge aggregator that profiles your musical preferences. By installing a plugin available for several media players, you can send it information about all music you listen to, which it will then aggregate into charts.

Oh, right, privacy. Not much of that, no. I don't mind everyone knowing when I listen to the Soviet National Anthem and The Lumberjack Song, but your mileage may vary.

A few months ago, after Nikki, Thralni and I had found each others' profiles, we had enough for a Spiderweb group (3 members minimum). After being advertised on Shadow Vale, it's grown to 8 people, so we're all wondering if any more last.fm users are lurking in here. Feel free to join!

http://www.last.fm/group/Spiderweb

(Also, feel free to use this topic to plug any other presences of Spiderweb on other social networks.)

I've described my own match already. Unfortunately I won't have the time to make a single mega-post, so I need to write the matches out one by one as I find time and inspiration.

Ephesos vs. Goldenking

Bit for bit, the gimmicks of these two spellcasters are evenly matched. Goldenking's skribbane can be neutralized with a few alchemical tricks that Ephesos has up his sleeve, while Eph's crickets, being insects, fall prey to Goldenking's deity.

But Ephesos is a more powerful priest than Goldenking is a wizard. His Divine Retribution packs a big punch, while Goldenking has only his genetically enhanced combat spells and Aura of Flames. Pizza and all manners of fast food are of course abhorrent to the nature-loving druid, and so Goldenking's Pizza shield can protect him for a while. Goldenking readies his gun.

Sudddenly, there is a low, quiet Hoom-Homm.

Accompanied by a soprano melody that gradually gains force, the Trees Are Going To War!

Things look very bad for Goldenking. He doesn't even have a tower. Desperately, Goldenking tries his aura of flames to repel the ents, but as everyone knows, this is a Bad Idea. If only he had invested some time in Sonic spells...

Not enough pieces of Goldenking are left for a proper burial, and when it is over, The Druid stands supreme.

MATCH #3: Definitely not cute vs. cute as a button. FIGHT!
Alas, alas I expire, slain by a pencil wielded by the cello-goddess. :(

Not a fair match, even if you forget that for some ridiculous reason I am a bacon strip. She beat Dikiyoba, for heaven's sake.

Well, okay. Here's how it goes down.

Nico's pencils are unmatched as close combat weapons, and I have no close combat weapon. Clearly, my only chance is to end the match before she moves in close enough to reach.

My trusty bots are easily able to keep surveillance on her, and, being scripted constructs, are invulnerable to cuteness (as well as incapable of mentioning it and falling afoul of the pencil).

I hope that a fluffy kitten will elicit some sort of response from the lass, but unfortunately it just slows her down by beginning a staredown. Good enough, for now. In the distance, I ready my bacon drop attack...

When Nicothodes gets out her cello.

Endeavorbot manages to resist the melody, but Piperbot is completely taken in. He enters a duet, and his magical flute summons all the threads of Spiderweb. In the ensuing flood of posts, Endeavorbot is forced into an immediate census. Cats are also musical creatures, and my kitten is now comfortably asleep.

My defenses, in short, are gone. The Encyclopedia Ermariana is useless against one both equipped with pens and a tendency to invent languages. Statistics cannot save against music, and Ms. Eyebrow is unfazed by poses. In desperation, I snatch away Piperbot's magic flute (shorting him out, unfortunately), and try my own bardic skills. Even though I'm technically a piano player, I manage to hold Nicothodes at bay for a moment.

Then she utters a few fateful words.

Stolah u kulame. Kulame dam zunai...

Mult charach!

My demise is swift as Nicothodes moves in for the kill, but my last expression is one of bliss, with half a cookie still in my hand.
