I don't see your point. I don't need sound to conclude that Scarface is too violent a movie for my liking, what's the difference?

Eh, I forgot to include Amadis concerned about Ferrrald and Shamgar not returning, but I don't think it's important.

Goldenking: I believe phalanx are a bit out of place, but my judgment is a bit obscured by Age of Empires.

Amadis patrolled the streets searching for prey. He didn't receive the same thrill since acquiring the title of a wanted man, but the same hormones still did the trick. His tricks, though, were far superior to that of the biological.

Among his skills included a keen eye, one so keen he took special interest in a woman in the distance. Something about her was similar to the Telkavothites in Dellston, yet he kept his position. She moved closer and he caught sight of several identifying features. Assured by his conclusions, he stalked her from a distance.

However, she appeared to possess a keen sense of her surroundings. Amadis took note of this, only to lose sight of her all together. Frightened by his situation he sprinted away from his current position.

The woman materialized in front of him. They exchanged dumbfounded expressions for a while, halted by the woman speaking, "Perhaps you are The Ingenuity?"

Amadis glared, for he knew she had the answer. He replied with a fib, "Excuse me, but my name is Derek, and I have no chance of ever acquiring a title."

"I tell you sir, I have little time for excuses."

"I happen to know of a nice glove shop near Hawkes Manse. Why don't you go there? I don't have time for this."

Karnold Province/Amniro
Ferrrald has acquired a child-like fascination with whomever trail-blazed through the trees with him. However, inspite of numerous questions, he received little more than the name Amarfrra, spoken in a seemingly automated voice.

Shamgar seemed fascinated as well, particularly interested by his cloaking abilities. Meanwhile Amarfrra guided the two a small brook.

"Drrrink," Amarfrra stated. His voice expressed absolutely nothing, which was quite frightening to the other nephil with him.

The two thieves complied obediently. After a few minutes they left and headed south.

Hours later they arrived in Amniro. Amarfrra remained with them, seemingly waiting for something. Shamgar remained tense, keeping his hand near his precious shuriken. Ferrrald meanwhile stared mutely at the other of his kind.

Lorelei
Amadis sheepishly opened the door to the glove shop, not surprised that this mystery woman was present.

"Alright," Amadis stuttered, "What have you here?"

"I seek The Ingenuity," she replied.

"Yes, yes I am he," he answered, "I'm sure Luscinda here can attest to this."

The woman approached Luscinda, reaching under the counter. The wall in the corner receded, leaving Amadis very impressed.

Luscinda tagged along with them, for the purpose of security. Amadis babbled formally for a time and then said the following, "I have little else to say besides what was contained in my letter, but I insist that you explain your purpose here."

The woman simply stated her name as Allison and replied, "You seemed to have quenched Telkavoth's curiosity. I shall be leaving now."

Amadis and Luscinda followed Allison out of the back room. As they entered, the sound of rattling metal became evident. Guards crashed through the door, wielding their arrogant sense of authority.

"Amadis Ducante, you are under arrest for numerous crimes. All those not affiliated with the town guard in this room shall be detained unt..."

Battle ensued. There were about six guards, leaving Amadis and Allison widely outnumbered. The guards had their interest on all three in the shop, which was proceeded by unsheathing of weapons.

Amadis withdrew his dagger, which still held the same wicked green glow. He quickly dispatched two guards assailing him, fatally stabbing another. Allison smote two others, the remaining guard standing over Luscinda.

Amadis removed his dart gun and fired. The guard fell lazily. Afterwards Amadis went about slaying the unconscious guards, while Allison sat behind the counter.

"She's wounded," Allison said.

"She can wait," Amadis retorted, "I have plenty of room to stuff these bodies."

Several hours passed. Allison had used her weak healing powers on Luscinda, while Amadis took bodies into the conference room below. With Luscinda unconscious, Amadis resorted to scrubbing the floors himself. Allison left shortly afterwards, followed by Luscinda waking up. Luscinda attended to her wound quietly, while Amadis had summoned several amateur theives to finish the mess.

I doubt Bush's endorsement means much to most of the American populace.

Mexico is already attacking us in a stretching the truth sort of way. Their president encourages people to come to the U.S. and send back money to the government. He also says that anywhere Mexicans are is Mexico.

Yay for conspiracies!

It's quite possible that Jeff's story itself could have been influenced by an old novel. However, being the man he is, I assume the tale is largely original. That a sci-fi (correct?) series produces a parody of an RPG isn't entirely out of question, but I'm leaning towards no, the reason being how you described the justice jury.

As far as the Golden Rule:

I interpret this in a rather simple way. I hate gifts (strange child that I am), but others do. I simply say "If I did think that way, how would I want to be treated?" I'm certainly nowhere near applying this 100% of the time, but it's a concept I try to live by.

I wonder who here speaks Cantonese or Arabic, for Arabic is certainly a difficult second language.

Other gender identification? Does that denote a hermaphrodite, or someone with a deformed 23rd set of chromosomes?

Edit: 21st?
Edit2: 23st? Yikes! Two in row!

Fear, that makes sense. I guess I shouldn't consider CBS news as canon. But I also forgot American lore of geography is terribly, terribly sad.

I'm surprised Romney pulled out after having a dominating victory in Utah (90% of republican votes). His speech about it was really condemning though. I'm even more surprised by the fact Giuliani got hammered so much by the media.

Why are Europeans so interested in American politics? I never see any news about elections in other countries.

I think you're being unreasonable with the amount of military prowess.

Amadis told me about some plans, but I'm not sure how I'll incorporate his ideas into my next post.

Geothermal energy doesn't offer much expansion at all. Wind energy is only practical in particularly windy places like Northern Nevada.

If only the real world were like SimCity 2000. Then we could elevate a big hill, make water flow from some unknown source down all sides, and blanket the hill in hydroelectric dams.

That's how I took care of energy problems in that game. :cool:
