That's not a fair comparison, since in eight years you expect some genuine changes in people. Of course you're not going to hung out with the same people, or even be particularly close to a lot of them. Interests change. You end up with different kids in each new class. Kids move in and out.

Hmm. Dikiyoba rather thought she was comparing you to this fellow:

Not yet. Dikiyoba was kind of expecting ET to post, but if he doesn't, Dikiyoba will make another post sometime tonight.

His profile does say "Arancaytar Ilyaran Belyen".

Dikiyoba supposes we just have to call him Aaron Carter until this whole mess is cleared up. :P

I think he meant G4.

There are ensnaring crystals in G1, G2, and G3. They seem to have been replaced with ensnaring fibers in G4.

There's a timeline at the bottom of the first post. The newest event is the meeting actually starting in the evening/night of day 2, and many characters are either there or very close to there.

First, I am not annoyed as I make this post.

Second, I'd go reread Drew's post again, because his post did not compare you to a Final Fantasy character. His advice would have been equally relevant if your gimmick was to throw paper planes at people instead of stabbing them with a giant sword--it's your attitude around the gimmick more than your gimmick itself that is causing problems. And it was serious advice, not something meant to make you look bad.

Dikiyoba is out of time, so hopefully that is enough explanation. If not, Dikiyoba will try to clear things up later.

G2, at least, had a few shaped lances. More damage than steel javelins but rare. Probably very rare; I don't know, since I don't use javelins.

G1 has Fiery Wands (firebolt spell), Discipline Wands (deals a lot of damage, but only to creations), Terror Wands (terror spell, I assume), Null Wands (damage and stunning?), and Jeweled Wands (essence orbs?).

Synergy. Agent or infiltrator outfit. Randomizer. Servile. Very short. Currently glowing white. Kelandon. Not too sure, but human and carries a slith spear. Throw in some Roman armor or something.

My signature is updated, the broken link is fixed, and moving Episode 3 is on my to-do list (so we all know what that means. :P ).

Never watched it. Link me to the episode in question, please.

Oh, come on. Salmon wears a red slip underneath his fishing outfit. Delicious Vlish is a vlish wearing a kilt. Jeran carries a sword slung across his back big enough to keep three chiropractors in business. You just lack imagination. Either that, or the guts. :P

That said, Dikiyoba certainly doesn't mind you or any one else making illustrations. Though, this being Spiderweb, perhaps Dikiyoba should say appropriate illustrations.

I mentioned a tavern in my last post. It got destroyed in the storm, of course, but it existed before then. :P

The second gathering is now occuring (according to the rather fluid time flow of any RP) and Dikiyoba wants to make another post fairly soon, so post now (according to the rather fluid time flow of any RP) if your character is attending.

Michael glanced behind him as he entered the temple. He half-suspected someone was following him; it was probably just exhaustion and shock. He didn't notice that a meeting was just beginning inside. He started to back out before he was noticed, but stopped. There was definitely something out there.

Kelleth spotted Michael and paused in his speech. "Come in, dear boy. It's not safe out there, you know."

"I'm not..." This was a common mistake, but Michael never felt any less awkward about it. Everyone was watching him.

"Hey, I think I remember you," an elderly man wheezed, "You were with that magician. Where is he?"

"Yes. I'm Michael. The midget." He winced--old habits die hard. "Magero... died... during the storm, and most of our supplies were ruined. I... I need food and a place to stay for the night. I can pay." Michael held out a few battered coins.

Kelleth hesitated. Normally, he would never make someone in need pay for kindness. But it was obvious that food was tight and would become tighter. He took the coins. "Please, sit down. Your offering will help us rebuild Emerald Cliff. Martin, fetch this man something to eat."

A few minutes later, Martin brought Michael a small tray of food. Michael sat in a corner while the meeting continued.

You know, I think that's the real value of xkcd. On their own, the cartoons aren't that funny. But if you can relate them to something, suddenly they're hilarious.

Dikiyoba could be wrong about that though. :P

Meh. Dikiyoba was looking forward to achieving Nobleman at 5000 posts, or even Noble at 4500. This just isn't the same.

That's not a custom title. That's a title update.

Dikiyoba is now disappointed. What do you mean, no more sage jokes? :P

First, I've gone through Episode 4 and fixed a few tiny errors. (For instance, Ermarian changed places relative to Polaris between the beginning of the story and the end and "Balm of Life potions" can only have been invented by the Department of Redundancy Department.)

Second, this episode will probably come out as slowly as Episode 4. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm pretty busy.

Third, I didn't see an element for Excalibur, so he needs to pick one.

And last but not least, Dikiyoba would like to thank everyone for sticking around through four episodes and into a fifth. Have fun!

Like mine! *Stabs madly*

All right, Jeran, pay attention now. That post is spam. It contains no information or humor and is therefore useless. Spam ticks other people off when they read it. Spam makes it difficult for me to read through this thread for reviews or ideas, as well as increasing the odds of this thread getting long enough to break or have to go into a new thread, neither of which are good things. And spam got the Episode 4 thread closed before at least one person had a chance to comment on the final chapters. In short, your spam is interfering with the purpose of this thread, and I do not have the patience to put up with it this time around. So. Knock. It. Off.

Yes, that sound you heard was Dikiyoba's patience snapping like a misfired rubber band, and Dikiyoba will be back with happier (or at least more mundane) announcements once Dikiyoba figures out where it landed.

You should have put in a couple Ts instead of the triskelions. Therefore, Dikiyoba will not congratulate you. :P

Anyway, environmental studies major. But Dikiyoba is taking next year off to work and travel around. Mostly work, in all probability.

Seriously, roamers do spit acid, which makes them an okay artila substitute. They do tend to run low on energy in longer battles, though. They are second-tier, so it does take some time to get them, but in G4 there was a canister at the end of the first chapter and training at the beginning of the second.

Oh, we don't really own KoL. We own it. If you don't understand the distinction, well, that's probably a good thing. Enables you to sleep at night.
