I think saying "good morning" is a wish to someone else, rather than a statement that it is, in fact, a good morning. Either way, it's kind of lost its original meaning, and is now a generic greeting, kind of like "How ya doin?" When someone you don't know says that, they usually don't really care. They're just expressing courtesy.
When somebody I don't know asks me how I'm doing, I take great care to make them wish they'd never asked me, by dumping all manner of my issues and problems on them.

I've seen both Yellow Submarine and Magical Mystery Tour, and will agree that they're both fairly high on the scale of weirdness.

You just haven't drunk enough to appreciate them.

It's not enslavement. They asked us to do it. And now they're getting all like "we want our own Parliament, and we don't want to be part of the Union anymore, 'cus we're better." Which is tosh, of course. I say build that wall back up, and see how long they last. We could get the guys that did the Berlin wall in!

I've had a wand since about level 7, and I didn't even know what it did. Now I know you need it for ascending though, so yay! I should be doing it in the next day or so, when I get some decent familiars.

Yeah, they weren't showing up, but no error was being displayed, hence me re-releasing. I assumed that the fix was for new scenarios, and not one of the old ones.

Anyway, if I clicked on to one of my scenario releases, it showed me the file sizes for both the Mac and Windows download, but not the actual links.

Ha ha ha.

Right everybody, lets stop the fussing and the feuding. Tullegor, Nioca - write posts as long as you like. If it's mega-long and somebody misses something in it, then you'll have to deal with it, and let them know or something. This isn't me being snide either, I'm just saying that not everybody will have unlimited time to read everything.

I'd like to also bring up one point in particular. Tully - people haven't got an aversion to reading, which is a fairly poor reading of what's been said, itself done in a clumsy way. It's that people have limited time, and when they do decide to post here, they don't want to spend 3 hours catching up with everything else that's going on. I think setting yourself a target length would be a nice idea. That way, you can go over it without people weeping, or crying into their tea, but you're more likely to be concise.

Also, Dip should be allowed to join, as a new faction if needed. If only because I can't decide whether or not he's being sincere either. :)

I prefer the old title.

Name: Grand-master Funk, although Nikki will do.
Email address: nikkisjeffery(at)hotmail.co.uk, or AIM me.
Platform/OS: Windoze Vista Ultimate.
Prior experience: I tested Tales from the Tabard Inn, but don't hold that against me. Erm, Exodus before it went public, ItSoD, and, saving the best til last, Muffins 'n' Hell. There might be others, and of course, I "make" scenarios myself.
Whether or not you'll actually provide any useful feedback: Yes, but whether or not you listen is upto you. Read into that what you will. :P

Umhmm. I do expect to get to Sanctuary with about only half of my people. Any more than that and I have an issue, especially since you are now bowing out after just attacking me. :-p

By which I mean, I am sorry it took so long to post, but I wrote this out three times, at least. And didn't use any of them.

Delan

The city was silent. Almost everybody had left for the north when the smoke from Delis became visible. Only a handful of people had escaped from Delis; after destroying several of the Hunter's warships, the city has attacked by infantrymen, and razed. Pergies had suffered a smiliar fate, but no survivors made it from Perrin or New Sumar.

Gathin had given the order to leave after mulling his options for a while. He had sent a small force to both Sanctuary and The Dominion, telling his men there what had happened and where the Empire would be taking its people for the time being. After word that the Phoenix Empire had been temporarily dislogded from Krizsan province, and was preparing to leave, Gathin had taken Barleycorn and executed him by firing squad. The pitiful man had tried to stab one of the jailers, but was quickly subdued. As the arrows found their mark, a cheer went up in the town sqaure - one small act of revenge against the Hunters.

A few flags fluttered in the breeze, a reminder that the Empire would return one day. For now though, almost all of the population were winding their way around the mountains, aiming for Sanctuary, and the land beyond.

Sanctuary

The advance group that Gathin had sent to Sanctuary had arrived at the gates. It had been a struggle to get through Hunter land without being seen, what with the increased number of patrols, but they had done it. A wiry fellow named Fleet marched up to a soldier at the gates, and asked to be taken to Iocabe. The soldier nodded - word had already arrived of the Hunter's attacks with Sarrin, and he was in no mood to stop these heavily-armed soldiers from entering the city.

Fleet recited his message again, under his breath as he waited to be granted audience. The Phoneix Empire is making it's way north. Once there, it will help bolster the armies of Sanctuary, and settle in the northern spaces of Valorim. It wasn't an offer of help so much as a thirst for the blood of the Hunters, but the priests didn't need to know that...

Dominion

The second group Gathin had sent had a much more difficult time getting to their destination. Ambushed by Hunter forces, they only just managed to escape, with minimal casualties. As the reached the Dominion capital, they slowed down. Their job was just to tell Battle Mage Brand that the Empire had relocated North, and then leave for Aminro.

The "negotiations" so far between the Empire and The Dominion had drawn blanks. Neither one was prepared to fully accept the other's point of view, but with news of an open attack on Imperial people, maybe that would change...
