Page 19. Has it really been that long?

Only 22 living Spiderwebbers. I'm among them...but I haven't appeared much.

It's still good writing, though. It's chilling how the Ur-Noob could survive Divine Retribution like that. Perhaps he's...undead?

28, actually. There's still five mods left alive. And I forgot that Enraged Slith made a brief appearance, which makes the total members left alive 23.

Zeviz, I fixed the typo back in Act 8 you noted.

Specifically, what about it? (And why is GoldenKing missing it? He's been begging for such an appearance.)

I'm greatly enjoying this script. It really brought me up to date on the current people in the forums and their quirks. I'm assuming I am a dead lurker at this point. Anyway, keep up the good writing.

So, when am I coming back? Evil Overlords have a strange tendancy to inexplicably return in sequels, or so I have heard.

Ah, I had just seen disgusting... and then I read "good" without the correct definition in mind. I get it now... but fix my RETRIBUTION!!! line.

Remember how I said I wouldn't be able to do a scene today? Well, I didn't realize how literally that would work out. I can't edit my site. I can look at it and I can log into my account, but I can't edit it. I shall see what tomorrow brings. If worst comes to worst, I have a backup site.

Edit: I managed to edit the counter paragraph, but this took five or six tries spread out over a few hours to do so. 36 hits in about twelve hours. Of course, about six or seven of those hits was me.

Never played Geneforge beyond the first few minutes of the first demo. I've kind of figured out what the thorns are by reading the Dikiscript.

The next two scenes are up. Unfortunately, I still can't edit my Freewebs site, so I was forced to put the next two scenes on my other site.

And yet, you're three-quarters of the way there. Dikiyoba combined razordisks and reaper batons to form reaperdisks. Exactly what they look like and how they work is still open to interpretation, though.

That's right. Take advantage of my Geneforge ignorance. Laugh if you want. I'll just be planning your timely demise in the meantime...

Good stuff, though... but I feel like Demonslayer should've been smashed back in the Avernum trilogy forum.

Did you intentionally create an Avernum party, Dikiyoba?

Between this and the bug somebody found that allows you to use human graphics for nephils and sliths, it looks like if I ever play A4 again, I can have a real party, rather than coming up with contrived superhero names to fit my four spandex-clas nephils.

The Demonslayer bit was nice.

Freewebs is working for me again, so I've moved all the scenes over to it and updated the appearances page. You will notice that there are two new scenes up.

Two of you were kind enough to leave comments on the script itself.

This just keeps getting better. A good break from the old routine as well. Not that much fighting, dying and retreating going on.
Originally by Croikle:

Yeah, more plot and interesting stuff, and less "random spidwebber kills some n00bs and dies an improbable death." I like it a lot.

Originally by Slartucker:

No, not intentionally. It just happened. That's my super-consciousness at work.

Originally by Arancaytar:

It's been called "SpiderWeb: Attack of the Noobs" since the very beginning. All StarWars parodies must have that line, even if it has nothing to do with StarWars.

Where does the tradition of the fluffy turtles come from anyway? I've always just accepted that fluffy turltes and kittens are just a part of spiderweb canon, but this script made me wonder when and where they came from??

Room 3. (An AIM chatroom that preceded current "spidweb" chatroom.)

Their arrival was described by somebody before... (*goes to search*)... here: http://www.ironycentral.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=003219;p=4#000089

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.
