Whoops. That should have been 4, I think I know Mat Cauthon (is he one of the main characters in Eye of the World?), but didn't recognize the name.

I never read Dragonlance, however.

And...

In the abyss of the Deleted Geneforge Forum, Dikiyoba waits dreaming, yet she shall rise and her dominion shall cover the Earth.

Hmm...winter on the forum...and I didn't show up? I really like the cold.

Just how many episodes will there be? 6, like with Star Wars? OR shall there be as many episodes as there are Star Wars book? If so, then we would definitely need God's aid...

Dikiyoba, is the link to Episode 3 in your signature supposed to lead to Episode 1?

Hmm… it seems I still need to read those. I started to last week (I think), but I started reading at about 1:00 in the morning, and I had to get up the next day, so I didn't get very far. Looks like I have some catching up to do.
Take your time. Almost everyone else had to read it in short installments, after all.

Oops. Dikiyoba just changed the name and forgot to change the URL. It's fixed now.

I sincerely hope that the Dintiraden (the one in the episode) is not planning to put those snakes on a plane...

Snakes on a plane isn't nearly as bad as snakes on a line.

Yay! Prose!

I'm actually in the first scene... I'm amazed. And... it's prose! Yay!

But, snakes? Dare I ask... are they... on a plane?!? :P

What else would you call this?

I apologize if this incident still has you mildly upset at me. It never was my intention. And to everyone who reads this, please do not revive the above thread. That was a headache for everyone involved.

EDIT: By the way, the 'nice' I said in the above quote was sarcastic. I guess it just is very difficult to pull of successfully when you can't hear the speaker's tone of voice.

Of course not. Have you seen many planes flying around the boards lately?

It's the first time I've attempted to type it. Most of the time I just copy the name when I need it.

On an interesting side note, If you hit the quote button on someone's post while said someone is editing it, you'll see the edits the person made so far. :eek:

I'm sure someone somewhere has carried a steak on to a plane. Or maybe some top-class airline serves in-flight steaks. :)

Snakes are good eating. Steaks are better eating, but if they are in short supply snakes will do just as well.

TM should be let back. This place is dullsville without him. I even feel like telling myself to DIE!!!, just for old times sake.

Steaks on a Plane would be fantastic. Better than a tiny bag with nine peanuts in it. And 3oz of soda.

I like the new format and so far the story. Too bad I have to go back to beta testing so my post count will drop even more.

A post dedicated to Dikiyoba The Great!?!? -X- will now begin to consecrate this topic! -X- begins to chant in monotone.

:o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Mighty Urrrachti, I ask you to release/
Essence sacrificed, by your loyal priest/
And use it to sanctify this ground, in peace/
For mighty ones now walk here/
Your grace shines upon them/
And greatness follows their feet/
Mighty Urrrachti, I ask you to release/
Essence sacrificed, by your loyal priest/
Hey-oh Hayasankteh, Hey-oh Hayasankteh/
Holy ground is now this forum, tread upon it with care/
Or face the wrath of Mighty.../

For the record, Mat Cauthon makes WoT worth reading. Really, I would have died of an overdose of repressed self-pity if Rand and Perrin were the only ta'veren in the series.

Since we're on the topic, I'm thinking that a good addition to the Spiderweb pantheon would be Larry Wall. Why, you ask? Well, first, Larry's a good fit: computer guy, frequent forumer, lack of sanity, etc. Moreover, he wrote the Pathologically Eclectic Rubbish Lister.

And what better rubbish is there to list than the breakdown of DikiScripts? Ladies/Gentlemen/Whatevers, I give you the product of a quarter of an hour of boredom: the DikiStats! True, as of right now, all it consists of is how many lines each person gets in the first two scripts. But there truly is no limit to how far this can go! See how many times your name is mentioned in the script (because deep down inside, you know you are an attention whore)! See what the average number of letters in your words are! Find out how often Dikiyoba uses the letter 'q'!

Episode I
Episode II

What? We need to post to keep this board alive, people! Would you rather I talk about Canadian bills that are about to be passed?

EDIT: Funny. I haven't seen the user 'Alorael, who stands up and looks around' before.

My appearances more than doubled in the second episode! :cool:

Mat Cauthon rocks, but he's not the best character.
Perrin Aybara for the win!

And why do you suppose that is, Tyranicus? Do you think it had something to do with your double posting? :P (Being alive for most of the script probably also had a lot to do with it.)

Thanks, Dintiradan. It may or may not prove useful, but it will certainly prove interesting.

Dikiyoba used it three times in the first two sentences of Act 1 of Episode 1 and then not at all during the rest of that act. Discuss. :P

What?! I rarely double-post. I occasionally do it by accident, and I sometimes deliberately double-post to bump a topic, but I'm not a chronic double poster like [i]some[/i] people around here.
