Dikiyoba assures you that raptors and dikiyoras are very different. The fact that they are both similarily-sized evil reptiles is mere coincidence.

I have individual appearance pages for Episodes 1-4 (but not for 5 yet) in with the episodes themselves. Episode 3 is here. The other episodes are easy enough to get to through my signature.

Dikiyoba always envisioned shock troopers to be more in favor of quick battles, not pitched ones. Poor magic makes them more vulnerable--they can't cast the best buffs or rely on mental magic to scare opponents, so there's only so much damage they and their creations can take. Light armor makes more sense than heavy armor if they engage in hit-and-run tactics. Get in quickly, do heavy damage while the enemy is surprised and unprepared, then get out quickly.

Deathmatch Tournament -- Round Two, Part Two in General

5. Nemesis vs. Emperor Tullegolar
Nemesis sets his sword dainslaifs up to whirl around like fan blades. Poor ET, with his massive feather, is quickly picked up by the wind the dainslaifs generate and is blown away. Nemesis.

6. Zeviz vs. Stareye
I see two possibilities with the antimatter machine. Either it's a realistic antimatter machine, in which case it takes so long to produce enough antimatter to annihilate Zeviz that the fight has long been over, or it's a super-advanced antimatter machine, in which case it's indistinguishable from magic and therefore vulnerable to Zeviz's antimagic spell. Stareye then launches a scripting attack, but Zeviz uses his computer skills to hack into BoE and stops it. Then he uses the scrying pool to avoid Stareye's boot. Now it's a stalemate, with the Sword of Damocles and the threat of nuclear war looming overhead. Soon, though, Zeviz gets bored and pushes the big red button. Zeviz.

7. Student of Trinity vs. Salmon
This battle begins as one of the oddest debates Spiderweb has ever seen. Salmon tries to bait Student of Trinity into losing his cool. Student of Trinity responds with several one-liners that leave Salmon reeling, until one comment snags his interest and he begins to muse on its implications. It's the distraction Salmon needs. He uses his carpentry skills to build a small boat. Then calls up his KoL clanmates and convinces them to flood the place with spam. Student of Trinity realizes what happens and attempts to summon a trinity to save him. Unfortunately, he summons Trinity River (either one) and drowns. Salmon.

8. Jewels vs. Terror's Martyr
For right or for wrong, love is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. It allows Jewels to endure TM's worst scorn and insults and come back for more. It enables her to fight her way through all of TM's scenarios while enduring TM's worst scorn and insults in hope that she will be allowed to smother him with love at the end of this match. It makes her beg for TM's return after he is banned, and it lets her survive his tentacle attack with no ill effect. TM is powerless to stop her. But in the end, love is Jewel's downfall, as she sacrifices her life so that TM might move on. Terror's Martyr.

1. Alorael vs. the Silent Assassin
Sure, Alorael changes his name all the time. That's not too tough to figure out. It's Alorael's identity that's impossible to know. Is he an Alaskan pedophile in his fifties? A sweaty Korean businessman? An angelic transvestite? All of the above? The Silent Assassin's stealth is useless if he doesn't know who to attack. Fortunately, he has Lord Grimm to help him, and Lord Grimm has access to a radio. Together, they decide that Lord Grimm will announce a parade while the Silent Assassin hides in the spot Alorael will want to snipe from. Unfortunately, Alorael's skill at inserting himself into conspiracies means he knows about the plan in advance and is waiting for the Silent Assassin instead. Alorael.

2. ADoS vs. Arancaytar
At first, it seems Arancaytar has a clear advantage. He has enough statistics gathered to know exactly how ADoS is likely to fight. Too bad all those statistics were fakes planted by the Flying Spaghetti Monster, rendering them all worthless. Arancaytar has some impressive coding too, but even he admits it will be another two years before he will be able to kill people with it. [Edit: Okay, so that was HTML only. But it does cast significant doubt on his ability to kill someone with PHP when combined with the blatant bias in his post.] ADoS summons his fluffy turtles. Arancaytar summons Cthulhu. The sanity-eating turtles get confused by the insanity-inducing Elder God and run away. Unfortunately, Arancaytar is now gibbering mad. ADoS is saved only by an outplant malfunction. Arancaytar tries to hide in a Terragen picture, but ADoS easily sniffs him out. In desperation, Arancaytar grabs a fluffy kitten and stuffs it up ADoS' nose. The resultant sneeze crumbles Arancaytar into delicious bacon bits. ADoS.

3. Goldenking vs. Drakefyre
Their respective religions are both so absurd they cancel out. Goldenking goes to edit the EE so that the Great Spider has more power. Drakefyre reverts it back and casts divine warrior. Goldenking uses a skribbane-infused canister. They duke it out for a while. Drakefyre is weak against Goldenking's not-grounded-in-reality attack type. He's about to go down when the police show up and arrest Goldenking for child abuse. Drakefyre.

4. Ash Lael vs. Dintiradan
1. In battles of good vs. evil, good usually wins in the end.
2. Evil Overlords always lose.
3. Chainsaws cause massacres.
Ash Lael.

Dikiyoba.

I've never done it in G4 before, but I think I can do it. You'll have to test it, though, and be warned it could mess up your game somehow.

First, find the file gf4itemschars. It's in the Scripts folder. Make a back-up copy somewhere safe. Then search for shock trooper to bring up this bit of text:

begindefinecreature 49;
cr_name = "Shock Trooper";
cr_graphic_template = 150;
cr_max_health = 28;
cr_max_energy = 20;
cr_sound_when_slain = 106;
Change cr_graphic_template = 150; to cr_graphic_template = 140; and cr_sound_when_slain = 106; to cr_sound_when_slain = 127;. This will change your shock trooper into a lifecrafter on the main playing screen.

Next, save a back-up copy of the file G209 and save G208 as G209. This will change the shock trooper inventory picture into the lifecrafter inventory picture.

And that should be it. You'll still see the shock trooper graphic when you go to choose your character, but in-game it'll be the lifecrafter graphic.

Let Dikiyoba know if it works or not.

Your first illustrations were actual illustrations, not propaganda posters. There is a difference. (Mostly in subtlety, in all honesty.)

Dikiyoba still has no objections to the illustrations.

Dikiyoba just had some salmon jerky. It was okay, but Dikiyoba wouldn't have it again. Turkey jerky is better.

Michael checked the sun's progress across the sky. It was already midmorning. If they didn't leave soon, it would be too hot to travel. And at the rate things were going, if they waited until the afternoon, they'd never go at all.

Michael didn't believe there was a demon. But he wasn't going to rule out the possibility entirely.

"Can we go? Now?" Michael asked.

You'll need a horn. (There's one somewhere around the outside edges of the building.) Then head to the room of pillars (I think--it's been a very long time) and you should be given an option to blow it. Do so, and you will be given a clue for the next step.

The Trakovites aren't related to Trajkov and the Sholai at all. They chose their name based on vague rumors about Trajkov and what he did on Sucia Island, and those rumors weren't exactly accurate.
