The biggest problem with Clinton was not that he screwed around, but that he lied about it.
And this is my problem with him, too. Yes he's charming and yes he's a peacemaker but I can't trust a word that comes out of his mouth. Lying about his affair is to be expected, but he lied about it under oath. If he can lie so easily when it's a crime, ain't nothing gonna stop him from lying any other time about more important things. His charming way with words doesn't help him in this argument. It just means he's better at making people believe his lies longer.

He became a fool when he argued about what the deffinition of 'is' is.

six
How many scenarios have you played?
You gonna make me go and count? Pshaw. You tell me how many I've rated and I'll tell you how many I've played.
Absolute favorite BoE scenario?
Back to Normal
When did you get the registered version of BoE for the first time?
Some time before Aug 2003
What is the first third-party scenario you played?
I don't even know what that is.
Favorite all-around scenario designer?
Um... for personality or their scenarios? TM and Measle probably
Out of your own scenarios, which do you feel is your best?
Sound Showcase. I designed it for myself and it really helped me get a handle on the sounds.
What is your favorite scenario icon?
The red castle
If you could make one BoE scenario into a movie, which scenario would it be?
Back to Normal (ain't I original?)
What is your favorite spell?
I'm blanking on it's name... the one that blesses and hastes and poisons weapons for the whole party in one fell swoop. Major Blessing I think... maybe.
What is your favorite item of all time? (It doesn't matter how many scenarios have the item in it. Can be one, can be all.)
Skull of Saphires found in Stranger's Quest
Have you ever named a place or character in a scenario after someone you know in real life?
No. Not yet anyway.
What do you think is the absolute most overrated BoE scenario of all time?
Tatterdemalion, of course I haven't played it yet so I have nothing to substanciate my claim.
What do you think is the absolute most underrated BoE scenario of all time?
Stranger's Quest - Good workout for a god party with lots of good pimped stuff. Kinda funny too.
If you could fix one bug in BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be?
The stairway bug. I hate that thing.
If you could add one new feature to BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be?
no limits
What is your least favorite scenario out of those rated 7.0 or higher on CSR?
*goes to look* Keeping in mind that I've only played about ten of them, Areni.
Which scenario do you think is the worst ever? There's lots of horribles, but only one can be the absolute worst.
minimalism
Write down the release dates of all of your scenarios. If you can't remember all of them, do the ones that you can.
Sorry Bain, the only way I'd remember is to go look it up on the forums where I'm sure you've already looked.
What is your favorite TM scenario?
NTH
What is your favorite Creator scenario?
I think I've only played Areni.
What is your favorite scenario in the Spheres trilogy?
Haven't played any yet.
What is your favorite scenario in the Adventurer's Club trilogy?
I've only played AC1 but I loved it.
What do you think is the absolute coolest innovation in a BoE scenario yet?
Frame Animation revolutionized scenarios beyond a point that no other has reached or even gotten close to.
What is your favorite BoE fansite?
:D TrueSite for Blades :D /shameless plug
What do you think would happen if Alcritas returned to the Lyceum as an active member once more?
You'd be out a job.
What scenario do you think should have won the first design contest?
You got a link to the entrants? I could probably find it but why you gotta make me think so hard?
Name one random scenario that has not been mentioned by anyone in this thread (first that comes in your head.)
Kistar's Quest
If TM returned, and he and Kel continued to argue, do you think that should continue, or do you think they just have to duke it out?
Not exactly sure what your asking here. What is 'that'? If what you're asking is what I think you're asking, I like to see catfights.

Edit: I think I pressed edit about six times. I like to read and reread for little changes here and there. Don't worry, I didn't change anything major.

Help for a game. One of the Exile Trillogy after I had registered them. I don't think I participated much in General back then, so I was able to leave for a year or so. I came back because I got bored and wanted someone to talk to who was older then five. Now I am firmly attached. I couldn't leave if I wanted to.

*Snaps fingers*

Drat! Of all the luck...

I guess Ephesos hates undead so much that even though his lungs had stopped breathing and his heart had stopped beating, the very essence of life in each and every cell caused him to speak out the spell.

Good job Dikiyoba, I am rather enjoying myself. You're allright, no matter what Aran says about you.

You missed the 'talents be increased tenfold' bit. If you've ever played a beginner scenario with a party that has every level set to ten, the rat genocide is a fairly simple thing. A mere level 5 Smite spell can take out seven rats in one blow at over 100hp each. The white, green, red, and blue rats go first of course, and in that order.

Aran is dead? Yes! I knew it!

And once all the major characters are dead there'll be more room in the story for the little people and we will take over as the new major characters and our talents will be increased tenfold and we will reign our glorious rule in the new utopia never reviving them again so they can never again hog all the limelight!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

But the only person that was ever really good at this kind of tutelage can't post because he did it too well.

I agree the spamfest must stop, but what good will it do to enforce one rule of the CoC by ignoring another?

This call to action is parallel to the one made last month.

"Let's ignore rule #X of the CoC to make the boards better."

The end result will not be any better then the first go around.

Just as predicted, 100 posts. As for spamage, my usual postage is between 30 and 40 so October was pretty low. I would conceed to 20% being spam. It's almost all reactionary and the ones that weren't are much less spammy, usually being game related questions/comments.

I will go back to business as usual in my habits so no worries over me. I will also leave the repeat chastising bit for another mouth. Who needs ten people to tell them to knock it off when they can read it fine the first time it's said? imho It's the most annoying kind of spam.

PS: tAran - Of all the topics where people were spamming (i.e. all of them!!1!1) why'd you have to go and close the one that was actually kind of interesting? (i.e. Archtypes)

*pouts at Aran*

I think I played the long way around for everything. Two questions.

Is it possible to find Rosemary? The dialogue at the battlement lent to the suspiciousion that she should be in or near the Haunted Hills. I never found her there or anywhere else.

Do you ever get your 'reward' from the mayor's aid?

It took me an hour to get through all those types and I found similarities with many.

If I'm allowed to judge myself, I'm probably Jekyll & Hyde with a backdrop of Palooka. I have been a Deacon but always end up a Target because of it. But if I let go of Deaconish restraints I could be quite Strumpetish which is really not appropriate for this board and I think popular opinion prefers the former(at least from me). Sometimes I feel like being a Troller but my strivings to be a Kung-Fu Master usually curb my cravings. In the end, out of all the personalities I've been, I've had the most fun being an Imposter.

Other personalities that I thought fit:

Imban - Godfather (he is everyone afterall)
Alec - Jerk (but in a good kind of way)
TM - Big Dog (who is allowed to be so because he's also a Lonely Guy)
Synergy - Philosopher (though he can sometimes end up a Filibuster)
Ben - Lamer Deacon (sorry buddy, but it's hard for even me to take you seriously)

Of all the people who want someone to pick one for them, I have not enough knowledge to pick for them accurately. I'll give it a shot anyway.

ET - (after knowledge of confession) is an Ennui though I was going to say Rebel w/o a clue.

DV - Rottweiler Puppy mostly because you talk about your fiesty slap of pain, but I rarely see it. I await the day you perfect it.

Garrison - Ideologue. Really I have no idea. I just picked one.

Nemesis - Acne. Really I have no idea. I just picked one.

Tyranicus - You're an Eagle Scout. An Eagle Scout with a potty mouth, but an Eagle Scout none-the-less.

Salmon - Well, this month he's been a type of Rebel Leader by being a Furious Typer. So much so that he's become a bunch of Cyber Sisters all on his own which lends me to wonder if he isn't really just a Lonley Guy with all that time on his hands.

AnarhIztok - Net Rat. Really I have no idea. I just picked one.

Edit: My brain was thinking it, my fingers just didn't type it.

Magma - Patois, though we've gotten used to you enough that most of us have stopped correcting you.

Really? How do you get away with 'seldom' snow in northern Washington? Guess I haven't really paid attention to that half of the gulf stream. I've heard about 'lots of rain in Seattle' but it never equated to 'very little snow' in my mind.

Well, to the next question... Do you come prepared with sword and steed for smiting?
