This is a very good script, but I rarely say 'woohoo!'. And I also see that I haven't appeared as often as I'd like.

I can't wait to read more!

Spammers will sell you herbal supplements to increase your post count. Have you tried any of those?

Oh, you might want to watch the side effects on those, though. May cause canning, nerve damage, or death, followed by zombiefication. Then you become one of the spammers too, mindlessly posting in a futile attempt to find some brains for sustenance. It's hopeless, so you wither away after several long years of pain and anguish (yes, even as a spam zombie). You begin to "die" again, pathetically unnoticed and alone in a foul corner of the forums, and as your mostly decomposed body rots off your bones you mindlessly think to yourself, "...brains... if only.. I.. hadn't.. cared..about.. post count..... braaains.... brai... br... b... b......" Your mindless capacity for thought degenerates, but you are kept in a cruel state of unlife for many months until the second end finally comes. Even then, you receive no rest, as the innumerable shards of your identity are flung to the winds, and you are condemned for eternity to wait and watch, selfless, mindless and hopeless.

We wouldn't want that to happen, would we?

Crokle sure seems down on post enhancers. We all know that there is scientific evidence proving that they have NO side effects. Besides, they are all natural. What easier way to gain a little well earned respect from the neighborhood?

Nice script Dikiyoba, but it seems that each forum goes down a little quicker than the last. I hope that the grand finale in General is as big a bang as it deserves.

I hope that it goes out with a BIG bang. Basically I'm hoping that the big finale in the General Forum ends the life of the Ur-Noob. What's more, in the end it would be cool if the spirits of all the dead Spiderwebbers, like Alorael, attack the noob army. It would be a good way to have all us dead guys get our revenge. Oh and also, maybe someone could ressurect us without being undead or whatever.

I'm just happy I'm not dead yet.

And for your information, I did not go around punching things whilst playing G3 as a pacifist. I dazed them and ran like hell.

That was a) in my original game as a Guardian that I abandoned and b) necessary because the little buggers surrounded me.

There is irony in this statement due to the fact that Wise Man has not died yet.

There is no new scene today. I've been thinking about Act 7, Scene 5 some. I came to the realization that I didn't like it and it didn't make sense. So I changed the last 6 or 7 lines of Scene 4 and rewrote most of Scene 5.(Sorry. Now you have to reread it. I apologize.) But besides the fact that I didn't like it, there's also another reason that it had to be rewritten:

quote:
Dikiyoba is alone in a small room, sitting at a desk, looking thoughtful.

Dikiyoba: Dikiyoba wonders what Dikiyoba will do today.

The ur-noob enters.

Dikiyoba: Oh no! What are you doing here? This isn't even part of the script.

Ur-noob: ACT SEVEN SCENE FIVE WAS SO LAME! IT WAS LOGICALLY FLAWED! THE PLOT SUCKED! THE WHOLE THING WAS STUPID AND IT WASN'T EVEN FUNNY!

Dikiyoba: So?

Ur-noob: SO IF YOU DON'T CHANGE IT, I WILL KILL YOU!

Dikiyoba: But Dikiyoba knows that you will kill me anyway. Why does it matter?

Ur-noob: IF YOU DON'T CHANGE IT, I WILL KILL YOU NOW!

Dikiyoba: Good point. Dikiyoba will change it.

Ur-noob: GOOD!

The ur-noob exits.

Dikiyoba: Well, Dikiyoba knows what to do today. Dikiyoba will rewrite Act 7, Scene 5.

Dikiyoba immediately grabs a pen and starts writing.
------------

Dikiyoba.

About realism, you do have a poetic lisense. Who says that in a universe where people live on a message board banning isn't as permanent as death is in our world? Your world doesn't even have the same laws of physics as ours. (As far as I know, living stick figures aren't very realistic either. :) ) Drakey banning himself was a pretty good scene and went well with the spirit of your script. I am not saying to switch it back, but for future reference, you don't have to change your script just because somebody thinks it's unrealistic.

EDIT: Says the person who edits every post he makes. :) (Although in 90% of cases it's just typos.)

Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

The possibilities are endless now. As long as one mod remains alive, we can engage in guerrilla warfare, get banned just as we are about to die, and get un-banned in a safe place.

Dikiyoba, this abandoned mining town I've gone to: is it filled with supernatural fog, complete with wraiths that materialize out of it, hungry for your eternal soul? Everywhere I look, I see more and more parallels to my scenario.

That is clearly the sound of Alorael's head hitting the keyboard as he loses consciousness. His last act was to hit the "Add reply" button in hopes that we would save him. Alas, poor Alorael.

I was quite surprised to see that I and Wanderer were not fighting alongside with Dintiradan.

Oh well. Maybe I'll get to live after all. :P

I had simply guessed that it was random interference from someone/something else in the room. Or just a horrendous typo brought on by a near-death experience.

Hey! That's Dikiyoba's job! *Dikiyoba grumbles about Dikiyoba's lousy Internet connection while waiting for it to return long enough to post this reply.*

Anyway, Act 8, Scene 1 is up.

-----------

I also made a few edits to Act 1 to include more members. The additions are below in bold.

Act 1, Scene 1:

quote:

The forum is very quiet. Alorael is stitching his next moniker into a quilt square. Thuryl is secretly posting and deleting, to make up for the days he missed last month. Saunders is eating a sandwich. Kelandon is instant messenging Marlenny. Drakefyre is deciding which detail of Geneforge 4 to release, and also is deciding whether to check it for accuracy or not. Schrodinger is busy adding to the Avernum 4 walkthrough. Imban is busy being eveyone everywhere, though it looks suspiciously like meditating. Suddenly, Delicious Vlish runs in.
Act 1, Scene 2:

quote:
Kelandon: Next! Well, you look fine. No blemishes on your account. Of course, you haven't ever posted. And you look fine too. Just came here for technical help? Sorry about all this. Shaper Lord, what do you have to say for yourself?

Shaper Lord: This forum is stupid. I don't see why anyone would waste their time attacking it, let alone defending it.

Kelandon: Well, you don't have to. But you won't get any more chances to insult it, either.

Shaper Lord disappears in a cloud of smoke.
Drakefyre enters.
-----------

Edit: Oh yeah. I also changed Eddie's name to Commander Eddie. That's all. For now.
