Personally, thinking that "woman" is a mighty wonderful thing all in all, I'd love to see this perfectly good descriptor reclaimed as a positive and powerful term to be said with admiration and respect.

They ruin too many perfectly good words given enough time.

I don't personally find it disrespectful, in fact I have more respect for a lot of women than I do for most men. My point was that some people might find it disrespectful, and my intention certainly wasn't to offend anyone.

Since Dikiyoba reads the threads for clues about the personality quirks and gimmicks, regular posting helps get you into a story eventually. I started out posting mostly in Avernum 4 about firebolt and acid spray effectiveness in spellcasting so now I'm one of the mages.

And now it's official that you're officially dead. I've updated the Appearances and Reviews pages.

Dikiyoba will have the next chapter out soon, assuming access to the Internet holds.

Although you missed part of the "Appearances" page; the member's section says "Total: 39; 2 dead" and the Overall section says "Total: 45; 1 dead." :P

Excellent! This means that I can relax, at last.

And then I can start begging Dikiyoba to revive me and re-include me in the story! :P

Hey! That's -X-'s job!

But, even if -X- is featured in the story, he will likely be killed, maimed, dismembered, or be portrayed as a noob. The inevitable hatred that people who know -X- always generate is finally developing.

No. Ephesos plans to pester Dikiyoba to reinclude him in the story. You're pestering Dikiyoba to be a part of Dikiyoba's story in any way, shape, or form.

I can't argue with that. Except for the noob part. While you have many... qualities, you are not a noob.

What is it with you and wanting everyone to hate you? Do you get some kind of bonus? Do you feed off of negative energy? Tell me, why do you desire hate so much?

Thanks. I'll fix it shortly. (Edit: Done.)

So Ephesos, how do you feel about becoming a deva? :P

Arghhhhhhhhh! You have just brought Dikiyoba one step closer to the inevitable day when Dikiyoba loses control so completely that Dikiyoba jumps on the table and starts hitting Dikiyoba's computer with a baseball bat while singing Beethoven's fifth. Why can't you leave Dikiyoba in peace?

That is the funniest inside joke I've heard in quite a while.

Btw, now that Ephesos is dead, how will I be revived? :P

Dikiyoba - I think that's the best use of Ed outside of scaring the mods with talk of his reappearance. I haven't seen that quote since it got dropped from the signature.

Deva? Meh, beats a zombie. I'd like to be revived eventually, though.

Oh, and was that quote a reference to arghhhhhhhhh's "horned slayer" stage, or something earlier? I don't remember Beethoven's fifth, though...

Regarding the reviews, Diki:
Of all the things I've said, you quoted, "Frankly, I'd rather not know what a radioactive enema feels like"?

You have to be careful about what you say since Dikiyoba keeps track of it to be used later. Even casual remarks in other threads are fodder for future chapters.

For some reason, the main definition on Urban Dictionary assumes that the most common use of the word is in this very joke... which is one of the stupider things I've seen lately. Try the second definition, or, better yet, just see the movie Clerks. And then see Clerks 2, I forget which one the joke is in.
